buying-the-space-farm  asked:

"Accidentally capture the wrong base"? .....tell us more? Please?

this was before we got agent agent back as our handler, and part of the reason why he finally turned up for work again. 

so the thing about clint is that hes 1. not a good listener and 2. hes deaf. mostly. these are separate issues because being mostly deaf doesnt stop him from understanding what people are saying most of the time, it just means that you have to be sure he knows youre trying to communicate with him before you say something. (and also that you should make sure your mask doesnt cover your mouth so he can lipread, but whatever.)

we had this agent—incredibly boring guy in the worst sort of way–who’d requested clint, nat, and i for an op. nat and i were supposed to hit two of the leaders of a crime syndicate while clint got the third. easy peasy, kill some guys, free some hostages, small country liberated, total cakewalk. but the agent running the op and the briefing took FOREVER. he was talking us through like none of us had ever overthrown a country before, explaining every minute detail. nat and i could just kinda zone out and let things wash over us, picking up the pertinent details, but clint cant really do that. his hearing aids help but they weren’t perfect, so he also had to be kinda lipreading just to keep up. which takes a lot of focus for incredibly boring info. naturally he zoned out too.

which was how he missed the fact that his guy was not actually staying in his incredibly fortified base-slash-villa. his hostages were, but he wasn’t. 

luckily, they covered this in the briefing packet we were each provided with, which was a mere 362 pages. 

so obviously none of us actually read it.

we poked through, got blueprints, guard schedules, alarm systems and so on, but didnt bother with most of the rest of it. 

they dropped us in the air over each of our respective targets, clint last. i had the cliffside resort, nat had the downtown headquarters, and clint had the base-villa. nat and i handled ours like pros, of course, corpses everywhere, and clint did too–mowed right through the security, got the hostages, and then called in that his syndicate leader wasnt there, what the hell, who gave me this bad intel.

which was when he was informed that the big bad wasnt IN the villa, he was on the ISLAND ACROSS from the villa, and that hed been supposed to covertly infiltrate the beach house there and quietly capture him. ideally without ever setting foot in the villa; he was just supposed to steal a boat from the villa docks and not get spotted by security. 

unfortunately, clint had blown up all the watercraft at the villa’s docks to keep syndicate members from escaping. which meant he still had to get to the island and capture this guy, but now there were no motorboats left. and if this syndicate jerkoff got away, fury was gonna have his hide.

and thats how clint wound up launching a one-man amphibious assault on an international crime syndicate from a paddleboat.

and also why clint reads his briefings now.

The Harrisville Haunting (The Conjuring)

In 1970, the Perron family, comprised of Mr. and Mrs. Perron and 5 daughters, moved into an old farmhouse in Harrisville Rhode Island. The house was a dream come true for the family, until things started becoming strange. The eldest of the Perron daughters, Andrea Perron, has reported that on the family’s very first day in the home a full-bodied apparition was visible to all of the children. Their experiences at the home would later be told through Andrea Perron’s Book series House of Darkness, House of Light, and through the movie The Conjuring (2013).

There were good spirits in the home. One kissed the girls before they fell asleep each night, another smelled of fragrant flowers. One spirit of a little boy played with their toys and grew attached to the youngest daughter. Unfortunately, there were also bad spirits in the home. They would physically torment the girls, pulling their hair and pushing them down at times. One entity repeatedly told one of the children “there are seven dead soldiers buried in the wall”. Of all the spirits in the home, there is only one that the family is reluctant to talk about. In Andrea Perron’s book she alluded to the fact that a male entity may have molested the girls in the house.

In the movie, The Conjuring, an emphasis was placed on the presence of a spirit named Bathsheba. While there was a woman who lived in the house in the early 1800′s named Bathsheba Thayer, the Perrons claim that her spirit acted out because of the way she was mistreated in life (she was accused of killing a child who died in her care). Bathsheba targeted Mrs. Perron, supposedly because she lusted after Mr. Perron. Another malevolent female presence was thought to be the spirit of Mrs. Arnold who hung herself in the barn at the age of 93 in the 1700′s. The family claims to have seen the horrific apparition of Mrs. Arnold and Andrea Perron has said that the image of her was considered too gruesome to portray in the film.

Though the Perron family no longer resides in the house, it still stands today.

@houdini & doyle fandom (and sympathizers), watch the show, boost the ratings

Due to low ratings, FOX reviewers predict Houdini and Doyle’ may be cancelled

“Houdini & Doyle Review: Drab Period Drama Is a No-Wit Sherlock”

no-wit? so is supernatural - or as someone on tumblr eloquently put it, farm boy ghost hunters - and yet it’s on season 92

at least the characters/actors on h&d are likable and endearing and interesting, and they have an actual plot and development aside from scooby doo ghost hunting, unlike some

p.s.: they’re not trying to be bbc’s sherlock or even elementary, jfc people

stop cancelling quirky little gems while forcing us to endure shows like farm boy ghost hunters who die every five minutes and nobody cares anyway

*** even if FOX does cancel it, if the show generates enough interest, maybe another station will pick it up for season 2
