    Mallory/Jonathan Metropolis civilians!Alt.End.

    The Metropolis Civilians!Alt.End is one of the many alternate endings I have.

    Basically, instead of going to Arlen, Mallory stays in Metropolis since her life before the Wendigo is there. She meets up with her old coven and they're more than happy to reintegrate her back into their ways. Mallory gradually begins to accept the magic part of her ancestry and thus the curse is broken. Mallory and Diane rekindle their friendship, and they begin collaborating on the academy in Metropolis, with the two witches getting Lex Luthor to help fund their schools.

Mallory begins checking in on her parents to help them become better people and to help them break the curse. It is an arduous process, but with the members of Justice League Dark's assistance and Diane's help/enlightening, the Anderson and Sinnet families are eventually free of both the curse of the Wendigo and the bad luck curse.

Such luck leads Jonathan back to Mallory. They accidentally meet up at a local cafe. Jonathan looked horrid, bony and bleeding. He'd gotten mugged on his way out of Gotham, a city he had grown sick of now that his plots weren't flourishing, his fear seemingly erased, his fear toxin weak and nonexistent now that his resources were slim to none, and his most fascinating test subject - his once close confidant - had apparently died. It hadn't helped to find out that Nygma had become a private investigator or that other rogues had also managed to keep themselves well-off and somewhat happy.

Jonathan's shock and mixed feelings were buzzing when he stumbled across Mallory. Mallory explained her cleansing process and, to regain his trust, gave him money, directions to a nice hotel, and, among the roll of dollar bills, a vial of pure Wendigo essence she had managed to persuade Zatanna to give her. However, she did ask Jonathan why he hadn't helped her get rid of the Wendigo, and she preyed on his vulnerable state to further regain his loyalty, giving him the reassurances and support he needed. She repeatedly made it clear that she wished to help him find a better life, and that if she hadn't been told to leave for her own safety, she never would have left his side.

After this display of trust and her loyalty was secured, Crane chose to accept Mallory's help if only to analyse the side effects the Wendigo bestowed upon her. He secretly wouldn't admit it, but he did not want to let her go so easily. The ropes of infatuation, dusty as they were, still clung to him tightly.

Just as Mallory had hoped.

It was only months later, when the couple had finally reached stability and all seemed mercifully normal, that Mallory confessed her plan to Jonathan. 

Jonathan Crane has been manipulated by fear and cowardice and scorn and disgust and thus learned to manipulate by those methods.

Mallory Sinnet was manipulated by love and fear and wariness and beauty and self-preservation, and learned to manipulate those traits.

She, unlike Jonathan, started manipulating others at a very young age thanks to her parents teaching her so/doing the same to others. 

He started doing so in his late teens and stopped altogether, becoming vastly introverted when he secured his short-lived success at Gotham's psychology branch. 

He barely wielded his manipulation skills progressively when he chose to, and as a villain only manages to manipulate negatively with fear and eeriness..

Mallory, on the other hand, wanted to continue honing her manipulation of others and thus strived to familiarize herself with the arts - most specifically acting - and the psychology degree helped as well. 

The Wendigo was a test, and she was certainly intimidated by the fact that she could not manipulate a spirit. And yes, she needed a little shove to help her get better with dealing with it. But it helped her out, it taught her how to stalk and successfully ensnare her prey. It honed her manipulation skills and allowed her to pull of self-preservation stunts she never could have done due to human error and feelings.

Now who would be the more skilled manipulator? Mallory, of course.

It was much better than her acting degree, she just never knew it until Jonathan had helped her realize it. It was then that she began planning. There was no way she was going down so easily without a fight. The Wendigo went along with the intrigue that this certainly hadn't been done before. Every other Anderson had simply laid down and was devoured. If she was going to die - which she wasn't, not by a long shot - she was going to do something meaningful first.

Batman knew this plan. She had told him her plan and he had agreed, even though he was unsure it would work at all. It was a plan to help purge corruption from Gotham, and some of it worked.

Mallory agreed to Crane's offer both because she wanted to get better and because it meant testing out her capabilities on a totally demented sort of mind. 

When she became the wicked witch, Mallory foregoed her ties to Gotham's elite in order to delve into more interesting test subjects.

She - with the Wendigo's help - managed to get the Master of Fear under her thumb. She, a woman of feelings and the occult, managed to get a man of science and fear to to develop a sort of attachment to her - whether he was aware of it or not. 

She didn't even have to mold herself to be someone else he wanted. He was so subconsciously lonely that he welcomed her as her flawed self with open arms when his nightmares became too much for him. He actually adored her for herself - in all her eccentricity and energized creativity. That made her feelings all the more genuine, but it didn't hurt to keep so much from him. It was all for the best.

None of her feelings developed for any of the rogues were lies. Her intentions were shielded, but she left her personality bare to some degree. She was most open and truthful to Crane, but he didn't know half of what went on in her mind.

She allowed him to manipulate her, allowed him to withdraw the cure to further enhance their dependence on one another. She knew he was leading her to what could be her demise if she had't planned out something so properly orchestrated. She did not approve of his methods of revenge - she thought revenge was an utter waste of time - but earned his faithfulness by learning every inch of his mind and committing his orders without question. He barely knew a thing about what went on in her head, and she preferred to keep it that way. The Wendigo, in retaliation to her melting heart, shielded her mind. It was better to be essential than to be in charge.

Yes she wanted her feelings back and certainly did not want to die - but she had to endure the Wendigo long enough for her to gain not only Crane's trust, but most of his devotion and dedication.

Not only would that help her get a cure - so she hoped - but it would allow her to change someone she deeply cared about's life for the better. To mold him into a person he was meant to be, a person he could still be.

The black ice incident was kind of staged. Mallory and the Wendigo planned it out and went with it as soon as they were positive that Jonathan Crane was infatuated with them, and that the Gotham Rogues thought of her as a trusted ally - even, in Harley's case, a best friend.

The Wendigo couldn't stop Justice League Dark's cleansing of Mallory and, as a reward for her cunning outwitting of it, left her with a few perks, such as freezing her appearance to its physical peak, allowing her mind and senses to be relatively sharpened and focused, and other blessings in disguises I mentioned in her character sheet aftermath.

It hurt to leave her hard work to go to Metropolis, and all Mallory could do was hope her hard work had paid off. When Jonathan came to her, she nearly cried in relief because all of that planning was so close to working. She nearly had all she could ever want, doing unbelievable things in the process. It was so risky, and yet things couldn't have been going more greatly.

Once Mallory had spit her guts out to Crane, she left him alone to think. Least to say, he was flabbergasted. No-one had ever done something like that to him in all his life. No-one had gone to such extreme lengths to ensure his happiness and safety, no-one had tolerated him, identified with him on such a personal level, adored him as she did and still managed to keep her secrets hidden so well from him, nor had anyone manipulated and tormented him so horribly.

Mallory Kieran Sinnet impacted Jonathan Crane so profoundly that he stayed, utterly beguiled. And they were /"normally"/ happy and successful ever since. Jonathan, now under the alias of Johannson Crowley (I'm still working on the name), earned a teaching spot at Metropolis Universities' psychology branch, helping his wife, Mallory Crowley, with her books and horror show/movie pitches. Mallory put her acting talents to good use, and the two flourished among Metropolis' community, though they did unsettle some with their morbid tastes.

Um, what else? The two were married on Halloween and attempted unsuccessfully to produce children, suffering the same fate Mallory's parents had. They stopped trying after their third miscarriage, and instead, upon Crane's insistence, adopted Giles Corey and Annabelle, two infants who, due to the mothers' request, were going to be shipped off to an orphanage in Arlen.

That's all for now. Fanfics will be written soon enough.

Now that that's explained, onto the memes!

    Who holds:

    The umbrella, when it rains - Jonathan. He usually hogs it to himself. Mallory adores the rain so she doesn't mind at all. Though            Jon tries to stay dry, Mallory always ends up hugging him at some point, getting his clothes soaked. He doesn't pull away too much      now that they've been in a relationship for years.

    The popcorn at the cinema - Mallory. Jon doesn't eat much popcorn. He holds the candy instead.

    The baby, when it cries - Mallory during the day and Jonathan during the night. Jonathan is a bit more affectionate with the kids at        night, having nothing else better to do when his insomnia kicks in.

    The ice cream cone, when they share - Mallory. They rarely share ice cream, though. They only do so when they pretend to be one        of those lovey-dovey couples for appearance sake.

    The remote, when they sit down to watch a movie - Jonathan, your resident control freak, /always/ holds the remote.

    The basket, when they go shopping - Jonathan. Mallory would, but she is too busy picking out the many ingredients she uses in her     vegetarian culinary pursuits.

    The door, on dates - They take turns.

    The other’s hand, most often - Mallory reaches out to hold Jonathan's hand frequently, but it is Jonathan who keeps the hold going        on. He is unbelievably clingy when he is allowed to be.

    Their breath, upon seeing the other on their wedding day - Jonathan. He had trouble believing that he was actually getting married     in the first place.

    The camera, when they take pictures together - Jonathan. Again, resident control freak. Plus photography is totally his hobby when     he feels like it.

        Who made the first move; Mallory by proving her loyalty. Jonathan sealed the deal, though.

        Who said ‘I love you’ first; Easy; Mallory. Jonathan was relentlessly guarded with the words and never said it until he was                  positive that they wouldn't ever be parted again.

        How often they fight; They try not to fight much. Mallory often communicated well enough with Jonathan to prevent fights, but           Jonathan still hadn't mastered that very well. They get into fights sometimes about things such as work overloads and whenever         they're both totally stressed about work or people. Their arguments range from ridiculous little things to completely serious               matters.

        For instance, when they found out that G.C. and Annabelle were witches and had powers, the two had an argument about what           to do. They ended up consulting Diane for advice and doing their best to follow it.

        And a week later they were arguing about whether Dandy from American Horror Story was a complex character or not.

        Who's big spoon/little spoon; Should be obvious, given their physiques. Jon/Mal.

        What their nicknames are for each other; Mallory switches between "Jon-Jon" and "Pumpkin." Jonathan switches between                    "Coppertop" and "Witch." The term "Ragdoll" is an insult in Mallory's opinion, so that nickname is used in particularly heated                 arguments. In an argument, Mallory lashes out back with the nickname "Farm boy."

        Who's the better cook; Mallory had formal training, so she is. Jonathan succeeds in burning toast, but can brew coffee well.

