ATTF: Comm Annibirthday Party!  
Welcome to the [community profile] be_compromised annibirthday party post!

If you hail from Livejournal, welcome back, it's wonderful to see you here. If you're new to our community, from Dreamwidth and elsewhere, HELLO! Pull up a bar stool, have a read of our Welcome and Rules Post while we pour you a drink, and make yourself at home.

Today our community, as originally created on LJ, is 4 5 years old with 2,034 entries and an amazing 39,628 comments. That’s an incredible amount of promptathons, exchanges, challenges, discussions, and a HUGE outpouring of creativity, not to mention how positive, welcoming, friendly, and just plain awesome you all are. Today is also a new annibirthday of sorts for us as we move to Dreamwidth.

To get things started properly over here and to celebrate in true [community profile] be_compromised fashion we're going to have ourselves a good old-fashioned getting-to-know-you community friending party post! Friend the new Dreamwidth version of the comm, find LJ friends on Dreamwidth or find ways of staying in touch, meet new friends, add each other as friends if you like or don't and just chat here instead, no pressure, just PARTY. Free drinks at the bar, grab yourselves a slice of cake, and for goodness’ sake be careful with the pass the parcel, someone probably put weaponry in there.

To join the fun copy and paste the below into a comment and go wild:






And from all your mods: HAPPY COMMUNITY ANNIBIRTHDAY!


Things to remember:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share:gsparkle on lj, dreamwidth, and ao3 (though I'll soon be deleting lj)
MCU, comics, or all the things? All of the above!
What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read? I saw Guardians vol. 2 24 hours ago and I'm still emotional about it!!
When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely? Somewhere between that river in Egypt and an alternate universe/timeline
What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things? I say this every time but FAKE DATING! My favorite trope ever. Otherwise, I like AUs, team and mission fics, great descriptions and character insights; I love well-wielded sarcasm, Natasha finding strength in vulnerability, and a good dose of romance :)
You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist? oh jeez that's difficult... something with Kate, she needs more love
Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one: *gulp* okay I guess I'd say all the magic I have known because I probably wrote that in two days it just came to me and figuring out which dessert applied to each Avenger was really fun! That or this ongoing thing because I think it's some of my best work but also I'm out of prompts and need suggestions!
Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on:
“She’s in Venice,” Phil tells him; Clint has been chasing the faceless Black Widow through Europe for two years now, though, and he’s learned better than to take the certainty in his brow seriously.
“If she’s not there,” he warns, “I want a vacation.”
“She’s there,” Phil says. “I promise.”
She's not there.
(Slightly longer than three sentences, sorry, but Clint meets a gorgeous redhead while on vacation from chasing the Black Widow.)
Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything): I'm sure y'all already know we together make a city but it's my favorite fic and what inspired me to finally get a tattoo so!
A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way? Maria, Natasha, and Pepper on a road trip post Civil War where they leave all the boys behind and have an idiot-free week at the beach. I guess Wanda can come, too!
List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha: aside from these two, I've written one Bucky/Sam and a few Steve/Maria (JOIN US); my best friend and I are probably two of the twelve people worldwide who think Steve and Matt Murdock would be a great couple; and my original MCU otp is Tony/Pepper. Plus, GOTG 2 just made me a brand new Peter/Gamora fan! Check out my ao3 bookmarks for suggestions, since there are like... a bunch of stories I like :)
Any other fandoms you're currently into: I watch Brooklyn Nine Nine, Supergirl, Superstore, and Crazy Ex Girlfriend, but I don't write/read fic for any of those. I read some Star Wars stuff though!
What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend? I only have a dreamwidth to participate here, so invite you to follow me on my tumblr if you have one! I'd love it if anyone wanted to talk headcanons and marvel in general on the reg!!!
In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win? a book of marvel-themed cocktails!
Anything extra to add? YAY DREAMWIDTH!
inkvoices[personal profile] inkvoices on May 6th, 2017 03:19 am (UTC)
Guardians 2!!!

finding strength in vulnerability - yes please

I've not read much fic recently - busy offline, meh - so I'm behind with your ongoing thing fic, sorry, I need to catch up with that! And sign me up for Clint meets a gorgeous redhead while on vacation from chasing the Black Widow :D

I couldn't rec We Together, because you already had ;) What tattoo did you get?

