Fear is the hand that pulls your strings.


Reading order for the Clockwork series:

1. Clockwork (complete)

2. Blackout (in progress)

3. JK (complete -- alternative universe sequel to Clockwork)

4. Burn (in progress -- alternative universe sequel to JK)


Clockwork: The Joker stumbles into an abandoned apartment complex and finds a four-year old girl who unwittingly gets tangled in the intricate webs of his master plan. Complete.
Blackout: Official sequel to Clockwork, a timeline where JK and Burn do not exist. Follows Taylor as an adult, who has managed to suppress her memories of what transpired during the traumatic events of Clockwork and has erased the Joker from her mind completely. She is holding down a job and her marriage, but her old demons return to drag her back to what she once knew, and through a series of events she is thrust once again back into the Joker’s hands, and this time he’s not letting go. In-progress.
JK: After eleven years of separation, the Joker decides to track down the little girl he had once planned to kill – who is now fifteen – finding her deeply entrenched within the foster care system. After reuniting, they embark on a journey steeped in manipulation, careening towards an act of revenge that cannot be undone. Complete.
Burn: An AU glimpse of what could’ve been if JK had ended differently. Now sixteen, ripped out of foster care, and pinned carefully under the Joker’s thumb, Taylor navigates the next several years of her life while ensnared in a devastating codependent relationship with the man who single-handedly destroyed her life. In-progress.
