Title: The Hot Light
Parings: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov
Rating: Teen
Warnings: fluff, donuts
Word count: 2667
Notes: Inspired by a post here at be_compromised from December 2013 (yep, this was started that long ago) about the Empire Magazine Winter Soldier cover.
Summary:

Steve pointed down the street. “The Hot Light is on,” he said again quickly, “and I needed you and Clint so we could each get a dozen.”

Natasha looked in the direction Steve pointed and rolled her eyes. “Krispy Kreme, Steve. Really?”


The Hot Light

It's spring, Bar! (Well, technically. I don't know about where you are, but the weather here vehemently disagrees with the change of seasons.)

But anyway, spring is our theme this weekend! I want to hear your head canons, recs, and comment fics! Does Clint pick a ridiculous bouquet of wildflowers for anyone? How about some hijinks with Avengers and baby animals, perhaps on the Barton farm? What does spring mean for the Tower or the Compound?

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.)

Hello, Bar!

Guess what? It's time to do talk about what one might expect to talk about in a bar: Alcohol!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, this (belated West Coast, sorry :p ) ATTF is all about Clint, Natasha, and drinks this week.

What are your head canons, Bar? Does Natasha love vodka as much as some fanon would have us believe? Does Clint have a secret guilty pleasure for espresso martinis? Who becomes a sap when they're three drinks in, and have there ever been any booze-fueled confessions in their relationship? (Or, if you want to go the angst route, does anyone have a problem with alcohol?) Tell me all of your thoughts, Bar! Pull up a seat and bring your drink of choice.

Happy ATTF Friday! I missed hosting last week (we'll blame my parents visiting for that one) but remembered this week (because I is smart and put it  in on my calendar this time)... So here we go! *g*

Three sentences. They can say a little or they can say a whole lot.  They can be a tease or they can be the whole shebang. So today's challenge is crafted around that theme.


1) Post three lines from a WIP to show us what is coming up. Tease us, entice us, make us beg you for more!

OR

2) Be creative and write a complete fic for the Bar in just three lines. Bonus points for creative use of semi-colons, colons, dashes, and ellipses. ;)

Or hey, why not do both?
Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend everyone!

Yes, our promptathons roll around again, as (semi) reliably as birds migrating.

So, once again it's the time for the Most Romantic Mini Promptathon Of All.

Or platonic. Or full of badassary. Doesn't have to be romantic. Your choice. We welcome ALL!

Timeline
Now (Tuesday, February 7th - February 14th midnight eastern: Prompt! Prompt ALL THE THINGS!
February 14th to February 21st (midnight eastern): Fill those prompts like you've never filled prompts before!


Theme
Prompts: All things Valentine's Day or love (romantic or otherwise!) related. Friendship? UST? Developing romantic feelings? Badass mission that just so happens to involve obnoxious heart-shaped candies? Excessive consumption of pink cupcakes? Living down by that rivier in Egypt or AoU-compliant? Alternate universes featuring singing elephants dressed as cupids? Post-Civil War reconciliation? All are welcome here!


Prompting
Prompts go in the comments to this post. List each prompt as its own separate comment.


Fills
Fills: Post your fill, or a link to your fill - be it fic, art, a video of you preforming an interpretive dance, etc - as a reply to the prompt comment. Please don't post your fanwork separately to the comm, otherwise b_c might explode from the squee. We'll also create a masterlist post updated as fills come in, so rest assured that everyone will see your work!

Please include title, rating, and appropriate warnings in the subject line of your fill.

Prompts may have multiple fills, please give love to your fellow creators!

FILLS CLOSED. Thanks to everyone who participated and made this promptathon so great!

Hello, lovely bar patrons! It is with great pleasure that I announce that we are once again running the Valentine's Day Mini Promptathon here!

Prompts will begin from February 7. Posting begins- you guessed it- on February 14.

This ATTF is for you to ask questions, squee, celebrate, chat and spread the word, for the time of joy will soon be upon us.

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.)

COMMUNITY BANNER: Getting you all into the Valentine's Day spirit with some feelings and an oldie but goodie banner from [livejournal.com profile] whiskeyinmind. If you'd like to make a banner for the community we'd love to see it! Send them in to be_compromised@hotmail.com

Read more... )

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: Look for this week's to be posted soon-ish, and start thinking about V-Day promptathon! We may or may not have an ATTF that's relevant to your interests. (Interested in signing up for ATTF? Anyone can play! Sign up here.)

IN THE WIDER WORLD WEB: Superbowl Sunday is upon us (in the US, at least) which means movie trailers! No word yet on whether we'll get any new MCU trailers, but there is supposed to be a new Ghost In The Shell trailer airing with Scarlett. Comment with anything else that you might've seen going on with Clint and Natasha and/or the general MCU around the Internet! Post holidays, there's not a whole lot of exchanges going on, but I know there's some good fic out there! Anyone working on something they just can't wait to share with the comm?

Happy ATTF Friday, best bar! (Hey, it's still Friday on the East Coast of NYC...)

So. Families. Long before AoU came into the mix and gave Clint his own family and backstory, we all had our headcanons as to how Clint and Natasha grew up. The bad thing about them not having their own movies is that we have no idea what kind of story the MCU had in store for them. The good news? We got to make up our own headcanons.

Do you have any favorite headcanons for our favorite assassins that you absolutely stand by? Was Natasha always an orphan, raised in the Red Room? Or did she have a family she was taken away from in Russia? Does your headcanon for Clint's family include the comicsverse of Barney and the circus, or something else entirely?

Of course, found family is one of the MCU's favorite things...and one of mine, too. It's no secret that the Avengers (especially Natasha) have found more of a place with their friends than with any family they ever had growing up.

Share your own headcanons, fic (do you have really good origin stories?) and thoughts!

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.)

Retirement is a Four Letter Word

Words: 1763
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences (for cursing only)
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov
Characters: Clint Barton, Natasha Romanova, Kate Bishop
Additional Tags: Post-Avengers (2012), Not Avengers: Age of Ultron (Movie) Compliant, Clint Barton’s Farm, But Not His Ready-Made Family, Future Fic, Retirement, Minor Young Avengers

Notes:  More thanks than I can ever give to halcyon_autumn and meatball42 for the corrections and feedback. Any existing errors are all mine.

Clint woke up alone. He reached out an arm to Natasha's side to find it not only empty, but already cool as well. She must've been up for a while. Clint figured that meant it was well past time for him to get himself up for the day, too. He was getting lazy in his retirement.

Okay, technically this is ATTS but as I write this, it's still Friday on the West Coast of North America, so.

This weekend (and until the next ATTF rolls around) is your chance to unburden yourself of your troubles with pesky Works in Progress.  You know, the things that have been sitting on your hard drive forever and that won't finish themselves no matter how hard you stare at them.  Or even just the ideas that won't quite gel - you know, the ones that need a nudge to turn into an actual story. (This used to be a regular - Wednesday - feature of the comm, and is quite possibly the reason "Highway of Diamonds" got written.)

Come and get inspiration from your friends in this wonderful comm!

-  Tell us about the corner you've written yourself into - maybe someone can help you out?

-  Tell us which plot hole you're stuck in - maybe someone has a tow line?

-  Tell us which character arc you're thinking of that seems off - we'll give them a stern talking to and get them to cooperate.

-  Give us an excerpt that we can ooh and aah over, so as to inspire you to continue!

There are some amazing writers on this site that are only to happy to help out, be used as a sounding board, cheer you on or give you a little push.  Because we are selfish if there is one thing we like, it's more great Clintasha fic!

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.)
