Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, psychopaths and sociopaths, criminals and detectives!

With Batman:Arkham Asylum still over a month away, I find myself in need of a way to keep my mind of my longing for the game. Because of this, and because if I only work on one thing I eventually get sick of it, I've decided to work on a fanfic whenever I'm not working on my novel.

For this particularly story I've chosen to focus on one of Batman's more powerful but less respected villains, Poison Ivy.
I was inspired by a story I read recently on an fanfiction site featuring Killer Croc. The story was surprisingly deep, intense, and grim for something written by the average Bat fan, and it focused on a villain we don't usually get to see in the spot light.
I wanted to do the same for one of my favorites who often seems to be underestimated by both fans and writers, so I'm taking a trip deep into the darkness of Pamela Eisley's green-tinged madness.

My love for Ms. Eisley runs as deep as the redwoods roots, so I hope to do her a great deal of justice in this tail, and I invite my fellow fans here at the B:AA board to swing over to Fanfiction.net and take a look at my story: Inside Eden's Mind (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5175112/1/Inside_Edens_Mind).

My hope is to earn Pammy a few new fans with the story. If you enjoy it, please leave me a review, if you don't enjoy it leave me a review! I'm a professional writer, I'm used to criticism; as long as you can give me a constructive review (regardless of whether it was fair or negative) I will give it due thought while writing my next chapter.

A fair warning to any who read this story: I've long been fascinated by criminal psychology and the human mind in general and I won't consider this story a success unless I manage to give at least one reader a bad dream about their own garden, or perhaps get an outraged response from someone disapproving of Ivy's male-hatred and/or goddess worship.

She's respected among Bat-fans, but if you go to major comic forums like ComicsShouldBeGood or ComicBookResource there's alot less general knowledge about her. Yes, she's a villainess, yes she's one of the few true meta-humans in Batman's ranks, but most people know her more for killer flytraps and her poisonous lips, and she's become a whole lot more than that - especially in recent years.

Guessing by your handle you're a Croc fan, if you'd like that Croc story I'd be happy to provide it in PMs. I can't link it here because the site is definitely NSFW, and I was rather surprised to have a fellow Batman link me to it and say "Ignore the site it's on and just read the story" I was very glad I did. :)


Oh and Batfan08, just in case you missed it Part 2 is already up, I'm currently working on Part 03 and hope to have it up by this evening.

Anyone else who wants it feel free to speak up, but remember what I said, it is in an adult/erotic fanfiction site; just look past the sites other content and read this story, it's really worth the read in it's entirety.

I'm starting to fear the author may have removed this fanfic from the site to keep it from being associated with all this badly written fanboy erotica... :(

Actually Ivy is one of my most appreciated of the rouges gallery. I think she could be more vile and depraved if writers took their time with her (rather than focusing on her shapely figure).

I would disagree about the appreciation, but then we all have different experiences between ourselves and other Bat/DC fans, personally I've found that most people I encounter know next to nothing about Ivy's capabilities and have no idea just how dangerous she actually is.

I would, however, quite agree with you that any writer that truly takes the time to make a good story with her will be able to do some very amazing, dark, and grim things.

so you keep saying you're currently writing these chapters but are you making it up as you go along or do you have a storyline where you've already laid out?

Game Weasel

so you keep saying you're currently writing these chapters but are you making it up as you go along or do you have a storyline where you've already laid out?

It's a little of Column A and a little of Column B. I find that if I plot out to much of a story then it comes out feeling forced and unnatural, but if I don't have any idea where I'm going then the tale just sort've meanders around until it loses all it's luster and intrigue and collapses face first in the dirt.

A trick of many fiction authors, myself included, is to talk with the star of their story. This is alot easier to do if the character is one you've made up yourself, allowing you to know all the ins and outs, but it's doable with a character from someone else's world.
For this story I've had times where I just sit down at the computer, I write out a question, and then I let "Ivy" answer it. I put myself as close to her mind set as I possibly can and let her provide the answers.

For example, that 'I hate dogs' bit in the story? That whole line of dialogue actually came from her 'voice' in my head suddenly going on a rant about dogs digging up flower beds, and it just made me realize it would be a great bit to add to the story. A lot of my work is really just going with the flow and running with whatever ideas pop up in my mind.

btw, do you know of any actual batman novels? not graphic novels, like written novels.

