Author’s Summary:
For all the blood on his hands, Red Hood was never just a villain. And Nightwing never gives up on family, not for good.

(Or: The one where Dick bleeds a lot and Jason argues with everybody.)

Set in some never-achieved future point in the pre-Flashpoint continuity, assuming Bruce came home to Gotham to roost well within the year and Dick stopped being Batman. After making good his Arkham escape, Jason got Scarlet set up somewhere she wouldn't be traced to him this time, and has been avoiding both Gotham and capes for a while, mostly traveling around assassinating international crime figures.

Review:

I don’t seem to be able to find many words for this one, but All the Roofs of Uncertainty is a really touching fic about Jason Todd trying to reconcile who he is with who he was and what he has done.
