Hello all and welcome to your weekend entertainment!

This week's ATTF is all about the recs.

Comment with something that you'd like to read/see. It could be a specific fic, fanvid, graphic, meta post etc that you remember but just can't quite remember the title of or no longer have a link to. It could be something that you're really in the mood for, like hurt/comfort, Avengers as family, sexy times. It could be that you've recently gotten into a new Marvel pairing (or threesome or moresome!) or you're after something classic MCU or a type of AU or comics related or...anything under the sun or the darkest of starless nights. Please post an individual comment per request, but feel free to comment as many times as you want - like we do for prompts for promptathons. Basically this is prompathon but with recs. (Oh the cleverness of the title for this week's ATTF *grins*)

The rest of us will then reply with recs. Multiple recs allowed, self recs allowed, ALL THE RECS! I have faith in the vastness of your bookmarks.

And y'know what? If you want to share things and there's no comment request for that sort of thing? REC IT ANYWAY. Because sometimes we don't know we're gonna like it until we meet it :)



If you'd like to host an ATTF, suggest ideas, or see what's coming up you can find that all of that at our ATTF SIGN UP POST!

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.)

Hi all! This weeks All The Things Friday theme is Hidden Gems.

Those new shiny diamonds that have only just been uncovered. The lost or misplaced jewels, the ones discovered in the attic or at a car boot sale. The precious stones that may have been overlooked when in a treasure room full of precious things.

Rec us fics and vids and graphics and ALL THE THINGS that you feel are new and haven't received much attention, that are difficult to find, that were buried within events, fests, big bangs, or onslaughts of other great things and so perhaps have been discovered by less people than they ought to have been. Bring us the things that we haven't seen, that few of us have seen, that you really think we should see! BRING US THE SHINY.



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.)

Clark Gregg retreeted this buzzfeed post with "fake" magazine covers of The Avengers. It made me giggle, especially one cover. I know we've had discussions about this before about how the media would tackle The Avengers. I love Captain America's. I would buy that magazine in a heartbeat.

Relevant to our interests cover behind the cut )

Link to all covers
 
 
Welcome to another All The Things Friday! Your co-hosts this week are [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices and [livejournal.com profile] workerbee73.

First off, a note to say we have a thread at the top of this post for signing up to host, co-host, and/or to suggest themes for future All The Things Fridays. At the moment we have [livejournal.com profile] jacedesbff for February 1st and [livejournal.com profile] noblealice for February 8th (not sure what topics you folks are going with?) so raise your hands and bring your ideas :D

The theme for today, though, is a three part rec extravaganza. You can do one, two, or all three, or just join in the chatter!

1) rec a newcomer’s or underappreciated story (or artwork, or creative work) that you feel deserves some love.

2) tell us the first thing that you wrote/made in this fandom. (We’re thinking of doing a list of people’s first works that newcomers can add to, kind of a first time not-necessarily-rec list thing, so we can use these to kick off that list. You can tell us your first thing and then tell us that you don’t want it on the list though if you like.)

3) rec something you wrote/made in this fandom that you’re most proud of, or that’s your favourite.

Discussion Ideas: how have your thinky thoughts or creative leanings changed since that first thing you wrote/made? How far have we come since the film was released? What is it about the shiny new things coming through that are different, that have changed your thinking?

my three things behind the cut )

What’re your three things for this Friday?


And a few things to keep in mind:
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 has 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.)

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.
 
 
05 August 2012 @ 12:53 am
Mostly from tumblr, so apologies to people who’re on tumblr and may have seen a lot of these before. Let’s be fair though; they deserve a second look :)

Clint and Natasha like each other with short hair from hoursago

The Black Widow and Catwoman have a cup of tea from wondersmith

Natasha in action from blackbolfild

Natasha and Darcy bonding from lorabird

Steamy Clint/Natasha art from aim-full

Clint lunges! from hoursago because there needs to be Renner lunges in every movie *grins*

Natasha running from whileothersreap

Clint and Natasha remember Budapest differently from alexkolesar

Clint raises a toast in a pre-Avengers AU-ish gif from nami64

Natasha says she’ll shower elsewhere from arrowsandsnark

A mission in Paris picspam graphic from stormsabernathy

Natasha and Clint take a moment from jadenite

Hawkeye art from juliedillon

Black Widow and Hawkeye crossed with Disney quotes from gloriouspurpose

Natasha and Clint at night from m-ciao

Natasha art from saltbender

Natasha holds Clint from essouffle

Clint and Natasha spooning from takatsudon

Natasha portrait from weaver-of-night

A kiss from thistimebabyillbebulletfproof

And from gingerhaze we have Clint shooting Coulson’s coffee mug; Clint and Natasha ‘bro-cuddling’; Clint on the look out; Black Widow with River Tam; film Clint rocking the purple look; and Natasha and Clint, awesome partners.

