Helping Out Fear (Scarecrow x Mad Hatter)Jonathan Crane was absolutely despising life at the moment, cursing as he staggered away from the burning Nightfall Manor. Damn that Batman, destroying his beautiful plan and beloved lab in one fell swoop. Hell, he even left Crane to die! The injured doctor grit his teeth as he stole an oversized coat, running through his options before heading off towards his destination. It took most of the day, Crane seeking refuge in an abandoned house until night fell, where he stole a car and drove the rest of the way the best he could. The double-jointed male knew several bones were broken, his left wrist throbbing as it continued to swell with an ugly dark-purple color. His right leg grated with each small movement he made, Crane ready to end it all when the familiar house came into view. Several thugs stopped his car, ready to loot and possibly kill the man inside before realizing who it was with fear flashing across their faces. The psychologist watched as he was taken to their boss inside aMore Like This
Hatred And Love (Scarecrow x Mad Hatter)Jervis Tetch hummed as he made his way down the street, unrecognizable due to the fact he was wearing normal clothes overtop his usual costume. Can’t have those pesky policemen come and arrest him now can we? Grinning once he reached his desired location, Jervis flashed a crooked smile to one of the few men who were guarding a warehouse, he was lead inside to his boyfriend, who was hunched over a microscope.More Like This
“Quite the escape Jervis.” He muttered, not looking up as the other male made himself comfortable on a ratty couch nearby, throwing his oversized coat to the side.
“Why thank you! Your fear toxin is quite the distraction if I may say so myself.” He chuckled, clapping his hands excitedly when a henchman came over with Jervis’s mind control devices. What had him excited though was his beloved hat, which was quickly placed atop his head with a large and bright grin. He didn’t notice that Crane was looking over at him subtly, a brief smile cros
Mind Of The Damned (Scarecrow x Mad Hatter) (7)Being the Joker, his arrival was met with deafening applause and cheers from the inmates. The man was basically a god to the underground of Gotham, and after coming back to life he was immortalized and every criminal now had some sort of respect for him.More Like This
“Thank you! Thank you!” He grinned as he soaked up all the attention, stripped of his usual suit and given the Arkham uniform. His body was crisscrossed with hundreds of scars from past encounters, the worst being a cluster above his heart from the TITAN poisoning. One of the guards locked the door as he approached the half-dressed Joker, pushing the man against a wall as he grinned.
“I’m gonna have me some of the Joker~” The purred in what he thought was a terrifying way. Joker grinned and stabbed the man with his own knife, cackling madly as he continued to stab the poor man to death until the other guards subdued him. He was lead to his cell after being bound in a strait jacket, the man grinning as the
Mind Of The Damned (Scarecrow x Mad Hatter) (6)Crane was starting to get annoyed by Edwards constant pestering of why he kept seeing the warden, and by the third day he snapped.More Like This
"Edward Nigma, enough questions or I will gas you into oblivion!" He growled, snapping the pen he had been writing with while the Rogues were relaxing in their own common room. Jervis giggled from where he was drawing, and a newly recaptured Mr. Freeze looked up from his novel. "I will not answer your pointless questions, so stop asking!"
"I want to know, I've seen the bruises." Crane froze and stared at Nigma, who crossed his arms. "Where did you get them from, because those are very recent."
"None of your business Mr. Nigma." Warden Odell smirked from the doorway, the door closing as he walked over to Crane and placed a firm hand onto his shoulder. "Dr. Crane here is merely doing as I ask of him, that is all. And unless you wish to spend the next month in solitary then I would suggest you stop asking questions. Now, if that is all Dr. Crane and I have our

"What happened to him?" Cash asked, helping Batman bring the man to the infirmary ward, where the detective slowly started working it off.
"Nigma tried to use a virtual reality helmet on myself. I beat him at his game and the feedback looped back at his own helmet." Batman explained, Nigma passing out when the band was removed and shorted out on the detectives hand. "He's all yours." The guard chuckled as a doctor came in to do a usual preliminary check up, the Dark Knight having vanished in the blink of an eye. Crane looked up from his book when Nigma was carried to his cell, Jervis smiling as the man was placed on his cot.
"Look who has come to join us, Mr. Riddler himself." Jervis chuckled in amusement, fiddling with his current drawing as the the cell block was locked down for the night. The cellmates retired for the night before the ni
Mind Of The Damned (Scarecrow x Mad Hatter) (4)Jon couldn't sit properly the entire day, unnoticed by Hatter who made several paper hats to try and replace the one broken by Batman. It made him look ridiculous, but Jon knew how important it was to the man so he let him be. The other inmates weren't stupid to try and mess with the short Brit, except for an obvious newcomer, who cornered the man in the recreation area with a smirk.More Like This
"Hey shorty. Whatcha got there?" He motioned to the newest hat in progress with a smirk.
"Why, it's my new hat, I know it's nothing now, but-hey!" Jervis got to his feet as the man snatched it from his hands and held it close for inspection.
"Ya know what this needs? A little...character!" With that he crumpled it into a ball and tossed it into a trash can with a laugh, the other inmates clearing the center of the room.
"My hat! My beautiful hat! Why did you do this?" Jervis whimpered, grunting when the man lifted him into the air by the collar of his inmate uniform.
"I'm tryin ta understand why people are
Mind Of The Damned (Scarecrow x Mad Hatter) (2)Crane felt like crap when he finally opened his eyes and sat up, immediately washing out his mouth when he rushed to his private bathroom. He could't describe the level of violation he felt when images of what had happened kept repeating in front of his eyes, and the anger of being incapacitated by his own gas to allow such disgusting acts to take place. Lost in his thoughts, Crane jumped when his door was opened to allow two guards to escort the only man sane enough to put up with Crane longer than a few moments. Then again, sane was not quite the word to describe this particular individual, more like mad. Mad Hatter frowned as the door was shut, fixing his clothes as he noticed crane with the familiar toothy grin.More Like This
"Crane! There you are, hiding from me were you not?" He teased, getting a roll of the eyes as he came out from the bathroom.
"Hello Jervis, looking worse for wear I see." He greeted dryly, holding out a spare wash cloth so Jervis could dab at his bleeding lip.

Mind Of The Damned (Scarecrow x Mad Hatter) (1)Dr. Jonathan Crane was known as the Master of Fear among many of his other names, but one question always seemed to pop up. Did the Master of Fear have his own terror? Up until recently that answer was no, until Arkham Asylum got a new warden by the name of Warden Jacob Odell. Crane hadn't been at the Asylum when the change happened, but was brought in by Batman about two months into his leadership. Crane found it odd that the mass inmates were silent, watching the Rouge be escorted to his familiar cell after being stripped of his fear toxin and outfit in exchange of his glasses and generic Asylum uniform. A man was waiting in his cell smoking a cigar, not moving as Crane was unstrapped from the gurney and the door locked behind him.More Like This
"Who are you?" Crane asked, folding his arms with a bored look on his haggard face. The other male grinned in a way that slightly unnerved the doctor, and stood from his seat.
