    Summary

    When they get together again two weeks later after a long – and admittedly fun – series of texts, the first question Jessica asks is “What the fuck is up with all the emojis? You seemed so normal.”

    “I don’t have a lot of creative outlets,” Natasha says, scanning the street from behind her binoculars. “If we’re gonna be friends, you’re gonna need to tolerate my one form of artistic expression.”

    Jess snorts. “Who says I want to be friends, Romanoff?”

    Natasha smiles to herself and lifts a hand to adjust the focus. “Workplace proximity associates?”

     

    [AU: After the Battle of New York, Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton never signed on for the Avengers full-time. Instead, they quit SHIELD. And bought a building in Bed-Stuy. And somehow, accidentally, ended up joining the Defenders. And now they're stuck with friends who are superpeople in spite of all their attempts to avoid it.

    Basically, have you ever wanted the Widow & Hawkeye Netflix series, in which MCU canon and Fraction's Hawkeye could somehow find their way to a happy marriage? This is that.]

    Summary

    It takes a special kind of apathy to just not bother recovering from the flu. And it takes a special kind of blanket aggression to keep everyone away.

    April Ludgate is a special kind of person, though, who possesses just the right traits.

    That is, until she's lying flat on the floor.

    Summary

    They have a new case. It doesn't quite turn out the way anyone expects it to.

    [Or, the one where Jess is adopted by some psycho lawyers and their pets, and just wants to go the fuck home.]

    [The Price of War 'verse, post-Jessica Jones, spoilers for the whole of Jessica Jones inside. Jessica POV. Some JessTrish, but Jess is a stubborn shit, so fair warning.]

    Summary

    “All the happiness in a kit,” the crumpled brown wrapping tells her. “Yeah, right,” Jessica scoffs, returning to her desk for another glass of all-the-happiness-in-a-bottle.

    Things spiral out of control from there.

    One-shot.
