    Summary

    It was an accident, a random convergence of right time, right place, but when Laura Barton discovers that her husband's ex-lover is still alive and apparently still working for SHIELD she knows Clint deserves an explanation.

    Seven goddamn months Phil put off calling the Barton family and letting them know he isn't as dead as they were told. It's probably well-deserved karma that gives Laura the chance to verbally kick him in the ass, in front of his new team no less.

    But it's going to be Clint's inclination to kill him first and then demand an explanation that's going to be his biggest problem.

    Best reconciliation of canon Laura/Clint and sincere Clint/Phil I've read.

    Nick always said he’d buy Phil a slave boy if he didn’t settle down and learn to look after himself.

    Summary

    In The Avengers, Natasha Romanova says "Love is for children." It's an expression of life as she knows it, and fits the harsh background most of the Avengers have experienced. Trouble is, people don't do very well without love. In particular it's impossible to form a good team if the members don't care about each other.

    So Phil Coulson comes up with a teambuilding exercise to resolve that problem. If love is for children ... then he'll arrange that experience for them. The result is an exploration of nonsexual ageplay to allow a group of very powerful, very broken people to patch up some of the gaps in their lives.

    Most of the stories are very sweet in tone and make for good comfort reading. However, canon gives these characters some very unpleasant pasts, and that comes up as they process the aftermath. So the tone does vary, and some stories are more intense than others. They deal with different characters, relationships, and sensitive issues.

    Some folks have avoided this series for fear that it goes into sexual territory; it doesn't. Same with embarrassment, very low on that.

    Worth reading just for the parenting resource footnotes, or reading just for pleasure.
