Friday Fics Fix - No More False Starts


Sorry if you saw this post appear briefly yesterday. I hit the publish button instead of the 'save' 😅 - ok, let's resume our regular service:



'“How was deducing the relationship status of the entire jury relevant?”'

Well-written Johnlock!

Now that that has brought every M/M-loving Sherlockian's head up like a li'l meerkat, lemme tell you about this awesome well-written Johnlock I found!

(Fangirling notes:

Johnlock - John Watson and Sherlock Holmes (usually from BBC's Sherlock) having a romantic and/or sexual relationship.

Sherlockian - BBC Sherlock fan)

Friday Fics Fix - HP Halloween: Star-Crossed Rumors



'...But it wasn’t a dream and he was fully clothed. When he looked back over at the group of girls, they giggled even harder, whispering to each other'


fics fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape



Yes! It's time for another week of HP Halloween!

Because October = Harry Potter fanfiction.

I don't make the rules I just... wait, no, I do make the rules! Yay me! 😆

(...I'ma blame the caffeine. #JustSaying. 😅)

Friday Fics Fix - HP Halloween Begins!


'Malfoy looks shocked, like a deer caught in headlights, nowhere to run and just staring wide eyed at Ron, pushing Harry towards him. Suddenly Hermione realises what Luna meant: the bet.'

Fics Fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape



It's October! Which means a whole month's worth of Harry Potter fanfiction, 'Friday Fics Fix' posts, here at Dora Reads!

(Because that way I can avoid Halloween-themed fics and therefore hopefully avoid reading things I can't un-read. 😅)

Friday Fics Fix - Light and Dark


'There was a noise somewhere but he couldn't make it out. He tried to call for help but it wasn't words, just a distressed sound and more tears.'

fics fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape



I love Oliver Queen, aka The Green Arrow, and the show he's the lead of - which is handily named Arrow. 😅

(Also handily, this was the first in the CW's DC series, known collectively as 'Arrowverse')




Oliver's had something of a rough life. 

I mean, the first 20-something years were pretty sweet - he was the priviliged trust fund party-boy with little regard for what substances he was sticking in his body, and the feelings of his romantic partners.

(I was gonna make a dodgy pun there, but thankfully resisted. If you can figure out what it would've been, then you've probably read as much fanftiction as I have! 😅)

Month in Review(s) - July 2019



July was too goddamned hot.


July - Gorffenaf title graphic with really big sun at the bottom and puffy clouds and stuff
I spelled Gorffennaf wrong in the graphic - oops! 😅


I'm not built for anything past 23C, and it hit, like 31C.

I know to some of you who live in hotter places than the UK, that's nothing but... it's really not nothing to us!

I'm not a nice person when I'm hot - I'm grumpy af and just want to make the world suffer.

Also, I live in Wales. Summer is traditionally one big rain shower - WTAF with this heat?!

Friday Fics Fix - Rub-a-Dub




'Draco may have screamed (in a very manly and authoritative way, he later insisted to Harry) when he saw the state of the bathroom.'

Fics Fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape




Sometimes, with fanfiction, you only have two choices: fun and fluffy... or things you can't unsee.

I mean, I don't make the rules, I just read the fics.

Friday Fics Fix - 3-For-1 Boarding-School Special





I normally recommend one fic a week in these posts. This week, I'm gonna rec three.


Fics Fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape



Why? Because I can't choose between them.

And now I've given up trying - I'm just gonna give 'em to you, with a bit of info about each!

Friday Fics Fix - Murder House Party!



“You guys seem really chill about all this,” observed Ben. “By this point most people are running around screaming.”

“Occupational hazard,” said Klaus.

“I’ve lost a lot of blood,” said Diego. “I’m just accepting everything at face value right now.”

If there's one thing that Netflix has got me obsessed with as much as Umbrella Academy, it's American Horror Story.

(Only on season 2 #NoSpoilersPlease!)

Friday Fics Fix - How They Swing



'"Ryan and I are the best couple," he said.


Tommy held up a fist to bump. "Sell it, man. It would be hilarious if you won." Chad left him hanging with his hand in the air'


Fics Fix title image w/ purple background and white lightning bolt shape



High School Musical 2.

You all familiar? It's the one with the golf club and swimming pool and all that.

Friday Fics Fix - They Didn't Teach Us This At the Academy



"I swear, all the doors in this damn house are going to be destroyed by the end of tonight," Diego muttered.


Fics Fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape


Yes, we are Umbrella Academy-ing again dearest nerdlets!

(Not least because it's a safe place to hide from Endgame spoilers! Lol.)

Friday Fics Fix - A Future?



'"Fine, fine," Granger said, starting to pace. "Only my boyfriend is a Neanderthal who won't look past the end of his nose."

"Ah, perfectly understandable then," Narcissa said kindly.'



fics fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt




It's time for some more from the king of all fandoms - Harry Potter.

Seriously, there would be soooo much less fan content in the world without Harry Potter! Lol.

We thank you, Potterheads, we thank you. 😉

Friday Fics Fix - Mischief-Making


'Peter turned around and left the lab area in a calm and orderly fashion*.

*in this situation, calm and orderly means that Peter sprinted the f**k away from there, trying not to scream.

And he continued this way, all the way to the quarters where Loki was staying, slamming the door open to reveal Shuri painting Loki’s nails.'

I LOVE THIS FIC!

Argh, the realism of the surrealism of it all is just awesome! 😅

Friday Fics Fix - Yer a Wizard ...Ianto?



'“Ianto?” Jack was looking down from his office.  He slowly descended the steps.  “One of your friends is the Minister for Magic.”'

fics fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape



I'm starting to come to the conclusion that literally everything has been mixed with Harry Potter in fanfiction-form.

Kind of like the magical PG version of Rule 34

...Well, mostly PG.

...Well, some of it's PG.

...Well, this fic doesn't have any sex, ok?!

(If you don't know what rule 34 is, I advise protecting your innocence and not looking it up. You can't unknow it!)

Month in Review(s) - January 2019



January went by in a flash - and not the cool, Barry Allen, kind. (You gotta love nerd humour 😁)


January title image with calendar background and fireworks



I guess it's because I had an awful cold for half the month...? 😷

And aside from that, I've just been doing the usual, hectic, working-my-a**-off, stuff.

Friday Fics Fix - What If?



'He was strangely touched that Sherlock had remembered his fondness for meringue.'


fics fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape



I'm not sure I like this week's fic...

'...wait, wait, wait! Cee, are you saying you're recommending something you don't even like?'

Yes, hypothetical nerdlet, yes I am.

Why? Because even though I'm not sure I like it, I am sure that it's interesting.
