Another Black Widow practice; and I like how it came out! ♥
I know what right looks like, Matt. I know.
Occasionally… a client hires me to recover something they’ve lost. Or something that was stolen from them.
the chronicles of nat and cat
You know what’s really cool?
In Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye series, Clint has named his dog “Lucky”.
And I’m just now reading Edmonson’s Black Widow. In it, Natasha has a cat, which she has named “Liho”.
For those of you who don’t know, Liho or Likho is a Russian spirit/creature type thing who is the embodiment of bad luck.
So Clint’s dog is named for good luck, and Nat’s cat is named for the opposite.
You know what’s even funnier? We didn’t know this when we came up with “Liho.”
Happy coincidence or the power of the Marvel zeitgeist? You decide.

She doesn’t remember their relationship. He does.
Black Widow # 08

I wish I didn’t need to know.
a softer world #1000
(one.) she is close enough to touch; if you feel brave enough, foolish enough, you can reach out and brush a strand of fire behind her ear. you’d leave this room without your hand. you think it might be worth it.
(two.) her smile is different, now. it is sharp and slippery and incomplete, and not the one you are used to being thrown to you. every so often you think you catch flirtation in the flash of her teeth; you try not to let your hopes rise, but it’s hard to keep them down.
(three.) without shades of laughter dancing in her eyes, she looks like a whole new woman.
(four.) you keep tossing out snarky comebacks, and she keeps ignoring them. it’s almost familiar, but you know she’s not ignoring you because she knows how it annoys you, now.
(five.) she’s trying to hide how she’s favouring her right side, keeping the weight off her wounded leg as much as possible. you don’t know how to explain that she’ll have to try much harder to become unreadable to you.
(six.) she doesn’t use your name until she’s leaving. it stings deeper than you were expecting — she knows who you are, but she doesn’t know you, not anymore. your fingers curl into fists without your permission. you’re sure the weight of what you’ve lost must be written across your face, but she’s always been able to read you, so that, at least, isn’t new.
(seven.) you want to touch her so badly it sits like an ache in the pit of your stomach.
(eight.) you have no idea how long it will be until you see her again.
(nine.) her approval still means too much to you to be safe.
