[Nessie isn't surprised that there wasn't a lot of turnout for this "Be a Big Sibling" sign up event. Although everyone in Gotham City knows that crime affects the children of the city, there aren't a lot of people willing to help fix that.]

[Of course, the stringent background check required for it might also scare some people off.]

[She hands off a copy of the brochure and says,] "I hope you'll consider being a Big Sibling for one of our foster kids in need! They could use more good influences in their lives."

[The woman smiles at her, and moves on to Nessie's boss for the presentation.]

[Nessie hears another person step up to her table. She holds up another brochure, and says again,] "I hope you'll consider being a Big Sibling for one of our needy foster kids!"

Weellll... [And oh, this is a terrible idea, but he can't seem to resist. There's more ways to do good than just punching people in the head, after all, and as busy as he is, it's not like there's not a glut of other heroes to help pick up some weekend slack.] Do you think maybe some... positive media coverage might help? Say, if one of 'those Wayne kids' volunteered for the program?

[... welp. In for a penny... he guesses he's committed now. Raising his voice a little for the cameras, he says,] I'd love to! I'm an adoptee, after all - I know how important it is for foster kids to have a good influence in their lives! [Ham, meet cheese...]

[Dick obligingly fills out the forms and walks away, pleased to see the turnout in his wake. He decides to clear the area for a bit, not wanting to be caught up in the crowd, but he does return to speak with Nessie one-on-one as she's packing up.]

Well, I think that went pretty well! [He glances at his phone and mock-winces.] I think it's already trending on Chirper, actually.

How many new sign-ups did you get?

Wow. Hopefully just the beginning...

[At Nessie's follow-up statement, he laughs and scratches the back of his neck.] Well, I could have used a little more warning, but it's not like I didn't as much as suggest it. Besides, someone should get to take advantage of my celebrity - it might as well be you and the kids who need it.

[After a moment, he ventures-] Do you have anything pressing once you're packed up here? Would you be interested getting some strictly platonic coffee and chatting a little more about your program?

[Dick tries not to crack up at "I might have to dash out" - he's not used to being on this end of that caveat.] That sounds perfect! I know this little shop a few blocks over - much better than the Sundollar stuff. [He gestures.] Shall we?
