Rating/Warning(s): Explicit sex; secondary slash pairing with sex if that's not your cup o tea
Genre: Romance, Drama, ANGST
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This pairing would normally never, EVER cross my mind, but I LOVE AND ADORE the author (who's primarily known for her amazing DCU slash fiction), so I had to read this.
And I was BLOWN AWAY. It's a kickass Barbara Gordon facing off against a Bruce Wayne I had never seen before: vulnerable both physically AND mentally in addition to all that rage. I won't spoil how he gets this way, but as the author says, it creates the kind of circumstances where Bruce can SEE Barbara beyond Batgirl/Oracle, and their relationship progresses from there.
Oh, and it's SMOKING HOT. MY GOD THE SMUT. FabulaRasa NEVER disappoints in that regard. Plus, her grasp of the Bat!Family in general is SPOT-ON.
So give it a try, I promise this will get you hooked on this rare pairing!!

Mods, new pairing tag??
