The village is silent, what would be a bustling small community of residents has turned somewhat sour as the air is tense with fear. Those who are keen and aware speak tales of two women with tones of red taking villagers in the night, others cry foul at the devils nearby to calm her minions as the gates stand bare.
The forest stirs all around with taunting voices, minor youkai being pushed from their dwelling much as the humans are being forcefully taken from theirs. Attention is drawn, and now you must make your move less all the villagers vanish from the town and the faith in Gensokyo sours to an all time low.
The devil of the scarlet mansion has a letter, its words taunt the kidnapping of her guards to be used as pawns. The puppeteer and her dolls scour nearby, looking for answers, worried of another who claims to be a puppet master. And the Crown Prince following her own interests and the sounds of desires amidst the forests, closes in on the source of it all.
Once a location is found, the prince will make her rounds for all to know. To inform of who is behind it all, where they are hiding, and the dangers and precautions you need to take.
Its time to unravel this web of lies.
Welcome to the ‘Villager Kidnapping Incident’ Part 2 Community RP Event.
Part 1 has come to close as both enough time and attention has been spread about those missing as well as my availability to proceed with this.
Right away something to note; This is a Touhou community RP event that encourages interaction and planning with other rpers. Open to all Touhou rpers and Touhou OCs/OC with a strong Touhou verse to go off of.
Part 1 of the event was a subtle spreading of information that villagers are being kidnapped, not killed, and taken somewhere unknown. A thank you to those who’ve help push the missing guards and villagers with the odds posts here and there during my away time. Really it means a lot.
Now how will Part 2 proceed and what do you need to know? First it’ll go like this.
Like and Reblog this post to show myself and other’s you’re interested and taking part in the event.
Those that like/reblog will get a thread from my Miko has she visits around to inform everyone what is happening in her attempt to stir people into action.
In that thread she’ll inform your muses of all needed information, so even if you’ve been out of the loop you’ll be able to become a part of the event. The main key thing is, your muse will be informed on the fact they need to find a partner to proceed with as no matter who your muse is, proceeding alone with result in game over. Its for the event so play along.
From the start of those threads it’ll be up to you to find someone to proceed with as partners, people may combo up as many times as they want.
Shortly after all the starters are posted, I will post ‘enemy info cards’ for what you have to face and plan around given full details on their strength and weaknesses of the duo individually and together. The puppeted duo Meiling and Nobunaga are a synergy perfect combo, so even in danmaku duels it’ll be impossible to beat alone. Again for the sake of the event, play with me as I know lots of touhous/muses are insanely strong.
Once you have your partner its time to plot, battle plan with your partner in thread or ooc how you’d separate the guards. Plot a plan to merely separate them, and send an ask with the plan and your partner. Should be easy! The direct combats/talks/saving will happen in part 3.
After a week or two, or once enough combo’s and partners have been submitted I’ll have Miko reveal the location and part 3 can commence.
Part 3 is sort of a choose your own ending ordeal. You can choose to end your muses story at their 1 on 1 with the guards, maybe you desire to save one of them over all else. Or maybe you want to punt the spider, in which case your end thread will be against Mao, or against their 1 guard and Mao one after another. Or maybe you don’t believe Miko and decided to go after another muse believing they are lying. Or maybe you don’t feel like a fight physically, but more mentally. Go for it! More details on that, but its a ‘be creative pick your end scene’ part 3.
Also know that its confirmed the kidnappers are Meiling(By Nue) and Nobunaga(By Marii.) Its confirmed that Mao is behind Meiling’s and Nobunaga’s kidnapping(By Alice) but its not confirmed if they’re kidnapping people under her control, instead its implied the belief is they’re doing it subconsciously. (But its obvious by now they’re being forcefully puppeted.)
Nobunaga’s attack Papiyas is a danger to all youkai/non-humans but Miko will deal with that spell’s ability should you properly partner up with another muse.
What if I don’t have time to take part in part 2 before it ends?
You can submit an ask to @crackedgates for an answer with Miko giving your muse all the information.
You can, if you’re a multi muse, submit your own two muses with a plan. Or alternatively plot OOC with another mun for your submission, no need to thread it all.
Everything Event wise can be asked about on @diaphanous-puppetry and everything IC wise can be asked on @crackedgates to Miko. As all all incident posts will be found here. or just by clicking ‘Current Incident’ on Mao’s blog.
So what else is there to know?
Please tag all your event related posts and commentary with ‘maonapping’ so I can track and peer into what people are doing.
