Well. This absolutely broke my heart.
So, in canon, there are exactly two people we have seen canonically hug Cass as in, y’know, an actual hug.
But that’s not the characters’ fault. That’s the shame of the creative department. So I sorta “stretched” what constitutes a hug and let Cass hug it out with her family.
Damian enjoyed his the most, I’m sure. One-armed hug tackle of love!!!
That’s… that’s depressing. I was sure that there was more, but… Yeah. (Seriously, not even one with Steph that didn’t happen in Cass’s head?)
But physical contact! Yay! These photos are adorable. Especially the one with Tim and Robin going after… Harley?
(I’d totally hug Cass! If I was, you know, a comic book character.)
I was sooooooo sad looking through my archives for hugs. I just was disappointed beyond belief. The noises I was making were concerning Beatrice last night enough that she woke up and stared at me.
And yup — that’s from the Harley Quinn chase in “Night and Day” (seriously one of my just favorite Bat Family stories — it’s in the queue at renaramblesaboutcomics I’m excited to say!)
Yes yes and yes to hugging Cass. I kind of hug my trades weekly as it is lol. Real life Cass wouldn’t get out of my grasp X3
Sadly my drawing is far from being good enough to bring justice to Cass, but I saw this post and I was just sad. So I decided that she deserved at least one more real hug :)
OH MY GOODNESS THE PRECIOUSNESS
Everyone check out Epsymoon’s gorgeous fanart!!!! AHHH!!! This is great oh my gosh. I want to squeeze it forever!
Wait, what about this hug?
That doesn’t add to the actual number of people who’ve hugged her, I know, but it’s still a pretty important hug in her history and should be included, IMO. (I know Beechen writing Cass was the worst, and maybe that’s why you left it out, but I still have a lot of love for this particular moment.)
In any case - I don’t think I’ve ever properly realized that Bruce and Babs are the only people who’ve ever properly hugged Cass in canon, or that there have been so very few hugs at that! Unacceptable - Cass deserves all the hugs!
So, I am contributing more fanart to the cause:
(Note: This drawing is absolutely not mine - I wish I could draw like that - it is by the very talented emvie. It’s unfortunately been taken down from their blog, but you can still see the original post here.)
