GUESS WHAT, MOTHERFUCKERS? WE ARE THE COPS THIS TIME. No matter what branch of law enforcement, this is where you belong. White collar crime, drug busts, unraveling conspiracies in small towns in the countryside because your boss is a prick, whatever. In any case it's your job to make sure criminals can't get away with it. You and your partner are going to get the job done whether you get along or not. Or maybe you fly solo and your roleplaying partner is playing the criminal. Hell, maybe you're John McClane against the world! It doesn't matter: what does matter is justice. Get out there, get it sorted! Catch that swan!

[The second one of the Turks showed up, stopping at the edge of the coagulating pool of blood, Cloud had expected to be dismissed, no matter what his superior had said about staying on the scene. Wasn't like he had any protest he could make (well, aside from that mission months ago, he hadn't let anything stop him from trying to stay with the professor then) if the Turk told him to leave.

Hadn't happened yet, though, and Cloud leaned in a little, scrunching his nose at the overwhelming stink of blood and shit permeating the alley. Didn't look like a robbery, even one gone bad; despite laying on the ground and soaked in his own blood, the man looked almost pristine. And...

Frowning, Cloud took a step to the left and tilted his head, trying to get a better angle from the streetlight because he looked somewhat familiar---]

... Isn't that--- [Cutting his soft, distracted mutter off and ducking his head, Cloud bit his lip. One of Scarlet's aides. He wouldn't even know that if he hadn't been among the few unlucky from his platoon diverged from their usual morning training routine a week ago to play escort for her. That guy had been with her then...]
reno4prez: (bored now)

evil is such a strong word... Reno prefers to think of ShinRa's methods more as... alternative

[personal profile] reno4prez 2017-03-20 06:21 am (UTC)(link)
[Another day, another fucking nastyass mess left out all nice and sticky-like for him to cover up. All in the line of duty, or some shit. And don't get him wrong, the espionage and the blowing shit up part of the job was great. The clean-up? Not so much.

Thing was, dead bodies turning up in the back alleys of Midgar proper weren't all that unusual. But ShinRa employees, especially the ones with the honest jobs? That was a whole other ball game. There'd been a string of these murders over the past couple months – aides to higher-ups and white-collar office monkeys who spent more time in their cubicles pushing papers than seeing the light of day - so, yeah, no one important, right? Not people who'd made any kinda name for themselves in the company, but people high enough on the food chain for the brass to start taking notice. And the brass were none too happy.

Reno recognized this guy all right. Scarlet went through aides like most normal people went through condoms; but this guy, this guy had stuck around longer than most. Probably 'cause he'd had a pretty face, but hey. Reno wasn't gonna judge. Whatever kept her happy kept the rest of them out of her line of fire.]

Well, shit. [Reno flicked the end of his cigarette into the pool of blood that was congealing fast on the ground, the butt letting off a few last feeble tendrils of smoke before drowning in the sludge. Digging in his pocket, he produced a rumpled pack and lit another, peering down at the body with a bored expression.] Scarface's gonna throw a fuckin' fit when she finds out.
backwatertrooper: (concerned - console the chocobo)

yeah I guess we can go with that. Like alternative facts.

[personal profile] backwatertrooper 2017-03-20 07:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[Biting down on something that was more like reluctant amusement rather than disapproval to Cloud's embarrassed horror, he took half a step back out of the spreading pool of blood. Watching the dissipating smoke and then up to the man's face again, staring at the nearly comically surprised look he seemed to have gotten stuck with in death, he grimaced.

His stomach turned, and Cloud told himself it was the smell and not because he'd seen the man walk after Scarlet a week ago, the only one of four in her entourage who'd escaped from being yelled at or condescended to (well, excluding the four infantry playing escort).]

... Did they know that? [Glancing to the Turk even if his helmet mostly hid the look, Cloud hesitated before he continued, softly;] Or was he just... convenient?

[It probably was the latter, honestly - what did he know? - but it just seemed pretty... stark, that the one of Scarlet's aides laying there in his own congealing blood was the only one Scarlet had seemed to treat nominally well, whatever the reason.]
reno4prez: (excuse me?)

[Reno's eyes narrowed, gaze sliding to peer sidelong at the uniform next to him. Pretty sharp call, for a trooper. And right on the money, too. Color him impressed. Yeah, there was definitely something big about to go down here. Nobodies or not, the execs connected to the murder victims were too specific – the targets too calculated to hit them where it hurt - to be anything but coordinated, premeditated hits. Anyone with half a brain who bothered to check the facts could see that; these murders were meant to send a clear message to the upper echelons of ShinRa.

'Course, hell if Reno knew what that message was, but details, details.]

Fucked him up good either way, poor asshole.

[Reno half-turned to the infantryman, lifting the cigarette to his lips and taking a long drag as he sized the guy up. For sure the murders were connected, but whoever it was pulling the strings in the background was doing a damn good job of making them look random. So far, ShinRa was playing right along. No point showing your hand before all the cards were on the table, and they didn't stand half a chance at spotting an invisible opponent's tell if they couldn't keep up a decent poker face themselves. Besides, they'd be up shit creek without a paddle if word got out to the civs that they might have a serial killer on their hands.]

Whaddya know?
backwatertrooper: (helmet - talking)

[Turning when the Turk did, Cloud ducked his head at the question, flushing awkwardly. Why was he asking him - or well. Why not? He was the one who found the guy (because he was on his patrol circuit) and had sort of made some aborted noise that he recognised him.

