Vacation [Plot]

Dawn and John are going on a vacation.
Obscurejones

And when John pulls back they'll find themselves in downtown Gotham.
Who

"Wow, we made it!"
Obscurejones

There was ever any doubt?  No magic lock here.
Who

"Well yeah, but I haven't been here in ages and it's all still....Gothamy."
Obscurejones

It does tend to be a mite static from what I've heard.
Who

"Well lets go play tourist."
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
You know the lay of the land.
Who

"Well it's just like time travel really, lets go grab a paper. See this is what I love about this place, I can talk about time travel as loud as I like and no one bats an eye lid."
Obscurejones

He looks around.
Probably because they all think you're fresh off the asylum.
Who

"Oh wait....we don't have any money do we?"
Obscurejones

He pulls out Snickers.
I have a newspaper acquiring device.  It's very high tech.
Who

"We're going straight to crime?"
Obscurejones

It's petty crime.  Does that even count in this town?
Who

"Good point."

She hauls her crowbar out of a pouch on her belt.
Obscurejones

He stars looking for a newspaper box.
Who

I'm sure there's one on a street corner.
Obscurejones

He walks over and stabs down into the box, carving it in twain.
Who

People seem notice...one of them whips out a phone.

"Hello? Police."

"Well done mister subtle."

Dawn walks over and smacks the phone to the ground with her crowbar.
Obscurejones

He grabs out a newspaper and tosses it to her, grabbing a second for himself.
Who

"Thank you ladies and gents, you've been great."

Hurling a smoke bomb to the crowd she scarpers down an alleyway.
Obscurejones

He shrugs and follows her.
Bit dramatic for a newspaper.
Who

"These people like dramatic."
Obscurejones

If you say so.
He glances over the newspaper.
Who

The front page reads. QUEENS OF CRIME CAPTURED along with two mugshots of Harley and Ivy.

"Well I guess we know what we're doing tonight."
Obscurejones

He waves the dagger.
Remarkably, I also have a "get out of jail" device.
Who

"So, we kill some time and then bust them out of Arkham. Wheeee! It'll be just like old times."
Obscurejones

You've busted sociopaths out of jail before?
Who

"You had doubts?"
Obscurejones

Not really.  When should we do it?
Who

"Wait for it to get dark, that's how this stuff normally works."
Obscurejones

Wouldn't doing it now when there's less long underwear about work better?
Who

"But where's the fun in that? It's the experience."
Obscurejones

I suppose.
Who

"Besides we could totally take any of them."
Obscurejones

Speak for yourself.  I just heal people.
Who

"I'm sure you can still help. So we've got some time, want to get something to eat?"
Obscurejones

I'd kill for a decent cheeseburger.
Who

"Okay, just give me a second."

She walks to the end of the alley and waits.
Obscurejones

He watches her with a quizzical impression.
Who

After a few minutes she yanks someone into the alley and smacks them in the head with the crowbar.

"Got money."
Obscurejones

He gives a light applause as he walks to join her.
Subtle.
Who

"Does this make us evil?"

This said whilst rifling through her victims pockets.
Obscurejones

Nope.
John kicks the man in the ribs.
That does though.
Who

She frowns at him.

"That was unnecessary."
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
Sorry.
Who

"Now come on, lets get going."

She heads back out into the street.
Obscurejones

He waits until she's out of sight and kicks the victim in the head, before following her out into the street.
Who

(Damn you! I was fairly sure John was John but now I'm not sure.)

Dawn's looking for somewhere to eat.
Obscurejones

John follows along whistling softly under his breath.
Who

Dawn stops in front of a building.

"How about here?"
Obscurejones

John glances up to see where they are.
Who

It would appear to be some manner of cafe.
Obscurejones

Works for me.
Who

"Great."

She walks in and grabs a table, perusing the menu.
Obscurejones

He looks around for the register before following her.
Who

It's on a counter.

"Why did you hit that guy anyway?"
Obscurejones

Shrug.
Felt like it.  It's not a problem is it?
Who

"It just doesn't seem like you."
Obscurejones

Sorry.  I guess I'll try to seem more like myself.
Who

"Lets just order."

She waves a waitress over.
Obscurejones

john looks bored and plays with his knife flipping it around in his hand.
Who

"What are you having?"

"I'll have a salad."

"And you?"
Obscurejones

Cheeseburger.
He tosses the knife up and catches it in his jacket pocket.
Who

"Okay."

She walks of with the order.
Obscurejones

John tries doodling on the table with the tip of his finger.
Booooorrrrrrrrreeeeeeeedddddd....
Who

"Is this going to be you everytime we dimension hop?"
Obscurejones

He smiles at her.
I'm fine. No problem whatsoever.
Who

"You just seem restless and violent."
Obscurejones

Nah, I'm fine.
He glances around.
How long do you suppose burger and a salad takes around here?
Who

"Don't know, not long I hope."
Obscurejones

He starts drumming on the table.
Who

A few minutes later the food turns up.

"One salad and one cheeseburger. Will that be all?"
Obscurejones

Yep.
John tears into his burger.
Who

Off goes the waitress. Dawn digs into her salad.
Obscurejones

John keeps munching away a his burger.
Who

She finishes the salad, and look it's conveniently dark outside.

"Ready when you are."
Obscurejones

He smiles and hurls his knife at the register.
Ready.
The knife ignites as it flies.
Who

It embeds itself in the cash register, the cafe's patrons dive under there tables. Dawn's not really sure what to think...
Obscurejones

When it embeds it should explode with a loud pop and a burst of flame, before flying back into his hand.
It's not about making money, it's about taking money.
He smiles and makes for the door.
Who

Dawn follows him, walking into an alley.
Obscurejones

He flips his dagger into his coat and follows her.
Who

"Okay....now we need to get a boat."

She heads through the alley and on to a different street heading for the docks. Attempting to take John's hand as she does so.
Obscurejones

He takes it and starts whistling again.
Who

Good, physically contact, she starts trying to subtly look through his mind, trying to see why he's acting so un-John like.
Obscurejones

She'll find blocks going up quickly.  The blocks are a wall of muppets.
Who

Which muppets?
Obscurejones

Mahna Mahna.
Who

Okay...little cause for concern still she can always whack him in the head if she needs to.

"I'll go rent a boat. Don't hit anyone."
Obscurejones

He hums the mahna mahna song.
Who

"Okay, change of plan. Just follow my lead."
Obscurejones

He follows and starts singing the song to himself.
Who

"You're back."

"Yeah I just had to get some money off my boyfriend."

She gestures to John, she's just waiting for the boat rental guy to turn his back.
Obscurejones

John nods and does a little jig.
Who

"Okay, just let me get the register."

As he turns his back, Dawn clubs him.

"Run."

And legs it to a boat.
Obscurejones

John casually flicks his knife into the man's back and back into his hand.  That done, he strolls after her.
Who

Dawn's in a boat, staring at the controls.

"You know how this works?"
Obscurejones

John nods and kicks the lower console.
Who

"Great. Off we go."

And off the indeed go, heading towards Arkham Asylum.
Obscurejones

John switches songs to "Sweet Transvestite" and enjoys the boat ride.
