Rectober 2015: Day 11 - I Will Go Down With This Ship

I have a lot of favourite ships, but not as many OTPs, which is why I wanted to focus on OTPs a bit. The one I chose is the biggest and the most popular of all my OTPs (I guess?), and I decided to share links to some of my current favourite fics about them. Different genres and ratings, canon compliant and AUs, short and long, older and newer - there were a lot to choose from. I tried to pick those I haven't recommended before. Enjoy!

Recs Favourite Ship


1. Title: Barton Boys
Author: uofmdragon
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Jasper Sitwell/Melinda May, Francis Barton, Natasha Romanov, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, James Rogers, Maria Hill, Kate Bishop, Torunn, Melinda May, Sam Wilson, Billy Kaplan/Teddy Altman, Other Marvel Characters, Original Characters
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 33,331
Warnings: -
Summary: When Clint was teenager, his ex-girlfriend brought his son, Francis, to him and said that she couldn't raise their child. Clint didn't want to see his son go into the system and decided that he would raise Francis himself. Since then Clint has been trying to be the best father he could be, but could never really settle into one place.
With some help from an old friend, Clint has managed to Francis into Shield Academy, a where there is handsome assistant principal. Clint has sworn off relationships, but his old friend wants to see him happy and is willing to do whatever it takes to make him happy.

Why I loved it: Single Dad!Clint and Assistant Principal!Phil. How can I not love that? Kid!fics are not usually my thing and I don't read them, but I gave it a try and I'm happy I did. I like the interactions between Clint and Francis and how they both try to adjust to the new situation, I love Phil and Clint's relationship development, I really like how this whole storyline was established, all the friendships, I love that Clint works in a diner (and is an awesome cook), I love that Billy and Teddy appear - I love a lot of things about this fic. And I want to hug Phil, Clint and Francis. A lot.

2. Title: Costumed
Author: BonitaBreezy
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Original Characters
Rating: General Audiences
Word Count: 1,743
Warnings: -
Summary: Clint loves looking at Halloween costumes, but this year he sees something he really didn't expect.

Why I loved it: This one is short, but lovely. A child dresses up as Hawkeye and Clint gets emotional. Right in the feels.

3. Title: Courting For Dummies
Author: Selenay
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, the Avengers
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 32,055
Warnings: -
Summary: Phil Coulson. Clint Barton. Two of SHIELD's top agents.
Professionally brilliant. Couldn't plot a romance with a map and a compass.

Why I loved it: As the title says, this is a series that focuses on Phil and Clint flirting with each other a lot, saving each other and trying to work out what is happening. The Avengers have to work on their timing, there are lots of emotions and a lot of cock-blocking. It's great.

4. Title: The Dangers of Dating a High School Principal
Author: tawg
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Tony Stark/Pepper Potts (mentioned), Natasha Romanov, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury, Steve Rogers, Maria Hill, Thor
Rating: Explicit/NC-17
Word Count: 108,199
Warnings: -
Summary: Clint has never been a fan of museums, especially not museums where the exhibits are trying to kill him. But he will admit, it's not a bad place to meet people.

Why I loved it: AU in which Phil is a high school principal. He and Clint meet when a museum is attacked and they end up teaming up. They both have demanding jobs, there's always some kind of an emergency, they keep getting interrupted, but they try to make things work. There are friendships (I love Clint and Bruce's friendship), banter, cuddly dragons (sorry, wyrms), misunderstandings, there's drama, and it's a great series overall.

5. Title: Environmental Control (One part is a WIP)
Author: lasergirl
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Natasha Romanov, Maria Hill, Nick Fury
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 19,427
Warnings: -
Summary: Phil works for Stark Industries (Medical), and has his life down to a fine science. But meeting a bike messenger named Clint shakes things up for him.

Why I loved it: AU in which Phil works for Tony and Clint is a messanger whom Natasha asks to deliver Phil's cards. Phil has OCD and Clint is very unpredictible. They talk about Captain America cards, they get to know each other, Clint finds out more about Phil's hobbies... I love it!

