Joss Whedon for The Avengers DVD commentary:
Get ready for Chris Evans’ jaw. The greatest jaw in the film. Get ready. Here it comes… Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah! That’s right! That’s a hero!

Once upon a time, I wrote a kink meme fill for Steve/Nat with Clint being a good bro. Reena_Jenkins just did a podfic for it, and the podfic is amazing. You should have yourself a listen.
Steve/Nat and Bucky/Clint are both featured.
All credit for this goes to bootycap.
She inspired me to add the dancing arms and legs.
Was it the only answer to the situation, kissing him? No, of course not, there were a dozen ways to throw those goons off the track. Testing Steve was just too tempting an opportunity to pass up.
If he pretended indifference toward her, that would tell her something. If he was really indifferent, that would tell her something else.
Instead, he barely sways toward her — one hand moves to her hip, but he stills it there. She can feel his control in the light, steady pressure of his palm flexed against her. And yet, after that first shocked moment, he kisses her without hesitation. Gentle, tender, almost as if he means it.
And so, after she breaks away, she says — dryly, because she’s the Black Widow and her voice betrays nothing — “You still uncomfortable?”
He almost matches her in self-possession. No doubt it’s a skill he was forced to learn: with that super-strength, he can’t be careless, not ever. But: “That’s not exactly the word I would use,” he says, not even trying to hide the roughness in his words.
It’s an admission. She put him off-balance, took the upper hand. She should feel a little stronger now.
Instead she feels like she’s danced up to a bonfire, and the warmth of it still tingles the length of her as she very precisely steps away, and away, and away.
