This bang has been running for over half a decade, and while it has always been very near and dear to my heart, the time has come for me to step away from modding it. My co-mod, shinysylver, has been a tremendous help through the years, but her comics love has always been Marvel-based; as such, she's making some decisions about the future of the Marvel bang, and I'm fully stepping aside from both challenges.

This leaves the DCU Big Bang with no mod. If you are interested in taking over, please PM me here on LJ or email dcubang@gmail.com. I'd love to see someone continue this challenge. Please be aware, though, that it's a lot of work throughout the challenge period, so if you don't have much free time, it might not be the role for you. At the same time, if you're interested in helping shinysylver with the Marvel side of things, please PM her.

My sincere thanks to everyone who has participated in this bang over the years, whether as a writer, accompanying fanworker, or reader. I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have.

Summary: Crown Prince Richard of Gotham is universally adored by his father’s kingdom. Well, except for his stunningly beautiful but not particularly personable stepmother. In the Queen’s eyes, no one deserves the throne more than her own son, Damian, and like a good mother she’ll do anything to give him the crown. Realizing her manipulations have not worked so far, Talia sends her huntsman, and Dick’s childhood best friend, Jason to dispose of Dick as the only one standing in the way of Damian’s reign on the throne. The battle for the kingdom is waged with blood and magic, and Dick must choose between his kingdom and the man he loves.

Rating: R

Summary: “I have a job for you. It’s different than your usual work, but you’re the only one I trust to do it.” He finally says. A less intelligent person would have been flattered at Dick’s words, but Jason knows what Dick really means is that the job is dangerous and Jason is the only one he knows who would be the least likely to die.
“What is it?” He asks suspiciously.
“I need you to make a delivery to Metropolis.”
“You’re aware you have the Travelers to do that for you, right?” Jason asks, sending Dick an incredulous look.
“The Travelers have never transported anything this valuable before.”
“Okay,” Jason replies slowly. “Well what is it?”
“It’s a who actually. His name is Tim.”

Title: Different Kinds of Value
Author name: Skalidra
Beta name: Firefrightfic
Characters/Pairing: Dick Grayson/Slade Wilson, Sladin
Fandom/Universe: Comics, Space/Talon AU
Rating: PG13
Word count: 18.5k
Warnings: None
Summary: When Slade gets hired for a job on the outskirts of civilized space, one of his first steps is to stop by one of the few space stations out this far and pick up a slave from the dealer there. Something pretty and ideally off-the-grid, to serve as a distraction for his target. He gets a little more than he was expecting in the form of a capital-planet slave, bizarrely far away from anywhere it should call home and just disobedient enough to make him interested.
