Fic: Fuga (PG13, DC AU)

brown_betty wondered -in a very evil and enabling fashion- if I had already written the AU where a drunk driver killed Bruce's parents.

I don't know if this is a good answer, but it's a damn interesting question.

Title: Fuga
Rating: PG13
Fandom: DC AU
Summary: Gothamites are an irresponsible, careless lot.


Your only peace lies in numbers and order, so you analyzed this, too, as you analyze everything. The auditory hallucination appears an average of seven point three times a day, triggered by traffic sounds -of course- but also sudden noises, or certain tones of voice.

You hear a car braking, your mother's half-scream, the solid sound of metal pulping the flesh of your loved ones.

The reporter from the Daily Planet rewords his question. Are you concerned about the effects of your business practices -called "ruthless" by some competitors like LexCorp- on the man on the street?

You remember the street and the man, his drunkenness, his empty regret after destroying your life. He has been free for years now.

"Yes, of course," you lie.

.finis.

He always breaks in interesting ways, doesn't he?

How do you do that? You've got an entire world here in, what, just under seven full lines of text? And it's awesome and terrifying and still *Bruce* because he's still a wreck, just a different kind of wreck.

Yes. I feel unforgivably patronizing every time I give you feedback because it's like taking a look at the inner workings of a genius and going, "Good boy, have a cookie." Genius writer != toddler in need of validation. Unless, of course, you want it, in which case I live to serve--and also to provide cookies.

-called "ruthless" by some competitors like LexCorp-

Ahahahaha, damn.

...so, wait, does this Bruce have a Robin? And if so, what does said Robin look like?
