Why You Should Read This:
This is in great fix it fic that deals with the end of The Avengers, but was written pre-Winter Soldier. So it does not follow the events from that movie.
It’s a moving story of what happens to the characters post Avengers, with a healthy dose of violence, spying and car chases.
There is a brief scene of light Steve/Clint, but it’s very brief.
