Summary: It was Gin’s first and last Kid heist.

Muttering a wide variety of curses under his breath, Gin stalked through the halls of the Black Organization’s headquarters. He was livid, a state very few had ever seen him in. But he had good reason to be.

He stormed into his room and slammed the door forcefully enough to resonate through the entire building. There was a mirror on the opposite wall, and he marched up to it, glaring at his reflection as he took in the full extent of the damage. That glare was so potent, it was a wonder the mirror didn’t crack.

There had been a Kaitou Kid heist that night, and he had been recruited to go assist with the ambush. The usual agents on the case had experienced a rather high rate of failure, so he had been brought in as a senior agent to oversee the operation. But the plan had gone horrendously awry when a pilfered spotlight, no doubt swiped by the phantom thief himself, had been turned to focus directly on their hiding spot.

Damn thief. Kid was getting better.

In the ensuing chaos, a cloud of pink smoke engulfed them. Still, they had escaped intact, and Gin was now left to stare at the result of the thief’s magical touch. It couldn’t have been any more insulting if Kid had tattooed a big middle finger right in the middle of his forehead.

His trademark black trench coat and hat were now red. A vibrant crimson red. Even his shoes had changed colors.

He looked like Carmen Sandiego.

Only blonde.

Staring at his reflection, Gin decided that maybe he should just leave all future Kid heists to Snake.

PS. The ideas one gets when one is exhausted! Don’t ask me where I came up with this notion that Gin in red looks like Carmen Sandiego. I think I texted the idea to Jeva at two AM, and she told me to go to sleep xD Thanks for reading, all! Much love!

*snicker* Who can say he didn't have that coming?

I like the idea of Gin going to a Kid heist and being humiliated. It amuses me.

Thanks! \o/ I think it'd be funny to watch Kid and Gin go toe-to-toe ^___^

Icon love. So much icon love for you :D

It would be neat to see them go toe to toe but I get the distinct impression it would onesided with Gin pulling a gun on Kid.

Yes, it is a good icon, isn't it? Believe it or not, I got that one and this one from the official site!

Oh the crack! Priceless! XD Now I wanna see someone draw him in red, LOL. To see how he really would look. And Kid turning the spotlight on them is too great. I love the sarcasm about the middle finger tattoo, too. **snerk.**

*laugh* Thank you very much!

...now I'm wondering about it as well--I have a mental image, though ^___^

The first memory that sprang from this fic:

Gosh, I love AMV Hell 3 . . . and the way it messes with your grey matter.

You're right about how annoyed Gin might get with Kid. Conan hinders the pursuit of Evil; Kid can do that *and* embarrass the pants off you. Nice job!
