Beautiful story, even with the inclusion of how vicious, spiteful, and flat-out odious predators can be.
I like the portrayals that remember Babs is originally older than Dick - a lot of recent stories are moving their ages closer together, and in YJ she's younger, so yours is excellent and more in my view.

I really like this fic. You have written Babs and Dick's relationship so well and handled the sexual harasment properly too. Everyone is in character and the story feels real. I also liked how you wrote bruce and dick having a conversation about their problems and feeling. I wish comics would deal with those things too from time to time.
There's a part in this fic I didn't quite understand though; why on earth did Jim Gordon drop the ice on dick when he was hiding behind the couch. The other thing (that doesn't really have much to do with this story) is that I personally don't like it when batman refer to robin as his soldier since it sounds so cold and distant.
Overall this is a really good story and If you are still writing (I noticed there hasn't been any updates since 2008) I would be very interested to read more from you. :)

I actually read this story a long time ago, and have re-read it many times, because it's so damn good. I just... It's just that awesome.

I really enjoyed this story and it goes right to my bookmarks. I loved how you've pictured and characterised Bruse, Babs and, of course, Dick. You made them to your own characters and yet they were true to the comics. Thank you for sharing this with us!

i really and truly enjoyed this story! i mostly liked the combination of campy vocabulary and serious storyline- it is an interesting rewrite of the inane comics of the gosh-wow era given depth and gravitas for the modern era.
wow. i sound like a prat, but i liked it.

From the title, I thought this fic would be geared toward exploring Dick and Babs' relationship and it did, but it was also so much more than that. That scene between Dick and Bruce was just perfect and very poignant and heartwarming. Excellent story!

This story is very good and very well made; I'm glad I found it, it was an excellent read. Congratulations.

Sweet, funny, touching and at least two dozen other adjectives synomynous to "awesome." There were so many great moments, among them Babs' save; Dick's very innocent, very heartfelt declaration of love; Bruce passionate defense of Dick. If anyone asked me about the Batfamily, I'd point them to this fic.
Thanks ever so for the great read!

I absolutely loved this story! Great job.

I was referred here by Equinox and agree wholeheartedly with her assessment. _ What a great Dick and Babs story. You wrote their characters so well and made me see them in a new light. And their relationships with the rest of the Bat family were right on. Great descriptions-I could picture being at the party, and hiding out in the boat. Beautiful job!

I read this story a while back and really liked it. When my friend asked me to suggest a couple good fics I remembered this one and went back to find it.
I love this story. It is a great picture of Dick and Babs and their love for eachother. If the story was only about that it would be great on its own but I think the fic is brilliant because it explores the relationship between Bruce and Dick. Chapter 8 was my favourite because Bruce tells his true feeling towards Dick. It's a great moment because it is Bruce Wayne speaking and not Batman. It is spoken from the heart by Bruce the personn, not Bruce Wayne the playboy- the mask that Batman wears, and that is what makes the moment great. So often it seems that Batman is without feeling. He is so stoic and although we know that he loves Dick, and is in awe of the boy he is never able to express his feelings and ends up pushing Dick away. It's great Dick accidently overheard Bruce because he needed to confirm that Bruce truly loves him as a son. (I hope that makes sense).
This fic is wonderful because it explores the relationship of the whole Bat family -Jim Gordon, Alfred, Bruce, Dick, and Barbra are all excellently portrayed.
Thank-you for a most enjoyable read. I'm adding this to my favourites list so I don't have to go looking for it when I'm craving a good story.
