Friday Fics Fix - Blasting Off Again!

'"Only I've been looking back towards where the front door is and it's not there," Brock said.

"What?!" Ash and Misty yelped.

"Why didn't you tell us?!" Misty cried.'

I was a 90s kid (and I do mean 'kid,' I was v. smol!) so inevitably I watched the hell out of the original Pokémon TV series.

It was weird, random, probably a little bit cliché... and pretty much every kid watched it!

I loved Team Rocket!

While technically, they were the bad guys, they were too incompetent and generally soft-hearted to ever be a 'real' threat.

And they were funny, and had AMAZING hair! 😂

Plus, Jessie looked mighty handsome in a tuxedo, and James looked simply beautiful in a dress.

(...Sometimes I wonder how I managed to avoid admitting I'm Queer until 3 years ago... 😅)

Jessie and James dancing underwater; Jessie is wearing a masculine suit, and James is wearing a pink dress. A red 'R' descends behind them as Jessie holds James aloft.
You might be cool - but are you Jessie and James defying gender roles while dancing UNDER WATER cool? 😎 #QueerGoals

So this week's recommended fic is a fun and totally random Pokémon adventure.

It involves a haunted house, the original 3 Pokémon trainers (Brock, Misty, Ash,) and Team Rocket.

It's also spoopy! James gets possessed and everything!

But it does handle a couple of heavy issues (albeit lightly.)

So be aware that this fic discusses suicide, attempted suicide (...sort of, paranormal do-dahs were involved,) violence, and abuse.

This week's fic, then, is:

A Dangerous Mind by LuckyLadybug

  1. I know nothing about Pokémon besides the fact that my dog looks like rattata and so that’s one of our nicknames for her, lol.

    1. Ha, fair enough! As long as she's not purple! ;) <3

  2. I loved the original Pokemon too. Have you seen the new movie?

    1. You mean the Detective Pikachu one? No, I haven't - it looks really fun though! :)
