    Best thing about being here? She had her best friends. Including Cass, who had given her the Batgirl suit before she retired. It hadn't taken long before she fell into some sort of similar routine that she'd followed at home and this time was a movie marathon and tag session that she had desperately missed. It had felt like forever since she last did something with Cass and this seemed like a perfect idea to spend quality time.

    Steph zipped around Pandora town via the rooftops, using whatever tool she needed to cross the larger gaps without taking a fall. A good game of tag would get rid of any pent up energy before they could settle down for movies(in which Steph managed to find a few good films here though this world really was sorely lacking in the good movie department).

    Finding Cass was easy enough though that was mainly because of where it was decided to meet up. So when she landed on the rooftop, her best friend was right there and Steph didn't even bother to stop herself as she ran over, attempting to throw her arms around her in a big hug.

    "Cass!" Steph beamed brightly.

    Cassandra looked down at the lights of Pandora City from atop a building. They flashed, and flickered, and changed, and she couldn’t help but reflect. Like Bludhaven and Hong Kong, Pandora Town had been an effort to adjust to. She was more comfortable in Gotham, of course, but it had been feeling like a place she could stand to live in for the foreseeable future, even if the lights were fairly dull. Ever since Tim and Steph had been brought here, though, the city seemed… brighter, somehow. Maybe it was because now she felt less alone. Like two lights of her life had come back to her.

    A smile broke across her face. Stephanie was here, not even bothering to hide her presence as she ran in for a hug. Turning around, Cassandra allowed it to happen, even hugging her best friend back and laughing. “Hey, Steph. You’ve gotta be stealthier than that. I heard you coming from a mile away,” her tone was playful, and happier than it had been in a long time. (As embarrassing as it was to admit, she’d nearly cried when she saw Stephanie for the first time).

    “I like what you did with the costume. It looks good on you,”
    she said for not the first time since Steph had been in Pandora. However, repetition didn’t make it any less true; she’d been delighted and proud to see that her friend, to whom she had given the costume under the guise of being sick of crime fighting after Bruce’s “death” (a lie he and she had made up to get her blonde friend to mature and come into her own as a crimefighter), had become more confident in herself and seemed to be comfortable in her role as Batgirl. It had taken some explaining as to why she was back in total crimefighting mode, but Cass hoped her friend bought the excuse she’d given.

    But now wasn’t the time for that, now was the time for fun. Like the kind they’d had when they were Batgirl and Spoiler and Batman was still the biggest hardass (Barbara had liked to use that word about him) in their lives.

    He still kind of was, of course, but that was beside the point. “And you’ve improved, too. Maybe now you’ll win more than five times a month.” Cassandra’s tone remained playful, and the smile a shade of impish rarely seen on her face. Of course she was exaggerating; Stephanie won more than that… but not much more.

    To be entirely fair, Steph hadn't wanted to be stealthy. She'd abandoned stealth the moment she had seen Cass in favor of getting there quickly so she could hug her tightly. Cass had given her the Batgirl suit which she wore before Barbara made her a new one that was more fitting for her role and type of style. Steph held her as tightly as she was able to, just letting it all sink in once more. Nothing mattered anymore, not when Cass was right here. "It would have ruined my tackle hug!"

    There was nothing that could stop her from smiling, from being happy. This was a day and time to just spend with Cass and enjoy what Pandora had to offer.

    "Why thank you. Though I can't take all the credit." Steph laughed softly, her blue eyes seemingly glowing with happiness. She hadn't known the real reasons behind why she was given the suit to begin with, thinking that most of the Batfam didn't think she'd be suited to being a hero. That had hurt more than anything. Like she wasn't good enough. At least that wasn't something on her mind. No, it was all about fun.

    With the words being spoken, Steph mock pouted. "Awe come on. I win at least six times a month!" Steph joked back, clearly not at all too upset by the words. "In saying that, I have improved. It's taken a long time coming but better late than never." It had taken time, training and hard work to get where she was and though she was still the same Steph everyone knew, she was also a little more mature when it came down to it.

    “Good point,” she said with a grin, taking solace in the familiar hug of her enthusiastic friend. “You do give good tackle hugs.” In fact, hugs were probably her fourth best skill, behind waffle-making, being a constant ray of sunshine, and being the best friend a girl could ask for. It was certainly nice to have her back, and Cassandra couldn’t help but let out another laugh as Stephanie squeezed her, as though she were a life raft in the middle of the ocean. Well, at least Batgirl gotten stronger over the past year or two!

    At first, she was a bit confused at the statement; having never been back to Gotham since her departure to Hong Kong, she wouldn’t have known how Stephanie obtained her new costume. Her initial assumption had been that Stephanie had simply created one all on her own, like she had the Spoiler costume -it would certainly explain all the purple. Stephanie’s admission, however, threw doubt into Cass’ thinking. If she didn’t do the costume herself, who had?

    Oh. Of course. It was Barbara. Who else would go out of their way to make an entirely new costume; Cassandra’s smile widened; she could only hope Oracle was as kind and supportive to Stephanie as she had to Cass.

    You know, minus the occasional hurt feelings.

    “I can see how much you’ve improved just by looking,” she replied. Indeed, the Stephanie Brown apparently doing her very best to squeeze the air out of her lungs –Stephanie Brown: The Batgirl—was noticeably more skilled than when Cassandra had seen her last, as Stephanie Brown: The Spoiler. “But don’t think that means you’ll win.” With lightning speed Cass broke the girl’s hold on her, before striking her in the stomach with an open palm (with no more force then a light slap, of course).

    “You’re it.”
    Turning on her heel, Cassandra darted to the edge closest to the adjacent building and launched herself over the gap connecting the two. She cleared it easily and kept running, only sparing the quickest look back to Steph.

    To say she missed her best friend was an understatement. She'd missed Cass so much, especially after everything that happened and last seeing her when she gave up the cowl. At least this place was good for one thing and that was bringing them back together without all the complications that they'd had in Gotham. What mattered most was they were together and that was all she could ask for.

    And her encouragement and words only made her beam. She'd had trials and tribulations like the rest of the Batfam and she'd tried over and over again to prove she was worthy and a right fit. It had been grueling, with long hours of training, research, keeping her identities secret. She wasn't just Batgirl but she'd been a student too.

    There were sudden movements, quick as Cass hit her lightly with an open palm and Steph arched an eye with a grin on her features. "We'll see about that!" Watching her take off, Steph followed without missing a beat, the gap between the rooftops mere child's play as she got enough speed to leap over without failing and crashing into the streets below. She could have easily used her grappling hook to get over the gap but that wouldn't show she'd gotten better.

    Ahead was a large vent with a small gap beneath that Steph was able to go under, using the momentum from the sprint to slide under and then roll to her feet, her hand outstretched to tap Cass upon her shoulder.
