(no subject)

I have to say that the posts about/scans of the current Hawkeye comic have almost tempted me to check it out. And I think the last comic book I owned featured Donald Duck. However...

1) Comic continuity, yikes. It's like coming into a soap opera that's been on the air for 50 years and trying to get a handle on who's who and who's slept with who and who's alive and who isn't and what's going on with all the other characters... yeah.

2) Related to (1): I'm really rather happy in my little MCU sandbox. Things are simpler here.

3) I would feel compelled to root for a 'ship. And I just can't ship Clint with anyone but Natasha -- see (2) -- no matter how awesome Kate is. Or Bobbi. Or Jess. Just... no. I'm ship-monogamous.

4) Probably most importantly: the idea of Clint as the Perpetual-Adolescent Screwup does not appeal to me. At. All. (Again, all I've seen is scans and peoples' comments. And maybe I'm reading too much into those.

The art is quite nice, though.

*helpless giggles*

*puts down New Avengers: Breakout, and yes I read it in four hours*

So, I don't read comics and what little I know about the comics' characters storylines pretty much comes from wikipedia. And generally I'm not impressed with novel tie-ins because they hardly ever get to do anything fun with the characters.

But this book.

nice

FIC: Incidental by allisnow

Title: Incidental
Rating: Mature
Fandom/Pairing: Avengers (2012), Clint/Natasha
Summary: There are stories. There are always stories. The trick is to leave them with a tale but not a face, or at least not a body.
Notes: This is just something that burbled up mid-way through writing my Secret Santa fic and wanted to become a real boy. Many thanks to madjm for the beta! This story can also be found on AO3.
