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: 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. )

Title: Eight Tips To Drive Your Kismesis Up The Wall
Rating: PG
Summary: Troll Cosmo's latest article on how to spice up your kismessitude, on your computer today!
Notes: You don’t need to know anything about Homestuck to read and enjoy this, beyond the fact that troll society is extremely violent, and trolls have four romantic types of relationships as opposed to our one. Matespritship is like our romantic love, but said to be based on pity, moiraillegiance is the bond between platonic soulmates who keep one another from going crazy, auspiticing is the relationship between a mediator and two trolls who really, really don’t like one another, and kismessitude is rivalry (hate) with sex. These relationships are called “quadrants”, and ideally a troll is supposed to have all of their quadrants filled. (“pail” is a sexual word for trolls; don’t ask.)

Troll Cosmo gives terrible advice and shouldn’t be taken for the measure of healthy kismessitudes, at all. )
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: Ladylike
Character: Bruce
Rating: G
Summary: When he looks at himself in the mirror, he sees a lady in her early forties.

Title: Talking Therapy
Fandom: Young Justice (cartoon)
Characters: Superman, Black Canary
Warnings: passing references to rape.
Rating: PG
Summary: The kids weren't the only ones in need of counsel. After Disordered, Clark and Dinah talk.
Notes: self-indulgent, likely to be Jossed, and not meant to be used as an illustration of actual talking therapies.

I wrote this to think over Clark's position, and bashing of any character in the comments will be deleted faster than you can say “you tell him, Dinah!” (contains references to the comics that can be understood without previous knowledge.) (watch how I am unable to keep Bruce out of anything.)

“Did Bruce put you up to this?” )

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: Translation Difficulties
Fandom: Young Justice (cartoon)
Characters: Artemis, M’gann
Rating: PG
Summary: Artemis isn’t having the same conversation M’gann is.
Notes: for the prompt “Artemis & M'gann, never leave you”

Artemis shrugs. Her shoulders look thin and pointy; it makes M'gann hurt to look at them. )
Title: Staring Straight
Fandom: X-Men First Class
Characters: Mystique
Rating: PG
Summary: You could call it growing up.
Notes: for the prompt X-Men First Class, Mystique, always only myself. Title from Disney’s Mulan’s “Reflection”.

First she followed Charles' advice. )
Title: Cross-Cultural Misunderstandings
Fandom: Young Justice (cartoon)
Characters: Wally, Artemis, M’gann, Kaldur, Conner
Rating: PG
Summary: for the prompt “Robin and the team, they know Gotham is killing him slowly”
Notes: mwahahaha all the Gotham-eats-her-children prompts all of them.

“He didn't get any sleep last night,“ M'gann says in hushed tones, pulling on her fingers one after the other. )
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: And then we’ll make the rules
Pairing: Naruto/Sasuke/Sakura parading as gen
Rating: PG-13
Warning: mention of child abuse and ephebophilia
Summary: Sakura’s parents run a foster home. Guess which orphans they take in. AU.
Notes: two parts. Title from the Nields’ “This Town is Wrong”; I’ve been sitting on this song for five years, knowing it to be Ino/Sakura, and when I ransack it for a title, it’s T7 OT3. Go figure.

It started like this: )

And then, I was asked questions. )
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: golden ladder reaching down
Character: Regulus
Rating: PG-13
Summary: happy enough for Patronus.
Notes: title from Johnny Cash’s When the Man Comes Around. I am so sorry.

All of Regulus' memories are tainted somehow. )
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: When I grow up
Characters: Damian, Dick (gen like canon: I think it subtexts everyone/Dick.)
Rating: PG
Summary: What do you mean you've never gone trick or treating?
Notes: So sweet I need to go brush my teeth.

It's easy to recognise when Damian has been patrolling with Steph; he always comes home grumpier. )
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. )
