I know it's a weird title, and no, it is not about the real fantastic four! It's about the Joker, Cat woman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinne and Scarecrow. Rating just to be safe. Red eye crossover.

I know that some of the characters have different names than usual, but this is deliberate. This is the only way that I can make crossovers.
It was the middle of the night. Gotham was sleeping, including Arkham Asylum. The inmates were behind locked doors and the staff were working. All in all, everything was quiet.
Jonathan Crane, once psychologist (now psycho), was the only patient awake. He longed to be free from this prison. He longed to wear his burlap mask once again and he longed to strike fear into all that crossed his path. Outside of Arkham, he was more powerful than Falcone. Now, his only power was his thoughts. He had little in the way of company. He was kept in solitary; his only visitors were the police and the doctors. What he did get, though, was the sounds of the people outside of his cell. He would enjoy listening to their conversations. At this point in time, the favourite subject seemed to be that arsehole Batman.
But it wasn't Batman, per se. It was more about who his enemies were. With the Scarecrow gone, new threats were taking over Gotham City. The last that Crane heard was that four new criminals were working together. There was three women and one man; The Joker, Cat woman, Poison Ivy, and Harlequin. Jonathan, or rather Scarecrow, longed to be one of them. They seemed to have Gotham at their feet, something that had been his aim.
A man in a purple suit sat at a wooden desk. In front of him was a woman in red and black.
'Is everything set?' he asked her, cracking his knuckles.
'Yep, everythin', puddin' …' she said.
A week later, Crane was at a hearing. The judges were to decide if he should be in the asylum or in prison. Jonathan was in one of his suits and he had a new advocate. She was a pretty woman, reddy-brown hair, and pale skin. Her eyes were a precious emerald green. He noticed this because there was nothing else to do. He could only listen to the trial, never make any comments.
Suprisingly, Jonathan was allowed out of both hell-holes, and was allowed to come back to his former position at the asylum. Yes, the 'pretty little' advocate was one of the staff at Arkham. She was both a psychologist and a co-secretary. The real secretary had changed also. She was now a younger, (again) prettier lady. Her name was Cynthia Mayes. As for the advocate, her name was Lisa Reisert.
