Every life you try to save dies - AutumnHobbit - Batman (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
He thinks of Alfred's disapproval, Dick's sorrow, and tries to bury the stab of pain in his chest. He hangs his head. He's killed so many people that he's almost lost count--no.

It's worse.

He hasn't kept count. He hasn't bothered.

And yet, the Joker still lives.

The joke really is on him.

But Dick didn’t know at the time that his job was more than playing bait and doing high-kicks. It was to mollify Bruce, keep him grounded. Human. Remind him of how fragile life is, how careful he has to be to walk his line. And Jason — brave, bold, invincible Jason — wasn’t up for that task. He shouldn’t have had to be at fifteen, young enough to think he’ll live forever and strong enough to fool Bruce.

A timeline in snapshots of Dick processing Jason's death.

It could be easy - WHUMPBBY - Batman (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
His boy is alive.
The thought takes over his mind and Bruce almost stops breathing –not that it will harm him in the long run, but the pretence of humanity is something he has buried down in his very bones, he can’t allow himself to let go of it, because one trip is enough to break stride and he can’t allow that to happen –especially now, that he knows… that his boy is alive.

the darkness will embrace me - crookedspoon - Batman - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Jason has never seen Dick this out-of-his-mind frightened before – hell, he thought Dick was immune to fear gas and huffed it for laughs or inspiration or whatever – and he's never wanted to think about something that could do this. It shouldn't be possible. Nothing should be scarier than Dick.

Or: Dick is hit with fear gas, and Jason is dealing with the quivering aftermath.

Jason saw it all happen before his eyes. The stupid little demonbrat jumping down right in front of his gun just as he was firing it. There was nothing he could have done to prevent it. That doesn't stop him from feeling guilty over it.

Wrong Step in the Right Direction - firefright - DCU [Archive of Our Own]
A moment of blind anger results in Nightwing breaking Batman's one rule, and wracked by guilt over both what he does and doesn't regret about his actions that night, Dick willingly chooses to serve out a prison sentence to atone for the deed. But not everyone agrees that jail is what he deserves in this situation, and after just three months of imprisonment, one of them decides to break Dick out.

In the Home - Chapter 1 - aloneintherain - Spider-Man - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
The Avengers have been infected, turned violent and aggressive against their will. And Peter, the only one unaffected, is trapped inside the Tower with six feral teammates.

 

“Natasha,” Peter says cautiously, “what happened here? Steve attacked me, and if there was ever a sign that something was wrong, it’s having the embodiment of Truth, Justice, and the American Way throw you across the room—”

Natasha comes closer, her stride controlled. Nothing necessarily out of the ordinary, but there’s something in her face, in her eyes—

Natasha lunges across the space, and slams into Peter, hard.
