Art Post for #girlavenger, or or How Natasha Trended on Twitter and Saved the World  
I signed up to do art for emmypenny's fic at heroinebigbang based purely on its title and I was not disappointed! I've had so much fun with this story! #girlavenger is a fantastic fic full of the many ways in which women can be wonderful and full of Natasha being inspiring and every. single. time. another draft landed in my inbox fangirlish noises of excitement were made.

I made cover art with the tweets from the fic in the background, and then another cover that's a Skottie Young variant, because I couldn't resist. Then I did the twitter homepage of one of the main twitter folks and a Girl Avenger meme. Finally, laurajade221b made me commit art. Because during our geek road trip this week I said that if I could Art I would love to do a twitter bird on a Skottie Young style Natasha's head, and she said, "You must do this thing!" So I did :)

I gotta admit, it was the most fun fic I'd read in a while. It also made me realize what a sad lack of Natasha-focused fics there are. ;)
inkvoices: avengers:natashainkvoices on August 31st, 2013 07:06 pm (UTC)
They're out there! But often with relationship plots or as part of ensemble pieces. I go hunting for marvelous ladies fic sometimes, because yes, more please :)

Some recs of fics focussed on Natasha, hmm, let's see... From my mess of bookmarks here's a bunch tagged with Natasha:

amicitia - Natasha and Pepper fight crime
i have seen nearly every city - Buffy (as in the vampire slayer) and Natasha friendship fic
Five Times An Avenger Accidentally Woke Natasha Up
No Comment - Natasha, the media, and power
there are many names in history (and all of them are ours) - Natasha is Russia
Best Kept Secret - Natasha and Tony friendship fic
To Coerce with Force - someone tries to use Natalie Rushman against Stark Industries
RED - 'these are not all lies'
as a badge of a beating heart - Natasha and clothes
the words are all escaping - Natasha and fiction
And There Are Deserts Still - Natasha and identity
