    Summary

    What's a guy to do when he's been exiled from his homeworld for doing the right thing, especially when everyone else in the universe believes he's a badass who kicks ass and will tap any ass? Clint Barton had better figure it out soon or he may find himself caught up in a story bigger than his, dragged into an origin story that takes him in a completely different direction than he ever dreamed of, one that just might land him in the lap of a man who can accept him as he is.

    A space opera told as a fictionalized account of Clint Barton's personal logs in the latter half of the 29th century. Space battles, corporate espionage, questionable motives, bad decisions, and sex ... so much sex ... may just lead Clint to find where he fits in a crazy, fast-changing universe.

    This is part of my sexuality series: unlike the others which are all one-shots, in this story, I'm playing at a societal level, wondering just what a world where sex has only two rules (consent and age), spirituality is deep, fighting skills are legendary, and peace is the first option might look like. Wish me luck.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Really just amazing, exploring so many subjects with such a deft hand.

    (Although I don't think the comments on drinking and consent are well-considered.)

    This is an incredible work that I don't even feel equipped to describe properly. It's an excellent novel, multi-layered and yet never bogged down under its own weight. It's leaving me gesturing helplessly at the screen because it's too much for my powers. Just READ IT. You will not be sorry.

    Summary

    "Phil Coulson was formally diagnosed at 27. He realized he was queer at 36.

    He'd known he was different well before that. But, that wasn't a problem. Different was his norm."

    Summary

    “I jump into stuff,” he said. “Leap first, think later. And I’ve always seen things better from a distance. Guess I don't have to tell you that.

    “So when you wanted to keep us on the QT, I assumed it was to keep the gossip down, so no one would think I was a way to get to you or that I was sleeping my way to a level five. I got too close, too fast to see that the reason you didn't want to tell anyone is that you just weren't that into me.”
