Friday Fics Fix - Consulting With The Little Girl On The Bike

'But, anyway, the point is….The vibes were off. Of this, Klaus was certain.'

Title: F3. Background: kaleidoscopic patterns


Yes, this is The Umbrella Academy (TUA) again. 

Because I'm complete trash and refuse to feel guilty about that 😅

And you know I love it, revel in it, freaking adore it when fic authors get creative.

And this is one where the fic author got creative.

Of course, that happens a lot with the TUA - between the super-powers and The Little Girl With The Bike, there's a lot of fertile ground for fandom creators to plant in.

Argh! Don't you freaking love it when people interact with art like this - exploring things that the main work probably won't?

Sorry - I'm doing it again, aren't I?

I just love the life that happens with fan creation - stories are breathing, art is living, y'know?

Klaus Hargreeves claps his shoes together, jumps down off the bar he'd been sitting on, and follows his brother Five while saying 'That went great.'

So, we pick up at the end of series 3 and things are Not Right.

Klaus can feel it. Klaus can't freaking stand it.

But while he would love to consult with The Little Girl on all of that, his siblings aren't too fond of the idea of him dying just to get some one-on-one time with an adolescent metaphysical entity.

He may not have much of a choice though... 

I won't go into it too much, because I think it's best experienced with fresh eyes, but I really enjoyed the creative explorations here.

Like - we don't get much explanations in the show about the powers themselves. We might or might not get some details in the last series, but as of right now, we've got nothing except the concept of 'marigolds' which is vague at best.

This... comes up with some reasons. And it's clever.

It's very clever.

Some Content Warnings for this one:

- murder

- blood

- corpses

- grief

- traumatic events and reactions to trauma

- suicidal ideation (kind of - superhero-shenanigans)

- references to child abuse

- family issues, because TUA

...I think that's everything, but it might not be, so be careful!

This week's fic, then, is:

well aren't you a miracle by aheartofkyber

Are you a TUA fan?

Are we gonna get some answers in series 4? Do we even want answers? Or is it better left open-ended so that fanfics can fill in the gaps?

  1. I think I'd like some answers! I don't want everything tied together and resolved but maybe an exploration of origin of powers would be cool.

    1. It would be interesting if it was - but it's not a 'I must have answers!' thing for me. But then, I'm used to Welsh mythology, where everything's just like, 'and then these two characters who were arguing turned into a bird and a fish and the bird chased the fish' with absolutely no explanation whatsoever. Lol.
