So I put together a sort of TimKon Starter Pack of comics that I think cover the base of the Tim/Kon relationship.
This works best if you have an idea of what’s going on in the universe in general, but I added a little more explanation to this list. A basic reading order is included in the zip. All files are cbr/cbz. Tell your friends, spread the joy, fire up your fic!
Short TimKon Canon Reading List:
World’s Finest Three #1-2 - Tim and Kon’s first meeting.
[Then comes Young Justice, which is optional because it’s not very shippy but it’s super-cute. Then some angst happens and Young Justice disbands.] (not included)
Teen Titans (vol 3) #1-2, 6, 13-14, 24-26, 32-33- these issues have a lot of Tim and Kon interaction and also cover a lot of important plot points that come up in fanfics.
Infinite Crisis #6 (Kon’s death) (optional, mostly here just to keep up with the plot) (not included)
[After Kon’s death, Tim does not deal well and tries to clone him.]
Teen Titans #37- The culmination of Tim’s attempts to clone Kon.
[Then time passes, Tim continues to be super-angsty and quits the Teen Titans and Batman “dies” and Tim becomes Red Robin and goes on a quest to find him, but Kon comes back to life!]
Adventure Comics #3 - Kon goes to find Tim after he returns.
Red Robin #9 - Kon visits Tim in Gotham (hugs!).
Red Robin #20 & Teen Titans #92 - Tim joins up with the Teen Titans again.
??? ..I guess what’s happening is that Conner, who is unaware of Robin’s identity, saves Tim during a trip to Gotham. Bart however, knows Tim’s identity and is aware of Tim’s massive crush, and he procedes to ‘accidentally’ drop hints. Or smth. =u=;;
I was trying to scribble something tgther for the ‘Titans Together’ prompt of of TimKon week today, but yeah /hangs head/ ._. Hah tho this kinda reminds me of the “Tim keeps tripping ‘round Conner” fics. Oh Tim.
Kon doesn’t even realise he’s grabbed Tim’s hand.
"No, no, let me just show you this one thing, come on!’
once you’re TimKon, you’re TimKon for life
"Tim, I think we should have a serious talk about religion."
Tim’s head snaps up, wary and somewhat skeptical. They’ve talked about chicks, they’ve talked about dicks (specifically, each others), and they’ve talked about generally everything. Except religion.
"Well, I wanted to ask you for a moment of your time. Have you heard about your Lord and Savior, Conner Kent? He died to save the world from certain doom, you know, and came back from the- OW, HEY, DON’T HIT YOUR MESSIAH.”
