Anonymous said: I'm looking for a fic I /know/ was recommended/found on here before so I'm sorry for the repetition. Clint and Natasha were 'slaves' so to speak and seen as second class citizens. I know the other Avengers hated it. Fury and Coulson 'owned' them. I know there was a scene where authorities came in and searched through someone's house.
We know just what you’re talking about! Don’t worry too much about the repetition.
The first fic in the series is Servos Ad Pileum Vocare (this has the scene you’re looking for.)
Then there’s a side story: qu’ils mangent de la brioche
Another side story: chi bene incomincia è a metà dell’opera
Followed by this: עם יד על הלב
The slavery-verse backstory of Clint: Во́рон во́рону глаз не вы́клюет
A sequel to the above: cyw a fegir yn uffern, yn uffern y myn fod.
A two-part sequel titled coimhéad fearg fhear na foighde, part 1 and part 2.
Warnings: This is an alternate universe where slavery is acceptable. We advise you to read the warnings for each story before continuing, especially relating to Clint’s backstory.
law12-k said: Looking for a fic I read a while ago, back when I first got into this awesome pairing and stalked ao3 like a ravenous fangirl... Anyway. It involved Coulson being uploaded to the SHIELD computers before he died and Clint figuring it out and falling in love all over again. I can't remember the title but I would love to find it again. Any help?
This is why we’re here! You’re thinking of this story:
Title: Leaving Doubt to Fate
Author’s Summary: Clint doesn’t have a functioning arm. Phil doesn’t have a functioning body. They make it work.
Rejected titles for this story: “Ghost in the Machine,” “How Clint Barton Got His Groove Back,” “Phil Coulson Likes to Watch,” “freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

Phil lived alone on an island and found Clint's skin and, not knowing what it was, brought it home. Clint came looking for it later on and Phil gave it back to him, and it was the sweetest thing I'd ever read and I can't, for the life of me, remember where it was! If someone could help me locate it, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
We’re more than happy to help out! This anon fill from the Clint/Coulson Feels Meme fits the description:
Title: Happiness Steps Up
a-novel-idea13 said: Okay, so I remember reading a fic on AO3 awhile back (Clint/Coulson, obviously) and I cannot find it again. I remember Thor made an announcement on TV about Darcy Lewis and Jane Foster, and SHEILD had to pull Darcyy from college. SHe ends up working for SHEILD in New york. Anyway, Everyone still thinks Agent Coulson is dead, including Darcy, until she finds him in a medical bar while shes out wandering on her lunch break. I know more, but I just ran out of room. Can you point me the right way?
Hi there! We’re sorry it took so long to answer this, real life has a way of taking more time than it should.
This sounds like the fic you’re looking for!
Title: I’m Gonna Be a Part of It (Whether I Want to or Not)
Author’s Summary: Relocated against her will to New York, Darcy Lewis has to juggle working as an admin monkey for SHIELD, covertly finishing her degree and falling in love. Only one of these things is easy, and it’s not the one that she thinks it will be.
