THIS WILL NEVER NOT BE FUNNY TO ME
WHO THE HELL THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO EVER LET TIM OUT OF THE HOUSE
Robin by Freddie Williams II
sometimes I get so confused
there’s actually people who don’t like Tim Drake
but how can you not like Tim Drake
just look at him
In which I am Tim Drake.
it doesn’t stop being funny to me
YES. They ust cant believe that they did something wrong, and at the same time they never were there for him. Even when Jack, all of a sudden, stayed at home and decided to be more closer with Tim, he still hadnt any idea, what was wrong.
The catch is, that Tim grew up as someone almost independent and untrustful, and he really cant understand how all this work, and if good things and promises is for real, or its another lie. And even when his father suddenly poped up from nowhere,.
it was already too late. All this postcards and gifts - its like pay offs (sorry, my English pretty bad), like we love you, but we wont tell it to you, better have this new toy), or smth. And yeah, child is problem in this situation, because
he needs to be loved, and have his parents, and so on.Poor Timmy. *made herself really sad* It really hurts to see same old problems in Robin, for example, because, uggghhh, he doesnt deserved this, nooo.
Oh, I also was really insulted with marriage of Jack and Dana. I really liked Dana, and I understand that Jack just fell in love, actually, but uh well Jack just forgot about his son again. Sure, why not, its okay Jack, do it again.
Oh, I agree. By the time Jack decided to start to give a damn, Tim was already about 15 and had a whole other life that was separate from his father’s. The only reason Tim even bothered with a pretense was because I still think Tim couldn’t disassociate the fact that Jack was still his dad. And he still wants his dad to love him despite being an awful parent.
It’s also why Tim and Bruce made such awesome partners in the beginning. Because Tim really had no desire for Bruce to be his dad. And Bruce had very little desire for Tim to be his son. It was a perfect situation until feelings and egos started getting involved.
So now you have Tim who is so used to being independent and on his own, now he’s being told what to do by a man who didn’t even want him for 14 years. I think this is where all those explosive arguments between Jack and Tim come from. Because Tim wants his dads love and affection, but at the same time it’s hypocritical for Jack to all of a sudden be telling Tim what to do and how to do it.
And Jack, while he did try, and I can appreciate that, often resorted back to casting Tim aside. One situation that always comes to mind is when Tim was sent to boarding school again.
Jack couldn’t control Tim, and so instead of trying other approaches, Jack threw money at the problem and sent Tim away. Not only that, but there are moments in the Robin comic where Jack is verbally abusive towards Tim.
I think in Jack, the reader can see where Tim’s temper comes from.
And, yes, while I do like Dana, and I think she was a healing factor between Jack and Tim (except that one time when she tried to kill Tim, omg) it did leave a bad taste in my mouth, because I do think Jack looked at this opportunity with Dana as a fresh start, a brand new family to start clean with. A wife he actually loved, as opposed to Janet who he was having marital problems with.
Tim doesn’t understand family dynamics because he never had them. His relationship with Steph probably the closest thing to healthy, and even then you saw the symptoms of what his child life was like by how he could be so controlling.
And Steph was good for Tim, in the fact that she never put up with his shit, but, in the end, Stephanie proved to Tim that he can’t really trust anyone, even her because of her own actions (and I’m not blaming anyone in this situation).