Don’t feel shy to ask me anything you need, or if you need help.
Don’t feel shy to try and mess and lie to other’s, if you want to be a villain too then be it. Make your story!
That was too long, tldr it for me shesh!
Okay. Like/reblog this for a starter. Get told all the information in character. Plot a plan with a partner to separate puppted Meiling and Nobunaga. Submit said plan and partner so when Miko comes around telling of location you three can sortie for it and start your Part 3 end threads.
And that’s it for now. All updates will be posted here and tagged maonapping so you can all find it with the current incident link.
Again, like/reblog this to spread it around and expect your starter for the event by the weekend. Feel free to start considering an incident solving partner in the meantime.
pls tell me some brilliantly cliche hallmark xmas movies to watch im begging
OH MAN HERE WE GO
Possibly my favorite is The Nine Lives of Christmas, which I found inexplicably charming and enjoyable. There’s a hot man, fireman banter, many cats, hot men holding cats!, a female character who actually prioritizes her success, and a male character who actually respects that. Incredible! 10/10 have this one saved on my dvr
Holiday in Handcuffs is an ABC Family/now Freeform movie, but it will always be at the top of my list. The forced marriage plot….but with kidnapping??? Mario Lopez and Melissa Joan Hart??? How many times can I see this movie?? It’s illogical and ridiculous, and unlike any other TV movie. 11/10
Christmas Under Wraps is possibly the most surreal made for TV movie I’ve ever seen. D.J. Tanner goes to Alaska, gives up her dreams, and with no explanation, Santa is real and pulling the strings. No questions are answered. It’s a winner. 10/10
Starring the actor who played the shit Coleman Wasserman, he’s back for a much more cheery role in Christmas in Homestead. Our prototypical story—a successful woman with no soul learns the meaning of Christmas by falling in love with a grumpy but attractive small town boy—except this acting is half way decent. Coleman looks good in a quarter zip sweater. 9/10
Crown for Christmas is a FAV. A New York woman takes a job as a governess for a princess and falls in love with the king of a small, made up European country. Wholesome fun. I like the main actress a lot, she’s believable and the only one they hire that’s vaguely ethnic looking. Like maybe she’s Italian. Better than the hoard of blondes. 9/10. She also stars in this less interesting, but still decent one (My Christmas Dream) where she plays a department store manager. Weird. 6/10.
I also love Baby’s First Christmas, which has a complicated plot and some REAL interesting banter. Worth it. 9/10.
A Princess for Christmas stars Katie McGrath and Sam Heughan, and even though he’s all buttoned up in this, he’s still pretty cute. The children are annoying, but overall, a classic. 8/10.
Looks like Christmas—unlike most Hallmark movies, they actually hired some actors who aren’t in their early 30s and shockingly, they can act. This one is full of banter and nearly believable performances. 8/10
More fake engagements! I’ll watch them all!!! Holiday Engagement is an unconvincing but enjoyable one, where a woman hires a man to be her fiance after the real one dumps her. 8/10. Hitched for the Holidays takes it a step farther, and has a Jewish woman and a Catholic man fake a relationship for Christmas, so much religious bumbling ensues. The girl is extremely cute. 9/10. In The Mistletoe Promise, two mostly unlikable career people sign a very business like contract to fake a relationship for the holidays, but fall in love anyway! 6/10. I do love Snow Bride, in which a reporter pretending not to be a reporter pretends to be the fiance of a hot rich dude to make his brother jealous. Intrigue! 9/10. A December Bride has bad acting, but some decent bantering and a lot of cool Christmas decorations. 7/10. My Fake Fiance is great, but not Christmasy. 4/10.
There’s something about this red head actress that I really like, I think it’s her voice? She talks in this bizarre way that makes her slightly less generic then the other white women they cast in these movies. So here are some of hers: Christmas List, another career woman learns the error of her sinful working ways via a small town man. 7/10. I’m Not Ready for Christmas, another career woman is cursed by Santa Clause to only tell the truth all Christmas season. A dark but ultimately heartwarming movie. 8/10. In A Merry Mix Up, she’s supposed to go to her fiance’s house for Christmas but accidentally goes to a strangers. Ridiculous! There’s a lot of weird clock imagery! 9/10.
Broadcasting Christmas is Melissa Joan Hart’s newest contribution to the franchise. She actually has some chemistry with this actor. Wacky hijinks, as always, ensue. 7/10.
