Ficlet: Rematch (DCU, PG13)

Title: Rematch
Fandom: DCU
Rating: PG13
Summary: It might, of course, be what Slade had in mind all along.

Author Notes: A bit after current-ish Teen Titans continuity, unless canon messes with it.



It was obvious, really. Like a purloined letter hidden in plain view.

He even had in place the nonlethal protocol to catch him. Hardest one he had ever had to write, bar one. Now - he's glad he did it.

Bruce surely won't appreciate the irony.

Capture isn't easy. Neither is obtaining the equipment. The files themselves, from old Cadmus backups... It's hacking work he wouldn't be shamed to show Oracle.

And yet all of that had proved easier, in the end, that cloning another body and teaching him from scratch.

Erase the existing neural pattern. Apply the original conditioning files from Cadmus, Luthor's patches debugged out.

Hopefully.

He'll think about that some other time.

The subject opens his eyes. Confused, innocent, eager.

It's a match.

.finis.

I just wanted to point out the hilarity of your location if you click on it to go to maps.

"Did you mean: The office. WTTF am I doing here anyway?
Results 1 - 10 of about 6,955 for The office. WTF am I doing here anyway?"

Title and last line of EVIL.

Fic of yearning pain.

Marcelo, once more, for the win.

I'm glad this worked! I had -have- some doubts about this fic, but didn't come up with a better way to write it.

Slade... cloning Kon. This idea both scares and amazes me.

I love it.

It's not precisely what I had in mind (I was thinking about Tim reprogramming Match, who is an already existing Kon clone Slade has, we are told by DC solicits, recruited for his Titans group), but... your idea is scary and wonderful.

huh. i guess I misread it. it's still great. i'd write slade recloning kon... but i doubt i could do it justice.

i'd write slade recloning kon... *grins* I'd love to read that fic.

Something like that would have to be a collaboration between me, ilyena_sylph and merfilly, probably. No way in the world I could write that one on my own. Not and make it come out right, anyway.

You're right, though, that is an awesome idea.

"Marcelo is being horrifying again!"

Says she, reading her comic, "This isn't news."

So then I showed this to Arion Hunter, to prove why I was shrieking, and she gazed at me with an appalled look.

"Isn't he *scary*?" says I.

"YES."

I. I think the summary might scare me more than ANYTHING ELSE.

I might never stop grinning about that. Never.

I. I think the summary might scare me more than ANYTHING ELSE. I thought it might *g*.

Slade takes care of his boys.

Kinda. In a way.

Rose really doesn't want to know what he said when his surveillance picked up that she was trying to get Tim to sleep with her. I'm not sure what she'd do when she found out about all the surveillance he had on her.

She still hasn't gone through Tim's process of education re: Bruce. Unless you count the end of the Renegade arc as her Robin #120.

I don't. I really don't.

Maybe her Robin 116... but not 120.

*reads other comments*

I don't know what it say about me that I am less scarred and more, um, proud of Tim? Yeah. *hides*

I need help.

Prolonged exposure to the Bats does tend to have effects like that.

Except in Tim's case; he was pretty much like that since before he met them.

A Tim who can do this, of course, is but a step from becoming Tomorrow's Titans' Batman.

...and now, of course, i'm thinking of tomorrow's titans' superman.

tim: what happened? what did this to you?
superman: you did.

I was already afraid.

This is where I started hyperventilating. Oh, god, that's horrifying.

Marcelo, you are the king of frisson.

This is sooooo damn TIM that it frightens even more than he usually does.

Thanks! That's high praise.

And only with Tim could I read a fic this inherently evil and think both, "aw" and "of course."

*grins* Tim's like that, isn't he?

At firs I did think it was Slade - cloning Match, for some reason. Then I reread it with Tim in mind, and oh, Timmy...

*nods* The Slade version is quite scary.
