Junior Murvin | Police and Thieves (1977)

Yoongi Scenario: Wanna Be.

Request: Can i resquest a scenario where yoongi and y/n are in kindergarten and for some reason yoongi makes y/n cry so he feels bad and gives her a gift.. I really want this type of cute fluff. Love your blog

Genre: Fluff


Yoongi doubted someday he would understand girls. They were loud and whinny, always seeming to cry for something. As he played with his rubik’s cube his eyes went to the front were all the so called fun was happening. Yoongi couldn’t understand that either, all the other kids were playing to police and thieves and right now were arranging the teams. Everyone was so loud laughing and pushing each other, he wasn’t interested in participating, his rubik’s cube was way better than that.

A loud whine interrupted his concentration, it was you, the noisiest girl he knew and who Yoongi honestly couldn’t understand.
You wanted to play with all the other kids but the teams were already of even numbers.
-You can’t play with us today Y/N- you stared at the boy who had told you that with your lip already quivering. -We don’t want to play with you today- the boy added making you cry openly, you gave him a kick in the knee and ran straight towards the other lonely kid in the playground. Yoongi.

He shrank his knees to his chest and lowered his head to focus on his rubik’s cube so you wouldn’t bother him, if he avoided eye contact then maybe you wouldn’t talk to him.

-Hey you-

Critical Role Buddy Cop Film

you can tell the quality of my blog is steeply declining. Anyway,

Scanlan Shorthalt and Grog Strongjaw are two loose canons on the Emon police force. When twin thieves come town, its up to them to catch them.

Starring:

Grog Strongjaw: the muscle of the Emon PD. Once took 6 bullets and still managed to apprehend some bank robbers. Barely passed the academy bc he isn’t very smart but makes up for it in enthusiasm. Can often get criminals to surrender through pure intimidation but is secretly a huge softy. Usually follows Scanlan’s lead

Scanlan Shorthalt: the shortest man to ever join the Emon PD. As a master of disguise, he usually does undercover work. Once single handedly took down a crime ring by convincing all of the bosses that one of the others was a police informant. Badass single dad. Always wears sunglasses. Plays music for the Emon PD picnic. the most flamboyant man on the force

Pike Trickfoot: a young doctor at a local hospital. Usually ends up being the one to treat the boys when they get injured (which happens a lot). Scanlan always flirts with her when he’s in the hospital (”Kiss me. I don’t think I’ll make it” “Scanlan it’s just you leg”)

Vex and Vax: Twin con artists/thieves. Came into town with the intent of pulling a heist on the museum. Have never been caught before. (pls just think of Vax in a catsuit). Smooth af, only steal from rich people. Vex is in it for the money, Vax is in it for the thrill

Percy de Rolo: the long suffering police chief. Used to be one of the best officers on the force until he was injured in a fight with the Briarwood crime family. Still the best shot in EPD history. Has pretty much given up on controlling Grog and Scanlan. Just wants Rest (and revenge)

Keyleth: the rookie of the force. Still very inexperienced and sometimes messes up undercover ops. She seems harmless but she can low key kill a man with her bare hands. Once they found a dog fighting ring and she beat up 12 large men by herself. She kept one of the dogs and she is named Minxy and she loves her.

Some fan art I did a few weeks back of Carmelita Fox from the Sly Cooper series. She’s one tough gal and it’s great she’s still a part of the series. I personally enjoyed her Sly 2 voice the most but I know that the Hispanic accents fit the character better. I’m torn between Grey Delisle’s performance or the voice actress from the first game. But yeah, hope you like!

some of my favorite parts of Leverage are when other thieves or police or whoever recognize the crew as the best 

like in the Two Live Crew Job when Chaos was yelling about Sophie all “you don’t con Sophie Deveraux!”

or in the Girl’s Night Out Job when Mattingley learned Parker’s name and was immediately all “Parker? the Parker?”

Cops Use Traffic Stops To Seize Millions From Drivers Never Charged With A Crime
VideoLicense, registration—and your cash. A deputy for the Humboldt County’s Sheriff Office in rural Nevada has been accused of confiscating over $60,000 from drivers who were never charged with a crime. These cash seizures are now the subject of two federal lawsuits and are the latest to spotlight a little-known police [...]

