Ficlet: Bedroom Talk (DCU, PG13)

Written for jadecaptain.

This is Tim being deliberately non-Timmish for strategic reasons. I'm not sure about how well this works, but new years are there for us to try new things, right? Sequel to To Fall Willingly Into Your Embrace - I'm pretty surprised I wrote the Tim from that fic behaving like he does in this one, but, well, it seemed to fit.



She was waiting for him on his bed, although she was dressed this time.

"Did you enjoy the show."

Tim didn't flinch. "She's not to be trusted, Rose."

She snickered, lighting a cigarette. "And I am?"

"You are a Titan." He took off his mask, a deliberately unexpected move. "Of course I trust you."

Rose raised an eyebrow. "Yet you had my room bugged."

He replicated in his face an smile he had once seen in Jason's face. "I have everybody's room bugged."

She laughed. "I didn't believe her when she told me you'd do something unexpected. Who knew you could be funny?"

"When you talked afterward, she gave you a message for me, a question. I have an answer."

"Give it to her yourself, boss. I'm not your errand boy."

"I'm telling it to her. She's listening to the bug she planted in your clothes."

"I... crap. Really?"

"Don't take it personally. I'd have done the same in her place."

Rose scowled. "You Bats are all insane. Say your stupid answer so I can go to my room and burn my clothes."

"My answer is this: Cassandra, what you want to build exists already, and you are welcome to it. It's called the Titans."

Rose shrugged and started taking off her clothes. "Whatever. I can't believe she managed to bug me."

"I bugged you too," said Robin, putting back on his mask and leaving the room.

Rose swore at the closing door and started triple-checking her clothes.

.finis.

He replicated in his face an smile he had once seen in Jason's face. *G* THAT was my favorite line in the fic. And THAT seems exactly like something Tim would do.

Thanks a lot! I had my doubts about it, I'm glad it worked for you.

I liked this alot because Tim is REALLY good at throwing people off. especially when he wants to or if he gains something from it.

Also, I totally love this line: "My answer is this: Cassandra, what you want to build exists already, and you are welcome to it. It's called the Titans." because, I guess, Tim will always do the right thing even if he goes about it the wrong way.

And the bugging! *glee* I love all the bats!

Ahh, I loved it. *pets story*

And thank you! You win some more (especially now that our miscommunication is all cleared up >.>;;;)

Tim can be non-Timmish on demand, every so often. I think he has to crush a gem worth 250 GP or more each time, though.

*grins at you*

:D This being Tim, that was a very appropriate comment.

HA! Ok, this is just awesome. The bugging! *giggles*

Rose, honey, Bats are all a bunch of freaky scary freaks and the sooner you learn that, the better. *pets her*

And, honestly, I don't really think there is such a thing as non-Timmish behavior in that he'll act in any manner he has to, to accomplish a given task. Oh, Tim, you lunatic! ♥

*nods* He doesn't do that very often -his Robin persona is versatile enough to serve most needs- but when he does it, it's awe-inspiring.

E.g., Mr. Sarcastic. *g*

My reaction is a combination of YIKES and YAY. Because Tim and Cass and Rose were all note-perfect, and thus terrifying.

Re: ALSO
Well, it's not as if the Slade family doesn't know their secret IDs... :). And there is always the misdirection value.

You see, people think that Robin is the sneaky one, so sometimes he gives them Tim.

*g* Thanks!

I'm tickled happy that you read Cass in character here; she doesn't appear or speak, but I spent a lot of time working on her part in this fic.

Yeah. She's a very sympathetic character, with lots to deal with and a very human way of doing so.
