Title: Echo
Fandom: Dexter
Prompt: #28, Free Association
Rating: PG13
Warnings: None besides the fandom.
Summary: Dexter has never done well with psychologists.
Spoilers: Spoilers for S1.
Word Count: A bit over a hundred words.


They had been at this for half an hour now, and Dexter was growing restless. Psychological tests were so boring; he'd rather -much rather- be outside hunting something. But one of the first things Harry had ever taught him had been patience.

"Tree."

"Home."

"Ocean."

"..."

"Answer faster. Ocean."

"Swim."

"Blood."

"Silence."

"No. You've got to say red."

"What's the difference?"

"Doctors can tell a lot about you from what you answer. You've got to know what to answer, otherwise they'll know you are... different, son. You can't let that happen."

"Okay, dad."

"Good. Let's practice some more. Car."

"Road."

"Cross."

"Church."

"Blood."

"Red."

"Good, that's good."

You know, Harry, if he ever gets past the Code, I am blaming you for his successful career. I'm blaming you for his successful career *now*, you understand, but still.

Also, silence. Yipes.

Some of the doubts I have about Alfred creep up when thinking about Harry, mostly what the hell where they thinking?

*ponders* Pretty much any combination would be awesome, wouldn't it? Harry unofficially adopting Bruce (say, he doesn't outright do so, but an Alfredless Bruce convinces -he's a pretty convincing boy, we do know that- Harry to quit the force, move to the Manor with his family, and work as his bodyguard/father figure), a childless Wayne couple adopting a recently orphaned Dexter just before they are killed themselves, etc.

Clearly, you need to write all possible combinations. *nodnod*

For science. :p

For JUSTICE.

I love Harry as it is and with every fic you make me love him more. Of course he'd teach Dexter this. Oh, Harry. ♥

Dexter's education, I suspect, was a fascinating affair *g*. I do hope we'll get more of that.
