Justice Society Headquarters, Gotham City
Earth-Two, 1978

Helena had had no problems in bringing Harley directly to the Justice Society's headquarters, located in the heart of Gotham City.  It's location was public knowledge, practically a landmark, a site pointed on tour groups that passed through.  Gotham itself might even be somewhat different than the one Harley was used to, lacking some of the background feeling of fear and paranoia that characterized other versions of the city.

She leads Harley to the portion of the building given over to medical facilities, already occupied by a man clad in blue and gold, his face hidden behind a gleaming golden helmet.  Also there was a man in black and red, combined with a dark green cape and dark goggles over his mask.

"Miss Quinn, Doctors Fate and Mid-Nite.  Doc Mid-Nite here is a real MD."

"I'm afraid I insisted on being present," he says, apologetically.  "Anything like this deserves proper medical supervision."

"Then I assume that Helena, and her detective skills, have told you that I pregnant." Harley did not bat an eye as she found a place to sit on the med bed. "Or am I mistaken?"

"She had," Mid-Nite replies. "One of the reasons I insisted."

He moves over to an instrument panel, activating a basic scan and examines the readings.

"Helena has also told us that you have been beset by nightmares of a most unnatural nature," Doctor Fate adds.

"It is more like the unnatural nature has made my nightmares worse than ever before. More real." Harley replied.

"I am not sure if you guys have an Arkham in this Gotham... but you should know I have been convicted in the Arkham in my universe. Sometimes my mind brings up memories of the past on its own. This fog... just enhanced everything."

"Arkham?" Mid-Nite asks.

"Some kind of mental hospital," Helena explains. "Found that out from a Scarecrow counterpart. Did some checking, they were going to build one here, but changed their plans at the last minute."

"Regardless of your past, you are in need now," Doctor Fate adds. "The paths of fate are seldom easy to see, but yours has led you to Helena and to here."

He turned to look at Harley. "If you are ready, I can begin. I will place you into a light trance, then use my magics to probe the nature of that which afflicts you."

"I am ready. Just wanted to warn you... I am insane." Harley says this matter-of-factly. Then lays down on the med cot.

Between Fate's immobile helmet, Mid-Nite's calm, medical demeanor, only Helena shows any kind of shock at this, but she does a good job of hiding it after the initial change of expression.

"Duly noted," Fate says, bringing up a hand, swathed in eldritch energy. He lets a gentle beam of light play out over Harley. "You are now entering the trace... Let the wisdom of the ancients and the light of Thoth, god of truth, reveal that which afflicts you."

A eerie sense of something unnatural would fill the room, as Harley entered into the trace. The fog that came from Silent Hill was right htere, keeping her mind locked in the dark horrible nightmares.

There was a eerie laughter that made Harley jolt. Was it just in her mind? Was he here?

"Slightly elevated stress levels," Mid-Nite reports. "You will stop before it gets to high."

Helena shudders, certain, if just for a moment, that she too had heard something.

Fate, meanwhile, continues with his probing. "You are definitely suffering under some sort of enchantment," he says. "Not of this universe. It will make it more difficult to combat, but I shall endeavor to try. Imhotep and Nabu guide my hand..."

Going deep into slumber now, the Silent Hill enchantment takes its claim over Harley's mind. And right there, her worse nightmare waits. Fate might sense all the dark and disturbing images of Joker and everything that he has done to this woman.

Her body recoils as if she had just been hit. And that Joker laugh seems stronger now.

But Fate feels that he is getting right to the strength of the unnatural force over her mind.

"Fate!" Worry breaks through Mid-Nite's calm voice. "If you're going to do something, I suggest you do it quickly!"

The golden-helmeted sorcerer nods, his hands moving slightly as he called up another spell, seeking to strike at the strength of that unnatural force. "By the wisdom of the ancients, let this force be gone!"

The Silent Hill fog is stubborn and attacks one more time at Harley. Resulting in another body twitch. And then... it is overcome by Fate. And expelled with a dark depressing fog that seems to sit in the air for a long time. And for a moment, the twisted face of Joker can almost be seen.

And then it is gone. Harley's heart rate is still too fast right now for comfort though.

"That was... just freaky," Helena says.

Doctor Mid-Nite, however, has no time for that. "Her heart rate's spiking." He quickly reaches into one of the compartments built into the monitoring equipment, pulling out a syringe and a small bottle.

"This should relax her, without harming her or the baby," he says, preparing to inject her.

Date: 2007-07-14 11:46 pm (UTC)

Her body almost jolts again when he injects her, but it does the trick and relaxs Harley and drops her heart rate to normal. The baby is out of danger.

She looks so peaceful. Her dreams, no longer affected by the Silent Hill fog are calm and collected.

