Jason Todd thought that he had left all thoughts of his sexuality behind when he'd decided to pursue a life of faith. Turns out, when Haly's Circus takes up residence in a local Gotham theatre and he catches a glimpse of one of the performers, he was very wrong about that. He's led to wonder if his pursuit of the church was ever really about faith at all, or just searching for a home he was never really meant to find...

Dick Grayson is nervous about the idea of setting up Haly's in one place after being a travelling circus for so long. But it's adapt or die when the circus comes into his ownership and he's hoping he's doing what's best. Problem is, he's lonely and Gotham is a cold, dark sort of city. Maybe he'll find a cure for his loneliness inside the warmth of a small inner city church.

The snow was coming down hard, blanketing the fairground in an impenetrable cloak of white.  It was the worst blizzard in years, they said – though folks had a tendency to exaggerate, and Jason figured they’d have one just as bad next year, and the year after.  That was the kind of luck he had.  The only saving grace was that the show hadn’t started up yet, and they didn’t have to deal with flocks of milling rubes on top of the snow.

Jason hated watching the performers warm up.  There was usually enough to do before the show to keep him occupied, head down and hands busy, but sometimes they had an easy setup and he was left idle while the gillies crowded up the midway, waiting for the show to start.  Jay knew that if he strayed outside the bigtop, he’d get roped into some task or other.  It was easier to hide out under the grandstand and cool his heels for a bit until they started letting people in for seating.  Then he had to make himself scarce again, of course.  No one wanted to see the roustabouts crawling like fleas around the seats meant for paying customers.

“You’re absolutely filthy.”

Jason knew he was probably crimson right to the tips of his ears.  He thought mortification might do away with his erection, but it only seemed to make it worse.  Even the freezing cold water in the wash basin couldn’t dampen his arousal.  He could feel Ra’s’s eyes on him as though the man was actually touching him

Kaitlyn Beilschwey - Circus AU thingy for silencing because things I ship
Silencing: “I see Dick as being pretty innocent as far as sex is concerned until Jay gets his hands on him.  Like, bbJay has seen dudes jacking off, it’s just part of life. But Dick has shared a sleeper car with his parents his whole life. But, omg, fumbling inexperienced makeouts/groping/frotting with Wally”

Vesti la Giubba by cherie_morte
Tartarus is not the first circus Jensen's worked, but it's certainly the creepiest. After months without work, Jensen's not really in the place to be picky, so he takes the contortionist job he's offered and rolls with it. The people aren't bad at least, and the ringleader, Jared, is as hot as he is mysterious. Jensen won't complain about a job that feeds him and gets him laid regularly, and it's not like curses are real, anyway.

god, this fic is everything. magic and the circus and found families. finding love even though you desperately don't want it. this fic makes you ache and yearn and want. yes, there is a happy ending.

Boy on Fire - SomeBratInAMask - DCU [Archive of Our Own]
It was almost impossible to envision Dick decked out in glitter and spandex. No matter how he’d reach out to stroke Eleanor as if he had seen greater heights than all the rainforests of the world could offer. No matter how his eyes danced like the circus or his lips played carnie games. Jason could not quite reconcile the kid before him with the Boy Wonder of small-time circus lore.


Jason joins Haly's Circus and learns to play with fire.

Summary: 1930s Circus AU. Master Shang’s Voyage of Destiny is one of the biggest, most spectacular attractions in the nation, billing the top performers in the industry. For circus manager Everett Young, though, that just adds up to a lot of work.

no hope of falling down - Fahye - Hannibal (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
A circus should be a series of miracles, barely scraped into existence. Will Graham is the celebrated aerialist of Cirque Dalmau; Hannibal Lecter is a new arrival with dangerous hands and more than a few secrets.
