Have a few:

01. MCU, Bobbi/Clint, "Morning Touch"

Bobbi's touch wakes him. She's still dressed, probably just got in.

She kisses Clint gently, like he's fragile and breakable. He closes his eyes against the soft sensation of her warm lips on his forehead then cheek. She runs one finger over the line of his jaw and he waits for her palm to smooth over his skin close enough to kiss her back.

She stills under the touch.

He opens his eyes, smiles at the familiar complicated expression on her face. "I'm okay," he tells her.

Bobbi just shakes her head, golden hair falling into her eyes. "This time."


02. Cowboy Bepop, Faye, "She Runs"

Sometimes she's fragile. Sometimes she thinks she's going to shatter into pieces, and then she runs as far into space and casinos or horse races and the shouts of bets as she can.

She isn't entirely sure sometimes if she's real, if she wants to be real. It's easier to glitter and fight and forget herself in the risk of a toss and a win.

She knows her real name is Faye, but she does not know the rest.

Memory tickles at the edges of who she is, another moment triggers something she can almost remember, and fragile, she runs.


03. MCU, Bobbi/Clint, "Give Me a Chance"

"Why did you save her?" Bobbi stares at Clint as if he's a stranger instead of her husband.

What could have possessed him to take such a risk or to throw away his orders so thoroughly? This is Clint. It's not entirely surprising, but the Black Widow?

She waits out the way his throat works and he looks away before finally shaking his head.

"She never had a chance, Birdie. I was— I never had a chance until someone gave it to me." He stares at her, seeming to will her to understand.

Bobbi softens and pulls him close. "Okay."

So I knew I wanted to write these three characters for the next Tower Party tag and the prompt delivered, because Strike Team Delta are the kind of people who don't like having a moment in the sun. It could have gone a lot of ways this story, but I just started writing and ended up with a lot of mistrust in the wake of SHIELD's fall and Natasha dumping everything online. It ended up with a hint of comicsverse backstory for Bobbi in that she's supposedly dead and had that done when she became a field agent to protect her family. The ending is a trifle ambiguous, as I have a deplorable tendency to do, but all in all, I liked it, I enjoyed writing it, and [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic saved me as usual with her MCU brainstorming brain.

I hope you enjoy!

scribblemyname: (agents of shield)
So as I dig into this intelligence community research, my whole perspective is shifting a bit on a few things.

  1. Did you know law enforcement and intelligence are separate? I know [livejournal.com profile] alphaflyer probably knew that, but it explains a lot to me, including why SHIELD's I stands for Intervention not Intelligence.

  2. I totally get SHIELD's gripe with the X-Men now. It's like the private *coughs* vigilante *coughs* organization that's trying to do SHIELD's sanctioned job without said sanctions. Granted, they have the tools to do it (powers), but they should be joining agencies like SHIELD, except treated like... Oh, right. Still, I get the tension now and the issues and why SHIELD is not fond of the X-Men as a rule.

  3. The IMF and SHIELD are both law enforcement agencies and that changes a lot about the color of how they gather and gain intelligence and then what they do with it.

  4. The IMF, especially being as top secret as it is, is probably considered a terrorist organization to other countries in much the same way that the Red Room could be considered the same to nonSoviet bloc nations. I get why the disavowal thing. Wow. Wanton property damage, "an organization of chaos" indeed, etc. SHIELD gets away with it largely and only because they're intervening in situations where the wanton property damage and fallout is already a given and not started by them. When it is started by them without justifiable causes, I imagine those agents get in a lot of trouble.

I could be reading this wrong, but that's my impressions so far. I am duly fascinated.

Drift - Jemma/Bucky



When I got sick, the first thing to go was my ability to read anything longer than 3K or so words. I ended up watching Andromeda, a show I loved growing up and had never seen all of or all in order. I'm through season 2 now, btw, and I discovered I love it better than Star Trek. It hits my embarrassment squick less frequently, though I haven't the faintest idea why.

