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.


 
 
Title:  "Rain on the Scarecrow"
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alphaflyer
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None, but possible spoilers for Age of Ultron (based solely on the trailers, and speculation)
Characters: Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton, Thor, Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Pietro Maximoff, Wanda Maximoff,spoiler character )

Summary: When the Avengers need a break, Hawkeye takes them in. (A/U, canon divergence)

A/N: I haven’t seen Age of Ultron yet, so tagging this as containing “AOU spoilers” is perhaps a bit of a stretch. But I’ve seen the trailers and read some of the speculation, especially about “That Farm” and the people on it -- it is those things that inspired this tale. So if you want to remain completely unspoiled for anything you might see, do not read this story until you have seen the film (and then snicker at how far off I was!).

The title is taken from John Mellencamp’s eponymous song; [livejournal.com profile] spyforaday may not even remember suggesting it to me as a “Clint-type of song" but she did, so this story is for her. Infinite thanks are due to my BFF Runawaymetaphor and to [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic, who made this much better than it started out.'


The first thing Natasha notices is the change in the light; the second is the absence of sound, once the noise of their arrival has settled.

 
 
Title:  "Whistle Stop"
Author: alphaflyer
Rating: PG-13
Category: Gen, Crossover (Guardians of the Galaxy)
Characters: Clint Barton, Yondu Udonta (cameo/background appearances by Tony Stark, Natasha Romanoff, Steve Rogers and Peter Quill)
Relationships: Clint/Natasha (implied)
Beta: kylen

Summary: Clint is asleep on the couch when the spaceship lands on the helipad.

[Today's ATTF post is brought to you by [livejournal.com profile] crazy4orcas, who was unable to be around to post in-person. Let's get a good discussion going for when she can chime in. :)]

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week and is up for having an even better weekend.

This Friday, I’d like to chat about Gadgets, Weapons, and Technology. We’ve seen some pretty awesome things in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and our favorite master assassins have gotten to use some of them. With the Age of Ultron behind the scenes pictures floating around lately, we’ve gotten some teasers about what new toys might be in the works.

[spoiler photos under cut]


Like Natasha’s motorcycle:

and Natasha with a pair of fighting sticks

and Hawkeye in his new uniform

These pieces of spoilery eye candy have gotten me thinking about what other kinds of new gadgets, weapons, and technology we can hope/expect to see in Age of Ultron. Is there anything in particular you’d like to see Clint and Natasha use?

Do you have a headcanon for Clint and Natasha’s suppliers? Do they solely rely on SHIELD? Or Stark? Or do they have their own, private suppliers? Maybe they retrofit commonly available weapons on their own?

Do you have any recommendations for fic that includes our favorite couple using interesting gadgets?
So, first round of drinks is on me – Cheers!

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.)

Hello, best bar in the world!

We're going to take things easy today and go a liiiiiittle bit off topic. That's right, it's time for... (drumroll please)...

attf

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

This movie came out in US theaters last weekend, but I realize not everybody has had a chance to see it yet. For those of you who have, what are you thoughts? Loved it? Hated it? Wondered why the raccoon talked like a 1940s gangster?
Was Baby Dancing Groot not the greatest thing ever?

So come one, come all, come flail!

Please note that on this post all spoilers are fair game, so read the comments at your own risk! Also, if you haven't gotten your prompts in for the Promptathon, you might want to mosey over and do that, as we're shutting that post down very soon.

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.

Title: Shards
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alphaflyer
Remix Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] i_llbedammned
Pairing(s):  Clint/Natasha
Rating:  T
Warnings:  none apply;
Fic I've Chosen To Remix: "Innocence"
Summary:  Natasha, picking up the pieces.

In [livejournal.com profile] i_llbedammned's story "Innocence" (link above), Natasha reflects on her blood-stained past and on the role Clint plays in her present. It ends with Natasha recalling, “… the times when they just met in his shitty apartment and ate dinner together. The pain would just melt away into warmth. Maybe this was what innocence felt like.” I liked the idea of Clint’s place providing Natasha with an emotional anchor, and decided to explore this in the context of the events of CA:TWS.

This story is a companion piece to "Safe House" and "Recurve". Note that this apartment is not the Hawkguy place in Brooklyn, but rather my head canon one from my story “The Skies Over Manhattan”, which I started to write long before I ever picked up a comic.

Thanks are due to [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices and [livejournal.com profile] franztastisch for early brainstorming and cheerleading, and to Franzi for the beta. Any mistakes that have crept in since are my own.  Thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] sugar_fey for organizing the exchange!

 
 
Hello, bar patrons!

I don't know about you, but I am still having a lot of Winter Soldier feels. So I thought today we would take advantage of new canon flails and have a Winter Soldier-inspired three sentence ficathon.

Here's how it works: Post a prompt and someone responds with a three-sentence fill. Make sure each prompt is a separate comment, so we don't miss anything! For fills, please put rating and any necessary warnings in the subject line.

Also please be aware that this post may contain spoilers in the comments!

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.

Hello bar, and happy Friday!

It's finally time to discuss Captain America: But It's Really A Black Widow Movie Winter Soldier!

So, what did you think? Come flail, discuss your head canons and your hopes for future MCU installments.

Please note that on this post all spoilers are fair game, so read the comments at your own risk!

ETA: Go here to rec or list Winter Soldier related fics. :)

Hello, best bar! Captain America: Winter Soldier is being released next week, and any new movie in the MCU is a reason to celebrate. But let's be honest, there's one thing we've all been wondering: what exactly have Natasha and Clint been up to in the two years since we've seen them on the silver screen?

So throw out your best guesses, worst-case scenarios, or any side missions and vacation time they might have taken after Avengers. Have our favorite spies been on undercover or harrowing missions in the interim? Is it possible that Clint went off the deep end of the sanity pool, a la Selvig in Thor: The Dark World? Or does your headcanon have them joining the Boy Band Spectacular and taking Tony up on his offer of life in the Avengers Tower? And how, precisely, did the necklace of fandom fame come into the picture?

Of course, if there are any pre CA: WS fics that you have written or feel fit your theories, feel free to rec them here. :)

NOTE: Please avoid spoilers! Speculation and trailer content are fair game; all confirmed spoilers should be kept quiet until everyone has had a chance to see the film. :)  I have it on good authority that there will be another opportunity for discussing the movie post-release, so please save it for the future!
