Red Queen as badass biker chicks.
I’m excited for Red Queen week
Where’s that Red Queen AU where cop!Ruby meets prostitute!Regina?
This would be so great for the starting scenes. Off-duty Ruby rides a motorcycle and finds Regina dumped in the gutter by some john, bedraggled, cold and wet, so Ruby gives her leather jacket to keep the woman warm, and tries to convince her to go to the station and file a battery report. But Regina won’t go. Regina runs off still wearing Ruby’s jacket.
On-duty Ruby later sees a group of women pulled in for prostitution and spots her jacket, Regina still wearing it, in the group. When the processing officer tries to take the jacket, “No personal effects allowed in lock-up”, Regina tries to explain it isn’t hers, but she can’t lose it. Please don’t take it; she has to give it back. Ruby comes over and in the guise of soothing the prisoner, tells Regina she’ll take care of it personally. “Just ask for Officer Lucas when you get out.”
What do you think?
And when Regina gets out, Ruby gives her back the jacket and tells her to keep it. ‘It looks better on you, anyway.’ And Regina smiles and thanks her, putting the jacket on before heading back out into the night. She slips her hands into the pockets because it’s cold and her fingers touch a card. She brings it out and finds a phone number scrawled on it along with the message 'I don't want to find you in the gutter again. Call me if you need anything.' Regina has the number memorised before she’s at the end of the street.
