Cast of Characters: Phoebe Beacon, Bart Allen, Donna Troy

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    Phoebe had been awake for a few hours now, in the Roost, but taking it very, very easy. Her head was tilted back as she sat on the couch -- not her normal place of sitting in front of the couch and using it as a backrest. Between her feet was an aged dalmatian, his collar recently replaced with something shiney that includes an actual tracker along with his name engraved on it.
    Phoebe herself was wearing a sweater in a dull brown color, plaid flannel pajama bottoms, her feet hidden by the spots of the dalmation.

    She was awake, just resting her eyes.

Bart Allen has posed:
Bart Allen got the word that Phoebe was awake. He would check in with her, and see if she was up for company and upon getting the ok. He would have went out to get Donna to bring her back. He did make a stop to get some of Phoebe's favorite take out. And now, with Donna carried along in his wake, he is coming down one of the alternate exits and coming into the living room. "Hey Phoebe, we are here."

Donna Troy has posed:
    This being Donna's first visit to the Roost, she is accompanied by a whole lot of curiosity. It's a nice place - perhaps not the impressive piece of high-tech showing off that Titans Tower is, but it's a whole lot nicer than the Titans had when they were starting out almost a decade ago. She's impressed.

    No doubt Mister Murder Mittens is equally curious about this new human entering his personal lair. Donna greets her feline investigator with a few softly-spoken words of Greek, which seem to puzzle that cat. Whether this is some secret Amazonian cat-puzzling charm or just a regular feline reaction is anyone's guess.

    "Hey Phoebe," she says with a soft smile. "Sounds like you've had quite an adventure. How are you holding up?"

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    Scout lifts his head, catching on Bart's scent, and he gives a warning 'boof' to Donna, who 3M is investigating first. Always good to have an advance guard.

    Phoebe opens one eye, and she leans forward with some difficulty, resting her elbows on her knees as she looks over to Bart and Donna with a smile.

    "Well. I just spent two weeks either in a cell, in a rock, or using up an awful lot of myself trying to survive some pretty cold temperatures... I think 'exhausted but still living' covers it." she replies with a wry sense, and then her brows knit.

    "How's Diana? I've... not been able to catch up with everything. I've only been awake for a couple of hours yet."

Bart Allen has posed:
Bart Allen nods, and offers the food to Phoebe putting it on a table beside her, and then offers Scout a dog biscuit, tasty but with senior dog vitamins. He gives the guard dog a rub on the head "Keeping her in place, good boy." He says to Scout. "I went by and talked to the titans last night, and Donna asked me to talk to you, but I thought you might want to be able to see and talk to her yourself."

Donna Troy has posed:
    Donna holds her hand out to Scout to let him have a good sniff and figure out who she is, but her eyes are on Phoebe. "Bart gave me the short version," she says. "Sounds pretty rough. Looks like the Outsiders have things well in hand though. As I said to Bart, if there's anyone you need me to knock around a bit - just say the word." She gives Phoebe a quick wink.

    "Perhaps more helpfully, if there's anything we can do at the embassy to make sure this kind of situation doesn't happen in future, then -- well let me know. We have quite a bit of legal pull these days, being officially recognized as a state by the United Nations and all that goes with that. If it would help to be named ward of the Themysciran state or something, I'm sure we could arrange that for you. I know Diana would..."

    She trails off for a moment with a frown. "Diana's not... doing all that great. She hasn't woken from her coma yet. That's really what I wanted to talk to you about. When you're feeling a little stronger, maybe you can... you know. I don't think it's really a physical issue at this stage, she's healed up pretty well. Her injuries were magical in nature though. It might be worth a try seeing what you can do."

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    Scout noms on the biscuit for good boys who are old, allowing Bart to get closer now that the payment has been settled. He still keeps an eye on the two, though, even though as he's accepting pats and treats, he does sit on Donna's foot. HEadpats are expected.

    Phoebe is thankful for the delivery, the white box of veggie pad thai bringing its peanutty goodness as she gives a smile to Donna.

    "Pretty sure between Conner, Laura, and Bart here, along with I'm told an agent of SHIELD, there were knockings around a plenty. There was a lot of people who are under investigation now." she replies, and she shakes her head. "Without knowing who betrayed my powers to the newspaper, I don't think I'll ever find any way to repay the Embassy." she gives a slight smile. "Unless next time someone deicides to put out a reward for my capture, I just hide there; should have gone there in the first place..." she trails off a moment, and then she looks up at Donna, then back to Bart, and then to Donna again, putting the bite of noodley goodness and peanuts that was on her way to her mouth back in the box.

