Hi,
I'm Friday. I'm a pretty good sidekick with pretty good side flips. Maybe we can be friends? Maybe we can read comics? I can write you a story, we can make some allegories! I hope you like fun, it is way better than guns. Eat all your vegetables!
I look a lot like Robin if you close your eyes
Big Barda by kisaru
From the artist:
From Michael Chabon’s “A Woman of Valour”“Barda  was up to the fight-any fight, and then some. The world she was born  into and the way she was raised had obliged her to learn to be strong,  vigilant, resourceful, and submissive to no one. But her intelligence  told her that conflict is a waste, of life and time and energy, and she  regretted it. She had her own narrative-a history of heartbreak,  hardship and achievement-and though it constituted only one part of the  larger mythology of Kirby’s epic, it was her part; she had earned it.  She saw the wrongness, the wickedness, the unreasoning cruelty of the  world, and though she had been trained to withstand it, her heart  rebelled. Mighty, she used her strength and risked her freedom to help  the weak. In time she would mutiny against the might-makes-right  strictures of her home, and attempt to form a partnership of physical  and intellectual equals-with Mister Miracle, her paramour, the love of  her life. In his company, in rare moments of quiet, she doffed her  armor, laid down her Mega-Rod, and made him a gift-both of them knowing  full well its value-of her vulnerability, her sorrow, the pain of her  childhood and youth. She was a valkyrie with a brain and an aching  heart.”