In yet another movie about women fall in love on public transportation, in A Christmas Detour, D.J. falls in love with a surly bartender when her flight to her fiance’s house gets snowed in. Another is One Starry Christmas, which includes a cowboy….classic. 8/10.
More movies about one person trying to shut down a Christmas-y business, and the other person stopping them by falling in love: Christmas Incorporated, which features a toy factory and Darcy from Degrassi. 6/10. Christmas Cookies, which features a COOKIE factory and some decent banter. 8/10. Christmas Land, which features a Christmas theme park. 7/10. Let it Snow features D.J. and a Christmas themed hotel. 7/10. I’m gonna count The Christmas Parade, which includes a children’s art center being shut down. 6/10. In Hats Off to Christmas, Hillary Duff’s sister’s Santa hat selling business is in peril. Absurd performances. There’s a pumpkin carving contest? And a go cart race? Vaguely surreal. 6/10.
A Bride for Christmas and A Boyfriend for Christmas sound the same, but they are NOT. In Bride, they rip off How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and it’s decently entertaining. 8/10. In Boyfriend, there’s a completely illogical plot involving a potentially real Santa Clause and a creepy dude appearing on a girl’s doorstep as her present. Some fake relationship stuff in this one, plus the surreal Santa aspects, give it a 8/10
And of course there’s Family for Christmas, which will haunt me for the rest of my life. Upsetting and at the end, all the children basically die. Dark Hallmark channel. 2/10.
He remembered Yurio for all this time and reached out to him because he wanted to be friends. Their personalities are similar and complimentary, like he says. It’s amazing because it only took them a few hours to become good friends??? Yurio is laughing???
Such a beautifully written and boarded episode by Katie and Lamar ! They freakin’ kidnapped Steven i’m so done i laughed so much and it made me smile and look at how good this scene was damn (as was the entire ep just sayin)
izuku midoriya doesn’t win/succeed all the time but despite that he still improves himself
people with quirks don’t always have interests/hobbies coinciding with their quirk (ex. mei hatsume, who has the quirk to zoom with her eyes up to 5 km but she’s an inventor and creates gadgets to support heroes)
there are students like bakugou & shinsou who may seem villainous & treacherous due to their quirks or personalities, but they aim to be heroes despite all the criticism
the main heroine, uraraka ochako, canonly has a crush on deku but she doesn’t let it get in the way of her goal to becoming a hero. she even states she will “shut them down”
the minor characters in BNHA each get their own spotlight
the recent manga chapters made it clear that no one is going to be the “chosen one”. not one, not even two but a group of people
things like the student kidnappings and the repeated villain break-ins due to U.A’s mistakes aren’t overlooked, but even criticized by the media in BNHA
it was made clear that sheer strength and attack power alone isn’t going to help any hero. coordination with those on your side and sympathizing with the victims is essential, and being a stubborn lone wolf isn’t helping anyone
a bully and a victim’s relationship can’t be fixed in a snap, but it can be improved if given sufficient time
shigaraki does not like stain one bit. just because they’re both somewhat villains, does not mean they will work together
endeavour is the no. 2 top hero in the BNHA universe but he is disliked and extremely flawed.
we don’t see just the struggles of izuku as a student, but of all might as a teacher too
bakugou katsuki’s development doesn’t happen in one snap of a finger
all, if not most, quirks in BNHA have a catch. they aren’t perfect, but they can be polished and improved with effort
the mentor and inspiration to all might, known to be the greatest hero in the BNHA universe, is a woman
testutestu testutestu’s name
it’s clear in the latter half of season 1 that’s BNHA’s universe isn’t that sweet. there are people like the villain alliance who seek to rid the world of balance, or stain who despises heroes who only do it for money and go as far as to mortally wound them and kill them.
adding from the last bullet, there are people who don’t like heroes. not everyone is accepting of this change, even if it’s widespread and the most focused on aspect in BNHA
quirks can alter people’s appearances since birth
not only humans can have quirks, but animals too! although it’s very, very rare
So it’s been a few days and I’ve done, shall we say, a few rewatches of those scenes. And something has started to clarify for me. In that first scene between Ian and Mick, I found myself surprised but pleased that Ian pushed Mickey first. This is by no means condoning any violence these two exhibit towards each other, but after all the retconning about how horrible Mickey was I expected him to be portrayed as more violent. But Ian was actually more physically aggressive throughout the episode. And it’s not like I blame him for being aggravated by getting faux-kidnapped by Mickey’s lackeys. I’m not celebrating them tossing each other around, but I can’t fault Ian for standing up for himself.
