Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)


Dinah looked at the holo disc, that she had thrown in the middle of the group. It was how the hologram got there. She muttered, "Show off." under breath, as Babs spoke. Then she looked at the gathering of woman.

"Thank you Oracle. As you all know, I lead the Birds of Prey, along with Oracle, in Gotham. Batgirl is a part of it too, as well as Huntress... whenever she is around. That being said, like Oracle said, it is not full time."

She looked at Vixen. "Vixen here, is part of the Justice League, and is a valued member. She has helped fight back the likes of the League of Assassins," She looked at Black Bat with a knowing stare. "Falcone, and even Intergang. She has seen Darkseid even. An accomplish that not many heroes live to talk about."

Then she looked at Batgirl. Stephanie Brown. "Batgirl here, the blonde one, has been helping me with Birds of Prey, off an on for some time now. I trust her with my life, out there. But that takes time and practice to get that good. That is what this is about though. Getting to know one another and putting aside petty squabbles. As a team, we will have to trust the woman standing next to you, to have your back."

She looked at Black Bat. "Now Black Bat is bar none, one of the best martial artists I have ever had the pleasure of getting my ass handed to me, on a silver platter. Now, I am not saying I could not beat her." She smirked, "But so far, it has not happened. She is an assassin though, and I know some of you did not know that. Now, if Batman trusts her to be here, then I will to." She walked up to Cass, and held out her hand to her. "See? We have to get over issues, to be a team." After shaking her hand, she looked to Karate Princess.

"Karate Princess. The wildcard in the group. The one that is still like a fine katana, still being forged. Not honed in battle yet, and without the blood mixed in the steel. She is a formidable fighter, and the future calls her a hero. That future is not here yet, and here, she needs to learn a lot. I am hoping that we can help her get there."

She smiled, "There is one other, who is not here yet, but will join from time to time. She is-" There was a loud sonic boom, and Power Girl appeared. She landed, gently and Dinah shook her head.

"Not her, but since she is here, I don't think I need to introduce Power Girl." She waved to the young Kryptonian woman, that landed in the circle.

Kara waved to everyone, and Dinah continued. "Power Girl was the original member of the Birds of Prey. It was just her and Oracle. She is now on the Justice Society chairperson of the board, and Commander of the Justice Tribunal. She is not here to join this team, but to talk to you about the West Coast. Power Girl, they are all yours."

Kara nodded and smiled at everyone. She then started, "I will never understand why Oracle always picks a roof in the middle of a city, to have these meets, but that is how she is. Always mysterious, and always the voice behind the hero. She will guide you all on missions, the way she always does. Keeping out of the fight, and letting you-" Dinah glared at Kara, and Kara changed her tone.

"But I digress. What I mean, is that her intel is vital to the mission. Listen to her and heed her call. This group looks strong, but most of the time you will not have everyone on a mission. In fact most likely, you all will be alone at one point or another. Except for you, Princess. You will always have someone with you, I am sure. No offense to you, but Batgirl knows what I am talking about. You have a lot to learn, and it is not a bad thing."

She paused, and looked them all over again. She noted that Vixen was probably cringing as she stood there. After all it was not to long ago, that Vixen wanted to arrest Power Girl. "As you all know, the Seattle Syndicate is a real threat on the West Coast. Not just in Seattle, in fact, they have been seen working in Coast City, and San Diego. It is not a stretch to say they are in San Francisco too. They have metas, and they have magic, and also soldiers. The JT broke their back in Seattle, but they are not done. I know that you will meet them out there, so please be ready."

Dinah took over, "Thank you Power Girl. As was told to you all, this is not a permanent job. You do not have to move, but it might help. Since most jobs will be on the West Coast. But you will only be called, when needed. Some will be called more than others, so learn to adjust. Keep the comms open. If there is one thing that will get you killed, is not having it on. Oracle knows things. But she also cares about you. She would not ask each and everyone of you to this roof top, if she didn't. Now, I know you all have questions. so let me have it."

Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)


Steph looked over the group and then to Cassandra. s she stood there, looking at her. She replied to Cassandra. "Hi. A little aggravated toward Oracle, for something about this. Won't lie to you.. It's you I'm aggravated about. You've never wanted to be apart of anything. Always opting to grab stuff that belongs to the Batfamily and go on murderous rampages, like that is a way to do things as a Hero. But, it's not my place to have an issue." Sighing out at that she looked toward Dinah and crossed her arms as she listened.

