Shutting Doors is a Batman/Robin slash story by James Walkswithwind that appeared in Compounded Interest in 1996.

It is based on the movies, especially Batman Forever, and was first published to the net in 1995 (or was it just written in 1995?) and later revised in 1999. Shutting Doors is a first time story told from Dick Grayson's POV and was widely recommended on the slash recs pages of the 90s.

Destina called it the ultimate Batman/Robin slash fic and said that The plot is outstanding, and touches on a number of themes -- tension, angst, love...all the things I like best. This one deserves to be famous.[1] allaire mikháil described it as a coming-of-age story that heavily influenced her view of Robin in the Batman-universe.[2] The summary at JR's Parlor says This novel-length story weaves expertly in and out of the third and forth movies and takes its time to chronicle the progression of the relationship between the dynamic duo. Simply wonderful, and it has several sequels, too![3]
