A Walk in the Park by AlphaFlyer
Gen; Clint Barton & Maria Hill; spies & secret agents; 1410 words
Summary: Clint Barton has complaints, and a job to do; Maria Hill has a ringside seat.

Vulnerable Mind by Athelassa
Gen; Grant Ward & team; mission gone wrong/action/hurt/comfort; WIP, 8551 words
Summary:“Look,” Coulson said with a frown, “I’m the director, I make the decisions. This is a mission that suits Ward’s qualities perfectly.”
Oh yes, right. There was primarily one quality that predestined him for this mission.
“I get it, Coulson,” Ward threw in with a smirk of false bravado. “I’m expendable.”

(baby you're) super by SafelyCapricious
Biospecialist; very AU; superheroes & supervillains/humor/crack; 2943 words
Summary: They give him what amount to super powers and then they try to brainwash him. Needless to say, it doesn’t stick. He has to hand it to whoever in HYDRA’s upper echelon decided on the order of the procedure.

Surprisingly not angsty, given the subject matter.

The only exception (is where the lines overlap) by Poetgirl925
Skyeward; AU; spies & secret agents/action/UST; 20700 words
(part 3 of The Head and the Heart series)
Summary: Skye and Ward continue to build on their working relationship as they both try to ignore the attraction that still simmers between them. Skye's first field mission doesn't go as planned, and Grant realizes that Skye is a dangerous exception to his hard rules.

Important words (you understand it's love the first time you say "no") by Matarreyes
Skyeward; epilogue; 3369 words
(part 3 of the Who they become (always depended only on them) series)
Summary: He'd be content to leave the past well enough alone. Forget his time with John, forget his time with Coulson, live just the present. Too bad that Skye is under some strange conviction that if she makes enough balancing, she'll convince Coulson and Grant to play along. It'll never work, he knows, because half of the hate on Coulson's part is subconscious seething about the fact that Grant took Skye away from him.

While I wait for the guests to arrive so we can EAT (I'm so hungry), I'm sorting through my bookmarks for some end-of-year fic recs.

The Most Adequate Christmas Ever by igrockspock (Avengers)
Tony/Pepper, Nat/Clint; humor; 3481 words
Summary: It's December twenty-third, and Tony has figured out absolutely nothing about Christmas.

Hide by [tumblr.com profile] smalltownethics
(AKA The 5 times Skye thinks of and/or almost meets Grant and the one time they meet face to face)
Summary: Hiding seemed to be something she did a lot.

The Devil’s in the Details by moodycactus
Fitz/Ward; AU: canon divergence; Explicit; 6039 words
Summary: This fic takes place after Ward’s escape, only he returns to collect Fitz. He claims he wants to ‘fix’ Fitz but can Fitz trust him? Fitz gets caught up in Ward’s plan and Ward gets more than he bargained for. Describe the fic without spoilers: Like an ep of “White Collar/Burn Notice” with a dash of the film “Shame”.

And a vid...

The Map by CloudAtlas and Crazy4Orcas
Gen w/ hint of Clintasha; 2261 words

Summary: Written for the prompt: You know how people have pinboard or sticker maps with all the places they've been marked with coloured pins? And maybe places they want to go? Clint and Natasha have a map, which started out as a joke and was on the wall of Coulson's office or a SHIELD break room, but has migrated to the Avenger's Tower or elsewhere... Anyway, they have this map. With all the places they've been shot, stabbed, fallen from high places, fake married someone, fake married each other, been arrested, broken out of jail, been banned by that country's government, been banned from going to again by Fury...

Insert amusing conversations and/or incidents.

Three Times The Team Nearly Blew Their Cover (And One Time They Did That Themselves) by [archiveofourown.org profile] andacus
Nat/Clint and Tony, Thor, Hulk; romance/humor/undercover as a couple; teen; 3456 words
Summary: Three (of the many, many) times The Avengers didn't think before acting and caused Clint and Natasha more trouble than they needed. And one time they almost blew their own cover (wink wink, nudge nudge).

Clint/Coulson; magical hijinks/outsider POV; teen; 1765 words
Summary: Clint is on a desperate mission to commandeer everyone's freezer space. Phil is in desperate need of a freezer.

(In any other fandom I'd have labeled this as crackfic, but for all I know something like this happened in canon somewhere...)

Nat & Clint; AU: space/detectives; teen; 1159 words
Summary: Detective Inspector Barton is not surprised to find Natasha Romanoff in the vicinity of a corpse. Not even a corpse in the underbelly of the space station and her in a ball gown.

Sightlines by [archiveofourown.org profile] cat_77
Gen; Clint & Natasha, Tony; post-Winter Soldier; teen; 12131 words
Summary: Not everyone was at ground zero during the attack, and a single victory doesn't mean the war has been won. If you can keep your eyes open though, you might just still survive.

I'm a bit unsure on the Cap 2 spoiler situation, so to be on the safe side I'm putting even the title behind spoiler code...

Red Bull and Pringles by [archiveofourown.org profile] cat_77
Gen; Natasha, team; teen; 2987 words
Summary: Everyone had a vice, hers just proved far more dangerous than it really needed to be.
She had been distracted. She was the Black Widow, she should never be distracted and this was a prime example of why. But she had been distracted and lax in her awareness of her surroundings and was contemplating her less than healthy snacks and the gorgeous drive and the actually quite relaxing lunch she had shared with her old contact and how well life in general had been going so recently with friends and colleagues she could trust and so her hand was not on any discernible weapon when she opened the door to the seemingly mostly abandoned gas station.

An Ounce of Prevention by [archiveofourown.org profile] the_wordbutler
Gen; Ward and team; early team fic/character study; M; 13266 words
Summary: When a group called the Normalizers starts killing people with abilities by hawking a false cure, Grant Ward and the rest of Coulson’s team head to rural Illinois to consult with a famous but elusive geneticist.
Grant expects it will be just an ordinary mission. What he finds is something else entirely.

Just when I thought I had that 2048 thing under control, [tumblr.com profile] ralkana made a MCU Hawkeye Edition.

Miraculously I stiill got all my week's work finished and will take tomorrow off if the weather is nice. (To go climbing and learn Japanese, not to play more of the game. Well, 80/20 perhaps)

Say Anything (Else) by [archiveofourown.org profile] enigma731
Natasha/Clint, Clint/Bobbi; complicated relationships/but no love triangle; teen; 5101 words
Summary: "I got married." Clint glances down at the ring on his hand, the exaggerated nonchalance of the movement telling Natasha that his surprise is feigned. He’s been waiting for her to ask. "Her name is Bobbi, and I'm pretty sure she's the smartest woman I've ever met."

“So you met her three weeks ago,” Natasha says slowly, trying to put the pieces together in her mind, “and you fell in love and you married her in that time, while also working a S.H.I.E.L.D. op?” She can’t quite keep the skepticism out of her voice.

In which Clint is a car crash, and Natasha learns what it means to be a supportive partner.

vid rec: SHIELD trailer vid that also includes Black Widow, Hawkeye and Fury. (The vid was made before the show started airing so it only uses footage from the trailer, but it looks pretty epic.)
