Lazzy’s eyes sparkled as she cradled the packages to her chest. Looking at the woman with an awed look she stated, “I love you.”
The other three gave off various laughs. Caps was silent and light, mostly just air leaving his nose faster and his shoulders giving a small jump. Whale gave a loud boastious laugh, body quaking as he held his sides. Malice chuckled with a hand hiding his face, grinning as his rib cage heaved with his laughter.
"Just be sure to remember you said that when they end up being stale. You know, maybe. I don’t know that they’re stale, but that possibility exists."
The laughter from the rest of them sparked a soft laugh from Kate. As far as random people at the door went, this group was probably the best case scenario that she could run into in New York.
So that whole thing about Madam Masque having a pretty big price on your head is a rumour then? Or do you just not count that as a “level of deep”? I mean, what on earth did you do to get Madam Masque on your bad side?
Well… there are a lot of reasons, but a good place to start would be the fact that I tied her up in a closet, stole her clothes and walked around Madripoor as her for a while… Just a guess.
Hawkeye, huh? Ya’ share that with Barton Sr. or somethin’?
Congrats! You’re one of the first people to get that right on the first try without first assuming sidekick!
“Yea, and I’m next in line ta be the Pope. I ain’t even Catholic. But, I could pull off them robes, though.” Barney looked up at his moving hands that were pretending to caress an invisible Pope’s hat. He then loudly sucked on his teeth after what she said. “Love is treacherous snake, Bishop. It slithers past our defenses and coils itself around our heart, making it impossible to breathe around the one we’ve fallen for. And when that person leaves us we’re left with nothin’ but a shriveled mockery of what once was the heart. Just wait, she’ll be weak in the knees. My horoscope says this is the year I get a girlfriend. Respect the horoscope. Damn, that was good. Ya got a pen?”
"O…kay then. Feel better now? Got that out of your system? I, for one, am thrilled that I didn’t stop you halfway through that like I really wanted to do. I’m proud of myself for hearing out that nice little General Hospital monologue just so I can see your face when I drop this little truth bomb on you.” Kate’s expression quickly flipped to a smug, amused smirk. “Tell her all that. I beg you. Pleasetell her all that. I promise you the only person who will be weak in the knees is you when she kicks yours out from under you. I said you weren’t hear type, and I meant it. Your little horoscope dream girl, who you’ve totally never met, let me add, isn’t going to be interested because she’s not into guys.”
Bobbi nodded grabbing her laptop off the table to order online, it was easier in this case than calling them.
"What’cha want on it?" she questioned tossing her feet up on the coffee table.
"That explains why I haven’t seen him in about a week. Sorry he left you behind. If he get’s hurt then it’s his own fault he didn’t bring back up."
she fully believes that Kate is more capable of handling herself better than Clint sometimes.
"What’s in the bag? Games?" She looked hopeful.
As Kate slumped down into the chair, she pulled her knees up to her chest, following Bobbi’s suggestion to make herself comfortable.
"I have yet to meet a pizza I don’t like, so order whatever you like. Unless what you like is pineapple or deep dish. Neither of those are pizza. That’s fruit salad and casserole pretending they’re pizza."
The archer glanced down at the bag, contemplating for a short second before looking back up at Bobbi enthusiastically.
"Something like that! We can look at it when we’re waiting for the pizza to get delivered, though."
Aja's Kate or Wu's Kate?
((All the Kate!
Ermmm… I don’t have a solid answer to that. I really love different artists for different situations when I’m writing her so I’m not 100% partial to any single artist. I love Wu for her expressions she gives Kate and she’s my go to when I’m looking for a really vibrant expression. Those moments where just a single look from Kate is all you need to know what she’s thinking. That’s when Wu’s Kate really shines.
I love Aja’s Kate for the attitude he brings to her. She’s a HBIC and Aja’s art really lets that shine. She’s confident and in control and I love that you really see that in Aja’s art.
But then you have the artists from prior to Marvel now, and I’m 100% not one to discount those that were drawing her during the first YA run and the other issues she appeared in. I think Cheung and a lot of other artists that drew her during this time show a real depth to her that does still resonate with her character today, which is why I do try to mix in a lot of older art in my replies.))
What's your opinion on the whole thing about Kate and Kazi that happened in Hawkeye #10?
((Oh! Oh! Hello anon! Where did you come from? Sorry If this took me a while to respond. I had a night out with my mom last night.
Anyway, I’m not entirely sure exactly what you’re looking for here so I’ll just throw some meta at you. I know a lot of people see this instance as further proof that Kate’s attracted to older men (on top of canonically thinking Bucky’s hot). I wouldn’t necessarily say that. Kate’s at this party to get away from the things that are currently troubling here. She’s a twenty year old girl at this point looking for some release, and here comes this mysterious man, who considering who we know he is, we can assume carries himself with an awful lot of confidence, and from the way he’s drawn, looks pretty attractive. So what the hell, Kate flirts. She may not have been looking to go home with him, but where’s the harm in flirting?
Well then the tables turn on her and suddenly she no longer has the upper hand in the situation. This is a girl who is used to always having the upper hand in social situations. She’s damn good with her words and god damn it she gets her way with them. Always. She counts on it. So this man flipping the tables on her? That’s a challenge. One that she is determined to come out on top on. So we see <kiss> “Hawkeye out!” <cue super swag Kate exit stage right> and you can be damn sure she’s confident she’s just finished with that upper hand and is pretty damn pleased with herself.
So idk… that may not at all be the opinion you were looking for, but that was how I read and interpreted the situation. Mind you, there’s a lot to be read into about Kate’s dad’s involvement with Kazi that I didn’t even touch and there’s a lot to be interpreted about what Kazi’s motives were in approaching her that I didn’t touch here, but this is what I’ve got from Kate’s perspective.))