Ending with: take a look at Wine Red from RussianRaccoon114 on YouTube which is Clint/Natasha vid with music set to art. It would have been great to have links to that art to a) credit the amazing artists and b) to be able to go and stare at each artwork, but if you’ve been following the recs on this comm you’ll probably recognise a lot of it and it’s a nicely done vid.
 
 
02 July 2012 @ 04:14 am
As always, I aim not to repeat anything already posted or recced. Forgive me if I do – there’s so much wonderful floating around!

One Vision: a team vid by Grammarwoman that grows on me more each time I watch it.

One Girl Revolution: a Natasha vid by hisGrLfriday on YouTube, because there can never be too many vids of Natasha being brilliant.

Things you need to know about Hawkeye is a tumblr post from blackinkedwings that might come in handy.

Here are two Avengers snippets from recessional on dreamwidth which are a bit of fun with Clint and Natasha, if you missed them on the original comment ficathon.

Down From the Bird’s Eye View by BlackEyedGirl on AO3 (Gen, 4642 words) is listed as Clint/Coulson, but note that Gen, because this is really about Clint slotting into the team. The summary is Clint has difficulty adjusting to people he has to deal with at ground level.

may the fourth by irnan on AO3 (Gen, 1762 words) is a fun team fic in which Natasha and Clint get to fight with lightsabres. (Blame Tony.)

And Many More by [livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade (Gen, 5000 words) is a fic about everyone in the team getting a birthday. Ouchy, sweet, and amusing by turns.

Things Ain’t So Lonely Anymore by [livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade (R, violence and torture) is set in [livejournal.com profile] hoosierbitch’s As It Is Written verse (which I’ve previously recced) in which Clint has dyslexia. It’s brilliant to see people tackling these subjects in fic, but you may need a hanky for this one, okay.

The Dinosaur Game by emmypenny on AO3 (Teen and Up, 2645 words) will cheer you up. You know when people say that something make them laugh out loud, but they really just mean it made them smile? This is one that actually made me laugh out loud.

But I Will Hold On Hope (And I Won’t Let You Choke by Perpetual Motion on AO3 (Teen and Up, 14,875 words) is Clint/Coulson, but there’s nothing more than kissing and please don’t let that put you off meeting this Clint, who does not make life easy for his handlers when those handlers aren’t Coulson.

Phil Coulson Can’t Keep the Avengers Out of Medical is a fun and funny team fic from scifigrl47 on tumblr in 6 parts (scroll to the bottom when following the link).

And yes, and back again by irnan on AO3 (Gen, 1579 words) is another fun and funny team fic. Just read the first section if you’re only in it for the brilliant Natasha and Clint section, but the whole thing is fantastic.

I don’t want to go on missions with him anymore is a Clint/Natasha gif from slemnn-e on tumblr and you really want to read the blurb on the right that goes with it.

Have some wow fan art from hoursago on tumblr.

And finally an amusing gif from mydoctortennant on tumblr of Clint and Natasha as parents.

Plus a shout out for the new comm [livejournal.com profile] marvelousladies - throw some Natasha wonderfulness in their direction as well :)
 
 
21 June 2012 @ 02:50 am
In celebraton of crazy amounts of tagging being done, woooo! Please do keep tagging and please do go back and check the tags added to posts that you've made.

As always, I aim not to repeat anything posted or already reccomended.

Vids

What I’ve Done: a Clint/Natasha vid by valamd on YouTube. “Can you wipe out that much red?”

You know my name a Hawkeye vid by luckysora on YouTube. You know the songs they have at the start of the James Bond films with the montages that are like fanvids themselves? Clint Barton: Master Assassin.

Do It Like A Dude a Black Widow vid by angelwings4191. I’m not sure about the song choice, but Natasha kicking ass and taking names is always good to see.

