murder at moonlight

anonymous asked:

Honestly with how often Kaito disguises as Shinichi in the movies i wouldn't be surprised if the theory that 'Kudos Shinichi is actually KID' started becoming increasingly more popular among people. KID fans in movie-verse or something having these huge conspiracy theories about it.

This almost certainly happens.  I imagine there are boards on the same KID forums that Sonoko frequent dedicated to it.  You can divide the posters up into a few groups:

1) Proponents of the theory, who a) think it Just Makes Sense, b) think both KID and Kudou are hot and thus feel this simplifies things immensely, or c) are fascinated by the inherent moral quandary presented by a prominent murder detective moonlighting as a nonviolent thief (these people make subforums and debate whether Kudou-as-KID still qualifies as a morally good human and cite philosophers and moral theorists as evidence)

2) Kudou stans, who are offended that anyone thinks that the Great Detective of the East would stOOP TO THEFT

3) KID stans, who are offended that anyone thinks that the Magician Under the Moonlight is secretly a murder detective how boring

4) Trolls (KID himself is included in this category; while he posts reasonable things in other parts of the forum, everything he posts in this area is either nonsense or agitation)

5) Members of the KID Task Force, who sweep the forum for clues and aren’t supposed to post but occasionally argue with the trolls if they insult KID too much (even when people are theorizing that KID is Kudou, which they don’t believe for a second)

6) People with reasonable arguments against the theory, who rarely last more than two weeks (Kudou himself, who posts occasionally under a pseudonym, is an exception to this rule)

(Yes, KID and Kudou have in fact gotten into an internet post war without fully knowing, though both of them had an odd feeling the whole way through.  Kudou just figured there was a draft in Agasa’s lab and Kaito figured it was test anxiety over an upcoming exam he was avoiding preparation for.)

I want to actually fic this but I’m pretty sure I don’t have the time, so I’m releasing it into the wild for now.  Maybe I’ll come back to it, maybe not, but if anyone else wants to take a crack in the meantime, feel free!

Bisexual Haircut Discourse??

I’m not sure how discourse works so stay tuned. 

The bisexual haircut is cool and all but I’ve been thinking about how I have natural hair and a thick afro and can’t participate in that. So i would like to add the Bisexual Afro ™.

Here are some examples of the Bisexual Afro ™

True Crime Book Master Post - At the request from a few of my followers, I have decided to make a second master post including some of my favourite true crime books that I have read recently. Click here to see my first true crime book master post. Click the name to be linked to where you can purchase the book online!

The Shankill Butchers - During the 1970s a group of Protestant paramilitaries embarked on a spree of indiscriminate murder which left thirty Northern Irish Catholics dead. Their leader was Lenny Murphy, a fanatical Unionist whose Catholic-sounding surname led to his persecution as a child for which he took revenge on all Catholics. Not for the squeamish, The Shankill Butchers is a horrifying detailed account of one of the most brutal series of murders in British legal history - a phenomenon whose real nature has been obscured by the troubled and violent context from which it sprang.”

The Texarkana Moonlight Murders - “ In 1946, years before the phrase “"serial murder”“ was coined, a masked killer terrorised the town of Texarkana on the Texas-Arkansas border. Striking five times within a ten-week period, always at night, the prowler claimed six lives and left three other victims wounded. Survivors told police that their assailant was a man, but could supply little else. A local newspaper dubbed him the Phantom Killer, and it stuck. Texarkana’s phantom was not America’s first serial slayer; he certainly was not the worst, either in body count or sheer brutality. But he has left a crimson mark on history as one of those who got away. Like the elusive Axeman of New Orleans, Cleveland’s Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run, and San Francisco’s Zodiac, the Phantom Killer left a haunting mystery behind. This is the definitive story of that mystery.”

The Profession of Violence: The Rise and Fall of the Kray Twins - “ Reggie and Ronnie Kray ruled London’s gangland during the 60s with a ruthlessness and viciousness that shocks even now. Building an empire of organised crime that has never been matched, the brothers swindled, extorted and terrorised – while enjoying a glittering celebrity status at the heart of the swinging 60s scene, until their downfall and imprisonment for life.”

