This account is based off of The Dark Knight Rises, as well as off the Batman mythos as created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane. I don't own anything to do with the films and comics -- or their respective media couterparts. I'm not affiliated with Anne Hathaway, either. While I follow the Nolanverse films strictly, the comics, video games, and other media appearances have played a heavy part in the character's backstory and in roleplay interactions.
For those wondering what 'the original' implies above, I was the first active Nolanverse Selina Kyle on tumblr, twitter, and various other social media platforms, and I created a lot of my material prior to the film's release (though I continue to adapt to fit the canon). It may not affect any of you, but it is important to me.
NOTE: this blog is completely ic, with very few exceptions. For ooc posts, references, resources, etc., please visit this sideblog. For alternate universes, please visit this sideblog. ON THEMES: this theme was created by me, for me. I have themes available publicly at mcavoyjamesthemes. I do make exclusive themes on commission; if you'd like one, please message me so we can talk it over.
read the rules & the dossier / history. interactions that contradict my info will be dropped, but i will reach out to you first.
mun / muse are 18+. no smutting with minors. all nsfw material (sexual or other) will be tagged.
singleverse / singleship, currently shipped with wesley gibson. one night stands may occur outside of the ship, but it is unlikely. see flexibilis for aus.
all writing formats & images are welcome. i may be slow due to real life, but i will attempt to get to everyone in a timely manner.
i don't follow everyone back. if we interact, i will, and if i follow you, i'm interested in interacting. my blog is open to mutuals and non-mutuals as well, so please don't be shy.
ic =/= ooc. additional note; i sometimes make psas about rp / general etiquette in order to smooth the experience for everyone. these are not to be confused with ooc issues. please don't mistake them.
ooc posts on here are very, very limited. i like to keep this as in character as possible. please use the tags to see my comments.
all gifcons & icons are my own. do not take them. fan art credit here.
plagiarism will not be tolerated. i'll approach you nicely the first time. if it persists, i'll take further action. you've been warned. more here.
completely oc- and panfandom-friendly, but i am unfortunately unable to write with oc children of selina's or bruce's at this time.
please don't reference other selinas when writing with me. there are a few minor exceptions, but you already know who you are.
please message me, tag me, respond to an open post, or hit 'like' on starter request posts to get something started with me.
this account is nolanverse, but draws heavily from comics, video games, etc. in its backstories and, oftentimes, in plots. as a result, i'm fairly easy to write with, regardless of what fandom your character is from. important: if you are a comicverse dc character, though, please don't assume your character knows my selina just because s/he/they might in the comics. if you want your character to know mine in advance, please message me first!
Selina was given the Clean Slate program, but did not use it immeidately, due to an inability to let go of her identity and past. She used it less than one year after the events of The Dark Knight Rises during Arc: Lion Trap.
Selina and Bruce spent around eight months out of the country, before a mutual split. After this time, they both returned to Gotham. Their relationship is still complicated, but there are lingering feelings.
Currently, she resides in Old Town (within the East End, Narrows County of Gotham City). Holly Robinson (alias: Jen Rathmore) occasionally comes to live with her for prolonged periods of time.
Story-wise, Selina has been arrested several times, and her identity has been in the papers. That having been said, her persona as "The Cat" is much better known than she is herself, which is what allows her to slip by unnoticed and in disguise. She has only recently used the Clean Slate. This means that any public records (including police records) are 100% gone. You may know of The Cat, but unless you've seen her up close (that mask doesn't hide much, honestly) or happen to have the hard copies of the papers or her records, you probably won't know who she is.

WARNING. SELINA KYLE IS KNOWN TO BE HIGHLY DANGEROUS AND HIGHLY SKILLED. LIKELY ARMED. APPROACH WITH CAUTION.
i have an extremely overloaded schedule. that, combined with the way the rp sphere has been lately, has made roleplaying a little more than stressful -- and not as fun as it's supposed to be. i do this for fun, and so i need to take a step back and focus on only a few threads at a time as i clean this blog out and get back to feeling positive about being online. during this time, i may also be transitioning into a semi-selective mindset, and i will also not be taking on new threads until i feel comfortable. thank you for reading, and feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions.
