Wedding Meme: Peggy and Sousa Edition  
...because I'm just going to go ahead and assume they got married.



Who proposed? Daniel
How did they propose? When Daniel decided he wanted to propose, he used a business trip as an excuse to swing by and speak to Peggy’s parents about it, in London. He’d never met them, so it was something of an interesting visit of, ‘hello, I’m that guy that Peggy keeps talking about, and by the way, I’m going to marry her’. By the end of his second cup of tea, he’d won them over and left with their approval.

Back home, he took Angie and Jarvis with him to help pick out the ring; Angie to make sure Peggy would like it and Jarvis to use his considerable jewellery knowledge to make sure the quality and price were okay. They promptly took over the search, leaving Daniel trailing in their wake.


Jarvis: I don’t know. The stone isn’t well-protected, and Miss Carter’s work involves her, erm, hands. You wouldn’t want it to get caught on anything.
Angie: Yeah, but think how much it would hurt to get punched in the face with that thing.
Jarvis: That’s an excellent point, Miss Martinelli. Those sorts of rings do leave a mark. *distant look of pain*


In the end, Daniel found one he liked on sight. Angie approved it wholeheartedly, with a simple ‘yep!’. Jarvis demanded either the price be lowered or the stone be replaced with something comparable to it. The stone was replaced, and Daniel had a ring. Now he just needed a proposal.

It turns out trying to propose to Peggy Carter is really hard. She just kept not cooperating with anything he’d set up. It didn’t help there was a big case going on at the time, and he would have liked to wait, but the pressure was on as Peggy started to notice people behaving strangely around her. Like, Jarvis kept looking at her hands. And when she asked him why, he said he was concerned about nail fungus. Daniel agreed that was pretty weird, but when wasn’t Jarvis weird, right?

Finally, he gave up on anything romantic or grand, and literally took her by the shoulders one day, sat her down in a chair and proposed to her.

Daniel: *somewhat exasperated* Will you marry me, please?
Peggy: Oh! Yes, of course.
Daniel: ...really? God, that was easy. I should have done this six weeks ago.
Peggy: I’ve known you were going to ask for three.
Daniel Damnit!


Who stressed more over wedding planning? Peggy. Not because cared that much, but because she so didn’t, and everyone wanted her to, and she felt as though there was something wrong with her for not caring that much. Couldn’t they just go to city hall one day? Daniel was on a board for that, actually, but they both knew how much they’d disappoint the people who cared about them by eloping. So, Peggy started to delegate. Guests? Mrs Sousa is in charge of inviting Great Uncle Fernando. Entertainment? Angie knows how to find a good band. Oh, and her cousin knows a guy who caters! Fashion? Ana Jarvis is on top of this. She’s already drawn a dress! And a hat, just for fun. You don’t have to wear it.
Peggy: Mrs Jarvis, there is no question of me not wearing that hat.

Jarvis took care of the men’s fashion, the booking of venues (he knows people, and negotiated good deals), transportation, and basically every time Peggy mentioned something to him offhandedly, he’d have options for her the next time she saw him.
Who had the wildest bachelor(ette) party? Daniel. Howard was there. It was never clear if anyone actually invited Howard, but he was there. Daniel lost his leg at one point. Literally. No one could find it. It was gone. It turned up back at his hotel by morning, though, and no one died, so Howard thought he did a pretty good job overall. No need to thank him, just put all the damage on his tab.
Who freaked out before the wedding? Peggy. She was staying with Angie the night before, and woke her up to launch into a monologue, touching on various points including:
-I won’t be a good wife.
-I can’t cook.
-What if Daniel wants to have children right away and I don’t.
-What if I want to have children right away and he doesn’t.
-What if we can’t live together and only love each other because we don’t spend enough time together to know that we don’t love each other.
-What if this is terrible idea and I’m just not a person meant to be married.

Angie let her go at it for awhile, mostly because she was still half-asleep, before she told her it was 3:45AM, and to go back to bed and stop being ridiculous, obviously everything was going to be fine.
Angie: You two have faced down death together, Peg, you aren’t going to break up over whose turn it is to do the dishes.
Peggy: You’re right. Of course you are.
Angie: And if he treats you rotten, you call me and I’ll come and tell him off.
Peggy: *smile* Thank you. I’m going back to bed now.
Angie: Good. ‘Cause if I have dark circles under my eyes in your wedding photos, we ain’t gonna be friends anymore.

Best man/maid of honor: Angie was Peggy’s Maid of Honour, and did it with aplomb, thank you very much. Rose served as a bridesmaid, as well. Daniel had a friend from the army serve as his Best Man, and a SHIELD member as a groomsman. Howard noted it was the deadliest bridal party he’d ever seen.
Howard: Even the little actress chick can probably kick my ass.