So that said, when my first idea for a Jemma/Bucky fic started fighting me (see Stay by the Wayside below), I realized I needed to get a story written on time and it wasn't going to be Stay. I combed through [livejournal.com profile] hiddencait's letter (and I'm pausing to mention here I squeed so hard when I got assigned to her) and tried epistolary (no), fantasy courtship (whoa, no), and coffeeshop au before I noticed space AU again and thought, at least I know I can write space cultures.

What immediately flew off my pen was an Andromeda fusion. I had a ball and everything fit in so easily because I'd been inhaling this 'verse and knew just how it worked. And it's ensemble. I could fit everyone in there. And I could make Jiaying/Cal + Skye happy and healthy. And I got to nod in the direction of Clint/Natasha. And I got to write Fitzsimmons and gluten-free baking. :grins: I love this little story.

Reading Volumes - Clint/Natasha



I knew I could write pretty much anything Clint/Natasha quick and easy and fun and decided on treating to find something for the pairing. Library AU stuck out at me of all the AUs on the prompt and I just stuck them in a library and went for it. Mutal pining is one of my favorite things and deaf Clint or even Deaf Clint is seriously another. It was a total mundane AU, so I got to work in all the lovely if life had been better scenarios like ballet with Dottie and James and competitive archery, eventually Olympics with Clint. I had fun with this one.

She was eclectic in her interests and focused in her reading, plowing through volume after volume in sequence.






SHIELD School for the Gifted - Steve/Maria, Pepper/Tony



I wrote the second story first. I didn't know there would be a first story when I wrote Steve/Maria having a professional disagreement and she runs the school and he runs the training and there's Extremis Pepper commiserating over significant others and Skye angsting over her powers off-screen. And Wanda and Pietro floating around in there because I really just wanted to write something for [livejournal.com profile] tielan (she's another one I love to write for) and when I read her letter, I kind of wanted to write everything so combined it all in one fic. Superhero school for Steve/Maria, neighbors Pepper and Maria, and bonus Wanda and Maria interacting.

Plus, sentient kitchenware. It should be a whole new trope on its own.

Stay (By the Wayside) - Jemma/Bucky



This fic rammed into my brain from the first time I read [livejournal.com profile] hiddencait's letter, precisely because all the AUs she picked made me go, hm. I had offered Bed and Breakfast AU with the idea of challenging myself but I hadn't really thought through any ideas with this pairing.

So I decided to do something different and actually go through the general likes and incorporate. I was originally going to have shower sex and maybe wall sex and definitely huddling for warmth, but yeah, in the end, it didn't happen, and I don't even care because there was makeup sex and semi-canon-compliant (aka canon divergent) bed and breakfast where his story is still the same, just Jemma's running a B&B safehouse instead and I ran away with that. I had to bounce of [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic because total AU sounded more reasonable but she gave me the thumbs up to go for it, and I did, and I'm glad I did. I liked the idea too much to let it go.

Then I had to take a break and work on other exchange fics due, which lost me my great inspiration and I had to get reinspired. This was submitted as a treat literally 1 HOUR before the collection opened. I almost didn't make it in time. But I did. :grins:

Bourne Legacy: Mend



So there's this theme in The Bourne Legacy of lostness. It's used in different ways and that's part of why it resonated so well at the end of the movie for me when Marta says she was hoping they were lost. She spends so much of the movie a little lost and a lot broken and you can see that there was emotional/personal trauma before the events of the movie, then she went through a lot of trauma in it that isn't really glossed over. She's lost, she doesn't want to know, she shuts down Aaron when he asks her what she thinks they do out there, if she realizes the practical application of her "science."

"We were there for the science," she said.

"You cannot be that naive."

Throughout this movie, she wants to be lost, she doesn't want to look at things, but even in that, it changes from this broken, head-in-the-sand thing to knowing and choosing to turn away for something better and different and becomes healthy. It's fascinating. Thus, this fic.

