Friday Fics Fix - Magical Shenanigans With Tony and Loki


'“My guess is it’s got something to do with serotonin,” he says.

“Or magic,” Loki points out.

“Don’t spoil my fun, dear.”'

Let's start 2022 as we mean to go on: 

...with Gay superhero fanfiction. 😅😘

This is FrostIron. Because I am trash, and I don't care.

I just love Tony and Loki together *shrugs* - it weirdly works.

(Fandom notes: 

FrostIron is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Iron Man, aka Tony Stark, and Loki, from the MCU (Marvel movies.))

So the whole *waves hands vaguely* deal with this fic is that Tony and Loki have been linked mentally and emotionally in a sort-of-soul-bond type-deal-y.

(My eloquence has clearly only increased in the first few days of 2022 😅)

Because magical shenanigans, here caused by Amora, aka Enchantress. 

She's not currently in the MCU, but she serves as a convenient magic-shenanigans-based villain for fanfiction writers to lift from the comics. Not least 'cos she's Asgardian, so you can pull Loki in pretty easy.

This is a novel-length fic - love the dedication! - which kept me reading to the end.

It also made me smile, more than once, which is always good.

Is there angst?

Well, this is me rec'ing it, so yes.

There's a butt-tonne of angst and hurt/comfort, and emotions every-goddamn-where.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) in a beat-up Iron Man suit with a fire and emergency cars in the background: I think I did okay!

(Fandom notes: Angst and Hurt/Comfort (H/C) are specific genres of fanfiction.

Angst is, well... angsty.

Hurt/Comfort involves one or more of the characters being hurt, and others comforting them.

It's all v. straight-forward really.)

I think at one point the other characters even refer to Loki as the poster-child for Depression when he can't muster the energy to get out of bed. Which... OK, I laughed. 

But I've dealt with Depression for about 8 or 9 years now, so I get to laugh - these are the rules. *nods sagely*

Honestly, the mental health issues were dealt with in a gallows-humour kinda way that I really appreciated, but it won't be everyone's cup of tea - so be aware of that.

Overall, this is just a fun, angsty, entertaining, slightly bat-poop, solid piece of fanfiction.

And who doesn't want that? 😉

A few Content Warnings, dearest nerdlets:

- illness and injury

- general violence

- torture

- blood

- murder

- refs. to war and genocide

- mental health problems, including PTSD and Depression symptoms

- pseudo/magical-racism

- imprisonment

- abduction

- Homophobia/Queerphobia

...I think that's everything, but as always, I might've forgotten something, so be careful dearest nerdlets!

- Oh, and there are probably MCU SPOILERS (if anyone knows what counts as MCU SPOILERS these days.)

This week's fic, then, is:

  1. What a cool pairing! I've never considered them together, but I think Tony's snark mixed with Loki's could make for a really entertaining relationship.

    1. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!


      ...I am suitably entertained by FrostIron hijinks.

      And - random fact - Robert Downey Jr once tweeted some NSFW FrostIron fan art with the advice to never Google yourself. Lol. <3
