Do you really think now is the best time for a canoeing trip?
Of course. I know how important it is to you. That's why we constantly mention our plans to go canoeing. Not a day goes by that we don't curse the newest villain for trying to destroy the town because it delays our chance to canoe.
When have we ever talked about canoeing?
This might be our only chance to go off and do this before Gideon regroups and attacks me again.
Was the canoeing trip even my idea?
Let's go make one last memory as mother and son before the forces of evil attack again and the show remembers that I'm the main character.
Oh! This is a plot dodging trip.
Obviously. And it would work a lot better if you played along.
You're still bringing your gun in case Gideon decides to poof in and attack us on the river though, right?
This was a request for @omg-gilliankazoo-me made.. a while ago.. Sorry it took so long and also ended up being longer then intended… Anyway enjoy!

much admiration that he gave her.

smiling back at her.

You toss a raised eyebrow at Bruce who
shakes his head slightly embarrassed.
“Come on then,” you say with a smile.
“I’m telling you she’s up to
something,” Dick says angrily.
“So, she just had Bruce fly us all to
the Bahamas, rent out the top floor of an extremely popular hotel and gave us
our own separate rooms, that we asked for by the way, so that she could what?
Relax us to death?” Jason quips.
“It’s not like bad guys have never had
overly complicated plans before,” Tim adds.
“I just don’t understand why you guys
can’t be happy the Bruce has found a normal woman for once and let them be.”
“Because nothing that happens to him is
ever normal, Jason!” Dicks says exasperatedly. “Who does he talk to outside of
us or the league? No one. He goes to work in the morning as Bruce Wayne, he
comes home at Night and is the Batman, there’s no in between, no down time.
Then ten months ago, this woman just shows up and they’re dating and he gives
her a job at the company?”
“It’s not like he’s never dated before
or given someone a job,” Jason states with a raised eyebrow.
“Yeah, but all of them had a history,”
Tim adds in as he pulls his laptop from his bag.
“She’s a ghost Jason, no past, no
present, and if we have anything to say about it, no future.”
“Not even a fake I.D.?” Jason asks
standing behind Tim has he watches him pull up the woman’s file on the screen.
“Just a name and a birthdate,” Tim says
“Bruce would know all of this then,”
Jason states, “Why wouldn’t he tell us at least so we could be on our guard.”
“Blackmail, maybe she has something
“You do know we are talking about Batman, right?”
“Like I said earlier, brainwashing”
“The kid too?” Jason questions.
“It would explain why he warmed up to
her so fast.”
“Guys,” Dick states looking at his
brothers, “We’ve got to break whatever hold she’s got on them and fast before
she carries out whatever her plan is. Then when they’re free we put her in jail
just like we do with all of the other bad guys.”
“Shouldn’t we question her? Figure out
what it is she actually wants?”
“Yeah, I mean that was part of the
arrest her thing, but I figured that was implied.”
There was an awkward silence as the
boys looked at each other.
“Hey guys,” a voice called from the
door a long with a knock.
Dick went to open the door and found
the woman there standing with Damian looking expectantly at him.
“We were going to go explore the hotel,
any of you want to come?” She asked with a wide smile. Her tone seemed happy,
and the crinkle of the skin around her eyes made the question seem genuine, but
Dick couldn’t help but think of all of the women who’d come before and how real
“We are actually on our way back to our
rooms, jet leg,” he said curtly. He felt his heart stir slightly when the smile
dropped off her face in disappointment and squashed it down inside of him.
Damian looked at him skeptically with a
raised eyebrow and a questioning cock of his head, “So weak that you couldn’t
handle a quick flight Grayson? We didn’t even change time zones.”
“Yeah well, this was short notice and I
didn’t sleep well on the plane,” Dick adverted his eyes from the pair and
though he could tell that he was being absurdly childish, he couldn’t stop his annoyed
“All right then,” she said with a nice
tone and a pleasant smile but none of the warmth reached her eyes. “It’s just
me and Damian then.”
Dick watched as the pair walked down to
the hall toward the elevator and then closed the door behind him.
