I think it is time for us to have a day of the Good Ship Capsicoul! 

So hows about on July 6th, whenever that is for your time zone, let’s post drawings, fictions, reading recommendations, mixes, videos, photos, and whatever else your heart desires to celebrate Phil and Steve?

Let’s tag it with #capsicoulday and have a great time?

What do you say, solider?

If you had told Phil a few years ago that he would soon be in a relationship with Captain America, he wouldn’t have believed it. But that was the truth, as amazing as it sounds. He could now come home after a hard day at work, or a casual Sunday afternoon after walking the dogs, and find Steve in his kitchen, cooking his favorite salad just for him. He could just get behind him and wrap his arms around him, and Steve would hold his head to kiss him for the best kind of welcome. Sometimes Phil still didn’t believe his chance but it didn’t matter as long as Steve was there.

Every time they won a battle, either Captain America himself or the Avengers, people were happy and cheered for their heroes. They would congratulate them, show their gratitude and give them presents sometimes to thank them. But nothing was more important to Steve than the greetings of his lover, his one and only Phil Coulson, super agent and tiny Avenger in the shadows. His hugs made all the pain and exhaustion go away and when Captain still had to deal with the wounds closing or the broken bones slowly healing, he could count on Phil’s touch to make him feel much better.

Capsicoul Recommendation: Ultimate Spider Man Episode 23

So, in Ultimate Spider-Man, an animated TV show that you can see on Netflix, Phil Coulson is a regular character helping train Spider-Man and other teenage superheroes. He also is acting principal of their school.

If you aren’t big into the Spider-Man scene (Lord knows I am not), you may not be aware that not only do the Avengers show up fairly often on the show, but that in Episode 23 “Not a Toy” Captain America comes to teach these kids how to fight better as a team.

But the absolute best thing about this episode is it has many delightful Capsicoul moments!

It’s just a few scenes of them together (most of the episode is Spider-Man and the Captain trying to get his shield back from Doom), but I was so surprised about how shippy the scenes are.

I recommend watching it, and flailing with me when near the beginning, Steve and Phil have to go “talk” in his office, leaving the kids alone with the shield. 

The air was cool, the night turning cold after the long ride. They had stopped by Brooklyn Bridge to watch its lights in silence, not saying a word for a moment. After a while, Steve turned around and took Phil in his arms.

“Please… I love you so much… promise I’ll never do it again, please… forgive me?” he murmured.

Phil rested his forehead against Steve’s with a  sigh and slipped his hands under the warm leather jacket of his husband.

“I forgive you…”
