Gothic Baptism last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 10/05/18 08:33PM View full history

Selina Kyle continues the search for her missing sister. But the chase leads her to cross paths with the Dark Knight and leaves him wondering what side the Catwoman is on.

Stan arrives in the room where he has been keeping Sister Magdalene bound. He removes the tape from her mouth and speaks to her while opening a beer and then yells at her and pulls her hair for not responding.

Catwoman meanwhile breaks into a penthouse where she sneaks in on a woman bathing. She cuts the power and frightens the woman, demanding to know where her old pimp, Stan, is hiding out. The woman gives a series of possible addresses, including an old theater. Selina steals some jewelry and leaves.

Batman then walks among Stan’s old apartment searching for clues to Maggie’s whereabouts. He finds a cufflink and remembers it from his fight with Stan. He concludes that Stan has kidnapped Sister Magdalene as part of some vendetta.

In Selina and Holly’s apartment Holly answers the phone and hears Stan who asks for Selina Holly and Selina are unaware that they are being surveillance and have their phones tapped by Flannery and Frank Strunk . Selina then comes home and sees Holly on the phone with Stan who tells her he has Maggie the two bait each other into then Stan hangs up. Selina puts on her Catwoman costume and is about to head out Holly says that Selina doesn’t know where Stan is but Selina says she does Holly then tells Selina that what if Stan is setting her up.

Strunk then tells Flannery that they traced the phone call to a phone booth but he is now gone Flannery sees Selina leave the apartment in normal clothes then gets out to follow her. Flannery follows her and tells her they are going downtown. Selina refuses to answer Flannery’s questions he gets angry and says he doesn’t care about whatever personal war they have but does care when they involve a civilian. Selina then asks to go. As she leaves Flannery has other police officers following her in disguise to see if she leads them to Stan and Maggie. At some point she gets groceries and then turns to wave at two police letting them know she is aware of their plan. The two uniformed officers chase her into an alley only to see her gone up a fire escape.

In the theatre Stan then asks Maggie to eat some food but she says she doesn’t want any Stan then apparently breaks into tears crying asking for forgiveness from her. Maggie then says she forgives him then Stan looks up sinisterly and says she is a saint. He takes her up to the rafters of the theatre saying she just opened the doors to purgatory for him. As he compares Maggie to her sister, Catwoman makes her presence known on top of a higher rafter and says she will kill Stan he throws Maggie over the railing Catwoman jumps down beating Stan calling him a murderer she then hears Maggie and who has grabbed a ledge. She attempts to get to her but is further attacked by Stan he pulls out a switchblade telling her that he told Maggie they always play a game of cat and mouse. Catowman whips the knife out of his hand and scratches his other cheek while he is on his knees Selina moves over to reach Maggie’s hand Stan gets back and knock over Catwoman then stomps on Maggie’s hand Stan trips then falls over the railing the two fall but Maggie is caught by Batman and Stan snaps his neck dying on impact.

Selina looks over the railing and believes Maggie dead she looks over to see Maggie alive and puts together Batman saved her and says Stan didn’t deserve to live Maggie says she can’t decide that Catwoman annoyed by Maggie’s ways leaves through a window in the roof. Batman then tells Maggie he needs to know what is happening with Catwoman.
