Tim crashes every March.
- Part 2 of Struggling Birds
After years of spending night after night in the shadows, the dark was a comfort to him. It was both his security blanket and his confidence... There was nothing comfortable about the day, where everything was exposed to the light sooner or later. Dick had always preferred the night, but suddenly he found that the darkness was beginning to become uncomfortable as well.

“Whoa, Tim, hang on.” Dick grips Tim’s shoulders and feels him vibrating, like all of the energy that drained out of him when he learned Bruce was gone has returned tenfold. The kid is out of breath, and the dried tear tracks on his cheeks don’t match his oddly bright eyes or flushed complexion. “What are you talking about?”
“Bruce,” Tim says, like it’s obvious. “We have to talk to Zatanna or Xanadu or Brand—anyone who knows about this kind of stuff.”
“What stuff? You’re not making any sense.”
“Bruce is alive.”
- Part 4 of I See Dead People
With five habitable cities left it's a known fact that if yours gets destroyed, you'll be left at the mercy of the outside world. Four of the cities took this seriously. The last didn't, and everyone in it was killed. Sure, some got out and managed to survive, but with a lingering alien invasion, four divided city-states that refuse to help anyone except their own citizens, and a missing father, is survival really worth all the trouble?
Dick sighs as he watches his siblings. "You'd think being the sole survivors of our city-state would make us at least Act a little more intelligent." Damian stands next to him, arms crossed. "Wishful thinking does no one good, Richard."
Between Kaldur's betrayal, Artemis's death, and the League's trial, it isn't a surprise that Dick is struggling. But Wally knows that Dick has been hiding something, too. He might not know what that something is, but whatever it is, it's killing Dick. Wally just wants to help before it's too late.

“There’s a girl hanging around the Kent kid all morning,” Jason tells the camera, “and it’s been driving our Timbo up the wall. He’s got the world’s biggest crush on the kid since forever, but he’s too chicken to do anything about it, and now that he’s got competition, he’s freaking out big time.” He giggles, “he’s trying to be cool about it and failing miserably. This is the best day of my life, it’s like a live soap opera right in my face, I have half a mind to run home to make popcorn. I’ve been updating Roy all day, it’s amazing. And the best part? Dickieface has no idea. We’re betting on how long it’ll take for him to figure it out and corner Timmy to talk about his feelings. I’ve put my money in 6:00pm.” He laughs again, “best. Day. Ever.”
alternatively, the one where it's time for the Annual Metropolis Sucks Barbecue and Dick is stressed, Tim is decidedly, most definitely, not jealous, Jason is having the time of his life, and Steph just wanted to have her fireworks but got a bucket of teenage angst instead.
or, the parks and rec AU.

Dick didn't like to show his cracks. He was the funny one. The family-oriented one. The one who kept his shit together when everyone in the family was rapidly losing theirs. He smiled often. Laughed off verbal barbs from his brothers and teammates. He showed that he was okay so no one could ask if he was okay, because if they asked if he was okay, he'd lose it.

Tim wishes that he'd realized Dick was so stressed out sooner. Maybe he could have helped more.
