Summary: What do you do if your heart’s in one city but you live in another? Besides commute?

Barbara didn’t have a team anymore. Sometimes she called someone in for a favor, but they didn’t stay long. Didn’t stay at all. They didn’t help her move or recommend books to her. They didn’t make connections. Dinah had never asked about it, but she’d seen Barbara at Bruce’s funeral. She understood.

Internet Radio - BoP TV Fanfic Discussion on 10/29 with North and BG Oct. 23rd, 2009 @ 10:50 am
Dear readers,

Having just completed my sprawling interview of Nancylee Myatt, Christina Cox, and Liz Vassey for television programs like Nikki & Nora, South of Nowhere, Defying Gravity, and CSI, Femslash4Fans Radio moves back to talking to regular fanfic authors such as you and I. A brand new show will be airing LIVE on Thursday, October 29th, at 10 PM EST - just in time for Halloween. Because really, what is spookier than Gotham at night, where people in costumes are a nightly terror?


Birds of Prey - North and BG share Barbara/Helena With Us

All right, so it lasted only thirteen episodes, nowhere near as long as Smallville, the show whose success on The WB helped spawn it. And maybe it wasn't the critics' favorite that year. And I suppose many of the main characters were just a bit different from their comic-book counterparts. None of that ever stopped Birds of Prey fans from their undying devotion to Oracle and Huntress. You think Batman and Robin had something going on? That's nothing compared to the subtexty relationship between mentor Barbara Gordon and protege Helena Kyle. (No, not Bertinelli, Kyle. Just go with it.) And if perhaps the writing wasn't always great, that just means there are plenty of fan fiction authors out there who took up the challenge, sought to do better than the source material that inspired them - and succeeded. We'll be talking to two of them this night - North, who wrote stories like "Poison" and "Strain" that drew extra inspiration from the show's comic-book roots, and BG, author of the massive "Elemental" series and a writer whose work reflected the knowledge that Harley Quinn was much more than a ruthless sociopath. We'll talk to them about the show, about the comics, and about why the romance between a super-powered crime fighter and a paraplegic computers genius has endured for so long.

All past shows can be downloaded at www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine, including my interview of harper_m, where Birds of Prey was one of the subjects discussed.

Listeners who choose to listen live can also call the show at (347) 637-1231 if they have questions of their own that they'd like to ask North or BG.

I hope you'll tune in :)

Sincerely, Allaine

Birds of Prey fic: Who I Am (is not who I was) Oct. 20th, 2009 @ 12:40 pm
Title: Who I Am (is not who I was)
Fandom: Batman
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2,317
Characters/Pairings: Babs/Dinah, Zinda, Misfit, references to Ollie/Dinah.
Summary: Dinah’s not who she used to be. She just doesn’t know who she is now.

There was a time when Dinah was a bimbo. She looks back at that time with more nostalgia than it was probably worth. She dressed up in fishnets, flirted with Ollie, and oh yeah, fought crime. Whenever she was captured, a strapping young man would save her. It was fun and it was easy and she never had to ask if there was more to life, or if her mother really was proud of her.

Birds Fic: Regarding the Rehab of Broken Superheroines Oct. 15th, 2009 @ 04:41 pm
Title: Regarding the Rehab of Broken Superheroines
Rating: G-ish
Characters/Pairing: Babs+Dinah (or Babs/Dinah, if you read the canon that way)
Summary: A coda to BoP #80. Babs and Dinah discuss Helena's departure and the implications for their relationship.

( Follow the fake cut. )

fic: 'even a fist was once an open palm and fingers' [Manhunter/Huntress] Aug. 11th, 2009 @ 03:39 pm
title: even a fist was once an open palm and fingers
author: ellenm. aka quasiradiant
fandom: dcu. especially birds of prey, but drawing heavily from manhunter and huntress: year one.
pairings: kate spencer (manhunter) / helena bertinelli (huntress)
rating: nc-17, for graphic descriptions of murder, bondage, and nonsexual violence.
word count: ~34,000

summary: Kate Spencer, better known to Los Angeles' criminal element as Manhunter, has hung up the cape in favor of a normal life, which certainly doesn't involve any kind of relationship with Helena Bertinelli, Kate's best friend and co-vigilante, Huntress.  But news of a serial killer hunting lawyers in Miami draws Kate to the East Coast and Manhunter out of hiding.  With Kate and Helena on the case, it doesn't seem like anything can go wrong.  Until it really, really does. Or: what might happen if Jeffery Deaver wrote for DC.

notes: set a few months after the final issue of birds of prey and ignoring everything that's occurred since, including the events in the Oracle mini. title from Yehuda Amichai's poem "Anniversaries of War." written for thelittlebang and betaed incredibly by thenewhope and cleo2584. any remaining mistakes are my own.

DC comics fic: Five People Barbara Slept With And One She Fell In Love With Jul. 18th, 2009 @ 07:29 pm
Title: Five People Barbara Slept With And One She Fell In Love With
Fandom: Birds of Prey comics
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,510
Characters/Pairings: Barbara/Dinah, Barbara/Power Girl, Barbara/Helena, Barbara/Zinda, Barbara/Dick
Summary: There’s always a difference between getting what you want and keeping it.

Even when they were just voices to each other, Dinah was affectionate. Cooing, joking, concerned when Barbara sounded depressed, overjoyed when there was laughter in Barbara’s tone. Barbara knew she should’ve deepened her voice into the computerized baritone of the Oracle, but she kept letting the scrambler do less and less work, snuggling closer to Dinah, until it was just her voice in the Canary’s ear.
