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.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] topaz119
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] sugar_fey
Rating: NC-17/Explicit
Warnings: Explicit sex. Reckless use of adverbs. A little bit of PTSD.
Prompt used: Steampunk
Summary: In a world of airships and automatons, Natasha has accepted a mission for them that Clint is not at all sure about.
Author Notes: This kind of took off on its own and what I ended up with was really not what I was planning when I started. I hope it still works!

It's too long to post in one post on lj, so I'm linking to AO3: Viridian Skies

Title:  Savile Row
Author:  Alpha Flyer
Rating:  NC-17
Warnings: Sexy times.  Also some off-stage assassin-y stuff.
Relationship:  Clint/Natasha
Summary: Sometimes, Natasha thinks, working for S.H.I.E.L.D. has its advantages – one of the more immediate ones being the privilege of seeing Hawkeye in a tuxedo.

Author's Note: First posted on LJ for the [livejournal.com profile] towerparty flashfic smut challenge, to [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch’s prompt “it's criminal when you whisper in my ear.” (Confession time:  Being me, I had to stick in a bit of mission!fic, so the thing got out of hand a bit in terms of length, and I had to beg our mod for an extra 90 minutes to finish.  This version is edited and cleaned up a bit.)

Title:  "Openings"  (posted as Chapter 19 of "Moments"
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alphaflyer
Rating:  PG
Warnings:  None apply (except possible sugar shock from excessive fluffiness)
Characters/Relationships:  Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff

Summary: Clint asks Natasha for dating advice.

Author's Note:  At one point, [livejournal.com profile] igrockspock left a bunch of prompts on her journal, one of which was Clint asking Natasha for dating advice even though she isn't exactly the right person.  I couldn’t find where she left it (or the exact wording), but it sounded like fun so it rattled around in my mind...  It was probably supposed to be headed elsewhere, but I chose the ship travelling down De Nile.  (Non-AoU compliant. Ahem.)

Title: We Can Live (Like We Both Can't Die)
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha
Word Count: 2909
Summary: From the very start, the thing she likes best about Clint is that she can't parse him.
Or: a short story about spies falling in love, complete with complications and misunderstandings.

matchmaker matchmaker
rating: pg-13
characters: Darcy Lewis, Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Bruce Banner, Jane Foster, Maria Hill, Jarvis, Pepper Potts, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Thor, Sam Wilson
warnings: none

summary: How do you get two people who are so clearly in love with each other to realize it? Great question. If you have any suggestions, please contact Darcy Lewis at Avengers Tower, Manhattan, NY.

author's note: For alphaflyer, who prompted "Darcy … as the matchmaker From Hell (or heaven, depending on how you look at it!)" for Clint and Natasha. Many thanks to cybermathwitch for beta'ing!

"This is completely ridiculous," Darcy said with no small amount of incredulity.
Title: i could have anything i wanted but I just couldn’t say it out loud

Word Count: 1000
Rating: R
Warnings: Explicity sex, mild references to past child abuse.

Word Count: 10,620
Warnings: None
Summary: Clint and Natasha are partnered on So You Think You Can Dance

More than an actual chapter two, this is the complete story of Clint and Natasha as contestants on So You Think You Can Dance. The original chapter one ficlet was absorbed into the larger story (which grew into a much larger story than anticipated - in a good way, I hope!) :-)

Title: only a wound that love had opened
Author: [livejournal.com profile] findthesea
Word Count:
Warnings: None
Summary: On Natasha’s first day at S.H.I.E.L.D., on her first full day as someone free of brainwashing or past mistakes, there are people that look at her like she’s still something that can be broken, like she’s still a bomb that will go off if you punch in the wrong code while trying to figure out another way to diffuse it. (or, Clint Barton and Natasha Romanov throughout the years: the story of a spy learning to love a soldier.)
A/N: Written for Avengersfest 2014. By sheer coincidence, I ended up being matched with my good friend [livejournal.com profile] enigma731, which made my job pretty easy - except for the part where I had to basically try and hide the fact that I was writing a fic for her every time we talked. But I really loved tackling most of her prompts and putting them together in one (very long and involved) story. Enjoy!

