    Summary

    Rather than being killed by Doomsday, Clark is badly wounded, and infected with kryptonite that has been corrupted via Doomsday's blood. In the aftermath of the fight, with nobody realising the extent of the damage, Clark and Bruce attempt to build something like a working friendship, with Bruce shrugging off the alterations in Clark's behaviour as post-traumatic reaction from having been nearly killed, until Clark, who has been giving in to urges to take what he really wants regardless of the cost to other people, decides to take something he's been wanting since the fight: Batman.

    See author notes at the beginning of each chapter for additional content notes. Update schedule will be every second week. The character death tag is for referenced, past character death, rather than character death in-story.

    Summary

    The media is already calling her ‘Iron Man’, which is probably a clue that the suit’s silhouette is a bit androgynous… but in retrospect, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. She is done with this nonsense where everyone walks on eggshells around her.

    She is NOT a cripple.

    If she can’t walk anymore then, by God, she is going to fly.

    Summary

    Scilicet = Latin for “That Is To Say”

    There are an infinite number of parallel Earths. For every decision we make, somewhere there is an Earth where we have already made the opposite choice. But it is not only our decisions which are affected by this, but all the decisions made by nature... here is a world where you're poor. One where your rich. One where no fish was brave enough to crawl up on land. One where the world ended in nuclear war...

    Here is a world where Thomas and Martha Wayne didn't die. Here is one where Bruce died with them... and here, here is a parallel Earth where Thomas and Martha Wayne died, but Rachel Wayne survived.

    (Set in a universe which sorta combines all the various DC tags above, the crossover with BBC Sherlock is MINOR. Seriously it's almost a "blink and you'll miss it" thing.)

    Summary

    This story, I think, deserves more summary than I usually give. A few years ago I wrote a story called Combat Training Is Not Optional that explored the possibility of a young Kyle Rayner with a massive crush on Bruce, and the painful hijinks that ensued. But at the time I found myself wondering about a similar idea that was much darker, where Kyle's enthusiastic lust took a much more sinister turn, and I found myself imagining this story. I mention this not by way of warning for content, but by way of explaining why I am taking a character I am fond of (Kyle) and doing unsettling things to his personality. I am doing it for the same reason DC writers turned Superman into a murderous villain in Injustice — because I can, and because it's fun to ask what if.

    So, without further summary: what if?
