The Story revolves around the Killing Joke comic
(Y/n) - You
(W/n) - Wife
(Y/n) (L/n) was your average man. He had a pregnant wife who loved him dearly. He worked as a comedian, he felt that in order to be happy was to make other people happy so thats how his job came about. There was one problem though he didn't have a lot of money. He and his wife lived inside of a apartment in Vale. Today was another day for him. He came home from work and opened the door to find his loving wife waiting for him. The door creaks as he shuts it.
(W/n) - So how'd it go, did they like the act?
(Y/n) - (sighs) well they said they would call me, I got nervous and blew a punchline.
He set his fedora down and walked over and sat at the table across from (W/n). (Y/n) was under stress as he had his hands over his head. He heard (W/n) mutter a Oh and he got a little ticked off. He opened his eyes and lifted his head to look at her.
(Y/n) - What do you mean oh?
(W/n) - I-I didn't mean anything
(Y/n) - Yes you did, the way you said it like that.
(W/n) - Jesus, All I said was-
Before she could say it, she got interrupted by him as he stood up complaining about how she said it.
(Y/n) - It's an Oh so you didn't get the job. It's a Oh I should've known. It's a Oh so how are we gonna feed our baby?
(Y/n) - You think i'm not worried about that, you think it's all a big joke to me?
He walks away from the table and explains how he has to go on stage and have nobody laugh and be humiliated. A tear falls down and he starts breaking down. He then slowly walks toward (W/n) and hugs her. He apologizes for how much she had already suffered, and how he didn't mean it. He looks up at her then apologizes how she's married to a loser. (W/n) tries to calm him down by saying it's not true. He disagrees and explains how he wont be able to support her.
(W/n) - Shhhh it'll be ok. The baby wont be here for another 3 months. The owner of the apartment will let us stay for a little longer. She feels sorry for me.
(Y/n) - ....She hates me. She complains about me every time I take the stairs. Here it smells like cat litter and old people.
He walks toward the balcony window to enjoy the dark night and the city.
(Y/n) - I just gotta get you outta here before the baby comes. All I need is enough money to get us set up somewhere else more decent. For crying out loud theres girls on the street who earn that in a weekend. Without having to tell a single joke. Or blow a punchline.
(W/n) giggles and motions for him to come over to her and tells him to stop worrying. She holds his hand and explains how she'll love him with a job or no job. She goes on to tell him how he already makes her laugh. They then hug it out.......

2 weeks later....
(Y/n) is at a table in a bar with 2 other men who are in black suits and wearing hats eating lobsters. Yesterday (Y/n) tried to find a way to get money so he went to these men to get money. But in order for that he has to do a little job for them.
(Y/n) - You see I have a reason, a good one. I have to prove myself.
He takes his drink and chugs it before setting it down on the table.
(Y/n) - As a husband and a father. I mean well, this isn't the sorta thing I would agree to do normally without an important reason.
He says as he looks up at the men who were listening to him talk. The heavier one motions to the taller and leaner one to let him speak for a second.
(Fatter Male) - Of course.
(Y/n) thinks these guys are friendly so he believes he can trust them. So he decides to help them out with the job.
(Y/n) - Hey did I tell you guys I used to work as a lab assistant? It was a good job but, my heart wasn't in it. So I quit to be a comedian. To make people laugh and when they laugh they feel good. The thing is heh they didn't.
He pauses for a moment scratching his head remembering the acts on stage. And looks down at the table but looks up again looking more cheerful.
(Y/n) - Now i'm not feeling good. Thats why i'm here for the big score!
After he said that little giddy commotion the Taller guy spoke up
(Taller Male) - Oi Can you try to be cool.
The men in black suits were afraid someone else might hear what the group were up to. (Y/n) smile vanished and looked down at his hands and apologized explaining how he usually doesn't drink during lunchtime.
(Y/n) - and you weren't lying when you said we'll get away with it. Nobody will know I was involved?
(Taller Male) - Not to worry friend. We'll take care of you.
(Fatter Male) - Yeah not to worry friend we just need your help gettin through that chemical plant you used to work at and company store next door. That's your part of the job that we'll appreciate.
