Title: Shifting Odds
Fandom: Simon Spector
Prompt: #12, Collective Unconscious
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Nobody is nice in this universe.
Summary: Sometimes Simon is slightly wrong.
Word Count: A bit over a hundred.


The wolflike creatures smiled at Simon's bed with pointed teeth and glowing eyes. The moonlight entring through the windows reflected eerily on their claws.

Werewolves. He had evaluated the historical record, the reports of witnesses, the relevant biology and folklore. Everything had gone into a probabilistic model. Despite the recent pattern of killings -the animalistic forensic features, the correlation of the deaths with the phases of the moon- he had found their existence highly unlikely.

The creatures growled with hate and anticipation and pounced at him.

Unlikely but not impossible. Simon took two guns from under his pillows and started firing silver-tipped rounds.

.finis.

I really, really, really shouldn't be as hot for Simon as I am, but I honestly can't help it. Freakishly smart, slightly paranoid people are my weakness. ;)

I'm kind of vaguely worried that my response to most of these recent ones is to chuckle a bit.

Heh. I think fandom has somewhat distorted (corrected?) our standards.

This is a guy who factors in the three percent chance that Christos might attack while he's out and advices accordingly. If it's possible, he's planned for it.

Point. He's much like Batman, but without the Bruce Wayne overhead.

Now, when you say "overhead" do you mean in terms of neural real estate or social capital?

Both, actually. Also, allocated time (which I think is the Bats' main bottleneck; I do wish I knew how they do it, besides being unrealistically capable and apparently capable to deprive themselves of sleep for long periods without serious cognitive or physical secondary effects).
