    Summary

    “I thought the planet was saved!” Aaron protested.

    “She was,” Duke said, “the Goddess destroyed those people who hurt her with a flood of plants. She grew over their cities and trashed their lands. She cleaned the waters and filled the air with spores to spread across the world. Nowhere has been left untouched by Her.

    “But it wasn’t enough. The Earth still suffers now, as it did an age ago. Even now, she fights off the rot eating towards her core. Even now, she washes clean the damage Chaos inflicts on her. Because He’s still bitter at what the Goddess took from Him.

    “This is why the Goddess doesn’t walk among us, emboldened by Her success,” Duke told the children. “This is why She can’t afford to drop her guard. Chaos still searches for his Love, and the Goddess fights Him back time and time again.”

    --

    An AU where Gotham exists, as it always does, but in a world of plants. Duke lives near the base of one of the Great Trees that spear through the planet and is happy to remain there with his cousin and the Alley's many stray kids.

    At least, until he has to visit the Great Tree himself.

    Part of the Duke Thomas Big Bang (2021)

    Summary

    Gotham isn’t a happy place. It’s a gloomy city, constantly covered in fog. The sky is rarely ever its natural bright blue, almost permanently stained grey from a combination of pollution and rain clouds.

    In which Duke Thomas' social worker is done with Duke running away from foster homes, Bruce Wayne fosters him, and Duke? He just wants a home.

    Constructive criticism is encouraged! Please I want to improve :)

    Will hopefully update every Monday

    Summary

    Duke blinks and finds Tim crouching in front of him, eyebrows furrowed in concern.

    “What’s wrong?” he asks. “Did you get spelled during patrol?”

    His voice is muffled, like Duke is underwater. Sinking, sinking. He tries to shrug, he tries to reply, but he’s so drained. There’s nothing left to give. He tilts to the side and with no strength to fight against gravity, he lets himself slide sideways against the wall.

    Tim catches him and the concern is easily replaced with panic.

    Summary

    So, when he realised one day once he looked down that he was missing his shadow, the first thing he checked was to make sure he wasn’t also glowing. Can’t have a shadow if you’re the light source after all.

    Nope, not glowing.

    Weird.

    Duke's shadow works like Peter Pan's and immediately chooses violence

    Summary

    “When I called your number, you know, the one Red Hood gave me? I was kind of expecting that guy to show up” he says eventually.

    Jason scowls and levels Duke with a glare. “In my defense, I genuinely didn’t think you’d been kidnapped.”

    Duke raises an eyebrow. “The abandoned crackhouse didn’t give it away?”

    Summary

    Walking past the clean lawns of Bristol and entering the maw of the city was a study in entropy. A change so very gradual yet unmissable. It would start with a little more litter on the streets here and there, the distant glow of neon lights and a few graffitied walls. In the heart of the city, almost every street reverberated with the bass rumble of sleazy clubs and there was smoke clinging to every fire escape.

    The city’s background ambience was produced by police sirens and shouted curses.

    It was where he found Jason, staring at a police car blaring sirens, curled like a shadow in the alley next to the Thai restaurant.

    Summary

    Duke Thomas is nine years old and already smart as a whip. He knows quite a few things he shouldn’t. He knows that Alfred may be old, but he knows everything that happens on the grounds of the Manor and has the best gossip. He knows that Bruce Wayne doesn’t quite know what to do with him and is fostering him out of guilt. And most importantly, Duke knows that that guilt comes from the fact that Bruce is Batman.

     

    Reverse robins au with Duke being the first one to be taken in.

    Summary

    They say that when the signal is lit, Gotham will always send aid.

    And when the Knights of Gotham arrive, there is nothing that can stop them.

    That was what Duke was now, even if he never bore the title. Though perhaps someday, sooner than he could have imagined, he will.

    Summary

    It all happens in the blink of an eye. One moment, Doug is in an alleyway that’s quickly filling with noxious green gas as the Joker’s cackle splits the air. The next, he’s waking up in a hospital with a massive headache, strained vocal cords, and a body that feels strangely stiff and wrong.

    But in that blink, ten years have passed.

    Or, after ten long years, Duke’s parents are finally cured of the Joker venom’s effects. Figuring out where to go from here is harder than you’d expect.

    “How did Bruce Wayne become rich?,” Tim flung the paper across the room, “Easy, nepotism.”
