This was supposed to be something completely different, but turned into this instead because I couldn't be bothered to make the original idea work.

[ 1400 words | non-beta'd | G | no warnings but see disclaimer ]

Disclaimer: this is not meant as speculation on AoU, this is not me 'retconning' for any sort of purpose, I'm not trying to fix anything I've read about or heard speculated. This is simply an idea I had regarding Clint and his apparent propensity for picking up strays with no motive other than to give them a chance. This has potential-AoU references in it, but is not me trying to fix anything. I don't think it's not going up on AO3 though.

Title: Snowblindness
Rating: PG13

Wordcount: 4572
Warnings: injury
Disclaimer: lies and untruths
Beta: [ profile] inkvoices. Thank you again!
Notes: written for [ profile] alphaflyer as part of [ profile] igrockspock's winter fic exchange. Essentially amounts to Melinda, Maria and Natasha in Austria saving Clint's arse. Go team!

They were in the Central Alps in Austria, in December at night fall, because if Clint Barton was going to be compromised, he was going to do it properly. And apparently that meant doing so in stupidly inaccessible places in the snow.

Rating: PG-13

Warnings: implied/referenced suicide
Beta: [ profile] alphaflyer
Notes: I wrote this because I was reading the graphic novel Climate Changed by Phillipe Squarzoni and even though I studied climate science as part of my degree and already knew most of what I was reading, it was still making me really angry. Tony got into clean energy after shutting down Stark Industries' weapons manufacturing, so I figured he must have been pissed about it too.

Notes: Bucky on the streets of Brooklyn; Hawkguy fusion, outside POV. Written for [ profile] sholio as part of [ profile] avengersfest 2014. Totally went out of my comfort zone writing Bucky and I'm super glad I did.

Unless you don’t got nowhere else to go, you don’t come down Blake Street way. It’s cold and there’s no shelter, ‘cept for what condemned lots provide. Got worse after the aliens though. One of them sled thingies crashed straight through the front of 37. Don’t matter all that much, ‘cos no one ‘cept homeless have lived there for years, but weird rotting alien bodies and that sled thing brought Feds and Blake Street ain’t the place anyone wants Feds. Full of people just making do, ‘cept Feds think that’s illegal. Fuckin’ Feds.

062. Two Stories

I have returned from Ireland! It was nice. I had 13 hours sleep one night and saw the ugliest baby Jesus I've ever seen. I also wrote a story, long-hand, in two small notebooks (yes I completely filled a notebook). I like it but it's very... British. So I'm not sure it's going to be all that popular. But then again, that shouldn't matter really, should it? it's the first time I've tried Peggy POV and the first time I've written a relationship that isn't Clint/Natasha. It could be crap. We'll see.

Anyway, two fics written for the [ profile] be_compromised Promptathon.

Title: Be Humankind

Notes: Written for [ profile] inkvoices prompt: put Clint and Natasha in your place of work. My place of work is boring as shit, so I chose my voluntary job instead, which I love.

“OK, I know I haven’t worked with you lot for over a year but,” Peggy waves her hand to indicate Natasha in town and Clint in the back, “am I missing something?”

Notes: Written for [ profile] hufflepuffsneak's prompt: Natasha reads Clint's will or vice versa. This is the vice versa

“I am sorry for your loss, Mr Barton.”

Clint snorts. “Do you even know who I’ve lost?”

Notes: Written for the [ profile] be_compromised Promptathon of Magic and Joy 2014 for my own prompt: Gladiator AU. Where they're both gladiators. Title from Setting Sun by Howling Bells.

Instead the fat man gives her a sword – indirectly, because he is stupid but he is not stupid – and when she has killed those within immediate reach he smiles. And though they do not share a language, his meaning is clear.

Fight for me, little girl.

Remixing: The Nature of Dust by [ profile] inkvoices
Author's Note: Pinch hit for the [ profile] be_compromised Remix Exchange 2014. I was really angry about climate change when I wrote this, which is fitting as it's a gift for a fellow geographer, and I am possibly more proud of this story than I am of anything I have ever written before.

056. Punch Everything

This is the closest thing I have to a finished cosplay and I love it. Obviously, I need the right tshirt (surprisingly difficult to find), the right accesories and to finish the jacket (since these photos were taken, I have a tacked blue stripe down one sleeve and a pinned blue stripe down the other. Sleeves are hard.) And then small things, like dying my boot leather and stuff.

Cut for photos )

Also, when I went out to show dad (because I am a child :P) he said, 'oh I know what your legs remind me of!' and then showed me a pale grey slug in the compost heap. Nice, dad. :P

Notes: As a (currently displaced) Londoner, this scene is both hilarious and wrong (see comments). So I fixed it.

“This is a service update from the control room at King’s Cross Station. The Jubilee Line is part suspended between Canada Water and Stratford, and the Docklands Light Railway between Limehouse, All Saints, Canning Town and South Quay due to…Unexpected occurrences... in the Greenwich area.

Yeah, so I stopped procrastinating posting this.

Title: Spare Me Over Another Year
Fandom: The Avengers
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Clint/Natasha, Clint/Bobbi
Wordcount: 9324
Warnings: Character deaths (see notes), canon and world typical violence
Disclaimer: Watch me as I write fiction about fiction. All recognisable characters are property of Marvel and Disney.
Beta: The wonderful [ profile] shenshen77, who has been ridiculously helpful once again. Also thanks to [ profile] alphaflyer and [ profile] inkvoices, who are great to bounce ideas off.
Notes: This started out as a sort of American Gods/The Book Thief/Avengers fusion, with a bit of Sandman thrown in. But then it turned into something else, though those elements can still be seen if you look hard enough. Death in this is similar to death as seen in Sandman/American Gods. So they die, but they don’t die.

Inspired by a prompt from [ profile] _samalander which I saw in the [ profile] be_compromised Secret Santa 2013; in her time as a reaper, Natasha has collected a lot of souls. She's never fallen in love with one before. For [ profile] _samalander (obviously) but also [ profile] inkvoices, who’s wanted an American Gods fusion ever since my prompt at the 2012 Summer Promptathon, and also my friend Jenna, to whom I gave this story as a (late) Christmas present.

Title from O Death as sung by Jen Titus. Lyric from Wake Up by Arcade Fire.

When the reaper

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.

Title: Mirror (Put Your Sweet Fingers)

Warnings: Angst, genderswap (guy!Lois), sexual references, mentions of: PTSD, survivors guilt, minor character death
