    Summary

    And then he whispers a single name into her hair. It is warm, like the memory of home and dark nights before a fire, and as sweet as treacle, sugar and butterscotch and promises she cannot remember. And she thinks, as she presses him into a fervent and hungry kiss, chasing the letters and the cadence and the brogue with her tongue, it should not sound so familiar. 

    Dany.

    He has called her Dany.

    But…

    That isn’t her name.

    A one-night stand ends up being a whole goddamned mess and two people whose names are certainly (probably) not Daenerys Targaryen or Jon Snow find themselves untangling strange dreams of war and betrayal and lives lost, lived, and forgotten.

    Summary

    ...Or live long enough to see yourself become the villain." Arthur never thought he'd be applying a quote from Alfred's movies to his life. He didn't like it.

    After a series of attacks, the Old World Powers find themselves in a position where they're on the run together, fighting for the right to live in the new era despite the sins of the past. However they won't go down easy; empires may crumble and names may change, but the people at the heart of them remain the same.

    Summary

    They’ve never really believed in death. They know it exists, they see it all the time. It’s there, but it just doesn’t last for them. Death has never been permanent, only a mere pause in their lives. But here they stand, watching his coffin be lowered into the ground.

    Infallible Dick Grayson was a fraud.

    Summary

    Dick’s goal for Thanksgiving (code named Operation F.I.S.H.): A family outing to the aquarium.

    It feels achievable - everyone has been getting along better lately, Jason is spiraling closer, Cass is coming home. But there is a lot of unspoken hurt in every direction, and Dick’s own position in the family is shakier than ever since Bruce returned.

    If Dick wants to realize his dream of family bonding, there will have to be many painful conversations between all parties. Dick’s own secrets will need to surface, the ones he has long kept submerged, the ones he will fight to sink forever.

    (Or: Where Bruce is just a bit darker, even less emotionally available, and treats everyone a little worse, and how they all fix their family anyway.)
