Jeremy Renner’s arms appreciation post
Phil takes this picture
he takes this picture a couple of weeks after first meeting ~Hawkeye~, after going dark and trusting a gut instinct that could well have ended his career
he takes this picture after Clint Barton wakes up next to him one morning and says ‘alright, I’m in’
he takes this picture after kissing Clint and asking if he’s sure
he takes this picture after Clint shrugs and says, ‘why not?’
he takes this picture after Clint laughs and says ‘so take the damn picture already’
he takes this picture and sends it in, and Clint hooks a foot around Phil’s knee to pull him into his lap again
Flashback scene ▬ Despite all the stories, Clint didn’t join SHIELD voluntarily. SHIELD found him, after having followed his progress as Jacques DuQuesnes’ and Buck Chisholm’s partner in crime, when one of their GTAs went wrong, causing all of them to get shot. Giving Clint the choice to join or die, fell onto Coulson’s shoulders, who eventually went on to become Clint’s handler at SHIELD.
Yes! So good.
