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. (Blüdhaven 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.

Rating: G
Spoilers: none
Prompt: "Give me a couple and I'll write a drabble about them as parents." An anonymous person on Tumblr prompted me with Cassandra/Jason Todd
Warnings: none
Word Count: 265
Summary: Jason and Cass's baby is here, and Jason has doubts.
Word of the Day: bosh, noun: Absurd or foolish talk; nonsense.
Note: Probably not part of the Heart!verse, that AU is pretty defunct, but it could be read as such.

Hesitant

"Come here." Cass said impatiently. But Jason still hung back, eyes fixed on the tiny bundle in Cass’s arms.

"But I…"

Cass sighed as Jason trailed off and gave her a helpless, overwhelmed look. “Nine months was not long enough to get used to this idea?”

"I don’t think nine years would be enough.”

"If it was going to take nine years," Cass replied dryly, "I would have made you carry him."

That startled a laugh out of Jason. He didn’t doubt it. Damian would probably help her, in that case. He took a few steps toward the hospital bed, feeling very awkward in the protective gown and gloves that the nurses had stuck him in.

He stared down at the tiny baby — pale skin new and especially pink, chubby little cheeks making his face almost comically round, and a dark tuft of hair atop his little head. The baby looked so delicate and small, even though Jason knew that he was of a healthy weight and size according to the doctor.

"I don’t… remember much… about my dad. I don’t know how to…"

"You read the books." Cass interrupted. "You read the books to me. We know enough to start.”

Jason reached out, laid a hand over Cass’s where it rested against their baby’s side. His little eyes fluttered open for a moment, but drifted closed again as the baby made a contented little sound.

"No matter what," Jason said solemnly, "we’re not naming him Richard."

"I was thinking ‘Bruce’." Cass replied, eyes sparkling with mischief.

"You wouldn’t.”

"He’d cry. So much."

"Hmmm…."

Rating: PG-13
Prompt: from unit82717 on Tumblr - Cassandra Cain, young!Jason Todd, 'sister'

Summary: Unexpected outcomes to a patrol leads to some familiar bonding, and maybe mended bridges.
Word of the Day: climacteric, noun: A critical period.

Safety In a Familiar Face

For a town that was "owned" by Batman and his family of crime-fighting vigilantes, Gotham City sure did seem to attract a lot of metahuman and magic-using villains. That was a thought that popped into Batgirl's mind as she and Black Bat chased a self-styled 'master of the mystical arts', as he drove away from his so-far-successful heist of the small Jacobi Museum.

"At this point," Batgirl commented dryly, as the two ladies leaped a gap between buildings to keep up with the speeding Honda Accord weaving through the light traffic of mid-evening -- and one would think a 'mystical master' would drive a better car, or even some sort of magical transport, "don't you think people would learn not to bring expensive or powerful artifacts to Gotham?"

"Why wouldn't they?" Black Bat replied with a grin, "Best security guards in the world!"

Batgirl gave a short laugh and conceded, "Good point."

(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".

More Curse!verse under the cut... )
*****

Whoa, what the hell, suddenly I'm treating the Curse!verse seriously.

This was actually my plan all along. Yeah, Dick making an ass of himself over Jason's changed gender (and Jason's eventual retaliations) is supposed to be funny, but I don't want to just be goofy or have the change not be a big deal. I'm not sure yet if Jason is cisgender (and therefore switched into the wrong kind of body) or transgender (and therefore changed into the right body)... Jason's not sure yet, and I guess I'd like to play with that.

The pronouns are tough to decide on. I know I did a switch at the end of part one, but that was part of the reveal that Jason's physical sex had changed. So far as I know at this point, Jason's gender is still male/he still identifies as a male and thus, he. For third person limited point-of-view pieces like this, and the thoughts of the characters, I think I'll stick to using he/his/him for Jason. But for third person omniscient, I will match Jason's pronouns to his physical sex and use she/hers/her. I consider it to be like the difference between calling Bruce Wayne 'Batman' or 'Bruce' depending on his appearance (or whether he's in the field).

I don't know. If y'all have any thoughts on this, feel free to share.
