    Summary

    John and Mary Grayson die; Dick becomes Robin. This is everything that happens in between, a/k/a, how Gotham City ripped one family and identity from Dick and gave him another.

    An origin story in the Rebirth spirit, weaving together threads from Tec #40, Dark Victory, Robin: Year One, New 52, and more.
     

    Dick just wanted to go back to the circus, to go back to his normal life, waving to crowds and flying through the air. But instead he was in a giant cave under a giant mansion in (outside of?) Gotham, swiftly becoming part of a billionaire's cobbled-together family and trying to solve a murder. And the worst part? He sort of liked it.

    Summary

    Dear Readers,

    When a scullery maid in the Tarleton household finds a charm bag under her mattress, it's certainly enough mystery to liven up our days -- especially since Cecy is expecting, and can't work magic until the child is born! Luckily, we adore a mystery. And our ladies' maids, Reardon and Walker, are no slouches themselves at helping us sort out pickles.

    Love,
    Kate and Cecy

    Summary

    The lesson here, Susie thinks, is that tricking Death is tricky business. How do you outwit the personification of oblivion? Chess, obviously, won’t be the answer.

     

     

    Or: Susie plays Calvinball with Death.

    Summary

    Catch Nick in a good mood, and he'll say you need three things to be a gumshoe: a pinch of luck, a pound of gumption, and a pair of cocktails for when things get dull. I figure I do all right with all three.
