Thursday; 3-16-2006; 16:26

Still recovering from Crane's gas, I've been roaming around the tower more exhuasted than usual. Needless to say I'm more surprised that I'm even... well WALKING about.

I have a feeling it's only temporary, but that's more than fine with me. Actually having the ability to walk again has been... amazing. I mean I've been able to actually... WIGGLE my toes for a while now.. but THIS?

I could have never dreamed of.

Brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.

What brought it on? I know for a fact it was the antidote that Cassandra gave to me. I remember daddy saying that it was made with an essence from the Lazerous pit.

Lucky me, right?

When I woke up after my thirteen hour slumber, I found myself hazily speaking with her.

She told me that she had to go.... "It's something I have to do. I'm sorry, mentor." And with that she made her vaulting escape...



Friday; 3-17-2006; 20:12

I haven't slept since I initally woke up the previous day. My eyes are watering, my body's aching. I need sleep... and bad.

I've been more concerned over Cassandra's whereabouts, though. I've been trying to trace her through GPS positioning, but nothing is coming up.

I have a feeling that she doesn't want to be found.

She must have disabled her tracer--

"Oracle.......!" The signal is weak and muffled.

"Trace..... coordinates.....Shiva-- Send help."

It's only a matter of seconds, but the line goes dead before I can respond back to her.

I swear under my breath and sit straighter. I'm definitly a lot more alert than I was about five minutes ago.

"Cass--!? Are you there?"

No response.

Another curse.

Promptly, I pull up her coordinates and get Canary on com.

Today's her birthday. I bet you she thought I forgot.

I made sure to leave her a little note in essence:



"Here's hoping you got that file....

"Oh! And I fixed your communicator too." I was watching a small blinking of a green light on my computer screen: Cassandra's exact location.

"Now that the birthday wish out of the way," I said promptly. "...I have a mission for you-- Cassandra's in trouble and she needs help. I'm sending you her coordinates. I trust you can find her."

Minor OOC Note [17 Mar 2006|09:05am]
[ mood | busy ]

Just as a warning, I wanted everyone else to know who reads this, that I'll still most definitly be playing Oracle, but some of the things that will be written here will probably be concering other characters from another RP world that's based off of LiveJournal itself.

i.e. Different Batman, some different issues...

However it'll be a collab with anything that happens with other characters here to her chaarcter there. If that makes sense?

I figured I'd just keep her thoughts and such here. I didn't want to waste another journal because I thought if anything this would be a good way to mesh.... things.

Anything involving anything within keystone_city and sages_of_chaos will be stated as such.

And no this shouldn't effect things here too much. I'm not planning on letting it. :)

Thanks again.

Metropolitian Visit [01 Nov 2005|09:47pm]
[ mood | calm ]

{Placing this on the time line BEFORE Dick got zapped into a toddler. Barb is still in the alter dimension.}

The ride to Metropollis didn't seem as long as she orginally thought. The ride was actually more pleasent than anything. She had wonderful company and the scenery wasn't that bad to look at.

As soon as they passed the "Welcome to Metropolis" sign, the City of Tommorrow seemed to sparkle and glitter with a golden hue off in the distance.

Barbara turned to Dick with a curious eyebrow. "Has it always been this picturesque here or is that just my eyes playing a trick on me?"

She smirked, drumming her fingers on the arm rest of the vehicle. her toes swaying back and forth ever so slightly with the music. It was nice to have regained the feeling in her legs again. She was just anticipating the moment that she'd be able to walk anywhere on her own.

It would take time. That she knew. She couldn't rush it.

"So... is there a Superman that flies over this city or what...?"

Jumping Realms [21 Oct 2005|07:49pm]
[ mood | cranky ]

I receievd a com call from Dick the other night, asking if I could jump dimensions for a while and spend some time with him in his world.

Naturally? I complied. I've been wanting to see the differences between his world and mine for some time now. Just so I can get a first hand account of everything.

While in the cave, Dick was sweet enough to "help" me up a few stairs. The feeling in my legs is starting to come back little by little, and more so each day. I'm getting to the point now where I can somewhat push myself with my feet still sitting in my wheelchair.

(Which is more than I could have even thought about doing before hand..)

We ended up taking a tour of Gothamn in search of his world's Barbara and Commissioner Gordon.

The place that wee were lead to turned up being a dead end. When i turned to Dick, it seemed like he was discouraged... and in away, I was as well. I'd love nothing more to help him find the ones he called "family" in this world. It's just so hard for me to think he may truely be alone... Even though I know that we're never turely alone. However.. the physical world has a tendency of messing you up like that.

Dick asked me if I could use my skill and hack into the GCPD's police files.

I nodded to him. "Of course. I'd have to get back into the cave though." I couldn't use the little car's laptop. It wasn't configured right.

