    Summary

    There was one dish his mama always made after a particularly bad day. She called it pirogo. It was a pudding, noodle pudding, creamy and sweet and warm from the small counter-top oven in their trailer. It tasted like raisins and walnuts and cinnamon and burned tongues.

    There was one day, when Dick came back to the trailer with his face covered in mud and bruises and tears, when mama had wiped his face clean and kissed his cheek and made him his very own mini pirogo for dinner.

    Summary

    "So I commended the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be merry. For this joy will accompany him in his labor during the days of his life that God gives him under the sun."
    Ecclesiastes 8:15

    Or:

    How Dick Grayson developed an eating disorder, realized that the vigilante lifestyle was not conducive to peak mental health, and ran away with his little brother to join the circus.

    Summary

    “Do you find it less frightening; knowing what will happen? I'd rather imagine the opposite were true. You see, my husband was a master at psychological games – planting seeds of intent and letting them grow whichever way his assets chose. The torments they imagined were horrors of their own design. Charles loved that – knowing they only needed a little... pressure. What horrors were you imagining, I wonder, when you blew his brains out?”

    Summary

    And yet… Dick knew that he wouldn’t be able to stop. He would never be able to stop, not until his body forced him to. He was born into athleticism and formed into a weapon at a young age. He was at top physical form, the peak human condition. But Dick could already feel himself break. How much longer would he be able to pretend? For how much longer would Nightwing be able to fly, to save the world?

    For how much longer would Dick Grayson be allowed to exist?

    Because if there was a Dick Grayson without Nightwing, Dick didn’t know him. If there was a part of him that existed without the hero-persona lurking behind, then Dick had no idea what part that was.

    Or: Dick questions what being a child hero really means, and Uncle Clark is there to listen
