Robins in a room

I have decided to push my alleged magical Robin powers to their limits. To this end, I have written a short framing-device scene, one that allows for Robin-Robin interactions of all permutations within its context.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to give me the names of two Robins you want to interact. They can be from any era, any continuity, any particular characterisation. Want me to write Rochelle of the French Revolution meeting the Robin of the 1960s? The Toy Wonder meeting Toon-Tim? Thirteen-year-old Dick Grayson meeting just-fired Stephanie Brown? Clash of the Jasons? Challenge away. I'll write snippets for them when I get home this evening. They don't have to be wildly out-there, either. Core-canon Robins are more than acceptable. So are those from fic-verses.

I like to think of it as a characterisation exercise. Like juggling, but with more sidekick-fu. Oh, and people are absolutely more than welcome to write their own scenes, too. Heaven forbid I should be the only one having such fun. Come play!

Anyway. Framing scene:

Somewhere near the back of the room, there is another Tim. The other Tim, though there are others who go by that name and wear his face scattered around the room. The Tim who catches his attention is the Tim he has met before. The Tim he used to be, before the world got so dark.

It's hard to look at him. It's hard to look at so many of them. At those with Carrie's grin, when his own Carrie is still such a recent, raw memory. At Stephanie...

It's less painful to rest his eyes on Bette. Flamebird, Batwoman, she was his Robin in all but name. The look she gives him from out in the crowd isn't yet edged with the brittle disgust which he knows so well.

Tim's own mouth twists into something like a smile as he notices the other Tim edge closer to Kon-El. There is familiarity thick as fog in this room, draped in red and green and gold. For the first time in many years, he almost misses wearing brightness.

He clears his throat, and speaks above the murmured din. "I apologise for any after-affects you might feel from the Hypertime disruption. I've brought you all here today because I needed soldiers I knew I could trust. And there are none I trust more than you, Robin."


... right. So. Challenge me.
