    Summary

    After Frederica and Vernon's engagement, everything goes smoothly. Well, as smoothly as it can. Somehow, Frederica had not expected ceremonial visits to be one of the consequences.

    "If I might trouble you for a macaroon," he said. She looked from him to the little plate of almond biscuits and burst out laughing.

    "I'm sorry," she gasped, "I don't mean to find it funny, but I couldn't help but wonder who the macaroons were for. No one in our household likes them. Here, have the plate."

    They're so good together! Everyone else has so many opinions about Frederica and Vernon and they are just amused by it all.

    GQ - May, 2010

    A month before his big 40th birthday bash (and immediately following the events at Monaco), Tony does an interview with GQ that is surprisingly honest, remarkably insightful, and hints a little at something more serious going on behind the scenes.

    When I ask him about what it's like to be a superhero turning forty, Stark is not at all modest. “I'm amazing. I know I'm amazing, you know I'm amazing. Let's talk about how amazing I am.”

    It was two days later that Colin sidled up to him and asked, in a tone that didn’t quite make it to casual, ‘So you don’t do relationships at all, then?’ Their conversation ended with Bradley giving him a bone-crushing hug, trying to inhale Colin, as though that was possible, and Colin hugged back, Bradley thinking maybe, maybe (please).

    Really sweet fumbling towards okay; the glitches are sickeningly familiar.

    Summary

    The words on his arm were crisp and clear, written in a rushed-looking scrawl like someone had taken a purple marker to Phil’s skin.

    So I take it that second honeymoon isn’t working out the way you’d hoped?

    Phil’s legs went out from under him and he sat down with a painful thud, all brain processes diverted to the task of staring at his arm and wondering—and wondering—

    Phil was waiting, was the thing. Not for sex—definitely not for that—but for romance, for a relationship. He knew that not every soulbond was sexual or romantic in nature, but most were, and he wanted that, wanted the kind of marriage his parents had, bound together in every possible way.
    And he was going to meet his soulmate on his second honeymoon?

    “Do you have good grades, Phil Coulson?” Agent Fury finally asked.

    “Yes, sir.”

    “Extracurriculars? Hobbies?”

    “Marching band and track, sir. And, er. Collecting comics.”

    “What instrument?”

    Phil blinked. “Um. Saxophone?”

    “Good,” Agent Fury said. “Trumpet players are assholes.”

    I love the character voices in this, and the worldbuilding is really well done.

    Summary

    “It just felt really cathartic,” Hayley says. “She’s been in such a horrific mourning phase for the last few episodes, and it felt like a bit of closure for her finally.” Hayley remembers the deep sorrow she'd tapped into on the soundstage, trying to imagine the realization of never seeing Steve again. In some ways, showing up to Chris crashed out on her couch is the perfect antidote to the emotional mess of her day.

    A withering sigh floats up from Hayley’s lap. “That’s nice,” he says as though distracted, his eyes shifted over to the telly where Clooney and Pitt are leaning against a car talking, the volume down so low that the words aren’t audible. “Are we gonna order pizza?”

    Chris yelps as Hayley attempts to smother him with her Kansas City Royals throw pillow.

    Chris grabs her hand with a laugh and tugs her closer. He smells incredibly good, and he’s warm as hell. Hayley knows where this is going even before he slips his hand to the small of her back and says, “Hails?” a pet name that almost makes her laugh into his mouth when he kisses her.

    This is adorable, the voices are topnotch, the jokes are hilarious, I love it.