Steve and Matt Murdock...hmm, Irish Catholic, Steve has the history of being little!Steve and never backs down from a fight. Go on, convince me *grins*. Tony/Pepper <3

Ooo, I started reading some Star Wars last year. There's just something about the Finn, Poe, Rey fics that make me go 'aww' a lot. Maybe because they're all recovery and friendship? But yes. I had no intentions of going down the Star Wars fandom rabbit hole, but the aww got me.

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share: I'm inkvoices on LJ, Dreamwidth, and AO3. My Dreamwidth is currently blank because I've been working on setting [community profile] be_compromised up on Dreamwidth first. I'll probably be using both LJ and Dreamwidth for a while for my personal comm.

MCU, comics, or all the things? I've read enough comics now to say both, but still mainly MCU. Fraction & Aja's Hawkeye though!

What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read? Guardians of the Galaxy volume 2 and I enjoyed it so. damn. much.

When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely? All of the above! Although I tend to write AU.

What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things? Sass and fun dialogue, team-families, marvelous ladies, twists I did not see coming, representation, all the AUs.

You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist? More Marvel themed clothing available in the UK would be fantastic. But anything? Hmm... could we have some StarkTech?

Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one: ten times as long (to put yourselves back together). It's recent, it was fun to write, I'm kind of proud of how many words it ended up being, and I'd like to write more in this...is it a 'verse if it's not-yet-jossed future canon? *grins*

Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on:
Although ice cream.
Ice cream is a wonderful sin. And vodka.

Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything): the artwork from the life of bucky barnes instagram is gorgeous and the accompanying story fragments are sweet too (background Clint/Natasha). In fanfic, I haven't yet recovered from [personal profile] franztastisch's threesome (Clint/Natasha/Bucky) fic Here Your Love Has Been. Steamy with so many feeeeelings.

A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way? Jane Foster hitches a lift with the Guardians of the Galaxy, with Darcy and Eric along for the ride, because the guy who is supposed to be her boyfriend has gone missing somewhere in space again. And maybe it starts out as going to find him, because if the mountain won't come to Mohammad...but there's so much space and Jane is fascinated with it all, and Thor is practically a god, he can take care of himself, right? Whilst Jayne and her friends are exploring the galaxy and maybe helping save it this one time...

List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha: Kate Bishop, America Chavez, pretty much all the MCU good guys (and SHIELD Agents, that's a seperate category to 'good', right?), Agent Carter, Agents of SHIELD (but I've very behind with the show), Daredevil (same, and I need to watch Jessica Jones), I'm enjoying Jennifer in the latest comic run of Hulk, Ms Marvel, Carol Danvers... And I have nostaligia for the X Men. For pairings; I'm not a shipper when it comes to reading. If someone writes something that makes me believe in a pairing then I'm along for the ride.

Any other fandoms you're currently into: I'm only writing Avengers/Marvel at the moment, but I read in a bunch of fandoms - whatever strikes my fancy and I'm familiar with. I'm really slow with tv shows (no, really), but I'm better at films, and I LOVE books. So: Firefly, Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Orphan Black, The Martian, X Men, I just finished reading The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater and that had me searching for fic because I needed more of those characters, previously a lot of Harry Potter and I occassionally dip back into that...

What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend? I don't update my journal anywhere near frequently and am most likely to be found on this comm. When I do update it's usually reviews of books and films, or fic, sometimes icons and graphics. I put offline life updates behind cuts, and often those are convention or author event type posts. I like following people who post similiar things, photos of their adventures, recs (I love recs), and who like having a chat in the comments.

In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win? a be_compromised bookmark, one of those little gifts inbetween layers before you get to the main prize, and I use that bookmark until it falls apart.

