This is just so bitter sweet. I watched the first Avenger film over and over and hoped this tiny shot could fit the bill.

Miss Instant Noodles chapter 1 . 4/22/2013
Oh gosh dammit. I've found your Avengers stories and can't get enough of them! This one was particularly touching, since I find Coulson's fanboyism over Steve really adorable.

Omigod, air, need air, laughing too hard- that was brilliant! I absolutely loved it. The "Natasha's stabbed their informant instead of seduced him" line had me in giggles, but really it was the reversal of "I watched you while you were sleeping" that got me. Thanks! Favorite quotes:

"We found him."

When Phil gets the call he is ecstatic. Only in his wildest (and most private) dreams had he ever thought Captain America would be found. He remembers his childhood, chasing the other neighborhood kids around with his garbage can shield pretending that he was the Star Spangled Man. He remembers dressing up as Captain America for every single Halloween, and his mother's exasperation that he didn't want to be anything else.

There was never any other option. Sure there were other superheroes, but they weren't real. Captain America had fought the Nazis, and not just the Hitler trained Nazis, but the crazy Schmidt trained magic wielding Nazis. Captain America had put his country first and looked death in the eye, and how could his mother want him to have a different role model when the one he had was perfect?


The corners of Phil's eyes burn and he pretends, even though he's the only one in the room that's awake, that he isn't crying. This is Captain America lying before him. The man with a plan. The man who risked his life to save his best friend and then risked his life again to save his country. There was nothing too small or too big for him to take on, and Phil had adopted that mentality as he trained to become an agent.

Everything is important. Every tiny detail and every big picture. People mocked him for his attention to detail, for what they labeled his anal retentiveness, for his need for everything to be perfect, but all that, he learned from Captain America. That's not to say everything always went smoothly, but that's where quick thinking came in. Whenever Phil finds himself in a tricky situation—Clint's been made, Natasha's stabbed their informant instead of seduced him—he takes a deep breath, reminds himself that not all of Captain America's plans went off without a hitch, and goes to work trying to clean the mess up.


Steve and Clint battle for the most time spent at Phil's bedside, and the only person they'll relinquish the chair for is each other. Steve takes the day shift, Clint the night shift, and everyone knows better than to disturb them.


Steve grins and reaches a hand out before Phil can say anything. "The name's Steve Rogers. It's an honor to meet you, sir."

Phil frowns and hesitates before he shakes Steve's hand. "I don't have amnesia. I was just in a coma."

"I know," Steve says, grin widening. "I watched you while you were sleeping."

Twin spots of red appear on Phil's cheeks.

Awwwww! I think I just left this same review but Steve is so cute! I couldn't decide which was my favorite, that Steve actually made fun of Phil for his Epic Awkward Fanboying or that he signed the (vintage!) card set. A great little story!
