My babies

I miss Cass: she read and spoke in movement, she was bred and raised to be a weapon and instead chose to save lives, she knew the Bat and loved Steph.

And I miss Tim: he made himself a Detective because he loved Dick, he became Robin because somebody had to, he remained Robin because he didn't thought Tim would be loved.

And I miss Barbara: when the world tried to put her in a fridge, she made herself the world's most important hero.

Ficlet: Light (DCU, PG13)

Title: Light
Rating: PG13
Fandom: A very timeline-mixed DCU.
Summary: It's the JLA's job to save both entire worlds and individual lives. Sometimes it works the other way, too.
Author Notes: The JLA is from Morrison's early run, the rest of the world is just about pre-OYL.
Realization: That didn't look as crazy in my head as it does on the screen.

cass, can you not

From the bottom of my Babs-worshipping heart:

Fuck you, DC. Cass was Batgirl, too. I don't know or care *who* is the new person in the Batgirl suit. Maybe she's Babs. Maybe she's somebody else. Maybe she's somebody else I'll come to like like whoa. That's not the point.

The point, DC, is this: You drove Cass OOC. Then you made her kill. Then you made her bugfuck-insane-crazy OOC. And then you made a character say, with all the metatextual trappings of a "Look, in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane!," that he didn't see the "quiet, mopey one," that "the real Batgirl was back."

That's not how it works, DC. You don't get to *erase* somebody like that and then tell us that you are about *icons* and *legends*. Outside the trinity, you couldn't recognize iconic if it bit you in the ass.

I swear, there are months when fanfic is the only reason why I care about what DC is doing.
