Sorry to ask this, but which Barbara/Diana pairing do you mean? There are a lot of both of those names in the DCU, alas!

Peter Grant/Thomas Nightingale (Rivers of London – Aaronovitch)

Peter/Nightingale
Fandom fusion (Star Trek)

“Ensign Peter Grant reporting for duty, sir!”

He has to admit, as he looks up from his latest pile of paperwork, that it’s a pleasant shock to see so wide a smile anywhere close to the rim.

Coffee Shop

The sad looking man that he’s started to refer to as Nightingale comes in twice a week, orders the same coffee every time and sits with his back to the wall for an hour or two before leaving. Lesley and Beverly bug him endlessly to ask the guy out, but for now he just settles for a freshly brewed cup of coffee and a smile every morning. The guy seems to have enough troubles, and the least he can do is make life a little sweeter as quietly as he can.

Shapeshifters

He wants to be angry at Nightingale, for not telling him how far the magic could stretch sooner, but as he soars though the sky as a bird all he can feel is joy and gratitude.

Pirates

He’s always thought of pirates as disgusting and terrifying creatures, but Nightingale is neither of those things. The man looks at him with honest warmth, treats him with respect and never once acts like he’s somebody lesser because his mother happened to have different coloured skin.

If the only hardship is having to steal a few plates from the toffs that always sneered at him, he thinks he could just get used to this life.

...In SPACE!!

“I can show you the stars,” Nightingale says, and he doesn’t have to think twice before stepping forwards into the blue box. It’s not like life was that exciting on earth, anyway.

Born Another Gender

They were never inclined to let Thomasina Nightingale, the oldest daughter of a monied family, officially learn magic but her grandmother took her aside and taught her it anyway. Screw the established class. One day they would all fall, and somebody would have to be there to take their place.

Schoolfic

Everybody has a crush on Thomas Nightingale, the head prefect and most handsome boy in the school, but nobody has ever got close. Right up until the point where he casually strokes his hand down Nightingale’s arm after rugby and receives a passionate kiss in reply, that is.

Police/Firefighters

Everybody says that being put on desk duty is the worst, but it isn’t too bad when he properly gets into it. The pay is good, the hours aren’t enough to infringe upon his social life and his new boss is as cute as hell. It isn’t exactly what he expected, but it’s pretty damn great nonetheless.

Urban Fantasy

“So... You just staked a vampire mid-backflip, and saved my life in the process.”

“Yes,” Nightingale says, and sighs so wearily that it’s almost like he didn’t complete the most badass feat in the world, “that tends to happen.”

Regency

He’s been to a thousand balls, and thinks that he’s seen every iteration of them possible. The ladies titter, the lords preen gallantly in front of them and a frankly excessive amount of dancing is done. At some point a dowager will inevitably try to force him into meeting her nearest female relative, and he’ll have to make himself a social pariah yet again. At another point he’ll be asked to dance, and will thus have to take his leave without finishing a single cup of wine. It’s really rather boring by now.

And then Peter wanders into the ballroom muttering about ghosts, and his entire life changes in the blink of an eye.

Twelfth Doctor?

Twelve!
Fandom fusion (James Bond)

Nobody is quite sure why they keep agent 012 on the payroll, but they must admit that he is very good at heading off the alien spotters. And the tea he makes is simply divine!

Coffee Shop

“I’m sure that it seemed like a good idea at the time, Doctor. But a dalek gloop latte? Really?”

Shapeshifters

After careful consideration, he decides to buy the “what to do if you turn into a bunny in outer space” book. It would’ve been very handy last time, after all!

Pirates

“Arr, me hearties!” He yells, and gives an overenthusiastic swing of his sword, “I am here to steal your booty and see some dolphins and... Clara, am I doing this right?”

Clara’s groan is answer enough.

...In SPACE!!

The captain of the USS TARDIS absconded with her several years back. But he still, to the bemusement of all, insists upon sending postcards.

Born Another Gender

“Oh, so I’m a woman this time am I? ...Hm, doesn’t actually feel all that different. Oh well!”

