Better off with you watching over me (Jason Todd x Reader)
A/N: Okay so I finally finished this… at uni in
the library. You’re all a bad influence on me. I had a hard time figuring out
how graphic to go with this so hope this is what you were looking for? Anyway,
here ya go anon ;)
staring outside the window again. It was dark outside. Apart from some outlines
and dim lighting you didn’t see anything, you just heard the rain ticking on
the window and the warmth of a blanket around you. You gritted your teeth as
you were trying very hard not to think of the million things that could be
going wrong with Jason right now. After his death he had become more reckless…
and you were scared you weren’t going to get him back again if something…
happened. You shook your head as you tried your damn best to ban those ideas
out of your head. They were no good now and they never would be. It was part of
the deal to grid and bear it. You grabbed your laptop and dropped yourself in
his couch. Not quite as luxurious as his room at Bruce’s place, but more…
anonymous somehow. It felt good to be alone together but at moments like these
the place just felt desolate.
You opened your
laptop and glanced at the time. 2 am. Damnit, you were lucky you didn’t have
anywhere to be the next morning. Not that you wouldn’t be there if you had. You
had just had one of those days where you couldn’t get him off of your mind. You
sensed something was off, usually when this happened he came back more torn up
than usual. You glanced over at the bandages and the disinfectant you put
ready. “Jason where the hell are you even at.” You murmured. You checked some
texts online, they were interesting enough but not to the extent they banned
the worry that clung to you like wet clothes. You decided laying down was an
option and started to dose off when you heard someone enter the door and
closing it behind him. You opened your eyes. Not sure what you expected to see.
“ Jay… please tell me you’re still alive.”
“ Well, I’m technically undead.” You opened your eyes and saw him standing
there in the doorway. Suprisingly, he didn’t seem too badly hurt. Some cuts and
bruises at most. Nothing he wouldn’t have been able to easily fix himself. He
flung his leather jacket in the general direction of a chair where It flung
over the back support.
“ An ungodly hour for a booty call. What the fuck are you doing here at this
time?” He asked, sounding tired and utterly done with the world in and of
“ I wanted to check up on you. What happened?”
“ You’re better off not knowing.” He grunted. He looked frustrated and something
you could not define as easily.
“ Bad day at work, huh?”
“ Doesn’t begin to cover it.” He walked over to you and you noticed something
was really, really wrong this time. “
Jason what happened.” He sighed and sat next to you, legs spread and taking up
a lot of space in the couch.
“ I stopped some jackass from killing a woman. “
“ That seems like a good thing to me.”
“ Not the first victim. And she’s alive, but in a coma. Fuck, she looked like
you. Same… hair and build.“ You arched your eyebrows.
“ Did you think she was me?”
“ Of course not, I’d recognize your ass anywhere.” He grinned but it wasn’t
“ Jay.” You were pleading with him not to joke about this for once. He always
“ No. But it served as a reminder. Being with you puts you in the line of fire.
I made a fair share of enemies, maybe she was supposed to remind me of you.
They could have found out I’m not entirely on my own. Maybe you should… steer
clear for a while.” He started to take off his clothes, revealing some cuts and
bruises but once again nothing he couldn’t handle himself.
“ I know
for a fact you’re not self-conscious about how you look so how exactly do you
intend to persuade me if you’re gonna run around shirtless?” That earned you a smile. You followed him
into the bathroom as he ran some water of the shower already. He used with hot
water, and it took some time for the thing to heat up. He got under the water
but you knew he could still hear you and vice versa.
“ I’m serious, y/n.”
“ About the being without me for a while… Indefinitely you mean? You’re never
gonna stop being who you are, doing what you do. I ain’t going anywhere. I know
the risks and the code to the gun safe.” He looked at you proudly through
strands of hair stuck to his face.
“ My little rascal. No, just until I know for sure he wasn’t working for
someone or a copycat.”
“ Not a chance that I’m staying away from you Jason. If I’m not around you get
even more trigger-happy out there.”
“ How’d you know?”