        Their song; I'm not really sure, but there is a fear family playlist by Yoruhoshi on Grooveshark. Here it                                                is: grooveshark.com/#!/playlist/Fe…

        Who remembers their anniversaries; Mallory was the one who remembered their anniversaries at first, doing small things like            unexpected scavenger hunts and horror movie marathons and late night horror game binges. But as their relationship                        progressed, it's Jonathan who acutely remembered things like birthdays and anniversaries to the extent that everything he                planned out (/if/ he even plans something out because sometimes he forgets or just procrastinates 'cause he has work to do)            has to be perfect; nothing can go wrong or else he'll just grow frustrated and sulky.

        Their favorite thing to do together (besides sex); Talk about morbid stuff.
After years of struggle and the Scarecrow withholding the cure he had promised, the Wendigo took its toll on Mallory, very nearly succeeding in devouring her soul and fully taking control of her body. Well, if she hadn't succeeded in freezing the Wendigo and herself in black ice before it did the job. Since this was during a very big heist, once Batman saw the state she was in, he took her to Justice League Dark for assistance on this supernatural entity. Signs of life were quick to surface, much to their relief. It took three months for the ice to thaw and the remaining six for them to safely purge the Wendigo from her system. Mallory stayed with the JLD for a few more months to fully recuperate from such a jarring spiritual invasion. The after effects were monitored - a shard of ice was nestled deep into her heart, allowing her cold breath and cool temperature to stay, along with slight wind-walking abilities and a control on the cold weather. Because of her experience, Mallory earned a vast knowledge of the occult and witchcraft, was ever so slowly reaching a physical peak, her hunting and cooking had improved and she could, with much concentration and study, replicate people's voices to a startling degree. Not to mention that she had a much stronger self-confidence and backbone than ever before from surviving the ordeal. But the nightmares remained vivid, she continued to sleep walk, the Wendigo was still the great fear she had, on certain nights she got unbearable chills, was often plagued with pneumonia and hypothermia, anxiety and loneliness darkened her thoughts, and often had to fight the urge to slip back into her old hobbies of butchering people, eating them, and making things with the remains. It was no surprise that she swore herself off of any meat, visibly getting ill as old memories resurfaced.

Her living circumstances changed drastically as well. Because of the stress and mental instability living in Gotham would surely cause her - not to mention the eventual temptation of returning to the Scarecrow's side - she left Gotham, instead going to stay in her grandparents house in Arlen, Georgia. Mallory often got visits from a few of the JLD members and, on occasion, the government to monitor her progress. Things had been going smoothly as she took small jobs of helping in the town library, teaching the deaf, offering counseling, gardening, baking, and other little things to keep her occupied.

It was a quiet life, no doubt, so she added pets first. At first strays, then two attack dogs (a Doberman named Celyn and a German Shepard named Luitguard) and two cats (a black cat named Salem and a ginger named Phoebe) were permanently situated in her home.

Then, she decided to take it one step further when animals weren't enough. Two orphaned siblings named Annabelle and Giles Corey were introduced into the household. When Christmas passed, along with a slightly reluctant visit to Gotham to recap with the Batman on her activities, Mallory ran into a boy in his teens. His original name was Sebastian Basillio and he was on the run from the Scarecrow. Originally from a very poor crime-ridden family, Sebastian had begun working for the Scarecrow months prior as a lackey when his parents were killed in a shooting. Mallory and her children found him running off because he feared that they were after him too and because he felt he had the opportunity for a clean slate without others to tie him down. So, since he recognized her vaguely as having worked for the Scarecrow previously and having become well off since cutting ties with him, Sebastian persuaded her to take him under her wing. He'd been living with them ever since, renamed as Edgar.

Unbeknownst to Mallory, she now harbored three descendants of the true Salem Witches of 1692, including the descendant of the witch who had bestowed the curse of misfortune on her family. When their powers began to show, Mallory sunk in the realization that there was such thing as magic and that she was very much deep in it. When Annabelle began urging her to believe that she too was a witch like them (despite Edgar's more scientific approach to the idea), reminding her that the after effects the Wendigo left on her were forms of witchcraft and that the hallucinations she saw were not hallucinations but moments where she saw a mix between the supernatural plane and their plane of existence, Mallory's luck changed. A power changed, the power that had once been a surreal bad luck that could barely be controlled broadened to bring luck or misfortune to others. The curse was broken, no longer effecting only her, but if she wished it good or bad luck would be inflicted on others. The repercussions had not yet been made clear.

Shortly after she was cured, Mallory began talking to Zatanna about her experiences and, after she showed much more improvement, was encouraged to write a book on her life and misadventures to reflect and publish if she felt ready. Ever since that was discussed, Mallory began writing. It was only after she got her life together that she submitted it for publishing. However, she made it specifically clear that she would not be returning to Gotham under any circumstances.

Once it was known that she was living a healthy life and that her book had been a major success (despite being regarded as a piece of fiction by many) well enough to ensure that she and her children would live very nicely, Mallory was contacted by Diane McBerkley, the leader of the Salem Witch Coven Mallory had abandoned due to the Wendigo’s control, and now the official headmistress of Miss Harvikov’s Academy for Witches and Warlocks in New Orleans which was under the guise of a boarding school. Athena Blight’s Academy for Young Scholars. She was an old friend to help guide Mallory and her children back to their roots just when they needed it most.

By email, Diane told Mallory that she had read her book and suspected that surviving the Wendigo ordeal had left her with many supernatural abilities, allowing her to break the curse once she gave credit to magic that her ancestor had attempted to hide, and that such an odd way of gaining those powers had to be researched by actual witches like herself. There could have been many untapped abilities that had yet to surface from dramatic events, and the witches of the Salem Witch Coven could help with her discovery of said abilities. She could help them as well by helping the Academy spread their influence to other young witches, perhaps by setting up an academy in rlen.

Diane shared her story of how losing her sight and then using magic to regain it not only gave her the ability to see visions of the past and the future but allowed her to keep it as a reward for helping herself regain her sight, and that such triggering events could cause powers to arise in a witch. She requested a visit, once again bringing up the ways she could help the coven and they could help her, how they wanted her and these children back among their ranks.

The two met up in the privacy of Mallory’s home. After a long talk involving the history of the Coven and others like it (one exactly like, the conversation eventually lead to the creation of the Academy and the witches’ goal to instill healthy doses of confidence in new aspiring witches and warlocks so that they may flourish and help those around them, with the possibility of unleashing their presence in the world as a positive force and not some sort of cult in the future.

Pretty soon, plans were set to create an academy for witches and warlocks in Arlen. Eventually, after Mallory and her children were tutored by Diane on the ways of the witch (which wasn't too hard since Mallory had plenty of training with the children in her spare time and had done much research.) a school was opened in Arlen’s woods, with careful instructions on seclusion and privacy for the witches and warlocks staying there, with Mallory as the headmistress with Diane occasionally checking in. It didn't take too long for witches and warlocks to come flocking to Arlen, appealed with its seclusion and privacy.

Unfortunately, Dine arrived shortly after Jonathan Crane did.

The man had finally tracked her down after years of debating internally, of perfecting his toxin, of attempting to persuade himself that he did not care, then obsessing about it when all of the work he did was finished - when crime began getting stale and the fear seemed too repetitive with hardly anything to startle him, when bruises and failures marred his future as a villain, when there was no one to manipulate as well as he had nearly succeeded with her.

At first, the attack dogs and the children (especially the children) alarmed him - they did not scare him, he emphasized later on, when he had come to. His goal was to scare the woman and kidnap her until he forced her to shed her life as a civilian and go back to her old ways.

So, he crept into the house in the dead of night, vaguely remembering its layout from his younger years, but unaware of what resided in the rooms. At first he had thought that it was only Mallory in the house. His pride in the impact that he had on her got in the way of his research - which he admittedly didn't do much of because "honestly, how much would she have changed? It hasn't been too long and I am a big part of her life. She can't have changed." He found her in what had been her grandparents room, with her familiar restraints clamped onto her limbs. The sight brought a crooked grin onto his lips. See, nothing had changed.

And since they were so far away from prying neighbors, she could be kept prisoner in her own house, he would make up excuses of her absence, and pretty soon they would be back in Gotham, just like the good old days. He was wrong, he knew, because the Wendigo was gone, but the Scarecrow was not about to let that stop him. He would find a way to keep that spark of fear alive in his bones, even if that meant creating a monster in the process. Whether the base would be Mallory was unclear, but he would have her by his side and he would feel as if he had accomplished something, even if it was only regaining her. He would not be alone; he would have something to look forward to and an excellent defender - he hoped, sick of broken bones and empty stomachs.

He was in her bedroom easily enough. His steps alerted the animals Crane was quickly tackled by one of the mutts. His yell alerted the children and the sound of footsteps nearly gave the man a heart attack. Who in the world was inside his house? A burglar? Certainly not a roommate, or another man. Crane whipped around, expecting to find a clone of Bo Griggs, or another familiar face from his bullied days.

When a tall, lanky boy with thick-rimmed black spectacles and tousled black hair ran through the door with a shotgun in is hand, Crane felt is mouth to dry. In his frazzled state, he thought he saw a younger version of himself, the only dissimilarities being the wide grey blue eyes and the boy being well fed. If he hadn't let his shock get the best of him, he would have noticed the fact that the boy's skin was a very pale shade of brown and that his lips were too plump to belong to either Jonathan or Mallory. Then, the attack dog on top of Jonathan barked.

"Good boy, Celyn!" A girl no older than nine had shouted, entering the room with another dog at her side. Crane groaned in pain and exasperation. There were more? Another bark made him grit is teeth as he attempted to push the dog away. His legs were too long to shove the dog off of him with his feet, so he was firmly planted there.

Reluctantly, the man turned his head, glaring and hissing out in defense when his fear canister was knocked out of his grasp. The teen from earlier pointed the shotgun at Crane's head, making the man laugh in disbelief until the safety was taken off.

"What are you doing in our house and what did you do to our mother?" Suddenly three faces peered down at him. The younger boy had an expression of odd detachment, though a flicker of amusement ghosted in his eyes. He was the one who ripped off the mask from Crane's face, appeared befuddled when he saw him. The older boy stiffened, clutching the gun tighter and muttering curses under his hitching breath. The girl, who looked so much like Mallory that it hurt, peered down at Crane with tentative interest, by far the most closest. Their noses nearly touched.

