Tim and Jason confess their undying love for each other in a death situation. warning for cheese and rainbow fluff
"The bomb will go off in 5 minutes! “
Nightwing voice came through the comm.
Tim wasn’texpecting this when he wore his Red Robin uniform earlier this night. They had an Intel that the lunatic
that’s been scattering bombs all around Gotham, will be in Gotham’s
general hospital tonight.
And they did find him, Along with
several bombs all over the building.
With batman gone for league business
it left Nightwing, Red hood, Red Robin and Robin to evacuate the building and
try to locate the bombs, and eliminate the threat.
He and Jason were in the ground floor
to diffuse the one that was located there, when suddenly the bomb that was on
the first floor detonated. In seconds the rumble and pieces of the roof feel on
Luckily a large portion of the roof
was blocked by smaller ones, and prevented it from turning them into pancakes.
They were now in a tiny little room made by fallen debits, and with no way out.
“I don’t know if this is our lucky day,
cause you know we’re not pancakes yet, or worse day since we didn’t detect any
bombs in the first floor”
“The worst thing babybird is that we
have to wait for Dicky or the demon spawn to get out of here, we can’t move any
of those rocks or they will fall on us”
Tim took out the flashlight from his
belt and turned it on. He looked at the man beside him, and panic rose in him.
Jason’s red helmet was fractured at the head level, fracture that wasn’t there
before the upper floor fell on them.
“Hood your head. Are you hurt?!”
“Nah the helmet took the hit, no need
to worry” said Jason while taking his helmet off, and giving Tim one of those
million dollar smiles.
Tim didn’t know at what point he
became to care so deeply for the other man. Hah! Who was he kidding, he began to
care for Jason ever since he wore the green panties, and he was an itty bitty
stalker with a camera. He cared for him even the man came back from the dead
and went Rambo on all of them.
And then he remembered.
“Jason! The bomb! We didn’t defuse the bomb before the upper floor fell on us, it still active!”
“Ho shit, Red hood to Nightwing, the
first floor bomb detonated and we’re under it rumble, we didn’t defuse the bomb
on the ground floor, so get your ass in here and deactivate it before it blows the whole building up”
‘And turn us to barbecue meat in the
process’ added Tim mentally.
“Got it, am on my way”
“I hate to just sit back and wait”
Jason turned to look at him with that
glint of amusement and –dare he hope- affection that he always seems to wear
“I can keep you busy if you want”
suggested Jason with a suggestive wiggle of eyebrows.
And like every time Jason teased him
Tim could feel his cheeks and ears heating up. God, he knows Jason is just
kidding, that he is teasing him, but he can’t help but blush every time.
“Would you stop
with the sexual innuendos, we’re in a tricky situation here”
“I’ll stop when you stop blushing every time, it so much fun”
“You should find
“Ho but I do
have hobbies. Dressing up as a sexy vigilante, shooting people in the head, or
kneecaps when you are around, go to other galaxy’s to fight giant grasshoppers,
and of course making my babybird blush all over”
to understand Damian’s need to stab people”
smiling broadly now, Tim can see the dimples on his cheek even in the dim light
because of how close they were. And God this proximity was giving him ideas.
How it would be so easy to just place his hand on Jason’s neck and to just drag
him down and taste those lips.
Timmy, time to get your shit together’
But who can get
his shit together with Jason Peter Todd around.
Jason just took
Tim’s head under his arm and gave a noogie.
“You’re just was
too cute not to tease babybird”
“Jason I swear
“Guys, we have

Neither of them
said anything, Jason just let him go and frowned at the rocks in front of them.
damaged the bomb, and I can’t deactivate it, I can’t move it either it too fragile
now, it will detonate”
“Can you move
the rocks around us so we so we can get out” Tim said with worry creeping into his voice.
“They are too
big, and if I try to blow them with plastic they will fall on you, I… Guys I-
“It fine Dicky,
how long until the bomb go off” Jason said over the comm in a calm manner.
expecting this when he wore his uniform this night. He wasn’t expecting to die
tonight, not like this.
He turned to
look at his partner. Yes partner, he and Jason were working together more often
than not. And what began as a simple Intel share turned into friendship.
“Well I guess
this is it Babybird.”
“Well I didn’t
expect I’ll live this long anyways”
“And it seems
am just destined to die blowed up I guess”
And Tim just
realized how this is similar to Jason’s death, how he died blowed up in a dirty
warehouse at the hand of the joker. And he just couldn’t help but reach out and
take Jason’s hand.
alone this time Jay. Am here till the end”
He could feel
Jason squeezing his hand tighter around his, he could see the sadness in his
eyes, but weirdly he had a feeling that sadness wasn’t for himself.