“ I just do.”
even try to contend your statement. This wasn’t a first, but last time you had
a massive fight over it. He seemed almost too calm now, concerned rather than
pissed off because you wouldn’t listen to his suggestion of steering clear from
him. Like he didn’t expect anything else from you at this point. You decided to
just let him shower and looked at him. Damn, he looked good, almost unreal. The
most attractive zombie you’d ever seen. When he was drying off he looked at you
again, with the torn expression he had before.
You walked over to him and noticed he kept his hands off of you, not even
pulling you into a hug. Considering just how physical he usually was, you
couldn’t see that as a good sign.
“ Jason, mind telling me why you’re not even touching me?” No response. “Hey,
look at me. You’re not going to lose me. I’d crawl my way out of the grave to
be with you too”
He looked at you with a sense of guilt in his eyes somehow. “ You might not get
You clung to him, head on his still on his bare chest, and felt his hands slip
around you as well. He pulled you close, first carefully as if you’d break then
the way you were used to. Old habits die hard.
“ I’d lose
my goddamn mind without you. “ he practically whispered against your hair.
“ I’m afraid you’re beyond that point anyway Jay. “ The fact that he didn’t
come up with a quip to counter yours showed just how haunted he was by the
thought of losing you. When you backed up a little you noticed the trail a tear
left on his cheek. Jason didn’t do bawling, barely did crying, so that meant
that it got to him. Damnit.
save or avenge me.” He cringed at the word avenge, thinking of what that
“ I love you. I’d rather not have to avenge you.” He said, in a surprisingly
“ I know. But I’m dating you of all people. They’d only come after me if they
had a death wish.”
“ Some of ‘em do. Hell, most of them
do. What have I got to fucking offer you anyway? You’ve got a life, I’m
spending my nights hunting monsters down. And I can’t get the damn image of
that woman out of my head, but then as you. “
“ Then we have to replace it with another image. Of a very, very alive and safe
You grabbed his hand and lead him to the bed while unzipping your cardigan. At first he seemed frozen in place but he
caved quickly when he saw the look in your eyes, that you weren’t just doing
this in an attempt to make him feel less like shit.
knew it he had helped you out of the rest of your clothes as well and you ended
up underneath the sheets. His touch, his body felt warm against your skin, that
hadn’t changed since the Lazarus pit. He was still hot-blooded in personality
and sheer body heat. And you still reveled in both. His kisses were greedy,
desperate, like this was the last chance he’d ever get to be with you. You
pushed him away but he started kissing your neck.
“ Jay, not that I’m complaining but…” “ Shhh, unless you’re about to tell me
what you want just stop thinking.” He found
a particularly sensitive spot on your neck.
“ Fuck you’re good at this.”
“ You’re still looking at me as if you’re saying goodbye somehow. Like you’re
trying to get the image of me in your head.” By now you could read the man like
He wanted to get back to your neck but you shoved him off of you and got on top
“ Jay, I’m not going anywhere. And I’m gonna be in more harm’s way if I try to
track you down after you decided to move. And we both know I’ll do it. I won’t
deal with you being stripped from my life again.” He sighed, still staring at
you. He felt his way up from your tighs to your side to your breasts where he
lingered before moving to your arms and shoulders when you leaned forward a
little, supporting on your arms. You couldn’t help but lean in to his touch.
Didn’t help your resistance that he looked at you with a look of amazement in
his eyes. As if he couldn’t believe you were even real.
“ You’re the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen. “
“ Flattery isn’t gonna get you off the hook, Jason. Promise me you won’t
He gritted his teeth, looking you in the eyes again. He pushed your arms from
under you, landing your upper body on top of him. “ You really gotta learn to
shut up from time to time.” He knotted his fingers in your hair and and kissed
you, deepening the kiss and making you get lost in it again. He gently put you
on your back again and caressed your body and traced butterfly kisses from your
collar bone down to your stomach where he lingered for a little while.
When he wasn’t kissing you somewhere the sense of panic of him leaving crept up
on you again.
“ ‘C mon Jason. I’m better off with you watching over me.”
He tried to get lower but you put stopped him with your knees, he looked at you
“ Babe, we both know you can’t stop me.”
“ We both you know you wouldn’t do anything if I didn’t want you to.” He
“ I’m just trying to keep you alive.”
