Hello and welcome to [community profile] be_compromised!

Here’s a little tour of what we like to call ‘our bar’, as in this is the best bar. Allow me to offer you a true bar welcome: pull up a stool, grab yourself a drink, and get comfy :)

tour behind the cut: about us, things that happen here, rules, and some links relevant to your interests )

We are currently in the process of importing the community to Dreamwidth (where it is also be_compromised) as on the discussion post people seemed in favour of at least backing up the community there. Please be aware that the queues for importing are currently long and then there will be coding that will need amending. We are also still dicussing our options, as in how we're actually going to use the Dreamwidth side. So please don't use the Dreamwidth community for anything just yet! Although feel free to join it as a memember :)

In the meantime, we'd still like to hear your thoughts on this discussion post. We're listening and we're using this to discuss as mods what direction the comm takes.

Thank you!

Your Mods
 
 
Dear Comm Members (those of you who haven't scattered yet out of fear of the new LJ Terms of Service):

I think most of us here are fans of both the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and its progenitor/parellel universe, the Marvel Comics and their various divergent versions (616, Ultimates, Fraction/Aja, Edmunson/Noto ...).  Because once you love Clint and Natasha, you can't get enough of them - I know I've been digging up even some vintage versions of them since the days when I professed complete ignorance of the comics 'verse.

So tell us - do you have a preference?  Slight or definitive?  Do you prefer terse, flinty-eyed, Ultimates-inspired Hawkdad from the MCU; the human-car-crash-but-still-professional Fraction version; or the atonement-driven Occupy Avengers guy in the tac suit?  Do you harken back to the femme fatale assassin of the 616; or do you prefer the sarcastic Avengers whisperer played by Scarlett Johansson, or the guilt-ridden, liquid-eyed cat lover created by Phil Noto?

Or do you do pick and choose what you like and mash them up into the kind of convergent whole Marvel never seems to quite manage?

And while you're at it, do you have any recs you can share for your favourite fanfic version of Clint and/or Natasha (whether inspired by one of the "originals" or completely different)?

And finally, do you foresee any convergence of the comics verse and the MCU in the forthcoming Avengers 3 and 4?

The floor is yours!

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.)

For those who might not be aware, since the start of 2017 there have been changes to Livejournal with servers moving to Russia and, most recently, a change in LJ Terms & Conditions.  We would like to share with you some of our thoughts on this and then we would like the community's input, with a view to possibly making some changes. Your mods may be manning the bar, but without all of YOU there is no community. Your views are important so please do comment after reading. Thank you.

Please be aware that your mods are nowhere near the likes of Tony Stark in technical knowledge and futurist thinking, however: never asumme that information you post on any social media is entirely private. Social media companies hold the rights to your information (see: instagram owns all your photos, see: you can never completely delete your Facebook). In addition, unless you are very, very good there will be someone better than you who can crack your security; we can take precautions but we are not immune. This has not changed with LJ. It's just that instead of LJ being in Trump's America it's now in Putin's Russia. Your opinions on those administrations and on your online rights associated with companies located within them are your own.

Our Position: Your mods are not panicking, but we are wary of these changes. They do not at first glance impact the main activities of this community - a main change in the T&Cs concerns politics for example - but with things such as this and Russia's LBGTQ rights record we are wary. We also, of course, have to take into account our members. If the majority of you move elsewhere then it would make sense for the community to follow the community.

Dreamwidth: An alternate social media site that we could host the community on is Dreamwidth. It is relatively easy to import a community there from LJ. There are pros and cons to Dreamwidth vs LJ and these are different for personal journals and communities. KEY POINTS: we could import the entire community including all of the comments to Dreamwidth. You can't crosspost on communities and future comments would not crosspost, although we could re-import the community on a semi-regular basis. Dreamwidth has an OpenID log in system so that you can comment there using an LJ, and other, online identities - you do NOT have to have a personal Dreamwidth account to post to a Dreamwidth community (although it makes it easier). None of your mods are familiar with Dreamwidth and there may be stumbling blocks that we wouldn't know about until we trip over them.