"Boo!" He snarled like the trapped animal he found himself as. The girl grinned and fell into a batch of giggles before returning the scaring tactic in kind as she steered the other dog towards the professor. The man did not wince when it and the dog pinning him down bared their teeth at him.

He did, however, scream when he was nearly shot in the leg by the impudent younger boy, whose red-brown curls bobbed as the boy veered back from the blast. His laugh was grating, nearly maddening due to its pitch and intensity. That was when he was smacked in the head with the shotgun, knocked unconscious.

When he came to, the antidote had been administered and he was tied to a chair in the kitchen. After a long interrogation and a series of conflicts, Mallory persuaded Crane to stay with hem under the promise that he was not to bring any of them into his wicked schemes. She made it specifically clear that she was done with it, but that she also did not want him out of her life. Mallory felt that the children would do as much good for Crane as they had for her, and yearned to give him a new start - especially with her. He had taught her so much and had stuck by her throughout her rocky moments, and it did not feel right to simply drop him now that she was better. He meant too much to her, and it hit her right then.

So, once Mallory had pleaded him to stay, had told him countless times that she had never meant to leave him and that if she hadn't been forced to she would never had, and had told him that he could do so much more without the Batman around, Crane stayed. Though he took the whole lack of Batman thing completely in the wrong way and began teaching again in order to gain a cult following via his students with threats about how he could give and take their fears, eventually having Arlen in the palm of his hand due to him terrorizing, enslaving and killing many who stood in his way. Eventually he spread his influence and became super serious business in Georgia, with Edgar prepping to be his successor.

As Crane's cult was barely sprouting, Cordelia came to visit. She and Mallory talked about opening more schools since New Orleans' Miss Robicheaux's was the only one remaining. Eventually, after Mallory and her children were tutored by Cordelia on the ways of the witch (which wasn't too hard since Mallory had plenty of training with the children in her spare time and had done much research with Zatanna as a teacher of sorts. The only thing difficult was that Crane would not allow her to leave to Metropolis to see Diane's academy, nor could he be tied with Mallory during Cordelia's visits because that alone would turn out disastrous) one was opened in Arlen's woods, with careful instructions on seclusion and privacy for young witches, with Mallory as the temporary headmistress with Cordelia occasionally checking in. Zatanna was thrilled when she found out, fascinated and proud of the success the school was.

Pre-Wendigo Period:

Mallory was very free spirited, very quirky.

Not very prone to complaining.

A bit arrogant.

A total wilderness child. Super out-doorsy and energetic.

Quiet and pensive when alone, but very talkative and caring with others around - no matter how artificial it could be.

Only slightly paranoid.

Quite cautious.

Laid-back when she could afford to relax.

A bit gullible.

Over-thinker.

Spaces out.

Cheerful and attempts to be a social sweetheart to so many people to make up for her bad luck streak.

Studious and kind of geeky.

Pessimistic about herself, but optimistic when it comes to other people, wanting to help others to establish strong influential ties.

Curious about the occult. She thinks it’s cool and wants to learn more about it. It is the beginning of what grows to be a very strong obsession as she grows older.

She pursued her civilian hobbies when she had the time/was in the mood, but didn’t rely on them as heavily as she does now.

Wendigo Period/Pre-witch period:

Arrogance toned down drastically.

Ruthless and harsh.

Manipulative.

Couldn’t properly display emotions because of her ‘icy heart’ aka the Wendigo blocking her emotions.

Jittery, untrustworthy, paranoid.

Feared getting close to others and became guarded around nearly everyone.

Negative and low self-esteem.

Elegant.

Alert in a skittish, trying-not-to-fall-asleep sort of way.

Dependent and desperate.

Hesitant.

Sly and quick-witted.

Bit of a liar.

Antisocial unless it worked in her favor.

Ruthless.

Despairing and regretful over her actions.

Sharp-minded.

Selfish.

A bit easier to anger, though it wasn’t obvious that she was angry.

Mental state became very, very fragile.

Thawing Heart Period/Witch Period/Black Ice Incident Period:

Arrogance recovered slowly, although more moderate.

Became very loyal to those ‘close’ to her.

Emotions became more stable and solid.

Still a bit paranoid since the Wendigo wasn’t completely out.

Bold and adventurous since free from laws, although in a subtle (sometimes not so subtle) way.

Starts taking people’s feelings and consideration into account, but such behavior is very, very selective.

Serious if work has to be done.

Guarded and wary of the criminals around her.

Still slightly hesitant to get close to others because she wasn’t fully sure the Wendigo’s influence had gone away, but she opened up more than she did when the Wendigo was more prominent.

Pursues her hobbies, especially her “corpse art”, very frequently - although sometimes it’s now to help/please others as much as she does to herself.

Has bouts of depression and/or sullen attitude and/or insanity depending on the Wendigo’s power. If the Wendigo exerts itself onto her spirit, the only thing she will be able to convey about herself is overwhelming anguish, fear, and crippling helplessness.

With the Wendigo, there is simply bloodlust with many calculating moves. It is rather chaotic during this period, but calculatingly so, having the mind of a hunter with nearly anything. It does a lot of intimidating in various unsettling ways.

The Wendigo comes along randomly, but when it can, the damage is horrible if it is a long period of time, because it is trying so hard to exert its power to keep its flickering state. Mallory’s soul deteriorates faster the longer it has control now. It’s do-or-die for the two of them.

Traits Developed in the Obliterated Wendigo Period and/or One with Her Coven Period

Sees self as an educator.

Firm and dislikes quitters.

Logical and calculating when discussing upper serious matters.

Carefree and opinionated.

Fully content with herself/At peace with her past, unsavory actions. Yet she still fears going through the horror again.

Is a lot more responsible when it comes to people’s safety and feelings.

Hardworking.

Manipulative when the situation calls for it.

Resourceful.

Selfishness became toned down to a moderate rate.

A lot more enthusiastic and an avid pursuer of her hobbies.

Slowly regained control of her mental stability.

Became courageous and less fearful.

Still cautious. Less reckless, more thinking-before-doing.

She has a sort of healthy glow about her. She is grateful for the lessons her torment has taught her and has a real “you can totally change your fate at any time so long as you’re willing” attitude.

*Ever-lasting traits:

Developed psychopathic tendencies since she was a child, namely the lack of remorse for others and recluse behavior. Only remorseful and truly cares for those who have had a strong impact on her or who she feels truly need her help. Cares for other people, but it is only skin deep or for manipulative purposes no matter the circumstances. It slowly gets better as her heart thaws and she has a tight-knit circle of supporters.

Is adept at stroking people’s egos and seeing the best of people, although she may not be as heartfelt with her compliments in her post Wendigo period and Wendigo period. The only person she truly and honestly admires/compliments is Crane when she is the Wicked Witch.

Is a people person, though with post-Wendigo Mallory it depends on the people and it is nearly non-existent with Wendigo Mallory.

Analyses others and remains interested in psychology.

Doesn’t truly believe people are pure evil.

Strong morals.

Loves a good chase.

Became much more refined and cultured as time went on.

Intelligent

Curious.

Morbid/gothic set of mind.

Polite.

Persuasive.

Able to see both sides of an argument.

Ambitious.

Pacifist unless it is about something that she strongly believes in.

Truly let’s loose only with those she is comfortable with.

Became critical and much classier during both the post-Wendigo and Wendigo periods.

Adores crowds and theatrics. This really shows during her post-wendigo period and so on.

She is a real nature lover, is protective about animals and the environment. It stems from her father’s side of the family, where he was taught that nature was to be respected by his elders. Their hunting must treat nature with honor, which is partially why Mallory consumes trespassers in her woods in her Wendigo period and post-Wendigo period.

Both sides of the family taught Mallory to value her heritage, so she is constantly dabbling in her magic-upbringing roots and has a vast knowledge of her family’s historical significances.

Very superstitious.
Winifred Clemenson, despite her clear Irish descent, had been born in Salem, Massachusetts until her parents, who had worked from being dirt-poor to well-off in a span of years, decided to raise their children in a nearby small town in the South with Winnie’s three brothers. She had always been drilled on her family’s part in Massachusetts’s history and gleaned much knowledge due to it. Her parents, old-fashioned as they were, had been strict and harsh with punishment, but were fair and good-intentioned as parents, implanting solid - though not always technically correct - morals into their children’s heads.

Maldue Sinnet had been born and raised in Scotland until he was sixteen when he and his family immigrated to America - more specifically Boston, Massachusetts. He came from a barely middle-class family scrounging by and was accustomed to working hard. He was always taught to value nature and nature activities were very prominent in his lifestyle. Maldue’s family were strongly tied to the Scottish Witch Trials of the 1640’s through 1650’s, both as judges and enforcers, and as magic practitioners. He was raised to be a skeptical believer of the paranormal and his grandmother back in Scotland had written him a family grimoire to take with him to America.

The two met occasionally at the Salem library where Maldue worked part time and Winnie studied during their college years. It took a while for the two to meet, let alone feel comfortable around one-another, but their shared values and intelligence brought them together rather well. It, along with the strong connections to the past their families shared, shaped a close and nurturing bond between the two, cultivating their marriage after a few years.

The couple had tried time and time again to produce a child, suffering miscarriages and underdeveloped fetuses which died either before they could be born or soon after the birthing process was completed. One little girl was their last chance and, with much hope, she had survived.

Mallory Kieran Sinnet had trouble from the start, born prematurely on a cloudy October the sixth. Maldue and Winnie Sinnet’s final and surviving newborn had many health problems, and was said that she wouldn’t last long. She did, despite the complications, but her survival came with a heavy price. Alongside her numerous health’s malfunctions, the girl had a bad luck streak. It seemed that something horrid would occur whenever Mallory was around.

As a child, little Mal was ignored by adults and children alike, aside from her parents. The girl got hurt and sick frequently, as a result of her prematurity and bad luck streak. She began to fear loneliness and, as she grew older, hospitals. She was sent to a hospital to deal with her illnesses and injuries. Mallory was prone to having nightmares and sleepwalking, but her parents were supportive of her despite her faults and fears. Her father taught her sign language in order to converse with her deaf mother, and since they moved a lot she was mostly homeschooled. She got a taste of school on-and-off and was bullied or ignored by her peers for her naivety, her being so unfamiliar and foreign, and her mature nature. She was timid at first and stuck to herself. She wasn’t used to socializing much, especially with people she clearly felt uncomfortable with. That never went away, unfortunately.

