Darcy had sent the email to May, and just long enough for Darcy to finish dinner and get home to put her feet up, May sent a text back: 'Bring him in.'

Darcy didn't need to ask who the He May was talking about was, so with only the faintest of grumbles, Darcy got dressed for work again and then climbed up to the rooftop.

Well.. he DID say to get to a roof and shout, right?

"THOR?" .."God, I feel like a maroon," Darcy mutters to herself as she waits for Big Tall and Blonde to show up. When he did, Darcy smiled up at him, and with hands in her pockets she tells the Thunderer that May's contacted her and was to meet with him. As amiable as Thor is, he agrees easily and the two make their way to the Triskelion. Darcy uses her ID Badge to get into the conference room where May will want to talk things over with the Norse God.

"Ya want some coffee, Sparky?" Darcy asks of Thor as they make their way into the conference room.

~

Melinda May was already waiting for Lewis and 'Mr. Thunderpants Thor Sparkybutt', though not in the pre-arranged conference room. She's watching via the surveillance camera placed in one corner of the small room. She plans to give them a few minutes to settle in, and then will enter the conference room directly.

~

Thor does have something of a sense of humor, and he's clearly yanking on Darcy's chain in terms of 'contact'. Flying in with the aid of his hammer is one way to make an entrance, and believe it or not, it's used sparingly. As a result, Thor does consent to walking, to taking 'public transport' to get to where they need to go.

Upon entering the hallowed halls of the Triskellion, Thor looks about, a grudging nod coming, "Impressive." The offer of coffee isn't something to be refused, and upon entering the conference room, he acquiesces. "Yes." It doesn't keep him from looking around the room, looking up, at the walls. He's dressed rather mundanely; jeans, shirt, light jacket and well-worn cowboy boots. From his hip hangs a rune-encrusted large war hammer.

~

"Yup. I still can't believe I work here some days," Darcy replies warmly, working the coffee machine with practiced ease. Dead fish hat is taken off after the coffee's set to brew and it along with her mittens and jacket are set off to the side.

"So… any luck finding that guy you were looking for?" Darcy starts as an opening gambit.

~

Melinda May has had facial recognition running since the pair entered the building, and she can't help the faint frown when the only even vaguely close hit (only 72% probability) is a young man from Australia whose financials place him in Melbourne just a few minutes ago. She waits to hear the man's answer to Darcy's starting question before turning to head over to the conference room.

~

"Loki?" Thor shakes his head, and he looks a bit disappointed in it all. "No." He wanders slowly towards the pot and watches as it makes the coffee, momentarily entranced by the simplicity of design. "I will find him, however." The booming voice sounds a note of certainty. "No matter, however. My finding him may have nothing to do with the matter at hand. I pray it does not."

~

Darcy frowns sympathetically with Thor as he mentions not being able to find the guy that Selvig said was his brother.

"I'm sure you'll find him," she says, trying to sound chipper as she hunts the cupboards for The Biggest (TM) coffee mug there is to be had here. What she finds is sizable and would look almost normal in Thor's hands. Well, she tried? She sets the mug down and moves for the creamer and sugar.

"How do you take it? Straight up? Little bit of cream and sugar? Or sweet enough to rot your teeth?"

~

Melinda May knows the Intel agents will be doing searches on everything they get, so she nods to them and leaves the surveillance area and walks briskly toward the conference room. She pauses just outside the door then knocks before stepping inside.

~

Wait… there are different ways to 'take' coffee? The large mug almost looks large enough, but it will do for the moment. Thor didn't bring any flagons from Asgard, so it'll have to do. He reaches for the mug but pauses before, "Make it sweet." There's the request.

The entrance of Melinda May brings Thor around, and as he straightens, he may look a great deal taller than he actually is. He looks questioningly at first, but he recovers, and what follows is simply, "Greetings." With it, however, is a bass tone that almost sounds like a rumble of thunder off in the distance.

~

"Just like you, Big Guy," Darcy quips happily, pulling down a much more 'normal' mug for herself, one that reads 'Drink Before You Think'. Into each, Darcy pours enough sugar to cover the bottom about just under a quarter of the way, and then, now that the coffee is done, she fills each one three fourths full before stirring vigorously.

"Oh. Hi! Agent May: Thor, Son of Odin and All Around Electric Kinda Guy. Thor: Agent May, my S.O. I mentioned her before? She wanted to talk to you about …stuff…" because Darcy hasn't already. HONEST! Focus on the halo, ladies and gentlemen!

Darcy turns back to the coffee where she fills the cups the rest of the way with creamer. Giant mug ready, Darcy holds it out to Thor needing both hands to do so.

~

Melinda May nods to Thor at his greeting, then moves to sit at the conference table, folding her hands together on the surface of the table and managing to NOT lean forward. "Your Highness." Yes, she did a VERY quick overview of Norse mythology when Darcy's email came in. The name Thor had been flagged, and she's willing to give the man a momentary benefit of the doubt, considering all the WEIRD she's seen the past few weeks. "Thank you for agreeing to speak with me."

~

The introduction given by Darcy gains a soft chuckle, a genuinely fond one. Again, very much sounding like a parent has heard something amusing from a loved child. "Agent May. Well met." He takes the coffee and in his paws, the mug still looks smaller than it should. It will suffice, however. "You look to me a warrior. And as Midgard calls for aid, I am bound to answer her calls."

