the genius that is Clint Barton

Time for another story (in this case 'stories') where I recall the basic plot but can't remember where I found the story or what it was called.  In this case what I'm looking for is the team being surprised that Hawkeye is just as much a genius as each of the others.  Or Hawkeye just figuring out (or Tony pointing it out) that he's a genius in his own way.  That he figures out wind and trajectories, etc. in his head in the time it takes him to notch and arrow and let fly, when it would take Bruce and Tony paper, pencil, and a few minutes to do.

Which sort of ties into my second request.  I can't remember if Clint was the central character in this story, or Tony.  (Although there may be separate stories for each of them.)  Something happens, a spell or a mental merging of some kind, and the rest of the Avengers can hear the mental stream of dialogue that goes on in Clint's (or Tony's) head during a battle.  All the calculations of distance and windspeed and angle.  All the situational awareness of where everyone is; teammates, opponants, civilians, during a battle, buildings and streets, weight and angle of damaged buildings.  And suddenly everyone realizes what said person is going through all the time, what they are "hearing" in their head, why they may be distracted at time, what the team assumed to be inattention.
