Author has written 18 stories for Avengers.

Not since The X Files have I been tempted to write a fan fic. Since Marvel's Avengers assembled, I've read the amazingly creative stories on this site and been surprisingly entertained. There are so many talented writers who lend their imaginations to these characters and I wanted to join the club, so to speak. I don't fancy myself a writer, though many of my college classes (back in the day) were writing classes. My communication degree has served me well, but I miss writing for fun. This is a great opportunity to hone writing skills, receive peer feedback, and just simply get lost in a fictional universe.

Thanks to anyone who took the time to check out my profile -- such as it is -- and read any stories that I post.

Make This Go on Forever by jinxcharm reviews
"Would you die for him Agent Romanoff?" I looked away. I could feel everyone's eyes on me, but mostly I felt his gaze. His gaze was the only one that mattered. I wanted to look at him, but I couldn't. It would only seal our fates faster. "Yes," I said. Clint and Natasha have always had a complicated relationship. Will things finally get to complicated for the assassins too handle?

Iron Man Knows All by PercyJacksonTheAwesome reviews
While Natasha was undercover pretending to work for him, Tony always wondered why she didn't fall for him. She didn't swoon at his feet like all the other women. Was there already a man in her life? It took all the events of 'The Avengers' to happen before he finally figured it out. Post Avengers. Told from the POV of the hilarious Tony Stark. Rated T to be safe. R&R!

As the Avengers have become a team, things have changed between Clint & Natasha. Are they ready for unexpected twists in their relationship?

I'd Tell You by highlyfunctioningmikyla reviews

"He knocked, not knowing why but doing it anyway. The door was slightly agape which he didn't think anything of, seeing as this hallway had no other occupants. Nobody wanted to be on Tasha's bad side – and she did little to please those with the same or lower rank unless necessary – and so it had eventually become like this. She liked to be alone." Clintasha if you squint.