Anything extra to add?

I second the recs for Life of Bucky Barnes and anything by Franzie (Although I want more of the Wide Awake series too! It's awful having to choose between two amazing stories by the same author!)

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share: LJ is [livejournal.com profile] feralletters DW is this name and my AO3 is [archiveofourown.org profile] lostinthefire

MCU, comics, or all the things? MCU mostly, I am horrible at reading comics, even though I want to get better.

What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read? I've actually not been nesting in much Marvel right now. I'm hoping to get backin touch with fandom when I go see GotG at some point soon.

When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely? I'm honestly good with all the things. I love these two so much, that I am happy to nest in their dynamic in most flavors and settings.

What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things? AUs, kink, trust, slice of life (though that life doesn't always have to be what you'd think), characterization/identity porn and just...a lot of differetn stuff. XD

You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist? Uhm....Oh gosh, I have no idea. XD

Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one: know that I don't regret you. I really liked writing this and I thought it was kind of neat.

Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on: I am poking at a nonbinary Natasha thing. I can't figure out what it is going to be exactly, if it's going to be a bunch of drabbles, actual fic or what but i is a ting I intend to do at some point soon.

Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything): with your finger on the world

A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way? It's funny that you mention this because my partner and I have a running joke about the MCU kids and a Winnebago on a constant move because no one can decide where the hell they're actualy going.

List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha: Bucky, Wanda, Peggy, Steve and Sam

Any other fandoms you're currently into: Hannibal, Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant stuff, fairytales and myths and a little bit of Hamilton.

What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend? I update at least twice a week, usually more. I try and post fic when I remember to, though right now I am working on a lot of original stuff. I do a post every Friday encouraging people to come talk about accomplishments and things they've done and uh...Yeah, I don't know. I babble a lot, so if that's your thing, come on over.

In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win? Tbh, I have no idea what pass the parcel even is? *failcat is fail*
alphaflyer[personal profile] alphaflyer on May 8th, 2017 02:56 am (UTC)

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share:
kiss_me_cassie on here, lj (stagnant), ao3 & twitter. cassiesinsanity on tumblr.

MCU, comics, or all the things?
First hand knowledge of the MCU only, but I read so much stuff and see so many random panels of comics I now mush all the things together. I'm talented like that. ;)

What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read?
Guardians of the Galaxy. Or was it Winter Soldier?

PSA ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are in the US, FX is playing all the Marvel things all weekend, so go glut yourself. :)

When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely?
All of the above? Depends on my whims. (Although recent works would indicate lots of OT3, I really do bounce around on what is and is not fannish reality.)

What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things?
Team as family is my biggest kink ever. I'm also big on hopeful endings. And smut is always fun. ;)

You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist?
All the Lego ever. Also, Black Widow clothing. Not just with her image (although... YEAH) but the stuff she'd wear. I want to BE Natasha.

Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one:
Oh, I hate self-recs. I'm horrible at it. But, um, maybe Persuasive Lips? Because it was challenging to write for Gecko (but also fun!) and because it's really ambiguous about who/where they are in terms of knowing each other, canon, etc.

Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on:
From a fic for Enigma...
He made a small noise of frustration when she did finally withdraw her hand, but she made up for the loss by stroking the length of him through his jeans, making him moan again and push hard against her palm. He barely noticed when she flicked open the button on his pants or worked his zipper down. It wasn't until her small, hot hand pushed past his boxers and circled his bare flesh that it registered and by then it was too late.

Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything):
Why are you making me choose things?! I haven't had enough coffee this morning. ;) Um... well, ANYthing by Alphaflyer, but currently, September by Enigma as a great non-shippy character piece on Natasha and Tony.

A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way?
GIVE ME ALL THE ROADTRIPS WITH ANY CHARACTERS GOING ANYWHERE. Seriously, I am so easy to please.

List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha:
Can't. It bounces around too much from one day to the next. Currently, I'm on a Tony kick (with Pepper, with Team, in his own head) but last week I was all about Laura, so... SHRUG.

