Title: Stole The Show
Rating: T
Word Count: 3,229
Chapter: 1/?

Summary: Every day is the same. She dresses in the same red leotard, mindlessly ties her ballet shoes on, and joins her partner on the stage. Every day is the same, but after her ballet shoes slip to the floor and her leotard lies crumpled on the mattress, she thinks; I might just be in love with him.

Or, Clint and Natasha are partners in a circus travelling around the world.

Author's Note: This was my entry into the clintasha fandom and it holds a very special place in my heart. I keep saying I'll update but I probably won't because I don't really know how to continue xD Also, this was back in the days (not that long ago, actually) when I named everything clintasha-related 'stole the show'.

Author's Note: I've been sitting on this story half-fished for a while and, as I haven't been very active in the fandom lately, I figured it was about time I just got the thing on paper and shoved it out into the world to see whether or not it can fend for itself.

Greetings! I come bearing genfic/friendship fic:

The Velveteen Spider [LJ notice | tumblr notice]
26k words | PG-13-ish | Natasha Romanova, Clint Barton, et al.

summary: Natasha Romanova thinks that accepting Nick Fury's offer to join SHIELD is the end of her old life and the beginning of her new one. In hindsight, she had no idea of what that really meant.

“You’re an idiot, Barton,” she said when he’d finished. “An amazing idiot.”

He made a dismissive noise as he shifted over to get up, presumably to go to the restroom. “Is that anything to say to your best friend?”

She looked up at him, shocked at the words. “Who says that you are my best friend?”

“You got any others?” he asked with a shrug. “Therefore, I am the best one.”

“That means you are also the worst one,” she called after him as he headed off, but she was just drunk enough for the words to float around in her mind like mosquitoes.

She remembered the conversation the next morning, when she dragged her hungover but far more sturdy self to SHIELD’s New York headquarters off Times Square to go get yelled at by Coulson in person. She could say that Barton was presumptuous for considering himself her friend, but it would probably be more truthful to say that he’d simply recognized it sooner.

That’s when she started calling him Clint, first in her head and then out loud. The first time, it slipped out and it startled her. Startled Clint, too, but he recovered and beamed at her and then continued driving like a maniac because it was the only way they were going to get out of Hungary alive unless they wanted to swim the Danube from Budapest to Vienna.

Author: Avenging Archer
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha, the usual SHIELD and Marvel characters
Word Count: Novel length ongoing WIP. Estimate when complete 80K words
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Some violence as per fitting a spy story, profanity suited to an ex military Army Ranger, some sexual situations and innuendo. No gratuitous gore or porn, but this isn’t a children’s tale either.
Many thanks to Alpha Flyer for betaing the early chapters!

Summary: She'd had no idea that such a coincidental meeting would change her life so dramatically. He'd spared her life, giving her a second chance to find purpose and a way to balance her ledger. Their friendship? She didn't over analyze it. It didn't need defining. It was hers. Hers and his. That was all that mattered…until he was compromised and she came face to face with Loki and found herself unwittingly compromised as well. Black Widow/Hawkeye. Movieverse with a touch of comic canon per author's prerogative.

“Are those shots I’m hearing?” Coulson’s voice came over his comm.

“No, they’re firecrackers!” Clint barked as he rolled off of Natasha.

She glanced at him as if he were crazy, then registered to whom he was speaking and proceeded to snort with amusement. Clint shook his head and took a quick assessment of the situation.

He didn’t like what he concluded. She had rolled into a crouch behind a nearby pile of rock, her face an expressionless mask of calm despite the fact that they were trapped against a wall with an indeterminate number of enemies firing from the abandoned building and all they had for cover was some scattered rubble and rocks from upper sections of the wall that had fallen over the course of time.

April 2006

Somewhere over Europe

"The Black Widow has been a very naughty spider over the past year."

Clint glanced up from his folder to look at Phil Coulson, whose lips quirked in a slight smile at his own joke, which for Coulson meant that they barely moved.

Clint smirked. He had never met anyone who could pull off expressionless as well as Phil. And it wasn't just his expression. Nothing seemed to phase the man. Ever. Even in the midst of a full out hand to hand fight, Coulson was all business.

And the man could kick ass, Clint knew that first hand, having had his own kicked a few times when he'd first come on board with S.H.I.E.L.D. and had the "honor" of having Phil Coulson assigned as his handler.

He'd been a cocky son of a bitch back then.

Title: Learning Natasha (Again)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] scribble_myname

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.

Rating: R
Warnings: Violence, including animal death. (Please see end of fic for specific warnings.)
Author's Note: I've loved Franzi's work for a long time, so I was super excited to get to work on her stuff for remix. It was hard to choose the story to remix, but on a walk one day, I started thinking about Natasha's affinity for languages, and what it might mean if she could communicate with Clint on another level. And it grew from there.
Fic I've Chosen To Remix: طائر غريب (Strange Bird)
Summary: Natasha has always heard the voices of the animals around her, but when a bird tells her to trust the strange man pointing an arrow at her head, she does.

Remix Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] allisnow
Pairing(s): pre-Clintasha
Rating: PG-13
Warnings (or 'I choose not to warn'): I choose not to warn.
Author's Note: I've never done a remix before, so when this exchange was announced I was excited to try. I signed up, got my assignment in turn...

...and panicked.

Allisnow is somebody I have referred to in the past as "the Michelangelo of the Clintasha fandom". White Blank Page in particular is literally the best case fic I've ever read.

To recap - I sign up for something I've never done before and the person I get assigned is Michelangelo and on the list is the Sistine Chapel.

No pressure. *g*

So I took a look at the other fics on the list and there was something about Out is Through that really spoke to me. I'm a sucker for Clintasha meeting stories, and telling Clint's part of that story seemed to fit the bill perfectly.

Why I ended up returning to White Blank Page to do a second fic...
Fic I've Chosen To Remix (please include link): Out is Through
Summary: He's read maybe a tenth of the intel available on the Black Widow, but Clint is sure of two things: 1. She's looking for a way out, and 2. She doesn't want to die.

Now if he can just convince his superiors that he knows what he's talking about, things might start changing for the better.

Title: The Past That Never Leaves You
Author: [livejournal.com profile] telaryn
Remix Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] allisnow
Pairing(s): Clint/Natasha
Rating: R
Warnings (or 'I choose not to warn'): I choose not to warn.
Author's Note: While I was working on my remix of Out is Through I decided to reread White Blank Page - primarily because I hadn't read it in a while, but also because I wanted to make absolutely sure I wasn't avoiding the potential to tell a story that was in me to tell. A lot of times when I'm inspired to write a fic it's because I've seen an "entry point" in canon that allows me to slide in, do my work and then leave.

I found that point in White Blank Page during my reread when I started drawing mental parallels between Kamala Menesh and Yelena Belova, Natasha's "sister" in the Red Room. What resulted wasn't a perfect "what if" by any means, but is definitely a story I am proud to say was inspired by allisnow's amazing storytelling.

Author’s Notes: Ambiguous 'verse. Inspired by the comics and movies and a whole lot of AU fanfic reading.
Summary: They haven’t really exchanged names. He’s Hawkeye and making a name for himself as a vigilante stopping robberies and underground lowlifes. She figures out quickly that is because he grew up among them and knows how and where they operate. She is… without a name. Nothing feels right to give him because whatever this is when they brush into each other, it’s genuine, and nothing about Natasha or Natalia or the Black Widow is genuine.
