Damian asked with a scowl. "I can't bake," Bruce said.

“Went and got your arm broke in three places, did’ya? Crushed by a steel beam, good lord, kiddo. How did you manage that one?” Yikes, and it’s his dominant arm, as well. “If you have the report open you can read for yourself. I was pulling squatters from a collapsing building.” “Very heroic,” Jason says. Tim’s definitely been benched. There’s no way Bruce would let him back in the field with a massive cast all the way down his right arm. “Been going stir crazy on desk duty? You must be about to shoot yourself if you’re bored enough to be bothering me.”

There are words. Round, looping, childish letters in black ink beneath his collarbone. From Jason’s perspective, they appear to be written upside down, but he still manages to read them easily enough, and understand their chilling message. The Court of Owls has sentenced you to die. Oh, he thinks numbly, with a sickly sweep of dread running down his spine. Oh. Jason’s gaze shoots back up to the assassin, who is still clutching his left forearm tightly. There’s a definite shake to the man’s shoulders now, and Jason would bet his life that underneath the gauntlet he’s wearing are written the words The Court of what now? in his own blocky script.

The thing about Bruce is that Tim can never, ever see the moment where his internal flip happens. The logical extension of that is that there is no conscious shift for him, that this is as integral a part of who he is as becoming the Bat. That, too, falls under the heading of things Tim wonders about, but has no particular need to ever talk about. The thought only ever comes moments before he’s suddenly preoccupied. “Get on your knees,” Bruce says, almost mildly.

The boy in his yellow. His colours. His family’s colours. The kitchen door opens. Dick turns eagerly, uses the movement to try and get free of the suit, hopes against hope that it’s Alfred or Bruce – It isn’t. It’s another stranger. He’s got black hair and blue eyes like Bruce – like Jason, in fact – and he’s short and kind of thin; he’s wearing sweatpants and a t-shirt. Bare feet. There’s a scar at his neck. “Hey,” he says, smiles at Dick like he’s happy to see him. “You feeling OK?” “He doesn’t know who you are, Timmy,” says Jason mockingly. Then, softer, more bewildered, “He doesn’t know who any of us are.”

A Sufficiency
It was never difficult for Tim to get on his knees for Bruce, not the first time or any of the times between then and now. It was harder for Bruce to accept it and Tim understood why that was in the same way that it made something acidic and impatient burn in the back of his throat. He wasn’t any of Bruce’s ghosts or demons. There was an obvious reason Batman had Robin, and there was never any way Tim saw for Bruce to avoid having-- needing -- his boys.

"How were you bring-upped?" she asks. "Brought up. Ah, it was a long time ago, and very dull, Miss Cassandra," but something about his elbows means ouch, and hold, and fly.

Letters from Alternate Universes
The first letter appeared - inexplicably - at his window, tied to a brick and labeled "Alvin Draper" in an unfamiliar scrawl. Tim's first thought was that it was some type of threat. His second thought was that it was some kind of joke. (His third was that maybe, just maybe, he was becoming a little too paranoid.) After a trip to the Batcave turned up no traces of tricks, traps, or otherwise nefarious devices (only a set of fingerprints that led to another dead-end) he untied the knots and carefully peeled back the edge of the envelope.

blue electric angels
It pisses Robin off, furiously, instantly, utterly. No one should ever have to depend on the whims of one abandoned boy, one ferociously violent Peter Pan of a boy, in order to feel safe. No one should have to hope and pray for his presence the way some people pray to God as they walk through their own neighbourhood; no one should ever be dependent on the mysteries of company charity policies in order to be guaranteed the food, the shelter they need to survive. It’s not fucking good enough. It will never, ever, be good enough. It’s all they’ve got, so they’d better hang on to it. Call it an interim solution.

muscle memory
The next corpse isn’t a corpse yet, trussed up and left like some screwed up gift in the mouth of an alley along one of his regular nighttime routes. That man dies, but the next one doesn’t. Amy says, “It’s like reverse training the cat from hell.” Dick says, “What?” “They leave half-dead presents all over the place too.”

They don’t move the same, no; they move like they know each other’s moves inside and out better even than him and Nat (him and Steve) and it’s creepy gorgeous dangerous as all hell. He’s not sure if he wants to put them down like the maneaters they are or put himself in between them and let them take him down hard and soft and every which way in between that.

The ones that entertain and observe
Steph slowly untangled herself from the silks, making sure she wouldn't just loosen the wrong twist and fall another ten feet. She wasn't in anything resembling a position where she could land it without injury. She kicked out and with only a few more assaults on her dignity, she managed to right herself. "I'm not sure this is the best plan," Steph said. "Wouldn't it be easier to get one of us into the casino as a waiter or something?" "Waiters are busy from when they clock in until they clock out and have little reason to visit when they're off work and limited access on top of it," Dick said. "We tried sending me in as a waiter or a caterer couple times when I was Robin and it never paid off. I did manage to rock the bow tie and apron look pretty well though," he said proudly, like that was fashion forward or something, "and I got some pretty great tips. I think it was my hair."

Family Ties
Dick had taken to Robin like water; naturally, and with grace. There would be no stopping either of them, Alfred thought wryly. “There now,” he said, when the wound was wrapped. “Good as new.” Dick flexed his leg experimentally, running a hand down the bandage. He smiled brightly at Alfred. “Thanks to you.”

Rub-a-Dub Dub (A Bunch of Capes in the Tub)
“This is an intervention,” Dick said, jerking a thumb towards the banner. “You can’t keep ambushing people in the shower, Bruce! It’s getting weird!” “I’m Batman,” Bruce said, and swung a towel dramatically over his shoulders. If teenagers were going to invade his shower, he’d just go use the steam room down in the cave. “I can do whatever I want.” “Other sidekicks are starting to talk, you know!” Dick shouted after him.

How Jason Todd Stole Christmas
Jason didn’t celebrate anything for years after he came back. Though by rights, he figured, he ought to be celebrated. After all, hadn’t he come back from the dead? Didn’t he now perform miracles, just like the other guy? He laughed, but the dead sex traffickers didn’t appreciate the joke. What a bunch of stiffs, haha.

Natasha had tucked a stray lock of Sharon's hair behind her ear in a way that was much more tender than anything Sharon would have allowed Steve to do at that particular moment, and said simply, "I am not having any children." And so, that was it. At least, it was supposed to be.

Turning up the Turbo
“You're always going on and on about how much training I need, and I'm just saying, it just doesn't sound careful to me that I shouldn't know how to drive the car at least a little bit.” “Doesn't it.” He doesn't turn back to face her. The emphatic gesture she makes with her hands reflects on the surface of the computer screen, and she pretends not to have heard his interruption. “Suppose anything happens – suppose you're wounded, or drugged, and we need to get back to the Cave stat. If I can't drive the car, I couldn't get you here in time!” “Then it should make you feel better to know I'll leave you the car in my will.”

Taste The Green
Whatever the reason, nobody thought to warn Tim that when he stepped into the Batcave, he’d be confronted by the sight of Damian stretching on the mats, wearing the original Robin uniform. Taut red fabric across his chest, a slither of toned stomach visible underneath where it’s not quite long enough for Damian’s torso. Short cape that doesn’t quite cover the swell of his ass. And the shorts, bright green and obscenely tight. Maybe if Tim had been expecting it, he could have covered his reaction better. But he wasn’t and he didn’t and Damian had seen.
