Futures Trading

"I can't believe it," Daria murmured numbly. She looked up at Quinn, who stared back looking just as shell-shocked as Daria felt. "I was sure that if we lost a parent before you got out of high school, it would be Dad."

Jane, seated beside Daria, gave a little snort. She patted Daria's hand supportively.

"Daria," Quinn said with exasperation (not holding the second syllable of Daria's name for nearly as long as she used to), "Mom's not dead."

Title: Angels Fall Without You There
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG
Spoilers: I don't even properly know. Cassandra is in Hong Kong. I allude to Batman and Robin v1 for sure, probably some Red Robin developments and Batman Incorporated.
Prompt: askbox prompt for Cassandra Cain Appreciation Month, "Roller Coaster"
Warnings: none really? The format may be a little confusing.
Word Count: 1813
Summary: Cassandra knows she doesn't like literal rollercoasters. What to do when life becomes a metaphorical one?
Word of the Day: splendiferous, adjective: Magnificent; fine.

Note: I got distracted by a different prompt also given for Cass Cain Month, which is why this one is late. And then I got bitten by multiple plot bunnies. This one was a hard one to get off the ground.

Note II: Medusa, opened in 1999, no longer exists as itself. It was retooled into Bizarro in 2009, but I'm pretty sure the track is the same.

Angels Fall Without You There

Gotham City isn't home anymore, and when Cassandra realizes that, she knows that she has to leave. (Bl├╝dhaven had been home once, but that's one place she can't return to... no one can.) Her brothers had nearly ruined everything in their fight to succeed their father, had made a mockery of what his symbol stood for.

So she'd shoved the costume into Steph's hands, left the name she'd made her own, and packed her bags. As her flight departed from the Gotham City International Airport, the only thing that lightened the weight on her heart was knowing that passing Batgirl on to Stephanie was something that her father had wanted.

Cassandra rode a rollercoaster once.
