title: but the silence spoke volumes
word count: 12,785
pairing: clint barton & natasha romanov, clint barton/laura barton
rating: teen & up

Obviously, spoilers for AoU, but essentially this is my attempt to, uh, put my OT3 feelings into words. Okay, it's technically not OT3 because there's no intimacy or anything like that and Laura and Clint are very much married and Clint and Nat are VERY much BFF but basically this is me trying to explore the relationship between the three in a way that I felt made sense? And of course it got way too long. I have no idea what the audience is for this right now, if people even want to READ Clint/Nat stuff with Clint/Laura, but I'm glad I got it done.

Laura trusted Natasha enough to know she could put her husband back together in ways that she couldn't, and Natasha trusted Laura enough to know that if she had to leave Clint for weeks on end, he would be taken care of in a way no one else would bother to understand.

Sorry this letter is late! But hi, and thank you for writing fic for me! I'm pretty easy going in both my requests and my preferences, so hopefully you'll have a fun time making fun AU adventures for some of my favorite couples and characters. Because the kind of situations are already in the assignment you got, I won't go into specifics. But I will give you a bit of info on each ship, and my likes and dislikes to help you out. :)

Generally, in addition to the obvious AU stuff, I like slice of life things, banter, dystopia, snark, developing relationships, angst. MCU-type crossovers from other characters are also fun, too. I'm also into porn, BDSM and all that good stuff -- it's not essential for a story or anything, but if you choose to go there, that's fine as long as it works. I'm not squicky about most things. Big general turn-offs (of which there really aren't a lot) are mpreg and slash. But that shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Clint Barton/Bobbi Morse
I love these two together, despite the fact I am a big Clint/Nat shipper, I ship Clint and Bobbi just as much. I can take them romantically, or as past partners, or as just really close friends -- whatever route you decide to go based on the story you write is fine. There's just something about their relationship I truly love.

Natasha Romanoff/Clint Barton
My ultimate. My OTP. My "babies." After seeing AoU, I've recently realized how much I adore the fact that they're absolutely yin-yang best friends who would die for each other, so...there's that. But also, obviously, I'm very into them romantically. This is probably the easiest pairing you can write for me, because I'll love anything since I adore these two together.

Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers
I'm legitimately fascinated by this pairing, which I don't think gets written about enough. I love how Steve and Darcy compliment each other, especially with Steve's snark and Darcy's personality and the fact that they can kind of draw each other out of their shells. I'm okay if you decide to make them romantically involved, but I also love them as friends, too.

Because why not, right? Anyway, this is just a dumping ground for things I've written in the past 2 weeks, and I'm betting most of my FL has already seen them either here or on Tumblr, but I figured I'd post them anyway. Especially because two of them I can't post in my usual communities since they're not technically Avengers/assassin based. One is a fairly long huge post WS piece that I wanted to get up before Ultron jossed everything, one is an exchange piece for beyondpanels that I wrote for paperclipbitch that finally was revealed earlier this week, and one is the piece I just posted yesterday about Clint and Matt being dumpster bros because apparently, that is a thing that happened that I couldn't get out of my head. (And I love it.)


MCU

title:
we come alive or come undone
rating: E
word count: 25K
warnings: consenual kink, graphic depictions of violence, and mentions of ptsd, sleepwalking, nightmares & alcohol abuse
characters: clint barton/natasha romanoff, natasha romanoff/steve rogers, clint barton/bobbi morse, sam wilson

After the nightmares, after the monsters, after the secrets, the following things happen: Natasha and Steve put together Ikea furniture, read old letters from the war, and play Trivial Pursuit. Clint and Bobbi reconnect about their past. And Sam Wilson comes over to play video games.

Sometimes, the answer to being put back together is learning how to be unmade apart.

(OR: the one where team Winter Soldier is supposed to be off doing important “save the world” type things, but everyone gets sidetracked by life instead.)



YOUNG AVENGERS

title:
another name goes up in lights (like dimaonds in the sky)
rating: G
word count: 2617
characters: america chavez/kate bishop, teddy altman/billy kaplan, cassie lang, clint barton

(Later, over beers on the fire escape, Cassie will grill Kate six ways to Sunday about how she had turned just the slightest bit of red when America nonchalantly admitted she was up for wearing skimpy clothing and throwing a ball around on the sand.)


DAREDEVIL/HAWKGUY

title:
let's do everything before we die
rating: G
word count: 2382
characters: clint barton, matt murdock

“Who’re you?”

“The guy who pulled you out of a dumpster. My dumpster, to be exact.” Clint rubs at his ear unconsciously and the man furrows his brow in a way that looks like it hurts.

“I thought that was a woman.”

Hi, hello, hi! I'm so happy you'll be writing fic for me! I can tell you honestly that I'll love whatever you choose to write about from my requests, as all are fandoms and characters that I love that definitely do not have enough fic dedicated to them. So, take that to heart. :)

I'm pretty easygoing in terms of what I like and want. Generally, I'm good with banter, slice of life things, AUs, dystopia, snark, developing relationships, angst, action/team stuff, mission fic. I'm also into porn, BDSM and all that good stuff -- it's not essential for a story or anything, but if you choose to go there, that's fine as long as it works.

