Fandom: Thor/The Avengers
Warnings/Spoilers: Both films
Summary: She knows exactly when her life plans changed.
Notes: Written for avengers100 prompt #1 beginnings. Shield Shock took over my life for the Avengers Movieverse... but Darcy really took over, lol.
She knows exactly when her life plans changed. Mainly she was going to college and switching majors so she could avoid real life, because in reality she had no idea what she really wanted to do with her life. She didn’t see herself as a teacher or a musician (especially since she couldn’t carry a tune to save her life), she couldn’t see herself as a artist (unless stick figures were in) or a professional speaker (small groups of friends were no problem, but large groups that were there to argue points or judge her, no way in hell).
The moment when her life plans change? A giant robot alien thing destroys the town she’s in WHILE she’s there watching the battle unfold in front of her eyes. She could even consider the moment when she actually believed in Thor’s story of him being the god of thunder. Her life turned into a comic book storyline where superheroes and aliens existed, other worlds weren’t a theory anymore.
Still, it wasn’t until Thor returned to Earth and invited Jane into the Avengers Tower that her life plans presented itself to her. She loved hanging around them – the Avengers. They each had a special quirk that matched their personality and she fell in love with all of them (although not in love with them in love with them). Thor and his Asgardian puppy-like personality. Tony and his sarcastic wit (and his amazing Stark tech that was so much better than her iPod!). Clint and his nesting habit… and his affinity for arrows. Natasha and her killer style and ninja skills. Bruce and the Hulk. Steve with his beautiful sketches and old fashioned personality that was charming.
Being the official Avengers Liaison wasn’t exactly easy, but she wouldn’t trade it for the world.
