Hello best bar! I hope the New Year is treating everyone well -- I can't believe it's February already!

I'm hoping you can help me find a fic I've been looking for for the past few days. It's Clint/Natasha and I'm pretty sure I read it over on fanfiction.net. It's a post-Avengers fic and deals with Natasha not being able to sleep well or at all unless it's with Clint -- platonic at first. I can only recall a couple of scenes -- one where they meet up for a few days between missions and spend the whole time in bed, or rather a mattress on the floor because of the window sight-lines in the cabin where they're staying. They even make a game out of getting various things from around the the cabin without actually getting off the mattress. The other scene is at the end and they're racing back to their hotel from a run and I think Natasha beats Clint back to the room.

Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!

TITLE: Right Between the Eyes
PAIRING: (gen) Natasha Romanoff & Peggy Carter, Peggy Carter & Dottie Underwood, Clint Barton & Natasha Romanoff
WARNINGS: Graphic depictions of violence
SUMMARY: When Dottie Underwood suddenly appears in the twenty-first century, Peggy turns to the best contact she has: S.H.I.E.L.D.'s very own Black Widow.

Yes, it's that time of year again. Birds are singing and love is in the air.

Sounds like we need our annual Valentine's Day Mini Prompathon, doesn't it? Without further ado...

Now (Tuesday, February 2nd - February 8th 12 midnight eastern: Prompt! Prompt ALL THE THINGS!
February 9th - February 17th (midnight eastern): Fill those prompts like you've never filled prompts before!

Prompts: All things Valentine's Day or love (romantic or otherwise!) related. Friendship? UST? Developing romantic feelings? Badass mission that just so happens to involve obnoxious heart-shaped candies? Excessive consumption of pink cupcakes? Living down by that rivier in Egypt or AoU-compliant? Alternate universes featuring singing elephants dressed as cupids? All are welcome here!

Prompts go in the comments to this post. List each prompt as its own separate comment.

Fills: Post your fill, or a link to your fill - be it fic, art, a video of you preforming an interpretive dance, etc - as a reply to the prompt comment. Please don't post your fanwork separately to the comm, otherwise b_c might explode from the squee. We'll also create a masterlist post updated as fills come in, so rest assured that everyone will see your work!

Please include title, rating, and appropriate warnings in the subject line of your fill.

Prompts may have multiple fills, please give love to your fellow creators!

Okay, best bar! Go wild and share the love!

Title: every city was a gift
Pairings: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: approx. 6,400
Summary: SHIELD’s greatest urban legend is that when Natasha Romanoff later declares, “Agent Barton was sent to kill me; he made a different call”, she means that on that day, he chose to spare her, chose to bring her in instead. But what actually happens is something much stranger and much wilder, something that ends up spanning several years and countless cities and, here and there, a drink or a meal or a quiet smile exchanged on the rooftop of a building in Brooklyn.
He lets her go.
This is what follows.
Warnings: n/a

( Clint puts it off for as long as he can, because it feels like it’s crossing a line, somehow, even though they have no relationship to speak of, even though no lines have been drawn to cross. )

Since I came out of the fandom closet on the getting to know you post, I thought maybe I'd post some fic links here too. (And why this is making me so nervous, I don't know, but I'm hitting post before I lose my nerve.)

Title: Wrapped in Flannel
Rating: Hard R
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha
Warnings: Vaguely post-Winter Soldier, not AoU compliant
Word Count: 1444
Summary: He's looking at her with mild concern, and she realizes that while she's been wrapped up in lustful thoughts yet again, he's been talking.

Title: Minutes, Hours
Rating: PG
Pairing/Characters: Team, Clint/Natasha
Warnings: Hurt/Comfort
Word Count: 892
Summary: It's been two minutes since the first explosion rocked the building, since the comms went out then fizzled unevenly back to life, since she and the rest of the team lost all visuals on him.

Title: Spies (and Agents) Like Us
Rating: PG
Pairing/Characters: Natasha & Bobbi friendship, hints of Clint/Natasha, Bobbi/Hunter, & past Clint/Bobbi
Warnings: Big spoilers for season 2 of Agents of SHIELD, hints of stuff from AoS, MCU, comics & fanon
Word Count: 835
Summary: "So I can either use my tricks on you, or you can just tell me honestly, because I refuse to lie to him. How are you, really?"
Title: Every Night A Hopeless Lie
Rating: NC-17
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha
Warnings/Kinks: Consensual Kink, Exhibitionism, Public Nudity, Older Woman/Younger Man, Experimental Kink
Word Count: 4994
Summary: He never even tried to resist, and now he's reveling in his love for her, enjoying an illusion that can’t ever become truth. Natasha can faintly remember what that feels like; the memory stings, like a needle lodged just beneath her skin, and it makes her want to be a little cruel, to see how far she can push him, to see when they'll finally reach the point at which he will tell her no more.

Author: alphaflyer
Title: By the Book
Characters: Clint Barton, Kate Bishop, Natasha Romanoff, Tony Stark, Lucky the Pizza Dog, Jessica Dawson (Background), Bobbi Morse (Background)
Relationships: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton & Kate Bishop
Length: app 8,400 words 
Summary: Clint Barton's love life isn't just a car crash, it's a multi-vehicle pile-up. Kate decides to lend a hand.

Author's Note: This story was initially written for a Hawkeye Bang, from which I had to withdraw when I got sucked into an RL vortex. The piece draws most of its inspiration from the Matt Fraction Hawkeye run (without being slavishly canon compliant), with a dash of Avengers Assemble #5 and a hint at events from the MCU. A mash-up, really, but that’s what fanfic is for, right?

Thanks to my beloved beta, jrbarton. I added a few bits after she was done, so any glitches are mine. A belated birthday present for geckoholic.

Hi All, Happy New Year 2016! We've already got some fun things planned for this year and we thought we'd kick things off with a getting-to-know-you, getting-back-in-touch, friending type thing. It was lovely to see newer faces joining in with things like Secret Santa, and the older faces popping in that we haven't seen for a while, and, well, we do love a good old friendly bar chat in these parts. So grab yourselves a drink, copy and paste the box below into a comment to tell us a bit about yourselves, and chat away!

Other fun Friends style Avengers vids: one two three

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.)
