Daisy “Trigger” Lee (WIP: Trigger)

So…. That post earlier?  Remember how I never made a character clear cut female asexual.  Mwahahahaha?  Right, right?

Let’s start this story the fun way.  😀 [About Cat Hartliebe]

Daisy Trigger Lee    ex military sharp shooter.  Has been shooting since she was fourteen when her father decided a new hobby would help her break out of her shell.  The hobby worked, but not in her father’s desired way.  Was looking at the Olympics but blew off the trials because of the sexualized industry.  Joined the Army(?) at eighteen and stayed her required … years.  Moved back home after only to find out her parents cannot think of anything better for her to do than get married and have kids.  She left them and barely sends a letter every holiday to prove she’s alive.  When the police academy shoved her into the small town, she wasn’t all that happy.  But with years of moving through the ranks easily and a lot of persuading, the town has shown a lot of respect.  She isn’t the eye candy of the police force no matter how kick ass she actually is.  She earned her rank and no one messes with her.  And because of her Trigger attitude when it comes to the patriarchy, sexual harassment cases went up for a while, then dropped to nearly zero.  No one messes with the females ‘just because’ while Trigger has control in the court room.

Rick Stricker.  An author who writes mysteries involving very sexy females in very little clothing who fight while humping every guy from here to tim buck two.  Currently eyeing one very sexy detective who has constantly blown him off.  He found this little town in no where land to start a new series.  The pretty detective will make a perfect sexy cop to star in his newest erotica: Trigger.

Daisy has a small one bedroom house, basically a tiny house, but with an impressive basement.  In her basement she has her guns under lock and key.  Every single gun is one she knows how to use well.  There is also space for her to break down kills from her hunts.

Currently, Daisy has yet to kill anyone since she joined the town.  She knows there is a high chance that will change, but nothing really happens here.  Most of her work is covering misdemeanors.  When the first murder showed it, people blamed it on a hunting accident.  Hunters aren’t known for their well placed shots.  The second seemed a little spooky, but still left in the accident category.  The third, though, was found out side a motel.  That far into town is not likely a hunting accident.  All three of them seem too alike and too spooky to be separated.  Daisy has to decide if the first suggestion is the truth or is there more to it in this small town.

For the female detective the murders seem far easier than the guy hitting on her at the scene of the crime.  He found the body.  Daisy doesn’t trust the man who said he’s an author.  There is no reason to come to this town unless you have family here or like to hunt.  Why would an author visit?  Could he be the murderer?  Daisy better find out the clues before pinning anyone with this blame.  Murder gets sent to county or state.  Daisy cannot send someone who didn’t do it.  She has to be wary.

So far so good, but I need seriously plotting before seriously writing it.  This is good start.

Even if Asexual post left me enough to write, I went a little bit further. You notice some of this is just character building. History. I’m not going to have a zeroth draft. I’ll still need to rewrite, but it won’t be in need of a full reworking.

One thought on “Daisy “Trigger” Lee (WIP: Trigger)”

  1. Motorcycle sounds cliche. I’m going with big rugged truck or jeep. I’m leaning toward a truck with no backseat and a gun rack. She doesn’t need a back seat. She doesn’t have a lot of friends, but she has a lot of respect. She has hunting buddies. If she goes to the bar, there will be someone who’ll buy her a drink as a thanks. One of the biggest dares kept a secret from the detective is to touch the Trigger without getting shot. She will glare and glower at anyone who touches her, male or female. She has trust issues and lets no one close.
    Her faults lie in her lack of a family in any sense of the word. She has a habit of cleaning guns when she’s annoyed by something. And her favorite saying may very well be, “I’ll shove your balls so far up your ass, you’ll become a girl.”
    Sounds like someone I wouldn’t want to meet, but follow just to see her impact. Which is perfect for a main character of a series.
    I think the author will fail, but never truly give up. He’ll be the reaccuring guy who tries to get Daisy into relationships with anyone. He’ll be the annoying side kick like character who never gives up while he writes a very sexy verison of Daisy that she’ll get close to committing murder when she finds out. cause you know by then she would’ve accepted Rick as a friend and she’ll feel back stabbed.
