Strong mood in the last ask, I desperately need to know what you originally planned for the last chapter??? Also is that tears in j's eyes in the wips?? It's getting me worried, (beautiful beautiful art my dear,Can't wait for the finished piece) seriously chapter 5 is one of my favorite chapters in all the fics I've ever read. 👏💜
Ok, ok. Since it’s you and you asked so nicely, I’ll tell you.
So this was all super planned out and ready to go until a while ago the plot told me to go fuck myself and I had to redo this entire section of the story, but BASICALLY Bruce was gonna visit Crane and it’d be like the scene in the posted chapter, except during that time an assassin or two were gonna sneak into the mansion and end up *whispers* killing Alfred. And J realised something’s up (didn’t quite figure out the detail for that one) and managed to get the cuffs off and tried to stop the assassin but didn’t quite make it in time, so just had a little torture fun time with them instead.
So, when Bruce came back, he’d see Alfred and go absolutely Batshit-uber-crazy and then he was gonna see J covered in blood and think it was Alfred’s and when J said it was the assassin’s, Bruce would go into a rage and attack J, who let him do it because he knows Bruce needed to let it out somehow. And when J’s asked why he killed them, he’d say it’s because Bruce would have done it otherwise and that’d make Bruce just break down and J would hold him and be there for him and…yeah. Super angsty.
But I just couldn’t do it. Firstly because I couldn’t bring myself to hurt Alfred like that. I luvs him too much, but also because I originally thought I needed something like that to make Bruce break down before he’d finally admit what he feels for J, but as the story’s gone on, they’ve kinda been getting there on their own and, also, I didn’t wanna cheapen what they have by basically saying “Bruce will only get with J if he’s desperate”. Because I don’t think that’s necessarily true and not the sorta message I wanna send. So, yeah. It ended up being what it is now and I’ll let you decide if it’s a good change or not.
As for the J pic, it’s smudged eyeliner and mascara from the rain, but it could also be tears if you like, because, y'know, there’s no such thing as too much angst.
Also omg there’s no way it could be that good! *cries forever*
