an important post-Age Of Ultron message from your mods

Hello and welcome to be_compromised!

Here’s a little tour of what we like to call ‘our bar’ (as in this is the best bar and lots of bar jokes) and the good yacht (other pairings have ships, we have a yacht!) Clint/Natasha.

tour behind the cut: about us, things that happen around here, and some links relevant to your interestsCollapse )

Welcome to the dedicated space for all Captain America: Civil War discussion! Bring your squee, meta, pics, all the things! Please note: UNTIL OTHERWISE STATED (AFTER THE MOVIE HAS BEEN RELEASED WORLDWIDE) THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE WHERE CIVIL WAR CAN BE DISCUSSED ON BE_COMPROMISED.

A few rules:

1) Please mark whether or not your comment has spoilers to try and help anyone who is trying to remain spoiler free to avoid that thread.

2) Do understand though that there will be a LOT spoilers in the comments to this post and there may be no way to avoid them. If you are absolutely against being spoiled then please avoid this post until you've seen the film. It's okay, this post is going to be active for quite some time, you won't be missing out!

3) Remember that message from your Mods post Age of Ultron? Character bashing and ship wars are assassinable offences. We love differences in opinion and discussing all the things, but we also want to keep this bar a positive fandom space. If you think someone might be hurt by something you're about to say then either don't say it or find a better way of putting it. Please keep in mind that we are about the love.

4) Yes, even though the film we are discussing is Civil War where everyone wants to beat up everyone else. Shush. Play nice.

Today's challenge is a drabble challenge. I'm a purist who can't resist drabbles which are exactly 100 words long, but realize that there are lots of people out there who aren't, so any super short ficlet of 300 or less words would work here. (But you get bonus pionts if you DO keep your drabbles to exactly 100 words! And my unending admiration, which, not gonna lie, you probably already have. :))

How can you participate?
Leave a prompt! Write a drabble from a prompt! Or, to make it even more interesting, use the last line of someone else's drabble as the first line of yours! It doesn't need to be a continuation - although it could be - but merely an interesting new prompt/starting point. (This is shamelessly stolen from Giles-Shorts.)

Also, stealing rules from previous posts --
1) The usual community rules apply and the usual community theme - which is that we love all things Natasha and Clint, with each other, other people, threesomes, in gen fic,
2) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
3) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

title: nor need we power or splendor
author: kuhori_rei / shellybelle
rating: M
warnings: varies by chapter, but include[[cut for potential triggers]]polyamory, mixing of MCU and comic canon, canon-typical violence, character backstory including histories of child abuse, sexual violence, reproductive violence, sex work, and canon-typical violence

pairings: Clint Barton/Laura Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton/Laura Barton, Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Laura Barton/Natasha Romanoff
word count: 240,000

She hadn’t been sure, at the time, what had finally driven her away from the training center, brought her to book a flight to Waterloo and rent a car for the drive out out to the farm. But when she had packed a bag and headed to the nearest airport, it hadn’t been her apartment in New York or her condo in DC or her London townhouse or any number of hidden bolt-holes she kept around the world that she’d flown to, but a creaking, busy farmhouse in Iowa. (Or: It's been a long journey to get to where they are, and it'll be an even longer journey home.)

Complete on AO3.

title: til the clocks run down
author: findthesea / andibeth82
rating: M
warnings: various mild warnings, see each chapter for specifics
pairings: Clint Barton/Laura Barton/Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton/Laura Barton, Laura Barton/Natasha Romanoff
word count: 250,000

"I think I do love her."

The words don’t shock her -- not really, not when she lets herself think about it. She does believe that Clint hadn't been sure about how deep his feelings for Natasha went the first time he admitted his attraction to her. But Laura would have been a fool to believe there wasn’t something more developing, especially after being around them in the few times they’d visited together since Clint’s confession. It had been easy to tell how their partnership was becoming comfortable, a relationship as worn and cozy as the one Laura’s built for herself with the man she’s loved for almost eight years.

Welcome to be-compromised's first eve graphics friday! (Well, at least I think it's be-compromised's first ever graphics friday.) I wrote graphics weekend in the banner because we can party all weekend. Everyone is invited to join - even if you have no experience with graphics!

This Friday, I present you with a challenge: create a graphic with Clint and Natasha! But wait - there's a catch. I will be providing the cut-out of Clint and Natasha, because I think you guys will find it better and easier if they are already cut out for you. Besides that, go wild - put flower crowns over their heads, use funky fonts, experiment with all sorts of textures - do whatever! Everything else is below the cut.

Have fun, everyone! If you have any questions, pm me/leave a comment!

This is a little off-topic but I thought that this would be a really interesting topic to discuss. So, members of this great bar, do you think that Marvel should also follow in Deadpool's footsteps and start to make R movies?

I personally loved Deadpool and had a great time watching the movie but some people who brought their young children to the movies were angry that it had a lot of bad words and stuff.  Obviously, because it was R, that was to be expected but should superhero movies even be R when a good majority of the fanbase is younger than 17?

Also, feel free to talk about other MCU movies and think of this as a general movie discussion!

Things to remember:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

Happy Monday! Have some smut to start out your week! ;)

Working Out the Kinks

Fandom/Characters: Avengers, Steve/Clint/Natasha
Rating/Warnings: NC17 - Foul language, explicit sex, definitely NSFW
Summary: They've been 'comforting' Steve for a while now, and Clint and Natasha decide it's time to kick their relationship up a notch. After they have a little heart to heart on preferences.