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: Do Solemnly Swear
Author: scribble_myname
Pairing/Characters: Clint & Natasha
Word Count: 5436
Rating: Mature
Warnings: References to Mind Control and Abuse
Author’s Notes: Sequel/companion fic to 'Til Death Do Us Part, where Clint and Natasha are soulmates.
Summary: He would never be separated from her in death, no matter what Loki thought. Clint hadn’t told the demigod everything because Loki hadn’t asked for an interpretation when Clint said simply, “Kill her and you kill me too.” It was a real, physical fact between them, but it was more than that and always had been.

Title: 'Til Death Do Us Part
Author: scribble_myname
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha
Word Count: 2191
Rating: Teen
Warnings: References to Canon-Typical Violence, Nightmares
Author’s Notes: Written for the soulmates/soul-bonding prompt on my Trope Bingo card
Summary: Clint and her worked as if they were two halves of one whole well before he was bleeding out and she saved him, before she truly put the Winter Soldier behind her.

Title: Spare Me Over Another Year
Fandom: The Avengers
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Clint/Natasha, Clint/Bobbi
Wordcount: 9324
Warnings: Character deaths (see notes), canon and world typical violence
Disclaimer: Watch me as I write fiction about fiction. All recognisable characters are property of Marvel and Disney.
Beta: The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] shenshen77, who has been ridiculously helpful once again. Also thanks to [livejournal.com profile] alphaflyer and [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices, who are great to bounce ideas off.
Notes: This started out as a sort of American Gods/The Book Thief/Avengers fusion, with a bit of Sandman thrown in. But then it turned into something else, though those elements can still be seen if you look hard enough. Death in this is similar to death as seen in Sandman/American Gods. So they die, but they don’t die.

Inspired by a prompt from [livejournal.com profile] _samalander which I saw in the [livejournal.com profile] be_compromised Secret Santa 2013; in her time as a reaper, Natasha has collected a lot of souls. She's never fallen in love with one before. For [livejournal.com profile] _samalander (obviously) but also [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices, who’s wanted an American Gods fusion ever since my prompt at the 2012 Summer Promptathon, and also my friend Jenna, to whom I gave this story as a (late) Christmas present.

TITLE: Love to Watch
AUTHOR: [livejournal.com profile] enigma731
PAIRING: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff
RATING: Explicit
WARNINGS: sex, (mild) voyeurism
SUMMARY: The first glimpse he gets of Natasha in a lacy bra and panties hits him like a hot punch to the gut, makes his chest feel tight. The code for this photoshoot mentioned something about modeling, but he wasn’t expecting this.
NOTES: For [livejournal.com profile] sugar_fey

Type Of Gift: Fic
Title: If I lose Myself
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] shenshen77
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Mentions of Past Torture
Summary/Prompt Used: Clint has always helped Natasha with her nightmares, but when Clint starts having nightmares after the Loki Incident...she is at a loss of what to do.
Author's Note: I hope you don't mind the tiny crossover with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, I just love the idea of Natasha and Melinda talking.

Type Of Gift: Fic
Title: Man on a Wire
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] jacedesbff
Rating: Mature
Warnings: None
Summary/Prompt Used: He moves with a certainty, a sharpness she isn’t sure she’s ever seen before, not even in the handlers she left behind after so many years. She wants to challenge him, wants to make that skill and confidence her own. [Prompt: Natasha is the one to pursue Clint instead of the other way around.]

Title: Come Near
Author: [livejournal.com profile] topaz119
Pairing: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff
Rating: NC-17
Length: ~25,000 words
Notes/Warnings: Post-movie so spoilers for everything that happened there (and no fix-it this time), plus everyone is dealing with everything that happened. Nothing graphic (at least not on the hurt/comfort & PTSD front) but feel free to ping me if you'd like to know more specifics.

