Home Sweet Home (open) @ 08:16 pm


Gotham wasn't a nice town or a pretty one, but it was home and dammit it felt good to be home. Helena was very glad to be back and to be back to work. It was a little difficult explaining why she was gone, but it went reasonably well. She had also missed her own bed. A lot.

Most of all she missed being Huntress. The first night back she was in costume and out patrolling. It felt good to be doing something good again and to put Khandaq behind her. What the hell was she thinking sleeping with Adam? Getting married was keeping her word, which was very important to Helena, but sleeping with him was something else entirely. She really needed to get over this thing she had for the wrong type of guy. It got her in trouble more often than not.

It was the end of a patrol and Helena returned to her apartment. A drink, maybe a little reading and then bed.

Something Old, Something Borrowed, Something New, and Something Blue @ 08:05 pm


Every little girl dreamed of their wedding day, but Helena Bertinelli never thought hers would have ended up like this. Sure the dress was beautiful and everything was perfect and right out of a fairy tale, but Helena hadn’t really cared. She had barely payed attention during most of the ceremony until the end when they were pronounced man and wife.

Adan jussed her and the two turned to face the assembled crowd. She forced a smile and waved. Adam escorted her to the great banquet hall where the reception was to take place. A few more hours of forcing herself to smile and then she would have to worry about the wedding night.

A Guilded Cage @ 08:10 pm


The first day had been spent wandering outside around the grounds of the palace. Helena had a hard time sitting still and being confined to a certain area had made it harder. Dinner had been tense, but Helena had been polite and on her best behavior. She had even put a filter between her brain and mouth to not offend her host.

The second day she spent wandering inside the palace. She had to admit that it was very beautiful. She could almost imagine herself as a princess and living in a place like this. Though as beautiful as it was, it was still a cage. A week could be a very long time.

Helena walked slowly down a long hallway and looked at the masterpieces that adorned the walls.

Welcome to Khandaq @ 10:52 pm


"A vacation would do you some good," Babs said. Helena was still wondering why she went along with this. She didn't need a vacation. What she needed was to be out on the streets of Gotham kicking some bad guy ass. That was the best therapy and stress relief one could ask for.

As it was they were on a plane on their way from India to Egypt. They had spent four days in India and had seen the Taj Mahal and were now on their way to Cairo to spend a few days in Egypt to see the pyramids. Granted Helena did enjoying seeing the Taj Mahal, she still didn't think she needed a vacation.

She sat on the plane and looked out the window to watch the clouds go by.

Who Are You? @ 07:37 pm


The identity of the individual known as Oracle was something that had been eating at Calculator for some time now. He /had/ to know who Oracle was.

He had tried in the past to find the identity of Oracle, but each time he had been unsuccessful. There had been a few times when he had been close, but he had failed each time. He wasn't going to fail this time and he /would/ discover Oracle's identity.

His past attempts had been analyzed and he realized that his approached needed to change. Going directly after Oracle had failed, now it was time to go after her through the people around her. Calculator knew Oracle worked with some female crime fighters in Gotham and they would be her undoing.

He placed a call. He knew just whom to call.

Giving Thanks @ 05:12 pm


"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." JFK

In America today is a day for being thankful for the things in people's lives. Today was a day to celebrate family, friends, prosperity and health with food, family and friends. It is a time to reflect on what is important us and to recognize the gratitude we hold for having those things in our lives.

Night In Gotham (open) @ 04:51 am



It was a hard city. It was her city.

Helena Rosa Bertinelli was an English teacher by day, but by night she was the Huntress.

A local drug dealer was having his sellers getting closer and closer to her school. No one messed with her kids. Drugs near her school would not be tolerated, nor would gangs. As soon as she heard about the drugs dealers Helena made a plan to take action. There would be no drugs near her kids.

After school had let out, she donned her costume and went hunting.

The low level guys were taken out rather easily. It took Helena a little while to find the upper management, but she did find them. It had been a brutal fight, but in the end she had won. The only problem she had was that the bigwig wasn't there.

Now Helena was looking for him.
