I think at this rate, if someone collects all the gifs made for the Avengers we can watch the movie from beginning to end.
Avengers MCU | Clint/Coulson | 3.5k words
Or, the Incident of Stark Tower Invasion: Investigated, Analyzed and Revealed.
Clint Barton and Phil Coulson. Add some aliens, SHIELD personnel, a dash of Avengers, a dose of Darcy Lewis and Pepper Potts, and one very, very curious SHIELD agent.
dear OP (hopefully you see this, my message system isn’t working), but anyways: isn’t this yours? :S
Wow, Tony. He’s only going to get milk.
“I swear to god, Steve, I will drop the PASIV out of this fucking window if you don’t tell me RIGHT NOW why you thought taking this goddamn job was a good idea, what with Bucky running around our heads trying to shoot us out of our dreams.”
“Can’t you feel it, Clint? You’re antsy. We’re all antsy. We’ve been the best dreamshare team there is out there since Cobb’s disbanded, and we haven’t gone under in over a year.”
Avengers Inception AU → wherein Thor of Odin Corp. hires Steve Rogers’ elite dreamsharing team to perform inception on his brother, Loki, and a shade of their ex-resident thief Bucky (who was killed when the team’s last job went horribly wrong) tries his best to sabotage it.
Or: Steve extracts, Tony builds, Clint runs point, Natasha’s a master of impersonation, Bruce concocts, Thor’s a tourist, and things happen.
still one of my favorite lines ever from the movie.
This is how everyone else will see it:
Clint and Tony don’t so much happen as other people don’t happen.
Natasha and Clint fell through long before Budapest, while Tony and Pepper end when Tony almost dies for the billion-and-first time. Clint and Coulson circle each other for long, pushing and pulling but never truly embracing, and Tony and Steve, well—there has never been a sadder, funnier, and more ridiculous love story when two people are in an unrequited crush with one another.
No one dares to say anything, of course, but there’s a company-wide betting pool that has reached a legendary status. Sitwell is the one running it (his money’s on Clint and Bruce, if you’re wondering), and practically everyone in SHIELD has a say. Coulson and Hawkeye are totally sleeping together, one group says, and another shakes their head, sighing as they argue, obviously long-overdue rebound with Black Widow. Some say, have you heard about Tony Stark and Dr. Banner, and others chuckle dismissively, please. you can see Stark’s and Cap’s unresolved sexual tension from a mile away. No group has yet to be proven right, and it’s one of those things that drive the SHIELD office rivalry, along with the Monday morning limited free coffee and Friday’s Stall 3’s Lunch Special.
Only one guy puts his money on Tony and Clint, and he bets quite a sum on it. Everyone thinks he is stupid.
Einstein was once thought to be stupid, too. We all know how the story went.
