Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Clint Barton (Black Widow/Hawkeye)
Fic Title: we were emergencies
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit for smut & taking a good, hard look at what is effectively mind-rape. Oh, & spoilers for the movie. ;)
Why This Must Be Read: The summary reads, "It's not about being unmade; it's about remaking, one aching step at a time." I couldn't have put it better, and I can't begin to describe the beauty of this fic. It takes the line, "You and I remember Budapest very differently," and runs with it. Basic premise? Clint thinks he and Natasha are violently in love, and that Loki has messed with Natasha's memories. Natasha thinks love is for children, and that Loki has messed with Clint's memories. We don't know who's right. This fic has humor, angst, drama, romance, suspense, and an absolutely beautiful look at the way the minds of two very dangerous, battle-scarred people work, and the way that their equally dangerous, battle-scarred hearts might work together.
