Hello, bar! This was one of our favorite ATTFs from last year, so it's my pleasure to bring you the second annual All the Things Fall Free-for-All. (Apologies to the Southern Hemisphere.)


Thanks to frea_o for letting me use her banner from last year.

I don't know about the rest of you, but this is the time of year when the weather starts getting cold and I start wanting to write ridiculously fluffy fic about sharing body heat. ;) So today we are celebrating all things fall, and all things our favorite assassins might do in this season. Does Clint have a penchant for terrible made-for-TV horror movies? Does Natasha love pumpkin spice chai? Have they ever been on an assignment that got complicated bu Halloween? I want to see your head canons, comment fics, and discussion! Also feel free to just hang out and chat while you enjoy some hopefully-glorious weather!

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.)

Oh dear. It has been a while, hasn't it? My apologies.

Let us move forward, because there is much to talk about! The first being Clint's cameo in Black Widow #10. Did it give you sufficient feels? I certainly had the feels. Following that issue, we had a fun team up between Natasha and Wolverine's protege, X-23.

The past two months also gave us another Kate-centric issue of Hawkeye, and the first two issues of Hawkeye vs. Deadpool, which surprisingly I enjoyed, given my usual indifference to Deadpool. It's nice to see another comic acknowledge Clint's deafness.

The past weekend also gave us much news thanks to New York Comic-Con! The first being that while Matt Fraction and David Aja's run on Hawkeye is sadly coming to a close, there will be a new Hawkeye book featuring a new creative team next March. I'm not familiar with the new team's previous work, but people who are seem to be excited, so this is good news!

The Women of Marvel panel also provided exciting news for our favourite Marvel lady. There's going to be a Black Widow young adult novel written by Margaret Stohl. No movie announcements, but this is still interesting, right? The Women of Marvel panel also saw the announcement of a Gamora ongoing comic written by Nicole Perlman (the initial scriptwriter for Guardians of the Galaxy) and the announcement that G. Willow Wilson will take over writing duties for the all-female X-Men team. G. Willow Wilson is already doing a fabulous job on Ms Marvel, so this is great news.

And to finish off this post, Phil Noto, aka the amazing artist for Black Widow, announced that Marvel has commissioned a series of variant covers from him next year. It's great to see Noto's talent appreciated. He gave us a sneak preview of his variant covers, including one for Black Widow. And what a cover it is.

Yes, Natasha is wearing Clint's shirt.

Bear in mind that this is a variant cover (ie. not the offical cover), so the cover doesn't necessarily have any bearing on the comic's contents. But still, I expect appropriate squeeing to commence.

*facepalm* This is late because I suck.

So, on today's belated All The Things Friday, we're talking about public perceptions of Clint and Natasha in-universe. Did news stations speculate about their identities after New York? Did public attitudes towards them change after SHIELD collapsed? Do they have outrageously false rumours spread about them on gossip websites? Does RPF (Real Person Fic) of them exist? How do Clint and Natasha feel about all of this?

Share your thoughts, and you're more than welcome to write news articles and the most hilarious gossip headlines you can imagine. Be creative and have fun!

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.

expectant
rating: g
characters: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Tony Stark
warnings: none
summary: Liho is having kittens, and Natasha's not taking it as calmly as Clint would have expected.

author's note: For crazy4orcas, who prompted the above. :)

"Natasha." He picks up her hand, running his thumb over knuckles that are white with anxiety, locked with nerves.

Title: Dance for Your Life, chapter 2
Author: jacedesbff
Word Count: 10,620
Warnings: None
Summary: Clint and Natasha are partnered on So You Think You Can Dance

More than an actual chapter two, this is the complete story of Clint and Natasha as contestants on So You Think You Can Dance. The original chapter one ficlet was absorbed into the larger story (which grew into a much larger story than anticipated - in a good way, I hope!) :-)

Here on AO3.
