Promptathon 2018  
It’s finally here! No, not Avengers 4, shush, it’s time for be_compromised EPIC SUMMER PROMPTATHON!!!

Just before we get started we do have some info and rules we’d like you to read…

HOW PROMPTATHON 2018 WORKS

Step One: leave prompts

Prompts can be anything – simple or elaborate, words or pictures, songs or poems, lyrics or phrases, anything that inspires a fanwork. Use your imagination. Go wild! All we ask is that you place anything NSFW behind a cut or link, use warnings where appropriate, and spoiler-cut anything spoiler-ish.

We welcome ALL THINGS MARVEL, but we do like it if Natasha and/or Clint is in there somewhere, individually or as friends, lovers, spouses, partners, in gen fic, ANYTHING. That means we do welcome other characters and pairings (and threesomes or moresomes). See here for more info, and always feel free to ask a mod if you have any questions – there’s even a handy questions thread at the top of the promptathon below.

Leave as many prompts as you want. We’re serious. Keep coming back. We want as many prompts as we can possibly get. Just make sure each prompt is in a separate comment.

Step two: squee

Been wanting to jump into the fandom but not sure where to start? Now’s the time. Newbie or a lurker? Here’s the perfect opportunity to say hello! Promptathon is a fun, no-pressure environment. If all you want to do is post prompts and share in the squee, you’re more than welcome! And by squee we mean chatting in the chat thread, replying to prompts to chat about prompts, and just lots of excitement all over the place.

Step three: submit fanworks like there’s no tomorrow

The usual Community Rules apply. There’s no length requirement on fanworks submitted. You can write drabbles or epics, vids, art, fanmixes, anything at all; it’s just all about getting creative! You can fill as many prompts as you want, and prompts can be filled multiple times by whoever wants to fill them.

A reminder: the comm is no longer a spoiler free zone for Infinity War but NO SPOILERS for Ant-Man and the Wasp please!

HOW TO POST

1. Respond in a comment to the prompt you are filling. Try and post the entire work in the comment (if it's short enough), or if not, post a link. Do not post works to the comm. We’re all about one-stop shopping, so try and post in the main promptathon post if the length allows. If it is too long to post in the promptathon post, consider posting the first section as a teaser and then a link (because that's always fun too.)

2. Label your submission in the subject line with FILL, the type of fanwork, your title, and any warnings. Example: FILL fic: 5 Times Clint and Natasha Were Awesome (PG) When filling in the subject line, you may need to view the comm in its original style (if you don't already). Just make sure you can see a subject line when responding with your submission.

3. Be sure to leave ratings and warnings (if any) in the subject line. (See example above.) Help us out and make sure folks know what they're clicking on. Thoughtfulness = LOVE. If the ratings or the warnings won't fit in the subject line, just leave them at the top of your post. If you don't want to include warnings, please put 'I choose not to warn' in the subject line, or again at the top of the post if it doesn't fit.

4. Please put anything NSFW under a cut or link. Put any spoilers under a cut or link with an appropriate warning.

TIMELINE

TODAY: Prompting starts! GO, GO, GO

If you have any questions about anything feel free to ask! We have a questions thread in the post below and you can always comment to or PM a mod.

FILL fic: Warmth (General, no warnings)
I combined your two prompts - hope you don't mind!

---

During Natasha's first year, she doesn't ask for anything, even basic survival items like food and water. She definitely doesn't ask for things that might be considered creature comforts. It drives Clint nuts, but he can't quite figure out how to get through to her that she deserves certain things.

After one particularly annoying assignment, they wind up secure in a small safe house but soaking wet and without a change of clothes.

Natasha huddles in the corner, shivering. Clint's learned from experience that she won't like it if he offers even the barest hint of assistance, so he keeps quiet, even though it almost physically hurts him to do so. But when her lips start to turn blue and her shivering goes from barely noticeable to something much more pronounced, he can't ignore it anymore.

Cursing, he grabs a blanket from one of the cots and throws it at her. She hastily wraps it around her body and the shivering eventually subsides.

Clint vows right then and there to never let her go without anymore.

---

It's several years later, and they've evolved into the formidable Strike Team Delta. They're a team of only two, but that suits them just fine. No messy interpersonal relationships to deal with. But it also means they have to learn how to rely completely on one another and communicate their needs, no matter how inconsequential those needs may seem. It takes some time, but it happens.

