I began this summer wanting to make lots of podfic so I started out with a "warm up" of a fic I wrote ~a year ago for last year's promptathon, but then real life got in the way and I kind of forgot? to post it all summer? but anyway here's my attempt at contributing a little to fandom again after lurking for months!

Title: 2am thoughts
Pairings: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov,spoilers )
Rating: G
Word Count: approx. 2,200
Summary: The kind of late night regrets and early morning thoughts you have about the love that swept you off your feet, the love that you gave up in favor of something more stable, the love that you'll never get back, for better or for worse, because you can be whole and satisfied and happy and still wonder what if, what if, what if.
Warnings: mostly just the second-person narration? also minor spoilery things concerning Age of Ultron with regards to shippy things based on trailers/speculation floating around

( “We’ll always have Budapest,” you remember her saying even years after everything else is gone. )

Title: and sometimes when you fall, you fly (also on AO3)

Rating/Warnings: R (sex, f-word)

Length: 5,950 words

Summary: “If you could choose – if you’d had the choice – would you have gone with Steve?" Clint asks Peggy Carter, a question that she of all people might be able to answer and one that he hates to ask.
A belated repsonse to this prompt [livejournal.com profile] scribble_myname left in the 2014 promptathon: Clint was a time travel operative [for a future version of SHIELD/any other organization from a different time] who fell in love with Natasha while on a mission and chose to stay in the MCU timeline with her. Every day, he can feel the tug of the timeline to get him back to where he belongs and chooses to stay.

Author Note: With thanks to [livejournal.com profile] franztastisch for beta reading this into making more sense! Title is a quote from The Sandman: Fables and Reflections by Neil Gaiman, as per the link text.

You know what happens when you dream of falling? Sometimes you wake up.
Sometimes the fall kills you.
And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.
 
 
Title: Learning Natasha (Again)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] scribble_myname
Remix Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] sienamystic
Fic I've Chosen To Remix: I Know My Place (But It Don't Know Me)
Pairing(s): implied Clint/Natasha
Rating: Gen
Wordcount: 5151
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Author's Note: When I ran through all the awesome fics available to remix, I kept coming back to this one because it talked about how Natasha was coping with becoming a team player, and there were all these little, delightful moments implied that I wanted to capture. I hadn't meant to wrap up the fic with the same scene, but the momentum carried me there and I rather like how it all turned out.

Summary: There are certain things about Natasha that are true. In order to fit in with her new team, she just needs to learn a few more of those truths.


Title: Dreaming of Budapest
Author: [livejournal.com profile] scribble_myname
Remix Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] sienamystic
Fic I've Chosen To Remix: In Two Straight Lines In Rain or Shine
Pairing(s): Clint/Natasha
Rating: Gen
Wordcount: 1010
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply, some child/medical abuse and canon-typical violence implied
Author's Note: It's a crossover between Firefly and Avengers and it was really the story implied about Clint and Natasha that drew me to the fic, but then I decided to go watch Firefly so I could really remix it and fell head over heels in love. After that, the fic practically wrote itself.

Okay, so there might have been a very specific line that drew me: The man is a little package of tense, and the red-haired woman has...well, she has the same look on her face as River sometimes gets, right when she’s about to do something at her highest range of inexplicable. How could I resist a first line like that?

Summary: River Tam dreams that Natasha needs help—and answers.

Title: Between the shadow and the soul
Pairings: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: approx. 11,900
Summary: "Clint hesitates to call what they do dating, because they’re spies and fighters and liars and people like them aren’t meant for more than a warm body to push against in the night." He falls in love with her and she falls in love with him and not necessarily in that order.
Warnings: some descriptions of violence but nothing too graphic

( Clint Barton learns fairly quickly that Natasha Romanov is one person he may never quite be able to figure out. )

Title: Make me chaste, but not just yet (7/?)
Fandom: The Avengers (2012), Marvel comics
Pairing: Clint/Natasha; past Clint/Bobbi
Rating: M
Characters: Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton, Phil Coulson, Nick Fury, kate Bishop, mention of original characters
Warnings: NSFW and language for entire work. Some physical roughness in this chapter; nothing worse than we've seen either in movies or comics.
Summary: after leaving the Red Room, but before SHIELD started showing interest in her, Natasha felt free to explore and have fun between missions on her own terms. All she wanted was a perfectly pleasing one night stand. And she got it. She didn't expect to meet the guy ever again.

