    Summary

    "Do you remember what you did to Gordon when he investigated Kristen Kringle's disappearance?"

    Ed nodded; he would never forget his first steps on the way to becoming the Riddler.

    "I want you to do something similar to me this time."

    "You want me to frame you for a murder?" Even saying that out loud seemed preposterous.

    "Yes. And after today I know just the right pawn to remove from our game."

    ___

    An entirely canon-compliant version of what happened to Penguin and Riddler during the six months after the fight with Bane, explaining what led to their imprisonment and how they spent ten years before the Batman arrived.
    Important note: I refuse to believe that such a powerful super-villains just sat still for a decade and did nothing to escape or turn the incarceration into an advantage. Gotham didn't pause for ten years waiting for Bruce Wayne, and I'd like to describe some scenes that I suppose could've happened during that time.

    Summary

    Season 3 canon divergence AU where Oswald doesn't act like a complete buffoon and actually keeps his shit together, except for reasons out of his control Isabella survives anyway. Things only go downhill from there. Edward is an oblivious fool for most of this story. Pining and angst ensue, but with a happy ending, i promise.

    "«You are right... someone shot her. I need to find out who, and make them pay.» Edward said, suddenly seeming to find his motivation. Finally, Oswald thought, he sounded like his old self.
    Oswald couldn't have been happier to hear this. This was exactly what he had been waiting for, the next step of the plan, even if the first one hadn't gone the way he wanted. There was no reason why this part shouldn't still work. Even with Isabella fighting between life and death, Ed and Oswald could still bond over revenge."

    Summary

    Ed is not a people person. He doesn't get social cues. But surely, surely, he's not so out of it so as to not realize that he's been dating Oz and Jim for over half a year, right?

    Unfortunately, that means his frame of reference for friendship is virtually nonexistent, and he gets a few things mixed up.

    Summary

    James Gordon was a fairly complex riddle. Perhaps even a walking paradox. Ed hadn't quite made up his mind on the latter possibility yet; he needed more data.

    xxx

    In which Jim pays a little too much attention to what goes on around the GCPD (but is particularly interested in instances involving a certain forensic scientist) and Ed is a little too concerned with wooing Kristen Kringle to notice what's right in front of him (but is capable of using the perplexity that comes with it to answer a pressing question about a certain detective).
