the world saved by aceofcards. — basically a continuation of where the comic left off where america and kate are dating. it’s kinda short but it includes kate and america going on a date to see the stars so yeah i loved it
Pizza is better than people but that’s not exactly saying much by sariane. — kate, america and the rest of the young avengers (from the gillen/mckelvie run) run a pizza place and are queer dorks all around. it’s short but really sweet and it’s great if you’re tired of coffee shop AUs but don’t wanna let go of the feeling
every time, i fell by defcoutwo. — this is more of a series of one-shots that somehow are still a complete story idk. america and kate are sort-of dating but america always has to leave bc that’s what she does. the character interpretations are on point imo it’s rly good
hey heart, on the run again by stitchingatthecircuitboard. — america visits kate when she’s solving crimes in LA and kate works through her sexual identity crisis that started after the end of young avengers. longer than the previous ones…i should’ve probably included wordcounts or something
Stars and Gripes by sariane. — this is just america and kate hanging out and it’s perfect and i love it omg. they go to night clubs and play mario kart and prank call captain america and it’s funny and amazing. also this one’s the only one i found that’s from america’s point of view so that’s nice

stop what ur doing and imagine kate inviting america over and being all mysterious about it and she sits america down facing a doorway covered with a sheet and america is really confused but then music starts playing and comes out from behind the sheet wearing a short strapless purple sequined dress holding a hairbrush and starts jumping around lip syncing to the music and america just starts laughing and kate eventually pulls america out of the chair and they dance around like utter idiots until they’re too tired and just fall over on a couch laughing and looking at each other like lovesick dorks

Kate: You’re Clint Barton. What are you talking about?
Clint: I—why are you yelling at me? The bad guys are—
Kate: You’re one of the good guys! So go be a good guy! You know what—? This thing you’re about to do? This running away thing? It’s everything about you that sucks. Merry Christmas, jerk.
This series is always very shrewd in its use of Kate Bishop, even when she isn’t necessarily the star of the show. For instance, in this issue, she only shows up for one scene, only a couple of pages. And yet, the impact she makes in those pages is what the story hinges on. This issue would be vastly different without her.
Back in issue #02, Clint told Kate that he saw himself in her. But in many ways, the audience has learned that Kate is much more than that. Her twists on the Hawkeye legacy are entirely her own, and by being her own person she forges her own way and helps Clint achieve more than he could on his own. In this issue, Clint hits his lowest point. He’s hopeless and defeated. Kate doesn’t coddle him. She doesn’t indulge his weakness. Rather, she demands that he pick himself back up and face the challenges in front of him. She is utterly stubborn in her belief in him. And stubbornness is a quintessentially Hawkeye trait.
Running away, now that’s not a very Hawkeye thing to do. It is, in fact, an abandonment of the confidence, blind courage, and almost stupid resilience that Clint usually displays. So what Kate is doing is reminding Clint of who he actually is. He’s Clint Barton, he’s a good guy—even when he can’t see that for himself. She doesn’t even need to wait and see if he’ll take her advice. She knows him well enough, and has enough faith in him, to know he will.
From Hawkeye Volume 4 #06 (Matt Fraction & David Aja)
