It's been a long day in Hel… literally, and Carol is taking some time to get back in touch with her basic New York habitation. Mainly getting a hot dog with all the fixings from a stand. Sliding the vendor some cash, she glances around, her blonde hair flowing behind her as she takes a few steps, eating the dog as she goes.

Yeah, Hela makes a good spread, but there's just something about a mid-morning New York Hot Dog. Especially this time of day when they're the freshest. Looking none the worse for wear, Carol keeps walking down the street, enjoying the feel of the Sun on her face. If she were more impulsive she'd just fly, but she still has the discipline and awareness of secret identities and things.

*

Another blonde, of a more golden hue with matching hotdog in hand, slathered over with as many toppings as was physically possible to put on said hotdog, came up alongside Carol as if she'd always intended to be walking in the same direction. "Hey Danvers." She offered simply, and took a good bite of her monstrous looking hotdog.

Bobbi Morse wore a simple blue T-shirt and jeans, sneakers all roughed up looking, with her hair hanging freely down her back. "Long time no see." She offered lightly, a smile on her face as she adjusted her grip on a napkin.

*

Carol grins a little, "Hey Morse." She returns that greeting, giving Bobbi a wry look, "Well, yeah, administrative leave does that, I guess." Since, well, Carol was pretty much held responsible for the whole Bucky fiasco that happened.

Carol then continues, "So how's life been in the office? I've been trying to find things to do to pass the time." Mainly by joining the Avengers, which probably made the home office blink a little bit.

*

A shrug and Bobbi filled the space with another bite of her hotdog. "Eh, well, slow. I got bored enough to find things to pass the time as well." A playful smirk that said very clearly she'd been up to her usual antics of biology and spy craft. She too had joined the Avengers if only keeping to the fringes. Her joining was clearly a 'Shield is watching', but Bobbi had never let that stop her from being friendly at least.

"Been keeping an eye on the Spiders we've got nested out in Central Park. Unfortunately beyond shutting down the area there's little I've been able to do to monitor the situation. I still can't get a good test on the remains. They turn to dust." She sighed and made a face.

*

Carol frowns, "Haven't been tracking that too much. Been a bit busy with getting Kai out of the Underworld." She shakes her head a bit, "That, was a weird adventure and a half, but on the bright side, hanging out with Thor and getting outfitted with a suit of armor is pretty cool." Yup, that's Carol, honorary Shield-Maiden of Asgard.

*

A slow smile pulled at her lips, "Damn girl, I've seen the documents we have on that guy. When I say eye candy, he's the cake. A big beefy cake." She whistled and took another bite of her hotdog. "Good for you on getting a sample of that armor. I know the guys downstairs have been dying to see how well it can stand up to bullets and the assorted other weapons they have down there." She grinned.

"But yeah, could use you the next time we try to clear the area in there. It's contained, but they're difficult to hold onto. Crystalline spiders, small, medium and as large as cars. I can take out the smaller ones with my pistol, but that's about it. We had the two 'In-training' boys, Teddy and Billy, have to help clear some when there was a few in the city."

*

Carol snickers, "I don't think it's that great, but then again, I'm pretty tough as it is. And you can look at it, but you aren't scrapping it." She smiles wryly, "He's pretty beefy, this is true. I think that sorceress with him would turn me into a frog if I made a move, though." She nods, "And yeah, you know I can help out with those things Bobbi. Just been a little crazy with everything going on. On the bright side, Kai is back." She neglects to mention Bucky actually being alive, though.

*

Bobbi had no idea who Kai was, but didn't particularly seem to question it. She shrugged lightly, "I won't scrap it. I'm not into metals or metallurgy. So that's easy." She grinned again, and finished off her hotdog, clapping her hands clean on her jeans and tossing the napkins into a trash can.

"Sorceress? Yeah Sofia has a record on her. Better to stay clear of her, she sounds batshit." She shrugged and settled for stretching her arms above her head as she yawned.

"Whenever you got time for it, don't rush it. We've been keeping an eye on it. It seems something tore up the park around one of the nests. We got reports on a destroyed car, city sewer pipes being torn up and a shit ton of property damage. Doesn't fit the bill for our spiders."

*

Carol hmms a bit, "Yeah, that sounds a little off. Unless there's a lot bigger spider that we haven't seen yet or something." She nods, "She did pretty well there, but yeah, between her and everyone else there, it was a little… eclectic." She finishes her own dog at that, then throws away her napkin as well. "But yeah, when you need me, let me know, I'll be there."

