How can you care so much about a character who is just a brat with no interesting development?

Alright, you rotten tater tot.  You brought this upon yourself.  You came into my askbox and left this message when I was posting a bunch of Damian Wayne.  You opened this box of crap cookies.  Now it’s time for you to eat them.  (Although this whole thing is very belated.  Because I needed some time to cool off after reading this when I first got it.  But I’m ready now.  And I came prepared, so I hope you are ready now.)

First of all, I have a serious bone to pick with people who think of Damian Wayne as being just a brat.  Just a brat.  He’s totally just a brat!  He’s never shown any character traits beyond being bratty.

It’s not like he’s ever shown intense emotion over the brutal deaths of children before.

It’s not like he struggles to control himself and improve himself and live up to everyone’s expectations…

image

…or gets hurt when those attempts aren’t acknowledged and treated as accomplishments.

image

And he’s never had any meaningful friendships with anyone for a reason other than his own personal gain, right?

image

image

He doesn’t grapple with his own inner demons.  He’s never had to figure out who he was, and it’s not like he’s ever shown an honest want to change or anything.

image

And obviously the only person he cares about is himself.

Yeah, he can be a badly behaved child sometimes.  Damian is prickly, I’m not going to argue about that.  He’s made some pretty piss-poor decisions, but he’s a little kidwho was raised in a seriously messed up way.  Give him a little bit of understanding, if not slack.  To diminish his character traits and boil all of his complexity down to “he’s just a brat” shows a gross misunderstanding of the character that I don’t even want to touch.

Now, as for your statement that he has “no interesting development”,  I simply have no idea what you mean.  Damian has one of the most interesting character arcs I have ever read, and he’s grown so much since his first appearance.  Whether you like him or not, or whether you think Damian has grown in the right direction or not, you can’t tell me that Damian hasn’t grown as a person.  

And all of that development was somehow… uninteresting to you?  I’d really hate to know what counts as interesting character development for you.  I mean… have you seen this kid?  He used to be so jumpy/uptight that you couldn’t even touch him before he’d wake up:

image

And he turned into this snuggly little pile of adorable buttface who’ll let his guard down enough that he can actually rest:

image

If you don’t wanna like Damian, that’s on you.  But at least dislike him for reasons that make sense, honey, and don’t bring your Damian hate to my doorstep unless you’re looking to be taught.

Really off topic of what is usually posed on this page but just thought I’d put it out there that I’m an avid LoK follower~
Spoiler for last episode of book 3 though so…

I just realised. Korra sounded a lot like herself in the Avatar state in the last episode of season 3 while Aang and herself pre-season 3 sounded so echo-y because Korra didn’t have their past lives with her because of what happened in season 2. Aang and pre-season 3 Korra had their past lives echoing with them while they were in the Avatar State.

Slytherin wasn’t the only founder to leave a concealed chamber at Hogwarts— before her death, Helga Huffelpuff created a secret room which would help all students, regardless of house affiliation or purity of blood. It’s been called many things throughout the centuries; today it’s known as the Room of Requirement.
