When Traci first joins the Team, she finds Jaime really cool and likes talking to him and decides to ask him out, even tho her feelings for him aren’t even close to romantic, it’s more like a puppy crush and she wants to see where it goes and if it’ll develop into something more. Jaime, being a sweet cinnamon roll, is very flattered and agrees bc he finds Traci equally cool even tho he can’t help but think about how this might affect his friendship with Bart, like “What if he gets jealous or feels like a third wheel? I don’t want him left out”, you know the standard stuff when people first start dating
Fast forward to when they tell the Team, and among the congratulations Jaime can’t help but notice how Bart seems a little down and how his “Wow that’s totally crash!” seemed a little too enthusiastic to be real (bc after these many years Jaime and Bart are at least besties and can read each other like a book, Jaime especially bc of Scarab), so he takes Bart to the side and asks if anything’s wrong and if there’s anything he can do to help and Bart, all cheery, is all, “Dude c’mon nothing’s wrong I’m just a little bummed I’m not the only person you’ll be sharing Chicken Wheezies with anymore” and Jaime easily believes that even tho Scarab is a golden lie detector (but Jaime made Scarab promise not to scan his friends bc that’s just creepy)
For Day 6- Death of the Batfam Halloween Content War! Tim isn’t a big fan of the obligatory October death jokes. Special Guests Conner Kent/Kon-el, Bart Allen, Garfield Logan, Raven, and Rose Wilson! Rating: PG Gen Words: 2,202 AO3
Life was tough. Living as all the people you’re
close to die? Even tougher. So when Halloween rolls around and the inevitable
zombie jokes start rolling out from those who have came back Tim gets rather
uncomfortable. It’s not that he begrudges them the ability to joke, if anything
it’s a healthier-than-what-most-of-his-family-does coping mechanism.
It starts October first and Tim is glad that it’s at
least Jason, who’s jokes about dying and being undead are a regular occurrence over
Tim’s comms. He’s laying on his back on a couch in the manor’s living room when
the older boy walks in. Jason takes one look at Tim and the bruise like circles
under his eyes and grimaces. “Wow Replacement. You look about as good as me, which
is to say corpselike.”
Tim frowns up at him as Jason smiles and continues
to tease him. “I know you’re still trying to fill my pixie boots but being dead
inside is enough, you don’t have to look the part too.”
Glaring Tim sat up, skootching back towards the
armrest as Jason flops down by his feet. “Must you?” Tim asked acidly.
“Uh, duh? It’s my month man! October is prime time
for the undead like me! I get to crack as many jokes as I want and no one can
Tim frowned and turned to half watch the crappy
horror movie that Jason had flipped on.
