Pairing: Clint Barton & Natasha Romanoff; gen
Warnings: None
Summary: Clint has more than a few concerns about Tony's new Avengers themepark. Trouble is, no one wants to hear them from the focus group's "least marketable Avenger." Looks like he'll just have to investigate for himself. As usual.

In the beginning, the idea is Tony’s. And of course it is -- Nobody else would be capable of coming up with such a spectacularly crazy and yet also somehow ingenious endeavor.

Well, back up. That isn’t exactly right. Really the idea begins with Steve, on the day he comes in to his own weekly briefing meeting looking uncharacteristically forlorn. Clint notices--was aware even before Steve’s entrance that something is off because today Steve is late, and that never happens short of an actual global catastrophe. He doesn’t say anything, though, because it doesn’t seem like any of his business.

“What’s wrong, Stars-and-Stripes?” asks Tony, who apparently does not have any of the same reservations. He leans back in his chair and props his feet on the edge of the table, which earns a look of mild disgust from Natasha. “Shield get a scratch?”

TITLE: Everything You Say (Sounds Like Gospel)
AUTHOR: [livejournal.com profile] enigma731
PAIRING: Clint Barton & Steve Rogers (friendship/gen), background Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff
SUMMARY: Clint thinks he probably shouldn’t be surprised by anything after having his mind hijacked by a god, saving the world from actual aliens, and eating lunch across from Tony Stark. But even after all of that, he still isn’t expecting Captain America to visit him in the hospital.

Title: Time's Arrow
Rating: PG13 (for some swearing)
Warnings: off-screen death of an OC's spouse mentioned;
Characters/Pairing: Clint/Natasha, Tony/Pepper, Thor/Jane - Clint, Tony, Natasha, Steve, Bruce, Darcy, Pepper, Erik Selvig, Thor, Jane, Henry V (yes, that Henry V)
Tags: Adventure, Humour, time travel, a bit of Steve melancholia, a lot of Clint & Tony; Natasha & Team

This was part of the Avengersfest exchange, so has been up on AO3 for over a month under "Anonymous".  Written for Jadesfire. Something completely different for me -- my muse telling me that I really should try some magic stuff for once.  (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] frea_o!)

Summary: Clint looks down into the valley. The low afternoon light glints off the metal armour worn by the men on horses; the majority of the leather-clad foot soldiers are carrying long bows: Ironman and Hawkeye, times a few hundred or thousand, in the original version and most definitely unplugged.

“I don’t think it’s a question of where we are, but when we are.”

Title: set the world on fire [1/?]
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hermyfan & [livejournal.com profile] sevengiraffes
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha (developing), Pepper/Tony (background), Bruce/Betty (past)
Word Count: 2618 (this chapter)
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Author’s Notes: So this is the Hogwarts AU that me and sevengiraffes have been working on for quite some time now. We're playing fast and loose with timelines, so all you have to know is it's set in modern times, but at Hogwarts. Also everyone is a teenager. It's mostly gen (at least, that's what we're aiming for) but I always end up writing things from a Clint/Natasha slant, so we'll see how it turns out.
Summary: Natasha and Bruce are starting their sixth year at Hogwarts. But, dumped by his girlfriend over the summer, Bruce isn't looking forward to this year quite as much as he would otherwise be. And then their inseparable potions duo is broken up and Natasha is paired with the arrogant and useless Gryffindor, Clint Barton, while Bruce ends up with the irritating but brilliant Tony Stark. Whatever they expected, this year promises to be nothing like the one before.

Title:  The Skies Over Manhattan
Author:  [livejournal.com profile] alphaflyer

Word Count:  22,000 (Chapter 3:  app 9,000)
Rating:  T
Warnings:  None, really. The occasional spot of angst on Clint's side.
A/N:  Thor.  We don't really see enough interaction between him and Clint (or Natasha), except for that old trope where he hogs the popcorn (and -tarts) during movie night.  (If you know of a story where they have an adult conversation, please rec!!!)  Anyway, this is the third part of my post-Manhattan vignettes, in which Clint (and Natasha, although to a lesser extent) figure out how and where they fit in this team of superheroes and mere humans.  Lots of incidental Clint/Natasha interaction as they, too, learn about new relationships (my head canon has them getting together in the aftermath of Loki's takeover attempt).

You find it on

Amazing how much editing and writing you can get done while in recuperation mode.  (Thanks to all those of you who sent good wishes for my Big Surgical Adventure -- I love this bar and the people in it!!)

I don't want to dump these all in separate posts so there are a couple of fics under the cut. Several are multi chapter. Everything is labeled with appropriate warnings. If you ever think one of my fics needs another warning, please don't hesitate to let me know!

