I had Clint sketched with a shirt on at first. Then I said to myself: Self, what are you doing? So I took it off. In the interest of studying anatomy. For Science!
*me, showing sketch to roomie*: Does this look like a friendly sparring match?
Roommate: I’m not getting that at all.
Me: Between two deadly assassins?
Roommate: Then yes.

After leaving the Red Room, but before SHIELD started showing interest in her, Natasha felt free to explore the world and have fun between missions on her own terms. All she wants this time is a perfectly pleasing one night stand. She doesn’t expect she’ll meet this guy ever again.
This seemed like a fun trope to play with, so I decided to give it a try. And then plot happened. In this chapter: Natasha is getting used to SHIELD, while Clint wishes for something better than his current (boring) mission. Be careful what you wish for, Clint. We also meet Kate Bishop, who is older in this fic than she is in the comics, and also a SHIELD agent.
I owe a huge thank you to my writing pal and my beta reader shenshen77. Thank you kindly, you lovely lady - you’re Clint to my Natasha.

Just … this is not happy. At all.
Sometimes in life, things happen that you don’t think about, that you not once in your wildest imagination believe could happen. And when they do, you stop for a moment and you look to your left and to your right and wonder, just for a split second, if this is actually your life or if someone somewhere fucked something up and you’ve ended up in someone else’s fuckfest of a life.
