So, sooooo, much smarter. He plays long games.
Damian lashes out and he does it with such sharpness that it looks like soul-crushing and enjoyment. But even if he only experiences it when no-one's around, he'll still feel bad.

Damian blinks, wondering why Colin is stopping, then realises and starts moving as quickly as he can. Which is pretty quick, all things considered. Certainly faster than a human.
Sloppily.

And has many faces. Including, these days, an attractive fully grown face that people respond to in very interesting ways.
It'd be even worse when it's Dick's soul he's crushed.

And Damian was no slouch to begin with, so it's like Colin blinks and the cage is half-empty, and blinks again and Damian is carrying out the thin mattress that was all that would fit to soften the floor.
Making it very obvious what he's doing, no doubt.

Could you imagine, though? The public would eat it up. He was the friendly vampire child, proudly out of the coffin and doing what he can to help the city. And then he tested his own batch of stuff on himself, selflessly (allegedly) and it only worked long enough to make him RIPPED AND BEAUTIFUL before he reverted back to vampire (allegedly).
He'd be so /guilty/ but completely unable to admit to that guilt.

It should be ready for destruction now, Colin. Damian glances back at the cage just in case he forgot anything. Yes. It is ready now.
He'll think he's being subtle.

Bruce will have to be super careful, /super/, about allowing anyone close to him during his teenage years, or they'll prove that wrong in a second. Everyone will know he's properly human. In any case, once he's grown, talk about your eligible genius hottie vampire bachelor. They'll be calling him Edward in the press. Or Louie, to go old school.
Someone will have to teach Damian the words.

Colin touches Damian's arm. Thanks, Dami. Then he whips away and tears in to the bare metal, always careful to stay outside. He'll be /vicious/.
For Damian, that is subtle.

Oh, no. No /anyone/ while Bruce is teenagery. He'll hate it, but it'll be his own rule. And damn the hormones to hell but he /can/ keep hold of his discipline. So he'll rub himself raw and feel like he can't talk to anyone--almost especially Damian, because he spent all that time being so superior--and teenage life will be hell. But he won't spend any of it interacting with real people.
It'll be Dick. By apologising for making Damian feel like he had to do that, say those things, so loudly.

Damian sits down on Colin's mattress and, very sneakily, picks up a blanket to put to his nose while he watches. He thinks that Colin is very impressive.
He's a special boy.

Just his family. Who aren't real, maybe, not to Bruce, because they've always been around. He can still be with them, around them. Except... well, they're all gorgeous. And funny. And charming. Bruce had a type of person he liked around him even as a child vampire.
Once Dick comes out of the zone.

Colin won't notice Damian's nuzzling. He's too involved in taking apart his nightmare. He can't have this thing lurking in the basement while he tries to live his life. He wants to try and forget these people ever did this to him. He can't do that while this is even in pieces. It needs to be melted down, but they can organise that after he's taken it apart. Someone can take it to a facility.
Colin kind of likes that Damian doesn't do subtle.

They're his people, but real people are outside of their world. Outside of the manor. People who have regular lives and those people they help. He'll interact with them but knowing, academically, that they're all beautiful as a perpetual child is another thing entirely from realising that Jason has a show stopping smile if he ever bothered to actually smile genuinely, that Tim's hair puts shampoo commercials to shame, that Dick is in /perfect/ physical condition and has an obscene walk, that Barbara's laugh makes him warm and shiver at the same time.
He might be there for a while, too. Damian would just yell and storm off. Someone would have to find Dick.

Damian will get--he'll do it at a later date. He'll do that. Would Colin like to perhaps make it into something?
Someone has to.

It's gonna take him a while to learn control in the face of hormones. That's hilarious.
Tim would find him. It'd be Tim or Alfred. They'd always be able to sense it when a Sentinel in the house is zoning. It's like a blank empty emotionless spot.

