Tell me again, why do I need one of these things?

It's Midnight and Miami - Count the Homicidal Maniacs (okay, Dexter is a very tidy homicidal...)

After talking The Authority with _unhurt_ with special reference to everybody's favourite batman killer-replacement, the Midnighter. The Midnighter, for the benefit of people unfamiliar, is a) very lethal b) prone to monologue and c) has a nifty (if bloody) line in sarcasm and general snark.

Laying in bed last night (as you do) I realised I knew somebody else who meets conditions a) very lethal b) prone to monologue and c) has a nifty (if bloody) line in sarcasm and general snark.

Which asks the question - why hasn't the Midnighter met Dexter?

They like the same sort of things - electric turkey carvers, chloroform, sneaking around murderously - and they both have a Code, whether this is the code of Harry or the code of only killing evil bastards (heavily implied). They both love their job, are good with children and bad haircuts (not that you see Mid without his mask much).

Personal canon dictates that the Midnighter - on the rare occasions he takes his mask off on-page or tries to go incognito - always has a bad dye job and a dubious haircut; just never the same bad dye job/ haircut. Maybe Apollo does it for him - he probably knows more than the Authority girls about conditioning and split ends. This isn't a bit homosexual type-casting so much as the result of analysing the various female team members:
Jenny Sparks - forget it, sunshine
Swift - I'm going to do some meditation and follow the wind
Angie - Uh, this Scientific American is totes more interesting
Jenny Q - But my dad does that. Anything I can do to piss him off more?

Okay, and that's your lot for now - Midnighter meets Dexter - hopefully delicious.

p.s. given that book!Dexter at least is slightly odd about sex (it's being normal, which is a biggie in the Code of Harry) and maintaining his camouflage girlfriend , maybe he should meet somebody who likes odd sex. If lit_gal can pull off Dexter/Spike, surely somebody has tried this (hopefully?) pls?
