There are nights when the stars align and the moon shines bright and the dreams flow easily. Tonight is one such night and in Babs dreams, when they come to her, someone is waiting. A large black wolf lounging in a digital forest. A rather peaceful forest where the bit-trees sway in the ethereal breeze. The Old Wolf seems to be expecting her. Which… perhaps should not be surprising.

-

Babs really doesn't dream a lot… if she did most know what she would dream of and that's not something she's able to face often. Certainly not lately with what happened to Robin. So when she does lapse into dreaming for a change… she dreams of her lovely data streams that gives her a unique perspective on the world she watches over.

In her dreams, she walks through the streams, lovingly trailing her hand over each and every one of them… they're her solace… As she moves through the forest, she sees the Wolf… "Come to haunt or hunt my dreams, Fenris?" she asks with a small smile.

-

"Come to visit…" The Old Wolf smiles. "Interesting dreamscape you have here. Nice to see it when no nightmares are haunting it." He means that literally. Malevolant creatures of shadow that feed off pain and fear.

-

Babs looks at The Old Wolf "That generally means I'll be tired when I wake" there's another smile "not that I mind." she shrugs and looks around "What would you expect… my data is my protection, I feel safe with it… did you expect to see Clowns?"

-

"Usually it's someone's home. Maybe their present one, maybe one from their childhood." The great black wolf continues laying where he is. "Sometimes it never existed but in their dreams. This…" He glances around at the data streams and bit-trees. "Seems to be your home. At least your home is peaceful. Some aren't. Some are fairly terrifying, in fact."

-

Babs pads around one of the 'trees' in bare feet… the fact that she walks in her dreams would indicate how she visualises what she does as Oracle. Her hand touches the trunk gently as she watches the 1's and 0's change state.

"It's…. my fortress, I think. Not exactly my home." Babs shrugs slightly "I find peace here… it should be peaceful. This is where most of my existence really makes sense." Turning her green gaze to the black wolf she considers him quietly and says nothing.

-

Fenris gets to his feet, smiling over at Babs. "Perhaps you'd care to tell me about it?" Or perhaps not. It was an invitation, not a demand. The large wolf looks out of place, natural among so much digitized scenery but he moves through it with the same ease through with he traverses all forests.

-

The young woman shrugs as Fenris stands. "What's to tell? I'm sure you know my story…" The green eyed gaze doesn't waver "This construct… I built it to protect me and mine. Data is orderly, conforms to structures" another shrug "whether you understand them or not to begin with… but structures can be learned. This data, creates information… and that information I can use to protect people…." Babs sighs deeply "But it can also be used to hurt people, please don't give me that lecture."

Her eyes flick to The Old Wolfs "You rarely visit without purpose… I'm honored if this is just a social call" she smiles gently… "but generally, there's a reason… perhaps you would care to tell me about it?"

-

"Oh I always have a reason. Tonights is that dreams are easy to get into and I find yours pleasant. There may be other Nightmare's around so I'm staying in the dreamscape to make sure they know that the wolf protects what is his." This gets Babs a somewhat Lupine grin. Fierce, but not angry.

-

"You find 1's and 0's pleasant, Fenris?" Babs just laughs and then a small frown creases her brow "A wolf protects what is his… and you're here, in my dream… what type of message should be taken from that?" A light teasing tone accompanies the question.

-

The Wolf's smile widens a bit and he chuckles. "Take it how you will. I hunt in the Tri City area and consider it mine, along with the people I can bring myself to care about." The fact of the matter is that Fenris doesn't care about humanity at large. Individuals yes. Large impersonally groups, no. "I find your mind focused and meditative, if… somewhat tense. Well, your dreams at any rate, speak of you being pulled in several directions. One wonders at what happens during your days."

-

Babs shrugs at the Wolf "You say you know me, you've visited me and even taken me for tea. You already have an inkling of what happens during my days." The woman pauses by another tree and runs her hand down its trunk… fondness in her caress "My attentions are often divided… and sometimes that's stressful. But… it is what it is."

-

Fenris nods a bit. He's familiar with the problem. Unlike most mortals though he's had a couple millenia to get used to it. And a very long perspecive on things. "Things in Gotham are worsening. There is… a convergance occurring and I do not know of what yet." He says quietly as he stalks along side her, midnight black against the glowing blues and greens.

-

Oracle had received a rather cryptic message from Bobby Drake the other day about mega werewolves in Gotham converting others. On top of that, Oracle's intelligence tells her that Vorpal was laid up after encountering them.

-

The bare footed woman nods as she moves from tree to tree… "Yes, I'm seeing way to many unusual disturbances in the city. It's not a peaceful city by any means usually but just lately… it's feels like it's getting worse." Babs shrugs "I thought perhaps it was just my perspective being skewed."

-

"It is getting worse, and signs I've seen point to it getting much worse in the coming weeks. You may see me on occasion here, dealing with some of it." Some of it will be magical. Some of it will… rather not be. But it's what he does. Poaching on his hunting grounds is not allowed. "Enough of that, though. Come, climb up. The night is young and the dreams are fresh and since we're both here and there is no Nightmare, you may wish to see some things that few can claim ever to have seen."

-

Babs nods "I know, I received notification today… apparently you may have said something about Batman… they asked if you were were one of the bad guys." She shrugs "Try to check in if you are in town… I may be able to help you."

The redhead looks at the black wolf with a grin "Again? Why not… it's just a dream after all…" the young woman settles on the Wolfs back… "now about these things that few have seen?"

-

Fenris chuckles. "Yes. I said I do not care what he thinks of my activities. And I do not." It's not personal. Fenris doesn't care what most people think about his activities. Left unsaid: There's little most people in this world and most others could do to stop him from doing as he pleases, which is another reason the opionions of others on the matter carry so little weight. "I understand he considers this city his to protect. It's admirable. But it has little to do with me."

-

Babs laughs a little "As I said, try to check in you're in town… at the very least I know how to address certain people." Babs will let Fenris deal with Batman… "Now Wolf, show me these things few have seen"
