The effect of having the Joker stand outside himself while he stands judgement on himself is amazing effect and coupled with Batman's warped logic - that epic drama in a flat monotone - the whole becomes completely perfect. I really enjoyed reading this.

that was so powerful it almost made me cry! :'( regardless, it was absolutely so well written and just- perfect :)

This was absolutely fantastic. I’ve read it twice since I discovered this link yesterday. This is such a powerful story you’ve shared. The flow of the writing is perfect, the imagery is vivid, and every character feels so real. Even the few paragraphs that Batman appears, you 100% feel the character. I just really enjoyed this story and I hope you are still writing because you are very, very talented. Thanks again for sharing. This is a definite favorite for me.

Most excellent. Joker with a conscience.
The interaction between him and Babs is great; between him and the Bat, even better. How wondrous that, in the end, they share the same dark morality.

Brilliant. Excellent work. Really well done.

Wow...jeez...wow. That was powerful. It's an interesting concept, and could have derailed into wangst, but you kept it in line wonderfully.

That was bleak in a good way :) It's quite unsettling to see how haunted he still is even though all he has to remember his old self by are vague flashbacks. Somehow he knows there's something wrong with him! Barbara's fear was very believable, too. And his attempts to put her at ease and apologise for his laughter were quite bittersweet.

Ep, that was very good, left me with the creeps too! He has almost an inkling of what he used to be, yet can't be quite certain about it. And as he tries gauging a reaction from others in his vicinity... And yikes, Batman's commentary in the end and him then agreeing to it, with what must've been bliss in his eyes.

This is just awesome - brilliant! So well-written. Hope to read more of your stuff!
| Naga chapter 1 . 8/29/2008
. I have nothing to say. That is so powerful and so unexpected. And the ending. Yeah. I have nothing.

I'm in awe.

This really is quite incredible. You've done some excellent work I must say. Normally I don't bother with the Batman section, but this is good work. Keep on updating.

Generally I come across "Pity-the-Joker" stories and feel disgust. From what I've read in the comics as well as seen in the cartoons (yes, I am one of the DCAU generation), the Joker is a character created primarily to be evil, and has no true purpose beyond that. He is a foil, and that is about it.
This story, though...it was a very sad, dramatic look at a man who was broken, forgotten and-greatest of all-guilty. It was a look at a guy who realized that he couldn't change his past and the future wasn't lookin' too hot, either.
You made a very real man, a very real voice and a very real situation. I appreciate that a lot. You provided peaceful closure for a character that I have loved to really hate for a long time.
That takes a lot of writing skill.
Thanks a lot. This was a very well done story.
