    Summary

    “Thanks for checking on me, but I’m cold and tired and I’d really like to go home now.”

    “Ah, right. Here,” Tim pulled his own jacket off and swung it around her shoulders.

    She started, blinking as he pulled the hood up. “Wh- I can’t take your jacket!”

    “Sure you can,” Tim shrugged. It was cold, but he was headed back to the Institute anyway, and he had a spare there. It wasn’t far. 

    “No, really, I can’t. I don’t have any money to give you for it and-” 

    “Okay, okay,” Tim raised his hands in surrender. “Okay. I’ll just have to walk you home so you can give it back, then.”

    >>Wherein Tim walks home a waitress he just met, makes a fool of himself, and she calls him back.

    This came about because Tim Deserves Better and by God I'm going to give him Better.

    Summary

    "Tim, are you going to be the kind of boy that tells the teacher the dog ate your homework, or are you going to take responsibility and own that you left it on the floor for the dog to get a hold of?" Janet asked livid standing above the seven-year-old.

    Tim dutifully shook his head no while looking at the broken shards of glass that used to be a vase. Trying to understand what she meant by homework and dogs when he wasn't allowed to have any pets. The vase was utterly shattered. Tim had been playing when he slipped on the hardwood floors and bumped into a table that held the vase.

    Summary

    There was a body in the bay.

    Jason did not care for the body, or the metal vessel that interrupted his sleep. He did care, however, for the coppery scent of blood that filled his senses. It had been a long time since he had registered the tang of blood, but the taste and scent had been forever imprinted in his mind.

    AKA Mer!Jason stumbles across a familiar-looking body in Gotham's bay... (spoiler: it's Tim.)

    Summary

    "Hello?" Tim said into the intercom of the Wayne Manor Gate. "Can I come in, please?"

    "How may I help you, young sir?" a voice with a distinct British accent asked, his voice crackling over the radio. 

    Alfred. Tim thought. The Butler. 

    "Um. My name is Tim. Timothy Drake. I love next door? I have something to give you."

    Tim coughed weakly, catching the yellow carnation petal.

    Summary

    Dick didn't consider himself a particularly jealous man.

    It wouldn't be fair to the people around him if he were, exciting that ugly slick rot of a feeling in many of his past paramours. So no Dick Grayson was not a jealous man but it could be argued to say that he was protective over his loved ones.

    Maybe it stemmed from the fact that for all intensive purposes his loved ones died surprisingly often, a statistical outlier in the general tragedy of the human race. So we had to care, had to protect how to keep them around and in his eyesight for fear of them being gone when he blinks. But that did not make him a jealous man.

    Well, not a particularly jealous man,

    Summary

    “Look, Boyo. I get it. Daddy’s angry that you tried to off someone, even though you technically had nothing to do with the offing. But you can’t just give up on practicing” Klarion says, watching Teekl sniff at Tim before curling up in his lap.

    “Those things you do? With the strings? You think nobody else ever noticed?” Klarion asks when Tim doesn’t answer, causing Tim to startle and Teekl to look at both of them in contempt.

    “You know the strings?” Tim asks, ignoring everything else to hone in on this. Because Tim had always been the only ones to see them. The only ones to watch events unfold before they even happened.

    Because when you know the variables, suddenly choices seem a lot less set in stone.

    Summary

    Destruction itself is not a bad thing. Things are destroyed to make room for new creation. It’s how it’s always worked. A rotting tree provides nutrients to the soil for saplings and worms. A volcanic eruption creating new land over the course of generations. The flooding of the Nile providing fertile soil for farming.

    That is destruction that Tim had always been a part of.

    But this wasn’t that. This wasn’t destruction for the sake of creation.

    This was destruction for no cause whatsoever.
