I almost didn’t post this today, tbh - but I choose to trust the two lovely people who told me I wouldn’t make a fool out of me showing y’all this
The Perks of being Jason Todd
Summary: It’s way too easy to convince Jason to pick Dick’s drunk brother up from a party. Which may or may not have to do with his stupid crush.
Jason dreaded what Dick would say the moment he picked up the phone. So he stared at the device before reclining back in his chair and finally giving in.
“I got good news and bad news.”
“Don’t you always?” He twirled his pencil in the hand not holding the phone. His thesis was due in two months and he really had wanted to work on it today – but Dick Grayson was a man on a mission and Jason knew not to stand in his way. Mostly because it ended up advantageous for him, too.
“The dean agreed to listen to your proposal about female hygiene products in the bathrooms.”
“Fuck yes. Just give them some pads, at least, dammit, it’s not that hard.”
Dick chuckled mirthlessly. “He’s going to listen, Jay, no one said anything about him agreeing with you. You remember the last time you asked him to give out free stuff to the student body?”
“Pretty sure HE won’t forget it either. - So what’s the deal? When can I talk to him? In fact, I got some time right now.” Jason turned the page on his notepad.
“Not before next Friday?”
“Next Friday, huh.” He jotted down the date and underlined it twice. Jason liked to be prepared for this kind of stuff and he would make sure to let Donna do most of the talking this time. Nobody could refuse her; she was a goddess and she knew it.
“Jay,” Dick said, his voice low enough to be little more than a hiss through the phone. “About the bad news.”
Of course. There was always a catch. “What is it? Does he want a public apology?”
“Actually, it’s a favor.”
“Geeze, what does he want?” Slapping his hand on the desk, he stood, starting to pace through his room.
“It’s for me actually.” Jason stopped dead in his tracks. Dick Grayson, the golden boy himself, needed a favor from the one student who just couldn’t keep his mouth shut and study nicely like all the other students on campus?
“Can you pick up my little brother?”
