Friday Fics Fix - Indulgent and Cute Spidey Sickfic, Because Why TF Not?



'Peter sat stiffly on the couch, unsure of what he was supposed to do. He was too hot (but he was shivering?) and his head ached so miserably he could barely think.'

Look, sometimes you just need something fluffy, k?

I don't have a lot of time to write this post this week on account of life, the universe, and everything, so this week's Friday Fics Fix is kind of thrown together on a wing and a prayer!

Sorry if it sounds a little rushed. It's cos it is. 😅

Comics Wrap-Up - From the Fading Light I Fly

I don't know whether there's just a lot of superhero/comics stuff this week, or if I've just rambled on more than usual... maybe both! 😎

Comics Wrap-Up - I'll Be The Ghost Inside Your Head When We Are Through

This is one of those weeks which remind me why I love comics!

(It's possible there was drama, in fact there probably was - but dude I didn't notice it! 😘)

Comics and superheroes are there for you when sh** gets tough, showing you it's ok to be different, it's ok to act a li'l weird, it's ok to be yourself and defy expectations! 😊

(It's also ok to have fun!)

Month in Review(s) - January 2019



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

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.

2018 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Final Update + 2019 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Sign-Up




Shocked people: 'Guess What? I am participating in the 2019 fanfiction challenge! The challenge is being hosted by Carrie @ CatOnTheBookshelf'


Fanfiction time! XD


In no way has this post been thrown together in the odd moments that my hectic life grants me *shifty glances.*

OK, so maybe it has... just don't tell anyone! 😎

I was originally trying to get this post all done and dusted in December, but my December was... not good. So here we are!

Friday Fics Fix - A Different Kind of Poison





(Warning: this post is basically about Depression.)



'Today, however, all Venom can discern is what could be considered the cerebral equivalent of static. Everything is fuzzy and the thoughts that are trying to surface keep coming up blurry, with no real impulse behind them.'

I love Venom.

I love Venom to the end of the Earth. Cos I'm just that kind of weird sassy nerd.

So I've been reading Venom fanfiction.

Friday Fics Fix - Iron Can Be Cold, But Spiders Need Warmth





'Peter grunts. His eyes open only slightly, but it doesn't look like he understands where he is. The kid is like dead weight slung over Tony's metal-clad shoulders. He's also freezing cold.'

Let's have some Tony-Peter Father-Son-type-cuteness with a side of self-care, shall we?

I love that fics like this exist!

I also love that fics can take a random thought, like, for example 'what if Peter Parker has the same lack of thermoregulation as a spider?' and f**king runs with it!

Friday Fics Fix - Am I More Than You Bargained For, Yeah?




'She comes back with a hiker’s backpack, out of which she pulls a pair of jersey shorts, black leggings, a red bandana and a bunch of colorful string bracelets.

"Jesus," Sam says, looking it over. "Is there some naked hippie grad student knocked out somewhere in the hotel right now?"

"None of these items will be traced back to us," Natasha says soothingly, which doesn't answer his question.'

Oh man, this fic! This fic is EVERYTHING.

Honestly, the dedication it takes to write over 500 pages of the Winter Soldier, aka Bucky Barnes, prioritising self-care and dealing with seventy years worth of trauma is freaking amazing!
