    Summary

    “Hey,” Jim calls, when Hargrove doesn’t react at all, knocking again, louder and longer, “time to get up, kid.”

    Hargrove doesn’t so much as stir. On a whim, Jim tries the handle, a little taken aback to find the car unlocked. He pulls open the door, noting absently that the interior doesn’t smell of cheap beer and teenage hormones like he’d expected, and leans between the seats to shake Hargrove’s shoulder.

    His skin is ice cold. A sense of unease falls over Jim, and only grows stronger when he manages to turn Hargrove from his side onto his back, exposing his front, without the kid reacting at all.

    And then Jim gets a proper look at him. “Aw, shit.”

    [All Jim wants is a hot shower and some damn sleep. Instead, he adopts another stray.]

    Summary

    If he were someone else- someone better, Tim thinks he would still be in Gotham, playing the hero like in all the stories.

    But he's never been much for the stories, and it's hard to refuse Ra's when fighting him is the only time Tim feels alive.

    There are consequences for a corrupted youth, but perhaps it's better than the alternative.

    Summary

    It's a choice made on nothing but a gut feeling, but when Pru says that the four of them should run away together, Tim doesn't say no, and sometime in the two months after, he falls in love with the three of them.

    Summary

    Tim isn't sure what alerts him to the presence, but by the time he's aware that there was something there to be wary of, the disk is already flying, and then the body hits the ground.