“You could stop being such an asshole
to her, if she’s this evil genius you claim she is, you’re going to let her
know that you are on to her.” Jason comments from the bed looking over the
files on Tim’s laptop.
“I can’t help it.” Dick says plopping down
on one of the chairs close to the bed, “it just comes out when I talk to her.”
“We should get some data on her,” Tim
says only half listening to the conversation as he fiddled with a small camera
that he pulled out of his backpack. “We don’t know anything about her and
fighting blindly isn’t smart, we should follow her while she’s walking around
Jason and Dick lock eyes with each
other and nod in agreement.
“Let’s go do some recon then.”
It wasn’t hard to tell that the boys
were following you. You’d caught Jason’s eye not too long after you entered the
dining room and you’d probably would have shrugged him off if he had broken eye
contact with you like he normally does, instead his overly friendly gaze caused
you to be more aware of your surroundings. After that your keen eyes caught
sight of Tim at a corner table in the hotels dining room enjoying whatever food
was placed in front of him rather inconspicuously. As you and Damian moved to
check out the gift shop, you’d spotted Dick halfheartedly flirting with the
bartender not too far away from the store.
“What do you think?” Damian questioned
as he turned to show you the pair of sun glasses that he had slipped on.
“Very practical,” you answered
absentmindedly after glassing at the wide black frames on the small boy’s head.
Noticing your lack of attention, he
turned to gaze at his brother who was pretending to be flattered by the bartender’s
“They think you’re some kind of evil
mastermind,” he comments nonchalantly as he placed the frames back on the
stand, deciding he didn’t like the feel of the cheap plastic.
“They said that?” you ask worriedly.
“More or less,” he said with a shrug,
“I read their lips on the plane, they thought you were going to try and kidnap
us, I’m sure they still have the same concerns.”
“Why would they think that?”
“Father doesn’t have the very best
taste in women. And besides they aren’t completely wrong about you, are they?”
You meet the green eyes of the small
boy and roll yours with a sight, “I’m not saying they don’t have a need to be
wary I just thought that your father would have told them about me already.”
“We aren’t exactly open with our
secrets,” he says fiddling with a beige pair of glasses that caught his eyes.
“How would you tell them that your significant other is a former assassin and
is not going to try and kill you.”
“No wonder they hate me so much,” you
say with a sigh. “I specifically asked Bruce if they knew about me.”
“That’s a question open to several
interpretative answers,” Damian said looking at himself in the shop mirror
before shaking his head and placing the pair of glasses back.
“I’ll be back,” you mumble.
“Hey, how much are these?” Damian asks
the shop owner who rolls his large weary eyes at the demanding boy.
“They’re imported,” he responds
gruffly, “So they cost more, than the others.
The boy waves you away with a hand as
he continues to pursue the selection of the shop.
Making your way over to the bar where
Dick sat you take a seat next to him.
“So, are you here with your family?”
asks the brunette bartender asks Dick ignoring your presence.
“Yes,” he says abstinently as he sharp
blue eyes meet yours skeptically.
“Can I have a beer please?” you ask
sweetly trying to get her attention.
“Yeah, sure,” she says not meeting your
gaze. “How long are you here for?”
“Oh, only a week,” you say
interrupting, “I would have planned for longer but we have better service back
home and I didn’t know how long I could deal with rude bartenders.”
She cuts her amber eyes at you ready
with a snarky comment but your words finally register in her mind.
“Oh! Is this your mo-“
“No,” Dick interjects turning his body
to face you entirely, “Can you bring me a beer too, please?”
The two of you sit in silence for a
moment but when she comes back with two glasses and two bottles of whatever the
house beer was. You push aside the glass and take swig from the bottle and put
it back on the bar.
Dick does the same watching you warily.
“We need to talk,” you say watching as
he places the bottle down.
“Going to confess?” he questions with a
“Maybe,” you say looking around the
room catching the curious eyes of his other brothers who snapped their
attention away from you when you caught them staring. “I’m just worried my
confession won’t be as devious as you suspect it of being. Kidnapping isn’t a specialty
of mine, after all.”
