This is another attempt at -but not another version of- The Mirror of Dreams; if you haven't read it, read this one first, I think it works better if you weren't spoiled.

Title: The Mirror of Dreams, Take Two
Rating: PG13
Fandom: DCU


Sometimes, Bruce looks at a patent application for a new synthetic polymer and all he can think about is a dark bulletproof cape.

Sometimes he analyzes complex corporate documents with part of him wishing they were the files of a murder case.

Sometimes he has to keep out of his voice a low, menacing tone that would be out of place in a Board meeting.

Sometimes his nightmares seem simpler than life.

Sometimes he wishes he were the Batman.

.finis.

The other one was acceptable; this one is excellent.

I actually found this one ... cute for some reason?

Awww.

Although that's a bit terrifying.

Oddly enough, now I'm reminded of ...
My favourite AU-Bruce of yours is still Bruce Zero :)

Hrmm. Hadn't thought about that, but perhaps Bruce Zero would wish, sometimes, that he could do things in a more hands-on way.

The best strategic choices aren't always the emotionally satisfying ones.

I'm trying very, very hard not to think about the fact that this makes me sad. Just...he could be Batman and he's not and that's. It's sad. *pets him*

I think it shows how very Bat-like you are. *g*
