Five Avengers Recs, Natasha/Clint

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Clint Barton (Black Widow/Hawkeye)
Fic Title: we were emergencies
Author: gyzym
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/405828  
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit for smut & taking a good, hard look at what is effectively mind-rape. Oh, & spoilers for the movie. ;) 
Genre: Post-movie
WIP?: No. 

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.

the avengers natasha/clint (pre-movie)

Fandom Category: the avengers
Pairing: natasha romanoff/clint barton (black widow/hawkeye)
Fic Title: a girl is a gun
Author: miawkitten
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): not rated but there's violence, so.
Genre: super sexy spy shenanigans. is that a genre? pre-movie/book compliant
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: because all the other ones i was going to rec have already been rec'd. this is how clint recruited natasha. it's more of a character piece for natalia but it really showcases how this relationship works due to their lone wolf natures. it's a slow courting process with missions in tokyo, sao paulo (YES, BOOK COMPLIANT! score one for the comic book fangirls.) oh, and BUDAPEST. it sets the base from which you can project how their partnership functions. and did i mention super sexy spy sheninigans?
