Parts 3 and 4 should be done tomorrow, at which point I will also edit this baby and post it on AO3. Unfinished and unbeta'd because time constraints, RL and nasty cold.

FIC: "By the Book" (T, no warnings apply)

Author: [ profile] alphaflyer
Title: By the Book
Characters: Clint Barton, Kate Bishop, Natasha Romanoff, Tony Stark, Lucky the Pizza Dog, Jessica Dawson (Background), Bobbi Morse (Background)
Relationships: Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton & Kate Bishop
Length: app 8,400 words
Summary: Clint Barton's love life isn't just a car crash, it's a multi-vehicle pile-up. Kate decides to lend a hand.

Author's Note: This story was initially written for a Hawkeye Bang, from which I had to withdraw when I got sucked into an RL vortex. The piece draws most of its inspiration from the Matt Fraction Hawkeye run (without being slavishly canon compliant), with a dash of Avengers Assemble #5 and a hint at events from the MCU. A mash-up, really, but that’s what fanfic is for, right?

Thanks to my beloved beta, [ profile] jrbarton. I added a few bits after she was done, so any glitches are mine. A belated birthday present for [ profile] geckoholic.

Dear MCU exchange author ...

Thank you for writing a story for me!

Here's what I like:

Competence porn.  Banter.  Smart- and badassery.  Professionals doing what they are good at, and damn the bureaucracy. Respectful relationships with everyone, although I can make exceptions when the guys leave the toilet seats up.

I like the guys generally, so am perfectly happy to have them show up in the background, via cameo or reference (including inferred relationships).

Happy with crossovers (e.g. between Avengers/Thor/IM/Cap movies, Agents of SHIELD, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Here's what I'm not fussed by:

Romantic or sexual relationships for their own sake -- I prefer a good character piece, friendship or mission!fic to people jumping into bed just because fanfic.  Women being established as superior by virtue of making the guys look like incompetent morons. (Putzes in ordinary life, they can be, of course!)

I don't really care for Daredevil, and haven't seen Jessica Jones, so appearances by characters from those shows will be lost on me.

Not a fan of death!fic.  At all.  And please no torture, graphic violence, A/O/B, and the like.

FICLET: Ace in the Hole (G, no warnings)

So someone left a comment on Double Deuce, to the effect that it was "... too bad they didn't give Peter [Quill] the iPod as well as the Walkmen."  I suppose yes, Tony and Natasha could have sacrificed an iPod to their new friend. This is what happens when he discovers he wants the thing after all, it'll give him an excuse to come back!

FIC: Homeward Bound: The Adventures of the USS Avenger in the Delta Quadrant (T, no warnings)

Title: Homeward Bound:  The Adventures of the USS Avenger in the Delta Quadrant
Author: [ profile] alphaflyer
A Gift For: [ profile] celeste9
Rating:  Teen
Warnings: None (some off-screen death and movie-level cataclysms
Prompt used: I really, really love team fic, so please feel free to include any other characters you like. I enjoy clever AUs where the characters still remain recognizable in different circumstances... And here was the ringer, the thing that made me jump at Celeste's prompt: Star Trek fusion with Clint and Natasha in Starfleet. How could I resist...
Summary: Sent to track the rebel ship Black Widow and to try and persuade her captain and certain of her crew members to work with Starfleet in defeating the Chitauri invaders, the USS Avenger under Captain S. Rogers finds itself displaced to the other side of the galaxy.
Author Notes: This prompt was a no-brainer for me, since I already had my cast of AU characters all lined up thanks to a request I picked up during last year's December Talking Meme. Plus, my first two years in fandom I wrote exclusively for Star Trek: Voyager, so... :-)

Of course, though, I would pick a topic that begs to be a $#%&ing epic, in a summer when RL is kicking me in the teeth with, among other things, a transatlantic move.  Needless to say, the epic did not happen.  But I think I got enough of the story together to give my giftee a sense of where it is headed (with a bit of interim closure) -- and there's a promise that there will be more to come!! (Right after I get my MarvelBang under some kind of control...)

I hope my Giftee will forgive me that this isn't complete.  Me, I'm just happy that I managed to slide in under the wire...

FIC: Angel of Mercy, Angel of Death (T, war time violence)

Title:  Angel of Mercy, Angel of Death
Author: [ profile] alphaflyer
Rating:  T
Warnings:  war time violence

Summary: Clint Barton turns up in a refugee camp that is under attack -- but is he the answer to a prayer, or a just another nightmare? An aid worker's perspective.

Author's note: Sometimes it bears remembering what “master assassins” actually do for a living, and why the MCU goes to some pains to show us that being saved by the Avengers can be a distinctly mixed blessing. Inspired by the lyrics of Angel of Death, by HoneyHoney.

A companion piece, of sorts, to "In the Service".

FIC: "Savile Row" (NC-17)

Title:  Savile Row
Author:  Alpha Flyer
Rating:  NC-17
Warnings: Sexy times.  Also some off-stage assassin-y stuff.
Relationship:  Clint/Natasha
Summary: Sometimes, Natasha thinks, working for S.H.I.E.L.D. has its advantages – one of the more immediate ones being the privilege of seeing Hawkeye in a tuxedo.

Author's Note: First posted on LJ for the [ profile] towerparty flashfic smut challenge, to [ profile] paperclipbitch’s prompt “it's criminal when you whisper in my ear.” (Confession time:  Being me, I had to stick in a bit of mission!fic, so the thing got out of hand a bit in terms of length, and I had to beg our mod for an extra 90 minutes to finish.  This version is edited and cleaned up a bit.)
Also, AoU?  What AoU?

PS:  I don't usually write smut. This felt a bit ... awkward.

Characters/Relationships:  Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff

Summary: Clint asks Natasha for dating advice.

Author's Note:  At one point, [ profile] igrockspock left a bunch of prompts on her journal, one of which was Clint asking Natasha for dating advice even though she isn't exactly the right person.  I couldn’t find where she left it (or the exact wording), but it sounded like fun so it rattled around in my mind...  It was probably supposed to be headed elsewhere, but I chose the ship travelling down De Nile.

FIC: Rain on the Scarecrow (PG 13, no warnings; AOU spoilers)

Title: Rain on the Scarecrow
Author: alphaflyer
Rating: PG13
Warnings: None (unless potential spoilering counts?)
Characters: Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton, Thor, Bruce Banner, Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff,spoiler character )

Summary: When the Avengers need a respite, Hawkeye knows where to take them.

A/N:  I haven’t seen Age of Ultron yet, so tagging this as containing “AOU spoilers” is perhaps a bit of a stretch. But I’ve seen the trailers, of course, and read some of the speculation, especially about “That Farm” and the people on it -- it is those that inspired this tale. So if you want to remain completely unspoiled for anything you might see, do not read further until you have seen the film.

I have no illusions that any of this – including the powers I’m ascribing to Scarlett Witch or to the Mind Gem in Loki’s sceptre – will turn up as part of MCU, or are comics canon. Nor is this intended as the opening shot of a shipping war, character erasure, or anything of such a silly nature. Consider this an AU, a work of highly speculative (fan) fiction; what it boils down to is that this is a story I wanted to tell, as a fan of both Hawkeye and the Black Widow, and the things their stories and experiences bring to the Avengers.

The title is taken from John Mellencamp’s eponymous song; [ profile] spyforaday may not even remember suggesting it to me as a “Clint-type of song" but she did, so this story is for her. Infinite thanks are due to my BFF Runawaymetaphor and to [ profile] geckoholic, who collectively made this much better than it started out.