"She is a deeply troubled woman," Fate notes. "Far beyond even these circumstances. Guilt hangs upon her like a veil."

Helena shakes her head. "Maybe. But there's a spark in her, Fate. She's a fighter. She'll find her way, I'm sure of that."

"She's stable," Mid-Nite reports, checking the readings.

What did he expect from everything Harley has been through? Sugar and spice and everything nice?

The readins of the baby was a little strange, now that Mid-Nite looked them over again.

Yes, well, Fate's forte is mystical menaces and he spends most of his time locked up in a tower and channeling the spirit of an ancient god-like being. His people skills are not the best in the world.

Dr. Mid-Nite frowned, his eyes narrowing behind his infra-red goggles. "Strange," he says.

"What?" Helena demands. "Is something wrong?"

"I... can't be certain. The baby looks healthy, but there's something a little off about its vitals and rhythms."

Date: 2007-07-15 12:57 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
No one mentioned the baby was half-vampire, did they? Of course this gave it a weird reading.

Harley was starting to rouse from her peaceful dream.

"Looks like you're be able to ask her yourself, Doc," Helena says.

Date: 2007-07-15 04:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"What... what happened?" Harley came to her senses.

Date: 2007-07-15 04:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"The Doc here did it," Helena says.

"You should be troubled by nightmares no longer, Miss Quinn," Fate adds.

"I do have some concerns, however," Mid-Nite finishes.

Date: 2007-07-15 04:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Correction. I should not be troubled by nightmares caused by that fog again." Harley looked at Fate. "Unless you removed all my natural pain and sorrow."

"Concerns? What concerns?"

Date: 2007-07-15 05:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Any nightmares you have will be wholelly your own," Fate replies. "I would not presume to make such alterations."

Mid-Nite frowns. "Your baby appears to be healthy, but the readings I've gotten are a bit outside human norms."

Date: 2007-07-15 05:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"I appreciate that. Thanks."

"Oh that." Harley looked at Helena, then to Fate and then to Mid-Night. She sighed. "The baby's father is a vampires. Does that explain it a bit?"

Helena isn't too good at masking her shock.

"That's... impossible," Doctor Mid-Nite mutters. "Vampires shouldn't be capable of reproducing. ...Not that I'm calling you a liar, but that simply goes beyond anything I've experienced."

Date: 2007-07-15 05:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Well Spike is sort of a vampire with human qualities right now. He has a soul and can go into the sun and well... can reproduce."

"Funky," Helena says.

Even Fate seems slightly surprised. "As always, the myriad array of worlds never ceases to provide incredible variances."

"It was something we have adjusted to. And honestly, I have been worried about this baby."

"It is a miracle it was created. I am so worried... I have so much stress and anxiety and..." She wipes away tears from her eyes.

"I do not want to lose the baby or Spike."

"Well, as near as I can tell, your baby is perfectly healthy," Mid-Nite says, nodding slightly. "You yourself could do with some recovering... increased sleep, for one thing, but it seems to be a hearty little one."

"Really?" Harley wiped away a few more tears. "Thank you."

"Sleep will be no problem for me now. I still worry about Spike though, he was affected by that fog too."

"I am less certain of how my abilities will affect someone of an already supernatural nature," Fate says. "But I may yet be able to provide an answer..."

"I do not want him to vamp out because of a nightmare. Especially..." Harley sighs, touching her stomach. "Spike would not hurt me. But if these nightmares get worse for him..."

"Anything you could advise..."

Fate considers for a moment longer, and after a moment holds out a hand. A sphere of light appears in it, eventually dissolving into a small statue (

"From my Tower in Salem," he says. "This is a statue of Serapis, an Egyptian God of Dreams. Place this where you slumber, and it should protect you and your beloved."

"Thank you. I will."

"Mid-Nite, I do not suppose you might consider taking me on for the entire stage of my pregnancy? I have not gotten a doctor yet."

The "blind" hero smiles at the request. "I was actually hoping you might ask. I'd be happy too, Ms. Quinn."

"Can't resist a look into the unknown, eh, Doc?" Helena asks.

"Oh thank you!" And yes, he gets Harley-hugged. "And it is Harley. Please and thank you."

"oh and Spike and I do not want to know the sex of the baby. But you can if you want."

This manages to take Doctor Mid-Nite by surprise and gets a laugh out of Helena.

"Harley it is then," he says.

"This is great. Thank you."

"You are a miracle maker, Helena. Now only if you could help me mend things with Bruce." Harley smirked.

Harley paused for a second. "I would introduce you to the Bruce in my dimension, but he would be a lot... darker than the father you knew and grew up in."

"I am sure your father would have been proud of you, Helena."

"Yeah... I've heard that about a lot of the other bat-folk."

She nods. "That's what everyone tells me, but I just have trouble believing it sometimes."
