    Summary

    "Matt," says Foggy, severely. "We are not some white suburban couple with marital issues. We cannot fix our problems by adding a child."

    Or:

    There is a child sitting on Matt’s couch. A living, breathing, human child, who represents all the pieces of Matt’s life that he’d rather forget.

    Summary

    When Matt was nine years old, he would listen to his father’s heartbeat in one ear and the sound of sirens in the other, and he would feel so alone that he might as well be the man on the goddamn moon. 

    Maybe that’s why it was so easy for Stick.

    Summary

    "I thought it’d be different when he got shot. I was going to be the one to do it. I wanted him dead so bad. But when I saw him, it was different. He was all scared. He was just some guy. It was all different,” Dick whispers. “I didn’t want it to be different. It shouldn’t be different. He took everything from me. I don’t even have my—” his fingers reach up as if to claw down the cuffs of his hoodie, then falter on his bare skin, remembering that it's no longer there, and scratch into his skin instead. His voice breaks. “He got everything.”

    Damian slowly unclips his cape. He hesitates. Then he wraps it around Dick’s shoulders.

    “Not,” Damian says, “everything.”

     
    (After Bruce's death, Damian struggles to shoulder the Batman mantle. He also struggles to keep a grieving street kid from getting himself killed.)

    Summary

    “I did this to you. I tried to kill you.” Dick looks at him pleadingly, voice trembling. “Didn’t I?”

    “It wasn’t you.”

    Dick says, hushed, “What if I do it again?”

    Bruce seizes him ferociously then and shakes him hard as terror floods him. “You won’t. You’re back now. You’re back now. Do you understand?” he growls.

     

    (Bruce and Dick haven't spoken in years. The Court of Owls changes that.)

    Summary

    He used to think that Batman needs a Robin.

    Now, Tim’s pretty sure that Robin was only ever a band-aid.

    He never tried to learn Batman’s identity, but he knows it, and Tim has no idea what to do next to save Gotham from Bruce Wayne’s violent rage.

    He becomes Batman’s shadow – never sidekick – trying to clean up the wreckage he leaves behind.

    A vulture, trying to remove decay before it has a chance to poison everything.

    Tim’s quest to save Gotham from Batman leads him to the most obvious victim – the man’s first Robin. But Dick Grayson’s grief is complex and deep, and not something the twelve-year-old has a fix for.

    What Tim Drake does have, however, is the know how to make money difficult to trace and a certain phone number.
