Ficlet: First Year (DC toonverse AU, PG13)

Title: First Year
Fandom: DC Toonverse, AU

Summary: More than anything else, your life is built by the choices your make.
Author Notes: If I were a vidder, I'd have *tons* of source for telling this story.


She found him sitting on a couch, quietly bleeding as if he were waiting for something to happen. She sat on one of the couch's arms, resting a hand on his forehead.

"Not a good first night in Gotham, was it?"

He grimaced through the pain. "No... No magic, Zanna."

She smiled. "Save it for Alfred, Bruce." She mumbled something and he sighed deeply.

"You won't die now. You could look happier."

He rose from the couch and walked toward a window wall. "It's not that. I had hoped that what I learned would help me somehow... I don't know. Help Gotham."

Zatanna hugged him from behind. "I miss my father, too. I'm happy you were there for me."

He smiled over his shoulder. "I'm glad you were there for me, too. I had thought I'd be alone forever."

"You? Never." She smiled and tugged his hand. "We'll discuss what to do with Gotham later. Now let's do some magic."

He raised an eyebrow. "I'm not sure Alfred would approve of sex in the studio."

"Alfred wants a heir for the Waynes, he'll cope."

Some time later, a bat hovered near the window for a few seconds and went away.

.finis.

*giggle* I really wish they'd explored this pairing a bit more in the 'toons.

Me too! I loved their relationship - he was never Batman to her, nor tried to.

I thought maybe it was a Freudian slip, considering that you talk to katarik a lot. She's WAY in the gutter. ;-)

I was as pure as driven snow before I fell under her influence.

Sorta. Somehow.

No, really.

I wonder what will become of this Bruce.

Also it seemed sorta fluffy at the end But then there's the bat watching, now I'll be creeped out for the rest of the day that it wasn't a bat crashing through a window, but the Bat choosing someone who'd fit its purpose.

*nods* Yes, that's how the scena felt in my head before writing it down. It's a happy scene -and I also have a tendency to write married couples in a fluffly way- yet it's *Bruce*. Darkness is always somewhere near.

Oh. Oh, man. I -- probably shouldn't be saying 'yipe'.

But I should be contemplating a toon!Tim who *didn't* imprint on Batman.

Two things come to mind:

1. Run, pretty much everybody, run!

2. Tim would also happily imprint on Zatanna, specially, I think, this Zatanna. Something along the lines of Te's flirting-with-Diana Tim?

This is making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It says something that my first reaction to feeling warm and fuzzy about anything to do with Bruce/Gotham is wondering what'll go wrong next. *beams*

*laughs*

Not that it isn't the rational response, considering past experience.

"You won't die now. You could look happier."

This line just killed me. Absolutely killed me. This whole fic was fun... but the thought of a Tim who imprinted on Zatanna almost scares me.

But then, so does the thought of a child born to Batman and Zatanna... *quibbles in mock fear*

Now that's something to look forward to...

"Aw, Dick's life is going to turn out so much better."


Hadn't thought about that, but, yes, you are absolutely right.
