Sometimes the tiniest errors can cause the biggest problems.

Established relationship, Tony Stark/Clint Barton.  First chapter in text format, second in story format.

*** “Safety First” comes prior to this one.***

I know I should be finishing some of these other ones before posting new ones, but whatever.  There’s just waaaaay too many first chapters piling up.



Stark1:  So Clint……if you hear on the news about a building blowing up……no need to get worried, okay?

Hawkeye58:  ……………….um.  Okay…..not worried…

…why should I not be worried?

Stark1:  Cuz it’s no big deal.  Gross exaggeration.  It’s really only about HALF the building.

Hawkeye58:  Oh.  Is that all.  What the hell did you do?

Stark1:  ………..nothing.  Just a few miscalculations.  Don’t worry.  No one else was in the building.

Hawkeye58:  Yeah.  Else.  I don’t care about else.  Where were YOU?  You out now?

Stark1:  Yea.  I was there.  Out now.

Hawkeye58:  And you’re okay?  Seriously okay?  Don’t lie to me or I’ll kick your ass myself

Stark1:  Yea.  There’s um……………stuff.  Hah.  Probably would’ve been pretty funny to see.  But I think the security cameras were destroyed in the fire.

Hawkeye58:  What the hell is stuff?  What do you mean ‘stuff’?  Which building was it?

Stark1:  ……you know……stuff.  And it was one of the older labs.  Don’t think you’ve ever been there.  Don’t think you ever will now heh

Hawkeye58:  No.  I don’t know ‘stuff’.  ……but you’re okay.

Stark1:  ………..define “okay”

Hawkeye58:  Everything’s intact.  No serious breaks or burns.

Stark1:  ………………..then no.  But seriously, it’s fine.  I’m fine.

Hawkeye58:  Fuck!  No.  You cannot be not okay and fine at the same time!  Where are you?  Hospital?  Tell me you’re being taken care of.

Stark1:  Yes, yes, they’re taking care of me.  Keep trying to take my phone away, too.  Something about interference with the hospital machines.

Hawkeye58:  Fuck.  Seriously?

……I mean, is that true?  Should you not have it?  I don’t want anything to go wrong.

Stark1:  No, fuck that shit.  They already took it away for x-rays.  They’re not getting it again.

Hawkeye58:  What….how bad?  They’re taking care of you, right?  They better be taking care of you, right?

Stark1:  Yes!  I told you, they’re taking care of me.  Fucking persistent bastards.

Hawkeye58:  GOOD hospital?  ….Tony.  The FUCK kind of miscalculation does THAT?

Stark1:  …….a really really stupid one.  This is gonna go alongside you getting hit by a car on the list of things we don’t share with people.

Hawkeye58:  ………hahaha.  Fucking ass.  God damn I hate you.  Where are you?  I need to see if you’re okay, then kill you for making me worry.

Stark1:  ……..I don’t really feel much like getting killed.  Been through enough today.

Hawkeye58:  Too bad.  I decide that.  Where are you?

Stark1:  ………..if I don’t tell you, you get to decide nothing.

Hawkeye58:   I’ll find out eventually.  Don’t make me take the hard way.

Stark1:  ………….where are you right now?

Hawkeye58:  What’s that matter?  That doesn’t matter.

Stark1:  Just wondering how far away you are.

Hawkeye58:  It doesn’t matter, though.  I’m coming to see you one way or another.

Stark1:  …………….well……………….if I tell you, will you make them let me go home tonight?

Hawkeye58:  ……I’ll see what I can do.  Kind of depends how bad you are.  If it’s bad burns you need to be monitored.

Stark1:  ……………………………..I’ll be home with you.

Hawkeye58:  Tony……outside of field dressing wounds I don’t really…….I’ll see what I can do.  Jarvis can help, right?

Stark1:  It’s okay.  It’s fine.  I’ll behave.  But will you stay with me?

Hawkeye58:  Did that blast damage your head?  Of course I’m gonna stay with you.  That’s not even up for debate.

Stark1:  Heh.  Well, they said there was no real damage to my head, so no.  Good.  Thanks.

Hawkeye58:   Yeah good…….so.  Really.  How bad is it.

Stark1:  Uh……..well, the blast sorta threw me through a window.