What were the Bride’s Somethings ___ (if applicable): Peggy wore the same gold medallion necklace she’d worn every day for the last several years, for her something old. Mrs Sousa gave her pair of gloves for her something new. She borrowed a pair of earrings from Mrs Jarvis. And she pinned one of Michael’s medals under her dress for her something blue, and to have him with her. Her mother brought a sixpence for her shoe, even though they don’t do that in America.
If/what they wrote in their vows? They did the traditional vows. The minister accidentally made them overly traditional, putting the ‘obey’ into Peggy’s vows, then remembering she didn’t want it in there, and saying, ‘oh, sorry, not obey’. Peggy very happily promised to not obey Daniel.
Who cried at the wedding? Mrs Carter and Mrs Sousa. Two of Daniel’s sisters. Ana. It was dusty in the church, and Jarvis has bad allergies, which could be mistaken for crying, but he wasn’t. Really.
Which song did they have their first dance to? ’My Foolish Heart’. Daniel insisted for many months that he couldn’t dance, that it was too hard for him to coordinate holding a woman, using his crutch and making his feet work. Peggy told him to forget the crutch, and to rely on her, instead. It worked.
Where did they go on their honeymoon? Howard offered up his house in Nantucket for them as one of his wedding presents. The other wedding present was him working extra hard with Col. Phillips to manage at SHIELD without Peggy for as long as they could. They made it the full week! No one ever gave Howard the medal he felt he deserved for that.

Awwww, this is perfect. Daniel's proposal is also so spot on accurate. And that wedding hat is incredible. Peggy would like amazing in that hat.

Howard was there. It was never clear if anyone actually invited Howard, but he was there.

Of course he was. I feel like Howard has a weird beacon for parties. If a gathering needs to be revved up, there Howard will be.

Jarvis has bad allergies, which could be mistaken for crying, but he wasn’t. Really.

Yeah, allergies can totally make a person let out a sob and everything.

No one ever gave Howard the medal he felt he deserved for that.

I can hear Howard saying this so clearly.

Great job! And I totally am with you that Peggy and Daniel got married.

And that wedding hat is incredible.

That was one of the first results that came up when I was searching for 1950s wedding dresses, and I went 'Peggy would wear that hat'. But I thought it was maybe too much, so I was looking around at other wedding hats, but I kept coming back to that hat. The whole look is very Peggy Carter, but I didn't like the full skirt. Peggy would have embraced the Dior New Look and gone with something tea length and less bulky, IMO.

Yeah, allergies can totally make a person let out a sob and everything.

Hehe! Jarvis would be sobbing in the front row, totally. Right next to Peggy's mother, with her offering him her handkerchief.

Great job! And I totally am with you that Peggy and Daniel got married.

I have their ship meme done, too. And I've named their children. You can take away my show, but you will not take away my head canon! But if you want to give my show back, I mean, I will take that and give you the head canon.

I'm also three long chapters into a fic that might well end up basically being Agent Carter Fictional Season 3, because damn, this thing got out of hand. I seriously just wanted to play around with a trope about Peggy and Jarvis having to pretend to be married for a case (I thought it would be fun to do that with a platonic couple) and now a freakin' storyline has appeared, and OCs, and, like, damnit, brain. It actually might be the binge watching of Poirot on Netflix Mom and I have being doing, as well. About 12,000 words in I realized I was writing a 1940s murder mystery, but with Science Problems instead of murder.


ETA: Did you see Dominic Cooper on James Corden? He and James are adorable together. I've never seen Dom more animated.

Talking about their flatmate days
Dom does not sit like a gentleman

I can totally see this. I'm imagining Peggy and Jarvis having to kiss for the benefit of their cover and both of them being so super uncomfortable.

Jarvis: I mean absolutely no offense, Miss Carter. But this situation is rapidly becoming a nightmare.

ETA: Did you see Dominic Cooper on James Corden? He and James are adorable together. I've never seen Dom more animated.

I didn't but I just watched those clips. So hilarious! I've seen worse man-spreaders on NY subways, though. It seemed more like Cooper was just sliding all the way down on his seat rather than to the side. But anyway, I guess having a long history together makes it easier to interview. I find it really sweet that James Corden met his wife through Dominic Cooper.

Cooper's actually in NY this week as a venue I'm subscribed to asked me if I wanted to get a sneak peek at Preacher and listen to the cast and crew talk about it. It's not enough for me to want to change my already existing plans. However, had it been the cast and crew of Agent Carter I would so be there.

