things of wonderful perfection

I’ve been trying to catch up on some be_compromised Secret Santa wonderfulness, because I want to comment on as much as possible before the reveals, and it seems that I didn’t post here about my gift…even though I’m pretty sure I did *side-eyes LJ*.

If you haven’t seen it, it’s Comfort and Joy, currently Anon. by always_a_queen (PG for implied sexy times and mild language; Avengers; Clint/Natahsa, Thor/Jane, Tony/Pepper, and (overt hints of) Steve/Maria) Summary: ’Tis The Season: Clint and Natasha (and the whole team) and the holiday season. Or: The Avengers celebrate Christmas and everyone gives Natasha unwarranted advise about her love life.

I love it to pieces and I left a huge comment saying why, but basically this has so many wonderful details and moments and thoughts and feelings and team things and pop culture references and perfection in it that I can’t help but love it, topped off with a theme of Christmas being about togetherness, whether that’s a happy and perfect kind of togetherness or not, which is what Christmas is for me <3

I also got a late be_compromisedpromptathon fill surprise today: Congratulations on an Excellent Kill by igrockspock (link to AO3, also here on LJ; Teen and Up; Avengers; Gen) Summary: In which Natasha discovers that Hallmark does not in fact make a greeting card for every occasion.

This has all the hilarity you’d expect from Natasha looking for, or making, greetings cards appropriate for SHIELD, but they way it’s done is a perfect blend of hilarity with FEELS. This was, again, a long comment required fic *grins*.

On a side note, I think I have four modes for commenting on creative things: 1) things I loved with things you might want to improve/think about, 2) I really, really liked it, but I don’t have time to comment much right now and/or everyone else has already said everything, 3) let me show you all the thinky thoughts you just gave me! and 4) you just destroyed my brain; inability to comment coherently. My commenting is based on the state of my brain: can I be constructive right now, can I say anything that hasn’t been thought of, I can’t help but think, and ability to think gone. A lack of long comment does not mean I didn’t love things, I feel I should point this out :)
