A nice cup of tea
Two fingers of scotch, neat
You get paid to do it.
They seem to fall into your lap!
You're morally obligated to apprehend wrongdoers and help justice prevail.
You can't help yourself - you're intelligent, capable, and you like to win!
It's an amusing way to pass the time.
A little black dress - you never know!
A forensic crime-scene investigation kit
A small handgun
A pair of gloves and a tape recorder.
It's really up to your driver.
A notepad and your library card.
Knitting needles and some yarn.
It really doesn't matter, you don't drink anymore...
It really doesn't matter, as long as there's something delicious in it...
What glass? You like an occasional drink, but you're really too busy fighting for justice to consider this question right now.
Absolutely delectable. Why eat if it's not delicious?
Quick and nourishing. You've got work to do!
Drawn out. It's the perfect time to reflect on evidence or meet with colleagues to discuss the criminal underground.
Available when you're DONE solving the mystery!
The big city
Throw up. Violence really isn't your thing.
Closely examine the body for clues, no matter how gruesome it is. You want to be the first on the scene - before someone else messes it up.
Feel nauseous. You'll leave the crime scene investigating to the experts - but use the photographs they take and details they find as much as possible.
Find out who's in charge - you always follow the proper procedure for crime scenes, lest the evidence be inadmissible in court.
The turn of the century (late 1800s to early 1900s).
1930s to 1950s
1960s to 1980s
1990s to right now!
Lots of action! The story should begin with a leap and never slow down.
A slower beginning, but by the end, it's moving so fast you can't put it down.
Never slow, but full of lots of details - you don't care if the book takes longer to read, you want to know every little thing!
A quick and easy pace that draws you in, but doesn't make your heart race.
Yes, you always carry your government issued firearm.
Yes, you know you can protect yourself in any situation.
Weapons are for common criminals - you rely on your intellect for survival.
If you had one, you'd have no idea how to use it.
Do knitting needles count as a weapon?
Well, you might not have a permit exactly, but you might have a small gun here somewhere.
