It hasn't been easy finding the time to work. Between the lack of privacy, the inability to access any non-SHIELD sanctioned devices, working at the Triskelion, and dealing with broken fragments of a program which had been designed to automatically erase itself upon completion, it has been a challenge for Daisy. Not to mention that all of this needs to happen with the utmost of secrecy while spending most of her time at the headquarters of a giant spy agency! It's almost a miracle that she's gotten this far in a little over a month's time.

The endgame is right around the corner, she can feel it. Simulations have been run. Missing or broken strings of code have been reconstructed. She's going to get to the bottom of this… It's what she does. Besides, she already has some familiarity with this kind of program. If someone else is trying to rip off—

Dark eyes widen as she stares back at the screen. The results are quickly read. Re-read. Triple-checked. Three words are spoken in a breathless whisper.

"Oh..my god…"

The program hadn't been ripped off. It isn't a copy. It's original work, and it's damn good work. There isn't a 'Maker's Mark' as she had been looking for, possibly even expecting to find. The original coder had been much too careful for that.

The USB stick is swiftly pulled from the side of the terminal. Programs are closed out. All traces of her work are cleared from memory. The portable drive stays with her, kept hidden from sight as she spins away from the table and starts to walk away. In an instant she's created a lot more problems than she's found solutions.

There's a very good reason why she's familiar with this kind of program, and 'Skye' happens to know the coder behind this one better than anyone.
