A Favorite TURN moment:
Peggy trying to cozy up to Ben at the party, presumably because of the whole “I don’t know any Culper! Intelligence is Tallmadge’s business!”
“You seem quite taken” says the woman everyone is in love with.
“We don’t often see such beautiful things in camp” Ben replies, gesturing to the clock.
“are you alone? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
"I am. Dad only brought me bc he had to, my three besties are off doing spy stuff, and my other bestie is upstairs tailoring and my almost girlfriend hates me I’m so sad and I only get two and a half hours of sleep every third leap year”
“care to dance” ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
“I am at your service”
“I should think so” ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
and then the next time we see Ben he’s getting snapped at by Arnold.
What happened during that dance. Or in the immediate aftermath. I need to Know. Because Peggy clearly intended to make attempts at working Ben over for info so. How did that conversation go?
Peggy: So…Major, what does the Head of Intelligence actually do?
Ben: Cry a lot. Hope for the best. Sometimes I punch things.
Peggy: and as a spymaster, what is your favorite aspect of-
Ben: we do a good job sometimes. that’s always nice.
Peggy: whatever is it like being both Head of Intelligence and carrying out your normal duties?
Ben: herding ducks
Peggy: if- theoretically - if you were to form a ,,,spy ring….
Ben: that is a very nice clock, miss Shippen, does it time
Peggy: I tried John
