This fic is based off of characters in Abu Bakr ibn Tufayl's The Philosophical Tale of Hayy ibn Yaqzan, first published in the 12th century in Spain. The Philosophical Tale is itself a fanfiction of Avicenna's 11th century Persian Recital of Hayy ibn Yaqzan.
Both are available in English since the 16th century. Spellings vary. Slash goggles make ibn Tufayl's version significantly more enjoyable.

I do not have the words. )

I just had a really random thought about how to do a movie with Harvey Dent. For everyone else- have one version of the script. For the actor doing Harvey post-acid- have a script with two versions of each scene- one for if the coin lands good, and one for when the coin lands bad. Make him learn both, and then only when you start rehearsing with other actors do you tell him which is the 'real' version. Make him think about how both options are real and viable and how Two-Face encompasses both outcomes.

Obviously, the actor would hate you. But as a geek, it would be so damned cool.
