"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. 

Okay guys today at target a saw a shirt that said ‘Seas the day’ and I all I could think about was Percy. And my family didn’t get why i thought it was so funny. Then I thought about how all he wants to do is stay home and study and try his hardest to not seas the day but the gods won’t let him.

    ♆    SECOND SON  born to CRONUS  & RHEA, younger to Hades, older to Zeus. SWALLOWED by the father, saved by the brother. Poseidon was easy to anger and eager to challenge, put at odds against siblings and family alike by his own appetites. lustful adventures drove the god to seek out DEMETER & MEDUSA & PATROCLUS & MOST BELOVED AMPHITRITE ( some dare suspect he pursued also the goddess APHRODITE from which they begot two children ). appetites wide and ranging, unslaked though countless lovers held. hunger only tempered by diligence to DUTY. firm insistence that NEVER LESS than youngest brother but equal, and choosing to be at his side for the benefit of the cosmos. when lots were drawn to divide the world, he took upon his shoulders the sea and waters. CURRENTLY masked as MARCUS KANE, appearing in mid forties. he has learned much from reckless past and takes careful effort not to repeat mistakes of another world, another life. choice was made to appear older than his brothers & sisters who cling to visages of youth – he must not allow himself to fall into habits of old.  Marcus keeps near to younger brother ZEUS, now living as KLAUS, ever there to lend aid as need arises.  He keeps a modest home upon the shore’s edge where he beckons the tides in the eve and casts them off as he wakes.  MARCUS   makes appearances as a university history professor as it reminds him of the PERILS   of   youth

Can we get a sketch of Stan showing off Ford's embarrassing baby photo as Ford tries to stop him?

Ford tries to burn it but Stan’s already made 50 copies and hidden them around the house.

I had fic idea of an AU where Yoongi is a rapper covered in tattoos and he’s married to Seokjin who’s a famous opera singer who wears silk robes. And just I have this image of Yoongi looking at the maknae line and he’s all tough with piercings and a tattoo creeping up his neck and they’re mildly terrified until Yoongi goes, “You kids ever seen Pagliacci? It’s some good shit. My husband’s performing in it tonight, you should come see it.”
