Title: An Innocent Cicisbeo (3/6)
Characters: Clark Kent/Bruce Wayne; Wonder Woman, Perry White, Alfred Pennyworth
Fandom: DC Comics
Warnings/Spoilers: None
Rating: R
Word Count: 4600
Summary: Kal deals with the aftermath of his confrontation with the Earl of Gotham, and Bruce deals with some unexpected complications.
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.

A letter from the Earl the morning after last night's debacle! He certainly hadn't wasted any time, thought Kal glumly.  )

Kal Starr had become everything Clark Kent had not been: polished, urbane, stylish and witty. )

Across the way, Steve Lombard was dancing with Oliver Queen and Lady Dinah Lance in turns, and it was anyone's bet which of the two--or both together--would be accompanying him upstairs later. Catherine Grant was sitting on a loveseat with a politician's head in her lap, listening raptly to his discussion of the hardships of his work as he twined a lock of her golden hair around his finger. Lois Lane was everywhere at once--pouring drinks, playing the pianoforte, getting into spirited arguments about women's rights with delighted pinks of the <i>ton.</i> )

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. )
