January started out well with a new arc of Rainbow’s Freedom (Clark/Bruce) begun! Arc the Sixth (The Jewel In The Crown) is on a good pace.
More Clark/Bruce: We Never Leave A Man Behind.
Clex made a return with Light’s Promise, a birthday fic for ctbn60.
Public Enemies stories were:
Gold Turned To Straw, a very dark AU (Mel/Johnny/Billie).
Golden Morning, a sweet drabble (Mel/Johnny).
Going Home, a reflective story from Johnny’s POV about his life with Mel.
Courage: Mel faces death in a dirty alley (Mel/Johnny).
From Romania With Love, a Valentine’s tale about Johnny/Billie for my 2010 Guns_Fedoras Public Enemies Fic/Art Valentine’s Day Challenge.
Paid In Full, another dark AU, a Billie-centric story that also alludes to Mel/Johnny/Billie and Mel/Johnny.
Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang!!!, a Mel/Carter story that takes place before the events of the film, a birthday fic for khylara.
I also wrote an essay, Southern Honey, about Christian Bale’s performance as Melvin Purvis.
While it appears that Public Enemies far out-paced DC, 2 of the 3 DC stories were multi-chaptered and PE were one-shots.
