Friday Fics Fix - They Didn't Teach Us This At the Academy

"I swear, all the doors in this damn house are going to be destroyed by the end of tonight," Diego muttered.

Yes, we are Umbrella Academy-ing again dearest nerdlets!

(Not least because it's a safe place to hide from Endgame spoilers! Lol.)

And just to be extra-nice to ya, it's a long fic!

Like, 'over 200 pages on my Kobo'-type long!

I don't tend to read all that many long fics, because:

a) attention span and-

b) not many people are capable of writing them to a standard I can stick with for more than 20-50 pages!


I also don't tend to read too many fics with original (i.e. non-fandom-based) characters in them - but this one is an exception to that too!

And in all fairness to this fic - it manages to keep the balance right!

The original characters are fleshed-out enough to be believable, but not so in-your-face that they overshadow who we all came here to read about!

Before you ask - yes, this fic is centred on my Queen, Klaus Hargreeves.

It also has a sh**-tonne of plot and sibling interactions and all that fun stuff though! 😀

Also, there's some heavy stuff in this fic, so be aware of the following, dearest nerdlets:

- substance abuse and addiction (inc. GRAPHIC drug use)
- abduction
- torture (inc. sexual elements)
- mental health problems (inc. graphic PTSD flashbacks)
- abusive relationships (mental, physical, sexual)
- attempted suicide
- grief
- child abuse (mental, physical)
- modern slavery (non-sexual)
- general violence
- murder
- war/military service
- casual homophobia
- Coming Out
- family issues

...Once again, everything involving The Umbrella Academy involves 'family issues.' 😅

There's also a butt-tonne of SPOILERS for the series, so don't say I didn't warn ya!

This one had that page-turning thing that we, as readers, are eternally on the search for.

And to have that in fanfiction is just f**king awesome! 😎

This week's fic, then, is:

All Four You by LiviJoyann

Friday Fics Fix is taking a break next week, and will be back on 17th May 2019
