The area was mostly quiet save the occasional 'ting' of metal as a half charred coin flipped through the air. Harvey Dent, former District Attorney of the most corrupt city in the world, sat on edge of a toppled cabinet, elbows resting over his knees and back hunched as his fingers caught the glorified heirloom. Sometimes he wondered what his father would have thought of his precious keepsake's fate. Harvey imagined he'd find it a fine joke under the right influence.

The room itself was a mess, a failed lead he had searched thoroughly enough, and now there was nothing much left to do after the waves of rage had subsided. He had strayed from the community after his little chat with the Joker, and now simply sat and waited. Part of him had no doubt he would be found, while the other was skeptical. Whatever the case they needed to talk- Crane, the toxin, however much Harvey would be able to impart. He flipped his coin and clutched it in his palm, not looking to the answer.

The Joker didn't believe that using leads from his goons was cheating, and that fact was rewarded when he, also following a lead, heard the quiet sound of Harvey's coin flipping. He usually didn't mask his footsteps and today they were slow, long steps, humming vaguely to himself. "...Going to do just as I want to anyway..."

He grabbed the doorframe, turned slow into the room and leaned against the door jamb. "And don't care just what people say." He grinned at the slouched position of Harvey - so familiar, really - and chuckled. "Olly olly oxen free."

He looked over the room with a vague glance, raising an eyebrow. "Feeling destructive, Harv?"

Harvey glanced up at the muffled hum. If I should take a notion, to jump into the ocean-

"You're late." He said in a deadpan, almost surprised he was found at all. He flipped his coin yet again, watching it sail through the air and back in his palm. Even now it was an image that could horrify him.

"Didn't like their decorative choices." He answered dryly, looking up and waiting for the clown to enter completely. "Close the door."

Date: 2009-05-10 02:04 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Oh really?)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
"I had to count all the way to one hundred, Harv. Of course I'm late."

Straight to business, huh? He shrugged and slipped inside, shutting the door behind him as he bounced on his heels.

"So, what's the dish, pal? Something, uh, something eating at you?"

Harvey turned the coin over in his hands, expression edging on thoughtful. Calculating. Harvey knew what the Bat would do with the information he filtered to him on all this- Joker was another story. He could never be sure, and that was more dangerous than he was sure he could risk.

He ran his thumb over the charred side of his coin and wondered if that black mass would ever wear away. "There's a new player in town." He glanced up. "Remember the break out at Arkham a few weeks ago?"

Date: 2009-05-10 02:33 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Are you sure?)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
The Joker kicked over pieces of debris, making something like a chair for him to sit on. Settling in, he gave Harvey an exaggeratedly wide-eyed stare. "There was a break out?"

Then he rolled his eyes. "Are you talking about this Ra's guy you were fishing for information on?"

Date: 2009-05-10 02:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
"The Bat mentioned him." Harvey watched him as he sat, keeping his gaze. "Told me he was dangerous and I'd do best to stay away."

He raised his brow. "Said Crane was up to something as well, or at least suspected it."

Date: 2009-05-10 02:39 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Oh I don't know...)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
The Bat. "Taking advice from a guy you wanna kill, Harv? And besides, we're pretty dangerous ourselves."

He rolled his eyes. "Crane is always up to something. At least he keeps it inside his own Gotham."

Date: 2009-05-10 02:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
"I never said I took his advice." Harvey answered lowly, a bit of an edge. "And I never said I agreed with him either."

Harvey nearly rolled his eyes in return. "Yeah, the last plan he had was nothing to worry about." He said with a pointed sort of irritation.

Date: 2009-05-10 03:05 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Serious business)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
The Joker shifted. He figured there was a bit of a truce between him and Crane, really - you do your thing, I'll do mine, and never the twain shall meet. But if Harvey was worried, well now.

"You're new to the game, Harv. What do you know?" Why not humor the guy?

From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
"About Crane?" Harvey's brow raised. "I could recite his damned record- hell, his blood type if you really wanted to know. I doubt most of it is true anyway."

He glanced to the window. "I know whatever he was a part of could have destroyed Gotham. I could care less about his little experiments but if he tries another stunt like before-" he didn't bother continuing, what was the point? He knew more about the Narrows attack than most in the city, between what clearance he had as DA and Rachel's own knowledge of the matter. Maybe more his obsession over it long before the Joker even showed his face so readily.

