So I'm Gonna Fly

flylikearobin asked: "That's mine, y'know."

lazarusoutlaw:

"Is it really?" Jason said, casually twirling the escrima stick. It’s not quite like twirling one of his knives, but the same principles apply. He just looked over at Dick and smirked. "Y’know, I think it’s actually mine now. Finders Keepers, big bird."

Dick leaned heavy on one leg, his hands on his hips like a disappointed teacher.  ”Very funny.  I didn’t think you’d like that principle.  Or, what, are you going to be totally OK with me keeping one of your discarded guns when I find one?”

He held out a hand.  ”C’mon.  Hand it over.”

This Red Hood had just given him some information, and his eyes narrowed in interest.  Smile still on his lips, he cocked his head.  ”So, you are a kid of a kid.  Adopted or biological?”

"For someone who is always so ‘I don’t have feelings. I am the night.’, he sure gets worried easily. And also a softy at heart." Thomas commented. While he never actually seen Grandpa Bruce act as Batman outside of videos, Uncle Dami was very similar. Heh, like father like son. 

He only realized his mistake after Dick’s comment. Crap. “Er… depends. Are you asking how I’m related to grandpa or… to my parents?”

"Oh, he’s got plenty of feelings.  I think he just feels safer hiding them."

Dick grinned, half apologetically, half mischievously at Red Hood.  ”Either, or both.  Or whichever one won’t create some sort of wormhole that destroys the very fabric of time and space.  Y’know, whichever.”

"Boy, I’ll say.  There was one time when I was Robin that I had the hiccups for twenty minutes.  B nearly panicked.  I think he thought I was going to explode or something.  Little tiny thing, like…"  Dick scrunched up his face, raising the pitch of his voice to a child’s.  “‘Hey you —HIC— bad guys!  Don’t —HIC— you mess wi— HIC— with us.  I’ll fight—HIC— you.’"

He laughed and shook his head.  ”Not really one of my proudest moments, I won’t lie.”

"Did he think you got infected by some sort of gas?" Thomas was always happy to hear stories about Grandpa and papa’s adventures. He giggled at Dick’s reenactment of what happened. "Heh I bet Gramps was secretly thinking how cute his tiny Robin was being." 

"Just about!  He went off to ask Alfred if he should start worrying.  I think he was planning to take me to Leslie in case something bad happened."  Dick laughed.  "Once it was over, I think he found it funnier.  He went and bought me ice cream because I was so miserable.  They were really hard!"

This Red Hood had just given him some information, and his eyes narrowed in interest.  Smile still on his lips, he cocked his head.  ”So, you are a kid of a kid.  Adopted or biological?”

"Seriously?"  Dick stumbled a bit, but managed to turn it into a loose cartwheel, righting himself once again.  "Oh man, I’m gonna have to try that next time!  I always get ones that last forever.  Not great when you’re trying to look imposing.  Or being stealthy.”

Thomas watched Dick’s cartwheel and grinned. He wouldn’t comment on the little stumble he did. “Yep. It worked for me, maybe it’ll work for you. I can imagine. Hiccups are just annoying. Bleh. I’m glad my technique works for me.”

"Boy, I’ll say.  There was one time when I was Robin that I had the hiccups for twenty minutes.  B nearly panicked.  I think he thought I was going to explode or something.  Little tiny thing, like…"  Dick scrunched up his face, raising the pitch of his voice to a child’s.  “‘Hey you —HIC— bad guys!  Don’t —HIC— you mess wi— HIC— with us.  I’ll fight—HIC— you.’"

The Blue Brothers

El Paso wasn’t a city Dick had had much experience with.  Haly’s Circus had come through here a couple times during a season when they were working a different circuit, but for some reason it hadn’t stuck, so Dick had never gone back.  It seemed like a nice enough place.

He pulled into the little motel he’d selected for this trip, far enough off the highway to not get many visitors, but close enough to get into town easily.  Here, he was just Robbie Muldoon, vacationing tourist, in no way any kind of vigilante or law enforcement.

At least, not by day.

By night, however, Nightwing was out.  He’d come to El Paso following rumors of a drug ring potentially moving to Blüdhaven and, well, he wanted to see if he could ”convince” them otherwise.