My last mission was to get into Japan’s first casino hotel where a secret auction was held. I was meant to catch the owner of the hotel along with anyone who contributed in the auction; managing it or being a suppler. Throughout the past three years, I was tracking the leader of world class crime league called Ice Dragons; Soryu Oh who lead me to the hotel of Tres Spade. I got into the hotel as a maid three months before the auction. On the same day they were hosting I.V.C. (International VIP Convention) for rich and famous people, reporters and onlooker so they can deal with the real business under their nose.
On the night of the auction I was told to join the welcoming committee because there has been shortage of staff. I have greeted countless of people I can barely remember their face but the last one made an entrance. He came in with a woman on both sides. As he passed by me, I saw a smirk on his face. That one smile sent a shock to my heart and made me realize that my target is on the move. It’s time to start my magic.
        I headed to the elevators down to the IVC. Once I entered, I found a man wearing black shirt with a white tie, beige dress pants, a red jacket, and a black fedora hat who looked he was out from a break up, his face had a mark of a slap.  He seemed familiar somehow but I can’t remember when or where have I seen his face before. However, he didn’t mind moving to next female he’s around. He walked towards me and made me stumble back till I hit the lift’s wall. My pulse rate was speeding up as he’s close as few centimeters. He lifted my chin then he whispered into my ears tickling me with his breath if I could be his date. Elevator ring saved me. I rushed out of there with all of my might. I called my assist team to send Sakiko, a reporter I helped rescue from ice dragons once when she got so close to reveal their doings, she’s been my friend ever since and great help to get me into places without being recognized. She entered into the party started to check if there are some guides to where might the auction take place. Everything she was told I could hear it by the minute using an earpiece designed like a necklace and earrings. As she used her reporting skills to get truth out of people, I went to look for where the door to the auctions. I scanned the hall room for a secret door.
I heard someone coming so I pretended I was looking for my lens. Then I heard the voice of the man I feared and hated most, Soryu Oh. He ordered me to look for it and get out just to give me another reason to shoot him right now. I told him I can’t find it with poor eyesight without it everything is blur. He said he’ll give me a hand. He kneeled down and went on to look as well. I made a wrong move there. I thought he’d leave me be so I’d take my chance and resume my search. When I thought it can’t get any worse, I heard someone telling Sakiko that there’s a party called tea party in wonderland they could get together for some drinks. I hope he didn’t hear that. I shouted I found the lens and asked if he could lead me to the bathroom. As I entered, I heard him talking to a guy that the boxes are all loaded into the storeroom. Then the voices become lower and lower.  That was my cue to go. I called Sakiko to get out, ice dragons are in the hotel. Moments later I found the storeroom they talked about. There were all the stolen items reported one of the recent is the Venus vase. The next thing I know is smell of some drug then everything went black.
I started hearing sounds, they seemed far away I couldn’t make any sense of them. They started to become clearer. They were five different voices of men. Two of them I heard before at the bathroom door one is Soryu’s I’m sure of it. I opened my eyes but I couldn’t believe that the ones standing in front of me, are the strangest group ever assembled. A detective, Mamoru Kishi, I only saw him few times in his office smoking a cigarette all the time. I wondered what does that guy does most of the time out of the office now I know. What used to be a man of heroics turned to be the villain. Next to him ladies’ man who tried to make a move on me in the elevator. Now that I see him among the line of criminals, I remember where I saw him before. He is a world-wanted thief goes by the name lupin. His pictures filled Shunsuke Minami’s desk. He would always say I will catch you, Baba Mitsunari. The owner, Eisuke Ichinomiya, was in the middle on a red sofa looked into me giving me chills. The weirds puzzle of them of all is Ota Kisaki, a famous artist dubbed the “Angelic Artist”, I saw him when Sakiko was writing an article about successful men at young age. What will I do?
I scanned the place for something I could use to run away. They took everything and place it on a table few feet away. Eisuke stood and walked to toward me clapping sacristy. Words he uttered were a death rope tightened around my neck.

