My lovely, mischievous Yuletide gift

(Reboot) Lara Croft case fic, wherein our young adventurer gets a pleasant chance to screw a bit with Trinity's plans, the archaeology world an stunning find, and Lu, one assumes, a worsened ulcer.

Summary:

A misdelivered letter provides an opening to get a step ahead of Trinity, and Lara has never been one to miss opportunities like this.

Anyway, continuing with my very slow process of archiving some of my fics, I just posted Kid's Game to AO3.

Compared with the contemporary state of the Bat-world (or is it? I've lost track, to be honest, and I suspect they have as well), Tim and Steph being Robins will probably look weird (Steph more than Tim, as he was Red Robin), and the lack of Damian would be glaring.

That said, how do you place Damian inside that AU? Could be a long-lost twin brother, raised to look up to Bruce, but even if that lets him be thirteen, his education wouldn't make sense — there's no Batman to point him to.

Bottom line, I think that — and this isn't to badmouth the guy, this is part of the trauma inflicted on him — he was raised and shaped around the poles of the al-Ghul's and Batman (worse, the al-Ghul's sometimes patchy understanding of him), so a Damian in a world before Batman is hard to conceptualize, as much as he, one hopes, grows up to strike on his own.

Rats, now I've gone and saddened myself. Damian in a world before Batman is hard to conceptualize is a horrible thing to say about anybody, that his life has been so over-determined (or almost so; his striving to free himself being the harshest, sweetest, and most painful to watch part of his life), that it's difficult to imagine radical AUs.

Werner Herzog will be part of the cast in The Mandalorian. Herzog. In Star Wars. In Disney's Star Wars.

This is infuriatingly too bonkers to accept and not bonkers enough. Either have Herzog threaten with a pike the suit suicidal enough to propose this to him, or have him direct the most existentially grim and barely understandable three hours long episode about a bunch of Imperial Soldiers forced to carry the parts of a giant plasma cannon on their backs up a giant mountain in the desert.

Or a documentary about Luke being eaten by Ewoks, if you want to be predictable.

But, god, not this halfway crap. The timeline is screwed up as it is. Go for broke.

(I'm still bummed we didn't get a Star Trek with Hannibal aesthetics. Imagine the aliens. Imagine the (fully canonical) weirdness. Imagine the Mirror Universe.)

Fic: The Deal (DC AU, PG13)

The Deal (132 words) by marcelo
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: DCU (Comics)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Clark Kent, Jonathan Kent, Martha Kent
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe
Summary:

It's not always the signer who pays the price.

I just realized superhearing is impossible. Comic book physics might be almost infinitely pliable, Superman's physical abilities might fly, pun not intended, on the face of conservation of energy, whatever, but I draw the line at Chaos Theory: superhearing is mathematically impossible, the signal-to-noise ratio of trying to listen to somebody yelling for help a continent away being what signal?

So: what if Superman is impossible? What if, and hear me out, Superman is invulnerable to almost everything but magic because he's magic?

What if Martha and Jonathan Kent, alone in that dark hotbed of wild magic that is Deep America, built as it was on genocide and oblivion, went crazy with grief and in their desire for a child made a pact and got a perfect, a perfect child in return, fallen from the sky like his true father once did?

What if the cost of that pact was the death of a planet far away? Why would the Kents have cared, with their empty nursery and the midnight fields whispering possibility?

What if kryptonite is mortal to the immortal because the souls of sacrificed billions haunt the Universe-strewn ruins of their home and want, need, claim their revenge?

Arrow S7E9, aka Elseworlds #2

Continuing a long-standing pattern regarding my preferences between non-cover Waynes and Wayne-ish personas vs Bat-personas, I think Kathy Kane is about 17% more badass than Batwoman, which isn't at all a low bar.

Also, (1), I'm convinced the writers read the World's Finest Elseworld (which would be an appropriate reference at many levels), and, (2), a couple of scenes were less openings-to-fanfic than first pages of.

Doctor Who S11E9

Short, spoilery comment.Collapse )

The obvious caveat is that I'm not unbiased in favor of Thirteen and this season in general, so.
