Love this brief little moment of reassurance.

I really wish we got to see more of this kind of relationship between Dick and Cass.

top 5 best brother ever dick grayson moments ;)

*consults my handy-dandy tag*

#1 - The moment I consider “big brother Dick” to really have been born - giving Jason his blessing as Robin and telling him to call on him any time:

#2 - Reading Cinderella for Cass and acting out all the parts:

(Do I care that we never actually see this happen on-panel? No. No, I do not. It is still one of my all-time favorites, because it’s amazing and perfect and that is all.)

#3 - A thousand ninjas is just the start of what he would do for Tim:

#4 - His love and belief in Tim:

#5 - Teaching and reassuring Damian:

Only Batman could make two near-perfect, dedicated, talented boys be so completely modest. By refusing to let their egos grow at all and by forcing them to focus on work entirely. And never, ever telling them he loves them.

Looking back on scenes like this breaks my heart. Poor Tim has gotten so far now from where he wanted to be then. But I do love this moment between the two of them. Nothing like a ‘no you’re better’ conversation to pass the time.

Awwww I love this little scene. Tim’s so self-conscious and Dick is trying so hard to make him feel better about himself.

Dick has so many connections to other characters. In many ways, even more than Superman or Batman, Nightwing is the soul, the linchpin, of the DCU. He’s well respected by everyone, known to the JLA, the Titans, the Outsiders, Birds of Prey – everyone looks to him for advice, for friendship, for his skills. He’s the natural leader of the DCU.” - Phil Jimenez

~Casually reminds people that Dick Grayson is both The Heart and The Leader of the entire freakin’ DCU and if you don’t think that’s awesome then frankly I don’t even know what to do with you~

Why I love Dick #31648: He was always sharing the computer chair with his siblings

He is such an amazing big brother.

I think it also shows something about his approach to being Batman? He doesn’t really have that… controlling aspect that Bruce does. Don’t get me wrong - Dick can and does take control of a situation when necessary. He couldn’t be such a good leader if he couldn’t. But he fundamentally treats the people he works with as his equals, even when he’s technically the one “in charge”, and I think that’s something really important about him.

I think scene is extremely sweet.
First Dick calmly offers to bust the drug dealers’ lab together. We know Jason had fucked up the last time so this is in my opinion a very generous offer. Dick is trying to teach Jason, to help him with the experience he got as Robin and then Nightwing that Jay still hasn’t got.
Then, you have Dick giving him his Robin suit. Dick was angry just a couple of pages earlier, he was punching things around the Batcave and crushing newspapers because he had been kicked out and then replaced all that easily. We know he isn’t happy about this, we know he feels Bruce had betrayed him when he took Jason in (even if Jason luckily doesn’t know that).
But he’s able to look at it logically and not blame the poor kid. He willingly gives him the suit, tells him he will grow into it eventually and how he doesn’t need it any more. He doesn’t give him his blessing as Robin out loud but he’s making it pretty clear he accepts the new Boy Wonder.
And last but not least, he gives him his number because he knows living with only Bruce and Alfred as company can get pretty lonely, and he doesn’t want Jason to go through that. He also encourages him to talk, to not let things bottle up inside because that’s (in Dick’s own words, and I agree) Bruce’s biggest flaw.
So let’s review all Dick does for Jason in a single page:
> Offer Jason help crimefighting
> Give him his old Robin suit (and with it, his blessing to be Robin)
> Make sure Jason has someone to talk to about his problems
A+ Dick.
No wonder he’s a such a good brother and parental figure to Damian later (brb shamelessly pimping my friend’s blog).
FROM BATMAN 416

Reasons why your fave will never be as flawless as my fave. ;-)
Also, I have said it before, I’ll say it again: Dick and Jason had a good relationship. This scene here is from the very first issue where they met. And yes, Dick was angry that he’d been replaced as Robin and Bruce didn’t have the decency to tell him, but he was only angry at Bruce. He never blamed Jason, and after he’d confronted Bruce, he was able to make peace with the idea of a new Robin. He was a sweet and supportive older brother to Jason, and absolutely devastated at his death.
Jason, for his part, felt pressured to live up to Dick’s reputation, but he had no animosity towards Dick himself. He admired him and looked up to him. They genuinely liked each other.
I don’t understand why DC feels the need to keep retconning this.