Written for the 2013 [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] withdiamonds for the beta and to [livejournal.com profile] nessataleweaver for the fanmix and covers she made to accompany the story (link below).

Summary: What exactly do you do after monsters and magic?

Also! thanks to this very bar and Unfinished Fic Wednesdays, because I posted the first part of this ages ago and was much encouraged by the responses. Is there a tag for Finally!Finished!fic?

Hello, dear bar!

It's Friday again and today we're going to talk about sex! (Yes, you heard me right. Don't look at me with that tone of voice.)

Read more... )

Things to remember:

  1. Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut. If it's a comment, label NSFW in the subject line of the comment. Although I'm going to guess a lot of this discussion will be NSFW.

  2. Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings). With this topic please be especially mindful of using warnings or being explicitly clear that you've chosen not to warn. Remember that one person's kink could be another person's trigger.

  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.)

Hyperfocal Distance 01

Title: Hyperfocal Distance
Fandom: The Avengers, MCU with some 616 characters dropping by
Rating: PG-13/T
Warnings: Mentioned non-con, canon-level violence, nothing explicit but this does deal with a human trafficking ring.
Pairings: Clint/Natasha, Thor/Jane
Characters: Clint Barton, Natasha Romanoff, Darcy Lewis, Kate Bishop Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Thor, Loki, Dr. Jane Foster, Maria Hill, Phil Coulson, Nick Fury, Steve Rogers, Carol Danvers, Jessica Drew...
Word Count: 24,300
Summary: When incontrovertible proof of a scandal emerges from the mayor’s office, it could be the story of Clint Barton and Natasha Romanoff’s careers—provided they stay alive long enough to report it. The AU where Natasha is an investigative journalist and Clint has a camera and is pretty good at shooting things with it.
Author’s Notes: Finally, my super-long journalism AU where Clint’s a photographer is COMPLETE, even though it is months after Promptathon and I originally wrote this because [livejournal.com profile] sugar_fey wanted a fic where they're investigative journalists. Sorry about the complete lack of reality, though.

Holy crap I haven't been around in awhile. I've been working on my two novels that I want to query to lit agents this fall, and it's hard for me to write fic and original fic at the same time. Brain cannot handle all the things.

I'm going to be going through and reading and catching up, so sorry for the incoming comment spam that's about to happen.

Here's what I've been working on, fanfic wise! Thanks!

Title: Home is a Fire (completed at 17/17. Link goes to AO3, Chapter One)
Fandom: The Avengers (2012)
Pairing: Clint/Natasha; Tony/Pepper; hinted Bruce/Darcy; original female character/original male character
Rating: M
Characters: Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Darcy Lewis, Steve Rogers, Original Female Character (Emily Neal), Original Male Character (Jem), Original Female Character (Lana)
Warnings: One chapter is for sure NSFW, but that's later on. Mostly language, hints at past noncon-sex.
Summary: Clint's adult-aged daughter comes to work for the Avengers; Natasha takes a mission with poor risk assessment on getting out alive; angst, feels, and warm fuzzy feelings.
Author's Note: This is in my alternate head canon based on a previous fic See Something, Say Something that comes from someone else's fic The Observable Universe. In my headcanon, Clint had a kid when he was young and stupid, and she's still in his life. All the feels.

Title: Love Is The Art of Disappearing (complete at 9/9, link opens up Ch 1 at Ao3)
Fandom: The Avengers (2012)
**Alternate Universe: Magic**
Character Pairings: past Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov
Characters: Clint Barton, Natasha Romanov, Phil Coulson, a host of original characters
Warnings: violence, foul and violent language between characters
Summary: After a mission went wrong a year ago, revealing Natasha's most closely held secret, she and Clint are forced to work together on a crucial mission. Can they put the past behind them and use Natasha's gift, even when it puts them at risk?
Author's Note: I have no idea where this came from but you know...sometimes my brain wants it certain characters to have magic apparently?
