Friday Fics Fix - Horror Movie MCU

 

'“Who would be controlling it?” Joaquin asked. “And why our camp?”

She shrugged. “I don’t know. Why those six kids in the movie? It’s just entertainment, right? Entertainment doesn’t need a big message with metaphors and motifs.”'

This fic's a fun one.

Sometimes you just want fics to be fun - maybe a little silly - and a lot entertaining.

Plus I'm a sucker for a unique and/or quirky premise - we all know this.

Friday Fics Fix - This Is An Angst-Fest

 

'Tony Stark had, until now, been having a good day.'

I'm not gonna lie: this is an angst-fest.

This is pure, premium, 'should we be worried about fic authors?' angst.

...Which is why I love it, ofc. 😅

Friday Fics Fix - In My Defence, It's A Shared Universe

 

'“Hey, settle a debate for me,” he says to the poor twenty-something that probably doesn’t get paid enough to deal with Clint.

Sam gives her a sympathetic look. “Clint, man, give it a rest—” he tries, but Clint will not be deterred.'

I was looking for Hawkeye fanfics, and this one popped up instead.

And it's not technically a Hawkeye fic, and it may have Sam and Bucky from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS)/MCU (Marvel movies) - but it's a shared universe, y'know?



OK, you got me. It's SamBucky.

...but the Hawkeye squad are here too!

Kate! Yelena! Clint!

All the sass!

Friday Fics Fix - This Version of Captain America is Unnerving

 

'...superheroes are great for preventing the destruction of the earth, but they don’t seem to give a damn about high rise apartments or coffee shops or the disastrous economic catastrophes they leave in their wake.'

Honestly, what is this fic?

I have no idea what I just read.

It might be some great literary piece, doomed to languish on the Internet because it was published on a fanfiction website and not in The New Yorker (or wherever high-fallutin' things get published - I dunno,)

 - or it may be trash.

It may be complete and utter pulp trash, comparable with the crackiest of crack fics. (It's even tagged 'Crack Treated Seriously' by the author.)


(Fandom notes:

Crack is fanfiction that is so bizarre that you wonder what substances the author may or may not have been imbibing in (#Don'tDoDrugsKids))

Friday Fics Fix - For Stucky Purposes

 

'He promised more details when they weren’t running for their lives, and Bucky was damn well going to hold him to that. Because this kind of stuff didn’t just happen to people.'

One of the many, many, things I love about fanfiction is the breadth of the writing.

Fanfic writers are as varied and diverse a group as you're likely to find - which means the range of the stuff they write is incredible.

...which, while all 100% true, is something I'm bringing up here because I'm rationalising bringing you a fic from the same fandom two weeks in a row 😅





But - BUT! - this fic is so different to last week's that it feels like they're from different fandoms entirely!

(...and if that still didn't convince you, then I'll remind you that it's my blog, so I get pick the fanfiction 😅)

Friday Fics Fix - Dealing With The Stabby Teenager In Your Kitchen


'“Who is he?” Clint asks.

Sam shrugs his shoulders. “I don't know. He broke in, only thing he's really said is Steve's name.”'

I love fanfiction AUs.

AUs can be an incredible way for fic authors to play around with the characters and situations involved in the canon.

...and the best AUs are often the least fantastical.

Friday Fics Fix - FrostIron Schmoop (Don't Judge Me!)

'“You mortals are truly horrendous at naming constellations.”'

This week's fanfiction is short and sweet.

I fully admit it - this be schmoopy af.

No angst as far as the eye can see. (...Which is highly unusual with me involved, obviously 😅)

Friday Fics Fix - Another SamBucky Rec List!

 

It's been a little while since my first SamBucky rec list - so I thought I'd bring you some more of the shippy goodness!


(Fandom notes:

SamBucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes from the MCU (Marvel) movies etc., especially the Captain America movies, and the The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) TV series.

Shippy = related to ships.

Ships are relationships between two or more characters.)

As always with this kind of list, the Content Warnings will be in the original rec'ing post, which I'll link to.

Also pay attention to the fic author's tags on the fics themselves, and generally take care, dearest nerdlets!

(You can also check the rec'ing posts for whether the fics have SPOILERS or not.)