“You would have succeeded to thwart us but you forget one important detail. I don’t let things get pass me.” His fingertips touched my curled black hair and said “working so hard to change your appearance dyeing your hazelnut hair black.” His hands went from hair to my face wiping off my foundation that I put on to hit my freckles then to my lips removing my lipstick. Baba interrupted him “boss, don’t you think you’re pushing it over the top?” My eyes were shooting daggers at them. “Tsk” he said.  If I could just get free, I’d wipe off that smirk. My eyes fell on my necklace and earrings. Thank god, they weren’t damaged or broken. I looked at him and claimed, “so you brought me here to mock me. showing me the site of all stolen goods, having criminals bidding on them and can’t do nothing.” I laid back in the chair. “For someone who doesn’t miss a thing. The objective of the mission is to know who runs the whole deal. Now that I know that Eusike Ichinomiya, Baba Mitsunari, Mamoru Kishi, Ota Kisaki, Soryu Oh are the ones behind this my mission is done.” Hoping Sakiko was listening or the team was on to this.  Mamoru said “I told you nothing is stopping this child.”  
Eusike eyed Soryu who came forward taking out his gun. I gulped. He put the gun at my head and I shut my eyes. For moment, I thought I won’t let the see I’m scared. I opened my eyes looking directly into his eyes, daring him to shoot. My heart wildly beating. I took deep breaths. His finger closing in the trigger. Everything’s happening in seconds but felt as time has stopped. Eusike finally said “that’s enough show for now.” I slipped a sigh of relief.
“That’s to be expected from the one and only chat noir.” “Chat Noir?” why would he think that I’m that lady unless…. she going to heist this place. “Still keeping up with this act.” Eusike said as he had enough of this. “Mamoru, did you know about this?” I shouted at him. “you have got the wrong person. Untie me.” I demanded. Mamoru has finally realized who was. “MC!” “Baba, you’d better do as she says the real criminal is still down in IVIPC.” Baba took out his pocket knife and cut through ropes around my hand yet gently not to hurt than they already are. There were some rope marks but finally blood is circulating my hands again. I went to grab my things but I was one second late. There was power outage. “she’s here.” I said. I tried to feel my things on the table looking for my gun. Ota used his smart phone and turned on his flash. Then light went back on. “Meow” a voice called on the screen. “I see you weren’t able to catch me. since I’m so kind, I’ll give a hint.” I couldn’t waste another chance. I grabbed all my things head for the party she must be somewhere near the storeroom. I run towards the elevator hit the button. Luckily, no one has ordered after they brought me here. The elevator was about to close when Mamoru put his hand and squeezed himself through. “Now, you’re doing your job.” “kid, cut me some slack” I was on my edge with this guy. “you know if you did your job a little better instead of sitting on desk smoking cigarettes and playing cop all day.” “kid, I’m sorry.” Ting went the elevator. I raised my gun to my right shoulder holding it with two hands. I ran to towards the storeroom. It was empty. “stupid elevator.” I said in anguish. They left a piece. I put my gun back in my pockets.  

