    Summary

    Takes place after Season 4, wherein there are few comforts in a city left in ruin, but as Jim tries to aid in its rebuilding, he manages to find a few quiet moments of comfort here and there in an unexpected person.

    Join me as we visit some of fanfiction's oldest tropes such as "there was only one bed," "cuddle me, I've got a fever" and "please don't die, I think I love you" among others.

    (Side note: This is NOT part of my on-going series and is meant to be read as a stand-alone).

    Summary

    "I’ll show him. I’ll commit a crime so entirely brazen and obvious that he’ll just know it was me and he won’t be able to catch me,” Ed’s eyes burned. Oswald’s mouth was dry; he couldn’t swallow. “Blow up Gotham Central Bank, that ought to send a message. Or, maybe a theater opening, kill the lead actor right on stage.”
    Ed laughed and a sharp grin twisted his face, the same grin that enthralled him, scared him, made him feel flayed.
    “He’ll know I’m guilty but he won’t be able to do a thing.” Ed turned to Oswald. “Fitting revenge, don’t you think?”
    Oswald, his mouth nearly too dry to form the words, ventured, “Ed, why did you rob Gotham Central Bank this morning?”

    -

    Oswald Cobblepot and Edward Nygma own Gotham City. With Oswald running City Hall by day and the criminal underworld by night, they feel unstoppable. But when the Court of Owls threaten Oswald's power, and Ed begins to grow tired of operating behind the scenes, they find themselves at odds. Soon their conflicting desires threaten the very foundation of their relationship. As they try to hold on to the life they've built together, Ed and Oswald must confront not only how well they know each other, but how much they understand themselves.

    Summary

    Jim and Oswald explore their relationship and themselves after the events of FTOPL. This series will cover a host of situations and kinks, and is canon-divergent after 4x21, though if we got a season five I might borrow things as we go. We shall see.
