This whole coming back to the States was a good idea when she left Africa, but now waiting to get to Gotham? It's making Stephanie Brown antsy, so she leaves the airport to go pull on her Spoiler for the first time in at least year and heads out to kick some bad guy heads together until she can make her way back to Gotham in the morning.

Madness?

*left unlocked since no specifics are mentioned*

Dear Diary,

Madness, huh? I guess that's Gotham to a T, isn't it? With Arkham Asylum and well, the vigilantes... I know, saying that putting on the costume is crazy means I'm calling myself crazy too. I must have been, really. What other teen thinks it's a good idea to put on a cape and cowl to follow her criminal father to get him put away? Not many, I'm sure.

That's behind me, so I guess I have more to look forward to. I've left that behind, but the thing is, I left a lot of people behind doing so. I miss my best friend, I miss my ex, I miss a family I almost was part of...

Well, I'm not going to think of Gotham too much. I have classes to get ready for. I start college this week, so wish me luck!

Cheer someone up

*locked to people who know her identity*

Dear Diary,

I've noticed a lot of my entries have been on the self-pity/sad side of things, but cheer up! I got a job! Well, okay, not yet, but I have an interview! It's a babysitting gig. Yeah, I know that doesn't sound like much, but it'd be more like being a nanny to a kid than a babysitter, so more money. Kids are adorable, and I think I could handle this.

Though, I read between the lines of this interview, and the girl's dad is totally a vigilante with the hours he keeps. No, I'm not jumping back into the business or jumping to conclusions. I totally used detective skills for this, only... I can't actually figure out who the guy is. I just didn't know that many heroes, and well, it's been a long time since I saw any of those file Batman made me memorize.

Well, anyway. That's my good news! Hopefully the interview goes well. I think being an ex-vigilante and the nurse training I had with Leslie puts a big plus in my column. Wish me luck!

You're fired! Talk about a time you were forced out of something.

*locked to those who knew she was Robin and know the Batfamily identities*

Oh wow, why do I keep picking topics that hurt? Because, this? It hurts a lot. This hasn't happened just once, no. I was fired as Robin when I stepped in to help Batman when I thought he was in trouble. How I was supposed to just listen in on a fight he seemed to be LOSING and do nothing, huh!? I...I guess I did break his rule, so I deserved to be fired, but still!

I loved being Robin. I think it's impossible to NOT love being Robin. I guess that's why it hurt so much when I was fired, and that's why I got so stupid and... Ugh, everything after that, I'm so sorry for. I never meant to...get anyone hurt or for Black Mask to find me... It's in the past now, but I still have nightmares about power drills and black skulls.

Okay, so I said I wasn't fired once, and that's true. I wasn't really fired, but I was forced out of being Spoiler a while ago... I don't know what hurt more: Batman firing me as Robin or being told by Tim he didn't want to see Spoiler around anymore. Either way, it hurt, a lot. I can't be Robin anymore, and that's okay with me, but Spoiler was mine, and it doesn't even feel like it's mine to wear anymore...

Cremation or burial? Talk about funeral arrangements.

*Locked to only the people that know the Batfamily's secret identity*

Dear Diary,

This is hitting a little too close to home. I mean, if you know Batman's identity, you know he died. I'm not part of the funeral arrangements. Actually, I don't even know what they're doing about that. I can't even start to think about how complicated all that must be. You can't exactly bury Bruce Wayne, or people will figure it out. Where would the body go? Somewhere in the Batcave?

...okay, no, but I swear that cave feels like a tomb or graveyard sometimes. The room of batsuits in glass cases, and that's not even taking into account of the Robin suit in the main part of the 'cave. Jason Todd, A Good Soldier. I wonder what they did for his funeral? I wasn't even a vigilante at that point. I was still pretty naïve then. I think I still had myself tricked that my dad could change... What a load.

