    Summary

    Reasons that Bucky has vowed never to get involved in Steve’s fights ever again: 1. He’s landed himself in jail, 2. The jail is in the ass-end of Latveria, 3. The only other American within a hundred clicks is an asshole, 4. Said asshole happens to be his cellmate and Bucky’s stuck with him.

    Summary

    The Avengers think he's traumatised, Fury thinks he needs a break, Natasha wants him to recover. Well, screw those guys. Clint is going to go and make some new friends that appreciate how badass and competent and not-messed-up-after-Loki he is.

    It goes great, until it doesn't.

    Summary

    There are always kids that run away to the circus.

    Sometimes, they're from good families, kids from the depths of suburbia, looking for a new, exciting life. The circus is just a grittier, dirtier, summer camp to them, a brief foray into the seedy underbelly of travelling entertainment. They always go home, eventually.

    And, there are kids like Clint. Who have to learn to hit the bullseye every time, and split arrows on cue, who learn to balance on a tightrope blindfolded, who learn not to flinch when the knives hit the plywood only millimeters from their soft flesh. If they learn, they’ll thrive, and they’ll eat, and they’ll sleep, sometimes even with a sturdy roof over their heads.

    Sometimes, much later, some of those kids - from both categories - grow up and become SHIELD agents.

    Summary

    When what should have been a straight forward mission in Hell's Kitchen goes pear shaped due to lack of communication, teaching his teammates sign language seems like a logical step to Clint. Communication when their comms are down - great plan! And including the local vigilante, who's been working closely with them on this, is a real no-brainer.

    Until it turns out said vigilante is an asshole that thinks sign language is beneath him, judging by the way he's stubbornly refusing to learn it.

    (Conversely - Matt's trying, he really is but damn it, those two signs are exactly the same... what do you mean they mean completely different things?!)

    Summary

    “What do you mean we left Clint on Mars?”

    Cap’s incredulous voice cuts through the stunned silence of the cockpit, loud and shocked. He’s standing there with his cowl in hand, gaping at the holo-screen at the front of the jet. Next to him, Tony is standing with his hands on his head, mouth hanging open in a similar fashion. Over on the other side of the cockpit is Jane, who has both palms clapped across her mouth like she’s trying to hold back hysterical giggles.

    For his part, Bucky is just staring at the screen like he can’t quite believe what’s going on.
