Burn everything you love then burn the
follow snows, occasionally get to see untagged crunchy in-progress sketchy stuff
um, wheee? Wheeeeeeeeeee? :D
How much of his own merch does Clint actually wear, anyway?
That’s all I want to know
All the merch
I actually have this elaborate head-canon where the only reason Clint’s stuff has the purple-and-bullseye theme is that people keep giving him this shit. He doesn’t buy it on his own; he’s not that self aware, and he hates spending money on himself.
But, like, his first Christmas with the Avengers, Pietro decided to wind him up by giving him some kind of atrocious purple underwear or something, in a setting where he’d have to unwrap them in front of people. And Clint spoiled the joke by just being like “Hey, thanks man, I needed some of these, getting tired of going commando” and basically being too shameless to embarrass.
So it became this thing, which the other Avengers got in on, of giving Clint obnoxiously purple stuff. It took on a life of its own, so it kept up even when he wasn’t being Hawkeye. Any time an Avenger sees something in that particular family of violent purple, it’s like Pavlovian, yes, Clint must have this. Especially if it’s got a bullseye and/or ‘H’ on it, because something, eventually, has to reach some kind of tackiness event horizon even for him, except it never does.
And at some point, somebody finally asked Clint if he minded the endless amount of ugly purple ‘gag’ gifts.
And Clint said, fuck no, because a) if he cared about the color he wouldn’t dress head to toe in the stuff and b) 90% of this stuff is way nicer than anything he would ever buy for himself, and people are just giving it to him. Who cares about the color scheme—why would he ever want it to stop?
