CAN WE JUST. CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW UPSET I AM?
THEY'RE GOING TO KILL DAMIAN WAYNE. I AM VERY FUCKING UPSET. ;________________;
I just. I would be equally upset if they killed any of the other members of the Batfamily, but let me tell you about my special relationship with Damian Motherfucking Wayne.
I have a long relationship with Batman, but until a few years ago that relationship was based almost entirely on the DC Animated Universe. My knowledge of comics canon was vague and outdated; I was somewhat aware of comics-specific characters such as Jason, Cass, and Tim (I'm making a distinction here between comics! and animated!Tim, they're very different), but only in the vaguest sense. I had barely ever in my life cracked a Batman comic.
Damian Wayne is literally half the reason I started reading Batman comics and participating in online Batfandom.
The whole story is convoluted and incredibly nerdy, but what it comes down to is I was role-play test-driving my take on Robin (from the Teen Titans animated series) on dear_mun, and among many other awesome characters (this is also how I discovered Deadpool) I met a Batman!Dick Grayson, and I met a Damian Wayne. This is shortly after Battle for the Cowl; Dick and Damo were our new dynamic duo. I was intrigued by what I learned about the current storyline–Bruce is dead? Dick is Batman? Holy shit!–and I fell instantly, deeply, madly in love with Damian Wayne. WHO IS THIS TINY, AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL DOUCHEBAG? I wanted to know. THIS TINY TWATWAFFLE, I LOVE HIM, I MUST KNOW MOOOOOOORE!
And the rest is history.
...So I am deeply, deeply NOT OKAY THAT DC IS KILLING HIM. NOT OKAY, DC. NOT OKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY.
So I'll just be here, sobbing my heart out until further notice, 'kay? i_i
