Author's Note: This fic came to me after I heard, then saw the video for, the A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera duet "Say Something". It struck something in me and... well, this story is what came of it. If you haven't heard it, it can be found here: Say Something.

Warning: I never thought I would write one of these, but it turns out I was wrong. Not only is this a sonfic (something I'm not a big fan of) but it is also a Death!Fic.

Full Name: Maya Emily Mustang
Nickname(s)/Title(s): First Daughter
Date of Birth: December 22nd, 1919
» She began school at age 5, her parents enrolling her in a simple grammar school. Since Ishval was still in the stage of early rebuilding, the school was small and mostly Ishvalan dominated, leaving a lot of discrimination against Maya in the beginning of her schooling that she eventually overcomes. The school was very basic, but Maya was able to study further in her love for reading at home, also picking up knowledge from her parents.
» Once she moves to Central at age 12 when Roy becomes Fuhrer, she is enrolled in an elite private academy primarily for her new high status as First Daughter; however she is also fairly intelligent. The school, Kingston Academy, is for grades 6-12, and Maya is in her junior year (year 11) in the present time of her story.

"The burn patterns on the victims suggest that Firefly is doing his work up close and personal for once. And unlike Gotham PD I was able to reconstruct their fingerprints digitally, sending you addresses."
Batman looked at the list, "Targeting the rich who live in New Babylon Towers I see...he's hunting them down and then dumping them in the East End."
"New Babylon Towers huh? What happened to the old one?"
"Destroyed by those living in it when the Clench hit."
Batman nodded, "How is Nightwing?"
Joseph looked over to where Alfred was fussing over Nightwing's injuries from taking on Firefly.

He just wouldn’t stop touching her.
The first week of being back, she hadn’t noticed – she’d been all over him too.
But for him, it had just continued - and gotten worse.
Placing his hands on her shoulders, holding her elbow, touching her back, brushing fingers with her when their hands weren’t even nearly in the same vicinity, crowding her as they walked and bumping into her too often for someone as spatially aware as he was….
It seemed there wasn’t a moment of their new life together where some part of him wasn’t in contact with some part of her.
It was getting excessive.
Once, as they were walking through the village under the orange sunlight, she felt her husband grab her wrist. She was more than happy to hold hands with him, but his hand was never static long enough for it to be a proper handhold.
He brushed her fingers, stroked her palm, traced her knuckles, circled her wrist, caressed her arm, and went back down to start the proces

The Joker Queen: Chapter 1The sun was still bright, casting a diffused light through the green treetops as she rested her arm across her forehead to shade her eyes. Her feet dangled into the crystal-clear, gently flowing brook, and the wind ruffled her hair. She was holding the hand of a teenage boy in her left hand; his patched pants were rolled up so his pale feet could hang in the stream next to hers. He squinted up at the sky and watched the clouds drift by with his alert red eyes. He rolled over and grinned at her suddenly, and she broke into an equal grin that twinkled her grass-green eyes.The Joker Queen: Chapter 13 years ago in Romance More Like This

Nightwing: The Animated Series Episode 1He had always lived in the knight's shadow. But, who could blame him? The very reason behind his being was that he was a shadow, which encompassed all and cast a shadow over everything below. But still, he wondered. His master used fear as his ultimate weapon, and appropriately, his symbol was a creature of the night; the very amplifier of fear, the substance of nightmares, the mask which hides the monsters that prowl through this sinful city. But, his student's symbol was one that summoned neither fear nor respect from his enemies or his allies. A helper at best, a source of cruel laughter at worst. No matter how much one tries to run, no matter how swift they think they are, they can never escape their shadow...Nightwing: The Animated Series Episode 12 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Category: Hurt/Comfort, Family
Rating: T for Jay's mouth.
Summary: Dick chose Damian as his Robin, and Tim feels hurt. Tim has a run-in with Jason and finally can empathize with why Jason calls him "Replacement."
A/N: My take on Timmy's feelings about Damian and Dick as the Dynamic Duo. And I added some cute moments between Jay and Tim. This is before Tim became Red Robin.
Timothy Drake-Wayne was miserable. This feeling wasn't uncommon for him, but usually he could keep it at bay. Now, the emotion hit him full force, overwhelming him. Never had he felt so unwanted and alone. Someone else had become Robin. Batman's partner was no longer Tim Drake. Perhaps it was because Batman was no longer Bruce Wayne, or perhaps it was because the new Robin was Bruce Wayne's biological son. No matter what it was, Tim wasn't <

While trying to find Hush, Batman learns that the Scarecrow is back, and Hush is in an alliance with him. Scarecrow has a plan to strike terror into Gotham. Batman must uncover his plan and stop him before it's too late.
EDIT: Early on in the story, Hush takes over Bruce Wayne's life, so both Wayne and Batman must live in hiding. Batman also learns that Scarecrow's plan is to release swarms of roaches filled with fear toxin into Gotham. Hush is going aalong with it so the world will think Bruce Wayne is responsible.
Batman also has run-ins with Firefly and Prometheus, who are also working with Scarecrow.
While tracking Scarecrow, Batman also finds Killer Croc, cowering in terror at anything around him. This is clearly Scarecrow's revenge for their encounter on Arkahm Island.

Clark is the perfect picture of doting fatherhood. He gathers his son Conner up in a tight hug and presses a series of smacking kisses to the top of the giggling boy's head. The bespectacled man doesn't even bat an eye as his rambunctious two-year-old curls his chubby fingers into a tiny fist and beats them against his father's cheek with a cry of "wan' cupcake" ringing in the air.
In contrast, Bruce, while no less of a loving father, is more restrained with his young son. He crouches down so that Tim can wind his arms around his neck and then stands with one hand pressed to his son's back to keep him from falling. "You look tired, Tim," he murmurs as he catches his son sticking his thumb into his mouth as he cuddles close to his father and rests his head on his shoulder.
Tim nods his little head and then yawns widely as he rubs at his face with one hand. "Sleepy," he murmurs in drowsy agreement

"Now take a step forward and " Damian complied- Dick's movement's matching his. "It's easy, see?"
Damian nodded, lost at watching his and Dick's feet shuffle back in forth in tune to the music which played at the far end of the room. "Damian, you don't dance looking at your feet the whole time; It's not very romantic."
