    Summary

    She tries smiling at the camera, but her smile grows strained, and she assumes that might come across as creepy and adjusts her face into a neutral expression, but that’s hard to do consciously, and she assumes that looks even creepier, and besides, he probably likes creepy smiles, given the reason she’s here and all.

    Harley arrives at Bruce Wayne's doorstep with a goal in mind.

    Summary

    Chad is shorter than she expected, and she’s taller than he clearly thought, so there’s an awkward pause at the doorway as she looks over his head and he looks down at her chin, his brow twitching slightly as they mentally adjust to being the same height. He’s wearing a trench coat, which he unbuttons but does not take off, and his clothes underneath are fitted and dark, bland yet expensive. Alexa has been wearing the same pajamas for three days now, and there’s an eviction notice stapled to her door. His palm is cool and dry in hers as they shake hands, his grip too firm. “It’s good to meet you,” Chad says. “Lovely place you have.” He glances around as she leads him into the living room at his gesture, his eyes landing on the dishes piled in the sink, the withered flowers on the counter, the blanket and pillow she has on the couch, crumpled from her sleeping there. The bed has become too large for just herself to fall asleep in.
    “Thank you,” she says, and wonders if she could actually kill him.

    Summary

    “Do you trust him?” Jim asked.

    “Yes,” said Batman, unhesitating.

    He didn’t know if he would ever like Red Hood. He didn’t know if he would ever be able to like working with him. He wanted to arrest the man. But if Batman trusted him, that would have to be enough for Jim.

    Jim Gordon's evolving perspective on Red Hood.

    Summary

    “Alfred?” Bruce is gazing at him, quietly pleading, his arm still wound around the monster’s waist.

    The ultimate insult.

    But this is Bruce. And for better or worse, he’ll always come first.

    Summary

    They call him a clown. It’s terribly funny and one hundred present awful all at once. This is Gotham’s sense of humour.