After a moment she looked up to see Powergirl and rubbed her sinuses as she looked down. "We meet on roofs because they are high up and away from public eye, plus because here, Oracle can assure the meeting place is under the cover of the Watchtower monitor systems. A system that requires the lack of Stunts like being Kara and sonic booming to them. Supergirl would have took a cab or something. You, you shatter the sound barrier and risk blowing our cover." After that she looked over toward Powergirl and replies. "I understand about this whole BoP west Coast. but what's that got to do with me and you, Dinah? I mean don't me, you, Huntress, and C.W. have this part of things to worry over? Whats with the others? I'm not really getting why we have to do things on two fronts now."

After a moment she looked back to Powergirl and replies. "As someone who knows a little bit about taking down criminal organizations.. If it's still on the move. you didn't break it. Yeah you sacrificed a member of your team to deal a heavily wounding blow, but clearly there is an escape plan and the Syndicate is taking it." After she said this she looked around and replied. "So, is there some Ace in your hands you're not showing us? What, is Hawkgirl running late? Zatanna? Diana sending one of her girls our way? Please tell me you didn't call in a Favor from Supergirl. She's got enough going on with JT not able to show full presence in Metropolis. Besides, even her little buddy, Cometgirl, is a scarier loose canon than Cass, here."

Curiously Steph looked about the others and waited to hear the reply from Dinah, or maybe even Oracle But as she stood she made sure to keep an eye out for Cassandra, without being obvious to everyone else. In truth, she felt the largest need to watch Cassandra closely, as she knew what the girl was capable of and had worked with her on several cases. As it ran with vigilante heroines, There was plenty of a reason for Steph to be leery of Cassandra.

Karate Pricness looked at "Batgirl" with a bit of an annoyance. She was new, but she didn't like this girl just showing up and basically putting down everyone.

"Well i'm not sure what Batgirl's problem is, but I think it is a good idea. I have worked with both Vixen and Batgirl, " Pointing to Cassandra Cain, " before, and we worked well together." She said to Dinah.

"I am not sure of anything else, but I will definitely be there whenever called, as I have been for Oracle already. " she said.

Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)


The Black Bat looked to Batgirl. Funny how they were friends at one point, buddies even, but now she talks trash about her. Not unexpected though she supposes..

“Actually Karate Princess. I am no longer Bat Girl. I am not a girl, I am a woman. I gave that title to a child, where it belongs.” She said to Batgirl eyeing her the entire time.

“And I cannot join this team. I work for Batman, and Batman only.”

Oracle chimed in on her comm and Dinah's comm. “Actually, Batman wants you here, so guess who's on the team!”

She frowned but nodded. “It seems I have some time... I will indeed join. And I will not kill here, as I promised Batman I'd not kill while working for him.” For anyone who knows Cassandra Cain they know for HER that is a LOT of words, as she normally only speaks in 2, 3 or 5 word sentences unless she's aggrivated, but they'd also know her word is iron clad so if she said she was in, she was in.

“As it is Oracle.... you have the Black Bat's sword.”

Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)


Vixen stared at Powergirl as she arrived. The two had actually been friends long ago, back when they all basically were in the League. Vixen, Hawkgirl, Zatanna, Powergirl, and Black Canary. The Sirens of the league.... My how things had changed in the intervening years.

Once the others finished, she let out a sigh and nodded to Black Canary. “I was in the Birds of Prey once before, so its like putting on a worn pair of shoes again for me.” She said to the woman then looked at Batgirl.

“As for two fronts its simple. The world has been filling up with more meta human villains and wannabe criminal masterminds in the last few years, the League is stretched, which I can tell you, as I am a senior member. All other teams are also stretched thin, the police are as well and frankly Oracle, who sees the big, overarching picture can see just what the battlefield looks like, and I can tell you right now that if a Powergirl, or Supergirl, or Superman goes down, we're screwed. “ she said.


“So yes, you get more heroes working together, learning eachother's abilities so if we NEED to work together we can, and lets be honest, Oracle doesn't play as nicely as Mr. Terrific and the League, there are some things which simply are not cut out for the League OR the Justice Tribunal... And as for the team being underpowered, I believe that's your worry? I've fought with Karate Princess. She can destroy an armored tank with one strike. I've fought with Canary, we all know what she can do, and as for myself I am no slouch, so we'll be fine powerwise.” She said.

Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)


Power Girl shook her head at the comment about "girls" and Batgirl. She wanted to say something, since she was more a woman than Black Bat, but refrained from starting a fight over breast size. She then listened to Vixen, and nodded.

"She is right about that. While we can deal with a lot of things, from Metro and Gotham, we are short on dealings on West Coast. It is not always about whether you can handle it or not, but also about visibility."

She looked at everyone, and Dinah listened too. "Look, the simple fact is people want heroes. They look to the skies, and pray for one, all the time. I know that Birds of Prey are not like Justice Society. You will not be sticking around for autographs, and if you do... I want to see Black Bat sign one." She giggled, "But that does not mean that you being active there, will not make good PR. They will hear the rumors that there are some women in the city that care. That is all it takes. It works for Batman, and most people have never seen him."

