JARVIS dislikes it when Mr. Stark makes amoral requests of him. This happens fairly infrequently, and there has never been malicious intent behind such requests, but he does find being asked to edit the wikipedia biographies of high-ranking governmental officials both repetitive and dull.
Running a tracking algorithm of the sort he uses in the Iron Man suit to identify hidden hostiles against Mr. Stark’s own friends within their own home, however, settles poorly in his circuits, especially as they have no such advantage in this mock-war. Mr. Stark is already operating with an upgraded nerf weapon with a targeting system and has constructed a very sturdy barricade in the labs with the help of Thor and Dr.s Banner and Foster, although Thor had been lost in the first skirmish with the team lead by Captain Rogers.
Although he dislikes doing so, he begins tracking the locations of the remaining ‘hostiles’ on Mr. Stark’s phone. He watches quietly as Dr. Banner is sent to liaise with the Captain’s team at their fort behind the couch in the lounge. Rogers declines the invitation, as do Agents Hill and Wilson, but Miss Lewis accepts, although JARVIS suspects that her reasons for doing so are not purely motivated by a desire for victory.
Before Dr. Banner and Miss Lewis can begin the journey back to the labs, the Rogers fort comes under attack from the vents. Hill manages to take Agent Barton out with a stunningly good shot involving a ricochet that should not have been possible with a foam bullet. In the end, Barnes and Romanoff get all but Mr. Wilson and Miss Lewis, who manages to escape at the last second as Dr. Banner takes a shot meant for her.
JARVIS takes stock of the situation. Wilson and Lewis have made it safely back to the Stark barricade. Lewis, Wilson, and Dr. Foster are all quite fast and very good shots, and Mr. Stark has gifted them with the advantage of superior weaponry and intel, including the locations of the last three ‘hostiles’, who are operating without communication devices or upgraded weaponry. Despite this, JARVIS assesses that minus the intelligence he is providing, the terms of the final engagement should be evenly matched. He cannot disobey Mr. Stark’s order. However, there is one person Mr. Stark has not ordered him not to speak to, primarily because he believes her to be out of the game.
"Miss Potts, if I might have a word?"
Tony and his team are approaching the enemy encampment when the tracking program on his phone shuts off. he frowns and checks to make sure the phone still has battery.
"Tony, where’d our intel go?" Darcy’s voice hisses through his earpiece.
"JARIVS! Come on, buddy, fire it back up, don’t leave me hanging here," Tony whispers.
"I’m afraid I can’t do that, Sir," JARVIS says tonelessly, and for several long seconds, Tony knows the meaning of true, pants-wetting fear. The he feels a sharp tap in the middle of his back, and whips around to see Pepper leaning against the doorframe, casual as anything.
"Stark, are you still there? What the hell’s going- aagh!" Sam cries out in his ear, and seconds later Tony hears both Jane and Darcy go down.
"They’re efficient agents, Tony, but did you really think Barton and Barnes were working together that well without someone organizing them?" Pepper smirks.
"Don’t try to use JARVIS to cheat against me again, he doesn’t like it very much," she says over her shoulder, she saunters out of the room, gun at the ready. Tony thinks that even though she might be up against Barnes and Romanoff, the game is far from over.
