Action - 508 Ricardo Street

[There was... nothing weird today, nothing to be alarmed about. At least not as far as Pamela Laufeyjarson was concerned. She'd woken up to cook some kind of breakfast for her kids, like she did every day.

She'd cleaned around the house while they were still asleep. Like every day.
She had woken them up, then walked over to wake up her husband, too. Loki needed to get ready if he was going to get to work in time. He had always been a light sleeper, too, so that shouldn't take long.

Like every day.

... Then what was that feeling on her chest? That bothering, nagging feeling that wouldn't let her alone, wouldn't let her breathe at times. What were those flashes-




A kiss. A green clown she hated. A red clown she loved.

Ivy.

...What were those?]


[Phone]

This city... this town is- it really is our town, right? Even with the milk, the trouble it causes...

...I have always been living in here, haven't I?

Maybe I should pay the doctor a visit...


[Action - various]

[Flower shop. Streets. Her garden. Just shopping... You'll find Ivy doing her daily routine- or what she thinks it's her daily routine. She seems normal most of the time... the slightly antisocial, but still overall really nice and definitely plant-crazed neighbor that's been living in the city all her life.

At times, though... she'll just stop. Looking up, frowning... as if there was something she was trying to remember, she knew she was about to remember... but couldn't quite put her finger on it.]

... What about the prom? Do you remember that? You were there for me when Ed ditched me to go save Crane's ass.

Yeah, I was the one who was with Crane remember-

[Shakes her head....]

Ivy that didn't happen!

...Then what happened, Harley? Why do I remember these things, if they aren't true?!

[She's so confused. Yet something tells her- something inside of her knows what Harley is saying is true.]

'Causes this place is nuts!

Look at you Ivy! You're GREEN! If you'd lived here forever, then why are you green!

... There was...

[Flashes. Flashes. Of a life taking care of plants, of an accident going wrong, wrong and her skin switching to embrace the plants, to embrace her life-]

...an accident, I think. In a laboratory.

Why I was in that accident, Harley? I... I have never been a scientist like my dad...

Of course you were! You're some plant scientist person! And now you save plants from people!

I can prove it too!

[Grabs arm to drag you back to her house.]

[...Save plants from people. That sounds so right somehow...]

Where are you going?

[She lets Harley drag her with little resistance, curious about how will she prove it now.]

[Drags you back to her house.]

I found it this morning! When I was lookin' around the house.

[Shoves you onto the couch while she goes and grabs a book and then plunks down next to you. Opens the book to the middle. It's a scrapbook she's made over the years. She points to the Gotham newspaper with the big picture of the two of them and "Queens of Crime" written on it.]

See!

From: [identity profile] poisonivyforyou.livejournal.com
...Queens of... Crime?

[But she's never done something to deserve that title. She always played around, caused some mischief- but nothing serious. She would... never...

...then why was she filled with pride and nostalgia?]

Why don't I remember, Harley?

It's the town. It does stuff like that.

Oh look there's you in Arkham! See right next to Eddie!

[There's a picture of a common room. Ivy's watching tv, Eddie's doing a puzzle while Crane and Jervis play chess in the background.]

...

[Ivy lets her fingers touch the pic, fingers brushing over herself on the pic, then to Ed and Crane and Jervis...]

They were... criminals too? We all were?

...why would I do that? I mean- we are happy here, aren't we? This... this is a good town and-

[She brings a hand to her forehead, massaging it. It hurts.]

But what about the plants!

Date: 2011-07-09 10:52 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] poisonivyforyou.livejournal.com
What about them-

[She growls, because it hurts. She can tell her brain is trying to remember, her whole body is trying to remember yet...]

I... I took care of them. Didn't I?

Date: 2011-07-09 10:43 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crazyclownwoman.livejournal.com
What about them!?

[Looks horrified, so horrified. Grabbing your shoulders.]

But they're your babies! Red, think about all those poor innocent plants! You have to look after them!

From: [identity profile] poisonivyforyou.livejournal.com
Me?! What is little old me going to do against the world, Harley? I just- I work in a flowers shop! I've never left this town! I-

Gaya...

[She's trembling...]

From: [identity profile] crazyclownwoman.livejournal.com
You're going to beat them up! And poison them! And get revenge on people who destroy nature!

Date: 2011-07-10 04:00 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] poisonivyforyou.livejournal.com
...Poison them? I wouldn't even know where to start! I know how to make apple pie, Harley, not to kill people.

Date: 2011-07-10 04:03 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crazyclownwoman.livejournal.com
Yes you can Red! You're a genius!

I- I can't- I'm...


... I'm... Harley, who am I?

[She's on the verge of tears]

I-I'm not, I'm... [She touches the picture again, pulse unsteady.] ...I'm poison Ivy, aren't I? I... Harley, this town is nuts.

Date: 2011-07-13 01:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crazyclownwoman.livejournal.com
It is! And you are Poison Ivy!

[Hugs!]

[She leans into it, slowly recovering]

...I'm... I'm going to get out of this city.
