She is offering him sanctuary, he realizes, from the monsters he’s found inside of himself. But this is about what she needs too, her scars not so different from his own. A post-movie fic about learning to live when everything is different.

Postcard of a Painting - CloudAtlas - The Avengers (2012), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
The second time Clint was sent on a long term mission for SHIELD, Natasha was sent on a deep cover operation of her own. She was away from the US for almost two years. Clint’s mission was about the same length and during the entire two years they were apart, she received three postcards – which was amazing really, given the fact that they were both on /long term deep cover missions.. [ A history of Clint and Natasha through postcards.]

[For as long as he can remember Clint has always been getting into trouble for seeing things that he shouldn’t, or rather for getting caught at it. Oklahoma, 1934, and this time trouble comes in the form of a girl.

For the prompt 1930s dustbowl AU. Clint and Natasha are members of a travelling circus. Dark/supernatural elements a la Carnivale optional but very welcome]

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.

They only need ten rules to ensure (relatively) peaceful cohabitation.

Post-movie everybody-lives-together fic with fix-its and costumes. I mean, additional costumes. Also awkward matchmaking. And a bubble bath.

“You remembered me.” She settles over him, feels the length of him against her.

“It could have killed you,” he says, “me remembering you.”

[It is not always about remaking, about reconstruction; sometimes it is just about trust.]

“No,” she whispers. “Clint, it saved us both.”

Words In Crystal - Fic: Right Where I Used To Be (The Avengers, Clint/Natasha
At thirty-four and nearing his ninth year at S.H.I.E.L.D, he’s technically the senior agent in their partnership but Natasha’s never felt like anything other his equal. That, however, doesn’t mean she can’t tease him about it.[They've been partners for just over a year and six months when S.H.I.E.L.D records declare Natasha to be twenty-one, and Clint asks her to join him for a drink.Clint laughs.]

“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.]

Tulipfic - Chess Pieces
Clint wouldn’t have believed it if he saw it, but he could feel it. Natasha had always been pure, tightly coiled energy. She stalked the halls of the S.H.I.E.L.D. base like a caged tiger, on the prowl and ready to pounce. Her muscles were always primed and ready for the next move, but, with his body pressed so close to hers, he felt those muscles start to relax.

The moon accepts your ridiculous proposal - Avengers Fic: Two Truths and a Lie [1/2]
Natasha woke suddenly, full of fear and pain and the realization that she had no idea where she was. She bolted upright, only to to meet with a blinding pain in her head.

“Take it easy, hot sauce, I don’t think you’re ready to start doing jumping jacks yet.” [Clint and Natasha remember Budapest very differently.]

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.)

Bob5 - I'm Making Eyes at You (Black Widow/Hawkeye; One-shot)
Even despite their intimate relationship, Natasha feels cold and detached. Always operating under total control, every assurance of affection seems shallow and plastic. Clint tries to work through it, but after all that training Natasha really can't let go.

So he cheats on her. He takes a lover that responds to his touch without calculation, who really lets him know how they feel, whose sweet murmurs seem genuine. He does it partly to fill the cold ache of loneliness, but partly to test if Natasha really feels anything for him at all.

It breaks her heart.

allisnow: Fic: Avengers (Clint/Natasha) - Out is Through by allisnow
He pulls back, wide-eyed as a panicked horse, and she knows the fear has him in its grip again: the fear that he’s going to take her against her will, that he’s going to kill her, that he’s going to go back to what he was before. The fear that he can’t remake himself. "We're going to do a little experiment," she whispers into his ear, hands on his shoulders. "Very scientific. If he's in there, if I'm your trigger, we're going to root the bastard out." [Natasha is not afraid of dreams. (She dreams, but she does not remember.)]

Where you from, Barton?" they ask in the army. Clint gives 'em all a different answer, and every last one of them is true. Clint's from the circus, and the hell if he isn't the best act you've ever seen. Clint's from the road, and if you look real hard you can see it, the thick yellow line cut straight through him, keeping one side from the other.

Her hair is still red in his dreams, redder than it ever is in life, and it could be blood or dye or just the taint of his memories, crystalline in the way that the memories of those who must focus on the little details or die must be, and he wants to touch her everywhere, but it's only ever her hair that his hands run through, and she smiles at him, a smile he's never seen in the waking world, and he smiles back, because it's enough, somehow, just this, but, always but.

Rivers and Roads, an avengers fanfic - FanFiction.Net
Two days after everything came so terribly close to ending, Clint asks for a leave of absence. Fury looks at him, sees everything he's so desperately trying to hide, and nods. He tries not to show how thankful he is for the silent understanding—tries to preserve a little bit of his dignity as he turns and walks away, fighting the urge to run with every marching step.

city of sin - [fic: the avengers]
Clint’s preferred spot was whatever shadowed corner he could kick a chair in to and he was just settling in when a hand shot up Mrs. Romanoff’s backside. She took it in stride even as the atmosphere seemed to still, the piano tapering off, the men at the bar turning. [0 miles to water, 20 miles to wood, 10 miles to hell and I gone there for good ]
