[ Steph's been kind of quiet since Tim disappeared. It's probably for the best, honestly. He seemed so down after Bruce disappeared. But it's feeling a lot like a pattern now. ]

I never know whether to be happy or sad when people disappear from this place. I guess mostly I get worried. How's that porter-detector thingie working out? You know, the one that's supposed to notify your friends if you're really gone and not just kidnapped or dead?

[ There’s a quiet sound like rustling sheets as she pauses to turn over on her bed. ]

Well, either way. Happy holidays, everyone that's left. I don't guess anyone would want to go ice-skating with me?

Well that was... unsettling.

[ Steph flashes the camera an uncertain smile. She's out on the town, heading back to good old Batgirl house and sincerely hoping it hasn't really been that long. The video is as much to let anyone who might be paying attention know her location as to make sure nobody confuses her with any other Stephanie Brown with her voice. ]

I'm going to go ahead and assume I've lost my job, but how long has it been? What did I miss? The last I heard things were going sour in Venezuela.

Any, uh, departures or arrivals I ought to know about?

Who or what ever did this is going to get punched when I change back. Hard.

[ Steph, about ten years old, is surrounded by pillows and an odd purple glow cast by what appears to be a cloth backdrop. The small space is lit by a flashlight. It would seem... that she has built herself a pillow fort. Just because. ]

I'm scheduled to work! Now I have to try to call in favors via text, or else tell my coworkers I'm my niece or something. This is ridiculous.

[ A plate of waffles appears out of nowhere and lands on one of the pillows. Now she's having Ideas. ]

And we're out of chocolate chips. [ Or they're going to be. Very soon. Nowish. ] And m&ms.

[ Steph seems bemused, and at least mildly entertained. By what? Well, we’ll get to that in a moment. ]

I figured out the superpower thing.

[ She turns the camera around to show a coffee table. On the table sit three plates with fresh, steaming waffles piled high. She turns the camera back around to her face and explains dryly. ]

It’s waffles. My superpower is that I no longer have a valid excuse to go to a 24/7 waffle shop at 2am. Not that you really need an excuse at 2am.

I’m not sure how to feel about it. On the one hand, I could have had flight, or super speed, or any number of really cool super powers. On the other hand, I now have an infinite supply of waffles.

[ She stares off into space, considering the pros and cons with utter seriousness. On the other side of the camera is a sound like a pop, and then a plate clatering as it meets a table. Steph shrugs. Apparently she got distracted. ]

Either way, I guess I’m going to have to make a syrup run. I don’t suppose anyone would like to help me with these? They’re fresh!

[ooc | Housemate action/repeat waffle nomming totally acceptable on all accounts ]

[ The voice that comes over the network is young and female, but fairly calm and collected considering the circumstances. Just a bit tired. ]

This manual is kind of mean. But I have to ask, these events they have listed? A city being turned into a fantasy world? Dinosaurs? Is this serious? And uh, does that happen often?

[ Pages are turned or thrown around, it’s difficult to tell which. ]

I think I figured out the rest of it, mostly. The apartment’s actually pretty nice. Not sure about the superpower thing, but I guess I’ll find out later.

And I think I missed the part where they disproved the “kidnapped” theory. If anyone wants to weigh in on that, I’m all ears. It’s just that the last time I checked, “taken and held against your will” qualified. The lack of a gun to my head is nice, but it’s the principle of the thing, you know?

Tell me you're seeing this.

[Aliens. Shape-shifting aliens at that]

[Steph is all smiles and more than a little frazzled looking. There's a motorbike on her bed in the background which is why she's sitting on the floor surrounded by bags and boxes. Holding up a striped sweater in 'eggplant' she has clearly braved the crowds this morning]

I got this sweater from The Alley for $10. Practically a steal and so worth the near black eye from that seventy-year-old grandma. Don't worry, no one was hurt in the pursuit of bargains. I'm close to finishing my shopping and it's not even officially the weekend yet.

[She puts down the sweater and leans back with a sigh]

Okay, I should probably feel a little more guilty about doing the whole one am line thing, but I love bargains AND gift giving, so of course this was like the best morning ever!

[The video is dark, but not so dark that one can't see the debris of crushed buildings and small fiery flames lapping around. Batgirl is grinning, but it's forced and there's a lot of pain in her eyes for those that know her]

We, uh, we go home if we die, right? Or come back. I never asked and that's something I really should have-

[The ground shakes and for a moment she loses hold of the comm]

Okay, not to be dramatic but...okay I'm going to be dramatic now. I'm fairly certain losing feeling in part of your body is bad and that fire is about to make me a crispy bat, so, uh, this is Batgirl. Out.

[The video stays on, but the sound is off. To all Bat-Fam she's turned on her locator. The right side of her body is trapped under a large piece of wall and she's fairly exhausted from running around chasing swarm and making sure civilians didn't get themselves killed.

For clarity Damian will be saving her]

You know what I miss? I miss time with my favorite super, so I'm thinking you could join me next week for a day and night of fun and laughter at the Upstate Fair. You, me, rides, fried food, turtles, how can you say no!?

Hey Turtle Boy, I'm looking for two good looking green boys to escort me and a friend to the Upstate Fair. Game?