Hawkeye58:  …….stitches?

Stark1:  ………amongst other things.

Hawkeye58:  List the breaks and fractures.

Stark1:  …………….do I have to?

Hawkeye58:  No.  But then you set the standard.

Stark1:  Goddammit.

……collar bone.  Coupla ribs.  Sprained wrist.  Burns.  There.  Happy?

Hawkeye58:  No.  Well.  Glad you told me……even if it was just so I wouldn’t be able to keep crap from you.  But not glad you’re hurt.  No internal bleeding?

Stark1:  Don’t think so.  No one seems to be flipping out, anyway.

Hawkeye58:  Okay.  Okay good.

…..sorry.  I just.  Yeah.  And you’re okay?

Stark1:  …yea.  I mean…..not in great shape, obviously heh.  But I’m okay.

Hawkeye58:  Okay.  Fuck, Tony……you’re not allowed to get mad when I worry about you doing stuff.

Stark1:  What?  Why?

Hawkeye58:  Because you blew yourself up!

Stark1:  I did not!  I blew up a BUILDING.

Hawkeye58:  And then said building kicked your ass.

Stark1:  ……hey.

Hawkeye58:  Well, it did.  I can’t even avenge you or whatever.  It’s a building.  It won’t care.

Stark1:  …..it’s also pretty much decimated.

Hawkeye58:  I could decimate the other half but I’m pretty sure I’LL get in trouble for it.

Stark1:  Haha yea probably.

……..my shoulder’s getting REALLY purple.

Hawkeye58:  Yeah.  Not surprising.  Have someone check it, though.

*few minutes later*

Stark1:  Okay, that plan sucked.  Now they wanna take me for a CAT scan and they’re taking my phone away again.

Hawkeye58:  What?  It’s that bad?  Where are you?  You never said.  What do they think is wrong?

Stark1:  Nothing.  Don’t think anything.  Just wanna take a look at it.

Hawkeye58:  Okay…..well.  Let them look.  Why aren’t you telling me where you are?

Stark1:  Cuz I don’t want you coming down and freaking out.  Dammit.  Fine.  It’s that one…..fuck.  Can’t remember the name.  Just downtown from Stark Tower.

Hawkeye58:  Shut up.  I don’t freak out.  Okay.  How long did they say they wanted to keep you?  When are they doing the scan?

Stark1:  Right now.  Immediately.  Fucking nurse trying to pry the phone out of my hands.

Hawkeye58:  Ha.  Well.  You do that.  I gotta catch a flight.

Stark1:  Clint.  Hurry?

Hawkeye58:  Am.  I am.  You okay?  Tell them.  You tell them if they do anything unnecessary no one will be happy.  I love you, okay?

Stark1:  I love you too.

    GAH! why so many first chapters!?!?! all so good, and i read them and then search through the archives for the next chapter and it’s never there!! 😦 but still, keep up the good work, can’t wait to read more

  3. Actually, take another look. The only ones that are still missing second chapters are “Miscalculations”, “Someplace in Between”, “Porn”, and “Repression”. They’ve all been making their way up here. I’m working on both “Someplace in Between” and “Porn” right now, so hopefully they’ll be up soon.^^

      you’re right, i just (somehow) managed to read two of them in a row “Miscalculations” and “Repression” and was feeling impatient. sorry if i sounded angry, i didn’t mean to be 🙂

      • LOL it’s no problem. I posted a lot of first chapters b/c seriously? There are a LOT of stories piling up. But I’m trying to get them done as fast as I can. I have a job, and I’m trying once again to get back into acting, so I’ve been pretty busy lately. But I try to write a bit every day.^^

        wow – that is pretty intense (good for you on the acting, though) your dedication is much appreciated, and i have to say, the text fics are my favourite – its just they they (by their very nature) are always left off right in the middle of something 😛

    Oh, Tony, stop worrying Clint. You know he’s possessive and such.

    This is awesome! Tony you goofball.
    I wonder just how far Clint really would go to keep Tony company in the hospital, like if he was in another country, would he hop on a plane against orders?

    Oh, man these two. First Clint who worried Tony and now it’s the opposite. I hope everything is okay, I’m reading the second chapter now ^^
