I was your butch and you were touched  
WHO: The Avengers and guests
WHERE: Avengers Mansion
WHEN: Thursday, all day!
WARNINGS: Um.
SUMMARY: Avengers Thanksgiving!
FORMAT: Up to you!  Tag in and have fun!

[There's delicious barbecued turkey, mashed potatoes, some sort of cranberry concoction, tacos, guacamole, margaritas, and good friends! What more could a person ask for on such a lovely holiday?

Here's hoping Clint doesn't burn the mansion down!]
 
 
 
Bobbi Morse || Mockingbird: omigod what
Cooking!

[There's so much cooking to do! Someone has to man the BBQ and someone has to make the guacamole...]
Bobbi Morse || Mockingbird: biggest grin ever
Open!
mockingbirdie on November 24th, 2011 03:22 am (UTC)
[What's Thanksgiving without some homemade guacamole? Bobbi's dressed very casually, lovingly preparing her (self-proclaimed) world famous guacamole, and also snacking on some corn chips. Because Thanksgiving is about snacking all day long.]
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: What was I thinking?bluepurrymuffin on November 24th, 2011 07:02 am (UTC)
[Hank bursts in wearing the ugliest sweater and a pair of rolled-up khakis, carrying a few dishes with him]

Sorry I'm late! I was a little distracted by other affairs.

How's the turkey coming?
Bobbi Morse || Mockingbird: workin' the ponytailmockingbirdie on November 25th, 2011 02:47 am (UTC)
[Bobbi looks up, giving Hank an approving grin.]

Hey, you! You're not late at all!

[She quickly wipes off her hands with a towel and offers to help Hank with the dishes.]

You'll have to ask our executive chef about the state of his turkeys. He's in charge of that aspect of the affair.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Most excellent! :3bluepurrymuffin on November 25th, 2011 03:13 pm (UTC)
Traffic was murder with the parade. Almost literally, in fact!

[He hands her a dish or two, then juggles the others to the counter. After setting them down, he goes to the cupboard to get his hairnet and gloves.]

Executive chef? Should I be worried?

( Clint is in charge of the turkey, which may or may not be a good idea. In any case, he's chilling by the barbecue just waiting to be bothered or to set something on fire. )
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I don't understand.bluepurrymuffin on November 24th, 2011 09:12 pm (UTC)
[Hank wanders out to do that bothering as soon as he hears about it. Folding one arm and burying his cheek in the other, he stands there for several moments, blinking.]

...Well, I suppose it can't be an Avengers party without a barbecue.

Nope, no it can't.

( Clint is pretty relaxed about the whole thing, and it looks as though there are several experimental methods going on, here. )

You'll love it, trust me.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I'll have to think about this.bluepurrymuffin on November 24th, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
[Hank just cringes the more he watches.]

I certainly hope you're right!

At least we know the pies will come out alright. [He checks his watch. Yeah, they still need a bit more time.]

Calvin: stupendous
Re: open;
more_surreal on November 25th, 2011 12:38 am (UTC)
Once he's done being impressed by the mansion, Calvin is (literally) hovering over the grill. They're really going to grill a turkey, and that's the perfect blend of inventive and downright stupid to interest someone his age. He's watching the cooking so he can see this bold experiment for himself. If it turns out all right, later he'll taste it for himself too!

"Cooking a Thanksgiving turkey just like a hamburger," he says. "It's so simple! Why hasn't anyone thought of it before?"

Pietro Maximoff † Quicksilver: .crossedoncemercurial on November 25th, 2011 12:58 am (UTC)
After following Calvin around the mansion (not quite at superspeed, but close enough because well, children) Pietro is quite content to keep an eye on the little guy as he peers over the grill. After all, someone has to keep track of the child and make sure Barton doesn't accidentally do something stupid and kill him.

"Careful, now. Angelica would never forgive me if you were to fall in."

"I'm pretty sure someone's thought of it." Clint can't help but grin at Calvin, since it's always nice to have an audience that appreciates one's ideas. At Pietro, though, he only pulls a face.

"You really think I'd let that happen?"

Calvin: ewmore_surreal on November 25th, 2011 12:52 am (UTC)
[Calvin is pushing around his vegetables on his plate, forming his mashed potatoes into a sculpted pillar, and generally showing signs of having too much energy for a peaceful Thanksgiving dinner.]

Hey Angelica, superheroes like the Avengers are the best at all kinds of fights, right? Does that include food fights?

[This line of questioning cannot possibly end well]

Calvin: dartmore_surreal on November 26th, 2011 12:10 am (UTC)
Oh. I wasn't expecting that.

[Frown. Thinking.]

So does that mean if a food fight started unexpectedly, you'd all lose?

[Calvin eyes his peas. Then his spoon. Then the people he's sitting nearest.]

[Or in Calvin's case wandering around the Avengers Mansion looking for opportunities to get into trouble. Being in a mansion is exciting, but being in a superhero headquarters mansion? He's just about ready to bounce off the walls as he runs from room to room, trying to take everything in. Hopefully he won't find the armoury.]
