runespoor: close-ups of naruto and sakura's face as sakura looks up and breathes sasuke-kun's name; the word bubble is empty. (sasuke-kun || narusaku is all about)
Title: The Liar
Characters: Sasuke, Naruto, Sakura (NaruSakuSasu-ish, NaruSasu)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: "...And I love you so much, I'm gonna let you kill me...": a confrontation between Sasuke and his old team.
Notes: This is Sasuke narrating, so as usual it's an exercise in denial and selective obliviousness. An alternate confrontation before current canon.

The first time Naruto leaves himself wide open, Sasuke dismisses as typical moron, typical Naruto )
Title: Mercy Kill
Characters: Sakura (gen-like-canon)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: the lies Sakura told herself.
Notes: for the Sakura-goes-to-kill-Sasuke arc. Oh, Sakura, bb.

Sakura puts poison on the kunai because it’s practical. )
runespoor: in the background, dick doing a stand-up while in the foreground Babs faces the reader, frowning, eyes narrowed. (babs/dick otpotpotp)
Title: felt through a phone line
Characters: Babs, Kate
Rating: PG-13
Summary: The best part about being a Gotham hero is mixing business and pleasure. (aka: Barbara and Kate are gorgeous HBICs that have UST-charged, snarky comlink-to-phone convos.)
Notes: for the 2012 rarewomen exchange; I forgot to crosspost this on my actual journal.

the first rule of Bat dating. )
runespoor: artemis and m'gann, in civilian clothes, laughing (yj | idiot teenagers with a death wish)
Title: ellipsis
Characters: M'gann (Artemis)
Rating: PG
Summary: “He killed you. He deserved-”
Notes: spoilers for 2x10, Before the Dawn.

In her head, she writes countless letters to Artemis. )
runespoor: in the background, dick doing a stand-up while in the foreground Babs faces the reader, frowning, eyes narrowed. (babs/dick otpotpotp)
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.

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.

Once upon a time, a great and powerful sorceress sprang magically to life from the pages of an ancient book. )
runespoor: an extreme close-up of jason's maskless, emotionally open face. (oh jay | took me away from you)
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: the sburb house logo (sburb logo)
Title: No Dominion
Rating: G
Pairing: Vriska♠Tavros
Summary: In the afterlife, Vriska has all the luck, Tavros takes chances, and everybody plays to win.

After the third time Vriska's rocket pshhhhhhooes cough and startle, they die out completely, and you have no choice but to stop. )
runespoor: the sburb house logo (sburb logo)
Title: A Princess and Her Hair
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Feferi♥Sollux (Aradia♦Sollux, mentions of others)
Summary: Dating a princess with hair tentacles.
Notes: genre-mixing: body horror + fantasy of manners. for the Bonus Round 1a of the 2012 Homestuck Shipping Olympics. This is tentacle-fic again, isn't it.

Picture, if you will, a violet palace stretching so far, its towers are entrenched into the very streets of the low city, and its arches gleam over the heads of the common people. )
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: 8-year old bruce kneeling in his parents' blood in Crime Alley (down on your knees)
Title: no take 8acks
Characters: Terezi, Vriska (Terezi♠Vriska)
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: yes, assumes knowledge of canon to the end of Act 5 part 2.
Warnings: character death, graphic descriptions of violence, canon-typicality
Summary: You can only kill a god if the death is heroic, or just.
Notes: This isn’t one of the remix things, this is a bad case of Scourge Sisters feelings. For once, my first fic in a fandom is about my OTP.

you're going to do something t8rri8le to some8ody and wish you could t8ke it 8ack 8ut you c8n't! )
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. )
runespoor: in the background, dick doing a stand-up while in the foreground Babs faces the reader, frowning, eyes narrowed. (babs/dick otpotpotp)
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*?” )
runespoor: an extreme close-up of jason's maskless, emotionally open face. (oh jay | took me away from you)
Title: Breaking Pedestals
Pairing: Tim/Jason
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Tim can't reconcile the boy from the Case and the one who broke into Titans' Tower.
Notes: porn battle, prompt Tim/Jason, The Case.

The first time Tim meets Jason, in Titans Tower shortly after Jason's returned, it's like a dream hopped up on Scarecrow fumes. )
runespoor: steph as robin, somersaulting joyfully, while cass uses a grapplehook to try and catch up (batgirl&robin | flying)
Title: Committing Fornication
Ship: Dick/Tim/Steph
Rating: NC-17
Summary: I wrote tentacle fic. Shame is a thing of the past. (porn battle, prompts: tentacles, identity, Robin, smooth)
Notes: this is very much for [personal profile] minoanmiss, because the fic she wrote in DC fandom made (makes) me happy.

Post-OYL setting of a War Games AU where Steph really did die. (alternatively: a never-written fixit fic from when Steph hadn’t been retconned yet to be alive.) The title comes from The Jew of Malta: "Thou hast committed/ Fornication: but that was in another country,/ And besides, the wench is dead.". The more things change.


“Does—does this happen very often?” )
runespoor: 8-year old bruce kneeling in his parents' blood in Crime Alley (down on your knees)
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.

runespoor: an extreme close-up of jason's maskless, emotionally open face. (oh jay | took me away from you)
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. )
