Since the fall of SHIELD, Melinda has been avoiding Natasha. Natasha’s given her time, but enough is enough. Unfortunately, the conversation doesn’t go as she would’ve liked it to.

This was my gift for Rare Pair Fest. The author has a fantastic Melinda May voice and the fic captures something that feels very true to these two women. I like that it’s angsty but with an undercurrent of hopefulness.