Any other fandoms you're currently into:
Seriously into? Nope. I still dabble in reading/ogling a lot of previous fandom stuff (Leverage, West Wing, etc) and I've for a vague interest in the newer Star Wars & some Star Trek, but not enough that I seek it out regularly.

What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend?
I vent a lot about petty things in real life to get them off my chest and not let them effect, well, real life? I will also squee about random fannish things and lament about my lack of writing skill. I'm also open to random chatting at any time... I've made some amazing friends through fandom in the past (gulp) 15-20 years. (PS: Please note I am an old. Even if I act like I'm 12 most days.)

In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win?That useless piece of crockery no one wanted, but it's ok, I'll find something to put in it. *g*

Anything extra to add?I can't believe I've been a part of this comm for two years now! You all are AWESOME and I'm so glad I've gotten to know so many of you!

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share: findthesea over here and on LJ! I won't really use DW much personally because I've stopped actively updating LJ except for this community, whoops -- but I spend a lot of my time on Tumblr (isjustprogress) or twitter (andibeth82). Twitter is my personal one and it's locked so if you add me, let me know somehow!

MCU, comics, or all the things? ALL THE THINGS.

What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read? GOTG2. And technically I caught the end of WS last night in bed.

When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely? Camping out at the farm and sometimes by a river in Egypt. My shipping tends to be whatever I feel like at the moment. I love my OT3 but I love my assassins as I knew them for so many years and that will never die.

What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things? OH GOD. Fake married/dating, slow burn, mission fic, domestic stuff, angst, AUs and team fic...I love Clint being vulnerable but confident, Natasha being dorky but serious.

You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist? This is a funny question for me to answer right now for a lot of reasons but I will say give me a Laura action figure. I'm the only one that would buy it, but I don't care.

Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one: Oh god...I'll say my OT3 series and when we're there we'll belong (http://archiveofourown.org/series/325550). I'm aware OT3 is not everyone's cup of tea, especially in this community, but these stories were my heart and soul and, uh, as you can see from the word count, they were a really large part of me and I just want everyone to read them and like them. Plus I'm proud of my writing.

Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on:
You have heart, Loki says when he comes through the portal and presses a glowing scepter to Laura’s chest, right under her ribcage.

This Laura looks at Loki with eyes that burn blue, and thinks of Cooper and Clint before she blocks them out completely. This Laura remembers, before Loki takes hold of her brain completely, what she was told in training.

(from my Clint/Laura role reversal fic where Laura is the one that works at SHIELD and Clint is the normal guy)

Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything): I read gsparkle's we are for each other for the first time last year and the writing is AMAZING and it really stuck with me.

A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way? It's a girls trip, obviously - Natasha and Maria and Wanda and Pepper and probably Laura. And they have the best time. It's kind of like a weird GOTG team-up thing where they just go all out.

List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha: I love Wanda so much, y'all. Also America/Kate, and Kate Bishop in general. Comics-wise, I'm totally getting back into my X-23 obsession thanks to Logan and re-reading all my comics.

Any other fandoms you're currently into: Marvel is the main one, honestly, but I'm DEEP into Hamilton. Also, fandoms I'm strong into but that I don't necessarily write for: Supergirl, The X-Files, Xena, LOST

What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend? I don't post much here anymore, but follow me on Tumblr because that's where I post all my fic/flailings mostly! Or Twitter. Both links are above. I'm happy to squee with new fandom friends. :) Oh, also, I mod this community with some very great and lovely gals!

In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win? A set of Clintasha shirts, obviously.

Anything extra to add? I LOVE THIS BAR <3
alphaflyer[personal profile] alphaflyer on May 8th, 2017 03:06 am (UTC)
Clintasha shirts - I only ever saw and owned one and it shrunk, so I had to give it to my daughter. Tragedy!!

One of these days I will read your OT3s, I promise - because I love your writing so much. Give me time... :P

PS: Can't wait to hear about the new job!!

