This story was SO good, you managed to capture a child's inocence and Jokers personality and morals so damn well. I tip my hat to you, author.

Okay, I loved this. It was so hard to put the story down! I really appreciated the fact that you kept the Joker as much in character as possible through his relationship with Taylor, I always feel perplexed and confused when people smooth him out and change many things about him just to suit their needs and fantasies (even though I can understand why, at times...). It's a weird balance you've found for them and I'm here for it! There's an old video of Heath Ledger where you see him goofing around with a little girl on a movie set (not The Dark Knight), it's very endearing and the image always popped in my mind in the calmer moments between the two...

Taylor was exhilarated by the trick and bashfully tried to hide her growing smile. "How did you do that?"

He smiled back at her, his eyes warm and full of amusement. "It's magic," the Joker heard him whisper.


If the Joker would have known that Taylor was so easily pleased by magic tricks, he would have shown her a few of his own. All he needed was a pencil.

I snorted so hard at that it was probably illegal.
Oh, and dark. Like, really, really dark.

I have been reading this story all night! You truly have a way with words. And when i realised i was on the last line of the last chapter i nearly started crying. I NEED more!

Gonna start reading the sequel right away. I am truly captivated. (Sorry for my halfbad english, love from Sweden!)

I can't with this chapter. The joker's inner musings are so entertaining, and the underlying creepiness when he thinks about how cute she looks while she's literally terrified is so chilling the more you dwell on it. Even while he's angry, too. Also. The end of this chapter gets me every time, poor baby Taylor! she's so precious I can't even stand it, I get so proud of her when she kicks Mr. Clownman lmao like get him girl! Wonderful chap

Oh wow. Going back and re reading is even more intense, this moment where he sees her injuries and has to ask her where they came from. Poor little one! My heart breaks for her and it's so heartbreaking because abuse is so common, things like this happen to children all the time. For her to end up being found by the mass murderer the Joker and even he gets moved by her fearful reaction to the spill and is feeling for her really says something about how different two evils can be. Someone who causes so much pain and bruises yet seeing the effects of child abuse still gives a particular gut punch, even to him. It's depraved on a different level, and speaks to how already, even in just one of their first real interactions, Taylor is getting under his skin and pulling emotion and empathy from someone who has NONE of that usually. I also think you made his response perfect, knowing he wouldn't feed her bullshit like 'it's going to get better' or anything like that. Heartbreaking but beautiful chapter

The atmospheric language you use in this first chapter is what really stuck with with me for years after reading. I can smell the dusty air, I can feel the floor underneath my feet. I think it's so magical reading something that transports the reader as vividly as your works do. Also, their first interaction is so intense, as someone looking into the situation all I wanted to do was pick Taylor up and run far away with her. To have to hold my breath and see what he might do to someone so defenseless and innocent kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. An iconic beginning to an epic storyline!

Beautiful and tragic. I just finished Arcane and despite being blonde I kept seeing Taylor as Powder in my mind. Really enjoyed this. Sorry I’m late to the party.

What a story, at just the first chapter, I was invested in it immediately. It remains realistic to Joker’s character which is not what many authors manage to get right, I’m glad I found you.

I'm re-reading this. Because, why not? Why not return to my roots, your roots - hell, this fandom's roots?

And within minutes of Taylor's introduction, I'm reminded why I was so invested from the get-go. Her and her big green eyes, and her cautious innocence, and her love and care for Teddy. :') I'm so excited to read this with little memory of all the ins and outs, so ready to refresh my knowledge of one of the few OCs (or perhaps the only) that I'd genuinely like to meet.

I'm sorry my communication has been poor and nonexistent as of late, life has not been kind, but I just wanted to let you know I do think of you and wonder how you are. :)

Take care and speak soon, xo

a great ending. stays true to how the joker would react.
sweetcga chapter 18 . 9/21/2020
i hope taylor becomes stronger and more independent as a teenager. i just always love strong female oc's in fanfics. its hard for me to read female oc's who are always crying or scared 24/7. It would be cute if she dyed her hair like harley's sorta but in a way that doesn't show her as a replacement of her, ya know?