Haha!

Poor Jarvis is very stressed, not the least of which is because at the moment he's presented three different versions of his Edwin Jarvis self, and Miss Carter has played the role of A) his new bride, B) his wife of some time and C) actually Ana Jarvis (completely with accent and disturbingly accurate mannerisms), due to him continually bumping into people he knows.

Jarvis: This is going horribly wrong and can only end in tears!
Peggy: Oh, it's fine, stop blubbering.

It seemed more like Cooper was just sliding all the way down on his seat rather than to the side.

I just saw it as him being really comfortable in his chat, and getting settled. My whole family sits in weird positions, I don't think any of us sit like normal people. But we're not being interviewed. Sit like a gentleman, Dominic Cooper!

I find it really sweet that James Corden met his wife through Dominic Cooper.

And Dom is obviously so happy for them, too, which is cute. I think we decided he'd be the chill koala in our animal actor tea party cast. I've decided he's a matchmaker koala. He doesn't show up to all parties, but then he randomly invites people places and they meet the animal loves of their lives.

I weep for the fact that we'll never see Hayley Atwell get to do this. Because it would AMAZING. Identity and/or body swapping is a secret fave story line of mine. I'm now amusing myself with Jarvis having to pretend to be Howard.

Aww! I can see that. I'm imagining Giraffe!Matt Smith talking to Meerkat!Hiddleston about having little luck in finding a date to some function while Koala!Cooper silently listens in while eating a biscuit. Later he'll be like, "Want to come to this picnic next week? Other giraffes will be there..."
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on May 18th, 2016 12:26 am (UTC)
I'm now amusing myself with Jarvis having to pretend to be Howard.

This actually might be an excellent way for me to work in that idea of A) Howard being useless at disguising himself, and B) having to use a British accent. Some sort of scenario where he has to be Edwin Jarvis and Jarvis has to be Howard Stark, and within five minutes of practicing with Peggy on how to accomplish this, they're standing nose to chin, bellowing insulting impressions of one another at each other.

Howard: *uppercrust accent* Oh, sir, do stop holding that object, it is most dangerous!
Jarvis: *flawless New York accent* Nah, Jarvis, I'm just going to keep doing stupid things with it because it's swell when things explode and endanger our lives!
Peggy: *sigh* All right, let's start again, shall we?

I'd also think a body swap with Jarvis and Howard would be hilarious, especially with Howard suddenly acquiring long limbs.

Howard!Jarvis: I'm a fucking spider now, how do I walk?
Jarvis!Howard: Let me give you a tip from when I went through puberty: your feet are never where you think they are.
Howard!Jarvis: *knocks over all the flasks on a table*
Jarvis!Howard: Neither are your hands.

^_^

My favourite part of this is the idea of koala!Cooper hanging with all these groups of different animals like he fits right in. I think Dom's into photography, so koala!Cooper probably takes artistic pictures of him and his giraffe friends chilling, and posts them to Instagram. Koala!Cooper wears sunglasses, and a leather jacket, I've decided.

This would have been gold had they ever done something like this on the show.

I can also see a woman coming onto Jarvis!Howard and him kind of failing at flirting while Howard!Jarvis watches on in horror.

I could see that. He'd be totally chill and tweeting about how much fun he's having with great friends.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on May 18th, 2016 02:06 am (UTC)

Howard!Jarvis: Oh my god, I'm ruined.


Hee!

I had an image of Ana casually walking in and kissing Howard!Jarvis hello before anyone can warn her.

Ana: *immediately* You are NOT Edwin! *instinctive slap across the face*
Howard!Jarvis: Hey! I did not initiate that kiss.
Jarvis!Howard: Oh good, my worst nightmare has come true. Howard Stark has kissed my wife.
Howard!Jarvis: I didn't kiss her!
Jarvis!Howard: On the bright side, it's immensely satisfying to be slapped and not feel it.
Howard!Jarvis: I didn't kiss her! I have a code! I'd never kiss her! By the way, how exactly did I kiss you that you knew I wasn't him?
Ana: *slap*
Howard!Jarvis: Okay, that one's fair.

Random dangerous thought: if there were daemons happening, do they get swapped with their humans or would they still be attached to the old bodies? Or would the daemons swap bodies, too?

Haddie: Good lord, I'm racoon. I haven't been a racoon since you were seven, Edwin.
Dejeni: I don't have fingers. My fingers are gone. My fingers are gone! *paws at a screwdriver* My fingers. Are. Gone!

I could see that. He'd be totally chill and tweeting about how much fun he's having with great friends.

Awww.

