Title: Nightminds

Page/Word count: 101 pages/48,452 words

Author: Spygirl690

Rating/warning: NC-17 for violence, language, drug use, and graphic sex scenes. These are gay sex scenes (guy on guy) if that freaks you out, kindly go read something else.

Characters/Parings: Bruce Wayne, Jack Napier

Summary: This is set before Batman Begins and was inspired by the characters created in Christopher Nolan’s Universe. Bruce goes back to Princeton to figure out to follow in his family’s footsteps but finds someone who shows him a different path.

Disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters. The title comes from the song Nightminds by Missy Higgins – a song I thought fit this story and the paring quite well.

Authors note: There is so much I want to say because this took me so long to write. All I can say is thank you for your patience. Any and all constructive input on my writing is welcomed.

I have uploaded the PDF file to several download sites. Please let me know if one of the links are not working. Feel free to pass this story to anyone via email or whatever but kindly include a link to my journal so they can leave me some feedback.

SOME PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME THAT THE LINKS DO NOT WORK. PLEASE COMMENT WITH YOUR EMAIL AND I WILL SEND YOU A PDF OR WORD COPY ASAP. I DID UPDATE THE GOOGLE DOCS LINK.

Also - I really enjoy creating soundtracks for fanfiction. As I was editing I thought of a few songs that would go well for them.

Sia ~ Breath Me
The Flys ~ I Got You Where I want You
Sarah Mclaughlin ~ Possession

What do you think?

Did you post the beginning of this before? I am sure I read it once! Can't wait to find out how it ends. :-D

Yes I posted it almost 2 years ago and just finished it. I can't wait to hear your thoughts. :)

Finished it tonight. Well done! I loved all the twists and turns in the plot. And I like how it ended with each of them internalizing a bit of the other. Jack holds onto a piece of Bruce's warmth and humanity, and Bruce learns to embrace his dark side a bit more. It was so tragic. I'd love to find out what goes through Bruce's head when he finally meets Joker again!

Ha Ha! I honestly didn't realize that until you mentioned it! I definitely let Jack and Bruce control where I went with my writing. It is always so interesting what comes out when you let the characters talk to you instead of putting words in their mouths.

I may write a second part in a bit but for now I wanted to keep Nightminds as the only piece of a larger story. From the moment I started writing this I envisioned how part II would be. I believe that Bruce wouldn't recognize Jack, he would have to put the pieces together. Also Jack has obviously underwent some extreme changes from where I left his character in Nightminds to who he becomes in The Dark Knight. I do think it is worth exploring if a relationship could even develop between them. Bruce is even more damaged in TDK. How could he forgive Jack for all of the things he did in TDK? Interesting questions indeed. ;o)

So far I've enjoyed this a lot. It's a very, very interesting story, and you've managed to create a rather unique interaction between these guys, so yeah, I'm really enjoying this.

I however, couldn't help but to notice a couple of mistakes in your spanish. If you want, I can point them for you, if not, don't worry. They don't really interrupt the story in any way.

It would be a pain to re-upload everything but I wouldn't mind knowing the mistakes. I have a cousin who is fluent but he never had time to look at it. *boo* I'm glad you are enjoying it so far. :)

That was wonderful! I remember when you first posted it and I am so happy that you were able to finish it. The way you wrapped it up just made it seem as if it could fit perfectly into cannon.

Interaction was beautiful, and I loved how twisted Jack was. Plots within plots. I almost want to see your version of Batman's first encounter with the Joker, years later.

I am so glad that you enjoyed it. I had lots of fun writing it. The editing bit, not so much! But it put up lots of challenges, namely writing the sex scene. I didn't want to do the typical graphic "Insert part A in part B" kind of sex since I had kind of already did that with their earlier interactions.

I actually made an in-depth reply to chickenpattysan (see above) about my thoughts for a sequel. I do want to write one. I am just a little exhausted with J&B right now. :op Again, thank you so much for reading. It's people like you who help us fanfic writers power through the rough times.

This file won't work on my computer :(. It's just an error message every other page and only a few sentences show up.

Hi. Late commenter/joiner-of-the-community is SUPER FREAKING LATE. But seen as how all I've done in the past few days of finding this community is lurk like the creepiest lurker there is, I figured I should start at least leaving feedback. And I couldn't have picked a better story to start with. Your character portrayals were beautiful; I know it's a really cliche thing to psycho-analyse the joker and his past, but you were wonderful - not too sentimental, it could have fit right into canon. And I love how real it all feels, that's always a mark of a truly great fic. In short, I love this, I love YOU and if you ever got round to writing a sequel I'd be the happiest person ever if you could send me the link :)
