"Mm-hm. Where do I land?"

The video of his face dissolves into video of a location. It looks like bombed-out wasteland.

Permalink

Quelle surprise. She picks him up and brings him there.

Permalink

He presumably talks with some people. Huan comes bounding out about ten minutes later.

Permalink

"Hi Huan!" She scratches him behind an ear and teleports him into the lab, where she plugs Maedhros back in.

Permalink

Huan appears to be fiercely resisting the urge to go lick Carol. He goes for Lúthien instead.

Permalink

"No being an animal in my lab, please! That's directed at all of you with no particular prejudice against the animal."

Huan gives her half a look then returns to Lúthien.

Permalink

"Be polite to the dog deity, please."

Permalink

"This lab has sensitive equipment, I don't care how divinely he drools."

Permalink

"Huan, please do not drool on the sensitive equipment," Loki says.

Permalink

Huan gives her a look too, and continues licking exclusively Lúthien, who seems delighted about it.

Permalink

"It is hard to see you off so quickly, but hopefully we will see you back soon! Goodbye!"

Permalink

"We haven't even had a tactical discussion yet, but if you like we can do it somewhere with less sensitive equipment."

Permalink

"There's a nice waiting area right outside." It has a view of Wakanda's elaborate cave system and trains.

Permalink

Out they go into the waiting area to discuss tactics.

Lúthien can attempt to put Thanos to sleep. Loki can lay down illusions of everything that is actually present over the things that are present, which will do exactly nothing until Thanos starts trying to make things that are not there appear to be there, in which case they can have an illusion fight. Huan and Thor are on distracting physical combatant duty. Loki's going to be doing some of that and also trying to coax the space stone; once she's got it, if she gets it, she can make Thanos's gauntlet not be on him. Carol should then hopefully be able to use the power stone to nerf any stones that Thanos manages to get ahold of, and Thanos himself, whatever his baseline abilities are.

"That sounds like a good plan!"

Permalink

"Haven't been in any fights before, have you, princess?"

Permalink

"No, why?"

Permalink

"Most plans sound good, when there's no one shooting at you.

 

But I think it's the best we've got."

Permalink

"At no time should Thanos be allowed to focus his undivided attention on Lúthien. If he just kills her that's recoverable, if he does something fancy like disintegrate her then it has to wait for the peal to fix it to avoid being resurrected sans some un-backed-up memory."

Permalink

"Is that not true for the rest of you?"

Permalink

"For the rest of us there is no harm in his power beyond death, not that I know of," says Thor. "Perhaps the soul stone permits something."

Permalink

"Huan is less recoverable than Lúthien but may or may not be impossible to kill unless you are a literal werewolf and can take a hit much better than she can, up to and including self-reassembling the dog form in more or less time if he's distintegrated," Loki continues. "I'm indestructible, this has not been tested against infinity stones because I have not wanted to make mine mad but it will hold up against uncreative damages - Thor, how about you, there are some divergences between here and home - Carol? -"

"I don't know if I'm indestructible," says Carol. "Nothing has tried to destruct me hard enough to do it, though! But that's true of everyone, isn't it? Since we're all here."

Permalink

"I am much more powerful than when Loki my brother was last on good terms with me, but the focused attention of Thanos could almost certainly destroy me," says Thor. 

Permalink

"Okay, Carol and Thor are potentially destructible, easy for the peal to get back but I can't do it with what I have on hand. So in general let's try to avoid Thanos focusing his attention on anyone, just distract him till we get his rocks. Huan, can you be an osanwë relay for field coordination? I can't think of a good dog-related metaphor to make it sound appealing, unfortunately."
