Just as I promised, here's part two!
Chapter 2: Got-HAM!
Two entangled bodies lay in a heap in the middle of the National Bank of Gotham, having crashed through the sky light from a high position. One was Batgirl, aka Barbara Gordon. The other was also Batgirl, aka Barbara Gordon.
And if that didn’t sound right to you, then you’ll probably be the only one who bats an eye at such weirdness.
Slowly, the two dominoed dare dolls (that’s actually a thing, so look it up) rose to their feet, stunned, but not anywhere near defeated.
“Ha! I’ve caught you red handed Batgirl!” One of them said. “Surrender, and I might go easy on you!”
“Ha! That’s a laugh!” The other countered. “You’re the one who’s finally been caught! You turn yourself in, or you know what happens next!”
They circled each other, like lionesses stalking their prey, each knowing she was in for another in a long series of fierce battles. They’d danced this dance many times before, but had yet to reach a proper conclusion, at least from their point of view.
The world had changed: a wave of dimensional energy had caused this, splitting Batgirl in two and creating a world where it had always been that way, with both of them convinced the other was a super criminal that only she could capture. As for everyone else…
“OH NO! IT’S D’EM BATTLING BATGIRLS!”
“GET EM BEFORE DEY TAKES US ALL OUT!”
…they just thought that’s how the Batgirls did things. The actual bank robbers came out, drawn by the noise of the super heroines entrance, but were too late to prevent what would happen next.
“HIYAH!” Batgirl and Batgirl leapt at each other at the same time the bank robbers descended on them.
Batgirl took a swing at Batgirl, and both women nailed each other in a cross counter, fists crashing against jaws.
As they stumbled back, two thugs who’d been approaching them (without guns for some reason) tried to grab both girls from behind, but the two women both reeled back to attack each other again and ended up elbowing the men in the face.
They then promptly punched each other again, this time the stomach.
Batgirl went for a high kick to Batgirl’s face, but Batgirl dodged at the last moment, and the kick caught another poor mook in the side of the head.
As she followed through on her kick, her opponent attempted a kick of her own, but Batgirl was able to avoid it…
…but the goon coming at her from the side didn’t.
And so it went; the Batgirls fought each other to a standstill, while the bank robbers were utterly demolished in the process, as their attempts to put down both do gooders only resulted in them getting caught in the cross fire of the super heroine battle.
After a good 10 minutes of fighting, the Batgirls had managed to put down most of the thugs. Two were currently fleeing, unnoticed by the two heroines as they prepared batarangs for each other.
“Try this on for size you hellacious hussy!” They flung their batarangs at the other, but both women ducked, and the projectiles continued on to strike the fleeing thugs in the backs of their heads. “Hah! you missed!”
The batarangs then curved (as boomerangs are wont to do) and struck both Batgirls in their heads.
“Ugggh!” They both pitched forward towards each other, crashing together again with another collision of skull on skull and breast on breast. Immediately and instinctively, they brought a knee up between the legs of her assailant.
“OOOOOOGH!” That didn’t feel good, but despite the pain, they punched each other in the jaw again, while still practically clinching. Even as the sirens blared and the police drew close, the two women began trading punches to tits and faces, and kicks to stomachs and groins as they stumbled out of the main hall of the bank.
) GET AWAY (VRONK!!!
) THIS TIME!!!” Not letting up on each other, Batgirl and Batgirl fought their way right out of the museum.

“You scum will be going away for a long time.” Commissioner Gordon commented as he watched the bank robbers get carted away.
“We’d have gotten away with it if not for those two catfighting dames!” One thug yelled out in fury! He then got clubbed over the head and pushed into the police wagon.
“Indeed!” The Commissioner agreed. “Thanks to the Batgirls, justice has once again prevailed.

As for the Batgirls….
The scene was identical, even if the subjects were separated. Batgirl woke up, battered and bruised in an alley, her twin nowhere to be seen.
“…no…not again…” As she pulled herself to her feet, she looked at her costume; it was torn and ruined. “She escaped again!”
Batgirl pressed a button on her belt, and a signal went out, summoning her Batgirl cycle. It would arrive in a few minutes, leaving her time to think on the current situation.
‘Dammit! I failed to capture her again! She’s too damned good!
’ The night hadn’t been a total waste however. That bank robbery had been foiled, so whatever devious plan Batgirl had been formulating had been derailed a tiny bit. It wasn’t much, but with the aches and pains she was suffering, it was better than nothing.
She was brought out of her thoughts as her cycle pulled into the alley. She reached into the compartment for her helmet and put it on, riding off.

About an hour later, Barbara Gordon had pulled into her secret lair under her apartment, and stripped off her ruined Batgirl costume. A few bandages and some iodine later, she was all patched up.
“Well, time to head upstairs.” She said to herself, and with that, she pressed a switch on a nearby wall, opening up a stair case to her apartment.
Soon she was back in her home, ready for a good nights rest…provided she didn’t run into her room mate that is. Suddenly she heard a noise.
‘That must be her. I was hoping to avoid her.
“Barbara?!” A voice (similar to her own) called out. “Is that you!?”
“Yes it’s me!” Barbara replied. “I just got back!”
“Oh! What a coincidence! So did I!”
Barbara Gordon rounded the corner and came face to face with another woman, with a face identical to her own.
“How are you Barbara?”
“Just fine Barbara? How was your night?”
“Eventful. And you?”
The two women hugged in greeting, utterly oblivious to who was in front of them.
Heh. In case you were all wondering, I actually looked up authentic 60's Batman sound effects for this. Gotta be accurate and all.
Alright. I'll see all of you, same bat place, same bat time.
