Friday Fics Fix - Told You I Was Trash

Something you may or may not be aware of is that there are a number of fics in which Clint Barton (Hawkeye) and Matt Murdock (Daredevil) meet in a dumpster.

I f**k you not. This is a thing. A fandom thing. And it rocks.

It's gotten to the point where they're now referred to as 'Dumpster Buddies' or 'Dumpster Bros.' #TrueStory.

Why? Well because as any slightly-wacky Marvel fan will tell you, Hawkeye being in a dumpster is one of the most famous panel-sequences in modern comics.

Also, these two are some of the only canonically disabled heroes in comics. Matt is blind. Clint is deaf. They are both awesome!

And Daredevil apparently spends enough time in dumpsters to make this whole trope a realistic prospect *shrugs*

So, I'm going to cut to the chase*, and give you a Clint 'n' Matt dumpster fic that made me giggle a lot.

*Me? Forget to write a fanfiction post and then have to rush to do it on Thursday evening, in between doing other stuff? I don't know where you get your ideas sometimes, I really don't! *shifty glances* Moving on...

This week's fic is:

    1. Ha, again, I don't know what you could possibly be talking about... ;)

  2. I didn't know there was a deaf superhero. Only seen Daredevil. What a combo with the two!

    1. Unfortunately Hawkeye's disability is not present in the films. The comics, however, have no issue with accepting that he's deaf.
