Day of the Jaguar

by Darklady

Prologue and Introduction:

Pairs: Batman/Nightwing (Bruce Wayne/Richard Grayson)

Rated: About R. Some chapters are PG-13 (sexual reference) while others are R+ for sex and non-sexual bad language. While posted in chapters this work is to be viewed as a whole. All adult matter is an integral part of the story and necessary to plot and character development. Nothing her is intended to be prurient. If you are under the age of majority, however, my work is not for you. I would request that you leave now and return when you are more mature.

Location: All Bat-related characters may be assumed to be from the Comic universe, and the story to take place within two years or so of the current time. Sequential to Night of the Hornet, but not significantly related.

Slash: This story and it's associated stories evolve from an 'early-slash' universe in which there is never a paternal relationship between Bruce Wayne and Richard Grayson. After a period of interruption the relationship has resumed, and despite occasional difficulties they are an 'old married couple' - sort of.