In this chapter Natasha is getting used to SHIELD, and SHIELD is getting used to her. That goes as good as one might expect. Clint is stuck on a boring mission and wishes for something more fun. Be careful what you wish for, Clint, because you just might get it. We also meet Kate Bishop.

Author's notes: a huge huge thank you goes to [livejournal.com profile] shenshen77, my writing buddy and my beta reader. Thank you kindly, you awesome lady. I apologize to all my Italian readers. I meant no disrespect, you guys.

Read it on AO3 or on LiveJournal. Feedback is welcome on either entry and very appreciated! :)
 
 
Title: Make me chaste, but not just yet (6/?)
Fandom: The Avengers (2012)
Pairing: Clint/Natasha; past Clint/Bobbi
Rating: M (entire work)
Characters: Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton in this chapter.
Warnings: NSFW, language, canon compliant abuse for entire work.
Summary: after leaving the Red Room, but before SHIELD started showing interest in her, Natasha felt very free to explore and have fun between missions on her own terms. All she wanted was a perfectly pleasing one night stand and she certainly didn't expect to meet the guy ever again.
Author's notes: a huge huge thank you to [livejournal.com profile] shenshen77 for super quick beta reading, and to [livejournal.com profile] ashen_key for sharing shiny awesome thinky thoughts. <3!

A/N: in this chapter Clint and Coulson go undercover (sort of), Natasha decides if she'll agree to what Clint suggested to her in previous chapter, and SHIELD has competent and professional psychologist who actually can do his job.

Guys, sharing is caring, and leaving feedback is awesome (and writing is never the same experience without it). So if you read, if you liked, please let me know what worked for you! I'm sorry it was a long wait, I'll do my best to update this on a more regular basis.

Title: Initiation Into This Life (or: 5 times Clint told the truth and one time she didn't)
Fandom: Marvel movie!verse
Pairing/Characters: main: Clint Barton (female), Natasha Romanoff - secondary: Nick Fury, Phil Coulson
Rating: Teen and Up
Word Count: 5202
Prompt: Everyone else thinks Clint is a guy. Clint doesn’t really bother correcting them. for [community profile] queer_fest
Warnings: hints at Clint’s less-than-happy beginnings

Author's Note: I saw this prompt and wanted to write it. I started writing and found myself in a darkness, wondering that I'd ever considered it. I asked [livejournal.com profile] hufflepuffsneak what she thought of the story so far and she liked it. Without the quiet encouragement, I would never have finished this.

Summary: Clint Barton has the Black Widow in the cross-hairs of her bow but stays her impulse as she realizes that this woman has seen things, in this first meeting, that not even the people who know her best have ever realized. I was told you were one thing, yet I see you are completely another.

Title: Driver’s Ed
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers
Pairings: Clint/Natasha if you squint
Warnings: Violence, allusions to past abuse, gunplay.
Summary: When a rookie brings a concern to Coulson about some of Natasha’s habits, he initially dismisses her. But like most everything involving the Black Widow, appearances can be deceptive.
Word Count: 3479
Author’s Notes: This fic was inspired by the most recent ATTF, where we talked about how Clint and Natasha get around when they’re not hijacking Quinjets with Captain America. I posited a theory about Natasha’s habits, and [livejournal.com profile] anuna_81 liked it so much that I had to put it into fic.

Also, I picture this as taking place in the same universe as The Candy Thief. It's set between Thor and The Avengers.

Title: Budapest
Author hot mess express
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance
Type: One-shot
Warnings: No warnings needed for this one at all.
Spoilers: No real spoilers.

Why rec'd: I enjoy marriage fics, but very often, Nat and Clint are out of character in them. I was thrilled today to find a marriage fic where Clint and Nat are perfectly in character, and as a bonus, (as you can probably guess from the title) it's a Budapest fic too. :D It quickly found its way onto my favorites list. It's very well written, but it only has a few reviews on FF.N, so I'm rec-ing it, because it deserves more attention than it's gotten so far. :)

Link to the fic on FF.N: Budapest.