Livejournal hates my super long chapters... so sadly, I'm sorry, a lot of stuff will be linked over to AO3

Sometimes I think maybe I should get a life. Then I just drink more coffee and write more random stuff. )

Excuses made. One day I'll stop making excuses. Thanks for reading, per usual. <3 you all. (Dear g-d, what did I *do* before I wrote fanfiction and read fanfiction all the time?)

Prepare for shameless, shameless, pathetic fluff. Also, I'm incapable of writing a 5+1 as a 5+1, so this is a 5+1+1+1. Bonus chapters? Sure.

Title: Love You Like a Love Song

(OR: 5 Times that Natasha and Steve did not understand a pop song + 1 time that Clint understood a pop song and Natasha did not + 1 time that Natasha understood a pop song that Clint did not + 1 time that the whole team understood a song)

Disclaimer: Characters are Marvel’s. Story is mind. Headcanon is my crack.

Rating: PG

Warnings: Angst. Lots of it.  Feels. Some fluff.

Author’s Note: I have feels sometimes. Forgive me for some fluffy cheesy crack.

Summary: Unfortunately, pop music was inherent to the culture and they were subjected to it, again, and again, and again. By proxy, due to Natasha’s temperament and Steve’s insatiable curiosity, their teammates were also subjected to their reactions to it. Again, and again, and again.

But you CAN'T set fire to the rain. It's impossible. )

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I’ve been catching up on my fic reading :) As always, I aim not to repeat anything that’s already been posted or recced on the comm, but we’ll see how that goes. (If you'd like more recs including things that definitely have been posted on the comm and some things that aren't Clint/Natasha, I've just posted a huge rec list on my journal as well. Some of these recs are taken from there.)

Fic, Icons, Art, Graphics, and Pretty Things behind the cut )

PS. I have this problem where I have to tag, because I sorted the tags, but there are a lot of recs and a lot of tags *shakes head at self* so poke me if there are tags I need to add.

Title: if ever two were one
Fandom/Pairing: Avengers, Clint/Natasha
Rating: T
Word Count: 5150
Spoilers/Warning(s): spoilers through the end of Avengers
Summary: Five ways the Avengers found out Clint and Natasha were married, and one way they didn’t. Featuring domesticity, scrambled documents, Tony and Pepper getting their snoop on, and of course some general badassery.
Notes: 5+1 fics are my favorite things in the whole wide world next to puppies and tiramisu, and it only seemed natural to write one for my new favorite fandom.

Title: if you let me through the door we can let the world in (1/?)
Pairings: Clint/Natasha, Tony/Steve
Characters: Can I say "everyone" and save us all some time? Team!fic.
Rating: T
Word Count: 4181
Warning(s)/Spoilers: spoilers through the end of Avengers; implied sexual relationships, blatant disregard of canon character death
Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Summary: Tony Stark has always wanted a clubhouse. He gets something more than that. (Or: Tony is a big softie, Natasha doesn’t like to share, and Thor just likes it when everyone gets along.)
Notes: The Clint/Natasha is mostly implied in this chapter, but it'll get clearer in future chapters, I promise! Cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] avengersblend.

Tony finished the renovations on Monday, and by Friday, the Avengers had moved in.

Title: 5 Things Hawkeye May Have Been Reading at Shawarma (1/1)
Pairing/Character: Clint/Natasha, The Avengers
Word Count: approx. 1700
Rating: PG-13
Summary: See title.
Spoilers: If you haven’t seen the movie, this won’t make much sense
Disclaimer: I do not own the characters and will not be making any money off of this.

A/N: I've become a little obsessed with what Clint was reading at shawarma. So I wrote this in speculation. Each one represents a different theory separate from the others (as in, each one is in a different universe). I have to say, it was fun coming up with the possibilities. I hope this inspires others to take up the challenge of figuring out what he was reading. :D (Or if anyone actually knows, I'd love to hear it!) [As a note, the timeline doesn't quite mesh on Take 1 based on when the author started writing. I'm taking some creative license!]

In my fic journal.

Quick note: Snaps to anyone who recognizes the book from Take 4. :D Also, my sister Meagan says I should write a sixth take in which Clint is reading Fifty Shades of Grey, and I really did try, but I simply could not come up with a remotely believable reason for Clint "Hawkeye" Barton to be reading mommy porn (and I've read it - perhaps that contributed to my not wanting to inflict it on Clint). Sorry, Meagan! LOL

Again, aiming for no repeats :)

Team Fics Of Wonderful
