Friday Fics Fix - Random and Slightly Absurd


'“We need to go to the park. There’s a wizard there: it’s his fault.” It is hard to know if Ben intends this to be helpful.'

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

I'm pretty sure there's time loop fanfiction for every fandom.

And ironically, despite being not that into time loops (aside from Happy Death Day, of course,) I keep reading time loop fics (over and over and... 😅)

(If you want to check out some SamBucky in a time loop, check this post out here. You're welcome.)

(Fandom notes:

Time loop = a day repeating and only one person/a few people remember it. Think Groundhog Day.)

So this is The Umbrella Academy (TUA) time loop fanfiction.

The basics here is that Klaus is woken up to the ghost version of Ben being like, 'Time loop, dude! Time. Loop. Do something, because I'm the only one who remembers and I am bored.'

And Klaus is like... 'but I don't wanna we have any muffins left?' 😂

Honestly, I can't say too much more about this fic, except that I did not expect it to take the direction it did.

...Anything else, and I risk spoiling it for you, which I don't wanna do.

The fic author actually describes this is a crack fic which... I respectfully disagree, I think it makes too much sense 😅

Like, I have read a lot of fanfiction in my time - I literally read 10-30 fics per week, because there's no way I'd find enough to rec in these posts otherwise. 

And so many fics I've read should have been labelled as crack fic. And weren't.

I've uh... read some very cursed things, dearest nerdlets. 😅

(Fandom notes:

Crack fics are... warped. They are cracked. 

They are the unholy cursed offspring of the Internet age. 

They are chaos incarnate as represented by meme culture. 

I don't know how else to explain it, tbh. 

You don't find them - they find you.)

...Anyway. My point is that this didn't really make a ping on my crack radar, y'know? 

Still, crack fics are subjective af, so who can really say? Maybe I'm just jaded at this point.

It is random, and slightly absurd, so maybe it edges in as light crack, who knows?

I loved it, regardless.

If you're original enough to spring things on me that I wasn't expecting, you're getting a rec!

Some Content Warnings, then, though not many:

- alcohol abuse and addiction

- walking in on masturbation (...possibly a consent issue here? Not sure. It's better to warn you, just in case.)

References to:

- pseudo-incest

- drug addiction always, be careful in case I missed something!

This week's fic, then, is:

Do you read crack fics?

Have I read too much fanfiction? (...I'm gonna regret asking that one.)

  1. Well I just learned a new term today, cracked fics! You should create a fanfiction dictionary.

    1. *Crack* fics - they *are* cracked ;)

      There are also other, more substance-based, definitions... clue's in the name.

      Lol, I could! I have neither the patience nor the time, though, so I think I'll leave that to fandom wikis and urban dictionary ;)
