back on the batgirl run

Koriand’r & Barbara Gordon friendship headcanons:

Because I’m sick of “ex-girlfriend & current girlfriend are enemies” petty jealousy bullshit.

  • They met for the first time when they were teenagers, back in Barbara’s early days as Batgirl and Kori’s first run with the Titans. Right off the bat, the two of them were very impressed by each other’s combat skills.
  • They exchanged phone numbers right after their first battle.
  • Wally West was convinced they were secretly dating for a solid six months. None of his friends bothered to tell him otherwise; mostly because they all thought the same thing.
  • Kori got considerably better at making human food after Babs started helping her.
  • They especially love baking together, and they do it so often together it ended up becoming their “thing.” Many fights have broken out between friends and teammates over their blueberry muffins.
  • After the Joker incident, Kori sent an enormous, highly fragrant bouquet of flowers to the hospital. It was so big the nurses could barely get it through the door.
  • Sometimes, when the traffic in Gotham is particularly bad, Kori just picks her up and flies her wherever she needs to go; wheelchair and all. This has caused many a Gothamite to readjust their medication.
  • Kori taught Babs conversational Tamaranean.
  • Babs taught Kori human anatomy and the meanings of popular slang.
  • They established a place to meet up for coffee once a month back in their teens. It’s a good time to unwind, drink caffeine-flavored whipped cream, and complain about what the other superheroes are ignoring them about this time.
  • When Kori was dating Dick, Barbara was the first person she’d call for advice should any problems with him come up.
  • And then when Barbara was dating him, the situations reversed.
  • (In fact, Kori may or may not have been the source of a lot of tips on what he liked during sex…)
  • Dick once joked that his girlfriend and ex-girlfriend loved each other more than they ever loved him. Barbara’s response to that was:
  • “Well, if I lost you, I’d lose the sex, which is admittedly good, but also what I have a vibrator for. But if I lost Kori, I’d lose my baking buddy. And who else could I have be my baking buddy? Tim? Not likely.”
  • He had to concede that she had a point.
  • (Tim was just offended.)
  • Admittedly, one thing Babs does envy about Kori is her thick, fluffy, gravity-defying hair. She often finds excuses to braid it, often under the guise of improving her manual motor skills (for typing purposes, of course). 
  • One time they fell asleep up in the Clock Tower at Babs’ computer, and she unconsciously wrapped herself in Kori’s hair like a blanket. She still hasn’t been able to live that down. 
  • Kori once dragged Barbara to a Taylor Swift concert.
  • Then Barbara dragged Kori to an indie rock festival.
  • Both of them ended up having the times of their lives.
  • One of their other favorite things to do together is watch Netflix documentaries. Babs usually finds in-depth investigations on technology or feminist issues. Kori just picks whatever looks most interesting to her on that particular day. Barbara swears she still has nightmares over the making-of-hot-dogs one.
  • They take karaoke duets very seriously.
  • Sometimes Kori lets Barbara hang by her hands while they’re flying to simulate the lost sensation of swinging over rooftops.
  • Once, she borrowed (read: stole) Barbara’s glasses to do impersonations of her. Barbara was less than amused; especially after she wheeled herself into a table corner…twice.
  • Nobody lets them come to sci-fi movies anymore after Jason made the mistake of taking them to The Force Awakens. They spent literally the entire time critiquing the way the movie portrayed space travel, and Jason was so busy telling them to shut up that he missed Han Solo’s death.
  • They have a tally list of how many times they’ve saved each other from villains.
  • Barbara’s done the saving 29 times. Kori’s done the saving 37 times.
  • Barbara swears that all the times she’s had help with the saving should count:
  • “No! It does not count! Stop with the cheating!” “How am I cheating? I can’t even walk. You can FLY.”
  • They’re not each other’s closest friends, or even each other’s oldest friends. But despite their vastly differing personalities, through all the strange superhero things that go on, they still manage to be each other’s most constant friends.