“Am sorry it
have to end here for you, and with me of all people”
“Yeah I would
rather like not to die in here today, but Jason, there’s no one I’d rather die
beside but you” And god only
knows how much he means it. Over the past couple of years Jason has gone from
enemy, to ‘that guy who tried to kill me but we’re cool now’, to partners, to
friends. And more than just a mere friend on Tim’s side.
He always cared
deeply for Jason, even when he was trying to off him.
But trough this
couple of years his feelings have grown, all those night patrolling together,
the night spent at each other apartments after a rough night, and after that
the time they spend together during the day watching movies and throwing stupid
jokes at each other.
Before he knew
it he was head over heels for Jason ,The goddamn Red Hood, Todd.
It didn’t help
that the guy was drop dead fucking gorgeous, with his stupid beautiful face,
and stupid hot body, with the sass and wits on the side.
stared at him and squeezed their joined hands harder. And he was looking at him
with some much naked affection that Tim couldn’t breathe.
“Does it hurt?”
“Not as much as
you think it will, when the blow hits you it knocks you out”
raised his hands to Tim’s face and slowly took away his domino, and threw it
somewhere behind him.
He took Tim’s
head between his large hands and began stroking his face, neck and hair.
His hands were
“I wish I could
get you out of here Babybird, you don’t deserve to die like this, you really
“So are you
Jay. You don’t deserve to die like this, not again. And no don’t you dare give
me the I don’t deserve it speech. And am just going to say what I say every
time. You are a good person who fucked up. You had your reasons. Period.”
Again with the
million dollar smile, Jason just stocked Tim’s face and said “you’re too good
for me Tim”
And just like
that he dragged Tim’s face to his and captured his lips, in a soft chaste kiss.
Getting over his initial surprise, Tim grasped Jason’s neck and pulled him closer,
putting more pressure on their sealed lips.
He shyly licked
Jason’s upper lip seeking entrance, and the older boy opened his lips, he
licked his mouth roof, and entangled their tongues.
Their kiss was
passionate, but not hurried like they had all the time in the world.
finally pulled apart from each other in desperate need for air. Jason looked
punch drunk, with a stupid smile on his face.
“God Tim you
have no idea for how long I wanted to do that”
“And you waited
until death situation, could you be more cliché”
“Don’t sass me
on our last minutes in this life Red… how much do we still have?”
“… about 11
“…I wish I’d had
more time to spend with you Tim”
and with the way he was looking at him, with so much sadness and affection, Tim couldn’t help but believe it.
“I wish I could
have held you, kissed you, I wish I had the courage to just kiss you like I just
did. Tim I-
“I wish I could
make love to you, I wish I have just gave up to my urges to lean you over any
flat surface and ravaged you”
is quite mutual, some of the poses you strike during battle are downright
“So am not the only oblivious one here” said
Jason while laughing
“Tim I wish I
didn’t waste all that time denying my feelings for you…. and listened more to
Kori on shit like that”
“Yeah you have
listened to her”
Tim couldn’t help but laugh. He was happy, the last seconds of life he had, he is listening to
the man he loves confess his heart to him and making stupid jokes. What more
could he ask for.
closer to Jason, and wrapped his arms around his wide chest. He looked right
into his emerald eyes.
And he just
wished for all the Gods and divinity out there, to give him more time, to give
him a chance to love and be loved by this man.
“I love you
And he just
looked fascinated as those eyes lit, with so much love, god he didn’t know
that eyes can show this much emotions.
His heart just
swelled, it felt bigger than his chest, like it could no longer be contained .
“I love you
And that ball
in his trough just vanished.
And he just
lost himself in the feeling of Jason’s lips one his.
And they both
braced themselves for the blast and then…
seconds later, the huge portion of concrete above them began to move, and was
lifted in the air.
The two of them
were able to go out easily after that.
A bat device
was stuck to the roof of the second floor and was the one who easily lifted the
piece of the roof.
Tim just glared
at his older brother.
“Can I know why
you didn’t do that sooner? And why the hell didn’t the bomb go off?”
diffused the bomb as soon as you called me in”
“Then what the
didn’t even look guilty, like he didn’t make his two younger brothers think
they were going to die.
“Look it was
painful just looking at you two with all that UST and quiet pining. It was the
perfect opportunity to get you to sort your things out”
And he was
right, if they weren’t confronted to this life and death situation they wouldn’t have come clean about their feelings to each other.
weren’t going to admit that to their Dick of brother now would they.
“Look Dicky, I
appreciate the gesture and all that. So that why am going to give you a 2
minute head start before I start chasing you and making you a fucking crépe with bullet holes”
start running Dick, am not stopping him”
And Jason just
gave him that dangerous smile, the one full of teeth.
going to get of this without consequences.
And just as
Dick started running, Jason leaned in and captured his lips in a sweet kiss.
“Wish me luck
Yeah maybe he
should try to make Jason go easy on Dick after all.
