We're driving to visit the Mother in law, in Fairbanks. It's a ten hour drive. Why must Alaska be so big? Anyway we're leaving Sunday and my connection may be a bit sketchy while we're there, so you're probably better off texting me if you need to get in touch.

Wellerism: an expression of comparison comprising a usually well-known quotation followed by a facetious sequel

Tim groaned, and glared at Dick.

"You're supposed to laugh, little brother." Dick grins and pokes at Tim's cheeks.

Tim bats his hands away, stepping back. "Dick, no one laughs at puns."

"Bruce used to."

That makes Tim blink. "Really?"

Dick nods. "It was about the only way I could get him to laugh. I'd hoped it would work on you too. I guess I'll have to resort to tickling." Dick waggles his fingers menacingly.

Tim takes off running, jumping to the next rooftop. This time he does laugh.

Deke: to fake (an opponent) out of position (as in ice hockey)

'Smile' Tim thought. It was a good smile. He knew, he'd had plenty of time to perfect it. Years of smiling at teachers and housekeepers.

And now time to sell it. "I'm fine, Dick, really. You don't have to worry about me."

Dick tilted his head and looked doubtful. Tim widen the smile just a bit.

Dick sighed and pulled Tim into a hug. Tim froze for a moment, like he always did. Maybe someday he'd get used to the hugging. "I know that works on Bruce, little brother, but you don't need to do that with me."

Tim sucked in a shaky breath, not a sob, not yet. "It's alright, Tim. I'm here for you."

I’m a week behind on these. Ah the joys of writers block. I’ll be catching up and posting the missed words as time and inspiration allow.

Fifth column: a group of secret supporters of an enemy that engage in espionage or sabotage within national borders

Dick stopped by a two AM, not long after Tim had gotten in from patrol. They talked for a bit and Dick hugged him and ruffled his hair before he left.

Tam showed up at nine with two very large, steaming cups of coffee. They talked mostly about work and the meeting later today, but also in very coded words that let Tam ask how he was without really asking about his nighttime activities.

Steph came by at three after her last class, demanding he join her for a late lunch. They talk about old times and her classes, his work. He agrees to meet her later tonight. She wants his help on a case.

Alfred comes by with a warm casserole, and a few dishes for his freezer. He tuts about the state of Tim’s fridge, nearly empty, and commends him on being the tidiest of his charges.

“Alfred?” Tim asks

“Yes, Master Timothy?”

“Tell Bruce to just call, okay?”

“I have, sir, but I believe it bears repeating. Just don’t forget the telephone works both ways.”

Tim ducks his head and smiles. “I won’t.”

Didactic: 1: designed or intended to teach 2: making a moral observation

Tim picked himself up off the mats, perhaps more slowly than he had the last time, and fell into his ready position. Shiva raised her eyebrow and attacked again. Tim managed to block two strikes this time before, once more, his face was on the, thankfully padded, floor. He took a deep breath and pushed himself up again.

“Enough.” Tim stood anyway, bowing to her. Shiva snorted. “You’ve made your point, little bird. Tomorrow the real lessons begin.”

Vinaceous: of the color of red wine

Tim smooths the silk dress down. It’s darker than Robin red and sets off Tim’s complexion really well. Tim carefully applies the makeup. The lipstick matches the dress perfectly and it makes Tim smile. The girl in the mirror is very pretty. Nothing like the awkward boy from mere moments ago. Tim practices batting eyelashes, and blowing kisses. Flirtatious, confidant, beautiful. Tim freezes at the knock on the door.

“Better hurry downstairs, little brother. We don’t want to be late for dinner.”

“I’ll be down in a few minutes, Dick.”

Tim stares in the mirror, listening as Dick hurries down the stairs. Would Dick like her? Tim touches the dark strands of hair. No she’s not his type. Tim will never be his type. The cleanser erases any trace of her and any dampness that might have been in Tim’s eyes. The dress is carefully tucked away in the “disguise” section of the closet. Tim spends a moment running fingers over the dark red silk. Some other day.

King’s ransom: a very large sum of money


'We HaVe ThE gIrL. iF yOu WaNt To SeE hEr AgAiN bRiNg 1 mIlLiOn DoLlArS tO mEmOrIaL PaRk @ mIdNiGht.' Ollie read the Ransom note twice looking for any clue as to who the kidnappers might be. He was halfway into his costume and turning on the tracking program that could trace Mia's suit when the girl in question burst through the door.

"Oh hey. Sorry I'm late there was a scuffle on my way home. I'll be ready for patrol in 5 minutes tops, I promise."

She looked at him funny when he burst out laughing, joining him when he handed her the note to read. He clapped her shoulder, beaming proudly. "You did good, kid, but next time leave some for me."

Omnium-gatherum: a miscellaneous collection (as of things or persons)

Alfred looked at the young men and women gathered around the table in the cave. Dick In his first Nightwing costume, the one Alfred had made for him and that he hadn't worn in many a year. Jason, so very young, and just as brash and hopeful as a boy his age should be. It hurt to much to try and find a way to warn the poor boy, but Alfred would try none the less. Tim, wearing green and not so crushed by the burdens life would throw at him. Miss Stephanie was in need of a warning as well though perhaps a sternly worded letter for her to take back to Bruce would serve better. Damian sat their as well and Alfred was uncertain if he belonged here or if he too had been pulled from somewhen else. Miss Carrie was a new addition, and perhaps that was why Damian was pouting so. Alfred was not found of the tradition of letting children face danger but if she was anything like the others gathered around the table, it wasn't a matter of letting them face danger as it was of making sure they knew what they were doing when they went out permission or no.

He set down the tray, laden with tea and sandwiches, giving Dick a pointed look when he tried to reach for a cookie first. He took a look over to where the Phantom Stranger was chatting with Bruce and hurried to get some paper to jot a few quick notes. It would be remiss of him to send them all home without at least trying to steer them right. That was his duty after all.

Keelhaul: 1: to haul under the keel of a ship as punishment or torture 2: to rebuke severely

Dinah was beautiful when she was angry. Not that Ollie was foolish enough to tell her that. Nor was he foolish enough to get on her bad side, not anymore anyway. No it was far more fun to watch her tear into Hal.

Or Bruce. Having her leading of the League was the best decision anyone could have made. She wasn't afraid to tell it like it is and stand up to Bruce and Clark and Diana when they got all high and mighty.

Dinah turned from Hal and started addressing the rest of the table. Ollie sat up a little straighter and grinned. She could have had her pick of anyone in the room, any of them, but she chose him after everything they'd been through. That pretty bird was going home with him tonight and he couldn't be happier or more proud.
