Who: Peter and Darcy
What: Random conversation at SI
Peter had gone in on Sunday when he realized part way throw a movie that he'd completely forgotten to fix Stark's meetings for the week. Normally that was something he'd try to do on Friday, but he was pumped for that party, excited Gamora agreed to go and he wasn't thinking straight.
And of course, all of Stark's shit was so locked down, he had to actually go to SI to fix it. What he'd expected to take a few minutes quickly turned into a few hours by the time he finally turned off his computer. Yawning, he stretched his arms and started to trudge out when he realized for the first time that he wasn't alone on the floor. "Hello?," he called out, walking into the hallway.
Darcy had come into the office, after leaving Loki to sleep. She had somethings she needed to look into. Think of it as a personal project. But when she heard someone call out, she came to move and poke her head out of her office. Hey Star-Dork" She said teasing as she leaned against the frame of her door and smiled at Peter. A light wave of her fingers was given as she came to watch him. "What brings you in on Sunday?"
"Forgot something," he said. Darcy was slowly growing on him. Not like a disease or something....maybe like a third nipple. "And I dunno, starting to get bored with Netflix. I'm used to space adventures not making lunch dates with senators."
He scratched his head. "What ‘bout you? Don't you have a life?"
"Personal project," She said honestly as she came to smile at Peter. He wasn't bad...Okay, his coffee making skills were horrible but the guy himself was pretty cool to talk with. "I have a life, I just have priorities also"
“Yah, that's fair. I don't know that I have much of a life." as evidenced by gaining about 5 lbs in the last month or so. "I really need to get out there and do something but it's not like space travel is a thing here." Hard roll of the eyes. "This place is so backwards. How do you guys even exist??"
Darcy laughed. "By existing. It wasn't until recent that we started learning about aliens and God's and such" she said as she thought. "Hobbies are good. I have hobbies"
"Oh yeah." Peter forgot about that. His life was so unbelievably different than that of his Terran counterparts.
Frick, his girlfriend had green skin, and one of his friends was a talking tree.
"But now you're banging one, aren't you? How does that work? Is it like a genie? You get a wish when you rub one out?"
"What are you talking about now?" She asked with a quizzical look on her face. Talking to Peter was always interesting... seeing how the man was about as random and a two year old telling you a story. Still the sarcasm was real so that was always fun.
He waved a dismissive hand in the air. "Isn't that thunder god guy's brother a god too? It's hard to keep up when I give zero fucks, but you hear things." Peter gave a stellar grin. "I hear everything. People think I'm nobody in this position, so secrets are all mine."
He liked having things to bargain with.
"Yeah his brother is a God.... why?" She asked as her body shifted from one side to the next. In truth she was tensed because why would Peter suddenly be interested in Loki. Anyone who asked about Loki she was defensive with because she knew who Loki was and what he'd done.
Peter had no idea where he was going with this train of thought. "I dunno, I probably had a point but doesn't matter. More something like 'there's always been gods among us' or some poetic shit." As if he’d ever been poetic in his life. He shrugged. "As long as you're having fun and no one gets hurt, who fucking cares, right? Your life."
"Wait...are you trying to give me relationship advice???" She asked with a raised brow as she stared at Peter for the moment. Did everyone outside her small group of friends suddenly know she was dating Loki???
"Nah man, you do you." Peter had to admit: he kind of liked seeing Darcy flustered. So far, he hadn't been able to beat any of their battle of wits (well, he'd maybe had the last word on a few), so this? This was very satisfying. "I'd be the worst to take advice from. My girl and I have taken turns trying to kill each other over the years. She kicks my ass all the time." He got a starry look in his eyes. "She's the best."
Darcy couldn't help but laugh but also admire Peter and the way he talked about his girlfriend. She thought about Loki for the moment. They had their problems, but her things were good, nothing else mattered. "Everyone's relationship has their thing." She crossed her arms for the moment and smiles at Peter.
"Exactly! And you're the only one who knows what you can take or can't. Doesn't matter what others say."
He looked around the empty building. "Hey, you wanna get a slurpee or something? It's no good being cooped up at work all the time. I'll buy."
Darcy hasn't had a slurpee in years. So she smiled brightly. "Dude, I haven't had a slurpee in forever." She said switching the light to her office off. "So..what’s your story?"
Peter waited for Darcy, and amicably started walking next to her as they left the building. "My story?" That Morse chick had done a really good job of making it sound cooler than it was. "I dunno. Was kidnapped by space pirates when I was 8, raised by them, did some bad ass stuff, saved the galaxy a few times with my friends, got called to this time stream which was great because Gamora got here before me, and we were all worried about her." He shrugged. "That's about it I mean, I could give you all the details, since it was pretty cool, but that'd take forever. They should just make a movie about me. It'd be super cool. With awesome music."
Was she blinking? She was. "Holy shit." Is all she said shaking her head for the moment.
Everyone had a story, and Darcy was she tasered the God of Thunder and was dangerously in love with the God of Mischief. Aside that she was just a poli sci major. But she helped. And saved London. That's what counted. And Loki loved her in a way no one else ever has. "At this point, they should just make a movie about all this craziness." She added with a smile.
"I would watch that," Peter said cheerfully. "I've always thought I'd make one kick-ass action hero."
"Egotistical much." She said smiling. "So how'd you end up working for Tony?" Asking since Darcy had no real idea how everyone was connected to each other. Minis showing up here suddenly
How did he end up working for him? Peter had to think back and eventually he shrugged. "I remember hot dogs being involved. Think it was at that Cap guy's birthday. The one that's super old but isn't. Anyways, Tony's got my ship and is helping me fix it. Then he offered me your old job and since I'm broke, I took it."
He thought for a moment before adding, "Does Ms. Potts hate you too? She's terrifying."
She was laughing at this point. "Nope. But I don't think she's scary either " she added with a smile to her lips for the moment. Pepper was awesome, that's what Darcy thought and she's good for Tony.
Peter thought Pepper was super scary. "She always looks at me like I'm lucky to breathe the same air as her.". And to be honest, that was kind of true. "I try to stay out of her way. Tony seems to think I'm doing an okay job, so that's all that matters, right?"
He tilted his head. "And what do you do again? I've already forgotten."
Her head was shaking. "I basically make sure our alien residents don't get hauled away by our government and they know their rights. As well as know about their own laws.”
Peter thought for a moment. "Hey do I count as an alien? I mean, I've lived in space more than I have on Ter -- I mean, Earth."
Darcy honestly thought for the moment. "I’m going to say yes. Mainly because you weren't raised here. You're raised in space so yeah." Points. "You're an alien." Smiles.
"Sweet." He gave an approving nod. "Finally, something I have in common with my girl then. Now hurry up -- you're delaying my sugar high, and you do not want to be in the middle of that."
Seriously...this was Darcy’s life now...Gods, and aliens... She could get down with that. But she laughed trailing behind Peter. “I’m coming!" She said laughing.
