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.

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.

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.

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!

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. :)

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.

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.
