Ah, poor Eddie; his curiosity is going to get him killed someday. XD Lovely characterizations, especially on the ever-entertaining Miss Harley Quinn. The matter about her patterns of speech is a particularly nice touch.

If I didn't already know that it was Eddie speaking
I'd swear it was ! would be my guess
that Harley plays up the 'ditzy blonde' act most with her
Puddin,so that he would underestimate her!
So did Harley win the prize?:)

Excellent observations of Harley here. I definitely agree that she plays up the bimbo persona depending on who she's with and is far more calculating than most give her credit for. You may have seen me rave about her using it as a strategy to have others underestimate her in various places. It's really nice to see it directly addressed here. I thought the beginning was very fun and entertaining but didn't seem to lead quite smoothly into Eddie's observations. Though it definitely follows the right path - have her being the goof, him frustrated, then catch her doing a puzzle - maybe just a quick edit to make the intro more compact would benefit it.
It really picked up with Eddie's observations, though I feel the end would be stronger if Harley didn't acknowledge what Eddie says to be true - if she'd said something like "I don't know what you're talking about, really!" with a sly smile to him, it would've been punchier. The ending also seems to trail off a bit.
All in all, excellent fic!

Puzzling, twelve letters...lemme guess, is it Harleen Quinn? :)
I particularly like what you've done with Harley in this one-she certainly must have something that attracts the Joker's notice, even if it is spotty. The glimpse you give us here hints at that something quite nicely.
You have a few minor grammatical or punctuation mistakes, especially toward the end, but it's nothing a beta (or just a once-over on your own) can't easily fix.
My favorite of the new stories so far. Now off to the other two...
