    Summary

    Several years ago, Slade's son Grant died competing in the Hunger Games, and the boy who killed him, Dick Grayson, became the Capitol's new favourite plaything. Now, seeking the means to undermine the totalitarian government that called on his son to die in the first place, Slade needs access to the secrets its high-ranking citizens seek to hide. Secrets that Dick, with their tentative connection and the justification Slade's position as a high ranking peacekeeper gives him to call on the boy, is in the perfect place to supply.

    All Slade has to do is give him the right motivation.

    Everything about his pose seems open and welcoming, but when Slade had first entered the room he’d seen the way the boy’s eyes had widened, the mask dropped for a split second to convey fear before he’d expertly covered it back up again. Not many would have noticed, but Slade has practice in such things, and he’d been looking for it besides.

    Summary

    Grant Wilson, Crown Prince of the kingdom of Defiance, was captured by the Hive's renegade mages and twisted into something that was no longer human. Richard Grayson, prince of Gotham, killed him to protect his people.

    Self-defense or not, a prince killing a prince is grounds for war. In order to ensure that peace is secured, Prince Richard goes to King Slade, unarmed and alone.

    It doesn't end well.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    When Grayson turns back to him, his eyes are...empty. Not the blankness of resignation, but hollowness. Like there’s no one home.

    Slade doesn’t even make a pretense at prep this time. This time, those glimmering tears end up carving down the prince’s cheeks, quiet cries escaping his control. This time, Grayson is sobbing and bleeding by the time Slade pulls out.

    Still no protest. No fight. Nothing.

    He doesn’t feel satisfied. He just feels cold.

    When an FBI recruiter approaches them with an offer of a clean slate and a steady paycheck, Barney takes it.

    Clint goes in another direction.

    Barney gets job security, health insurance, and a pension.

    “And,” he says, “A moral compass.”

    Clint gets freedom.

    “Morality is overrated, big bro.”

    Summary

    Usually Dick just gets his ass kicked when he's careless, so being strung up on a wall and injected with a heat inducer is new.

    It gets worse when Deathstroke shows up.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    In the car, Slade peels off his scent blocker patch and Dick can’t quite fight the shiver as the scent of a strong alpha unfurls through the car. And then Slade reaches for him, and Dick holds himself deathly still as that huge hand comes towards his neck—but all Slade does is peel off Dick’s scent blocker patch, and Dick’s own sweet, caramel scent fills the car.

    Dick stares out the window, unseeing, as he tries to master his instincts. The alpha scent, from an alpha his hindbrain knows is strong and capable, makes him want to purr, makes him want to lean over and bury his face in Slade’s neck and inhale that soothing scent.

    But it’s fucking Slade, and he thinks Dick killed his son, and he’s going to—

    Bookmarker's Notes

    It's the same thing every day. The day begins with nothing. Just sitting here, with his hands chained to the wall, watching the table in front of him and waiting for Dick—who's strapped to the aforementioned table—to slowly wake up. Dick's been waking up later and later every day, but that's not really his fault.

    It's the drug's fault.