(Taller Male) - And to make sure no one ain't gonna connect you to the robbery...
The tall male reached under the table for something and came up with a suitcase. He unzipped it and inside revealed a mask, fake cat ears and a fake tail. Immediately (Y/n) knew what the costume represent.
(Y/n) - Wait a minute i've seen those crooks in the papers before.
He then looked around to make sure no one was listening and spoke in a quieter tone.
(Y/n) - Im supposed to look like a white fang member?
The Taller guy rolled his eyes.
(Taller Male) - Yeah, what else a pussycat for Halloween.
(Fatter Male) - For this job you'll be the most valued member crew. You get to wear it. No questions asked.
(Taller Male) - Sure that makes sense right? That's you.
Again (Y/n) was still undetermined wether he should do it.
(Y/n) - Ahh I don't know. That chemical plant...I quit because it creeped me out. So grim and ugly, it was gettin under my skin.
(Taller Male) - But you know it like the back of your hand.
(Fatter Male) - Right. But again this ain't bout you though is it.
(Y/n) - No it isn't. Then I could live a proper life.
(Fatter Male) - Exactly, can't make a nest without breakin a few eggs.
(Y/n) - heh thats funny.
(Taller Male) - No it's cliche.
(Fatter Male) - So Eleven on Friday... Friend?
(Y/n) was wondering how starting Saturday he'll be rich and have a normal life with his family. He was thinking how he should think about this part of his life completely change. Nothing will be the same. Nothing ever again. He wondered as he looked as his reflection in his drink.
(Timeskip Brought to you by Dishonorable)
(Taller Male) So... can we count on you?
Questioned as the fatter guy sips on his drink.
(Y/n) - Well of course, it'd be crazy to back out now. I mean the worst part lying to (W/n) that's done. She thinks I have a club engagement
(Fatter Male) - Right to keep her thinking on that.
(Taller Male) - Now... about tonight. Wear a suit and bowtie, with white magician looking gloves. unless you want you fingerprints everywhere so i suggest you wear it.
(Y/n) - It's what (W/n) will expect me to wear when I go to the nightclub.
The Black Suited Men see that behind (Y/n) a detective and officer can be seen walking through the entrance going to the Barman asking about something. They then become suspicious. They become even more suspicious when they saw the Barman point towards (Y/n). They then start walking towards him.
(Detective) - Excuse me sir. Could we speak to you uhh, outside for a moment.
(Y/n) was scared and confused for a moment thinking he did nothing wrong.
(Y/n) - Me? b-but why? I haven't done anything
The cop then explains it'll be for a moment. (Y/n) agrees and gets up from his seat and walks with the men outside with the Black Suited Men at the table wondering if this was a setup. The Bigger male looked at the Taller one for confirmation. They look at the Detective and (Y/n) to see them talking about something they couldn't hear. The detective looks like he's showing a picture of something to (Y/n) and seems to nod his head. (Y/n) gives a look of distraught and closes his eyes sadly. He then looks inside to the Black Suited Men. The Taller Male slowly brushes his finger against his gun. (Y/n) closes the door and slowly walks over to the table.
(Taller Male) - Something you wanna tell us Friend?
It took a long moment before (Y/n) could speak up.
(Y/n) - There was an accident this morning. My wife..... got hit by a car and was killed.
(Y/n) sat at the table and used his hands to lift his head up.
The two men shifted their shirt collars and looked at each other before comforting (Y/n).
(Taller Male) - Gee.. That's terrible, We're really sorry.
(Y/n) - The cop said it was a one and a million shot accident.
The bigger male sat up from the chair and put his hand on (Y/n)'s shoulder
(Fatter Male) - That's a rough break man. Probably want to be alone right? That's cool we'll see you tonight.
(Y/n) - Tonight I-I can't theres no reason to anymore. (W-W/n)'s dead.
The Taller guy also stood up to put his hand on (Y/n)'s shoulder
(Taller Male) - No no no no. I'm sorry about your wife. But what's happening tonight is no little thing.
He explained while moving his coat back to show his revolver.
(Taller Male) - Now we make sure no one backs out from this being healthy.
