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: 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: 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: Those things don't just fade away
Characters: Jason, Alfred (Steph)
Rating: PG
Summary: "Fuck the tea, there's a ghost in your kitchen."
Notes: Title and inspiration from “The Delusions of Alfred Pennyworth” (helpful scans here), again. AU around Under the Hood, AU of War Games (Steph died).

Alfred barely pauses at Jason's cursing. )

Title: We don't get drums
Characters/Pairing: Sakura, Ino, Naruto, Sasuke, Neji, and others (Neji/Hinata, implied T7 tension)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: There are two things to wait for: the next letter, and the war to end.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo, theme 'Historical: World War I'. Boche was slang of the time for German, Jean Jaurès was a pacifist socialist leader who was murdered on the eve of the war. Title from “La Chanson de Craonne”, an anti-war song invented by soldiers around 1917; to sing it was an act of mutiny.

The world has come to a fracture, she on one half and he on the other. )
Title: The Truth Beneath the Rose
Fandom: DC
Rating: PG
Summary: The one where Ivy goes straight. Or tries to, the rules of the DCU being what they are.
Notes: takes place some time after NML and Murderer/Fugitive. Inspired by the eponymous song by Within Temptation, though there's no relation beyond the title. Fits the [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo "mutation" square.

This time it's going to change. )
Title: Rewiring
Characters: Cass, Barbara, Bruce, minor cameos of others (Babs/Dick, implied Bruce/Jason)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: David Cain decided raising a cyborg was a better idea than having a daughter. (The inevitable “Man vs Robot War” AU.)
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo, theme 'Future: Cyberpunk'. This is a Christmas tale. I started writing it after Christmas, but it's still a Christmas tale, somewhere between Pinocchio and the Nut-Cracker, I think.

I know a guy who knows a girl )
Title: only my hands to guide me
Characters/Pairing: Hinata, Neji (NejiHina, past others)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: past dub-con
Summary: Juggling family, work, and past mistakes.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo, theme 'Other: Kid fic'. Set in the same universe as Receptionist Duty, Day 37, Evening Shift. Celebrationverse flashbacks liable to happen. Title from “Now Three” by Vienna Teng.

She's lucky enough to be on first shift, meaning that family scenes upon getting home are part of her everyday life. )
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. )
Title: Delusions
Fandom: DC
Rating: PG
Summary: Bruce and Tim never saw the same thing in the Case.
Notes: Terrific Table of Robins, Tim to Jason. Title from the Black & White story in Gotham Knights #34, the Delusions of Alfred Pennyworth.

For a long while, when Batman was training him as Robin, Tim considered Jason his best friend. )
Title: Love is a punch to the heart
Characters: Sakura, Sasuke.
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Three times Sakura decides that Sasuke needs a good solid punch in his pretty, pretty face.
Notes: written for the above prompt at [livejournal.com profile] naruto_meme's 'Three Times' Meme.


Usually Sasuke telling her she's not worth it doesn't make her angry. )
AU, Hyuuga-centered, 'Hilal' = 'light of the moon' = Hinata. 'Nejm' = 'star' = Neji.

fragment the first, fragment the second, the third, and the fourth.

Title: Why Stir the Memory
Fandom: DC
Rating: PG
Summary: Tim never tried to clone Steph.
Notes: Terrific Table of Robins, Tim to Steph. Post-War Games, pre-Infinite Crisis, AUish. Title from Paul Verlaine's An Exchange of Feelings.

Blüdhaven isn't Robin's place. )
Title: Receptionist Duty, Day 37, Evening Shift
Fandom: Naruto
Characters/Pairing: Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Neji; pre-NaruSakuSasu
Rating: PG

So, these three guys walk into a hospital. )
Title: Skin Memory
Fandom: DC (post-Under the Hood)
Pairing: Bruce/Jason implied
Rating: PG-13
Summary: One night, one way Jason can't get his past off.

The girl's fingers brush against the scar when she slips her hand behind his neck. )

Title: The Elephant In The Room
Fandom: DC

Title: Count Your Losses
Fandom: DC
Rating: PG-13
Summary: A long time in the future, a little Bat learns a helpful list. “Bats lose their fights. You know that, right?”


You don't think it's gonna be the victories that define you, right? )
Title: Noble As Dirt
Character/Pairing: Sothe (Micaiah)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: A long time before the wars broke out, Sothe was just a kid living on the streets of Nevassa.

Notes: Second person. Written for [livejournal.com profile] 31_days, prompt "lately, you make me feel..." ETA: inspired by [livejournal.com profile] myaru's Sacrifice.


You didn't even know her name yet. )

Title: No Legends Left
Day/Theme: Nov 2 – hidden and open subcultures
Series: Naruto
Character/Pairing: the girl of chapter 421, Sakura, Naruto, Sasuke
Rating: PG
Summary: Over twenty years after the current chapters, Madara has won. There are no longer Hidden Villages. But there are still ninjas; they just need to be hidden. There's no place left for the legends.

Notes: spoilers for chapter 421. Dystopian future. Written for [livejournal.com profile] 31_days, so this is rushed and drafty and if you'd like to give concrit, please don't think it'd be unwelcome.


The future will take your world away from you. )
