    Summary

    If younger Clint could see him now, he'd be really fucking shocked at how old he is. He used to think that retirement was for other people.

    Summary

    New Year's Eve with a bunch of drunk agents is the last place Phil Coulson wants to be. Thank god he's not on duty and he's got an amazing view.

    OR

    Phil Coulson is a Mature Adult. And Mature Adults do not get upset about the same things children do. He knows that. He does. But he can be morose, adults can be morose, right?

    OR

    Clint Barton ruins all his plans. All of them. But at least he brings great booze.

    Summary

    Fidelity to a cause is easy as long as you believe most of what they're doing is right. Fidelity to yourself is a lot harder, because it's easy just to see your life as a series of failures rather than a series of successful recoveries from failures. Learning something from each of them.

    Clint Barton has had very few precious things to feel that strongly about, but everyone has to grow sometimes. Like most of his life though, it's not exactly a straight line or an easy recovery.

    Summary

    Phil, dutifully, cracked the internal seal on the cold pack and sighed in relief as it hit the overly warm muscles near his neck and arm. Later he cracked the heat pack and did the same. Alternating as prescribed in the Pulled Muscle Memo of ’05. At least, he did for about 90 minutes, before being pulled into a meeting that would not end and his arm still felt pretty good when he escaped, so he let it go and moved onto his next task without stopping in his office first. It all seemed to go fine. He swallowed some Advil before bed because he was still and went to sleep.

    The problem didn’t manifest until he reached for a clean mug the next morning. His fingers fell inches short as his arm abruptly stopped its rotation sooner than usual, a throb of unhappy pain accompanying it.

     

    OR

     

    Phil strains something, Clint makes it feel better. And then there are feelings and porn.

    Summary

    There are three types of SHIELD Agents. The kind who have a long and respected career but something prompts them to retire before they can no longer function in the real world. The kind who dies in the line of duty, protecting and defending something important. And the kind who simply drift away, slowly swallowed by the machine of SHIELD, eventually becoming nothing more than a ghost, a rumor of an agent that never left, never died, but was just subsumed by work.

    Phil Coulson, in his tiredest thoughts, figured he'd be probably be a ghost, just not this way.

    Summary

    “Clint?” Phil calls from where’s standing, raising on his toes to be sure.

    “Yes?”

    "Why is there a knife-wielding crustacean in my kitchen?"

    OR

    These things only happen to Clint.

    Summary

    For one thing, he’s waiting for Natasha to tell him what medical facility Phil is being treated at. When he’d first come back to himself, dizzy and confused, Phil’s delicate presence had been all but gone. After a few deep breaths, something had filtered back in and Clint was able to relax and get on with the waking up.

    Or

    It's not that Fury lies, so much as Phil probably shouldn't have survived in the first place. Clint was never meant to be his backup plan. Still, Fury does lie a little, but Phil and Clint have been doing that for years, so they can't really point fingers.

    Summary

    Clint’s face darkens and his entire body goes tight like he’s fighting his flight instincts and Phil winces.

    “No,” Phil says, “I’m doing this terribly. I’m sorry, I’ve never had to tell my date that I’m not gay before. At least, I didn’t think I was?”

    OR

    At his age, Phil Coulson didn't expect to re-examine anything in his life with that level of detail. Then again, Barton is involved and all of Phil's plans don't usually survive him swanning in on a crumbling rooftop anyway.

    Summary

    He knows, no matter what, it’ll be fun, there’s no real need to buy two tickets except that was the assumption of the internet check out app and if anyone asks, Phil will deny to his dying breath feeling judged by a small bit of programming. Still, he spends twice as much as he needs. He likes the idea of taking someone with him, to laugh with, to maybe share a new experience.

    Or

    Making friends is hard, especially when you have no idea what you're doing.

    Summary

    It happens because they don’t have a good enough prison to put both of them, let alone two prisons to separate them. The guys who have them know enough about SHIELD to know if you have two trained agents you want them either locked up separate in at least better than average prisons or locked up together in the equivalent of Fort Knox. When SHIELD agents can clearly communicate, the bad guys chances go down hill quickly.

    Or

    It's never a good when the bad guys have to get creative.

    Summary

    Clint chokes out a laugh, because oh god, Coulson should not say those things, he looks up to explain it when he sees Coulson’s face, which is smiling softly and happily. Their eyes meet and something inside Clint feels alive again, only it’s been so long the feeling confuses him, but he won’t look away because it’s something new.

    Or

    Things get better. A little.

    Summary

    Clint sometimes protects himself too well. Sometimes Phil Coulson does the exact same thing. This occasionally leads to heartache, strife and Natasha Romanov kicking your ass six ways from Sunday.

    Or

    The one time Clint said no to being fake husbands with Coulson and never got a chance to explain why.

    Summary

    Coulson doesn’t force anything on him, no interaction, no replies, just possibly the occasional morsel of food and that isn’t a demand so much as a combination of pleading and worried eyes. Also Clint knows he needs the calories, he usually feels a bit better for a few minutes after he chokes something down, no matter how much he doesn’t want it at the time.
