Friday Fics Fix - Bucky's A Literal Demon and Sam's A Literal Angel


'The first time Bucky laid his beady yellow snake eyes on Sam, however, he knew none of the other demons’ vices held a candle to his own.

He fell in love with an angel, after all.'


Title: F3. Background: kaleidoscopic patterns

I don't know whether I liked this week's fic.

...I mean, it's good. I just don't know whether or not I liked it.

Happens sometimes *shrugs*

Anywho, this is a The Falcon And The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) SamBucky AU where Bucky's a literal demon, and Sam's a literal angel.

There's also some explicit metaphysical M/M sexy-times.

...Easily offended religious types may want to skip this one. Just, for your own good, tbh. 🙈😅

(Fandom notes:

SamBucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Marvel's Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, sometimes known as WinterFalcon.

AU = Alternate Universe.)

This is clearly inspo'd by Good Omens (even the author's tags admitted it,) but don't get too hung up on the comparisons - this is very much doing its own thing.

I think maybe part of the reason I don't know whether I like this fic is that my brain was expecting it to stick more closely to the themes and motifs in either Good Omens or TFATWS/the MCU.

It takes inspiration from both, but doesn't stick close to either, which - my theory is, anyway - left me a little... flail-y, I guess.

Like, I was trying to grab onto the pieces I knew to hang the narrative on, and every time I thought I had it, it slipped through my fingers.

BUT - it's still Good.

It's creative, it's explorative, and it's well-written.

And you know I have no choice when it comes to well-written fanfiction - I must rec it. Simple as that.

Some Content Warnings then:

- religious and demonic imagery pretty much everywhere

- general violence

- war

- injury and death

- on-page explicit sexy-times

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

This week's fic, then, is:

Angel/Demon AUs - yay or nay?

  1. I'm not a big angels/demons trope fan. LOVE vampire tropes, but that is the extent of religious-imagery inspired that I enjoy.

    1. Ha, since my first reaction was, 'wait - vampires are religious? Oh... yeah... the crucifixes, I guess' you can tell that I was not raised Catholic, (and only vaguely culturally Christian, tbh.) Lol.
