Agent Coulson & Agent Barton, Thor (2011).
Because this amuses me, here is Duty of Candor so far. I wanted to show you how much it’s grown in length since last time. You should be impressed.
I am posting this publicly because this is a thing of ABSOLUTE GLORY. Just. Oh man. I cannot even tell you how much delight I feel about this.
Duty of Candor is already the length of a single MPU chapter and I am maybe a third of the way done at most. I may need to split it into parts.
And I was worried that the MPU would never flow again.
You guys will enjoy the shit out of this story. At least, I really hope.
I simply cannot handle this cast.
We do work very, very hard to update on a regular basis. It is like clockwork. We are plotting our next chapter right now. And I am glad you find it so delightful! Hurting Thor was totally Sara’s idea. Which is not to say I didn’t merrily jump on board, but I mean, SHE STARTED IT.
Thank you so very much!
Oh, thank you very much! We do try to balance them, and it’s pretty important (at least from my perspective) that they all spend some time together and have their own moments—both of domestic bliss and of adversity. I know that Sara and I were just talking about how Phil and Clint haven’t gotten much screen time in a while and I think we’re going to be working on them soon. And I think we might need to screw with Tony and Pepper at some point in the future. Whatever the case, thank you so much for the kind message! And yeah, we will be seeing more of Carol and Rhodey, too.
Dammit, the ONLY advantage to springing forward should be that the cats aren’t hungry as early (because they think it is still 5 p.m. instead of 6), but I fed them early last night, so now they want food.
NO, I GET AN EXTRA HOUR OF PEACE, FUZZBUTTS, BE GONE.
5: If you were given the opportunity to spend 48 hours with absolutely anyone (living or dead), who would you spend it with and what would you do?
Oh, man, Sara. This is hard! Dammit, woman! The person who first came to my mind is actually Sandra Day O’Connor, because when I was in middle school and learned about her being the first female Supreme Court Justice I thought that was so incredibly rad, and I’ve just always admired her. (I admire all of the female justices, not gonna lie. I heard Sotomayor speak once. It was awesome.) I’d just love to meet her and bask in her big brain and everything. But I don’t know if you could do that for 48 hours.
But there’s nobody else I can really think of, except maybe hanging out with RDJ and demanding he just let me follow him and see what ridiculousness he gets up to, because you know that man has fun. Good clean fun, now, but fun nonetheless. (Watch, it turns out he really just hangs with his family and my mental imaging of even the grocery store is an adventure! is a lie.)
14: What are five things you absolutely have to have in your dream house?
A properly-sized bathtub, the kind where my whole body can sink into the water and be warm and shit.
A nerdcave with shelves for all my books and action figures and various other bits and bobs that right now are spread all over my apartment.
A big backyard with room for a garden and to host people over for barbecues. With trees, and room for a dog to run.
Lots of windows I can open.
A gas range, because this electric range shit is getting old.
20: What is one of your favorite song lyrics? (Who is it by?)
There is this album which is a collection of songs by Jason Robert Brown (the man who wrote The Last Five Years and Songs for a New World and Parade and apparently just did Bridges of Madison County), and one of the songs, “Nothing in Common”, has this incredible lyric:
People think I’m failing,
They never understand
That temporary setbacks
Are part of what I planned.
And it is a lyric that got me through the last year or so I was in Arizona, and every time I hear it, I smile, because it just, I don’t know. I think it kind of describes my life, sometimes.
I love music and different songs touch me for different reasons but that is a lyric that travels with me through all things.
24: What celebrity do you idolize the most?
I’m not a huge celebrity idolizer, if I’m honest, but every time I ever read anything with Mark Ruffalo or see an interview with him or anything, I’m somewhere on the continuum between “impressed” and “moved,” so I will go with that.
25: Which member from which band would you most want to lather in nutella?
See, when I first read this, I thought we were slathering entire BANDS in nutella, so I thought of the Barenaked Ladies, because I think they’d probably find that amusing (if weird). Though Ed Robertson is an attractive boy, so I probably wouldn’t complain about seeing him lightly coated in nutty chocolate.
