DC Comics: Transference - Tim, G

Fandom: DC Comics
Title: Geodesics
Characters: Tim
Rating: G
Prompt: #1, Transference
Word Count: 128
Spoilers: None
Warnings: None
Disclaimer: Don't own.
A/N: The meaning of "shortest path" isn't always clear. Neither are author notes. In case it's not clear from the (too short) text, this happens early during Dick's career as Robin.


There is a postcard from Vienna in the mail. His parents wish him a happy Christmas, and hope to come back to Gotham by early February.

It's convenient. Batman's patrols end earlier during the cruder winter weeks (there's much he still doesn't know about them, but Robin's legless uniform is one of the biggest mysteries), and the risk of being caught by his parents would be greater.

Besides, Tim's used to his parents going away. It doesn't bother him at all.

He pictures Batman and Robin's probable routes against his mind's map of Gotham, and chooses his vantage point for the night.

He can't follow them, but he can catch them on film.

He can make sure they are alright.

He can make sure they will come back.



ETA: Prompt #2 is Daddy issues... *mind breaks* This challenge is way too easy/enabling/hot/*wrong* for this fandom, you know?

It is a SCARILY appropriate challenge!

Also, a very nice drabble. Oh Tim. *pets him, on film*

Oh man. Did… I had never even looked at it that way, but of course… Um. I'm just sort of bibbling over your smart.

When Batman and Robin are more of a constant than your parents, your life is definitely messed up.

I'd plead that I *like* Tim, but then, so does Bruce - and look how much that helps Tim. :D.

Oh. My. Unspecified Deity. Fabulous!

Heh. I made a quick list of the obvious possibilities for me to do for Daddy Issues and then I ran out of paper.

Seriously, I decided to do something more unusual, instead of one of the obvious ones: Bruce/Dick, Bruce/Tim, Bruce in general, Cass/Wossisname Cain...

Hahaaha. Yes.

*nods* Good idea. Not that there still isn't much fic to write about them, but there are *other* traumatized people in Gotham, too... *g*

BTW, I saw your comment right after posting #2 at psych_30... I'd say that great minds do think alike *g*

If "it" means "hiding under my bed when creepy attack," yep, I'm doing it *g*.

Glad you liked this!

Poor poor Timmy... *pets him* You're going to make some of these happy/non-creepy, right? I mean, the poor boy deserves it.

Heh. Yeah, I know the feeling. The number of fics I've written about Tim trying to deal with the loss of his father...

I think it'd be less fic than case study (and not a rare one, at that).
