So I figure by now, everyone's calmed down and realized we're not in any imminent danger here, so I have a question. Does anyone else - of the kids on board, I mean - remember this place at all? I feel like I've been here before, but a long time ago, or like I had a dream about it or something.

It wasn't all decked out for Halloween last time, though. I'm not sure if I should be weirded out by it or not. Halloween in Gotham's usually a fiasco.

[Private to Tim]

Do you need help dealing with anyone? [He saw you talking to that very angry scary girl and vaguely remembers you/has a sense you're to be trusted, so. B(] Also, I could maybe stand to borrow a sweatshirt or something, if you don't mind. Everything in my room's like, six sizes too big.

I've been thinking about that flood we had a while back, where we turned into people from history, I guess? And whoever I was, it wasn't like he was anyone important, but it still made me think about a few things.

Now, I'm not saying everyone turned into some direct ancestor or something, but it kind of made me realize I really don't know that much about my family history. For all I know, that kid was some distant relative of mine. I know basically nothing about my mom's side of the family except that she was a dental assistant before she married my dad and her dad died when I was five or six, and anything I have about my dad's is kind of spotty.

When you're a kid, you don't usually ask too many questions about where your great-great whatever grandfather came from, or why he decided to move somewhere or enlist in the army, and if they did say anything about it, I don't remember. And if I have any living relatives, they either didn't know I exist or didn't have an interest in taking me in after my parents died, so it's not like I can just call them up and ask questions. But it would be kind of interesting to know something beyond a really vague Dad's side was Romany, Mom's was probably something from western European.

You been keeping out of trouble?

[Dick's managed to get the communicator on, but since he's definitely not capable of picking it up and carrying it around with him, it's still on his bedside table from the night before the flood started. Although he's a bird and therefore pretty expressionless, Dick is actually pretty excited that he's been able to fly, and if he were human, would be smiling like woah.

He's a Steller's Jay, which is about the size of a Blue Jay, native to the American West and generally a pretty awesome animal.]

You know, I spent a lot of my childhood wondering what it was like to fly. Being an acrobat and skydiving and all that gets you pretty close, but it's just not the same thing. This... This is pretty awesome.

I mean, obviously I'm starting to miss opposable thumbs - [And here he's lifting one foot to show off his lack of fingers.] But this isn't permanent, so might as well enjoy it while we can, right?

[And with that, he's off to do a few swoops around his room, some of which can be seen from the camera. After a moment, realizing he's left the comm on, he swoops back over and adds:] And if someone could look in on Aristotle for me, that would be great. I'm pretty sure I'm not big enough to refill his food dish when I'm like this.

[Spam, backdated to day one of the flood]

[There is a Steller's Jay flying around the Barge, generally enjoying being able to fly, which means a lot of aerial tricks and taking corners way too quickly and swooping and generally making a bit of a scene. He will literally be all over - except warden locked areas, since he's not big enough to carry his item around with him - so feel free to run into him wherever you like.]

[ooc: I believe the plan is for Slade to mock hunt Dick, who will then run screaming head to Tim's room because small birds are like tasty snack food to panthers, but anyone is welcome to encounter him around the Barge. Milbury, if you want to spam him after he gets there with David, I'm totally down. :D]
