25 Times the Cast of 'Agent Carter' Season 2 Were Awesome  
Everything is awesome.

There was an episode of House where House had to pretend to be British for a phone call and hearing Hugh Laurie do a slightly exaggerated version of his real accent was pretty awesome.

I remember that one, I think. First season? Earlier seasons, anyway. I didn't see the later ones.

I should fold the Howard pretending to be British idea into that idea I had about Steve and Howard having to hide together during the war and being really, really terrible at disguising themselves while Peggy facepalms in all directions.


I can also see Haddie bobbing her head, desperately trying to keep in time.


It's funny you should say this! Because I have a headcanon that daemons are generally at least decent at dancing, because music is something you can feel in your soul, even if you can't sometimes express it as well on the outside. Unless you're completely tone deaf with a pathological inability to discern a rhythm or absolutely hate music in all forms, I feel like daemons would be better at counting music than their humans because they feel it more.

Which is why my headcanon is that Issie sometimes tries to get Steve to dance with her, but he's like 'no, I'm good, thanks' while she boogies by herself. And that when Tony is listening to music while he's working, Mim often just stops to hardcore head bang for awhile.

Yes. Yes, you absolutely should. I have this mental image of the Howling Commandos watching the whole thing unfold from the sidelines and being super amused.

Ah, interesting! I just always had in mind that daemons might be more prone to expressing more enthusiastically their appreciation or horror of music than their humans. Like, someone might wince a little at a song they don't enjoy but their daemon will be flopping over and moaning.

Hee! I bet Howard in the field would be a nightmare. He'd be so totally not on board with grass and trees, and not having a bed to sleep in.

Howard: I'm just saying, I can pay for us to stay in a hotel. All of us!
Peggy: We are in enemy territory, shall we just pop up to the desk and say hello?
Howard: I could be discreet.
Peggy: And the part where there's a bounty on your head?
Howard: I could wear a hat.
Steve: Maybe if you shaved your mustache...
Howard: Hey, let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Haha! I can absolutely see Mim doing this for songs she doesn't like.

"This is OLD PEOPLE MUSIC! God! My ears are bleeding!"

Issie: But I like this song.
Mim: *death throes*

Hee!! I can picture Dominic Cooper making the acting choice to protectively cover his mustache as he delivers that line.

Issie: But I like this song.
Mim: *death throes*


Haha! In general I like the notion of daemons being more expressive about their true feelings than their humans. I have images of Winnie grumpily forcing down the broccoli she can't stand to eat while Cam in elephant form keeps throwing himself on the ground in agony.

Winnie: But I ate one already!
Bucky: You have to finish them all.
Winnie: They're gross! *chews unhappily*
Cam: *flop!* I'M DYING!!
Shess: No, you're not. Broccoli's good for you.
Cam: *flop again* IT BURNS!!

Ha! Oh man, now I want to write this. I've never done anything set during the War. It could be fun.


Shess: No, you're not. Broccoli's good for you.
Cam: *flop again* IT BURNS!!


I can so picture him slamming his trunk into the ground in agony. I'd like to think that as daemons get older and settled, they manage to hide their reactions a little better, but it's still kind of obvious what's going on.

JJ: Wow, this is really great...food, Mom.
Betti: *pasted smile on face, disgruntled, frantic tail wags*
Steve: Yeah, I really like the...oregano?
Issie: *hides under a chair*
Nora: It's a new recipe. I won't make it again.
Tyr: *buries himself in her hair*

I was having fluffy Hallowe'en thoughts for this verse the other day. Bucky (or Joan) and Nora taking JJ and Winnie out trick-or-treating, with Winnie armed with Sherlock's Algorithm For Maximum Candy Haul, and Steve at home answering the door, getting tons of compliments on his Captain America costume.

Steve: I'm not even in uniform.

Then a trip to the Tower, where Tony has bought half the candy in New York for them, and Thor has made some vetrnætr treats.

"I could not find Grey Elm Root on Midgard, so I have used anise instead."

Steve: I'm not even in uniform.

I can just see Tony delighting in this bit of info.

Tony: You sweat America, Rogers. Your skin just glows with USA! USA! USA!

I smile a lot at the image of Sherlock actually sitting down with a sheet of data about the neighborhood and working out an algorithm for maximum candy haul and looking super serious about it. I also smile a lot at the image of him and Tony sitting at a table arguing while shoving papers at each other with different algorithms on them.

Tony: It's about quality not quantity, Holmes! My math gets them the premium candy. We're talking hipster artisan chocolate bars. Not this Snickers crap.

Sherlock: Winnifred intends to trade items in her bounty with the other children. For this she needs the highest number of candies to maximize variability in order to successfully-

Tony: Do you have any idea how many store brand milk duds she's going to be able to get with one handmade salted caramel from Park Slope?

Winnie: (to Joan) How much longer until we can go?

Joan: Let's just go now. They might be awhile.

Sherlock & Tony: *scribbles aggressively on each others papers*

Hahaha! In the daemon verse of this, Mim would be biting Sid's tail and Sid would be throwing the nuts she's shelled while Sherlock was doing his candy calculations at her.

Here's Betti in her costume.

Betti: I'm an archaeologist.
Sid: Do archaeologists wear bow ties?
Betti: I do.
Sid: I believe you've created a false syllogism, there, Bertrande.
Betti: No, I'm an archaeologist, not a silly-gism.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on October 26th, 2015 01:38 am (UTC)
Aww! I love little Betti with the one ear down!

I imagine one year when Winnie and Cam are a little older, Cam looks like his regular animal self and Winnie is wearing her regular clothes.

Sid: Are you and Winnifred not partaking in a costume this year, Casimir?
Cam: Winnie and I are going as detectives. And we look normal because we're on a stakeout.
Sid: ...That's actually a very accurate costume. Well done.
Cam: Winnie has a magnifying glass in her pocket. And I have a hat for later.
Sid: *sighs*

Hee! I imagine JJ and Betti go as Captain America and Issie at least one year, when they're really little. I also like the idea of daemons putting on costumes for Hallowe'en, as part of the experience. Because you can change all the time, so it's not really exciting to just be a matching daemon to your human's costume, but it's kind of fun to dress up and pretend to be a human for a night.

I also imagine Tony campaigns for JJ and/or Winnie to go as Iron Man every year.

Tony: I can make you the most badass tiny armor, I'm not even lying.

Speaking of tiny armor, I saw this, and could totally picture Mim building that for Lev.

Mim: I did it all myself!
Lev: What am I going to do with this?
Mim: Um, be awesome in it, obviously. The lasers really work.
Lev: I don't need working lasers. Pepper sits at a desk all day.
Mim: You can zap lame memos and boring faxes.
Lev: It's ridiculous.
Mim: Happy Anniversary!
