Requested by @ariyachiii: “I was wondering if you could do a joker x reader where reader is a new psychiatrist in Arkham and became a good friend of Harley. She’s handling diff. patient but one day she had to take care of Joker. Mr. J immediately likes her. And plans to take her with him. You can end it whatever you like. :DDD Hope you don’t mind.”
A/N: I’m sorry for how long it’s been taken me to do this. I’m the worst person alive. Anyway, I hope you guys like this!!
Warnings: Mentions of torture, blood, bloody bat, Joker being Joker.
‘Arkham Asylum, home for the criminally insane.’
You couldn’t have found a better place to apply? A children’s hospital probably would of been better place for you to start off your career but your heart had always pointed to disorders of the mind, the deadly kind. Not to mention that you never really had the temperament or patience to treat children. So here you were, two weeks into your new job in this big old mental instate.
its so hard to pretend im happy or in a good mood so i dont make things worse
But making me feel everyones bad mood is such an extra bad feeling to carry honestly
Like yea life sucks i know but can we at least pretend were fine so im not sad 25/7
And trust me just because i “look happy” it doesnt mean i am im just trying very hard to be the backbone of this mess
I’d like to thank The Bright Sessions for proving, in Dr Bright, that you don’t have to be a Doug Eiffel style slacker to be deeply self loathing. You can be a high functioning, successful professional and still believe that everyone would hate you if they knew the real you. Still act in ways to make that a self fulfilling prophecy.
Most media doesn’t acknowledge that success has no bearing on your inner life, and it’s such an important message.
Their Importance: Sam really struggles with survivor’s guilt in a real way and she suffers from panic attacks. Seeing her work through her struggles with her disorder through therapy and gain control of herself is very helpful and played a role in inspiring me to get help for my own mental health issues.
