Anonymous said: (Dick and Cass) The great thing about working with Black Bat was that you didn't have to speak. She read body language so well that picking up on signals to perform silent work was effortless. The bad thing about working with Black Bat was that you didn't have to speak. And boy did Nightwing like to talk.

It wasn’t like he wasn’t used to the silent types. Bruce could probably write about about the effectiveness of a grunt. It was that with Cass there was nothing to bounce off of. They communicated so well with gestures and looks that talking wasn’t needed, and only seemed to interrupt their conversation of: where did you see it? Over there. Then we should go that way. You go high and I’ll go low.
Dick would talk, but there would be no grunt or affirmative. Cass was listening, sometimes even amused by his dialogue, but her silence made him feel like he was talking to empty air.
It’s good we’re not enemies, he thought. I don’t think I could stand a villain who doesn’t do witty banter—or maybe I’d be the villain? Cass is more the hero type really.