When she became a certain age, Mallory and her parents moved from their secluded little wooden cabin and to the bustling city of Metropolis. Although fresh air was good for her fragile health, the girl needed advanced hospitals, and Wayne hospital care had opened in Gotham, the nearest place to Metropolis. Not to mention that it was the place Mister Sinnet had recently gotten assigned to. With the treatment and new environment, Mallory had been adjusting to life with them in the cities well enough. She liked and was fascinated with such a new environment. Luckily, her parents had managed to move near a wooden area where the teenage girl was free to roam and play. When she was healthy enough to go outside (which she would be once she was ten and up until age 17 until the sickness hit and college piled up), she couldn’t always explore so she settled with dancing. She did to make chores and practicing chi-blocking entertaining. Mallory relished in the movement, especially when she was out of her confinement in hospitals or houses.

Her father urged her to get into the arts, enrolling her into dance classes, sculpting classes, painting classes, writing classes, theatre classes, music classes and such. This hunger for elegance was brought on once Mister Sinnet’s importance became more prominent in Wayne Industries and even allowed him to befriend the Luthors. It affected the whole family’s mannerisms, and, when the option was presented by the Wayne’s, Mallory was enrolled into the best high school Metropolis had to offer, the likes of which where children like Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor learned. Classical music occasionally echoed throughout the cabin, lavish-looking meals were prepared after being hunted, and Mallory’s parents were whisked off to parties hosted by the Wayne’s themselves, leaving Mallory alone to her studies and watch whatever black and white sitcom was showing. At said parties, Mallory was talked about, but rarely introduced, for fear that her bad luck would hurt her father’s reputation. No spite was shown from either parents or child, since they were so close.

When Mallory was eleven, the Sinnet’s met the McBerkley’s and their fifteen year old daughter, Diane, who was prepping to be the leader of the coven of the descendants of witches persecuted during the Salem witch trials. Mallory’s grandparents had been urging the families to meet for that very reason. The two girls were inseparable once the McBerkleys moved next door to the Sinnets and the Sinnets became part of the coven, which was a community of sorts located in a secluded hideaway in the outskirts of Metropolis..

When her parents had settled into Metropolis and the coven, Mallory began going to Georgia every summer with her parents, living a bit away from the Keeny Manor. Mallory visited Georgia to meet up with her mother’s parents, who educated her on her link to the Salem Witch trials & Massachusetts’ history. They did this to every younger generation who visited them, which was why visits were scarce, but no talk of curses were mentioned unless behind closed doors with only adults. Magic and spells, however, were an exception and were practiced.

Winnie’s parents did not hate Mallory exactly, but were wary of her, keeping her outside so that she wouldn’t break anything, or in her room watching black and white movies, so that she wouldn’t break anything that wasn’t hers.

During that time, dreams about Mallory’s ancestors, mainly one named Kieran Delaney and the tortures she went through during the Salem Witch Trials, became vivid; so vivid, in fact, that without her sleepwalking restraints, Mallory found herself with a noose tied around her neck or trudging deeper into a lake, weighed down with stones tied to her limbs. This went on until college, to the point where the Salem Witch Trials torture methods terrified and fascinated her. She was lucky that many others in her coven suffered through the same trauma, making them all the more easier to talk to.

But, there was some benefits to be had in Georgia. As the years went by a companionship gradually began forming between Marion Keeny’s Jonny-boy and she. They had become good acquaintances, and then later became companions. They knew more about each other than they cared to let on, but didn’t pry unless it was felt necessary. If told by the other to not do anything about something, they would respect the others wishes and do nothing but analyze. They analyzed the other during their time together, silently indulging in their thirst to understand one of the many human minds. They answered each other’s questions carefully, both cautious but intrigued. The Keeny boy eventually realized how well off his summer neighbor was and how she influenced him, giving him a taste of his soon to be swollen ego by filling his head with fantasies of having the knowledge and cultured experiences she had.

So, he stuck around for the sake of knowledge and experiences, taking part in painting and other arts when he could sneak away, also because she was the only kid his age for miles and was teased just as much as he was during those Arlen summers for her city ways, naivety, and her rosy skin pigment that, when she was particularly embarrassed, would flare up in a hue that matched her ‘odd’ hair color, earning her taunts such as ‘Carrie’, ‘Bloody Mary’, and ‘Cherry Face’. When that final summer passed, the two kept in touch via email and phone calls.

In high school Mal felt somewhat normal, as her doctor visits decreased and she could now stay in an area for a long amount of time. But, soon enough, she was back in the hospital. She was monitored because a particularly bad sickness came upon her, causing severe anxiety attacks to the point where she felt nauseous, threw up, or began hallucinating, and she was sleepwalking at longer distances. She stayed in the hospital for the duration of her senior year, sending college applications anyway. Once she was out of the hospital, Mallory found that she had been accepted to one of the colleges she had applied for, Gotham University. Everything seemed great at the time, or so she thought. Mal attended college and got a doctorate’s degree in psychology, theatre, and literature, with a masters in music and other arts.

When Mallory was twenty-three, she had slept walked, this time dreaming of snow and a hideous creature. When she awoke, Mallory found herself in the nearby woods. She got lost but carefully ate snacks her parents had given her. This lasted for at least a month, but he got by with what tricks her father had taught her. At night, that thing came, that demon. It looked horrible, with a bloodied claws and huge eyes, the pupils dilated. Mallory screamed and tried to escape when the beast charged at her. She couldn’t and threw things at it in desperation. On one fatal night, it ate the snacks she had before going into her body.

Later, Mal was found and taken to the hospital. She brushed the incident off, thinking that she was probably hallucinating. Her parents doted on her when she was released and everything seemed to go back to normal. The hunger pains started within a week with the dreams of the ice and the creature she had seen in the woods becoming more frequent. Then, on a stormy Monday, she lost control of her body, changing, and the Wendigo hunted for the first time.

After Monday, Mallory found out that throughout her life, her parents had been tampering with her meals, subtly placing bits of human body parts into said meals to prepare her for becoming one with a Wendigo. That duty had to be passed on to a member of the family (or more) for each generation, thanks to a bad luck curse a witch of the Salem witch trials cast as revenge for one of Mallory’s ancestor’s, Kieran Delaney, ratting them out to avoid being hung (although that didn’t work). Kieran’s successors found a way around the curse eventually, but it wasn’t totally in their favor.

They would sacrifice a relative or more from each generation who possessed the ‘jinx’ to act as a host for one of the many Wendigos in need of a host and unable to/being too weak or old to use their own body in exchange for the curse of eternal jinx to not spread throughout the whole family. The ancestors didn’t know a lot about the Wendigo, but continued to sacrifice unlucky family members because they felt it was their only hope. But, during later years they gained knowledge of what exactly the Wendigo was by research and, eventually, meeting with a tribe who educated them on the beast. But, that didn’t help solve how to stop the bad luck, so, despite knowing about the Wendigo, they continued with their method. The relationship between the Wendigo and its host was purely symbiotic, considering that not only did the Wendigo keep away the bad luck, but it allowed for its powers to be used if they could control the Wendigo, although some were horror for the host.

At this revelation, Mallory was horrified and was kept at home for a month. In that period of time she learned to control herself and the demon inside her. She learned how to regulate her eating habits, learned what she had become, what abilities she now possessed, and what she had to suffer through. After the month was up, Mallory began working again, doing odd jobs such as helping out in Gotham’s library, writing short horror stories under an anonymous alias, among other things. Once done with college, Mallory went back to Gotham and stayed in an apartment while looking for a job. Her mother brought her meals once a week and she kept in touch with Crane. However, their interactions stopped abruptly when Crane was fired from Arkham. The girl tried to contact him, but none of her attempts were answered. Jonathan was too busy trying to get revenge and perfect his fear toxin. He attempted to contact her later on, but it was during the time that she was adjusting to her Wendigo state. Eventually, both of them decided that it was too late, a bit awkward, and risky to continue contacting each other. They were both too busy and didn’t want the other to know what they had become. Mallory was in her mid-twenties (25) when they broke contact. Crane was twenty-six. Mallory had been working for an asylum in Metropolis at the time before being transferred to Arkham Asylum once there was a staff shortage.

At age thirty, Mallory earned a top job as a psychiatrist at Arkham, seeing the Mad Hatter, Harvey ‘Two-Face’ Dent, the Scarecrow, and Harley Quinn, among others, regularly. Mallory had recognized Jonathan’s voice from the phone calls they had shared and had a hunch that the self-proclaimed master of fear was her old friend, but never acted upon it for fear of it being unprofessional and that he’d not really be the man she had talked with back in college, that Crane would only use her vulnerability against her. She was able to see their side of things, which made her a valuable asset. As a psychiatrist, she was often asked by the police to examine a crime scene and help them figure out whoever did such deeds, or help interrogate a victim or suspect with psychological issues. She was one of their preferred psychologists.

Batman found out her secret, for he had run into the Wendigo on numerous occasions. He had at some point captured the Wendigo to keep it from eating any more pedestrians. The caped crusader was only mildly surprised when he found out that she was the host of the Wendigo, but once he saw her disheveled, fearful state, the caped crusader offered to help her find a cure. She accepted, refusing his urging to quit her job at Arkham Asylum, and they hadn’t spoken of that night again.

Crane, while looking for animals to test his fear gas on, ran into her when she was controlled by the Wendigo. It nearly killed him, but he managed to wound it and capture it, keeping it prisoner in his basement, specifically in a cage in that was made out of multiple metals and heavy amounts of silver he used for aggressive, physically superior patients and patients with claustrophobia until the transformation wore off. At first, Crane was fascinated by the nature of the Wendigo. Then, he began plotting and researching, finding out more about what he later knew was the Wendigo. He knew that when he managed to control the creature, it would be easy to procure test subjects for his fear toxin experiments and instill Gotham with fear. With this creature, he would be unstoppable so long as its weaknesses were left unknown. Even better, perhaps he could replicate the Wendigo’s physical state in himself. That would be enough to get rid of the bat and bring Gotham to its knees.

Unfortunately, things got complicated when Crane found out that the Wendigo had to be hosted by someone. Now Crane couldn’t help but feel envious that this woman could hold such power and instill fear so easily in people. His envy turned into hatred when he realized that she had a pathological fear of it. Nevertheless, Crane stuck to his idea. He would just have to offer her something she wouldn’t be able to refuse. He could tell by her desperation and feelings towards the Wendigo that she would want an antidote. He would procure one if she did what he asked when he asked it. Still choosing to look at the monster, Crane didn’t recognize his long ago summer neighbor. He recognized her, but he didn’t know from where, nor did he exactly care. Just so long as he had the monster within her in his control.