Before long we were back in the cave and I was sitting in front of the moniter, typing away at the keys.

Dick ran off to get cleaned up while I continued to fish around and locate the proper information.

{This world is doomed enough as it is. I wonder what it would be like to conquer this dimension. I say we--}

Without thinking, I yelled. "SHUT UP." Becoming cross I typed the keys harder, trying to ignore the voice.

{How DARE you interrupt me, GIRL. I give you the ultimate gift and THIS is how you repay me?}

"What are you talking about?"

There!

I squint, reading quietly. "Commissioner Gordon was relocated to the Metropolis division?" Now there was sosmething interesting.

{You are able to feel your lower extermities now, aren't you?"

I waved a hand passively, carring on a conversation with this voice that only I seemed to hear. "Well.. DUH?"

{You should be thanking me.}

I gave no answer. Time to ignore him now....

I could only hope Dick didn't hear any of that. "Hey Dick--?"

Good News is Good News [15 Oct 2005|06:23pm]
[ mood | awake ]

Dick dropped by last night unexpectantly. It's always great seeing him again. Of course, when he dropped in, wearing his Robin suit I naturally thought it was Tim. Boy how was I ever so wrong.

I got to share a bit of good news with him which-- couldn't have made me happier.

All of the tingling, the itching that's been going on with my legs the past few days?

I.... have feeling again in my legs. I can *move* my toes!

I simply can't believe it. I mean I was told I would never regain the feeling but...

Wow.

And to think this all could have been brought on by Brainiac?

With Dick's help I was even able to stand for a few moments. I know I'm not going to be able to do it on my own for a while... but he's agreed to help me to regain that.

It's too exciting to think that perhaps in a few months, I'll be able to actually *walk* down the street instead of sitting in this chair and rolling down it.

Robin commed in last night. I had no idea he was out in Keystone. Him, Bruce, Dinah... I think the only one here is Helena and Cassandra. Then again I haven't heard from Cass in two weeks. I hope she's alright. I know she's a big girl and can take care of herself, but still I worry about her. She's only lived with me for more than a year.. I've only taught her.... HOW much?

Our bonds are tight and I know our relationship with one another is a two-way thing. I should try contacting her...

Anyway, Tim gave me some interesting news. VERY interesting news.

Ted Kord. Our resident Blue Beetle is in fact *alive.* He's mobile, freely speaking and seems to be quite aware of what's happened to him.

The only mystery seems to be of how he came back to be alive again and how he got to where he was.

That'll have to be investigated later, I pressume.

Dick's still in the back sleeping, I'm sure he won't mind I'm up and about. I'm just glad Bruce is in Keystone right now. If he suddenly dropped in and saw I wasn't resting? My keester would be turned into bat-grass.

I wonder if Dinah's around.

I quickly bring up her via computer. I need to talk to her. She'd want to know about all of this anyway.

"Dinah? It's Babs. You there?"

Home [14 Oct 2005|09:50pm]
[ mood | confused ]

It feels so good to be home for once. Not that I didn't mind my stay up in the Watchtower. It... was nice to get out of the confides of the tower, but yet, I still missed this place.

With the soft humming of the cooling fans sitting ontop of my motherboards encased in their shells, I give a soft smile as I roll myself into the kitchen.

I feel good.

And the "tatoo" I had on my arm? It's completely gone.

No more circuits sticking out of my skin.

Oh joy, right?

Yeah. My thoughts exactly.

Here's something else that I've discovered:

My legs ITCH.

Afterward [09 Oct 2005|05:47pm]
[ mood | bored ]

So the surgery was apparently as successful as anyone could hope for. I had quite a talk with Ray earlier in the day when I happened to fully wake up from one of my medical induced naps.

"Were there any complications?" I asked, still trying to wake up. Could only sleep for so long and my body felt rady to get out of bed. "What happened while I was under?"

"Well," Ray started with a grunt. "Everything at first was going fine that was until I found the core. I had a hell of a time trying to defend myself." He motioned to the switch board off a ways. "I stayed in constant radio communication here, I'm sure the aduio feed should be avaliable for you if you'd like to review it."

"Maybe later." I commented.

He smiled a bit and pulled up a chair next to me, looking to the bouquet of yellow roses sitting beside my bed. "These are goregous."

"Aren't they?" I smiled, still dazed. "Dick brought them." He also came to visit me some time after I woke up for the first time. I still can't believe he stayed the entire time.

I made sure I sent him to bed though. Poor thing looked like he hadn't slept in days. And knowing him? He probably didn't.

"I won't like to you, Barbara." Ray said softly. "There were a few times where I didn't think I'd make it out of there in one piece. Those nano-probes that were inside you? They.... didn't do as much damage as we thought. Which is always something good. They were tough and they didn't seem like they wanted to leave their host.

