'Is it leprechauns?' he asks Bruce out of the blue one cold December morning as they sit together, huddled over the console in the Cave and eating some nutritious slop of a supper.

'ImpMil is on its way, my lord,' Simon replied evenly. 'Ten minutes at the outset.' He didn't add, It's a miracle you're not scraping the both of us off the surface of some rock, and you ought to be grateful.

So, in some alternate universe when K writes Batman Beyond she is actually able to stop. Clearly that is not this universe, because when K writes Batman Beyond in this universe she loses her fingers. One day I will write for active fandoms. It shall be a happy day, full of me never being able to write Inception. One day.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo prompt Other: Mundane. Or, the Fic In Which Terry Does Not Actually Stumble Upon The Cave. Also the Fic In Which Terry Thinks Weird Thoughts About Women, Men, Workplace Attire and Everything.


Fandom: Batman Beyond
Rating: PG
Characters: Terry, Bruce, hand-wavey Powers
Summary: There are, theoretically, other ways to fight crime than in cape and cowl.

4078 words (COUNT THEM!!) and too much Terry-brain-splody for one night.

'Don't walk,' Bruce says to Terry's back, watching him wade out amongst the sharks. 'Strut.' )
karanguni: (BATMAN and NIGHTWING)
Third in the Better Dead Than Lead arc.

So leave me where the kids are all right

Fandom: Batman/Batman Beyond
Characters: Bruce, Dick, Terry
Rating: PG
Warning: Hints of slash. Hints of problematic family relations. Lots of hints, too.
Summary: Dick, boy wonders, and also Batmen.

(Follows on the heels of a 50 year displacement into the world of Terry McGinnis.)

5104 words and more inter-Batclan relationship tsunamis. \o/

You're using your command voice, Dick wants to tell Bruce. Do you realise that? )

[edit:] Ow, do my hands hurt from this "drabble arc". Right, K, whatever floats your boat...
karanguni: (DICK swings weird)
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to call this a "drabble" arc anymore...

And lead is light as a feather

Fandom: Batman/Batman Beyond
Rating: PG
Characters: Bruce, Dick, Terry
Warnings: Assumes RotJ has happened. Assumes comics!history. Bruce, because this man deserves a warning all on his own. Typical Batman Relationships (TM).
Summary: Following his 50 year displacement, Dick learns about all the things that have - and have not - changed in the era of Terry McGinnis.

Second in the Better Dead than Lead arc.

4746 words and I'm not even halfway through the list of tiny things I'm supposed to write and oh god, Bruce, why do you have mental sex with everyone?

It's automatic for Dick to say, 'It wasn't your fault.' )
karanguni: (DICK swings weird)
Writing up the next huge-ass chunk of the Better Dead than Lead arc, which is producing things like:

'Terry,' Bruce acknowledges. Terry holds out a hand to Dick. Dick looks at Bruce. The expression on Bruce's face probably, once translated, means play nice.

I am so going to hell. BUT MOSTLY I AM POSTING THIS TO TELL THE WORLD TO GO WORSHIP [livejournal.com profile] pere_chan. Oh my god, look what she drew for me! LOOK WHAT SHE DREW:

So this is me, dying, because that's Dick in the blue tie, and Terry in the red shirt, and ho'crap. GO. GO TELL HER HOW AWESOME SHE IS.

Meanwhile, you can pick up some more Batman icons from the graphics journal if you want. 8D


Aaand I'll stop spamming your flists now.
karanguni: (BATMAN and NIGHTWING)
This is me, biting off more than I can chew again! 8D 8D Recommended listening for this fic: Underworld - Moaner, from the Batman and Robin soundtrack. Around about 2:32 is where I imagine Dick starting to run really fast and ajlsfkjaslkfj okay stopping here.

Companion drabble-arc other-side-of-the-AU thing to the Counting Down The Hours drabble-arc-thing. Titles stolen from Ted Leo once more, for even greater justice!

Gold is just a trick of the light

Fandom: Batman/Batman Beyond
Characters: Dick, Terry
Rating: PG
Warnings: Assumes comics!canon for Beyond!canon. Post-RotJ, in some fluffy canonspace.
Summary: You're not - allowed - to be a junkie when you - belong - to this - family, but -

1213 words and I have no idea where I am going with this except that there will be grief and a lot of terror and oh god, I am so sorry, DC.

