The slashiest moment of Jim Gordon's career

So thete1 mentioned that she was thinking about writing Batman/Commissioner Gordon slash. To which my (only natural and right-thinking) response was, of course, "Ewwwwwwwwww."

I don't write slash, but in most pairings I can see how folks could get there from here, so it's possible to enjoy the departure. But it's hard to get more straight than Jim Gordon. For one thing, he's been married. Twice. One of those times fairly late in life, when he didn't have any reason to feel socially obligated to. He's got an eye for women, and didn't stop looking at them (and in one case, doing more) during his first marriage. He's a career police officer and a military vet; those tend to be pretty conservative occupations. The idea of Jim with another guy is kind of a stretch.

That said, Collapse )
