    Summary

    We all know Jason dug out of his grave. We all know he was found wandering the streets, looking as though he'd been blown halfway to hell. We know he was taken directly to a hospital, where we know he asked for "Bruce" before he was placed into a coma. We know the detectives called in to investigate don't make the connection to Bruce Wayne or to the son he lost. And we also know what happens next.

    But what if, by mere chance, someone did make the connection? What if someone did, in fact, recognize Jason Todd?

    A (mainly) Outsider POV story about one small act of kindness and the butterfly effect that follows. AU of Batman Annual #25.

    Summary

    It starts off innocently enough. Whenever he calls in to speak with SHIELD Technical Analyst Lewis she banters and flirts with him. It's casual and Steve likes it more than he should. He soon finds himself calling her "doll" and "sweetheart" as she sends the team whatever details they need. He finds his lips twitching into a smile as he dials her number.

    Summary

    Hockey was never a thing for Alicia Zimmermann. She was a West-Coast girl from the United States – if there were any sport she would be interested in, it sure would not be hockey.

    Sometimes, fate works in funny ways, and after all its twists and turns, people end up in places they never would have predicted.

    Summary

    Eventually, they find a note tacked to the gargoyle who guards the passage to the Headmaster's office. It is in Granger's handwriting and signed by her at the bottom, and tells them that, the danger being over and the initial aftermath winding down, she feels that the three of them need some time alone to recuperate and will reappear exactly three days from that day, at four o'clock.
