And people wonder why I don't care much for my future self. He keeps telling me that I should do what I need to in order to preserve the future. Though I'm starting to wonder if what he's telling me isn't worth that grain of salt after all.


Not to mention what he told me about Cassie...!


[Locked to those who know Tim's secret identity]


Thinking about all the people I've lost-there's a long list I shouldn't have to rehash. Knowing myself as well as I do, I'm sure he meant the people close to me.

Like my dad, my mom, Stephanie...Conner and Bart...

What I said before, during the time I went to see my parents was true. Every damn day I have to find another reason to put the mask back on...! Sometimes, it's for Bruce. Sometimes, it's for Dick. Sometimes, it's for Barbara. Sometimes, it's for Alfred. Sometimes, it's for Conner. Sometimes, it's for Bart. Sometimes, it's for Stephanie. Sometimes, it's for Cassie. Sometimes, it's for Kara. Sometimes, it's for Cassandra. A lot of times...it's for my parents.

I can't give up, but...to do what's right just because of the future and what could happen...!

Is it really worth it?

(eyes narrow behind mask) Do we even need to get into what happened with Damian? Short version: he showed up, broke into the Manor, and appeared to attack Alfred. Have to admit, even when I'm bashing the little brat's head in, Alfred can give sage advice.

Then again, he gave me this advice before I started bashing his head in!

As for your "future self", you know how he always teaches: everything is information, right? Grains of salt are a detective's stock in trade.

And always listen to Alfred. He's like Yoda.

(nods) Everything is information needed to preserve his future. Not the one I should try to carve for myself.

Yeah-Alfred's our Yoda. (grins faintly) Though, without the ears, the lightsaber and the awesome flips, twists and turns around the 'Cave.

As certain mutual friends of ours keep reminding me, there's nothing about the future set in stone.

*laughs* You never know. One day, he just might surprise us.

Yeah. Good advice to always keep in mind.

(laughs) He just might-like the time Bruce took Alfred by surprise when he mentioned that he knew The Clash.

What? That's what's happening to you?

Well, it's not much better than Kon trying to beat the crap out of me, I guess.

And, you don't need to put the mask on for me. I think you said it best when you mentioned your parents, though. That? I can see you doing it for them.

Yeah-I'm playing mind games with myself. Never thought I'd see that day come.

Also never thought I'd hear that Kon was actually one-upping you, or trying to.

(nods solemnly) Thanks, Kara.

Oh, does that mean you think that I could totally take Kon down? Because I can. Really. Maybe. Well, I hope that I can!

You're welcome, Tim. You know I love you.

The first-and only-confrontation you had with Kon-the real Kon, I should add-you decked him, broke his jaw and realigned his jaw within seconds! You shouldn't have too many problems dealing with this one. Save for the fact that he's a little darker.

I know. Love you too, Kara.

You remembered! I figured you guys were too busy trying to kick my ass (well, Cassie was, at least) to even remember! A little bit darker? Try a lot!

You're getting mushy on me, now.

Correction: Cassie was too busy trying to kick your ass; Raven wanted to see what kind of ordeal you were going through but couldn't keep you contained in the dark. Vic and Beast Boy were keeping Kon restrained as best they could. I was in the Jet while Bart was the only one who wasn't anywhere in Smallville since I'd sent him to get Kory.

How is she doing, btw? Point well taken, after the brief interaction I had with him.

I blame the upcoming holiday turkey tradition. (grins) You know you're invited to join us this year, right?

Oh, picky, picky. *laughs* But yeah. It wasn't one of my most memorable meetings.

How's Kory? I don't know. She's gotten quiet on me lately. I think she's avoiding me or something, I don't know. This whole thing is confusing.

I'm invited? *blink* Really? *jumps into his arms* Thank you! I didn't want to impose on Kal and everything, so... thank you.

True-though things turned out for the better afterward. Other than that whole ordeal with Luthor, you being split in two, etc.

She'll be back to normal soon before too long-hopefully. You're not alone on being confused about stuff lately.

Yeah...you're invited. (eyes widen, hugs her) And, you're welcome. Just remember one thing-don't get in between Dick and the turkey. (grins) He's been trying for years to carve the damn thing during Thanksgiving and Christmas; Alfred won't let him.

You know far too much about my life, Tim. Does Bruce have it all documented, or are you just THAT good? *laughs*

Yeah, hopefully. What IS it with women? Not me, of course.

Got it. And I somehow don't think Alfred is going to let him this year, either. It's Alfred! He can totally kick ALL of our asses.

I'm not known as an uber-detective solely for my good looks. (laughs) The answer is option C-both.

Not gonna touch that one...especially with a 39 1/2 foot pole. (grin broadens)

Exactly.

That's true. C. Although you ARE good-looking Tim, so shut up! *laughs*

Also a good answer.

My point exactly-most people look up to you, and most admire you. My face isn't seen by many people as Robin.
