A) How they Met: Darcy of course met Phil in New Mexico. She got to know him in the days after the Thor incident while he was trying to bribe Jane into working for SHIELD. She acted as his rebound for his cellist until negotiations between Jane and SHIELD fell apart and Phil moved onto other things. The break up was amicable and Darcy was highly upset to learn from Sitwell about Phil’s death during the invasion of New York.
B) Their First Date: Their relationship in New Mexico was more about sex then dating, so neither Darcy of Phil count any of that as their first date. Instead they count the day he finally got to reveal himself as alive to the avengers in the aftermath of the Winter Solider’s attack. During the Avengers’ uproar over being lied to, Phil had looked a little overwhelmed. So Darcy had asked if he wanted to sneak away for coffee. He had.
C) Their First Kiss: Phil has possessive tendencies. All of their early dates were escaping the tower by getting coffee at the same coffee shop. The cashier took to flirting with Darcy and on the day he asked for her phone number, Phil finally snapped and kissed her. (Darcy later told Aaron thank you and gave Clint his number).
D) Sleeping: Darcy always goes to bed first. Phil tends to stay up later doing paperwork but the thought of her in their bed always pulls him away eventually. When he gets to bed he always curls around her, and puts up with the face full of hair.
E) Kids: Phil and Darcy never have children, they never even discuss the topic. Privately in their own heads they both don’t want to bring a defenseless baby into the chaos that is their lives.
F) Arguments: Phil and Darcy never argued about their age difference. Phil was well aware that he would probably only get five years with Darcy before his work killed him, instead they argued about little things. Like Darcy’s habit of leaving a wet towel on the floor and Phil’s inability to come to bed at a decent hour.