At first, Mallory was reluctant to help the Scarecrow. But even though Batman had offered to help her (in order to keep Gotham citizens safe) he hadn’t told her anything of the antidote. Besides, it would do good to have a back-up and hopefully Crane would give her the details Batman wouldn’t. So now Mallory help began helping the Scarecrow when he needed her to. If she did not, she received no antidote. However, Crane had been deceiving her. His alleged “cure” was actually intended to translate the Wendigo’s powers to himself, or manipulate the Wendigo to do his bidding. Perhaps, his “cure” was designed as a virus that adopts the Wendigo’s characteristics and pass them onto others. (Whichever is better.) Thus this prolonged his time with the Wendigo, allowing him to analyze its characteristics thoroughly. He needed the creature to help him take care of Gotham and the Bat once and for all, anyhow. And he would like to analyze its behavior as much as he could in order to see if its nature could be replicated into him. He wouldn’t let such an opportunity go to waste.

Later when they exchanged numbers (Crane using a prepaid phone.) Crane realized that he had seen that number before. Lo and behold, after checking the sheets of paper in which he had written his contact information in case he needed it to find test subjects (also because it was too risky to have a phone), Crane found the number. Along with that, he found a picture of them as children during the summer with their names and the year written on the back, used as a makeshift book mark in one of his psychology books. That woman was the little city girl from the picture. Crane, at that revelation, found out that his summer companion may be useful after all. However, with the new development, unpleasant memories of Georgia began to resurface.

Anyway, Crane attempted to get Mallory to be more accustomed with her Wendigo form, to not see it as a monster but as an asset, a tool that wouldn’t be as bad as it seemed at first. Then he began administering his fear gas onto her. Mallory stayed in the cage and battled it out with the Wendigo until the Wendigo stopped. Crane did this at first to analyze her reaction to the fear toxin, but later as she began winning the internal battles with the Wendigo, wounding it with a silver sword while in her mind; he saw that he could get her to control it, which gave him hope that his Wendigo drug would be controllable, easy for him to bend to his standards.

When Mallory got to a point where in her battles she had multiple attempts to banish the Wendigo from her body, Crane was pleased that it stopped her somehow but that she managed to force it to retreat far into her mind. Mallory began explaining to Crane that now that she had been doing these sessions and had been triumphing against the Wendigo; she knew that she did have the power to control it. Then she informed him that when she had to turn into a Wendigo each week she was now able to control her actions and when she stopped her cannibalistic tendencies. Mallory, at the realization of how much Crane and his researched helped her, became a bit more devoted in paying the debt she owed him.

The storm had not ceased, however. When Crane tried to convince Mallory to keep the Wendigo once she learned to control it, she refused to give in. The woman wanted it out of her. As the possessed woman began pestering him for an antidote, his answers were shady. Thus, she resumed relying heavily on Batman and his resources. Eventually, both secrets came out into the open (Crane’s plan to somehow replicate the Wendigo’s powers into a substance when he had promised to work on the antidote & Mallory’s hop-scotching between enemies for resources) and things had become rocky between the two. Their partnership had become strained.

Just as the Wendigo’s influence was slowly fading away and as the tension between the two heightened drastically, Mallory went to work only to find out horrifying news: She, under the Wendigo’s seemingly waning influence, had eaten a co-worker and it was known throughout the the asylum. Devastated that her cover had been blown and convinced that her hard work was in shambles, Mallory was taken into custody and rendered a murderer who was best suited for a private cell in Blackgate. That changed as soon as she began babbling about what caused her to commit such atrocities, near hysterics. Mallory stayed at Arkham for months. She stayed in solitary confinement for three months until deemed safe to interact with the other patients. Keeping to herself and trying not to provoke any of the big name villains she had been cooped up with, it wasn’t long before she met up with Crane. Trusting him a little bit more than the other inmates, the former psychiatrist stuck with Crane until a breakout was planned. During this period their strained partnership slowly became fixed, with Mallory apologizing profusely enough for the both of them, and Crane giving almost-apologies and accepting her numerous pleas of forgiveness. She filled him in on what he didn’t catch on the news and, after a few strokes to Crane’s ego, they sealed their partnership with a handshake, joining the latest Arkham breakout soon after.

The Wicked Witch was introduced to the public months later, soon after Mallory had turned thirty-two. Their partnership had lasted two years so far. During that time, Crane hadn’t been imprisoned for months now and had been getting actual home-cooked meals (he rarely ate them, but it was the thought that counted), not to mention that she took it upon herself to be his lab rat each time a new batch of fear toxin came out and did hench duties. As time progressed, Crane began to harbor a subtle attraction to Mallory (still a partnership, but was past friendship. Still had his scientist intrigue.) and respect her, the former taking more time than the latter as it was slow to process that someone could be so loyal to him, of all people, and that he wasn’t entirely bothered by that.

As Crane continued to try to manipulate Mallory to retrieve the data needed for his Wendigo drug, he began realizing that he became used to who Mallory had become rather than who she had been those summers ago, especially since he had been interacting more with her now that she was a full-time hench and her heart had mostly thawed. Slowly, he began to think fondly of most of who she was, using her skills to his advantage. He began collecting recordings of her screams as their partnership progressed, giving her the pet name “Scream Queen”. Their partnership has been smooth sailing so far, but in what light they view each other was open to discussion, not that many cared.

As the years went on, she becoming thirty-four and he thirty-five, they grew closer, subtly and slowly. Doctor Jennings, being the (new) professional psychiatrist that she was, was the first to notice the miniscule signs, such as how the ginger-haired woman made sure to compliment Crane, how Crane’s pride swelled due to her words, how, at the start, small brushes of the skin made her wince and him twitch ever so slightly, how Crane’s fists clenched when his hench defended him and, when he hissed something particularly vicious later that would leave her with only one option to immediately hush, and how his expression would not harden but would not soften later. Jennings noticed that, when they thought no one was noticing, Crane would grip Mallory’s shoulder or hand until their knuckles turned white, and she in turn would tilt her head towards him. Some of those reactions weren’t exactly positive, but they were reactions nonetheless. These people showing mutual attraction to one another, although not entirely healthy, were to some degree a sign of normalcy. From what she analyzed, most of those signs did not show the psysical deadliness Harley and the Joker had.

Well, except for one thing: Fear toxin.

Crane mentioned, upon his most recent session with Doctor Jennings, that it was regular for the cannibal to be his lab rat, and that she was his most successful experiment to date, not only facing her fear, but controlling it and using its abilities as a weapon or protection. All hopes of reintegrating the pair back into society (and acclaiming wealth and renown for it via the writing of a book) were dashed for Jennings then and there, and Crane relished in the doctor’s expression as such high hopes were cursed beneath his words. That little game was fun while it lasted, the two playing catch with Jennings as the ball, feeding her idealized information about their supposed love life, feeding classic Stockholm syndrome lines and pathetic rehashed lines from black and white romance movies (“Oh, but Doctor Jennings, I simply adore him! He is utterly brilliant and very charming once you get to know him, I swear to you that he is! The other day before that little heist of ours that landed us back here, he brought me the most gorgeous bouquet. Heaven knows where the dear procured it from, but it’s the thought that counts.” She gushed like an enamored schoolgirl, lying through her teeth. “I haven’t felt this emotion in quite some time, Doctor Jennings. I truly thought that I wouldn’t be able to feel it again ever since my first love and accidental kill. Miss Sinnet completes me, you see. She makes me want to become a better person and shows me a way of living that doesn’t involve striking fear into the hearts of Gotham. She made me realize that ‘I don’t want to be worshipped. I want to be loved’,” Crane quoted ‘the Philadelphia Story’ with practiced sincerity. “I’d simply bend backwards for her due to all that she does for me.” He choked the words out, keeping his eyes downcast and his tone quite uncomfortable.). It took the fear gas mention for Jennings to realize that she had been duped, though not entirely. Mind you, a connection had grown between the two of them and it had developed into a romantic one, but the two preferred to keep that very private. Doctors, in their opinion, had no right to go sniffing around them and their love life. They had just as much right to do so as their fellow rogues did, which wasn’t saying much.

Meanwhile, Batman hadn’t abandoned Mallory, but he strongly disapproved of her decision and refused to divulge any information he received that could help cure her. He’d give her the solution once it was ready. However, since he wished to keep the people of Gotham safe, he still worked to help cure her. That is, until she began working with the Scarecrow. By then he had already worked up an antidote, but couldn’t give it to Mallory now that she had made it clear which side she was on. Mallory wasn’t even sure if she wanted it from the Batman since she became the Wicked Witch. It would most likely have strings attached, such as having her surrender, and she would be betraying Crane, which she had no intention of doing since she felt that she had a debt to pay and would feel like a coward if she simply left him to fend for himself. Besides, Batman had failed her. He had a chance to help her before she became a villain, and he hasn’t even instilled the hope in her that her condition could be fixed by telling her of the contents of the cure. The damage was done, and he helped cause it. After the lot of things that she had done, with and without Crane, Mallory felt as if she was stuck in the underbelly of Gotham criminals, albeit a bit contently.

And, secretly, she became grateful for her Wendigo predicament because she wouldn’t be the educator she was now and would never have found her niche with Crane and the other villains. She became insecure about reintegrating into society because she had seen the scorn criminals get when they did. Plus, with her felonies, she doubted that she would ever get to go out of her cell. Would Crane even attempt to break her out since the Wendigo was gone?, she wondered. She couldn’t help but assume and fear that once the Wendgo was gone, Crane would lose interest in her. That was why, when an antidote was procured by the Bat, Mallory began trying to scrounge up any Wendigo essence. Its spit perhaps, or a piece of its stag horns. That way if she decided to take the antidote, she’d leave something of the Wendigo for Crane’s benefit.

Note: The relationships with already established cannon characters Batman and Jonathan Crane described in this section (from when Mallory assumes her role as the Wicked Witch up unto the third to last paragraph) can have the possibility of being nonexistent, developing, etc. in a roleplay. For those of you roleplaying as the aforementioned cannon characters, please contact me before starting a roleplay so that we may discuss the grounds of the character’s relationship. What doesn't follow the biography will be an AU to my headcanon.

