Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

Raven took a seat in the Dinah Row, and once the ceremony actually started it would have her full attention. But until then, her attention was on her cell phone and the videos she was streaming. It was Eurovision, OK? This was important! There was music to enjoy. Or boggle at.


Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

"What are you watching?" Helena asked, curious, draping herself over Raven's shoulder. Then she started laughing.

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

"It is Eurovision, a song contest," Raven said, moving the phone so Helena could more easily see it. The first entry, from Ukraine, was currently performing.

"I am not certain why that man is in a giant hamster wheel, however."

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

Helena watched in fascination, not having seen any of this before. "To prove he can, maybe? I've heard worse songs, but this is ... yeah, this is weird."

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

"Perhaps it is symbolic of getting nowhere," Raven said. Or it was just a man in a giant hamster wheel. Music was funny sometimes.

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

"Symbolic of something, definitely." Helena leaned on one of the nearby pillars, and took a sip of a very large coffee. Despite bartending and crimefighting, she was staying awake for this. "I'm glad you made it. Dinah's been way too wound up about this."

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

"I would not miss it," Raven said, glancing toward the students and trying to spot Dinah. "This is very important to her, and I am glad to be here."

She idly wondered what it would have been like had she remained at Gotham University and graduated, if there hadn't been the war in Glacia to fight. She didn't regret taking her position in Karla's Court, but she couldn't help but be curious about what that future would have been like.

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

"Yeah. I didn't go to college, myself." Helena shot Barbara a look, where she was waving an NGU pennant, and had to grin. "Barbara's thrilled out of her mind. So I'm glad we can make a big deal out of it for her, too."

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

Someone very familiar was walking through the stadium, trying to find her seat. Even if she wasn't wearing vines and leaves, she was pretty unmistakable, if you knew what to look for.

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

Raven caught sight of the woman and was surprised to see her there. She thought she was still in Arkham, but then again, as far as she knew from her visits she'd been doing well, so perhaps she'd been released? She just hoped she wasn't up to anything mischievous.

She excused herself and got up to make her way through the crowd. "Pamela!" she said with a smile when she was close enough. "It is good to see you. I did not know you would be here."

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

Poison Ivy (aka Pamela Iseley) startled, and then gave Raven a genuine smile. "Raven. How wonderful to see you again." She offered Raven an air-kiss and an arm-squeeze, and said, "One of my protege's is getting her degree today, and I couldn't miss it." She lowered her voice and added, "I've only been out of Arkham for about two weeks."


Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

"I am so proud of you!" Raven said. "I am here for a friend's graduation myself. Would you like to sit with us?"

She gestured back to where she'd been sitting. You know, with the superheroes.

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

Poison Ivy looked pretty pleased, yes.

"Thank you. We're trying a new medication, so far it seems to keep things.... clearer," Pamela concluded. Her eyes tracked over to the group, and she looked considering. "Are you sure I wouldn't be intruding?"

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

Raven shook her head. "I am certain it will be all right. We have plenty of seats."

Hopefully Helena and Barbara wouldn't get upset if they realized who she was.

Re: The Graduation Ceremony (and any time after Dinah gets that diploma)

Upset, no. Boggling? Yes.

"I... don't think I know your friend, Raven," Barbara said, even though she knew perfectly well who it was.

"Pamela Iseley," Poison Ivy introduced herself, oblivious. "I met Raven on one of her previous visits here."

Helena was trying really hard not to facepalm.
