This fic is a great What-If story about what could have happened if Selina had decided not to make a pact with Bane to turn Batman over to him. It’s gotten off to a wonderful start, and the voices of everyone is spot on. Plus, i know from some of the author’s other work that they do plot very, very well.
You should be reading this!
BLESS YOU AND YOUR FLAWLESS WRITING. THAT IS ALL. THANK YOU!!!
My pleasure! Just glad I could contribute something to Bat/Cat week!

I do admit, that was one of my favorite lines in the fic. ;)
That “League of Extraordinary Ladies” fic we talked about? The one with Selina Kyle, Lois Lane, Pepper Potts, Natasha Romanoff and Jane Foster? It’s the latter half of that fic I just posted, so I haven’t forgotten about it!

Series: Part 4 of Adaptation
Author’s Note: Part of my Adaptation series, a series that crosses over Batman (Nolan verse), Avengers and Man of Steel. If nothing else, you should really read “Assess and Recommend" (#2 in the series) to get backstory on some of the developments in this fic.
Summary: If Bruce Wayne had learned anything in the year and a half since leaving Gotham City, it was that the world was descending further into anarchy, not spiraling away from it. The aftermath of Metropolis’s destruction, and even that of New York, he’d been hit with the hard revelation that they were not alone in the universe. He’d dealt with evil men before, the type that believed in a cause and the type that reveled in unbridled chaos. But now Earth was outsourcing on evil, and this new brand was coming from worlds he could never imagine.
New alliances needed to be forged.
I am now writing a fic I have tentatively entitled, “League of Extraordinary Ladies.” Featuring, for your pleasure, Lois Lane, Selina Kyle, Pepper Potts, Natasha Ramonoff, Barbara Gordon, Jane Foster, Darcy Lewis, Maria Hill, and Peggy Carter (maybe, timeline wise might be hard). Anyone want to add any other leading lady?
Plot possibilities: Inspired by that one Young Justice ep? (The one where all the kids disappear into another dimension? Except in this one, it’s dudes going away and the ladies having to save the day.) Hmm.
Or I could just make it crack and have them all playing poker.
They’re ladies. They simply get shit done and worry about the hierarchy later ;) Or they elect Pepper, because she’s the actual CEO and probably the least “physically” dangerous.
You make a valid point. Pepper would rule the universe with scary efficiency.
I really, really wanna continue writing this Adaptation series right now (Batman/Superman/Avengers ‘verse stuff), and just write a long one-shot for each major leading lady in it. I’ve already done Selina Kyle, Natasha Romanoff, and Lois Lane. I wanna continue it with one for Pepper Potts and Jane Foster now (and maybe Darcy).
EXCEPT I HAVE FORBIDDEN MYSELF FROM WRITING ANYMORE FANFICTION UNTIL MY ORIGINAL NOVEL IS DONE.
But the muse! She is gnawing at the idea of this. Most crossover fics always focus on the guys interacting. I know that I’ve actually kept the interaction between the ‘verse at a minimum this far (the second fic, “Access and Recommend,” is really the only true crossover in the three fics thus far in the series), but I’m about to go hardcore into the crossover with the next fic. And i just really want the ladies interacting with each other. Selina and Lois? Yes, please. Lois and Pepper? Sign me up. Selina + Lois + Pepper = TAKE OVER THE WORLD. Add in Jane and THEY TAKE OVER THE UNIVERSE. maybe even Betty Ross, ‘cause why not? (Too bad Peggy would not fit in, timeline wise.)
I feel like I’d get a lot of requests to focus on the dudes more, the “true superheroes,” in which case I may have to cut a bitch if someone said that to me.
It’s not like I don’t focus on the guys. All my fics do, and they all are shippy, it’s just… I like female POVs more.
