Basically, the whole layout needed replacing due to LJ updates and the failure of the old theme. Plus the tags in the sidebar aren't working yet. Tomorrow.

Words: ~142,426 Chapters: 24/24

Summary: A new Mafia kingpin. A vigilante in exile. A commissioner without allies. Half a year undercover, deep in the heart of the criminal underworld. Half a year to redeem Batman, salvage a broken partnership, and- maybe- save Gotham.

Save to leave and enter the house, Jim Gordon hadn't set foot on his porch in seventeen days. Barbara even took out the trash now, while Jim cajoled the kids into eating their vegetables, washing up for the night and tucking them into bed next to each other in Jim and Barbara's king. Jimmy and Babs hadn't slept in their own rooms for nearly three months. Despite all the counselling they had been through, Jim feared that somehow his children weren't yet out of shock. Their house was a quiet place, too full of silences.

Cop cars still circled the block every half hour after dark. The constant presence of an officer parked across the street from Jim Gordon's house had become part of life in the neighbourhood.

The situation had just become intolerable.

"There's something I need to ask of you, Tarrant."

"Anything. A new dress? I seem to have done this one grievous harm. Or another visit to your mother - surely she's had sufficient time to recover from the last, and she really was most gracious about the table linens. Embroidering battle scenes is quite tricky, you know, Jabberwocks in particular, especially newly headless Jabberwocks, but I do believe she appreciated-"

"No, not home. I want to go...exploring. In Underland."

He's known other women before her, has lain with them, perhaps shared mornings just like this one; the thought gives her pause, but none of jealousy's brittle affliction. But, it's a part of him she doesn't know, a part of his past that may live, she thinks, in the shadows that haunt his sleep.

Title: Waves Upon the Shore
Author: EmilianaDarling
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia (Movie-verse)

Rating: Mature (M)
Category: Male/Male
Pairing(s): Caspian/Edmund Pevensie
Characters: Caspian, Edmund Pevensie, Lucy Pevensie, Eustace Scrubb, Aslan

Additional Tags: Angst, AU Canon, Drama, Family, First Time/First kiss, Friendship, Hurt/Comfort, Romance. Warnings: Dubious Consent, Underage (age being subjective within the Narnian-verse, readers might consider the underage tag a moot point)

Words: 12,153 Chapters: 1/1

Summary: Instead of Susan, it is Edmund that Caspian gravitates toward during the Pevensies’ second trip to Narnia. And events unfurl dramatically differently because of it.

““How do you unite a country whose citizens have fought and killed each other? How do you live side by side to those who murdered your people, who saw your species as not worth living? And how to do allow yourself to be ruled by one who shares the appearance of those who senselessly slaughtered your people?”

Caspian dropped his head into his hands. “I don’t know what to do, Edmund. I just... I don’t know how to make it all okay again.”

There was a long pause as Caspian’s words hung between them, so long that the prince began to wonder if Edmund had nothing to say. And then –

“Do you know what happened when I first came to Narnia?” asked Edmund. Slowly. Carefully.

The sidebar is a bit of a mess ATM but I can't fix it until the account's been upgraded. Be patient with me and in a fortnight things should be fixed.

Title: The Music Between Them
Author: megyal (also here)
Fandom: Naruto (Anime/Manga)

Rating: Teen & Up (PG)
Category: Male/Male
Pairing(s): Sasuke Uchiha/Naruto Uzumaki
Characters: Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke

Additional Tags: AU, Bandom, Friendship, Interview

Words: ~2,100 Chapters: 1/1

Summary: Uzumaki Naruto and Uchiha Sasuke are the two most popular members of the successful band 'KNA'. Interviews with them are interesting, to say the very least.

PAGE 13:
'The Music Between Them'
Interview by Haruno Sakura | Photos by Hatake Kakashi

Arranging an interview with any member of KNA is probably harder than emptying a pool with a spoon, and if you're trying to get to lead singer Uzumaki Naruto or lead-guitarist/lyricist Uchiha Sasuke, then you might as well try your luck with draining the sea. Luckily, your intrepid reporter grew up with these two powerhouses. (That sounds like bragging, but I knew them when they were playing awful riffs in the basement of the small house that belonged to Naruto's foster-brother, or touring birthday parties and getting booed off the stage by twelve-year-olds.)

Getting an interview is still hard, but apparently threatening to publish baby photos makes the whole process just a bit easier.

When Sakura was barely sixteen, she put her fist through the shoulder of a boy she’d once loved. The lightning crackling around Sasuke’s hand fizzled out as he stared at her, maybe just a little bit surprised, right before Naruto’s Rasengan tore through his left side.

Title: Be A Woman Soon
Author: megyal
Fandom: Naruto (Anime/Manga)

Additional Tags: Friendship, Humour, Team!fic

Words: ~1,600 Chapters: 1/1

Summary: For one single day in all of Team 7's training and missions, Sakura was late.
Author's Note: Okay, this might be a little off-putting to some, since it's about... okay, a girl getting her period for the first time. But when you're training to be a ninja, it can be a little more than that. That's what I was thinking, anyway!

Naruto hesitated, and then reached into his pouch and took out a long strip of bright orange cloth. He clenched it in his hands, clumsily warming it with a heating jutsu. Kakashi raised his eyebrows very high when he walked over to Sakura and tied the cloth around her waist, making sure the heated part was resting on her stomach.

"Whenever Anko-san feels this way, Iruka-sensei does this for her," Naruto said with a lopsided smile.
