I liked this story a lot. I thought Natasha and Bruce were both very much in character. And Avenger game night (complete with to-scale elevators made out of drinking straws) sounds amazing.

Awesome story :D really well written (and I love the rumours Tony spreads (Clint crying into his pillow XD))

I love this. It's the second best Avengers Fanfic I've read. I honestly love this, mostly because it hits quite close to home.

Oh, I'd forgotten how much I ship Natasha/Bruce until I stumbled across this! Love it. Need more. :DD

Oh yes please do a sequel! I love the two of them. They had great chemistry in the movie too.

I think you did an excellent job of slowly easing in to trust each other. Honestly Bruce seemed pretty controlled of the Green guy in the movie. Just that one slip up around Natasha and you can see her insecurities bubble up. I agree Mark and Scarlett did excellent jobs, honestly they all did excellent job in their character. I really enjoyed your fanfiction it was like watching a movie. Kudos man!

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. Seriously. I can't describe to you how much exactly, but it's a lot. IT'S SO FRIGGIN' PERFECT. The tension and slowly-developing relationship between Natasha and Bruce, her mistrust and his patience, how she eventually lets her guard down and he's prepared to back off in order to make her feel more comfortable, gah. It's not even overly romantic, or even really slightly, but it makes my heart warm. Maybe because I could see it going there eventually - I don't know what it is about this pairing, but they really do draw me in that way.
Also, everyone else, but mainly Stark and Clint and Coulson, were perfect too. I'd love to see more Avengers/family stuff if you were to do a sequel to this in the future (their reactions to N/B would be hilarious). Or even in an unrelated story, so long as you write more! Awesome work.

So cute, and totally in character! Love Natasha's inner monologue.

I'm definitely voting for the sequel, especially some romance between Natasha and Bruce! I too think that they would be amazing together!

Loved it. Gave me the cozy fuzzies. More helpful reviews to come, maybe, if my brain functions properly at a later date.

Natasha shakes her head. "You've been spending way too much time with Stark," she says, heading for the door.
"Tony's a great guy," says Banner. "You should give him a chance."
"He emailed me porn," says Natasha.
"He emailed everyone porn," says Banner easily. "It was very disturbing." They're walking down Carlton House Terrace. It's getting dark.
"You getting the jet back to New York?" asks Bruce.
The banter is my favorite part, though I'm not an especial fan of any of your ships.
"Why? You want a ride?"
"If you're offering."
Natasha sighs. "Fine."
"You know, I really think Pepper would appreciate having another woman come to game night," says Banner when they're nearly back in New York.
"No," says Natasha.
"Clint's been crying into his pillow every night," tries Banner.
"Stop listening to Stark," says Natasha.
"It's making Coulson very sad," continues Banner.
"Will you all shut up if I come?" says Natasha.
"Yes," says Banner. "And I promise not to involve the other guy if the umpire makes a decision I disagree with."
"I'll think about it," she says.
