Pt. 3 What the bloody hell is going on?
[SHIELD IN HOUSE SURVEILLANCE FILES: 02022017]
Loc: NYC SAFEHOUSE Maddison/59th
Fury: It’s good to see you again, Director.
Peggy: Director? You may call me Agent, as I’m sure we’ve never met. I want to see whoever is in charge here. What bloody fool thought it would be a good idea to pull me from the past?
Fury: Well, as for who’s in charge here, that would be the Directors Council. Only two members at the moment. Director Coulson, and Director Fury. You’ll know Fury when you see him. Tall, dark, handsome, sarcastic guy with an eye patch.
Peggy: <lips pursed> Hmph, I see. I assume he’s also the fool?
Fury: You know what they say about assumptions? Or is that not a saying yet? My predecessor, Director Margaret Carter created the Directorate Retrieval Protocol.
Peggy: <suddenly speechless>
Fury: Now I know this is gonna be a lot to absorb. We have to get you up to date on the tech and tools, as well as enough history of the last 70years as we can safely give you. Once this war is won…..
Peggy: I go back. <deep breath> Understood, you don’t want me mucking up the timeline. Killing or saving the wrong people.
Fury: <nodding> Amongst other things. Too much of the progress we have today was shaped in part by you and SHIELD. GOPHydra is trying to erase all that and drag us back to the 40’s.
Peggy: <becoming irate at the thought> Like flipping hell I’ll let that happen! Why are we still standing here like a pair of chattering monkeys? There’s work to be done!
Fury: Now that’s the Peg I remember! Full of piss and vinegar.
<Cell phone rings, Fury answers as Peg stares at the device>
Fury: Hill? Good. He wants to meet WHERE? Goddamn Stark. Fine, have the chopper ready.
Peggy: <momentarily hopeful> Stark? Howard Stark? Is he still alive?
Fury: No, I’m sorry. That was someone else, Howard’s gone, I can’t tell you any more. There’s going to be a lot of things we’re not going to be able to tell you. What happens to you and your friends is just a part of that. You will have mostly full access to files about the current situation. You understand. Now if you’ll excuse me, I apparently have a meeting at a diner. Agent Hill will get you settled in along with our other visiting recruits.