[Sure she had spent a few weeks having a bit of fun in the sun and generally enjoying an actual vacation, but that doesn't mean Batgirl gets a vacation even if she is slightly red godIhateyousomuchsun! Normally she's still swinging, or riding, but right now she's kicking the love of her life because the damn bike has locked her out.

At least it's stopped announcing her weight.]

Dick. I. Will. Kill. Him.

It's no use trying to talk me out of it either; he's going to die. Painfully.

[These eyes be glaring at YOU Damian Wayne]

I have patience in SPADES you demented little bird. There are certain things you just don't mess with in a girl's life and her bike is right on the top of the list.

You. Are. Dead.

We're off for two weeks with a friend of a friend.

[Cue Steph, all grown up again, sitting a large plate of nearly edible waffles down on the table. Of the three place settings, one has a handmade card with: Charlie on it. For having such a strange week Steph is smiling.]

That is not something I'm wanting to experience ever again. Can I just issue a network wide apology to anyone I may have annoyed this past week?

[She pauses and grins]

Okay, I may have had a bit of fun, but really my clothes cannot take my downsizing again. Anyone feel like shopping?

[Bat Encryption: Dick]

I'm gonna guess you need another week to finish my bike.

Unless of course mini you saved us the trouble.

[A small face pops up on the feed. This could be any child, but that bedroom in the background sure looks familiar to those in the know.]

Hey. Where are my parents? Is this a group home because there's LOTS of snoring coming from the other room next to mine.

[She sighs a bit and flops down on the bed. For waking up in a strange situation she sure doesn't seem too frightened or concerned]

Do I have to call my dad's stupid lawyer or is that his job? I'm pretty sure if I wait for my dad to do it I'll be stuck here forever.

Not that it's that bad.

You know, except for the snoring.

[There is so much frustration on this face you can't even imagine. Except you can since you can see it. Steph is far too upset to even remember to encrypt this

She's moving around tossing things in a box. These things are not hers.

Everything is Majors Norman's fault.]

I swear to God Charlie! I've asked you to pick this shit up and you don't. You're worse than a child I don't even know how Bab's dealt with you.

Oh, that's right, she didn't. She left me and Cass here alone to deal with you.

This whole stupid place is a sty and somehow I'm totally not surprised your room is the worst of all. When you get home today you won't be bouncing around the city doing god knows what in your stupid make believe cape. Room and homework. It's really not such a hard concept.

Look, I've already started by tossing this crap into storage.

Can you love a dream? I mean really love it enough to want to spend the rest of your life with this dream?

I've done the crush thing before, and it was fun, but this? So much more...more! I don't even know who this person or being is, but remember that dream...and that dragon...I'd never forget that dragon.

There has to be a way to find out where this dream came from because I know it can't be a figment of my imagination. Even my life can't suck that bad.

[Encrypted to Charlie]

You need to run a scan on O's systems, see if she has anything filed for dream manipulators.

Also, if you don't get your room cleaned you're not leaving the house.

[It's dark and we're in an alley. Hear that? That there is some ass kickin' going on. Apparently the comm was knocked to the ground during the melee, so occasionally you get visuals as well as sound.]

...Will you just sit! [SMACK!]

[There's muffled grunts and finally the comm is picked up by one of those masked people.]

Nice welcome back, I mean, really? Mugging? Do criminals just not realize how screwed they are in this place?

Okay, this crazy city thing is great. I mean, the whole fluffy tail thing sucked, but the bubbles were funny, and the sun is great! Of course I'm just taking this all in stride until the other shoe drops...

So, the number of that truck that hit me? That would be...a friend, but he wasn't himself because I don't think he would have done this if he had been.

Helena you're officially my new hero. Thanks for dragging my unconscious body to safety.

Hmm, think this would be a good excuse to miss school? Oh who am I kidding I don't go to school!

{{takes place at the end of this log and written by Dick-mun}}

[The screen is black for a few seconds; there’s heavy breathing in the background and then scuffling sounds, like someone’s fumbling with the comm. Some dim light flashes, and then there’s a loud crack as it hits the ground – the comm’s been thrown or someone dropped it.

When the screen clears there’s a figure crumpled in the far left of the frame on what appears to be a rooftop – she’s young and female and visibly bleeding - a few might recognize Stephanie Brown. Standing over her is a man wearing black spandex and a mask that covers most of his face. He crouches and rifles through her clothes with rigid, detached efficiency. His movements quicken after a few seconds; he’s clearly not finding whatever it is he’s looking for. Finally he looks to the left and notices the comm.

The gloved hand covers the screen, and then the video clicks off.]

[Hey look it's a very confused, very blonde, and kind of sweaty girl staring at you. There's also a bit of anger mixed in with the confusion and a dash of flattery at being called a 'hero']

Cute, really. I mean the whole set-up is fairly ingenious what with snatching people in the middle of a jog and tossing them god knows where. Best kidnapping I've ever had and let me just tell you I know kidnapping.

Okay, lets cut the cute and get to the gritty: Where the hell am I?

This place looks like Gotham and kind of smells like it too, but I'm fairly certain Gotham lacks a giant machine that goes around snatching people, calling them heroes, and tossing them out on their ass with bad jewelry.

Oh wait, it is Gotham I'm talking about so it's entirely possible.

[She squints as she leaves the building and her confusion becomes frustration because things look familiar, but they're not]

I swear to god if this is one of daddy dearests little jokes there will be ass-kicking and a lot of bleeding on his part!
