Title: Genealogy
Fandom: Simon Spector
Prompt: #27, Catharsis
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Nobody is nice in this universe. I mean it.
Summary: Time flies in all sorts of directions.
Word Count: About a hundred and twenty.


What is the first thing you would do with a time machine? Prevent the murder of your parents?

If you were Simon Spector, you'd begin by researching it. You'd discover things about your father that you didn't know, things about the origin of the family money, things about his past. You'd discover things about your mother that wouldn't freeze your blood, but twist softly in your gut with the familiarity of it all.

You'd also discover that nobody in their timeframe was planning to kill them, you'd weight the number of people you have saved, the chances of you ever taking up this life if it hadn't been for that night, and you'd...

You'd use the time machine again.

Mastery, that was it!
*acknowledges your masterdom with a cool nod*

*masterness*

Eeeaaaaaaagh.

This is so totally worse than "Bruce misremembers. His father did it."

I have to disagree with you on that, but I appreciate the feeling.

Beautiful and ruthless.

If you're wondering why I'm plundering your entire archives, it's because your fic is inspiring me. I see a lot of flash fics in my future. Also, a lot of ruthless fics.

That's pretty much a best case scenario as far as I'm concerned.
