There are now three chapters up on Patrice: the Eager SHIELD Agent!
The Enemy Within
that’s cool. totally up for it
They do when it’s not being stupid
Sam is really proud of himself when he gets Maria a Lego Iron Man figure and builds it for her and says it’s for her office. Both she and Nat are confused until Sharon (who had gotten one for a boy at the children’s wing) points out that a button on the back makes the figure explode and and small regular sized Tony Lego figure pop out. Maria and Nat love it and fight over it and Pepper winds up having to play Mom and having them take turns playing with it. But it stays on Pepper’s desk sometimes too since of all of them she has to deal with Tony the most. They can’t thank Sam enough. Especially when he tells them a Hawkeye version comes out next month.
in contrast, the sheer nothingness in one of Natasha’s apartments would surprise her if she wasn’t so tired. There is a bare mattress in the middle of the floor and a cot of to the side with an IV standing ready with a bag of saline standing ready and a fully stocked field medical kit. On the other side of the room is a hot plate and possibly the smallest mini fridge ever. Maria really needs to talk to Sharon about supplying Nat with medical supplies rather than dragging her to the hospital. But for now she’s content to be Natasha’s big spoon and ignore the blood, dirt, and grime still covering them. She thinks all she saw was a Costco thing of Wet Wipes anyway so that shower can wait.
I will do my best to carry you when you need a lift
Comfort you when you’re sad
We all feel down now and then
But I’m here if you need me
