Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
Night in Los Angeles, the City of Angels. A glorious tourist spot by day, by night a growing infrastructure for crime. There have been rumors and sightings however of someone garbed in red, doing what they could to stem the rising tide of crime that seemed to encompass the city.

Tonight, in the industrial section of LA, a small band of four individuals, masked and garbed in black, penetrate an office park, their malevolent intentions known only to themselves. Would a hero intervene in this seemingly small and out of the way crime?

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     A silent alarm tripped and remotely contacted the police.  When the call went out, Dee Dee heard the call on her scanner and realized that the office park was just ahead of her.  Shifting lanes, the sequined dress she was wearing morphed into a dark red, full-body catsuit and her heels changed to soft leather boots.

     Picking up her phone, she texted Persephone and let her know that she would be late for 'girl's night,' not that she'd been particularly looking forward to it anyway.

     Killing her lights as she entered the parking lot of the address, she slowly circled the building looking for any suspicious light or movement inside, or for anything that looked like a 'getaway' car parked nearby.  If there was a driver, she could knock them out and then maybe 'replace' them, or just hover near their 'exit' and knock them out as they departed. Going inside and trying to track them down would be a pain.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
Dee Dee did indeed see what appeared to be a getaway car outside, and she could make out a faint shadow of a head in the driver's seat. No one else seemed to be around, at least on the outside, but Dee Dee could see a few different flashes of light inside the building, most likely from flashlights.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     Parking out of sight of the getaway car, Dee Dee slipped out of her truck and shifted forms.  She enhanced her bustline a little, poofed up her hair, added some make-up and pushed her heels up a couple extra inches.  She'd gone from 'cute night out' to 'whore on the prowl' in seconds.

     She began to stalk toward the bank, striding around the corner and toward the parked car, specifically, heading toward the driver's window.  She rapped on the window to get the driver's attention and smiled while she pretended to chew gum.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
The driver saw Dee Dee come up. He was a clean shaven man wearing sunglasses, a hat and trenchcoat.

"What do you want, chickie?" he asked as he slowly cracked the window. Dee Dee could see the metallic shimmer of a handgun in his right hand.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     Dee Dee was unphased.  She leaned on the car and bent down to give him a good view of her cleavage.

     "That all depends on you, Sweetheart.  You like what you see?  Twenty, Fifty, Nintey.  Hand, mouth, ass," she said, running her free manicured hand down over her impressive bosom and then her hips.  Inwardly she was cringing at herself.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
The man looked at Dee Dee "shaking her "stuff." He shook his head, and pointed the gun at Dee Dee.

"Business before pleasure....take off, and if I'm inclined, I'll meet up with ya later to show me your hands, feet and ass."

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     With lightning fast reflexes, Dee Dee grabbed the muzzle of the gun and tried to twist it sideways to pulled it through the window.  She hoped to startle and disarm the man before he could pull the trigger.  When he came out, she could deal with him further.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
Dee Dee grabbed the muzzle, and it twisted, the gun flying into the air, and falling on the ground.

"Awright ya little hussie!" he said, opening the door quickly, trying to push her back. "Now you're gonna get it!"

     Dee Dee dodged the door and swung a strength-enhanced fist into the man's face.

     "Watch your language!" she insisted.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
"Ain't nothin' wrong with my--OOF!" the henchman grunted, Dee Dee's blow impacting his nose.

He shook his head.

"Yu bwoke mah noise, you vitch!!!!!" he said, now trying to punch at Dee Dee.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     Regardless of her appearance, Dee Dee was a skilled martial artist.  She dodged the punch, grabbed his wrist, then flung him onto his face.  Once on the ground, she wrapped her arm around his neck and tried to knock him out.  She reduced the size of her boobs because they were getting annoying.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
The henchman fell unconscious from the chokehold and stopped struggling. Dee Dee could see flashlights inside the building still scurrying around. The car door was still open, however.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     Dee Dee had to make a quick decision.  Try to replace the driver, or to set up a way to ambush the men as they exited the building.  She glanced at the car and smiled.

     Dragging the man into some nearby bushes, she looked him over, getting a sense of his build and clothing.  She may not be able to impersonate men, but she could be a butch woman in similar clothes.

     She duplicated his appearance as best she could, picked up his weapon, and slipped back into the driver's seat.  She quickly took stock of the interior of the car for any evidence and to make sure she knew how to put the car in gear.  She then fastened her seat belt.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
Dee Dee could not find much in the car in the way of evidence, but she did find what appeared to be a ledger.

The first page indicated a meeting at 430 AM on the city docks with someone named The Ebon Claw.

The thieves were still scurrying around, seemingly oblivious to their unconscious comrade.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     Dee Dee checked the time, then leafed through the ledger for as much info as she could.  Once she dealt with these guys, she might have some follow-up work to do.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
Ebon Claw was mentioned two other times in the ledger, and the only other instances found were about provoking a gang war between the two largest criminal factions in town.

The flashlights made their way closer to the front door, and Dee Dee could see the masked men making their way to the car.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     Dee Dee slipped the ledger into her jacket and kept her head low.

     The burglars came barreling out of the building carrying bags and guns.  They hurried to the car, tossed in the bags and jumped into the empty seats.

     "Hit it!" said the one in the passenger seat, right next to Dee Dee.  Without a word, she gunned it, peeling out of the parking lot.

     "All right!  Good job, guys.  Just like clockwork.  I told ya the cops wouldn't get here in time," he bragged, reaching back and swatting at the two in the back seat.

     "Yeah, yeah.  How much did you get?" he asked.  They started comparing bags which all seemed to be full of various folders and envelopes.

     "I got all our records and wiped the hard drives," the black one said.

     Dee Dee only half-listened as she got on the main road and started going faster and faster.  The passenger suddenly noticed.

     "Boyd!  Slow down!  You wanna get us pulled over?" he shouted, swatting at Dee Dee.  She grunted, but he gave her a weird look.

     "Boyd?" he said, leaning closer.

     She suddenly veered off the road into a grassy knoll and crashed directly into a tree.  The passenger went right out the windshield, the black one slammed into the back of her seat, and the heavy one caused the front passenger seat to topple forward and he hit his head on the dashboard.  Only Dee Dee had her seatbelt on.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
The subsequent impact knocked out the thugs that were passengers in the car. The car was undriveable for the most part, but she now had the opportunity to peruse some of the stolen documents.

Above, a police helicopter flew over, a searchlight beaming down around the area where the car crashed.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     Unbuckling herself and checking to see they were all alive, Dee Dee took a moment to rifle through the documents.  She'd flag down the police chopper or cop once they arrived.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
In addition to several references to the Ebon Claw, Dee Dee also found multiple instances of the phrase "The Tide Is Rising."

She didn't find much else other than company vouchers and accounting records.

The police helicopter landed and two men could be seen walking towards the car.

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
     Dee Dee shifted her appearance to her more well-recognized mini-dress and jacket combination, then slowly opened the door and stood with her hands raised.

     "The Red Dress, Sentry number 159," she called out.  "I caught these men robbing a building in the Crosswind Office Park, about a mile back up that way."
Police

Re: Titanverse Tales Starring The Red Dress
The police kept their guns trained on Dee Dee for just a few seconds more, even after she identified herself, then lowered their guns.

"Good work Sentry," one of the policemen said, holstering his gun. "Did you see any others, or are these the only ones who were robbing the office pack."
