  2. Summary

    These are all the stories that are interconnected within my DC Verse. None of them are canon compliant with the comics because fuck that noise, but there are going to be some references to things that happened in some of the animated shows, most notably Teen Titans.

    Nora is a single mom in my verse because Flashpoint Paradox is my favourite DC film to date

    Summary

    “Besides, you and Andromache were bemoaning my flowery declarations of love just the other day! Nico finds them charming.”

    “Oh, I’m not arguing that.” Quynh says, “But when Nicolò says or does something similar, I would think you a young maiden meeting her betrothed for the first time.”

    He opens his mouth to respond but the thing is - Quynh is right. He and Nicolò confessed their love for each other decades ago but he’ll still look at Nico sometimes and be overwhelmed by the aching, beautiful way he loves him. And when Nicolò expresses the same to him, in that honest, straightforward way of his, Yusuf doesn’t think there’s any choice but to melt.

    Or: Joe being an absolute goner for Nicky's expressions of love throughout the years.

    Summary

    “So. Like old times, then?” Nicky rises to his feet, and helps Joe up as well.

    Joe smiles at him, grim and cold. “The full distance, darling.”

    [Joe and Nicky escape the van, blow things up, kiss, and save their family. In that order.]

    Summary

    Andromache tells him: "The Greeks used to have seven different words for love. Well. More, probably. But I remember seven." She shrugs. "There are many ways to love one another, and life is long. We've time enough for them all. It's the only thing that makes it worthwhile."

    Nicky and his immortal family, over the centuries.

    Summary

    Joe's fury is a volcanic thing, one that blazes fiercely and lives much longer than it would appear on the surface. Nicky has known that for almost as long as he's known Joe, and tonight, he's grateful for it. His own anger is deep and cold and implacable, tunneled through him so thoroughly he sometimes cannot move for all of its effects, so he draws on Joe's heat to keep him going, because now is not the time to shut down.

    There is too much to be seen to.

    Summary

    “Joe didn’t lie back in that lab,” Booker tells him gently. “I am selfish. I am a liar. But beyond everything else, Nicky, I’m a coward.”

    “Really,” says Nicky, looking unimpressed.

    [Booker tries to save his family from Quynh. He's rather good at it, if not a little dramatic about the entire process. In the meantime, he learns a little more about himself, his family, and the definitions of bravery, forgiveness and love.]
