nine ✴ video, backdated to yesterday morning

[ look out, city. ms. marvel just got her determined groove back and it shows. also, this is all public because lol there is no avengers filter set up ]

Alright, Avengers, listen up. We've got one of our own locked up, one Skrull in custody, and frankly it's high time we got our shit together and gave the civilians something other than paranoia and violence to look to.

Beast, Spider-Man. I need you two in the lab. Iron Man says all the equipment should still be in there from when you were working earlier. I don't care if you have other priorities, right now I'm saying the Skrulls take precedence. If you want me to write you a sick note or threaten your boss so you can get a few days off, I will. I'll also make sure we've got coffee, food, and whatever else you need delivered down there, just get me some progress on that detector.

The rest of you get yourselves over to the mansion or reply to this privately so I can tell you what we need to do. If there's any other heroes or civilians that aren't Avengers, would like to help, and would be willing to go through a number of possibly invasive processes to check to make sure you're not a Skrull... well. We'll take it on a case by case basis.

[ there's a pause, and then carol smirks. ]

Oh, and to all the Skrulls who are undoubtedly watching this? You better batten down your hatches, sweethearts. 'Cause we're going to kick your pathetic, green asses and get back everyone you replaced.

Carol, I've been in the lab. Every moment I can spare! We've hit a brick wall where even the detectors that by all means should work haven't been.

Granted, with a live specimen, we may be able to do further tests, I suppose.

Yes, I was afraid that might be the case. Unless I happen to just sit in the holding block and run each from onsite.

So, we'd rather they think we've been sitting on our hands all this time for some momentary assurance?

But it's still a false hope. You're promising things we can't provide when we've already been attempting to. It adds more expectation to the continued failure.

I don't know, it's just a lot of pressure!
professorlionface: (What was I thinking?)

Well, I'm not convinced that they'll see it that way, either. We'll all come out of this looking rather ineffective, I'm afraid. We can do our best, at least, but I'm beginning to strongly suspect that won't be enough!

Tony's locked up and Bobbi's coming apart at the seams. What do we have in our corner, exactly, other than your confidence?
professorlionface: (Um.)

Well, what do you have so far?

Nothing you trust me enough to disclose, you mean?

[He holds his fingers up, pinching the air to describe a very small amount.]

Marginally.

Do you suspect anyone on our team?
professorlionface: (Hmm?)

And me? [Because it would break his heart if you suspected him, bro.]

No, just a little more useless than usual.

Do you think there's something in that? Whether this is just my inadequacy, or if we're being actively sabotaged?

[Hank doesn't even want to suspect anyone :c]

But with how many times I've been over this device, I'm not really sure how it could be sabotaged, unless they got something in my brain while in the process!

Well, it would really explain certain complications if it were true. With what a roaring success I've been, perhaps you should be suspicious of me!
professorlionface: (Long days only get longer it seems.)

[He takes a deep breath, and then is quiet for a few moment.]

You're right.

I'm sorry.
