TITLE: How to be a Heartbreaker
AUTHOR: enigma731
PAIRING: Clint/Natasha
SUMMARY: “You want me to teach seduction,” Natasha says disgustedly.
Fury sighs. “The official name of the course is Interpersonal Espionage Techniques.”
“Seduction,” she insists. “I’m a spy, not a school mistress.”
He raises an eyebrow. “Interesting choice of words there.”
NOTES: I started this for [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices' mini promptathon prompt, but then it got way too long for the 3 week deadline. I hope you all enjoy it now!

Title: between the bullet & the blade
Author: gsparkle
Pairing/Characters: Clint & Natasha
Word Count: 4250 (this chapter)
Rating: PG
Warnings: Mild language
Summary: Natasha joins SHIELD, learns how to be a person, and occasionally kicks ass. In this chapter: Clint has a LOT of books.
Author's Notes: I collected a bunch of prompts that didn't really fit anywhere else, so I decided to make a series out of them that begin with Natasha joining SHIELD. It updates about once a month, with each update being a complete ficlet. (i.e. no cliffhangers!) Read it here on AO3!

TITLE: Right Between the Eyes
PAIRING: (gen) Natasha Romanoff & Peggy Carter, Peggy Carter & Dottie Underwood, Clint Barton & Natasha Romanoff
WARNINGS: Graphic depictions of violence
SUMMARY: When Dottie Underwood suddenly appears in the twenty-first century, Peggy turns to the best contact she has: S.H.I.E.L.D.'s very own Black Widow.

TITLE: Red Eye
PAIRING: Clint/Natasha (although this is more early partnership/friendship than romance)
SUMMARY: Newly-partnered agents Barton and Romanoff are sent undercover to investigate an allegation of fraud at the county fair.

The mission is a joke.

Well, more of a test than a joke, or at least Clint is pretty sure that’s the point. It could also be a punishment, he supposes, but regardless of what it is, he’s annoyed.

The person of interest is a middle-aged man named Mark Yazbeck whose sun-wrinkled skin reminds Clint of a crumpled up piece of paper. He’s the current owner of Yazbeck Amusements, a traveling carnival and midway company. A carny, as far as the public is concerned, but Clint can’t help viewing the commercialized rides, games, and food carts as something less than the authenticity he remembers from his own days with the circus. Regardless, Yazbeck and his show have become the latest suspects in a case of small scale identity fraud, which apparently now is S.H.I.E.L.D.’s problem. It’s admittedly deplorable, but also exactly the sort of thing local law enforcement or the FBI ought to be handling, Clint thinks, if Fury wasn’t in the market for a training exercise.

Clint Barton & Natasha Romanov, Phil Coulson, Bobbi Morse

completed a few weeks ago for Marvel Bang 2015. This story takes place one year after Clint makes the unexpected choice to bring Natasha Romanov in from the cold. They've become co-workers and acquaintances, but Natasha is still as much a mystery to Clint as she was on the day he was first sent to target her. A story about making friends and making choices, set against the backdrop of daily life at SHIELD.

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.

Warnings: injury
Disclaimer: lies and untruths
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices. Thank you again!
Notes: written for [livejournal.com profile] alphaflyer as part of [livejournal.com profile] igrockspock's winter fic exchange. Essentially amounts to Melinda, Maria and Natasha in Austria saving Clint's arse. Go team!

They were in the Central Alps in Austria, in December at night fall, because if Clint Barton was going to be compromised, he was going to do it properly. And apparently that meant doing so in stupidly inaccessible places in the snow.

Title: featherstep
Author: [livejournal.com profile] _samalander
Remix Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] franztastisch
Pairing(s): Clint&Natasha friendship
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.

( She grew up hearing their songs. )

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.

Author: scribble_myname
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha
Word Count: 1743
Rating: Teen
Warnings: Canon-Typical Violence, Adult Situations
Author’s Notes: For the language and translation square on my trope bingo card.
Summary: Natasha does not like this English. She could not make it do what her tongue wanted, to tell Clint in words somehow what he was to her, but there were no words in any language but the language she knew, the language of hands and eyes and fist and wrist and steady breaths and strength at her back.
