This is my very first adventure ever. Hopefully it goes pretty well. I'm actually really really nervous!! Hopefully it goes pretty well. I don't know if this has been done yet, I just suddenly came up with the idea while... watching the movie. :P Hope everyone enjoys this.
Like most people her age, she just exists. She's not an ORDINARY teenagers. Ordinary teenagers do things like PARTY and get laid and blow off their MATH TEST yet still manage to pass somehow and gossip about their best friends BEHIND THEIR BACKS and well known, exceedingly ordinary yet quite wealthy people widely known as CELEBRITIES and turn their lives into a rumor filled scandal that is all just a bunch of bullshit to try and make their lives just a tad bit more interesting. No, she just happened to be one of the less ordinary weirdos that nobody really gives a shit about. Currently, she is sitting in front of the television in the living room. She is watching a really weird black comedy movie called "KICK-ASS", and is thoroughly enjoying every bit of it. She is starting to get IDEAS into her head. OUTRAGEOUS IDEAS that would possibly ultimately get her into major TROUBLE. The idea may or may not be in every or any way related to the movie itself. To embark on a campaign to become a real-life superhero aka LAW BREAKING VIGILANTE by taking the law into her own hands, despite having no superpowers or skills whatsoever. But before we get to whether or not that is true..... our audience must be dying to know...What is her name?

Thinking about the name people use to make fun of you doesn't make you very happy....
She looks happy! That must be her name. Way to go!
Your name is RITA. Your mother named you after her favorite American Writer. She was really into MYSTERY NOVELS, and her tastes in LITERATURE passed down to you. The suspense. The thrill! Always keeping you guessing. You can't seem to get enough! Your favorite cartoon growing up was SCOOBY DOO. Today, you seem to get a real kick out of shoes like NCIS, PSYCHE, and MONK. You have a wild and vivid IMAGINATION. It knows no bounds. You have a high sense of FAIRNESS and JUSTICE, much like one of your favorite controversial superheroes, Batman. Like him, you have MUCH MONEY. And by YOU you mean your MOTHER who is always GONE ON BUSINESS. But you are a very MATURE AND RESPECTABLE LADY and you can handle being alone in your cozy little home.
You are very OPEN MINDED and can enjoy just about ANY GENRE of books and movies. You like VIDEO GAMES but you only play for RECREATION. You often dislike the grouchy competitive gamers who talk trash over their mics, but you're really good at ignoring them. You are OUTSPOKEN and FREE SPIRITED, and you are just a tad bit of a CONTROL FREAK. Your favorite color is PURPLE. You guess that maybe that is the reason why your mother had MOST OF THE HOUSE PAINTED IN THE COLOR. You also believe in INFINITE POSSIBILITIES, and like wearing RED SHOES.
However, none of this is really all that important to what is currently happening. As was previously mentioned, you are watching the movie KICK-ASS. You are so into the movie that you are taking it quite seriously, and you're not even that far into it yet! You don't suppose to finish the movie to figure out the moral of the story, which is to not take the law into your own stupid hands, but you don't bother doing that, oh no! That would ruin all of the fun, wouldn't it? You immediately turn of the television and hop off of your eccentric red couch. Telling your friend about your IDEA is the first thing that comes to mind.
Hehe, that's nothing but a dimple in the couch with a pig purple button.
>Explore your surroundings, if you please.
You are in a simple den. It is the place where you watch movies and read books on your cool red chaise/couch. The movies are contained in the drawers at the back, and the small shelf contains many of your mother's favorite mystery novels. The door is there, right next to the large television, which is mounted on the wall. The door leads to the upstairs hallway, where you can reach your room.
You CHECK OUT your MYSTERY MOVIE COLLECTION in the drawer. Your mother only buys movies that you and her can enjoy watching together, and since she only likes thrillers and mysterious brain twisting films, that's all you pretty much have! You would prefer a little more variety.... but you don't mind these movies. They are all pretty awesome! You spot a few of your more favorite of the many movies you have. They are Donnie Darpo, Fight Klub, A Viewtiful Mind, Artificially Intelligent, Stutter Island, Mementoe, the Prominence, and The Butterfly Defect.
