Story Notes:
This is my version of Harley Quinn's creation. I know there are countless interpretations of this, but if I've added my own twists to the story. Very occasionally, I will write a chapter from the Joker's point of view, but otherwise it's all Harley. This is my favorite storyline to write about; I hope you enjoy!

The characters and basic plot are not mine. I'm not making any money out of this, so if you're looking for a chance to sue me, look elsewhere.

1. Chapter 1: Prologue by xephyrr [Reviews - 4] (547 words)
This is basically a look at Harleen Quinzel from the point of view of an outsider. Enjoy!

2. Chapter 2: The Rose by xephyrr [Reviews - 2] (847 words)

3. Chapter 3: The Joker's Doctor by xephyrr [Reviews - 0] (458 words)
This is from the Joker's point of view. There will only be a few of these chapters throughout the story, but I do feel they're necessary. Dialogue is from Mad Love, with a few of my own twists.

4. Chapter 4: Hesitation by xephyrr [Reviews - 0] (444 words)

5. Chapter 5: The Mime by xephyrr [Reviews - 0] (1519 words)
I just don't think that Arkham would let Harley have the Joker without proving herself first, no matter how long she waited. Information on the Mime was limited, so please tell me if I've gotten anything wrong.

11. Chapter 11: The Clowns by xephyrr [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (933 words)
Here it is, the famous session between them, as seen in Mad Love (which I don't own). I kind of put it in my own words for the purposes of this chapter. Reviews are appreciated!