There's this panel in Fraction's run where Clint says what's in him is in Kate, and the prompt was "I'll be reaching for the stars with you; who cares no one else believes," which made me think of how Clint's the first to correct anyone who thinks of Kate as the junior half of their duo. He'll tease, "protege," but she's not junior or lady hawkeye or anything like that. She's Hawkeye just like he is.

Those thoughts just collided and here, have a ficlet.

Want a ficlet? Still open for prompts
scribblemyname: (aos)
So not feeling so hot and I decided to watch Agents of SHIELD earlier rather than later because later it won't be happening. (We won't discuss why I could manage earlier other than that I have been known to get up at 3. I'm crazy. Yes. I know.)


So when talking about gnawing worry with [livejournal.com profile] enigma731 during last week's episode, I said I was worried about two SHIELD's and my babies going to war. This week, I can articulate that worry a whole lot better.

Honestly, I think absolute power is getting to Coulson and while I don't think he's compromised, I honestly wouldn't mind Bobbi completing her mission if I liked the guys she answers to better. I don't, which makes it all feel weird because I'm seriously rooting for Bobbi to be awesome and complete her mission, but frankly if she was aiming to be next Director I'd feel better about it.

All that aside, I can manage to root for Coulson to hold out and Bobbi to succeed while managing not to completely flip out (though it's mighty uncomfortable), but I realized that I'm truly not comfortable with and dislike emphatically the idea of watching May and Bobbi fight (well, no, but fight and mean it).

It's the ladies I don't want to see on opposite sides. As far as that goes, May would make me happy as a new Director too, just saying.

Bobbi and Hunter are making me cry. I didn't even like him, even as her love interest, for the longest time. But I really saw what she saw in him this episode, and nice touch with the super competent I haven't seen enough of since his introduction. From the beginning, their dynamic was always so "she's out of my league" and her loving him anyway, which made him feel like a rest/retreat/place of safety for her and definitely the guy she tries to wrap up and keep safely away from her dangerous world, which doesn't work because he's reckless, heedless, and does not have infinite patience when secrets and lies go swirling around him (this guy is not meant to be a spy, however well he manages it), so yeah. They're making me cry.

Also, what was with the total about-face from May? She was totally like "this is her family; she stays" when talking to her ex, then turned around and told Coulson, "I agree. We don't know how to deal with this." Fic, help me out here!!!

So yesterday, I got tagged for the Daily Count Challenge at [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words.

I went for three: the "game if you are" fic for [livejournal.com profile] lithiumlaughter on the Ficlet O'Clock, a soulmarks AU for Bobbi/Clint/Natasha I started right after a long Bobbi chat with [livejournal.com profile] enigma731, and a Hawkeye Squared hurt/angst fic for [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic that did not gel for me, but hey, two out of three not bad.

Secrets (The Unusuals)



The idea here was syllabic dribbles. In short, I was riding along to work one day and had just written this syllabic poem where there were so many syllables to a line instead of so many metrical feet, and I suddenly wanted to write syllabic drabbles of 100 syllables. Then I thought also of dribbles, which are 50 words/syllables, and then I hit [livejournal.com profile] lithiumlaughter's prompt and thought, why not? I'll try it here. I was going to write 50 of them, but I exhausted the arc as I wanted to tell it (which is totally non-linear by the way), and so stopped at 30.

This Is the Way You Play the Game (MCU)



With a hint of comics flavor at the end, so not really sure if it's up a comics/MCU separatist's alley.

So I wrote "Made and Meant" for the [livejournal.com profile] be_compromised promptathon and what actually grabbed me that I wanted to write more was the complex soulmark system, again bumping into platonic soulmates and what does that mean anyway?

Then I like soulmarks appearing at birth, but it bothers me if you have a birth soulmark that's based on the personality/activities of a person down the line, how is it so accurately prophetic? So I decided to do something different. What if soulmarks only show up once you've solidified a line of probability for yourself and life? I mean, Natasha would have been a completely different person if she hadn't been raised by the Red Room. What if her soulmark for Clint simply never would have shown up if she or he hadn't become the kind of person right for each other?

