Okay, but what if Jack is a hard-bitten old-guard sergeant (and mentor) in Winnie & Lee's precinct who suspects that Captain Reyes- a recent transfer- is on the take from Talon? And so he decides to go undercover as a corrupt cop, and is unfortunately recruited as a soldier in the wrong outfit? And what if Reyes is /also/ really suspicious, and assigns W&L to investigate their serge?
This almost sounds like infernal affairs and I love it
Donghae scrubs his hand over his face as he leaves the office building, rubbing his tired eyes. He’s been working long hours for a little over a week now and it’s beginning to take its toll. Still, his boss asked him to stay long hours because he knew he could get the work done properly and it was nice to be feel trusted and valued. Donghae walks to his car, patting his pockets for his keys. He finds them in the inner pocket of his jacket. He unlocks his car and removes said jacket and throws it in the passenger seat as he climbs into the driver’s seat, putting the key in the ignition and turning it. “Turn the engine off,“ comes a voice from behind. Just as Donghae turns to look in the back seat, he feels the cold pressure of a barrel of a gun pressed against the side of his head. Donghae’s eyes widen in shock and his heart hammers in his chest. He swallows once, twice, before reaches a shaking hand out and turns the key back, shutting off the engine. Donghae’s eyes flick to the rear view mirror. The assailant is wearing a black scarf over his nose, but Donghae knew those cold, sharp eyes from anywhere. “H-How did you find me?” “We never lost you. We’ve been keeping an eye.” “My wife–” “She’s safe. For now.” The man reaches over and takes Donghae’s phone out of his jacket pocket. “Tell her everything.” “W-Why?” “This will hurt her more than we ever could.”
Your phone vibrates, moving slowly along the coffee table. You pick it up and look at the caller ID. It’s your loving, perfect husband. You smile and answer the call. “Hey, you.” “Hey, baby.“ Something in Donghae’s voice makes you uneasy. “What’s wrong?” “N-Nothing, everything is fine.” “Tell her.” “Who is that? Where are you?” You ask, your eyebrows furrowing. If it was one of Donghae’s friends or work colleagues, he wouldn’t be sounding so panicked right now. “I’m in my car. There’s….there’s a gun to my head.” Stomach-churning panic washes over you. You feel faint and wide awake at the same time. “Donghae, what’s going on?” You hear Donghae let out a shaky breath. “A few years ago, I worked for the largest drugs supplier in the country. I took care of shipments, kept the cops off our tracks, recruited people. I was second in command. Then I met you, and I fell in love. I realised I didn’t have to carry on living like that; I could have a life with you. So I walked away. It wasn’t a popular decision. They wanted to keep me; they said I was too good to lose. They offered me everything I could ever want, but I declined. It was too dangerous and I didn’t want to drag you into it. I thought they left me alone after that. I had word that I could leave without consequences. Turns out they lied.” Donghae stops to take another shaky breath. “I’m so sorry. I should have realised. I’m sorry, baby.” “It doesn’t matter right now. Just hang tight, Donghae. I’ll get help. I’ll come find–” “I love you,” Donghae says, his voice catching in his throat. You hear the sound of the gun firing down the phone. All you can do is scream.
since V is going in hte brave new direction of using real cities for their bideo game locations i hope the next sr takes place in nyc because i feel like this great city is really underutilized as a setting in open world games and V and sr are all about breaking hte mold. Stilwater was just so generic you know, the Generic American City, while New York City is so fresh and unique and full of potential for creativity that has never been seen before in video games ever, let alone this genre. especially not in games like GTA III Driver Parallel Lines True Crime New York City The Godfather GTA IV COP The Recruit Prototype-
Team Voltron Buddy Cop AU for all your team voltron buddy cop au needs:
Our new recruits, fresh from the academy & ready to kick some butt: Lance, Keith, Pidge, & Hunk
Both Hunk & Lance joined because they both have always dreamed of being police officers. But if you ask Lance, he’ll come up with some tragic backstory, fake tears & all, that he totally ripped from a movie. A sad story gets all the chicks (it actually doesn’t)
Pidge joined because her father & brother were both kidnapped some years ago, but the case was never solved. She suspects some shady activity & back-room deals are behind tge reason why her family was never found, but there wasn’t much she could figure out on her own.
Keith will never give anyone a straight answer about why he joined. He’s like that one chef from Ratatouille – his story changes every time. Lance is convinced Keith is just screwing around with everyone.
Shiro is the team’s sergeant. He fought in the war, but the problem is that he can’t remember which war. He has the qualifications to be of much higher rank, but he opted to remain a sergeant for his own mental health. Yes, he still has his cybernetic arm.
Allura is the police commissioner. She far outranks everyone in our team, but does that stop her from spending a lot of time with the team? Nope. It helps that they’re in the same building.
Nobody really knows why she likes to spend so much time with the team. The most commonly (& non-romantic) believed story is that they remind her of the team she was in when she was no more than a beat cop.
Coran is Allura’s assistant commissioner. Everyone else is pretty sure he’s actually just her secretary, though.
Wanna know who definitely doesn’t get along in this AU? Keith and Lance. So of course Shiro assigns them to a lot of cases together. Neither Keith nor Lance will ever admit it, but they have actually bonded on a number of cases. Whenever Pidge is on a case with them, she makes sure to get photographic proof.
Hunk is basically the glue that holds everyone together. Mostly, it’s because he brings all the good food that sustains everyone throughout the day.
Galra is the mafia, of course. They’ve been around for ages, since long before Allura’s time. What is most frightening about them is the speed at which they dominate any and all crime communities in the city. Some people in the station are convinced that the leader, Zarkon, is immortal, since he never seems to actually die (it doesn’t help that they have 80+ old newspapers featuring pictures of him, and he hasn’t changed a bit)
In case you’re wondering, yes, everyone on the team has named their cars/bikes.
Pidge also has a really bad tendency of modifying their rides on a random, but regular, basis. Keith never knew he needed a bike that can shoot fire, but there it is.
Pidge totally does the Twin Peaks thing and talks to her tape recorder like it’s a real, living thing. She named it Rover.
“Chastain, no stranger to playing tough female roles, will play Jane Vasko, a New York City street cop who gets recruited by the FBI to infiltrate a major NYC drug and human trafficking ring. In a near death experience, Jane develops exceptional regenerative abilities that give her a unique indestructible advantage. With nothing to live for and no way to die, Painkiller Jane becomes an unstoppable force of nature seeking revenge to those who destroyed her life as she leaves a path of death and destruction in her wake.”
Erik has spent the last ten years as Sebastian Shaw’s inside man in the NYPD, feeding information to the city’s most notorious mobster. Charles is an undercover cop on Shaw’s payroll, recruited for the job by Captain Moira MacTaggart when he was still in the Academy.
When Shaw and MacTaggart both realize that there’s a traitor in their midst, it becomes a race against time for Erik and Charles to uncover the other person’s identity. Little do they realize that they’ve met one another before, their brief and intense love affair cut short by conflicting loyalties and the lies they both live…
