The Death of a Duck by wynjas The Death of a Duck by wynjas
Just a stupid little comic-style-sketch from my drabble "The Peas Contact"...

Just so you'll know what it's about...
A crack fic based of "The Peace Contract". Basically Slade have magically brainwashed the Titans except Robin. Robin’s mind has ‘regressed’ though, a psychological defense mechanism, so, in this drabble, he is basically a 5 year old in a teens body…

Extract from it below, set in Titans TOwer, while Lex Luthor is visiting:

“Slade! Uncle Lex! Wanna play pirates?” a happy boy asked them from his place on the floor.

“We are quite busy, Robin. Besides, isn’t it time for your bath?”

“No! I don’t want to!” the boy had gotten to his feet and now stamped his foot.

“Oh, you know you will smell like a garlloonk if you do not take the bath, Robin!” Starfire told him sternly.

“Besides, dinosaurs LIKES the smell of garlloonks…” Slade threatened and Robin suddenly looked a bit unsure. “Come on, my boy…” Slade said soothingly and scooped him up in his arms. “This will just take a minute.” He added over his shoulder to Lex. “I trust you will wait?”

The man nodded, seemingly amused again.

“Oh, can Uncle Lex tell me the bedtime story tonight?!” Robin wanted to know.

“Suuuure he can.” Slade grinned under his mask and gave the man a rather happy look. “And why don’t we let him use the hand puppets Star made you?”

Mr. Luthor winced visibly and now looked pretty unhappy.

Robin yawned and snuggled closer to Slade.

”I don’t wanna take a bath…” he told the room in general again, but without the same amount of conviction.

“If you want uncle Lex to tell you that story, Robin…” Slade warned him.

“But… but… there’s a scary duck!” Robin tried.

“We got rid of that duck WEEKS ago, Robin!” Slade sighed. “Don’t you remember? Starfire blasted it with star bolts, Raven crushed it with her magic, Beast Boy turned into an elephant and stepped on it and Cyborg hit it with his sonic canon, the HIGHEST setting, just as you insisted.”

Robin smiled up at the man at the memory.

”And then you shot it!” the boy added and Slade heaved one of those sighs again.

“Yes... then I shot it…” It must have been the lowest point in his career as a mercenary, shooting that sad lump of melted blackened yellow plastic.

“But… but what if it comes back as a GHOST!?” Robin asked, severely worried once again.

The ghost of a plastic duck? How scary could that be? Slade asked himself before answering.

“No, Robin. Raven did the soul binding ritual, you know. It can’t come back.”

“Never ever?”

“Never ever.”

“Good. I hate ducks.” Robin sighed happily and let himself be carried off to the bath. He wondered if Lex would do the dinosaurs’ voices too? He bet he would.

*lol* it started as a one-time gag in a drabble of mine called "Old Friends", but people commented so much on it that I joked about it a following drabble... and another one... and another... and so on... so it's just a silly thing... ANd there's two versions, really... in the original he saiy that he slipped on one in the bath and nearly drwoned when he was little, and in another drabble I wrote he had quite an scay experience including Scarecrow and a rubber duck almost crushing him (he thought)... but yeah... gag.... ;)
