Gotham Fiction: Batman Begins Fan Fiction
Title: Divide et impera
Fandom: Batman Begins
Rating: R for mild violence, sex and dark themes.
Pairing: Mostly gen. Bruce/OF, Bruce/Jonathan Crane, Bruce/Rachel implied
Summary: “We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.”
Notes: Soundtrack, Lacrymosa, The End, Golden, Lover I don't have to love
I'd recommend listening to at least Lacrymosa while you read as the song itself inspired and carried a majority of what didn't end up on the cutting room floor.
( The Batman with his mask and his toys and bitter ideals tears apart the old world and the new, pulls broken and twisted men up from the soil and protects the ones who need protecting. He is fear, he is hopelessness and he is mercy. He is the dark knight, cuts the world like a sharp corner that nobody had the foresight to cut off. )
