And trouble came walking in...

the film noir meme



-Post with your character and fandom, as well as any preferences.
-Go here and generate a random number between 1-10 for the setting
-If you want, you or the person tagging you can roll a number between 1-8 for relationship as well!
- You know what to do next, honey.

Possible settings:

1. Crime Scene: Dead body? Burglary? Whatever the crime, the area's been sectioned off for officers to investigate this nefarious deed, and you're getting front row seat.

2. Bar: There's always some hole-in-the-wall frequented by all sorts. The bartender keeps an eye out for trouble, and other things. Of course he keeps an ear to the ground, but it'll cost ya. Perhaps a cop or two will show up demanding answers, but no one ever takes that seriously.

3. Docks at Night: The breeze caressing your face, the sound of the water, the boats passing by...maybe you were called here, or maybe you just like the peace it brings.

4. Alleyway: There's only one way in and out of this little corridor, and what happens in it is up to you and the other character. Just watch for the shadows, if you can see through the fog.

5. Detective's Office: Not too clean, not too messy. Just perfect for the person that's needed to get this mystery cleared up.

6. Rooftop: The wind dramatically blowing about, it's the perfect place to get that person to come and meet you so you can tell them what you want. Or if you're evil, why not kill them up here? It'll be hard to escape you.

7. Dressing Room: For some reason, you're backstage after a performance, and you've gotten into one of these. The mirrors, the costumes, the flowers from fans and the various personal affects...all are present and will be your silent witnesses to whatever occurs.

8. Hideout: You've gotten to the antagonist's spot of choice. Is this a glitzy nightclub with a private room, or is this an abandoned warehouse where they-or you-carry out their plot? The choice is yours.

9. Nightclub: Someone's showcasing their talent tonight, and you may or may not care about it. But it's classic, dimly lit, and it's easy to hide in here.

10. Free choice

Possible relationships:

1. Friends: Maybe you're an unstoppable team, or perhaps your relationship is getting strained. But whatever the situation, you know this person, and you'd be there for them.

2. Coworkers/teammates/classmates: You might not be friends, but you know this person well enough to remember their name. And right now you're being thrown together for a reason.

3. Lovers: This is the one you wanted to stay with for now. Married, dating, or maybe an affair, but you two care about each other enough.

4. Enemies: Utter hatred flows through your veins when you hear this person's name. This is the one you want to take down, and you just might stop at nothing to achieve your goal.

5. Family: Perhaps it's a sibling you're meeting. Or your parent, or some form of relative. Remember that phrase "blood is thicker than water"? It just might apply here.

6. Mysterious Stranger: Someone's been eyeing you from across the room, or you've been eyeing them. Will you two speak, or shall they float out of your life? Do they hold information you seek, or do they want something from you?

7. Femme Fatale: You are or have encountered a mysterious and seductive woman, whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. Watch out, you might just get yourself into a real mess of trouble, hot stuff.

8. Free Choice

[Though the two races had been reunited on the surface for a while now, something about an all-monster band was still a novelty to humans. Sans didn't mind. It meant money. Being a trombonist in a jazz band started out as a front, but then he got into it.

Unfortunately, tonight wasn't all fun and games. The band on the nightclub stage strikes up again with their own brand of Frank Sinatra, and the skeleton next to them subtly scans over the crowd as he waits for his cue. Pinprick eyes search, picking and choosing for one particular human. Someone they called "The Punisher".

Thankfully, it's not hard to find him. The guy looked more subtle than a firecracker. Eventually, the song ends and the band excuses themselves for a break. They all trickle offstage... save for one. Should Frank choose to hang around, he might notice the skeleton always in his field of vision. No, literally. He'll disappear and reappear into the crowd no matter where you choose to look, Frank.

Bad times maybe idk I'm winging it rn.]

[The devil picked up a line on Frank Castle before he even managed to get himself killed. He would be surprised, if the newspapers didn't tell tales about the man decimating the mafia even more than they talked about the lurker with horns beating muggers half to death. New York was a strange place these days, stranger than Frank had ever known it.

The two of them crossed paths more than once trying to take down the big men of Upper Manhattan, of ones who had hands in copper's pockets, with even bigger guns up their sleeves. What did surprise Frank is that he took more people to hell than the devil ever did, and how it earned him a goddamn earful he didn't need.

So heedless of any warnings or advice, Frank takes his fight to the waterfront, on the edge of the Meatpacking District. He beat the location out of a stoolie for Italians he found among the Irish before putting him out of his misery. Apparently a human trafficking deal was being negotiated away from prying eyes, but he'd end it before it started, on what he hoped would be his own.]

[ A streetlight flickers above the crash site; an oily rainbow slick and glass pebbles all that remains after the truck had been towed away.

Stiles takes another picture of the scene, the flash of his camera bright against evening light. He blinks to clear his vision, looking over towards where Allison is working. ]


You know, for such a bad crash, there's surprisingly little damage.

[personal profile] idkmybffpyramid 2016-04-19 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
[I know some people find writing openers a bitch, so I wrote a couple for y'all instead. Obviously feel free to hit me up with something else if you've got another idea in mind.]

1) BAR//STRANGER
[His ears are ringing, he's got a black eye and a bloody nose and probably more cuts and bruises elsewhere. All in the pursuit of knowledge. Perfectly good cause for a drink, right? Reno certainly thinks getting beat to shit is reason enough to treat himself to a whiskey or two, but there's more to it than that. Could be paranoia, could be good instincts, but he's felt eyes on him since he started dragging himself from that alley he was left in. Couldn't confirm it at the time, not without being obvious, but now in the bar? A cursory look around is enough to spot the source of his discomfort, and Reno rises. Hoping to make their acquaintance.]

[You got a cigarette? Not anymore. Reno takes it as he drops himself on the seat opposite, throwing his feet up on the table with little regard for the manners his mother taught him.]


Anyone ever tell you it's rude to stare?


2) OFFICE//CO-WORKERS
[Reno's particular about his space. There's an 'organised chaos' to the whole thing; his desk looks like a fucking mess, but somehow he always knows where everything is. Doesn't endear him to people who come into his office, looking for a guy to solve their shit for them. But then again people don't come looking for someone neat and tidy, they come looking for someone who gets shit done. Discreetly too, for the right price.]

[Nursing a coffee while he pours over notes for this latest case, he moves a precariously placed notebook off the top of his ashtray so he can go back to mainlining nicotine - his habits always hit worse when he's not sleeping, like now - while he pours over the information he has. It is boring, in case anyone's curious. Might be good at this, but Reno hates busywork, and he's so fucking relieved when he hears the door creak open.]


Good. [Doesn't even look up, just tosses the notes in the direction of the door expecting them to be caught.] Take a look at all that, will you?

[What Reno calls 'organized chaos,' Guy calls a horror show. He's dealt with slobs before - has practically raised a slob, for all intents and purposes - but he hasn't warmed up to the idea of picking up after them. It's a disgrace for any working professional. As his partner, Guy's paid to speak his mind. And he has, subtly and frequently. Judging by the state of the room, Reno still hasn't gotten the message.

He catches the fluttering notebook by its cover, just before it hits the ground. Guy straightens up, eyebrows raising sky high as he snaps shut the notes.]


Good morning to you too, Reno.

[He shoots a look at the ashtray. Guy hates it when Reno smokes. It clogs up the entire room.]

How much have you done?
