Headcanons about Nat's relationship with each Avenger? Or maybe with the people who she doesn't interact with on screen much. Peggy, Wanda, Sam, Rhodey, esp.
not an au but here we go:
- Margaret Carter had abandoned retirement to recruit the Black Widow; Natalia would never forget the naivete of trusting a Black Widow so completely-
“Is there any name you would prefer on your passport?”
Natalia had kept silent till then - her mind reeled with the logistics of it, to grant asylum to a Soviet killer-
The elderly lady had nodded. The wrinkles around her mouth fought her poise - she made Natalia feel younger than her nineteen years.
Two days later she had helped Natalia evacuate her former recon apartment. It had involved the presentation of a new passport. Natalia Romanova’s ticket out of hell.
13 years later Sharon asked her to be at Margaret Carter’s funeral. Natalia - no, Natasha - had nodded.
She never showed up. She spent an hour burning a passport, watching the name Carter, Natasha Margaret licked to nothing by the lighter flame.
