Story Synopsis: "Is that what I think it is?" Dick asked as he entered Tim's room.

Thanks to Kathy for beta work.


"Is that what I think it is?" Dick asked as he entered Tim's room.


"That depends on what you think it is." Tim didn't even pause in what he was doing.


"Well, it looks like a baby, but I can't imagine why it would be here or why you would be taking care of it."


Tim sighed as he rocked the baby in his arms. "It's a long story."


Dick flopped down onto Tim's bed. "I've got time, so tell me."


Tim shook his head as he continued to rock the child. "Well, I was at Titans Tower, and there was...an accident...and well, long story short, meet baby Conner."


Dick just stared, wide-eyed, at the child in Tim's arms. "Wait, so that's Superboy? Okay, I think I'm going to need the longer version of this story. What accident? How did this happen? How long is it going to last? And why are you taking care of him? Hell, why did you bring him to Gotham?"


Tim sank down into a chair near his desk, and sighed again. "I don't even have all of the details yet, but we're pretty sure it was a magical accident. Zatanna said it should wear off in a couple of weeks. I'm taking care of him, because...well, the girls tried to dress him up, which seemed to traumatize him, and well...do you really trust any of the other Titans with a baby?"


Dick sat up at that. "Well...maybe the older ones. Definitely Roy."


Tim smiled a little at that. "Well, I didn't see any reason to saddle Roy with two kids, and I didn't think the Kents deserved to try chasing after a super-powered rug-rat again. Also, we have the capabilities to deal with his powers as well as his other needs for as long as he is stuck in this state. And yes, I've already discussed the matter with Bruce, and he agrees with me, but he said that Superboy is my responsibility for the duration of his stay here."


Dick glanced down at the smiling baby in Tim's arms before returning his gaze to Tim. "Cool."


Tim glared at him. "My best friend gets turned into a baby and all you have to say on the matter is, 'Cool'?"


Dick grinned at Tim's annoyance. "Aw, come on, we get to spend time with a baby Superboy. You don't think that's awesome? Think about it, Tim. Think about the sheer amount of blackmail material you will have gained after this experience."


Tim smirked at Dick's thought process. "I guess I could see an upside to this, after all. Thanks, Dick."


Dick's smile only brightened. "Anytime, little brother, and I'll be sticking around just so that I can make sure I catch all of the glorious moments of you with baby vomit on your shirt."


"Yeah...I mean, what? Dick, you're not seriously going to...what am I saying? Of course, you're going to use this as a chance to mock me. Well, you better be willing to do your fair share, buddy."


Dick held up his hands in the air defensively. "Hey, it's not my best friend." Tim glared at him, but didn't say a word. "Fine...fine...I'll help."


Tim smiled evilly. "Great," he passed the child to Dick, "he needs changing, and it's your turn." Before Dick could protest Tim walked out of the room.


The End
