when you’re in a really tiny fandom/ship a really rare pairing and have already read the entire ao3 tag multiple times so you have to start looking for fics on other websites with lower standards of quality:
Friend: “Do you ever just…love something so much that you hate it? Like, you love it but it causes you so much emotional distress that you almost feel like it’s bad for you? But, you also don’t want to stop it?”

The list goes on…
Friend: “SAME., I just realized this makes it sound like we’re talking about drugs, but I really just mean the exact same thing you did.”
i like to image there being a scenario in which ALL of the batkids need to go to a wayne charity event – like the batkids being the ones Bruce has adopted. so tim jason cass and dick all have to go and maybe barbara has to too because her dads going and no one wants to go to those shit
and theyre all bitching in the batcave and steph just flounces past like ‘not an orphan dont have to go sorry sucks to suck’ and jasons just like hold on give me fifteen minutes before you bail
so he leaves and tim just spends the whole time being like ‘you know if you maybe wanted to go you could come still i mean it wouldnt be a problem but if you like sometime wanted to see what one of them was like i could like
show you and we could maybe i dont know theyre really stupid but…’ and while hes round-about asshatting his way towards asking her jason comes back, throws a dress at steph and just says ‘you’re coming, you’re my date’ and storms back upstairs to get ready
I can see Jason and Stephanie getting on reasonably well and occasionally going out and talking shop. Well once it gets the rest of the family good and nervous they have a few words with Jason before he and Steph hit a dive bar and keep their ears to the ground about an up and coming drug trafficker.
“Jason, you’re late and you look like 10 miles of bad road.”
“Yeah, there was traffic. Now whats the point blue bird?”
“I’ve let Tim and Damian decide which building we’re dropping you off of after Cass beats you unconscious when you inevitably screw up whatever this is with Steph.”
Anonymous asked you: Steph and Dami bonding because they both kind of have the hots for Jason. So they’re loitering in the cave, watching him train, and trying to be stealthy. But they’re both onto each other, and Jason’s onto them.
It was cute at first, to have the younger two linger in the training area when he entered after their sessions were over. Steph and Damian would be exhausted after training with one another, and both would be in desperate need of a shower. They’d make themselves comfortable on the benches, eyes locked onto Jason as he used the equipment.
Because they’d be the ones to climb the tallest building in Gotham and scream “Fuck You!” at the sky and the city, then jump just because they enjoy the feeling when they fall. They love their jobs and they’d sit on a roof and sing as loud as possible to see who they wake up. Because they understand each other.
