But before he can go home to mourn the loss of another one of his mother's yearly traditions, he's accosted by a teenage girl with a strange proposition--that he should stay and have dinner with her and her mother, instead.

    Summary

    Nix is a cosmology researcher at the University of Chicago, plumbing the secrets of the universe, but his time is running out. As the end of his grant approaches, he knows it's time to head back to New Jersey, to the family job awaiting him there, to his wife and his increasingly unhappy marriage. But everything and everyone he loves — the research that gives him purpose, the students he's grown unexpectedly fond of, his colleagues, in the form of Ron and especially his best friend Dick — are in Chicago. Are his career and the life he's carved for himself in Chicago worth destroying his family's expectations?

    Summary

    As a supervillain supercriminal contract worker with a morality deficit, Clint Barton leads a glamorous life. You know, stolen cars, dangerous women, a really confusing relationship with a meddling do-gooder, the works. It's pretty awesome. Except for, uh, medical bills, the mob, and being on the run all the time. That part isn't all that awesome.

    (A supervillain AU where Clint shoots arrows at people and gets beat up a lot. So, not really that much of an AU.)
