And then I had to put something here

This is a little manga I wrote to show how a girl’s efforts to make someone hurting smile ends up revealing a similar compassion from the very boy she was trying to comfort. It shows how a little kindness can sometimes seem pointless but it can be contagious and turn around to help the person giving it more than the one receiving it. 

SDOHUFodshuf omg this is so so so so so cute I love iiiit ahhh

Nightwing (1996-2009) #33

"Just had a few questions, Harry."

Any canon where Dick doesn’t have an awesome grandfather-grandson relationship with Pop Haly  and just Haly’s Circus in general is canon I’m not interested in. Dick has so many extended families everywhere, and losing any of them takes away from his character.

*stares at New52* Ahem.

You obviously didn’t read the first story arc of the new 52 nightwing series. Dick and Haly’s relationship is just as strong, except now Haly is dead. He gave dick the circus, over his own son. Don’t you dare tell me that his relationship is weak in the new 52. I respect everything you said and have said in the past, except for this one comment

But…. I did. I read everything until the issue where Shiva appeared, and then I picked up after that story until I quit back last July.

My comment was about how Dick doesn’t have all of his family units anymore? Like he no longer has his Titans family, after issue #17 in the New52 he no longer has his Haly’s Circus family anymore, and the Bat Family is in shambles — no relationship shown with Tim, Damian’s dead, Dick’s “soon to be” dead as far as anyone knows outside of Bruce, and they keep going back and forth on his relationship with Bruce and Barbara.

So I don’t think I’m wrong about that?

Also, Pop Haly being dead keeps us from ever having a clear answer as to how involved he was with the Court of Owls. And even the notion that he would have given children of the circus up to them to be molded into Talons — whether he started the “tradition” or not — is really rather vile. And they were pretty strongly hinting that his involvement was deep.

Not that Pop Haly couldn’t be shown to not be a perfect guy, but that’s villainous behavior on a level that’s inconceivable for me. Maybe because it involves children and I’m super protective of kids — fictional or not — but it’s just not something I can budge on.

I’m sorry if I disappoint you :( I’m glad you were able to enjoy the New52’s Nightwing more than me. I just don’t like it, and I don’t see the stuff at Haly’s quite as kindly.

Thank you for explaining the issues I have with the Nightwing series in New 52 as well. And I read all the way up until issue #26 and only stopped because Forever Evil promised to derail everything.

Also: and lo, one did attempt to call someone in batfandom a fake geek/nerd/fan in order to undermind their opinions, and that someone did bring on the polite and civil education smackdown. /applause

Filed under this this this this this dick without family is like fish without water or bird without air just don't even talk to me if you believe New 52 supports this characterization
