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]

"The beginning was not slow at all," Raven said, feeling another blush creep on to her cheeks. "That was the influence of the island, but...I would not mind it happening again. It was very enjoyable." To say the least.

She frowned a little as she went on. "I had wanted very much to talk to Andy but he seems to have left the island. I have not heard anything from him in several weeks."

Dinah wondered if she should be all Voice of Reason here, and say things about being sure, but... that was really Jono's job, and if he thought he knew what he was doing, anything Dinah said might sound like an insult. And she really *did* hope these two could make it work.

"Better than Chuck?" she teased, certain that much was the case. "Awwww... And that is too bad, that Andy's gone. I hope he takes it okay if he comes back and all. But disappearing without saying good-bye-- that's a reason to move on, really."

"I already knew things were not working with Andy," Raven said with a sad sigh. "I do not wish to be greedy for attention but I so rarely saw him. And I also struggled with feelings for others. But I wish I had had the chance to speak to him and make certain we could still be friends."

She sighed again, this time more happily, and flopped down on her bed. "It was very nice," she said. "Yes, better than with Chuck. We were able to use our gifts together so that I could feel him kissing me, and he could feel me kissing him." Empathy ruled.

"Yeah. If you have to break up with someone, that's the way to go." Even though you might need a huge break before that happened.

"Ohhh, that sounds awesome," Dinah said with a dreamy sigh. "And yay! That's just-- really cool, that you guys can work that out. I-- kinda loved that, being with Jak. That he was okay with it." Being with Jaime had been waaay more complicated. She smiled. "You guys are so lucky to find someone who's okay with all the non-standard parts of you. So cool."

"I have never cared that Jono is different," Raven said. It was probably in part what drew her to him originally. "And he knows what is inside me but he is not afraid of me." They were both way more afraid of themselves than each other.

"A million skillion times better than Chuck." Even if it didn't work out forever. "I'm glad he's not scared of you... and hey." Dinah tilted her head back to look at the stars. "Maybe love will make all those things you're scared of back off. Maybe it'll make you stronger."

"He cares for me," Raven murmured. "It was not just an emotionless moment of pleasure for him, and that made all the different to me. And I do feel stronger when I think of him. In Kaeleer -- he helped me because I could feel him with me."

Eeee! And vicarious dance of joy for Raven, too. Dinah calmed down and said, "Cool. I mean it. Really really cool." She sighed. "How are you feeling now, by the way? It's been almost three weeks-- are you all recovered?"

"The past two days were difficult," Raven admitted, dodging the question. "Sookie was abducted, and several of us had to travel to Bon Temps to find her. I am not comfortable dealing with vampires, and there were werewolves as well, very unpleasant ones."

"Oh, holy crap," Dinah blurted, putting that together with Bobby's text notes. "And I know how much you hate those guys! Are you all okay? Is Sookie safe now? Wait, didn't this happen before? What the hell, Sookie's town?"

"A very powerful vampire desired Sookie for reasons we are still attempting to figure out," Raven said. She kept it vague because she didn't know how much Sookie wanted known about her blood. "He worked with werewolves who abducted her, but we were able to track them to Mississippi and rescue her, though she had been sorely injured. Karla and I were able to heal her, however, and we are all safely back in Fandom."

Dinah facepalmed, and didn't say anything because-- really, what could she say? Sookie had needed help. She'd shown up to help Karla three weeks earlier, she was a great friend to her and Raven. Of course they went to rescue her.

"I wish you guys could get a break from deathly derring-do that's longer than a few weeks," she settled for. Then blew out a slow breath. "How are you doing now about all this? And..." She bit her lip. "I didn't dream Karla was in trouble, so I'm hoping she wasn't ever *seriously* endangered..."

"Healing Sookie took a great deal out of her," Raven admitted. "But I did my best to make her rest and not overly tax herself. I am trying to keep a closer eye on her now."

That was a relief to hear. "I wish this hadn't happened, for Sookie's sake and the rest of you too. But I'm glad she could help, and glad you were supporting her." She sighed. "Werewolves and vampires. Ugly combination. Is it going to be a problem again, do you think?"

"The vampire who orchestrated her abduction will not be a problem, I do not think," Raven said, shuddering at the memory of the charred vampire. She couldn't help but wonder what Eric had planned for him now. "Though there may be a danger of another seeking to claim Sookie for the same reason, whatever that may be. We are going to attempt to discover what it is they want from her. If we know that, we will be better prepared to protect her."
