    Summary

    By Phil’s count, this is his third attempt at bringing the Avengers together, although he will admit his participation in the second attempt was more symbolic than anything else. He hadn’t expected Stark to be the easiest sell, or Barton to be the most problematic, but things have changed since he’s been away. [Movie spoilers.]

    Bookmark Notes:

    Coulson turns just about in time to shoot the alien, three feet away from him. Except then the air blurs right behind him; Clint calls it but Coulson doesn’t move, even when the alien appears at his back. Clint is shooting even as he drops from the roof, needing to get to the ground in a hurry. Phil is still not moving and Clint couldn't possibly have missed him getting hit. He's not always good enough but he's better than this.

    When he gets down to the ground, Phil's eyes are unfocussed and he doesn't react to Clint dropping down beside him. He startles away at the hand Clint lays on his shoulder. “Sir?”

    Clint pulls his hand away. God, his list of SHIELD therapists would be having a field day with this. Unable to recognise the fucking obvious signs of someone having a flashback.

    The aliens, however, do seem to have noticed. They’re congregating on this spot and there isn’t enough cover to keep Phil in it and give Clint a decent angle to shoot from.

    “Iron Man? I need a lift.”

    “Kinda busy right now, Hawkeye.”

    “Now, Tony!”

    They're in the air in seconds and back up at Clint's nest not long after that.

    Clint lets go of Coulson as soon as he's able, taking a step back to look at him. “Now what? Sir? I really need you to...”

    This isn't helping.

    Tony, hovering only a few feet off the rooftop, says, “Barton, come on, we both know how to- tell him where he is, tell him he's fine. Don’t touch him until you’re sure he knows where he is.” It's maybe the first time either of them has acknowledged that they both go places in their head sometimes. Tony's voice changes. “What does he do when it's you?”

    That makes things easier and unexpectedly harder. Phil wouldn't have needed to be told, or at least he never had before. Clint had missed this, but he knows all the words. He says, “It's Tuesday. I don't know the date because my times mostly start at T-minus, but it's May twenty-thirteen and it's Tuesday. And you're fine. It's just you and me, and Tony, I guess, but he's still up in the air. It's Tuesday and you're safe, I swear. You told me you were. You've got your gun and I have my bow so nothing's getting past us today.”

    Phil blinks. “Stark, get back into the fight.”

    Tony protests weakly, “I should-.”

    “Go. Now. Barton, eyes on the field.”

    Tony flies off and Clint turns to get his bow back where it should be. Behind him, he can hear Phil breathing, too fast, in and out.