Going out on a limb here - before I put my own anniversary piece together and comment on other people's (which may take some time as I'm currently in Rome and, you know, touristing takes time....)

So. Here it is. Aren't we Five? (I joined in October 2012, and this is 2017...) :P

Whatever - HAPPY ANNIBIRTHDAY TO MY FAVOURITE COMM!!!
inkvoices[personal profile] inkvoices on May 8th, 2017 04:30 pm (UTC)
Oh for... I managed the coding and yet failed at counting to five *face palm*. Yep we were created May 6th 2012. Well spotted Hawkeye *grins*.

(Also hope you had fun times in Rome!)

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share: I'm alphaflyer pretty much everywhere. Sometimes with capital A, and on FFN I think there's a space between the alpha and the flyer?

MCU, comics, or all the things?Mostly MCU, with a side of comics and occasionally a mash-up/mixed salad...

What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read?Guardians 2! It was fun, if not as original and mind-blowing as the first. Lots of Nebula feels...

When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely? Anywhere at all, with a slight preference for Egypt.

What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things? Banter, snark, competence porn. I'm also finally ready to admit that I love fresh takes on old tropes ...

You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist? A line of Natasha's leather jackets!

Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one: This one: Show a Little Faith. Why? Because it was my first AU (1930s dust bowl), and I really like the tone I worked out in this. And I was somewhat disappointed with the response - maybe people got turned off by the over-long title (which I since regretted)?

Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on:

...........

"Anything else?"

Patel clears his throat, his eyes a little wild.

“Don’t expect him to ever remember to pick up the milk on the way home, but he’ll give you a blow job that’ll make you see the moons of Jupiter.”

Well, shit. Bobbi. He smiles fondly. When things were good between them, they were really good…

“You do realize they knew you were listening in, Patel.”

........

Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything): Here's an old favourite that I re-read the other day: The Observable Universe by Sarea Okelani. Classic Clintasha slow burn, from an outside POV.

A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way? I think I would love to see Tony on the Milano, en route to ... well, pretty much anywhere. Thanos' lair, maybe?
"And what does that do?" "Don't touch that. It's the flux capacitor."

List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha: I adore Darcy (including in Clint/Darcy formation), Maria Hill and/or Pepper being awesome

Any other fandoms you're currently into: None, really. Turns out, I'm pretty monogamous when it comes to fandoms (besides, who has the time?) I still have a fondness for my first one, ST: Voyager, though, and may revisit my major WIP there this summer.

What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend? They'll need to be willing to put up with picspam from my trips and brags about my kidlet ... In turn, I look for people who occasionally engage in comment conversations (I'm not too fond on the void, and comment on people's posts when I can).

In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win?
A Nick Fury Funko! (Because I like writing SHIELD....)

Anything extra to add? I LOVE THIS COMM AND THE PEOPLE IN IT WITH ALL MY HEART.

WHAT IS THAT WIP I NEED IT.

I loved Show A Little Faith! It's wonderful. The atmosphere you created was brilliant. I could see exactly what you were describing. :D

You know, there is an entire GotG run that's just them and Tony and it's supposed to be pretty good. It starts with GotG: Cosmic Avengers by Brian Michael Bendis.

Also, The Observable Universe it the best. <3

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share: I'm [personal profile] topaz119, [livejournal.com profile] topaz119, [archiveofourown.org profile] topaz and [tumblr.com profile] topaz119. I'm pretty sure lj is going away once I get enough time to sort things out, and I mostly am all about the pretty pictures on tumblr, but fic gets announced everywhere.
MCU, comics, or all the things? All the things, and for longer than I care to think about.
What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read? GotG2--so fun!
When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely? I pretty much go for all the things--I blur canon and au together recklessly, because where's the fun in not?
What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things? I am all about found families and food as love and that blurring line between friends and lovers.
You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist? First, I would make this ridiculous Event go away and restore Cap to Cap, and then I would have Loungefly add a Hawkeye design to their handbag collection, so my Black Widow purse wouldn't be lonely, and then I'd have everyone who does fun fannish clothes sell bigger sizes.
Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one: small town girl is my series that's the backstory to the farm. I've written Clint with just about everybody in the MCU, so I figured I could keep with canon, too.
Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on: This is from a Clintasha Ghostbusters fusion that I have been poking at for ages and ages... Clint is the semi-damsel-in-distress & Natasha is one of the Ghostbusters (along with Maria, Bobbie & Jane as the brains.)
Clint was usually pretty good about waiting out the silences--it was kind of a professional necessity--but since the other end of the silence was in charge of his personal well-being, he might have lost his cool enough to break first and say, “Look, I, uh, get that you probably don’t need me along, but--”

