I’m looking for a story, possibly writing on the Avenger kink meme, in which someone attacks Tony.
The assassin is clever though and somehow convinces the team (except Coulson) that it was Clint who tried to kill Tony and they lock Clint up.
Clint is proved innocent shortly thereafter, but he is extremely hurt by what happened and quits both SHIELD and the Avengers.
He ends up, possibly with Fury’s help, taking a job as a sheriff in a small town and the locals basically adopt him.
Coulson follows and I think at one point is hurt by a monster and he and Clint end up together.
Thor, who wasn’t on Earth when Clint was locked up, turns to find the archer has left and is furious at what happened and leads the team to the town to check Clint is okay and ask him to come back (he doesn’t, but agrees to keep in touch).
I think part of the reason why he leaves is that each of the team had a floor in Avengers tower, but Tony sanitised Clint’s whole floor and destroyed everything in it, including the only photo he had of his family; I remember him promising Coulson he’d find a way to make it up to Clint but Coulson just looking at him because they both knew there was no fixing it.