    She stiffly stands "Let me grab my jacket -- we can--" she wobbles a moment.

Bart Allen has posed:
Bart Allen shakes his head and gently guides Phoebe back down "Nope, when your feeling up to it, you need to at least rest another day maybe two. You need your powers done healing you before you try healing others. Which means you need to take care of yourself, and rest up, getting yourself fully healed and fully charged "If Scout sitting on you is not enough, I will see about getting Geoffry to sit on you."

Donna Troy has posed:
    Donna hovers behind Bart, giving him an approving nod. "Impulse is right. You've got some recovering to do before any jacket grabbing is required, Phoebe. Diana's not going anywhere, and you need to recover. She's stable, and you are /not/ going to risk your health, okay? It can wait a few days."

    "You can stay at the Embassy any time you need. But you've got the Outsiders, you've got the Titans, too." Donna gives Phoebe a smile and reaches down to scritch Scout behind his ears. "If you're in trouble again, that's three places you can go to hide out where nobody is going to have a chance of messing with you. I'm serious about the legal side though. It's up to you to decide how you want to deal with this situation, but if we can help out with that, just ask. Diana's rather fond of you, you know."

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    Phoebe flatly looks up to Bart.

    "You are *not* stealing a zoo animal to tempt me into staying put. No matter how many apples I'm allowed to feed him." she points at Impulses's chest, and then she resignedly returns to a sitting upright position. "ANother day, and some good food, I should good to go. They figured out the right combination of drugs to /almost/ kill me and keep my healing aura active. I really hope that information got destroyed... I wouldn't want that falling into anyone's hands." she shudders, and takes up her takeout container again... and she gives a smile up to Donna.

    "Diana offered to take over as my legal guardian when my mom--" she pauses a moment, and her shoulders droop a little. "I know she's fond of me. I look up to her. A lot." she grabs another bunch of noodles "As soon as I found out Wonder Woman was a thing, I was all about it. Which, really, being from Gotham? No sense at all."

Bart Allen has posed:
Bart Allen looks over, and says "Oh did you not get the news Phoebe, I thought someone else told you "Your mom is getting better., she is in recovery, seems one of the doctors was being payed off to give her the wrong medicine, but they caught him, and shield took over her care. She is in recovery and seems like she is going to be all right ."

Donna Troy has posed:
    "When you feel /strong/, okay?" Donna says with a sympathetic smile. "Diana has the best treatment available. She's staying in the medical center at the Halls of Justice, and I've brought in the best healer from Themyscira as well. Like I said, it can wait a little. I just want to make sure we're not leaving any stones unturned."

    "Actually, being from Gotham? I figure that makes a whole lot of sense. Living in Gotham, you need a bit of inspiration I think. My sister has always been an inspiration to me, and I'm from a place where you don't need a reminder every day that there are good things in the world."

    Bart's revelation of good news is a cue for Donna to shut up and let Phoebe react, but she gives Bart's shoulder a quick squeeze of encouragement.

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    Phoebe blinks.

    The noodles drop a second time into the take out container. At this rate she'll never eat her Pad Thai.

    "She's... they..." she trails off, and then she breathes out and she closes her eyes, and two great, big tears well up and begin to drift down her cheeks.

    "She made it. Thank... thank goodness. She made it." she whispers, and then raises her hand to wipe accross her face.

    "I... I promise, Donna, I can be ready tomorrow. Today I just needed to be up and to eat something. I'm not sure if I can do anything for Diana -- but I will do my best. I owe that to Themyscira." she smiles brightly. "For giving me more hope. And to my friends--" she reaches out, and gives a little punch to Impulse's arm.

    "Never doubted you'd find me."

Bart Allen has posed:
Bart Allen smiles and says "Well you helped a lot seemed even with all that, they could keep you down for long." He does blurr off into the other room, and comes back with a box of klenexx "Here ya go." He offers them to her. "Your one of us Phoebe, even of you write us good bye notes your stuck with us."

Donna Troy has posed:
    "No rushing things!" Donna admonishes with a wag of a finger, but also an encouraging smile. "Diana would not want you to push yourself too hard, Phoebe. When you're ready, just give the embassy a call and they'll send someone to pick you up, okay? Or give me a call, you've got my number."

    There's another approving smile to Bart. "You're in with a good crowd here, Phoebe. Listen to the man, he knows what he's talking about. He might not be able to stand still for more than four seconds at a time, but he talks sense."

