Chuck had the afternoon to himself. He wasn't working at the Buy More and, for the moment at least, there was no mission underway.

He found himself catching up on 'Call of Duty' since it felt like it had been ages since he played last. He almost felt guilty Morgan was still at work since he knew his buddy would so want to play if he was off too.

After shooting several enemies, Chuck heard a knock at the front door. He paused the game and got up to answer it.

Chuck knew he did not have a variety of genres in his movie collection. Many of them were movies featuring aliens, fantastical creatures, or James Bond. Despite this fact, Sarah had agreed to watch one of the movies he liked.

He was kind of surprised that Sarah agreed to watch the first of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring. And not just the theatrical version, but the extended edition!

"Hope you like it," he said to Sarah as he put the movie in the DVD player. He then sat down next to her on the couch and pressed 'Play' on the remote control.
nerdherdchuck: (Yay!)

It was a simple party. Snacks, a couple bottles of champagne and sparkling cider were neatly placed on a fold out table decorated with noise makers and party hats.

Guests were gathered in the courtyard just outside of Chuck and Ellie's apartment, chatting with one another.

The Morgan door was temporarily blocked by a small TV broadcasting 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve' in anticipation of the countdown to 2009.

Chuck donned his ren faire ruffled shirt and vest once again. Although he would eventually break into the Sandworm costume, he thought to have something costume-ish on in the meantime.

The courtyard outside Chuck and Ellie's apartment was decorated with Halloween lights and spooky decorations. Music played as costumed guests mingled with one another while a couple were helping themselves to the snacks and punch set up on a table at the edge of the courtyard.

Chuck could not believe this was happening. Although he had been in contact with Pepper for a couple of weeks about starting his new job, there was something that still seemed surreal about it.

Not too long ago, he felt he was destined to spend the rest of his life behind the Nerd Herd desk. And now, here he was, about to board a private jet to New York.

He physically pinched himself to prove this wasn't all a dream. Right after he did so, he spotted Pepper waiting for him.

The introduction of this RP was written during an AIM conversation between the muns for [ profile] powered_otaku and [ profile] nerdherdchuck. It's been turned into prose a bit (though there are some missing emotional cues and such) to lead into the RP below.

nerdherdchuck: (Yay!)

The San Diego convention center was filled with all sorts of exhibits, panels and vendors selling all sorts of collectibles. There seemed to be so much to do and tons of events worth seeing.

"I'm finally here," Chuck commented out loud to no one in particular.

The next day, Chuck found himself fixing yet another broken cell phone.

", it's good as new," he finished after briefly explaining to the owner what the issue was and what he needed to do to repair it. He handed back the phone to happy teenager who said, "You totally rock!" before happily dashing off.

Chuck smiled and then turned back to the computer at the Nerd Herd desk. He then heard the bell chime for service and looked up to see Casey glaring at him.

"What?" Chuck asked, confused. He hadn't bothered Casey all day.

Casey said nothing but motioned towards the Home Theater Room. Chuck then nodded and followed his handler.

A few minutes later, Casey, Chuck and Sarah were greeted on flat screen TV by General Beckman and Director Graham.

"Your report does trouble us a bit," General Beckman began. "This could possibly be an attempt by the Front Range Crime Syndicate to reestablish itself. Your suspicions are warranted, Chuck."

Director Graham then explained, "A couple days ago, the CIA had picked up some chatter from a known member of the group, Miranda Kosak. Apparently, Miranda has been overheard wanting to 'pawn the child' off to someone named Nicholas. It's quite possible this child is in fact the missing Richards' girl."

"But what about the girl's family?" Chuck asked. "Has-"

"The missing girl's father, Reed, is a nuisance if you ask me," the General replied with a noticeable growl. "But I suppose what you were about to ask was if any information has been made available to her family."

Chuck nodded.

The General glared at Chuck. "The answer is 'no.' And you are hereby ordered not to share anything with them either. Do I make myself clear?"

Sarah, Chuck and Casey nodded.

"Good. We're investigating the matter further and quite possibly soon we may ask you to investigate any leads we can find on Miranda or the Syndicate," said the General before ending the transmission to the Home Theater Room.

