Best underreaction ever.
That guy needs his own movie.
In my headcanon, Bruce mentioned this to Nick Fury, and Nick immediately sent Maria Hill out to hire him. He’s the night watchman, runs the cameras and patrols the halls of one of SHIELD’s front companies, over one of their most important top secret facilities. The guy doesn’t know what he’s sitting on, of course, but he’s unflappable and unfailingly sensible and sees the facility through every weird situation with the same patient attitude.
Bruce appreciates him and always makes sure to stop by the desk when he’s nearby, ask about the guy’s wife and kids and grandkids. He gets invited to Thanksgiving and the missus keeps trying to set him up with their daughter.
When Steve meets him, they swap war stories and instantly become BFFs, and sometimes Steve comes by during the guy’s shift with classic diner food and they play Gin for a couple hours over burgers or soup or meatloaf with mashed potatoes and Coca-Cola in glass bottles.
Thor loves to hear the guy tell stories, and believes him the skald of SHIELD.
I co-sign this head-cannon! ^_^
Emmalyn’s 200-Follower Giveaway!
What you can win (includes merch and mini-commissions from yours truly):
- The Avengers Pack: Includes an embroidered iron-on S.H.I.E.L.D patch and 25 temporary tattoos.
- My Little Pony cutie mark patch: (It won’t be iron-on like the design in this picture, this is just an example of my hand-painting with fabric paint.) A custom patch, up to 3”x3”, with your choice of cutie mark. Your choice of Velcro-backed or sew-on (no Velcro). Can be hand-washed.
- Homestuck patch: Includes an embroidered iron-on Ghostbusters patch. Will jazz up any John cosplayer’s jacket or backpack. Or, if you’re not a John fan, I can make you a patch of any character’s symbol (same details as #2).
- Portal patch: Same as #2, but with your favorite Aperture logo/symbol on a patch. Or I can make a flat Perler bead Companion Cube (like this) for you! (Again, the above photo is just an example of my hand-painting with fabric paint; your design may vary.)
- Small custom Perler bead pony: These guys are pretty darn cute, and will be custom-designed to look like your favorite pony. Works great as a wall decoration, thanks to those handy thumbtack-sized holes!
- Mass Effect patch: Same as #2, but with your choice of Mass Effect design! (The pictured patch is just to show the size; here are a few examples of my N7 & SR2 stenciling done with fabric paint.)
- Mass Effect mini hanar plush: Will be about half the size of the guy in the picture, but just as cuddly! Made from fleece and stuffed with poly-fiberfill.
- Megamind bracelet: I’ll make you a leather (or pleather, if you’d rather) 1” wide snap-closure bracelet with SPIKES. LOTS OF SPIKES. Choose from “real” (sharp) 1/2” spikes or child-friendly 1/2” pyramids. Or both, alternating. I’ll get your wrist size after the giveaway ends!
- Megamind patch (not pictured): I can also do a Megamind-themed “M” or lightning-bolt patch for you, as described in #2!
- There will be at least 3 winners, possibly up to 5 if this gets more than 100 notes! I’ll choose winners one at a time, and allow the first winner to have their first pick of prize, and so on. I only have one each of #2 & #3, but can do multiples of the mini-commissions.
- You do NOT have to be following me. This is in thanks for my current followers, not a bid to gain new ones. ;) (No giveaway blogs, please.)
- Winners will be chosen with a random number generator.
- Reblogging counts as one entry, and liking counts as another. More than once for either won’t show up in the notes anyway!
- You must be willing to give me your home address. (These will all ship in regular or bubble mailers, because I can’t afford to ship this many parcels!)
- The giveaway will end on Friday, October 5th, at 11:59:59 PM MST (Mountain Time is -6:00 GMT, just fyi).
- Your ask box must be open so I can contact you if you win! If a winner doesn’t respond within a couple of days, I’ll pick a new one.
- Please be patient with custom commissions. These will take the backseat to paid commissions, so it may be a few weeks before you get your prize. <3
- If you don’t have a Tumblr, or need an exception to these rules, send me a message! I may make an exception if you message me. (No purchase necessary, no law-breaking, etc., hahasldfkgj)
- Just have fun with it, come on! ;)
