Natasha: We have a very strong bond. I knew we at least had a platonic love. The romantic love we’re still trying to figure out.
Clint: Bunch of assholes.
Natasha: I think anyone who is trying to limit the freedom of others is severely delusional.
Clint: You mean like not kill someone if I had orders to? Uhh… That’s tough. I’m kinda still on thin ice as far as ‘straying from what the mission actually states’ goes, so I don’t go out of my way to just not kill people when I’m meant to. But I mean, this was a complicated case of events, and I suppose if I came across something like it again, then I might consider saving my target instead of killing them, yeah.
Natasha: Why would I be upset that he did that? He dragged me out of a horrible situation. I’d be happy that he pulled someone else out as well.
Clint: I try to remember that there’s always gonna be someone who cares about my wellbeing… Even if they’re almost a perfect stranger to me, there’s someone out there who would care if I was gone. It also helps to realize that every single problem I have in my life - no matter how big or horrible or daunting - it can be fixed. Every damn one. Hang in there, you’re gonna be okay.
Natasha: I remember what I’m fighting for. I think about how I’m helping people now and how I need to even out with all the horrible things I’ve done. Don’t give up, we believe in you. It gets better.
Disaster. Absolutely awful. We didn’t work well together at all, I thought Fury was gonna kill me, I was sure that bringing her over from Russia was a mistake… Obviously, things got better.
A rough five month solo mission that made me miss my best friend a little more than I thought I would.
Clint: Smarter, hopefully.
Natasha: Clint thinks he can beat me in hand to hand when he’s drunk. He still loses every time.
Clint: Well it’s a miracle if she can manage to get drunk anyway… My favorite is when she gets so wasted that she seemingly forgets all English and starts yelling in Russian.
Natasha: Not dying.
Clint: Watching Loki get his ass sent back to Asgard.
Clint: I looked up to my brother a lot.
Natasha: When I was young? The Winter Soldier. He trained me.
