Third Buffyverse / Batman Drabble

I'm not 100% happy with this one - I'd be grateful if people could take a look and tell me what they think before I post it to archives. Spoilers for Angel season 5...

Bat Time

By Marcus L. Rowland


Bruce's visit to LA is high profile. Eventually an acquaintance mentions Angel, the reclusive new CEO of Wolfram and Hart. Their web site has pictures.

Next morning's local news describes sick children, their faces locked in ghastly smiles. Could the Joker be here?

Oracle suggests a link to a children's show. Batman goes in that night, realises someone else is searching the studio.

He recognises Angel, sees enough to suspect he's metahuman, then a pulse of light hits them.

When he wakes Angel's gone, and he's become a puppet.

He finds a phone, dials, and says "Zatanna? I need help..."
