Yes, Clint is avoiding the other Avengers. No, he does not want to go back to New York. But then again, he didn't exactly want to be kidnapped by the Winter Soldier either. Really, he just wants to go back to bed.
Sara_Holmes' writing will grip you by the heart and refuse to let you go. This fic is a classic slowburn - you know where it'll go but not how it'll get there and it unravels scene by scene, taking its time on every word to show you what it takes for Clint Barton and Bucky Barnes to recover.
Great - Clint is incredibly well narrated - bitter, traumatized and so very human, clawing his way back to caring about the world.