Not something that will ever be inside the Manor ever again. Colin shudders again. Thanks, Damian, he appreciates it.
Subtle is confusing. They don't need any more confusing in their lives. They deserve something that's simple and obvious.

It'll be a wild ride for everyone. Especially since he's technically still in charge but he's all /moody/.
Aw man. I feel really bad for Dickie now.

It's nothing. Damian knows that some people like to carry pieces of their previous prisons, as a reminder that it is conquered and they hold it, not that it holds them. But it is Colin's choice, and Damian will dispose of it.
That's about the size of it. Despite all Damian's training in spy and assassin arts, he's a bit bull-headed.

Sometimes he will absolutely give orders that will not make sense.
Dick really would be an amazing Guide. Jerel probably thinks that all the time, that their positions should be swapped. That Dick feels so much and so deeply, he'd be... incredible. He already is incredible, of course.

Colin surveys the bent and twisted pieces of metal. He didn't conquer it. Not really. He let it conquer him for a long time, and then Damian made it bearable, and then Tim and Damian got him out. He barely did anything except survive. It's just -- bad, you know? It's bad. He doesn't want this badness anywhere near him.
Only when it comes to dealing with people he actually has to let /live/. Ugh. (Heh.)

They'll be confused for a while and then they'll start laughing and being all ~knowing~.
And you know zoning is a special kind of hell for Dick. One sense over and over and over and nothing nothing nothing nothing else and over and over and over and can't move can't communicate can't feel anything else can't feel, trapped in a single sensation until he loses himself.

Colin is currently in the process of conquering it. Damian wasn't speaking emotionally. He meant that Colin has it demolished. By his own hand. Damian hastens to add that he's not trying to change Colin's mind. He just wants Colin to see what he is doing. It can't hold him any longer.

Which will drive Bruce nuts. And Damian, too. They'll develop at around the same rate.
Coming back would be painful. The senses crashing in, the emotions rocketing back. And one person there to catch him who might not be all okay with him grabbing them in desperation.

Colin breaks down the last of it and holds the last couple of bars in his hands, twisting and bending them and finally dropping them on the floor. Damian's right. He did demolish it. He made it not exist any more.

Damian will have the added benefit of getting noogies and patronising hair musses, though. Can't do that to the veritable general of their weird little battalion.
He would have to learn to come to even senses quickly, quick enough to hold himself calm. Once he's out of it, he can go to his air-filtered room with white noise generators and sheets with unreasonable thread counts and shake until he can pretend well enough that he's okay.

Exactly, Damian says. His tone is bright, for him. It's rather vague and flat for a regular 15 year old. How does Colin feel?

Which Damian will find /extremely/ unfair. And complain bitterly about. Mostly to Colin and Titus, who will listen with sympathetic ears and flopping all over Damian.
Those are the times when Tim will maybe -- after a little while -- follow Dick inside his room and sit carefully on the edge of his bed and rest a hand on Dick's back or side or hair. Stiff and careful, but -- he can't ignore a Sentinel in pain. And especially not Dick.

Colin kicks a couple of the bars away, then steps towards Damian and picks up Rory. He doesn't cuddle him like he used to, just hangs on to him. Better, he says, firmly. Much better. Less jittery. He holds out a hand for Damian to see. See?

And even when he's vampire again he won't be as strong as he is! It's unfair! Damian's the only master vampire left here! And they won't let him even feed! Tt!
Even without being a Sentinel, that would mean the world to Dick. Just contact. Just to remind him that he's not alone, that he's alive, that he has people he loves.

Damian takes the blanket away from him, not making a big deal out of it in case Colin thinks he's a weirdo, and stands up. He takes Colin's hand and turns it over and back. Food and closure. Perfect combination.

Well, they wanna keep Damian safe. They probably think, Colin says frankly, that if Damian starts feeding he won't be able to stop. They're wrong, Colin thinks. /He/ thinks Damian would be able to stop. Damian has always had incredible control.
Tim understands that. He finds it difficult to provide. But he understands it. Dick is practically screaming out for it, but silently, with his emotions. Tim is glad to provide even a little bit of comfort.

