Y/n gets nervous before an interview and Scarlett makes up a code for you
You were always nervous during interviews. Nobody really knew about the stress you went under, you didn't really like telling people because you didn't want to make a big fuss about it as they had bigger things to worry about. So you simply just dealt with it. To be honest it never got too bad as the only interviews you had done were little ones with some of your cast members, you've never had to do a large panel at a comic con or something like that but you dreaded the day that had to come. And that day was today.
Now you're in the car heading to Comic Con about getting ready for the civil war panel and you were practically shaking and worrying about different things. Now because you were a woman in this business you were especially worried about getting a sexist, inappropriate question. As you had experienced it with Scarlett as she unfortunately got loads of them, Lizzie not so much she was lucky. But sometimes you saw the downside to those types of questions, after an interview where Scarlett got sexist question you remember one time you saw her tear up and it broke your heart to see her like that and cry over a dickhead who wasn't doing his job probably. After seeing Scarlett like that you were always on the edge of getting a question like that as Scarlett to you was always a tough cookie she never properly cried in front of you, well she didn't cry in front of you over her own problems. She'd only cry if she saw you in pain or cry over a problem, but still she was always a tough cookie.
You got out of the car and made your way through the back stage door to meet up with everyone else. You got there just in time as when you arrived the Russo Brothers were putting people in line for the order they were supposed to come out and so they sat next to the people they needed to. So they put Tom next to Robert so he could prevent him from ruining anything and they tried to avoid Scarlett and Chris sitting next to each other as they always seemed to end up distracting each other with their little games of tic tac toe. That ended with you up sitting you next to Scarlett which you had no problem with.
You and Scarlett had become very close, you even started your Marvel journeys together as you both joined in Iron man 2 and ever since then Scarlett had become like a big sister to you but also a mother figure and a close best friend. And you two were inseparable. You always ganged up on Mackie and Sebastian, well mainly you but Scarlett just stood by your side silently judging all three of you for acting like children. Even though you only saw Scarlett as a second mother figure most of the times, like say when you were doing a stunt she would stand of to the side shitting herself that you might get hurt, but Scarlett always saw you as a daughter. Scarlett loved you with all her heart and she would do anything to protect you. She always took care of you; made sure you were hydrated enough or you were eating properly. She attempted to help you with your school work most times but it always ended up with you and Evans teaching her how to solve an equation. She's taken care of you ever since the first day on set of Iron Man 2, you were about 3 or 4 when you did that movie and it was your first big movie so you were prone to all new things and Scarlett would always teach you about them. She always sat you on her lap at lunch. If you disappeared on set she'd always run around trying to find you knowing you were up to something. If you two weren't filming and you were bored she'd always play with you. And if you got tired she was always the shoulder you leaned on to go to sleep. She even became part of the Y/l/n family. After filming a movie it was tradition that she would always come back to England and stay with your family for a few weeks before press tour. And you became part of the Johansson family and you spent many Thanksgivings with her, Rose and the rest of the family.
The memories of you and Scarlett were interrupted with a tap on your shoulder. You turned around to see Scarlett with a concerned look on her face.
"You alright hun? You're really shaking!"
"I'm just nervous" You choked out tears welling you in your eyes.
"Awww sweetheart, well what's wrong is it because it's your first big panel? Cause you've never been nervous before any other interviews." She coos as she brings you into a warm hug which you obviously return. "You have nothing to worry about, they'll love you and if they don't well they're fucking idiots cause who could not love you?" she laughs a little as she rests her chin on the top of your head as she guides your head to her chest.
"It's just I'm worried that I might get a sexist question like you do, which fucking sucks." you mumble which is just loud enough for her to hear. And she does is leans down and lefts up your chin and whispers "Language" to which she laughs at but you playfully push her away but it still makes you smile.
"Ok being serious now, what we're going to do is.... we're going to make up codes!"
"Yeah codes so you can tell me how you're doing during the panel"
"And what are these code exactly?"
"Ummm....... let's say if you doing fine I don't know just tap me on the leg. If you let's say don't understand the question just lie take a sip of water. And if you're uncomfortable with the question just grab my hand but there's no need for that cause no doubt that ill intervene and tell the idiot off but if I'm not quick enough then one of the boys mainly Robert and Evans will get there before me. Yeah?"
"What's the code for I love you?" I smile.
"This" she giggles just as she pulls me into another hug but also peppering my face with little kisses. "You feel better now?"
"Yeah I do thanks Scar" you smile as you bring her into another hug. "I love you" you mumble.
"Love you more, god you don't understand how much I love you and how much you mean to me."
"Come on let's get up here before we both get fired."
"They could never replace you Romanoff"
"Ha ha you're funny" she said with a slight sarcastic tone