“You were listening?”
“No, but a little bird told me.”
“Damian,” he says with a roll of his
“Get your brothers and come to our room
after you guys are all done down here,” you say patting him on the
shoulder. “I’ll answer any questions you
guys have, okay?”
His blue orbs meet yours and with a
sigh he nods his head before taking another swig of his drink.
You smile and pick up your bottle and
walk back to the gift shop where you left Damian.
Dick watches with a frown as he watches
Damian almost perk up at your return and how he follows you the way a hatchling
would follow the mother duck.
“Get anything?” Jason questions as he
comes up to Dick’s side Tim coming up behind him.
“Wants us to meet her in Bruce’s room,
said that she’d tell us everything.”
“Should we go?”
“I don’t think it’s a trap,” Tim says,
“There doesn’t seem to be anything particularly suspicious about the resort, nothing
delivered out of the ordinary, normal population, and normal crime rate.”
“So, safe,” Jason says with a shrug. “At
least here on the resort. If it’s just her in the room we can take her.”
Dick downs the rest of his drink before
standing up, “Let’s go then.”
Bruce took a sip of his drink as he sat against the couch
with crossed legs flipping through the pages of a book that he’d brought with
him. Next to him Damian did the same.
Their relaxed attitude completely at odds with the tense posture of the
boys who sat with you at the small dining table.
The table around you was
silent and you bit your lip in hesitation. You let out a sigh and rubbed the back of your
neck nervously and then took a sip of the margarita placed in front of you.
“When Damian was five, I left the League of Assassins,” you
state looking in each pair of blue eyes.
You watched as they digested your words and the idea ran
through their minds.
“W-what?” Dick speaks up first. He’d certainly suspected
that you were who you said you were but he wasn’t expecting you to be so…forthcoming
with the information.
“You all enjoy saving people, don’t you?” You question.
The boys don’t say anything just stare at you still stunned.
“Even if you get a little lost on the way,” you say eyes lingering
on Jason’s form. “Bruce has instilled in you the want to help people, to
protect people. And if you wanted to stop being your ‘other selves’, I’m sure you’d still find ways to help people,
because it’s a part of who you are now.”
You swish the drink in your glass around, watching the ice
melt slowly, “It was like that for me when I was a part of the league. Except,
I couldn’t stop killing people. There wasn’t a moment in my mind when I wasn’t
consumed by rage, or the urge to get my next target. That kind of thing wares
on a person, even if they don’t realize it.”
“Well, you did, stop I mean,” Tim starts, “Seeing as you’re
here now. How did that happen?”
You take a sip of your drink, “I was six when an assassin
from the league was hired to kill my parents and they took me as a bonus. I was
13 when Bruce left the League. I never got a chance to meet him or talk with
him, but I was old enough to understand that there was a hole that he left
there. And that it gave Ra’s al Ghul a rage that we hadn’t really seen before.
“I-we, trained hard. Kids like me were told that we were
given a second chance at life at the whim of the League and that we shouldn’t
even dare to think about being defiant the way that Bruce had been, and we
didn’t, we weren’t. We wanted to do things that made the people who we thought
of as our parents happy. If that meant killing an old man or a baby we did it.
And it when on like this for years,
“I was 16 when I met Talia for the first time. We were,
close, as close as the two of us could be. When she had Damian, I was there.
And for the first years of his life I cared for him. She was happy with the
arrangement, since mothering never came naturally to Talia, and I got to have a
small family that was all my own. When He was four and just climbed his first mountain.
Both she and Ra’s were ecstatic about it and I watched as they put him through
the same training that I was forced to do. And he progressed fast. Every day I
watched him grow and get stronger, harder, deadlier.
“When he was away from me, I worried about what type of
danger he was in, what was she teaching him, how was she corrupting him.”
“You loved him,” Dick states watching as the boy’s green
eyes flash over to his momentarily.
“I adored him,” you correct with a smile on your face. “And
I thought that I would eventually be able to let go like that but I couldn’t.
