These Insane Minds // J.Valeska
Harleen Quinzel was a medical intern working at Arkham Asylum before her life changed forever when she became the psychiatrist for the Joker. Before the Joker intervened, she was just an ordinary girl with a dream that she was trying to fulfil, but what happened to her before she met the Joker? What if the Joker and Harleen knew each other before they met at Arkham?
Enter Stephanie Harlem, the girl who grows up to become Harleen Quinzel and later the Joker's girlfriend: Harley Quinn. But before she was Harleen, she was a teenager living in the richest neighbourhoods of Gotham City. Daughter of Jefferson and Clarissa Harlem, the CEO's of Gotham City's second leading corporation, Stephanie lives an enviable life with everything she could ever dream of.
That is until her parents murder.
Steph, a newfound orphan, desperate for a connection with someone, is faced with challenges she never could imagine, and tasked with making decisions no one should ever have to make.
After all, falling in love with a psychopath is never something someone plans for, and never something no normal person would do.
Follow the adventures of Steph as she falls into the clutches of insanity and Jerome Valeska.
