Title: A bird in the hand
Fandom: DCU.
Rating: PG18, implied.
Warning: The chatlog that spawned this has a lot of lines that go like "NO. NONONONONO. NO."
Summary: There are many forms of obsession, and most of them end up badly.
Author Notes: AU, and I thank The Powers That Be for that. katarik first forbade me to write this, and then betaed. So you know: not her fault.



It was a big apartment, with room for cartwheeling and somersaults. But they were angry cartwheels and frustrated somersaults.

"'Go home, kid' he told me. Like I was some sort of... of... amateur or something! I have a title. I'm a professional! If you ask me, the man needs all the professional help he can get."

Robin jumped, twisted in the air, and fell on a wide bed.

"I come up with this wonderful suit, all camera-ready primary colors, and a great name and everything, and he just dismisses me! Alright, so I stole the design from those 'Flying Graysons' he saved last month. I look better in this that any stupid kid ever could."

Robin pouted and muttered, "Screw Batman. He didn't even want to have sex with me. I'll write my book on some other nut."

She turned and spoke to the man who had been waiting in her bed. "So you were right. Batman is a humorless prick. Studying somebody so boring wouldn't make me a famous psychologist. And I do love..." -Robin trailed a finger over pasty white skin- "a man with a sense of humor."

.finis.

I...er...um...

I think I'm going to go with "No! No! Nonononono! OMG! NO!" as my response.

(Yes, you should take that as a compliment, BTW.)

(Yes, you should take that as a compliment, BTW.) :) Thanks!

For what is worth, "NONONONO" and "OH CRAP" were my reaction when I came up with the idea.

I think so? Not as wrong as writing it, of course.

Oh dear. Just the thought of a crazy, Bat-trained Harley makes me shudder. (But I'm also strangely intrigued...)

Great story. Creepy, but great.

Yep, that's an scary thought.

(Also, what a beautiful icon!)

Possibly you have broken me, for I read this, and thought, "Hmm. Not as disturbing as the typical __marcelo fic."

*laughs* I know what you mean. I'm somewhat amused that a story that could be labelled Joker/Robin is at the same time somewhat harmless.

Once again you've written something so perfect that I'm amazed it hasn't been written before, but it really wouldn't work in the hands of anybody else.

*blushes* Awww. Thanks!

Although I wouldn't be surprised if Robin!Harley has already been written somewhere. She is, after all, somewhat of a counter-archetype.

Of the various ways you *could* have written Joker/Robin, this one is least damaging to my sanity, but AIGH AIGH AIGH.

*hugs you and RUNS AWAY*
