Apologies that this took so long to get organised, but we now have a shiny new subfolder in the comm's Secret Santa Exchange AO3 collection for this last year. (Shh, it's still January.)

Both subcollections, for 2012 and 2013, can be found HERE.

Basically, if you've posted or want to post the gift that you made for Secret Santa to AO3 you can type Be_Compromised_Secret_Santa_2013 (AO3 may make it Be_Compromised Secret Santa 2013 (Be_Compromised_Secret_Santa_2013) instead) into the box where it says "Post to Collections / Challenges" when posting a new work to AO3 or updating an existing work, and ta-da!

PS Don't forget you have until February 11th to submit banners for February's Quick And Dirty Challenge.
 
 
 
The last of the Secret Santa gifts have been posted! Reveals and a Masterlist will happen on Sunday, and there should be some shiny participation graphics and such soon as well. HUGE round of applause and seasonal joy to everyone who took part - you are all made of wonderful and you made some wonderful things. Give yourselves a pat on the back! And then when we have reveals you can give each other a pat on the back as well ;)

Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Some knife-play, controlled (but non-graphic) bloodletting
Summary/Prompt Used: “Natasha uses something like BDSM to get Clint back on track aafter the Loki Incident.” “Clint’s turned on by Natasha speaking Russian.”
Author's Note: Thank you for this. Seriously – when I got your request it was like Christmas for me, because if you’d asked in advance what I love to write involving Clint and Natasha it couldn’t have been any more perfect.

Title: If I lose Myself
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] shenshen77
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Mentions of Past Torture
Summary/Prompt Used: Clint has always helped Natasha with her nightmares, but when Clint starts having nightmares after the Loki Incident...she is at a loss of what to do.
Author's Note: I hope you don't mind the tiny crossover with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, I just love the idea of Natasha and Melinda talking.

A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] jacedesbff
Rating: Mature
Warnings: None
Summary/Prompt Used: He moves with a certainty, a sharpness she isn’t sure she’s ever seen before, not even in the handlers she left behind after so many years.

Title: On the Horizon
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] sienamystic
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Summary/Prompt Used: They drove with no destination in mind. Just them, the stars, and the open road ahead. Prompt used: Dusty American road trip.
Author's Note: I love road trips so when I saw the prompt I knew what I was going to write. And I had so much fun looking up things that Clint and Natasha could see that was different and fun at the same time. Takes place post-Avengers but pre-Agents of Shield (so Phil is around). Hope you enjoy it!

A Gift From: TaleWeaver
Type Of Gift: Fic
Title: Of Love, Loyalty and Shovels
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] whiskyinmind
Rating: M. Swearing and discussions of violence and sexual relationships.
Warnings: Written in near-total ignorance of the Aja/Fraction ‘Hawkeye’ canon, because every time I try to get my hands on the 1st trade edition, it’s sold out. Including three different stalls at Comic-Con!
Summary: As Clint’s apprentice in hero-ing (hero-ism? hero-ising?), Kate believes it’s her duty to give Natasha ‘the shovel talk’, and it doesn’t matter HOW terrified she is.
Author's Note: I had a great idea for the Secret Santa... then I realised it was actually a sequel to what I wrote last year, and thus wouldn’t exactly be ‘secret’. So I tried this instead... hope my recipient likes it anyway!

Summary/Prompt Used: Clint as a country sheriff dealing with mysterious murders on his home turf, Natasha as an FBI bigshot (or someone impersonating an FBI bigshot) +1 for Kate Bishop as a deputy or as a nosy teenage detective.

Summary/Prompt Used: Clint as a country sheriff dealing with mysterious murders on his home turf, Natasha as an FBI bigshot (or someone impersonating an FBI bigshot) +1 for Kate Bishop as a deputy or as a nosy teenage detective.
Author's Note: I combined two of the prompts. You'll see. Thanks to my betas, who shall remain nameless.



“Special Agent Romanoff,” the redhead said. She stuck out a hand, and Clint shook it, feeling a little star-struck. He hoped it didn’t show on his face. She pulled out a wallet and showed him her ID card and badge. “I’m with the FBI.” )

Title: утверждение (assertion)
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] bluflamingo
Rating: M
Warnings: nudity, aftermath of New York, wound-tending (though no blood)
Summary/Prompt Used: Clint and Natasha are picking up the pieces and each other after the battle of New York.
I used the prompt: Clint taking care of Natasha after the movie - she must have had some serious bruising, not to mention nearly being flattened by the Hulk. I had to adapt it a bit, as I don’t think Clint left the fray unscathed either, right? Anyway, I hope you enjoy :D
Author's Note: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bluflamingo for such a plethora of lovely prompts, making it hard to choose just one. I hope you enjoy your gift!
Thanks to C, A and F for your input while creating this, I loved our brainstorming sessions and that you shared your thoughts with me. I couldn’t have done it without you, you are amazing! An extra-special thanks to my betas A and S, you are awesome, thank you for being thoughtful and encouraging always! And last but not least thank you [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices for organizing this exchange, you rock!

Rating: PG
Warnings: A scene with CPR/resuscitation procedures
Summary/Prompt Used: Strike Team Delta doesn’t require a S.H.I.E.L.D. extraction plan, except for when they do. Enter Coulson and his Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Type Of Gift: Gift Basket (Fanmix)
Title: A Compromised Position: a Clintasha Fanmix
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] chrisfaithalin
Rating: PG for language
Warnings: Some songs contain lyrics that may be considered explicit depending on your sensitivity
Summary/Prompt Used: From unstoppable tactical partnership to irrepressible committed relationship
Author's Note: Listen as Strike Team Delta evolves from the most successful partnership in the field into the intense, personal partnership they’ve denied themselves for years. Call it Clintasha, call it BlackHawk, call it cheesy, but these rock tunes tell a story of insecurity, of compromise, of understanding, of lust, of love, and a devotion that defies explanation and transcends gods, monsters, and super secret government organizations. (10 tracks)
Disclaimer: For the record this is all for fun, not for my profit, I paid for each and every one of those tunes, nothing was pirated, and I love that I'm introducing this music to a new audience.

Rating: Teen
Warnings: None
Summary/Prompt Used: Clint has an affinity for tacky airport souvenirs and candy with loud wrappers. Especially when they come with the added bonus of driving Natasha crazy. [Prompt: What they do to entertain themselves and each other (or keep from killing each other) during the long flight to their next mission.]
Author’s Note: The souvenirs in this fic were inspired by/found on Crap Souvenirs which is hilarious and totally worth a look if you’ve got some time to burn.
