Title: #girlavenger, or How Natasha Trended on Twitter and Saved the World
Fandom: Avengers (MCU)
Characters/Pairings: Natasha Romanov/Maria Hill, Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers (implied), Tony Stark, Phil Coulson's body, cameos from various Marvel characters, a few OCs
Warnings: some misogynistic language
Summary: Natasha becomes an internet phenomenon. It's nothing that she was ever trained for.
Notes: Written for Heroine Big Bang 2013, with artwork by inkvoices and a mix by salvadore_hart (link tba).
I've had the idea in my head for a while, of Natasha adjusting to becoming a super hero, how it differs from being a master assassin/spy, and what it would take to make her enjoy her new-found celebrity.
The hugest of thanks go to samalander, who is my forever girl; the ever-lovely theoreticalpixy; Kyle, the perfect cheerleader; and to thesifsterhood, who was a marvelous beta. Without them, this story would be much worse. Smaller shout outs to chromatographic and stichomancy, who are wonderful confidence boosters.
I'd also like to give a huge shout out to inkvoices and salvadore_hart for creating the art and mix for my story. Thank you guys so much for your patience.
