Stephanie: What you’re doing is illegal.
Jason: I’m not taking advice from you. You pronounce the "g" in "lasagna".
Some gotham villain kidnapping Danny and Livestreaming their plan, they are in the middle of their monologue when the camera starts glitching
It starts from where the boy is seen and then spreads to the rest of the stream
There is about 30 seconds of no one seeing anything and when it cuts back to it Danny is just standing on top of a knocked out villain asking people on how to deal with it through live chat
The bats speed up when he goes "I could condemn his soul, like I got this guy who could send him to his nightmare dimension" and the whole Livestream starts chanting "Go go go!"
This is a reoccurring theme, none of the villains remember what happened
Until the joker tries it
Until the joker is actually condemned
I am once again thinking about baby medic Jason and everything we could of had if DC writers actually read comics besides the ones they themselves write

The second, secret Justice League (DC x DP)
The Infinite Realms, is something like a ligament joining all the different dimensions together through their afterlives.
So Danny's left his original dimension behind. Maybe after everyone he loves become ghosts they all decide it's easier to move into the zone full time. No rent, no GIW, no Fenton parents.
Over time it's decided that while the Ghost Zone doesn't need a monarch (hey their last one took a nap for 1000 years and nothing fell apart, clearly this position is not super essential for the day-to-day running of the ghost zone), an envoy or ambassador would be handy!
So Danny, as the most living-inclined ghost around gets the job immediately. Most ghosts are fairly hostile and social faux-pas around their treatment, triggers and deaths will lead straight to violence they can't really stop themselves. But Danny is much more centred and could deal with rude dimensions. Also, he can protect and disguise himself much more effectively than literally anyone else should his work take him to a hostile dimension.
There's a whole wealth of fic in this ambassador idea I swear.
Then one day the Justice League from their own dimension summon "The Ghost Leader" to help with a rampant ghost hoarde or something but instead get Danny who tells them "Oh, we actually deposed our 'leader' but I am the official representative of the Infinite Realms and I can totally process your request!"
There is definitely some upset about how young the ghost is - while Danny as a human is now a young man, as a ghost he's 14, still. Frostbite says he'll grow more when he dies again.
They ultimately decide to introduce themselves and Danny gets very excited. "Oh, I know you guys!"
They have no way of knowing that when alive, Danny lived in a dimension that they didn't exist in.
"Yeah, your other branch!"
Batman gets very concerned that there are imposters using their name and potentially their reputations to manipulate ghost children who somehow represent their entire realm.
"Yeah, Jason - I mean batman and I, we're really close. Ice and Mystek actually live with friends of mine, although I don't know them very well. Metamorpho lives with one of my rogues, they're really close, I think it's a compartmentalising thing?"
Anyways, everyone has a lot of questions now they know that almost every single Justice League-adjacent vigilante that died in uniform met up in the afterlife to make another Justice League. Damian is furious that a son who wasn't him got to be batman first.
Batman is ready to go on the offensive. Because surely if his son is still sentient enough to continue his vigilante work then he'd be sentient enough to want to visit him. Some other ghost must be keeping Jason away from him.
Jon: We had a party for Valentine's day at my school.
Damian: Valentine's Day is just a consumerist holiday that holds no real value other than drive people insane buying heart shaped chocolates for their significant others and-
Jon: They told us to make cards for the people we cared about, so I made one for you.
Jon: *hands him a card covered with glitter*
Damian: tt- thank you.
The day Damian and Tim discover how easy it is to terrify members of their family by acting nice to each other is the day its over for literally everyone else.
Barbara Gordon, coming to the manor for dinner and a check up of security measures: Why is Bruce hiding in the kitchen?
Dick Grayson, texting Zatanna about possible mind control/body snatching magic: Tim and Damian were talking about photography in the living room.
Barbara Gordon: Oh! That’s-
Dick Grayson, looking up: Tim. And Damian. Were having a civil conversation. In the living room.
Barbara Gordon, softer and with feeling: Oh
Tim, enjoying his unexpected free afternoon: This was a great idea!
Damian, here to cause chaos: Don’t get too comfortable, Timothy. Gordon was looking up exorcisms last time I saw her.
Tim: Oh fu-
and then this went on for like ten minutes,
bitches will be like ‘omg batdad moment!!’ and it’s bruce putting his hand on one of his kids shoulders. that bar is in hell and we’re all living there.
Us: Jason has major dad vibes and would totally inherit the “can’t stop getting kids” problem from Bruce
I've decided that all of Damian's teachers at Gotham Academy know he's Robin (because ffs he talks like he's from the 1800s and he's always ready to cut a bitch, it's pretty distinctive in and out of the tights) but they're keeping it to themselves because the drama and politics involved in accusing Bruce Wayne Himself of child neglect is too much to fathom, but they do have an unofficial weekly staff meeting to compare notes and make sure the poor kid is sleeping.
During parent teacher conferences they send Bruce home with a Preteen Care Package containing:
A developmental psychology textbook filled with "this is why he does that" sticky notes and a bookmarked section on recklessness and impulsivity associated with pubescent hormones
A few pamphlets on child sleep needs and nutritional guides for active teenagers
An article on single fatherhood and demonstrating positive masculinity
A printed PowerPoint on guiding your teen athlete through rapid growth spurts without injury
And a handwritten note that says "we're thrilled that Damian cares for animals so much, but the Bat Cow is pushing it a bit" with an invite to the next unofficial weekly staff meeting
Bruce goes to the meeting.
He also decides the rest of the kids (and Alfred, oh god) will never find out about this.
Jason starts teasing him about it the next day.
Jason: I’m wanted in a couple states.
Jason: Fifty, actually.
Damian befriends Danny after Bruce said something about "civilian friends"
Considering Danny looks like a feral cat on his best days, it was only logical to befriend him
Danny wonders why such a tiny (Damian is in fact quite tall for his age but Danny deals with so many eldtrich "horrors" everyday that everything seems tiny) kid is going around and befriending obviously older teens
One day Damian announces that he will bring over his friend which makes the rest of the batclan look at him in disbelief
So of course they are quite shocked when Damian actually brings a human being! A bit raggedy looking but he also quite obviously looks after Damian as good as he can
Damian refuses to let Danny be adopted because it's his friend, you can't take it away from him! (also in his mind Danny still equals to a feral cat he barely managed to bribe into the home, they are gonna scare him off at this rate!!)
A lot of shenanigans happen but Damian thinks the worst of worst is the fact that drake had started to flirt with his cat friend! Preposterous!
It takes them an embarrassing amount of time to realize Danny used to be a vigilante and they are still in the middle of getting Damian out of the cat mindset so it gets put out of mind
Fun news guys I'm still watching Bluey and I've decided that if the blue cartoon dog is gonna make me sad it's gonna make you guys sad enjoy
