Batfamily Costume Contest

In the spirit of Halloween I did a thing. I took ideas from a bunch of different timelines and storylines, so everyone is pretty much in the same place for my story even if that’s not exactly how it is in the regular comics. Enjoy!

“Dami, you can’t hide up there all day. At some point you’re gonna have to show us your costume!”, Dick Grayson yelled up the stairs to his youngest and most stubborn brother. He had spent the last ten minutes at the base if the staircase trying to convince him to come downstairs and show off his Halloween costume to no avail.

“Grayson, I would sooner be strung up by my thumbs over a boiling vat of acid”, Damian snapped from upstairs. He knew he shouldn’t have permitted his extravagant brother to select his costume, but it was too late to find a replacement now. He settled for waiting in his room until the night was over, as the zipper had gotten stuck and he couldn’t get out of it without assistance.

Damian normally would never be caught dead in something as humiliating as a Halloween costume, but he wanted to win the Wayne family costume contest as much as everyone else did this year. He just didn’t think Grayson would choose to force him into this one.

“Damian, c'mon! Tim and Jason are going to be here any minute and you need to be here for when everyone else comes. Remember Colin? He’s going to be bored and all alone without you.” When no answer was heard from upstairs Dick finally threw his hands up in the air, having tried everything.

At that moment Jason Todd and Tim Drake conveniently walked in, Dick not having heard the front door open over all of his yelling. The two brothers entered the room, both in their Halloween costumes.

The bakery was almost entirely hidden away, and when Adam entered there was absolutely no one inside though it was warm enough to get out of the rain.

The man behind the counter came out and looked surprised to see him inside.

Adam orders a coffee and the man starts to berate him for getting the floor wet, telling him if he isn’t going to buy more he should leave because he’s making a mess.

Adam doesn’t leave on purpose, ordering a pumpkin spice cupcake which turns out to be the best thing he’s ever wrapped his mouth around.

He buys two more as another man comes inside, yelling at the man behind the counter who he learns is named Elias.

The second man introduces himself as Gabriel, the owner, and gives Adam a free box of cupcakes and telling him to come back any time he likes.

So he does, again and again, Elias always seeming to be the only one behind the counter though the glares turn into smiles and his pumpkin spice cupcake is always waiting for him now.

He starts to notice the constant disappearances throughout Elias’s workday, his other brothers taking over when he leaves, which makes Adam follow him into the bathroom discovering Elias pleasuring himself in the stall.

One thing leads to another and Adam is on his knees worshiping at that beautiful cock, and when he leaves with a quick, “You’re welcome,” he expects to see Elias the next time he returns.

Elias disappears from the register completely.