6. Title: Falling in Love is Hard on the Knees
Author: orderlychaos
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Maria Hill, Jasper Sitwell, Nick Fury, Natasha Romanov
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 65,458
Warnings: Action movie level violence and small amounts of blood.
Summary: Clint Barton first met Phil Coulson minutes after he'd literally fallen through a warehouse roof in Estonia and really, that set the tone for their whole relationship; a relationship that over the years would grow to include friendship, respect, smartass comments, a redheaded assassin, slightly terrifying conversations with Nick Fury and a whole lot of pining.
Falling in love really isn't easy for SHIELD agents.

Why I loved it: There are no words to describe how much I love this fic. Phil's friendship with Jasper and Maria is wonderful and the fact that Jasper seems to have a fanboy crush on Hawkeye is jusy lovely. Clint is surprised that Phil treats his with respect, they both learn a lot about one another and there is banter. Also, Clint and Phil (and Jasper) help Natasha. Can I say that I really want to hug Jasper? It's honestly one of my all-time favourite Phil/Clint fics!

7. Title: Five Times the Coulsons Surprised Clint Barton
Author: Schuyler
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Agent Kay/Emma Peel, Nick Fury
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 10,350
Warnings: -
Summary: Phil takes an injured Clint Barton home for Christmas. His parents handle the rest.

Why I loved it: A crossover with Men in Black. Clint gets injured on a mission and Phil takes him home for Christmas. Clint meets Phil's parents, the parents try to get to know Clint, Clint gets insecure and there are so many feelings to deal with... I love it. Agent Kay is awesome. And so is Phil. And Clint. And Emma.

8. Title: A House is Not a Home
Author: infiniteeight
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, the Avengers, Jasper Sitwell, Maria Hill
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 20,077
Warnings: -
Summary: Phil Coulson has always been a workaholic. He kind of thought all SHIELD agents were, but when the Avengers Initiative gives him reason to visit Clint at home for the first time, he discovers that Clint actually has an active domestic life. Clint cooks, he cleans, he has an interior decorating hobby. He has a such a nice home that Phil keeps finding excuses to spend more time there...

Why I loved it: Clint lives in the Avengers' Tower and Phil finds out that Clint is a very domestic person who cares about his home. I love how this fic is written, I love how Phil wants to get to know Clint and how Clint asks Phil to spend time with him. Clint cooks, there's karaoke, slow build, relationship development and it's all kinds of lovely.

9. Title: I Could Get Used To This
Author: kultiras, mapleandmahogany
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Nick Fury, Natasha Romanov, Jasper Sitwell
Rating: Explicit/NC-17
Word Count: 19,669
Warnings: -
Summary: For prompt: From before they become a couple, through falling in love. Even if they’re separated for a while (not broken up) they know that they won’t be apart forever.

Why I loved it: Nick recruits Clint and introduces him to Phil. Clint becomes a specialist for S.H.I.E.L.D. and even if he doesn't work with Phil they develop feelings for one another. Also, Nick is protective, Clint and Phil care about each other, and I love the way in which this fic is written.

10. Title: A Lunch Counter Love Story
Author: Saone
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, James "Bucky" Barnes/Natasha Romanov, Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Jane Foster/Thor, Carol Danvers/Jessica Drew, Peter Parker/Gwen Stacy, Bruce Banner, Thor, Darcy Lewis, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Maria Hill, James "Rhodey" Rhodes, Aunt May
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 30,167
Warnings: Vague mentions of violence towards Clint resulting in permanent damage to his hearing, possible abuse in Clint and Natasha's past, and a homicide case.
Summary: Take one ex-circus performer, one homicide detective, a dash of meddling cohorts, a heavy helping of pie recipes, mix well, and bake until somebody gets a date.

Why I loved it: Clint and Natasha run a diner, and Steve, Bucky and Phil are detectives who work on a case. Clint adds a lot of pies to the menu to impress Phil, Natasha deals with emotions, Darcy teases Clint, everyone (especially Maria) wants Clint and Phil to get together, Clint cooks for Phil a lot... and a lot is happening overall. It's great. I love it.

