sketch commission for immoral-crow who wanted Clint and Coulson’s first kiss after the events in Junction. Bonus story below haha
Their first “real” kiss happens two months after the Junction incident. After Coulson kiss and ran both the boys gave each other space to think about it. Well okay it probably would have only been a few weeks but things got busy. The Avengers were being called one way and Coulson was required the other with a new team he was molding. It put a strain on both of them and even their teams could tell something was off. Then they’re both called into one mission, there’s a group of villians attacking downtown and they need everyone on the scene to keep the damage isolated. It’s rough. There’s injuries. But they all survive. Then Clint hears that Coulson took a hit meant for one of the junior agents and is in medical. (Sitwell might have made it seem worse on purpose but seriously, they’re all tired and two of his best friends have been PINING). So Clint gets to medical and sees that Coulson isn’t hurt minus some scrapes and bruises and its all he can do to grab the man and kiss the hell out of him.
They have a lot to talk about and its a bumpy road because you can’t ever forget knowing how alternate versions of yourselves ended. But its worth it.
