Agent Carter: Giving Oneself Airs

Title: Giving Oneself Airs
Characters: Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark, General Someguy

Pairings: none
Word Count 3,540
Summary: Lance Corporal Edwin Jarvis meets an American without any sense of decorum, and gives him a bit of a hand.
Author's notes: This is an idea that cropped out of something else I was writing, when my Word Fairy said 'no, let's go think about that'. I had an idea of writing how Jarvis and Howard met, and exploring Howard Stark before he was a fully formed Howard Stark, and what both Jarvis and the General might have done to make Howard want to step in for Jarvis later on.

I'm not entirely sure if Jarvis met Howard before the war or during it, but I've placed it before for my own purposes, and this story is set in 1937. The MCU timeline is a thing of a great and terrible beauty, but it says that Howard was born in 1917, so he would be about twenty here. I'm guessing Jarvis is a few years older (?). It also says that Howard met Erskine at a science conference in 1934, when Howard would have only been seventeen or so, so I'm guessing he started the company really young and had success super fast.

This story contradicts a few things I wrote in 'The Virtues of Being Useful', but that's really AU now that Season Two has aired, so it doesn't matter much.

Sir, your clothing. You’re not in the right tie.Collapse )
