I never realized how mind numbing this place can be without an inmate. [Without someone to focus on while secretly angsting and freaking out, anyway.]

[Private to Zuko]

Your sister's here. Thought you'd want a heads up.

[Private to Cissie]

You talked to him. [Why is he an inmate, where is he from, he isn't Prime right but WHAT IS HAPPENING. :c]

[Private to Dick]

I think this could only be worse if he was Prime.

[Private to Merlin]

I heard some noise in the hall the other day. [Like you getting slapped :v] Everything okay?

[In the background, you can faintly hear the Clash. Tim's bobbing his head along a little when he flicks the video on, and at first his concentration is on his computer, just out of sight, instead of the camera. Then his eyes flick up, and he smiles one of his tiny, only-the-corners-of-my-mouth-really-move smiles.]

I used to be pretty handy with a camera. [Not a word, Batfam. NOT A WORD.] I've taken some pictures during the less crazy ports. [A beat.] Ones where I didn't wind up as a fairy or something, anyway. I've got a few on here from Paris, Vegas, Jurassic Park...And then I got bored and started taking some around the Barge. Sorry.

[He totally isn't, but he does pick up his device and turn it to give a shot of his computer screen, which is running through a slid show. There's a picture of the Champ de Mars in Paris from a suspiciously high angle, but with an Eiffel Tower conspicuously absent; instead, there's lots of rubble being removed. The next is a picture of the Fontainebleau Resort in Vegas; except the picture is taken from above, which pretty much means Tim was on top of the Stratosphere Tower. Then there are a few pictures of a herd of triceratops, a brontosaurus, and a couple of deinonychuses.

Then come the random pictures of people on the Barge. A man stands on the deck, back to the camera, leaning on the rail. Kirk is mid laugh an looks like a hyena. Merlin's eating a sandwich. Dick is mid flip in the gym. Jon Snow and Ghost in the CES; a girl sitting on a common room sofa in front of the TV, back to the camera; several men and women in the lunch line. There are a few of the greenhouses, an empty deck, various scenic pictures of the CES with different settings, random halls and other places around the Barge. And one of McCoy looking at the camera with a 'TIM WHY ARE YOU TAKING PICTURES IN THE INFIRMARY' look, but Tim's skipping that one quickly. They're all very good photos, and after a moment, Tim opens up Photoshop, and starts fiddling with the images, making some black and white, giving others slight tints or tweaks.]

I was thinking about animating a couple. Or I guess I could get rid of some of them, if anyone's uncomfortable. I tried to avoid faces in most of them, but obviously that didn't always happen. There isn't exactly a lot of diversity here to photograph. [And as the Clash song comes to a close and some Depeche Mode starts, Tim's just going very quickly end the video there. God forbid his Enya collection comes on. 8|]

[Private to Shego]

So...[lol awkward :C] Just going to pretend that didn't happen?

((OOC: If anyone w ants their character to be a subject of a photo, go for it. There are certain people he'd avoid, and he'd only show pictures of mundane activities, mostly from behind. So if anyone wants to recognize the back of their head or something, that's awesome. c:))

Now that we've had some distance from the horrors...I used to wonder how we came up with the heart symbol. You know, like this. [He holds up both hands, thumbs and forefingers pressed together to form a <3 shape.] Doesn't look remotely like a real heart, so it had to come from somewhere.

It started with a fig or ivy leaf - if you squint, you can see it here-- [he holds up a book, and on one page, a fig leaf; he flips forward a few pages, and shows an ivy leaf] See? People were using these in art, as early as...I think the third millennium B.C.E., and by the middle ages, people had turned a leaf into a symbol of romantic, courtly love.

[He shrugs, then reaches forward - not to the device, but to his computer. He fiddles for a moment, then pulls the communicator down so that it gets a view of his computer screen.]

This is a cardioid. Actually, you could call it a lot of things, but it boils down to math being romantic. Happy Valentine's Day, I guess, a little late.

[And a couple hours later, he will add with none of the earlier levity,] David's disappeared. I assume his friends already realized. I'm sorry I didn't say something sooner.

[Private to Regina]

So...Can we just forget that whole thing happened?

[Private to Cissie]

Two years ago today. [Why yes, he's being vague to catch your attention.]

[Tim has been pretty absent from the Barge for the past week or so. He's been seen getting food, but he hasn't been particularly sociable...at all, really. He's been in brooding mode. It's a thing he does. So the signs that he's been getting sick have been largely missed, most particularly by himself.

When the video clicks on, there's a groan, and the device wavers for a moment before steadying. Tim is in bed, shirtless because that is how he sleeps, and he's holding the camera above him. And he looks like shit. When he talks, it comes out as a croak. His sore throat went from bad to worse.]

Someone bring me chicken soup. Please.

