argumentum ad ignorantiam - lanyon - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
“Don’t dare say he was a victim,” says Clint because it hurts that anyone could think that Phil Coulson was anything other than a hero.

“He was a good man,” says Steve, calmly, as though Clint has said nothing. “And he made his own choices. And - ” He pauses, his voice softer when he continues. “I never thought I’d have this conversation with anyone else.

[Clint Barton excels at loss. Childhood, parents, dignity, virginity, his brother, peace of mind, his brother again, free will and Phil Coulson.]

quiet_rebel: Avengers Fic: "In the Red" Clint/Natasha, R
They walked back to the safehouse in the same way they walked out. Silent, side by side. This time, Natasha followed him inside. His hands were steady (always steady) when they wrapped around her waist. Sometimes, he forgot how small she was. He pulled her to him, bowed his head until his mouth met her ear.

SHIELD Has Paperwork for Everything - scifigrl47
Clint Barton knows where his loyalties lie, and they have more to do with his handler than his employer. Phil Coulson takes his responsibilities seriously, and a big part of his job is protecting the agent in his care from any threat to his well-being.

At this rate, neither of them is going to get a date. Natasha Romanov has other ideas, and the only side she's on is her own.

Life in E Minor - barelyjoyous
Clint doesn’t think about family or home or I love you when Phil’s family shows up at SHIELD’s medical facility. Fury tells them everything that he can, and assures them that any and all expenses will be paid for. Fury shakes their hands.

Everyone's lost but me! - Avengers fic: The Bad Night (Clint/Natasha)
The adrenaline rush—the before and the after—that was the thing. Oh, sure, your first time killing someone (goat herder or Bad Man) you vomited, but that was just biology. Ever seen someone's insides? It's disgusting. And if you kill someone, you're going to see their insides. Those neat little red holes you see on TV, they wouldn't put down a dog. No, you gotta have the red mist, gotta have the blood splatter. And that's just the liquid component. Solids go too, all chopped up like a smoothie, dribbling out and running off the splatter and just getting everywhere. But once you're used to that—it gets very simple. [They trained Clint for missions that went bad. Adaptation, evasion, escape. They just never taught him how to live when innocent people had died. That was more Natasha's specialty.]

Indebted - sablier_bloque - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
“Just shoot him,” he whispers, but it’s like Sazonov flipped a switch by touching her, and she is senseless, completely inside herself. “Tasha, come on.” He stands behind her, moving her arms to hold the gun toward Sazonov’s face. Clint curls his finger over hers and pulls the trigger. He hopes it will be enough, that she will still consider it her own vengeance. He doesn’t want to take that away from her.

He doesn’t want to take anything away from her.

[Clint Barton is sent to kill a 14 year old girl named Natalia Romanova. He makes a different call.]

Compromised - Koren M (CyberMathWitch) - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]


Clint always thought better while driving, when he wasn’t having to watch so many things quite so intensely. So after replaying what he could remember about the time the world had been tinged blue, which he would only allow while Tasha was awake beside him, he’d finally brought himself back around to their conversation once she’d drifted off to sleep. "I’ve been compromised,” she’d said softly. [in which it's actually explained why she feels as such]

Christmas in St. Petersburg - Amerou - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
"That sent you here to kill me?" she asks imperiously, her English impeccable, and even though she's wet to the skin in blood, shivering from cold and terrified about what she's going to do next, the sheer amount of balls it takes to say that to his face, in this situation, makes him grin ever wider. (Clint will look back years later and say that this is the moment when he first loves her, when she is a little ball of exposed neuroses with no direction and even less hope of a future, but she still has the defiance and the nerve to spit in the face of a stranger.)

Hope is Not a Course of Action - thatdamneddame - The Avengers (2012), Marvel Avengers Movies Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Looking back now, and Clint can see it’s been building for years, that he and Coulson were an inevitable conclusion. Natasha was hard and fast and dangerous, and the men and women before her were more of the same. But Coulson is steel and he knows all of Clint’s secrets and when he looks at him he sees Clint, exactly as he is.

allisnow: Fic: Avengers (Clint/Natasha) - An Arrow, Discarded by allisnow
Like a man looking over his shoulder he sees that the panic has faded; he is no longer worried about what is in his hands because she is in his hands and he is in hers. [He is Clint Barton and he is Hawkeye and he is Loki and he is a rime of blue ice. He is an arrow loosed from a madman's bow.]

Words In Crystal - Fic: World On Fire (Avengers, Clint/Natasha)
She’s a hurricane, a live wire and an atom bomb and he can never be free from the bloody glory of her. [He first sees her from a rooftop in St Petersburg in the light of an inferno.]
