Let’s see if I can remember all the Batgirls.

  • Bette Kane – Pre-Crisis “Bat-Girl” and niece of Kathy Kane a.k.a. Batwoman. Post-Crisis she is best known for her stint as Flamebird.
  • Barbara Gordon – Daughter of Gotham Police Commissioner James Gordon. Shot by the Joker, she became paralyzed and took of the mantle of “Oracle” becoming the leader of her own all-women team the Birds of Prey and the information expert for nearly every superhero in the DC Universe.
  • Helena Bertinelli – Had a brief stint as “Batgirl” temporarily filling in as the bat-themed hero of Gotham while Batman was MIA. She wore a full face mask and costume that would be passed down to Cassandra Cain. She eventually returned to her better known role as Huntress.
  • Cassandra Cain – Daughter of assassins David Cain and Lady Shiva, Cassandra left her father as a child after she killed a man. She initially did not speak often, communicating almost  entirely via body language due to the way she was raised. Cassandra became the new Batgirl with Batman and Oracle’s blessing, and later took on the mantle of the Black Bat.
  • Stephanie Brown – Daughter of a low-ranking villain, Cluemaster, she took on the mantle of “Spoiler” to fight crime in the less affluent areas of Gotham ignored by the big bat and her own father’s plans. She became pregnant as a teenager, giving the child up for adoption, and when Tim Drake (Robin) gave up the mantle she temporarily became Robin before Cassandra Cain passed the Batgirl mantle on to her.
  • Charlotte Gage-Radcliffe – Having a very brief stint as Batgirl, Charlie is an orphan with teleportation powers who temporarily fought crime in Gotham as Batgirl (a couple of weeks during the year of Stephanie’s faked death) before being taken under the tutelage of Oracle and the Birds of Prey as Misfit.
  • Nell Little – When Stephanie returned to the Batgirl mantle after a year of faked death, Nell was a young Gothamite and Batgirl fan she ran into repeatedly. At the end of Stephanie’s pre-nu52 title run a glimpse of the future showed Nell as the Batgirl to Stephanie’s Nightwing.
  • Tiffany Fox – Daughter of Wayne Enterprises CEO/President Lucius Fox, Tiffany appears as the newest and youngest Batgirl in the nu52 Future’s End story arc.
  • Nissa – The Batgirl of Neo-Gotham in the future-set Batman Beyond universe.
Bughead Prompt 1

Anonymous said: Hey! Could you do a Bughead fic where Betty gets hurt somehow and Jughead comforts her and fixes her up?? Thanks!

“Throw her up higher!” Cheryl screamed towards the cheerleaders as she watched from a few feet away. “She needs to go higher!”

“We can only throw a human so high, Cheryl!” Veronica hissed, as she and Ginger Lopez tossed Betty into the air.

“Maybe if she was a bit lighter you’d be able to toss her higher, hmm?” Cheryl questioned, with a triumphant smirk forming on her lips. “Maybe if you cut back on the milkshakes you’d be able to go higher, Betty! I didn’t know Jughead was into big girls.”

Veronica growled, as Betty just looked down at her shoes. “Excuse you?”

Just a thought... (possible Fallout 4 companion storyline spoilers)

Porter Gage has been around. He grew up as a settler, moved on to being a caravan guard and a scavver before becoming a raider. He must be in his early forties.

What if…what if he got a girl pregnant at 17? Gage doesn’t like getting wet. He has a wry sense of humour. He likes his loot. Keeps things at a distance (like not being the Overboss himself). He’s not a big man. Cleverer than he lets on even though he can’t read. Does this sound familiar?

Maybe the girl couldn’t cope with the baby and found some settlement willing to take it in. Just maybe her last name was…

MacCready. He doesn’t like getting wet, has a wry sense of humour, tends to keep things (and people) at a distance and likes his caps. He never knew his parents. He’s on the small side, for a man. Despite appearances, he’s a bright spark, well read too.

What do you think?