 It’s a diamond necklace come to think of it, this piece was reported stolen last week.  Ah, nothing here make sense.  My phone has a blueprint of his hotel. I checked my phone but the battery died. Okay, there must be somewhere near here where they can load a truck. I walked back to the hall. The door leading to the staircase is open. Up or down. Alright, we’re in the basement so technically down would have to led to the garage. “Hello, this is MC requesting backup.” Calling onto my earpiece as I headed down the stairs. I found the truck, cleverly hid by false assumptions: using pastries truck. “You look in for something there?” said a woman. “chat noir!” feeling alarmed I ducked and swapped to face her. Then I gave a punch her in the face. “oh, why did you that?” one of her guys was behind. I could feel his figure behind my back. Baba came in just in time to take him down, who thought I ‘d be thankful that I have Mr. Womanizer here to save me. Two others came out from the truck. Baba hit the guy that was heading for me. “why are you helping?” the other guy was aiming at Baba I grabbed his arm and tackled him on the floor. “you were in distress.” Chat noir was running away. I went to catch up but the guy on the floor grabbed my legs. I kicked him with my heels. “no, she’s running away.” “Don’t worry, we got it covered.” I can’t trust him. “watch out” I shouted. The other guy was holding a gun. Baba held it and turned facing his back to the back. With his elbow, he hit him abdomen then at his face. Then he took the gun and pointed it at the other guy. I cuffed them with my handcuffs and surprisingly, Baba had a spare on. I don’t want to even think why he has such a thing. Too bad Chat Noir made an escape.
Finally, sound came out my ear set. “Mc are you there?” “yes, where is the squad right now.” “Kishi is leading us to Chat Noir.” “keep an eye on Mamoru.” I looked at Baba for further explanation. “sorry, my lady.” (Click) he handcuffed one hand. How is it possible that he has more handcuff that an MPD officer? Before he was about to cuff the other hand, I gave him a side kick. Damn this uniform. “MC, where are you?” one of the squad is calling. “in the garage. Not sure if it’s first or second floor.” I answered while lupin is still down. I looked around “It’s level 4 B3” I continued. I searched his pocket for the key. I let my guard down too soon. He grabbed my hand and cuffed my other hand. I couldn’t even have a chance to reach my gun in time.
He stood up with his left cheek is a little swollen. He scooped me up in both of his arms. I shook my legs vigorously hoping he’ll either let me down or I’ll fall. Struggling with all my might but it’s all in vain. He climbed the stairs and to the elevator he entered. Because of his silly pink furry handcuffs, people thought we were a couple deeply in love. The women thinking he’s dreamy and men cheering on him. Even a couple in the middle age were looking at us as if we’re a sprout of love. They all left on the ground floor. None of us talked to the other. My heart speeded up again. I hope he doesn’t notice it.10th floor,11th floor. I hate that I have to resort to this. I fluttering my eyelashes at him trying to act cute as possible. “lupin, let me go!” I demanded mastering the cutest smile I can. “you know I can’t, sweetheart.” I laid my head on his board chest. I gave out a big long sigh. “so, I’ll be the bottom of the ocean. I’ll be no. more. I suppose this is the risk when you sign up for this kind of job.” I got it off my chest. He continued carrying me in bridal manner till we reached a room door 1407. He carried me like a baby with one arm, searching his pocket for the room card. “room 1407?” I called onto the ear set.  “sorry for that, princess.” He punched the card opening the door to huge suite. He laid me on one of the twin beds. Now that I can see a better view. My whole apartment is nothing compared to this.
He leaned in again to confiscate my ear rings. Man, I just got those back. His fingertips brushed my earlobe. My cheeks felt warmer. I’m sure it’s all pink. “ahem,” he blurted out of blue. “what?” he took the rest of my things: my cell phone, badge, gun and my necklace. This time they’re out of site. Baba stepped out for a second. I wiggled my way out of bed and walked to the dresser. Gun, masks, ahh, where does he keep the key for this thing. Carefully not to touch any of the evidence. The door is opening again. I jolted onto the bed.        

I threw myself way too strong. I wiggled myself to sit up right. I folded my legs and sat pretending I didn’t do anything. I glanced at the dresser checking if I left the drawer open. Instead of Baba or the other gang members a cop came in. He looked around then saw where I was seated soon rushed towards me. I released my legs laying them on the ground he had his cap low keeping me from seeing his eyes. He had his brown hair tied up in a ponytail. He took out a bobby pins and untied those silly fluffy handcuffs. “How did you know I was here?” “no time.” He took me hand and dragged out of the room. I can’t keep up although he’s just walking hastily. We passed by Baba who’s knocked out laying the hall. “you did that!” he’s really out. I went to check his pulse. Ah, still breathing. Others were coming on both sides. Ota in on side and Eusike and Soryu on the other hand. That cop grabbed my hands leading me into the room again. He shut the opened door behind him. He opened a window. Then looked out. Oh no, he won’t. he couldn’t. And… he climbed out. No, he didn’t. I growled at him. I point my head of the window. all the background noises were just another cause to -calm me down-. He glided to the end of the porch, holding tight. He stopped below a balcony pulling himself up. Dazed upon his skills unable to speak. The ability to pull himself like that then flip over like an acrobat. “why the hold up?” I tried to follow. I climbed over then stupidly and unintentionally I dared to look down. People were ants. I could see police cars all the way up here. The door clicked and I glided. Thankfully, no breeze or I would I’ve died freezing in this silly uniform. Step, step I repeated, holding tight with all my might, trying to see where that balcony is to get this over with. Soryu pulled his head out as soon as I was few of steps away from the balcony. “come on hurry, we don’t have much time.” The cop called. I glanced once more at that window. I froze when I saw Soryu pulling out his gun. I swallowed with fear. I had to move faster with the gun pointed at me. Upon my haste my leg slipped and my shoe fill off. I breathed heavily to calm my heart as soon as I was pulled myself together. I proceeded. I hid behind a pillar to protect myself the gunshots. Eusike pulled Soryu back and took the lead following my path. I continued once again till I reached the balcony. I fixed my hands on the balcony floor trying to pull myself up as that cop did. I pushed my legs on the wall to give myself a lift. I grabbed on the small pillars, this time my legs were up between them.  Waiting for my arrival, the cop took me waist carrying me to the inside.
I took a glimpse where we are? I’m back to their lounge where they kept me tied to the chair. Once I was settled in, he called through his walkie-talkie “I’m in.” I walked through the room. My left leg hurt whenever I was on the cold floor. I sat on the sofa to take look on my foot. What I feared, it’s badly scratched. I looked around for first aid or something to cool my legs off. I didn’t notice this before but that cop is nowhere to be found. I took the stairs to an opened door where he ferreting around. his hair is about the length and the same degree my hair used to be. He couldn’t possibly be then who’s the girl we encountered. One way to find out. “what are looking for, Chaton? He stopped his rummage and looked up. “I didn’t think you’d figure it out this quick?” neither did I. He took of his hat showing his bangs, then put on his glasses on his honey colored eyes from his pockets. “a diamond necklace, perhaps.” He smirked after those words.
“that’s not the only thing.” “oh, that’s right. You needed to show Ichinomiya corporation that you are to overpass them by stealing the auction items making them the subject of every criminal for not getting the deal they want by thinking they wanted to mock them.” “no wonder you were chosen this case you’re have a quite a technique there. but, I’m aiming for a better prize.” he took few steps closer.” “they just took something really precious I’m taking it back.”