Remember The Name a team vid by gabygal7 on YouTube. “10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will; 5% pleasure, 50% pain, and 100% reason to remember the name.”

this is war… vid by angelwings4191 on YouTube. This song has been used in a lot of vids, but the editing of this and the inclusion of not just the team but a lot of others as well makes me like this one the best.

Art, Icons, Gifs, Graphics

The Hawk and the Agent by zoronoa on AO3 (Gen). A very nice pencil sketch of Clint.

Natasha being wow art by vengerturtle on tumblr.

Secret Mission artwork by lomonte on tumblr. See if you can spot Clint *grins*.

comics art posted by iamalfff on tumblr – Hawkeye, Captain America, and Iron Man as visualised in the films.

A bit from Clint’s comics background posted by assvenger on tumblr.

Good Avengers icon set with plenty of Clint and Natasha by paraliptic on dreamwidth over here.

A gif of Clint in the rain in Thor here at The Land Of Feelings on tumblr.

Further adventures of the Agents of SHIELD on tumblr here and here. I love this gif series.

an arrow in the knee originally from eazve on tumblr.

lovevengers, a love actually AU gif from assvenger on tumblr. Heh.

escapetofiction on tumblr has some great Clint, Natsha, Clint/Natasha, Jeremy, and Scartlett photosets.

Fics

progress reports, pancakes, and paper planes by such_heights on dreamwidth (Natasha & ensemble gen, PG13, 2400 words). Natasha nods. She thinks about everything that's happened, and she knows her answer. "Sure, I'm in. Sign me up to be a superhero."

Macho when you’re dead by [livejournal.com profile] ysande (Gen, G, one-shot). Clint doesn’t take sick days. Sometimes he really should.

As It Is Written by hoosierbitch on dreamwidth (Clint Gen, PG13, triggers: negativity about learning disabilities, verbal abuse). Clint is dyslexic. This is a heart-acher.

The Nesting Habits of the Wild North American Barton by sabinelagrande on AO3 (Clint/Coulson Gen, Gen, triggers: implied past trauma, 2934 words). He’s not a bird. He’s a human. He just likes to be alone. And another fic where I want to give Clint a hug. It made me smile too though :)

Some People Just Collect Stamps by Closer on AO3 (Clint/Coulson, Teen and Up, 9446). During shawarma JARVIS finds surveillance footage of an alive Coulson and the team break into the Helicarrier. The team break into the Helicarrier. Clint is sweet, Coulson ends up debriefing people, but the break in, that’s what you want to read this one for.

The Time to Find a Place to Land by BlackEyedGirl on AO3 (Clint/Coulson, explicit, 20178 words). The summary is By Phil’s count, this is his third attempt at bringing the Avengers together, although he will admit his participation in the second attempt was more symbolic than anything else. He hadn’t expected Stark to be the easiest sell, or Barton to be the most problematic, but things have changed since he’s been away. It’s fantastic watching the team come together in this, but what I really love in this is Clint, his anger and how he struggles, but still tries, to deal with everything.

the helicarrier by gdgdbaby on AO3 (Clint/Natasha and Tony/Steve Gen, Teen and Up, 3230 words). An avengers mockumentary fic. Hilarity.

The Great Kirk vs Picard Debate by Icarus_chained on AO3 (Team Gen, Teen and Up, 1263 words). You don’t need to know anything about Star Trek, just enjoy this lovely team bonding and bantering fic.

In Great Transition by vain_glorious on AO3 (Team Gen, Teen and Up, 3829 words). One by one, the Avengers move into Stark Tower. It’s sweet, it’s funny, and Natasha is the difficult one.

Know You Better Than You Want Me To by BlackEyedGirl on AO3 (Clint/Natasha/Coulson, Teen and Up, 5200 words). Natasha met Clint more than five years ago, under less than ideal circumstances. She met Phil five years ago, when things had got worse. Something different: an interesting AU with telepathy.

PDA, Assassin Style by Zinnith on AO3 (Clint/Natasha/Coulson, Mature, 920 words). There’s hardly anything about ‘bedroom activities and the mature is for violence. It’s a look at Clint and Natasha through Coulson’s eyes and them being Master Assassins.