The city was a little more spread out than Dick was used to.  But, hey, everything’s bigger in Texas.

He grinned.  ”If you’re gonna get questions, I might as well try to make them fun, right?”

"Bingo. Gotta tread lightly when it comes to time traveling or suffer the consequences." Thomas wiggled his fingers at Dick to emphasize the ‘spookiness’ of what he said.

He laughed at the silly questions. “Well from what I heard, you can cure the hiccups from breathing in with your mouth, swallow twice, and then breathe out with your nose. I’ve tried it and it seemed to work.”

"Seriously?"  Dick stumbled a bit, but managed to turn it into a loose cartwheel, righting himself once again.  "Oh man, I’m gonna have to try that next time!  I always get ones that last forever.  Not great when you’re trying to look imposing.  Or being stealthy.”

Dick winced.  ”Ooh, yeah, I can see that.  I hope I haven’t been too inquisitive.  I’ve been told I get a little bit too curious about mysteries.”  He shrugged.  ”What can I say?  I’m a detective.”

"Naw, I totally understand. I mean if I was in the same situation, I would also ask a ton of questions." It was normal for his family to want all the details. 

"And I’m guessing, like any good time traveler, there are probably things you can’t tell me, right?"  He flipped onto his hands, walking along the ledge of the rooftop.  "So what kind of things can you say?  Are we still as fashionable as ever?  Has anyone found a cure for hiccoughs yet?  What about Brent’s Chili Dogs, is that still there?"

He grinned.  ”If you’re gonna get questions, I might as well try to make them fun, right?”

"Does that get hard?  Ending up in so many Gothams?  You seem pretty used to it."  This new Red Hood fascinated Dick, he wouldn’t lie.  Knowing that there was more family coming— anyone who wore the Bat mantle was family— was comforting to him.

"A little. I get homesick… and really it’s pretty tiring always having to explain who I am." It was always twenty questions and accusations of him being a fake or imposter. 

Dick winced.  ”Ooh, yeah, I can see that.  I hope I haven’t been too inquisitive.  I’ve been told I get a little bit too curious about mysteries.”  He shrugged.  ”What can I say?  I’m a detective.”

Dick pouted.  ”Aw, you mean there isn’t a Baby Justice League yet?  I guess that’s something you get to work on.”  He stopped on the edge of a roof, listening for signs of distress from below.  ”Do you know how you got here?  Or… I mean, Gotham doesn’t feel any different, but did I get future-launched?”

"I’m perfectly happy protecting Gotham." Thomas didn’t work well with others. He got nervous around too many people, especially those his own age. 

He stopped next to Dick and shrugged. “Hey wouldn’t be the first time I ended up somewhere I wasn’t suppose to.” He then shook his head. “Naw, pretty sure this is your Gotham and not mine. Though you can try contacting your Bats to make sure.”

"Does that get hard?  Ending up in so many Gothams?  You seem pretty used to it."  This new Red Hood fascinated Dick, he wouldn’t lie.  Knowing that there was more family coming— anyone who wore the Bat mantle was family— was comforting to him.

"So you’re Red Hood the Second.  Red Hood Jr."  He laughed.  "Did you get deputized Red Hood or did you pick it?  I like to hear we’re all still hanging around, training the next batch of heroes, from the looks of you."

"Haha. I suppose I am, but officially I’m just the Red Hood." Thomas laughed. "I picked it. Thought it was fitting since the other Red Hood had decided to retire. For reasons that I won’t reveal." For now or ever, he wasn’t exactly sure. It really just depended on how much information he was allowed to give out.

"Next batch huh? I’m not from that far into the future y’know. It’s not like everyone is adopting kids or popping out some of their own like your Batman did." He grinned at the mental image of Grandpa Bruce with all his kids.

Dick pouted.  ”Aw, you mean there isn’t a Baby Justice League yet?  I guess that’s something you get to work on.”  He stopped on the edge of a roof, listening for signs of distress from below.  ”Do you know how you got here?  Or… I mean, Gotham doesn’t feel any different, but did I get future-launched?”
