Title: the one where Tony finds out about Coulson
Fandom: Avengers, Gen
Rating: PG
Notes: In what will hopefully be the beginning of a series of ficlets by myself and the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] erunamiryene, HERE IT IS. My first Avengers fic. The first thing I've written in months and months. Movie spoilers, obviously.

Steve Rogers looks like he wants to punch something. Which is, you know, not a usual thing. But as the good-old-fashioned Cap leaves Fury's debriefing room, his jaw is definitely clenched in something like anger and his right hand is definitely in a fist. He walks past Tony without speaking, which, considering all the recent saving-the-world-together bonding, is a little strange on top of uncharacteristically discourteous. Captain America is a total Boy Scout, right?

"Stark!" Fury, from inside the room, doesn't sound too happy either.

"Yeah, right here. Did you kick a puppy or something? Cap's not looking too happy. He might actually be about to punch something. Should we be concerned? I actually feel a little concerned about this, which is bothersome because I do prefer to keep the focus on myself."

"Take a seat, Mr. Stark."

"Okay," he leans back in his chair, puts his hands up. "You gonna fill me in or what."

"Agent Coulson is alive."

"What? Wow. You are - you're a bastard. You totally lied, didn't you - "

"I did what I thought was best, Mr. Stark."

"Oh, yeah, sure, just fake a death so we all feel bad and team up to save the world. Brilliant, really. Manipulative and incredible and - oh my god, I can't believe Steve didn't punch you."

Fury responds a tight sort of pseudo-smile that is not happy, but not apologetic either.

"Are we done here? Can I be done? I mean, I'm sure our little team will be fine - we figured it out, we work well together - but you are so not my favorite person right now. And the debriefing - I'll just have Jarvis send you the play-by-play. Will that work for you? Or do you have some more master manipulator spy bullshit to pull."

"No, we're done."

"Good. I'd like to see Coulson now."

- - -

"So, it's true."

"Which part, exactly?"

"The 'you're alive' part, obviously. Does this mean I have to start calling you Phil, since you died and I actually cared and may have started to look up your cellist girlfriend to maybe let her - "

"You may still refer to me as Agent Coulson."

"Good to know. Are you sure you're alive?"


"Not a Life Model Decoy or anything like that?"

"Is that actually a thing?"


- - -

"Does the rest of the team know?"

"I thought I'd leave that to you and the Captain."

"Good call. Not everyone is going to NOT punch you."

I KNOW RIGHT. Saw the movie again last night and I swear I have all the FEELINGS. Which is awesome, because I got to snark a little with Tony!
