Kids, remember how I told you about how we all had doppelgangers? Moustache Marshall, Stripper Lilly, Robot Wrestler Ted, well, in February of 2012, Robin's doppelganger changed her life and everyone else's forever.
You see, Robin's Doppelganger, Lesbian Robin (whose real name was Maria Hill,) had just gotten a job offer from an agency called SHIELD. Little did she know that this job might not be hers for the taking.
Robin walked out of her apartment on a cloudy afternoon. She was on her way to MacLaren's to get a drink with the guys. Things with her and Barney had been pretty awkward and confusing, but at the moment she was single.
A black limo pulled up next to her, and a man wearing sunglasses poked his head out of the window. "Maria? Get in the car." He said.
Robin looked around; everyone else was walking fast and didn't even seem to notice.
"Maria. Get in the car." He repeated. "Don't worry; we know."
"I'm not Maria, I'm Robin. Robin Scherbatsky? I'm on the news."
"Maria, get in the car, you are surrounded."
Robin made a little squeak in the back of your throat and looked around at the people in black suits around them, many of them carrying guns. They were in their pockets, but she could still see them. She looked around a second time and then proceeded to get in the limo. The ride was silent.
SHIELD HEADQUARTERS 1800 hours
"What the hell did you do, Coulson?" Nick Fury shouted, the vein in his neck popping out.
"I'm sorry sir… " Said Agent Phil Coulson "I didn't know we had the wrong person; this Robin person looks very similar to the real Maria Hill."
"Yeah, that's true, but you still made a stupid-ass mistake. Go fix it. I'm going to let you off the hook because you look pretty fucking sad."
"Thank you sir," said Phil meekly. He knew he could've lost his job over this. He had to talk to Robin. Walking towards the elevator he passed Agent Romanoff. 'Don't look, don't look, don't look, don't look.' He said to himself.
"Hey, Coulson! I heard something happened with this new Maria Agent."
"Natasha, please keep this a secret. I'm assuming Clint knows, but don't tell anyone else."
"Oooh, Natasha, that means it's serious, so what's wrong, is she a spy?"
"Leave me alone." Said Phil while walking onto the elevator. Natasha (of course) followed him.
"So, what's the problem, is she out of shape? Was her profile wrong? Is she old?"
"Natasha, leave me alone." Coulson did NOT want her to bug him about this forever. The elevator doors opened. They walked down the hallway and opened the door, Robin was sitting on the bed.
"What am I doing here?" Said Robin, "I should be able to see a lawyer; you can't keep me here against my will." Natasha was holding back laughter in the corner.
"We have a job offer for you, 4 million dollars per year. If you don't accept we will have to relocate you."
"What the hell? You can't do that, I have rights!" 'Shit' She thought. 'What the hell am I going to do. Who are these people?' Suddenly a tall black man came in. He looked kind of like a Bond villain.
"Ms. Scherbatsky," He said, "we would like to formally offer you a position as an agent at SHIELD, it will pay well, and we will find a replacement for your normal job. You would serve the world. Robin, the world needs you."
"What makes you think I'm qualified?"
"We understand you know how to handle a gun…"
