Friday Fics Fix - Vampires and A Smidge of FrostIron


'"Science waits for no man, Steve! Also Loki there's a welcome basket on your coffee table, let me know if you need help with anything!"'


Title: F3. Background: kaleidoscopic patterns

This is some good, ol' fashioned, Avengers fanfic.

...Only Tony Stark is a vampire, because why not?

Honestly, though, I love fandom's ability to stick vampires in literally anything.

There is at least one vamp fic in the majority of fandoms - especially if it's a fandom with a lot of fan created content: someone, somewhere, will write a vampire fic. And we love them for it.

This is casual vamp-i-ness - it's not the major plot of the story, it's just something that Tony happens to be, so deal with it.

...Which is a very Queer-adjacent narrative device, and one of the reasons I love it. 😅

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!

Anywho, the focus of this story is actually Thor and Loki coming to live with the Avengers in their shiny tower.

(We're very much employing the fanon surrounding Loki being coerced and/or controlled at the Battle of New York here. (Because it's just so expedient for fic authors, let's be honest.))

So get ready for Loki starting to learn that he's not the dirt on Thor's shoes, and a smidge of FrostIron (woo!)

(Fandom notes:

Fanon is a fan theory so widely accepted by the fandom that it's basically treated as canon at this point.

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

FrostIron is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Tony Stark and Loki.)

A few Content Warnings for this one:

- (supernatural-based) prejudice

- general violence

- implied low self-esteem

- references to:

    - blood

    - loss of autonomy

    - murder

    - general death (b/c vampire)

This week's fic, then, is:

I'll Hold My Head And Know The Streets Are Mine Tonight by Wolf_Kaiserin

Is everything better with vampires?
