Hi guys! Our ATTF is more like an ATTWednesday this week. Whoops.

Today we're talking about The News. As international spies and assassins, Clint and Natasha have to keep up with the news. Which broadcasters do they follow? Do they make bets over where they will be sent on missions? Do they express opinions about stuff going on in the world or do they try to stay fairly neutral?

Or on the flipside, do Clint and Natasha get reported on in the news now that they have a public profile? What sort of things are said about them? Are they reported about in trashy tabloids? How do they feel about the things said about them?

Thoughts, opinions and fics/recs are more than welcome.

Also, a reminder to you lovely people that we are still planning to have our summer promptathon. Stay tuned!

Happy Friday, everyone!

The solstice this week means that's officially summer! If you love summer, it's the season for fireworks, popsicles, and visits to the beach; if you hate it, summer means mosquitoes, sweltering humidity, and broken air conditioning. Think about some of these:

>How do our favorite assassins prefer to use their summer? Would Natasha prefer to spend her summer vacation rock climbing in China or lounging by the beach? How often does Clint organize a barbecue at the Tower (and/or burn everything he tries to grill, potentially)?
>Embarrassing vacation moments
>Navigating vacation spots (for example, the time my husband and I drank too much wine in Venice and then had to figure out the water bus system...)
>Vacation spots they'd never want to return to OR
>Mission destinations that someone wishes was a vacation destination

No matter how you feel about summer, pull up at stool at the bar and tell us about your summer headcanons, rec us something summery that you love, write us a little comment fic, and/or tell us what you're doing this summer!

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.)

Happy Friday people of the bar! It's that ATTF time again :)

This week is all about the PLACES in the Marvel universe. From New York to Budapest, Sokovia to Kathmandu, Siberia to Wakanda, Earth to the rest of the Galaxy... we're seeing more and more of the Marvel universe. This week we're going to explore!

> What are your thoughts/headcanons about the places we've been introduced to?
> Share your favourite screenshots, fun facts, any interesting about places in the Marvel universe, or that you've been to, would love to go to...anywhere!
> Share your headcanons about the places that our favourite assassins have been to, for missions or for fun.
> What characters would you like to send where?
- How do you go about embedding your fic/creative work in a particular location and bringing that place to life?
> Rec creative works set around the world or ones where you think a sense of place was really well done

Welcome to your weekend getaway :)

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!

1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.

New to Dreamwidth, new ATTF sign up post!

What is this All The Things Friday of which you speak?
All The Things Friday is bascially a day where we have a post that kicks off a weekend-long party. That post can be a call for recs, discussion, picspams, meta, thinky thoughts, squee, dance parties, mini challenges, ANYTHING that you would like to see on this comm. You can take a look at any of the tags with 'Friday' in to see the kinds of things that we've gotten up to before. Although if someone has already used your idea, don't worry; repeats are fine, because there are always new fics to rec and ideas had :)

Who can host?
Anyone. You can host on your own, or as a team, or with a mod. If you have suggestions but don't want to host you can comment with suggestions, and if you're not sure about hosting you can chat about ideas in the comments.

What does hosting mean?
Being the person that writes the party post and then joining in with the fun that happens. It's not writing War and Peace, just something to get things going, like questions to get people thinking about meta or a theme for fic recs.

It's moderating something?
No, don't worry. If you have any problems throw it to the mods as normal. It's more like chairing a gathering, being the DJ, yelling for drinks all around. It's as much or as little work as you want it to be.

How does hosting work?
You write a post about what kind of Friday you want it to be, opening up the floor, and you post it at any time on a Friday. For people worried about timezones, really, any time - we party on throughout the weekend. At the bottom of your Friday post we'd like you to copy and paste this:



Want to get involved? Comment with what Friday you'd like to do and what you'd like to do and we'll add you to the sign up list below. Check in to see what upcoming Fridays we have and to suggest more ideas. Get excited!

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).

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.

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?

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.

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.

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!

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!

1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.

This weekend let’s talk about titles!

When do you decide on the title for a fic? Do you usually know at the start and build the fic around the title, or are you the kind of person who scrambles to find one after the fic is complete? How do you chose your titles or get inspiration for them? Capitals or lower case? What’s your favourite title that you’ve come up with? Artists, how do you name your art?

What about other people’s titles, are there any that you especially like or that grabbed your attention? Are there any film, book etc titles that got you interested?

In today's ATTF:

a) post a comment chatting about any or all of the above. Let's have some conversations!

b) here's a thing that I found with a 'twenty titles for a writer' exercise. Pick one of your fics/peices of art/vids etc - either finished and already posted, or something new that you're working on - and have a go at this exercise. Post the results in a comment. Everyone else, which titles do you think work best?