When they get stuck in a remote area of the Caucasus Mountains, they take shelter in an abandoned shepherd's hut. The only potential source for heat is a stone fireplace in the corner, but there's no firewood.

Natasha stalks around the small space, muttering in Russian. Clint doesn't catch all of what she says, but he catches enough.

He grins. She still has trouble asking directly for things, but she's much less hesitant about making her needs known.

He finds some moth-eaten wool blankets in a trunk in the corner, pulls one out for himself and then another two for her.

“Here. Blankets. Since you won’t quit complaining about the cold.”

---

They've been partners at SHIELD for nine years, partners in life for an additional three.

There's a blizzard brewing outside and Natasha is huddled in the window seat, a cashmere throw wrapped around her body and a mug of hot tea grasped tightly between both hands.

"I hate the cold," she mumbles.

"I know." Clint pries her fingers loose and sets the mug aside, then settles himself behind her on the window seat and wraps his arms around her. "Don't worry. I'll keep you warm."

FILL drabble: you need time, but i'm not afraid
“I didn’t want to,” she says, miserable. She can’t even look at the bandage plastered across Clint’s shoulder. “They got into my head.”

“I know,” he says. His eyes are too kind, his words too gentle. This is not how the story ends, in her experience. Failure equals abandonment, punishment, pain.

“I’ll miss working with you,” she mumbles; considering she almost killed him, she thinks he deserves the honesty.

Clint leans back, confused. “Miss? Where you are you going?”

Natasha sighs. “Aren’t… you turning me in?”

He shakes his head. “All is forgiven, Romanoff. I swear. Now get some sleep.”

EDIT: I don't know if there's a way to make the comment shorter, I'm unfamiliar with dreamwidth *hides*

Note: mentions of spitting up blood and smoking cigarettes.

He's dreamt of meeting the Super Soldier ever since Barney had read about him in the papers Clint sold for 10 pence a piece in Waverly, to earn a penny or two. Their father went away to the war, to Hawaii, where he thought he'd be safe if the United States entered the war. Harold had said that the fighting would never come to the island, and he'd be back as soon as possible.

They got a letter some weeks after Christmas of 1941. Barney had been the only one to know how to read at the time, and he had left out the details of the attack. Clint learned about it over the reels before movies in the theater though. Edith didn't know what to do with herself when she learned that her husband had died.

Barney enrolled in February. Sent away in March, after he passed the physicals – he's the son of a butcher, he's got strong arms and the army can use butchers. Clint tried to go too, said he was a good shooter. He would go into the woods to kill larger game that him and his brother would part for the sake of getting protein on their plates.

Winter in Iowa isn't kind.

He doesn't hear from Barney for some months, which turn into years.

Clint watches the war unravel on the news reels, and Clint watches Captain America sell bonds as he travels through the country. He even attends one of the shows, but he can't get any good seats and he doesn't have a lot of money to use to buy bonds with, anyway.

He lies on his enlistment form in the Spring of 1944, and gets shipped off to Azzano. He's barely 17, and is clutching the rifle he's been given, and the knife, and whatever else he can hold. This isn't like the bow he's used to hunt deer. He's here to shoot Nazis, they tell him.

The Spring is cold, though, and as he sits down, listening to Captain America trying to perform in front of the rest of the 107th, he gets caught in a fit of coughing. There's blood in there, and it takes him a while to get his lungs under control again. Someone hands him a cigarette, and he lights it with the zippo he's engraved with his mom's name. He doesn't have a girlfriend back home, so his mom was the only one he thought of.

He looks over to the guy next to him, who's also carrying tomatoes, and frowns. Captain America is trying to do good. He was a small guy too.

Before long, there's throwing and screaming and the dancing girls are back on stage. Clint gets off his ass and climbs away, passing by the other guys, moving to the edge of the encampment. The men are tired, and he hasn't seen any real fighting yet.

His lungs feel like they're burning, and he wonders if he'll ever see the vast plains of Iowa again. Instead, he's stuck here. Trying to fight a war he's too young to be a part of, really.

He sits and watches as Captain America discusses with the Colonel, Chester Phillips. A girl comes over, and he initially thinks that she's with Captain America's dancers, but she looks at him and smiles. She hands him a cigarette, and lights it for him.

“You spit blood, yes?” she asks, and he can hear the accent in her voice. She isn't entirely sure, but he'd think she was Russian. She's young, like him, and has the most beautiful red hair he's ever seen. He nods, though, after a couple of seconds.

