    Summary

    There are two Gothams. There is the Gotham City established by the Wayne, the Cobblepot, and the Elliot families and known for its high population density with an even higher crime rate. There is also the Gotham City conceived by the Court of Owls and continuously governed from the shadows by the mysterious parliament. Which one is the real Gotham?

    Is the common or fantastical city real? For most cities, the truth exists somewhere between fact and myth. The line is blurred in Gotham City by its history with caped crusaders and capricious criminals. Making the distinction between misconception and truth is an arduous task.

    When Jason Todd discovers that one of the city’s urban legends is more fact than myth, the local priest toes the line between worlds. Taking in the wounded Talon, the two begin an unusual living arrangement. Balancing a normal life with nursing an urban legend, Jason tries to maintain his normal life - whatever counts for normal in Gotham anyway.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Jason's spent the last five years trying to stay out of Superman and Batman's war of ideologies, but when Damian tracks him down his days of impartiality are numbered.

    One way or another, he's going to have to make a choice.

    Summary

    "The fall of Uzushio collapsed our economy, our protections. You might think I'm being rosy, but they really cared about us. And they knew how to party. You know they had a seal that could swap body parts? Wildest night of my life,” the boatman’s eyes go distant for a long moment, “...but you kids are too young to hear about that.

    “Anyway,” he continues, “our economy’s been a shambles since; maybe gets going for a year or two before it collapses again. No security of stability, so assholes like Gato think they can waltz in here and take charge. Boy, he'd be singing a different tune if the Uzumaki were still around."

    Sakura’s eyes widen a bit at that, and even Sasuke looks up. Naruto opens his mouth to say something, but Kakashi puts a firm hand on his shoulder.

    “What an… illuminating piece of history,” says Kakashi, “Thank you for sharing.”

    -----

    (Kiri may have won the battle, but not the war. The island of Uzushio might not be as dead as previously believed.

    All Kakashi knows now is that he really should have refused that mission to Wave.

    An island lives, people change, foxes laugh, and Team Seven goes on a wild journey!)
