[avengers] blackhawk smiles

(no subject)

sleep like the dead
rating: g
character: Clint Barton, Nick Fury, Natasha Romanoff
warnings: none
summary: Turns out SHIELD doesn't have a policy requiring naps before debriefings. Which is a real shame, because right now Clint could settle for one lasting a thousand years or so. Two, on the outside. Just without the 'shriveled and dead' part that usually comes with it.

author's note: For crazy4orcas, who prompted "Clint/Natasha - napping." All due respect and references to The Mummy.

He could blame his drifting attention during the debriefing on the fact that they’ve been up for the past forty-six hours.Collapse )

the hill
rating: pg
characters: Natasha Romanoff/Maria Hill
warnings: chose not to use
summary: She remembers the first time she heard someone say, "That is not the hill I want to die on." At the time she thought of high ground and tactics and an abiding scorn for accepting one's death as a given.

author's note: Day 7 of 12DoW.

She remembers the first time she heard someone say, "That is not the hill I want to die on."Collapse )

call and response
rating: pg
characters: Clint Barton, Natasha Romanoff
warnings: none
summary: "Stay with me," the woman he has brought in asks, and Clint has only one answer he can give. (The evolution of Strike Team Delta, in three questions.)

author's note: Day 6 of 12DoW clean out.

"Stay with me," she says quietly, this woman who has been on her own for so long, who still looks for exits and sight lines and the nearest threats she must defend herself against.Collapse )

where your soul meets mine
rating: pg
characters: Clint Barton, Natasha Romanoff
warnings: injuries
summary: Natalia Romanova has never met Clint Barton. He has never met her. But when she wakes up in SHIELD's training gym, and he in the Red Room's facilities, they learn what that kind of life looks like, sight unseen.

author's note: For spyforaday, who in the be_compromised 2015 promptathon posted, "Being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Clint and Natasha are victims of a body swap."

Day 3 of the 12DoW clean out.

She comes to within a hairs-breadth of killing the man kneeling above her, ready to push off the mat and go for his throat.Collapse )

[AU] alternate universes

(no subject)

graveyards
rating: pg
characters: Jane Foster, Thor
warnings: none
summary: Jane is willing to spend her life chasing after the truth. She just didn't expect she might lose it because of unknown saboteurs - or lose the starship she's worked so hard to come see.

Or: A quick glimpse at a universe where Thor is still an alien, Jane is still an academic with her heart set on the stars, and danger is still around every corner. Some things never change.

author's note: Day 3 of this year's 12 Days of Winter hard drive clean-out.

It wasn’t every day that an Academic got the chance to set foot on a boneyard world with an Asgardian for a guide, and Jane was planning to make the most of it.Collapse )

hawk and hydra
rating: g
characters: Natasha Romanoff, James "Bucky" Barnes, Pepper Potts, Tony Stark
warnings: none
summary: As the dust settles in D.C., the world turns to hunting down HYDRA while Steve chases after the Winter Soldier. Natasha, meanwhile, has her own search to make for a missing archer - and the three things may be more connected than anyone else realizes.

author's note: This is a purposefully incomplete story. The two scenes below came from a prompt by inkvoices:

"No one hears from Clint during the events of Cap 2, or after. Then there's a rumour, or some 'evidence' that he's dead. But Fury, Coulson, Bucky... there's a lot of this 'supposedly dead' going around.

In which Natasha doesn't help Steve and Sam chase Bucky because she's got her own 'dead' guy to find. In which Steve, Sam, and Bucky may eventually join Natasha's manhunt. In which so might the rest of the Avengers. In which everyone becomes pretty convinced that sometimes people do actually die. Everyone except Natasha."

What if Clint had been captured by HYDRA? After all, if you're going to imitate or use the staff, what better subject to study than someone it has been used on before? These scenes are all that came of the prompt, but I like them nonetheless. Enjoy a glimpse of the Barton Manhunt 2014!

Day 2 of this year's 12 Days of Winter hard drive clean-out.

He finds her in a diner outside of Cleveland, lost among the winds of the Great Lakes and the souls of two million people.Collapse )

dramatic flair
rating: pg-13 for language
characters: Clint Barton, Melinda May
warnings: none
summary: It's no surprise that the mission didn't go to plan when the agents involved were a showboating archer with something to prove and a silent one-woman army. That doesn't mean they can't find common ground to stand on, though.

author's note: For alphaflyer, who prompted, "Clint & Melinda May!" Thanks to findthesea for the AoS-related assistance. :)

Day 1 of this year's 12 Days of Winter hard drive clean-out.

“Aw, c’mon, it wasn’t that bad.”Collapse )

with gratitude
rating: g
characters: Clint Barton/Laura Barton/Natasha Romanoff
warnings: none
summary: You've got to keep your energy up when you're healing - and when you're taking care of the Avenger who seems to be in a constant state of injury. Or: Clint attempts to make breakfast for the two women in his life.

author's note: For crazy4orcas, who prompted "Clint making breakfast in bed." for Polyshipping Day.

Clint is a good cook.Collapse )

three beats
rating: g
characters: Laura Barton/Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff
warnings: none
summary: It's an honest answer for a simple question. At the end of the day, you love who you love.

author's note: For edgarblackthecyborg, who prompted, "Dancing to the rhythms of the heart. =)" This is likely not what was intended, but it stuck.

“The heart wants what the heart wants,” Laura says with a shrug, her elbows resting on the flour-dusted counter and traces of peach filling smeared on her rolled sleeves.Collapse )

hand in hand
rating: pg
characters: Wanda Maximoff, Clint Barton
warnings: possession/mind control and its emotional effects

summary: She reached out for her brother. Something terrible reached back.

Sometimes family isn't what you're born with or what you lose; it's what you choose.

It begins, as terrible things almost always do, with darkness.Collapse )
