be_compromised is a Livejournal community dedicated to the pairing of Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff. It was originally inspired by their MCU dynamic but the community welcomes all versions of the pairing.

We’re a community for fans of Clint Barton aka Hawkeye and Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, individually as well as paired together as friends, partners, lovers, or spouses. Character bashing and ship wars are assassinable offences, so please don’t. This bar is all about the love.

Things you will find here are fics, icons, graphics, meta, vids, discussion posts, fic searches, exchanges, challenges, promptathons, liveblogging, all the fannish things and general geeking out. We do love pictures, graphics, interviews, and fun things concerning Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson, but we ask that you don’t post any RPF (Real Person Fanfiction) or any gossip/speculation about their off-screen non-work lives. Our primary focus is the fictional characters of Clint Barton and Natasha Romanoff.

This community was begun in response to the portrayal of Clint and Natasha in the Marvel films. There are people here that have never picked up a comic, that started reading comics because they loved the Marvel films, or that have been reading comics for years. Which is to say that if you want to talk about Clint and Natasha just as they are in the films that’s fine, if you want to mix the films and comics that’s fine, and if you’re a die-hard comics fan that’s fine. And if you want to write AUs, crossovers, and speculate about completely off the wall ideas that’s fine too. We love all interpretations and views, and we love discussing them!

We have a wecolme post with a bit about us, what we get up to, and some handy links HERE and we have a tumblr HERE.