Did we ever give Hayley Attwell an animal? Or D'arcy?
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on May 18th, 2016 02:21 am (UTC)
I just watched the entire James Corden episode with Dominic Cooper. The pre-interview stuff with them was hilarious! It's basically them arguing back and forth about who was complaining about the food on set to the point where Dominic Cooper just yells, "I HAVE WITNESSES! THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED!!!" You can so easily tell they know each other from years back. I'm going to guess that James Corden doesn't always feel so comfortably in shamelessly insulting his guests usually.

if there were daemons happening, do they get swapped with their humans or would they still be attached to the old bodies? Or would the daemons swap bodies, too?

I'd imagine that their daemons switch bodies too. If only because I think that's the easiest solution and I kind of laughing at the idea of both Howard and Dejeni panicking about their bodies.

Howard!Jarvis: Jesus, it's like being on stilts!
Dejeni: Nevermind about your damn legs. We've got an emergency here! My fingers are gone!
Howard!Jarvis: *trips over*
Dejeni: *paws at tools, flops down in despair*

Haddie: *watching the chaos* Perhaps we should assist?
Jarvis!Howard: Let's give it five more minutes.

Jarvis!Howard: On the bright side, it's immensely satisfying to be slapped and not feel it.

Knowing Jarvis' luck, this will be the time a woman Howard dumped would run into them.

Woman: *slap!*
Jarvis!Howard: *sighs* Of course.

We never gave Hayley Atwell an animal. I think you were circling maybe an ostrich for D'arcy?

I find James a little too chat show host in his interviews to enjoy them much. There's nothing wrong with him, and I like the Graham Norton method of bringing people out together, but the questions are always so 'let's talk about this thing we agreed you would talk about before the show started'. Which is why you can tell he and Dom are friends, because James is clearly going off script to tease him.

I do love all of Cordon's sketches and bits, though. Crosswalk: the musical, and carpool karaoke are great.

I'll have to see if I can get the full show somewhere. I'm region locked from CBS.

Haddie: *watching the chaos* Perhaps we should assist?
Jarvis!Howard: Let's give it five more minutes.


I see Haddie being sensible and putting her new fingers to use while she can. Might as well tidy up, right?

Haddie: Let's make a soufflee! I've always wanted to use a whisk.


Woman: *slap!*
Jarvis!Howard: *sighs* Of course.


Hee! The reason Peggy has to pretend to be Ana in my story is that they bump into an old flame of Howard's, who is still sort of a friends with benefits type lover that Jarvis knows very well, and Peggy is mystified by this amazing creature that is a woman who has dated Howard Stark and doesn't hate him.

Peggy: who was that?
Jarvis: an old friend of Mr Stark's, as I said.
Peggy: And yet your cheek remains unslapped.

We never gave Hayley Atwell an animal. I think you were circling maybe an ostrich for D'arcy?

Yes, that's right. After watching D'arcy chase a flamingo around, a long legged bird seems even more apropos.

I feel like Hayley would be a very playful sort of silly animal. Like a monkey. Or a cat.

I've never actually watched James Corden do interviews. I've only seen the sketches he does. Carpool Karaoke is my favorite.

Ha! I can see her happily going ahead on this while Dejeni is just slumped in the corner, gnawing at a screwdriver in despair.

Dejeni: This is all I can do now with tools. I'm reduced to this.

I think he just needs to settle in a little more on the interviews. But part of the problem is that I loved the way Craig Ferguson interviewed his guests, and I just miss him when I watch James do it now.

Dude, CTV streams James Corden episodes! I did not know this. I can watch full episodes! This is exciting.

Haddie: *happily cracks eggs, whistling* I'm sure you'll learn to adapt. And Mr Stark is working to reverse the effects now. Perhaps you should help?
Dejeni: *holds up leg* Paws! I have paws!
Haddie: Would Mr Stark like a chocolate soufflé or a cheese one?
Dejeni: Paws!
Haddie: I think we have strawberries. Perhaps a strawberry soufflé. I can slice them myself!

That was great. The whole interview felt very relaxed and friendly. But I imagine that's not really the norm since Corden doesn't have a personal friendship with all his guests.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on May 18th, 2016 04:49 am (UTC)
They're just adorable together. They're exactly like two college roommates who are meeting up as adults and remembering old times. I wish more press stuff had that relaxed feeling to it, instead of the standard questions everyone gets asked a million times.

I like the Nerdist podcasts for that reason. I'd like to see Dom on there, actually. I feel like he and Chris Hardwick would have fun together.

I'm off to bed now, but as always, it was lovely to riff with you in weird fandom ways!
