Roof of Unalachtigo Dorm, Gotham University, New Gotham, Friday night
Another Friday, another date with Kyle, this time to see the latest animated superhero movie. Was it wrong that Dinah kind of thought the evil mastermind was adorable?

After last week's concentration of phone calls, texts, and sorting-out of fights, it had been... nice, to be quiet for a while, and catch up on schoolwork and New Gotham stuff.

There was going to be crimefighting tomorrow night, but for now, Dinah wanted a little more alone time than her room could provide, so she was up on the roof, playing with her phone and her iPod. And considering some rappelling, sure. Texting tonight wasn't the same thing.

[going to be a linkdrop, but open for phone calls & texts]

"Noooo, of course you can bring a date." Dinah grinned. "Can I ask who?"

Andy, or... someone else?

Raven blushed, not that Dinah could see it. "Jono," she murmured. "That is actually why I wished to call you. We are going to visit Gotham -- my Gotham -- this Saturday, and I thought perhaps you might know of something interesting for us to do there, something that might likely span both our worlds."

"Ahh!" Dinah got up to bounce a little, because it was imperative, and said, "If I do, you have to give me details! What's going on? Are you guys dating now? And I can think of three things off the top of my head that you guys should like!"

"We have been spending time together recently," Raven said, still blushing. "Last week Fandom was once again affecting those of us who lived here to make us become very amorous, and Jono and I...." Dot dot dotted. "But I spoke to him when the affect was gone, and we did not regret what happened."

"Yay!" This was as good as Karla's 'we said I love you' good news of last weekend. "Yes! Oh, that's awesome. I'm glad that week made things ..." dot dot dot? "...happen for you guys." She beamed. "Okay, let's see, um, Amusement Mile? It's a boardwalk with games and rides and really good carnival food. That's one thing. And Robinson Park usually has buskers and street players in the evenings, if you guys want to take a walk with music...."

"Both of those sound intriguing," Raven said. Minus the carnival food because that wouldn't appeal to Jono, of course. "I think the music would be especially enjoyable. And hopefully nothing like the Brotherhood of Evil will happen this time."

"Seriously! I am so glad we don't have them here. Or at least, maybe they're calling themselves something else. The League of Villains, I don't know. Oh! And Vauxhall Opera Shell and Concert Hall-- they don't just do opera, they have rock too. You could get online, check their schedule, see what's up." She grinned and then frowned, shaking her head. "But you won't head to Crime Alley or the docks, right? Maybe I should send you a map of things to avoid..."

Which was, basically: downtown Gotham. Ahem.

"...although if bad guys showed up, hopefully your Batman or Batgirl or Huntress would be there to kick their asses too."

"I would prefer Batgirl or the Huntress in that case," Raven said. Because Batman was a douche. "But I would prefer it not come to that. I do not intend to go to any of the more dangerous parts of town. It would not be romantic." Blush.

"Eeee!" Non-sonic Eeee! But still very happy. "Yeah, you guys could handle the usual Gotham mugger pretty easily anyway.... Oh! Oh oh they have horse-drawn carriages! Which is way more romantic than rickshaws, those are always so cramped." Dinah sighed happily. "I'm so glad for you. You know? You've been so hurt, and ... lonely. I'm thrilled good things are happening for you with him now."

"I am hopeful," Raven said as she felt a warm contented feeling go through her. "I know he does not feel as deeply for me as I do for him, and I know it is still very soon after losing Didi, but...I am happy."

"Yeah, but..." Dinah thought about the situation with her and Jaime, and then regretfully of Didi. Who was made of awesome, and win, but-- really, truly not coming back.

"It is soon. But you know all this going in. And so does Jono. What's too soon? Another year? Six months? Now?" She shook her head. "If it's real, and you're okay with him missing her-- I think it can work out." She hoped so, anyway. It was too soon to talk long-term, obviously.

"I would be worried if he did not miss her," Raven said truthfully. "I know how much he cared for her, and how her loss affected him. And I know he feels guilty about possibly finding some happiness with another." She had guilt issues of her own, but not as strong as his.

"Hearts are complicated." Which was the main thing Dinah had taken away from that conversation with 'Dite, yes. "I'm still not totally over Jaime, but, I'm dating Kyle. Which isn't the same, I'm not mourning Jaime's death, but... you guys have known each other longer, so. You were already friends." She was quiet. "And frankly, Fandom messes with you, you know? You can't go backwards."

"I have learned that, yes," Raven said. "I would never have imagined that love could hurt, but now I know it does. It is much more complex than I ever knew. But I have cared for Jono for a very long time -- I just did not allow myself to dwell on it before."

"So you guys are gonna take it slow? Ish?" Dinah asked. She smiled. "And see what happens?" She tilted her head. "Did you ever get a chance to talk to Andy? Or did he just ... do a fade?"