Colin doesn't think he's a weirdo. Colin scents stuff all the time. It's normal behaviour to him, it won't really click that it's different for Damian because Damian's a vampire, not a shifter. Colin smiles at Damian. So now it's a shower and sleep. And then Colin might feel like a real person again.

Before he arrived here first, his mother had taught him that it was honorable to drain something or someone completely. When he did end up here, that marked him out as--dangerous. Understandably.
Tim will hopefully realise how much milage Dick can get out of just a little contact. He'll feel so much better even with Tim sitting near him.

Damian just misses the warmth of Colin's smell. He nods and looks down at the stuff he pulled from the cage. They can take some of this with them now and Damian will return for the rest while Colin's showering. He may sleep for as long as he needs to.
Compassion, yes. Understanding, not always. Gentleness, probably not.

Colin cocks his head. Why was it honorable?
Tim can sit here as long as Dick needs. As long as it takes for that horrible empty gnawing feeling to go away, too, which will be longer than Dick will admit he needs, I'm sure.

Colin picks up a couple of the things, comfortable things with his scent on them that he's fairly sure don't have to go back to their original owners. Damian will stay close by? he asks, softly.

The donors that his mother had acquired had pledged their lives to service of the Al'Ghul rule. If Damian didn't drain them, she said, then it was like shaming them. That their lives weren't good enough to take, not honoring their choice in service. Damian can see, now, how that seems a little unreasonable.
Dick won't let Tim spend his whole day sitting beside Dick in the hope of getting rid of /that/. That's there to stay.

Damian will be across the hall, once he's fetched the rest of these things.

It definitely seems -- Colin hesitates. Unsustainable. Like, their reward for being so loyal is to die? That's not a great reward. And you've always gotta be finding new people. There's only going to be a limited number of people who are happy to be drained to death. But Colin can see the idea. He can see what Damian's mom -- mother meant.
Tim is patient and rock steady. And he wouldn't be much of a Guide if he left Dick in distress. He wouldn't be much of a brother, either.

Colin breathes out. Good. And -- he breathes in, and out again. If Colin needs to. If Colin needs to, can he come see Damian? (climb in bed with Damian is what he means, but he can't just say that)

Damian smirks a little. It's a great reward. Some of them wish only to die for the reign of the Demon's Head. And a limited number, yes, but...not a small one. Anyway. That's the past. And, as it happens, an evil one. Who knew.
No, no. Dick won't /let/ Tim spend the whole day fretting over him. If he's okay, then he's okay and Tim can get on with his day and everyone's happy.

Damian piles a bunch of clothes and pillows into his arms, then looks at Colin. Of course he can. That invitation was never revoked. (That's what Damian hopes he means, but he also knows that he hopes too often for the impossible.)

Colin shrugs. It made Damian part of who he is. Not all of who he is, because Colin likes to think he's had some hand, he teases lightly. But it did contribute. So it couldn't be all evil.
That would work except you can't fake-out a Guide, even one as stunted as Tim believes himself to be. Tim won't /visibly/ fret, he knows that'll just make Dick upset. He probably brought his tablet with him, to do something while he comforts Dick.

Colin breathes out again, this time in relief. Thank you. Thanks. That helps. That will help. With nightmares and, and loneliness, and getting used to a big space again. (Sometimes it's because he's made the thing impossible himself.)

Colin certainly had a hand in the parts that are not all evil.
And every so often he'd tell Tim that he's been here for ages, isn't he bored, shouldn't he be with Steph or something, go see a movie, he's like 16, go have fun, Dick will give him the money for popcorn, Dick's fine now.

Damian stands for a moment, awkwardly trying to get words out of his mouth. Yes, he says after a moment too long. Yes, that will help with those things. (Almost all the time.)

