Wonderful begining:) and yeah some of those stories do have no plot, bad grammar and so on lol tis a shame that the authors who try a scarecrow/oc story don't get him portrayed as he is.
| Yuki Hikari 2/12/10 . chapter 2
Oh yes, this is awesome! I completely agree with you on the Scarecrow/OC stories. I don't think I've found one I truly enjoyed yet. But yours is doing a fantastic job so far! :D

Night Monkey, I am afraid we have a problem here. I've been reading through some of your reviews and I can't help but notice that your "cabbie driver" has been mentioned more times than your OC.
Basically, what I am trying to say here is that everyone will probably stop reading this story if you kill him.
So do us all a favor and DON'T. ;)
Seriously though, this was a great chapter. I am so charmed by your cabbie driver and his dialogue. It amuses me to no end. Especially his thoughts about the toilet . . . wow, that probably sounded a lot dirtier than it was intended to be, but you know what I am talking about.
I have to say one of my favorite moments in this chapter was when Scarecrow fired the gun and then Danielle went about patting herself down to see if he had shot her because she was in too much shock to actually feel if he had. That just seemed really realistic but it was also kind of funny - but still a bit nerve-wracking at the same time. Geez, how are you able to convey so many varying emotions in one scene!
I also really liked the part where Danielle said "“Please don’t antagonize him anymore!” I was honestly hoping she would say that because as much as I love the cabbie driver, he was going to get them both killed if he had kept running his mouth.
Anyway, I’m eager for the next chapter because I want to know what is going to happen when they finally get out of the cab. Should be . . . interesting. ;)

For some reason I found Scarecrow’s casual statement regarding the bum they’re about to meet and his order of "Honk the horn at him" hilarious. His voice is absolutely spot-on.
And yes, I share your pain. OC romances never end well(or begin, or anything in between). I suppose there’s a bright side to Riddler’s obscurity: Even if stories with him are few, at least there aren’t too many romance stories with him.

“I wouldn’t exactly call poisoning a bunch of lower class families an ‘accomplishment’. That’s kind of like beating up an old man and being proud of it."
That's exactly how I felt when he poisoned the Narrows. As much as Scarecrow is my favorite villian, I can't really appreciate his "experiment" at the end of Batman Begins. Oh, and his statement toward Danielle's sore legs was so in character, great job:) Please, don't kill the cabbie! He's the best:)

I have to say i applade you, you have created an OC stroy that I don' want to burn, I normally despise anything OC related and will not or physically can not read past the summary. Thank you.
Keep going please.

I am loving your story so far. It is such a relief, I can actually imagine Dr. Crane/Scarecrow doing all of this. Great job, and I'll be tuning in for the next chapter :]
| PiraBats3 2/10/10 . chapter 2
To elaborate, I suppose, you're great with capturing Crane. Amazingly, marvelously, stupendously great. (And there are a lot more adjectives where those came from.)
And I'd have to agree with everyone else-I love the cabbie. I'm going to be pretty depressed when he dies.
Oh, and I loved the musical toilet. Nearly choked on my drink when I read that.
Once more: Huzzah!

This? Is exactly what I needed to cheer me up while my computer's all not working due to spyware. The line about Ode to Joy had me fighting back the urge to disturb everyone in the computer lab by laughing like a lunatic.
Words cannot describe how much I love your Scarecrow. His voice is absolutely perfect. The bit about the destitute being good research was brilliant, as was his rant to Danielle about how Gotham isn't a nice place.
Much as I like the cab driver, Danielle was right to tell him off. Belittling the Scarecrow is the last thing you should do. Same goes for any Gotham rogue, actually, but Scarecrow in particular has the bullying issue to set him off.
I love how he asked Danielle if she was uncomfortable, and then turned that around to tell her off. It's just so Jonathan. And I felt bad for him, reading the part about the straitjacket. This is why I wouldn't last ten minutes in Gotham; I'd sympathize with the man holding me hostage.
| GiveTheDevilHisDue 2/9/10 . chapter 1
YES! Night Monkey, you have made my day:) I am so ** sick of Crane/OC fics. They just...bug me. A lot. This was actually really realistic, funny, and creative. The driver is by far my favorite, though. Plus, everything Jonathan said, especially while he was pointing the gun at the driver, was so realistic and in character.
| Lauralot 2/8/10 . chapter 1
Somebody had to take a stand. I do enjoy well-written OCs, and this fic is off to a great start.
I'm really liking Danielle. You've done a great job with her characterization. I've got a real sense of her personality, I think, and you never had to stop to tell the audience that she cares about her grandmother (which happens all too often in fics about OCs).
Speaking of which, I'm liking the cab driver too. It's great, seeing his change from friendly and conversational with Danielle to angry and defensive. And I love that he talks back to Scarecrow.
Speaking of Scarecrow, your voice for him is perfect. I could absolutely picture Cillian Murphy saying each of the lines you wrote for him, particularly the one about the gun and where he'd shoot the driver.
I love the idea that Jonathan continued to travel around Gotham on horseback after his initial rampage.
Can't wait to see where this goes.
| Guest 2/8/10 . chapter 1
Amen, Night Monkey! I like to browse around the recent fics page every so often, and some of the summaries /alone/ make me want to bang my head against a wall repeatedly. While the idea of an OC romance doesn't seem bad to me in theory, it'd be damn hard to execute without cliches or OOC behavior. Perfectly placed interns and Scarecrow with a heart of gold? Psh. He probably doesn't even have one of flesh and blood.
Anyway, the opening was fun and informative-Danielle is lucky to have found such a magnificent cabby! Your descriptions were zany, great for visualization, and amusing overall. It's interesting because while this doesn't fit tonally into Nolanverse, that doesn't strike me as a bad thing by a long shot. 'Plausibility' reads like a well-done parody or humor fic so far, though I'll have to see what happens given the adventure label. :-) Great job putting your own spin on things!
That said, if you'd like a respite from bad OC romance fics and are interested in trying a good one I would recommend 'Dark My Light' by Blodeuedd. The author took great care with characterization, respected cannon, and writes very well. It's also dark-allowing Dr. Crane be the twisted psychopath we all know and love.
Looking forward to seeing where you go with this!
| dreykar 2/7/10 . chapter 1
Great start. It's funny, another member on here and I were discussing the new batch of 'interesting' Scarecrow/OC's that seemed to have popped up over the last few weeks. By no means am I perfect but some of those stories, ah, yeah...
I liked that it has begun at such a face pace and it will be interesting to see where the cab ride will take them from here. I do feel a little sorry for Grandma Sophia though, hopefully her jazzercise will keep her suitably entertained for the evening.
I look forward to the next chapter!

Wow, I think your story might have some potential if the first half of the page wasn't just you ranting about how horrid everyone else is at writing about your beloved Scarecrow, my advice, get a life, eat a cookie, go dancing! Just cheer up a little jeez!
