Title: Observe and Record
~3,500 words, gen, experimental crossover, Highlander/Batman.In Which Timothy Drake is given his first field Watcher assignment, and Adam Pierson has a conversation with Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Broody that doesn't end in drawn swords. Quite.
Lo these many months ago, I started this extra story for the timfinity
challenge. It was a Highlander/Batman crossover, of the Amalgamverse sort, where I just kind of took all the characters and concepts for both fandoms and stirred them together under high heat until I got something shiny and strong, and I had a great deal of fun with it. (Where else would I need a notes file almost as long as the story itself, just to keep track of how many identities each character knows each other character under and when, and which characters know about other characters knowing about other characters?)
But unfortunately, none of my usual audience cares about both Batman and Highlander enough to share my squee about a crossover, so I lost steam. I finally pulled the file out of storage last month, and worked up the first section into something I was proud enough of to post. I'd really love to know if anybody familiar with the fandom(s) in question thinks that this is a universe they'd like to see more in. Or if they just think it's confusing and too silly, like my non-squeeful friends do. (Volunteers for the position of long-suffering beta reader would not be turned away either.)
