Author's Summary:
"Tim's feelings for his best friend have been slowly forcing their way out into the world, but it's not until Steph asks him to babysit on a night when he already has plans with Conner that everything comes out."

Review:
Tim's plan to finally confess his feelings for Kon seems to be derailed when he pulls babysitting duty, but in the end things might still turn out for the best.

I think my favorite thing about this fic is that it had a lot of elements - a kid, Tim contemplating his life and feelings, romantic confessions - that could have turned the story into a horrible combination of sappiness and purple prose. Instead we get some great Tim introspection and some fantastic interaction between him and Kon, both of whom are very much in character. Ramsey is a delight on his own right - instead of a random kid to add a "cute" element to the story or create a stumbling block for the romantic denouement, he becomes a solid presence and a catalyst for many of Tim's realizations.
