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: 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. )
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: Pathetic Fallacy
Character: Gotham
Rating: G
Summary: Waiting for the storm.
Notes: for the Halloween comment thing prompt “Gotham devours all its children”. I did say it was the best prompt ever.

There’s a whisper in the streets, tonight, and a shiver of unrest among those most concerned. They look at the sky in unease, cops and crooks both. The sickly yellow of the Bat signal flares like a holy symbol on the polluted sky. At various places in the city, some people are breathing a little easier; in Arkham, two of the psychological personnel turn in their resignation letters, and shrieking laughter pursues them out the door.

Nothing’s changed since yesterday, but everything is different. Tonight a Robin will fly through the city for the first time in too long, and everyone can feel it. A couple ushers their child into a darkened street, the street lamp busted while they were at the theatre, hurrying before the rain tears down the clouds, but they can’t silence the child’s laughter, immodest and carefree.

Gotham smiles a bloody smile. She was looking for a proper gift.
Title: Wake me up
Character: Renée
Rating: PG-13
Summary: No need for a shrink to tell her what her dreams mean.
Notes: for the prompt “Gotham devours all its children”. Spoilers for Gotham Central and Pipeline. [ profile] etrangere, feel free to eviscerate me if I did too badly. D:

Nightmares are nothing new, on the whole. )
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: It’s not a game
Character: Tim
Rating: G
Summary: Halloween was always his favorite holiday. When else could he dress up as Robin and not be laughed at?
Notes: for a comment fic prompt over on dreamwidth.

Two years ago, his father had looked up from his newspaper and asked in a surprised tone if Tim wasn’t a bit too old for that. )
Title: Purgatory
Characters: Dead parents. Martha and Thomas Wayne, Sheila Haywood, Catherine Todd, John and Mary Grayson, Adeline Wilson, Lili Worth, Roger Gordon, Jack Drake. Like I said. Dead parents, mostly Batfamily-oriented.
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Watching over your children from above isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Notes: written for a prompt [ profile] modestroad left at [ profile] comment_fic, DCU, all the dead parents, just because they are dead that doesn't mean they can't bitch about their kids. That’s a prompt that calls for crack. This isn’t it. This is angst turned to the max. Also it's bound to be riddled with grammar horrors. References Gotham Knights #16.

“He’s at it again, Martha,” Thomas says, helpless. )
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. )
Title: Storgê
Fandom: DC
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Gotham loves Batman. Batman needs a Robin.
Notes: "Storgê" is Ancient Greek for “parental love”. The pretentious title is justified on grounds of the fic terrifying me. [ profile] mattador, this is all your fault.

Gotham has a bargain with Batman. )
