Friday Fics Fix - The Trick of the Detail

 
'...it was possible that they hadn’t thought through all of the consequences of Loki joining the team. They certainly hadn’t anticipated this one.'

You know (or maybe you don't, in which case, lemme inform you,) I have a love of random-a** Avengers fics - add Loki to the mix?

Hell yeah, I am there!

Friday Fics Fix - A Shot of Venom

 
'Venom crashed through the window and leapt out of the building, leaving Dan to wonder how the hell he was going to explain this to maintenance, or to Anne.'

I love Venom - let's get some Venom!

...I mean the film and/or comic-book character. 

Not, like, poison. Because that would be bad. 

Not, like, hatred, either.

In summary: the Marvel alien symbiote, rather than any other usage of the word venom. 😅

'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols


It's Thursday, the world is still pretty bizarre, let's get some comics-y and superhero-y goodness!

Once again, everything is under the 'Other Stuff' category (seems to be happening a lot!) for which we will once again blame Loki.

Friday Fics Fix - Pride Fics Fest: The Love They Never Allowed On Screen (Steve x Bucky)



It's the last week of Pride Fics Fest!

I hope you've enjoyed the posts that I've done this month - I've really enjoyed writing them! 

It's nice, now and then, to mix-up and refresh a series of posts (Friday Fics Fix) which I've been writing for over 4 years now - I hope you liked it too, dearest nerdlets!

I'm sure a lot of my fanfiction posts will still be based around LGBTQ+ characters and contents going forward - partly because it's me, and partly because it's fanfiction 😉

This week's post is celebrating my OTP, Stucky - the greatest love story Marvel and Disney ever thwarted.

(Fangirling notes:

OTP = 'One True Pairing' - the couple you believe were destined to be together, and you will fight for 'til your (hopefully metaphorical) dying breath!

Stucky - a relationship between Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, and Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier)

'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background with speech bubbles containing heart symbols


It's Thursday, the UK is way too hot, let's cool off with some superhero-y comics-y goodness!

Everything this week is once again in the 'Other Stuff' category, and therefore, as per tradition, we shall blame Loki.

Friday Fics Fix - Pride Fics Fest: Fics With Trans+ Characters



It's another Friday in June my dearest nerdlets, which means that it's another instalment in my Pride Fics Fest - and this time we're gonna look at fics with Trans+ main characters.

Fanfiction is here to support our Trans and Non-Binary siblings!

Fanfiction can be a place where Trans+/NB+ people can find the kind of representation that is largely not present in mainstream media.

Comics Wrap-Up - The Stories I Hear Are The Stories I Tell



Comics Wrap-Up


It's Thursday, we could all do with that superhero-y comics-y goodness, let's do this dearest nerdlets!

Everything, once again is in the 'Other Stuff' category, for which we shall blame Loki! (As is traditional.)

(Side-note: after years of changing literally nothing, Blogger (the blogging platform I use,) suddenly decided to change everything to do with its design interface - so if anything looks wonky, please forgive me, I'm still getting the hang of this new set-up!)

Friday Fics Fix - The Self-Care Fanfic Rec-List



Fanfiction is a fab form of self-care (which I know I've said more than once, but that's because it's true!)

And seeing as how:

a) we could all do with all the self-care we can get atm...

and b) I have written a lot of fanfiction posts over the years...




I figured I'd take a look over my blog archives, and select some of the most useful fics for self-care.

(Side-note: looking through my archive is super-weird!)

'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols


Hello dearest nerdlets! I have all the superhero-y comics-y goodness that we all need, it's Thursday, let's do this!

(Everything's under the 'Other Stuff' category today, for which we will of course blame Loki - as is tradition.)

Friday Fics Fix - Three Hearts


'“Hey, He-Who-Lurks-Creepily-in-Corners,” Tony said. “You want a smoothie? You need to replace all the stuff you lost earlier.”'

Amongst the shippers of the MCU, there are many ships on which to sail.

(Yes, I'm talking Avengers again - I know, I've kind of been alternating between Avengers and Umbrella Academy lately, but they're the fics I've found that are worth recc'ing *shrugs* what's a nerdgirl to do?)

Friday Fics Fix - In Times of Trouble, Turn To Stucky



'“You mean after spending half the day thinking my ex-boyfriend was dead and then finding out that he’s alive but also a wanted criminal? I’m not doing great honestly!”'



'Fics Fix!' with purple background and white lightning bolt shape



I mean... in times of trouble, we should always turn to Stucky.

The world is somehow a little better when Captain America has a boyfriend. Obviously.

...And the most likely boyfriend (hell, the most likely romantic partner full stop #FightMe) for our dear Steve Rogers is Bucky Barnes.

Sorry,  alternative shippers. Your ships have value, but I can't be convinced. 😉
