Title: Neither Fate Nor Fortune [on the AO3]
Characters: Barbara (Jason, Bruce, Jim; Bruce/Jason)
Rating: PG-13
Series: Bring on the Night
Warnings: character death, ableism, violence, depression, offscreen underage, and all the content warning that comes with only mildly sanitized vampirism.
Summary: Barbara becomes Oracle, and Gotham's dead Robin is a vampire.

Canon timeline: I'm going with the idea that The Killing Joke takes place some months before Death in the Family. I'm playing loose with the chronology of some of the post-Death in the Family pre-No Man's Land storylines because of reasons.
Inspiration: I made canon soup from sources as diverse as Gotham Knights #43-44-45, Batman: Turning Points #3, Batman Chronicles #5 (Oracle Year One: Born of Hope), the DCAU, the Elseworlds Thrillkiller and Supergirl & Batgirl (spoilers for the latter two), Batman #424, and Gotham Central. I may be forgetting some.

Thank you to Discowing for betaing and cheerleading, to [personal profile] salinea for bearing my regular whining, and to [personal profile] moetushie whose remix of the first fic made me want to go on.

written for the [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang 2012, this fic is accompanied by a fanmix made by [livejournal.com profile] ecto_gammat whose link is pending due to the hurricane.


In Greek mythology, the bearer of bad news has no name. )

Title: disaster in the making
Pairing: Bruce/Jason
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Everyone can see it.
Notes: Takes place when Jason is Robin. self indulgent outsider pov + identity porn.

The girls let the kid hang out. He's not there very often, and they don't target the same customers. )
runespoor: steph as robin, somersaulting joyfully, while cass uses a grapplehook to try and catch up (batgirl&robin | flying)
Title: Turning up the Turbo
Pairing: Bruce/Steph
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Steph and Bruce bond over Steph's persevering desire to drive the Batmobile.
Notes: takes place when Steph is Robin. I think the summary, in that context, is its own warning. (am I kicked out of the fandom yet?)

Stephanie makes no secret of liking the car. )
runespoor: 8-year old bruce looking creepily calm, with the quote "what makes you think I was alone". (the lesson is always canon)
Title: zero is an even number
Characters: Bruce, Tim
Rating: PG
Summary: Tonight, Bruce is Robin.
Notes: zeen gave me the prompt of this softer dcu strip, itself inspired from the softer world strip, the ravages of puberty leave nobody unscathed. Takes place during the Sins of Youth event that switched the ages of the teens and the adults in the DCU, and which happened before Steph was Robin.

The Batman costume is his. )
runespoor: an extreme close-up of jason's maskless, emotionally open face. (oh jay | took me away from you)
Title: in the business of misery
Pairing: Bruce/Jason
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: underage. I think.
Summary: this is thinking it through.
Notes: a softer world: There should be a word for a threat that is also a promise. Because that is what I want you to hold me down and do. There’s this one line I don’t promise I won’t use again, because I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to put it somewhere for two years, and I’m not sure this is the best possible place.

In the kingdom of bad ideas this one is probably heir to the throne. )

Title: Tale of the City
Pairing: Bruce/Dick
Rating: R
Summary: You know what they say about Batman and Nightwing.
Notes: porn battle, Bruce/Dick, rumors, view.

If I know Batman? Course I know Batman. In my bizness it’s, watchacallit, inevitable. )
runespoor: an extreme close-up of jason's maskless, emotionally open face. (oh jay | took me away from you)
Title: Tomorrow For Today
Pairing: Bruce/Jason
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: blood, underage, descriptions of violence, character death, possible dub-con, disturbing content? (that's a very wholesome story I just wrote right there.)
Summary: emotionally crippled billionaire seeks dead sidekick to make him whole again, and succeeds. (Basically, Bruce had a convenient vial of vampire blood to inject into Jason's veins when Jason died of crowbar. It failed, until three days after the funeral Jason crawls out of the grave and stumbled to Wayne Manor.) (italics in the sentence also a quote from Zeen.)

Notes: [personal profile] moetushie requested VAMPIRES at the porn battle. I pillaged your scenario, dear. Hope you like?
Canon notes: Garzonas was the son of a diplomat who walked after raping and abusing his girlfriend, who killed herself when she learned he wasn't convicted. In a fury, Jason went to confront Garzonas, and-- the confrontation ended with Garzonas falling to his death. The question's never been answered whether Jason pushed him or, like Jason told Batman when he arrived, “I guess I spooked him. He fell.” And after that, Jason wasn't benched as Robin.

