Widow's Insight [Open, Cut for Spoilers]

The first thing that Natasha Romanoff - as she had allowed herself to be called in recent years - had done after she had popped out of a gooey pod (and subsequently gotten clothed, briefed on the situation at hand, and retrieved her weapons) was familiarize herself with the spaceship that she had found herself on. It had taken a long while - the size of the ship made the SHIELD Helicarrier seem akin to a SmartCar - but she’d scoured as much of the place as she could, because it was always useful to know one’s bearings.

Especially in a situation like this, where it seemed as though literally anything could happen. And a situation that I’ve never really been trained for. I mean, the Chitauri attacking New York - that was one thing. But this. This is something even I never expected. Because, really, who actually expects to be plucked out of your home by a multiverse hopping spaceship made out of living...something. I was just getting used to the idea of Norse gods being real, and alien invasions becoming a semi-regular thing. She was, she knew, a long way from the simple world of spying, espionage, and assassinations that she was used to. But, then again, this could just be much of the same. Only in space.

That was, though, still somewhat of a new concept to her. Sure, she'd had colleagues who had gone into space - Iron Man with his penchant for pushing the limits of his iron armour specifically came to mind, as did some fellow SHIELD agents - but Natasha had always had two feet on the ground.

You know, except for those moments where she was piloting an alien aircraft to save the world or something.

Still, true to her training, Natasha had taken it all in stride. She wouldn’t allow herself to be fazed by the situation at hand - to do so would be potentially life-threatening, and while Natasha was always prepared for death (because it could happen so easily in her line of work), she wasn’t at the moment ready to die. Only if it means saving all of reality, she mused as she walked up towards the Observation Deck. If anything can clear off all of the red in my's this.

It was a rare day that Kang's walking had led him to the Observation Deck. He hadn't really been paying attention to where he was going, lost in his own thoughts. Normally, he could keep himself busy at the tavern, but the focus of said thoughts was Kaylee, who had been repodded recently; he had to remind himself constantly that she wasn't there anymore, and possibly wouldn't be back for a long time. He really didn't have many people left around that he was close to.

He stood by one of the windows, staring out into the Bleed with his arms crossed over his chest.

Kang turned at the voice, and noticed the hair immediately; it was almost exactly the same shade of red as Huzzad's had been. He smiled wryly, facing the window again, "No, it isn't. You're new, aren't you, ma'am?" His accent sounded a bit like Romanian, but not quite as heavy, and some of the pronunciation was off.
governorkang: (This is fun / Go fish!)

"Kang. I'm one of the Councilors on Stacy," he took her hand, careful of his claws. "Well met, miss Romanoff. Normally, she has several people wake up at once; it's only very, very recently she's started with individuals."
governorkang: (Having fun)

Kang smiled slightly. "The Mr. isn't necessary. We actually have no idea. It may have something to do with our recent liberation from the Daligig, but Stacy hasn't said a word about it."

"Yes." This woman was interesting. Kang kind of liked her already, with how easily she seemed to accept the situation and her straightforwardness with wanting answers. Much easier to deal with. "If you're not in one of her blind spots, she'll answer to the best of her abilities. I don't think anyone has asked her; if they have, they haven't shared the information with the rest of us."

He likely would have heard it. He heard lots of things in the tavern.
governorkang: (Having a good day)

"Maybe someone should," Kang quirked an eyebrow ridge at her, smiling. It was a clear invitation for her to do so.
governorkang: (Body language)

[personal profile] governorkang 2012-06-10 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
Interrogations? Yes, she was very interesting. Kang gestured to the air, "Just speak. Most places on the ship, she can hear you."

|| The Daligig attempted to sabotage my pod release programming before they fled. I fought the changes, so instead of pod releases no longer happening, they will occur more frequently, as individuals are ready. ||
governorkang: (Well shit / Disgusting)

Kang muttered a curse, snorting. "Can't say I'm surprised by that."
governorkang: (Neutral)

[personal profile] governorkang 2012-06-11 12:12 am (UTC)(link)
"We are, yes. It doesn't mean they won't find some way to harass us in the future, though."

Kang didn't believe in sugarcoating things.

Kang hesitated for a moment, unsure of how much to tell Natasha. He had no idea if she was even trustworthy yet.

"What was your profession in your universe?"

After a few seconds of consideration, the tip of his tail moving slightly as he thought, Kang spoke, "Contact Goliath. He lives in Castle Wyvern, in the City."

Kang made a mental note to talk to Dean about Natasha. "He's a good friend of mine. He'll be interested in your information-gathering skills."
