This is Chief Kate Beckett, making a quick note as a courtesy. You may not recognize me when I come into the office this morning. I'm, uh. Male. Castle, I took the liberty of raiding your wardrobe.

Go ahead, get the laughter out now. [And Kate flips to video, linefacing and looking fairly unamused. And manly!]

police filter, voice;
It's been over a week. What does everyone have so far, because this needs to be cleaned up yesterday.


[ooc: Kate Beckett is manly! Responses from [livejournal.com profile] nicholasheat. As far as the police business, I figure we're moving along through the investigation stage, so along with what anyone comments here, we'd likely be to the point where they submit that they've no evidence supporting the accusations and might even possibly have alibis and other evidence refuting the accusations? Sorry I've been a little behind and chaotic with the open threads on this plot, I'm not really absolutely sure where we're supposed to be at this point, so correct me if I'm mistaken! :) Alsoooo bendytime to the morning if that's okay?]

What are you doing about Tsurugi?

We're still investigating, but we're doing what we can to make sure he's under surveillance while we work through the evidence we have.

I respect that, but I'm sure you know what he's capable of. If we attempt to detain him, it could prove a worse situation that simply allowing him to believe that we're routinely investigating.

If you'd like, I can arrange for somewhere for you to stay. A witness protection kind of thing?

I don't want to hide. I shouldn't have to hide. I'm not the one that killed someone and left them to wake up alone and dead in the Underground.

There's only so much I can do here, Mara, and I'm bending over backward. Do you know how undermanned we are? And still I have all of my available departments investigating, trying to put these pieces together.

These are the options I have for you, with the resources I can pool. I'm sorry if it's not enough but we're doing the best we can.

[Stressed from manliness and overworking, she gets-- hissy. Eep.]

Of course. Gods forbid you do anything to make things hard for your officers... oh, wait. He is one of your officers, isn't he?

Perhaps this isn't a discussion we should be having at the moment. I understand if you don't trust the police given the reputation we inherited from the past-- that I can't control. Even so, I apologize for that, I really do. But I'm not sure me arguing with you over my dedication is going to solve anything.

private; I can't be angry at that face...

Of course it won't. I doesn't matter, I'm just the woman without a heartbeat.

Why aren't he and Ray sitting in a locked room somewhere? They've been identified.

[A pause as she's taken aback by Beckett's gender switch for a moment. However, business first.]

Forensics has concluded our investigation of the original crime scenes; I e-mailed you a more detailed final report a moment ago. As I suspected, we were unable to discover any new evidence pertaining to the crimes. I also took the initiative to go over the physical evidence gathered during the initial investigations of the assaults. The conclusions drawn from them remained unchanged after my review - a separate report of this is included in the e-mail.

[Next is added tersely, because Brennan hates admitting she was unable to find anything new despite the numerous overtime hours she spent on every little detail.]

Forensically, there's nothing to definitively tie the suspects to these crimes.

[If she wasn't a man, Beckett would be more attuned to Brennan's frustration. Unfortunately at this point, she's just feeling too much of her own.]

Great, so I've got two victims breathing down my neck and possible killers still on the loose. And it doesn't seem we'll ever have definitive evidence of anything. Ever.

[And if Brennan, in turn, were more attuned to other people socially and emotionally, she'd probably realize Beckett didn't mean it as a personal insult to her capabilities but is venting her own frustrations. It doesn't help Brennan's indignation any that Beckett is telling her this in a voice that's distinctly male - she's dealt with one too many male officers that openly belittled her expertise.]

Oh? I would have expected someone with your experience to realize returning to crime scenes weeks after the actual crime took place to gather new evidence is statistically all but useless. The existing evidence simply did not match the suspects, and that's an irrefutable fact. But you are welcome to get a second opinion from somebody more accomplished in the field of forensic science than I am, provided you can find one here.

Character ref'rence's not enough I s'pose, ma--guv, yeah? Wish I knew when Ken'd been killed. Or that we 'ad forensic evidence of where 'e'd been shot. But if I knew when...I dunno. I see Ray nearly all the time cos of work an' goin' to the bar. An' I know that Ray never said nothing about knowin' that Ken was a po--um....a gay bloke. 'E don't act like one, guv. When 'e told us that that was why Ray killed 'im, it was news t'both of us.

Plus, I dunno if it counts for anythin' but Ray's not the sort t'shoot a bloke. If 'e 'ad a problem with Ken, he'd've sorted it out in a proper fight. Don't s'pose any of that counts as proper evidence, though.

We know all of this. It would help if we could get some information that was new or refuted the accusations, hmm? Or hell, why don't we just screw around for another week and let everyone run amok?

Maybe by then you'll be able to figure out what to call me.

[So, frustrated. And not handling the being male thing as well as she'd like everyone to believe.]

[Very quiet and tense.] M'sorry, guv. Thought some of it might do. S'not physical or anything, I s'pose. Jus' thought maybe if Ray 'ad no motive

[But he doesn't actually say that because he doesn't really want to challenge Kate's decision on his "evidence".]

I'll try an' come in tomorrow, to 'elp properly, look over th' case files. I'm just sort of stuck in me flat for the time bein'.

[She can't apologize, but Beckett definitely feels bad about snapping.] It's just that they're eye witnesses, and the rules of the City makes it so that people dying can get a look at their attacker.

But on top of that, why is this hard, Chris? Because we get two accusations out of nowhere, just magically remembered. Who's to say the deities aren't messing with us? We need hard evidence. Something that definitely says yes or no.

I need you to step up your game. You're Intel right now Chris. It's all you.

[Okay. A bit overwhelming but okay... Bloody hell, does that mean he's the head?]

Shouldn't be that hard, I know. Only it 'appened so long ago...s'hard to come by alibis. Must be somethin' in th'case files I missed. Wish I remembered whenever it was that Ken was murdered. If I knew Ray'd been drinkin' with me an' Dean...

Anyway, steppin' up me game, guv. I'll come over soon as it's dark.

Just less of a turn on, Beckett...wait? Do I still call you Kate? Are you going to want wine with dinner tonight? I should probably put off seducing you until then.