The more attached that I got to Damian the more I realized that I couldn’t
stand what I was doing. Killing people didn’t make me happy anymore, it just
made me worry for him,
“When I asked Ra’s if I could detach myself from the mission
side of the organization he agreed. I was so happy, all I would have to do was
one last mission, and I could finally have some sort of peace.”
“What was the mission?” Jason questions.
“Murder a diplomat’s daughter, it was for revenge. The man
had crossed the League in some way and I had to take care of it. It was nothing
I hadn’t done before, so I thought it would be easy. Of course, it wasn’t. When
I snuck into her room and saw that she wasn’t any older than Damian, I couldn’t
do it, and so I ran and I never went back
“I travelled for a couple of years’ land made money doing
jobs as a mercenary as well as I could eventually Talia came for me and after
what was supposed to be a fight to the death ended in a stalemate, she told me
that she’d left Damian, in the care of his father and I couldn’t help but want
to find him and see what type of heathen’s care she’d left Damian in.”
“And you found Bruce.”
“Exactly, and then I told him my story. He allowed me to
work for him and gave me a new name.”
“That can’t be all there is too it, how did you convince him
to help you?”
“Damian helped, the rest is private,” you say with a teasing
smile on your face causing the faces of the boys to flush in embarrassment and
elicit a chuckle from Bruce.
“I can’t tell you everything I’ve done, or who I’ve hurt, I
don’t want to go back to that place, but I hope you know I want nothing more than
to protect not just Damian, but you guys too,” you end with a warm smile on
“Also,” Bruce interjects, “If she was an evil mastermind you
all did a horrible job at letting her know that you were on to her. That whispering you were doing on the plane,
“It was a small space, the sound probably bounced off the
walls, we were perfectly stealthy,” Dick rationalizes.
“I told you that you both were being ridiculous,” Jason says
pushing himself away from the table, standing up and stretching.
“It’s not like she wasn’t an assassin though, she’s just the
good kind,” Tim says with a shrug and then turns his attention to you, “Sorry
we thought you were going to kidnap us.”
“It’s no big deal, I’m happy that you all are so proactive.
There so much I could teach you all,” you saw swooning slightly, “Non-lethal
things of course.”
“Sorry for thinking you were an evil monster,” Dick said
sheepishly. “Hopefully we can get to know each other while on vacation.”
“Weeelll,” you start your fingers fidgeting slightly, “Technically
I’m the only one on vacation.”
“What?” Jason questioned suddenly reengaging in the conversation.
“You didn’t actually think I was going to leave Gotham for a
week unprotected without a reason, did you?” Bruce interjected.
“So, this,” Dick motioned
to the room, “Is part of the mission,”
“If it makes you feel better, I picked out the hotels and
the rooms, wanted you to be comfortable when you come back to rest,” you say
with a sweet smile.
“Ugh,” the three boys groan in unison.
“Honestly, you all were so distracted you didn’t notice the
obvious recon that Ummi and I were
doing earlier,” Damian says haughtily.
You flush at the term of endearment, but only Bruce seems to
notice as he glances over at you with a smile.
“What recon?” Tim questions skeptically, glancing between
the two of you.
“The man at the gift shop is a smuggler,” you say matter of factly,
“We believe that he is smuggling ingredients into the island for Scarecrow and
a new fear toxin he’s working on.”
“What?!” They question.
“And the woman who was working the bar, is the daughter of
one of the chemists act the facility,” Damian said bringing up an image on his
phone showing the bartender hugging a woman in a lab coat.
“Why, didn’t you say anything?” Tim questioned Bruce.
“A house divided can’t stand,” Bruce said simply, “You all were
so worried about what she might do you didn’t pay attention to your
surroundings. There is already a chance that some of us may accidently get
exposed to the toxin, so I brought you as back up. But having you distracted by
the fear that you all built up would have made the situation almost impossible
The boys look away slightly ashamed.
“Well then,” you say finishing off your drink. “You boys
better get ready, the suns about to set and the quicker you wrap this up the
quicker we can have an actual vacation.”
Dick looks at you with a smirk, “Let’s get started then.”
