    Summary

    "What do you want him to do?" Drake snapped. "Admit that he's a little bit worried about you because you fucking died?"

    Damian was on his feet before he knew what happened. He couldn't breathe for the hate burning in his chest. How dare Drake talk about it. How dare he preach as though he agreed. "I'm surprised you pretend to give a fuck, Drake," he hissed, derision and bitterness dripping from the words. "I...I would have thought you were happy I was gone!"

     




    He didn't think about the words until after they left his mouth, after the Cave was deadly silent and the sentence echoed through the room, hung in the air like smoke. Drake's chest was heaving, but he didn't say a word, and his eyes were so dark that Damian actually took a step back in irrational fear. Abruptly, Drake shoved his chair back with a screech, and left without a word, his footsteps resounding through the cave. Damian watched him go, numb.

    Alternatively, Damian has misjudged Drake, and guilt isn't something he's used to dealing with.

    Summary

    "Are you okay?"

    Barnes weighed exhaustion against disgust as he considered resting his forehead on the edge of the toilet bowl. Disgust won, and he sat back on his heels instead. He turned his head far enough to look at the boy standing in the bathroom doorway.

    "Peachy," he rasped. He wasn’t used to having company during his post-mission freakouts. If he'd been alone he would have stripped by the front door so he could just roll his body into the bathtub to hose off, but he hadn't wanted to undress in front of the teenagers. He was still pretty fuzzy on the rules of being a person, but don't traumatize children with your horror show of a body seemed like common fucking courtesy. “This happens every time.”

    He realized his mistake as the silence stretched.

    “Every time you...blow up a building?” The kid sounded like he was trying very hard to be open-minded. “Is that, like, your hobby?”

    There's some lunatic in a red helmet running through Jason's territory. He wants to think it's a copy cat.

    He's wrong.

    Summary

    Tim might have a tendency to overwork, but he did not tend to forget people he personally hired for WE's research team. 'Course, the rest of the family didn't tend to forget Jason Todd existed either. Conclusion: You could never be too careful handling alien artifacts.