(Fatter Male) - Look tomorrow you can bury your lady in luxury. Tonight you're with us, get the picture?
They could tell by his face he had no choice but to accept it so they headed for the door leaving him thinking at the table.
(Another timeskip brought to you by Dishonorable)
(Y/n) was leaning forward against the fence with the Chemical Plant on the other side.
??? - Oi quit your daydreaming friend it's show time.
(Y/n) looked to the side to see his buddies he's gonna be with during this job. He slowly walked over to them with his hands in his pockets.
(Y/n) - I was just remembering, I used to walk along here to work each mornin.
The tall male in the black suit walked over to him with the costume.
(Fatter Male) - Just guide us through the stinking factory so we can get to the joint next door.
(Taller Male) - And stay far away from us while we do the dirty work. It's like we're practically givin you money by cutting you in on this.
He helped put the tail and ears on then came to the mask. The taller male tried to put it on but seemed (Y/n)'s head was a little big.
(Taller Male) - You've got a funny shaped head.
(Y/n) - Maybe I should've been a clown instead of a comedian.
After a few tries he successfully got it on his head.
(Taller Male) - There we go, can you see well in there friend?
(Y/n) - Kind of, the eye slits are a little small. And it's dark.
The Man helped (Y/n) by leading him through the fence hole with his hand on his shoulder.
They walked through the halls with the big tube like objects, That were much taller than them. (Y/n) whispered silently to them
(Y/n) - So we pass through here, than the filter tanks and then the Place should be right beyond that point.
(Y/n) was kind of creeped out of the place but even more since it was dark. They kept on walking when suddenly a bright light shone on them from behind. They turned around to find a cop on a balcony pointing his gun at them.
(Cop) - Hey You Freeze!
The Black Suited Men pulled out their revolvers and started firing at the officer with him shooting back. The cop then started calling more officers for backup through his walkie-talkie.
(Cop) - I Need More Backup, we're being robbed by the White Fang!
We took cover from the cop behind the Tanks and waited for the cop to stop firing.
(Taller Male) - You Asshole! You said there'd be no security!
(Y/n) - They must have altered things since I left.
As I tried to take a peek the cop shot the tank almost hitting me. The bullet cause a hole in the tank which cause some gas to come out. Suddenly another cop started firing at us so we started to run.
(Fatter Male) - For god's sake everything's screwed up RUN!
We ran as much as we could but I had to stop since I couldn't see much because of the mask.
(Taller Male) - Man, Which Way!?
(Y/n) - I-I Can't see where i'm going!
(Taller Male) - You useless son of a bitch!
I felt him put his gun on the side of my head but a cop shot him dead before he could do anything. I tried to take off the mask but it was to tight. Before i could do anything else The other guy got shot before my eyes. He was still alive though
(Fatter Male) - I'm not the guy you want, it's him! He's the leader!
He pointed at me saying I was the leader. He stood on his knee and fired his gun at the two cops. He was shot viciously in the head by them. I tried to run up one of the stairs, but one of the cops followed me. It was dark but I could still tell it was a dead end. I saw the cop behind me. So I started to back away.
(Cop) - Freeze!
(Y/n) - G-Get away from me!
I moved backwards faster but suddenly I felt the railing behind me and I accidentally tripped and fell towards a tank filled with Chemicals.
I fell in with a splash and I could tell this stuff wasn't safe my skin was burning. The current pushed me into a sewer tube like object and suddenly I was falling into a large puddle filled with the chemicals about the size of a pool. I had to get out. I crawled onto land and took a deep breath sputtering the chemicals out of my mouth. I tried to take off the mask.
(Y/n) - *Cough* *Cough* I-I'm Itching everywhere. It Burns! I have to get this off.
I then realized my voice was different and more hoarse. I was able to take off the mask and looked into a puddle. M-My skin was bleached white, my hair was green and my lips were rosy red. I then noticed that the chemicals caused blood to ooze from my eyes and mouth.
I started to cry wishing this was all a dream. But for some reason I found this whole situation Hilarious.
Heh heh Ha Ha Ha Hahaha Ehrrrr
