Oswald Cobblepot looked up from the invitation and smiled as he seen Penguin's being put into the tanks, he took a breath and sighed with happiness, his vision of his base of operations was coming alive and he could not be happier.

This weekend they would have a grand re-opening of the Iceberg Lounge and it was going to be the biggest event of the year, he could picture it.

Oswald turned and walked out of the soon to be club, he waddled down the front steps and out into the darkness, since Aggie was busy with her toxin cure, he was busy trying to put everything in order for the club.

As he walked towards his car where one of his henchmen was waiting on him, he heard a whistling from his right.

He turned and looked into the alley, he got a grip on his umbrella and put his thumb on the button that would eject the blade on the end out.

"Who's there?"

A chuckling came as the man walked out of the shadows and grinned at Oswald, his pale skin looked sickly and his giant red smile seemed to light his eyes up.

"Now, now, Oswald. Is that any way to treat an old friend?"

Jeremiah Valeska, now J, stood in front of Oswald with a huge smile and almost no hair at all, he laughed and walked up to Oswald "You look ...eh" J cocked his head to the side looking at Penguin "Chubby."

Oswald scowled "What do you want? I am busy" he simply told J who just shook his head and put his hands on his hips.

"Oh, Oswald. That really hurts my feelings. You could at least compliment me, do you like my new look? Took years but, I finally got work done" he said with a laugh. Then, J's look turned serious as he stared at him.

"I was thinking the other day, when Gotham was blown to pieces, it was so much easier. We had our wars, we had our own turf. But, there was one thing missing."

Oswald was getting annoyed "And what might that be?" he asked gritting his teeth.

J smiled "Nobody was laughing. And now, nobody is smiling. Gotham is missing that certain ...humor, used to people were murdered on the streets, people were running scared, and most importantly ...people were smiling" he said and frowned, he looked at Oswald in a sad way "Now, we have the G.C.P.D actually out doing their jobs, and we have this ..dark loser putting the hit against us criminals."

"What does this have to do with me?"

J smiled "Admit it. You hate this man as much as anyone else. You want him gone, but how about instead of killing him we do something else? Something to really mess him up?" J said, his eyes were wide "We can drive him as crazy as us."

Oswald just stared at him, then he chuckled "J, old friend. I don't want to play like we are in kindergarten" he told J simply and glared at him "I. Want. Him. Dead!"

J just looked at Oswald "Come on, Pangy. If he sees he is as crazy as the rest of us, who can stop us from doing what we do best?" he said.

Oswald shook his head "If he is dead, nobody can stop us. And the only crazy person standing out here is you. Now leave me be" he snapped and opened his car door, he started getting in and J held a hand out.

"Wait, wait, wait. Let me hand you my card."

He placed a card in Oswald's shirt pocket and patted it with a smile before turning away and starting to whistle as he walked down the sidewalk.

Oswald got in the car as fast as possible, as the goon drove away, he took the card out of his pocket and looked at it.

A joker playing card.

Oswald rolled his eyes "That clown, he really needs to be in Arkham" Oswald threw the card down "One thing is for certain, no clowns allowed will be my nightclubs only rule."
