A really captivating and emphatic take on Steph and by extension Jason, both characters I like, especially Steph, but don't know as much as I would like to.
Asking the same question over and over and getting different and identical information was a very nice build up to the end introspective.
Thank you so much for sharing this.

This story is amazing. So moving, so unique. Quiet and loud and scary and funny and loving and sad all at once. It's a beautiful tribute to two characters who were a heck of a lot more than the sum of their mistakes. The wrong Robins, perhaps, but still true ones. And I love the light that Stephanie and Jason shed on the rest of the clan, from Dick to Leslie to Alfred to Barbara. To Bruce.
Thanks so much for this.
(P.S. - The Christopher Robin analogy was inspired).

Oh wow. That's touching and awesome and a great glimpse at the batfamily.

Jason and Steph are two of the hardest characters of the Bat-verse for me to connect with - they both seem like "object lesson" characters most of the time in canon, more plot devices than people. This story showed me why I should love them, and what Batman sees in them.
Steph and Jason have a fire in them, the one that the more deliberate of the Bat family have carefully tended and fueled to burn low forever, and the way the two even Robins let their fire flare up makes them IMO more psychologically ...normal (and, in any other line of work, more healthy) than the others. Which is maybe why Steph can see that it wasn't some fatal flaw in his vigilante methods that did Jason in any more than the Batgirl persona was responsible for getting Babs crippled.
Summary: well told, with great character insights, as appears to be standard for your stories!

-sniffles- TT Poor Jason.
I like Steph, though. :)

You really did right by Steph in here. The Robin name has so much baggage on it and to be compared to Jason, arguably the heaviest of the bunch, couldn't be easy. This entire bit made me cheer:
Screw that. Batman didn't make a mistake when he picked Jason. And he didn't make a mistake when he picked me.
Let me tell you about Jason.
Jason Todd was born in the slums of Gotham City. His father was a crook, his mother a mess. He grew up on the streets. He ran and stole and fought and lied. Then he got a chance to fight everything that had made his world the hell it was before. He wasn't perfect. He made mistakes. He said the wrong things and he did the wrong things and he hurt people. But he fought for good and yeah, he screwed up a bunch of times, but he never quit, never, even though it killed him.
And people he was close to loved him.
So maybe I am like Jason.
But I don't think that's such a bad thing.
Rock on, Steph. Thank YOU very much for writing this.

I love Steph, and I have a soft spot for Jason. This is the best fic I've seen dealing with the two of them. Thanks for sharing it.

I... I think this is the most beautiful, most terrifying, most realistic and wonderful and sad thing I have read in a very, very long time. And about my favorite Robins.
This is canon. I don't care what anybody else says. I want to see this published.

This story is so absolutely breathtaking that I have trouble articulating my feelings about it. Stephanie slowly moving up the chain of people who knew Jason, from Tim to Leslie to Dick to Barbara to Alfred to the Bat himself, each time starting with the same simple question and getting so very much in response. That's structure, something a lot of writers ignore, and it in itself is perfect.
Not to mention the characterization and the voices and the interaction and the wow. Holy good writing, Batman. Incredible details, from the autopsy report to the difference between a roux and roulette. I was there for every second of it.
Stephanie moving from knowing nothing to knowing all that she could, and identifying with Jason so freaking much.
Eerie, man, just eerie.
If I weren't too shocked to cry, I would.

Wow. This is just amazing.

This is... good. That's not eloquent or encompassing but it's all I can say. It's hard to follow up three Robins especially when you're a person that reminds everyone of the deceased one (and especially when two of them were Dick and Tim). I always felt as if Steph and Jason were so alike, in the ways that counted. Jason was picked because Dick was gone and maybe that was a mistake. In my eyes, Jason was portrayed as who Bruce might have been if not for Leslie and Alfred. Steph was picked (perhaps in part) to lure back Tim to the mantle. I think she was shafted and I think Jason was too. He was so angry and volatile and no one remembers that in the last moments of his life, he was just loving his mom. Just like no one remembers Steph used to only (at first)don the Spoiler costume because of the Cluemaster.
This helped ease the part of me that detested what War Games did to the character of Stephanie and what One Year Later did to Jason.
