Well, that was amazing . . . . It was very sadistic and very, VERY twisted, but it was nonetheless amazing. Wow.

If I were a sadistic maniac who loved to torture low-life 'street scum' as pleasurable business, I would call this pure genius. .

Great back-story! This is a believable origin of Crane's Scarecrow persona, and you've really got his character down: The ambition, the 'professional' attitude and frustration, and the quiet glee he feels at being able to intimidate people like Eddie, the reward for all his effort. "Well, Crane thought, patting a careless hand on Eddie’s writhing shoulder, and exiting the room to the delightful sound of the bastard’s tortured screams. Perhaps business could mix with pleasure, too." So Crane. Also, "Some people needed /convincing/." Delightfully menacing. Thanks for writing and posting!

Ah! Love it, love it, love it!

Really gets under Crane's skin, and stays in the same tone as the batman 'story'. Completely plausible backstory.
P'tfami chapter 1 . 3/31/2008
Chilling - and well thought out.

Crane's on screen persona mixed a certain ambiguity in his demeanor and attitudes - a sort of gray area between right and wrong and I think you captured that in this fic. Hope to see more shots like these.

A bit too unoriginal in that it's basically summarizing from the movie...still, this shows a lot more promise, especially in your details about his thinking, than a lot of the other stories out there.
