clint barton/natasha romanoff pacific rim au [for sebastiansthanhs]
when clint barton, an experienced but cocky jaeger pilot loses his co-pilot (his brother, barney) in what was supposed to be a routine patrol mission, he is paired with natasha romanoff, a veteran russian pilot in her own right with one of the most impressive track records in the history of the PPDC. theoretically, his recklessness and her cold methodical approach shouldn’t work, but time is running out as what is left of the PPDC converge in the hong kong shatterdome to prepare for a final showdown. they must win the battle with the demons of their pasts first, as well as their misgivings for each other, before they can even stand a chance to win the war.
"Alex MacLean is used to seeing the world from up high. The photographer is also a licensed pilot, and he’s spent years "sticking his camera out the cockpit" of a small Cessna 182, snapping what he sees below."
my favourite part was honestly natasha saying, “Shall we play a game” and then awkwardly explaining her own joke