'Is this your idea of a sick joke?' He looks down at the blue stripe across Dick's chest like it's an ugly scar. )
karanguni: (terry MCGINNIS)
Written for Anonymous, who wanted some injured!Terry. \o\ Working on the others. You all can see what happens when I, uh, pledge "400 words".

Living Through The Living

Fandom: Batman Beyond
Characters: Bruce, Terry (gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Because Terry McGinnis is not immortal.

1454 words and a distinct lack of, um, witty summary comments.

He took it. He took it as far as he could take it, and then he took some more. )
karanguni: (terry MCGINNIS)
that I knew would not be there

Fandom: DCAU: Batman Beyond
Characters: Terry\Bruce (oddstroke for potential gen; tomato/tomahto)
Rating: PG
Warnings: Post-Lazarus Pit Bruce. Jason Todd Exists. Gen pretending to be slash pretending to be gen!
Summary Training with Bruce should be a game played by Bruce's rules: should.
Arc: Counting down the hours

1458 words, and Bruce is a really creepy old man - almost as creepy as Terry is, well, saucy. And a wench. The first one in the series that reads like it should.

The thing, Terry thinks desperately, about Bruce is that he always pays you back. )
karanguni: (terry MCGINNIS)
Normal FFVII fic will return when I have more time to think - all the stuff I'm putting out in this time period is like, I don't know, stress relief or something. I sit down, my fingers move, I wake up, and the fic's gone and written itself. 8D

I went looking for some writing

Fandom: Batman Beyond
Rating: PG
Characters: Bruce, Terry, mentions of Dick
Warnings: Universe smashing - replacing toon!Tim with comics!Tim backstory, because, um, comics!Tim is more adorable. Assumes that Return of the Joker has already happened.Ripping off some words from Gotham Knights #10-14.
Summary: Day one was warm-ups and history lessons; day two is about genealogy, and maybe just a little bit about how the entire damn family must have once needed psychiatrists.
Arc: Counting down the hours

1440 words and a lot of Terry wondering just how sane he's going to turn out at the end of all of this. Oh, and a guided tour of, you know. The Ones Who Were.

I went looking for some writing )
karanguni: (dick is HIGH)
Bat!drabble is breeding into an Arc, much like the Bat!family itself. Takes off right after if I told you I felt ageless:

would you tell me I'm not old?

Rating: PG
Characters: Bruce, Terry
Warnings: Me n00b. Terry silly. Bruce caveman. Caveman steal prey and bring back into cave. P.s. Ted Leo I'm really (not) sorry for stealing your lyrics.
Summary: One light warm-up later, and Bruce has to find a place to stash Terry. Terry needs to find a place to stash Bruce's encyclopaedic history.

926 words and Dick Grayson looming! Again! Like a gargoyle!

So, about those three million points for Wayne, again.  )
karanguni: (try your LUCK)
Revision is turning my brain into slush. I haven't written in what feels like a bajillion years. My keyboard feels foreign to me. Also, Batman.

Drabble ahead. Caveat lector: I am not your happy canonical DC fan. I am a sorry little n00b who watched a few episodes of Justice League (/Unlimited), read a few compiled comics collections, sprinted through Batman Beyond, fangirled at The Dark Knight, and who will make 500000 assumptions about Batman and Co. 8D YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

if I told you I felt ageless

Rating: PG13
Characters: Terry, LazarusPit!Bruce. Is that a comma, or a slash? Who knows - who can tell? Bruce is everything all at the same time. I don't think age even matters, for him.
Warnings: Set after the Batman Beyond episode "Out of the Past".

1241 words, and I have a bad feeling about this, master. Please let this (not?) turn into a series. Oh god oh god. Too late. Counting Down The Hours arc.

If I told you I felt ageless )

Need Terry icons and Bruce icons and Dick icons like woah, now.

A universe of unmapped grief and love
And new master light is beyond
The pleiades and plow and southern stars.

O soaring
Icarus of outworld, burn bright
The traceries of known skymarks,
Slide the highway planets behind
Your clear waxed wings.

Go conquer the everywhere left
Beyond your sad confinement
In a predicted bonehouse,
Witch thrown riddle of flesh
And water.

O soar until nothing
remains but great glittering holes
In the black godspun shirt over your head.
