PROLOGUE: Let The Games Begin…

Backstage

Director: *eyes theater full of characters running amuck and causing commotions* We are soooo doomed.
Narrator: *nods slowly, also eyeing the chaos* I know. *sighs heavily*
Director: *sighs heavier* Why us?
Narrator: *innocuously, but with biting sarcasm* Because we’re fictional characters, and must suffer at the whims of our writers? *shrugs* How the fuck should I know?
Director: *groans as the overhead lights flicker in an SOS pattern* Well, I suppose we should get to work…if we want to have any hope of getting this production off the ground.
Narrator: *nods in agreement* Nothing to it but to do it.

CRASH! BOOM! BANG!

Director and Narrator: *in unison* We should have rehearsed this.

Both Jean-Pauls: Go fish.
Remy LeBeau: *sighs*

Narrator: …two black canaries…

Tim Drake: *tired of being pestered by Dinah* Even if I did becoming your sidekick, I’d still end up wearing yellow feathered shorts, so I wouldn’t be a black canary.
Dinah Lance: *deflates* Aw, crap. I hate it when you’re right.
Tim Drake: *sniffs superciliously* I’m Robin; I’m always right.
Jason Todd and Stephanie Brown: *snorfle*

Narrator: …and one Robin who became Nightwing.

Tula: …

Garth of Shayeris: *eyes lovers, past and present, and chooses to go bury his head in the sand until this verse of the song is over*

Director: *mumbles under breath* Smart man. Fish. Whatever.

Narrator: …six criminals fleeing…

Helena Bertinelli: You’re all fruitcakes.

Narrator: …and one Robin who became Red Hood.

Jason Todd: *shrieks like a girl* What?! What about that series where I became Draco?

Jason Todd: *sulks* Canon sucks. In canon, both you and I are dead.
Stephanie Brown: *peevishly* At least you got to come back.
Jason Todd: Yeah, as a supervillian. And not just a supervillain, a really evil one.
Stephanie Brown: *shrugs* You take what you can get.

On the ninth day of Christmas, DC Comics gave to me…

Narrator: Nine reindeer prancing …

Gar Logan: I have no idea where we’re supposed to get nine reindeer.
Vic Stone: You could turn into one.
Gar Logan: Yes, Ironside, one. Where are we supposed to get the other eight?
Vic Stone: *shrugs* How should I know? Casting and props are the Director’s job.
Gar Logan: And why nine, anyway? I thought there were only eight reindeer in that poem.
Vic Stone: Well, you can’t forget Rudolph.
Gar Logan: *sarcastically* Riiiiight…

Narrator: …eight nosy reporters …

Clark Kent: *gulps and backs away from Mad Dog Lane*

Director: *whimpers pitifully*

Narrator: …seven Atlanteans swimming…

Garth of Shayeris: Yes, but swimming where?

Narrator: …six criminals fleeing…

The Riddler: Yeah, but fleeing from what? Riddle me that, why dontcha?
The Mad Hatter: After all, we’re already mad! *giggles*
Hugo Strange: *eyes the Ventriloquist* Some of us more than others.

Barbara Gordon: *puts comforting hand on shoulder* Yeah, but you do, and that’s all that matters.

Barbara Gordon: Besides, you’ve been Black Canary for almost twenty years. It’s a little late to try and break in a new identity.

Narrator: …and one Robin who is known as number three.

Tim Drake: Wait, that’s all I get?
Dick Grayson: Well, you haven’t gone on to a different identity.
Carrie Kelly: In canon, anyway. You’ve been known as everything from Shadowlance to Goshawk in fic.
Jason Todd and Stephanie Brown: *in unison* And at least you’re not dead.

On the tenth day of Christmas, DC Comics gave to me…

Narrator: Ten vigilantes sleeping…

Secret: *eyes slumbering heroes* Why are they asleep?
Slobo: They ain’t asleep; they fainted.

Garth of Shayeris: Arthur, why are you hiding under the stage?
Arthru Curry: *puts finger to lips* Shhh! I’m avoiding Oracle.
Garth of Shayeris: *curious* Why?
Arthur Curry: *whispers* She’s trying to talk me into being Santa Claus for the cast party.
Garth of Shayeris: Why don’t you want to do it?
Arthur Curry: I overheard Harley Quinn say she was going to prove to Santa that she’d been a good girl this year, and I don’t want any part of it!
Garth of Shayeris: *gobsmacked*

Narrator: …six criminals fleeing…

Harley Quinn: *runs from Joker* But Puddin’, I was only gonna sit on his lap!

