"Earth and Sky"

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then....I contradict myself;
I am large....I contain multitudes.
(Walt Whitman, "Leaves of Grass")

"Earth and Sky" is a series that explores the possibility that Superman and Batman had a romantic relationship in the AU world shown by Jeph Loeb in the "Absolute Power" story arc, and the effects that would have on the canon versions of the characters.

Afterword:  The Saga of Nightwing and Flamebird [Translated and Abridged from the Kryptonian]

The stories were born from a fascination/frustration with Jeph Loeb's run in Superman/Batman, specifically the "Absolute Power" arc, in which Clark and Bruce are kidnapped at a young age by time travelers and become rulers of the world (and to the slash-sensitive, clearly bedmates). I really wanted to see more of this world, so obviously I had to do it myself.

Then I found myself wondering about the effects of that relationship on the canon versions of Batman and Superman, so I had to write that as well! So the stories tend to go back and forth between the canon and the AU.

Quirks: I tend to be rather mushy...I try to keep my canon Batman on-model but he's so fond of Clark it's difficult. I rationalize it by saying he has these alternate memories he's processing that are making him wonky. I love hurt/comfort, angst, and boatloads of UST, so if those are your likes you'll probably find something here that tickles your fancy.

Hi Jen! Just trying to do a bit of catch-up today on LJ, and say hello. (having had no Net access for nearly a week! Argghh!) (& need to pop into Yahoo Group too sometime, don't I?)

Also am wondering how your move into your new house went? Have a happy Housewarming!!! :-)

This is a great idea, collecting your stories all in one place. (and reminding me I haven't read at least one of those yet - will rectify immediately!!!) (and uh, for the LJ-Ignorant, how did you do it? Just use lj-cut for each story? And they all fit on one page posting??)

This: "I really wanted to see more of this world, so obviously I had to do it myself. "

Yeah! The definitive statment for how all fanfic is born. (grin) Yep. I know from where you come! (grin)

And I don't think you're mushy at all. I love the deep feeling you evoke in your stories for Bruce, and it's sentimental, but not mushy.

As for the AU titles - I think they're perfect for what you're doing with them, because it's funny - I keep a dream journal (sporadically) and title my dreams with very similar titles, so that I can remember them better from the images that stayed in mind. (and also 'cuz I can't really come up with brilliant dream titles EVER.) So this makes such perfect sense to me.

Off to read now ...
