If this is going to work, Clint needs to remember that Thor is not his brother.

QUESTION: Where do people think Clint was around the time of 9/11? What were Natasha and Bruce and Tony doing then? (Steve was still on ice and Thor was still being a bit of a shit on Asgard so they're easy). This would have been 2001. Was Clint freelancing? Was Natasha still with the Red Room or was she freelancing? I'd assume Tony was still making weapons. What would his reaction have been? Or Bruce?

QUESTION: Is 2012 the accepted date for the alien invasion? Does the US release date of the Avengers mark the date of the invasion? E.g. the Battle of New York took place on May 2nd 2012. And what would it get called? We call it the Battle of New York, but would it get a shorter name like 9/11 did? Would it beome May Second?

QUESTION: 9/11 being the huge political and culture shift that it was, especially to the West, what do we think would have been the political and cultural shifts worldwide connected to the Battle of New York? Are the Scientologists feeling validated? Are the Westboro Baptist Church denying everything? Is the more or less suspicion surrounding the secret sercives and covert operations branches of various governments? Has it lead to more or less international co-operation?

QUESTION: What would the Memorial to the Battle of New York look like, and where would it be? Stark Tower is largely intact, unlike the Twin Towers, so it can't go on the site of the incident. Bathesda Terrace? Would the general population understand the significance? Are the Avengers depicted in the memorial? How much are they linked? Or is there an emphasis on the efforts of the emergency services and National Guard? How involved would the Avengers be in this?

I'm not sure I want actual answers to this. Or more... I'm not sure I want a discussion. I'd just love ideas. I just suddenly realised that in MCU, the Battle of New York would eclipse 9/11 in many ways, and considering the impact of 9/11 polically and culturally, the Battle of New York in the MCU would have a MAJOR impact.

(If someone wants to write the story for either of these - the Avengers at 9/11 or the impact of the Battle of New York - or know of a story that deals with them, please write it/send it my way)



The memorial question I'd totally want answers to though. My brain won't stop having ideas about it.

I went to Oxford yesterday. 8+ hours in a car to see original maps of Middle Earth, handmade copies of Susan Cooper's six signs from the Dark is Rising, a Malleus Maleficarum, a first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone annotated and illustrated by JK Rowling, a handmade Alethiometer (one of the most stupidly beautiful things I have ever seen), scrolls on alchemy, medieval beastiaries, drafts of the Chronicals of Narnia and original paintings by Tolkien.

It. Was. Glorious.

We also went to the Radcliffe Camera (at my insistance, and because of the Unwritten), the Ashmolean (at my insistance, because of the Culture Show), the Divinity School (at mum's insitence, because of the ceilling), Oxfam (mutual consent, it started in Oxford and we all shop there regularly, as well as me and mum being volunteers there), Blackwells (ditto, minus the volunteering) and the Eagle and Child (my insistence again, as it was the hangout of Tolkien and Lewis and they'd sit around and talk about fantasy writing and oh my, nerdgasm).

Here's me outside the Eagle and child )

A couple of Superman stories written by my friend Jenna, which came about during a game of Articulate! where a mutual friend mispronounced Lois Lane and me and Jenna suddenly perked up, looked at each other and high fived all in the space of about 5 seconds. And then we checked online. You know, I couldn't find any Louis Lane stories online anywhere, which I thought was amazing given that Superman is 75 years old and Lois and Louis sound so similar. But there you go.

Personally, I think the second one is about the best thing Jenna has ever written. ALSO this is about as Superman as Clint Barton being an opera singer. These are also beta'd by me and a complete and utter fabrication.

I apologise to anyone who doesn't give a shit about fanfiction or the Avengers. I know that, for some reason, there seems to have been a lot of it on my journal lately. I'm not going to stop obviously - it's my journal - but liklihood is, this is it for a while. :)

Beta: The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] shenshen77, who has been wonderful once again.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] dictator_duck’s hometown challenge. I was never going to try writing about my uni town of London, because that’s boring. So I tried York, where I live now, but that totally didn’t work for me. So you’re getting the tiny village of Slaidburn in Lancashire where I grew up. Everything written here about it is true, down to Isobel at the pub. Oh and if you want to see it, type BB7 3ER into Google Maps. Yes, it really is that small. The title comes from a song by James.

Summary: They passed a sign in front of the small church informing them that they were entering Slaidburn, and it became very apparent that this was one of those small British villages that, in your old age, you would talk fondly of growing up in.

PS: if anyone knows where the quote at the beginning comes from, I’d be eternally grateful. I’ve been looking and I can’t find anything. I’m starting to think someone just made it up.

Summary: Natasha Romanov’s life was saved by a man who had once been a hawk, though she did not know this at the time.

Also, I have crossposted this to [livejournal.com profile] avengers_2k, but if anyone knows somewhere else it can get crossposted to, please let me know! I only know of Clint&Nat comms. :P

Notes: My friend Jenna wanted me to sign up for NaNoWriMo with her. I laughed and said no and then wrote this for no apparent reason. Seriously, I’m as surprised as the next person. Additional notes at the end.

Title from Heard it Through the Grapevine and is weirdly better out of context than in.

Summary: Outside POV, Stanford era: In her first year of college a rumour went around about a guy on the floor above her who'd turned up with only two bags, a laptop and the clothes on his back. Which is, y’know, odd, but whatever.


part one || part two || on ao3

Notes: I’m a Brit. I’ve never been to Stanford, or even America for that matter. I know nothing about the American university system. I know nothing about what courses you can take or when the holidays are. I had to look up when Thanksgiving was. I had to keep reminding myself that it’s “apartment” not “flat” and “movie” not “film”. I keep forgetting you can’t drink before 21 (sucks to be you).

Basically, this could be horribly inaccurate, in which case, let me know! [livejournal.com profile] hells_half_acre, the wonderful person that she is, Ameri-picked it for me. However, she is Canadian, so it’s not fool proof.

OH and if anyone was wondering, Amy’s Halloween costume was based on a mix between this character and this character, both created by gingerhaze on tumblr. One day I too shall dress like this for Halloween, and everything will be shiny.