You begin to REMINISCE about how each of these movies, the main character was pretty TWISTED in some way. You must be really into twisted fucks. Something about their VULNERABILITY captures your heart and makes it three times bigger! All of these unique movies are definitely some of the best in your opinion. Especially Artificially Intelligent. Who would have thought a MACHINE could make you feel more human? It's just the kind of thing that warms your heart.
Thinking that you had wasted enough time IMAGINING that you were and were living a double life subconsciously becoming everything you want to be but consciously completely unaware of it, driving yourself more and more to the edge as the days go by and more confusion begins to pile up into your feeble little mind.... you decide it's best to MOVE ON. You go into your DARK HALLWAY and hurry to your room. It has such an eerie feel to it, as if a monster was creeping up behind you and was getting ready to pounce on you if you didn't go any faster. You hate the eerie dark hallway. Mysterious is mysterious but your mother sure can be a bit... depressing. If burglars ever entered your home, they would cry themselves to death.
FINALLY, you make it to YOUR BEDROOM. There are several MOVIE POSTERS decorated along the wall. Your room is a tad bit messy, but it's usually much much MESSIER. You GUESS the MAID came by not too long ago. You don't like her TOUCHING your THINGS, you make a mental note to SCOLD her about it LATER (which you will most likely forget about doing).
You quickly rush to the computer to go and pester your BEST FRIEND about your idea. He happens to be online, which makes you really really happy! You start explaining your ideas to him so excitedly that you hardly make much sense to him.... at first!
-- amethystWhiz [AW] began pestering swankyOtaku [SO] at 16:13 --
amethystWhiz: OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!! GUESS WHAT?!?! I've discovered my calling in life! To be the vanquisher of the malominous! Abettor of the meek and downtrodden! An eidolon of egalitarianism!
SO: You probably mean "calumnious" instead of "malominous". I'm not sure if that's even a word.
AW: Sorry! I just got really excited! What I meant was... I want to be a super hero.
SO: ... Are you high? Or did you fall into a vat of radioactive waste when I wasn't paying attention?
AW: No no, not like that! I wanna be a vigilante! Like Batman or Daredevil!
SO: Or Zero from Code Geass...
SO: .... you really need to start watching anime.
AW: No! It's silly!
SO: No it's not. What's silly is your wild epiphany. Seriously, I think if it weren't for me, you'd be dead by now.
AW: Aww... and I thank you for that! But...
AW: Haven't you ever wanted to be a super hero?
AW: I always wondered why no-one did it before me! I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows... you think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume!! I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself, at some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.
SO: Of course. Who hasn't? Luckily, most people aren't dumb enough to go for it. And those who have had ended up dead or in jail. You do realize that's illegal? Also, that was awfully insightful of you. I never thought you had such a beautiful speech in you. Very inspirational.
AW: Hehe, thanks. And I will never get caught! I'm way to slyyyy. :P
SO: You're not even taking me seriously. What's the use of even trying to talk you out of it?
AW: They'll never find me out! I'll wear a mask and everything! And they'll call me... THE SCARLET SLEUTH! Ooooh, yeah! Come on, not even YOU can deny that's cool.
AW: Besides... what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
SO: And what kills you makes you DEAD.
AW: I'm a Peacock, Brandon! You've got to let me fly!
SO: Would you stop using stupid movie quotes?
AW: Never!! Come on, please? I'll even let you be my sidekick! You know what, screw that, we'll both be heroes!
SO: I'd love to be a hero...
SO: *stands triumphantly against an american flag backdrop*
SO: I had an epic sunrise backdrop but Lion King borrowed it and never gave it back..
AW: How your sarcasm wounds me so...
AW: I'll do it alone...
SO: No, please listen.
SO: I'll help you, okay?
SO: If only to keep you out of trouble...
AW: Awww, yeah! With my clever mind and your sweeet martial arts skills, nobody will be able to stop us! They'll never see us coming.
SO: They never do.
AW: Thank you! You're my bestest friend ever!
AW: I'm Scarlet Sleuth and this is by partner, Swanky "TT" Showbiz.
SO: The extra T is for extra Talent.
SO: We're going to need clever disguises.
