oh dear

Seen in batfic, a strangely adorable fic seach request:

Searching for fic... feel kind of ashamed asking this, but um... does anyone out there know of any Jason Todd hookerfic?

You know... Bruce picks him up as a streetwise rent boy, that kind of thing?

If it doesn't exist I might have to make it so it does.

...y'know, that kind of fic is not and has never been my thing, but I seem to vaguely recall there may have been FIVE OR SIX MILLION STORIES ABOUT THAT. I love this query so much for some reason; I think it's the degree of sheer innocence in the hesitancy and shame, like a blushing guy asking Oscar Wilde if holding hands with other chaps is really all that sinful. Some of y'all go help a fangirl out, huh?

Robin pondering

::laughs:: I had more or less the same reaction. Not my kind of fic, but oh how cute to ask like that :)

ahahhaah. I"m not even in the fandom, but I could have predicted from the request that this story already exists many times over. It's cute!

I avoid Batman/Any of the Robins like the plague, but I would bet cash money there's already at least one piece of hookerfic out there for each Robin, including one where Dick Grayson has to pretend to be a *female* prostitute during the pursuit of justice. Actually, there's probably a dozen of them on the DCU kinkmeme alone.

I don't quite get the appeal of most hookerfic, but the Pretty Woman fantasy seems to be enduringly popular in fanfic.