“Bruce. Bruce, what did you *do*?” )

Title: Ladylike
Character: Bruce
Rating: G
Summary: When he looks at himself in the mirror, he sees a lady in her early forties.
Notes: for the Never Have I Ever Written meme.

Title: Thanks in parentheses
Pairing: Bruce/Jason
Rating: R
Warning: underage prostitution
Summary: the system called reciprocity. hookerfic and identity porn.

Id is good for the soul. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. )
runespoor: steph as robin, somersaulting joyfully, while cass uses a grapplehook to try and catch up (batgirl&robin | flying)
Title: Time is the dealer in second chances
Pairing: Bruce/Steph
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Tell me something only Robin would know. Time travel.
Notes: *shuffles feet* huh, yeah. (:DDDDD) time period: after Dick stopped being Robin, before Bruce met Jason.

She doesn’t stop wrestling even after he has her in a lock on the ground. )
runespoor: 8-year old bruce kneeling in his parents' blood in Crime Alley (down on your knees)
Title: Grotesque
Characters: Gotham, Alfred, Bruce.
Rating: PG-13
Summary: How Alfred compromised with the thing inside Bruce’s soul, from Gotham’s point of view. Alternatively: This is how to co-opt a soul.

Notes: Inspired by this ficlet by [personal profile] marcelo and The Lesson. NOMNOMNOMNOMNOM.

Gotham has little use for monuments. )
Title: Made Perfect Sense
Characters: River Tam, Bruce Wayne
Rating: PG
Summary: Space-time anomalies as leads to team-up.
Notes: prompt wanted Batman and River to be in the same room. I went HELL YES, and wrote a crossover. *pinches self* Title from a Mal quote in 1.03, “Safe”, and applicable to all of these things.

When she moves, she reminds him of Cassandra. )
Title: For I have sinned
Pairing: Bruce/Jason
Rating: PG-13
Warning: mention of past Batman/Robin stuff that some readers may find disturbing.
Summary: Emotionally fraught conversations only happen, like love, when Bruce falls into them, unavoidably.
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] moetushie’s prompt “DCU, Jason Todd/Bruce Wayne, we are the sons of no one”.

Red Hood's tinny laugh rings in his ear, courtesy of the earpiece Jason made sure to leave behind. )
Title: light to his darkness
Characters: Batman, Robin
Rating: PG-13
Summary: In Gotham City, even Robins raise you.
Notes: Technical Pacifist.

”This sucks, boss,” Robin grouches. )
Title: Nothing's gonna harm you
Characters: Bruce, Gotham
Rating: PG-13
Summary: It will be a long time before the scene is noticed; in this part of town people know better than to report shots.
Warning: violence, death, mental issues.
Notes: prompt darling, the shadows I live with are numberless . Oh, and the last line is from The Lesson. And the title is from Sweeney Todd. Which should tell you everything you need to know.

For hours the child kneels in his parents' blood. )
Title: Morale, chum
Character: Tim, Bruce
Rating: G
Summary: You let Barbara choose our costumes.
Notes: for the Halloween comment thing prompt “Batman and Robin dressed at each other”. I produced this.

This was less awkward when we’d switched ages. )
Title: Something sweet and something strong
Pairing: Bruce/Jason
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Jason has none of Bruce's hang-ups.
Notes: time setting? Oh, the happy future that never was. You know, the one where everything is exactly like preboot continuity except no-one's going through too horrible a crisis and Jason's back in the Batfamily and living in Gotham. Title from the Sounds' Rock'n roll.

you know I like it loud / you should know me by now )
Title: Feel so untouched
Pairing: Bruce/Jason
Rating: R
Summary: The best part is the fighting.
Notes: Takes place during UtH. Title from the Veronicas' Untouched, which is a very Bruce/Jason song; I'm not remotely kidding when I call this a PWP without sex.

a PWP without sex. )
Title: You can check out any time you like
Characters: Bruce
Rating: PG
Summary: Something has changed in Gotham; Bruce doesn't know what. Reboot!fic.
Notes: Title is obviously from Hotel California, because there are obvious songs and then there are songs that are made for a specific fandom.

Protecting the city has become... difficult, over the past few months. )
