Title: Squandered my resistance
Fandom: Batverse
Author: petronelle
Story Info: Jim Gordon, gen, PG, 2800 words

I think I've mentioned before how I don't read comics - but here's another story that's so good that doesn't even matter. This one's a gen piece on Commissioner Gordon, and it does my favorite thing ever, which is when fic takes canon, flips it on its head, turns it inside out, and makes you look at everything from a completely different angle. I'd never thought about how humiliating it must be for Gotham City police officers to have to turn on a signal to summon a man in a costume to help them out. How Batman's clearly crazy, but they don't have any other options, and it's only out of desperation that they call on this vigilante who at any moment might do anything at all. How he's got these young boys running around the streets with him, and somebody should do something, but.

Just a great little story.

There's a boy standing next to Batman with his hands on his hips and his legs bare, his hair curling over his forehead. He's way too young to be on the streets fighting crime, all of fourteen if he's even that old.

Jim really ought to call the Department of Family Services. It can't be impossible to find out who Batman is and stop him from endangering a minor.

DO YOU LIKE MY BATMAN FIC? PLIS READ AND REVIEW!

At least Jim and Pam are not making love in this one.

Batman THIS.

Quick poll, which is the grossest word:

(a) making love
(b) lover
(c) OH GOD MY EYES MY EYES

a?

Jim wants to make love to you, tenderly, in euphemisms while we fade to black.

You guys are just getting weird now, you know.

And FYI, that is a phenomenally great story.