Steady by [livejournal.com profile] pprfaith (Clint/Tony, PG13, 2200 words). Gen really, bar the last few lines. This is an Avengers/Highlander crossover, but Highlander is not a fandom of mine and I still find this fascinating and the writing is brilliant. All you need to know is that there are immortals who die but don’t stay dead and they’re all meant to hunt each other down and kill each other until there’s only one left. Seriously fascinating when blended with the Avengers.
 
 
10 June 2012 @ 02:14 am
As always, I attempt not to repeat. Some of these are from the friending meme though and I’m highlighting them here. Amazingly we have 260 members now, wow! If you don’t want friending, no worries, you can always just pop up and say ‘hi’ on our last welcome post. We like saying 'hi' back :)

Gifs, Art, Graphics

The adventures of Barton and Wade, Agents of SHIELD, continues to be hilarious and wonderful with this gif set in which Natasha makes an appearance.

A gif set of that Natasha and Tony ‘appearances are deceptive’ exchange from Iron Man 2 from quinnetpuck on tumblr.

Have a Jeremy Renner gif set from scornandritz on tumblr.

not lunge approved pants: a Renner gif set from scarlettjo on tumblr (and seriously Jeremy Renner?!)

Let’s be fair and have some pretty pictures of Scarlett Johansson as well, curtsey of experimentallycanthropy on tumblr.

And a Scarlett gif set from such-heights on tumblr.

her own woman: a Natasha gif set from monetstcroixs on tumblr.

Barton told me everything: hilarious artwork from lettiebobettie on tumblr.

Movie Night: cute and amusing team art from lomonte on tumblr. Also a Clint sketch from the same artist.

Washington: an AU gif set and short fic for Black Widow/Hawkeye from Street Of Mercy on tumblr.

Fics

you could burn matresses anywhere by yugimutos (weatheredlaw) on AO3 (Natasha/Clint, Teen and Up, 811 words). Summary: Natasha was born with red on her ledger.

no light in this valley by [livejournal.com profile] trysts (AU, Clint/Natsha, PG13, 7,630 words). Summary: 30 miles to water, 20 miles to wood, 10 miles to hell and I gone there for good. A Wild West AU.

Of Languges by [livejournal.com profile] queenriley (Natasha/Clint, PG13). Summary: After a life spent immersed in secrets, it was difficult to let go and learn to live without them.

one single static frame by (Clint/Natasha, no rating but I’d say R, maybe PG13). In which Clint is mouthy and Natasha is kick-ass.

we always headcanon the ones we love by nympheline on tumblr (Clint/Natasha, trigger warning for domestic violence, short). Summary: Clint and Natasha will never have normal lives. They have accepted this as fact. Once a month, they pretend by putting on some old rings and going to Ikea to pick out furniture. Or to Home Depot to look at paint samples. Or to Walmart to check out baby clothes.

I trust you like a shot in the dark by CallMeBombshell on AO3 (Gen, Clint focus, Teen and Up, 3,088 words). Summary: Clint visits Tony after the aftermath of Loki’s invasion.

Closure by [livejournal.com profile] strangevisitor7. A short little fic that answers what Tasha said to Clint to get that smile as they watch Loki being taken away. Because it will make you smile as well.

Things Friends Do by cruelest_month on AO3 (Gen, Team, General Audiences, 2,767 words). Summary: There are many things friends do. There are many things Avengers do. Some of these things include feeding ducks, flying kites, helping friends feel brave, building up a friend’s confidence, going to a carnival, and making crafts.
 
 
06 June 2012 @ 12:25 am
A huge amount of Iron Man 2 icons here by corelite with plenty of Natasha.

Have some Avengers Cast Icons from [livejournal.com profile] magic_art. You may need a fan.

I love this Clint graphic by talipuu on tumblr.

Amusing Team Avengers gif by hemsworthss on tumblr.

six deeply secret truths and half a dozen lies by sour-idealist on tumblr (Natasha/Pepper, PG13/R, 900 words). One for the ladies.

To Be Modified As Necessary by ignipes on AO3 (Team fic with Clint/Natasha one of the pairings, Teen and Up, 5912 words). Summary: They only need ten rules to ensure (relatively) peaceful cohabitation. Amusing.

