That’s beyond headcanon. That’s fact. I mean, what do you think they were doing while they were away for those two episodes?
During “Targets” : Sleepover at Wally’s. Robin invited Artemis, didn’t tell Wally. (Oh and didn’t tell Artemis they were going to Wally’s.) The two of them do their usual “bicker-flirting” until Wally’s mum and dad announce that dinner is ready, and that their is plenty enough food for an extra guest. (They always cook too much when Robin comes over, because Wally’s mum is convinced he doesn’t eat enough.)
Wally tries to go and eat in his room, but the whole family (including Uncle Barry and Aunt Iris) are curious about Artemis, so they make them sit at the table and turn Wally every shade of red by asking embarrassing questions. He eventually manages to shoo them away from his friends, but not before his Mum just happens to mention that this is the first time he’s ever brought a girl home.
They go up to Wally’s room, Artemis and Wally continue “bickering” with Robin making fun of both of them. Eventually, they end up sitting three in a row on Wally’s floor, leaning against his bed, with Robin in the middle. Artemis and Wally are appalled/thrilled to find out that they have the same taste in movies and video games, and get very competitive with each other in every game they play. (Of course, this means that Robin keeps winning, which infuriates both of them.)
It’s late and everyone but Robin gets sleepy. (Robin keeps Gotham hours. He’s never sleepy.) Of course, both Artemis and Wally are too competitive to admit to being tired. So, Robin waits until they are both starting to drift off, then carefully gets up and lays the sleeping Artemis against a suddenly wide awake Wally. He starts to protest, but Robin shushes him grinning, and tells him to be quiet unless he wants to wake her up.
Robin goes outside to the bathroom, when he comes back, he stops and looks through the gap in the door. Wally has pulled a blanket off of the bed, and wrapped it around Artemis, “accidentally” leaving his arm wrapped around her too. Wally is silently watching her sleep. Robin watches for a full minute. Wally’s gaze never leaves Artemis’s face. Robin grins.
(Oh, and by the way? Robin doesn’t take of his mask the whole time he is there. Wally’s family know he is Robin, after all.)
… Oh come on. I’m not the only one who things about this stuff… Am I? O.o?
