Title: Cold Thoughts
Fandom: Simon Spector
Prompt: #17, Group Think
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Nobody is nice in this universe.
Summary: Love takes many forms. All of them are scary.
Word Count: About a hundred and ten.
Author Notes: A companion piece to Whoever Pays Any Attention To The Syntax Of Things, it won't make much sense if you haven't read it.


They know about her body. They think they know about the Case. They think he goes to it every now and then to feel nostalgic or to wallow in sorrow, to convince himself that he had to kill her, or to damn the day he finally shot her.

What he does is thinking. He thinks about the taxonomy of betrayal, about the relative worth of promises, about things he'd kill rather than make safe. He thinks about the damage caused by stun bullets against the skull. He thinks, mostly, about temptation and responsibility.

What he doesn't do is deactivate the hidden cryogenic machinery that keeps Robin dead.

But he keeps his own version of hope.

.finis.

Oh. Oh, that's... that's *terrifying*.

It's like Bruce making his own BATMAN ANNUAL 25. Only Robin was already kind of Red Hood.

:D That was exactly what I was thinking of as I wrote it.

I knew you were going to scare the crap out of me.

But you vastly exceeded my expectations of terror. Gleep.

I read this and the first thing I thought of was a Fall Out Boy song. I think I might need help, possibly.

But. "This is a love song in my own way" totally fits here, OK! :p

Would it be OK for me to admit I find this fairly disturbing?

I can be a very disturbing sort of person, it's true. :p

But. This is totally a love story. In it's own way. *pets it*

Not that love stories aren't disturbing per se. *g*

But is he humming hallelujah, Sockich, or only banging the doldrums?

I'm pretty sure it depends on the kind of day he's having. Though now that I think about it, he's probably a lot like a lawyer, with the way he's always trying to...

*stops*

*thinks about how fucking well this fits*

...I find myself suddenly appreciating FOB songs on a whole new level. Pete Wentz really is an evil mastermind cult leader, isn't he? :D