“ Then stay. Promise me. “ He got off of you and rolled over to his side of the
You sighed. “You get a week, I’ll work from here for the time being. This place
is surprisingly well secured and I got taught how to use a gun by you. I’ll
wear a bulletproof vest whenever you’re away. And then we drop this. Deal?” He
ran his hand through his still wet hair, seeming to convince himself to go. You
put your hand on his abdomen and kissed him, up his body, properly, not
“ Besides…” You got to his lips and pressed your body against his as well as
you could. “ How long can you really go without this? ”
“ Fucking hell, fine.” He grabbed you from the back of your head and kissed you
greedily again, this time just with the familiar fire that seemed to be running
through his veins. He grabbed a condom and got on top of you again. “ If you
want me to I can first…”
“ No. I’ve waited long enough.” He grinned and placed the palm of his hand on
your chest while he went down on you. After he had you gasping for air almost
making you come, you managed to bring out “ You’re fucking evil Jason.”
“ No, but I am about to…” He got in you. “ fuck you though.”
“ Always.” He kissed you again, hard, and as you felt him moving with you.
After you came together, he whispered in your ear. “ I love you. So much it
hurts to know how much danger it puts you in.”
You kissed his shoulder.
“ Imagine what it’s like being me then. At least I’m not hunting down the scum
of the earth.”
“ Just Gotham.”
“ Cause that’s reassuring.”
He laughed, and you could tell he wasn’t faking it. “ You’re glorious. In every
way. Looks, personality,.. what the fuck did I ever do to get you?”
“ Come back from the dead? I mean, I seem to have a thing for zombies? “
“ Really, got a history do you?”
“ Nooo… just one. But hey, when you got your hands on the hot one.” He brushed
some hair out of your face.
“ I adore you.”
“ Likewise. “
He seemed happy again, demons driven away. At least for a while. But regardless
of whether he wanted you to or not; you would be there to do so whenever he
needed you to.
Because you needed nights like these at least as much.
Dick Grayson x Platonic!Reader, Jason Todd x Reader
Request:Hi, can I request a fic where the reader is one of Dick Grayson’s closest friends that he’s known for a long time. And then he just recently introduced her to his brothers, Wally and etc and she’s almost the complete opposite of Jason (she’s shy, not adventurous, sensitive) but somehow they all seem to think she should be with Jason so they try to set them up but keep failing but it finally works and they see this new side of Jason that she brings out?
Word Count: 1166
It had been
about three months since you met all of Dicks’ brothers and Wally from the team.
You were excited when he told you that you finally were going to meet everyone
but no matter how much you were excited, you were still your shy self. Y/n
always tended to become shy when meeting new people, never knowing if she could
fully trust them even when she knew who they were and what they did. It had
taken her a little over a month to come out of her shell in front of everyone.
As time went
by you got closer to them, spending most of your free-time with everyone. You
were a computer genesis; it was easy for you to hack into anywhere no matter
how strong the firewall was. When all the boys learned of this, they quickly
asked you to help them out from time to time. Occasionally, Damian would ask
you to randomly hack someone or to see if you could get him a certain video
game for free; at first you were hesitant but now you had no problem with doing
it in a heartbeat. Y/n soon realized that breaking the law from time to time
was quite fun but found herself only doing it in spurts; becoming afraid that
one day she would slip up and get caught.
My 10 Favorite Book to Movie Adaptions: Go watch them!
Some of these movies well known and loved but the other half are so incredibly under-rated and I just have to give them a shout out cause THEY DESERVE THE HYPE!
1. Treasure Island (1990)
Christian Bale as Jim Hawkins and Charlton Heston (and Christopher Lee for a bit). Need I say more? Nobody loves the book more than I do and this movie is fuckin incredible, exciting, gritty, and VERY close to it’s source material.
2. The Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (The Royal Shakespeare Company)
Eight and a half hours of the best theater you will ever see. End of story. Nothing will ever come close. Holy shit.
YES THEY FILMED IT, IT’S ON DVD, THANK GOD!