And that’s where my moment of realization came. Ian stood up for himself. Ian was annoyed about something and he called Mickey out on it. They had a back and forth, however brief and a little childish, and moved on. And that was really nice to see. Because since Mickey got written out, Ian hasn’t really gotten to do that in one of his relationships. He’s always been subservient, there to be taught and educated and improved. As I suffered through s6 waiting for some logic to present itself in Ian’s ‘romance,’ I kept craving for Ian to fucking push back at all the nonsense Caleb threw at him. And he just never did. Even when they broke up, the problem was apparently with Caleb’s sexual orientation, not with his cheating and manipulation. That’s just. The fuck.
I really can’t comment on Trevor since I haven’t been watching most of s7. But I know enough to know that this is yet another Teaching Relationship through which Ian is to be improved. Listen, there’s nothing wrong with learning and growing in a relationship. It’s important. You should become a better person thanks to your partner. But the way the Shameless writers have done things, Ian doesn’t really get to have a point of view. He becomes a blank slate through which the character is either arbitrarily moved from Point A to Point B (Caleb’s teachings getting him into an EMT job) or serves as a stand-in for audience members (expanding understanding/sensitivity on trans issues). It’s not that either of these things is bad on paper. But it means that Ian has become a plot device instead of a living, breathing character.
But with Mickey in 7x10, almost from the start, he feels like a real person again. He pushes back, he fights, he’s vocal and opinionated. And suddenly he feels like Ian again. The 7x10 scenes were a lot of fun because we got to see our erstwhile ship together again. But I’m realizing more and more that it was just as nice to get to see Ian Gallagher again. Certainly not without flaws, but someone I recognize and enjoy. I don’t even think that it’s intentional on the writers’ part. I think they don’t even realize how much they’ve let Ian get steamrollered in the name of ‘character growth’ in the past two seasons. But something happens when they write Ian with Mickey, and even when they’re trying to sabotage that relationship the characters still shine through better than ever. Both of them.
So that’s what I’ve been thinking. It’ll be sad to lose Mickey again. But it’ll also be terribly sad to lose Ian too.
Nice, get some everclear in the mix! Thanks for the prompt :)
“Look,” I say, “it’s not you, it’s me. I think I’m just heading in a different direction right now. I can’t let our relationship hold me back anymore.”
Light, fastest man on Earth, superhero extraordinaire, stops struggling against his bonds to stare at me. “Did you kidnap me to…break up with me?”
My heart skips a beat. “No! I mean, we’re not even, like, dating so I’m not. Obviously.” I adjust my rubber gloves nervously, tucking my lab coat more securely into them. “Just, um, letting you know that you don’t need to save the day anymore. From me at least.” I laugh and stop abruptly, face flushing. My laugh is off putting, so I hear.
Light speed kicks the chair I’ve tied him to and grimaces when it doesn’t break.
“It’s titanium,” I say, shoving my hands into my coat’s pockets. “I’ll let you go, just wanted to tell you goodbye, I guess. We, uh, probably won’t be seeing each other again.”
“Are you dying?” he asks, strangely alarmed. He lowers his voice. “Or is someone threatening you?” His eyes narrow. “Is it Technomaniac? Because he’s from Texas, this isn’t even his turf, I can contact the heroes down there to come get him–”
“I’m not being threatened,” I blurt out. He’d kick another villain out of LA for me? Why? “I just, it’s time for me to move on, that’s all. I, well…”
“You are dying,” Light says, face horrified. “Oh my god, and I threw you through that window last week!”
“I’m not dying!” I throw my hands up in the air. “I’m quitting being a villain!”
The words ring in the empty lab. All of my equipment has already been disposed of, the experiments, everything. I’m ready for a new start, totally and completely.
“You’re…quitting.” Light seems unable to comprehend it. “Like, quitting quitting? Or taking a break? Or maybe you mean rebranding, I hear that’s popular these days–”
The premiere picks up where last season’s cliffhanger left off – Brennan kidnapped by her former assistant, Zack Addy (guest star Eric Milligan), as Booth and the rest of the lab desperately search for her. Brennan’s rescue is, however, just the beginning of their problems. Booth’s past as a sniper will come back to haunt him, resulting in the deaths of two people he holds dear.

