Author has written 14 stories for Nightwing, Batman, and Batman the Animated Series.
In the comments of one of my recent stories, a reviewer asked “Why’s it so much fun to hurt Dick?” I’ve thought about that question a lot and the first thing I came up with was, well, I’m really good at it. LOL. But to be fair I write in other genres, also. I've written: comedy, action, suspense/thriller and romance. Hurt/comfort is what comes to me easily and I think this is why:
We see these guys, they’re just human. They’re rough and tough and we see them fighting with injuries, fighting while they’ve got the flu, fighting when their personal world is falling apart around them. They take down super-villains and fight alongside metahumans. What we don’t see much of what it’s like behind the scenes, after an injury or a fight goes south for them. Their vulnerable side. How they care for each other when one is down. How the big, bad Batman feels and might react when faced with his greatest weakness, which I truly believe is Alfred and the boys he’s taken in and calls his family. It intrigues me, to see what I consider the unseen father/son relationship Bruce has with his boys and, being emotionally constipated like Bruce is, the only way we really get to see that is when he’s deeply concerned for someone. I believe it gives them a deeper character depth. I like that so I write it.
