    Summary

    Damian was waiting in the penthouse when Dick got there, all expectant expression and confrontational stance. Dick closed the door behind him and let himself be confronted. "You didn't get expelled," he announced.

    This was, unsurprisingly, not greeted with relief.

    (In our house there are many legacies.)

    Summary

    Was ever woman in this humour woo'd? No, frankly. But for Anne, turning from Lancastrian widow into Yorkist wife is a smart move, and doing so with apparant reluctance a smarter one yet. There was a prior agreement - two, really, one between children at Middleham who thought they were in love; and one between adults in London who understood that love has nothing to do with it.

    Richard knows all there is to know about gaining power, but what to do with it once it's his? For that he needs a wife who understands pragmatism and survival. And had their son lived, he might just have had the sense to realise it.

    Summary

    (yj_anon_meme prompt minifill

    Full prompt: Not all aspects used. (Actually almost NO aspects used. I got like a word into the prompt and went A-HA. Poor OP...)

    Tl;dr prompt: Robin is a faerie. The rest of the team doesn't know until now.

     

    Batman and Robin have a brief discussion on how to keep the status quo going for as long as they can, which means keeping the League from wondering and keeping the Court from looking too close.

    The answer, of course, is silver.
