For our annual yule exchange, C and I have posted our two stories. I filled her Batman: Under the Red Hood prompt and she filled my Alias Smith & Jones. They're both bleak, even for us.
Oh my God, I love those ASJ boys. I have to tell you, I am blown away by her story for me - the characterization is perfect. For both of the guys, while reading I had these utter 'aw' moments - if you know the chemistry between these guys, you'll know what I'm talking about. They were a perfect duo, and weirdly enough even when they were shouting at each other it was humorous, not hostile. The story has perfect characterization, warmth, longing and love tied up neatly within a ball of grief. I teared up, guys, and I just find myself waving my hands around and exclaiming how I love it. It's sad but so moving. Rendezvous in a Bedroll
Mine is called Sometimes they Come Back
, and it's all about the animated movie Batman: Under the Red Hood
, which C made me watch and which I love (and one of my kids as well - she's watched it with me several times). I do adore it. C is right, it's a fangirl paradise. The story is Dick Grayson/Jason Todd.
Bruce thinks Jason has crossed the line. He has no idea how far Jason will go. (Or: Jason has a backup plan.)
Remember what I said, though - we are dark people, and we love angst, and angsty love. Check the tags for each story if you need to know why.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day today:)
