Proof that the remaining 10% is both vengeance and the night here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Robin and Red Robin fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a recommendation of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

  • Synopsis: What's the story about? Give here a brief summary of the plot. It would be also useful to point out in what moment of the series the story takes place. If it's a Gen Fic but it has some romantic elements, note here the characters involved too.

  • Pairing(s): If it's a Shipping Fic, list here the pairings that feature in the fic (warn here if it's het, male slash or female slash). If it's a Gen Fic, remove this line. To tell the difference between the two, notice if the focus of the fic is on a romantic relationship or if it focuses on the other aspects of the story. In case of doubt, classify the story according to the genres it's been tagged: the Romance tag for Shipping, absence of that tag for Gen Fic.

  • Synopsis: Tim stalked Jason to Ethiopia. He managed to stop the Joker from killing Robin, but he got badly injured in the process. The Batfam finds out about the Drakes neglect of their son and are determined to win custody of him.
  • Comments: It's nice to see Jason, Tim, and Dick all bonding. This fic really showcases both Tim's intelligence and the Drakes' neglect, though it creates an outright abusive Janet mostly whole cloth.

  • Synopsis: Tim wakes drugged far from home and his best friend stops by to give him a lift.
  • Comments: A good short fic with a look at Kon-el and Tim's friendship. The author has numerous other Batfamily related fics though most contain mildly OOC Robins in order to keep everyone friendly with each other. Mirrored on AO3 here.

  • Synopsis: Tim finds himself in a little over his head when his attempt to deal with some smugglers is interrupted by a battle between Killer Frost and Mister Freeze, and communications are down just to complicate matters.
  • Comments: A fic with a realistic take on Damian having matured further than canon gave him time to and forced into a position where he's responsible for Tim. The tale gives just enough to make it clear how their relationship as brothers is slowly improving while maintaining Damian's spiteful snark. Mirrored on Fanfiction.net here and tumblr here. Now with a continuation, here.

Sorry That I Bruced You by quipquipquip

  • Pairings: Tim/Stephanie
  • Synopsis: He tied a purple ribbon around a brick and left it on her windowsill with a note that said: Want to catch a movie on Friday? - Alvin. Post Batgirl #24.
  • Comments: A perfectly in character tale with callbacks to Tim and Steph's early days as Robin and Spoiler. It fits easily within cannon by including a bit tying a throwaway line from the last issue of Batgirl (2009) to the running gag of comparing Tim's Red Robin costume to Doctor Midnight