Mallory’s time as the wicked witch/understudy only is the standard period I will roleplay her in unless otherwise specified.

Also, for those who wish to roleplay with me: if you wish to roleplay with Mallory in her pre-Wendigo period, Wendigo period/pre-witch period, post-Wendigo period/Witch period, post witch period/Nearly Obliterated Wendigo period, or her fully-thawed heart/coven period (Where Mallory’s fate is included (black ice incident)) please notify me beforehand. If you wish for more specification as to what I am talking about, please send me an ask or a message and I will happily explain.

Name: Mallory Kieran Sinnet.

Alias (Nicknames/Hero or villain name): Mal, Lori, Kiera, Annie. Jervis Tetch calls her the Dormouse. He calls the Wendigo a Bandersnatch. Mallory’s allias’ are Abigail Proctor, Abby Hobbs Elizabeth Nurse, Eliza Proctor, Beth Hobbs, and other names of those killed in the Salem Witch trials of 1697.

Villain name is the Wicked Witch.

Age: Mallory is thirty five, looking a little bit young. The Wendigo has its possessed age slowly so that it may last longer. Its age is unknown, but it is certainly ancient. If the Wendigo is cast out, it leaves Mallory with a slow aging appearance, among other things.

Gender: Mallory is female while the Wendigo is genderless.

Side (Hero, villain, neutral): Mallory is neutral at first, but when she loses her job she becomes a villain. The Wendigo is pure evil.

Occupation: Previously a psychiatrist at Arkham and later an understudy to the Scarecrow.

Appearance: Mallory’s face claim is Jayma Mays. Mallory is 5 feet and is very petite, weighing 110 pounds. She has a slim, boyish figure and has pale skin with an ever so slight pink tinge to it. Mallory’s huge grey eyes and shoulder length auburn hair, which has a fringe or is parted so that she has a side bang that covers half of her forehead, are her most noticeable features. She has a button nose and a heart-shaped face. Her bottom lip is slightly plump while her upper lip is thin. Such features make her look quite doll-faced. She (when the Wendigo didn’t lend her its own durability and strength) isn’t very strong physically, and looks fragile, like a porcelain doll.

She has a scar on the right side of her neck as a symbol of her prematurity and a birthmark on her right shoulder, a small barely noticeable black dot. She also has slight scars on the back of her legs from a surgery she had as a child to prevent her from walking on tip-toe because if she did so, she would have difficulty walking because her ligaments would tighten and cause pain to her feet. It didn’t work, so she still walks like that. She was inclined to walk on tip toe as a child because she believed that it made her faster on her feet, helping her speed when practicing chi-blocking and improving her balance.

She may not look as if she is looking at someone, but she is. Her eyesight is better on her left eye than on her right eye. When she’s looking at someone it seems as if she is looking at the space next to a person’s head. As she loses her job, Mallory becomes more fit and her fighting ability increases, as well as her range of weapons.

When she transforms into a Wendigo, stag horns bloom from her head. As the painful transformation proceeds, her limbs elongate, her teeth and nails sharpen, her skin turns grey-black, she grows taller, her hair becomes stringy and oily and her eyes widen, the pupils dilating. Her eye color turns from a stormy grey to an eerie yellow, and her voice becomes snake-like, whispery, and shrill. The Wendigo is a good ten and weighs ninety-seven lbs. Its eyesight is slightly blurry and it looks completely starved, showing its ribs. If you have seen Hannibal season one episode thirteen you notice that there is a sort of stag-man popping up. That is what I envision the Wendigo looking like. Except, since its host is a female it takes the body shape of a starved female with stringy, oily hair.

Civilian Clothing Style: Mallory has a vintage dress sense with a gothic flare (kind of a similar dress style to Emma Pillsbury (Peter pan collars, flower patterns, (high-topped) skirts, cardigans, bows, lace, etc) but with subtle skulls or bones or other macabre designs). She wears plaid shirts and jeans when hunting.

Hero/Villain Attire:

As one of Scarecrow’s crows, Mallory wore a dark blue - nearly black - hooded cape that reached her ankles, black lace up ankle boots, flexible black leggings, and this shirt: (remove the spaces for the link to work) socishopify.myshopify.com/prod… She changed her costume shirt regularly, but it was almost always black and long-sleeved. Along with her villain attire, she modified her appearance by dying her hair black and wearing black hair extensions that went to her waist. It was left loose most of the time. Only when she knew that it would be a hindrance during crimes would she pin it up or put it in a slightly messy fishtail braid. Coupled with the hooded cape, her costume made her look fittingly similar to Morticia Addams. She wore pasty white make-up and masks similar to that of 1800 black plague doctors. She wore contacts when doing what Scarecrow instructs and used make-up to enhance her eye size. Here is the make-up she applied: static8.depositphotos.com/1000… (I know that the above costume is irrelevant, but it’s just in case anyone would have wanted to roleplay when she was barely a crow)

When she became promoted, Mallory’s costume changed. Now she began wearing a yellow-white pilgrim bonnet ( s7d4.scene7.com/is/image/Costu… ) a yellowish white shirt collar tied to her neck with a bow taken from the noose used to hang her Salem Witch ancestor and black patches sewn at her elbows. Over it, she would wear a black long-sleeved shirt, leaving the yellow-white shirt sleeves and the collar of her shirt that was tied with the bow poking out. She usually wore a black pair of pants with black boots when they’re off in the city committing hands-on crimes.

When not on Gotham streets spreading fear, her costume became an inch-above-the-knee black dress with the same design as her work shirt, same collar and cuffs poking out, with black pantyhose, a slightly frilly yellowish white apron, and black buckle shoes. Sometimes she would either wear a witch’s hat or the bonnet. The witch’s hat was old, worn, and raggedy. Its black color had faded some and the hat sagged a bit. Mallory had found it while antiquing. The only bright color on it now were acorns, four leaf clovers, and other good luck charms cleverly hidden. The costume was severely based off of the Salem Witches of 1694, neatly taken care of yet creepy at the same time.

Often, her hair was pinned up, pulled into a fishtail braided bun with strands of hair curling inwards towards her face so that they barely graze her jaw. But, when she didn’t have the time to do her hair, it was worn down, full length at her shoulders with a slight curl running through the strands, usually slightly disheveled. She abandoned her glasses when out in Gotham, opting for contacts that change her eye color with each crime, from brown to black to blue to green to grey and the cycle repeats. But when at the hideaway, Mallory’s glasses were donned on. She continued to wear pasty white make-up, with red lipstick. As insinuated, her identity became no secret with this costume.

Powers (if any):

The Wendigo is very agile, able to ‘ride on winds’ because of its light weight.

Mallory is human, but could change into a Wendigo.

It was a must that Mallory change once a week and thus give the Wendigo full control of her body for half a day to gorge itself. The process was quite painful, but the Wendigo’s appearances have been gradually decreasing to monthly unless brought out.

The Wendigo possesses enhanced strength, durability, hearing, etc.

The Wendigo can withstand dire temperatures.

the Wendigo can mimic voices and both it and its host are expert hunters.

The Wendigo can cause Wendigo Fever.

The Wendigo is able manipulate the weather, and is especially comfortable in cold climates. Mallory can withstand freezing temperatures because of this and can manipulate ice and snow, plus the winds are stronger and thus allow her to glide more freely.

The Wendigo can summon dark creatures to attack its enemies.

The Wendigo is a friend of any of natures animals, especially dangerous ones.

(This is based off of the myth that the Wendigo has a ‘heart of ice’) The Wendigo can control its hosts’ emotions, intensifying them or stifling them. This is good for the Wendigo, but bad for Mallory. However, gradually this control lessens thanks to Batman and Scarecrow’s help.

Later, once the Wendigo is control or out of her system entirely, Mallory’s bad luck will overwhelm her after years of being unused. If she decides to study for the greater good, she will learn how to control the bad luck curse and use it for the greater good. If not used for the greater good, it remains a curse for her. When she does become fully blown evil, Mallory will occasionally do good things for other villains and stray animals or anonymously to civilians to balance out her good and bad luck, along with wearing good luck trinkets. (It is similar to Jinx from Teen Titan’s, except with pros and cons. Think of Carrie’s manipulation of objects. There is an energy surrounding Mallory that allows bad things to happen, such as if she jumps off a roof, she’ll have more of a chance of falling badly because an object would get in her way, say a couple long and sharp shards of glass. However, Mallory can manipulate the bad luck energy to move the shards of glass towards a pursuer or a non-lethal place. Depending on whether she manipulates the energy to move objects towards a good intention or a bad intention, the bad luck energy trained on her either increases or decreases. So, keeping with the falling-off-a-roof metaphor, she may either escape successfully or something horrible may greet her.)

Fighting Style/Weapons:

Uses stealth and shadows to her advantage, taking others by surprise.

Once she is promoted, she uses a gun stocked with bullets that have fear gas in them, named fear bullets.

When promoted, she uses a broom as a staff/sword or a gun. She has different type of broom weapons.

Her mother taught her how to chi-block, contort her body, and do gymnastics. She practiced every other day ever since she was twelve and still practices whenever she helps Scarecrow with his heists.

She’s strong when it comes to words, and she’s smart.

She is very creative when it comes to plans, and gives input when asked.

When in an argument about something that she believes in she won’t back down.

Mallory is good at analyzing people.

Her father took her hunting regularly as a teen. She still keeps that hobby to this day, so she knows her way around the woods. She can wield a rifle and other hunting utensils with relative familiarity, and can survive in the woods.

Promoted or not, she uses a knife and a bit of fear gas when working with Crane. She carries a gas mask with her as well.

She adapts easily to new environments, unused to staying in a place for a super long amount of time.

She doesn’t like conflict unless she feels strongly about something, so she is easy-going in matters that don’t affect her.

Is a marvelous cook and is musically talented, both vocally and instrumentally.

Is adept in nearly all matters of the arts; acting, sculpting, painting, singing, music playing, writing, dancing, acrobatics, ice-skating, etc.

Weaknesses (No ‘he/she is too nice for their own good’ or other weaknesses that are hard to integrate into a roleplay):

Since she does have a superpower of sorts, I’ll give her weaknesses along with her powers. These weaknesses are both her weaknesses power-wise and person-wise.

