    Summary

    Five years before they meet as Hawkeye and the Black Widow, they meet as Clint and Natasha. There is a romance, a marriage, and then, predictably, everything goes absolutely to hell, and Clint still thinks they should be getting royalty money from the DVD sales of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. (Or: boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. Boy and girl get married. Boy and girl neglect to do background checks.)

    Summary

    "You're all grown up," Tony tells him. "You've got a wife, and kids. Why didn't you think about them before you chose the wrong side?"

    Clint is a father first. But not all family is flesh and blood.

    Summary

    She hadn’t been sure, at the time, what had finally driven her away from the training center, brought her to book a flight to Waterloo and rent a car for the drive out out to the farm. But when she had packed a bag and headed to the nearest airport, it hadn’t been her apartment in New York or her condo in DC or her London townhouse or any number of hidden bolt-holes she kept around the world that she’d flown to, but a creaking, busy farmhouse in Iowa. (Or: It's been a long journey to get to where they are, and it'll be an even longer journey home.)

    Summary

    Toni’s eleven when Howard hits her so hard she goes sprawling. Laid out on the thick carpet of the den she can’t swallow down the blossoms that bud to life in her mouth fast enough.

    She brings her hand up to her face and when she pulls it back there’s a perfectly formed hemlock blossom in her palm.

    Toni stills, everything in her going quiet in that moment.

    Hemlock.

    You will be the death of me.

    Toni looks down at the blossom, at the omen she’s birthed to life, and knows it for the prophecy that it is.

    He’s going to kill her one of these days.
