Well, I, for one, am not all that displeased about being back to civilization. Field trips are fun and everything, but showers and three straight meals a day are definitely a nice thing to have available.

So, in typical Wayne-Grayson-Drake, etc. family tradition, I'm pretty sure someone forgot it was his birthday today. Port sort of messed up any awesome party plans, but I figure it's a great opportunity for the ultimate surprise party. Anyone up for some impromptu decorating and cake baking?

[Private to Tim - forward dated slightly to the party]

How was port?

[ooc: Dick is 100% serious about throwing Tim a surprise party like, tomorrow night or right now or something. YOU ARE ALL INVITED it will be in Dick's room (which is one of the Wayne penthouses so therefore is huge and can house you all) probably after dinner, and if people are interested, I'm totally game for putting up a log about it or something, or just assuming people went, cake was eaten and fun was had.]

I guess that could have been worse.

Anyone up for doing something?

[Private to Tim]

So now I have a stuffed elephant in my room.

[Private to Wally]

You seriously didn't know I was seven years younger then you?

[Private to Hayley]

I know this is going to sound weird, but thanks for lying about knowing my dad. Seriously. It was really nice to hear.

[Private to Mal]

[Dick was seriously considering just... pretending all that didn't happen. But. He was raised to be polite.]

I just wanted to say thanks again.

[Private to Bruce]

[The feed clicks on to this song playing with maybe some Dick is thoroughly amused by how clever he is chuckling in the background.]

[There's a short pause between the feed clicking on and Dick speaking.]

My parents were murdered when I was eight. I was there when it happened. It was... [He takes a slow breath.] It felt like my whole life was just falling apart and I had no idea what was going to happen or where I was supposed to go or how I was supposed to live without the two most important people in my life.

But I got lucky, because someone was there that night who knew what it was like to have their parents taken away from them. He took me in, gave me a home and support and made life feel like it was worth living again. I know I got lucky. A lot of kids... A lot of kids lose parents and just end up going through foster home after foster home, and if Bruce hadn't been there, that's probably what would have happened to me. I would have been alone and lost, with no idea what I was supposed to do with my life.

Instead, I got a family. They've helped me become the person I am today and I can't thank them enough for it. I've had an amazing life, even if it's not always sunshine and rainbows, and I love my family more then anything.

... I'll always miss my parents. That hurt never goes away, and there isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about them and wish I could talk to them just one more time, but I...


I wouldn't trade what I have now for the world.

[... Oh crap. Didn't mean to say any of that out loud, to everyone. Fuck you, floods. :|]
