    Summary

    Clint's breath catches as Bucky's blue grey eyes slide past Natasha to burn a hole in him. "Yes ma'am," he tells her, but he doesn't take his eyes off Clint. "No biting."

    "Breathe," Bruce reminds him. "You've got to breathe, Clint."

    Clint tries and for a moment he thinks his lungs have failed him, but then he manages a stuttered inhale through his nose and everything is fine, it's fine.

    In.

    Out.

    In.

    Out.

    It's a double edged sword. Every breath is tainted with nitroglycerin.

    ----

    Or the one where Clint Barton has never met Bucky Barnes before in his life, and if he says it enough maybe everyone else will believe him.

    Summary

    There’s some noise that isn’t Clint up ahead, and Bucky squints into the dark. Clint has a flashlight, the circle of light from which is bobbing back and forth across the floor and walls. Bucky’s low-light vision is pretty good - hence why he’s not carrying a flashlight himself - but all he can tell is that it’s not a robot. In his experience, they’re not that subtle.

    After a moment the sound gets a little louder, and the shape of it coalesces into something recognisable.

    “Ugh, rat,” Clint mutters, right as said rat skitters past him and then Bucky, within a few inches of Bucky’s boot.

    The little Winter-Soldier-processing voice in his head says, Rattus norvegicus, 9 inches. The Bucky-Barnes voice says, oh fuck.

    Summary

    “Hey, Barnes. Enjoying the Tower so far?” Clint greets. He braces for the charm and the blinding smile in one, two...

    It never comes.

    Barnes' expression is luke-warm at best; calculating would probably be a better word. The man shrugs. “Sure,” he says and turns away.

     

    When Bucky Barnes comes to the Tower, Clint expects a sniper buddy and bonding time at the range. What he gets is an asshole who seems determined to antagonize Clint while charming the pants off the rest of the team. And that's just the beginning.
