Okay, people get mad at me, but to me, these are the same character on different points of their timeline.
I talk about this a lot. The big iconic heroes, they have stories told at all points of their timeline; Jungle Tales of Tarzan and adult Tarzan, Young Conan and King Conan, Young Sherlock and mature Sherlock, etc.
I always think of Barbara as a character who starts as James Gordon’s daughter, becomes Batgirl, and eventually becomes Oracle. To me, it’s the same novel, different chapters.
And both are fun to write, it’s fun to write Barbara as young and inexperienced, and wonderful to write her as controlling the world from a chair in a tower.
I don’t really look at them as different.
Headcanon that after the battle of Hogwarts, George dyes his hair an outrageous colour, and at first Molly is mad, but then she hears George whisper “I kept thinking it was him in the mirror”.
