this makes me want a fic where baby Phil has one of those little kiddie cars -one of these-
and since he’s an only child he’s EXTREMELY POSSESSIVE over it. Maybe, cause he’s a kid, he calls it Lola and thinks it’s his actual friend.
Anyway he goes to playschool and there’s one there too, and he claims it as his own and stands guard over it so that no one else touches it because it is HIS, dangit. HIS LOLA.
Until Clint, also tiny and adorable, comes over and asks if Phil wants to play, and he’s the only kid who’s not scared off by Phil’s scowls and ‘don’t touch!!’ grumblings so Phil’s like… ok, I can show you my car I guess? BUT DON’T TOUCH. And Clint politely listens to Phil take him through all of Lola’s ‘features’ and then Phil says if he wants, Clint could take a test drive maybe and then BABBU PHIL PUSHES CLINT AROUND IN THE TINY CARR
and his mom, who knows about Phil’s attachment to this car (and curses the day her sister bought it for him) and how hard he finds socialising with other kids, comes by to pick him up and nearabout stops breathing when she sees Phil and some little blond kid pretending to be mechanics (with tiny tool belts and hard hats?!) together <3
OH MY GOD. DED FROM CUTE.