Artists: here's an art of the title selection that's fun! Maybe pick a title - even a title from this weekend's ATTF - and play around with how you could make it look?

c) comment with ASK ME and a link to where people can find your creative works. People will then reply with one/some of your titles. Reply with where that title came from, why you chose it, your thoughts behind it.

d) ALL THE THINGS! This is, after all, entitled All The Things Friday ;)



You can sign up to host an ATTF, suggest ideas for future ATTFs, and see what's coming up in ATTFs HERE

Hello honorable comrades, and welcome to the latest All the Things Friday! I'll be your host this week, sort of. More on that in a minute. If you want to be a host for a future ATTF, go to this page and check out the info!

Firstly, credit to [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices and [livejournal.com profile] workerbee73, who masterminded the ATTF I'm mostly copy-pasting for this one. They ran a really successful and super fun Friday a few years back, so here's to hoping that spirit will return, and shower us with loads of great fanworks, just in time to procrastinate all out holiday exchange fics :))) not that I'm speaking personally or anything, and/or cushion the blow of November holidays with relatives. One would hope.

There are three parts to this ATTF challenge/game. If you'd like to participate, you can choose any or all of the options, or just sit back and glut! :D

1. Rec a fanwork (fic, art, podfic, graphics, mural graffitied on a wall in town, etc.) by a fandom newcomer, or just an underappreciated work that you feel deserves some love.

2) Tell us the first thing that you wrote/made in this fandom. How did you get into it, what was the inspiration, was it hard to do? What do you think about it now, either in content or composition? Tell the story of your story! Link if you're brave enough :D

3) Rec something you wrote/made in this fandom that you’re most proud of, or that’s your favourite.

Discussion Ideas: How have your thinky thoughts or creative leanings changed since that first thing you wrote/made? How far have we come since the film was released? What is it about the shiny new things coming through that are different, that have changed your thinking?

We've had a few good recs and discussions on this community lately, but with the way the movies, comics, and, basically, 2016, I think it'll do us some good to harken back to the golden days. Maybe it'll give us some inspiration for the future. <3

What are your three things for this Friday?


And a few things to keep in mind:
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 has 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.)

It's Civil War general release this month around the world and ATTF IS BACK so to get us in the mood our first Autumn All The Things Friday is Civil War party time!

Let us know when the release day is in your part of the world. Bring anything with a Clint and/or Natasha focus, bring gen and team things, bring kickass lady things, bring anything about Civil War that you like. Bring your fic recs, art recs, gifs, picspams, meta, thinky thoughts, squee, speculation, and ALL THE THINGS CIVIL WAR. LET'S ROCK THIS BAR.





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).

It’s almost - almost - time for this year’s SUMMER PROMPTATHON! (No, really, SOON. EXCITEMENT!) So we’re warming up those prompting brain cells and writing muscles for this week’s All The Things Friday in anticipation of the main event.

Here’s how this works: comment to this post with a prompt. As many times as you like. People can then fill those prompts, but only with fics that are three sentences long OR exactly 100 words long OR a graphic containing 140 characters or less.

You can get creative with what three sentences look like or be precise with 100 words. You can write in installments of three sentences or 100 words. You can fill as many prompts as you like, the same prompt can be filled multiple times, and you can even write fills in response to other people's fills to create round robin or chain fics. We're open to creativity, but the aim of the game is three sentences OR 100 words OR 140 characters in a graphic - choose your challenge!

We’re going to wrap this up before promptathon, so this ends at midnight on Sunday, whenever midnight is in your time zone. The usual community rules apply and the usual community theme - which is that we love all things Natasha and Clint, with each other, other people, threesomes, in gen fic, you know how we roll.

Happy Friday :)

PS. If anyone would like to make a summer or promptathon themed community banner for August check out a monthly news post for the guidelines, send them in to be_compromised@hotmail.com, and you will receive CAPSLOCK APPRECIATION and virtual hugs from me!

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.)
 
 
So, we haven't had one of these for a while.  But it's summer time, some of us are on holidays, even travelling (I'm at an airport, en route to Crete as I write this).  What better time to remember that Clint and Natasha have been virtually everywhere on the planet, doing good and killing bad guys?  Or even just relaxing and levelling out after the latest alien invasion or brain melt.

So, tell us about your favourite head canon:  Where do they go to relax?  What is their MOST or LEAST favourite place they've ever been on mission (and yes, Budapest counts)?  Why?

Have they ever been to your home town?  What would they find there?

Or meta for us.  What do you make of those tossed-off references, like Budapest?  "He's in Afghanistan."  That snippet from Abidjan on the computer.  What grabs you when people throw those into a fic?

Give us a prompt, a three-sentence fic, or rec us a story (or three).  And yes, self-recs are good!