Heaving a puff of smoke into his lungs, it stops the scratching inside his lungs until he exhales again.

The next day, he learns Steve Rogers sneaked off into the HYDRA encampment. It's only when the 107th comes marching through, led by the man himself, with Sergeant Barnes by his side, that Clint realizes that he's way out of his depths.

What's a 17 year old kid like him going to do here?

It's only some days later, as he's sitting on a tree branch and watching a deer walk through the forest that he hears her again. He looks above his shoulder, and watches her speak with Sergeant Barnes. They exchange for a bit, and she points to Clint.

Picking up some plants in front of him, Clint begins to weave them together as the Sergeant comes towards him. “She says you're the best shot in the entire regiment.”

“And, who is she?”

Barnes laughs. “Nobody you'd want to be cross with,” he retorts and looks at her walking away.

“You're the one she calls Hawkeye, right?”

“Call me Clint,” he laughs, trying to suppress a cough that's seeming to burst his lungs apart. “I'm not some fancy soldier like you or Captain America. Hawkeye is a nickname, not one I asked to get, though.”

“I hear you shoot better than me, and that's not something the colonel says lightly.”

“Heard absolutely right,” Clint continues, and watches a smile spread across Barnes' face.

“Well, if I promise you a date with the redhead, will you follow me and Captain America into the Alps? There's a HYDRA train we have to capture, and we could use the best shot in the batallion.”

*

Note: It's the idea that Clint contracted tuberculosis while in Europe, but I'd make it so that he didn't know.

The Knight Wonders What, Exactly, He Rescued by Jeannine Hall Gailey

His hands are full of brambles, and the woman
in that tower a bit more feral than anticipated;
it turns out she had a bone collection
and a habit of turning princes into toads.
With her hair cut short, sometimes her eyes
and cheekbones look so sharp she reminds him
of some forest creature gone astray in a floating green dress.
He makes dinner for the two of them,
gently snapping asparagus in two, cutting
the fascia away from a chicken breast with a sigh.
A backfire, a black spire, a fear ark, a fae bicker:
a creature with a beautiful song and sharp claws.
Nothing the way he'd pictured it.

Farm AU where Barney keeps it going, with Lucky trying to help, while Clint is off being a master assassin.

Bonus: Kate has a habit of popping in and out whenever she feels like it much to Barney's annoyance. Because he needs advance notice if the guest room is going to be properly aired out.

Natasha requests/takes assignments undercover in lots of different job roles (eg IT support, shop assistant, paralegal...) as a kind of self work experience crash course, because she has no idea what else she could do for a living and she wants to explore that.

Which would be easier if he actual undercover SHEILD job didn't keep getting in the way...

Clint Barton didn't give up collecting strays just because he became an Avenger. AKA how did it take until Wanda for the other Avengers to notice? (Or a 5 times fic for each time an Avenger notices?)

Whatever strays you like! But ideas... So there was the homeless person he gave his apartment to, because Clint lives in the Tower now and whole he's still paying rent just in case as a back up plan someone might as well be using it. And that person who may have been leaning towards villainy but Clint gets them a job/intern role at Stark Industries to give them a chance. And there's a cat that lives in the Tower lobby that the door guards and receptionist will never admit that they've unofficially adopted after Clint asked them to look after it for a bit and kind of never took it back....

Poly relationship (three or more) where it's not about everyone having sex together but about people fulfilling different needs/roles for each other. So perhaps the people who like being domestic or cooking together,the ones who like dressing up and going to the theatre and fancy events together, the ones romantic, the ones yep having sex, just all different relationship threads but all partners in this together and balancing things out.

When Clint moves in to the Tower he starts doing DIY and making changes. It's nothing he needs to bother Tony with, okay, but turns out even though he's fine with water fancy rain showers are a trigger, so he juat needs to change the shower attachment. And amend a few sight lines. And...

(BONUS: Slowly Nat, who'd refused to move in, starts spending more time at the Tower too, because Clint's apce is becoming a safe space, and then he makes some adjustments for her too...)

E-sports AU.

Clint and Natasha are on rival teams in the League but came up together so the fans are really invested in their relationship. Especially since they're in the top tier of players and whenever the teams play each other it eventually becomes a Hawk vs. Widow side battle.

they'll livestream together occasionally and throw out so many in-jokes fans become convinced they're together in real life and are just trolling people.