“Not only do I not need you,” Red said, “there is a non-trivial chance I’m going to have to pull your ass out of what could be literal fire.”

“I will do exactly what you tell me,” Clint assured her, holding his hands up in peace. “I am not one of those guys who has to prove how big his dick is, I just--” He stopped for a second, hoping the right words would show up in his brain. “The kids I work with… This place is as good of a home as I can make it, and it might not be anything great, but it’s all they’ve got.”

It wasn’t all Clint had, but it was close. He didn’t feel like he needed to share that part, though.

It got quiet again, but Clint thought he might be getting a little less of the Freeze Rays from the driver’s seat. He decided he could be good with that.


Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything): you're gonna give your love to me by irnan, just because I love how vulnerable, yet in-character, Natasha is in this and I'm so happy she's happy by the end. (Also, I love her relationship with Laura here, too.)
A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way? I have actually written Clint and Natasha on a road trip (Come Near) and Clint and Darcy running all over the post CA: WS landscape (Chapter 3 of in deep with you darling) but the one that would be fun would be the Barton family (with Auntie Nat, of course) on the epic drive from Iowa to Orlando for fun times in Diagon Alley and the Land of Mickey.
List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha: I was originally an X-Men fan waaaay back in the day, Jean and Scott and Logan, and the start of Dark Phoenix, and now I do love Kate Bishop and the Young Avengers and Mockingbird and Sam!Cap and Black Panther. I also really have a blast with the animated Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heros.
Any other fandoms you're currently into: I adore Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, I'm having a resurgence of Harry Potter, and the Star Trek movies, and Star Wars is forever my favorite (I'm working my way through the Clone Wars and Rebels.)
What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend? Lately, I've mostly been posting about RL, b/c I'm terribly far behind in all my fannish interests. I will be trying to catch back up for the end of summer and DragonCon, so I don't have to pick between fun panels and being spoiled, but for now, woe.
In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win? More tchotkes for my desk!
Anything extra to add? I try to read daily but my commenting skills are sporadic at best, so please do not be alarmed if a random comment shows up long after you'd given me up for a sockpuppet account.
alphaflyer[personal profile] alphaflyer on May 8th, 2017 03:15 am (UTC)
I would LOVE to see a Barton-family-at-DisneyWorld from you! You know the place better than anyone and could do wonders having the kids and Clint taking it apart ...

I'm franztastisch on both here and LJ, CloutAtlas on Ao3, cloud--atlas on the tumblr I never update any more and @untweetablethor on twitter.

MCU, comics, or all the things?
ALL THE THINGS,

What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read?
I think it was the two latest Ms Marvel comics and the latest Kate Bishop Hawkeye. And then, obviously, Guardians vol. 2

When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely?
I'd like to pretend I'm fine with everything but that's a blatant lie. I'm really not a fan of the farm (but if you like it, go you!). I mostly hang out in AU Land, with trips to Egypt when the mood strikes.

What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things?
Clever plot, clever AUs and dystopias, sass, competence, diversity and amazing ladies, people behaving like people. I LOVE good spy stories, friends to lovers, and any of those forced situations that make people confront their feelings (share-a-bed, fake-married, pretend-couple etc. etc.)

You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist?
The ability to mail Nick Spencer the ashes of all your burned copies of Secret Empire Good quality, low cost Cap shields. Or a range of completely indulgent Avengers ball gowns because WHY THE HELL NOT.

Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one:
the shorter story, written for a prompt by sweetwatersong for one of our AU fests. And I (always) pick this because and I so fucking proud of that story. I'm proud of how it's written, how it fits together, how the characters are recognizable despite being devoid of their usual context, how good the plot it, how well the (pretentious I'll admit) stylistic choices worked and just... I can smell it, you know? Sometimes I reread it and marvel that I wrote it.

Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on:
From the Bucky POV sequel to my threesome fic:

“I’m an enigma,” Clint says happily. “An enigma wrapped in a mystery wrapped in – ”

“Bandages,” Natasha cuts in.


Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything):
You get three
> Yesterday Upon, the Stair by samalander
> the hurts of human life by actonbell
> We Were Emergencies by gyzym forever and always.

A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way?
Steve, Bucky and Peggy. But old Peggy. Old Peggy bossing Steve and Bucky around motels and roadside attractions across the entire lower 48.

List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha:
WELL. I love Steve/Peggy, Steve/Bucky and Steve/Peggy/Bucky. I love good Tony/Pepper (because I love good Pepper). I enjoy good Bruce/Betty. I LOVE Clint/Natasha/Bucky and Clint/Bucky but weirdly not Bucky/Natasha. AMERICA/KATE IS MY JAM. Characters: Pepper and Bucky. A lot of the comics ladies (Jen, Carol, Jess, Kate, America, Kamala) and Miles Morales, but outside of Kate and America, probably would read all that much about them.

Any other fandoms you're currently into:
Nope. Well, I still dip my toes into SPN occasionally but actively? Nope. I'm a one-fandom kinda gal.

What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend?
I update sporadically, and they tend to be updates about my life.

In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win?
An all expenses paid trip to Budapest.

Anything extra to add?
Hod damn, this place is five. LOVE YOU GUYS.
topaz119: Agent Carter[personal profile] topaz119 on May 9th, 2017 12:10 am (UTC)
I like both your marketing opportunities! Have you seen the flapper Avenger ladies? It's always cool to run into a group like that at a con (the Avengers Ball at DragonCon is especially fun.)

And I would dearly love to see Cap and Bucky breaking Peggy out of her assisted living place and haring off with her across country, all the time thinking they're in charge, haha.

Hello bar! It sure is nice to see you all here. Unfortunately my icons didn't make the transfer. Must do something about that...

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share: sugar_fey on Dreamwidth and LJ, sugarfey on Tumblr.
MCU, comics, or all the things? Primarily MCU, but I dabble in comics. I'm taking a break from comics at the moment because I got sick of the big Events.
What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read? GotG 2. I thought it lacked a little of the magic from the first one, but I really enjoyed the focus on Gamora and Nebula's relationship.
When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely? All of the above? I'm very flexible when it comes to my headcanons so I'm willing to read both canon and non-canon compliant fics (though I'm not a fan of Bruce/Nat). I like them as lovers and as platonic friends, so I'll enjoy either. I also LOVE AUs.
What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things? AUs as I said, women being awesome, female friendships (or romances...), sparring, Porn With Plot, occasionally Porn Without Plot, partner feels.
You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist? Black Widow bracelets.
Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one: Thursday's Child ( http://archiveofourown.org/works/2903951 ) is my most popular one-shot, I think, and it's the one I'm most proud of. The focus is more on Natasha and Fury's relationship as it's from Fury's perspective, but Clint/Nat features heavily. I'm also really proud of Here I Dreamt I Was A Soldier, which is my WWII AU ( http://archiveofourown.org/works/925882 ). There's also a Clint/Nat focused sequel, After The Bombs ( http://archiveofourown.org/works/2152419 ).

