    Summary

    Dick hadn't expected to present as an omega - none of them had - and it certainly threw his family and his team for a loop. But Dick honestly couldn't say he minded it. Being an omega felt right. He was proud of his new status.
    But of course, there are always complications, and Dick will have to learn to reign in his new instincts, the ones that demand he reach out and soothe the bonds of his pack-family-team whether they want him to or not.

    Summary

    Ignoring Superman and Wonder Woman, she grabbed Batman’s cloak, yanking him down to her height growling at him in a manner very similar to Hood at times. 

    “You promised that you would keep an eye on him.”

    “I am keeping an eye on him.”

    “B! That.is.not.what.I.meant.and.YOU.know.it. So, I’ll say again. What.the.actual.baguettes.is he doing here?!”

    “He refused to stay out the field.”

    The punch that followed echoed around the area as Batman clutched his jaw clicking it. Wonder Woman placed a hand on Superman’s shoulder stopping him from interfering as Batman cautiously let the tiny woman hiss at him.

    “You’re the croissant adult!”

    “Ladybug...”

    Summary

    “You know what the fucking problem is,” Tim snaps, the edges of his vision becoming tinted with a nauseating green. “This was supposed to end with Bruce.”

    “Right,” Damian deadpans, jaw clenched. “Because we always keep our promises don’t we, Hood?”

    And Tim hates that the first thought that springs to his mind is you were supposed to be better than him.

    Summary

    They deserved to pay. At first, Jason considered killing them. Then he toyed with a convoluted revenge plan involving decapitations and duffel bags and attacking the Replacement in the Tower to really show Bruce and Dick who was boss and the better Robin. But he dismissed both plans — they were way too basic, and Jason refused to ever come off as such. He was gay, for Pete’s sake! He had to be giving Cher vibes at all times.

    No. What Jason had in store was going to be far, far worse.

    Grimly, Jason ripped open the plastic bag his shipment from Etsy had arrived in. He shook out the Big Bird costume, smoothing errant feathers and fluff.

    Stupid Batman & Co. wouldn’t know what hit them.

    In other words:

    Jason dresses up as Big Bird and terrorizes his family.

    Summary

    It’s strange, in a sense. Jason’s story begins on the street; it begins with scraped knuckles and empty bottles and the lingering smell of rot.

    Robin’s story begins with a circus. As tight-lipped as Bruce can be, he recounts that tale like gospel, like he has to cling to it to tell up from down. And like a good little soldier, a good son, Jason etches it into his memory. Some days, he thinks it might as well be his own; every soft word Bruce has for him, every warm meal Alfred prepares feels like the unquestionable continuation of good times past. As if that’s how it’s always been. On some days, he believes his story begins with the circus too; it makes him feel like half a stranger in his own skin. 

     

    alternatively: against all expectations, Mary Grayson survives her fall. Many years later, Jason Todd is trying to find his footing in his new family while chasing the ghosts of the legacy he's struggling to make his own.

    Summary

    The tags do not disappoint. I promise. Also:
    - Story covers 5 years (next in the series continues from there)
    - OC is 16 and Tim is 15 at the start
    - Lots of fluff
    - OC, Tim, and Conner are a chaotic trio
    - Angst
    - OC becomes a vigilante
    - Jason gradually becomes a main character
    - Tim skateboards and is a quiet chaotic-good, coffee fuelled, control-freak with sprinkles of manipulative behaviour
    - Tim's parents are neglectful and mentally/emotionally abusive
    - Tim has seldom panic attacks, but they do happen
    - ANGST
    - Yes, that is a slash for both Jason and Tim. No, not at the same time. OC has issues. Still is a badass tho
    - SO MUCH FORESHADOWING
    - Batman and OC do not get along
    - OC and Jason get along really well
    - Jason becomes a crime lord

    TL;DR:
    Fluff? Angst? Tim? Jason? OC becomes a vigilante? Chaos? Batfam family dynamics? Here’s your seatbelt. Now, buckle up.

    Summary

    Jason is eighteen, with a kill count and a violent disposition, carrying a child he didn't ask for. As of a month ago he had a budding criminal empire and very detailed plans to murder more people for the sake of justice. His life is unfit for anyone sane, much less a child.

     

    ...So why the fuck is he considering keeping it?

    Summary

    He loses himself in blood and kevlar, but he always has.

    He doesn’t realize the difference.

    Bones cracked underneath his fists and the cowl has never fit so right.

    Skulls crack, blood sprays, and the shadows clutch him tighter.

    Or

    Ruin, Revive, Resurrect, Rebirth.

    Repeat.

    It's a cycle and Bruce does not know how to stop.

    Summary

    Two hours and thirty-three minutes after the kid has finally succumbed to sleep, Bruce shows up. He’s in full bat-mode; cowl, cape, and critical eyes.

    The air in the room is thick with tension as their eyes lock, harsh gazes cutting through the heavy air in symmetrical slices. Bruce’s face reveals nothing and yet Jason can hear the cogs spinning in his brain, dragging through grey matter and tearing neurons apart. Any idea of civility goes out the window as he lets the full fury show on his face with gritted teeth, a furrowed brow, and glaring eyes. His shoulders are tight though his touch is soft and gentle as he cards his hands through Tim’s hair.

    “Jason,” Bruce says in an almost level voice. Years of training allow Jason to hear the vowel that catches in Bruce’s throat and the well-hidden pain his his voice, and in response, Jason raises a brow. “Let him go.”

    He scoffs, arms tightening around the sleeping kid in his arms. “Yeah, that’s not happening, B.”

    Summary

    Robin is a light in the darkness, but who is Robin’s light?

    Batman may be Robin’s lord and master. He says jump and Robin says ‘how high?’ Tim wishes it were partners, but Tom knows better. He sees it all from the sidelines with clenched fists and a sharp tongue, always ready to step in when Bruce goes, in his estimations, too far with Tim.

    Tom is Tim’s brother.

    They both know who will win if Bruce ever makes Tim choose between them.

    In one universe, Janet and Jack Drake are blessed with twins: Timothy and Thomas.

    One becomes a superhero vigilante.

    The other becomes the world's greatest conman.

    (A series of ficlets, drabbles, and whatever exploring a world where Neal Caffrey and Tim Drake are twins.)

    Summary

    Robin got into crime fighting early - but at least Batman managed to keep him out of the cape until he was double digits in age. Batman would like some credit and acknowledgement for this fact (this minor miracle) - No one is going to give Batman credit for this fact.

    Summary

    Damian furrowed his brows at the figure of his father, he was cooking? That didn't make sense, Bruce couldn't cook to save his life. Not to mention he should be out on patrol right now. The figure turned and Damian froze, Bruce had buttons for eyes?
