Roland daggett, caught the BTAS reference nice one! And the financial district too, hehe. I guess ole roland's business didn't extend to just gotham. HAHA and angel grove! man this cab ride is like a stroll down memory lane. Anyways Matt, its been awhile since ive had time to review and read fics, but you took the effort to read mine so I should at least return the favor, besides, i've missed your serious, brooding and unique writing. From the flavor of the descriptions and atmosphere, I'm really getting the ole 'sin city + collateral' vibe, which is quite refreshing considering all the times we've seen Jump city is in bright sun shine. Also, funny thing, as soon as you said the woman was crying and was around 25 years old, I knew you just stamped a big "RAVEN" sign on her haha. I've always liked your take on mature Raven, especially from DB. And the real kicker, the dialogue between Raven and William is just extremely delicious to read. Many writers on the board are talented, but i think you're one of the best when it comes to dialogue. You really have a great grasp at how Raven communicates with other people, but the real genius of it was just how William plays her through the conversation, and even manages to get Raven into a conversation for once! Something i'd never expect but as you said, Cab drivers know how to read people. I've talked with a few myself, and they are quite interesting people! Still, i'm confused as to the title, The policeman? hehe, i guess we'll get more answers to that later on. Once again matt, you're the master of shock the unexpected. When i read this i expected something from the jump city police, but what we have here is something just as intriguing, a collateral-like story that provides us with what an ordinary citizen thinks of the titans, and a great look at what jump city really is like beneath all the sunshine and buildings hehe. I have a feeling this won't end here, if this is anything like collateral (great movie id recommend btw!) then there's more to come! I really have to read your bad seeds too matt. As i've always said, Villains intrigue me more than heroes. Its scary but i think its easier for all of us to identify with a villain than a hero. Heroes are who we aspire to be, villains are what happens when our flaws get the best of us. I mean, come on face it, if we all had super powers, would we be running off to police the world? hehe or get rich super quick? I've always though of writing a novel myself, but i could never commit to it, so props to you! it should be interesting to read.