"When I first when in and removed the first... I guess it triggered them all-- once I got to the main 'key' I was able to shut them all down and dissrupt all of their components at the same time. it was... just hell getting to the core, like I said."

I raised an eyebrow at the matter. She went to open her mouth to speak, but was quickly silenced by Ray's voice.

"AND don't you dare apologize." He wagged his finger. "I was more than happy to do it. I'm... just glad you're okay." He leaned over and gave me a hug.

I can't believe I know such wonderful people...

"Thank you, Ray. Really."

He nodded. "Anytime." He stood, putting the chair back where it came from. "And you can go home tommorrow... but I don't want you doing anything like-- lifting a three hundred ton car, okay?" he winked.

I gave a weak lauh. "I have no intensions on it."

"And.. if you have any more questions, need anything else clarified, let me know and I'll be more than happy to assist. You get some rest, okay?"

"I can't promise that." I smirked, giving a slight wave.

Hmm...

Kind of hungry... I wonder if anyone'll let me eat....

Beyond the Knife [05 Oct 2005|07:31pm]
[ mood | cranky ]

I can see Superman's lone figure standing just beyond the glass. Supervising, making sure nothing's to go wrong. They're prepping me now and put me under. I'm trying to force my eyes to stay open so I can watch the proceedure, but in the back of my mind, I know I'm not going to be able to.

{Do you know what it feels like to be placed under anesthesia, but still be awake in the process?}

The voice. HIS voice is speaking to me again.

Damn you, Brainiac.

Superman's figure is the last figure I see before my eyes shut completely. "Don't worry Barbara. You're in good hands."

What was that last part he said? I couldn't understand him too well.

My mind shoots back to Brainiac. No.

{Let's find out, shall we?}

What does he mean by that?

I can feel the blood corsing through my veins at a faster pace. It's his probes. That damn virus. He's activated something.

I can feel something being placed over each of my eyelids. It doesn't take me long to figure out exactly what it is.

Medical tape.

~"Scalpel..."~

The pain that comes soon after it's horrifying. I can't move. I can't scream-- but hell--

The next image I see is Brainiac's form in front of me and me? I'm standing. On my legs, but yet I'm in pain.

{Let's make a deal, Miss Gordon....}

News in the Med Bay [30 Sep 2005|01:15am]
[ mood | calm ]

Feel like I've been cooped up here too long. Not that I don't mind the random superhero visitors tending to me left and right.. it's just.. WEIRD to be relying on these people while I'm laying here basically bed ridden.

And of course with Clark knowing me too well he's placed my wheelchair in another room so I won't be tempted to "leave" prematurely.

...they've thought of everything

My surgery isn't supposed to happen for another two hours...

I'm not worried. I know I'm in well hands.

I did get a minute to check the news and THIS came through the Gotham Gazette website.

The news is truely exciting. I'd love to be a part of this somehow.

I have a feeling I'd have to talk to Bruce about this....

Of course, he's going to tell me: "You need to get better first."

Typical Bruce.

No matter how many times he's been a complete ass, he's still one of the sweetest men I know. (Next to my daddy of course...)

Maybe I can flag him down before this operation to talk about it....

Wonder where he ran off to. Coulda sworn I seen him walk off down the hall.

Never Home [27 Sep 2005|08:46pm]
[ mood | complacent ]

I only seemed to stay home long enough to gather a few items before Wally wisked me away to the watchtower.

He was right there when I opened the doors, sitting on my couch. "Get your things." he told me. "We're leaving."

I tried to argue with him, telling him I had some things I had to do.

"NO. Babs. This needs to be taken care of now. Grab your laptop, some clothes and let's go."

I figured it better to just do better as he asked.

I had a lovely evening with Dick, I still can't seem to get it out of my mind. I learned a lot about him within those few hours. So much devistation has come to him, but yet he's over-taken it like it was no one's business. His determination and drive keep him on his toes-- and I can see it's going to take him a lot of places. Maybe not now... but in the future, I can definitly see a lot of good coming from him.

He'll find his place soon, I'm sure.

He told me about how he didn't think his world held much for him and how he thought about leaving to another world.

Naturally I offered for him to come here. Stay with me. I don't know if he'll take me up on the offer, but I made sure to let it stand.

Sitting here in the infirmary, they've at least given me acess to the computer to trickle away at my boredom. So many have already come in to see me.

Atom's been in and out of here-- as has Superman. They keep making notes on their clipboards and telling me things as they find them.

"There definitly is something inside of you, Barbara." Superman started. "I can see the probes as clear as day, running through your bloodstream."

I shudder at the thought. "Great."

