Yuletide Reveals

I wrote three stories this Yuletide. Not too bad, considering that my computer was dead for about a month in the middle there.

The theme this year was “People called Barbara,” and also “people called Dick,” genderswapping characters, banter, and Bruce Wayne not appearing.

I get knocked down, but I get up again. You’re never going to keep me down. (7048 words) by innerbrat
Fandom: Batgirl: Year One (Comic), DCU (Comics), Batman (Comics)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon
Additional Tags: Case Fic, Friendship, Hurt/Comfort, Dick/Babs if you squint, Mind Control
Summary: Batman is on a mission out of Gotham, leaving Batgirl and Robin as the city’s protectors.

I actually matched with this recipient for three fandoms, but I could not resist the urge to write Babs and Dick being Babs and Dick. It turns out writing actual plots for detectives to solve and be detectives about is hard, and now I understand why plot holes happen. BECAUSE THEY JUST DO, okay?

Summary: It was all Anthony’s doing from the beginning.

So Becca sent me an email informing me that someone had requested genderswapped Peaceable Sherwood, and given that I like genderswapping protagonists for historical romance novels, wouldn’t I like to do this?

No, I said.

Three days later I sent her this to beta.

The Women of Tomorrow (5921 words) by innerbrat
Fandom: Ame-Comi Girls, DC Elseworlds, DCU (Comics)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Kara Jor-El, Jonathan Kent, Martha Kent, Natasha Irons, Barbara Gordon, Carrie Kelly, Helena Bertinelli, Lois Lane, Kara Zor-El
Additional Tags: Hints of Power Girl/Batgirl, Backstory, Alternate Universe – Canon, Hints of Power Girl/Lois Lane,
Summary: A tale of the Woman of Steel, and the effect she has on the people around her.

Ame-Comi’s Power Girl has Clark Kent’s backstory. So this was basically like writing a gender-swapped Superman but actually canon. I had a bunch of fun with this, including the discovery that I’m interested in Steel and would like to know more. No canon knowledge of Ame-comi OR the mainstream DCU is needed for this.
