Wow that was amazing except for Tim's mom. I wanted to slap her across the face for totally being a jerk to Jason. But that really was good it made me laugh, get angry, and even cry a little.

Excuse me as I go curl up in a ball of feels. It's okay, Tim. You can come with me and we can cry together from the beautiful story. Very well done, love the story...wanna cry my heart out but it's in a good way. This made me so unbelievably happy...minus Jason dying that's always hard. I loved it though, I love Jason having sappy moments and not being sappy about them.

| grownup chapter 1 . 8/10/2013
This was so cute and then bam you had to hit me in the emotions as hard as you could. That was mean.
Great, but mean.

I really loved this piece and how you used it to paint the judgmental side of the Gotham high society set and established how removed from that set Bruce actually is. I also felt that you really captured the uniqueness of the main characters while giving some depth to some of hose who are unknown (Tim's parents are really ambiguous in my mind). I felt you gave us a nice look into the early years of Bruce and Jason's relationship before the Joker came along. I also loved how you portrayed Jason himself as being cocky, brash and bold, absolutely unafraid to speak his mind or stand up for himself. You also really captured who Jason was and showed us how he is different from Dick (and from Tim). Great job.
Some lines I really loved:
((While Mother huffed over a wealthy man taking in a filthy street rat))-Oooh, what a snitchy twitch! Really loved how you painted Tim's mother as the typical high society woman (judging a book by its cover and deeming it unworthy her time or favor).
((Mr. Wayne's smile was near blinding. His entire face lit up at the question.))-I really loved that you show us how much Bruce enjoyed having Jason in his life. It is a beautiful parody of the relationship we get once Jason is resurrected (and is manipulated by Talia but that is my geekiness showing now). You also show the influence that Dick had over Bruce, smoothing some of the dark edges (...that Joker blackens with blood...again geekiness shining through) and making him seem more human, more approachable. Very awesome.
(("Timothy!" Mother snapped. "You are not to go near that boy, understand? He's a criminal and you should stay as far away from him as possible. His public school friends will be just as bad."))-I repeat...frigging snitchy twitch!
(("The boy is nothing more than a stray dog. Wayne was missing Grayson and decided to rescue this new one from the streets because he felt sorry for it. But you cannot change a dog's pedigree; once a mutt, always a mutt," said Christopher.))-I hate these lines ( not because they are bad!) because they so accurately represent how a lot of our society feels about people they find to be less than them. Very powerful line because of the emotions it invokes within me ( a good thing!).
((The fun ended when Timothy's mother flew in like a hurricane, her eyes dark and angry, and her mouth in a thin line. She roughly tugged Timothy away from the TV; his father quickly scooped up his underwear and winked at Timothy when it disappeared out of sight.))-I loved the duality of mom bring a snobby twitch with dad being more laid back and understanding (and maybe more accepting) of the situation.
((his mother huffed and mumbled about leopards never changing their spots.))-I love how she makes this assumption without knowing how it is that Jason died ( not that she'd care). Know what they say about making assumptions...
A couple minor critiques:
((Alice whined,/interjected,/disdainfully, ))- just a period. This was a repeated issue I noticed as I kept reading, which is why I only placed three examples. Common grammatical mistake.
((Jason (who he was sure they were talking about)- I would drop the parenthesis. They ruin the flow for me because of the distraction they present.
((Timothy repeated, louder ((this time))-just needed a little smoothing.
((converse))- I know you mean sneakers, but I would put it just in case because not every one might know what you mean.
((Time learned that))-just a small fix but time should be Tim.
In all this was a great little one shot that absolutely set the stage for the two Robins to meet in the future (if this was DC verse) with Jason having no recollection of the meeting and Tim not being able to bring himself to remind Jason of when he was happy and when he enjoyed being a hero. Absolutely great job!
