Friday Fics Fix - Who We Meet In The Shadows

 

'Nandor blinked at his question, almost owlish. “You want to see your human mother?” As if he had another kind.'

A little over a month ago, I explained to all of you that What We Do In The Shadows (WWDITS) is an amazing vampire-mockumentary work of genius that occupies space in my head, rent-free.

It continues to squat and not pay me a penny for its living quarters.

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.)

Friday Fics Fix - Hijinks Ensue To A Soundtrack of Queen Music

 

'He had slept every night since they’d defied Heaven and Hell and it was becoming a bit of a habit.'

A lot of Good Omens (GO) fanfiction tends to revolve around the ship 'Ineffable Husbands' 

- and this week's fic rec is no different.

Friday Fics Fix - Magical-Shenanigans-Related Food Poisoning

 

'John’s gotten sick in plenty of bars, but he’s almost sure that this is the first time alcohol hasn’t been involved.'

 

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


Ah, John Constantine.

A moody, broody, British Bisexual warlock and master of the occult, who's a character in my beloved Arrowverse show Legends of Tomorrow? And is played by a Welsh actor (Matt Ryan)?

Yeah, if you know me at all, you know that I had zero chance to resist.

Friday Fics Fix - Friends We Have In The Shadows


 

'He was hurt alright. That look wasn't a new color on him; Nandor seemed to be hurt quite a lot lately. Laszlo didn't want him to be alone.'

Vampire. Mockumentary.

Do I have your attention?

Good.

Nerd Church - Beethoven and Barbies: Smart Kid Characters From the Perspective of An Ex-Smart-Kid

 

Whenever someone's complaining about the attitudes of small children, and says something along the lines of:


well, you know what kids are like...

 

- my brain has a moment of confusion where it's like:


...Beethoven fans?

 

And then I realise that they don't mean that at all.

I've made no secret of the fact that I was a weird, precocious, little kid.

At the age of six, I loved fine art and classical music and reading reading reading.

My parents had only the barest knowledge of classical music, and none of fine art. So it's safe to say it was a learning experience for them 😅

Everything I've got for you this week is in the 'Other Stuff' category - looks like Loki's been playing tricks on me again. 😘

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."'



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



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.

AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This fic got me in the feelings, OK? 😅

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.”'



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



This is a weird fic.

Like, it's completely batpoop.

...And you know I love that 😉😅

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 😉)




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




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.
