I once read a story that paired Clint Barton with Phil Coulson, and it opened with Barton grieving over Coulson's death at Loki's hands. Barton was hiding in air vents because he didn't want to interact with anyone. Maria Hill let him in on Coulson's recovery in Tahiti, and the two men kept in touch with video chats, speaking to each other in sign language.
While Barton's waiting for Coulson to return, Steve Rogers confides to Barton that he's gay, and Barton becomes Rogers's confidante and eventually his very patient boyfriend as Rogers struggles to accept himself. This is all done with Coulson's knowledge and approval, and when Coulson returns, he and Barton work together to help Rogers become comfortable with the idea of a gay triad.
I cannot find this story anywhere now. Could you guys help me, or at least tell me of a more appropriate website to ask for a fic search?
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
