Interlude: Ground Control to Agent Lewis

Work Text:

 Begin transmission.

 

00 00 00 01     CMP:  Control, this is The Spirit of Saint Lewis, over.

00 00 00 19     MCC: You can’t keep changing the name of your space shuttle.

00 00 00 34     CMP: Jane! You’re at Command? I thought Thor was planetside. 

00 00 00 55     MCC: He is. Mission reports?

00 00 01 41      CMP: Incoming. Is he off vanquishing evil?

00 00 03 06     MCC: Reports received. He’s...we’re figuring some stuff out.

00 00 03 37     CMP: Ouch. Do I want to know?

00 00 03 59     MCC: You know these transmissions are all recorded, right?

00 00 04 18     CMP: That’s why it’s your love life we’re discussing, not mine.

00 00 04 33     MCC: And what of your love life?

00 00 05 02     CMP: Let’s keep it professional, Doctor.

00 00 05 11     MCC: Haha.

00 00 07 51     MCC: Darcy! You have to rewrite the report on Brisene!

00 00 08 04    CMP: Why? 

00 00 08 25     MCC: All it says here is, “We came, we saw, we conquered.”

00 00 09 00     CMP: All true.

00 00 09 26     MCC: I’m sure there was more to it than that.

00 00 10 19      CMP: You might have to ask Bucky. I do recall a lot of screaming and an incontinent ambassador, but that could describe a lot of missions. 

00 00 12 03      MCC: Hm. So how is he.

00 00 12 39      CMP: The ambassador? Embarrassed, probably. But he lives to tell the tale. Or to spread a fabricated version out of shame.

00 00 13 28      MCC: Not him, your partner.

00 00 13 58      CMP: Bucky’s alright. 

00 00 14 20      MCC: Hm.

00 00 14 43      CMP: Wat.

00 00 15 15       MCC: Since when is it “Bucky?”

00 00 15 57      CMP: Probably sometime back in the 20s. I never asked.

00 00 16 33      MCC: Darcy.

00 00 17 19       CMP: What.

00 00 18 09      MCC: So I guess you’re getting along?

00 00 19 01       CMP: You could say that.

00 00 19 46      MCC: He got over the stalking?

00 00 20 27      CMP: There was no stalking, Your Honor.

00 00 21 20      MCC: But you talked about the lab incident? 

00 00 22 02      CMP: If you’re referring to my literally acid-washed jeans and shirt and bra and panties, then no, I repressed that memory.

00 00 22 32      MCC: Darcy

00 00 23 49      CMP: Things are good right now. I don’t want to mess it up by pushing to DTR.

00 00 24 58      CMP: But I mean, we’ll probably be eaten by space zombies or something before that can happen. So you know, things to look forward to.

00 00 26 03      MCC: Did you just call what you have with Barnes a relationship?

00 00 26 53      CMP: I also brought up space zombies, which you failed to mention. 

00 00 27 26      MCC: Space zombies aren’t a thing.

00 00 28 37      CMP: They could be a thing. After all the weird stuff we’ve seen, you think space zombies can’t be real?

00 00 30 00      MCC: Yes.

00 00 30 11       CMP: I bet you ten earth dollars there are space zombies somewhere, noshing on alien brains.

00 00 31 02       MCC: Earth dollars? 

00 00 31 40       CMP: To no one’s surprise, Earth currency is basically useless out in the great beyond. I’ve been told it makes for inferior fuel and is unpalatable.

00 00 33 36      MCC: Darcy

00 00 33 49      CMP: Jane 

00 00 36 06      MCC: Darcy

00 00 36 58      CMP: Ok I get it. I’m avoiding.

00 00 37 20      MCC: Daecyu

00 00 37 38      CMP: But that’s better than feeling my actual feelings and you know what I think about that nonsense.

00 00 39 01      MCC: Darcy, do you copy?

00 00 39 18      CMP: Jane? What’s going on?

00 00 40 21      MCC: There’s something wrong with the transmission. 

00 00 41 07      CMP: Ah that brings me back. You check the equipment, I get the fire extinguisher.

00 00 43 46      MCC: I’ll talk to you again at next check in.

00 00 44 50      CMP: Who’s getting the fire extinguisher while I’m gone, though?
