I greatly enjoyed your performance in Baltimore, as usual your performance of Gotham Shadows was the high light of the show. Though as usual, Grayson's antics were ridiculous at best and just down right nerve grating at worse. He fawns too much over you, It's like watching him try catch starlight. Does he always reach for what he can never truly have?


I have missed you my sweet Songbird





Tim frowned as he read the message board. He had sent him another email. He copied the message and then deleted it from the page. Then Tim opened up a locked, hidden, folder and pasted it along the other messages there.



Your duet with the blond-haired girl was quite lovely. Perhaps you should consider putting it into the show instead of keeping it in the practice room.





I was surprised you decided to buy the blue suit last Wednesday. The charcoal pinstripe was much more becoming on you.





Todd is walking a very thin line my Songbird. Tell him to keep his hands to himself .






Tim looked over the messages and ran a tired hand over his face. They so didn't need this right now. They had only just started to get over Deathstroke's attack on Dick three months ago. Underneath the smiles and joking around, they were still feeling on edge, raw and vulnerable. They didn't need Ra's Al Ghul taking an interest in them too.


At first Ra's was content to just leave messages about the concerts and then slowly adding messages about things Tim did in private, what happened in practice, going shopping, the family having dinner, letting Tim know that he was being watched, but recently he had been commenting on his relationship with the others, mostly Jason and Dick.


Tim worried his lower lip, he hadn't responded to any of the messages of course – made certain that there was no trace of them for the others to find, and he definitely didn't mention them to Dick and the others – not even Alfred could be told. As dangerous as Deathstroke was, Ra's Al Ghul an entity all to himself. He knew Ra's wouldn't just stick to sending messages and voicing disappointment on the suits that Tim bought. So the question became how did he protect his family against this? Was he to take Dick's path? Should he give himself up to the Demon's Head? Tim shuddered as an image of a bed with silk sheets sprang to mind and he knew one night would never be enough for Ra's. Then there was the matter of his family, there would be no self sacrifices again. Jason had made that point abundantly clear. If there was a problem they'd face it all together, but how was a rock band suppose to stop the Demon's Head and the League of Assassins?


Steph stuck her her head in Tim's room, “Hey. D and I are headed out to grab some ice cream. Want to come with?”


Tim gave a smile as he shut off his laptop. “Sounds good. You're buying right?” he teased.


Steph rolled her eyes. “D said the same thing. You guys are cheep, yes I'll buy.”


Tim got up to follow after Steph. He gave his laptop one last look and felt a tense pain in his chest. For now he'd keep his secret, hoping that for the moment, Ra's would be content with the fan mail.

Hee I'm so glad you liked it. Ra's writing fan mail kind of blows your mind doesn't it? :)

Oohh a story about Tim and Ra's night together would be so good. "feeds plotbunnies to help them along" I's sure Munnin will love it!

And what else should Ra's do to set Tim off balance you think? You know he having some measure of fun playing with Tim's mental well being.

hee sorry for the mauling of plotbunnies . . . kind of . . . maybe . . . not really if it results in Ra's/Tim stories. :D

And speaking of plotbunnies, I love Ra's sending Tim those presents! And Ra's can even send him flowers to each of their concerts and he can get teased by it from the others and he has to hide how much it bothers him because he knows they're from Ra's. (Oh no I haven't been thinking about this for the last day and a half, why do you ask? "grins")

Oh the angst! The angst!

*shudder* creepy. poor little Timmy what ever will he do.

Now that is a very good question. If you get any ideas let me know :)

Oh fuck! Looks like it’s open season for the bad guys. Let’s just hope the Joker doesn’t come out of hiding too.

So well written I wanted to reach for a weapon to keep the boys safe. I could just see it playing on Tim’s mind and him flinching really badly when Jay goes to muck around on stage.

Just incredible! Thank you so much!

Lets just all agree to keep the Joker far far away from this little verse. :P

I'm so glad you liked it, and yeah this is really going to mess with Tim's mental well being. Oh boy if he starts flinching whenever Dick and Jason touch him he's really going to let the others know something's wrong. Lots of fun to be had :)

Thank you so much.

Well done honey!!

Thank you so much. The Band!AU is an addicting little playground to play in and it's a lot of fun. :)

Oh god, so creepy! I particularly liked the bit about his duet with Steph, and asking why he didn't bring it out of the practice room. It's amusing to imagine him at a show, too, far from the stage, in some hidden part of the building away from the screaming fans, perhaps watching with *opera glasses*...

You know Ra's would have one of those cool private boxes or something while he watched Tim too. Sitting there with a glass of wine and his glasses. Grounding his teeth whenever Dick flirted with Tim on stage.

The creepier part of this is that no-one else than Tim will know what is going on until shit hit the fan.
And Steph calling him for ice-cream and cheap guys just makes it creepier in its normalcy.
Apr. 20th, 2010 11:44 pm (UTC)
Yep Tim will keep on smiling and acting as if nothing is wrong until he absolutely can't. And probably by that time he'll be in Ra's clutches. "rolls eyes at silly boy."
Apr. 20th, 2010 05:31 pm (UTC)
Ahhh! Ra's you effing creeper! Probably writing those fan e-mails on a sparkly pink Dell mini or something D:

Poor Tim, poor ALL of them. There is a surplus of evil people in their lives and I'm glad authors are bringing them into the AU. Makes me think about when 'Mama Talia' will pop up!

Loved it! <33333333

Okay Ra's having a pink mini is the funniest image ever!

And I'm glad this this was okay. I was worried it was bad guy over load since Deathstroke had just made an appearance.

Oh gosh, that's so creepy. I love the casual tone Ra's' mail has, it's just.... he isn't being creepy, he almost seems to be writing to Tim like he already feels that they are in a relationship? It's rather terrifying that way, but realistic, in a sense. (and so, all the more creepy) All, in all, it's a really great tone, and a very worrying scenario.
Apr. 24th, 2010 01:09 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure Ra's thinks that he and Tim ARE in a relationship. He just has to remind Tim of that. The casualness does make everything more creepy.

I'm so glad you liked the story
Apr. 24th, 2010 08:24 am (UTC)
*shivers* so casual and possessive, and the way that there really isn't a clear way to... really "deal" with this, I'm so intrigued and terrified at the same time.