Cold Serial: The Jack the Strangler Murders - “Cold Serial” paints the picture of five girls who were raped and strangled in the Dayton, Ohio, area between 1900 and 1909. The working conditions, lack of rights for women and police protection, and the sexism of the age portray these girls as victims not only of a crime but also of their time. As their stories unfold, a common thread appears, a modus operandi that begins to link them together. During that era, police did not recognize the lurking shadow of a predator. But through diligent research conducted by the author, it is now revealed.”

America’s Death Penalty: Between Past and Present -  “Over the past three decades, the United States has embraced the death penalty with tenacious enthusiasm. While most of those countries whose legal systems and cultures are normally compared to the United States have abolished capital punishment, the United States continues to employ this ultimate tool of punishment. The death penalty has achieved an unparalleled prominence in our public life and left an indelible imprint on our politics and culture. It has also provoked intense scholarly debate, much of it devoted to explaining the roots of American exceptionalism.”

Fred And Rose: The Full Story of Fred and Rose West and the Gloucester House of Horrors - “ During their long relationship the Wests murdered a series of young women, burying the remains of nine victims under their home at 25 Cromwell Street, Gloucester, including those of their teenage daughter, Heather. What was left of Fred West’s eight-year-old stepdaughter was dug up from under the Wests’ previous Gloucester home; his first wife and nanny were buried in open country outside the city. Several victims had been decapitated and dismembered, their remains showing signs of sexual torture. These twelve are just the ones the police found when the Wests were arrested in 1994. There may be more whose bones have not been located.”

Encyclopedia of Murder and Violent Crime - “Edited by an internationally recognized expert on serial killers, this encyclopedia covers both murder and violent crime in their variant forms. Included are biographies, chronologies, special interest inset boxes, up to 100 photographs, comprehensive article bibliographies, and appendices for items such as famous unsolved cases, celebrity murders, assasinations, original source documents, and online sources for information.”

Bind, Torture, Kill: The Inside Story of BTK, the Serial Killer Next Door - “For thirty-one years, a monster terrorized the residents of Wichita, Kansas. A bloodthirsty serial killer, self-named “BTK"—for "bind them, torture them, kill them"—he slaughtered men, women, and children alike, eluding the police for decades while bragging of his grisly exploits to the media. The nation was shocked when the fiend who was finally apprehended turned out to be Dennis Rader—a friendly neighbor … a devoted husband … a helpful Boy Scout dad … the respected president of his church.Written by four award-winning crime reporters who covered the story for more than twenty years, Bind, Torture, Kill is the most intimate and complete account of the BTK nightmare told by the people who were there from the beginning. With newly released documents, evidence, and information—and with the full cooperation, for the very first time, of the Wichita Police Department’s BTK Task Force—the authors have put all the pieces of the grisly puzzle into place, thanks to their unparalleled access to the families of the killer and his victims.”

Hitler’s Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields - “ History has it that the role of women in Nazi Germany was to be the perfect Hausfrau and a loyal cheerleader for the Führer. However, Lower’s research reveals an altogether more sinister truth. Lower shows us the ordinary women who became perpetrators of genocide. Drawing on decades of research, she uncovers a truth that has been in the shadows – that women too were brutal killers and that, in ignoring women’s culpability, we have ignored the reality of the Holocaust.”

Tent Number Eight - “ On a warm summer day in 1977, the State of Oklahoma was shaken by the heinous and vulgar murder of three Girl Scouts in Tent Number Eight at Camp Scott near Locust Grove, Oklahoma. The investigation of their murders and the subsequent trial of the Native American man accused of those murders will forever be marked as one of the most historical in Oklahoma history. Author Gloyd McCoy dissects the investigation of the Girl Scout murders as well as The State of Oklahoma vs. Gene Leroy Hart from the vantage point of the families, the law enforcement, the news reporters, the lawyers, the judges, and the jury. He provides background information on all the parties involved and explanations regarding why certain decisions were made, including the acquittal of the accused murderer, and what might have happened if the lawyers on both sides had made different decisions and modern technology were available. Tent Number Eight will enlighten you on the court proceedings and cultural influences of 1977 and preserve this piece of history in your mind forever. Follow the overgrowth of history back to the site of the crime. Step into Tent Number Eight and witness the events of the murders and trial first hand.”

