⑰ To the future → Is it everything you've dreamed? Is it horrible? Whatever happens, you're here to witness what happens to you in the future. Either you take the place of your future self or you're just there to watch. Might cause some confusion if people start seeing double though...

RNG says 5,5, wrong number time! Sometime in IM3 timeline?

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-23 09:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[As a rule, Jarvis does not dial wrong numbers, but he has been working very hard lately, both assisting Mr. Stark with his construction of Iron Man armors for every conceivable occasion but also ensuring Mr. Stark does not work himself into an emergency room visit. As he will discover, this Darcy Lewis is not the minerals dealer he has been working with to acquire rare metals for Mr. Stark.]

Good morning, Ms. Lewis. If I could have a few moments of your time?
taser_warrior: (These are not the droids you are looking)

That works!

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-05-24 08:19 pm (UTC)(link)
[Darcy knew she shouldn’t have answered the unknown number on her phone. But she’s bored out of her mind transcribing Jane’s notes into something eligible, and it’s probably only a wrong number. Might as well be polite right? She starts slightly at the use of her name, face souring at the polite British tone. The only reason she doesn’t hang up immediately, is because occasionally Jane would hand off Darcy’s number if she was unavailable. She normally warned if she was expecting a call beforehand however.]

That depends. Are you selling me something? Or charging me by the minute?
britishbinary: (I'm listening)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-24 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[Strange reaction. Ms. Lewis is generally all business, with no interest in small talk with underlings. Jarvis finds her efficient attitude refreshing in a way. And there is something about her voice which seems different, but perhaps he has merely caught her in a more playful mood.]

Neither, I would think. In fact, I am rather hoping you will be able to sell me something.
taser_warrior: (what is going on)

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-05-24 09:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Sorry strange voice, but we don’t really sell things. Unless of course, you count the sweet sounds of science as a form of currency. [She knew scientist types had a tendency to be vague so she was giving this the benefit of the doubt and went to grab a pen and paper in case he had a message.]
britishbinary: (I am wracking my brain)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-24 09:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[Strange voice? That isn't correct in the least. Not only does Ms. Lewis know his voice perfectly well, he ought to have an entry in her phone, and all she does is sell things. He checks the call more closely and finds the number he has dialed does not match the number of the person he had intended to call. He sounds utterly bewildered when he speaks again.]

..oh. I am terribly sorry, I seem to have contacted...the wrong person. I do apologize for the inconvenience, Ms. Lewis. I hope I have not interrupted your work for Dr. Foster.
taser_warrior: (ugh)

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-05-24 09:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Wait what. She didn't recognize the voice but he certainly knew of Jane. Which not surprising, but Darcy's curiosity has a tendency to get in the way.] Who is this?
britishbinary: tony stark with touchscreen (touchscreen)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-24 10:03 pm (UTC)(link)
I am Mr. Stark's... [Personal assistant, butler, laboratory assistant, these were all acceptable alternatives, but Ms. Lewis is linked with Thor and Dr. Foster and is certainly privy to things that are out of the ordinary.] I assist Mr. Stark in the development and operation of the Iron Man armors and run Stark Tower in Manhattan as well as his private homes in Malibu and Dubai. My name is Jarvis.
taser_warrior: (smile)

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-05-24 10:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Jane had certainly filled her in on a few of Stark's goings on, well in between her calling him an arrogant jerk and such. She knew that on a few occasions Jane had mentioned Pepper Potts, and the name Jarvis did ring a few bells. she relaxes slightly.] Oh. Hello Jarvis, glad to know you aren't a telemarketer or tax collector. Did you need to leave a message for Dr.Foster? Or is this totally a coincidence?
britishbinary: (Facepalm)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-24 11:01 pm (UTC)(link)
The latter. It may amuse you to learn that there is a rare metals dealer who shares your name that I have done frequent business with in recent months. [It certainly amuses Jarvis if the laugh in his voice is any indication. He also sounds rather tired, if that is possible for a computer system.]

