How To Lose Friends and Alienate People (The Enemy of My Enemy Remix) (1326 words) by theladyscribe
Rating: Not Rated
Relationships: Maria Hill & Pepper Potts, Maria Hill & Tony Stark
Characters: Maria Hill, Pepper Potts
Summary: If this were a normal job search, Maria would start by creating a spreadsheet of all the security and technology firms in the world, categorizing them by corporation or government-operated, making a list of known associates in her network, and listing the pros and cons of each firm. Since this is not a normal job search, she pulls up the Stark Industries website and clicks on "Careers."
A remix of igrockspock's How To Make Friends and Influence People.
My original plan was to write a story about Maria helping Steve and Sam track down Bucky, but then it became about Maria making herself an asset to Stark Industries and the way her goals intertwine with those of Pepper and Tony. Once I figured that out, the story really just wrote itself.
