This one-shot is based off of this prompt from @writing-prompt-s, because I happened the see it while I was in the middle of reading Suicide Squad, and I thought it would be fun to use it to write something about my favorite DC lady.
This was originally just a short practice piece, but I decided to go ahead and post it because there’s a serious lack of Harley/Reader stuff on this website.
Title: The Apartment
Fandom: DC Universe (comics), Suicide Squad (comics)
You knew going into this that there had to be a reason that the rent on this place was so cheap. You’d just been hoping it was something annoying but ultimately harmless, like bad plumbing or a mouse problem.
What you definitely hadn’t been expecting was to move into a supervillain’s lair. One that the villain hadn’t even fully moved out of, in fact.
This was what you got for signing the papers before you’d even set foot in the place, you mused as you stared down at the chalk outline on your kitchen floor. It was roughly the size and shape of a man, sprawled in an unnatural position. Okay, so there was a murder in the apartment. Big deal. You weren’t particularly superstitious – it wasn’t like you expected a vengeful ghost to haunt you for the duration of your occupancy. You could work with this.
The stuff in the spare bedroom, however, had you worried.
