Fear Ye the Slash  
Well, I figured it was only a matter of time when I started reading Clex fic. The DC 'verse, as convoluded and disorganized as it is, is like a giant black hole. And-- *slurp!*-- there went poor little Meredith. I've always gotten a 'vibe' from Batman and Robin I (or Batman/Nightwing, or Bruce/Dick, whatever), but now I'm looking for some fic. The thing is... I can't seem to find any. I found Tim/Dick (thanks to amejisuto)-- that's actually what I started out reading, but after a hitting a fic where Bruce had enormous issues about Tim managing to go where no Bat had gone before... I guess I'm just old school. Bruce/Dick OTP all the way, baby.

So, where are the goods? I need links-- archives, author sites, comms. Pretty please, with sugar on top? *tries to look cute*

Have some pity on a fandom 'ho, here. ^_~

DCU really is a vortex of death--I have seen SO MANY people get sucked into it. :) Anyway, petronelle is a great writer in all the fandoms where I've read her, and she is insanely prolific in DCU: see her memories here. There's got to be some Bruce/Dick in there. And I know thete1's very active in DCU, so you should probably check her memories as well.

Here, here! *clings to the last vestiges of her sanity* And yet, you remain immune. But for how long? ^_~

Seriously, thanks so much for the recs-- I've already found a ton of great fics and links through these ladies, so I really appreciate it. *gloms on Leigh* I've missed you, sweetie.

I can't say that I really read DC stuff since I don't really know the canon all that well, however I know that thefourthvine has great recs for every fandom known to humankind and a substantial DC section (good SV recs too!).

DC canon is impossible to know-- I'm convinced. The damn writers can't even figure out what's going on, and they've rearranged it trying to make more sense. ^^ SV may be crappy after season 2.5, but at least it's linear. ^_~

Seriously, thanks for the recs. I may like Bruce/Dick, but Lex is just so *good* at being evil. ^__^ And Clark is a puppy.

likethesun2 mentioned your quest to me and I am wracking my brain to come up with stories you may not have already found.

Jane St. Clair's Seven Night is a lovely mix of nostalgia and hope.

Sarah T.'s work is generally quite good. I'd particularly recommend 'This whole experiment of green.'

maelithil's kink story, Make the bed you were born in, is charmingly dirty.

Betty writes sweet porn when she admits that she writes porn.

I quite liked cereta's Hanging Work AU series before it became actively slashy, ironic though that may sound. Try it and see if you like it; it's very well written but the latter parts are not to my taste.

Another story that didn't entirely work for me, but might be just your style, is Elynross's Apart from what we wish and what we fear.

On a more general note, I take it you haven't found the DC Fic Index yet, nor the newbie guide entry.

In any case, welcome!

Wow, what a warm welcome, petronelle. Any friend of Epigone's is most certainly a friend of mine! *grins* I'd found the DC fic index, but not the newbie guide, and all the other fics sound awesome. I'm already getting a feel for where my perception of the pairing lies, so I'll sample a little bit of everything. It was really nice of you to go into such detail. I can't thank you enough!

Oh, DC Canon, I fear you shall eat my brain... *sniffle* ^_~