Request: (anon) I absolutely love your joker x daughter reader imagines! ❤️❤️ Can you please write one where the reader was kidnapped at a young age, Joker and Harley thought she died but she was actually taken to a facility to be brainwashed into hating them to the point where she forgets they’re her parents then J and Harley finally see her again when she’s told she has to kill them. Sorry for it being to specific, the idea popped in my head early today hahaha xxx
Oh don’t apologize! Being specific only helps me more to give ya what you want!
“Flag, is she ready?” Amanda Waller walked into the facility and threw files on the desk. Rick Flag walked over and extended his hand for her to shake but she walked right past him.
“..Uh yes man she’s all ready. Not many people can complete my program but she flew through it no problem.”
“Of course she did.” Waller stepped in front of you. You were taller than her, stronger, you were trained to be a weapon for as long as you could remember. “She’s been in the works for a long time.”
“Waller where exactly did you say she came from?” Flag was getting suspicious after seeing how Waller stared you down.
“I didn’t say.” Waller went and grabbed her files and pulled out two photos. The Joker and Harley quinn. She showed them to you. The photos didn’t give you a physical response but you felt tightness in your chest. “These two will be your next mission. They’re different from anything you’ve handled before, that’s why I’ve had Flag train you.” he handed the photos to you noticing you couldn’t take your eyes off of them. “Since you’ll find out anyway. Yes, they are your parents. The horrible monsters I told you about long ago. Will their deaths be a problem for you? Will you pull the trigger agent?”
You dropped the picture to the floor snapping out of your daze. Your parents. Waller had told you all about them. They gave you up without a second thought, abandoning you to the filth of the Gotham streets. Now you were going to get the revenge you were promised. “No ma’am.” You said before marching over to the weapons vault and gearing up as usual before a mission and heading to the door past Flag.
“Waller. What the fuck is going on? You told me she was just a soldier you didn’t tell me wh-” Flag was in a rage.
“I told you what you needed to know. What you had to hear to get the job done. Flag.” She picked the files off the ground and walked out the door.
“This isn’t right Amanda! Even you have to have morals under it all!” Flag shouted after her but it was no use. Both her and you were gone.
The Joker was sitting in the empty room clutching his cane and throwing back his whiskey. Ever since you had been gone he was different. If he needed money he would rob a bank and if he had to kill he would but that was it. The fun was taken out of it for him, there was no punchline. When you were taken the life had been sucked out of him. If it weren’t for Harley he would have slit his throat on one of his many drunken and lonely nights. The house they shared became more like a shrine for you. Your baby and toddler pictures were all they had of you. The pictures you drew for him, the dresses you wore, the toys you played with were all saved and spread throughout the house. It pained him to look at them but the thought of getting rid of them and erasing your memory hurt even more. They had searched everywhere for you, ripped the city apart but it was like you just vanished.
The Joker was snapped out of his thoughts when bullets ravaged the windows and walls surrounding him. He threw himself to the floor and covered his head. Smoke filled the room making him cough. His cough turned into a laugh as he crawled over to where he kept his machine guns and grabbed one. Not knowing who was there or where he began returning the fire. When he ran out he stood up walking blindly through the room reloading.
“Well come on! Come out come out wherever you are! he said still laughing. Hr fired more shots into the air to spook whoever was hiding out. “I promise I won’t bite…hard!” He spun around the room trying to wave away the clouds. “Harley if this is about the other night at the club I told ya she was coming onto me!”
“It’s not be Puddin.” he heard Harley say in a shaky voice. She was led through the smoke by a woman with a hand on Harleys neck and a gun to her head. The Joker lowered his gun and his jaw dropped. The woman approached him and threw Harley at his feet before holding a gun up to them.
You stared them down and they stared back at you. You looked down at his gun and signaled with yours for him to point it back at you. The Joker saw the hint you were giving and instead dropped the gun to the floor and reached down to pick Harley up to her feet. His eyes widened and started to glisten with tears. He always imagined what it would be like if he saw you again, he had no idea how much it was would him.
He started to walk towards you and extended a hand to touch you but you fired a bullet past his head. He stopped in his tracks and Harley let out a scream.
“Honey don’t shoot him please!” she begged.
“Don’t talk! And don’t call me that!” you turned your gaze to him and put the gun on his forehead. “And don’t you move.”
The Joker was paralyzed. He didn’t even feel the gun on his skin, all he could focus on was your eyes. He was taken back to the day you were born and the first thing Harley said was that you had your daddy’s eyes. Then the sound of your voice echoed in his memory, ‘I love you daddy’. A love so pure he would kill or die for. Then it came flooding in, the image of you being ripped from your mothers arms and him not being able to stop it. Not being strong enough, not being in control, not being able to save the only thing deep down inside of him that he cared about. Tears started to fall down his pale cheeks.
