A Basic ShadowrunOK, a Manager of some sort needs something done, and finds out he can't do it "In House" for whatever reason. Doesn't even need to be illegal. Let's say... A Middle Manager of Marketing needs to know what the opposing Corporation is going to promote next. He sends a request, with budget (Usually stolen from something not watched carefully, like a Coffee Fund), to the "Deniable Assets Department" (Or whatever name the Corporation gives itself.).A Basic Shadowrun7 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
The Manager there looks at it, guages it's importance to the Corporation, sees that this could be useful, and sends it to one of his agents. Let's call the agent "Bob Johnson".

A noise from the kitchen told Mikey he wasn't the first one to get up this morning. He had slept very little the night before, even after a three hour run, and he wasn't in the mood to face his brothers. Giving up on trying to sleep and rising so early was supposed to guarantee that he had the kitchen to himself.
Mikey stopped and debated on going back upstairs. He could always just wait until someone called him down to practice and eat his breakfast afterwards, knowing that no one would bother him then.
Setting his shoulders, Mikey decided against that idea. He was not going to go through the rest of his life feeling out of place and uncomfortable in his own home. Striving to keep his expression completely neutral, Mikey strode into the kitchen.
He almost sighed with relief when he saw Leo. Mikey amended his earlier thought; he wasn't in the mood to face Raph or Don, but so far Leo hadn't treated him any differently than normal. Normal w

"Good morning Mikey," Leo said to his sleepy looking younger brother.
Michelangelo's mouth was wide open with a yawn that he made no attempt to hide. He'd stayed out a little later than usual the night before and knew he was going to pay for it during morning practice.
Still, it was better than getting home too early and having to listen to them. It wouldn't surprise him in the least if his brothers thought he didn't know what they were doing with each other. Sometimes those three could be so dense.
"'Morning Leo," Mikey mumbled back.
He poured himself a glass of orange juice and eyed the coffee maker as he drank it. Not a big fan of coffee or tea, he decided that the jolt of caffeine would more than make up for the taste.
As he set about making a fresh pot he could feel Leo's eyes on him. He kept waiting for Leo to call him out on his late night. One of these mornings Mikey was going to snap and tell Leo that if he, Raph and Don

Michelangelo was bouncing around Donatello's lab. Literally bouncing.
Don had already saved a stack of circuit boards after Mikey had careened into the table they were on. Yanking Mikey away from a set of glass beakers at the last minute kept Don from losing a valuable experiment.
The genius brother was trying to concentrate on rewiring an old lamp he'd found, but Mikey was equally as determined to have Don's full and undivided attention.
"Come on, Donny," Mikey said in his best wheedling tone. "How long can it possibly take? I've got like five boxes of track now, it'll be awesome. I even cleaned a big space in the garage to set it up in so it won't be in anybody's way. Please!"

Casey Jones was big, bold, brash and bitter. He was also vengeful, frustrated and angry.
For Raphael, it was like looking in a mirror and seeing a human version of himself.
The friendship the two forged proved to be advantageous to the both of them. Raph was able to help Casey find the discipline and control that he lacked; giving him the ability to verbalize feelings that drove him towards recklessness.
Casey helped Raph understand some things about himself and his own, at times, ungovernable temper. Watching Casey the first night they had met made Raph understand how anger to the point of rage could make a guy go too far.
His interactions with Casey also gave Master Splinter's words a much greater meaning. Balance in all things included finding a center point in the swirling waters of Raph's mixed up emotions and clinging to that center as though it was a life raft.
Meeting the volatile, uncouth, rough, and rugged Casey Jones was probably the single best thing tha

You and your boyfriend Tim were in your kitchen, about to make waffles for breakfast. Before you had met him, you had always just bought the frozen kind, but his sister had a delicious recipe for them, so you always made them from scratch now.
You got out the ingredients from the fridge and cabinets, as well as a big plastic bowl and a whisk. Then you got out a frying pan while Tim proceeded to pour the flour into the bowl. The bag of flour hadn't been opened yet, so he struggled with it. He tore it so hard that when it was finally open, flour went everywhere. It covered his face and shirt, and you were standing nearby, so it managed to get on the back of your head as well. You turned around and looked at him.
Tim just stood there for a minute, his mouth opened in shock and his eyes wide. You giggled as you saw his expression. “Tim? Are you okay?”
He frowned. “No, I'm not! I just wasted all the flour! And it made a huge mess!
