Huh. I have run into another piece of information that I thought everyone had but apparently they don't.

I thought everyone knew that Dick Grayson and his parents had a circus trapeze act and his parents died because someone tampered with their equipment and then Bruce Wayne adopted Dick and that's how he eventually became Robin and then Nightwing.

Honestly, I thought that was a common knowledge thing.

It...isn't? I guess I could see how people would only know that Dick is Bruce's youthful ward. I kinda thought the circus background was common knowledge though. Or blindly obvious thanks to that costume.

See, someone is writing BSG as DCU fic. With Lee Adama as Nightwing. And the fic references "The Flying Adamas" and their trapeze act. And all the other commenters were like "ZOMG, what a brilliant way to work in Lee's talent in the air!" And I was like "...but... that's... Nightwing canon..."

People really don't know this?

I Cannot Hide What I Am

I must be sad when I have cause and smile
at no man's jests, eat when I have stomach and wait
for no man's leisure, sleep when I am drowsy and
tend on no man's business, laugh when I am merry and
claw no man in his humour...
I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in
his grace, and it better fits my blood to be
disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob
love from any: in this, though I cannot be said to
be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied
but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with
a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I
have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my
mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do
my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and
seek not to alter me.