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    The girl gives a bright smile, and gives a laugh at Donna's description of Bart.

    "Yeah, only time I've ever seen him standing still for more than four minutes is when he's eating." she smiles, and she leans back against the couch, and begins to stuff her face with noodles.

    "I will--" slurp "-- be ready tomorrow to start." she states. "Trust me. I recover quickly."

Bart Allen has posed:
Bart Allen will look at the two, and says "One thousand one, ..One thousand two...One thosand three... One Thousand four.. One thousand five." He sticks his tongue out at Donna, but does zoom off and back with a soft drink and a cup of tea, the same type as she gave him the previous night, nice and warm "May want to let it seep a moment." He offers.

Donna Troy has posed:
    "Even then, only if there's enough food on the table," Donna says to Phoebe in a conspiratorial stage-whisper. "If you're not careful then before the four minutes is up he's off fetching a takeout from Mumbai. "

    She looks down to Scout, giving him more scritches while hiding a smirk at Bart's excercise in standing still, purposely ignoring the tongue being stuck out. When he's back with the drinks, she smirks and gives him a nod. "I owe you an apology, Bart. I will make note of the fact that you can in fact make it all the way up to five."

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    "Mm. With practice, he can maybe make it up to six." she pauses, and then her face darkens, and her ears darken, and she seems suddenly very, very interested in her pad thai as a thought crosses her mind that she has no intention of sharing.

    Scout is very much enjoying the headpats from Donna. His tail wags, and then satisfied he goes and lays down on Phoebe's feet again, to make sure she can't get up and away.

Bart Allen has posed:
Bart Allen will move to have a seat, and lets Mr Murder Mittens climb up his leg for scritching. "As long as I can look after those I care for, I can be in different sapots more often, besides, helps me try to keep an eye on my friends better."

Donna Troy has posed:
    Donna grins slightly at the expression on Phoebe's face. She has spent enough time hanging around speedsters to be all to familiar with the kinds of jokes and thoughts that enter the mind when discussing their idioscyncrasies.

    "Wally's the same," she confirms. "Always rushing around trying to do eighteen things at once. It can be frustrating sometimes trying to get him to concentrate on whatever is actually in front of him, but I wouldn't trade him. Every good team needs a good speedster."

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    "Well, good thing that we have Bart. Otherwise who knows who we'd have to rely on. X-23? Carrie maybe?" she considers jokingly, and as Bart sits down, Phoebe looks over to him and gives a smile.

    "... when he moves on to being a Titan full time, I'm gonna miss him." she murmurs, and then she reaches down and scritches on Scout's head, making the old dog's tail wag with a couple of thumps against the ground.
    "If I feel up to it, I'll head over to the Embassy tomorrow. I'm... pretty sure someone can bring me to Diana from there, right?" she asks, unsure.

    "... mostly because after all the trouble /I/ caused, I don't think I want to encounter The Batman."

Bart Allen has posed:
Bart Allen looks over and says "Me, leave the Outsiders and become a Titan full time? I don't think so. I mean they have Wally anyways, what would they do with two Flashes, and if It does happen, I am dragging the rest of you with me."

Donna Troy has posed:
Donna gives Bart a thoughtful look before turning back to Phoebe with a smile. "You know Cassie's a Titan and an Outsider, it's not like it can't be done. But you guys shouldn't be thinking like that."

     She sweeps an arm, gesturing towards the room around them. "Look what you guys have started here. It's a good thing, and it's worth continuing. There was a time when everyone viewed the Titans as a junior Justice League, like... if we were good little boys and girls, then one day we might be able to move to a real team. Now we're the ones saving the planet. You guys can always count on us to work with you whenever you need some back-up, and none of you have to leave the Outsiders to work with us. Right? We're all in this together."

    Having given Scout lots of attention, Donna offers a finger to Mittens to examine before giving his ears a gentle rub too. "Phoebe. /When/ you feel up to it, just give me a call and I'll take you straight over to the Halls of Justice. Just don't push yourself, okay?"

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    "Heh, well, I'ms ure you all have better medical facilities than a one trick pony like me." Phoebe jokes, and she gives a nod.

    "When I feel up to it. I'll make sure I spar Laura or Tim first to make sure I'm up to it." she jokes to Donna and she leans back against the couch. "... I should be better by tomorrow. Some food and a good night's sleep. The Light will build back up, and I'll give you a ring in the afternoon."
