Steph may be Nightwing, but Dick is still out there somewhere. I may not know where he is, but HE IS THERE.
Like, okay, remember that Smallville episode where Clark told Lois that he couldn’t live in a world where she didn’t love him? (I will refrain from making numerous sarcastic remarks about the reboot universe he’s currently living in just because I’ve said this all before and that’s not the point here. But. BREAK MY HEART, why don’t you, DC.)
Well, Bruce Wayne cannot live in a world where Dick Grayson does not exist. I’m sorry. He can’t. Despite the parallel, I don’t mean that in a romantic way at all. But Dick is Bruce’s joy and his hope and he’s the person who makes him believe that there is true goodness in the world. In Infinite Crisis when he had to reassure himself that the entire world hadn’t gone bad and twisted, he looked to Dick as his proof that some things in his world were genuinely good. Because Dick symbolizes that to him. And I’m sorry, I adore Stephanie to pieces, and she can be many things to Bruce, but she can never, EVER replace what Dick meant to him. She can’t.
And also, a DCU with no Dick Grayson is like a world with no heart and no sunshine and I don’t think I want to accept it, either. He doesn’t have to actually appear on page. In fact, I’m sure he won’t, and that’s as it should be. This is Stephanie’s well-deserved chance to shine.
But he is out there somewhere. NO ONE will make me believe anything else. NO ONE.
WHY ISN’T SMALLVILLE THE REGULAR DC UNIVERSE RIGHT NOW
This would be the kind of reboot shit I could pick up
Not this “oh well, Barbara was better at Batgirl so let’s bring that back and oh, don’t worry about Lois and Clark they aren’t really going to ever be an item in this universe because we don’t think that’s interesting”
And don’t even get me started on no Ollie/Dinah
I could still cut a bitch over that bullshit
Smallville can just FIX EVERYTHING that’s wrong with the reboot.
Bring in Babs as Oracle.
Bring in Cass as Batgirl (since Steph is Nightwing now, no problem there).
Dick can be… some superhero that isn’t Nightwing, IDK. BQM can think of something. As long as he’s written in-character, I don’t really care what he calls himself. (AND THEN HE AND BABS CAN GET MARRIED.)
Mia was already on Smallville, BRING BACK MIA and put Ollie with Dinah and start establishing the Arrow family.
Just… right all the wrongs. Why not? It’s its own universe anyway! So BQM can just make it the PERFECT universe while he’s at it. DC can go ahead and trash everything with their reboot, we’ll just stay happy in our perfect Smallville safe haven.
Well, a girl can dream… XD
Because I am still way too excited to stop posting.
But really, y’all need to learn about the wonder that is Stephanie Brown, that girl is the best thing on the planet. On any planet. In any universe. Ever.
Yep, same here.
… Except I’m totally not sorry. XD
What do you say, guys? Steph Appreciation Day on my blog in honor of this momentous news?
Trick question, I’m going to be posting nonstop Steph whether you like it or not. XD
I CAN”T HELP IT I’M JUST SO EXCITED!!!!! EEEEEEE MY GIRL IS COMING BACK!!!!!!!!
It’s just one giant party right now.
Cannot be tamed