Way to avoid the rest of what Colin said, Damian. Colin grins at him.
And Tim will just turn a page and rub Dick's arm gently. He won't even say he knows that Dick is just saying that, like he's been saying it for hours. Can't fool the Guide, Grayson. Not until the Guide gets tired or overloaded and needs to take a break, anyway. Wouldn't happen with your own Guide, but it would with a Guide who's working to be compatible with you when they really aren't.

Colin bites his lip. Did he say too much? Sorry. (Well. Sometimes other people make it impossible.)

He was...diplomatically disagreeing. It didn't work.
Yeah, and one day Tim won't be around to work on being compatible for Dick because he'll pair up with some really cool Sentinel and Dick'll have to fend for himself. So he might as well pull up his freaking britches now. Tim has to get out there. Walk around a lot. He'll end up pinging some radar, finding someone. Dick gets a bit dreamy. Oh, man. He can't wait to see Tim all happy like that.

No. ...no. Damian simply--does not sleep well. Colin knows that. It will benefit them both. (Maaaaybe. But Damian usually gets blamed for it. The only thing he doesn't think he has a hand in is the fact that he'll never see his parents not fighting. That has nothing to do with him.)

Colin's had a lot of experience talking to Damian. He grins wider.
Hey, Tim says. It's entirely possible Dick will find his Guide first. Especially if he takes his own advice. But until then, Tim will help Dick. He's not going to just leave him.

Colin's expression falls. Yeah. Yeah, the last time Colin remembers sleeping well... (Even when they make it about him.)

He is probably the most qualified to talk to Damian, now.
Dick rolls his eyes. He's older than Tim. That means that even if he finds a Guide tomorrow and Tim finds his Sentinel the day after, Tim still found his match first. But that doesn't matter because Tim wouldn't be leaving him. He'd be going to have fun. Dick flipped out, he owns up to that, and Tim looked after him. He's pretty much the best.

Doesn't matter, Damian says quickly. Does it? They will sleep well tonight. Come along, then. He can shower in the cave or upstairs, but if he does so upstairs then he won't have to walk far before he can sleep. (He's just a weapon they use against each other. He's used to being a weapon, weapons are impartial.)

Qualified? Does Colin have a degree or diploma or something and not know it, he teases.
Tim puts his tablet aside and takes Dick's hand in his. Dick didn't flip out. He zoned. He's hurting. Tim can't go out and have fun while Dick is hurting.

Upstairs sounds good, Colin says. He's not coming down here for a little while, he says, looking around the big black, the damp shadows. (Colin treats him as more than a weapon. Or less than one. Just a boy.)

Yes, but his diploma is only recognised within Wayne Manor. Apologies.
Dick squeezes Tim's hand and smiles tightly. He can't be the reason why Tim ends up holed in here with a Sentinel he isn't supposed to be helping. He's not saying that he doesn't want Tim's help. He needs Tim's help, and he really appreciates it. But he cannot be that reason, Timmy.

He needn't do anything he doesn't want to, Damian tells him. Not for a while, anyway. He starts walking up the steps with his arms full. They managed to get a lot of the stuff. He might come back down later or the next day, it's not hugely important right now. (Only him and Dick do.)

Wait, so, when he and Damian go out to get milkshakes or whatever, then Colin isn't qualified to talk to Damian anymore?
Dick is being very dumb, Tim says gently. He squeezes Dick's hand back. Right now, Dick /is/ the Sentinel Tim is supposed to be helping. Dick is a Sentinel in need. Tim is a Guide. There you go.

Colin scampers up the steps after Damian with a couple more things than just Rory in his own arms. He really, really appreciates it, Dami. (That little club will widen, eventually. When other people open up their dumb eyes.)

Damian laughs quietly. No. Damian just meant that it is not a qualification that will yield him any other career than 'Damian translator'.
He's not zoning. He's not in need. There you go.

