The underworld had been abuzz with information - information readily available to an enterprising young vigilante with a extensive knowledge of pressure points. Someone was pulling together a lot of freelance muscle, and the word on the street was that the target would be the Gotham Diamond Exchange, in the city's East End.

To that end, Damian had shifted his patrol route to take him near the Exchange for the past few nights, anticipating that sooner or later, his patience would pay off.

He alights on a nearby rooftop, crouching atop an air conditioning unit and letting the dark outer layer of his cloak envelop him in shadows, watching for signs that his patience would be rewarded.

Steph's been tracking down Miss Magpie for the last week. She'd thought her substitute teacher was a bit off, what with all the rubbing of hands and muttering about shinies, but Miss Pye hadn't been the weirdest substitute teacher her class had ever had. Not until the principal's pearl necklace went missing, anyways. And while she'd had kleptomaniac teachers before, there weren't so many who replaced their thefts with bombs.

On the plus side, nobody died and everyone got out of school early. On the double plus side, the Spoiler had a new case. Her sources said that there was easy money coming out of some supervillain named The Magpie - Google gave her a short newspaper article, and a recognizable picture - and Steph knew how she was spending her Friday night. She's trailed them to the Gotham Diamond Exchange, staying lowkey on her moped.

From what she'd seen, there were just a few more henchpersons than she was comfortable with tackling on her own. She'll have to plan this out, strategize. Parking her moped behind a dumpster and locking it securely to a pipe, she uses the grapple Tim gave her to get to the rooftop. Time to scope out the scene. If nothing else, she can call the cops, she guesses.

Then she spots the brat wonder. A mischievous idea prompts her, and Spoiler sneaks up behind him. "Stay frosty," she gravels, hoping she's caught him by surprise.

"Whoa whoa whoa!" Spoiler exclaims, dodging the kick by the skin of her teeth and Batgirl's training. "We're all friendlies here! I think." She doublechecks that thought. "Well, I'm friendly. I don't know about you." She folds her arms and glares at Robin, trying to broadcast aggressive non-aggression as loud as she can.

Spoiler calms herself down. That's how the brat wonder is, she reminds herself - knives first, then talking. "That's what I was wondering," she sasses back. "Magpie isn't that interesting. Got something on your mind, little guy?"

She's not going to sit, just yet, but she'll stand next to him where she can dive off the building if something happens. But she does relax. Robin's good in a fight. It's nice to have someone in her corner. If he doesn't steal the case from her, anyways.

Spoiler eyes him bemusedly. "You're not gonna be short forever," she points out. "Might as well use it before you start being able to slam-dunk criminals into basketball hoops." If his dad was any indication, anyways.

She shrugs it off. "Want to team up?" she asks. "It'll be easier if we work together. And if it's Magpie, she's going to have plenty of explosives around." They had to minimize that damage while taking out her henches and managing to get to her. Too many explosions in the wrong places, and the building could come crashing down around them, which would be a fun time for approximately nobody.
