three thieves

i’m hissing i just realized that parker, hardison, and eliot holding hands was like… a thing that nate felt he needed to draw attention to? like that was a long time in his story? this was something he thought was relevant information. he needed them to know that they were all poly. it was very important to him that interpol knew he was working with three polyamorous thieves.

Ciao, lovely! How are you? Have you heard about the rare book heist in London?

Hello - I’ve been really great though busy. It’s wonderful to hear from you again. I had heard about it, the media is really buzzing with excitement from this and the Mission Impossible comparisons seem to be endless!

For those of my followers who haven’t heard, there was a major heist in London recently.The most valuable book taken was a 1566 copy of De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium by Nicolaus Copernicus. Additional works stolen include those by Dante, Isaac Newton and Leonardo da Vinci. The choices seem to have been meticiulous and based upon the highest values. 

“Three thieves robbed a west London warehouse in late January by drilling holes in the building’s skylight, and then using rope to descend vertically into the space to avoid motion-detection alarms, George Sandeman at The Guardian reports. In total, the robbers made out with more than 160 books worth an estimated $2.5 million.”  (Smithsonian Magazine)

Marichat May: Day 5

Day 5: Protective Marinette

(also vaguely inspired by @ladybeug and her hilarious protective Marinette art <3)

He meant to carry her away from the scene of the crime, but he nearly lost an eye in the skirmish. Though his baton rolled away as he fell to the wet ground, the smirk never left his lips. He knew he could take them; it was her he worried about. She was just a civilian after all.

But before he could get back on his feet, he saw a flash of silver—his baton flew across and knocked the three thieving men off their feet, then came boomeranging back to him. Catching it, he turned his head toward the source only to see her standing there, tall and proud, with a grin as smug as his Lady’s.

“Did you just—”

“Well, you were preoccupied, so someone had to act.”

“Damn, Marinette. You could have been hurt.”

“Speak for yourself.”

This girl, his classmate, a mere civilian…she was something else.

Chapter 805

One of my favourite oneshots ever is the Three Thieves omake where the officers of Division 1 revealed that they had taken bets on who or what Conan was, with options including a genetic experiment, a mass hallucination, the subject of mind control , an alien or a doll “possessed by the vengeful spirit of… something”. 

Right now, there are three professional detectives genuinely considering all of these options

Houston Police Search for Wannabe Thieves Who Knocked Over ATM

The Houston Police Department is on the hunt for three suspected thieves who used a vehicle to ran an ATM on January 17. This video was published by Crime Stoppers in Houston, Texas, on February 9.

According to the police, the ATM was located at a bank in the 100 block of Greens Road. The suspects used a stolen Tan Ford F250 to ram into the ATM, at which time they attempted to use a crowbar to pry open the cash machine. They were unsuccessful. Credit: YouTube/CrimeStopHouston via Storyful

Book Recommendations

Throne of Glass | Sarah J Maas
+Genre: fantasy & young adult
My rating: 6/5

“You could rattle the stars,“ she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”  

In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass–and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

Shadow and Bone | Leigh Bardugo
+Genre: fantasy & young adult
My rating: 5/5

“The problem with wanting,” he whispered, his mouth trailing along my jaw until it hovered over my lips, “is that it makes us weak.”  

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha … and the secrets of her heart.

The Raven Boys | Maggie Stiefvater
+Genre: romance & young adult
My rating: 5/5

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love … or you killed him.”

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

Half-napped and sassy

Meet Tira, my halfling cleric who is an inquisitor of knowledge and often a very sassy lady. 

Our party, the Inglorious Misfits, were hired by a foreign ambassador/ mage to guard his caravan on his quest to find a holy artifact (Tira: *mumbles something in halfling with a unpleasant look on her face.* )

One night, the group catches a spell-casting thief in one of the wagons. After a little ordeal, they capture him, his leader, and another one of his compatriots. The Thief (named Qi Tef, future party member *more mumbling*) successfully pickpockets a dagger of of one of the caravan guards and upon being reprimanded by the boss lady(Cat-eye), he raised his now unbound arms in all cockiness.

Tira, driven by intense curiosity on the subject of Qi Tef’s race(DM’s custom) and his people’s culture (She’s quite an anthropologist), opens up the canvas and is greeted by three surprised, freed thieves. After a failed hold person, she is dragged in, muffled, bound, and stripped of weapon and holy symbol. Cat-eye removes the muffle and asks the cleric where the goods can be found. Tira told them that it would likely be stored in the scholars’ wagons or hidden in inconspicuous places, like the ration wagon. When they shot down those, she quickly responded that there may be gold, jewels, and magic items in the head mage’s wagon, BUT you will need someone with the ability to sense such magic.

The group moves to the wagon and present Tira scroll after scroll, each of which was met with a shook of the head no. Qi Tef and the other thief get bored and search the room for other worthwhile items. Cat-eye slowly loosening her attention on Tira as she tries to keep an eye on the others as well. Stealing this opportunity, the halfling reaches into her clothing, drawing out a second holy symbol and tucked it between her hands with freedom to move (rolled a 20, BooYa!).

Leaning forward, she grabs a slightly tanner scroll and called out to Cat-eye. She proceeded in informing her that this seemed to have some magic essence, but she needed to read it to be sure. Cat-eye held it up for her and Tira read off: ‘In the mountains, there is a ancient temple. It contains masses of monetary offerings it had acquired through the years as well as a hold person. Well, Cat-eye’s not moving, Qi Tef is oblivious, and other thief is unsure what just happen, but knows the halfling did something.

The theif moves in with her dagger to swing, *dings off of plate*, returns for a blow to the head, but misses. Tira takes that opportunity to propel into her gut with a headbutt, knocking her into the other wall, and sending the two of them down with a large covered mirror (roll saving throw, ya good). Qi Tef notices and tells the other to shut cleric up. Tira struggles out from under the mirror and sends one last hold person. The cocky one finally stops talking.

Just as Tira starts cutting her bounds, Vicros (dragonborn fighter/leader) opens the tarp prepared to fight. 'Hey, It’s all taken care of.,’ Tira says with a smile.

P.S. The third thief under the mirror disappeared. We find out later that, She didn’t make her saving throw. :P 

P.S.S. IF you want to read more on Tira and her party check out the blog rent-a-cleric. (#ShamefulAdvertising, :/ sorry)

Love this blog and I’ll be back to share more! (As well as hypnotize the other players to post here too!) #<3D&DBlogs #SubmissionsAllAround
