Sentence first- verdict afterwards. Prelude.

And so it begins *weeps at loss of all remaining dignity*.

Okay, so this is entirely my own fault for having just landed myself into the whole Jervis/Alice pairing from Batman the Animated Series recently. Give me three doodles and I end up writing a whole story about it. I'm not even going to make any excuses, just... pity me.