[His arm gets tired and you all get an extreme close up of his forehead, because that's where he's resting the device. The rest of the audio is muffled, since the mic is like an inch from his mouth.]

Oh my God I think I'm dying. [He's just being a drama queen. But he does groan again, and the picture shuffles and shifts as he rolls over, dragging the covers up over his head before the feed clicks off.]

[There is a child turning on his communicator. He's wearing an ugly little yellow and red and green Christmas sweater. It looks pretty awful, but he doesn't seem to notice it. In fact, he will even wave! Tiny Tim is better adjusted than older-jaded-Tim. :c]

Was I - what's the word - de-aged again? I remember being here last time, but not so much the in between...[He looks over his shoulder for a moment, off to the side.] Do you need help?

[And from somewhere off camera, we can hear Dick:] They're just sandwiches, I can handle it.

Tim gets up and wanders away for a few seconds - you may here him saying something about cutting the crusts off - but then he comes running back, leaning over the communicator.] Oh yeah! Is, um....Is Sylar still here? Am I still supposed to take care of him? [Pause frown there is one he's forgetting...oh yes.] Shego? Are you still here, too? [How does one greet their older self's pretty girlfriend, WITH A TINY SMILE, HI SHEGO.]

((OOC: Lol my userpics expired just in time for lj dickery, so I apparently don't have kid icons on this account. Despite posting with them ten minutes ago. okay lj. :| ANYWAY I will reply from either [livejournal.com profile] whatimcapableof or [livejournal.com profile] boycreeper.))

I figure we've both had time to chill out and think, now. So maybe it's time to talk.


[And Tim just realized that he's just been doing his thing since coming back from Gotham, and that he hasn't actually told anyone he hasn't seen that he's back. Whoops. :c]

I'm back, by the way. Gotham still smells like Gotham.

I'm heading home to Gotham for a little while. don't worry; I'll be back. It shouldn't be too long. So if you want anything, yell.

[Private to Cissie]


[Private to Dick]

I'm working on a new costume design. And I don't really trust the Admiral to get me the right material, so I'm going to grab it when I'm home. [And I want your opinion the look but you have to ask. :c]

You can come with, you know. I mean, to your time, or mine if you wanted. Just to see I'm not lying. [It really is okay man. And then, on an entirely different note:]

How's life as a zookeeper?

[There is a half-smile on Tim's face because oh hey he almost forgot BUT HE IS A GOOD BROTHER and he only forgets his own birthday]

So while the network is completely open...Everyone wish Dick a happy birthday. Since he's turning into an old man and all.

And if there's anyone lurking from home...[He waves lazily. Because he is very aware there may be Titans around to catch up with, along with Jokers.] Hey. [At least there's a smile?]

[Tim is still in the CES, and the angle would indicate he's on the roof of one of those buildings. Because this is what Robins of all generations do. They climb buildings and stand on roofs.]

The staffers are gone.

[He sounds so tired, and the circles under his eyes are intense, but he isn't booking it out of there yet.]

The door showed up, and the rain stopped. [He's turning away, hiding a yawn.] I'm going to check all the buildings, make sure everyone's getting out okay. [Those who survived did anyone even die in this death trap anyway.]

Is the infirmary back? The choices here were exposure or monster: a lot of us are going to need it. [Someone make him go too. :|]

[Private to Dick]

Can I stop checking in now?

[SPAM in the CES]

[Tim stayed on top of the small building for the duration of his post, and then a little longer to watch a few people leave. Then he dropped his makeshift staff over the edge of the roof, pocketed the communicator, and swung back down to the ground to make good on his promise to check the houses.]

[Have a quick pan of the CES, with all its creepy, shitty storming.]

I didn't walk in through the door. I can't find the door. And I've never seen weather this ugly in here.

[The camera wobbles a little, and Tim looks down, then all around him.] Great.

Who else is - [He's pausing, checking the network] - Who besides Buffy is here? And what's happening on the Barge?

[Private to friends]

Updates. Now. [Pause you are not ordering them Tim.] Please.

[Private to Dick]

Tell me you're not stuck here.

[The video is just of a Parisian cityscape, seen from fairly high up. Like on a roof. Tim won't be showing himself at all.]

You know, I never liked Paris. My memories of it aren't the best. But it could be worse - we could be in Madrid. Madrid is definitely the Gotham of Spain.

In my universe, anyway.

[A pause, and the camera turns off for a few moments. When it's on again, we're higher up, and the view is of where the Eiffel Tower should be. The debris has been cleared away, but there's a pretty wide swatch of destruction all around it. The base is being rebuilt.]

For anyone who's interested, this didn't happen naturally. It didn't just rust and fall down. You might run into trouble with local authorities, so try to keep an extra low profile.

[There's some shuffling out of view, and then Tim turns the camera on himself. It's carefully just on his head, and if you can see some material bunched around his shoulders and neck....it's a scarf. :|]

Sight seeing's kind of out of the question, I guess.

