Day 10 - Put your characters in the weirdest AU you can imagine.

Summary: Dick’s eleven. Not thirteen and eager to prove himself. Not seventeen and mourning a brother. Not nineteen and wishing his best friend wasn’t dead and Bruce would look him in the eyes. He’s only eleven. So why does he remember all of that?

It starts with a dream.

A terrible, heart-wrenching dream, and he wants to cry his eyes out and curl up under his sheets just to block out the world. It’s a dream that has him waking up with a jolt, eyes wide and terrified as things he’s never experienced play through his mind. There’s so much, and it bombards him all at once. He can’t make sense of any of it, and it’s horrible. He wants it to stop.

It takes a few moments, but he’s finally able to dig through everything swirling around in his head and he remembers who he is.

His name is Richard—Dick. He’s eleven years old. He’s the ward of Bruce Wayne. He’s Robin.

Dick has faced the Joker, the Riddler, Mr. Freeze—most of Gotham’s underworld, really—and nothing, not even the psychotic clown, terrifies him as much as the new memories swirling around in his mind. He’d take the criminals any day, he thinks.