Hope is Not a Course of Action by thatdamneddame on AO3 (Clint/Coulson, past Clint/Natasha, Teen and Up, 12,572 words). Summary: Clint loved Natasha like he loved a lot of stupid ideas. An interesting look at how Clint may join SHIELD with a mix of comics and film and a great Clint character study.

frame thy fearful symmetry by [livejournal.com profile] matryoshkha (Clint/Bruce, one shot, no rating but I’d say PG13). Forget the pairing, this is really about Clint and the Hulk and mostly Clint. It’s fantastic and very wow.
 
 
01 June 2012 @ 02:14 am
Apologies if I repeat anything that's already been posted or reccommended on here. There’s so much wonderful coming online that it’s getting more difficult to keep track :D

Fic

Moving The Furniture by sam_storyteller on dreamwidth has Steve losing his virginity to Natasha. Sweet, hot, and amusing with a fantastic Natasha.

RED by waldorph on AO3 blew me away. It’s Natasha/Maria, but Clint has a huge, important role. Natasha crosses over to SHIELD and reclaims herself.

come and go blues by [livejournal.com profile] gyzym at the americana ficathon, a wonderfully atmospheric story in which Clint never turns down a dare (Clint/Natasha).

Phil Coulson is Not the Avengers’ Public Relations Manger by scifigrl47 on AO3 is a team fic with a focus on Steve and Tony, but I love Clint in this and you should check out scifigrl47’s other stories as well because she’s fantastic at delivering a story with a point and real comedy that also manages to touch your heart.

Vids

Black Widow/Hawkeye – without you: a vid by innocentagain on YouTube, I can’t face the dark without you.

The Bourne Legacy Trailer featuring Jeremy Renner, also known as Clint Barton. Possibly relevant to your interests.

Art, Gifs, Comics, Pretty Pictures

This is one of my favourite things, so cute and amusing! By katiebell42 on tumblr.

Captain, it would be my genuine pleasure by americanite on tumblr (Clint).

Natasha art by vega-of the-lyre on tumblr.

Avengers Assemble: the butt picture by T1mco on deviantart is amusing and also butts ;)

Here and here are two Clint/Natasha takes on A Softer World comics from dissociate on tumblr.

Amusing gif in which Tony accidentally gets Steve addicted to shawarma and Clint doesn’t want it again from obsessivelyobsessed on tumblr.

Gif for the next Bourne film by catching-everlark on tumblr. Jeremy Renner, okay?

And More

Why I haven’t recommended this yet, I do not know: a Clint/Natasha tumblr. Art, graphics, fics, gifs, shiny things. They’re our tumblr equivalent :)

Sign ups are open for Marvel Universe Big Bang 2012. I love the ideas and prompts happening over there, but it could always do with more Clint/Natasha ;)

And there’s a multifandom End of Virginity Challenge happening where the point is to write a ‘first time’, any kind of first time, and make it realistic. Open up the debate around virginity or just showcase the many different types of first experiences that people can have. (Possibly a cheeky rec, because this is on my journal, but also possibly relevant to your interests!)
 
 
Again, aiming for no repeats :)

Team Fics Of Wonderful
Fifteen Short Stories About Teamwork by BlackEyedGirl on AO3: what it says on the tin.
well, let the drum beat by jonesandashes and pollyrepeat on AO3: this is the shawarma fic that I wanted, where the shamarma is the first of many team meals on the the road to friendship.
the way out is through by Nokomis on AO3: the summary is little by little Natasha becomes part of the team Seriously good Natasha fic.
The Sky and Everything Beneath It by jibrailis on AO3: the summary is Steve goes on a roadtrip to clear his head, but the other Avengers won't leave him alone. I love this.
Avengers: Epilogue by samstoryteller on dreamwidth: this is a fixit fic. It has Clint and Natasha in a bath. Do you need to know anymore?
Tex-Mex, Lies, and Facebook by [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis: a post-movie coda in which Natasha has Clint's back.

Possibly relevant: [livejournal.com profile] striped_fic has written a Clint/Darcy trilogy, which is Darcy-heavy, but it's good Darcy and has a great Clint: It's Electrifying, The Heart Is My Least Vulnerable Spot, and Don't You Know There's No Modern Romance.

Graphics, Arts, Icons, And Pretties

Graphics and gifs to delight your eyes at the tumblr belonging to Street Of Mercy.

Clint and Natasha in Miami: art by sairobee on tumblr.

[livejournal.com profile] isntiticonic has an icon batch with some good Clint/Natasha ones here.