You looked at him confused. All the horrible stories Waller had told you were running through your head but it was like you weren’t in control of your body. You couldn’t make your finger pull the trigger.
“Before I do this..” you tried to say to gain control again. “I just want to know why?. What the fuck did I do, what could a child do for even the lowest of the low to leave her out to die?”
The Joker turned to Harley and they exchanged a blank look. He turned back to you and cleared his throat. “Don’t you mean what could a child do for her to be taken?” Your eyes darted back and forth not understanding what he was saying. “You mean what could parents have done that’s so wrong someone steals their child? Is that what you mean baby?”
“Shut up! Don’t call me that you have no fucking clue what you’re talking about.” You screamed at him and felt your chest tighten up again. “I know all about you and all the horrible things you’ve done but nothing compared to abandoning me!”
“I don’t know what you’ve been told by who but I DIDN’T ABANDON YOU!” The joker screamed so loud it even shook you, after all your training and years as a solider you couldn’t keep your gun still. “You were taken from me! From us! I’ve been looking for you ever since!”
“No no no no NO!” you grabbed your head as it started to ache and turned your back to them. While the two of you were entranced by each other you didn’t notice the smoke clearing the room. You saw the toys and dresses and pictures all sprawled out. You had never seen a photo of yourself before. You looked at the innocent little girl, blonde and blue eyed sitting on the Jokers lap. You didn’t want to believe it.
“They shocked you didn’t they? No matter how much time passes the pain in your head from it will never go away. I know exactly what that feels like.” The Joker and Harley put their hands on your back, but this time you didn’t say no. The touch made the tightness in your chest disappear and you couldn’t help it, you felt drawn to them. “Whoever they are they lied to you. Look how happy you are in these photos, look at us. We wouldn’t give this up.” He stared at the back of your head and stroked your hair like he used to when you were little. His eyes were still wet with tears.
Your head was still pounding and you were so angry. You knew you had been lied to but didn’t know who was doing it. You shot back up and raised your gun again. Flashes of the electroshock sessions filled up your brain. The doctors telling you to bite down, hold still, the pain won’t last long, the training, the locked doors, more training, executions for the greater good.
“Why would someone take me from you? Prove that they didn’t. What would be the point?” You said feeling tears starting to build up.
“Maybe it’s for this reunion. You clearly came here to kill us. What better way for us to go out than our own child doing it. Whoever told you about us they were right. We do horrible things that’s who we are. But we loved you. Whoever turned you into a human weapon, do you think they really care? Do you think they took you for a good reason? A better life?”
“Waller told me you were a master manipulator.” you spat at him.
The Joker began to cackle. Harley stood their seething at hearing that woman’s name again. “Did ya hear that Harley? Amanda Waller we should have known! The same woman who kept stealing you from me for bullshit mission with the squad took our baby too!” You stood their shocked listening to him. You knew about the squad and her forcing Harley Quinn to be apart of it. You remembered Waller telling you that it wasn’t the same with your case. That you wanted to be doing this. You remembered Waller telling you what you wanted a lot.
“What would Amanda Waller gain from taking me?” you didn’t want to be convinced of what you knew was true.
The Joker stopped laughing, he couldn’t force it out anymore. He let his arms dropped to the side of his aching body. He clutched his chest in pain and breathed heavily. He didn’t want to play this game anymore, he never wanted to play these mind games with you.
“Baby.. what would I gain from abandoning you and then filling the house with these photos and toys? What would I gain from going in circles with you now? Nothing.” He stood before you, the spitting imagine of your mother but all he could look at was your eyes.
“But you asked what Waller would gain. Exactly this. Someone to take out people for her, including us. It ain’t to late honey, we can go back to normal with you with us again. You don’t have to be controlled by her anymore.” Harley put her hand on yours lowering the gun.
You felt betrayed. You felt lost. You felt angry and sad and relieved all at once. You felt for the first time like you weren’t property. Like you had a choice and a say in what you could do. You sank down to your knees unable to handle everything your body was feeling. The Joker threw himself to the floor with you and waited for what you would say next. You wanted to interrogate them more, you wanted to beat them for letting you go, you wanted to beat Waller for taking you, you wanted to scream and shout. You looked up at the clown and opened your mouth to unload but all that you could get out was one faint word.
