Love your song-inspired title choice this chapter! Is it strange that, whenever I think about torture by jumper cables, my mind skips right over action movies and goes to that one episode of Criminal Minds *shiver*. Yeah, death would probably be more fun than those cables. Great chapter! Lots of action. And I love how they've "partnered," at least for the moment. I can't wait for more :D

GREAT job so far!
Seriously, I find this fic fascinating, and can't wait to see more! Which is actually a bit of a surprise for me, since Dawn normally isn't a character I care for at all. But the way you write her-responsible/desperate/but-still-Dawn-is really appealing.
Not to mention pairing her with Dick! :-D
Love! Love! Love!
*pouts* Though I REALLY, REALLY want to see what happens next. This is one of those fics where I actually care about seeing it through to the end, so I REALLY hope you won't abandon it.
If your stuck and want any help at all, please let me know. I've thought up all sorts of ideas, and would be happy to help.
Anyway, thanks again!
I hesitate to type this, since I don't want to annoy you, but the sentiment is honest, so I'll risk it: PLEASE UPDATE A.S.A.P.!
And a belated congrats on winning the Twisting the Hellmouth challenge!
Bye for now!

Great chapter! Poor confused Nightwing-Oh, and once Batman's on your trail...yeah, hope you didn't leave any new diaries laying about Dawnie, bc the Bat will find them. And your little dog, too. LOL. Sorry, I'm obviously out of it. Anyhow, that last line literally forced a squee from my lips. I adore Harley. So happy she's got a cameo coming up.

Torture and a gender switch-Trish, my dear, you're spoiling us. :D Great chapter! I absolutely loved every minute. I swear, if I was being smacked with a rubber chicken, I'd probably have crumbled to hysterical laughing by now, not poison necessary, lol.

Oh, I really liked the explanation for why they can't track her-very good thinking :) And I loved that Giles was like "I have no idea what you're talking about-crap, never mind..." lol. Makes sense that the supernatural world would be having wayyy too much fun with Buffy benched. Great chapter. I can't wait for more. And, as I'm sure many of your other readers have noted, can't wait to see what Dawn and the Joker have gotten up to. Those crazy kids.

GAAAAH! Please please update!

Ooh, very interesting so far.
Though, the escort thing didn't honestly make sense. Weren't all of the prisoners escorted by multiple guards AND orderlies earlier? 'Cause if there's one in-mate they'd never let that slide with, it'd have to be The Joker.
But it served its purpose.
Who will come to Dawn's rescue? The Scoobies or the Bat Family?
Now that Dawn's picture is kind of in the news, the Scoobies could catch wind of it. But, I guess The Joker breaking out of Arkham AGAIN might not be considered world news. Of course, I now have this image of a snippet appearing on the news while Buffy (and maybe the other Scoobies are watching). It'd catch their interest since the Joker's Buffy's supposed cure and I can just see Buffy leaping up as she recognized Dawn...and of course this happpened on a Tuesday, right?
And, if the Bat Family starts digging into Dawn's past, they're going to find out very quickly that 'Winters' isn't her last name. They know where she lives and that her 'uncle' got the apartment for her, so they could look into Giles that way. And they might put up some of the Council's red-flags while doing it...
Anyway, great job so far. Can't wait to see what comes next!

Amazing! When I found the new chapter, I screamed, XD. Okay, I completely love this. I was filled with such apprehension! You are a fabulous author. I can't wait to see what happens next!

I wonder if little portals will start opening? Next up, will any slayer anywhere see the video & recognize Dawn? That could make things interesting if a slayer squad shows up in Gotham. or at least Faith and/or Spike.
Meanwhile Batman's doing a full background check on her and coming up with nothing, maybe? Though with his resources, using facial recognition software, maybe he'd find something?
Now all that's needed is for a huge group of Knights of Byzantium to show up.
