A wise move for a new face, I suppose. Though you lack in boldness in my opinion.

youre a bad person
It seems rather... sudden? A bet placed on the whim of an unexperienced gambler?
wwell isnt that the wwhole point a the entire gambling business leavvin your moneys fate to luck an all
Perhaps. However, many seem to have forgotten the entertainment value of the business and factor in chance and statistic. And from a statistic point of view two seems a rather unsafe bet.
i see a pretty heavily secured room babe i think we hit the motherload time to reel this baby in and deliver it back to its original owner
itll make nice headline dont you think second time and prince aquarius retrieve priceless artefact from the midnight crews home base weaseling that bitch away right beneath their noses like a pair of raccoons on speed man those are some big damn heroes
wwell it seems like my unsafe bettin paid off huh

or you could just turn towards the lady and grin showing off dem golden teeth you dont have and scream something about how you dont want to live anymore and how youll teach them all because you hid a bomb in the building and only you know where it is and then watch them crawl around in panic looking for your invisible wires
if youll excuse me madam im goin to the restroom for a bit
youre not honestly going to plant a bomb are you
i mean seriously i can appreciate some dedication to the job but its a lot easier to explain a cover to the cops than some legit criminal crap and you know terezi im sorry i mean phoenix justice would be all over getting you jailed just to cackle at you while youre behind bars right
davve im not goin to plant a fuckin bomb or play out any a your other dumb scenarios do you evven fuckin REALISE that shit could compromise my secret identity

With his cape fluttering behind him dramatically Prince Aquarius, one of the great heroes protecting our beloved city well appeared in the window above the grand Midnight Casino with much flourish.
Honestly, why can't superheroes ever just use the front door? Especially if the happenstance occurs where the door should be found right below their choice of entree? [I KNOW IT MUST BE TERRIBLy HURTFULL TO KEEP YOUR CEASELESSLY AMUSING COMMENTARY REGARDING THE LOCAL CONSTUME-CLAD PARADE OF MUSCLEBOUND, BRAIN DAMAGED DUMBFUCKS WHO HAPPENED TO FALL INTO A RADIOCATIVE VAT OF SUPERSHIT AND INTO WIBBLY WOBBLY SCIENCE MAGIC POWERS OR WHATEVER TO YOURSELF BECAUSE WHILE I KNOW AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE YOU ARE HILARIOUS, THIS IS A NEWSPAPER. IF YOU WANT YOUR IMAGINARY TALENTS AS A COMEDIAN TO BE RECOGNISED YOU MIGHT WANT TO LOOK INTO A DIFFERENT LINE OF WORK.]
After what must have undoubtedly been hours of immaculate planning and much deliberating on strategies and different possible outcomes, poured over maps, cheap noodles, historical drama shows and homosexual oriented pornography [WHAT THE HELL LALONDE? JUST, WHAT THE HELL?] it appeared that he has chosen to engage the Midnight Crew head on, in their own territory no less. Needless to say his sudden entrance caused quite a commontion amongs the unfortunate commonfolk caught up in the brewing conflict, and the poor reputation of the Midnight Casino's hosts soon fanned the blazing fires of panic before any of the dastardly villains even dared hope to cross weapons with our noble hero.
But lo, this confusion was not an unfortunate and unpredicted flaw in lauded strategist Price Aquarius' designs but rather a favorable outcome, as it was not truly the Prince who was intended to take the spotlights of the heist but instead much admired superhero Second Time. These two exceptional supers who have in the past contributed much to the general safety of our streets by rounding up criminals and preventing unfortunate events like kittens starving in exceptionally high trees seem to have, against all odds, settled on a partnership. Their superduo's theme seems to as of yet remain undecided on however.
I suggest idiocy. In other news, they are also fucking.
[SEE THAT LITTLE SPLOTCH ON THE PAVEMENT ALL THIRTY FLOORS DOWN LALONDE? THAT IS WHAT REMAINS OF MY DELUSION THAT YOU MIGHT, IN FACT, POSESS SOME SENSE OF PROFESSIONALISM. I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR BEEF WITH ST OR PA IS, BUT KEEP IT THE FUCK OUT OF YOUR JOB. ON ANOTHER NOTE, I ASKED YOU TO WRITE A NEWSPAPER ARTICLE, NOT AN OPENING SCENE FOR SOME FICTIONAL SUPERHERO SMUT WITTEN SPECFICALLY IN THE PURPLEST OF PROSE.]
(Contrary to what you might think, Karkat, I do not in fact have any 'beef' as you put it with either of them. I merely wished to inform our beloved readers of the truth.)
While a surprising scene unfolded in the crowded casino area through the machinations of Prince Aquarius, Second Time infiltrated the underbelly of the villainous hideout found below and swiftly took out the nameless grunts secret and undenyably evil organisations such as the Midnight Crew tend to collect in great amounts without ever attracting the public eye while said grunts were distracted by the commotion after breaking and entering through the apparently grossly unprotected and human sized air vents.
Valliantly he liberated the White Crown from the claws of evil before absconding through the deserted hallways, paying no heed to the cameras who surely spotted him or the bodies of foes knocked unconscious earlier as he made his way to the main hall, the center of commotion. One can only assume Prince Aquarius never intended for his partner to join in with the mad scene that had played out there as strategically a secret break and enter to lift a priceless artefact out of a thief's den while one's partner creates a distraction sufficiently extreme to draw the thief's attention away from the sweet loot becomes rather pointless if the partner in charge of the stealthy bits decides to just screw it and barge into the distraction head on rather than sneaking off.
What he found however, was not Prince Aquarius dominating the scene or fending off Midnight Crew assailants but a three way battle involving a lot of guns, knives and toppled over gambling tables to be used for cover against barrages of pool balls and bullets. The third party in attendance was the Felt's very own Snowman, presumably also present to steal the much desired White Crown, for purposes equally vague as the motives behind the initial theft of the artefact.
At this point, the civilians had mostly cleared out of the building or taken to hiding in storage rooms and toilet stalls so Second Time could, without further hesitation fling himself into the shitstorm and kick some ass, in the process making the entire thing impossible to record chronologically. I would attempt to, but alas I seem to be short on page space and to give such a magnificent tale anything but the utmost carefully crafted prose would be doing it discourtesy. [YOUR BLATANT SOLLICITATION FOR A GENEROUS HELPING OF MORE PAGE SPACE TO POUR OUT YOUR GROSS AND HARDLY FACTUAL HERO FANFICTION OUT ON HAS BEEN SHOT DOWN WITH THE FORCE OF TEN MILLION SHITTING ELEPHANTS.

So seeing as I have to cut this article short I will simply cut to the chase and inform you that Second Time and Prince Aquarius achived a glorious victory in the name of justice. They returned the White Crown to our much beloved monarchs, thus bringing an end to what can only be described as a troubled time for all of us. [TROUBLED TIMES LIKE TIME SPENT READING THIS RUBBISH.
