Oh you! I'm a sucker for team fics, a bigger sucker for Agent fics (play-dough? Lol). But somehow I'm the most vulnerable of all to these heart-wrenchingly beautiful stories about righting wrongs and of love and friendship and loyalty. You hit all three, so forgive me if the review you deserve is a little lost behind the tears I can't quite see through yet. I'll just have to stick with "mission accomplished."

And this is why Cap is flipping awesome! Great job and very well written. Instant favorite!

I love this. It wast well written, and most of all, Coulson was alive, so obviously it was destined to be awesome. Great job.

So wonderful and perfect that there aren't words to tell you how much I enjoyed reading this. Phil, and everybody else for that matter, was perfect and the detail and the cards...just lovely all around. Happy Writing:)

The ending was too sweet.

"A mere alien blade to the back, delivered by a god's hand? He'd gone through worse trying to get Barton to file his paperwork properly." ! That is a great line (true, too). ** Even on the verge of death, Phil analyzes Loki's attack and realizes why it won't work. Missed Phil's heart, Loki's overthinking and has too much hurt, has insufficient conviction, his own worst enemy, etc. Anybody else would just be moaning in pain, but Phil analyzes not only this attack, but Loki's whole strategy. ** Tony bringing shawarma and telling Phil they didn't want to break in a new man in black handler - perfectly in character, as were the Captain America bandages. (Band-Aids gets vexed if you use their brand name as a generic, although not nearly as much as Curad does if you use Band-Aids' name for their product.) ** Lovely handling of remembering Budapest differently. ** "Paperwork ... the unfortunate aftermath of any saving of the world." Too true, too true. As for the cards ... that was beautiful. Excellent story.

Great fic - I think you fixed that up nicely! I loved the interactions with each of the team and it was such a lovely ending.
( if you can fix what Mr Joss did to poor Wash in Serenity, I'd be eternally grateful and less perminantly traumatised.)

Wow, this was perfect. Thanks for writing it! I really enjoyed it. (Coulson is not dead!)

I love it,
and so wish that Coulson isnt dead.
| StrictlySomething chapter 1 . 9/7/2012
Very nice. Good ol' Coulson, he's been around since the beginning.

Yep, Steve's bit made me tear up a bit.
I feel the same way as you do, about hating that they killed off Phil—he was with them from the start, beginning with Tony—but if you think about it, Earth would have been in Loki's hands. The Avengers crew was pulled together and decided to work together *because* of Coulson, to Avenge him.
But still... #CoulsonLives!
Did you miss Bruce? D: Or maybe I just missed his part...

I know how you feel. Avengers had me finally really liking Phil and then they promptly killed him. *shakes fist* And then Whedon and Hiddleston are such devils that they made me like Loki, too. Tsk.
Anyhoo, the way you captured everyone was positively brilliant. Each of them was just as they should be. The thoughts and feelings portrayed were what real people would think and feel. Even though we could only "hear" what Coulson was thinking, I could perfectly see what was going on with everyone else. And the reactions, well, you took them with those and brought our favorite team even more to life. I imagine that that's exactly how one would wake up after an injury like that.
Also, the scene with Cap made me cry.
Aaaaaaaaaand yay shwarma!
