| Frosty Autumn chapter 6 . 2/8
Not fair! NOT FAIR! D: I read this far only to find out that the story hasn't been updated in over three years? It can't stop here, it just can't! Please say you'll come back to finish this, it feels too exciting of an idea to just abandon.
I absolutely love the "ghost" angle. It's so unique, no one's ever done that before in a "suddenly sucked into Batman video game" story, and it's an original enough idea that not many people would have thought of it in the first place. You really set yourself apart from the others in this way, as most other stories just follow a very linear survive-the-game-for-real-this-time path. And then that's it, no effort to really to do anything else besides recreate the game, now only with a new character. But with the way that you did it, your character's in-game situation is unique enough that I really enjoy finding familiar places of the game through her eyes.
Another thing that I love is Melanie's realistic approach to problem solving! Not once did I chastise her in my head saying, "You idiot! Don't go in there/Why are doing that/Are you serious?!". I can't stand it when authors have their characters make incredibly stupid decisions just to make the plot go where they want with as little hassle as possible. Clearly they have no concept of self-preservation. But it's clear that Melanie does, and I love it!
I really like the details in the writing. It's not passive, it's all very in the moment and given time to be described. I can feel when Melanie's hurt, when she's scared, when she's crying. If you continue the story, I'd love for you to keep this up!
The only lesser thing that I'm a little critical about in this story is the romance subplot. I'm pretty iffy on it, I feel like it doesn't belong here, like it's an ill-fitting shoe but you're still trying it on anyway. The story simply as a survival adventure is fantastic, it totally works, and it's enough to carry the narrative all the way to the end. The romance angle feels like something that would bog it down a little bit.
I don't mean to sound at all cruel to your story, or what you had planned for it, I really am enjoying myself (greatly), but I don't feel at all excited about the promised romance part.
Now that I've said all that, you can throw this all away if you wish, because at the end of the day, this is your story. I'm no professional writer, just an amateur like most of us here, I just know what I like xD
Please say you'll continue this. I mean I know it's been a couple years already, it may be unlikely, interests change and perhaps you lost some steam along the way while writing, but I honestly hope you get that spark again soon. Until then, I happily await that alert telling me that Chapter 7 has been uploaded :D Take care

I'm sad to see that this hasn't been updated in a long time, but I genuinely find this to be my own personal dose of cocaine, and I hope to read more soon!

I. LOVE. This. Story. You've got to finish this!
| Tsuki Ai chapter 6 . 4/3/2013
Ahaha, Jonathon's a pervert! Well, sort of. And apparently NOT humble lol. Even though I always seem to enjoy Scarecrow and Mels' interactions, I can't wait for her to either meet up Batman or break out. :) I also hope that you update this story.. It's such a shame, it's so addicting and an awesome read, but it hasn't been updated for so long..
| Tsuki Ai chapter 5 . 4/3/2013
WOW. Finally! Even though I said she better not get caught by Scarecrow, I've been anticipating when she would meet him! I almost had goosebumps from reading that scene where Scarecrow corners her, but then I burst out laughing when she kicked him in the crotch. Pretty sure I haven't read that ever happening to Jonathon, lol.
| Tsuki Ai chapter 4 . 4/3/2013
Ugh.. creepy! Although, that's why I like the Batman series, and this story, because even though she's kind of going off on her own adventure, things are still realistic and intense. Haha, fangirling over the Riddler tape, I can actually picture that real well, 'cause I would probably do the same!
| Tsuki Ai chapter 3 . 4/3/2013
Okay, scratch what I said in the last review. She better hope that Scarecrow AND Croc don't get their hands on her... I don't know who's worse, actually. Lol, at least she was smart enough to book it out of there when Zsasz looked away for that moment!
| Tsuki Ai chapter 2 . 4/3/2013
fsjfbdjfnk. Oh god. Melanie better hope that Crane NEVER finds her.. He likes her screams, and now he knows she's actually not a ghost.. Phew!
| Tsuki Ai chapter 1 . 4/3/2013
Ooooh. This is sooo good. I try to find crossover stories all the time, but I rarely actually DO find them.. Only the first chapter and Melanie is getting in over her head! It's still funny though, how they think she's a ghost. XD And the Joker... "I've been hearing rumors of a "ghost" running around Arkham! I want her found and I don't know… exorcised or something." LOL.
