Just in case fanfic writers needed any more inspiration to shack this pair up, at this year's Dragon Con two Avengers cosplayers, Mike and Tracy, got engaged as Hawkeye and Black Widow respectively.

As you can see in the gallery, what starts out as a regular cosplay photoshoot gets real when Hawkeye drops to one knee and, instead of pouting and firing another arrow, asks the question instead.

To which Black Widow says yes. Before, presumably, jumping off a balcony shooting 17 bad guys on the way down.
