    Summary

    Sam Manson isn't your average Gotham University junior.
    She's seen things that would make even the most hardened Crime Alley criminal whimper.
    Including the death of her best friend/one-time crush.

    Damian Wayne isn't your average assassin-turned-vigilante...Scratch that.
    Damian Wayne isn't average period.

    Mix in a Gotham gala, far too many animals, shared vegetarianism, another partially dead semi-superhero (!), and what do you get?
    Chaos.

    And how does one combat chaos?
    Well?
    Gothic Order.

    Inspired by a post I scrolled past one night by @minnesota-fats on Tumblr. (Since I can't seem to find the link - ugh WHY can't I find it?? - I'll try to screenshot it somewhere/eventually!)

    Summary

    Tim Drake learns to live.

    Through unloving parents, through Robin, and through retirement, Tim learns what this complicated thing called life is all about. He didn’t ask to be born but he’ll survive his parents . Jason was never supposed to die and leave Gotham with a violent Batman, but Tim will solve that as well.

    He’ll soldier through it like he soldiers through everything else: with a metric fuck tonne of caffeine served with a side of depression and rage against the world.

    He just wishes he didn’t have to attend so many funerals.

    Summary

    Bernard and Tim buy groceries together now, and call each other on the way home from work, and get their mail sent to the same address. Their medicine cabinet holds little orange bottles with both their names and their skateboards live in the same closet, which also happens to hide the entrance to Red Robin's Nest. The number of things he can call 'theirs' has increased exponentially since they moved in together and Bernard has never been happier, but life tends to be a little less predictable than tripping over Tim's shoes in the hallway.

    OR

    Bernard and Tim hold on to each other through the highs and the lows, with a Sicktember twist!

    Summary

    ““Bernard,” Tim said calmly, “do me a favor and go with Steph, will you?”

    Hands gripped Bernard’s arm, pulling him slowly backwards and out of the alley, but his eyes stayed trained on Tim.

    On the gun pointed at Tim's head."

    Summary

    “Is that… is that smoke?” She moved closer to the window, looking at the dark cloud forming behind New York City. 

    Adrien also pressed himself against the window, eyes locked on the horizon. “I… think so.”

    The plane's speakers dinged on, accompanied by a sea of groaning from the waking passengers. “Attention passengers, there has been an incident at JFK airport that is preventing us from landing. I’ve spoken to ground control, and we’re being diverted to the Archie Goodwin International Airport in Gotham City, New Jersey. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience.” The captain announced. 

    “Gotham City?” Adrien asked, furrowing his brows. “Isn’t that the one with the Batman?”

    Summary

    Everything has turned upside and over; mostly metaphorically, but Tim could also say it literally as well. Nothing makes any sense here, nor does it seem possible; But he is here, and it is very much real. This world gets Tim at every turn and he only hopes he'll find a way back home... soon...

    Or

    Tim gets transferred to an alternate universe where not a single thing seems to make any sense. This is literal, there are barely any correct parallels or coordination, and it gets worse the more Tim explores it.

    Summary

    "Grumbling, Tim moved to leap onto the table beside him, but an arm shot out and he had to reel back.

    He was cornered, and Bernard was still fighting. Alone.

    “Bernard!” Tim shouted.

    “Over here.” Bernard called, voice strained with effort."

    Summary

    “You want me to help you do what?!”

    Bernard looked at Tim like he was completely insane, which was slightly valid but also extremely hypocritical. 

    “I want you to help me fabricate emails between myself and Jason Todd to convince Bruce Wayne that I was actually friends with his dead son so I can gain access to their family.” Tim felt like this wasn’t exactly a big deal.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” Tim had said, so, so desperately. “I’m so sorry. But I know you, and I know if I get you loose right now, there’s no way you’ll just leave like I need you to. You’re too fucking brave for your own good, and I need you not to be. Just for tonight.”

    “Tim—”

    “I promise you, someone’ll be here soon to get you out. But I need to go, and I can’t have you following me.”

    Summary

    Beware her. They say she's a girl with a shattered heart, who let's her fury and grief out on the scum of Gotham with only a baseball bat and a handful of knives. She fills the room with smoke and then takes you out before you have a chance to notice she's right behind you. Beware, criminals of Gotham, beware of Luz Noceda, The Mist.

    Summary

    "I'll bring you back if you die."

    Tim flicked ash from his cigarette, then took a moment to savour a long drag. After breathing out and tilting his head back, he watched the smoke rise from his mouth before closing his eyes, "no, you wouldn't."

    No. I wouldn't.

    Bernard wants to tell Tim that he thinks the bats should care less about the mission and more about each other.
    -
    Bernard gets nightmares. So does Tim. On the bad nights, they commiserate.