*

Bobbi nodded, and shot Carol another easy grin. The blonde it would seem was in a good mood, "I've been chomping at the bit to get another overseas assignment, or something more meaty than watch duty here in New York. So I got saddled with playing handler for some new assets. It sucks, I'm bored and there's no good looking men for me to horse around with on the mats these days."

"Such is life."

*

Carol hmms, "Yeah, well, I think the office is pretty much content to just have me on indefinite whatever-this-is thanks to all that's happened." She makes a bit of a face, "I should probably just resign at this point, but that just feels like quitting. I don't know… it's all gotten political now." She sighs a bit, shaking her head as she's not quite sure how to get out of this situation.

*

Somehow, Bobbi had managed to pull out a bag of chocolate covered almonds from her pocket and was now happily snacking on them. "Eh. Everything is political from where I stand. Better to stick to what I know will serve the greater good and all that jazz. After all, good needs someone to get their hands dirty so everyone else can sleep at night." She murmured and popped an almond into her mouth.

"You know that quitting only means that you don't get paid for all the work you do. Besides, Danvers, you know your leaving will result in a whole lotta mess."

*

Carol smiles wryly, "Yeah, I suppose so. Eventually they gotta come to their senses. Or, more likely, Doctor Doom will seize the HQ and they'll cry out to me to come save their butts." She smirks over at Bobbi, "He's honestly a bit of a lightweight, and he wouldn't know what a healthy weight is for a woman if it punched him in the face." With that, she chuckles under her breath.

*

Bobbi shot Carol a dry look, "I read the files that we have on the guy, he sounds like a real nutjob. And also, hey, I still totally visit HQ from time to time. I don't mind you comin' in and savin' my butt from time to time, but you'll find me hard pressed to cry out on anything Danvers." She teased lightly, a quirk of her lips following.

"Also, pretty sure you'll be happy to be that woman to punch him in the face and prove him wrong on healthy weight."

*

Carol chuckles, "Is it so wrong that the jerk trying to take over the world didn't bother me nearly as much as the fact he called me fat. Repeatedly?" She grins, "Fortunately, Cap was there, so Doom was able to keep breathing." Her nose wrinkles up a bit, as she looks down at herself. She's definitely not overweight. But now we know what villain to blame for unrealistic body expectations in the media going forward…

*

Bobbi's eyebrows lurched upwards, "He did not! That asshole! If Cap was a real boy scout, he should not have interrupted a lady and let you finish murdering him." The blonde shook her head and shoved the rest of her snack back into her jeans pocket. "Seriously, power hungry guys are a dime a dozen. Rude ones that can't even appreciate a woman that's in shape?" She tsk'ed and shook her head.

"He must only see the starving peasant women in his country and think that that is how women need to look. Skeletal."

*

Carol Danvers shakes her head, "Yeah, I know. I don't mind fighting criminals and such, it's part of the job… but come on, don't be a jerk, that's all I ask." She chuckles, "But now I'm sure he's got a lot of other problems. Which is fine by me."

*

"Asshole likely can't even get laid." Bobbi offered up helpfully, "I mean seriously. If that was his idea of flirting with the enemy, he needs new lines." She shoved a hand into her pocket as they continued to walk along. That same relaxed slouch that was utterly practiced in her frame. Even though her blue eyed gaze was assuredly, lazily, scanning the crowd a head. Once a spy, always a spy.

"I bet it's actually the first time he's met a woman that he didn't have to pay for."

*

Carol was also scanning the crowd, but far more casually, as she snickers at Bobbi, "Yeah, I'm sure you're right. Though honestly, men are just jerks. Believe me, I had the misfortune to date Tony Stark for a while. And then I found out he's a lying jerk, so that made me feel better." She wrinkles her nose at the memory.

*

Bobbi threw back her head and laughed, "Damn girl, you're the second of Tony's ex's that I've met. I roomed with Pepper for a while. Hell. The guy still hires red haired secretaries. I think he's holding a pretty bad hang on over the fact that she got away and to a decent job." She grinned again, shaking her head.

"Ran into him at the bar before he figured out what a bad idea it was to hit on me, he tried the usual and then very, very quickly got the idea that a man needs to watch his hands if he wants to keep them."

"He's not bad to look at, but damn he's an ass."

*

Carol sighs, "Well, it was all Peggy's idea. Since she's his honorary aunt, or something. So she set us up. And well, he wasn't that bad, and then he dumped me, allegedly to focus on his work. But then I found out he told Pepper that he wanted to get back together with her. Apparently he didn't realize that Pepper and I were friends." She smirks a bit, "Which made pretty clear just the sheer level of asshole that he was."
