Friday Fics Fix - Loki Gets His A** Kidnapped

 

'“So that’s why I’m here?” Loki asked. “You think that I’ve become soft?”'

I love this MCU fic - it's so much fun.

So this is FrostIron - kinda - and verging on crack - but not all the way there. 

It's really comic-booky - the action is something I could imagine in a graphic novel, and the whole *waves hands* ...vibe feels like it belongs in the panels of a comic book.

Not least because we're dealing with Dr Doom and MODOK - stock comics villains, after all, and pretty common go-tos for fic authors who need villains that aren't embroiled in the main MCU continuity.

Friday Fics Fix - Surprisingly Wholesome SamBucky

 

'“Nothing happened.”

“You only had one hotel bill,” Rhodey pressed.'

Want some SamBucky where Sam doesn't realise they're even a couple?

Want it to come in the form of a fic which, despite the sexting (or near enough to,) is surprisingly wholesome?

Of course ya do! 😉😅

Friday Fics Fix - Between Punishment and Compassion


'"You got a phone? Look up local B&Bs," Sam said to Bucky. "Or whatever Canadian is for B&B."

"I think it's just B&B. They literally speak the same language, Sam."'

Yes, this is a The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) fic.

In my defense: I've been totally open that I am trash 😅

And! Also! This fic might be TFATWS, but it's a lot different to the sort of stuff I usually rec from this fandom.

Friday Fics Fix - Once Upon A SamBucky Fairytale

 

'“Um,” said Sam, looking from Bucky to the golden retriever, “Do you know the dog?”

“Uh,” said Bucky, picking the honestly very large dog up, and walking around Sam, “Sort of? Could you… wait a moment? Watch the soup.”'

Friday Fics Fix - Superhero Mission Fics

 

I've been reading a lot of mission fics lately, so I figured I'd take the time to revisit a few of my faves 

(...and take you all along for the ride, ofc 😉)

So, let's slow down and rewind so's everyone's on the same page: what is a mission fic?

A mission fic is a piece of fanfiction that's based around an episodic-style storyline - not dissimilar to a monster-of-the-week/murder-of-the-week style vibe.

They're usually (but not always) written about fandoms which involve a lot of action/adventure hijinks - especially if they contain characters who are in the military, or are military-adjacent.

Friday Fics Fix - Bucky Angst (I Regret Nothing)

 

'Sam’s hand hovers near his arm again, just in the corner of his eye. Just in case he collapses without warning or something. Bucky hates that he has to bite his tongue and accept that as a legitimate probability'



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



This week's fic appealed to my emo goblin spaghetti-brain. 

I regret nothing.