AW: I am way ahead of you.
SO: You... don't tell me
SO: You're going to use one of your ridiculous cosplay outfits...
AW: No way! Are you crazy? I would never use just ONE outfit! Maybe a mix-up of a few... hehehe
AW: How about Carmen Sandiego and Elektra?
SO: I'll make us both some PROPER outfits.
AW: Is there anything you can't do??
SO: I am magical.
AW: How are you going to do that?
SO: Your questions are seemingly INFINITE...
SO: I guess I already have my "superhero weapon"
AW: What is it?
SO: Well... my Keyblade
AW: OH, no! I'm not making fun of you! I think that's terrific!
SO: The weapon makes absolutely no sense, really...
SO: It's blunt so it can't cut anything, yet it's still called a "Blade". And it's hardly considered a bludgeoning object...
AW: Oh well. A weapon's a weapon. No time to be picky!
SO: You're right. What about you?
AW: I have my handy dandy bat! I could use that.
SO: I suppose that's better than nothing....
AW: Oh, and how is your Keyblade any better than a bat??
SO: It's classy.
SO: I am only messing with you. I'm going to sketch up our outfits. You go and see if you can go find some useful stuff around your house.
You don't REALLY plan on calling yourself SCARLET SLEUTH. Not unless your OUTFIT were to match with the NAME! But you guess it wouldn't hurt to BRAINSTORM while you're thinking of a Superhero/Vigilante alias....
What kind of names do you come up with?

The voices in your head go off. HEROLASS! Wait, no, that's ridiculous. The Masked Vigilante? The Legislacerator?? Ooh, that last one seems pretty cool!! AGH! It's driving you NUTS! You'll have to discuss it with your FRIEND later! Now, to do something a little more productive perhaps??
What will you do now?

>Exposit on your skills. Sign up for martial arts lessons.
You do not need to sign up for Martial Arts lessons. You are the great Master Rita, a black belt Karate master! Your mother paid plenty a penny for you to know how to protect yourself since she was gone on business all of the time! LIES! Your mother didn't NEED to pay anything, not even a penny! Because your mother is in fact your TEACHER. She taught you everything you know. Nobody would ever guess that you were so great. They underestimate you! And perhaps... that is your greatest advantage.
Now quit fooling around, Rita! You are on a mission! A mission of greatness.
As was stated before, YOUR IMAGINATION KNOWS NO BOUNDS! In fact, you are so caught up in your own imagination of your KARATE SELF that you decide to do a KARATE FLYING KICK!! ONE OF YOUR DEADLIEST MOVES!! And you end up with a face full of Donnie Darko. You are now flat on the ground. You hit your head so hard you're seeing stars! You didn't even think that sort of thing was possible. Who would have thought? Still that was fun.
>Investigate your mystery box. Whats in there, anyways? That box is just so mysterious...
You have never seen this box in your entire life! Or at least that is what you would like to think. It would surely add a little excitement now wouldn't it? But no, you in fact have had this box for a year now.
In here you keep an array of mystical ARTIFACTS, each one a devastating weapon in the hands of a SKILLED ATHLETE or a CUNNING INVESTIGATOR.
You are both of these things.
Among the ARTIFACTS are: ONE (1) iPHONE [CURRENTLY CAPTCHALOGUED IN YOUR SYLLADEX], ONE (1) PAIR OF PRESCRIPTION SUNGLASSES [CURRENTLY CAPTCHALOGUED IN YOUR SYLLADEX], ONE (1) PAIR OF HANDCUFFS, ONE (1) BASEBALL BAT, ONE (1) INVESTIGATOR'S HAT, ONE (1) JUDGE'S HAMMER OF AUTHORITY, ONE (1) HAPPY MASK, ONE (1) YELLOW JACKET, ONE (1) COPY OF CRIMINAL MINDS: FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY & ENCYCLOPEDIA OF HISTORICAL CRIME SCENES, ONE (1) DIGITAL CAMERA, ONE (1) UTILITY BELT, ONE (1) MAGNIFYING GLASS, AND ONE (1) FORENSICS KIT.
Some of this stuff may come in handy at some point. What do you decide to take?
