Ficlet: Double Agency (PG13, DCU)

The first of the promised Xmas ficlets; this one is for comixologist

Title: Double Agency
Fandom: DCU
Rating: PG13
Summary: Lex hates to waste a good tool.


From Justice League groups to corporate boards, Luthor believed in always having one or two people in his enemies' inner circle. Wayne Enterprises had proven remarkably resilient to that strategy, but perhaps Wayne's latest heir would prove an easier entry point.

Besides, Luthor already had a very appropriate agent in storage. So to speak.

* * *

"Dude," whispered sotto voice the LexCorp intern. "I know it's for charity and everything, but this party sucks. Wanna slip outside?"

Timothy Drake stared silently at the black-haired young man that had just approached him.

"Drake? You okay? You seem like you are about to puke or something."

"I'm... I'm fine. Just thinking about somebody else."

"Somebody hot, I hope." The young man's blue eyes sparkled with life, and his handshake was both strong and warm.

Almost inhumanly so.

.finis.

It doesn't help that Kon looks so great with those eye glasses, I tell you that.

This is so cruel - but at the same time it makes me nod and think, "of course!". If any strategy might work, then this.

Then it passes muster as a Luthor plan, right? *g*

That would work.

*nods* I'm surprised Lex hasn't cloned Lois yet. Having a Lois-clone as a *cough* bodyguard *cough* would work wonders to keep Superman out of balance, although of course her loyalty would be be tenuous at best.

Marcelo? How are you so *brilliant*?!?

I'm not! I just write about and for brilliant people.

That's way easier :).

My reaction and love for this can be expressed completely with one action.

I. Uh. There seems to be something wrong with my air because I can't fucking breathe here! Jesus, Marcelo, this is...oh, Timmy, my poor (lucky) boy. And Lex. Oh, Lex, you're a bastard and you're scary as fuck and I do love you so. *flails*

*So* glad you liked it! I usually write Tim doing the scary things, but, well, this is Lex. What would horrify *him* is best left to the imagination.

The best thing about this is, they're both so fucking freaky there's no way of telling how this will play out. Because yeah, this is Lex but that's Tim and it is never a good idea to try and fuck with him.

Oh, I love this so much!

On the other hand, perhaps the agent can be persuaded over to the Timmy side of the force....
__marcelo

... Unless that was Lex's plan all along...

... Unless Timmy knew that was Lex's plan all along...

etc *g*. Those two are twisted.

That said, winning this guy over would be cool. Disturbing, but cool.

*grins*

The wonderful thing about writing Lex is that there aren't many things he wouldn't consider doing, or he wouldn't have the resources to pull off.

Thanks! Lex is a bit of a nightmare scenario, a genius with near-unlimited resources and few if any moral constraints... It makes him a very fun character to write *g*.

I feel bad about what I did to Tim here, and noticed, after posting, that I hadn't really fleshed out in my mind this new character.

Needlessly to say, my brain went for the worst-case scenario, hence the sequel. Still, I kept it "unofficial"; I really want to keep open the door for a happy ending to this situation.

Thank you SO MUCH. ♥! It's marvelous. I love it.

Desperately. Because Lex is vicious that way, and that is why he is my favoritest ever.

So! What sort of fanart would you like in exchange, darlin'?

Yay!

Hmm. Take all the time in the world and everything -knee problems suck- but if you could find in your heart to make something iconable involving Tim and/or Lex and computers and/or the stock market... (if that's too specific, just make anything at all, your work never fails to make me squee).

I'm not hyperventilating in terror.

Really.

Okay, not much, anyway.

I'm not... Oh, what the hell. I'm *so* basking in self-satisfaction here. *g*

I should be scared, I know it, but my brain has been re-conditioned to process fen evilness as cool.

I blame Kat.
