I meant to finish this up as a little bit of a birthday present for elynross
, who has betaed five bazillion things for me over the years, as I know she's in the Batman headspace right now, but *hangs head* it didn't quite happen on time. However, I feel she cannot complain what with cereta
slaving away for her, writing like a fiend.
I highly recommend cereta
's whole Hanging Work series
for anyone who likes Batman even just a little -- I plowed through the whole thing late last night when I should have been going to bed, and couldn't put it down. (In the metaphorical sense. You know what I mean.) It's an AU where Dick Grayson ended up being fostered by Catwoman rather than Bruce, it's really terrific, and cereta
has been posting new stories practically every other day, with, I am assured, more soon to come. Go read!
And to make things even more fun, she's letting others play too: harriet_spy
has written the story Next Friend
, also set in this AU.
This story on the other hand is just a short missing-scene based on Batman Begins
. I figure everyone's seen it by now, but if not, spoilers for the first half of the movie. Belated happy birthday, Ellen! Climbing
Bruce Wayne/Henri Ducard, explicit.
Many thanks to cesperanza
for quick beta!"...the sweet as well as the bitter."
