    Summary

    It had been this way for weeks.

    What used to be his favourite part of the day, following his heroes through the streets of Gotham, had become a lesson in waking nightmares. And walking ones, as Batman was doing his damnedest to be.

    Summary

    trauma has a way of catching up to you, of leaving all your fault lines bare and tearing you open from the inside out

    recovery is slow and hard and sometimes you take more steps backward than forwards.

    sometimes you help others as much as you are helped, sometimes you're buried ankle deep in regret and fear.

    eventually, you reach the end.

    or; Dick Grayson and trauma, recovery, and his siblings. Something's wrong with all of them but they work through it, eventually.

    Summary

    Tim isn’t sure how long he’s standing in front of the grave before he finally finds the words to say.
    “Hey Jason,” he starts, voice barely above a whisper, “I don’t know if you remember me, I’m Tim. We met at a couple of those charity functions you hate so much.”

     

    Thirteen year old Tim swears he only meant to go to Jason's grave to talk to him that first time. He finds himself coming back time after time. For a long time, it feels like the reasons he does only get sadder, until they don't.

    Summary

    Clark Kent has now dealt with interdimensional travel twice, and both times have been somewhat traumatic for all involved. So when he is the one to get transported somewhere else, of course he's not happy about it. Oh, and to make matters worse, the place he's transported to just happens to be the horrible, nightmare of a world which he and the league have started calling the Injustice dimension.

    Or: What if the Superman from this universe got transported to the Injustice universe for a bit? How would he react to meeting Kara? How would he react to meeting Clark Kal?
     
    "“Kal,” the Supergirl, said, somewhat threateningly, “What are you. Doing. Out?”

    Clark set his jaw. So it was going to be like that, then. “Look, I honestly don’t know who you are, because I’m not from here. I’m from another dimension, and I’ve been trying to find Bruce all afternoon. Batman told you about being transported to a different world, right? Well that’s happened to me. I just need to talk to him,” he replied placatingly."

    Summary

    "If Luthor is right about anything, it is that no being is both all-powerful and all-good."

    Bruce doesn't believe in God, but some people have started idolizing Superman as one, and humanity has a bad track-record with whom they choose to deify. If Superman is all-powerful, then he cannot be all-good. Besides, it is inherently impossible for any being to be all-good. Therefore, Bruce knows, even if the alien is good, he can still be corrupted. So Batman decides to do something about it.

    But what happens when the alien threat he thought he was facing is not so threatening after all? What happens when the righteous path is no longer so clear?
     
    What if nothing is all-powerful, or all-good— but Superman is trying anyway?

    Summary

    But is it the father or the son who will struggle most to work through the dark impulses that Damian represents? And what will that struggle mean for the boy's chances of finding his place as a true Son of the Bat?

    Summary

    The jitters didn’t catch up with him until deep into the afternoon, and even once they arrived, Bruce was slow to notice. The case from the night before had tangled its fingers in his focus, drawing him in like the well-crafted puzzle that it was. It felt solvable now that he had slept and swept away the last lingering repercussions of the flu that had plagued him. Still, as deep as he was in his case files, Bruce still found his head lifting when feet passed the entrance to the sunroom. When the phone would ring, his attention would snag, lifted from the deep well where it had sunk to peer about in hopes of… something. He wasn’t sure what. But no matter how fully he lost himself to his work, Bruce found his attention swinging like a lodestone to the front door.

    Summary

    Humans haven't the ability to heal as Wonder Woman or brush off bullets as Superman. Damian had ignored this part of himself for as long as he could. He'd acted as invincible as his partner.

    As the saying goes: an arm and a leg.

    Summary

    Really, at this point, it doesn’t surprise Jason that Bruce trusts Jason about as much as he trusts the other loonies that he throws in Arkham. It shouldn’t hurt, it shouldn’t, but it does, and to Jason that’s the worst part. That he knows he’s done more than enough to gain Bruce’s distrust, that he’s continually shown Bruce that trusting him doesn’t end well for anyone involved, including Jason, and yet...it still sends a shooting pain into his heart. The same shooting pain he felt when he was 15, angry at Bruce for not believing him about Garzonas, for not trusting him, and for telling him what to do, causing him to run away, and get beaten nearly to death by the Joker and subsequently blown up. Jason should be used to it, but he isn’t.
