    Summary

    Clint’s not the kind of guy who tells people he loves them on a regular basis. That’s probably for the best; Natasha might break out in hives if he told her too often (so, any more often than every few life-or-death scenarios they wind up in). But he’s great at a well-timed pat on the arm or one-armed hug to show someone that they’re not alone, and he’s great at the offhand compliment that seems absent-minded but hits the target just right.

     

    Clint’s got better aim than most, and that’s not limited to bullets and arrows.

     

    OR

    Coffee might just be Clint's (receiving) love language, and he's on a mission to return the favor.

    Summary

    It’s been two months since the storm, and Childe hasn’t seen Zhongli not even once, not since that fateful meeting with the Signora where the truth is finally unveiled.

    And what a fun little kick to the gut that is, the realization that not only had he been played by all sides, but he's also being tossed aside like trash now that his use had run its course.

    It’s not that Childe doesn’t get it. He’s a Harbinger. He knows first-hand what it means to do his duty, to put the mission first and his personal feelings far, far away, preferably locked up in a box, where it wouldn’t interfere with his job. He knows what it’s like working with vipers, to scheme and plot and lie in wait for the opportune moment to stab his opponent in the back.

    But this time, this time Childe can’t help but feel a little (a lot) gutted.

    Stupid. He’s gotten himself stupidly attached.

    --
    A story about Childe trying to move on after the events of 1.1 Update, but some of his actions have consequences, and those consequences have followed him back to Snezhnaya.

    NOTE: THIS FIC WAS DRAFTED BEFORE 1.1 UPDATE CAME OUT. MIND THE CANON-DIVERGENT TAG FOR THIS REASON.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes and Clint Barton find themselves living the same moments again and again switching roles and sometimes playing new parts, but they are going around in circles. After Clint goes missing following a bank heist and an assassination attempt on Captain America, Bucky assumes his role and tries to find him. As he hunts the streets of New York he is reminded of the last time the two found themselves trapped in this same scene and he knows he can't let it play out the same way. He has to make sure this time they don't fall apart.

    //

    ‘Did you,’ Bucky traced his hand along the back of Clint’s sofa and thought for a moment. ‘Did you mean what you said?’ Clint sat back down on the widow ledge and sighed.

     

    ‘Depends what you’re talking about, Buck.’ Of course Clint knew exactly what he was talking about, but something made him need to hear Bucky say it. 

    //

    Also known as: I was mad about Matthew Rosenberg (not really love the dude) for completely disregarding the history Bucky and Clint shared before TOS and just had to fill in the blanks. Also happy National Winterhawk Day!! (I am a day late).
