I finished Wolverine and the X-Men, and I felt like writing a coda of sorts.

Don't mind me, I'm just experimenting with a plot bunny.

Lots of swearing, because Jason.

Title: Tempest
Rating: PG
Character: Angel Salvadore

Notes: Some dialogue taken from XMFC and New X-Men 118.

Title: Reminiscent
Rating: G
Characters: Bruce and Steph. Bruce’s POV.
Timeline: Robin 124
Summary: Bruce said he’d visit Spoiler in the hospital. This is that visit.

It's evening when he arrives at the hospital. He makes sure he isn't seen as he traverses the grounds.

The window is open. He wonders if Stephanie had insisted.

He expected her to look frail, laying there, pale and bruised and covered in bandages.

She doesn't, really. The Spoiler looks like fallen warrior aching to get back up again, even as she sleeps.

He reaches forward slowly, silently, and brushes the damp strands of hair from her face. He sees the potential in her, but it would be selfish to utilize it. (It's bad enough, a part of him says, that he needs Tim.) It would be better set to something else; something that won't snuff that light out forever.

He's half way out the window when he hears her voice, hoarse but strong.

stop right there, buster )

Title: Mnemonist
Fandom: DC
Character: Barbara Gordon
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Summary: A photographic memory is a double-edged sword.

Nothing is ever forgotten. Images sink into her mind like ink into skin, portraits of her
past that never fade.

It gives her an edge no weapon will, and it can't be taken away from her. Brutal crimes, vital clues, secret files; they're stored forever behind her eyes.

She remembers the way Jason fought, unbridled passion driving every strike. She remembers the way Sarah walked, each and every stride as brisk and confident as the last. She remembers the way Stephanie flew through smog and stars with Cassandra.

She will never forget her mother's smile.

She'll never forget his, either.

Title: The Quiet Night
Fandom: DC
Character Barbara Gordon
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Summary: She thinks she remembers everything, but she doesn't.

Sometimes, when Barbara sits high above the city's spires, she almost remembers. It's an ache in her chest that she can’t quite place, a wistful thought that she can’t quite grasp.

As she stares at the sinking sun, the breeze against her lips almost feels like a playful kiss, the warmth on her skin a tender caress.

It's only for a few moments, stolen from a time that never was. The breeze dies, and the warmth fades, and she is alone in the dark.

She searches the sky for a familiar smile, but all she can see are dead stars.