Chuck had filed his last Nerd Herd invoice for the day when an idea came to him. He opened the folder holding all of the blank invoices and took out one of them. Then, he scribbled a little note in the comments section which read:

"It's quite possible some organization known as the Front Range Crime Syndicate is involved in your daughter's kidnapping. Apparently one of the members (Miranda) was overheard talking about 'pawning off a kid.' I dunno if that helps at all but I'm not even supposed to tell you that much. I do hope you find your daughter though and felt passing along this much was the right thing to do.


He mailed the invoice in one of the preprinted Buy More envelopes. In the top left corner of the envelope, the address of the store Chuck worked at was displayed. He wrote the address from the Baxter Building he found in the online article and then tossed the envelope in the bin of outgoing mail.

It was a relatively slow day at the Buy More. With the past week being a wash out and this being the first sunny day in awhile, people were probably outside enjoying the good weather.

Morgan approached the Nerd Herd desk and noticed his friend Chuck was surfing the internet on his computer. "Is it just me or is there no one shopping today?" he asked his friend.

"No, it's not just you, buddy," Chuck replied, looking up from the computer screen. "I've only fixed one cell phone in the three hours I've been working today," "We're basically caught up on everything that was brought in too."

"Wanna do another round of 'Make a Movie End a Lot Quicker?'" Morgan suggested.

Chuck grinned. "That sounds promising. Is Big Mike-"

"He's at lunch."

"All right then. I'll be over in a minute," Chuck replied with a grin. He turned to look at his screen again and his browser was displaying CNN's website. He glanced over the major news stories on the screen and one caught his eye, one of a missing girl. "The poor kid." As he read more of the story, he felt himself slip into a trance-like state and before his eyes flashed a series of images relating to a group known as the Front Range Crime Syndicate. A moment later, he snapped out of his trance, gasping slightly.

I better find Casey, he then thought to himself. He didn't want to wander the store aimlessly to find him so he picked up his cell phone and dialed Casey's number.

"What?" Casey growled when he picked up.

" better come over here. I kinda," Chuck stopped himself and glanced around to make sure no one was nearby. When he saw no one near him, he continued, "Need to talk to you about something."

"Fine." Then the connection ended.

Casey arrived at the desk in less than a minute. "You rang?"

Chuck pointed at his computer screen at the story he flashed on.

"Yeah, missing kid. Sad story. What about it?"

Chuck lowered his voice. "What do you know about the Front Range Crime Syndicate?"

Casey raised an eyebrow. "Violent organization. Known for planning attacks to further their goals. Controlled a crime ring in Colorado for awhile. Most of 'em are in jail though. Why do you ask?"

"I think they're behind this kidnapping."

"What? Bartowski, are you-"

"Well, why else would the-" Chuck stopped himself and looked around, making sure no one was nearby. The coast was clear once more. He then whispered, "Why else would the Intersect display their files when I read this story?"

Casey sighed. "Fine. I'll run this up the flag pole and see if we're to get involved. For now, go find your idiot friend. He was bugging me asking me where you were."

Chuck nodded. "Okie dokie." Then he walked to the video camera department where Morgan was waiting.
nerdherdchuck: (Hiro & Chuck)
Continued from here.

It was the first thing that came to Chuck's mind when Hiro had talked about taking a short trip.

"There's a really neat Star Trek ride in Las Vegas," Chuck suggested to Hiro. And a moment later, Hiro had brought them both to the middle of the famous strip.

Chuck glanced about wide-eyed until an excited Hiro asked where the ride was.

"Oh!" Chuck replied, snapping back to reality. "It's at the Hilton." Then, he pointed in the general direction of the hotel and added, "Down there."
nerdherdchuck: (Wait. a sec...)
Machi had shown Chuck many beautiful and interesting places within the Sohma Temple. Now Chuck was following Machi through the forest surrounding the temple.

They had just passed a tiger which made Chuck a bit nervous. But Machi didn't seem too worried and said to Chuck that it was probably more scared of him than he was of it.

He thought it would be best just to follow Machi and attempt to not make any sudden, panicky moves, just in case.
