31Art of Persuasion » Natasha's art of persuasion is actually a gift; a gift that comes with a price. It also seems that being a human with no suit of armor, super serum, Godly powers or a meaner greener half was becoming a bit of a delicacy within The Avengers. The secrets of one spy might be more than any of them expects. (AU. Well, slightly. Follows the movies up until after CA: WS. AU from there.)

32 One of the Girls Scott Lang was finding it surprisingly difficult to find a place he belonged within the tight-knit group of heroes. They were crazy. A new breed of crazy to be exact. For some reason he found himself most comfortable with the girls: a snarky spy and a friendly witch. Who would have thought?

11 If Tomorrow Never Comes They had never really clicked together socially nor in the heat of a fight, although Natasha could admit she was partially at fault for that because while Bruce naturally avoided social situations, Natasha had unnaturally avoided any social situations that included him; until he saved her life.

13 The Moon and the Stars Jealousy and envy were hideous, treacherous and trivial little emotions that Natasha had made other women feel on many occasions but had never once had the displeasure of feeling herself.

11 Fireworks Natasha found her eyes drifting to his face; how he looked calm and serene with the colors cascading over his features. It was almost hard to believe that he was the same man who could Hulk out at any given moment if his heart rate elevated too much. Pre-Brutasha/AoU.
