Most of the patrons I've talked to are from an alternate Earth. Which is weirdly selective, but there it is. There are a lot that don't have the League, Metropolis, or a lot of familiar personalities. Or anyone from the mask and cape crowds at all.

A few of the closer ones:

Early Bird
Contact: Dinah Lance (Florist)
Known Differences: Justice League started earlier. Mars may not be inhabited (still has Martian Manhunter)?

Contact: Lois Lane (Yup. Her.)
Known Differences: Metropolis and Gotham are in Kansas. No contact w/ Mars publicly.

Contact: Batwoman
Known Differences: See contacts, mentioned multiple Bat themed vigilantes in Gotham at different times. May or may not be Early Bird at a differnt point in the timeline.

I Spy
Contact: Mark Grayson (student)
Known Differences: No Justice League. Guardians of the Globe. The SM counterpart was also scouting for an alien invasion and killed the whole team. Fun times.

There are some weird universe out there.

Inside a mountain, a teen girl shoves a duffel bag of dirty clothes into a washer. Other people are just delaying doing their homework. Or hanging out. (Robin is already done. Who's surprised?)

"Any idea what Artemis is up to?" asks Kid Flash, reaching for a bowl of pretzels.

Robin reaches over to pull the bowl closer, "You mean beside doing her laundry?"

"Yeah! No, I mean why do her laundry here? Why not at home?"

"What, do I look like M'Gann? 'Cause if you say 'yes' we're getting your eyes checked."

"Just, you know, curious. That's all."

"Uh huh. Sure."

Artemis hears the laughing first. Like a monkey run through a player piano.

What ever, it's mostly a quiet night otherwise in Gotham. (Two robbers and a jewel thief might be headlines in the flyover states, but this is Gotham. No one was themed tonight but her.)

It's kids her age, playing tag with a killer robot. The sidekicks.

No Speedy. No archer.

It limits them. The powers are enough to keep Robin at bay, Kid Flash's speed not up to tangling with the full range options this robot it putting out. None of them are one on one or even two at a time.

Just one set of powers at a time for the superpowered Xerox machine though...

That's something useable.

With the faintest smile she reaches for the broadheads in the quiver (can't go wrong with the classics) and draws back on her bow...

Hello Ms. A:
I am afraid that, without transmitting more data than you stated to be desirable, a properly fitted safety mask is out of the question.
Please see about booking an appointment or I will not be responsible for that portion of your equipment.

Kittlemeyer Hardware,

Artemis switched the email app off to check the calendar again. The tenth then. Saturdays were free and the weekend shoppers would help cover her traffic. Good to have a plan.

The best lies are the ones you don't tell.

Lies of omission.

Don't mention that Mom is in prison, that Jade is on the run, that Dad is a contract henchman for themed villains.

Skip your last name. Who uses that to introduce themselves? Be Artemis, free of any trailing family connections.

Not that Artemis doesn't come with some extra freight here but it's archery freight. She can deal with archery.

Everything else? She'll just have to see.

”And traffic is the topic of our next story. With snow clearing behind this year and another large storm coming soon accidents are up all over Gotham...”

Artemis reaches out a slaps a hand on her clock radio snooze button.

β€œ...Including the cities remaining historic traffic circles.”

She grabs the entire radio and pulls.

The world, when it starts, is a cold, hard place.

At least it is for one Artemis Crock.

The air is fresh (she's out of Gotham) and cold (north or just a very clear night stipping away heat - can't tell which yet). It's quiet.

"...Damn it Dad."

Also completely dark.

OK. Step one: Steal some shoes.
