    Bruce Wayne and Wally West have a long history together, going back to when Wally was a kid with a crush and Bruce was too busy being Batman to notice.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Bookmarking because it's one of the few Dresden fics with a nice, easy Harry and Thomas brotherly relationship. Thomas can walk right through Harry's wards, and the Warden is puzzled as to what their relationship is. He might make a few assumptions. *g*

    The one where Jason hits his head on things a lot, and so his siblings come up with a way to make him duck. With ducks. Rubber ducks. LOL.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    My comment: " Fantastic story. I have to say it was a lovely thing to immerse myself in, and I'm not typically a reader of slash stories with brothers - but you gave it a context and with the characters and the circumstances, I could believe it. They're both so screwed up in so many ways, and they know it (Jason more so than Dick), but somehow they keep trying, and that's the part that really worked for me because life is like that. It's not neat, it's not careful, it's not ever simple, and sometimes it's god awful and messy and complicated, and these characters know that better than anyone. Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you cry, sometimes you scream. It felt honest to me, and the surrounding plot and all of the action was a good balance to the relationship development. Thoroughly enjoyable for so many reasons, and I thought Batman's point of view was well done - that restrained, emotional confusion. The overlay of past and present and the realization of how different and how alike they are. Jason and Dick were both really well-developed here. (Too bad most of the people who write the comics don't take this kind of care in fleshing out stories.)"

    Or the one where Jason comes back (after Lost Days), ends up staying with Dick, ends up sleeping with Dick, the two of them working out their traumas on one another. The one where Blockbuster gets killed, and Haly's circus goes poof, and Oracle knows exactly what's going on between them. Also, Jason loses a spleen. *g* (Tim loses one in Red Robin comics - it's a thing! *g*) The character insights are really well-done, especially Jason's particular brand of fucked-up ... he gets himself deliberately stabbed. Yeah. Also, it really captures the fucked up mess of their relationship because they're "brothers" on some level, and yet they're really not. (As Jason says, "we do a lot of fucking for brothers.") And the sex is contextual, not drawn out or overly explicit, and works with the plot.

    Really, can't say enough good things about this novel-length read.

    Summary

    “We should probably teach the kid not to antagonize the Gotham mob without us,” Jason says conversationally, voice slightly raised so Dick can make out the words over the sounds of knuckles against bone.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Jason to the rescue. Things I like about this in particular - that Dick simply yells Jason's name into radio silence, knowing he's hacked the feed and is listening. That Jason's on the way to help even before he knows what it's about. That Jason doesn't get upset there's a new Robin, but rather that he isn't trained well-enough for street-fighting. That Jason ends up back in the family, cleaning his guns on the kitchen table. *g*

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Superman/Batman - getting to know each other. Clark has a feeling about Bruce Wayne, but doesn't actually know, except Bruce assumes he knows and tells him anyway. But Bruce doesn't know who Clark is until much later. LOL. Interesting and intense and so very much Bruce with the getting hurt and having rules and caring more than he can say, and also going after what he wants. Nice.
