Summary: So this is how you fall into decisions that shape the rest of your life - you hear a cheeky little bastard snarking at you over comms, and somehow decide that trusting them is a good idea. (The fact that it turns out to be one has no bearing on the matter.) Or, the story of how Nick met Natasha and S.H.I.E.L.D. shaped itself around them.
Notes: Please be aware that I have mixed and meshed and twisted Marvel 'verses together so much that I don't even know what's which anymore. This has elements of MCU and Agents of SHIELD and Marvel 616, I have played very fast and loose with ages, and incorporated a lot of different canons into this story. I would like to ask you to suspend disbelief and let yourself be carried along for the adventure. Enormous thanks are due to Lanyon, for betaing this story and checking my comics canon and being so very encouraging and enthusiastic about it. <3 Also, many thanks to RosaLui who took the time to answer my Japanese questions and correct my abysmal vocabulary. You are a star, bb. <3 And, as always, all my love to CinnamonAnna and 17Pansies for being the best and listening to me as I rambled on and on about this story. I don't know what I'd do without you, darlings. <3