Poisons Ivy: *coos and pets plant* Ivan, now you know too much sugar isn’t good for you…
Flytrap: *expires*
Poisons Ivy: Ivan! *sobs*
Two-Face: *eyes widen and he backs away from Poison Ivy* C’mon, kid, let’s get while the getting’s good.
Stephanie Brown: *dutifully scampers after* Don’t you need to flip a coin first?
Two-Face: We’re not insane enough to need to flip over Ivy.

Narrator: …four bawling Birds (of Prey)…

Dick Grayson: What?
Tim Drake: *looking ill* Steph made them eat her fruitcake.
Jason Todd: *also slightly green* You too, huh?

Narrator: …three French superheroes…

Remy LeBeau: Eh, well, leastways it’s better ‘n Antarctica. *munches on fruitcake*
Both Jean-Pauls: *in unison* I can’t believe you’re eating that!
Remy LeBeau: What? If Rogue’s cookin’ didn’t kill this ‘ol Cajun, nothin’ will.

Narrator: …two black canaries…

Dinah Lance: *heaves into toilet* I certainly feel bad enough for there to be two of me.

Narrator: …and one Robin who was the very first Spoiler.

Stephanie Brown: *proudly* First and only!

Backstage

Jason Todd: What gives with all the happy? She’s dead, too.
Tim Drake: *hisses* Be quiet! Do you want her to hear you?
Dick Grayson: Yeah, Little Wing. It’s bad enough that you told her pointblank you didn’t like her fruitcake. Do you want her to batarang your ass?
Jason Todd: *sighs*

On Stage

Carrie Kelly: *bounces on toes* I’m next, I’m next!

Director: *in time with hitting his head on his desk* We know, we know…

Vic Stone: Wait for me, green genes!
Anita Fite, Cassie Sandsmark, Kon-El, Tim Drake, and Secret: *follow in their wake*

Koriand’r: *pouts* Why did they leave? This leaping of frogs sounds like such fun.
Slobo: If anyone tries to leap me, I’ll frag ‘em!

Narrator: …nine ‘fraidy cats…

Catwoman: Funnily enough, I’m not the one being chased across rooftops tonight. *cracks whip* Here, Batty…

Jean Grey: *strikes heroic pose* No, I’m Marvel Girl.
Scott Summers: *groans at the bad pun*

Narrator: …seven Atlanteans swimming…

Garth of Shayeris: *tries in vain to stifle grin* It’s…really you, Arthur.
Arthur Curry: *glowers from underneath red and green hat with golden jingle bells on points* I detest this ‘Santa Claus’ legend. *stomps candycane-striped leg in green pointed-toe-with-golden-bell shoe* But the only way I could convince Oracle not to make me play Santa Claus was to agree to be an…elf.

Narrator: …six criminals fleeing…

Two-Face: No, we don’t want to play Santy Claus, bitch!
Barbara Gordon: *hmmphs* Well, you don’t have to be rude about it!

Narrator: …five bursting bombs…

Grant Emerson: *eyes sizzling wreckage that once was Charlie Brown’s pitiful Christmas tree* Why do I always get stuck on bomb squad detail?

Toni Monetti: *shrugs* People like a scapegoat.

Narrator: …four bleary-eyed Birds (of Prey)…

Cassandra Cain: *using Bat techniques not to show pain* Yeah.

Narrator: …three French superheroes…

Jean-Paul Beaubier: *steaming mad because Catwoman stole the playing cards* This fic is a joke.
Jean-Paul Valley: *perks up* Oh! Speaking of jokes, I know a good one.
Remy LeBeau: *sighs tiredly* Go on.
Jean-Paul Valley: What do you get when you cross the Sandman and Catwoman around Christmastime?
Remy LeBeau and Jean-Paul Beaubier: *perplexed* Who are they?
Jean-Paul Valley: *triumphantly* Sandy Claws!
Remy LeBeau and Jean-Paul Beaubier: *groan in unison*

Narrator: …the second Black Canary…

Dinah Lance: *considers* That’s better, but still not quite right.

Narrator: *fumes* …and one Robin who became Catgirl.

Dick Grayson: *shakes head* You and Jason both – choosing new monikers based on old villains.
Carrie Kelly: *stars in eyes* Shut up.
Dick Grayson: *muses* Come to think of it, bro, wasn’t there a Timfinity fic where you were ‘Catboy’?
Tim Drake: *glares* That’s ‘The Cat,’ and don’t even go there, bro.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, DC Comics gave to me…

Backstage

Roy Harper: *nostalgically* I once had a band, you know. The Great Frog.
Wally West: *under his breath* More like the We’re Grateful That it’s Dead Frog.

Grant Emerson: Duh-nuh.

Narrator: …three French superheroes…

Remy LeBeau: Merry Christmas to all…
Jean-Paul Beaubier and Jean-Paul Valley: …and to all a good night!

Narrator: …the twins of Black Canary (and Batman)…