Damian's hands twitch in the sheets and clothes in his arms at the nickname. As he said before, Colin, it is really the least he could do. (Alfred catches on pretty quick. And Stephanie just doesn't think any kid should be treated as anything but a kid, but she isn't around a lot.)

so I'm probably going to sleep soon, I'm hormonal and exhausted. Maybe one more sweep? We'll see at the end of the next XD

Colin laughs, too. Hey, that could be lucrative. There's a lot of people who want to talk to Damian. All those society mothers, Colin points out, still teasing.
Tim rubs Dick's hand. No lying to a Guide, he admonishes gently.

And Colin's told Damian, the least Damian could do is stay at school and not care. Damian's done a whole lot. (I can imagine she'd be pretty pleased to hear Colin's out of the cage. She wouldn't have stuck around long after Bruce refused to let Colin out.)

Oh, Colin would not be so cruel.
Dick sighs. What about him is really crying out for help right now? He's not lying.

Damian exhales shortly. He doesn't think this is something they'll agree on. (Well, she was there helping out. But if Bruce is a dick about it, there wouldn't be anything she could do so she would have to leave.)

yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay isn't that FUN
okay yeah I am pretty out of it right now. I think I'll just listen to podcasts and pass out. HAVE A GOOD HOLIDAY~ <333

Colin means, he could be Damian's translator. His go-between, he laughs. So Damian never has to talk to them directly.
Dick. Come on. Tim shifts uncomfortably. Tim's not the most incredibly gifted Guide ever, but he can feel what Dick is feeling, especially when he's so close. Especially when he's touching Dick.

/Damian/ is not that cruel. He would not subject Colin to them.
Dick's smile goes from tight to amused, all fake. Yeah, Timmy, he's lonely. And he just got yelled at by a 10 year old and lost all semblance of himself for---how long was it? Doesn't matter. All those things are true. So Tim's gotta see why he doesn't want Tim to get in a rut as well, right?

Damian is so considerate like that.
Dick, Tim's goal is not to fall into a rut, but to get Dick out of the rut. He sighs and runs his hand down Dick's arm, feeling the ache in Dick's chest as acutely as if it was in his own. Damian's a little jerk.

They haven't managed to, yet. Colin gives him a wry grin. (I wonder if anyone ever pointed out to her how inseparable Damian and Colin were before she showed up. Anyway, Alfred got hurt. Of course Bruce was being a dick about it.)

Ah, yes. That is what they call him; the considerate one.
Leave him alone, he's a good kid. Life's just a little hard on him. Tim's got to feel how much better Dick feels from that extra reassurance in touch--but also his guilt. Dick knows Tim's not hot on excessive amounts of contact.

Damian side-eyes Colin good-naturedly. (I bet Jason would tease her about it, but I doubt she'd take that seriously.)

Is Damian talking about the society mothers? Because from what Colin's seen, mostly they call him the mysterious one. They read too many tabloids.
He's not a great one for too much touching, no, but this isn't too much, and what's more, Tim's the one in control of it. The control is the important thing. Just because life is hard on him, Tim points out, doesn't mean he has to be hard on everyone else.

Colin laughs. He nudges Damian with his hip as they walk along together. ('aw look you broke up the wonder twins' when Damian is following her around one day and Colin is resolutely on the other side of the Manor)

Damian smiles. No, he was attempting to make a joke. Then he realises what Colin said and groans. 'Mysterious'. Tt. What a thoroughly enchanting way of saying 'illegitimate'.
He's a kid. It's how he deals with it. Jason was kind of the same, but with more cusses.

Damian may actually smile properly. Colin's laughing and playing around. That's promising, that means he might be okay. It could all be okay. (Who's going to take that seriously? Not Steph. Poor Jason, always the Cassandra, never the Pythia.)

