Well, first things first, I'm certainly glad you seemed to enjoy this story and to enjoy writing it because as an author, that's the most important thing: enjoying what you're writing about.
Secondly, I can't honestly say that I enjoyed this. It was ... okay. Not terrible, but not perfect. I feel like you could have done so much more with this storyline but you didn't and so it felt a bit flat and incomplete.
The emotions weren't incredibly real and some of the dialogue was a bit stiff. And Bruce and Alfred seemed very out of character in some scenes. Especially Alfred. He would have told Bruce immediately about the Joker's visit. In fact, I doubt the Joker would have given Alfred a heads up at all. It's more in his character to just show up unannouced. Of course, I can see why you wrote it that way for the story, but it felt a bit off.
And Bruce wouldn't have been so calm when being faced with the Joker. He, at first, had no idea that Joker had guessed who he was. And so, he'd have tried to play it off like "Bruce Wayne the playboy, billionaire" would. Which would be, to act scared or shocked or something closer along those lines instead of just annoyed that the Joker showed up. Remember, the Joker is terrifying to the citizens of Gotham (with good reason) so Bruce would have to pretend he was scared as well, at least at first.
And I think you could have put more emphasis on Bruce's feelings when the Joker began to hint that he knew he was Batman. I mean, there should have been more reaction than what he had. Shock, denial, fear. Because really, if the Joker knew that Bruce Wayne was Batman, Bruce would be terrified of what he could do with that information. And I'm not just talking about spilling his secret, I'm talking about hurting the people he cares about, like Alfred.
The Joker, however, was done relatively well and his character seemed fairly spot on and once again, this was a GOOD story, but not GREAT. And I believe it could have been great.
I'm sorry if I seem a little overly-critcle. I honestly don't mean any of this rudely, it wasn't a bad story, but the potential seems to have been lost somewhere along the way. Decent attempt, but it needs some work.

OMG! That is a very cool story. I was impressed by the interaction of the character. The best line so far is the pencil trick. It made me laugh really hard. You have to update or I will cry so fucking hard...

Ah, yes, Christian Bale has been subjected to utter cuteness. I thank you dearly for that wonderful mental image in the beginning of the chapter. _

Good job. You should make a sequel after this! It was really an ingenuous story!
I wonder what would happen if The Joker wanted batman to stay out of something... using his secret against him...-hum-
Oh well! Good luck with your other story's!
