Spoilers: A Death in the Family
Warnings: the obvious ones, given what I'm spoiling

Summary: Danny has an unexpected visitor when he's supposed to be alone in Titans Tower
Word of the Day: agita, noun:
1. Agitation; anxiety.
2. Heartburn; indigestion.

The Call is Coming From Inside the Tower

It didn’t do much good, Danny supposed, checking for threats that needed to be stopped while the Teen Titans were off in space. He certainly couldn’t take them on himself.

‘Hm, possible terrorist activity in El Salvador.' He checked to see if there was an active superhero team there, and sent them a tip to check it out.


Danny let out a high-pitched (but not at all girly thank you very much) scream and leaped out of his chair, spinning around to confront his attacker. There was no way he was going to let someone get through him to the Titans’ systems, no way at all!

“….Jason, what the hell? What are you doing here?" Danny asked a moment later, when he realized that it was Robin who had spoken. He picked up his fallen chair with a flick of his wrist and surge of TK. "How did you even get in here?”

The other young teen hero looked at him… Sadly? Danny didn’t get it. He’d hardly ever seen that look on Jason’s face, and never while in costume.

“I’m not here, Danny. That’s the thing,” Jason said solemnly.

Danny laughed. “What do you mean, 'I’m not here’, I can see you right in front of–” he went to give Jason a friendly clap on the shoulder, and yelped when his hand went right through Jason’s body instead, “me?!”

Title: But To Love More
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Teen Titans v2 #14-15 and #19, Titans v1 #25
Prompt: from Saphire-Dance -- "Roy just flirts with everyone though, boy, girl, non binary cuties
it's just his default state of oh my gosh i love everyone
And I think a lot of people brush him off as not being serious, but no really he totally means to flirt and is super serious I will date you right now it will be so awesome" (We were just chatting, but the plotbunny bit hard.)
Warnings: so much kissing, some talk of sex (nothing explicit), guns because Jason shows up, strong language because Jason shows up
Word Count: 4035
Summary: Roy loves everyone, as much as they'll let him.
Note: Somehow I ended up anti-shipping Donna/Roy and shipping Lilith/Roy super hard over the course of writing this. Oops. The sections aren't quite chronological, with the "bad idea" at the start because I didn't want to end this on a down note.
Note II: Thanks to Daggerpen for randomly listing off other Titans for Roy to kiss when I couldn't think of enough. And many thanks for being a great beta-reader!

Word of the Day: billet-doux, noun: a love letter

But To Love More
One Teen Titan Roy Harper Has Kissed But Dating Is a Bad Idea
And Five Teen Titans He's Kissed and Would Totally Date

Roy has no illusions about love conquering all. He already knows very well that love gets chewed up and spit out by life like everything else. But he doesn't let that stop him from looking. Even if love doesn't last, he's going to enjoy it while he can, for however long he has it... and with whoever will let him love them.

Most people think he isn't serious. They telegraph pretty clearly that they consider the kissing, the dating, the sex all in fun -- a welcome bit of intimacy and enjoyment, but nothing serious. Roy doesn't see the need to correct them, doesn't feel like putting his heart out there on the line when they make it clear that they won't be. But he cherishes all of them.

Prompt: "Give me a couple and I'll write a drabble about them as parents." An anonymous person on Tumblr prompted me with Cassandra/Jason Todd

Word Count: 265
Summary: Jason and Cass's baby is here, and Jason has doubts.
Word of the Day: bosh, noun: Absurd or foolish talk; nonsense.
Note: Probably not part of the Heart!verse, that AU is pretty defunct, but it could be read as such.


"Come here." Cass said impatiently. But Jason still hung back, eyes fixed on the tiny bundle in Cass’s arms.

"But I…"

Cass sighed as Jason trailed off and gave her a helpless, overwhelmed look. “Nine months was not long enough to get used to this idea?”

"I don’t think nine years would be enough.”

"If it was going to take nine years," Cass replied dryly, "I would have made you carry him."

That startled a laugh out of Jason. He didn’t doubt it. Damian would probably help her, in that case. He took a few steps toward the hospital bed, feeling very awkward in the protective gown and gloves that the nurses had stuck him in.

He stared down at the tiny baby — pale skin new and especially pink, chubby little cheeks making his face almost comically round, and a dark tuft of hair atop his little head. The baby looked so delicate and small, even though Jason knew that he was of a healthy weight and size according to the doctor.

"I don’t… remember much… about my dad. I don’t know how to…"

"You read the books." Cass interrupted. "You read the books to me. We know enough to start.”

Jason reached out, laid a hand over Cass’s where it rested against their baby’s side. His little eyes fluttered open for a moment, but drifted closed again as the baby made a contented little sound.

"No matter what," Jason said solemnly, "we’re not naming him Richard."

"I was thinking ‘Bruce’." Cass replied, eyes sparkling with mischief.

"You wouldn’t.”

"He’d cry. So much."

Safety In a Familiar Face

For a town that was "owned" by Batman and his family of crime-fighting vigilantes, Gotham City sure did seem to attract a lot of metahuman and magic-using villains. That was a thought that popped into Batgirl's mind as she and Black Bat chased a self-styled 'master of the mystical arts', as he drove away from his so-far-successful heist of the small Jacobi Museum.

"At this point," Batgirl commented dryly, as the two ladies leaped a gap between buildings to keep up with the speeding Honda Accord weaving through the light traffic of mid-evening -- and one would think a 'mystical master' would drive a better car, or even some sort of magical transport, "don't you think people would learn not to bring expensive or powerful artifacts to Gotham?"

"Why wouldn't they?" Black Bat replied with a grin, "Best security guards in the world!"

Batgirl gave a short laugh and conceded, "Good point."

The Heart Already Knows

He didn't have much chance to get to know Jason when he was alive.

No, that's a lie. He had his chances, but he rarely ever took them. He'd been angry with Bruce, too angry to see past his own hurt and rejection to the young boy in need of a guiding hand. In need of a big brother.

Oh, he didn't stay away the entire time that Jason was acting as Robin. After Alfred mentioned his growing concerns over how violently angry Jason could get with certain criminals, Dick managed to swallow his pride long enough to go back to the manor and at least attempt to socialize with his replacement.