Mallory has horrid bad luck that has plagued her since childhood thanks to a curse passed down her family. It is uncontrolled by her but is kept in control by the Wendigo (what little is still inside her now). The curse was bestowed on her mother’s side of the family and would only disappear with the Wendigo’s curse.

Mallory suffered from blackouts when the Wendigo was in control. She had no memory of what went on during that time and it never came to her memory unless the Wendigo shared its memory with her. The Wendigo didn’t share its memories with Mallory, but Mallory couldn’t block it from receiving her memories.

Mallory had no control over the powers bestowed upon her until she conquered her fear of the Wendigo. The powers were the Wendigos’ until Mallory learned how to take them without getting hurt and started used them for herself. Before, if she tried to take them rawly without any prior experience, she would get hurt physically or mentally.

Mallory has every day human weakness unless in a dire situation. The Wendigo would keep her alive, but only helped if she was on the brink of death. Although she can do so, Mallory doesn’t dare abuse the privilege of being able to heal any brink of death injuries unless she wishes to creep others out. If she is in a head-on collision car crash and she is badly injured, she makes the Wendigo automatically slowly heal the injuries that would have killed her. It won’t heal anything else. If her arm got dislocated or broken, tough luck.

Depending in her mood, pre-Wendigo Mallory could be too obedient and could sometimes be seen as a coward despite how strong her moral compass was.

She suffers abandonment issues (Her abandonment issues could be better phrased as a fear of being helpless and of no-one believing what is happening to her, thus not receiving help. So she has issues in that sense, wary of people and their intentions. This become prominent when Batman couldn’t exactly save her and her life of normalcy by whipping up the cure he had promised fast enough. She feels that he is partially to blame for her descent into crime, as many rogues do. So she gets slightly clingy to those who do believe her and help her and spiteful to those who don’t.)

Sometimes she couldn’t talk to some people because anxiety started to build up within her, but since her promotion her confidence has increased.

the Wendigo had strong control of Mallory’s emotions and state of mind, so it used to be hard to tell if Mallory was in control or not. Mostly she wasn’t unless the Wendigo was too tired and starved to exert control. Now that Mallory’s become more villain-like and has gained control over the Wendigo, her emotions are no longer stifled, which tends to be a good and bad thing.

Her sleepwalking poses a problem, often alarming others and getting her into trouble if she doesn’t have her medication or restraints.

Her nightmares and sicknesses constantly leave her fatigued and exhausted.

When it benefits her, Mal poses as a very meek and quiet woman, a woman who is always thinking of others before herself. This can be a problem since she can do so too much that it can hinder her progress as a villain. She didn’t really have much backbone with the Wendigo controlling her, so to speak, and now it takes a bit to bring it out. But When it comes to getting the full antidote to get the Wendigo out of her, then she will stop at nothing in her desperate search to find such a solution, and if people harm the few people she cares about that backbone will show.

Although it is hard to get her angry, when she is angry it can often lead to her saying cold and cutting remarks that she’ll later regret. Or not, depending on the person she had hurt. She had slight psychopathic tendencies, only caring for a rare few who have made an impact on her. She does not exactly care too much for acquaintances and strangers and if she hurts them in any way she believes that it is justified and requires nary an apology. Her parents inclined that behavior towards her, having such tendencies themselves despite faking remorse and concern a variety of times to manipulate others. She picked that up from them as well.

Mallory had a tendency to lie to herself often, but couldn’t really lie to others unless she felt as if they deserved it. Otherwise, it would eat her up inside. Ever since she became a villain, though, Mallory finds it easier and easier to lie both to herself and others each time she does, but makes sure to only use it when she feels that it is important.

Pure silver, if it comes into contact with the Wendigo (since they don’t get close enough and their bodies aren’t thick enough for such a clear and accurate hit), takes way longer to heal than any other type of weapon and greatly hurts it, akin to how it hurts a werewolf. It can kill the host and the Wendigo if sliver breaks skin and enters the bloodstream. In other words, silver is lethal to a Wendigo.

A fire must be kept burning at all times to keep the Wendigo from attacking. But it won’t last long. Fire is also lethal to a Wendigo, but it takes longer, has to be a scalding hot temperature, be kept ablaze, and must penetrate skin and bone.

Mallory gets hungry terribly easily. Since the Wendigo gorges itself, when Mallory changes back to a human she automatically pukes up whatever her human body can’t contain. This causes her to be sick soon after the Wendigo is done feasting and leaves her weak, needing to eat despite how sick she feels.

When dealing with a Wendigo be sure to have as many magical artifacts as you can. Especially magical silver and magical fire. But, since a part of magic lies in the Wendigo, it builds up certain resistances (as a friend informed me, “they are NOT completely undead, contrary to popular belief,”) because when flesh is consumed the Wendigo shields the hosts’ heart in magical ice to further symbolize that they have begun to surrender their humanity for something vile. Explains the whole “heart of ice” concept and their powers over ice and snow.

Goals: To keep her humanity, her sanity, to keep the demon festering inside her at bay, to control her bad luck entirely. Deep down inside, she really wants to find someone who can tolerate her being a Wendigo, who believes her and wants to help her plight diminish. She believes that she has found that person in Crane. Above all, Mallory wants a way to escape the crimes she has committed and reintegrate into society (or so she wants to believe).

Fears: Eating a loved one, being imprisoned or killed, being fully possessed by the Wendigo inside her, her bad luck killing her after all these years, loneliness. She is severely uncomfortable with anything resembling witch craft killings, despite having a near fascination with the subject.

Other

Hobbies: Watching black and white movies, feeding strays, sleeping, cooking, writing, reading, researching, singing, lounging with a few strays, hunting, acrobatics, pacing, analyzing, planning, dancing to classical music or swing music, and other things in no particular order.

Mallory owns a Doberman used for hunting and a cabin in the woods that are on the outskirts of Gotham, where a few cats now reside with the dog. She feeds strays and woodland creatures remains of the food she cooks and, as a result, has attracted numerous animals to her cabin.

Mallory stalks Scarecrows’ victims when he tells her to and disposes of them for him, her nimble moves and habit of sticking to the shadows being ideal for remaining unseen.

Mallory often takes care of the mundane chores, such as scheduling appointments for heists, cooking meals, arranging business deals, picking out rewards and opportunities that she knows will benefit them, hunting and intimidating those that threaten Crane, testing fear gas on herself and others, making sure the new recruits stay in line, and patching people up. All Crane worries about is his toxin, experiments, and his plots. However, he does remember to intimidate his underlings and they both update all of their weapons.

Mallory stays up until ungodly hours in the day watching black-and-white movies just so she’ll make herself be so tired that she won’t hopefully have any dreams throughout the night. It works sometimes.

Mallory puts on a friendly, caring, non-judgemental front for some of the villains, calling them things like ‘dearie’ when they allow her to and doing her best not to make any dangerous enemies by getting on people’s good sides. Heck, she’s even called Batman ‘sweetheart’ once or twice. Didn’t stop her from getting cuffed, though. She makes herself be viewed as a calculating yet more help-than-harm kind of woman, a person who only wants everyone to succeed. It is mostly a lie. She only wants the best for those who she truly feels connected to or those she deems ‘need her help’. But, there are subtly indications that the front will go in the drop of a hat when people see her comparing killing techniques with the deadlier villains or her employer, or hunting.

Mallory adores singing and dancing. Swing and rock especially, with a bit of classical, ballet, or Sinatra thrown in there. She believes that Crane’s long limbs make him the ideal swing partner, but she has reached the conclusion that he would never dance with her. Mal doesn’t dare put him on the spot and embarrass him, so she settles with any partner gladly

When she cooks, hunts, cleans, pursues her ‘artistic’ hobbies, and tortures, Mallory listens to music. She believes that it makes things fun, gets her creative juices flowing, and that she moves faster with her radio or her headphones on. It was a habit developed in Arlen and that kept up with her ever since.

She uses every part of an animal or human once they’re dead, convinced that they need to be honored so it doesn’t constitute as killing for sport, something her father engrained into her from their very first kill. Which, it still does, but it becomes practical. So, whatever isn’t edible fertilizes gardens, turns into fish hooks, becomes a den for animals, or something else.

Mallory has a strong, mildly unhealthy obsession with witchcraft, particularly her family’s supposed blend of magic.

As his understudy, she has been drilled repeatedly, overbearingly on Crane’s notes and other important information lest she need to replace him for an amount of time.

    Mallory/Jonathan Metropolis civilians!Alt.End.

    The Metropolis Civilians!Alt.End is one of the many alternate endings I have.

    Basically, instead of going to Arlen, Mallory stays in Metropolis since her life before the Wendigo is there. She meets up with her old coven and they're more than happy to reintegrate her back into their ways. Mallory gradually begins to accept the magic part of her ancestry and thus the curse is broken. Mallory and Diane rekindle their friendship, and they begin collaborating on the academy in Metropolis, with the two witches getting Lex Luthor to help fund their schools.

Mallory begins checking in on her parents to help them become better people and to help them break the curse. It is an arduous process, but with the members of Justice League Dark's assistance and Diane's help/enlightening, the Anderson and Sinnet families are eventually free of both the curse of the Wendigo and the bad luck curse.

Such luck leads Jonathan back to Mallory. They accidentally meet up at a local cafe. Jonathan looked horrid, bony and bleeding. He'd gotten mugged on his way out of Gotham, a city he had grown sick of now that his plots weren't flourishing, his fear seemingly erased, his fear toxin weak and nonexistent now that his resources were slim to none, and his most fascinating test subject - his once close confidant - had apparently died. It hadn't helped to find out that Nygma had become a private investigator or that other rogues had also managed to keep themselves well-off and somewhat happy.

Jonathan's shock and mixed feelings were buzzing when he stumbled across Mallory. Mallory explained her cleansing process and, to regain his trust, gave him money, directions to a nice hotel, and, among the roll of dollar bills, a vial of pure Wendigo essence she had managed to persuade Zatanna to give her. However, she did ask Jonathan why he hadn't helped her get rid of the Wendigo, and she preyed on his vulnerable state to further regain his loyalty, giving him the reassurances and support he needed. She repeatedly made it clear that she wished to help him find a better life, and that if she hadn't been told to leave for her own safety, she never would have left his side.

After this display of trust and her loyalty was secured, Crane chose to accept Mallory's help if only to analyse the side effects the Wendigo bestowed upon her. He secretly wouldn't admit it, but he did not want to let her go so easily. The ropes of infatuation, dusty as they were, still clung to him tightly.