Schoolfic

He’s almost burned down the chemistry lab three times this term alone, but he’s still the favourite teacher of most of the students.

Police/Firefighters

“What? No, I’m not actually a... Wait, is that man green? We’ve got to investigate this in further detail! Quick, put on this deputy hat. It’ll be fun!”

Urban Fantasy

They don’t recall his actual name, but they call him the Doctor because he’s wise and kind and the only old one interested in their education. He doesn’t smile much, and there are dark stories about what he did in the blood wars, but his eyes are warmly thoughtful and that’s enough for the pack of young vampires.

Regency

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a mechanical time machine capable of travelling the stars.

Barry Allen! (whatever version)
doreyg
Feb. 12th, 2016 07:46 pm (UTC)
Barry!
Fandom fusion (CSI: Miami)

"It seems like he was murdered at speed," Barry says, and immediately pokes the end of his sunglasses into his eye, "ow!"

Coffee Shop

None of their orders ever end up as what they're supposed to be, but nobody really minds. The server is fast and as cute as hell, and none of the Rogues have any plans to change their pre-robbery watering hole.

Shapeshifters

Turning into a rabbit whenever lightning strikes is somewhat inconvenient, but he's learned to live with it. It's surprisingly easy to do good in the world, when all he has to do is wriggle his little bunny nose and all possible crime stops around him to coo.

Pirates

He used to be the son of a fairly wealthy merchant, privileged and cared for and with no knowledge of the outside world, but that all changed when he attended his first hanging. He doesn't care if he's throwing aside everything that life has handed him, he's going to change the world to something better and no law is going to stop him.

...In SPACE!!

Life on Mercury moves fast, and not exactly in a nice way. There are seemingly a thousand things that can kill you at any given time, and if you don't watch out all of them are liable to fall on you at once.

...Luckily, he's always been good at running.

Born Another Gender

The first time she comes to a halt after running at full speed the entirety of her hair comes crashing into her back and almost knocks her out. She decides, very firmly as she gets back to her feet, that a lot of very functional braids are in her near future.

Schoolfic

Everybody says that he's the smartest boy at Hogwarts, but he's in Hufflepuff. Whenever asked about this, he just smiles and shrugs. There are many more things important than knowledge, and loyalty is the very highest of them.

Police/Firefighters

Fighting the metahumans would be easier if he had superpowers, sure, but just because he wasn't affected in the blast doesn't mean that he can't be of any use. He watches as Mark Mardon is put behind bars where he belongs, and smiles. Forensic science is just as useful as flight or telekinesis or superspeed anyday.

Urban Fantasy

"I cannot believe," Cisco says flatly, with arms firmly crossed, "that you can actually attract a unicorn. What the hell, Barry?"

He can only look up from carefully stroking the unicorn's nose, and give an innocent shrug.

Regency

It's hard to maintain both his lands and fend of the advances of numerous eligible ladies while fighting various villainous foes, but he manages it. Having the advantage of speed and goodness is well worth it, after all, even if he does turn up to the occasional ball with leaves in his hair.

Barry/Len
Fandom fusion (Hunger Games

“I can’t protect you,” he snaps, and sends Barry sprawling back into the snow. Glances around cautiously, watching not only for the other tributes but the cruel eyes of the cameras, “I have to survive this, get back to my sister. You’ll have to fend for yourself, Scarlet, there’s no kindness in the arena.”

Barry, dragging himself up slowly, gives him an incredulous look. They both know that he’s lying, but it doesn’t make it any easier.

Coffee Shop

It would’ve been easier to go into crime, perhaps, but he decided to go down the path of opening a coffee shop instead. The rents are a bitch, the hours are terrible and Lisa laughs every time she sees him... But it’s all worth it, as his first customer – an adorable boy dressed all in red – takes a long sip of coffee and beams.

Shapeshifters

Turning into a polar bear to fight alien slugs isn’t quite his idea of fun, no, but it’s certainly not the worst way he could be spending his time. And it’s all worth it, as Barry turns into a cheetah at his side and laughs in triumph.