...Wow, I just realised I haven't written fic in over a year. :/
Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on: Not working on anything right now.
Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything): See below.
A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way? Behold, Counterfeit and Counterpart by Frea_O, the only Maria-Natasha roadtrip fic you will ever need ( http://archiveofourown.org/works/934035 ).
List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha: Maria Hill, Carol Danvers, Kate Bishop, Gamora, Kamala Khan... there's a theme here.
Any other fandoms you're currently into: I'm reading some Sailor Moon fic at the moment, because that is the fandom that will never die for me. Haruka/Michiru 4EVA.
What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend? I'm posting very sporadically, if at all. I'm more active on tumblr.
In the comm annibirthday party pass the parcel game what prize do you win? Marvel themed candles!

Your LJ handle, Dreamwidth handle, and any others you'd like to share:

I have accounts both in LJ and DW, but they were created solely to receive notifications for this place. I'm Crystal_Litanie in AO3.

MCU, comics, or all the things?

MCU mainly, but always open to all the things!

What is the last Marvel thing you watched or read?

Probably Agents of SHIELD... I'm watching GOTG 2 tomorrow though.

When it comes to our two favourite assassins do you have them camping out at the farm, by a river in Egypt, living in an alternate universe anyway, or some other camp entirely?

I'd chose the river, if anything because Marvel seemed to be in denial when they were deciding how to portray their relationship in the MCU.

What things do you love to see in fics/creative works; what’re a few of your favourite things?

Slow burn mostly. Team banter/team as family is always great. And I'm a sucker for babyfics - they're my guilty pleasure.

You're on the Marvel merchandise team and you can do anything you want: what thing do you make exist?

There's some excellent fanart out there, and I've always wanted to put some of it in a T-Shirt. Share the love and all that.

Self rec one thing that you've written/created (link please!) and tell us why this one:

The Fig Tree, here in AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/works/9843893

Basically it's the only thing I've ever posted so far. Feed the newbie with feedback!

Give us 3 sentences or a teaser of something creative, fic or otherwise, that you’re working on:

Jasper swipes the blood from his face with a grimace. In times like this he's reminded of why he left the field as soon as he could. He hates staining his suits.

Rec us something (fic, vid, art, graphics, meta, anything):

Leader of the Free World (here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/6579205/chapters/15052981 in AO3). It's not Clint/Natasha, but oh God how I laughed.

A bunch of Marvel characters go on a road trip. Who? Do they have a destination in mind? If so, where and why? What places do they stop on the way?

I'd say East Coast to West Coast, mainly because it's one of my own dreams. Living in Europe myself, I'm very attracted to the notion of driving with such a huge stretch of land ahead of you (plus I laughed to tears with Bill Bryson's The Lost Continent).

List some of your favourite Marvel characters/stories other than Clint and Natasha:

Agents of SHIELD, although the Thor movies are always a treat. Oh, and I love Coulson.

Any other fandoms you're currently into:

Nah, I'm pretty monogamous when it comes to fandom.

What should a new friend know about you/your journal and/or what are you looking for in a Dreamwidth/online friend?

I spend my days working too much, and my limited free time lying on a beach with a book or a bunch of friends (or preferably both). I believe that Charles Dickens is Britain's great gift to humanity and that J. K. Rowling is his current reincarnation. My daily work involves words.
Most of the time I'm pleased to just lurk, although I'm trying to get over it. I'm looking for people to obsess together over Marvel's characters, and I'd like to get into the world of beta. English is not my first language so I can't safely say that I'll correct your prepositions, but I'm a stickler for details.

Leader of the Free World is a gift to mankind I swear to God. <3 <3 I love it so much.

Bill Bryson! I love Bill Bryson! Or at least, his older stuff. Haven't read anything since the Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid. Notes from a Small Island had me in tears (I'm British so his views on some places were hysterical to me. Plus he mentioned my town.) and the (of course) A Short History of Nearly Everything is one of the best intro-to-science books ever. <3

(Pass the parcel is a game where you have a gift wrapped in many layers of wrapping paper and everyone sits in a circle and you play music and pass the present around. When the music stops, whoever is holding the parcel unwraps one layer. You go on like this until someone unwraps the actual present. It's a kids part game, basically)