The Only Living Witness: The True Story of Serial Sex Killer Ted Bundy - “ Ted Bundy was America’s first celebrity serial killer, and one of the most chilling enigmas in criminal history. Handsome, boyish and well-spoken, a law student with bright political prospects, Bundy was also a predator and sexual deviant who murdered and mutilated at least thirty young women and girls, many of them college coeds but at least two as young as twelve.”

I have some pretty exciting news I would like to share with you all - I have just received my first ever book contract! I was recently approached by McFarland and Company (check them out, they’ve published some fantastic books including The Texarkana Moonlight Murders by Michael Newton) who offered me the opportunity to send through a book proposal. I have spent the past few months researching and writing my book proposal and thankfully they enjoyed it and gave me a book contract!

I would genuinely like to thank all of my lovely followers for giving me encouragement and confidence in my writing. Years ago, I wouldn’t have even began to imagine that my writing would possibly meet the standards expected for publishers. With your kind words regarding my writing, I thought I’d give it a go and I’m so thankful that I did.

Unsurprisingly, a lot of me free time hall be taken up by this, but I’m also going to continue writing for my blog and shall continue to post new content daily!

Felicity and her Demons...and one chatty Ghost

missmudpie said: Olicity. Felicity’s own “three ghosts” visit on successive nights on their roadtrip. Who are they? What are they trying to tell her?

Hi missmudpie , look what I finally got done. I hope you like it. It doesn’t follow the successive nights tracks, it goes a little differently, well you’ll see.

(warnings, mention of suicide and murder)


Pale moonlight danced across Felicity’s skin, bathing her in an ethereal glow. Her small feet sunk into the sand with each step she took along the shore, allowing the sea to lap at her ankles. A restlessness had settled into her bones, despite the months away from Starling and it’s magnetism for supervillains. She and Oliver had been moving from one paradise to another, folding and unfolding one another, slowly exposing more and more layers to each other’s identity.

Unfortunately, there was a conflict brewing in Felicity’s subconscious, between the ‘id’ and the ‘ego.’ Felicity was finding herself pacing the halls of the many hotels they had been in, or taking long walks on the beaches, all during the night whilst Oliver slept soundly in their bed, content. 

And perhaps that was the issue. Oliver was content.

“Hey bright eyes.” A voice interrupted Felicity’s train of thought, deep and laden with guilty acceptance, aware of his place in her world.

“What are you doing here?” She asked, quickly spinning around to see him.

“Can’t a father help his girl out when she’s about to make the biggest mistake of her life.”

Felicity shuffled her feet nervously, just like when she was a child, desperate for her father’s acceptance.

“Look at you. You and Oliver have barely been together a few months, and you’re already getting bored.” 

“Is that it then? Did you get bored daddy? Were mom and I not enough?” Felicity spit out, years of pent up anger and resentment bubbling to the surface.

“Felicity, don’t be so emotional. Your mother and I were just different people. We don’t think the same way. Your mom may be caring and passionate, but we could never connect on an intellectual level. There were so many things I wanted to accomplish. Important things that could change the world.”

Her father stepped closer to her, grasping her shoulders.

“Don’t you see? You’re supposed to change the world Felicity. You’re so smart, you don’t need a college drop out dragging you down in a life of domesticity. You have so much potential. Are you just going to waste your time, sipping on cocktails and visiting all of the po-dunk towns between Starling and New York?”

“You don’t know what you’re talking about! Oliver and I are building a future! He loves me and I love him. We make each other happy!” Felicity all but shouted, jerking away from her father’s grasp, stumbling in the clumpy sand. 

Suddenly, she was in the water, her head barely above the surface, looking up at the image of her father.

“Don’t be naive, Felicity. All of your mother’s charm and character and exuberance drew me in. I loved her in the beginning, but that faded as our differences only grew. I stayed, trying to be what you both needed, but it wasn’t enough. I should have left sooner, saved the both of you some heartache.”

Felicity started to slip under the surface, her father’s face getting blurrier and harder see. She could just make out his lips moving, telling her something in earnest.

“Don’t do the same thing to Oliver. If you love him, let him go.”

And then everything went black.
