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.

Though I would like to contribute to paring down the giant list of lonely!dcu prompts, I have to go where the story leads me. And it's leading me this-a-way...

Title: Settling In
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress / [ profile] schizoauthoress
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Nothing that I can think of. Timeline is vague.
Warnings: Gender-bender. Strong language, but it's Jason. He brings that out in people.
Note: This is short, but hopefully it will start my thoughts toward more Curse!verse; it's been sitting on my hard drive for a while now. Polished and finished at the request of [ profile] shiny_glor_chan, for her birthday. Hopefully, there will be more 'birthday presents' to come, if a bit belatedly.
Word Count: 858
Summary: Jason on why he wants to be 'Jacinda'.

Settling In )


I might eventually flashback to the scene with Zatanna; for now, since I don't know too much about her outside of 'Countdown', I'm letting that alone.
schizoauthoress: (Batfamily-Robins 1-4)
Title: Handle With Care
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress / [ profile] schizoauthoress
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Nothing that I can think of. Timeline is vague.
Warnings: Gender-bender. Possible Tim-bashing (I don't think it is, but I admit he's my least favorite Robin). Insensitive jokes from a character that doesn't know better yet.
Word Count: 1082
Prompt: any, any, pretty like a girl
Summary: Maybe they were expecting him to make an ugly girl... truth is, he's not a girl at all.

This story is part of the Curse!verse and is a direct sequel. Click on the link, or the "fiction: dcu: curse!verse" tag to read the previous parts.

Handle With Care )

Go to Chapter Four

(Urk. I need to reformat my tags... probably c: instead of chara:... when I'm not so sleepy.)

I hope that this chapter wasn't too confusing. Like I said, in the narration, Jason is referred to as "she" and "her" (although sharp readers will note that I tried to avoid pronoun use in places); the characters (with notable exception) are still thinking of Jason as "he" and "him".

After the crap day I've had, I need to unwind by writing. It's, well, like the quote says, a lot like therapy...

Title: A Lot Like Therapy, But Less Expensive
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: R-ish
Spoilers: Kinda-sorta "Batman R.I.P.", if that weren't a huge spoiler all by itself as a title for an arc. It's set after that, anyway.
Warnings: violence; character death
Prompt: DCU, Jason Todd/Barbara Gordon, Joker's Death
Word Count: 297
Summary: Jason goes looking for approval, and finds it.

a sequel to To Each His Own Way of Grieving