The only one I'm aware of is No Man's Land, which I believe was written by Warren Ellis in it's novel form. I don't really recall, all I know is that My experience with No Man's Land was through the novel rather than the graphic novel, and having only my own imagination to create the images of a ravaged Gotham City made the story that much darker and unsettling.
At the time I was only about 13 or 14, if I recall properly, and there were times when my own mind would conjure an image so unsettling that I would have to stop reading sometimes for days at a time in order to muster up the will to keep going. The whole story just feels a lot darker and grimmer when you're hearing it for the first time and only your own mind can conjure visuals for it.
Although It wouldn't be quite as intimidating now that I'm older and more in control of my own imagination, I suspect the story would still be quite intense and gripping to read now, especially after witnessing things like 9/11 where we've seen first hand just how terrifying it is to watch skyscrapers tumble from the sky. I can't even begin to imagine the horror and intensity that would be felt in Gotham after the quakes brought dozens of the city's buildings down to their very foundations.

I might give Scarecrow a shot someday, but I'm afraid I don't do requests. I write whatever I'm inspired to write about. This Ivy story was a long time coming, the original idea for it formed in my brain over three years ago, but I was never motivated to actually write it out until recently.

I do have a couple of older stories there on my Fanfiction.net listings, they're focused on an alternate universe where Bruce and Selina eventually married and had a daughter (Helena), and Batman eventually dies in the line of duty. They aren't nearly as in depth as this one is, but they still seem to be fairly popular from those I've heard from who've read the stories.

I've been a practicing pagan from the age of 9 so... I suppose on the one hand no research was necessary because I already knew what I was writing about, and on the other a lot of research was necessary when I was first learning about my chosen faith. :p

You may get a Scarecrow fic out of me, though it likely wouldn't arrive till closer to Halloween.

Game Weasel, how long does the story last? How many chapters will you do?
To quote one of my favorite writing instructors: "Never designate how long a story will be, just write until the story is complete."

A good example of this is J.K. Rowling's work in Harry Potter. She decided on seven books, for the seven years Potter would spend in school. As a result, you can very easily recognize when she hits lulls in her writing, and when a chapter is filler, because she had to have seven books and her publisher's pushed her to make each book longer than the last one. This resulted in a severe decline in the quality of writing; while the story remained entertaining the quality of the actual writing in the latter half of book five, book six, and book seven, took a hit.

Right now I expect my story will be somewhere around 20 chapters, possibly 22 or 23; in which case I'll probably find a way to stretch it out a bit to have an even set like 25.

Cool! Oracle, Batman, Robin and Catwoman all got their own chapter (kind of). Is Ivy really merciful to 'good' humans? Is she willing to rehabilitate - once released, she would be forbidden to use her plant-powers, probably. Would she do it? Is it a trick? Will she free the inmates? Will she destroy Gotham? Will she actually get out at all? Will she and Batman duel to the death in the dark at dusk?

Some right theories, some wrong theories in there. For one, Catwoman has not been mentioned at all in the story thus far. She is not one of the referenced names in the notices the Boss put out for Oracle and the team. ;)

It's more goal to do so before the end of the year. I've had a few editorials published in the paper. and I've won a couple of writing championships here in Texas but I've not found the right place to publish the sort of work I do when it comes to original fiction.

By the way just a heads up for everyone. I do intend to go back and edit all these chapters, I've learned a few new tricks in the process of writing this story. Once I've actually written the whole story I will go back and put the polish to it, and I may even add some bits and pieces here and there.

There are, currently, several "deleted" scenes that I decided to leave out of the story in the interest of keeping it rated Teen. Once I've completed the tale I will most likely go back, change the rating, and add the scenes back into the story.

Thanks for using the tags; and I'm not telling you a thing about whether it is or isn't true.

All I'll say is, DC has never given Ivy and a official backstory except to say that she came from family of wealth and privilege; with that in mind you can be fairly safe assuming those aspects are true.

Sorry for the delays guys and gals. Chapter 19 has been a real pest for me.. I'm rewriting it AGAIN today, this is the fourth time now. Getting this to come out the way I want is becoming quite challenging.
Harley is actually proving to be one of the most difficult characters I've ever had to write, trying to mix between fanatic loyalty, humor, psychosis, and psychiatric intelligence has been extremely difficult, far more than I anticipated. I'd never really contemplated how complex a character she really is till I started trying to write a chapter focused upon her.
I hopefully will have it done by the weekend, I've got alot of free time over the next few days so I should be solid to work on it.