Pirates

He’s been robbing rich merchants for years now, but he’s never come across one as pretty as Bartholomew Allen. He tries a smile at the boy, just for the hell of it, and is somewhat surprised when he turns bright red and offers a timorous smile in reply.

“We’re taking hostages this time,” he informs Lisa, who only huffs and rolls her eyes.

...In SPACE!!

The ice giants of Titan are not in the habit of communicating with offworlders, but when a ship crash lands next to their cave Lisa insists upon taking a look. He’s not expecting much, some new parts at best, but when a young officer emerges from the ship dressed in red and looking determined...

Well, that’s all it takes for him to start doubting his entire worldview.

Born Another Gender

Betty Allen is little older than a girl, when she tugs off her cowl, but she can be nothing but impressed. There’s determination, in those wide eyes, and somebody with her background just has to appreciate something like that.

Schoolfic

Making out under the bleachers with the school jock is such a cliche, but it’s very hard to mind that when Leonard smirks down at him and leans in to bite his neck.

Screw it, some things are cliche for good reasons.

Police/Firefighters

In the months after he brings down the bankers, little gifts keep appearing on his desk. He can ignore it when it’s only the occasional cup of hot coffee, but by the time Mick is laughing over full bouquets of flowers he starts to wonder over the advantages of associating with a vigilante speedster.

...But then he remembers Barry’s smile, and is reminded of them all over again.

Urban Fantasy

He knows that he should stake any vampires that he finds in the heart, but when Leonard smirks at him he finds himself unable to pull even his bottle of holy water from his jacket. Surely it won’t be so bad if one gets away, right? Especially one with that good an ass...

Regency

He knows that he’s gone to London to find himself a wife, but against his will he finds himself attracted to the stablemaster. All the ladies around him have their charms, yes, but none that compare to the icy blue of Leonard’s eyes.

Bruce/Wally :3
doreyg
Feb. 11th, 2016 07:47 pm (UTC)
Bruce/Wally!
Fandom fusion (Harry Potter)

Bruce is two years above him, a Ravenclaw and the definition of out of his league... But he doesn't care. Clark sighs over him, J'onn shakes his head in amusement, Diana rolls her eyes - but he knows that he'd march against Voldemort himself, for just a smile from those lips.

Coffee Shop

"I thought I ordered a black coffee."

"Well, yeah. But you looked like you needed a little sugar in your life," the barista, the ridiculously adorable one with the red hair and the nametag that says 'Wally', informs him - and winks so blatantly that he feels downright ashamed for blushing.

Shapeshifters

"So... Batman is a literal Bat man, then?"

Bruce, or the bat that was Bruce just a few moments ago, flutters right up to his face and manages a surprisingly intimidating stare.

"Just saying!"

Pirates

He was expecting to be boarded in transit, these are treacherous waters and everybody knows how rich the Wayne company is, but he was most certainly not expecting one of his captors to be a red haired boy barely out of his teens. He sits patiently in his ropes, as the other pirates swarm over the ship, and waits until he can catch the boy's eye and tip him a sly wink.

...And the way that he turns bright red, even redder than his hair, is something far more interesting than the cargo or the company or the pirates all put together.

...In SPACE!!

"Well, that was a narrow escape," he huffs, and puts the Javelin into automatic as they speed away from the planet, "I don't know about you, Bats, but almost getting disintegrated by lasers tends to leave me a little hungry. I was thinking-"

He isn't expecting Bruce to drag him over into his lap and kiss him until his lips ache, but he's hardly in the mood to protest. There are few things better than food, but making out after a tense mission might just be one of them.

Born Another Gender

Ally West is, in her civilian identity, a lot more gorgeous than he expected her to be. Her hair is long and red, her face is absolutely covered in freckles and she laughs just like she does as the Flash. Every man looks at her, as she scuttles merrily down the street, and he wants nothing more than to punch them all out and taste the smile on her-

...Ah.