Possibly relevant to your interests is a cinematic timeline of the marvel films so far, all official and from marvel: here.

that awkward moment when two master assassins resort to hair pulling and biting: gif on tumblr.

master assassins: a gif by vibranium on tumblr.

nothing we were ever trained for: a gif by kissfistthat on tumblr.

Clint Barton and Wade Wilson: Agents of SHIELD by justmybones on tumblr: one, two, and three. You do not need to know who Deadpool/Wade is. Just enjoy two snarky people.

And More

A big list of Avengers reaction posts and reviews collected by liviapenn on dreamwidth.

Black Widow Meta from gyzym on tumblr.
 
 
18 May 2012 @ 12:07 am
[livejournal.com profile] lady_sesstra pointed me to Rivers and Roads by Shtuff in the comments of an earlier rec post and now I direct you! It's a post-film recovery fic with beautiful use of repetition and a lovely motif of Clint not being able to leave Natasha behind.

Over on AO3: Budapest by Kayim, a short fic in which Clint and Natasha do some fighting and Clint asks if Natasha remembers that time in Budapest, and what a smile means by victoria_p, which is Natasha/Steve but oh, Natasha.

On the back of [livejournal.com profile] sugar_fey’s fic rec of we were emergencies, DO check out the art that inspired that fic, the art for the fic, and the artist’s tumblr (link to art tag, but there’s other goodness on there as well).

Have Clint and Natasha armed and in Budapest artwork from armedbasterds on tumblr.

In The Bullpen by genusshrike is a Black Widow vid that owns my soul (and has Avengers film footage for the win).

And graphics relevant to our interests behind the cut:

Natasha is peeved, Clint had sex, and there is trouble )

Hope I’m not repeating anything and that you find some things you like :)
 
 
15 May 2012 @ 10:44 pm
Recs in which I attempt not to replicate anything that’s already been on [livejournal.com profile] be_compromised, which is all amazing you lovely people!

The writer of Thorazine For The Lady, Knives For The Gentlemen, which has been recced here before and is brilliant (edit: um, oops, no it hasn't, but it is a brilliant Clint/Natasha fic!), has a lot of other great Clint and Natasha things on her tumblr that you should check out, including a dark Clint/Natasha AU. My favourite of hers at the moment though is 10 things Pepper knows about Natasha (and one thing Natasha knows about Pepper), a gorgeous, fun, and funny friendship fic (with some Clint in the background).

For more ladies being awesome, check out this comment fic by [livejournal.com profile] midnightcuppa with Natasha and Agent Hill, written for the prompt women in a male-dominated profession.

Clint and Steve get to have a moment in Every Friday After The War by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes (with some background Natasha).

Still Officially Lost by pollyrepeat on AO3 is a fun and touching Clint backstory fic in which Coulson, newly acquired by SHIELD, is assigned to look after a teenage Clint who is in some (read: lots of) trouble. No Natasha and no pairings, but fantastic Clint.

Also from AO3:
In Return by Siria is badass Natasha with backstory hints.
Account Rendered by Siria is Clint lying in the debrief about his first meeting with Natasha.
Team Building (with Star Wars) by eiluned has some great Clint and Natasha.
The Only John Wayne Left In This Town by gyzym is Clint/Darcy, but trust me here, because Clint has a secret love of the banjo and it starts with Clint being on the cover of Rolling Stone and having to explain this to Fury and SHEILD and you will love it. Also, he teaches Natasha guitar and there is Clint backstory.

There is a Natasha prompt fest happening on Dreamwidth here. This fill in which Nat is sick and Clint brings orange juice is my favourite so far.

Take a look at widowmaker’s tumblr for Avengers graphics and short fics, including Clint and Natasha graphics and art that are all kinds of wonderful. Her Avengers hash tag. Seriously, do not stop, do not collect £200, GO.

And, finally, Joss Whedon thanks the fans for all The Avengers support. Maybe it’s not entirely relevant to your interests, but it’s Joss and he says thank you :)
 
 
14 May 2012 @ 05:38 am
From the tumblr of sairobee I bring you art relevant to our interests:

the killing moon: Clint Barton art.

Hawkeye/Black Widow sketch: what it says on the tin, PG.

Valentine: to summarise would be to spoil the funny :)

And an amazing Budapest graphic from nami64 on tumblr: you and i remember budapest very differently
 
 
10 May 2012 @ 11:35 pm