Now that we're talking about my dad... He didn't get a funeral because we didn't have a body; we just were told he was dead. At that point, my mom and I just didn't want to go through all that. Oh god, that reminds me of what my mom must have gone through for my own funeral arrangements. I feel so bad about that now, but I had no choice, and it was the best thing for me at the time. I hope mom understands that...

Okay, I'm done being morbid. I need to talk to my mom. I'll write more later...

What are you wearing?

*locked away in her Diary, but she left it open by accident*

Dear Diary,

What am I wearing? Wouldn't you like to know~ Haha, yeah, not really all that special, just a pair of sweats and a tank top. I have been wearing my Spoiler costume lately, though. Since I moved away from Gotham and to New York, I don't have to feel guilty about patrolling. One my first patrol, I ran into a cute red head. I think he was very interested in what I was wearing. It was really nice to be appreciated like that.

Speaking of wearing, all that red definitely showed off his shoulders. Archer shoulders are a very, very nice thing. I think he may be having some problems right now, and god knows I have my own share of problems, but I think our flirtation actually made each other's nights. Well, at least I hope I made his night...

The End.

*locked away in her Diary*

Dear Diary,

...I've decided to move out of Gotham. It may seem a bit sudden, but it's been building for a while. I can't be Spoiler here, not anymore. We're thinking about moving to New York City. Maybe that would be better for everyone. It's not like anyone will miss me. Cass and I haven't really talked since I came back. There is no Tim and I. I heard Babs was back in Gotham, but I don't think she ever liked me much anyway...

So yeah, we're moving tomorrow. I guess that's the end of my time in Gotham. There's lots of packing to do, and even though I really have no reason to stay, no ties here, I can't help but think of the baby I gave up. Not that staying or leaving Gotham on my part would impact her life at all now, but... When I was Robin, I noticed that there was a feed that was watching my daughter. ...I wonder if Tim will keep that up when I leave? I hope so. So many bad things can happen in Gotham...

Don't get me wrong. I'll miss Gotham. I must sound crazy, but it's the truth. Every Gothamite loves Gotham, even if Gotham is usually a horrible place. You have to be a Gothamite to find the beauty in the city. I hope someday I'll be on good terms with Tim again, and I can come back to Gotham, but for now, New York will be my fresh start. A fresh start for Spoiler too, maybe...

"Are you an only child? Write about your siblings or lack thereof."


*Unlocked for anyone to read and respond*

Luckily, I'm an only child. Every kid at some point wants a sibling for one reason or another, and I was just like everyone else, but eventually, I figured out I wouldn't wish my childhood on anyone, let alone a little brother or sister.

Okay, you're probably wondering what could be so bad about my childhood that I wouldn't wish it on anyone, right? Well, I love my mom, but for the longest time she was junkie on pain meds. She got them legally too, so there was really no way to stop her. The whole reason she did that was because my dad is a jackass. Well, was, past tense. Don't read that wrong; he didn't stop being a jackass. He just died.

You're probably also wondering why I would call a dead person a jackass. Usually, I wouldn't speak ill of the dead, but my dad is the whole reason I- well, I won't get into that in this post, but let's say dad was on the wrong side of the law a good amount of the time.

Actually, I can't remember a time when he wasn't up to his neck in something illegal. I never understood it when I was younger, but I definitely get it now. He wasn't even good at being a criminal, you know? He probably didn't even need Batman and Robin to take him down; he would have taken himself down all on his own. He was just a Riddler reject going by the alias Cluemaster.

I live with my mom now, who's kicked the pill habit, but I sorta have another family. I'm not sure if I'm really part of them anymore, but I know they're like siblings to each other. ...I'll always wonder if I had stayed with them longer if I would have had siblings too...


*Locked to those who know the Batfamily's identities*

...actually, if Robins were really like siblings, I guess me and Tim would have been a bit incestuous. Oh man, I really don't want to think of it like that, but I really would have loved to gotten as close to Nightwing as Tim had been. He seems like he would be a cool older brother. Cass and Babs as sisters would have been fun. ...I wish I still talked to them. I really miss Cass, and even Babs yelling at me for being reckless.