Then of course, I OT3'ed it and slapped the focus on Bobbi. And wrote a bedroom scene. I will get the hang of writing those scenes again. I will.

Summary:

Bobbi's got the heart mark—marks rather, but if she's ever met the matched set, she doesn't know it. They showed up when she decided to become a field agent, right around the time she wondered why she'd had that mark on her hip since high school but never anything more special, more married forever, less on and off the rollercoaster with Hunter.




Because. Reasons. (616)



And then there's the Hawkeyes. I'm having a hard time getting into Clint's head for once, which is unusual for me. I swear, whoever picked his birth date should move it towards mine. Every "signs" post that matches me on the "Cancer" matches him like no tomorrow. :le sigh:

Anyway, I got words. We'll get them into fic shortly.

So I've been writing about soulmates and/or soulbonds since the story idea that founded Vardin and Kingdoms and Thorn, long before I ever encountered it in fic. One of the things that characterized my fascination was the idea of irrevocable bonds, of how those bonds were formed and maintained, and most of all, how messy it gets when the ideal equation, to use a science term, hits real life.

In real life, people fall in and out of love. People don't always do the hard work of relationships right. People can become good or bad and change in response to trauma. They grow apart, they grow together, or circumstances tear them apart or throw them together.

This particular story arc idea came about because, as always, I wanted to explore an edge case, the outlying possibilities. There's a concept in fanfic out there of platonic vs. romantic soulbonds, and I always go, how do you know? How do you know which is which and how did this consensus come about and if you have a platonic soulbond, does it interfere with forming a romantic one? In this world, it does, and their whole history rolled out in my head from there.

At some point, I'll write out more pieces of the epic because what's in my head is epic. I gifted this fic to [livejournal.com profile] enigma731 because it was talking to her about Bobbi and then Bobbi and Clint and Natasha together that made me want to write it again. [livejournal.com profile] towerparty gave me the perfect prompt for it when I got tagged, and this is the first piece, as usual smack in the middle instead of at one end or the other.

I don't intend to leave them broken up, and there's a whole lot of story of their coming together that I especially want to get around to ficcing, but it's a start.

The silence stretched and Bobbi finally just admitted the reason she'd barely let him get in the door before confronting him with this. She wanted it, but… "She'll hate us both."

Settling in with nail biting.

Total random aside in the middle of mundane and fictive work, my Leverage/MCU fusion dream team would be all female with the token male:

  • Mastermind: Maria Hill

  • Hacker: Skye

  • Hitter: Melinda May

  • Thief: Clint Barton

  • Grifter: Natasha Romanoff

I could stand for Bobbi as mastermind, but I really prefer Maria in that spot.

As you were.

It's official. I pretty much hate the new version of Corel Photopaint I had to use instead of my old one. It doesn't understand the simple concept of create object from mask and save as JPG instead of export. These two things alone are enough to make it hard to work with. Well, I'll figure it out and on my 80% back up to speed efforts (okay, more like 70%), have some Bobbi.

I wrote two stories for the main MCU Ladies Ficathon collection. Treats will be happening later.

First, I wrote "Mitigation" for [livejournal.com profile] enigma731, whose work I adore and who I met through Clint/Natasha, so even though she said she was totally up for Bobbi/Clint on her request, I still ended up needing handholding to be sure this was going to work. I turned to [livejournal.com profile] findthesea because I saw her name in cahoots with enigma a lot and thought she'd know her taste. She did and major shout-out to my first reader for giving me the bravery to post this piece because I am actually very proud of it.

Basically, I fell in love with Bobbi/Clint as characterized in the MCU and am multi-shipper enough to dive right in. Then throw in Natasha and I wanted to respect the close relationship Clint and her obviously have and give Bobbi and Natasha a relationship and it all came out of this comics backstory item that Bobbi's been brainwashed and she's a spy's spy and these women have common ground. And the idea that Clint wouldn't kill Natasha because her situation hit too close to home. She was brainwashed. He wasn't about to mete out judgment on her for that.