11. Title: More Than a House (a part of More Than... Series)
Author: uofmdragon
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Natasha Romanov, Steve Rogers, Thor, Lucky the Dog, Nick Fury, Bruce Banner
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 10,480
Warnings: -
Summary: Phil Coulson is living a quiet, small town life. When the old Carter place next door is bought by a handsome renovator.
Clint Barton has been all over: buying houses, fixing them, and flipping houses. He's never felt a desire to stay until he gets to know his latest next door neighbor.

Why I loved it: Home Flipper!AU. Clint and Phil meet when Clint works on a house in Phil's neighbourhood. Phil knows moving is a part of Clint's job and Clint doesn't want to start a relationship because he knows he will be moving as soon as he finishes the house, but they develop feelings for each other anyway. There are emotions, Phil and Clint try to work things out, Lucky is adorable, Nick and Natasha are supportive friends and it's lovely.

12. Title: I Would Tear Apart the World (Just to Get to You) (Companion Piece: I'd Search Forever (Just to Bring You Home) by ladydeathfaerie)
Author: gwynhefar
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Nick Fury
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences (Companion Piece: Explicit/NC-17)
Word Count: 7,983 (Companion Piece: 18,942)
Warnings: - (Companion Piece: Graphic Deictions of Violence)
Summary: Agent Coulson has been missing for two months when SHIELD calls off the search.
(Companion Piece: When they find him, he's been missing for forty-one days.
Two years after Clint risks everything to rescue Phil from captivity, Phil is forced to do the same.)

Why I loved it: This one is definitely one of my favourite Phil/Clint fics ever. Clint loves Phil so much that he endengers his life to get him back when Nick and S.H.I.E.L.D. give up on him. And Phil is equally protective of Clint in the companion piece. I love both fics to pieces and I just had to include them here. I definitely recommend them.

13. Title: quickly now, go tell the Avengers that the ducklings are no longer eggs
Author: emmypenny
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Nick Fury/Natasha Romanov, Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Pepper Potts, Thor, Darcy Lewis, Loki
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 5,958
Warnings: Minor Character Death, brief (three sentences) mention of homophobia resulting in a minor being disowned, and a single mention of child abuse.
Summary: The Avengers have an Easter egg hunt. (You know this isn't going to turn out like an Easter egg hunt is supposed to.)

Why I loved it: Tony organizes an Easter egg hunt for Clint (and Thor). However, they find out that the eggs they used were fertilized. Phil (and Clint) ends up being parent to thirty ducklings. And all of them listen to him. How can I not love this fic? I love how Clint trolls Phil and calls the ducks their babies and then introduces the Avengers to all the ducklings XD Did I mention that Clint gives names to all the ducklings? It's one of the most adorable things ever! Except one chapter that is angsty and full of feels.

14. Title: There's a Dog-Related Pun in There Somewhere (Don't Worry; Tony's On It)
Author: Perpetual Motion
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, the Avengers, Jasper Sitwell, Maria Hill, Nick Fury
Rating: General Audiences
Word Count: 11,410
Warnings: -
Summary: Phil gets turned into a corgi. There are emotions involving Clint. That's literally the entire plot.

Why I loved it: Phil is temporarily turned into a corgi, he has a difficult time adjusting, and Clint is the one that ends up taking care of him. Even if they understand each other very well, they have to wait until Phil is human again to have an actual conversation about feelings. I love how this fic is written in general. All the conversation, the plotline, Phil and Clint's interactions, it's all lovely. I love it to pieces.

15. Title: Your Family Is My Family
Author: Selenay
Pairing(s) Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Original Characters, Tony Stark, the Avengers
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 22,680
Warnings: Discussion of domestic violence (in the second chapter)
Summary: Phil's family always seem to be around for the important moments in his life, whether he knows they're important or not.

Why I loved it: Clint pretends to be Phil's boyfriend after Phil was asked to visit his family with Clint. Things get awkward, Phil's sister realizes Clint is Hawkeye, Phil finds out Clint might not be pretending and there are a lot of family feels. And in the second part there are even more feels, as Clint and Phil have to take care of Phil's nieces.

*Mood*: okayokay
