Friday Fics Fix - The Nature Of The Void

'He grieves quietly.

The world is ending in three days; actually, truly ending.

Odd, how it feels like his already has.'

Title: F3. Background: kaleidoscopic patterns


This is well-written, and you know we have a rule around these parts - if I find a well-written fic, I have to rec. it.

So - here we are! Rec'ing the fic.

This is a The Umbrella Academy (TUA) fic which uses an extremely vague, all-we-have-are-vibes, kind of timeline, that tenuously takes place some time in season 1 -

- and it's going to be SPOILER territory from here on out because I can't say any more about this fic without delving headfirst into SPOILER territory.

Via Giphy

OK, this tenuosly takes place some time in season 1, after Klaus comes back to Vietnam but before the end of the world.

Viktor transitions around half-way through the fic (because our canon is so diverged we've made a pretty unique AU by that point,) so his original name and pronouns are used before this, just as a heads up.

(Fandom notes:

Canon divergence is where the fic follows the canon up to a certain point, and then breaks away.

Canon is the 'official' stuff in the book/film/whatever.

AU = Alternate Universe.)

This fic delves into death and the void and ghosts and most importantly, brings Klaus' boyfriend, Dave, into the void, which changes everything.

Some elements aren't that well-developed - also could've done without the OC teenage boyfriend imho, it would've made the whole thing more slick - but the general quality of the writing more than makes up for it.

(Fandom notes:

OC = Original Character; a character that belongs solely to the fan-creator, and did not originate in the source media or fandom.)

It also explores some interesting theories about Klaus' powers, and the nature of the void.

- I enjoyed it, anyway.

(Plus, there's some angst in there... the emo goblin spaghetti brain wants what the emo goblin spaghetti brain wants. 😅)

Some Content Warnings for this one, then:

- general violence

- murder

- horror elements

- blood/gore

- references to war

- child abuse

- child neglect

- child soldiers, b/c TUA

- substance abuse and addiction, b/c Klaus

- family issues, b/c TUA always, I might've forgotten something, so please be careful!

Are you a fan of fics exploring different aspects of shows or whatever?

Do you agree with my 'well-written, must-rec' rule?
