Could I request some Jason angst? Pretty please? Or rather, angsty please?
Why not? You caught me in the right mood
Jason doesn’t laugh out loud anymore. Laughter has bad associations, so he sort of smiles behind his hand instead. It’s an unconscious thing, and he hasn’t noticed the change. (Have Alfred and Bruce noticed? You betcha. Jason used to laugh a lot when he was little, and the difference is upsetting.)
Similar: Jason used to watch a lot of old TV reruns with Alfred, but now the laugh tracks make him edgy, and he can’t sit through more than a few minutes.
During the years where Jason was dead, Bruce ritualized a lot of the stuff he and Jason used to do together, and even though Jason’s back now, he’s still keeping up the schedule. That means that Jason can’t do stuff like go to his favorite restaurant on his birthday without running into Bruce. He doesn’t want to run into Bruce. He doesn’t go to his favorite restaurants anymore.
Canonically speaking, when Bruce adopted Tim, it was all over the newspapers. That was a year after Under the Red Hood, so Jason must have seen it, and I’m guessing that wasn’t fun for him.
It’s one thing to lose the role of Robin, but it’s also important to remember that Bruce was Jason’s dad, in the eyes of the law and the family. If it was hard to hear that Tim replaced him as Robin, I imagine that Tim becoming Bruce’s son was full-on soul crushing :)

He’s old, you guys. Abe is ten years old and I don’t know how to cope with it. I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday, fuck, I miss that day. Well, somewhat, only the Abe arriving part, not the watching Heidi give birth part. The Heidi bitching about labor part can burn in hell. -Eric
Cartman, you complained more about the labor than she did. But you’re right, our son isn’t a baby anymore. He’s growing up and it’s so weird to both of us. He was the little kid who was grabbing on to both of us, now he’s not even clinging anymore. Seeing him grow up really makes our age feel even older. -Kyle
You got that right, babe. Abe, you’ve been nothing but a miracle to both of us. You’ve really improved our lives just by being here, you’ve proved that even I can be the most badass dad ever. You’re my favorite little man, the son I never thought would be this amazing. -Eric
Abe, you’re going to go a long way, I’m sure of it. You’ve made mine and your dad’s life better. Even when you act like your dad sometimes, it’s still one of my favorite things about you. You care about everyone, especially your little sister. You’re the best big brother she could ask for. We both love you more than anything, and happy birthday, Abe. -Kyle
We really went overboard on the cheese factor there, Kyle. -Eric

You weren’t sure what you’d expected when you walked towards the bathroom, but you surely hadn’t expected this. In all homestly, you just wanted to brush your teeth and hair so that you would look presetable for the outside world, instead of looking like you had just watched a whole season of your favourite show (Which, in fact, you had, but that was not the point). But instead of a toothbrush, you were greeted with something you hadn’t thought you would ever see: Sherlock Holmes walking out of the bathroom, shirtless, with only a white towel wrapped around his waist.
You felt your cheeks heat up as you let your eyes slide over his body, which was still warm and wet from the shower he had taken just a few minutes ago. Sherlock’s eyes followed you in amusement as you were desperately trying to search for words.
‘‘You seem to have forgotten how to speack proper English,’‘ Sherlock stated, but you did hear a slightly teasing tone, which made you smile a little. Finally, you finally managed to look up into his eyes instead of looking at his fit body, and you flashed him an apologizing smile while doing so.
‘‘I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to bump into you like that, not now you’re…-’’
You waved your hand up and down his body to finish your sentence, and a content smile made it way onto the detective’s face.
‘‘Am I making you uncomfortable, (Y/n)?’‘ He suddenly asked in a low voice, which caused a pleasant shiver to go down your spine. Your cheeks heated up again as you manage to stutter:
‘‘What? No! I’m completely fine here, nothing to worry about…’’
You mentally facepalmed at your own words. You had been living with Sherlock and his blogger John for about half a year now, but still hadn’t manage to control your crush on the consulting detective. It was both a blessing and a curse to share an apartment with him, but now this situation was leaving you speechless.
What you didn’t expect though, was for Sherlock to take a step forward so that the two of you were merely centimeters apart. His face was very close to yours now, and you could even feel his breath on your face. You swallowed as his eyes flicked between your own (e/c) ones and your lips, feeling you heartbeat speed up. Was he about to kiss you?
Sherlock leaned in a bit more, his mouth now being right next to your ear.
‘‘That’s good. I wouldn’t want you to feel uncomfortable around me, now would I?’‘ He whipsered in a low voice as you shivered again, while closing your eyes. But then you felt a flash of wind flow past you as Sherlock took a step back with a teasing glare in his eyes, mixed with something that looked like…lust?
And as fast as he had appeared, he walked away again, leaving you behind as a stuttering and blushing mess.
‘That tease!’ You thought, as you ran a hand through your hair. He knew exactly what he was doing to you, and you weren’t sure if you liked his way of playing this game or not. Oh well, at least you had seen him shirtless. And that fact surely made your day a hundred percent better already.
This guy was just standing in Rundle Mall blindfolded with his arms wide open ready to hug it out with anyone willing to hug him. It was one of the best hugs I’ve gotten technique wise, the genuine warmth and friendliness more hugs should have.
I can’t help but think if the situation would be different if a woman did this, and I did notice a distinct lack of men wanting a nice hug. But for a moment I wanted to forget all the politics and just appreciate this guy. This guy is rad. This guy probably made so many people’s days. He sure made mine a bit better.
