so my beloved flist

Was this one of you? I ask, because we just talked about this. Or am I perhaps anticipating the meme?

There should be a Marvel movieverse fic where Fury goes to the circus, discovers Clint, recruits him for SHIELD, and then regrets it for the rest of his days, because MY GOD WHAT A DICK. Coulson is stuck running herd on him, because no one else can manage him. Then when Tony comes on board as a consultant and everyone is marveling over his dickery, they decide to sic Clint on him. Of course, this backfires spectacularly, and the two join forces. Double the mouthiness, twice the inappropriate pranks, ALL THE EGO, JUGGLING.

I want him to recruit Clint and Natasha at the circus. Natasha was the scary clown.

Amazing. My previous Movie Natasha head-canon was that she was a pro assassin before deciding to go legit and getting in via Mr and Mrs Smith style shenanigans with Clint, but ex-clown is much more pleasing to me.

Gymnastics, throwing stuff with great accuracy, and keeping a straight face in the midst of hilarious disaster. Perfect skillset. That move where she bounced Hammer's face off a desk was classic slapstick.

When the Avengers are having quiet times she teaches masterclasses at the New York Academy of Circus Arts.

Now I'm making stuff up.

And of course, Natasha told Clint that she was getting the marriage annulled, and Clint believed her, but she never actually did. So Clint married Bobbi believing that he was single. Big surprise when he finds out he wasn't. Then another big surprise when Natasha finds out that the Red Guardian (her first husband) is still alive, so her marriage to Clint wasn't legal, so Clint's marriage to Bobbie was legal.

I don't know where this is coming from.

I thought the TW was you, too! I figured you suddenly had a lot of spare time this week or something. :DDD

The movie writers need to keep Clint's circus background intact. Yes they do. YES THEY DO. (I obviously need an "I Have Spoken!" icon.)

616 Iron Man and Hawkeye have such a fun backstory. Hawkeye started out as one of Iron Man's opponents, and then became his replacement when Iron Man quit the Avengers. (Avengers volume 1, issue 16.) This is something that should be exploited in fic! Especially because Cap was actually much more Hawkeye's mentor than Tony was. <Image of Cap mentally giving Iron Man a kick in the pants for dropping Hawkeye on him.>

I boggled a bit at the idea of Fury at the circus, but hey, there was that time the Hulk joined the circus as a clown, so, um.

There's an issue of Sgt. Fury where all the Howlers go undercover at a circus. The image of Fury in acrobat tights will haunt me forever and ever.

Drat, we deaccessioned R's (almost complete!) Sgt. Fury collection in 1994. I cannot look this up. *sadface*

I half suspect that Bendis, Fraction et al haven't actually read much Avengers...

Maybe Mark Waid should hold seminars.
