runespoor: steph as robin, somersaulting joyfully, while cass uses a grapplehook to try and catch up (batgirl&robin | flying)
Title: The Queen and the Girl who would be Night – a Gotham fairytale
Characters: Cass (Oracle, Steph, Helena, Leslie, Harvey Dent, Dick)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: ableism
Summary: the Queen of Fables takes over Gotham, and Cass is the hero of this story.

Notes & timeline: goes hand-wavy sometime between Infinite Crisis and RIP. Inspiration from the “Queen of Fables” arc of JLA (JLA #47-49). References No Man's Land and some of the unhappy events post Infinite Crisis (specifically, the Deathstroke screwing with Cass' mind storyline, which I've taken a couple liberties with. I don't know either.) No one's dead, everyone's in Gotham but Jason, Cass is Batgirl, Steph is Spoiler, Tim is Robin.

A huge thank you to [personal profile] silveronthetree, without whom this tale would have no title and a fundamentally flawed ending.

written for the [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang 2012, this fic has gorgeous accompanying art made by [livejournal.com profile] dylogger that you can find here.

The Queen and the Girl who would be Night
a Gotham fairytale

or on the AO3


Once upon a time, a great and powerful sorceress sprang magically to life from the pages of an ancient book. )
Title: Winter Dark
Character: Helena
Warning: gore, I think.
Rating: PG-13
Summary: In the winter of No Man’s Land, the Huntress is more of a watchdog.
Notes: for the Halloween comment thing prompt “Gotham devours all its children”, also known as “the best prompt ever”. I think this theme needs a specific tag.

It’s deep in the midst of winter and No Man’s Land that Helena gives up. )
Title: Advancement Strategies
Characters/Pairing: Helena, Jason (mentions Bruce/Jason as well as various other Bat-issues pairings.)
Rating: PG
Summary: “So what did you do to get welcomed in?”
Notes: Whatboot cracky futurefic.

...I slept with Nightwing, once. )
Title: It could be worse
Characters: Jason (Babs, Helena, Slade)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Five times Jason was mentored by another costumed crimefighter, and one time it wasn't a crimefighter.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo, theme 'Alternate History: Personal life of a character changed'. Also for the [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic prompt, Five times a different superhero took in/adopted Jason Todd. Heavily skewed toward the Gotham crew and the Bat-connections, but not so much that I've written the fic where Steph's mom takes Jason in.

Also: I'm sure there are stories that explain why and how Bruce is a failure. Those aren't these stories. I didn't intend this as a compare and contrast, but as 'what-ifs?' that someone I hope will find enjoyable.

I'm thinking about the tragic endings all these stories could have. )
Title: Eggshells
Characters: various Batfamily
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Five times a Robin was never born.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo, theme 'Alternate History: Someone was never born'. Crit welcome.

You obviously need some help. )
Title: Venn Diagram
Fandom: DC
Pairings: non-graphic Batfamily identity-porn issues aided by Deathstroke.
Rating: R
Summary: Slade has been a witness of the push and pull between Batman and his partners since the beginning.
Notes: I've been trying to write this fic, or something like it, for a year and a half. I've come to realize that I'll only manage to write another version if I post this one first.

Takes place during the nebulous before-Bruce's-death that includes such fun as Nightwing One Year Later, Cass being an evil drugged-up murderer, and Rose in the Titans. Title from the Nightwing #80-#82 arc.

With the first, it could have been a coincidence. )

[DC] Scans

Jun. 20th, 2009 02:12 pm
Posting the links to the scans I posted over at scans_daily in the past two weeks.

One Perfect Moment
Last week was the One Perfect Moment week. Basically, post a moment that you defines and celebrates a character or a relationship, the longest recommended length of the 'moment' being two pages. There were 166 posts in all, many of which being absolutely wonderful, so if you've got a free afternoon I encourage you to give it a look. When I have more time I think I'll do a full post of every perfect moment by character.

My moments tended to be a little controversial, I think.

[Batgirl #50] Cass: This.

[JLA #65] Bruce: What makes a good father.

[Batman #650] Jason: And doing it because--

[Superman/Batman #7] The Bats: Two words on trust.

[No Man's Land #3] Cass: Establishing Character Moment.

Non DC
I was going to post more Franco-Belgian comics, but then I tore my hair out trying to find Perfect Moments and then I wept tears of blood and disillusionment when I found out many comics haven't been translated into English.

Asterix and Obelix: Those Gauls are crazy BFF!

Comment scans
I've also posted some pages in comments, when I deemed they were appropriate.

[BoP #90] Bruce is more than the Well Done Son Guy. (the narrative is done by Black Canary.)

[Gotham Knights #45] Cass is one of Bruce's kids.
This scan will make a lot of lovely sense if you read this post by [livejournal.com profile] lipsofpoison, running from Gotham Knights #42 to Gotham Knights #45 and covering the arc where Jason's death is being investigated by a social worker new to Gotham.

[Nightwing: Year One] Jason got tied up by Bruce. Yeah, those scans.
