Would you guys be wiling to do one that doesn't have Steve in it but is all about Steve? I'm thinking of Fury's initial meeting w/ Sharon asking her to protect Steve. Then, subsequent meetings where she reports relevant happenings. But since there are no relevant happenings (until TWS), Sharon's reports consist mainly of Steve's general comings and goings, his lame attempts to hit on her, and the embarrassing stuff he does when he's alone.
“Did you think I didn’t
know?” Fury raised an eyebrow.
“I think my recruiter
didn’t look into it. I expected you
would know, sir.” Sharon stood at parade
rest, only allowing the slightest twich of her lips towards a smile.
Fury hummed. “It’s why you’re here. And not why you’re here.”
“Sir?” She liked Suduko, crosswords and
thousand-piece puzzles. Fury was more
like one of the Fates speaking in riddles than anything else.
“I chose you for this
assignment because Former Director Carter wouldn’t trust anyone else with this
detail. I also chose you for this assignment because regardless of whose
blood you’ve got, you’re the only one I trust with this assignment.”
Sharon let out a slow,
steady breath, feeling the tension bleed out of her shoulders. “Thank you, sir.”
Fury was mulling over a
stack of paperwork, steam curling from his World’s
Best Boss mug that sat at his left elbow.
(She was pretty sure it was a gift from Natasha).
“Your monthly report,
Fury looked up, and sat
back. “Go on.”
“Exercise commences at
0400 hours each day, and ends at 0600.
Grocery shopping every other day, a—“
“—Single or multiple
“Supersoldiers only need
single trips, sir.”
Fury smirked and sipped
“Between 1400 and 1600
hours each Sunday he cleans and sings. He
orders take out once each week, only on Saturdays for his weekly movie marathon. He’s reached the 80s, if I’m not
mistaken. There were a lot of lightsaber noises and don’t-you-forget-about-me’s coming from his apartment last week. And the joke about his midday coffee run
being ‘A mission from God’.”
“Anything unusual or
concerning to report?”
“The number of times he’s
watched Indiana Jones is concerning.”
“He was reckless in the
field before, sir. I worry what new
ideas he’s been picking up.”
Fury smiled, all
teeth. “This is exactly why I chose you for this assignment, agent.”
Well I will approach this in two ways. ACD Canon quotes and BBC Sherlock quotes.
ACD Canon :
“It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but that you are a conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it.”
“You have a grand gift for silence, Watson. It makes you quite invaluable as a companion.”
“I know, my dear Watson, that you share my love of all that is bizarre and outside the conventions and humdrum routine of daily life.”
“You’re not hurt, Watson? For God’s sake, say that you are not hurt!“ It was worth a wound – it was worth many wounds – to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation.”
“I have never loved, Watson, but if I did and if the woman I loved had met such an end, I might act even as our lawless lion-hunter has done. Who knows?” – The Devil’s Foot. “By the Lord, it is as well for you. If you had killed Watson, you would not have got out of this room alive. Now, sir, what have you to say for yourself?” – The Three Garridebs.
“The relations between us in those latter days were peculiar. He was a man of habits, narrow and concentrated habits, and I had become one of them…..I was a whetstone for his mind. I stimulated him.
“I am lost without my Boswell.”
“…If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city…. ”
“You’ve got a boyfriend then? Which is fine by the way.” “I know it’s fine.”
“I am happy to play the fool. For you.”
“You, it’s always you John Watson. You keep me right.”
“I don’t mind.” “Anytime.”
“I’m glad no one saw that.” “What?” “You, ripping my clothes off in a darkened swimming pool. People might talk.”
“Take my hand.” “Now people will definitely talk.”
“You look sad, when you think he can’t see you.”
“I have a date” “that’s what I was suggesting”
“It(Sherlock Watson) could work.”
“You are a great boyfriend. Sherlock Holmes is a very lucky man…Don’t make me compete with Sherlock Holmes.”
“I’m his doctor.” “And only a fool argues with his doctor”
“The stuff you wanted to say but never did. Say it now” “No. I can't”
“There’s something I’ve always wanted to say but never have”
“You being all mysterious with your–cheekbones. And turning your coat collar up so you look cool.”
“I’d be lost without my blogger.”
“I was so alone. And I owe you so much.”
“But look how you care about John Watson. Your damsel in distress.”
There are many. But I have a tendency to forget quotes when someone asks for it. Feel free to add more.
