No Hulk in this chapter. Just couldn't work him in. Sorry everybody. Nothing too serious in this chapter. Just a bit of fun.
Harry skipped off of the chopper whistling happily. On his right was Natasha and on his left was Bruce. He couldn't be happier.
Well, he could be if this place had treacle tart, but he didn't think it did. Nonetheless, he was satisfied with life at the moment.
Natasha walked up to a constipated looking one eyed man.
"Agent Romanoff, I sent you off for one man not two." He glared at her.
"Sir, Bruce Banner is attached to the young man and I felt that it would be-"
"Hi!" Harry bounced up to the man with a smile.
"I'm Harry Potter! Who are you?"
Fury's eye widened and he whipped his head to Natasha.
"Where did you find Harry Potter?! I've been trying to find him to recruit him to the Avengers program but he disappeared without a trace!"
"Eh? I've been in Calcutta."
"Oh dear I forgot to tell Harry about the spell I put on him." Hermione frowned.
"Spell?" Ron asked. Hermione nodded.
"I put a spell on all of us. It's a more advanced form of the notice me not spell. He's really only noticeable once he draws more attention to himself. Otherwise, he's basically an uninteresting face in the crowd."
-With Harry and Fury-
Fury narrowed his eyes.
"Mr. Harry Potter, I've been recruiting a team of heroes. Will you join?" Truthfully, Fury thought he would especially since Harry had been Bruce's companion for the last couple of weeks. He narrowed his eyes and wondered how he and every one of his agents had missed him.
Harry shook his head.
"I'd rather not. I'm out of the hero business. Maybe later after my vacation."
Fury frowned. He hadn't expected this.
"And if something happens while you are around? Will you help us?"
"Well of course I would help!" Harry huffed incredibly offended.
Fury nodded. At least he had an honorary member.
"Come on. I'll introduce you to the rest of your team."
Harry blinked and then shrugged.
Natasha kept stealing glances at Harry. This was Harry Potter? This small innocent looking teen? He faced a dark lord? He saved the world? He was the most powerful wizard in the world?!
Inwardly, she struggled with herself. She didn't want to believe it. She didn't want to believe that Harry had gone through so much in his short life. That this child had been thrown into the front lines and had killed. Natasha's fingers twitched toward her gun. She wished she could put a bullet through someone's head right now. More specifically the person who thought it was a good idea to have such a sweet child fight. She forced herself to pull her hand away from her gun. First Bruce and now this. She was going to have to wrap up Harry in bubble wrap and lock him away somewhere safe after all of this was over. She'd preserve his innocence. Even if it killed her.
Harry and co. walked into the room with the last two members of the avengers, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. The two males were currently arguing. From Fury's scowl and stance Bruce figured that this was a common occurrence.
"I pity any woman who would have kids with you. Better yet I pity the kids." Steve said glaring at Tony.
Tony looked at him outrageously offended.
"I would be a great dad!"
"Yeah right," Steve snorted, "you'd probably throw money at the kid and go off with whatever pretty woman fluttered her eyelashes at you."
"I'll have you know that women come after me. Not the other way around. And I would be a great dad! I'd be there for all the school plays and they would have the latest toys and gadgets and and- " Tony turned to face them and his face brightened when he looked at Harry.
"Hey kid can I adopt you?"
"You want to adopt me?" He asked surprised.
"Tony! You can't adopt someone else's kid to prove a point!" Steve argued.
"I'm an orphan actually."
Steve looked embarrassed.
"Oh. I'm sorry."
"Well can I kid?" Tony pressed. Harry scratched his head in thought. Well...he'd always wanted a dad and besides he was sure that this was all just good fun.
"Sure!" Harry beamed.
"Great!" Tony clapped his hands.
"Oh god." Steve face palmed
Bruce just sighed. It figures that he would travel across the world and meet someone just as…unique as Harry.
A few minutes later and they were all sitting around a round table. Fury was explaining about something but Harry was tuning him out. Instead he was whispering with Tony.
"Harry James Potter."
"How about Harry James Eric Stark?"
"Harry James Eric Potter-Stark?"
"Perfect." Harry whispered back then he paused "why Eric?"
Tony shrugged slightly.
Harry nodded. Tony made perfect sense.
"Really? Huh, guess I'll have to tweak the adoption papers a bit."
"Why?" Harry asked confused.
"I'm not sure if it's legal to adopt an 18 year old. If it's not I'm sure I can get around it. I'll ask Pepper."
"Why are you asking a seasoning?"
"Pepper is my secretary not a seasoning but I'll tell her you said that. I can't wait to see the look on her face." They both giggled quietly. Fury cleared his throat and looked at them pointedly.
They straightened up and pasted serious expressions on their face. Fury wasn't fooled for a second but he continued talking.
"So you're a friend of Banners?"
"I'm his traveling companion."
"Traveling companion?" Tony raised his eyebrows. He leaned over Harry a bit and drew Bruce's attention.
"Hello Mr. Banner we haven't been properly introduced my name is Tony Stark. I'm a big fan."
"It's a pleasure to meet you." Bruce glanced at Fury hesitantly. The man's eyebrow was twitching at being interrupted again.
"What are your attentions toward my son?"
Bruce's face reddened.
"Dad!" Harry hissed.
Across the table Steve groaned.
"Gentlemen! Will you please pay attention!"
The three males turned their attention back to Fury.
"This is not a game! If this object falls into the wrong hands then the world will be in great danger."
"And this thing is?" Tony asked.
Fury clenched his jaw. He had just explained this. He grunted and turned back to the hologram.
"This, gentlemen, is theTesseract.
AN: Sorry but harry is not an official avenger, but don't worry you are going to love what comes next. We finally get to see phil Coulson! Woot!