"We're going to have to go in and get rid of them." Superman gave Atom a pat on the shoulder. "This is where Ray comes in....."

When i turned my head, I could have sworn I saw Bruce's form...

Then again... I could have been mistaken...

On the Town [21 Sep 2005|08:24pm]
[ mood | giddy ]

Despite my head pounding and my skin on my right arm starting to vanish to reveal the advanced circuitry beneath, I managed to get myself into something decent for tonight.

{Perhaps something green, Oracle...}

I'm not sure what provoked me to listen to the voice, but I ended up in a green velvet dress. At least it... kind of blends with the "circuit" growing from my arm.

Dick and I have.... heh... a date. Something that I would have never thought of happening. I mean, not since things with my world's Dick Grayson turned sour. We're still close.... and I still care for him, but things really haven't been the same.

It's weird though. Even when I'm around this Dick, he actually makes my heart flutter. (Not many can do that, I'm afraid.)

I guess I'm just waiting for his call now so I can transport him here. I won't lie. I'm nervous....

Circut Problems [20 Sep 2005|11:16pm]
[ mood | crappy ]

The burning in my arm has grown worse over the last tweleve hours. Instead of itching, it's now burning. The shape is starting to resemble a circuit board. It's strange. I have *BUS* lines and resistors on my ARM.

Inhale.... exhale.

I was talking with a girl by the name of Claire in the Nexus earlier and she put some blue herbs on it to try and make the itching and burning stop. I hate to say it, but her remedy didn't work. I don't even think it phased it in the slightest. It was incrediably sweet of her to try, I'll admit that.

I've also seemed to develop a bit of a migraine within the last couple of hours-- not to mention a slight fever with a faint buzz in my ear.

Ever since that last battle I've had with Brainaic, a lot of strange things have been happening--

Oh..... no--

Braniac--

I should have known. That arrogant idiot!

Bruce-- Clark?

I could use one of you guys right about now...

*giggles* [20 Sep 2005|04:21am]
[ mood | energetic ]

I can't believe this....

I... just agreed to a date with Dick.

NO.. NO. Not THAT Dick. The one I was speaking about earlier. From the alternate world--

This should be interesting. personally, my cheeks won't turn from their crimson state I'm so excited.

Oh Gods.

Get a hold of yourself, girl. You're acting like a school girl.

I'm... just hoping that things with him won't be like how they were with my world's Richard.

Silently, i'm still having a hard time "moving on" with things. That is normal, isn't it?

For some reason my arm's been bothering me again. It... itches so bad....

It's really starting annoy me...

Another World [20 Sep 2005|12:22am]
[ mood | busy ]

It's been an interesting last couple of days. A lot of unexpected things have been popping up all over and around.

I've visted another world, much like our own. Just a place where others from multiple dimensions can come and... hang around. The proper term for this place is a "Nexus." Really interesting collaboration of characters there.

I... even got the chance to meet an alternate version of Dick. He's..... so sweet. So... innocent and get this? He's still Robin. His world's Bruce and Alfred passed on due to the cave's collapse in the earthquake-- I'm aussuming that his earthquake was from that from which No Man's Land started.

It's so hard for me to think of Bruce gone. It's... seriously, a completely different world.

Anyway, he ended up in a coma for six years and he just woke up recently. I gave him a communicator in case he ever needed someone to talk to or... just anything at all.

I'm hoping he calls. He's a wonderfu soul to talk to.

While in the Nexus, I also happened to meet Clark in there. THIS world's Clark. I know. I know. I'm pretty shocked, myself. I didn't think anyone from our world would ever show up there. I'm assured now though. At least when I go to get away from the horrible reality of this world, I know I'll have an ally over there from this to somewhat.. "guide" me around. (Per se.)

I'm starting to wonder how many of us know about this place. I'm keeping my eye out for others moreso now. It should be interesting enough.

In the back of my mind I'm wondering if I should drag Dinah there. I'm sure she'd have a blast...

Start your Engines [18 Sep 2005|01:51am]
[ mood | bored ]

So once again I've gotten into the jist of this internet journaling thing. I've done it once, gave it up, and finally decided to come back to it. If anything, I think it'll be good for me. It'll give me a chance to vent and more important enough, stay in touch with a few good friends here. And who knows, even make a few more of my own.

I've tried to touch basis with some others that I knew, but it seems that they've disappeared. There's a few I'd love to find. Kara being one, Dinah being another. But then again, knowing Dinah, she's probably staying far far away from this place. She never was a huge techno-buff. That was always my department.

Tonight's been pretty slow. I mean you can only play so many games of Minesweeper before your eyes start to boggle and your boredom strings so far.

Oh--

Maybe I spoke too soon.

Com call.

Excuse me.
