Fanfiction Reading Challenge 2019 Update #1




I figured I’d do an update for the 2019 Fanfiction Reading Challenge!

I originally planned on writing and posting this update waaaayyy before now - but life, the universe, and everything got in the goddamned way! Lol.

This challenge is hosted by the lovely Carrie @ Cat on the Bookshelf, and I picked option 2 – which is a list of types of fics.

Fanfic Source: Read a fanfic from a different archive/source


Status: Pending

Explanation: OK, I have two major sources for Fanfiction, and I haven’t read outside them yet, so this one is still pending.



Read fanfics from more than 1 or 2 fandoms


Status: Filled

Explanation: I have no self-control when it comes to fanfiction.

I’ve read fics from the following fandoms so far this year: MCU, Arrowverse, Umbrella Academy, Sherlock, Danny Phantom, Harry Potter Universe, Haven… and probably a lot more.

And that’s without splitting things like the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) into their individual fics.

A fic that is less than 10,000 words


Status: filled

Explanation: most of the fics I read are less than 10,000 words. I like short fics dammit!



A fic that is more than 50,000 words


Status: Filled

Explanation: I love it when fic writers take things really seriously!



A gen fic


Status: Filled

Explanation: You’d be surprised how many fics are Gen. There can be bloody murder everywhere but as long as there’s no sexy-times, we’re golden! ;)



Crossover


Status: Filled

Explanation: Even outside crossovers inside universes (if that makes even the least bit of sense,) there’s a lot of crossovers in fanfiction.

I have a pretty sound theory that at some point, every fandom ever has been crossed over with Harry Potter!




Moriarty from BBC Sherlock: Aren't normal people adorable?

An abandoned fic


Status: Pending

Explanation: I haven’t done this yet. I like completed fics dammit!



Fairy tale


Status: Pending



Slash or Femslash


Status: Filled several times over.

Explanation: Dude, I will forever read M/M and F/F, ok?

All the Gay, dearest nerdlets. All the Gay.

Fanfic starring your OTP


Status: Filled

Explanation: I actually have many, many OTPs, and have def. read about a few of them so far this year!



Canon-compliant fic


Status: Filled

Explanation: I present for the court's viewing, a Jennifer's Body-compliant fic. I've probably read more too, but this was the one that came to mind.


Genderbending Challenge fic


Status: Pending



5+ year old fic


Status: Pending

Explanation: I might have... I don't know. I'm so organised! Lol.



Dr Who (Jodie Whittaker): No idea.
Via Giphy



< 1 year old fic


Status: Filled

Explanation: Dude, most fanfic archives show newest first. And some fandoms I read from are so new they still got the wrappers on!



Time travel fic


Status: Filled

Explanation: Thank you Umbrella Academy and your canonic time travel!



Enemies to Lovers


Status: Filled

Explanation: All the Drarry. And the FrostIron. And probably some other stuff too.

Script fic


Status: Pending


Unusual character relationships


Status: Filled

Explanation: I’ma assume that friendships count here, and I present Spidey & Loki’s friendship as tribute!



Recursive fanfiction


Status: Who knows?

Explanation: ...I’m still trying to figure out what this actually means! šŸ˜…



Smut/Lemon


Status: Filled

Explanation: It’s fanfiction.




Dan Howells talking about shipping: RUN. Run and never get involved in this.
Via Giphy



Next gen fic


Status: Pending



Coffee Shop AU


Status: Pending

Explanation: I somehow don’t seem to have read Coffee Shop AU this year yet?!

Is the fabric of reality & fandom as we know it going to crumble?!

This might be a mistake, I’ll have to double-check!


Period fic


Status: Filled

Explanation: Thank you, once again, Umbrella Academy!



Evil!Hero OR Good!Villain


Status: Unknown

Explanation: Honestly, I’m not sure what counts here b/c I tend to favour moral grey areas.
