Random pairings, part II

May 14th, 2004 (06:51 pm)

The good five-minute genfic, courtesy of the random DCU pairing generator:




"It's true?" said Two-Face. He was heavily drugged, and spoke only out of the Harvey Dent side of his mouth. The other half of his face was slumped and drooling. Occasionally, Harvey lifted a paper towel to that corner of the mouth, pressing cautiously, as if he couldn't feel it, as if the mouth belonged to someone else.

J'onn supposed it did.

"It is true," he said. "I can alter my physical appearance. Look like any human."

The police had been talking about that, in the squad car on the way to the asylum. J'onn needed only a glimpse of Two-Face's surface thoughts to understand. He stayed well out of the mind itself. Too fragmented, too dangerous.

"And you read minds," said Two-Face. Harvey. "You know what I want."

"Yes," said J'onn.

"Would you? Please?"

"Yes," said J'onn. The shift came quickly, easily, as it always did when he had a physical reference.

Harvey Dent gazed on his unbroken reflection for the first time in years.

"Oh," he said quietly. "I was beautiful once."

You may be the first person to put those words together in that particular order. *grin*

(Out of curiosity, what's the fannish derivation of "woobie?")

Batman = Freaky

*laughs* Once upon a time, my gf and I watched an episode of the MTV toon "Downtown," in which a character spent a large amount of time and money trying to track down his 'woobie' -- a Cookie Monster plush toy -- and then... yeah. It started getting tossed around in SV fandom a lot, and SV fandom being HUGE... it just spread. Though I wouldn't be shocked if it popped up roughly concurrently in several places at once.

His nickname used to be "Apollo." Poor guy.

Bruce by Te

Hell, yeah! Now *that's* a good use of the random pairing generator. Maybe I'll see if I can play the 5-minute game, since everything I've written on my WsIP today has sucked ;)

Superboy by ratcreature

'Cause you know, just what fandom needs is more crack. ::snort:: I'm off to write Barbara Gordon/Jack Drake, or possible Superboy/John Constantine...

I have excellent timing... subtle and nifty. Very nifty.
