Original Fic: The Siege (PG13, DCAU)

Title: The Siege
Rating: PG13
Fandom: DC AU


Once, a young kid named Bruce had a very bad night. Logically enough, he wanted it to never happen again. But bad things kept happening, again and again, until a cop with a Chicago accent figured out why.

Then they put Bruce, who was no longer a kid, in a different place. Safer for him, said the doctors, and for everyone else. And Bruce was happy to be sent to Arkham. It was okay to be in a cell, if that meant he'd be kept safe from the Batman.

People looked at Bruce in a funny way when he told them that.

.finis.

Why, no, I wasn't planning to sleep tonight. Or again. At all. Ever. How did you guess?

Unfortunately, not unbelievable from canon.

Bruce's precise degree of sanity is one of those variable constants that editors, authors, and readers keep subtly fighting over all the time. He can be _really_ bonkers, kind of bonkers, extremely sane, obsessed but sane, sane-ish, haunted, nearly schizophrenic, and a host of other possibilities, including whatever the hell Adam West's Bruce Wayne was going through.

This is why you should write the mystery movies about identity.

Bravo. Deeply creepy, and yet still right with the world.

Heh. Not my Bruce (comics or DCAU) but a definite maybe-in-another-dimension Bruce. My Bruce is sane. He just likes to scare the crap out of people.

Not unlike a lot of supposedly sane people who actually exist.

*g* Not my Bruce, either. I just love playing with alternatives.

(Speaking of alternate Bruces, if you'll excuse the self-reccing, The other side of the joke and the rest of the Othersideverse might interest you.)
