    Summary

    The midnight bell had rung for Tim not on a date of any significance, but during an ordinary night at the Manor.

    Tim Drake is a sad, sad boy, and Bruce Wayne is trying his best. (But sometimes his best isn't enough.)

    Summary

    In which two broken people find each other and help each other heal.
    Or, it's never properly addressed in canon that Bruce was suicidal after losing Jason. Or that Tim, at 13, knew how to talk people back from the brink of suicide.
    This is a story about them slowly climbing out of that pit. Moments I wish canon gave us.

    Summary

    Jaskier went back inside and eyed the horse speculatively. Roach stared back at him, swishing her tail.

    “Yeah, you’re right. I can’t just steal a man’s horse because he…” Jaskier trailed off, unwilling to say the words aloud.

    Roach stamped and nickered, and Jaskier went back into her stall. He found her brushes and got to work.

    “But, if I were to say, borrow his horse, it would ensure a clean getaway. I would be honouring his wishes, ensuring that we didn’t cross paths again. Either that or he’ll track me down and be forced to apologize. It’s win-win, really.”

    -

    After the Mountain Breakup Jaskier is heartbroken enough that stealing Roach and taking himself to the coast seems like a good idea.

    Summary

    “You’d like us to be intimate then?” Geralt inquired earnestly. Jaskier nearly choked on his spit.

    “We’re married, aren’t we?”

    “Plenty of married couples would rather clean gutters than see each other bare. And you have that tavern girl of yours, from the village-- hush, that’s not an admonishment. I just assumed you’d been… put up for auction, when a groom was requested in the place of a bride. That you had no earnest, physical interest in men. Or if you did, that I was out of your age bracket. Which is acceptable. I have less than no interest in traumatizing you, or anyone, with my attentions.”

    It was beginning to sink in for Jaskier that maybe, just maybe, he had in fact been joined in holy matrimony with a perfectly lovely man.
