Fic: The Mirror of Dreams

I'm not quite happy with the wording of this one. At some point, I'm probably going to have to rewrite it from scratch.

Title: The Mirror of Dreams
Rating: PG13
Fandom: DCU
Summary: It's about Bruce and his dreams.


Alfred woke him up, breakfast tray already at hand. Bruce said something unintelligible.

"A nightmare, Master Bruce?"

"The usual one, Alfred. It doesn't matter."

"If you say so, sir."

Bruce took the day's newspapers from the tray and began scanning them for useful information. He had real work to do, real people to help. The violent "Batman" of his recurrent nightmares, understandable as it was as a child's way to cope with loss, would have to remain in the realm of dreams.

.finis.

I see what you mean; the last line is a little talky. But the concept is *awesome*

*nods* I have to fix that, yes. But I'm glad you liked the idea. *g*

Neat!

Last couple of lines would work better in your usual terse style.

Thanks! Yeah, it needs to be tighter, I think.

I remember your 'Things to do with the things you find on your hard drive' fic, and I do believe in the fact that Bruce could do more good as a full-time philanthropist, and the concept that it would never be entirely enough to help *him* is awesome.

Hadn't thought about the relationship between those fics, thanks! I'm glad you liked the idea.
