The Avengers, 3 recs, Bobbi Morse/Clint Barton

Hello! I'm December's special reccer, and I thought I'd kick off my month of recs with a new favorite...

Hawkeye and Mockingbird may not have appeared onscreen together (yet), but they're married in the comics (albeit later divorced, because no one can stay happy forever in comics), and where there's a ship, there's fic!

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Bobbi Morse/Clint Barton
Fic Title: Dates We Don't Mark
Author: revenant_oozi
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/series/19236
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Word Count/WIP?: 3,085, individual stories are complete but series is ongoing
Recced By: stars-inthe-sky

Why This Must Be Read: Sad and exuberant by turns, this short series is a mature look at some key moments in a marriage. Watching the pair take care of each other like this is so, so rewarding—even when everything's not okay, Clint and Bobbi figure out how to be.

Special Rec: 1/20

Why This Must Be Read: Despite the rather impressive array of terrible foods Bobbi purportedly likes in this little story, you'll be charmed by the sweetness and intimacy that the author creates with that frame. Clint is wonderfully characterized here, and I just want to keep smushing their beautiful birdy faces together.

Special Rec: 2/20

Why This Must Be Read: Hawky and Mocky have a bit of a kink; naturally, it kind of involves food. Also quite a bit of quasi-public sex and, just, YUM. I love how they know just which strings to pull with each other, and the loving-but-also-hot results.
