Secret Avengers #7
Surprisingly, reading a book for a second time has proved to be not as boring as I thought.
What book did you re-read?
If no one understood why Beyonce was my queen before… well, they should now.
The fact there are people in this world who don’t understand why Beyoncé would be anyone’s queen is troubling in itself.
[sighs in relief, grinning] You’re amazing, you know that? Next time I go out for Mexican, which… [trails off, glancing at his watch-less wrist before looking back to her] Should be pretty soon now that I think about it, I’ll bring you back something. What do you want? Tacos, burritos, or chimichangas? Or a few of each? I don’t judge.
[grins] Yeah, I know. [perks up] You’re going out for Mexican soon? A burrito sounds amazing, actually.
[says in a serious tone] I was born into SHIELD. My entire life has revolved around SHIELD. I have sacrificed more than you know for the sake of SHIELD. I’ve worked just as hard as you have for SHIELD. If you think I’m going to let what’s rightfully mine slip out of my hands so easily again, you are horribly mistaken, Maria. [begins to walk passed Maria stopping after a few feet and says over her shoulder at her] And if you do get the position back, it won’t be without a long and exhausting fight. Until then, it’s my position. [continues to walk off towards her next destination]
[rolls her eyes at Peggy’s explanation] Just because you were born into SHIELD, doesn’t mean you automatically deserve anything this agency has to offer. There’s a reason Fury chose me over you to be his right hand during the Battle of New York, Carter. Hard work is what gets you places, not a silver spoon that was shoved in your mouth at birth. [lets Peggy walk by her and shrugs before turning around and calling after the girl before turning and walking off in the opposite direction] Bring it on then.
[groans] Fuck, I’m never going to get a day off then.
[chuckles] Probably not but if Fury ever sends me to Canada, I’ll try to bring you back some maple syrup.
a few of the lovely ladies of Marvel
I lived a couple hours north of the city and would spend weekends there with my parents until I went to college. Do they still have that awesome taco truck that would park near the Allerton Hotel? I used to have dreams about that truck.
Taquero Fusion? It is! Crap, I don’t blame you, those tacos are heavenly.
[chuckles] You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to hear someone say ‘they’re back’.
Well, obviously, it’s been for awhile. [sticks out her hand] I’m Maria Hill.
