Title: hoping to find (what i can’t figure out yet); chapter 1
Author: Sydney Redfield
Fandom: Birds of Prey
Pairing: Dinah Lance/Helena Bertinelli
Disclaimer: This isn’t real. I own nothing.
Summary: “I realized after I got to my class, I never got your name.”
“Oh, um- Helena.” She stands, hand outstretched awkwardly for a handshake. “Helena Rosa.”
“Dinah Lance,” she says, laughing as she shakes Helena’s hand. Her hands are cold from the bottles of beer, but Helena’s hands are warm - so warm - and Dinah doesn’t want to let go.
OR; The college AU where they become friends and fall a little bit (a lot) in love.
A/N: Thanks to @konako and the anon who put this in my head and now it’s become a monster that won’t leave me alone. Also thanks to stoveek for making sure I understand the English language and how to use commas.

*Poison Ivy running into Harley’s new place*
Poison Ivy: Harley what the fuck did I miss?
Cass, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee: hey plant lady
Poison Ivy: Harley what the FUCK did I miss?
Sometimes a family can be a cop, a pickpocket, a psycho, a songbird and a Mafia princess, and I think that’s beautiful.
Dinah looking a bit feral here. Jurnee played her perfectly.
Birds of Prey (1999) #99
Harley: Is very chaotic. She can swing between being super bored and being super engaged in something. Cuts up all her clothes to make new ones. Does really weird craft projects.
Dinah: Is worrying about money. “Club singer” isn’t a particularly high-paying job, and she doesn’t like taking money from Helena’s fortune, but she’s very responsible with her money. She takes the time to practice her hobbies and learn to cook better.
Helena: Is very disciplined. She has a schedule and she sticks to it. She misses going to work out, but she goes on lots of runs and has a grueling inside calisthenics routine. She takes an opportunity to try out sleeping in and being lazy (lots of things she missed out on when she was training to get her revenge)
Cass: Goes very stir crazy, but she’s living with Harley, who’s both entreating and pretty good at coming up with stories and projects and weird shit to do that can be done inside. Gets very excited for trips to the grocery store.
Renee: Pulls all-nighters obsessively researching whatever person/event she thinks might be suspicious. Makes like four bulletin boards of pictures connected with red string, because she thinks they suit her vibe. She winds up keeping them as decor.

Hello, people who have pretty decent internet connection.
Do any of you want to watch Birds of Prey?
I’m planning on streaming it live on Discord, so if any of you wants to watch it, just send me a message and I’ll send you the invite.
after birds of prey, if any of you have any other movie or shows you want to watch to relieve stress and anxiety, just send requests to me and I’ll try to see if I can get a copy of them.
I literally have an addiction for Birds of Prey… yo
But like can we talk about the two actresses for a second?
Like Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollett-Bell have one hell of a chemistry. Like some of the interviews these two were in were nuts and way too damn adorable.
And… I would love to share the links with all you black canary and huntress shippers as well 😋

Moments of them being hella adorable before interviews:
I know the last two videos I think are from Jurnee’s Instagram or the birds of prey Instagram I’m not entirely sure. I know Mary doesn’t have Instagram.
But yea, if these two weren’t married or seeing someone than I’d want them to be together not gonna lie. But yea, canary and huntress will be enough for me shipping crave for now lol
Also, I know if there’s is a birds of prey 2, both these guys deadass want their characters together. And I’m hella down for that.
I hope you enjoyed my ted talk/ presentation, thank you!!!!
Huntress and Black Canary need their own TV show please and thank you
