Fan Fic / Girls Night Out

Go To

The police needed aid that could operate outside the system. And if Batman and the Justice League were too busy to do it, then someone else was going to have to.

Girls' Night Out is an ongoing fanfic series by Chellerrific based in the universe of Greg Weisman's and Brandon Vietti's Young Justice cartoon. The first story in the series, Hunter & Hunted, focuses on Barbara Gordon and Bette Kane when they, for their own individual reasons, decide to become superheroes (as you do). An interquel focusing on Karen Beecher and Kara Kent, Takeoffs & Landings, followed. At least two more stories (probably more) are planned.


Provides Examples Of:

  • Action Fashionista: Bette puts a lot of effort into getting her costume just right.
  • Action Girl: All the major characters to some degree. Barbara studies judo; Bette is skilled in both gymnastics and aikido and decides to take up kickboxing; Karen doesn't know any specific martial arts, but her suit allows her to engage in direct combat with stronger foes; and Kara, naturally, knows Klurkor.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Cousins Conner and Kara Kent and their comrade Karen.
  • Badass Normal: Barbara and Bette have no superpowers whatsoever. Karen is a normal human who only has enhancements via her super suit. They're part of the Justice League and fighting super villains nonetheless.

  • Badass Unintentional: Sure Karen built the suit, but for science, not ass-kicking.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Most of the characters prefer to go bare knuckles, at least to start out with; the exceptions are Karen, Lawton, Harley Quinn, and Scandal Savage.
  • Brainy Brunette: Karen is less of The Smart Guy than is typical, but she is a science genius who invented, designed, and built a flying super suit for herself by age 15.
  • The Cavalry: The police in Barbara's first battle, an unseen brick-thrower in another, and Superman followed by Wonder Woman, Hal Jordon, and John Stewart in Karen's first "tussle."
  • Character Focus: Barbara and Bette in the first one, Karen and Kara in the second, and more to come later.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Karen's suit provides her superpowers.
  • Continuity Cameo: Every character named so far exists in or is based on someone from the DCU. Even Stacy the secretary.

  • Daddy's Girl: Barbara decides to take up the mantle of Batgirl expressly for the purpose of helping out her father, Police Commissioner Jim Gordon.
  • Fiery Redhead: Barbara. Definitely more on the rational side but still very passionate and intense.
  • Flying Brick: Kara. Karen's suit puts her a lot closer to this than normal humans generally get.
  • Forgets to Eat: Karen's family is so used to her doing this they have steps in place to stop it.