Just as Mallory had hoped.

It was only months later, when the couple had finally reached stability and all seemed mercifully normal, that Mallory confessed her plan to Jonathan. 

Jonathan Crane has been manipulated by fear and cowardice and scorn and disgust and thus learned to manipulate by those methods.

Mallory Sinnet was manipulated by love and fear and wariness and beauty and self-preservation, and learned to manipulate those traits.

She, unlike Jonathan, started manipulating others at a very young age thanks to her parents teaching her so/doing the same to others. 

He started doing so in his late teens and stopped altogether, becoming vastly introverted when he secured his short-lived success at Gotham's psychology branch. 

He barely wielded his manipulation skills progressively when he chose to, and as a villain only manages to manipulate negatively with fear and eeriness..

Mallory, on the other hand, wanted to continue honing her manipulation of others and thus strived to familiarize herself with the arts - most specifically acting - and the psychology degree helped as well. 

The Wendigo was a test, and she was certainly intimidated by the fact that she could not manipulate a spirit. And yes, she needed a little shove to help her get better with dealing with it. But it helped her out, it taught her how to stalk and successfully ensnare her prey. It honed her manipulation skills and allowed her to pull of self-preservation stunts she never could have done due to human error and feelings.

Now who would be the more skilled manipulator? Mallory, of course.

It was much better than her acting degree, she just never knew it until Jonathan had helped her realize it. It was then that she began planning. There was no way she was going down so easily without a fight. The Wendigo went along with the intrigue that this certainly hadn't been done before. Every other Anderson had simply laid down and was devoured. If she was going to die - which she wasn't, not by a long shot - she was going to do something meaningful first.

Batman knew this plan. She had told him her plan and he had agreed, even though he was unsure it would work at all. It was a plan to help purge corruption from Gotham, and some of it worked.

Mallory agreed to Crane's offer both because she wanted to get better and because it meant testing out her capabilities on a totally demented sort of mind. 

When she became the wicked witch, Mallory foregoed her ties to Gotham's elite in order to delve into more interesting test subjects.

She - with the Wendigo's help - managed to get the Master of Fear under her thumb. She, a woman of feelings and the occult, managed to get a man of science and fear to to develop a sort of attachment to her - whether he was aware of it or not. 

She didn't even have to mold herself to be someone else he wanted. He was so subconsciously lonely that he welcomed her as her flawed self with open arms when his nightmares became too much for him. He actually adored her for herself - in all her eccentricity and energized creativity. That made her feelings all the more genuine, but it didn't hurt to keep so much from him. It was all for the best.

None of her feelings developed for any of the rogues were lies. Her intentions were shielded, but she left her personality bare to some degree. She was most open and truthful to Crane, but he didn't know half of what went on in her mind.

She allowed him to manipulate her, allowed him to withdraw the cure to further enhance their dependence on one another. She knew he was leading her to what could be her demise if she had't planned out something so properly orchestrated. She did not approve of his methods of revenge - she thought revenge was an utter waste of time - but earned his faithfulness by learning every inch of his mind and committing his orders without question. He barely knew a thing about what went on in her head, and she preferred to keep it that way. The Wendigo, in retaliation to her melting heart, shielded her mind. It was better to be essential than to be in charge.

Yes she wanted her feelings back and certainly did not want to die - but she had to endure the Wendigo long enough for her to gain not only Crane's trust, but most of his devotion and dedication.

Not only would that help her get a cure - so she hoped - but it would allow her to change someone she deeply cared about's life for the better. To mold him into a person he was meant to be, a person he could still be.

The black ice incident was kind of staged. Mallory and the Wendigo planned it out and went with it as soon as they were positive that Jonathan Crane was infatuated with them, and that the Gotham Rogues thought of her as a trusted ally - even, in Harley's case, a best friend.

The Wendigo couldn't stop Justice League Dark's cleansing of Mallory and, as a reward for her cunning outwitting of it, left her with a few perks, such as freezing her appearance to its physical peak, allowing her mind and senses to be relatively sharpened and focused, and other blessings in disguises I mentioned in her character sheet aftermath.

It hurt to leave her hard work to go to Metropolis, and all Mallory could do was hope her hard work had paid off. When Jonathan came to her, she nearly cried in relief because all of that planning was so close to working. She nearly had all she could ever want, doing unbelievable things in the process. It was so risky, and yet things couldn't have been going more greatly.

Once Mallory had spit her guts out to Crane, she left him alone to think. Least to say, he was flabbergasted. No-one had ever done something like that to him in all his life. No-one had gone to such extreme lengths to ensure his happiness and safety, no-one had tolerated him, identified with him on such a personal level, adored him as she did and still managed to keep her secrets hidden so well from him, nor had anyone manipulated and tormented him so horribly.

Mallory Kieran Sinnet impacted Jonathan Crane so profoundly that he stayed, utterly beguiled. And they were /"normally"/ happy and successful ever since. Jonathan, now under the alias of Johannson Crowley (I'm still working on the name), earned a teaching spot at Metropolis Universities' psychology branch, helping his wife, Mallory Crowley, with her books and horror show/movie pitches. Mallory put her acting talents to good use, and the two flourished among Metropolis' community, though they did unsettle some with their morbid tastes.

Um, what else? The two were married on Halloween and attempted unsuccessfully to produce children, suffering the same fate Mallory's parents had. They stopped trying after their third miscarriage, and instead, upon Crane's insistence, adopted Giles Corey and Annabelle, two infants who, due to the mothers' request, were going to be shipped off to an orphanage in Arlen.

That's all for now. Fanfics will be written soon enough.

Now that that's explained, onto the memes!

    Who holds:

    The umbrella, when it rains - Jonathan. He usually hogs it to himself. Mallory adores the rain so she doesn't mind at all. Though            Jon tries to stay dry, Mallory always ends up hugging him at some point, getting his clothes soaked. He doesn't pull away too much      now that they've been in a relationship for years.

    The popcorn at the cinema - Mallory. Jon doesn't eat much popcorn. He holds the candy instead.

    The baby, when it cries - Mallory during the day and Jonathan during the night. Jonathan is a bit more affectionate with the kids at        night, having nothing else better to do when his insomnia kicks in.

    The ice cream cone, when they share - Mallory. They rarely share ice cream, though. They only do so when they pretend to be one        of those lovey-dovey couples for appearance sake.

    The remote, when they sit down to watch a movie - Jonathan, your resident control freak, /always/ holds the remote.

    The basket, when they go shopping - Jonathan. Mallory would, but she is too busy picking out the many ingredients she uses in her     vegetarian culinary pursuits.

    The door, on dates - They take turns.

    The other’s hand, most often - Mallory reaches out to hold Jonathan's hand frequently, but it is Jonathan who keeps the hold going        on. He is unbelievably clingy when he is allowed to be.

    Their breath, upon seeing the other on their wedding day - Jonathan. He had trouble believing that he was actually getting married     in the first place.

    The camera, when they take pictures together - Jonathan. Again, resident control freak. Plus photography is totally his hobby when     he feels like it.

        Who made the first move; Mallory by proving her loyalty. Jonathan sealed the deal, though.

        Who said ‘I love you’ first; Easy; Mallory. Jonathan was relentlessly guarded with the words and never said it until he was                  positive that they wouldn't ever be parted again.

        How often they fight; They try not to fight much. Mallory often communicated well enough with Jonathan to prevent fights, but           Jonathan still hadn't mastered that very well. They get into fights sometimes about things such as work overloads and whenever         they're both totally stressed about work or people. Their arguments range from ridiculous little things to completely serious               matters.

        For instance, when they found out that G.C. and Annabelle were witches and had powers, the two had an argument about what           to do. They ended up consulting Diane for advice and doing their best to follow it.

        And a week later they were arguing about whether Dandy from American Horror Story was a complex character or not.

        Who's big spoon/little spoon; Should be obvious, given their physiques. Jon/Mal.

        What their nicknames are for each other; Mallory switches between "Jon-Jon" and "Pumpkin." Jonathan switches between                    "Coppertop" and "Witch." The term "Ragdoll" is an insult in Mallory's opinion, so that nickname is used in particularly heated                 arguments. In an argument, Mallory lashes out back with the nickname "Farm boy."

        Who's the better cook; Mallory had formal training, so she is. Jonathan succeeds in burning toast, but can brew coffee well.

        Their song; I'm not really sure, but there is a fear family playlist by Yoruhoshi on Grooveshark. Here it                                                is: grooveshark.com/#!/playlist/Fe…

        Who remembers their anniversaries; Mallory was the one who remembered their anniversaries at first, doing small things like            unexpected scavenger hunts and horror movie marathons and late night horror game binges. But as their relationship                        progressed, it's Jonathan who acutely remembered things like birthdays and anniversaries to the extent that everything he                planned out (/if/ he even plans something out because sometimes he forgets or just procrastinates 'cause he has work to do)            has to be perfect; nothing can go wrong or else he'll just grow frustrated and sulky.

        Their favorite thing to do together (besides sex); Talk about morbid stuff.

Hi, peoples! I'ms HBCfanAlex, but you can call me Alex!

In case you're wondering, HBC stands for one of my favorite actresses, Helena Bonham Carter. As my penname suggests, I'm a fan of her and her work.

I like a lot of things, mostly morbid, dark and twisted plots and great character development. I'm Gothic. To me (and I'm sure that there are others who agree), the term Gothic when describing a person means that said person has an affinity for the macabre, and are fascinated or enchanted with such darkness in the world, thus wishing to explore it and perhaps live their life learning more about it/educating those who wish to learn about it. We just see things differently.

Now, did I mention anything about fashion?
Music style (Although I do love me some Voltaire and Emilie Autumn)?
How many colors/chemicals wreak havoc in someone's tresses?
How rebellious or moody one is?
General hardcore-ness?
No.

Anyone - and I mean anyone (Your always-in-pink school teacher, that elderly neighbor across the street, a sweet girl who partakes in community service, etc.) - who has an eye for the darkness that lurks in the world can be Gothic. And I am one of those people. End of story.

Pleasure to meet you~.

Writing is, and most likely, always will be, my top priority. You'll often find me in a corner, drawing or thinking about fanfiction and story ideas I'll have. As the years go by, I grow more serious about my hobby and am thankful for any constructive criticism. I will strive to do better.
Oh, I sing too. Pretty well, or so people tell me, and my vocal control is pretty cool, if I do say so myself. :shrug:
