You are one of the top CUTECTIVES in the city. (Because you are the only "cutective" in the universe, having invented the brand. You are an, okay, PRIVATE DETECTIVE)
Solicitations for your service are, less than desired in quantity. Compensation, too adequate to pick up the slack comfortably.
Though it was twenty-five years and a few months since you were born, you've only been known as CUTECTIVE for two, three years tops. Before then, you were only called...

Ohhhhhhhhhh, it’s set in Fortuna. Excuse me while I consult the currently relevant Cosmodex articles... Never mind, there doesn’t seem to be articles on Cuteyes or planet Quallris.

Do you have any jobs at the moment? If not, try the local news; there may be classifieds from people with need of an investigator that just haven’t heard of you, or perhaps there’s a recent incident an affected party could want some answers about. If those fail, perhaps the news publisher itself could hire you to dig up some facts for a story.

Also, what Traits do you have? (We obviously don’t want to get blindsided by any quirks in your personality that you could have told us about.)

You are kinda out of ideas on what else to do. You regularly check the classifieds, had taken out ads in classifieds, tried to make friends with the guys on the force, even tossed out a couple “50% off detectiving work” coupons.

Perhaps it is time to look into getting a police scanner.

Check under the furniture first - if you were checking it before, it's the most likely place it would end up that isn't already in plain sight, and they're also the quickest spots to check. If it didn't slip under anything, check where you would have filed it away, obviously. If it's not there, check the rest of the filing cabinet methodically to make sure you didn't just slot it into the wrong category.

You are missing several FILES.

Why are you missing several FILES?
You’d never take them out of this room, and you just checked the other spots it could be


Your Morale has dropped to MEDIOCRE
No. 977190 ID: b1b4f3

Did you just remove some drawers from the brown file cabinets because it looks like some disappeared.
Anyway, what if you misfiled them? Check all the drawers.

Another possibility is that someone snuck in and stole them, how good is your security? Can you check if someone broke into your door? Any signs of forced entry? Or the window?
No. 977216 ID: ce39da

Well, shucks, even if we don't have a job, it sure does look like we have a mystery on our hands! What's important is to pursue the three pillars of a crime:

In other words, the "how." Examine the cabinets and your office door for signs of forced entry (plus other clues); someone had to go through both to get to your files. (That's after you remember if they were locked in the first place, of course.) What are the possible entrances/exits to this building? (That includes doors AND windows.)

Quick question; do you live here? It's hard to tell since we see no bed, but there is a dresser. Knowing whether you're always here could affect a lot. Especially:

The art of narrowing down the "when" and "where" to separate the alibi haves from the have-nots. When was the last time you checked these files? (To be sure, also try to remember if you put them back correctly - don't want to go on a witch-hunt only to find out at the end that you moved them yourself and just forgot.) Try to construct a timeline for all the time you spent not in the office between then and now. The culprit had to strike while the office was empty, after all. Did you only come and go with the opening and closing of the building itself during that timeline? If so, that would tighten up the means the culprit would have had to implement (i.e., they couldn't have walked into the building itself like it was no big deal). Finally:

The crucial question of "why." Try to remember what the missing files were about; what connects them? Was the file you were looking for among them? They were all that the culprit took, and it doesn't look like they just grabbed a whole shelf, so they selected the files with purpose. The culprit might either be someone very invested in the desired files' contents, or someone they hired. The motive was likely to obscure an investigation (unless they were pressed for time (or a little stupid)). If they just wanted to know what was in the files, they could have taken photos of the contents.

Of course, keep an eye out for the knot that ties these three pillars together:

Clues, evidence, proof that directly implicates the "who" in a whodunnit; you'll need more than circumstantial culpability to confront someone. Of course, that's being a bit optimistic, considering we don't even have any specific suspects in mind at this stage.

Oh, one more thing: Call the police.
Your office has been burglarized, for Pete's sake, and it's not like anyone is paying you to do this without help. Those guys will almost certainly have better forensic capabilities than you.

