From: Darcy

I stole your number from Nat

Also hi this is Darcy


To: Darcy

From: Steve

You stole from Nat. Is that even possible?


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Weeeeeell, more like I asked her what kind of phone she had, saw your number and promptly told her I was taking it. She didn't argue so I figured it was okay.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

If it wasn't you would know. Any particular reason you needed my number?


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Not really, just wanted it.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

Should I be worried?


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Meh, probably not.

But maybe yes.

Mostly I want to see how many references I can make to things you don't know about before you catch on and I'm bored because Jane is sciencing away and I left my iPod upstairs.

We should hang out again.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

If this is another attempt to drag me to see some kind of movie aimed at women...


To: Steve

From: Darcy

They're called chick flicks, and it's not. Yet. Muwahahaha.

Besides, if I want you to do something all I have to do is ask Nat to make you.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

And if you try to tell me you didn't like Penelope you're a lying liar who lies.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

And if I say I'm not going to watch another chick flick?


To: Darcy

From: Steve

Is the small red thing on Coulson's desk your iPod?


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Steve Rogers, you know as well as I do that if I want you to come do something with me you'll say yes because you know better than to tell Nat no.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

Everyone knows better than to tell Natasha no.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Fine then I'll make your ringtone "Smack That" and not tell you how to change it back.

Also yes it is and I totally should have known Coulson had it. AGAIN.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

You'll change it to what?


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Riiiiight, forgot you're more behind on the music scene than you are everything else.

But this totally means I can change it and you won't have a clue and that's a beautiful thought.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

Smack That is not music.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

I dunno, it's kinda catchy. Gets stuck in my head sometimes, hence why it's on my iPod.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Smack that, all on the floor...


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Wait, did you take my iPod just to listen to that?


To: Darcy

From: Steve

You have a lot on here by AC/DC. Isn't that one of the bands Stark likes? I can never tell what the songs actually are when he plays them. All I hear is noise and Miss Potts yelling at him to turn it down.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Well somebody's getting a shitton of CD's. I would just upload the songs for you but according to Nat you have a record player and a radio and not much else. Time to get with the new age Steve!

Or at the very least this century. I'll dust off my old CD player for you. The pink one with Hello Kitty all over it that I got in like sixth grade.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

Why was Natasha in my apartment?


To: Darcy

From: Steve

On second thought, I don't want to know.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Are you still messing with my iPod? I knew I shouldn't have left it on my desk. Coulson always steals it. Bring it to me before I tape Jane's mouth shut. All I'm hearing is blah blah science blah blah magic blah blah Darcy if you don't stop making Charlie Brown's teacher noises at me I'll lock you in the supply closet.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

A soundtrack means The Princess Bride is a movie right?


To: Steve

From: Darcy

ARE YOU SERIOUS


To: Steve

From: Darcy

YOU SERIOUSLY DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE PRINCESS BRIDE


To: Darcy

From: Steve

Are you actually yelling?


To: Darcy

From: Steve

I can actually hear you yelling in the basement and I'm twenty three floors away.


To: Steve

From: Jane

stop making darcy yell. it's scaring the other interns.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

The next time I see you, you're getting both the book and the movie.

Seriously, this is like a crime or something. Never heard of The Princess Bride. What the hell. What. The. Hell.


To: Natasha

From: Steve

Natasha. Why.


To: Steve

From: Natasha

Sorry Cap, I'm with Darcy on this one. The Princess Bride is mandatory. No exceptions.

But if you're asking why I let Darcy get your number, the answer is simple: I thought it would be entertaining.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Read the book first and then watch the movie. Seriously. I mean it. Buy them if you have to. I'll loan you my copies. I'll steal them for you. Whatever it takes. Everyone must experience TBP. No exclusions, substitutions, or refunds.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

...was that last line a reference to something? I have a feeling it was.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

Oy. You're worse than I imagined. Don't worry dude, I'll get you up to speed. We might even get you through the eighties before the world ends. Big hair, bright neon colors, tight pants, David Bowie's crotch.

I have pictures of Coulson in metallic leggings from 1984. It's hilarious.


To: Darcy

From: Steve

That is a terrifying mental image.


To: Steve

From: Darcy

You ain't seen nothing yet.


To: Steve

From: Jane

why is my assistant laughing maniacally


To: Jane

From: Steve

I don't know but I have a feeling I should be afraid.


To: Lewis, Darcy

From: Coulson, Phil

Where did you get them, why did you get them, how did you get them, and how many people have you shown the photos to?


To: Son of Coul, Steve

From: Jane

okay seriously if you guys don't stop making darcy laugh like that i'm locking the three of you in a room with her and shutting off the wifi and if she ties you guys up out of sheer boredom i'm not going to feel sorry for either of you
