Title: Step One
Characters: Stephanie Brown/Spoiler

Notes: Just a quick piece I wrote about Stephanie Brown in her early days, when she was still Spoiler, while at work. Title is from Superchick's "One More": I might get used to giving up / So I am showing up tonight / I am my own enemy / The battle fought within my mind / If I can overcome step one / I can face the 99

Summary: Practice makes perfect, and birds learn to fly by falling out of their parent's nest. Blue birds, robins...and now, Stephanie Brown. First the fall, and then the flight.

Stephanie hits the pavement and only grunts a little.

Title: We Were Real

Notes: For this mix I wanted to use only upbeat songs sung by female vocalists. It proved to be a lot harder than I would have thought, which says a lot about my music collection (depressing, downbeat songs sung by men or instrumentals). I also wanted songs with a focus on something other than love. This mix fluctuated from anywhere between 20 to 6 songs, and at one point has "Little Seal Girl" from As Told By Ginger on it. I kid you not.

I wanted to do this mix because I really love all of the Batgirls. All three of them are such wonderful, inspirational figures for me. Each of these three women have their own individual strengths, and they've all helped each other and worked together. And as each of them has moved on from her cowl, they've only continued to grow and become even stronger. These are the sort of women I aspire to be.

Title: It all went Eggplant-Shaped
Warnings: Apologies for my bad music taste.
Notes: The title is a play off the metaphor "gone pear-shaped," meaning "something that has gone horribly wrong." Because it's not purple, it's eggplant.

Another cob-webby mix fresh off my hard drive. While the cover art for this one is exactly where I want it (give or take a few things, as I don't think I've ever felt 100% about anything) and was actually finished first, contrary to how I usually do things, the mix is a rough one. Looking at this one and the one I just posted for Gaila, they have several songs in common, but the Gaila mix was made a good number of months before the Steph one. Enough of a time difference that I am pretty positive it was complete coincidence.