>When was the last time you checked these files?
>RECALL. What happened in the last few days?
Two days ago, You got the other seat for your office shortly after coming back from your last case. That was the last time you checked the files. Both seats are identical as it was nice enough for Henry to make you them at such a discount in the first place. (“The universe could use more seats”)
Nothing else of note really happened. You spent the rest of those days currying favor with some jupettes (Private Detectives aren’t exactly treated kindly, cuteyes aren’t exactly fighters, but jupettes are exactly cheap.)

(Or. well. It costs time, not money. Time awake, as sleeping cuteyes are a dime a dozen.)
You also talked to the people at Cucumber Investigations (UGH WHY THAT NAME), and applied to Goldlight Detective Services. Neither were all that productive.

Your bed is right there, disguised as a filing cabinet, next to the ladder/set of shelves combo disguised as a filing cabinet that’s between the bed and the actual filing cabinet. You arranged for your whole apartment to be able to double as your agency, despite how, inadvisable that is.

Last time you looked in there was when you closed on the last case three days ago. Bail jumper. (Chartreuse, aftik. Didn’t fully understand what bail was, decided to stay with family at Taiaptor, forgot about the trial completely.) You left the apartment a little over an hour later, as Deuce took you to meet with some other jupettes who could watch your back while he’s on the clock. (He’s currently working as an apprentice masseur, you think?) You were back home three hours later. The rest of the days were as usual:
You are at home from four to eight, trying to find work and make connections, both through the Internet. The, rest of the day, you’re out of the apartment.
You, were kind of expecting the landlady to have caught anyone trying to break in. You know there are security cameras throughout all public areas...

The biggest question. You can’t remember the cases that well, but you are sure you’d remember any obvious connection. The file you were looking for was among them, but that doesn’t help figure out why.
The only motive you can think of is to ruin your business, thus making you give up your dream of being a detective and thus go to nursing school like a normal cuteye.

You seem like a tea type of guy.

Also, how do you know the landlady didn't notice anything? Maybe she did see someone, but they just didn't register to her as something worth mentioning?

> Jupettes
So... I did some light reading on them. If one of your leading theories is that one of them is responsible, maybe they wanted to help with some of your (perceived) workload?

> Insecurities
Yeah, if the culprit was trying to sabotage you, they'd take more than just a small handful of files; obviously not something the police would actually take seriously, but they'd try something more significant. Why do you struggle, though? You have your quirks, but nothing we've seen suggests outright incompetence, aside from the fact you're being rejected at every turn. Have you identified potential reasons for this?

Perhaps there's something connecting the cases that isn't in the files themselves? Maybe they were all prosecuted, defended, or tried by the same guy? What if there's a different crime they all had tangential connections to? Maybe the culprit was hired by several different people?

At this point, however, there isn't enough clues to even speculate, so let's go hunting for more. Talk to your neighbors. Talk to your landlady. And if nothing comes of them, talk to the Jupettes. Even if they aren't related, they'll almost certainly try to make themselves helpful.

> Confrontations
I don't think you're wrong for wanting protection, but I don't think it's a private eye's job to confront people. You're only supposed to ascertain the truth of a case; it's the job of the police (or, in civil cases, the client and maybe some lawyers) to resolve it.

With that in mind, one of our goals can be to find proof that there was an actual theft; this will likely require us to find the files themselves, of course, and we might consider the case functionally closed, but we ought to leave prosecution to other people.

Demanding that you look at her collection before she's willing to talk is unprofessional but not an absolute deal-breaker. Let's head in.

uuuh, well, here's half of my gun collection!
I, was kinda sortaaaa, monopolizing this whole woom,
Dawwy wanted a space for hew hobby tooo,
And I just, fowgot, all that...

This is probably a good time to ask what questions do you plan to ask for the interview.
You can also ask more personal questions, like "HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?", "WHAT THE HELL", "THESE BETTER BE DEACTIVATED."

Okay, I can understand why he'd(?) want to show off his collection; it is impressive, in a way. It's also understandable that they're anxious due to this being a rather "uncute" hobby. I mean, you're in the business of solving potentially unsavory crimes!

I guess "Those aren't live, are they?" would best convey your fear without being too rude.

After that, fire your banked question: "Why do you think Dir. Shirleylee stole the files?"

