"If there is a god, I hope he is like you".
Or, Clint’s thoughts regarding what he does for living.
This has been on my mind since ever since the first spoilers, but the trailer made it finally impossible not to write it down… If you’ve seen the trailer, there’s no spoilers. If you don’t want to be spoilered at all, better skip it.Also: I really should be writing (something else) this weekend, so if anyone feels like making a cover for this, you’ll have my eternal love.+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

feedback: is not only appreciated but hugged, petted, caressed and called George :D
beta: If anyone has time to correct all my foolishness, I’d be happy.
Steve knows what she is up to even before she unbuckles and gets up from the co-pilot seat. There’s still dozens of Quinjets and interceptors around. He will be busy enough getting them out of here while there’s still chaos and at least not all of the rockets and laser rays are aimed at their engines.
They should make a beeline for the nearest safe retreat, not linger in the air over the ruins of the Helicarrier, watching blood stained floods eat the fires of the explosions as it sank.
It’s a S.H.I.E.L.D. thing.

For this exchange gifts can be: fic (minimum 1,000 words), art (one wallpaper, a painting, a picset, a graphic), fanmix (minimum cover and 5 tracks), icons (minimum 10), or a gift basket (a mix of any of the others with a split that makes it equivalent: ie 500 words and 5 icons).
THE RULES OF THE COMM APPLY and your gifts need to include Clint and Natasha - as friends, partners, lovers, colleagues, spouses, enemies… We love other characters and they can be involved as well, but the focus, as always with our comm, is on these two.
