    Summary

    Jason Todd is good at extortion. He's what the adults call a snoop - nobody paid attention to the little kid with the big ears. Without even realizing, adults would hand him the keys to getting what he needed. Jason knew how to collect information, because adults found information valuable. And it was. It was free, easy to get, and easy to carry, so long as he kept his head clear and his facts straight.
    Jason had information Batman could use. He knew it. He had thought it over all day, sitting on that moldy couch, eating stale saltines. Batman would definitely be interested in the information Jason had.

    Batman had become scary again, like the old stories Jason used to hear the goons in the area tell. Breaking bones, just barely keeping people alive. Batman didn’t kill, no, but sometimes? Sometimes living was worse, maybe.
    Jason stayed crouched behind that dumpster, silent, because he simply couldn’t decide if Batman was far gone enough to make a kid wish he was dead.

    (Jason Todd knows how to get what he wants, and Batman tries to lure him to safety.)

    Summary

    The kid was going to die at this rate, whether or not Jason had anything to do with it. Apparently dead Robins were just a thing, now, and Bruce didn’t give a shit whether they lived or died.

    There was something almost comforting about that, that Jason’s wasn’t the only life that didn’t matter.

    There was something fucking infuriating about that, that Jason’s wasn’t the only life that didn’t matter.

    Well. If those fucks didn’t care about their baby bird now, Jason would just have to make them care. And he had a few ideas on just how to do that.

    Robin might get a little broken in the process, but what was a little kidnapping and torture between friends?

    ***

    a.k.a. the Titans Tower AU where Jason kidnaps Tim instead of trying to kill him. And then he kidnaps Steph. And Dick. And Cass. And...

    Jason may have a problem.

    Less crack-y than it sounds. This is mainly hurt, angst, and reckoning with canon trauma. Comfort will come! There *will* be a happy ending.

    Summary

    “What aren’t you hiding?”

    “My, uh… My birthday.” He said finally, and the context clicked firmly into place - the cake, Teddy’s anguish the week before, the innocent question this afternoon, the quiet since.

    “That’s what’s had you bothered?”

    “I didn’t want you to think- It wasn’t intentional.” He stopped, closed his eyes, barreled onward. “There just wasn’t time, that first year, and then magic was just… gone. And we went through the clock in May, and then we were here.”

    Summary

    Poe jerks awake in a deserted conference room, in front of a holoscreen, on the floor of the hangar still dressed in his flight suit, in the mess hall, never in his own bed.