Shaking his head as he straightened back up, Cloud shifted his helmet, uncomfortably aware of a few bangs lying all wrong.]

Um... found him fifteen minutes before you turned up, but I didn't see anyone nearby. [A pause as Cloud reflexively glanced down at the guy again, frowning underneath the weight of his helmet and continued softly;] I reported it instead of trying to look for whoever did it, even if... they should've been close considering this is still congealing. I got pulled to escort Scarlet a week ago, and he was the only one that didn't really... get yelled at.

[Why go after him anyway? Cloud really didn't get it, because in the bigger scheme of things, all this guy had going for him was that Scarlet liked him, and that seemed... an awfully petty and awful reason to kill someone.]

And, I was told to stay on the scene by my superior.

[He still didn't get that one; sure, it was his job to, but no matter who'd have turned up to deal with this, if they told him to leave they'd undoubtedly have the authority to make him do that.]
reno4prez: (pissed)

[personal profile] reno4prez 2017-03-23 05:31 am (UTC)(link)
[Reno watched the trooper closely, sharp eyes not missing a single twitch or fidget or shift of weight. Seriously, the hell kinda cadets were they graduating these days? This kid seemed green as his granny's dentures, fiddling with his helmet like some kinda rookie. Whatever, not Reno's problem. He had asked the right question right of the bat, and that was nothing to spit at.

Though he showed no outward sign of what he was thinking, here was something intense about the Turk despite the relaxed slouch of his shoulders and the casual way he stood with one hand shoved deep into the pocket of his wrinkled slacks. It was the piercing weight of his gaze, maybe, or the liquid precision that seemed to characterize his every movement. Like something dangerous carefully contained under a veneer of practiced control, ready and waiting to be unleashed at any moment. He never moved except to lift his cigarette to his lips as he listened, quiet for an almost uncomfortably long time before he asked:]

What's your name, kid?
backwatertrooper: (looking up - alert)

[personal profile] backwatertrooper 2017-03-23 10:19 pm (UTC)(link)
[Definitely silent for a very long, uncomfortable moment and Cloud forced himself to not hold his breath while he waited. In fact, as the silence lengthened he straightened back up; nervous and a little confused or not he hadn't done anything... well, aside from finding this guy.

And noticing their schedules in general had been wrecked to hell at least the last two months, with increasing patrols put on the office levels for no obvious reason. At least no obvious one until he'd found this guy...]

Cloud Strife. [Maybe taking off his helmet at this point was ill-advised, but the Turk's sharp gaze on him or not, Cloud didn't really care. Wasn't like he couldn't find out what he looked like even if he didn't do that or even if he didn't tell him his name. So he took it off and tucked it under his arm, meeting Reno's eyes flatly - it was similar and yet really different from the other Turks he'd met, and it was almost kind of interesting to compare.]

Don't think that's gonna help with this, though...

[Of the two, Geo is the nice cop, the people person, the one that actually can deal with nearly any situation that gets thrown at her. She's got a hell of a shot and definitely a few questionable driving habits.

But she definitely can't take down a person with physical strength alone. Such is life. You can't have everything, and Geo's pretty okay with that.

Strength in numbers, right? Hope's not so bad. Usually she's the one behind the wheel, not Geo. Not exactly easy trying to communicate while driving when you need your hands or something to dictate for you.

Geo begins to rapidly text, before holding the phone up as they drive to their destination.]

[If this were a movie, Hope was more than aware that she would be labeled the rebellious rookie cop with an attitude, who, through a friendship with her perkier partner and perhaps some quirky bonding situations, would change her tune and find faith again in humanity. While she liked Geo just fine, since she was an ace shot ( Hope didn't even hold a candle to her when it came to that ) and did make interacting with most of the populace easier, Hope couldn't say her attitude had been improved quite yet.

They had been called out to check out an abandoned house, which had suspicious activity during the past few weeks. It could just be a place where teenagers were causing trouble, people were meeting up to buy drugs, or something innocuous.

She glanced at the corner of her eye at the text, nodding at the question.

I doubt we'll need back up, but I'll call it before we go in.

[The house was only a few blocks away, but still-]

You ready?
thesilence: (pensive)

[Geo nodded, though she couldn't say she was particularly prepared for this. Without a lot to go on, it's hard to really brace yourself outside outside of being braced for anything.

The young cop glanced out the window, watching the houses, the trees, the people go by.

She couldn't help but cock her head at a group of a few people who seemed to be watching them too. They seemed to be walking slowly, ambling really, but something...

Geo whistled for attention, just loud enough to force Hope's attention to the people outside. Could she see it too, maybe?]

[For someone who couldn't speak, Geo could let herself be known in other ways. Hope wasn't sure sometimes if she was grateful for it or not, but she let her gaze slide over to what her partner was looking at, putting her sunglasses up on her head to help better her view. They were definitely moving oddly, but they could be drunk or drugged up. For now, she was just going to keep her eye on them, nodding to her partner as they pulled up to the house.

As she got out, she kept her hands near her side, ready to draw if she needed to, but for now she was going to head up to the house, which had definitely seen better days. Everything looked like it was one step away from crumbling. In their car, it had been nice and pleasant, but out here, something reeked like something had died.

She glanced back at Geo, gesturing for her to watch her back when she went to knock on the door.