Then Odessa and all the theories there and finally New York and "you know that I do" and this is where that post I wrote about I am not. writing. this. scene. again came in because seriously, I'm kind of done with writing the Helicarrier fight and scenes immediately surrounding it. I had to get creative because I was seriously not going to revisit it. Done and bored now.

So that's kind of how I got this epic (for me, miss flashfic writer anyway) friendship fic about Bobbi and Clint and Natasha being close friends. I also homaged a lot of other fics and the headcanons they gave me: "And Then There Was Us" gave me the three arrows scars for Clint, "Say Anything (Else)" (by my marvelous recipient) gave me Clint's broken arrowheads he eventually gets around to fixing, and there were others. I also wanted to go with Whedon and Renner's concept of Clint doing mostly just fine in the aftermath of Loki because this is SHIELD and the job is beyond weird and he knows how to compartmentalize and deal with this stuff.

So much love to my recipient for the prompt and my first reader for the encouragement.

Summary:

They should kill her. Hawkeye should have tried to.

But he didn't and he's staring at her now as though she just randomly stood on her head rather than asked him why.






Second, I wrote "We Are Not Who You Made Us," which actually started with this poetic title dropping into my head and I went, "Huh, muse? What's that about?" But the muse did not answer until I was going through the requests looking for another fic to write and bumped back into [livejournal.com profile] hiddencait's. Now I loved her requests when she wrote her letter, so I just moseyed back on over and read the Jemma/Bucky bit again.

I love the prompt, so let's talk about why I wrote the fic: it's the little things in that prompt. Someone pointed out recently my obsession with writing in little things, and so yeah, that's what got me.

That Jemma calls him James. That she's not the most obvious pick to work on his arm, but it makes sense anyhow. That she has a super-science crush on Bruce. How she's grown as an agent and a person, enough that Coulson sent her undercover in Hydra. That she's growing now without Fitz and how she had to back away because she was doing the opposite of helping by being there for him.

Then I read a post about PTSD and how people who have gone through trauma are changed by it; they have to become a person that includes the experiences they've gone through, and the healthy goal is NOT to get back to who you were, to reclaim the original, but to stabilize with all the new bits and pieces and gaps.

Throw in the title and there was no way I was going to not write this fic. Huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic for the beta on it.

Summary:

There isn't any one thing that she can articulate. It's the way he copes so well but it feels like the difference between homesign and an actual sign language. It's his own way of coping, his own way of incorporating her suggestions but not actually having the talk with Steve that he can't be the person was before. It's the way James holds himself stiff and rigid and doesn't tell Stark when it hurts but winces for Jemma when she asks. It's all these tiny, little details that are all James and not therapy.






Funnily enough, I was super surprised no one guessed they were written by me. On "Mitigation," I totally forgot to replace the em-dash scene breaks with hr lines instead. Then there were my stylistic and storytelling quirks scattered all over it. I had a shot at the story for [livejournal.com profile] hiddencait not being completely obvious, but "Mitigation" was so me, I felt like it wasn't even anonymous.

All in all, this was an amazing ficathon to participate in, and I absolutely love [livejournal.com profile] tielan for hosting it.

Summary:

Bobbi understood not good. She knew what it was like when one of the people you cared about most turned on you (Sitwell, you better be glad you're dead, or I'd shoot you in the head myself) or ended up dead (not Mack, just please not Mack). She could empathize with finding your father couldn't be the man you needed him to be, and with knowing someone died trying to save you—and failed.

Summary:

Skye's studying the dots and lines of Coulson's endless etchings for no reason she can define, perched up on the table like she always used to do when Trip would stand beside her and wonder aloud what she expected to find. But there's nothing to find because they already found it. They've been to the city and unlocked the monster inside her, so she stares at the screen with hands idly sketching along on a tablet with the stylus.