I am once more for bed, driving by with Mitz ramblings and loving Dicks. Though both have loving dicks. I HOPE TODAY WAS OKAY I have a presentation to give in the morning and I hate everything and then I have an exam on Thursday and I hate everything GOODNIGHT <333

Better than 'bastard', Colin shrugs. 'Mysterious' also means, like, handsome? Desirable, he adds, nudging Damian.
(Assuming this is before Jason comes back --) Tim doesn't know much about Jason. But he knows Damian doesn't hang around to get a response, just flares out and immediately leaves. He doesn't care. He doesn't see what he does to people.

Colin smiles more the further they get from the Cave -- especially once he sees Damian smiling. Soon enough it sinks in that the cage is gone and destroyed, and he's on his way to his first proper hot shower in months, and he's got a full belly -- and it feels like his first night in the Manor all over again. (Well if he didn't piss off Apollo all the time...)

Damian smiles and rolls his eyes at the same time. Mm. He's sure.
He knows what it does to people, Timmy. You think he was just born being able to say things like that to people? He learned it somewhere. ...really cruel things have been said to Damian, that's Dick's theory. This is just little D's way of working it all out. That's okay. Everyone needs something.

Damian feels about as nervous as he did on Colin's first night. Anxious, maybe. All the relief of getting Colin out of the cage has passed, taking its adrenaline with it, and leaving him a worrying ball of hormones. He stops in front of Colin's room, hovering a little. ...Damian's room has not been moved. He is still right there, should he be needed. Everything should be as Colin left it. He will need towels. Damian will fetch some from his bathroom. (THAT IS HIS RIGHT)

uggggggggggh ugh ugh why isn't it Friday yet I just want to sing about penises in front of a hundred people and then sleep a lot anyway GOODNIGHT AGAIN :[ <333

It does! Colin laughs. You know, like Heathcliff. Like Edward. He snickers.
Damian doesn't need to take it out on Dick. Dick's never been anything but kind to the little terror, Tim grumps. Even now Dick's defending him.

At least they didn't have the hormones to deal with last time they were in this situation. Colin swallows down a noise at the thought of having Damian's towels. Thanks, he'd appreciate that, he manages to say, instead of 'oh god your towels on my skin, I'm never going to return them' like he wants to. (well, there are consequences to standing up for yourself and not being a mindless peon)

I hope you have lovely dreams, it sounds like you deserve them SLEEP WELL &heaaaaaaarts;!

Edward who? Is he another classic literary figure?
Sure, Dick's defending him. Everyone else tends to forget he's just an angry kid. He sounds so grown up half the time, Dick can't blame anyone for that, though. ...and he does have to take it out on Dick. Dick lets him, doesn't get mad back and doesn't get him into trouble. Dick's his only way of venting, sometimes.

Damian awkwardly pauses, then rouses himself and goes to his room to get the towels before he further embarrasses himself. (goddammit)

it's nearly friday yes good bring it on friday

Colin snorts. Definitely not. Not at all. He's a vampire. Don't worry about it.
And then, Tim points out, Dick ends up like this. And Damian doesn't care. Tim sidles in a little closer to Dick and rubs his hands again, warming them gently.

Colin leans against the door to his room, trying to work up the courage to open it. It's going to be all dusty and dark and it won't smell like him any more. It's not his place any more. Instead of opening the door, he closes his eyes and listens to Damian moving around. That's comforting. (¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

Damian's lip curls. Oh, one of the vampires from whatever trend is gripping the hearts and minds of teenagers over here. You know vampires are now just puberty analogies? Not frightening at all. Tt.
Dick's eyes close before he can stop them, but he does try to snap himself out of it once he realises. Hey, does Tim try to block out Damian's emotions and stuff? They don't get along, so if he can do it then Dick wouldn't blame him. He's just curious.

Damian doesn't take long. He picks up the freshest towels (laundered this morning) and brings them back to Colin. He hopes these will be sufficient. (:[)
