Time Stamp Meme!

Give me one of my stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future (after the end of the story), or sometime in the past (before the story started), and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

The Good He Did Not Do, two months before and/or [whatever, I'm greedy!] The Danger is We're Dangerous, two months after. :D

FILL: Reminds Me I'm Alive [Batman: TAS, Harvey Dent(/Bruce Wayne), PG-13]
(Timestamp for The Good He Did Not Do! Which I am really glad you asked for, actually, because I really meant to get some Harvey/Bruce in there and ended up largely failing. So, yes, a chance to fix that! :D)

--

He’s always liked Bruce.

Liked, obviously, because they’ve been friends before Bruce’s parents were killed and you can’t go through all those years without becoming a little fond of somebody. But also… Liked - that very specific kind of liking where you can’t stop thinking about them and want to be around them all the time and would do anything to get a single smile.

(He blames Bruce entirely for his sexual awakening, actually. When they went swimming one day, just before Bruce mysteriously took off for all those years, and he looked up at exactly the wrong moment and caught an eyeful of those abs and thought huh, maybe not quite so straight after all.)

It’s just… Well, he never really thought he had a chance. Bruce was fond of him, but seemingly only in that way that develops after several decades of knowing each other. He ‘only’ thought of him as a friend. Or, far worse than that, a brother who it’d be a downright sin to do anything more than smile fondly at. Kissing, out of the window. Blowjobs, not even a possibility. Sex, a concept unheard of between them.

…Or, at least, so he thought. Until all this trouble with Big Bad Harvey, his highly unpleasant alterego, started. Until people started to notice his odd behaviour. Until Bruce cornered him at the fundraiser, laid a steady hand upon his arm and stared at him in a way that was very hard to mistake.

(“I’ll do anything to help, Harvey,” he’d said, lips curving in that very particular way that’d always made him long for a dark alleyway and a few hours of privacy, “Anything. You just need to ask.”)

And now he’s not so sure. Now he’s confused, in a way that should be annoying but that is actually the sweetest thing that he’s ever experienced in his whole – often pleasurable – life. He’s worried, he’s unsure of himself, he’s thrilled, he’s hopeful in a way that makes his heart feel several times too big for his chest-

And he’s thinking: maybe he actually has something to look forward too, once he recovers from all this.

Eeeeee, no problem! :D I'm so glad you liked it! I meant to write at least a little Harvey/Bruce for the actual prompt, or actually ANY HARVEY AT ALL (go me, so good at planning), but somehow failed in actually getting around to it. So I'm glad that I finally managed it here! :D

They are so sad and sweet, though. :( Poor Harvey. He really is probably the second saddest villainish person on BTAS, and that is saying something.

FILL: Lure You Into the Dark [Batman: TAS/Marvel Movieverse, Selina Kyle/Natasha Romanov, PG]
“So,” Natasha offers, sounding rather amused, “you got out of prison, then.”

“Of course I got out of prison,” she purrs, and jumps down onto the balcony – lands smoothly, and straightens in a way that she knows looks professional and just the slightest bit sexy, “what do you take me for?”

“I’m sure you don’t want to know.”

“And more than that,” she continues, taking a sauntering step forward and ignoring any obstacles that may present themselves in her way – she’s never been a woman for obstacles, they grate on her in the least pleasurable of ways, “what do you take Arkham for? It’s basically a revolving door system, a holiday camp where the villains of Gotham can pick themselves up after the latest fall and get ready for better things.”

“I gathered,” Natasha says wryly – but does, at least, finally start to look interested. She takes her own sauntering step, looks up just slightly with a small smirk curving her ever so pretty lips, “but, with Batman, surely that’s starting to change…”

Darling,” she drawls, and has the pleasure of watching that smirk go the slightest bit more genuine, “Batman likes the system, just as much as we do. You don’t think that he’s developed a fondness for all the insanity around him, after all these years? Now, tell me – where’s the champagne?”

And Natasha looks up at her for a long moment, assessing…

“Second cupboard on the right, in the kitchen,” allows her smirk to grow, spreading across her face like the Cheshire Cat – yet another positive, he always was her favourite childhood character, “promise to tell me more about Batman if I also show you where the Vodka is?”

“If we have time, my dear, if we have time…”

omg this is so great. You write both their voices so well and I can just. So see these two becoming friends with benefits. Selina showing up at Natasha's house and they drink and mess around and then Selina probably runs off with Nat's watch or something because OLD HABITS and all that. Thank you!

Thank you! :D I was a bit worried about my Natasha voice for this, so I'm glad it actually turned out alright!

And yes, they totally become friends with benefits who drink and make out and make everybody else jealous with how awesome they are. ^^ And Selina keeps stealing stuff from Nat, and Nat keeps taking her back to Batman and rolling her eyes, and they're both totally cool with it and- yes. I shall stop now. <<
