Clint Barton can never resist a dartboard. (Until he can.)
Fandom/Ships/Characters: MCU!Clint, ft. Fury, Hill, Laura, Natasha, Steve, Thor, Bruce, Tony & Lila | Clint/Laura & Clintasha
Reccer Notes: This was like...eighty shades of wonderful. And I was picking out fave lines/paragraphs, because for longer pieces or when a particular line stands out I make sure to comment with that to let the author know they nailed it (ahem) but, um...I only narrowed it down to eleven here. Which was why I made the separate post.
reccer rating: 9.5/10

Spoilers for the story under the cut, obviously.

11. He’d like to punch out a few of the people around him for sheer annoyance, but he’s still above that, at least for the moment.

10. "Tony’s grand tour of the Tower ends on the communal recreation level, because of course it does."

9. "The Black Widow has no idea how to treat the concept of downtime."

8. "“If I thought that was all there was to it, I would be slapping a monitoring bracelet on you and putting you on probation, Barton. But you know what I think? I think you’re a lot smarter than you want other people to believe.”... “Putting the mission in jeopardy was careless,” ...“Putting yourself at risk was worse. S.H.I.E.L.D. is invested in you, Barton. Maybe next time you’ll keep that in mind.”"

PUTTING YOURSELF AT RISK WAS WORSE HELLO AND THANK YOU COMMANDER HILL

(Having someone actually call out the whole "acting cocky because you're not sure of yourself but actually you're wonderful shut up" thing was v nice)

7. THE WHOLE EXCHANGE ABOUT FURY POTENTIALLY BEING A PIRATE

"He might be more than a bit buzzed at this point, but he’s definitely not imagining the eye patch."

6. LAURA BEING AN AGENT *ahem tiny agents by association*

"there’s a light in the warm brown of her eyes that makes him want to know her, want to find out who she is....“Laura,” she answers, returning his handshake. “And you probably shouldn’t do that, Agent Barton, considering that as of tomorrow, I’m your Supervising Officer.”" (also, she says S.O. I say damn right)

5. "He joined S.H.I.E.L.D. because he was promised more autonomy than what he was allowed as a soldier, and now here he is, like a puppy with his tail between his legs, ready to apologize for every decision he’s just made, if only someone would tell him which ones were the mistakes."

4. "No one is watching, but Clint takes the moment to step back, getting a proper stance and considering the ways he’ll need to adjust for the worn equipment." (and then he thinks of a very close shot as sloppy, of course)

3. "He can’t quite put his finger on what it is that attracts him to Natasha, makes him want to get under her skin, learn a few of her secrets. Maybe it’s ill-advised empathy, a need to help her fit in, now that he’s brought her to S.H.I.E.L.D. Or maybe it’s something less concrete than that, some undeniable instinct. Then again, maybe it’s just his damn death wish talking."

2. "“I’d be tempted to make a comment about the one of us with no social life here,” says Clint, taking a few steps toward her and smiling to undercut the sting of his words, “but you’re the one holding all the knives.”"

1. LILA WITH THE DARTS AND LAURA BEING A MOMMA BEAR AND CLINT HAVING AN INNOCENT FACE (and Laura and Clint having talked about weapons as gifts because duh)

"there’s a half dozen technical things he could correct about her stance, right now he doesn’t think he’s ever seen anything more perfect."

(I'm a sucker for kids in general, and damn, you got me.)
