marvel - purple barton


Title: Benighted
Summary: Clark meets someone new on a Metropolis rooftop.
Fandom: Smallville/Batman
Word Count: 666 (unintentionally and for the win)
Rating/Warnings: PG, AU set anywhere between Thirst and season 8
Pairing: You can see preslash in this if you really want to, but that's just because I can't seem to write Clark without him coming off as gay.
A/N: Crimmus fic for vampirehunter85. I really enjoyed writing this. It flowed easier than I thought it would, and it's actually happy. However: Point one: I haven’t seen Batman Begins. Point two: I’m only vaguely familiar with JLA. Point three: O’Doyle rules. Point four: My favorite Batman is Michael Keaton. Point five: If Gough and Millar can mess around with the back stories of Aquaman and the Flash for Smallvillian purposes, I can mess around with Batman’s. ... I don't know why I feel the need to justify this particular iteration of Batman, but there you go.
ETA: Noting for my own purposes that I've edited this v. slightly (took out a redundancy, Clark drives a truck, etc). You probably won't notice.
