Oh my god.
Life = made.
I don’t see how anyone could see how much we love each other and not be moved to the creation of fanfiction. We’re like Babs and Dinah! …WHICH WE SHOULD COSPLAY SOMEDAY.
WE SHOULD TOTALLY COSPLAY BABS AND DINAH.
I always saw us as being rather like Dick/Donna too actually. It’s where I got the “true platonic love” part of our ship tag. Like, you KNOW if Dick and Donna had tumblrs they would totally have late-night lovefests like we do: “I LOVE YOU.” “I LOVE YOU MORE.” “NO SHUT UP YOU ARE ADORABLE.” “TITANS FOREVER!!” “UGH YOU ARE SO CUTE I WISH I COULD BE HUGGING YOU RIGHT NOW.” “RIGHT BACK AT YOU HON.” “DID I MENTION THAT I LOVE YOU??”
… I should write fanfic of this actually.
But basically we are EPIC PLATONIC LOVE and I am not even remotely surprised that this has inspired fanfiction. EVERYONE SHOULD SHIP US.
OMFG THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE. Oh GOD that is so beautiful. They would absolutely stay up all night obnoxiously blogging about how much they love each other and how perfect the other one is until Oracle’s patience snaps and she kickbans both of them. …from the internet. The whole thing.
She can do that all right.
Of COURSE she can. She is the Oracle. She OWNS THE WORLD, okay. ESPECIALLY the parts of it that are online. XD
And Roy would totally get annoyed and send them messages like “GOD, could you two even BE any more sappy, you’re driving me nuts. *eyeroll*” and Dick and Donna would be all “Aw! C’mon Roy, we love you too! YOU SHOULD JOIN IN OUR LOVEFEST.” “OOH! And get Wally and Garth while you’re at it and then we can have a FAB FIVE LOVEFEST YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.” And Roy would just be all “You guys are making me nauseous.” But D&D would not even care because they would be too busy platonically squeeing over each other’s perfection and how much they adore each other.
I have a sneaking suspicion that DCnU is DC's way of recognizing that Donna!WW and Dick!Bats would likely have been so awesome that the world would just explode. AND YISSSS DAMIAN IN THERE TOO AND CASSIE AND TERRY LONGexcepthahanotsob but yeah, I do really suspect DC realized people expected the sidekicks to become the leaders and they did not feel like doing that.
The thing is, I don’t think Dick and Donna should have been Batman and Wonder Woman FOREVER. Absolutely not. I think those roles belong to Bruce and Diana, and I think Dick and Donna are really better off forming their own identities. In Dick’s case, especially, when he created the Nightwing persona, he established himself as a different kind of hero than Batman - and, although he was awesome as Batman, I think he is really the happiest and the most himself as Nightwing.
So it’s not that I wish Dick and Donna had never stopped being Batman and Wonder Woman. I just wish that DickBats and WW!Donna had overlapped and had enough time to do some awesome team-ups together (with added Damian and Wally and, sure, Cassie too!) before their mentors came back to take over again. Ah well. It’s a nice dream. :-(

"Thanks, Dick. I love you for this."

“Just trust me on this. And when I tell you, hold my hand… and don’t let go. Dick…I love you for this.”
“Well, the feeling’s mutual.”

Just having Dick/Donna feels over here, don’t mind me. BESTEST FRIENDS FOREVER.
It’s Donna’s birthday, didja know?
Also, I love finding parallels in comics. If you guys couldn’t tell. (Look at them, holding hands through the years. Literally as well as metaphorically. *sobs* Precious babies, I love them so much, okay.)
