Summary: Rating: PG
Summary: You know the moment when you're about to die and your life flashes past in front of your eyes? Well, if you're Ra's al Ghul, that's a lot of lifeâ€¦ and deathâ€¦ and life againâ€¦
Notes: Based on the Beginsverse and pretty loosely rooted in canon, this is one of several alternate backstories for the man who introduced himself as Henri Ducard. I wrote it a while ago actually, and then never thought to post it hereâ€¦
Warnings: Character death (d'oh) and extremely obscure European history â€“ regrettably, my Ducard!muse is not the most coherent of narrators when he's aboard a derailed monorail train, so you'll all have to put up with his flashbacks. I'm a bit of a loose cannon with canon, but all historical figures are pretty damn historical (special thanks to Little Owl for supplying me with Achatius Tott!), the quote is actually Marat and not Ra's al Ghul, and the painting of Marat dead in his bathtub is here

Notes: A ficlet inspired by the wonderful nest my Padawan builds for me every time I visit her. Hers has, at various points in time, involved actual bedding as well as rugs, robes, and a sheepskin. Alas, neither of us keeps a nice toasty half-naked Ducard in our beds.
