Friday Fics Fix - Comfort Blanket Time

What to do when the world is going to hell in a handbasket and I have a cold? Read fanfiction of course!

Fanfiction will save us. Somehow it must.

(You doubt me, but we didn't think Trump would be president and Teen Vogue (US) would be leading the resistance a year ago - yet here we are, fy nghariadiau, here we are! *cue slightly hysterical laughter*)

(I may be slightly feverish - so this is gonna be fun!)

So, as I mentioned, I have a cold that I'm pretending hoping isn't actually flu in disguise.

When I'm not feeling well, I tend to read sick fics - preferably of the fluffy, as opposed to the angsty, kind.

(Fangirling notes:

Sick fics are about one character being ill - whether serious or just a bug - and another character looking after them.

They are almost always fluffy, sometimes include angst where the character is seriously ill, and often involve romance.

Basically, they're complete wish-fulfilment with very little brain cells involved - which makes them perfect comfort-reading.)

So this week I give you some self-indulgent sick-fic Johnlock.

(Fangirling notes: Johnlock is a John Watson and Sherlock (from BBC Sherlock) romantic and/or sexual relationship.)

There's some iffy grammar/spelling, but *shrugs*, it's fanfiction, it does have a tendency to go a bit skew-whiff.

(I don't think I've used the phrase 'skew-whiff' in years - I definitely need to take a nap or something...)

This week's fic then is:

Lovesick by HelldiverOfLykos, poechild

Enjoy! And I'll be back next week with more fanfiction!
