You were right. Robin #148 is about *Robin*

And thus ends the long night of massive OOC. For now. *cue evil laughs from somewhere in NY*

Anyway, this of course means sillyfic.

Fic: The hand, considered as the cutting edge of the mind
Fandom: DC
Rating: PG13
Warnings: *Sillyfic* Spoilers for OYL storylines. Will get massively retconned by DC as soon as 52 catches up.


"So, when do we escape?"

"We don't."

"Sure. No place to build mutual trust like a romanian jail. The only downside is that I won't reach the altar with my virginity intact, but that's a small price to pay, right?"

"Don't be facetious," Bruce scolded him. Dick smiled to the bunk bed above him. Bruce only corrected him like that when he was feeling relaxed. "You've been in much worse places, and I'd very much doubt your virginity has been an issue for a long time."

Dick's smile could have made the Joker proud. Long phrases, (feeble) jokes about sex... Bruce was almost exuberant.

This was the best road trip ever.

"So, if we don't escape and you don't plan for us to bond in jail, and of course I did thought that could be a possibility you'd consider, then what?"

"Tim will take us out."

"Alright. How?"

"I don't know."

"... Bruce, you did see the gaps in the security rotation."

"Yes."

"And the so-called 'security systems' they have over here."

"Yes."

"And the would-be badass guards with bad knees and slow reflexes."

"Yes, Dick, I saw them too. It's not about escape. It's about trust."

"Trust? Tim knows how we feel about him. He's R, isn't he?"

"Tim knows. He has to believe. We all have to. That's what the point of this trip is, mutual trust... as I distinctly remember telling both of you before we left Gotham."

Dick's retort was interrupted by the guard rudely throwing another prisoner into the cell. The three of them looked at each other until the guard was too far to hear them.

"Great rescue, bro."

Tim scowled at him. "I assumed you'd already be out. I just let them catch me to try and replicate your escape route."

"Bruce, did that sound as crazy to you as it did to me?"

Bruce leaned over the border of his bed. "That's how I learned to break out of prisons."

Dick covered his eyes with his hand. "Lunatics. I have a family of lunatics."

Bruce leaned back into his bed. "This is going to take longer than I thought."

Saying nothing, Tim started picking the cell's lock. They had two hours before shift change.

He had no idea how they were going to pass the extra hundred and fifteen minutes.

Wow.

Again, tell me why are you not writing comics professionally?

I might have to steal draw inspiration from this. :D

Would love that! (I wonder what DC will show us in 52...)

Bwaahaa! Man, you should write Bruce and Dick all the time, that was beautiful! Poor Tim. Oh Bruce. Your bonding exercises are insane.

Oh Bruce. Your bonding exercises are insane.

Aren't they? "Deliberately spending a month on a Romanian prison" wouldn't even rate as OOC for the man... *g*

No Tim! Your Bat-logic is absolutely perfect.

Geeks. That was funny.

of course I did thought that could be a possibility

Er, spelling? Word choice?
__marcelo

Yeah, it's not well written; I tried a couple of variants, but I was writing the scene on a rush, so I leaved it like that.

How should I have written it?

Er, I was just pointing at the tense mis-match. I had thought, or I did think. It made me think you meant to say "though" for a moment.

The best road trip ever. Oh, boys. At least they got to be cellmates.

Also, this doesn't count as sillyfic. This is beautifully characterized and absolutely possible. You rock.

Oh, boys. At least they got to be cellmates.

Good idea! Somehow, I think the variant when some poor guy has to be their cellmate would be funnier *g*.

Buggery passes the time, or so I've been told. But I'd rather see them snark the beautiful snark. Love! Love! Love!

This'll make me grin for a long, long time.

OK, as you've no doubt gathered I've been going through and bit by bit reading everything, but this one? That just characterizes the Bat family perfectly.

Thanks! I love them to pieces, crazy, wonderful bunch that they are.
