Prompts for Pie 19: Clint Barton Should Not Be a Child Right Now

(Warnings for bad things happening to good kids, physical violence against a child and discussion a history of physical and emotional abuse.  Also, it has no ending!  You have been warned.  APPARENTLY I DO BADLY WITH KIDS)

There was only one rule: Get up.

If he stayed down, it didn’t save him. It didn’t protect him. It just made it easier for the bastards to hurt him. He wasn’t interested in making it easier for anyone.

So Clint Barton had one rule: if someone knocked him down, he was going to get back up.

Someone was crying, one of the little kids, probably, maybe the boy with the huge dark eyes and the blue t-shirt who’d been beside him. Maybe the little girl who didn’t even seem to know how to talk. Clint didn’t know. He didn’t know how he’d ended up here, and neither did anyone else. Kids. Dozens. Hundreds, maybe. Kids. He didn’t know any of them, he didn’t know where he was or how he got here.

But he knew this guy was a bastard who kicked kids. And Clint hated him.

So when the man backhanded him, knocking him back to the floor, Clint got up again. And again, and again.

The bald man was huge, and threatening, and he knew it, even as he reached down and pulled Clint off of the floor. His fingers wrapped around Clint’s neck, shaking him, and Clint struggled to breathe.

“You,” he growled, “are annoying me, little boy.”

Clint grinned at him. “Good,” he managed with the last of his breath. He wanted to scream for his brother, he wanted to scream for help, but he was pretty sure that if there was help to be found, it would have already come. He shouldn’t have gotten involved. He shouldn’t have gotten between the monster and the little girl he was kicking.

But Clint was dumb. Hadn’t everyone always told him. Clint was dumb.

miss-ingno asked: for a second I assumed the tag "grumpycakes" was the cat's name before I realized it was the asker's xD (though that does bring the question: does Peter keep the cat and what's Fluffy McRageball get named?)

This is acceptable!

Grumpycakes, your name has been co-opted to name a vicious hellbeast of a kitten.  8)

prismatic-void asked: So I had a fit of boredom and discovered that "What Do You Say to a Naked Elf?" is a real book and I am pleased. So pleased.

Oh man, I forgot to put that in the fic tags!

Yes.  Yes it is.  It came out when I was still working at the bookstore, and I just sat there, staring at the cover in awe.  Then I bought it immediately, I was so impressed with the fact that someone had gone with that title.

As Anna points out, t is far better than the title suggests. 8)

grumpycakes asked: so who did finally get the fiesty cat out of the tree? ps that was perfect

I assume Phil was pulled out of a nice warm bed filled with a Clint, and was none to happy about it.  Upon finding out WHY he was pulled out of a nice warm bed filled with a Clint, he simply stares at them with an expression of ‘what did I do in a past life to be cursed with you idiots?’ and then in front of a crowd of SHIELD agents, in a full suit, he goes up the tree.

And comes down with a scruffy ball of rage perched on his shoulder.

Peter brought him home.

Prompts for Pie 18: Peter Parker Makes Poor Choices

Peter stared at the tree. “I don’t want to come up there. But I will if I have to.” He leaned in. “I am warning you. I will come up there.”

The tree did not respond. Peter wondered if he really wanted to go up there. Again.

The flicker of light, in the corner of his eye, caught his attention a split second before it coalesced into a burst of heat, and then the Human Torch was hovering in the air, just above Peter’s head. “Hey, Webhead. Whatcha doing in the park in the middle of the night?”

“Meditating,” Peter told him. “And I need serenity and solitude to do it right. So you should go now.”

Laughing, Johnny Storm landed, his flames dissipating in a heartbeat. “What are you doing?”

“Nothing. Go away.”

Johnny looked around. “No. Seriously. What are you doing here?”

“Shoo. Flame on, or whatever it is you do, go.” Peter made a shooing motion with his hands, flipping his fingers in Johnny’s direction. “Away with you. Off you go. So long, farewell, auf widersehen, good-night!” he sang.

“Is there a crime happening that I can’t see?” Johnny held up a hand, flames swirling around his wrist and up his fingers. “I figured there was crime. But no. It’s just you. Talking to a tree.”

“I’m communing with nature,” Peter said. “Need a private moment with the tree.”

“Buddy, if you’re looking for privacy, you shouldn’t wear that outfit. Kinda loud.”

Prompts for Pie 17: Running with Steve, Sam and Carol

“You know what I like best about running with Captain America?” Carol Danvers asked.

“No, what do you like best about running with Captain America?” Sam Wilson replied, grinning

“This isn’t going to end well for me, is it?” Steve Rogers said. They both ignored him, which took real effort, because they were running alongside him, Sam on his right and Carol on his left. They had a talent, however, for talking around him. One of these days, he was going to smack their heads together.

It was a pleasant thought. He had it often enough during these early morning runs.

“Having to wait at the corner of every street for the walk signal!” Carol said, glaring at Steve out of the corner of her eyes.

“We’re not running into traffic. It’s dangerous,” Steve pointed out.

“It’s pre-dawn,” Sam said. “What the hell traffic are you seeing here that we’re not, Cap?”

“It’s the law.”

“Jaywalking is the Massachusetts state sport,” Carol said.

“And we’re in New York.”

“Pissing off cabbies is the New York state sport,” Sam pointed out. “It’s got a great motto.”

“Yeah?” Carol asked, grinning. “What would that be?”

“I’m WALKING here!” Sam yelled at the sky.

“I regret introducing you two,” Steve said.

jujutherubberduckie asked: Hi there! I have a totally-not-creepy obsession with your words. So. Some of your WIP are only on tumblr? So... how am I supposed to keep up with them? I mean, I follow you, but I might miss something? -pathetic puppy eyes- would you mind just uploading them to archive?

Ah, I get this question a lot.

The issue is, I do a lot of ficlets and mini-fics and bits and pieces here and there and it feels…  Weird to archive them.  For most of them, I don’t really consider them worthy of BEING archived.  

I try to keep my fic page updated: http://scifigrl47.tumblr.com/fic  But I’m pretty haphazard about that, too.

Honestly, I don’t know how I’d move them to AO3, even if I did.
