Wow, this was an excellent story. I don't think I've seen a better portrayal of Tim in general, though I'm very partial to a Tim that is overly fond of Bruce (and jealous of Damian for that particular layer of things). But I loved the way he summed up his childhood and his life and the way he repeatedly justified his out of character behavior by suggesting to himself that he should be allowed to do things like this once in awhile. The way he ended the fight between Dick and Bruce was absolutely perfect, and the follow up with Damian was great too. I wish Bruce got the chance to have a more fatherly moment, but I recognize that was not the point of this story, or this juncture in their lives. It is just what I crave. LOL
Great story, thanks for writing this!

I love this! A lot of the things that were said and brought up were so true, especially a lot of what Tim said and thought. Tim had every right to feel the way he did and he is right every one has an off day every once in a while and deserves to deal with it how ever they want to. It was so nice to see them all arguing and acting like a real family does.
You did a wonderful job writing this! Thanks so much for writing this!

Wow! I love the way you wrote this fic! It's amazing how you made them real! You truly brought the characters to life!

It was painfully beautiful, Tim has the right to speak his mind and to be cruelly honest and Dick desired the impossible.

omigod. I think I just found the best author on this site, no joke. I love it!

Amazing! Love how you characterized all of them. The Batfam is really dysfunctional and messed up, but at the end of the day they do what they need to do.

This is beautiful!
I’ve never seen anyone write such an accurate and in character fight between Dick and Bruce! The way you made it snowball was amazingly natural. And I connected so much with Tim. That inner narrative is so pointed and cruel when it escapes.

This is a great look at Tim!

This was great. Your writing is fluid, your characterization is fantastic, and your story really captures the essence of the bat family in that, sometimes, it's not really how a family should be. (But none are.) I appreciate that you had Tim stand up for Dick, too. I always wonder why no one seems to bring up the fact that Bruce has hit Dick before. And Damian's tiny "he wouldn't really do that, right?" just broke my heart.
You made me feel, and I love it even though at the same time I hate it because it HURTS, DUDE.

... This was a MASTERPIECE WITH GOLD WORDS...
The feels, the emotions, the burden, father's fears, son's thoughts, brothers' reactions... all in all it was dramatically lovely.
I cried silently with a sad face. I wanted to cry harder for Tim, for Dick or maybe for Bruce and Damian and even Jason.
This family got a lot really but hey family still a family no matter what happy, angry, sad they are, they still together in some point or another.
I liked how you bond the characters together. I liked how you express the inner thoughts of our baby bird's mind. I loved the interaction of Dickie to his siblings.
The love that they really need actually. I think Tim is right whenever I think of Bruce ways ... yup he has difficulties to show his real love towards his children. He loved them yes but can't send it right.
Dick your elder son can help you with that, he's a man of action who likes to express feelings for the ones he loves.
After all YOU ARE Batman's legacy Dick. Robins ARE YOUR legacy as well so they NEED YOU BIG BROTHER TOO (even if they didn't say it or show it).
They just need you to hug them tightly, kiss on their foreheads, say soothing words, and show a looooot of love.
Anyways back to you dear author, you deliver the honest messages from them to us readers. Ahhhhhh I love how you reflect their sorrow in depth cause it's struck me soooo haaaard in my tiny heart.
Well done my friend you deserve a trophy and Alfred's cookies.
Sorry for the long stupid emotional comment. I'll shut up for now and cry in the corner for a while
(Wished Jay was there in the fic. At least he's survived the drama or else he will shoot somebody Teehee. And Alfred mmmm yeah he's shopping so he's saved as well haha. Cass is the only one who is safe from all the Wayne's drama haha way to go girl) ... alright alright I'll stop bye !

You've finally gotten me to adore Tim. I've wanted to for so long, but for some reason, it just wasn't happening. Thank you so much.

Damian does love his siblings really. Perhaps a story into that would be nice.
