Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize is mine. Including the odd movie line; I like to work quotes in here and there if I can. Usual canon-compliant violence and a fair warning for angst. Also, everything I know about lawyering I learned from John Grisham books, so.
Summary: Set post S1. Daredevil may be the Man Without Fear, but Matt Murdock is terrified. Especially when the law isn’t enough and Daredevil can’t save everyone. It’s said that there is someone in Hell’s Kitchen who will hear a cry for help, but what if the person calling out is Matt? Who saves him when Daredevil can’t?
Author’s Note: I decided I had another DD fic in me, since I can’t seem to be able to shake my fascination with Matt Murdock. Turns out it was a case-fic dancing around in the corridors of my brain, so for you fellow h/c junkies, this is one of those slow-builds, but I hope the h/c you’ll find in the latter chapters is satisfying enough to balance the overall story.
Oh, also. Some who reviewed my last Daredevil story asked for more Karen and the best way I could think to bring her into the mix a bit more was for her to discover the truth. So posting a warning for post-S1 AU-ishness (what? it’s a thing) on the Karen front. Many, many sincere thanks to thruterryseyes for her sanity check. If you read, I hope you enjoy.
Author PSA: Several of you have told me the reason you ‘followed’ me as an author was due to my Supernatural fanfic and you’re disappointed when you see a fic from a different show pop up in your author alerts. Rest assured that I have not abandoned our Winchester boys; I will still be writing the weekly Rambles once the show comes back as well as any stories when inspirations strikes. But lately, I’ve been inspired to spend time other fandoms such as The Musketeers and now Daredevil. I apologize for disappointing you and hope that if this story is not to your liking, you’ll return when there is a Supernatural story ready to read.
