"Joint Custody"-Comic Script Format

I usually don’t post fanfiction here, considering it is not taken seriously by DC or Marvel. However, this story was one of my highest rated on, getting more than ten reviews and twenty favorites.

“Joint Custody”—When even Bruce can’t tame Damian, he turns to the one person who can. Set after Bruce Wayne: The Road Home

“I know.”

“This isn’t a game.”

No, it’s not, but the gear is still freaking awesome. Black cargo pants, a black belt, a dagger, and Maiden’s Glory strapped to my waist and right leg. Across from me, Casia looks refreshed from her time recuperating, her scepter’s fire glowing more intensely than blue lightning. And Lance—Lance is strapped with more weapons than I even knew existed.

He looks once to Casia, his face chiseled from pure diamond. Casia nods once. He turns to me. “Ready?”
