    Summary

    While trying to take down a drug cartel that deals with memory altering drugs, things go awry, and Batman wakes up with no recollection of the last five years.
    As a result, his family must now race against time to find the antidote, while also having to deal with a Bruce who still thinks Jason is Robin. A Bruce who doesn't recognise most of them. A Bruce far less jaded and cynical than the one they're used to. A Bruce who still cares.

    Summary

    Jack shakes his head, “I know I don’t have to tell you that the shit we do is hard, and it takes more than a talented attorney to do what we do. Not everyone can stomach it. Coming here isn’t going to remind anyone about justice – it’s going to break his notions of what criminal law is.”

    “John thinks he can handle it, and anyway, sometimes people need to be broken, Eichs.”

    “I’m not responsible for breaking anyone, okay?”

    “Sorry, that was the wrong thing to say. Just – work with him? He’s coming next week, and I need you to lead, okay? This is what you do, Jack. Do it.”

     

    (Or, Jack's a criminal defense attorney whose life work involves serving low-income defendants, and Connor's an Ivy League grad who's too good at his job to know what he's doing)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Do I believe that many of my clients are culpable for their crimes? Absolutely. But, everyone no matter how guilty, deserves for someone to present a defense on his behalf. Everyone deserves someone to care about his case and dig into it and present it to the jury in the light most favorable to him. There’s two sides to every story, Connor. I truly believe that, and just because someone’s guilty doesn’t mean they deserve to be treated less than anyone else. Maybe that makes me a bleeding heart or whatever, but no one deserves to be reduced to the worst thing they’ve ever done. No one has a single story. So, for me it’s about finding solutions and proportional sentences for my clients, and giving them the support they need to turn it around, y’know?”

    Summary

    (n.) a hiding place; a place of safety and comfort.

    "You're Nolan Patrick, right?" The guy presses on whether he gets an answer or not (he doesn't), "Bro, it's sweet we get to play together. You're fucking sick; your stick-handling skills are off the charts, my man, this is gonna be so sweet."

    Nolan can fucking feel the vibrations of Travis stifling a laugh, but of course Travis isn't going to throw him a rescue line like the fucker that he is. All Nolan can really do is stare blankly -- his first choice of words are highly inappropriate and he smothers them into an unintelligible mumble.
