Batman: -c- Robin, I’m on the west spire of the church. Report location.

Robin: -c- I’m just finishing checking on Oak Street, be there in 30 seconds.

Robin: -jumping across rooftops-

Batman: -c- I took out a few vandals and a gang fight. Not bad for a Christmas…

Bruce Wayne: -sitting with my papers set in neat piles across the dining room table, poring over old expense reports-

Diana Prince: -standing outside Wayne Manor, rings the doorbell and waits patiently-

The effect Bruce has had on my life is profound. There’s no question that knowing him had changed me, changed my relationship to the world, profoundly. I’ll admit that there were times when I felt restrained somehow… bridled. There were times when the mission seemed like a lot to carry… Times, even, when I wondered if the whole thing didn’t go against my essential nature. More often though, though, this work that I’ve done with Bruce has felt like an advocation, a perfect expression of everything I’ve ever been capable of becoming.
