DC Comics: Ego/Id - Tim, PG18

Fandom: DC Comics
Title: Spontaneous
Characters: Tim, Barbara
Rating: PG18
Prompt: #4, Ego/Id
Word Count: About 350
Spoilers: None
Warnings: PG18 for *handwaves vaguely* let's say sex stuff.
Disclaimer: Don't own.
A/N: This is the Tim alien sex pollen story I've *always* wanted to write. I think that should count as a warning *g*.


"...and I can only assume that was how I was exposed to the Tamarian psychoactive substance."

"You mean the alien sex pollen." One of the things about Oracle's mastery of Internet lore, true or not, is that she uses it with the same precision that she uses all other kinds of information, or, for that matter, all weapons. As if there were any difference.

Tim's focus wavers slightly. He hopes he's not... He hopes Oracle will misread it as either embarrassment or a deepening of his already worsening condition.

"Yes," he says. It feels like begging.

"So I have to assume that your libidinal impulses are currently outside conscious control." Oracle's tone is merely probing.

She has to know that it isn't helping. The fact that her defense systems would be quite up to the task of containing him, should she chose to, as well as the fact that she probably wouldn't need them... they aren't helping, either.

At this point, it's not a matter of maintaining cover or even self-control. The question is merely if he can negotiate this in a way that will minimize the repercussions.

It's not that he cares, right now, about the aftermath. He just knows that he usually would, and...

This negotiation isn't, actually, something he has to fight the alien substance about. He suspects that's something he will have to analyze in some putative future when he isn't technically insane with lust.

"Yes," he says, although he has all but forgotten the question.

"And you are here, of all the places you could be?"

"Yes."

"And you want this, Tim, of all the things you could want?"

"Yes." Not repeating it is a triumph. Not shuddering when she pronounced his name would have been one, too.

Babs' smile is the most dangerous thing he has seen in a week. "I'm almost offended, Boy Wonder."

His own smile is... he shouldn't smile like this. Not to her, not to... "But you understand."

"Oh, yes," she says, and save for the infinite minutiae of control, her smile matches Tim's. "I guess I do."

She unlocks the video feed codenamed Grayson-cam.

Tim hopes he can retain at least a modicum of control until she leaves the room. Assuming she will.

It's a fairly probable hypothesis, after all, that Oracle likes to watch.

Another fact that doesn't help. At all.


ETA: I pity the fandoms without alien sex pollen. Prompt #5: Multiple Personality. Wee.

*expires messily of joy*

This is just evil. And gorgeous. And I'm deceased, so why am I still typing?

:D This is just evil. And gorgeous. Thanks! That was sort of the effect I was going for...

Oh, *Babs*. This is just lovely, and Babs, of course is using it to get more information, of course and poor Tim. Grayson Cam!

*snorfle* Of course she stays to watch. And of course Tim gets so hot and bothered he jumps her. And of course she's suffering from a lack of Robin lately, and they have wild kinky sex.

You sure you are not a telepath? Because that's totally how I thought it's going to go after the fade to black.

*rummages through your mind* You have some very strange thoughts about Tim, Kon, and...chocolate sauce.

Or maybe that's just me. :P

True; I think mine also has whipped cream, but yours has caramel sauce.

Is this CSA!Oracle? Because wow.

Heh. "Regular" DCU!Babs, theoretically, although a bit more playful than how she's usually in the comics.

Not that CSA!Oracle isn't a terrifying concept to explore.

Wait, you mean Tim doesn't have his *own* Grayson footage? Silly Tim, not thinking ahead.

Trust me, after this he'll *make sure* he has an stash available. *g*

Oh WOW. Tim on sex pollen = NEED FOR GRAYSON CAM. BUT OF COURSE.

You are a genius.

Tim on sex pollen = NEED FOR GRAYSON CAM.

Amen.

Although I would wager that it'd be an interesting second choice (after banging silly character XYZ) for a lot of people in the DCU (*cough*Babs*cough*Bruce*cough*)

There simply are not enough stories for which I may use my default icon and have it be *perfectly topical.*

I love Tim's shakiness and attempts at self-control.

I'm sure Babs is looking forward to phase 2, here.

*nods sadly* There should be more, that's for sure.

Um. Guh. *Creepy* guh.

That's so BABS. And so *very* Tim.

Seconding amarin_rose re: what happens next, of course.

And now I'm going to reread Bite Your Lip.

Oh, poor Tim! My only quibble is, doesn't Tim have an entire file of Dick footage that he keeps stored in three secure locations under more security than the Pentagon? ::grin::

Heh. I love Evil!Babs.

True... but only Babs (and Bruce, but shhhh) have the really good dope, realtime footage :P

Glad you liked it!

OH GOD HEART.

And see, the best thing? Is that the only thing Dick would be really upset about is that they didn't at least *try* to call him.

:D It's fair to say that at least half the kinky factor this scene had for me was due *entirely* to Intimates.

And see, the best thing? Is that the only thing Dick would be really upset about is that they didn't at least *try* to call him.

So he'd put on a *real* show, you mean? *g* (I keep trying not to think "performing artist" and giggle a lot).

....I have to say, i am really impressed. Normal people would have b-lined towards the object of their attraction, but your Tim has no such illusions even when stoned out of his mind with lust... instead he is still assessing the situation, still ruthless with himself as with everything else he does..

i wonder how young he had to start (maybe from the very beginning?) in not allowing himself any illusions what-so-ever in regards to himself in order to achieve this level of self striping, which doesn't even waver when he is not himself. This firm belief in the lack of self-worth with to him is perfectly normal... I would think the early years would have been quite painful, except i am not convinced you can miss something you were never allowed to have in the first place. Maybe only in the same way that someone who is tone deaf, can miss singing beautifully. hm.

*nods a lot* Tim's early years (before or including his stalking of Batman and Robin, I'm not sure), just like Bruce's first years after his parents died, are both light on canon and terrifying on their low-key possibilities. As you said, Tim's way to deal with (use) himself must have its roots there; it's quite disquieting to consider ways in which this could have come to pass.

yes.. i am a little..startled to realize just how *much* time i have dedicated to flipping those possibilities round and round in my head. (i am a complete Tim nut. can you tell?)

As you said, Tim's way to deal with (use) himself must have its roots there; it's quite disquieting to consider ways in which this could have come to pass.

I would say it was gradual but started very very early on. Children who's parents are undependable learn to watch very early on and to react accordingly.(there is a reason i like Tim as much as i do, yes)

I haven't had a chance to read any of your other fics (RL has been a demanding bitch with PMS the size of china)but i am very much looking forward to it.