anonymous asked:

hey i'm so interested in any of your persona 5 theories because of how you broke down the trailer for the goro theory! just wondering, how does everyone know his codename is definitely "crow"? do you think the mc will talk to him as a civilian first, since he's going to be the last member to join?

Okay I’m just gonna say this right of the bat, I barely speak any Japanese, so a lot of my translations come from the lovely @domi-persona and @nenilein!

Okay, so, for the “Crow” thing, I can’t find a confirmed source, but here’s where the whole “Heist ID” thing started.

On May 5th, during the “Take Tokyo Tower” event, Atlus unveiled the newest PV; PV 04. I was actually in school at the time, screaming that I couldn’t watch it (due to NicoNico and Twitch being blocked) until I found a a stream on YouTube.

In this PV, we were introduced to three new characters, Makoto Nijima, Futaba Sakura, and Haru Okumura. But I’m going to focus on Futaba.

Futaba is our Navigator, which, as everyone knows, is the person who tells us what’s going on in our dungeons. Considering that the “trigger” that allows the protagonists to go fight Shadows (such as the Dark Hour in P3 or the Midnight Channel in P4) is an app, Futaba has each of their usernames. They are shown at 3:21, but to save you the time of watching the whole video, I have the screenshot here, along with the translations.

This led to a bunch of theories about who’s who, but in case you need a refresher, here’s what is confirmed.

  • Joker - Protag
  • Skull - Ryuji
  • Queen - Makoto
  • Panther - Anne
  • Inari - Yusuke
  • Noir - Haru

Where were these confirmed?

Right here!

Here we can see our main characters, along with the remaining three members’ names.

  • Morgana - Mona
  • Futaba - Navi
  • Goro - Cr and what appears to be an O

The fandom just took it as his Heist ID being Crow, and ran with it. And honestly, unless his ID is Crobat, I think we’re right on the money.

As for how he meets the protagonist, I think it could go a couple different ways.

  1. The most likely one is that he meets in a Naoto-esque way. He’s investigating in public early in the game and meets the Phantom Thieves. He becomes a Cooperation with the power to manipulate the way the police investigate the thieves become joining.
  2. The wonderful user @lightybulb pointed out that Goro wears a very similar uniform to Yusuke, who is confirmed to go to a different school than the protagonist. The post is here. Going with that, Goro could already know Yusuke through class, and meets the Phantom Thieves through him, most likely by accident. He becomes a Cooperation, etc. (I’m actually writing a fanfiction based on this)

What I’m really hoping for is that Atlus doesn’t make him the traitor. It’s too obvious. I think he’ll end up being a Red Herring.

And if he’s Justice Arcana, I will scream.

OPEN LETTER FROM AN AROMANTIC TO THE ALLOSEXUAL AND ALLOROMANTIC COMMUNITY