But as I have you here, how is Dr. Foster's research progressing, if I may ask?
taser_warrior: (smile)

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-05-25 01:16 am (UTC)(link)
So it was a coincidence, that’s good to know. As for Jane she’s…well we’ve halted research temporarily. [Jane had more or less blatantly ignored her equipment since they went from Tromso to London. But Darcy had hopes.]
She’s taking a break from everything for a while I think.
britishbinary: (Asking for additional information)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-25 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
Halted research? Dr. Foster? [That doesn't sound encouraging. In fact, from everything Jarvis knows of Dr. Foster and her research, it sounds quite unusual. And Darcy sounds worried, though she is making a valiant effort to cover it.]

Is everything all right, Ms. Lewis?
taser_warrior: (ugh)

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-05-25 12:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh no! She's fine, just taking a sabbatical I guess. [ Darcy is sort of telling the truth, but it sounds far nicer than outright saying that Jane reached a point of frustration, and sadness towards Thor's disappearance that had reached a breaking point when they saw footage of him in the New York attacks.]

She's still using her science brain, but she's halted some of the larger projects for the moment.
britishbinary: (You what?)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-25 05:43 pm (UTC)(link)
I see. I confess, I am somewhat surprised. Her most recent papers have indicated mounting excitement as she works toward a potential breakthrough.

[Not necessarily published papers. Jarvis is not above reading papers currently in the process of being written, especially if they provide a welcome distraction to Mr. Stark's growing obsession with creating the perfect armor.]
taser_warrior: (subtle small talk)

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-05-26 01:43 am (UTC)(link)
Eh you know scientific people, one minute its a breakthrough and the next it's gathering dust on a shelf. [Jane's recent lack of inspiration was fueled by a rather dangerous combination of apathy, frustration, and disappointment.]
britishbinary: thoughtful closeup (considering)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-26 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
Y-es... [Jarvis runs a brief inventory. 28 completed sets of Armor. 7 in the machining phase. 3 in testing. Well, the completed armors could be considered to be gathering dust now.] I do know what you mean. If there is any assistance I can provide, I am at your service, madam.
taser_warrior: (please hold your applause)

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-05-30 02:12 am (UTC)(link)
Honestly? I may take you up on the offer of help someday. [ As nice as it was that's Jane had made most of her equipment by hand and the very liberal love of duct tape sometimes the amount of hours Darcy spent hunting down facts, attending local college lectures(not that she'd had much of a chance to do so in New Mexico), and sifting through the chicken scratch of a genius was a bit exhausting. She was so going to hire an intern. The intern of an intern.]
Might be nice to have someone who make a bit more sense of this then I can.
britishbinary: (Exasperated)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-05-30 04:06 pm (UTC)(link)
I take it this is not entirely your area of expertise. [Dr. Foster's field is hardly anyone's area of expertise. Given how new her discoveries are, it's barely Dr. Foster's area of expertise.

He checks on the status of his current projects, and on Mr. Stark, and decides he could spare a bit of time.]
In truth, I would appreciate the distraction. Mr. Stark is rather...single-minded, at the moment.
taser_warrior: (These are not the droids you are looking)

[personal profile] taser_warrior 2015-06-01 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I can keep up well enough for someone whose field of study isn't even in Dr.Fosters Ballpark but uh, might be nice to have someone who actually understands all of these equations.
[Really Darcy was smart but in comparison to most people Jane Foster is above and beyond on the best of days; and sometimes-particularly times when she can't outright help Darcy feels like she's floundering.]
I've been thinking of hiring an intern. Can interns do that? Start a chain of no pay?
britishbinary: (Talks with his hands)

[personal profile] britishbinary 2015-06-01 03:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Perhaps you could consider bringing in a volunteer. They are often quite unexpectedly dedicated. And, of course, they do not require pay. Just the opportunity to work directly with Dr. Foster's research would be payment enough.

[It isn't much, but it might help her in the short term.]
