Fic: From the Night (PG13, DC AU)

Title: From the Night
Rating: PG13
Famdom: DC AU
Author Notes: On Gotham's approach to crimefighting.

Grief and madness do strange things to people. Think about that the next time you consider commiting a crime.

Are you sure none of your accomplices are made of clay? If you succeed, could you keep it hidden from Nygma? Could you escape forever the tireless Croc?

You might end up keeping the streets safe while a policeman's hat controls your mind. Or spend a month in Crane's Asylum, and forever shake in terror at the mere thought of a crime.

Or you could hear laughter, and then... nobody knows what happens next.

That's not the least of the reasons why Gotham is safe.
