Well, when I say "made"...I'm nine chapters into I'll Be Yours (A Love Story), a story I started in 2010 in a fandom I'm no longer active in BUT I SWEAR I WILL FINISH IT. I SWEAR. DAMMIT.
BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
So. Batman fandom. This was kind of my main thing a few years ago. And one of the Batfamily of which I'm very fond (here's a hint: I'M VERY FOND OF ALL OF THEM) is Tim Drake, who I loved before I even "met" him, based on what I'd heard about him, which is that he is extremely smart and maybe just a little bit ha ha creepy as fuck.
See, when Tim is a small boy his parents who mostly don't know how to show him they love him and leave him to be raised by nannies 90% of the time take him to the circus and he meets Dick Grayson who is friendly and WONDERFUL and I guess maybe Tim falls instantly in love, but in any case Dick's parents die on stage that night and the whole experience sticks in Tim's head and he becomes OBSESSED with Dick and kind of celebrity-stalks him for years. Then one day he sees news footage of Robin doing a quadruple somersault which Tim, Ultimate Dick Grayson Fan, knows that ONLY A FLYING GRAYSON CAN DO AND TWO OUT OF THREE FLYING GRAYSONS ARE DEAD HOLY CRAP DICK GRAYSON IS ROBIN. From there it's not hard to figure out that Bruce is Batman. Young Tim takes up photography and, presumably, parkour or something and STALKS DICK AND BRUCE OVER ROOFTOPS FOR YEARS, TAKING PICTURES OF THEM. And then later when Jason becomes Robin #2, stalks him also. AND THEY NEVER NOTICE.
Tim Drake is, surprisingly, not one of the villains. He becomes Robin #3. BUT I WOULD UNDERSTAND IF YOU WERE CONFUSED. He does grow up to be surprisingly well-adjusted (for Batfamily, which...maybe isn't saying much) and he's incredibly smart and a natural detective, but yeah. Kind of a creeper. (See the icon I'm using, actual speech bubble, Tim talking about Dick. Hahahahahaha.)
So I thought all of this was kind of great and very funny and I was listening to my iPod at work or on the way to the bus one time and "Angel" by Massive Attack comes on, which, if you don't think that song is the creepiest song to ever creep, I don't know what to do with you. And at this time of my life literally EVERYTHING reminded me of Batfamily, it was like 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon only, like, 3 Degrees of Batman (I actually tried this with a friend once, and yeah, LITERALLY 3 DEGREES FROM BATMAN AT ALL TIMES), so I was like hahahahahahaha this song reminds me of Tim if he wasn't just slightly a creeper but ACTUALLY SCARY DANGEROUS PSYCHOTIC hahahaha wouldn't that be funny?" And three days later I had what will probably eventually be 40k of Scary!Timmy plotted out in intricate detail.
Scary!Timmy is not your friend. Scary!Timmy knows that Dick loves him, he's just waiting for Dick to notice. Scary!Timmy sent Dick a severed finger in the mail.
The title is half a Placebo song, half a private joke hahaha I have a sick sense of humor. I love this story, and I need to finish it or Scary!Timmy will find me and do something to me that I will not like.