Dinah smiled, "Like she said. If you are more active on West Coast, people will know that we exist there. That will help the public feel safer, and make criminals second guess actions."

She then looked at Batgirl. "Like me, you are only being asked to help out, when you can, Batgirl. Your primary place is with me, in Gotham. Unless you were looking to work on your tan in Cali?" She laughed. "I am sure that Supergirl could fly you there, as you two seem to be besties most of the time."

Power Girl smiled at that, "The stories she told me about you. Vampires in a movie? I need to know more about that one." Kara laughed.

Dinah then looked at Karate Princess. "And you are valued too. I did not mean to belittle you. I am sure you are able to take care of yourself, but this about team work, not solo play. Get better with that, and you can fly solo... well, as solo as you can be with Oracle in your ear."

Power Girl added, "And woman or girl," she looked at Black Bat, "You all are needed here. so I hope that you help her out. I will assist, if I am needed, but I have a lot going on with Syndicate in Seattle." She really did not want to work with Babs, but did not say that. Dinah knew about their falling out, but never pushed that subject. The others could probably tell by how Power Girl acted, that she had issue.

Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)


listening to the group she sighed softly and shook her head as she looked down to gather her thoughts. Once everyone was through speaking, Steph looked over toward Cassandra. Hearing her comment she replied. "First off, Batwoman doesn't play well with others, you know that as well as I do. So I'll be happy to stay under the Batgirl mantle. Adding to that, While we're friends, we've worked together, and we've done a lot. I mean a /lot/ of things side by side. It doesn't mean I'm not going to have reservations about how you operate. No I don't like the idea of killing. I don't like the idea of outright dismemberment. I don't like the thought that you tend to use your skills to play judge and jury. That said, I'm not questioning your skill. Nor am I questioning your ability to stop crime. If Batman trusts you enough to make Oracle put you in here. Then I'm not going to stand in the way of that."

After she said that she looked toward KArate Princess and crossed her arms over her chest as she stared at her and replied. "You, Oracle and BC say you are one heck of a fighter. and I'm glad to see that there's more of us out there who have skill in a brawl. However, the Birds aren't a bunch of supers. We're not just a group of solo artists. So, If you can't take criticism and be able to adjust for the better of the team. Then you're only going to get a lot of people hurt. Now, You have potential, clearly you do if you're here. But, that potential needs to be honed into a team mindset. Working together to take down major threats with strength, speed, and guile. As Vixen, Powergirl, Black Canary, and Oracle will attest, you'll have to be able to blend in sometimes. Even to the point where you may have to look like a villain. That's part of the job. However, you'll know and so will all of us who are part of the team and connected to the team, that you're not."

After she finished there she looked to Vixen and smiled. "I know you're probably thinking this is me being a complete !@#$. However, truth is. in this suit I have to be tough, I have to be hard of heart. I have to work like a shadow and think of the tough choice. So I'm giving these two a hard time right away to make sure they aren't flying off the handle when they get tested. I don't hate any of you. I want you to all succeed, and I'll make damned sure that I'm doing a good job of it, why? because I've lost family.. I've seen people I've cared about get severely injured and even die. So I don't want to see that happen to any of you. If you still think I hate you all now, then like I was told.. You don't have to be here. and you can be cut from the mission."

After she said that she finished off by looking at Powergirl. "I wouldn't trouble Supergirl with making her fly me anywhere. but, I wouldn't turn down time to be in her company. AS for you, yeah. I won't even start to pretend that I'm too intimidated to be honest with you and give you a few words as well. I don't fault you, or hate you.. I just know how much you mean to people and how much it means to keep your head in the game, for you." At that she stopped and looked around to the group of girls. "Now, have I pissed you all off enough? Or am I getting through that it's not I'm mad that you're all getting an offer. But that I don't want to see your faces in obituaries?" With that said she waited calmly to see if she'd get land blasted or they'd be able to pull together.

Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)


(( Thanks for the comment, Grim emoticon ))

Dinah and Power Girl watched, as the team was getting to know each other. Kara whispered to Dinah. "I think they got it. Or at least I hope so."

Dinah nodded, "All we can do is lead them to each other, Kara. The rest is up to them." They both stepped back and watched what the others would say, but did not interfere. This was how teams formed. Different people, from different places, and values, come together for a common goal. Would it work, or would the internal strife cause them to burn out? Only time would tell, and Kara and Dinah would watch, like they always did.


(( I will be gone till Sunday, so please continue without me. Sorry, but its vacation, so no laptop. ))
