    Summary

    This is a total rewrite of Twilight but with healthier relationships, actual character development, and real vampire rules. Some character changes/ gender bending/ age changes/ minor name changes/ rearrangement of major plot events/ POV changes. Twilight would be enjoyable if it wasn't so disappointing. Edward is still a stalker but no longer abusive. Bella is going through her own issues but actually has character development. I invent some background for the other Cullens, trying to keep true to their general personalities.

    Summary

    Part one of Attraction to the Insane

    .xXx.

    They only ever had each other. It had been that way since high school, ever since Elianna transferred to dreary Arlen and took Jonathan under her wing.

    They go separate ways for college, and when they're reunited at Arkham Asylum professionally, Elianna comes to find that they've both changed during their time separated. Can she look past the promise of danger and stay by Jonathan's side as they slide further and further into the darkness while she grapples to come to terms with the truth about herself? Can she accept what needs to be done in order to hold onto the only person who holds any meaning in her life?

    .xXx.

    This is a very self-indulgent AU that draws from several different canons of the DCU and ignoring others, based in the Batman Begins Nolanverse. This will follow the plot of the movie, although the timeline has been very slightly tweaked.

    UPDATE: This fic is also available on Tumblr @gothic-safari-clown. If you want to ask questions or submit your own blurbs, or even just get bonus headcanons for Jonathan and El, go ahead and give me a follow over there!