Big general turn-offs (of which there really aren't a lot) are mpreg and slash. But that shouldn't be too much of an issue.

REQUESTED FANDOMS:

Mission Impossible
William Brandt, Jane Carter

Basically, I adore William Brandt. I love him. I love his character and there's never enough fic just exploring him, his mindset, his past life. Any kind of flashback/slice of life type thing would be great, especially his relationship with Jane and how it might affect where the team is at the end of MI4. But honestly? I'd TOTALLY be into some kind of AU, especially if it's mission-based. Hell, maybe Brandt and Carter had a fling. WHO KNOWS. ;)

Secret Avengers
Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton, Jessica Drew

These are literally the biggest failboats to ever hit comics so of course I want all the stories about them. I am OBSESSED with Jessica's BFF relationship with Natasha, and also her relationship with Clint, and Natasha's relationship to Clint. And of course, the trio's relationship to each other. AU, slice of life, THREESOME? Just the three of them on a mission being adorable and kick-ass? Or making Clint feel bad because they're amazing? I just love their friendship. And if you wanna throw in cameos from other Secret Avengers (ahem MARIA HILL), that's totally fine.


Agent Carter

Pretty much anything goes here. For reference: I love Peggy/Angie, I love Dottie and her backstory. I love Sousa and Peggy and I love the boys, even if the boys kind of piss me off sometimes. I LOVE Peggy and Jarvis' relationship. I am a fan of Peggy and Howard, so don't let that stop you from anything. I'd LOVE to see some kind of behind the scenes moment from the show, or a moment that we never got to see (be creative!) If it works to have people romatically involved that's amazing, if not, I'm fine with gen or UST. Really. Use as many or as few poeple as you want. (But please do include at least Peggy and Angie in some way.)

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
Hansel, Gretel

So one of my favorite things for these two is their bond. No, I'm not one of those people who don't like the incest implication -- HAVE YOU SEEN THIS FILM? You can go that way if you want (I love angst and terrible things, so, you know, use that to your advantage.) But if you just want to make them sibling BFFs, that's ok too. Mission-type fic, slice of life, pre-movie, post-movie are all good with me. As long as you explore something that kind of...makes them human? Digs into their lives and relationship a little bit? I'll be totally happy.

Thank you, fic writer!

Song: I Could've Been Your Girl
Artist: She & Him
Fandom: Her
Download: here
Streaming: embedded



Made for nicole_anell for Festivids 2014.

Summary: If I could do it over, I'd send you the pillow that I'd cry on.

Notes: I have literally been in love with this film from the first time I walked out of the theater. I know it's a strange film to have an obsession with -- a lot of people seem to have trouble understanding why I adore it, or why it's become one of my favorite movies. All my Scarlett Johansson love aside (and believe me, there's a lot of it), this was a movie that reached into my heart and grabbed me both emotionally and in a very personal way. It's a beautiful story that encompasses everything about love -- its messiness and its happinesss and its ups and downs. I also maintained from the first time I saw it that the cinematography would make it perfect for vidding.

Although my giftee requested something that I thought was an amazing idea -- vidding from Samantha's POV -- it was just something that was too daunting for me to work with once I had settled on a song choice...so that ended up unfortuantely not happening, as much as I was intrigued by it. But abandoning that idea did give me a chance to figure out how to focus on Theodore and his relationships, the wins and the losses and sometimes hard and compromising decisions that come with trying to figure out your place in someone's life. In the end, the vid came together in a way that I didn't intend it to, but I think it works, and I'm pretty happy with it.

Thanks to hollywoodgrrl for encouragement and for insanely helpful beta that no doubt made this ten times better than it probably would have been otherwise.

Hello Beyond Panels writer! I apologize for the lateness of this letter, as well as the fact that I didn't include my preferences easily in the sign-up. But I hope to make this easy for you!

I like a lot of things. Basically, I'm open to mostly anything, but if you're so inclined, you can take a look at my own fics and get a sense of my writing style, preferences, ships, and previous Yuletide stuff by checking out my AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/users/andibeth82. You can also look at my fic tag on Tumblr (isjustprogress.tumblr.com) and my Tumblr in general if you want an idea of what kinds of ships/characters/things I like.

I'm very into characterization - I like details and good dialogue. I love when a fic gets down and dirty into a character's mind and shows me what they're thinking, not just what they're doing. I like a good story. If you're worried that you're being overly detailed or too intense...chances are, you're probably not, so don't fret! This isn't a drabble, so surprise me with your feels for whatever fandom you write about!

