Do We Have This One??

A character borrows some money, but for whatever reason is unable to pay it back. Cue pursuit by some rather aggressive loan sharks, who are determined to get their money back by any means necessary.

  • The working title for this one comes from Pikmin 2, in which the President of Hocotate Freight has to go on the run from debt collectors after discovering that the company's loan came not from Happy Hocotate Savings & Loan, but from the building next door, the All-Devouring Black Hole Loan Sharks.
  • In KateModern, Gavin and Tariq borrow money from a rather shady businessman named Terrence. When it becomes apparent that they have no means of paying him back, he becomes violent.
  • Nikki Sanders of Heroes borrows money from a Las Vegas mob boss, Mr. Linderman, who sends thugs after her to retrieve it.
