Friday Fics Fix - Any Port (Cabin) In A Storm

'“So let me see if I’ve got this straight. You think a witch has lured us here to her cabin so she can fatten us up with fast food, then kill us and eat us for Sunday brunch?”

Sam blinks. “Yes?”'

Not entirely sure what I just read...

But then, reading the author's note... they're not entirely sure what they just wrote either - so at least we're all on the same page!

This is a The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) SamBucky fic. Because this is my blog, and I choose the fics. 😎😅

(Fandom notes: SamBucky is the name of a sexual and/or romantic relationship between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes from the MCU (Marvel movies etc.))

This fic opens with Sam and Bucky staggering away from where a mission has gone way wrong.

Then they find a magic hut in the middle of woods, because why not?

And this is kind of where this fic goes from there:

Fast food! Romance novels! Convenient first aid kits! That trope where one partner (Sam) tends to the other (Bucky)'s wounds!

As the summary for this fic says: 'Baba Yaga ships it.'

(Fandom notes: a fic summary is the description that most fanfiction sites have in some way or other to tempt readers to click the fic - a little like the blurb on a book.

Trope - halfway between a theme and a stereotype.

Ships it - a ship is a sexual and/or romantic relationship between two or more characters. Shipping something means to support these characters being in a relationship together... sometimes to an extreme degree.

Baba Yaga is a mythical Slavic witch/trio of witches. This isn't really related to fandom, but I figured some people would want to know!)

A quick not-so-good point (with mild SPOILERS for this fic) from this one:

It makes use of fairytale kissing (well, almost.) Y'know, the type of kissing a la Sleeping Beauty or Snow White which is technically a form of sexual assault? We get close to that here.

I figured you deserved a heads-up, since I know this particular trope is a deal-breaker for a lot of people.

Some Content Warnings, then:

- blood

- injury

- extreme cold and possible hypothermia

- fairytale kiss (see above)

- sexy-times

This week's fic, then, is:

Baba Yaga's Love Shack by MercuryInRetro

Do you like some randomness every now and then?

Is fairytale kissing a dealbreaker for you?
