"She’s at Riker’s.” Cass corrects, slapping one of the cereal bars into Steph’s face as she slides onto the back of the bike. “We ran out of coco.” she explains the flavor mix-up unapologetically. “Did you miss dinner?” 

Steph’s bike rumbles forward, as they take off for the facility. “So. How’s spying?” Cass asks, leaning forward over Steph’s shoulder. 

Steph rolls her eyes, waving it off. “Same difference. They’re both grim dark as hell and smell like Killer Croc’s sneakers- OOH thank- wait. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh come on!” she whines, catching sight of the wrapper. She tears open the cereal bar and quickly shovels it down. “Remind me to squirt Bai with a water bottle, ‘kay? Yeah, I’ve been studying all night. Thanks anyway.” 

She makes sure Cass is securely on the bike before the two women take off down the road and onto the freeway. “Jury’s still out. It’s been a week and the guy hasn’t given me anything to report back to Bruce. I can’t tell if that exonerates him or if I’m really just that rusty.” Steph weaves through traffic smoothly, the speedometer flirting with 90. “So what’s your plan with Harley? Is something different about tonight?”

"She threw away the box this time." Cass tries to find an out for Bai, even if the missing coco cereal bars is a pain. "You’re welcome."

Cass keeps her eyes on the road ahead. The street names, memorized, sounding in her head as the GPS directs them the exact same way she had mapped while waiting on Steph to arrive. “It can’t be that bad.” Cass encourages, “You’re still patient.” Steph had lasted a week following this man, that had to show for something.

"No nothing different." she shrugs. Cass had been swiftly pushing herself back into patrols following her attack, but still moved gingerly along rooftops. She picked battles she knew she could handle with ease. Stood imposing rather than taking action at the ones that left a timid turn in her stomach.

This was a move she thought wouldn’t endanger her, but could still yield something of value. “I want to finish my talk. With her.”

[Txt] Bring your bike?

[Text]: Will do. Can you grab be a cocoa puff bar?

Steph half-hazardly packs her backpack and hurries through the campus library to the bathroom. An Arkham field trip with Cass was a welcome alternative to her research paper. And besides, this is important Cass, and she gets why. Shimmying awkwardly into her Batgirl suit in the cramped bathroom stall, she slings her backpack over her shoulder and pries the screen off the window to slip out. A small group gape at her as she walks away from the open window and all she can think to say as she bolts behind another building is, “Late for a night class!”

She presses a button on her belt and the GPS blips her bike to life a few miles away in the bunker all of the Bats shared for vehicles. Steph waits a few minutes before her bike comes riding up to her on autopilot. 

Before long, she’s pulling up to their townhouse and spots Cass blending into the shadows, looking none too excited. She pats the space on the seat behind her. “All aboard! Next stop Arkham!” she chirps. “Please tell me we had some cereal bars left. I’m dying over here.”

[Txt] We’ll see…

There’s no coco puff cereal bars in the pantry anymore. The entire box is missing, and Cass knows it’s probably thanks to Bai. But, luckily for Steph, the Fruity Pebbles cereal bars are still intact. Unopened even. Cass nabs a few for Steph and herself, munching on the neon colored cereal flakes as she waits for Steph outside the townhouse.

"She’s at Riker’s.” Cass corrects, slapping one of the cereal bars into Steph’s face as she slides onto the back of the bike. “We ran out of coco.” she explains the flavor mix-up unapologetically. “Did you miss dinner?” 

Steph’s bike rumbles forward, as they take off for the facility. “So. How’s spying?” Cass asks, leaning forward over Steph’s shoulder.

[Txt] I only want to try once.

[Text]: We’re gonna make it count then

[Text]: give me twenty minutes

[Txt] Sure

Cass waits on Steph at their townhouse. Slowly, she suits up for the visit to Riker’s, while she’s doubtful there will be any contact with Harley (or any other prisoners), she still feels better with some weight in her belt, and her cape trailing behind her.

She pulls up the prison’s location as she waits, looking at overhead images of the secured facility. It’s father away than Arkham is…

amarettoblue said: A photoset of Cass and hugs??

Well. This absolutely broke my heart.

So, in canon, there are exactly two people we have seen canonically hug Cass as in, y’know, an actual hug.

But that’s not the characters’ fault. That’s the shame of the creative department. So I sorta “stretched” what constitutes a hug and let Cass hug it out with her family.

Damian enjoyed his the most, I’m sure. One-armed hug tackle of love!!!
