drift along
Once upon a time, there was a girl, born to be something unlike the world had ever seen. A dancing hunter. But she didn't want that. And so, she ran away.

She was only a runaway girl named Cain.

Tim stalking Cass from Robin #119 from Jon Lewis and Pete Woods.

Don’t kid yourself, Tim, even money says she’s known you were there all along. She even says “I am always watching” to those guys.

So, basically at this point Tim is convinced that there is a traitor amongst the ranks of the bat-family, so naturally he chooses to target poor Cass with his suspicions first. I’m not convinced by his inner-monologe comment about Cass lacking any concept of morality before meeting Bruce, if that were the case, why would she have ever parted ways with her father?

I can’t decide if Lewis didn’t really get her, or if he was writing Tim in-character as not really getting her, but the end result is about the same.

My read on this scene? 

Cass knows perfectly well that Tim is there, and why. As ever, she understands and grasps quite a bit more than she lets on. She would literally only have needed a passing glance at Tim pursuing her to read the suspicion and distrust etched subconsciously into his every movement and expression. She knows, and yet (possibly to save Tim’s wounded pride since he thinks he’s being sneaky) she pretends to not notice him until the end. 

Why? Because she understands, deep down, why the others will probably always harbor some distrust towards her, she understands that naturally if Tim thinks something is afoot he’s going to investigate her first.

She understands, but it doesn’t hurt any less.

As usual, Cass suffers in silence.

my girl

[Hello friends and followers! I kind of have a thing to say- while I do write greeters, I may not write one for everyone because they quickly get really generic to be honest. And. Honestly. I’m kinda discouraged by how often they go ignored. So yeah. Anyways if you ever want to rp just shoot me an ask and we can wing it from there. Yaaaay.]

She really should pay attention to her wanderings, really. Because currently she had no clue where she was- granted, that wasn’t unusual in the long run but she at least recognized Gotham. 

… It was called Gotham, right? Words are hard and she’s not quite sure if it’s worth it to learn any yet.

But this city was definitely not Gotham- it was bright and relaxed in comparison, with the water on the opposite end of town. Not nearly as big too, which was bad for hiding. Thankfully, no one ever looked on rooftops. Except this boy with his weird costume with the skulls and red. He had, in the brief time since he appeared, made no move to attack or anything, so Cassandra showed no emotion but simple curiosity. After all, he was very strange.

Green. Lots of green. She’d seen something like that once before and that hadn’t been paint or anything- was that the same for him as well? Curiously, Cassandra glanced over at the other once more before reminding herself that suddenly going up to strangers to examine whether or not their skin was truly green was a bad idea. Could get noticed and she kind of liked not getting noticed. Especially with how many people she’s run into lately. … Aw, forget it, she wanted to know.
