This story is set shortly after the death of Rachel Dawes in "The Dark Knight", and is somewhat of an AU. The Joker is still alive, well, and running rampant around Gotham. He is determined to cause as much chaos as he can manage... and his current plans involve pushing a certain billionaire to his limits. How does he go about this? By kidnapping the first woman Bruce Wayne has been with since Rachel's death.
The focus of this story is largely JokerxOC, though the ending has a bit of a twist that will make most Batman fans happy I think. Rated T for suggestive content, some violence, and cursing.
