256 comments, 6 pages, 17 fills and that's a wrap for Promptathon 2017. Huge thanks to everyone who prompted, created, beta read, commented, waved those cheerleading pompoms, and took part!

If you still have prompt fills that you’re working on or feel inspired by prompts now or in the future, you can still create things for them and post them to the community as usual. We’ll love them; they just won’t count as part of promptathon.

Until next time folks, enjoy reading your way through the masterlist and carry on being amazing! :)

So I guess I could have been writing promptathon fills, but instead my brain gave me this. I have no idea guys.

 Little Beast
Parings: none
Rating: M
Warnings: violence, abuse. See story notes
Word count: 3655
Notes: Title and cut quote from Little Beast by Richard Siken. Thanks to [personal profile] geckoholic for encouragement, [personal profile] inkvoices for beta and probably some mild fever dream I didn't notice I was having for everything else.

that’s a nice touch, stains in the night, whiskey and kisses for everyone

Title: for the half of ourselves we have lost
Pairing: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov/Laura Barton, Laura Barton/Natasha Romanov, Laura Barton/Clint Barton
Warnings: no specific warnings, heed the few specific warnings on specific chapters
Rating: Mature
Author's Notes: This is the third installment in my OT3 series and it's finally complete. You don't need to read the other stories to read this one, which picks up after AOU and during/after the events of Civil War.

Natasha says, "No matter what happens, this family will always be the one thing we have. We’ve all put each other through too much shit to let anything come between us.”

Clint says, “You know what it means to owe a debt, Nat.”

[a family picking up the pieces, before and after the war]

Read on AO3.

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: The Hot Light
Parings: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov
Rating: Teen
Warnings: fluff, donuts
Word count: 2667
Notes: Inspired by a post here at be_compromised from December 2013 (yep, this was started that long ago) about the Empire Magazine Winter Soldier cover.

Steve pointed down the street. “The Hot Light is on,” he said again quickly, “and I needed you and Clint so we could each get a dozen.”

Natasha looked in the direction Steve pointed and rolled her eyes. “Krispy Kreme, Steve. Really?”

The Hot Light

Special thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] enigma731 for the cheerleading and beta. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] shenshen77 for the read through.

Title: I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning - Chapter 7
Parings: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov, Kate Bishop/America Chavez, past - Clint Barton/Jessica Drew
Rating: R
Warnings: usual stuff
Word count: 9728 (this chapter)

In which there is a trip to the beach.
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!

Okay, technically this is ATTS but as I write this, it's still Friday on the West Coast of North America, so.

This weekend (and until the next ATTF rolls around) is your chance to unburden yourself of your troubles with pesky Works in Progress.  You know, the things that have been sitting on your hard drive forever and that won't finish themselves no matter how hard you stare at them.  Or even just the ideas that won't quite gel - you know, the ones that need a nudge to turn into an actual story. (This used to be a regular - Wednesday - feature of the comm, and is quite possibly the reason "Highway of Diamonds" got written.)

Come and get inspiration from your friends in this wonderful comm!

-  Tell us about the corner you've written yourself into - maybe someone can help you out?

-  Tell us which plot hole you're stuck in - maybe someone has a tow line?

-  Tell us which character arc you're thinking of that seems off - we'll give them a stern talking to and get them to cooperate.

-  Give us an excerpt that we can ooh and aah over, so as to inspire you to continue!

There are some amazing writers on this site that are only to happy to help out, be used as a sounding board, cheer you on or give you a little push.  Because we are selfish if there is one thing we like, it's more great Clintasha fic!

Things to remember:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
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.)

Title: You'll Hum This Tune Forever
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/Characters: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov
Word Count: 1770
Summary: Clint doesn't plan on moving anytime soon, could wait for morning right where he is, and gives a discontent huff when Natasha stretches out against him, yawning as well, and then pushes herself upright.

Her smile in response is fond and amused, the way someone would look at a puppy who's being especially adorable, if a little dense. She stands and extends her hand, and ohh, well yes, that changes things.

Title: We Set The World To Rights
Rating: R
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Kate
Word Count: 3170
Summary: “If you like being tied up so much, well. I’ve been the expensive elite version of a girl scout, which means I know pretty good knots, and I’m sure we can find some rope around the place if we go looking. We can take care of that right here. No need for you to go and get yourself...”

And right then and there Kate loses her train of thought, because they’ve been together for a few months now but she doesn’t think she’s ever seen Clint’s pupils dilate so fast and so suddenly.

read it on AO3
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: None
Pairing: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff
Characters: Clint Barton, Natasha Romanoff
Summary:  Three long-distance Christmases, plus one that finally wasn’t.

A Gift From: [livejournal.com profile] alphaflyer
Type Of Gift: Fic
Title: Hearth
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] findthesea
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None
Summary/Prompt Used: Power comes in many forms. -- An amorphous blend of the following prompt snippets: "What happened after Civil War? Basically, I just want a fic about what happened to our assassins ... Natasha, Laura and Clint ... after Ross finds out about Clint's "secret" life.... domestic stuff, slice of life, mission fic, ... found family... magical realism... I LOVE Laura Barton and want her involved always."
Author's Note: In my head canon Laura was an analyst for S.H.I.E.L.D. and Nick Fury’s EA when she and Clint met, and continued to telework for Fury even after the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. (hence Clint’s desire to turn the dining room into a “workspace for Laura” in AoU).

A Gift From: [livejournal.com profile] spyforaday
Type Of Gift: Fic
Title: Sighting the Target
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] i_llbedammned
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Gun references, gun/canon-typical violence, a few four-letter words
Summary/Prompt Used: I combined two prompts: Clint and Natasha have to team up to save the day as assassins try to get them; Natasha and Clint go on a double date with Tony and Pepper
Author's Note: This takes place not long after The Avengers and only involves Clint, Nat, Tony, and Pepper. I hope this hits the high points of my giftee's "yes's".

Type Of Gift: Fic
Title: Just His Luck
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] perpetuations
Rating: PG
Warnings: None that I can think of
Summary/Prompt Used: Noir/Crime/Roaring Twenties AU: It don't mean a thing if I give you my heart.
Author's Note: I tried to highlight the war feeling of the WWII/Noir Era and tried to give their own spins on the classic Noir themes. I also really liked writing Natasha and Clint on a mission because Clint's style to me is a lot more fly by the seat of your pants and hope for the best where as Natasha is carefully reasoned and measured.

Type Of Gift: Fic
Title: Turn Off The Lights, Run For The Woods Now
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] franztastisch
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Alcoholism, withdrawal, mentions of child abuse and vomiting.
Summary: Clint learned how to save himself, and do it all on his own. In hindsight, that's the biggest lesson Barney ever taught him. Turns out it's one hell of a double-edged sword, and near impossible to unlearn.
Author's Note: This is ran away from me and turned really very terribly sad, and I am totally up for an IOU on an replacement gift if you find it to be too sad. Also, I’m sorry. Sort of. A little.
