Summary: Based on a prompt on the Avengers Kink Meme.
On his 25th birthday, Tony Stark finds his soul-mate, Phil Coulson. But his reputation is the ultimate barrier, and Phil rejects him.
When SHIELD becomes interested in Tony fifteen years later, they send their best agent to him. And then the Avengers Initiative happens. Now working together, Phil realises just how big a mistake he’s made. But will Tony ever forgive him?
Why You Should Read This: Just so you know: NO CHARACTER DEATH! hurt feelings yes, death no!This is the first I’ve ever read of this particular pairing, but it works. Mistakes are made on both sides. Timeline wise it takes getting to the Avengers movie before misunderstandings start to get corrected.
