Fifteen Short Stories About Teamwork [Avengers fic by blackeyedgirl, on AO3]
Natasha has only met Jane Foster briefly, but she liked the woman. That is the only reason she stops Thor before he leaves the Tower. “What is that?”

“On this day, two years ago, Jane struck me with her car after I fell to this world.”

“Yes,” Natasha says. She has heard that story, thankfully, so she can work her way from near vehicular manslaughter to second anniversary.

“I am told that the Midgard tradition is to bring foliage.”

“Flowers,” she amends. “Not usually trees.”

Thor heaves the hazel tree with its bundled roots behind him. “I have consulted with the internet. In your world, this tree symbolises knowledge. It resembles an Asgardian tree with similar properties, which also offers protection to the possessor. Would this not mean more to her than fragile blooms which are already dead?” This appears to be a genuine question.

Natasha thinks about it. She isn’t romantic. Plenty of men have bought her flowers but none of them have meant anything. The men she cared about in return aren’t the kind of men who buy flowers. She looks at Thor. “At least tell Jane why you brought her a tree.”
