Title: His Untamed Heart
Pairing/Characters: Superman/Batman; Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/Spoilers: None
Fandom: DC Comics
Summary: When Bruce Wayne discovers that the male leads of a variety of romance novels bear an uncanny resemblance to him, he decides to take matters into his own hands.
Word Count: 3700
Note: Inspired by a prompt I saw ages ago, in which Clark uses Bruce as the main character in a novel; as things tend to do with these two, events got...a little out of hand.

Bruce could see himself lurking in each one, like a reflection in a distorted mirror (distorted to make him look ridiculously heroic and romantic, he thought with annoyance). )

Rating: PG-13

Title: An Innocent Cicisbeo (5/5)
Characters: Clark Kent/Bruce Wayne; Wonder Woman, Alfred Pennyworth
Fandom: DC Comics
Warnings/Spoilers: None
Rating: R
Word Count: 3800
Summary: Kal Starr has a sudden and unexpected visitor--secrets are brought to light and much is untangled.
Notes: Written for the Unconventional Courtship challenge, and based on the summary for the Harlequin romance An Innocent Courtesan. "Cicisbeo" was an actual term of the time for a male "gallant and lover" of a married woman...I have manufactured a cheerfully pansexual Regency for the purposes of this story.

There were furtive figures moving around, leading a line of smaller figures, their young frames covered in dark cloaks. Bruce heard a sound of metal against metal as the line shuffled forward, and realized it was the sound of chains muffled by cloth. )

Summary: Kal continues his campaign to seduce Bruce Wayne. Meanwhile both of them--unbeknownst to each other--try to unravel the whereabouts of Cobblepot's thieving ring and save the children involved.

"Cicisbeo" was an actual term of the time for a male "gallant and lover" of a married woman...I have manufactured a cheerfully pansexual Regency for the purposes of this story.

Bruce threw himself into smashing the Cobblepot ring with renewed vigor, working late into the night, training until Alfred found him collapsed on the floor, exhausted, and had to help him to bed. )

Title: The World's Greatest Detective Has a Belated Epiphany
Pairing/Characters: Bruce/Clark, Alfred
Rating: PG
Warnings/Spoilers: None
Fandom: DC Comics
Summary: When Dick Grayson runs off with Roy Harper, Bruce Wayne is horrified--because he knows Clark Kent is on his way to the Manor to tell Bruce he's in love with Dick! Luckily, Bruce is ready to get through this with all the aplomb he usually has when dealing with interpersonal relationships. (Alfred wisely takes cover).
Notes: Basic plot gleefully and unabashedly swiped from Georgette Heyer's delightful short story "A Husband for Fanny."
Word Count: 2200

Clark was going to do something old-fashioned and impossibly gallant like ask Bruce for the pleasure of courting his son, wasn't he? If it were anyone else, he would laugh at the thought, but of course Clark--considerate, kind, cautious Clark--would want to be sure he had Bruce's approval. )
mithen: (Batman Loves You)
Batman 19: Written by SCOTT SNYDER and JAMES TYNION IV; Pencils by GREG CAPULLO and ALEX MALEEV

Superman and Batman haven't interacted a whole lot recently in canon that I've spotted, short of discussing tactics here and there. But this month featured a couple of more in-depth interactions, the first of them in the Batman title.

As most of you probably know, the most recent Robin, Damian (also Bruce's son) died recently. Bruce is, of course, not dealing with it terribly well. So I was really happy to see that Clark isn't steering clear of his friend right now. The first hint we get of that is in the main story by Snyder & Capullo, with this brief exchange:

*wibbles*

This scene pays off later in the backup by Tynion & Maleev, where Superman shows up to talk to Bruce, even though Bruce isn't very interested.

You do realize you can talk to me, right? )

Title: Mask of the Bat
Author name: [personal profile] mithen
Beta name: [personal profile] damos
Characters: Hana (girl!Bruce)/Hoshi (Clark); Various medieval Japanese versions of different DCU characters.
Fandom/Universe: A happy-ending continuation of "Shogun of Steel," an Elseworld in which Bruce is a female ninja and in love with Clark, a warrior from beyond the stars. You can see scans of the Elseworld here (it's a wonderful story!)
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 12,800
Warnings: Descriptions of murders; a child in danger
Summary: In a medieval Japan that never was, a fierce female ninja named Hana and a warrior from the stars named Hoshi fight as part of a team of powerful beings. However, when Hana receives a letter from her loyal family retainer begging her to return to the capital to investigate a mysterious serial killer, she finds herself back in the elaborate and formal court she rejected as a child. Bringing with them the silent orphan girl they have named after the first bird of spring, Hoshi and Hana must negotiate the complicated world of noble Japan, with all of its strictures on class and gender, while trying to track down a killer who strikes in the form of a laughing demon.
A note on names: Hana means "flower" in Japanese; Hoshi means "star."

Hana considered the pain, distinguishing and labeling each separate sensation: the muscle-deep twinge of a slashed calf that had never healed well; the delicate itch of a recent cut to the sole of her foot; the pulling tightness of an old arrow-wound to the shoulder. )

Summary: Clark finds Bruce's teenage costume sketchbooks when helping to clean the Manor attic.
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1600
Note: For [personal profile] starsandsea, the best person in the world to share a birthday with! I hope yours has been wonderful!
Story Note: A long time ago, a blog posted scans from something called "Knight Gallery," which was a book published in the 1990s that was supposed to be Bruce Wayne's sketchbook of possible Batman designs. Well, it was the 90s, so the results were hilarious. I couldn't resist pretending the sketchbook was actually real and letting Clark get his hands on it. All of the lines in italics are taken straight from the sketchbook; you can click on the images to enlarge them!

Bruce was sweating and there was a smudge of soot along one cheekbone. The summer humidity had turned his usually-glossy hair to a rumpled mess of damp curls, and Clark thought he was the most beautiful thing he'd ever seen. )

Lunchtime came, and Clark shared sub sandwiches with Lois, Richard, and Jimmy. Jimmy's woeful love life was the topic of conversation of the day: Lois seemed unable to resist fixing Jimmy up with potential dates, with comically tragic results. )

Nightwing landed lightly on the wall of the compound, his midnight-blue costume blending into the shadows. Flamebird followed, a splash of color in the dark, but as silent as his partner. )