~

Smiling at the chuckle, Darcy points to her coffee mug as she looks to May: "Want some?" If getting the affirmative, Darcy'll make a cup for May the way she's learned May usually takes it. If not, Darcy nods and sips her coffee. Her green eyes track to follow the speakers but otherwise she stays quiet for now.

~

Melinda May does not drink coffee. She HATES coffee. Lewis ought to know this by now. She shakes her head no to Darcy, then returns her attention to Thor. "I see. And what is going on that Midgard is asking for your aid?" Yup. Totally humoring the guy. Hey, if it gets intel from him, it's worth the annoyance.

~

Thor takes a tentative sip of the newly created concoction, and it appears as if it passes his cursory inspection. Another swallow, and somewhere along the line, it's finished only just after starting. "There was an attack on your three cities. Coordinated attacks, according to your news." Metropolis. New York. Gotham. "I am offering my aid." Though, the chances are good that he'd consider doing it alone, if not for Darcy's earlier words… sorcery?

~

What? No coffee? Wait… Was it TEA that May drinks? Darcy frowns as she silently puzzles. Her tongue pokes out from between her lips and her eyes roll toward the ceiling as she backtracks to the number of times she's seen May drink… okay, that wasn't coffee… nope, not that either… No, not then… GAH! Has she EVER drunk….? Lost in Thought Lewis.

~

"Your timing couldn't be better. I have some friends that would like to speak with you about that very same topic. They're trying to get the aid of several different … schools of thought to see if the source of the attacks can be located and stopped." May pulls a phone that Darcy would recognize as NOT SHIELD-issued, types something into it briefly, then puts it away again. "Would you be willing to coordinate with a group of individuals also working toward making sure this never happens again?"

~

Thor's smile lightens and shifts to something that makes him look rather boyish, in a god sort of way. "You have people working on it. I would offer my aid to them, Agent May." Why does it sound as if that is now her name 'Agent May'. All one word. "Midgard must be preserved and she must live in peace."

~

…no, that wasn't coffee either! Gah! You can't trust a person that doesn't drink COFFEE! It's unnatural! Coffee is freaking LIFE! Darcy, still lost in thought seems to be half arguing with herself at this point. And she reaches up to scratch at her hair.

~

Melinda May GREATLY prefers 'Agent May' to being called Melinda while on duty. Or worse. The C word. So she'll deal with it. "Agreed. Do you have a way for my contacts to get in touch with you to arrange a meeting place and time?" She glances over at Darcy, and her eyes narrow slightly. Supposed to be paying attention!

~

The light smile turns a touch mischievous, blue eyes gleaming. "Darcy knows how to get in touch with me." Thor is teasing, of course, but he can actually 'hear' it. "I will not make myself 'a stranger'." He must have heard the phrase somewhere and sounds as if he's trying it out in conversation.

~

Her name spoken brings Darcy's attention and she looks between the two with this wide eyed college student asked a question by the professor. Quick! What was the last thing you heard? Ummmm… Offering aid. Band Aid. Lame 80s.. 90s.. rockapalooza for charity? No. That can't be it. What else?! Different schools.. Well, there's.. umm… why are we talking about schools?

"No. Of course not. You're crashing at my place, right?" Darcy settles on the very very last thing that was said, because of Coffee!

~

Melinda May gives Darcy a hard look for about a second and a half before turning back to Thor. "Good. Then I'll have my contacts reach you through Lewis. But keep in mind, most of these people are not accustomed to working openly, and will likely be distrustful. Lewis, you're on chaperone duty for any meetups, and I want full reports back." She looks from Thor to Darcy and back. "Do not screw this up. We're not getting any second chances on this one."

~

"I am?" Thor's question makes it sound as if he was uncertain about this, but the confirmation has him giving something of an off-hand shrug. "Then that is where they shall find me."

The sound of clandestine contacts makes the god chuckle, the sound a rumble of thunder. "I will endeavor to keep to such a spirit, but I fear my brother is far better at that than I. Distrust is fine, as long as I can trust that they will do as they say. In turn, they can trust that I shall do exactly what it is I say. Beyond that, there is no need for concern. One trusts that an adder will be an adder and do that which adders do."

~

Chaperone? Aww… come on, May! Darcy starts to look pained but then glancing at Thor, grins. This is got to be more entertaining than counting paperclips, right?

"Ma'am, yes ma'am!" Darcy chirps with a very bad salute. And more coffee being drunk. Seriously! How can May NOT drink coffee? Wait.. adder… "Like, the snake?"

~

Melinda May simply nods and moves to stand. "Good. I don't have any details yet, but I know the meet is happening soon. So be ready." And with that, she moves to leave the conference room. Meeting over, apparently.

~

Thor watches as May leaves, the details will be forthcoming. That gives him a little bit of a chance to see if he can't find his brother. "Yes, Darcy. A snake. You have those, do you not? 30 feet long," and here, his hand 'measures' to about his shoulder, "Rises to about this height and spits fire and venom?"

Though now, with the meeting done, Thor looks as if he'll be excusing himself. "I will find you, Darcy. Your hospitality is appreciated."

~

"Yeah.. yeah. You.. uh, know where my building is…" Darcy stammers at the description of an adder. She's pretty sure they don't spit fire. …mostly… TO GOOGLE!
