So I usually don't review until the very last chapter. But this is such an awesome piece I felt the need to review now and finish the story later.
So first off I like how you focus mostly on the psychological aspects of the relationship and less on the general actions outside the sessions. It's definetly a different take on the writing her origin story. I especially like how it's a slow progression, meaning she isn't falling into madness fast. Rather it's slow and subtle.
The way you portray Harley is also amazing. Most stories I've read seem to mix naive up with stupid. And I don't believe she's stupid by any means. She's just out of her league.
The Joker is also amazing and charmingly IC. Which is rare considering he's such a hard character to write. So I tip my hat to you for accomplishing such a feat. I'm enjoying the fact that you point out even then Harley seems to have an affect on him that others don't. Like the fact that he actually explained the joke to her is interesting because I can't see him doing that for many people. It probably doesn't seem worth it because so many people would just ignore it since there stuck in there own little worlds. Convinced that life has meaning.
But anyway I'm going to stop here before this turns into a rant. Can't wait to read the rest.

I loved the references to Jane Doe and Great White in this chapter! They aren't the Batman's most famous enemies, so it wasn't a reference that took the attention off the Joker, but just a steady reminder that this is in the mainstream DC Universe. I also very much enjoyed the story of the Iceberg Lounge. I also think this chapter has my favorite line so far in the whole story. "I have a type, Doc. The human type."

Have you ever watched 'The Joker Blogs' on YouTube? It is a viral series filmed like security tapes of Jokers' and Harley's sessions and her steady decline into madness. The series takes place after the events of 'The Dark Knight,' and the second season is coming out soon, and will be filmed cinematically. If you haven't watched it, I really think you would like it and highly suggest it to you. Your story reminds me a lot of it (but then again they have the same basic plot, but the depth and character development can be seen in both your story and the video series)

Joker's story got me! I didn't see that coming! He really pulled my leg there. Eventually in the Batman series I am currently writing, I would like to introduce Harley Quinn, but I don't see how I will ever be able to get anywhere near the dramatic seduction she undergoes in your series
| SuperBatWonder 4/30/13 . chapter 7
My two favorite things about this chapter: We learn that Joker doesn't know what worry is, and pain doesn't phase him! One suggestion: I don't know if it was meant to be an easter egg for Jason Todd when the guard said that Joker killed his friend Jason, but it did come out a little confusing, as Joker's murder of Jason Todd is one of his most infamous crimes, so one might assume the guard knew Jason was Robin and that he was killed by the Joker (if you understand what I'm saying).

I sincerely felt really bad for Joker during his apology! Good thing I'm not his doctor, or I would have been driven crazy by guilt right then!
| SuperBatWonder 4/29/13 . chapter 3
This is amazing how it tells about the way Joker has driven his own doctors into psychosis (not that these will be the last time, if this goes how I think it will). Joker reminds me a lot of Hannibal Lecter. I am as fascinated as Harley in your version of him!
| SuperBatWonder 4/29/13 . chapter 1
I love the great imagery you give in this short prologue. Imagery is something I have never been amazing or original with, as you may be able to tell in some of my stories. Also the descriptions of the doomed doctors is very interesting. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the story!

I love it you are awesome for telling their story this way. this is one of the best Harley and Joker fanfictions I have read. you are awesome
| Guest 12/17/12 . chapter 34
I've been working my way through each chapter and decided not to review it until the last chapter. I love what you have done! The way The Joker subtly gets Harley to reveal information about her self. I mostly love how it wasn't rush and each chapter it was a little more gradutal, it felt believale to me reading it because you almost don't notice how The Joker is weening his way into Harley's mind. I will be reading more of your fanfics in the future! Find me on twitter if you would like to reply LadyApocalypse x
