Title: We were emergencies by gyzym
Fandom: Avengers
Rated: Explicit
Pairings: Clint/Natasha

Author's Summary: It's not about being unmade; it's about remaking, one aching step at a time.
Word Count: 37154

Why I Loved It: Augh. I feel like this is probably one of those fics that ruins me for all others. I don't always ship this pairing but when it works it's amazing. I would suggest you read the author's note at the end, as there are, as the author states, some parallels with a rape narrative. Basically the story is about the aftermath of brainwashing and memory-futzing. Post-Loki, Clint finds that he wasn't the only one whose mind was messed with - Natasha really does believe love is for children (again) and she doesn't remember their relationship.

This is a really gorgeously done look at how they might start to get past that, how they might mesh up their pasts when they're so full of gaps and times they've been taken apart. As well as the premise, and the obviously excellent writing (because it's gyzym) I really love the fact that this story is about two dangerous, slightly scary people in love.

Also! Not one but two podfics available for this one.
