Phil — where the hell are you, man? Let us know if you’re all right, or if there’s anything we can do to help. HQ’s freaking the fuck out.
Word count: 4k
Characters/pairings: Phil Coulson
Warnings: Major Character Death
Rec notes: This fic is done entirely in email and forum posts to wonderful effect. In his downtime, when Coulson wasn’t being a government spook, he ran a forum dedicated to all things Captain America. And because he was a government spook, details of his death and involvement in the Battle of New York aren’t exactly public record. Everything, from the rising panic of his closer friends to their decision to find out more about him and hold their own private memorial service is incredibly emotional, right down to the very end.