Other things: I I really like angst. A lot. I mean, I'm not saying you have to like, kill someone or put someone in danger for me to be happy, but angst and hurt/comfort is like my OT3. Also, I'm pretty open about different kinds of tropes and such, but here be some of my favs: AU, period pieces, STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS, characters with dark pasts who are damaged people but love deeply, daddy issues, POV shifts, forgotten/mistaken identities, female friendship/Bechtel test passing, teamwork, mama bear love, sisters, snark/banter (I love snark!), people saving people, established relationships. Also a fan of smut and kink stuff but that's not really neccessary in a story. (If it works, however, I am ALL for it.)

Dislikes, for the record: mpreg, a/b/o, non-con

REQUESTS:

Hawkeye
Kate Bishop, Barney Barton, Clint Barton, Lucky


I'm extremely enamored with Kate/Clint, they're my most favorite thing. And that's pretty much true no matter the setting. I also ship both ways with them, in that I love them as BFFs/partners but also, I like them as a couple. So basically, it would be easy for me to love anything you write for them, whether it's a fun AU or a slice of life type thing. Clint and Barney...oh man. After reading Hawkeye 21, I AM GUTTED. I'm devesated. I love Clint's relationship with Barney SO much and I would love any kind of fic exploring their relationship. Oh, and I'm totally open to any cameos -- Jess, Bobbi, Natasha -- I'm a big fan of the ladies in Clint's life and their friendships (possibly) with Kate and/or Barney and Clint.

Young Avengers
Kate Bishop, America Chavez, Cassie Lang


GIRL POWER. ALL THE GIRL POWER. America/Kate either as BFFs or lovers, again, I'm open to either and love both pairings. I especially like UST where it relates to America/Kate. But also, I love Cassie and Cassie's relationship to Kate. MAKE ME HAPPY ABOUT LADIES TEAMING UP AND BEING AWESOME OR EVEN JUST HAVING DINER FOOD AFTER SAVING THE WORLD BECAUSE I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH. (And adding in some of the boys are fine, I just want the main focus to be one or all of these lovelies!)

Black Widow
Natasha Romanoff, Bucky Barnes, Liho, Yelena Belova


Natasha Romanoff is my light and love and I adore her with every fiber of my being. Simply put: her life means a lot to me, and any explortation of her past or character exploration would make me happy. I'm fascinated by her relationship/history with Yelena, and wouldn't mind seeing stuff about those two, especially as it relates to their Red Room days. And I love Bucky/Nat as he existed in her past. ALSO I LOVE LIHO. I love Natasha and Liho. I would love a fic of just Natasha and Liho learning to appreciate each other.

Secret Avengers
Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton, Jessica Drew


Can you say OT3? Okay, I don't really want a threesome, but these three TOGETHER in some way kicking ass and taking names or even just hanging out randomly for no reason would make me happy. I love Natasha and Jessica's BFF friendship, Clint and Jess' relationship history, Clint and Natasha's love for each other -- I just want all the fic of the three of them co-existing.

THANK YOU KIND FIC WRITER!

I figured I'd write a short letter, even though I think I listed some things in my sign up. None the less! This is actually less of a letter and more of a basic like/dislike guide for you, if you need it. :)

General likes: BAMFness (shouldn't be a problem in lady fics, but, you know, always like to throw it out there, heh.) Banter/snark, AUs, friendships, competence, mission fic, origin stories, big character exploration. I'm fine with femslash but I'd like my femslash more implied than not, if that makes sense.

I know this is a ladies exchange, but I am shipper at heart and have a soft spot for the males in these ladies' lives where applicable, so I love any mentions/inclusions of that (obviously equality-based.)

Major no's: MPreg, Dub-Con. Otherwise, everything else (really) is pretty much fair game. Go as far and long as you want with rating or violence.

Feel free to look at my own fic/bookmarks if you want to get a sense of what I write/am interested in, though by no means should that give you the ONLY idea of what I like. Have fun! :)

So in the spirit of being charitable, I'm opening my door to trick-or-treating this year...treats can be anything from pics of my favorites (or your favorites if I know you well enough, heh), a favorite photo, a compliment, a ficlet.

Spread the love! (Keeping this unlocked in case anyone comes across it that's not on my FL and wants something.)

IT'S FESTIVID TIME! I'm super excited to be doing some vidding, and I hope you are, too!

I'm really pretty easygoing when it comes to requests and the like. I'm pretty open in terms of music, and I'm also pretty open as far as music goes. I have a decently varied taste, and one of the things I love about vidding is that there's a song for everything - whether it fits the source material, the theme, or whether it's a full-on crack!vid. I trust you to use your judgement, but if you really want an idea of what things I like, you can search my music tag on tumblr (though I don't update it as much as I should.)

Also, imagery/lyrical interpretation makes me the happiest, as do ladies.

REQUESTS!Collapse )

Hello, hi, and yay, it's Yuletide time! I'm really excited to write about some of my favorite fandoms this year, and I hope you are too! I also tend to be pretty easy to please, as I love when people write about Things That I Am Into, so hopefully that helps make you feel a little more relaxed about this whole thing.

Dislikes, for the record: mpreg, a/b/o, non-con

And now, fandom lists and requests!Collapse )
