Great job! Especially with the dialogue. I almost forgot I was reading a fanfic, it has such a comic book feel to me, which is perfect for this pairing. Anyway, bravo! You should be proud of yourself.

this was really good, and i just loved the ending, the most subtle actions always carry the largest meaning. keep writing!
| The real Joker chapter 1 . 4/1/2012
Your story was good. Not good, great. I'm happy somebody finally done it. A joker/batman psichi/philosophic mind fight.
But that khm " part" is a little bit too much. I know the Joker is in " love" with the Bats but not sexully so he doesn't want a kiss. But hey again great story
| Kraele and Bremon chapter 1 . 10/9/2010
That was awesome! You wrote them both really well! And such a tricky Joker to invent a bomb just to get Batman there. ;D Poor Joker not to get his kissy-kissy, though from the sounds of it, Batman wasn't entirely unaffected. I would like to try and write some fanfic for this pairing sometime, but I doubt I could pull off writing them in character. It would prolly be a mini-chapter story.
Anyway, great job and write more!

i liked it... i especially like that although it was Joker/Batsy it wasn't like gay sex porno nastiness. It was subtle... i like subtle fan-fics, i guess.

A great story. Very good.

My Lord. I can only hope you might plan to write more Batman/Joker fic in the future, because honestly I felt like it was all so spot on. It's sort of difficult to pin characters like these when they have so much varying history, but in my mind you have nailed their interactions so well. I love the Joker's submissive fawning over Batman, and then Batmans teasing, taunting is perfect, and creates such a great tension toward the end! I'm so glad you didn't give in and make it so easy for Joker to get what he so badly wants.
Anywho, you've probably already been recced a ton by now, but I always say you can't go wrong with The Killing Joke, especially for a bit of Batman/Joker interaction ;)
Anyway, do hope you write more in this fandom, your writing is too excellent to waste!

You wanna read some good Joker comics?
Killing Joke is a given, if you haven't read it yet. Batman and Joker spend a wonderful moment at the end. Also, look into Arkham Asylum: A Serious House On Serious Earth. It's a good one, too, although more villains than the Joker appear in it. I haven't read Man Who Laughs yet, though I plan on it soon. Heard it was a splendid Joker/Batman comic.
These aren't canon, but if you're just looking for some entertainment check out the Batman Confidential series. #7-12 contains a non-canon origin of the Joker where he becomes completely obsessed with Batman. I don't know if Mad Love counts as a Harley/Joker or a Batman/Joker (I think it's both in a way), but check that one out too. Strange Apparitions was all right - worth a read.
By the way...
I fucking loved this. I'm aware you wrote it five months ago, but I thought you deserve a review nonetheless.
I love the Dark Knight's Joker, but it's nice to skim through these fics and be reminded of the old Jokers. I'm not sure if this is what you were aiming for, but I was thinking of the Animated Series while reading. You have the childish behavior in his actions, and I loved this line:
“Up,” said the clown. “Up up up. Kiss me.”
You nailed the whole Joker character with that line alone. I'm not sure why - it just stuck out for me.
Anyhow, thanks for the read. Great work, and I hope you check those comcis out soon! :)

I LOVE THIS.
I absolutely adore the pairing, too. Batman and the Joker really do have a... unique relationship. And it's really hard to understand... but you've got it /down/! ;)
You also really understand the Joker's character - his mood swings, from childish to sadistic to whatever, and his insanity... and his clever little witticisms... -sigh-
I love this! It's so well-written, too, and... just... genius.
| Tera Earth chapter 1 . 8/24/2008
Wowza. Now thats one heck of a little story. You got them down perfectly, and I've only discovered this pairing as recently as Dark Knight. And Cartoon, comic or movie, they just fit together so well. Complete opposites, but essentially, they do complete one another. They do need one another. Love your story.
| Missah J chapter 1 . 8/22/2008
I only recently discovered this pairing (like, two days ago to be exact), but I find it so intriguing now that I just can't seem to get enough of it. ;)
Anyway, I loved this. A lot. :D An instant fave. This pairing, when badly written is horrifying to see on screen, but this was well written, and quite enjoyable.
So good job! .

Brilliant. You write these two so damn well. Must have more~!
