| Guest chapter 4 . 8/3
i'm glad this ended well; it could have so easily gone otherwise. Your Conner at the end seems better than he'd begun: a little more confident, less angry, more patient, happier. It's nice to see all the good influences on him: Bruce, Dick, Kaldur, and i even thought i caught a bit of Alfred there.
I think you bring across very well the point that YJ canon was making: that Bruce's mostly-unsmiling but consistent care is a whole lot better than Clark's general friendliness that failed where it really counted. I don't blame Clark for his guarded-ness regarding Superboy, but at least he should have warmed up a little once Bruce had verified that Conner is effectively just a kid - especially given how generous he is with everyone else.
Right from the start in YJ canon it was striking how different Dick and Conner were. everything about Dick screams effortless confidence and security, and Bruce can scowl all he wants, but Dick is clearly happy, a carefully-nurtured and deeply-cherished child. Conner looked like a neglected problem teen from the start, and i'm glad that by the end of this story, he's looking a little more like Dick in this regard.
Thanks for sharing!

Heartbreaking and beautifully characterised, all at the same time. Thank you so much for writing this story, and for not 'fixing' things at the end so it seems like an unthinking happy ever after. It can't be, but it still ends in hope, which is the best part of all.
