Clint/Natasha, Clint/Natasha/Bruce
Natasha/Tony, Natasha/Bucky, Natasha/Bruce
Clint/Hulk, Clint/Darcy, Clint/Bruce, Clint/Sam, Clint/Steve, Clint/Coulson

A Tempest a Day: A Non-Ship-Focused Clint and/or Natasha Reclist

For [ profile] alphaflyer, who mentioned wanting something short to read after a long day, I found one of my favorite fluffy Clintasha fics. Can't get me enough of Liho and Lucky :D This fic is set in Fraction and Aja's Hawkeye verse, featuring Kate as your friend who you really should listen to more often than you do.

  Serendipity, by silverfoxflower

  "Why are you still in bed?" Kate demands, kicking at a corner of Clint’s mattress, which, rude. Why were girls and cats always so rude to him.

  "Lucky turned into a cat," Clint says, burying his head in the pillow. "I’m hoping that if I wake up tomorrow, he’ll be back to normal."

So, people don't really post recs here all that much any more do they? Well, Imma change that, because guys, you gotta read this if you haven't already. I reread it recently and was reminded all over again just how wonderful it is. It's Steve/Bucky and Clint/Nat, but I promise that those pairings are largely irrelevant. The most important thing is that this Clint is fucking stunning.

the hurts of human life by actonbell

"Oh, well, you know," Steve tried, but Clint tilted his head, still keeping Steve's eye, and said, direct as Sam that day by the reflecting pool, "You don't know how to handle it, do you?"

"Excuse me?" Steve said, only out of the pure reflex politeness Sarah Rogers had bred into him before he was six years old.

"Grief." Clint's look was unsparing, merciless, but held no judgement, either. "The loss. The pain, the anger...." He waited, but Steve couldn't say anything any more than he could look away. "So you tried to make a deal. Dedicate your life to what's left, do what you can do. Strike a bargain that would make it all go away -- only you can't. It won't. And it never will."

Steve's throat was dry, so he took a long drink of water, and then another one, trying to think of something to say that wasn't How do you know? or No I'm fine thanks or even just Fuck you, but when he looked back up, Clint was actually smiling, a little. "Or you can tell me I'm wrong."

COMNUNITY BANNER: a colourful one from [ profile] perpetuations for May! If you’d like to make a banner for the top of our community please do – we love having new banners every month! Send them in to
A couple of things to note )

CIVIL WAR: has arrived and our discussion post is over here! Please don’t discuss the new film anywhere else on the comm until we announce otherwise (after the film has been released worldwide and people have had a chance to see it) so that people can avoid spoilers if they want to.

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: You can sign up to host, suggest ideas, and see what’s coming up at our sign up post. No hosts on the post means not ATTF, so do come and play – we have spaces for the 20th May onwards. And as a heads up, this Friday our community will be four years old! So we’ll be having a good old fashioned getting-to-know-you friending type party ATTF :D

IN THE WIDER WORLD WIDE WEB: Marvel Big Bang is in business for 2016 with lots of options for taking part - sign ups are open for authors until 15th May, sign ups for artists are open until 3rd September, and tandem sign ups until 15th May. Het Big Bang sign ups are open for authors until 17th May and they’re also after artists, beta readers, and cheerleaders. Heroine Big Bang is back in business – look out for a revised/new schedule. There’s also Femme Remix accepting nominations until 8th May, Every Woman accepting nominations, and an LBGT Fest accepting prompts until 31st May. And probably more things that I’ve not spotted!

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: We're starting this again - that's our Friday party posts that carry on into the weekend - THIS FRIDAY with Three Sentence Fics. Ask and ye shall receive ;) That means we also need VOLUNTEERS for hosting future Fridays - further information and sign up sheet HERE. If there's no one signed up to a Friday, that means it doesn't happen, so run don't walk!

REMIX EXCHANGE: We had one of these back in 2014 and keep your eyes peeled, because we're looking at doing this again towards the end of this month/start of April. A remix is, essentially, fanfiction of fanfiction. You create a fanfic using someone else’s fanfic as a starting point. Examples of remixes include writing the story from another character’s perspective, an interlude between scenes, taking the fic in another direction after a certain point (what if this character did X instead of Y?), etc. Further informaton on the way!

IN THE WIDER WORLD WIDE WEB: There's a new Black Widow comic just started, by Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, and Matthew Wilson. Marvel Is Marvel gift exchange sign ups are open. This year's [ profile] halfamoon is now closed; have a nosey for things relevant to our interests, like this female-centric fanvid recs from [ profile] streussal featuring Natasha and other Marvel ladies.

What else is going on? Got any recs for us? Shout out in the comments!

Marvel Announces Full Phase 3 Slate at Special Event

No Black Widow movie, BUT there are "plans in which Black Widow is a key, key role" (per Kevin Feige).
26 September 2014 @ 12:22 am
So. Chances are that if you are like me, you own a few ::cough:: Hawkeye and/or Black Widow pieces of merchandising.

I’m putting this behind a cut because it's image heavy. Entertaining, though! )
