Friday Fics Fix - It's SamBucky Time!

'“Like deja-vu?” Sam asks, confusion evident in his voice.

“Yeah but for the whole day.” They’re silent for a moment, Sam looking like he doesn’t know what to say, so Bucky tries again. “Like we’re in a time loop,” he says finally.'

Title: Fics Fix! Background: purple with white lightning bolt shape

You can find time-loop fics for pretty much any fandom, and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) is no exception.

Though it isn't so much of a thing for TFATWS as it is for, say... the horror film Ready or Not. Where the fandom has decided that time loops will both be a thing, and be the primary premise of 80% of the fics available. 

...Lol. I love fandom.

(If you're not sure what a time loop is, check out the TV Tropes page here.)

What I loved about this particular time loop fic was the direction it decided to take things.

How Bucky coped with the loop, and what caused the loop to resolve, was sweet and refreshing - and you gotta love that.

It was also quite well written - and you know the rules, dearest nerdlets: if the fic's well-written, I gotta rec it! 😅

And yes, this is SamBucky.

Because I am trash.

Complete and utter trash.

And I'm OK with that.

(Fandom notes:

SamBucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, also known as WinterFalcon.)

Very few and very mild Content Warnings for this one:

- mild injury

References to:

- past trauma

- nightmares

- general violence

- sexy times

...and that's pretty much everything with this one! My emo goblin spaghetti brain must be slipping.

This week's fic, then, is:

  1. I think the marvel fandom is already a weird fandom to have time loops in because time loops is something being played with more in the MCU. So to integrate even more time loops on top of that makes my brain go all fuzzy.

    1. Lol, it's just your basic groundhog day Gay romance, Em! ;)