Options under consideration:

1) We keep the community on LJ. We back it up on Dreamwidth and re-import to Dreamwidth on a semi-regular basis to keep it current. We do not moderate or use the Dreamwidth version. It remains inactive unless needed in the future.

2) We keep the LJ community AND have a Dreamwidth community. How this would work: we re-import semi-regularly to Dreamwidth, we comment on both, we moderate both, we keep both active. Dreamwidth would have BOTH LJ and Dreamwidth posts. LJ would just have LJ posts. Dreamwidth would (hopefully) end up with the comments from both. LJ would just have LJ comments. 

3) We move the community to Dreamwidth and maintain a presence on LJ. Dreamwidth would be the main community but monthly/ on a semi-regular basis we would post a summary post to LJ with links to Dreamwidth posts and activity, so people on LJ would know what was going on and could either comment/chat on LJ or use OpenID to comment on Dreamwidth.

4) We move to Dreamwidth completely. We archive the LJ version and don't use it at all.

For easy commenting you can copy and paste the following. Or you can just comment with whatever you think about all of this. The important thing is that we have a discussion as a community, so please do comment. There is no deadline for this post and we open to changing our minds (again) in the future. However, if you could comment before MONDAY 17th APRIL that would be helpful.

 

PLEASE NOTE: please be respectful of other people's opinions, emotions, and countries. Think debate, not argument. Thank you.

Your Mods

Hello all and welcome to your weekend entertainment!

This week's ATTF is all about the recs.

Comment with something that you'd like to read/see. It could be a specific fic, fanvid, graphic, meta post etc that you remember but just can't quite remember the title of or no longer have a link to. It could be something that you're really in the mood for, like hurt/comfort, Avengers as family, sexy times. It could be that you've recently gotten into a new Marvel pairing (or threesome or moresome!) or you're after something classic MCU or a type of AU or comics related or...anything under the sun or the darkest of starless nights. Please post an individual comment per request, but feel free to comment as many times as you want - like we do for prompts for promptathons. Basically this is prompathon but with recs. (Oh the cleverness of the title for this week's ATTF *grins*)

The rest of us will then reply with recs. Multiple recs allowed, self recs allowed, ALL THE RECS! I have faith in the vastness of your bookmarks.

And y'know what? If you want to share things and there's no comment request for that sort of thing? REC IT ANYWAY. Because sometimes we don't know we're gonna like it until we meet it :)



If you'd like to host an ATTF, suggest ideas, or see what's coming up you can find that all of that at our ATTF SIGN UP POST!

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.)

Pairing: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov/Laura Barton, Laura Barton/Natasha Romanov, Laura Barton/Clint Barton
Warnings: no specific warnings, heed the few specific warnings on specific chapters
Rating: Mature
Author's Notes: This is the third installment in my OT3 series and it's finally complete. You don't need to read the other stories to read this one, which picks up after AOU and during/after the events of Civil War.

Natasha says, "No matter what happens, this family will always be the one thing we have. We’ve all put each other through too much shit to let anything come between us.”

Clint says, “You know what it means to owe a debt, Nat.”

[a family picking up the pieces, before and after the war]

TITLE: How to be a Heartbreaker
AUTHOR: enigma731
PAIRING: Clint/Natasha
RATING: Teen
WARNINGS: None
SUMMARY: “You want me to teach seduction,” Natasha says disgustedly.
Fury sighs. “The official name of the course is Interpersonal Espionage Techniques.”
“Seduction,” she insists. “I’m a spy, not a school mistress.”
He raises an eyebrow. “Interesting choice of words there.”
NOTES: I started this for [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices' mini promptathon prompt, but then it got way too long for the 3 week deadline. I hope you all enjoy it now!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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).

Hi all, just in case you haven't already spotted it: fills are open at the Valentine's Mini Promptathon!!!

The deadline for fills is midnight Eastern 21st 28th February because fills have been extended by a week! Multiple fills are a delight. Remember to include a title, rating, and appropriate warnings in the subject line of your fill. (As ever, we welcome creative works after the fact but they won't be added to the masterlist.)

GO GO GO!
