Fic: Evidence of Absence (PG13, DCU)

Title: Evidence of Absence
Rating: PG13
Fandom: DCU
Author Notes: I don't like kid!Damian (I do like him as an adult, though, and I love the big wonderful drama queen that is Ibn al Xu'ffasch), but at some point I'll have to start writing him. This is a first step in that direction.


Your teachers spoke of your father's legendary skills. He wasn't there when they taught you the five
ways to withstand pain.

Your grandfather mentioned sometimes the wrongheaded nobility of Gotham's dark champion. He wasn't t
here when they made you bleed your oath of allegiance to the Demon's Head.

Your mother could talk for hours about his heart, his passion. He wasn't there when you learned she
had tricked him into fatherhood.

At no time during your life was your father with you.

You came to understand that it meant that he loved you.

.finis.

Only you could have me not only read a kid!Damian story, but make me like it, too. :p

The last line really is fucking brilliant. ♥

Thanks! I do agree with you, though; Damian as he appears in comics is a #$*(&$# Mary Sue and they are @#(*&@$ng Tim.

Man, that last line almost makes him a true Robin, doesn't it?

He has yet to become something different to what he supposes he has to. I think he could be a great character once he does (which is another way to say that I miss Ibn).