[And off goes the camera.]

((OOC: So Tim will mostly be looking into the Eiffel Tower incident, but he's so very open to spam anywhere. Because he needs to get out of that costume before he starts smelling too hideous, okay. OH and all his replies will be voice!]

[On a teeny tiny communicator made of acorns and fairy dust and BELIEF is Tim. Who has an acorn top as a hat. Oh and wings. He has wings, too. They're still for the moment, but they twitch and he lifts off his tiny branch in his very big tree every now and then, because HOW DO SIT STILL.]

Hey! Listen!

[No that's all you get for now. Timkerbell is Navi. Good luck.]

[Open Spam]

[It was always so hard to go anywhere when the wind was gusting. Tim struggled to fly onward, his eyes tearing up as the wind stung. It would have been so much easier if he could just walk like a human boy. It would be so much easier if he WAS a human boy. No more flying everywhere and not being heard and oh goodness that wind.

It barreled him over, head over heels over head over heels and wings and heels, through the air until he hit a tree, or a rock, or a person. Tim groaned; at least he hadn't landed on his head. Being a fairy was not what it was cracked up to be.]

There's enough disorder here on a regular basis without wondering who's plotting against us.

Persson, Banner, Kirk. Yuy, Penderghast, Morrigan. Atia, Mozenrath, Nygma.

Edward's already in Zero. Someone look after Barron, he's lost enough memory for it not to matter. Kirk's been conspiring with the inmates. Una's harboring O'Brien and possibly Beatty; she's a collaborator.

Some of you are bored. Do something useful.

[Tim is in Batman regalia. The video is mostly only showing his face. Which is hidden but for the jaw. His eyes are narrowed.]

Stop whining. Get your acts together and do your jobs.

If you're looking for entertainment? Find your inmates and do what you're here to do. [Meaning: Leave his alone. :|]

[Private to Sylar]


((OOC: OKAY SO Tim is very much affected. He's about 27, never takes off the costume, and he is SCARY. SO SCARY. He is the quietly intimidating son of a bitch you will be there behind you when you least expect it. He's used to being listened too on the rare occasions when he decides to address the barge. BASICALLY HE'S SCARY AND HAS NEVER HESITATED TO EXACT VIOLENCE ON THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM. Run. :c

I think our ages have been inverted. A thirty-one-year-old becomes thirteen, a twenty-nine-year-old becomes ninety-two. Seems more likely than arbitrary aging and deaging.

[The video clicks on, an Tim is rocking that widow's peak at a very old 91. He looks like he could use a nap, but can't take one.]

Sylar, I hope you're not affected. You should still be in your twenties, at least.

You know, I never expected to live this long. [It's thoughtful, and he mostly didn't intend to say it out loud.]

[Private to Dick]

Sound off.

[Private to Cissie]

I'm wondering if this is a good time to have it out. Since we might break a hip if we get too worked up.

[Warden Filter]

[Hi guys. You know what Tim is not going to do? Talk about Bruce or Steph or Wally or Conner. Well maybe a little later. But right now he's kind of pissed and feeling all those angry clingy feelings teenagers feel when someone else shows interest in someone they've known longer.]

On June 13th, Bourne showed us what his inmate, David could do. He showed us that David had been impersonating him. He promised us it wouldn't happen again, and that David would be punished accordingly.

What he didn't tell us was that he made David morph into a rat, and took away his ability to change back. He didn't tell us that he was effectively torturing his inmate. [And Tim is actually pretty furious at this point, and for those who recognize it, there is more than a little bit of Batman mode going on here.]

I'm reluctant to bring this up now, since I'm sure we're all tired of arguing about the obvious, but either we all agree to see only to our own inmates, or we step in when another warden sees fit to torture his own.

[Private to Bourne]

If you ever think about doing that to him again, remember that I'm here. [Full on Batman voice. It's a scary thing. Maybe not for Bourne, but this is not teenage Tim Drake he's dealing with anymore.]


Superboy left a few days ago. [Because damn it, even if he doesn't want to talk about it to anyone at all ever, Conner deserves some God damned recognition, even here. At least Tim sounds cool when he says it; he's fiiiiine, really. :|]

[Private to David, added later]

So is there any chance the Admiral can supply us with egg whites? I think I 'm putting on weight, and it's definitely not muscle.

[Filtered to friends + Sylar, if you're unsure if you're on it just ask!]

Sorry I've been so quiet lately. It wasn't intentional. [Lol yes it was, but shhhh.]

[Private to Shego]

Do you want to have dinner in the CES later? [He feels a little bad about not being super involved or distracting since Kirk peaced.]

[Private to the Seventh Doctor]

How do you feel about tinkering on non-fatal weapons?
