Robert Galbraith
“One of the earliest and most vivid memories of Robin’s childhood was of the day that the family dog had been put down. She herself had been too young to understand what her father was saying; she took the continuing existence of Bruno, her oldest brother’s beloved Labrador, for granted. Confused by her parents’ solemnity, she had turned to Stephen for a clue as to how to react, and all security had crumbled, for she had seen, for the first time in her short life, happiness and comfort drain out of his small and merry face, and his lips whiten as his mouth fell open. She had heard oblivion howling in the silence that preceded his awful scream of anguish, and then she had cried, inconsolably, not for Bruno, but for the terrifying grief of her brother.”
Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo's Calling

Glen Weldon
“I couldn't stand boy companions," he [Jules Feiffer] wrote in his 1965 essay " The Great Comic Book Heroes. "Robin was my own age. One need only look at him to see he could fight better, swing from a rope better, play ball better, eat better and live better...He was obviously an A student, the center of every circle, the one picked for greatness in the crowd—God, how I hate him. You can imagine how please I was when, years later, I heard he was a fag.”
Glen Weldon, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture

Patrick Gleason
“-Todo lo que he hecho en este año de la expiación ha terminado por dejar atrás sólo cenizas. Así que ríete cuanto quieras, chica. Ahora sé que no puedo deshacer lo que he hecho. Lo único que significa esta "R" es "ruina".
-En el fondo sabes que esta "R"no es la de "ruina". Cada vez que te la pones, haces lo mismo que tus hermanos. Luchas por lo correcto y honras el legado de quien te salvó de ti mismo. Esta "R" es la de "redención". Por eso quiero que sepas que... aunque ahora mismo te sientas como si estuvieras solo, y como si hubieras perdido a tu padre y a tus hermanos... has ganado una hermana.”
Patrick Gleason, Robin: Son of Batman, Volume 1: Year of Blood
