cass, can you not

Not a fic per se, just...

Their "dates" are just for cover. Barbara Gordon and Damien Wayne. Heirs both to their own legacies, they carry Gotham in their blood. Their relationship looks natural, it helps them get their jobs done, and if she has ordered her people to shoot at him as often as not... Their fathers would have understood, and so do they.

It looks insane, but I can't get my head out of a Barbara/Damien place (in the timeframe of Batman #666, of course). There are things about grown-up Damien -a somewhat gentle cynicism, his approach to crimefighting, the fact that he named his cat Alfred- that makes me think he and Barbara could get along.