Date: 2009-05-10 03:49 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Really now.)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
"He won't destroy Gotham." The Joker didn't believe that for a second - well, he didn't believe that Crane wouldn't try, but... "He's got no reason to. I heard the only reason he even went with his little ransom plan was because he got gassed himself." By the Batman. Oh, Batsy, you cause nothing but trouble...

"Crane is easy to read, Harvey. He only does something if there's a payout for him. Unless this new player of yours, this, uh, Ra's guy is giving Crane something to play for, he'll keep his games personal."

"Whether that's true or not he's up to something." Harvey snapped, glaring at the Joker. "Look what he managed before, with or without the intent to destroy the city. If someone else is pulling the strings again it's possible." His tone lowered. "And it would take a good deal to pull the good doctor's strings." Crane wasn't an idiot after all, and he certainly wasn't gullible.

Date: 2009-05-10 04:06 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Fingerpointing)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
The Joker glared right back. "Then what do you suggest, Harvey? There's not much for us to do until he does something. I can't have my goons follow him everywhere."

Date: 2009-05-10 04:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
"I'm not suggesting anything." Harvey shot back- he wasn't even sure what he was expecting. Why did he even bother- it's not like the Joker was likely to do more than laugh in the face of destruction. He didn't know, he didn't want to know. The pillars of his life were disturbing things.

"I'm keeping an eye on him." Not particularly well but as well as he could.

Date: 2009-05-10 04:27 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (I don't think so)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
"Which one?" he asked, grinning. He was already thinking, though, the wheels turning - what if it was something to do with Edward's little plan, the one Crane had insisted didn't exist? And what if Crane had a reason - a motive - no. That was paranoia.

"What else do you know?" Maybe an extra glance or two in Crane's direction was necessary.

From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
Harvey stood, walking past and ignoring him even in his small surge of anger. He stopped when the clown spoke again, turning at the change of heart and a moment's pause.

"That this character may be the one who helped Crane with his original ploy. The Bat seemed pretty sure of it." he answered after the silence had stretched.

Date: 2009-05-10 05:27 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Serious business)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
The Joker paused to watch Harvey, frowning. He pushed himself up with a groan, cracking his back as he did so. "That, Harvey, is called useful information. That should have been the first thing you told me."

Date: 2009-05-10 05:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
"Oh, you're interested now?" Harvey asked with a sardonic air, glancing at the movement and frown with an irate expression. "Crane might have the means to do just that again."

Date: 2009-05-10 06:08 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Are you sure?)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
"Then let's kill him." He said it idly but he was most definitely watching Harvey with more focus than he was letting on. If Harvey really thought it was a threat...

Date: 2009-05-10 06:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
"I can't do that." Harvey answered, expression cold as he watched the other. The Joker shouldn't need the why explained at this point in the game. He turned. "I'm not stopping you." He never really considered Crane's death after that meeting months before, the man's incredible luck.

Part of him doubted the Joker could even do it- Crane was interesting, if nothing else. Then again he had already proven how possessive of the city he was.

"Do what you want." He finished.

Date: 2009-05-10 06:29 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Really now.)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
He watched Harvey for a minute longer, then stood, squinting at the ex D.A. as he stood there. "You think it's necessary?"

Date: 2009-05-10 06:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
"Does it matter if I do?" Harvey spat, half turning to throw an angry glare. "My opinion won't change a damned thing. Is he dangerous? Sure, and so are you. If you want to know how to save Gotham all of us- you, me, Crane and the Bat - would need to be slaughtered where we stood."

Date: 2009-05-10 06:37 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Grrr)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
"I wouldn't ask you if it didn't, Harvey."

Ugh, these petty bitching fits were getting old. "You aren't telling me everything, so how the fuck should I know what to do? It'd be a shame after breaking him out to have to kill him, but if he fucks Gotham over..."

Date: 2009-05-10 06:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thedawniscoming.livejournal.com
Harvey stood a moment, looking him over with something thoughtful, almost surprised. It was lost as he snorted.

"I shouldn't have told you anything." He said more to himself, turning away again. "Killing him will solve nothing. Why would Crane want to destroy Gotham- like you said. He's just a part of something bigger."

Date: 2009-05-10 07:07 am (UTC)
tntandgasoline: (Fingerpointing)
From: [personal profile] tntandgasoline
"You should have told me everything. I don't like finding things out through the wrong channels." The implication that Harvey was a right channel, was someone he could trust, was implicit. "But that's behind us, now. Don't tell the Bat you told me a goddamned thing, though - he won't tell you anything, otherwise."
