    Summary

    Clint was convinced that Phil Coulson was the man he was going to marry. Seriously, for realsies and forever, if Clint could manage it. Phil was perfect. Okay, so he was meaner than a territorial goshawk before coffee and there was that time he’d made an Army General cry, but still. Phil was an adorable dork who loved the ideals of Captain America, read comics with unabashed glee, and tried to feed everyone kale in the middle of a mission. Clint’s only option was to marry the man, seriously.

    Now he just had to convince Coulson.

    (In which Clint attempts to woo Phil Coulson and his friends aren't entirely helpful, but he manages anyway.)

    Summary

    For Phil Coulson, a middle aged writer from New York, getting an assignment to go to a military base in Afghanistan and spend eleven weeks living amongst the men and women who work there with no further instructions besides "Find me a story that's human and will make people feel something" from his editor, Nick, sounded like it might be an interesting experience. Seeing up close and personal what it was like to be a part of the longest ongoing war in American history seemed like it might give him the kind of opportunity a writer of small, unimportant pieces like he wrote a chance to write something that people actually cared about.

    What he found instead was love in the most unexpected way and an experience that would change his life forever.

    Summary

    “I’m Wolf Blitzer, and there’s some shocking Breaking news this hour.” Steve paled some and stopped mid-curl when his own face popped up on the screen. He didn’t know what was about to be said, but he knew it couldn’t be good.

    And it wasn’t.

    Wolf Blitzer’s voice was what Steve’s hearing narrowed to as the headline popped up and he spoke. “It’s been discovered in the dumped SHIELD files that Steve Rogers, Captain America himself, jumped off the Manhattan Bridge in New York in what the medical and psychological files consider a suicide attempt.”

    Summary

    The cancer hadn't just taken their son. It'd taken pieces of them. Parts of them gone and gone and gone until all that was left were jagged gushing wounds that wouldn't cauterise. And what was life then? What did every new day bring, but another experience in bleeding out?

     

    Some battles you just can't win. This is what happens after.

    Summary

    Phil has control issues, Clint has power issues, and the Avengers are a bundle of issues. It’s no wonder Maria wants nothing to do with them. Phil doesn’t seem to have a choice.
