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

"Ooookay," Helena said with a sigh, nodding. And made a mental note to check into that release.

Poison Ivy, meanwhile, was taking pictures of a young woman seated with the biology college, and waving happily to her.

"That's Myra. She's graduating summa cum laude in biotechnoloy," she confided to Raven. "She asked my opinions a few years ago on one of her projects, and I've been recommending her to various places."

Like S.T.A.R. Labs. Because that would work out well.

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

"I will keep an eye on her," Raven promised Helena before taking a seat beside Pamela.

"How wonderful for her," she said as Ivy pointed out Myra. "What does one do with biotechnology? I fear I do not know much about such things."

Except for nearly sleeping with cyborgs and all.

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

"'The Design of ivy nanogenes in order to support the food needs of Monarch Lepidoptera along the eastern continental U.S.,'" Ivy recited, then added, "She and a few of her colleagues have been working on ways to adjust ivy and other plant DNA in order to make them more nutritious for caterpillars. A higher survival rate for butterflies is expected." She beamed proudly at Myra, who gave them a shy wave. "Once things are... calmer, for me, I hope to make a few contributions to the project from the other side, once the plants are grown."

Barbara was already trying to think of way to control free-range wild ivy.

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

Raven smiled at Ivy. "Butterflies are such beautiful creatures," she said. "I can see why you would wish to help. I would be curious to see how the project progresses. She will be taking safeguards to protect the balance of nature?"

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

"Definitely," Pamela said, her voice grave, then lightening a little. "They'll be testing in the lab for a little while longer, then in a controlled field area. In order to screen out predators. Much as I love plants, I think I admire their ability to achieve symbiosis with others." She shook her head. "Listen to me! I haven't even asked which college your friend is graduating from. I don't suppose she's in the sciences department?"

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

Raven had to hesitate for a moment. She didn't want to spook Ivy by telling her that Dinah had been studying criminology. "She did study science," she said, nodding "And also history, and law, and other things. I am afraid I do not remember her exact courses. I did go to Gotham University for a year with Dinah, but I was taking all sorts of classes, whatever caught my attention."

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

"Ah. Well, it's stil quite the accomplishment... You aren't planning on finishing a degree for yourself?" Pamela wondered.

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

"No, I am not," Raven said, shaking her head. "I have a friend who has need of my skills, so I have gone to stay with her. But I do still come back and visit New Gotham from time to time, especially to see my friends."

[sorry for the extreme lag -- was feeling pretty crappy for the past few days]

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

"Then I'd be happy to see you the next time you're here, as well." Ivy looked pleased. "Be sure to e-mail me, so we can meet."

[no worries! I was pretty sick last night too.]

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

Raven smiled, sensing Ivy's pleasure and glad for it. "Of course," she said. "I will want to know how your projects are doing. And I will let you know any time I expect to be in New Gotham."
