Here’s a primer for those new to the John Blake/Bane fandom. There are so many amazing stories in this fandom but a lot are non-con.

 For those starting out in this new tiny fandom, here are some stories that don’t start off dark and end darker.

Maybe He’s Born With It. Maybe It’s Tequila.

John’s not out at his gym. But everyone’s a little gay on Halloween, right? An AU inspired by Warrior and binge watching RuPaul’s Drag Race in more or less equal measures.

Beyond Your Peripheral Vision

Bane probably could have gotten over this stupid infatuation. Maybe picture John when he’s jerking off, then and be able to move on. Until that smile; it spreads across his whole face and he has dimples. He looks so innocent and earnest that Bane feels his chest clench

Bane is in town and sneaks into John’s apartment window when he’s sleeping. What he leaves with is far more than either he or John expected.

Gattino  by:sweetbutterbliss

He was amused to see that it had taken both of his brothers to bring the man into the room, and   was still struggling, his eyes fierce and his feet kicking out angrily. Bane laughed, he was tired of sycophants and grovelers. This man, who appeared too outraged to even feel any fear, was a breath of fresh air. He would most certainly look forward to getting to know him.

Arthur is working a job with his ex and Eames just can’t handle it. Or Eames acts like a big jealous baby. 

A Bear is For Life, Not Just for Christmas
by: Dangereuse

Bane’s never gone through mating season with an actual mate before.

The League of Shadows does recruiting through craigslist, who knew?

    The Unbearable Fierceness of Reckoning

     Tether  by: Menirva (Currently a WIP that updates weekly)

The red string of fate connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.No matter how hard Bane, Blake, and Barsad try to tear it apart.

    Light Weight

It’s not that John absolutely has to shoot Bane. It’s just that he really, really wants to.

    Good Morning, Magpie
    by: Corvin

While in the orphanage, John always knew he wanted to make the world a better place - through Education! Getting to the hearts of troubled kids like himself and giving them proper values.

And so he teaches in one of Gotham’s schools.It’s Parents Day, and one of his most favorite students brings their dad - Drug Lord Bane. Bait and Switch

by: Sibilant (WIP but Barsad’s POV is hilarious)

Blake is a too-trusting fool who puts himself out of commission. But Bane is always ready with a back up plan, and Barsad is his ever-loyal, long-suffering follower (or: The Misadventures of Barsad-wing, Defender of Gotham). Sheer, unadulterated crack.


by: d00m

Blake was positive that despite all of his years of training; Bane had not been prepared for that.But wasn’t he the one who said that theatricality was a powerful agent?

Seriously, though there’s another part of Bane/John Blake a darker side… stories that you need to read but they do go into non-con territory. Fall in love with John Blake and Bane first then I shall invite you down the path… to some more amazing stories.
