A Gift From: [livejournal.com profile] findthesea
Type Of Gift:Fic
Title: i am my own savior, you are a companion
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] be_compromised community gift
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Brief mentions of abuse
Summary/Prompt Used: “This is not a beautiful life, Clint Barton.” (For the prompt: their lives were far apart, yet oddly similar: Clint in the circus, Natasha in the Red Room – both were made to perform at other people’s behest, and for other people’s profit. When they discovered choice, they chose…)
Author's Note: This is rooted a little more in comic canon than MCU canon, and it’s also technically an AU. But I started writing this when a plot bunny took shape in my brain and as with most things, it took on a mind of its own. Since you mentioned in your request that you didn’t mind letting the imagination run wild and free, I’m hoping you’ll enjoy!

Title: Room to Breathe
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] celeste9
Rating: PG
Warnings: Mentions of MCU-level violence
Summary/Prompt Used: Natasha experiences a rare moment of contentment as she reflects on the events immediately following the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. Her short list of trusted allies has gotten surprisingly longer, but one name still stands above all the others.
Author's Note: You had such great prompts, [livejournal.com profile] celeste9! I tried to work as many in as I could. But… Coulson and his crew were too busy to join in, the Avengers were spread too thin, Kate and Lucky were doing Christmas in L.A., and the dragons tried to eat the kitten. So, you are left with Natasha being introspective and coming to a pretty big realization. I hope you like it. And a very special "thank you" to [livejournal.com profile] wizbey for her cheerleading and beta. Happy Secret Santa!!

Rating: G
Warnings: None that I'm aware of
Summary/Prompt Used: Clint and Natasha meet when she picks up her daughter from Clint's classroom, and talk out how they'll make it work
Author's Note: [livejournal.com profile] ohmydarlingdear gave me awesome prompts that included Deaf Clint, teacher AU where where one is a parent of a child in the other's class and they meet when she's late due to a mission, and bisexual characters. I also threw in some past Maria/Natasha and Clint/unnamed male for the sake of the plot.

Title: Codes
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] jacedesbff
Rating: Teen
Warnings: None by Ao3 standards, mild sexual content, mild violence
Summary/Prompt Used: 4. World War II AU – I particularly like when they meet (or met) during the war and are reunited at the end of it. I’ve never seen one, but I could picture this working with a Cold War AU setting as well.

Type Of Gift: Fic & Wallpaper
Title: Keep Her In the Air (When She Ought To Fall Down)
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] eiluned
Rating: NC-17
Warnings:
Summary/Prompt Used: Believe it or not, babyfic collided in my brain with the idea of a Firefly AU. Angst with a happy ending played a part as well because...it's me.
Clint Barton and Natasha Romanoff were born - and in Natasha's case bred - to serve the Alliance. No one cared when they began sleeping together; under Alliance law an Operative like Natasha could take as many sexual partners as she liked so long as it didn't interfere with her duties.
A baby would interfere. As would the very deep and very illegal feelings growing between the Operative and her favorite sniper.
Now married and on the run for a new life on the Rim, with a baby due literally any moment, Clint and Natasha cross paths with the crew of Serenity.
Author's Note: Stepped a little far outside my comfort zone with this one, but when a story idea hits you as hard as this one hit me you just have to respect the muse and run with it. Hope it's everything you wanted, [livejournal.com profile] eiluned!

A Gift From: [livejournal.com profile] shenshen77
Type Of Gift: Fic
Title: Look How Bright We Are
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] findthesea
Rating: M
Warnings: movie type violence, description of injuries, blood, coarse language (a little)
Summary/Prompt Used: I went with the promp Accidental baby acquisition, BUT not in the fluff way and as [livejournal.com profile] findthesea asked, I got creative with it :) I hope you like it, dearest giftee and have a wonderful Holiday Season!
Summary: Natasha used to be a soldier, until one day she wasn't anymore. Nowadays, she works as a witness protection specialist and her boss, police chief Nick Fury, has a special assignment for her that will change her life.
Author's Note: This story was inspired by the German movie “Schutzengel” (Guardian Angel), but I decided to try a little role-reversal. If you have the chance to watch it, it is very much worth the time, a very solid action movie with great H/C moments and romance. So now you know what you're up for, I think :D
Title is taken from the song “Sum Of Our Parts” by Mary Lambert, which is lovely and totally screamed Clint and Natasha at me.
Heartfelt thanks to my wonderful betas and writing buddies (you know who you are <3), who have been a tremendous help writing this fic. You are the best, I couldn't have done this without you and I love you all dearly!

Title: Silence the Past
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] wizbey
Rating: M
Warnings: some scenes of torture
Summary/Prompt Used: Clint captured and experimented on by HYDRA/Red Room. Natasha isn't going to let that happen and goes to save him (off SHIELD's radar // with no help from SHIELD // present day rebuilding SHIELD with no resources exist). Bonus points for (fraction) Kate Bishop as Natasha's backup; Something with wings for the experiment on Clint; Cute comfort between Natasha and Clint.
Author's Note: Tried to MCU-ize a few characters here so I hope I did them justice. Loved this prompt and had a great time with this! Thanks to shenshen77 for the beta!

Title: zeus is bullshit
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] spyforaday
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: illness, injury
Summary/Prompt Used: Team fic, especially involving Tony
Author's Note: My lovely prompters prompts were just vague enough that I literally had no idea what to write. So I combined it with a prompt I received for last year's secret Santa; Natasha and Clint are complete without each other - but together, they are more than the sum of their parts. Or: Their lives are the richer for their love and it suddenly all worked out fine. :D Cut poem by glowflowr on tumblr.

the theory that people are always searching for their other half is bullshit. don't let anyone, not even a god, tell you you are anything less than whole )