3. The Great Gatsby (2000)
Paul Rudd! Paul Rudd makes this movie. He plays Nick who is the narrator in the book and in this movie you get watch him become more and more disgusted with the culture that he’s jumped into.
This is not a very romantic movie. It’s gritty, and a bit bleak. You see the underside of the glossy Jazz Age. Bravo.
4. Peter Pan (2003)
NO ONE TALKS ABOUT THIS FUKCIN MOVIE! DEAR GOD IT’S THE BEST LIVE ACTION CHILDREN’S MOVIE EVER MADE!
Everyone I know who’s seen this movie adores it. Because it’s perfect. It’s got Jason Isaacs as Captain Hook! You can’t get more bad ass.
5. & 6. Richard Sharpe (Sean Bean) and Horatio Hornblower (Ioan Gruffudd)
Both of these books series were based during the Napoleonic Wars; Richard Sharpe in the British Army and Horatio Hornblower in the British Navy. But what is so special about these two series is that they were filmed during the 90s by the BBC so they are great fun to watch as a pair.
(added bonus: Sean Bean is an action hero in 14+ stories and lives)
7. Pride and Prejudice (2005)
This movie owns my soul.
8. Great Expectations (1999)
If you don’t like the book you won’t like this movie either.
BUT if you loved the book like I do you have to watch this. Ioan is a great fit for Pip because no matter how dumb or selfish Pip’s decisions are you can’t help but feel sorry for him and his fall from grace at the end of the story is super emotionally visceral. Thanks Ioan!
10. The Count of Monte Cristo (2002)
Even though the story has to be paired down a ton since the book is so fucking LONG it’s still a great adaption. All the drama and sword fighting and intrigue that I like about the story is still there.
You all should know by now that I cannot resist the urge to make Damian the head instigate of any shenanigans, he is my favorite little troublemaker and the star of today’s fic. Though, Titus might give him a run for his money. Enjoy!
Damian locked his eyes with the large, warm, black ones
belonging to one of his closest friends. His companion held his gaze patiently
waiting for the boy to begin.
“Titus, I must impress upon you the serious nature of this
mission.” Damian started, keeping his tone serious, “If I asked anyone else
they would surely fall victim to a double cross for a foolish photo of me in a
compromising situation.” Damian grimaced thinking of the many times he’d tried
to pull a fast one on his siblings only to have his assistant turn on him, “You
are the only one I can trust with this, boy. Do you think you can do it?”
Titus blinked and then licked Damian’s cheek, his wet,
velvety tongue tickling the boy’s face. Damian resisted the urge to smile and
instead nodded his head. “Very well, let’s get started.”
He clipped a small camera to the dog’s collar, black and
thin enough to be easily mistaken for hair then stepped back to check his
tablet. He could see himself on the screen, albeit from a shorter height.
The two slipped through the manor silently making their way
through the halls. They stopped in the hallway outside the foyer. The dog leaned
against his side as he stopped, head ducking under Damian’s hand.
He scratched Titus’s ears, hand pressing into the warm soft
fur while he peered around the corner. Today would be a bit of revenge for
everything, all the unwanted coddling, the surprise photos, and the team ups
his many family members often used to get him to ‘act his age’.
The front door rattled for a moment before Damian heard the
sound of a key being inserted into the lock. He waited as the lock clicked open
and the doorknob began to move again, this time turning unhindered.
“You know what to do.” Damian said and scratched Titus’s
left ear twice in quick succession and the dog darted forward at the same time
as the door swung open.
“Hey there, Titus .” Jason’s voice was warm as the door
clicked shut behind him. “What’s up?”
Damian’s eyes locked on his tablet as he moved away from the
foyer. He made his way to the living room as he watched Jason struggling at the
front door. He had bags in both hands and was trying to move them all to his
left. Titus was making it difficult for him, jumping up and pawing at his
chest. Jason managed to hook the extra bags around his arm and reach out to pet
The dog let him for a moment before jumping back with a
happy bark, back stepping a foot or so to allow Jason a few steps into the room
before he did it again, jumping forward to beg for attention. Jason chuckled
and gave him another good scratch on the head.
“Your pretty demanding today, where’s the Demon Brat?”
