Look at how far we've fallen, Danvers she thought to herself as she adjusted the collar on her new uniform. Not that there was anything wrong with flying a private plane - lots of people who left the Air Force did that - it was just that with powers like hers she should be saving the world and not shuttling Stark Industries employees around the country.

However, she needed money. Until she could get herself a really flexible and high-paying job (haha) or get herself an audition with the Avengers, Carol needed a way to pay for her apartment and food for her cat. So she might as well put some of her flight skills to work. And she figured that working at Stark Industries would give her a better chance of getting into Tony Stark's path. All she would need is five minutes to convince him that she should be suiting up with the rest of the Avengers.

But for now, she worked.

"Afternoon, Ms. Potts," she said as the CEO approached the jet.

Pepper had her nose buried in some cell phone correspondence at the moment--a risky endeavor considering the lack of mobility in her A-line skirt and stiletto heels. She seems to know where she is going, though, not wasting time and pacing frantically towards the jet against powerful winds.

The woman's voice snatched her attention away from the cell phone. She lifted the hand holding the cell and shielded her eyes from the wind, squinting to get a good look at who greeted her.

"Afternoon." She looked as though she was going to say more, but whatever it was, she was holding off until she was boarded. They'd have plenty of opportunity to chat while in the air, after all. "How late am I?"

"Excellent--thank you." She tacked on the gratitude in a hurry before she rushed on board, scurrying to her seat and promptly taking off her heels.

She sighed with relief as she wiggled her toes against the floor of the craft. She didn't get blitzed on the flight like the jet's previous passenger, so she figured a little shoelessness was forgivable.

She watched the entrance tiredly as she awaited Carol's reappearance.

Sorry, I was camping all weekend!

"Thank you--Carol, was it? Pepper's just fine." She reached for her briefcase and pulled out some files. "Ever been to Dallas? Quite the hopping city these days I hear."

Did she sound as awkward as she felt? Tony was so much better at schmoozing, she was really just good with the logistics.

She furrowed her brow, failing at reading the papers she'd pulled out, and giving up on pretending to read them before she even started. Looking up, she gave an apologetic smile. "I'm sorry, you're supposed to be piloting. Don't mind me."

"I'm surprised to be going there, honestly." She pulled out her cell phone and set it beside her. "Considering the oil money there, the fact they're paying any attention to some serious ecological alternatives for a change feels like I'm dreaming."

She nodded back to Carol, watching her quietly as she made her way towards the cockpit. Pepper didn't mind flying--take-off was always the worst part. She'd made a playlist of music to listen to for such things, but today she just didn't feel up to the same routine.

Instead, she fingered through several papers in her file, briefing herself yet again on the people she planned to run elbows with. She wasn't a bad networker, but oil tycoons and the one percent were far more Tony's realm than her own.
