Title: Personal Days Author: TigerDragon Rating: M Genre: Romance Status: Complete Fandom: The Avengers/Agents of SHIELD Pairings: Phil Coulson/The Cellist, Clint Barton/Phil Coulson/Natasha Romanov, Natasha Romanov/The Cellist, Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov Summary: Phil Coulson is a mature, respectable adult with a top level security clearance and a day job that keeps the free world safe from evil, aliens, destruction and global-scale incompetence. He is not the kind of guy who just falls for a girl out of the blue one day without a very good reason. At least, that's what he'd tell you. Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2325551 This fic is a mostly true-to-life depiction of polyamorous relationship dynamics (with some artistic licence for a bunch of spies being, uh, spies). It's not a how-to guide (for that, I recommend More than Two), but it is an accurate representation of some very complicated, messy, and, of course, fun relationship dynamics. The Cellist depicted here is not the same one as the one in Agents of SHIELD (thankfully - what a boring character). If this sounds like your thing, then I highly recommend this story. If it doesn't - or if the pairings list turns you off - then please skip it. This is very much a YMMV fic. For me, it is a 5/5.
