Charlie has been on an absolute tear this evening, it is about 2am and she has cut a path through Gotham this evening from the nicer residential neighborhoods to the slums. So far Misfit has punched the snot out of three different burglars taking advantage of people being out of town for the holidays. Two Muggers. A partridge in a pear tree. One home invasion that was taking advantage of people being home for the holidays. Toss in one car theft. A good question is how she managed to find the burglaries and home invasion, it didn't trip the alarms but she managed to bounce to the right spot to lay down some serious DARK CHRISTMAS VENGENCE.

Right now she is peering down at two guys working on breaking into a toystore that was open late and likely made a ton of money on last minute sales.

***

Oracle has been to the Bats Christmas Eve gathering, arriving early to help Tim decorate the tree, and returned to the Clocktower close to midnight. She has, of course, been keeping an eye on Misfit and watching her actions throughout the night. Sighing, she looks at the time and where Misfit is now and taps her comms unit "Are you planning on being out all night, Misfit?" Her voice will be digitally altered, but the redhead imagines the young woman will here the inflection anyway.

Charlie nearly falls off her perch, she of course told Oracle she was going out and got permission to Patrol but it has been dead quiet, only herself keeping her thoughts from her head by punching some vengence into bad guys. She settles and whispers. "Eventually yes." she pauses a beat "I'll get enough sleep to not be super wierd at lunch tomorrow." she is still planning to go with you, Rowan, and Tim wasn't it. She eyes the burglars and bounces >pinkurple> into the toy store, not setting off any alarms. She pads across the room and dives into a large stack of plush teddy bears, laying in wait.

***

Oracle smirks a little "Sorry Misfit, I've been watching you all night. I do that for all of you by the way. Nightwing, Batgirl and Red Robin all did patrols tonight too." Sitting forward, she removes her glasses, rubs her eyes and put the glasses back on. "I don't know about you for lunch tomorrow, I might be weird though." Tilting her head she watches the young woman make like a stuffed toy and laughs to herself. A uniquely Misfit move.

***

Misfit watches the handle jiggle and the crooks work at the door. She squints a little impatient and then blinks "No christmas lunch?" she pauses "You're afraid you might be wierd?" she obviously figures Oracle is afraid that she might be wierd, a much larger risk in Charlie's mind. Of course she is worried that Oracle is just having misgivings about her in general.

Misfit grips a teddybear as the door opens and then once the two step inside she bounces >pinkurple> smoke leaks out of the pile of large bears and she is behind the two robbers "DARK CHRISTMAS VENGEANCE!" and brains both of them solidly with the teddy bear, then bounces over onto the counter they land near "Welcome to my Island of Misfit Toys!" holding a Razer scooter which she uses to club one of the robbers <THUD>

***

"I'm worried that I'll be weird, Misfit, I'm a bit tired. I'm really looking forward to having you with us tomorr… um later today." Misfits toytime activities makes Oracle laugh out loud. "Island of Misfit Toys?" she asks as she hacks into the Gotham PD systems and despatches the police. "Gotham PD on their way. How about you gift wrap these two?"

***

Charlie sounds relieved "I'll be cool promise." nah she will likely be wierd as usual. She bounces >pinkurple> to the ground behind them and kicks the crowbar out of the none brained guys hand. Then she snatches up a animitronic reindeer and whalloops the guy several times until he joins his friend in unconsciousness. "Island of Misfit Toys. It's from that cartoon that always plays this time of year.. I use…" she trails off expression going dark and she bounces >pinkurple> to the gift wrap table and snags several rolls and a roll of the ribbon material, bouncing back >pinkurple> she starts to wrap them up and ribbon them too, so they wont be getting free anytime soon. Surprisingly strong girl is surprisingly strong as she manuavers the crooks.

***

Oracle admires the gift wrapping job the young woman does "Oh yeah, that's right. I'd just forgotten…. and I just want you to be yourself at lunch, ok?" The woman caught the unfinished sentence but avoidance techniques work well for the Bats.

***

Misfit bounces back to the wrapping area to write out a gift card and grab some bows, she bounces back >pinkurple> and slaps some bows on their foreheads and tapes the gift tag to their fronts. /To: GCPD From: MISFIT XOXO/

She eyes them critically then bounces >pinkurple> to the roof she was on earlier. "I'll wear street clothes and be Charlie, I still remember how to be her." she smiles lopsided.

***

"Training seems to be paying off" Oracle remarks as Misfit bounces back to the roof "You did well in there." Gothams Information Goddess smiles again "Street clothes and Charlie will be wonderful" and expected. "What next then, Misfit?"

***

If Charlie can really get the hang of fighting while bouncing she could probably fight a large number of people at once, since it doesnt seem to tax her or take a warm up to use. She grins broadly at the compliment though "Thanks. Lady B has been teaching me a lot of stuff about hand to hand and she keeps threatening an obstacle course.. but I think that sounds awesome!" she pauses a beat "I dunno.. could turn in. When is lunch again and where do I need to be?"

***

"Lady B. has been teaching you, but you're taking the lessons on." Oracle can't see the young womans face but the tone indicates she's smiling. "Turning in sounds like a plan. Can you be here about 9.30? Rowans picking me up and driving me over, we can all go together."

***

Hey good segway "So Rowan knows me as Misfit.. and Charlie now..and probably won't be surprised. But he doesn't know you are Oracle, though he knows I work with Oracle…. what should I call you tomorrow since last night was awkward..and what the heck is up with all that?"

***

"Call me, Babs. Dad doesn't know either." Oracle replies "Yeah, he knows lots of people Oracle works with. He also knows that Babs does super secret type stuff." The redhead sighs "He won't ask and right now, I won't say anything. It's" there's a pause "complicated and I'm really trusting you here. Not many people know Oracle as a person at all, to them Oracle is just a voice over a communicator or some other form of communication."

***

Misfit tries it out, muttering babs veru softly, and will likely work on it tonight to not ruin things. "I can do this." she pauses "So .. is it just like me and Nightwing, Red Robin, and Batgirl?" pauses a beat "Does batwing know?"

***

"Lady B., Batman, Batwing and a couple of others who guessed it, but you've got the gist of it. It's a small circle, many think Oracle is a robot or Artificial Intelligence" Oracle smiles at that, that kind of thinking suits her down to the ground. "It is one of the reasons Nightwing is so unimpressed, he thinks I'm too trusting." the woman shrugs "That's his problem, not mine and most certainly not yours."

***

Plops down to sit and watch GCPD arrive and haul the wrapped robbers out now. "Wow okay." would feel special but she kind of cheated. She grins at the display below "I want Nightwing to like me.. is that wierd… but I dont think he likes anyone…"

***

"Nightwing… wants to be just like Batman." Oracle sighs again and doesn't even try to elaborate on the relationship issues between her and Nightwing. "He just doesn't trust easily… and he worries that you'll be hurt" The wheelchair bound woman smiles sadly "In a way, it's his way of caring."

***

Charlie kicks her feet "I get the not trusting… but I mean you could like background check a secret agent.. I'm just me…" she looks skyward "Well caring is good.. is Batman as lectury and angry all the time?"

***

"Batman is brooding and he has lots of rules." Oracle shakes her head "As to Nightwing and his trust issues, I would really like not to discuss them." It stings Oracle that her judgement isn't enough and she's called to the carpet each time she does something.

***

Charlie mms "Sure thing, Im gonna bounce home and get some sleep." she slips up to her feet now and bounces >pinkruple> and decostumes. Thing is, Babs is probably always going to be the youngest sister batgirl to Dick's Nightwing or some such wierdness.
