Friday Fics Fix - Murder House Party!

“You guys seem really chill about all this,” observed Ben. “By this point most people are running around screaming.”

“Occupational hazard,” said Klaus.

“I’ve lost a lot of blood,” said Diego. “I’m just accepting everything at face value right now.”

If there's one thing that Netflix has got me obsessed with as much as Umbrella Academy, it's American Horror Story.

(Only on season 2 #NoSpoilersPlease!)

So when I came across an Umbrella Academy fic set in an American Horror Story: Murder House (season 1) style AU?!

I am SO there!

(Fangirling notes: AU = Alternate Universe)

In this fic the Hargreeves siblings are not siblings - not even in the adopted sense - so that they can get up to all sorts of hanky-panky shenanigans!

(For people weirded out by this - at least the fic author v. carefully made them NOT related before getting them to flirt and smooch - something that... *SPOILERS* not really the case in the actual series!)

In case you're wondering, btw, the hanky-panky shenanigans are a bunch of M/M and M/M/M, and a small, PG-level, amount of M/F.

This doesn't have the characters from American Horror Story as such, instead using the Umbrella Academy characters to create similar vibes.

Five is also a vampire in this... because why tf not, I guess? 😉

Couple of warnings for this one, given the whole horror-theme, guys:

- violence
- gore
- torture
- suicide
- cult
- murder
- serial murder
- medical experimentation
- abusive relationship
- child murder
- murderers who are children
- organised crime
- kidnapping
- assassins

If you can think of a horror trope, it's probably in there - just like with the American Horror Story series, really.

Also some adult humour and some swearing, but if you can handle all that other stuff, then you probably don't care!

This week's fic rec, then, is:

  1. My sister loves AHS. I’ve watched a few episodes with her, but overall horror is not really my thing because I scare very easily.

    1. Ha, fair enough! I get freaked out by horror sometimes too, but I do love it! :)
