Added DiffLines:

* InSeriesNickname:
**Jason uses his usual unflattering set for his siblings, including "Replacement" for Tim and "Golden Boy" and "Bluebird" for Dick. He also privately refers to Tim as "sneaky kid" but only within his own thoughts. He refers to Bulleteer as "Chrome Tits" before an unimpressed Tim informs him of her name, though he'd been thinking of her as "Chrome Woman" before he needed to bring her up in conversation so he was just trying to be crass. Damian mostly gets variations on "Baby Bird", "demon" and "prince".
** Dick calls Jason "Little Wing", a nickname from cannon Jason does not care for.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut:
** Jason starts humming Music/PinkFloyd's "Poles Apart" after Dick asks him to hum if he won't talk or sing while Dick slowly looses consciousness. Some of the lyrics, those which reflect their current situation, appear as Jason thinks of them in the first two chapters.
** When Jason flippantly refers to Dick as "Big Bird" Tim almost smiles and Jason figures he probably watched ''Series/SesameStreet'' as a toddler.
** Jason thinks of [[Literature/TheFourGospels Luke]] 17:2 in chapter 8.
** Jason muses ''Way to skip past the point. Hopeless failure, [[TabletopGame/{{Monopoly}} do not pass go, do not collect 200 batpoints]].'' in chapter 9.
** Jason quotes [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]]'s Theatre/RichardIII in chapter 10.
--->''"My conscience hath a thousand several tongues, and every tongue brings forth a several tale, and every tale condemns me for a villain".''
** Jason thinks of several plays he read in the Wayne family library in chapter 10, including ''Theatre/CaesarAndCleopatra'' by George Bernard Shaw and of going to see ''Three Tall Women'' by Edward Albee.
** Nurse Rourdan labels Jason's things as belonging to "Little Red Riding Hood" to get back at him for his sass.
** Jason and Alfred trade quotes from '[[Creator/RobertFrost The Death of the Hired Man]]' and the Gospel of Luke in the epilogue.
** Cass trolls Jason with an VideoGame/AngryBirds toy.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: Jason and Tim are both in fine form, and [[ComicBook/Batgirl2000 Cass]] manages to join in the family snarking tradition in a grand way even while keeping to her usual brevity.


Added DiffLines:

* LastRequest: Dick and Jason both know Dick is bleeding out and Dick forces him to agree to a favor before he passes out, which is mainly that Jason try to look out for their little brothers if Dick dies. Jason finds this hilarious since he's made multiple attempts on their lives but still agrees to do so, even if his response is darkly sarcastic.


Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: There are many nods to events from the comics, and the notes at the end of each chapter try to give a frame of reference for what issues of what books were referenced in the chapter.

->''For all the blood on his hands, Red Hood was never just a villain. And Nightwing never gives up on family, not for good.''

[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/2273208/chapters/4994631 All the Roofs of Uncertainty]] by [[https://archiveofourown.org/users/Kieron_ODuibhir/pseuds/Kieron_ODuibhir Kieron ODuibhir]] is a ContinuationFic in a version of the DCU's New Earth continuity where ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}} did not set the reset button.

The story picks up with Jason Todd several years after that continuity was cut off and follows him in the aftermath of a fight to protect earth that ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} gave him clearance for despite their previous animosity. As the tale unfolds Jason and [[ComicBook/{{Batman}} Bruce]] finally bury the hatchet and Jason agrees to try being a part of the family again.
----
* ActionDad: The story features some of DC's finest action dads in action, including [[ComicBook/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]] and [[ComicBook/TheFlash Wally West]], as well as a look at a broken one in Roy Harper whose daughter's murder will always weigh heavily on him.
* AfterActionHealingDrama: Jason finds Dick badly injured on the battlefield in the first chapter and most of the rest of the fic takes place while he's trying to get Dick help or at the hospital waiting to see if he's going to pull through.
* AlienBlood: The aliens attacking the earth bleed green.
* CainAndAbel: Poor Tim's position as the Abel to both Damian and Jason is highlighted in the waiting room. He's protective of Damian despite his younger brother's viciousness and tries to be courteous to Jason while being on guard for Jason's potential to attack them both.
* TheCameo:
** ComicBook/{{Static}} ends up on the same "ambulance" as Dick and Jason, he's not even named but is recognizable by description.
** [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] (Freddy) and Bulleteer (Alix) are in the waiting room openly eavesdropping on Jason, Tim and Damian.
* CompletedFic: The fic is complete at eleven chapters + an epilogue.
* ContinuityNod: Approximately every bit of conversation between Jason and the rest of the Batclan once off the battlefield is a reference to canonical events from the comics, and he muses over some of the less savory things he did and his rational behind those actions privately as well.
* CoolHelmet: Jason's wearing his fan preferred sleek red motorcycle helmet, not the tall "bucket" or the bizarre hideous face conforming one. It gets taken off pretty early on and then wrecked when he pisses of ComicBook/TheFlash and Wally punches a hole in it.
* ADickInName: Jason takes gleeful advantage of Dick's name.
* DominoMask: All the Batfamily members are wearing theirs besides ComicBook/RedRobin and Batman. Jason's wearing his under his helmet, and then only the mask after he takes the helmet off.
* DysfunctionJunction: The Wayne family's exceptionally messed up relationships with each other and horrifying collection of tragic backstories is dragged to light by Bruce who wants to try and make things a bit better, and succeeds for once by managing to wrangle his manipulative troop of kids and himself to family therapy.
* InsufficientlyAdvancedAlien: The JLA and their allies completely decimate the invaders, though the aliens do some damage first. Jason wonders to himself why aliens still bother trying to attack earth when the planet has already proven itself better defended than [[ComicBook/GreenLantern Oa]].
* MercyKill: Jason offhandedly kills an injured alien that no longer poses a threat to save it from ending up in the hands of "[[ComicBook/AmandaWaller Waller]] or her ilk". He discovered Dick when he was walking towards what he thought was another injured alien he intended to put down.
* PapaWolf: Jason manages to infuriate [[ComicBook/TheFlash Wally West]] by bringing up his own death as a sidekick and asking why the hell Wally is "allowing" his own daughter to act as Impulse.
* PsychicBlockDefense: The therapist Dr. Ming is a meta with protection against psychic attacks.
* RevenantZombie: Jason choosing to act like he is one is discussed at length while Bruce tries to convince him that he's been given a second chance at life and he should grab at that and go ahead and ''live''.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Thoroughly averted and discussed. Jason is still understandably furious at Bruce for his dying message and blows up when Bruce tries to bring up therapy, in the end they do end up going (as seen in the epilogue) since Bruce has managed to find someone he actually trusts and who has natural defenses against PsychicPowers.
* WarFic: Starts during the final battle between earth and extraterrestrial invaders.