The only ‘redemption’ I’d ever want for Daniel is for him to have to do an infinite number of community service hours and be forced to work back at the camp with David and be annoyed the entire time because he actually really hates children and they make his life hell because he’d deserve it.
Edit because I should have put this stuff in the post and not the tag: storm/weather witch Michael who creates lightning to strike people down or a tornado to wreck the streets behind them to help lose the cops
Animal witch Ryan who lets loose animals in the zoo and convinces them to tear apart someone once he’s done with them, it’s an easy way to dispose bodies
Jack who uses her magic to heal them just enough until they can get to Caleb. She’s a white witch and her magic is suppose to be used for good and it is. It helps Geoff when he’s stressed over a heist and Ryan when he can’t sleep. It help Michael control his magic when he’s pissed and keeps Gavin from fainting when he has to use his magic. It helps Jeremy keep from getting too anxious about a job especially in the beginning and herself when things get to much and she needs to keep herself sane and calm. It helps them all from going mad when someone gets captured.
time/fire witch Geoff who turns back time when something goes horribly horribly wrong and one of them dies and lights shit up when need be
Necromancy Jeremy who gets ghost to help distract people and bring people just long enough when he’s not finished with them. Jeremy can only bring somebody back for so long before it drains him and they aren’t fully back to themselves they’re, well, a zombie which is why Geoff has to turn back time instead of Jeremy just bringing them back.
Blood witch Gavin who hates his magic and only uses it when he has to
Garden witch Mica who makes vines grow from the ground to tie people up
Space witch Trevor who creates black holes and stars just hot enough to burn a person when Geoff isn’t around to do it
Eclectic Witch Lindsay who is basically the crew Jack of all trades
Creation witch Matt who makes new weapons and vehicles for the crew
and divination witch steffie who they all go to before a job to see how it goes
Another edit because something was pointed out by @whatdoyewant :
ryan using mangy cats and dogs, wild forgotten things that prowl the alleys and scrap for scraps. who are starved and half crazed and more wild than any zoo animal. zoos are precious conservation programs with rare species that are well taken care of, and he wouldn’t touch them. He’d summon the cats left behind, the dogs who ran from fighting rings and abuse, the rats that fill every crack of every dilapidated apartment and every sewer.

They were walking around a children’s park, his small hand
tucked securely within his grandmother’s firm grip. She was smiling down at him, wrinkles drawn
back like a curtain to frame eyes lit with amusement.
“I was wondering what makes a grown-up,” he replied with all
the seriousness that his 4 years could muster.
“Oh, I see. And what
have you decided?”
Rolf tapped his mouth with a finger, a gesture he’d learned
from imitating his father, who in turn had learned from imitating his father. Tina smiled.
“Well, you’re a grown-up, right Nanna?” He waited for her
nod. “And you see this gravel we’re
walking on?” Another nod. “When you walk, the gravel goes crunch. But when I walk, it doesn’t make any
sound. So, I think you’re a grown-up
when you can make the gravel crunch.” He
beamed up at her, happy to have formulated a conclusion and solve that little
mystery of life.
Tina laughed and scooped up her grandson, who was more than
happy to cuddle up to her.
“What a clever boy!
Come on, let’s go home so you can write that down in your research
notebook, I’m sure your grandfather would love to hear your theory.”
Thrilled at the prospect, Rolf hugged her tightly and began
to hum as she slowly made her way out of the park and towards home.
“Guardian, I have reports of our scouts running amok of some unknown Vex programming appearing all over Venus. Flashy bastards, but don’t let your guard down. I’ve already had too many half-cocked guardians fall trying to get a few trophies for themselves.
I need you on the ground to see what they’re up to and cut off the flow from where they’re coming from. Oh and if you have the time, could you bring some of them back mostly intact?
For, uh *cough* study. Of course.”
-Cayde-6, Hunter Vanguard
At first glance a seemingly a new programming, they are much older than any Vex outside the Black Garden. They have been found only on Venus, primarily around the Ishtar Archives trying (unsuccessfully) to gain access.
