Warnings: nonspecific implications of child abuse/violence, AU, alternate backstory for Natasha
Author’s Notes: This is the first thing I've posted to this community so if I did it wrong, please let me know. Clint and Natasha are both underage at the beginning of this story but the closest it gets to romance is someone gets a lollipop, so I think it should be OK.
Summary: Clint doesn't make promises very often. But he keeps them. Even to little red-headed girls he doesn't know.

Read it HERE ON LJ or HERE ON AO3 (my other Avengers stuff is on AO3 as well)

So with MCU set in the real world, just expanded a little bit, and our favorite actor and actress doing plenty of other movies that inspire folks to want to imagine them as covers for Clint and Natasha, this is a pairing that frequently makes me poke around the crossover/fusion side of fics.

Honestly, it takes a lot to sell me on most of the actor fusions I've seen, primarily because Jeremy Renner is such a good actor that a lot of the characters that could be Clint Barton undercover just don't strike me as remotely similar. The ones where they make his other characters his backstory are usually worse. But for all that, I love an actor fusion that actually sells me on it, and I even occasional take a twin-fic for guilty pleasure.

Crossovers are even more fun. Seeing Clint and Natasha in the Firefly universe or the Leverage universe, as I have poking around this comm and fic exchanges, is almost always a ball, just to see how they'll translate or the author will mix things up this time.

Do you write crossovers with them? Fusions? Have a great idea for one you haven't written yet? I was totally going to fuse Avengers/Bourne Legacy and make Marta part of Bobbi's backstory before she hit Agents of SHIELD. (I admit, I haven't entirely written off the idea yet.) I'm also knee-deep in a Leverage/Avengers crossover 'verse where Parker was Red Room.

Do you like to read them even if you don't like them? What's your favorite crossover or fusion? What story do you wish someone would write?

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.)

Hey best bar!

Does anybody know where this photo of Jeremy Renner came from? I've discovered how addictive Polyvore can be and would like to work this photo into a set, but need to upload the photo from a source site?
