Title: Probem Child
Fandom: Avengers
Series: Unpaved Road of Good Intentions [1/?]
Rating: R
Pairings/Characters: Slow-build Clint/Coulson, eventually Natasha plays a big part in the series.
Content Advisory: Explicit reference to past physical and sexual abuse in Clint's past. There's an age discrepancy between Clint and Coulson, as well as a power imbalance. If you'd like more specific information, or you think there's something I forgot to warn for, please let me know what I can do.
Notes: This was written for the kidficstory big bang. knowmefirst has made an AWESOME banner for it, that I have tried and failed to post three times with it so far--I'll get it up tomorrow when I'm on a library computer instead of a tablet!
Thanks: Thanks to miriad for the amazing beta, ivorysilk for the cheerleading, and arsenicjade for sharing the exact same Clint!feels. <3

Summary: Coulson wasn't born the bad-ass in the business suit. Hawkeye didn't start out as the trusted eye in the sky. This is the story about how SHIELD grew up, and how Coulson and Clint grew together right alongside it.

The teenager that they lead into the holding room is grinning at him. It would be less discouraging if his teeth weren’t covered in blood. The guards cuff the kid’s hands to the table and his ankles to the chair. They don’t undo the chain around his waist that ties the whole mess together, so he’s hunched over and jangles every time he moves. )*

I also have a tumblr now!

I just e-mailed in my letter of resignation.

I'm now working only one part-time job. This is the least I've worked since...May, I think? Not counting the beginning of January, when I was bedridden with the sciatica/back pain from the herniated disc. It's so much better, but acts up if I sit for too long, or sit in bad chairs. (WHICH, ALSO, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SHITTY CHAIRS IN THE WORLD? Shouldn't we have figured out CHAIRS by now? Jeez.)

I have enough money to make February's rent. And my folks will help me out if I can't make March's. I've had really good luck getting jobs so far (I apply like a fiend and I interview well). Hopefully I'll find something good by mid-February. That's my yay!plan. My back-up plan, if all else fails, is to move to St. Louis, where my parents have an empty floor in their house, and will trade me walking their three ridiculous dogs twice a day for rent money.

Since I've been in school for so many years, and moved around so much, this is only the second time I've had to quit a job for a reason other than "Soon, I will be in a different state!"

I'm going to go bury my stress in coffee and teen!Clint meeting teen!Natasha, then proudly bringing her back to Coulson like a cat leaving a mouse on the doorstep. "LOOK WHAT I BRUNG YOU! Whoops it's still alive and has claws and teeth. I LOVE IT EVEN MORE PLEASE CAN WE KEEP IT?"

Title: Abel Had It Easy
Fandom: Avengers
Series: Dyslexia!Verse. Chronologically this comes first, but it also works fine as a standalone.
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Child abuse and neglect, minor canon character violence and deaths (not Coulson’s!), and a character with dyslexia being treated insensitively. If you need more information about potential triggers, please PM me and I’ll be happy to help.
Pairing: Gen (later in the ‘verse, Clint/Coulson)
Notes: This is Barney’s side of the backstory, drawing heavily from Jim McCann’s series, Hawkeye: Blindspot, where he makes all the abusive backstory canon.

Summary: A lot of Barney’s stories started pretty much the same way. Dad was drunk, and then… And then, and then, and then.

“You learn also that life has a sick sense of humor. Everything it gives you can explode in your face. And like that, you learn you can be orphaned, over and over again.”
—Clint, from Hawkeye: Blindspot


Dad was drunk. )

Title: the new millenia
Fandom: Avengers
Spoilers: Major Thor 2 spoilers!
Pairing: Jane/Thor
Rating: PG
Notes: I saw the movie today and the first line of this fic got stuck in my head and wouldn’t leave.

Summary: Thor's life is measured in centuries, not days.

Thor had loved his brother for more than a thousand years.  )

Title: Fucked Up the First Time
Series: Part 2 of Unconventional Geometry
Fandom: Avengers Movie!verse
Rating: R, although it'll be NC-17 eventually.
Pairing: Pepper/Tony leading into Pepper/Steve/Tony, Clint/Coulson/Natasha
Word Count: 3,300
Warnings/Content Advisory: References to neglectful/alcoholic parenting and prior torture, but nothing outside of movie canon.
Notes: I'm posting this as a WIP on my DW/LJ, anticipating that I might need to make changes to it once I finish. When it's complete, I'll post it to AO3. It's just easier to keep going if I make the parts that are finished a little more official, and a little less intimidating.

Summary: Sometimes it's easier to say no than yes.

Title: Remember When
Fandom: Avengers Movie!verse
SeriesUnconventional Geometry
Rating: PG-13, although it'll be NC-17 in the next part
Pairing: Pepper/Tony leading into Pepper/Steve/Tony
Word Count: 6,100
Warnings/Content Advisory: References to neglectful/alcoholic parenting and prior torture, but nothing outside of movie canon.
Notes: I'm posting this as 1/2 on my DW/LJ, anticipating that I might need to make changes to it once I finish 2/2. When it's complete, I'll post it to AO3. It's just easier to keep going if there's a little mid-way feedback, you know? (Which is basically code for "I'm greedy and insecure and new at this pairing, and could use some encouragement.")

Summary: Steve gets advice from Coulson, Tony loves his robots, and it's all Pepper's fault.

Pepper started it. )

Title: Past Tense [2/2]
Author: hoosierbitch
Fandom: Avengers
Rating: PG-13
Series: Dyslexia!verse (LJ tag here, DW tag here, or on AO3 here)
Content Advisory: Grief, depression, character with a learning disability, dealing with the (temporary!) death of a loved one. References to alcoholic parents.
Thanks: To [livejournal.com profile] ivorysilk, as always.

Summary: Three months after destroyed landscapes and aborted kisses and painkillers that don’t work, Natasha’s gunshot wound heals enough for her to walk without a cane (a cane with a sword in it, an unexpected present from Hill) and Clint sleeps through some nights without the assistance of vodka and Natasha’s murmured lullabies.

Title: Moving Into Past Tense
Fandom: Avengers
Series: Dyslexia!Verse (found via LJ tag here, or on AO3 here).
Rating: PG-13
Content Advisory: Depression, loss of a loved one, and a character with a learning disability.
Thanks: When [livejournal.com profile] ivorysilk takes over the world, I am first in line to be her minion. She beta'd, cheerleaded (whatever, that's a word now), and bullied, which is the only reason this got done. Thanks, bb.
Notes: THIS STORY WILL HAVE A HAPPY ENDING! #coulsonlives, y'all. Just not until the next chapter. (I never write unhappy endings. Just complicated ones sometimes.)

Summary: Loki’s gone and New York is as safe as it ever was. The city’s damaged, but it’s still here. They all are. The Avengers, capital letters so big that even Clint can hear them. The Avengers, and Phil The Avenged, who’s dead.

There is a war. )
