der_gewinner: (I object to this WALL!)
Hallo again! Did you miss me? Of course you did!

This has been a busy week for me. After the shenanigans of the police auction, I put myself to the task of learning to ride my new motorcycle. It's awesome. I finally learned how to balance, but my bruises are more purple than my shirt! I'd post pictures, but it has come to my attention that there are children on this feed.

Achtung! I have also started a band. We are still holding auditions for drummers, but until we have our act together you can catch us at Jammin' Java Saturday nights.

But it has not been all fun and games. Achtung! I have finally persuaded my mentor, Prosecutor Lee Shore, that I am ready to run a trial on my own. He was preoccupied as ever with a raid, but when I took his keyboard away and threatened to delete his druid's zehr expensive plate armour, he was keen to talk man to man, ja? I will pick my first case from next week's docket. This will be sweet!

Dunno, man. I'm still kinda iffy about the bassist guy we talked to last week. Seems shady, if you know what I mean.

Congrats on the trial. When is it?

Date: 2010-04-21 07:21 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
I'll find out next week. Under America's current trial system, cases are processed and verdicts made very quickly, ja? I will get to choose my own adventure from next week's crimes, next week.

Herr Rippner told us he works in Vice. Of course he will look shady, D-man.

...

Did... you get to see his badge, by chance?

All right. Tell me all about it when you find out. Sounds pretty awesome.

Uh, no? I thought you did, since you were doing most of the talking!

We were talking, not flashing.

This... could be a problem.

He said his name was Jack, right? And Jack is a diminutive of John? I'm going to try and find him on the LAPD roster...

Date: 2010-04-21 07:46 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] dcrescendo.livejournal.com
Seriously?! That can take WEEKS, man!

Not from my privileged position. Gimme a minute, D-man.

There are six men on the force who go by John or Jack Rippner.

...

...

None of them are in Vice.

We need a new bassist.

Shit, man! Seriously, if you didn't have your connections, we'd probably be dealing with a con man or some shit like that.

Date: 2010-04-21 07:53 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] dcrescendo.livejournal.com
And I'm also gonna give that lying sack of shit a piece of my mind, and shove my foot through his teeth!

You will do no such thing. If you're convicted of battery, how will you get into the academy?

Date: 2010-04-22 06:45 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] dcrescendo.livejournal.com
Guess you gotta point, but I'm still gonna slap that son of a bitch around.

Date: 2010-04-21 02:59 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] alphashifu.livejournal.com
Hope you enjoy the motorcycle, kid. Took a lot of effort to make my men stop bidding on it.

Date: 2010-04-21 10:47 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
Your men are very good to you, Herr Shifu. It is an awesome bike. Perhaps when you are in Los Angeles again, we might ride together.

Date: 2010-04-21 11:55 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] alphashifu.livejournal.com
Ah ha ha ha ha ha! Nah, you don't have to worry about that: I don't ride behind anyone. But sure, I'll stop by and see how you cleaned it up. I am pretty curious.

Date: 2010-04-22 12:05 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
It's going to be awesome, when I have the money for detailing. I want to paint her purple. I don't care if the Nickel Samurai fanboys think I'm a n00b, I don't care if it's sacrilege. I want it to be my ride, not a souvenir of Herr Engarde.

Perhaps I'll have to stop by at some point and catch your act, Mr. Gavin! Good luck assembling your musical group.

And good luck with your first case! I hope it's an excellent one. Prosecutor is such an honorable profession. You're so fortunate to have such a long and exciting career ahead of you.

Also, I think I met a relative of yours at the police auction. He looked a great deal like you and was also named Gavin: a Mr. Kristoph Gavin.

Date: 2010-04-21 10:48 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
There is no need for that, Ambassador. You have my word to bring our act to you, after all, and I am a man of my word.

Date: 2010-04-22 06:05 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] dearestdiplomat.livejournal.com
Oh of course, I would expect no less, Mr. Gavin!

I look forward to it. :D

I can play a drum, pal! When I was a kid, my mom used to dress me up as the "little drummer boy" on Christmas and had me perform in front of all our neighbors and relatives.

Date: 2010-04-21 08:41 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] duck-gimshoe.livejournal.com
Come to think of it, I'm glad they eventually did away with that tradition...

You are not the drummer we are looking for.

Date: 2010-04-21 11:35 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] duck-gimshoe.livejournal.com
You didn't even hear me play, pal.

Date: 2010-04-21 11:41 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
You want to go home and rethink your life.

Date: 2010-04-22 07:49 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] duck-gimshoe.livejournal.com
....?

Date: 2010-04-22 07:49 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] duck-gimshoe.livejournal.com
If you say so, pal.
... So wait- hold it.

Which is it? You're... in a band, or you're a prosecutor?

I am both. Achtung! I am starting a band with other people who work in the justice system.

Date: 2010-04-23 06:05 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
...Unfortunately, the only involvement our last bassist had with the criminal justice system was from the dock.

Y-You're actually being serious?

Isn't uh, your primary job supposed to be... pretty time consuming?

Date: 2010-04-23 06:17 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
You wouldn't know it, to watch my mentor. When we're not in court, he spends a lot of time on his computer. He has a level 70 druid and a six-sim household to babysit, or so he tells me. It is a very laid back office, ja?

Date: 2010-04-23 06:24 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] capslockchords.livejournal.com
That doesn't sound like any professional's office I've ever heard of, to be honest.

Date: 2010-04-24 02:40 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
If you don't believe me, come and see for yourself. Suite 1208 in the High Prosecutors' Office. Evidence is everything, ja?
... Seriously?

A-Alright. I'll have to ask my parents first but uh... sure.

Looks to me like that rock star dream of yours is getting a lot closer to becoming a reality. I'm actually gonna be at Jammin' Java Saturday night for a while, so hopefully I'll get the chance to see you perform.

And congratulations on the first trial - hopefully you get a case to remember!

Date: 2010-04-24 02:41 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
Thank you, fraulein! I am looking forward to Saturday. We will rock you!