This may be more of a problem than he anticipated.

Schoolfic

"Hi! I'm Mr West, the new chemistry teacher? I mean, not that you'd remember me. I just used to be friends with your son, spend most evenings over at your house, sneak looks at you when you were shirtless and fantasize over... I'm still talking out loud, aren't I?"

Police/Firefighters

Relationships within the force are technically a bad idea. But when the new forensic scientist, the freckles on his nose barely visible under his blush, shyly comes up to him and suggests dinner he really can't think of any solid reasons why.

Urban Fantasy

"Oh, man," he says weakly, nervously staring as the creature before him slides elegantly up from its crouch, "I knew I should've paid more attention in Sunday School. Or actually gone to Sunday school. Or thought at all about Sunday school until this moment."

"Don't worry," Bruce chuckles, and smiles the most charming smile possible, "that won't be a problem."

Regency

Wallace West is the clumsiest young lord imaginable. Within five minutes of entering the ballroom he's stepped on the feet of at least five ladies, knocked at least two young gentlemen flying and almost tripped straight into the wall once. He is, quite frankly, an almost irredeemable mess.

...And maybe that's why he's so fascinating.

People take one look at her hair and expect her to be a firebender, but she’s not and she never has been. Screw the obviousness of setting everything on fire. It’s far more satisfying to use her mind, and let the air speak for her instead.

Coffee Shop

“Harley, this is a bad idea.”

“Nonsense, it’ll go great! I’ve always wanted to open a coffee shop,” Harley retorts, and beams as the coffee machine explodes behind her.

Shapeshifters

Like Daphne, she can hide in the most obvious of places. She shifts into an old oak tree, and smiles as the big bad Bat fails to find her anywhere.

Pirates

The Wayne ships are the richest ones on the waves, but also the most well protected thanks to that damned Bat. She considers it for a second, then dismisses it with a sigh despite Pamela’s scowl and Harley’s pout. The potential reward simply isn’t worth the bother.

...In SPACE!!

Fighting criminals on the moon is a pain, but is surprisingly easy once you get past the obvious annoyances. For all the problems, he does seem to be the only one able to perform a satisfactory backflip in space.

Born Another Gender

Ruth Wayne is gorgeous, and everybody in Gotham is a little bit in love with her. It’s only a pity, that her every attempt to send a testing riddle is intercepted by the big bad Batwoman and sent back to her in flames.

Schoolfic

She can’t parse biology, Pam doesn’t really understand English Lit and Harley is fine with both of them but committed to keeping up her front as a dumb blonde. On the surface a study group seems like the perfect idea for all of them.

...Until Harley sneaks some wine in. And then it very quickly turns into a drunken lesbian threesome on her bedroom floor.

Police/Firefighters

“Edie!” Harley hisses, and jumps on her bed so hard that it actually bangs against the wall. Great, yet another thing for the neighbours to complain about, “Edie, the hot fireman is back!”

And she wants to be pissed, she really wants to be absolutely furious, but instead she sits up so fast that she almost headbutts Harley right in the nose, “wait, do you mean a hot fireman or the hot fireman? A random man who just happens to be aesthetically pleasing, or the very specific gentleman with the bat tattoo?”

“Hon, I’d hardly wake you up this early for just some aesthetically pleasing rando,” Harley sniffs, looking almost insulted at her lack of faith, “it’s the guy. Y’know, the one you’ve had a crush on since the first time I set the kitchen on fire-?”

She doesn’t even have to finish. Before Harley can say a word more she’s up out of the bed, and darting towards the window at top speed.

Urban Fantasy

“I now call this meeting of the elementals to order,” she starts pompously, a thousand riddles already in mind for this auspicious entwining of minds “...Shit, Harley, don’t set fire to that!”

Regency

“May I now announce the ladies Edith Nygma, Harleen Quinzel and Pamela Isley!”

Wearing this fragile muslin dress and going to these gaudy balls is almost a trial too hard to bear. But, hey, at least it makes it easier to rob people!
