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.)
 
 
Title: You'll Hum This Tune Forever
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/Characters: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov
Word Count: 1770
Summary: Clint doesn't plan on moving anytime soon, could wait for morning right where he is, and gives a discontent huff when Natasha stretches out against him, yawning as well, and then pushes herself upright.

Her smile in response is fond and amused, the way someone would look at a puppy who's being especially adorable, if a little dense. She stands and extends her hand, and ohh, well yes, that changes things.

Title: We Set The World To Rights
Rating: R
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Kate
Word Count: 3170
Summary: “If you like being tied up so much, well. I’ve been the expensive elite version of a girl scout, which means I know pretty good knots, and I’m sure we can find some rope around the place if we go looking. We can take care of that right here. No need for you to go and get yourself...”

And right then and there Kate loses her train of thought, because they’ve been together for a few months now but she doesn’t think she’s ever seen Clint’s pupils dilate so fast and so suddenly.

Title: Still In Love With All Your Sins
Rating: NC-17
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Kate
Word Count: 2000 (do I get a price for hitting that on the dot? XD)
Summary: The one where they're going through a box of old photos, Kate reveals a fondness for Clint's old circus costume, and things get a little out of hand. Or taken in hand, rather.

Title: Every Night A Hopeless Lie
Rating: NC-17
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha
Warnings/Kinks: Consensual Kink, Exhibitionism, Public Nudity, Older Woman/Younger Man, Experimental Kink
Word Count: 4994
Summary: He never even tried to resist, and now he's reveling in his love for her, enjoying an illusion that can’t ever become truth. Natasha can faintly remember what that feels like; the memory stings, like a needle lodged just beneath her skin, and it makes her want to be a little cruel, to see how far she can push him, to see when they'll finally reach the point at which he will tell her no more.

Title: By the Book
Characters: Clint Barton, Kate Bishop, Natasha Romanoff, Tony Stark, Lucky the Pizza Dog, Jessica Dawson (Background), Bobbi Morse (Background)
Relationships: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton & Kate Bishop
Length: app 8,400 words 
Summary: Clint Barton's love life isn't just a car crash, it's a multi-vehicle pile-up. Kate decides to lend a hand.

Author's Note: This story was initially written for a Hawkeye Bang, from which I had to withdraw when I got sucked into an RL vortex. The piece draws most of its inspiration from the Matt Fraction Hawkeye run (without being slavishly canon compliant), with a dash of Avengers Assemble #5 and a hint at events from the MCU. A mash-up, really, but that’s what fanfic is for, right?

Thanks to my beloved beta, [livejournal.com profile] jrbarton. I added a few bits after she was done, so any glitches are mine. A belated birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic.

Title: out of the ash
Author: [livejournal.com profile] findthesea
Rating: Teen
Warnings: None, save for some subtle references to the darker parts of Clint's backstory
Summary: And Clint Barton is seven years old, and everything seems blurry and hazy, and he can’t quite understand words that well.
Notes: I debated whether or not to save this for the upcoming prompathon, but in a fit of feelings, decided to post it now. Inspired in part by the beautiful, wonderful words and art of Fraction/Aja's Hawkguy #19 which broke my heart in every single way and has taken over my head for the time being.

Happy new year, everyone! I hope you've all had a great start to 2014.

Because I'm betting I'm not the only one still picking up the pieces of my brain after the holidays, this week's ATTF is really simple. Our theme is new year's resolutions and/or wishes for the new year (if resolutions aren't your thing).

So:

1. What are your resolutions or hopes/wishes for 2014?

and

2. Do you have a head canon about our favorite master assassins and new year's? Do they celebrate it? Does Clint make the same resolution to take a nap every year? Please share/flail/write comment fic/have a general awesome time.

And as a final aside, check out this gorgeous promo Phil Noto posted on tumblr. Black Widow #1 comes out next week, and so far I think that's one of the most exciting things about 2014!