More scene comparison! This time from Batman #416 and DCU Holiday Special (It’s a Wonderful Night), respectively. (If you’re interested, there is also a quite similar pre-Crisis scene with Dick and Jason here, which is adorbs, but I thought we’d keep it to stuff that’s in-continuity, at least theoretically.)

 So, Dick, I’ve just got a few questions, here:

1) Exactly how many of your old Robin costumes do you have lying around, anyway?

2) Exactly how many times have you pulled this stunt?

3) Exactly why would Jason and Tim want your old costumes when they both have their own, and that’s not even the version Tim wears*?

4) Exactly how hard did Damian punch you in the face when you tried pulling this shtick with him?

*Although they both seemed pretty happy to get it, so what the heck do I know.

Annnd the last part. Click here to start from the beginning and here for part 2. :)

Omg. This is the perfect ending. HA HA HA. Oh man. Those faces. Sob. I want to squish them all. I love big brother Dick over there, all SMILES. You can tell he’s both overwhelmed and completely charmed by his babies fighting over him. I adore Damian’s little sleepy face, but my favorite is how Tim seems to be cuddling into him, like, almost as if trying to become a part of him. It’s so cute and clingy. And Jason, that expression, and Steph is just precious. I can almost hear their conversation over there. “We can fix it, no problem!” “…Why would you want to?” Oh god. Babiiies. Precious babies~ And don’t think I missed that bandaid on Jason’s elbow. FUUU. Again, your detailng is just wonderful. And those OUTFITS are so perfectly cute. Ha ha. I have to say, even though there were no words, it’s so easy to see what’s going on. Really great job all around with this <3333

There is nothing more I can add to this perfect commentary. 

Excuse me while I collapse from the fluffiness. SO CUTE. I CANNOT EVEN HANDLE ALL OF THESE FEELINGS.

Of course, he’s not ALWAYS, annoying. Sometimes Dick listens. <3

The last page in particular gives me feelings.

TBH he was annoying.. like, twice or something. And then everyone thinks, oh he’s annoying all the time. -__-

There’s also a difference between teasing and being genuinely annoying. Honestly, I think the majority of the time when Dick teases Tim, it doesn’t genuinely annoy Tim. If anything, I think he probably likes it. I mean, look at his face here:

and here:

Both from the examples of Dick being annoying. But Tim’s face is, IMO, very much not the face of someone who is genuinely annoyed. It’s the face of someone who is happy and having fun with their big brother.

And that makes total sense to me. Tim is an only child and he was pretty alone growing up. He always had to act more mature than his age and he didn’t really have anyone to “play” with. When he and Dick play around and tease each other, I think Tim is not only having fun, it also makes him feel loved. He never had someone in his life like that until Dick came along (er… more accurately, until he came along and inserted himself into Dick’s life. Same difference.)

Now, granted, once or twice Dick has pulled pranks on Tim where Tim was clearly NOT having fun. That time he pretended to be dead and Tim was genuinely terrified? Not funny, IMO. Especially not in the Batfamily where the fear of losing someone you love is very real and ever-present. I have no doubt that Tim did not enjoy that particular instance of Dick’s sense of humor.

But the majority of the time? They’re just playing around. Tim might pull faces and act play-annoyed, but that doesn’t mean he’s truly bothered by anything Dick’s doing. He’s having fun, too.

Y’know, Dick and Tim are bros. There are many facets to a relationship like that. Sometimes brothers play around and tease each other. Sometimes they talk more seriously and support each other. In the end, it’s all coming from the same place - a place of loving each other and being close. Dick loves Tim. That’s true whether he’s playfully messing with him or being there for support and advice. There’s no contradiction here.
