    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.

    “What do you want, Jack?”

    He reached out and brushed his knuckles along her jaw, then laid his hand over her cheek. “Just to say goodbye, Lizzie,” he said. There was a strange gentleness in his voice she couldn’t make heads or tails of, only that it made his dark eyes look wounded in the light of the dying light of the fire. “I didn’t get the chance, before.”

    Lovely, lyrical snapshots of after.

    Wooster has a reputation for pinching things--necklaces, amber statuettes, umbrellas--a reputation that becomes dashedly awkward when Lord Attenbury's emeralds go missing.

    "Bertie, you blot on the family escutcheon!" the aforementioned aunt, my good and deserving Aunt Dahlia, cried. "What are you doing here?"

    "I like that," I responded with no little heat. "Here I drove from the distant metrop. in answer to an ancient relative's urgent telegram, only to have her look at me like some battered corpse the cat dragged in."

    "I sent no blasted telegram!"

    I tut-tutted. "You most certainly did."

    "I did not."

    "You did."

    This would be 100% headcanon except that it makes all of Wooster ouch.
