I've told you before, my dearest nerdlets, about the awesomeness that is the 'dumpster brothers' meme/trope/sub-fandom/whatever!
But, in case you need some refreshment: Clint Barton (Hawkeye) and Matt Murdock (Daredevil) combine their odd habit of ending up in dumpsters to become friends!
(Yes, it's usually as random as it sounds!)
*Don't answer that.
Unfortunately, I have yet to find the perfect Dumpster Bros fic - this one features an alley with a dumpster, but they're not actually in the dumpster! (Drat!)
Still, this is pretty cool, and - most importantly - allows Clint Barton to be deaf.
Yes, the Hawkeye of the comics is deaf, and uses hearing-aids.
And Marvel have point-blank erased that from the films. Which is a sh**ty decision, like the decision to erase Loki's pansexuality and gender-queer identity (both of which are present in the comics.)
Basically, much as I love the MCU (Marvel movies,) white-washing ain't its only problem. #JustSaying
But because fanfiction is going to save the freaking world (and I firmly believe that my nerdlets!) many fics include Clint's deafness.
This fic also features Clint having terrible luck. I'm not going to say I can relate... but I may be thinking it. Lol! 😅
So, for a fun and fairly inclusive fic, check out:

Did you know (without me telling you - 'cos I mention it a lot! Lol,) that Clint Barton is deaf in the comics?
I'll be back with more fanfiction next week, my nerdlets.