Where's the other half of the collection? Is it at least securely locked away?

Uh, if you could start going over your weapons safety precautions and rules and procedures, that would help. Like a lot. I'm trying not to stress out here!

There is nothing to be gained by being dramatic and revealing your worries about their collection. Instead just ask them if there is any general theme or is it just guns in general.

You gotta complement then on this collection, they got Deckard's gun, the shell that shoot shotguns that shoot more shotgun shells, it is genuinely impressive they have such a wide range.

> "Haha, I feel sorry for the poor fool that'd try and rob you."
...yeah, you can’t really say something like this, it's too GREAT. You'd just end up giggling with JOY.
> I guess "Those aren't live, are they?" would best convey your fear without being too rude.
"Those aren't live, are they?"
"Deactivated. Pewmanently inopewable. Inewt. Fiwing Pins, Lasew Heads, Magnetic Accelewators: Wemoved. Chambews, Magazines, Bawwels, Lens Holdews, Ciwcuit Twaces, Hammews: Welded."
"Hm, the law only needs the chamber welded for it not to be considered a gun, right?"
"Or the bawwel, but the law was made fow people that want a gun on the wall, but none of the wesponsibility."
"...And you?"
"I guess I’m avoiding wesponsibility too, in a way.
It’d be bettew if I just cut them to thiwds,
but, then, I’d have nothing but wowds,"
"I mean, like this shell shotgun-gun-thing. I had to navigate thwough this whole thing in Ginbilgaw involving a suicide that appawently was a muwdew, thewe was deaf babysittew, a football, ewm, a bwewew, and his son that was an investigatow, and someone was pwetending to be him,"
"I wasn’t keeping twack of it all, I was just thewe to get the shell, and despite evewything, I did, and didn’t go to jail for anything.
I, wanted something to show for it, whichevew whatevew,
just, something to show for my hawd endeavow."
"So, You destroy guns?"
"Well, only the ones that haven’t been in pwoduction in the past couple decades. Pweferably wawe ow classic ones, but any will do."
"Won’t they just start mak-"
"Yes. But at least I’m doing something."
> "Rad, can I have one?"
"...So that’s a no to lending me one?” You joke."
She sighs, "Silly. That’s definitely asking too much, even without this whole game."
"But, hey at least you asked this time." following it with honest chuckles.

"Speaking of which, I’m ready for that interview."

"Jemmy (She/Hew)"
"Is that your full name?"
"Do I need to give my govewnment-wecognized name?"
"No, I guess not for this."

> Q: "Why do you think Dir. Shirleylee stole the files?"
You ask this
"Good question.
Why did he show up in youw office months ago?"
"He didn’t. I thought he did, but that must’ve been an impostor."
"Can you say that again, but show me youw hands?"

You put up your hands, fingers as far apart as possible to ensure they don’t, somehow, get crossed.
"I don’t believe Director Shirleylee showed up in my apartment."
"May I be let in on why
You thought that was a lie?"
"(Not unless you awe going to
tell me what you awe actually up to.)"
"I’m handling this missing files mess
That’s all, no more, or less"
"Fine, not gonna fight.
I was just joking, alwight?"

Any additional questions?
(Suggestion are not needed this time, but are still appreciated.)

> Q: "Did you see anyone entering or leaving my apartment?"

Wow, cuteyes really don't screw around despite their cuddly exteriors.

Okay, so you're doing something on the down-low related to Director Shirleylee or general cuteye espionage. You're uncomfortable thinking about the details, but can you at least admit to yourself whether you're working with or against them? Is that why you're sure that visitor was an impostor? Because they were snooping for something that the Director should have already known about? If so, Jemmy might be onto something with pointing to that visitor as a suspect (albeit for the wrong reason), especially since that particular missing file is the closest thing to a MOTIVE we've come upon so far, and teleportation is one heck of a capable MEANS.

Do proceed with the obvious question of "did you notice anything," but include the window of OPPORTUNITY outlined at >>1001426 and >>1001428; wait, was it two days ago or three? Let's make it three in our question, just in case.
No. 1006894 ID: 15a025

Yeah all I can think of for now is clarifying how many days ago it was.
