[Dirk Strider is not a perfect student who suddenly broke all his fine, pristine records for a game. Dirk Strider is a kid who came as a mess out of the system. His records are well-kept and normal until he was ten: parents dead, looked after by his older brother. He had all his shots, hospital records for anything serious, grade school attendance and sharp grades. Teachers noted he had problems with following the rules and obeying organized times (he was famously bad at naps in kindergarten) but all the teachers that were good and cared commented on the brightness and intelligence. Weirdly inexpressive, though.

Then his big brother died when he was ten. The records change: custody moved the kid into the system and he was shunted between foster homes. He was caught running away several times. Then he stopped being caught. Smart kid is smart at computer manipulation and there's a trail of small ATM thefts which turns into skimming money off of bank accounts. The kid is pathological about robbing from 'Bad' people, CEOs involved in labour-exploiting acts, known mob bosses. His hacks are mostly done through remote AIs, and he has always set up someone equally bad to take the fall. He was a very socially conscious thirteen year old.

He comes back into official records at age fourteen, a charge for graffiti. Then he's gone again and reappearing under a half-dozen aliases with the same kinds of crimes.

It's a digital record of crime that trails halfway across the United States. It took five years to get him back to Houston. And now that he's back home?

Now that he's home, Dave gets to watch him as he snatches a number off a telephone pole. The nautilus symbol is on it, of course. Does he pursue the kid as Dirk tries to get lost into the city again or does he take another path?]

[Then he can enjoy trailing Dirk all the way to GPS coordinates. It's a graffiti'd wall! Wow look the nautilus symbol appeared again. Mysterious. There is possibly some kind of puzzle here, who knows. Dirk is staring at it either way. And then heβ€”vanishes?

Huh where did he go. Maybe around that building? There are also cars. Where did a kid disappear to.

Pursue or divert?]

[He'll perhaps notice the scuff-marks that show someone just slipped into this abandoned, boarded-up building. He may even sense a person who watches him through the boarded windows. But the kid is not coming out of there.

The kid is, in fact, taking a few pictures of his own to see if he can match up or confirm any identities. He isn't sure it's this dude, but he has a sense he noticed him around before. If his stalker is playing the game, Dirk will be able to find out pretty soon.]

[ok that's fine dave? the kid is not immediately approaching. the building is awful, and some of the floorboards are dead gone. Signs of disturbance in dust and refuse from other squatters may indicate a path deeper into the building, towards one of the rooms where the windows were not boarded up as securely as the others.]

[NOPE that kid's out the window and running. Dave will either have to chase him down or try to find him again. Obviously, he will no longer be in the hotel he was one staying at under a pseudonym. None of his false identities will be active anywhere, in fact. If he's somewhere, it's a totally new name right now.

So, will Dave chase him down while he runs, or will he be forced to use Rose to solve the next puzzle?]

[God. This is not as busy a street as he wants it to be. How does he lose this guy? This guy in way too nice a suit. What the fuck?]

Okay, you're fuckin' insane, and I am not engagin'. Fuck off, dude.

[Dirk thought he picked up tails but then Dave came in so he assumed that he was wrong about those and that Dave was it. Now the way Dave is talking? Is really, really freaking him out.

Dirk does not keep a gun on his person, but he does have a knife literally up his sleeve. He hasn't gone for it yet but he absolutely looks like he is ready to pick a fight with this freaky, unsettling stranger.]


That's really comfortin', dude. I am feelin' soft and cozy as a kitten on a fuzzy blanket.

[The paperwork reference means this dude is possibly a cop, and that's what is keeping Dirk from springing the knife. If this dude is a cop, he could arrest him for trespassing at least. Dirk could probably plead that he got freaked out at being tailed but he doesn't want to go to court to do it. Dealing with the system is his least favourite thing, and it will be a huge delay in his efforts to win the game.

All of this means Dirk is feeling cornered, and a cornered Dirk is not a happy one. There are cars on this street but not any and none he could jack in front of a cop without being caught. Dude can definitely keep pace with him which fucking sucks and if he gives him cause to nab him he's fucked. Where are the exit routes? He'd have to vanish but last time he was spotted. A trail, he figures, so get a place to vanish that wouldn't leave that. One street south is busy enough to vanish into if he ditches the jacket, maybe. But how does he get there.

Holy shit he does not want to be doing this right now.]


What the fuck do you want?

[Even if he is a cop he's clearly not objecting to the cursing so Dirk will not be filtering that out.]

[Dirk notes the eye movements and when he does he registers it: tails. Shit.

He doesn't trust this guy, at all. 'Keep you safe' hits him somewhere he doesn't like and he was never a very expressive kid (his brother never condemned that in him) but right now all the lines of his body say he's ready to hit abscond or aggrieve.

Dirk makes the fall fast. Let this weirdo get him out of whatever this situation, then shake him. He'll handle these tails (other players?) when he needs to.]


Sure. What-the-fuck-ever, dude.

[personal profile] splinten 2017-03-27 03:25 am (UTC)(link)
[There's a tension. Sharp delay. Run or follow? But there are tails to shake and fuck this guy for wanting to teach him shit. Dirk could hit him if he weren't a fucking cop.

Dirk follows but he doesn't say a single thing in reply. The body language says Dave is still walking beside a badly contained livewire.]

[personal profile] splinten 2017-03-27 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
[Dirk doesn't like the way Dave smiles. It's easy and comfortable and it's fake-not-fake, the kind of smile that doesn't matter. He watches and even stubborn as he is he won't totally throw out the information being given to him but he doesn't have to appreciate it. His expression has reverted into a contained anger, something barely noticeable as not being neutral.

He still isn't talking. He is, however, using eye movement to make his shades look up the clue he just found for the three-pronged arch.

Look if random dude in this show got lame google glasses, i'm giving Dirk his really helpful computershades. that level of scifi is totally POI legit.]

[personal profile] splinten 2017-03-27 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
[Dirk's shoulders get really, really tense. It was probably being asked to go down a shady alley and look the other way.]

I can take care of it myself. Just back off-dude.

[He'll disappear. He knows how to on a street as busy as this one. He can get away.]
