Cat notepaper on desk reading '2018 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Hosted by Cat on the Bookshelf'







This quarter I read 96 fic-chapters.

Combined with last quarter's 63, that's 159 fic-chapters. (I hope. That's what the calculator said anyway.)

Thank you, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, for being an example of the good and the strong in this country.

Thank you for dismissing Trump as the little boy that he is.


Thank you for showing such dignity in such difficult circumstances.

Thank you for standing strong in the face of bigotry.

Friday Fics Fix - Your Pal. Your Bucky.







'Bucky went town to town, dance hall to dance hall, picking up women despite his dull dancing shoes. His smile made up for it. He took Steve to the local ones, but he always danced away into the crowd. Bucky loved to dance.

Loved.
 
Back then Bucky loved a lot of things.'

What, did you really think that we'd reach the end of Pride Month (aka June,) without me rec'ing you some Stucky?! No way!

(Fangirling notes:

Rec'ing is recommending.

Stucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers (Captain America) - aka the relationship that Marvel needs to give us immediately.)

Friday Fics Fix - Wooing, Midgard-Style






'"I always have to wonder about it, you know?" Loki whispers one night as they're eating take out and watching a television program. 

Tony looks up from his food, "Wonder about what?" he frowns. 

"Yeah." Loki nods, but doesn't continue talking.'

OK, this is take 2 of this post, because it actually effing published itself on Wednesday.

My luck, sometimes guys, my luck.

Obviously that version was deleted (the deleting was done with the accompaniment of me squealing 'ahhhh!' quite a bit.)

You don't need to see my drafts. It's not a good thing. 😅






So, this fic.

This fic is random af. And you all know that that's just the way I like it! 😉

4 Fangirling-Worthy Webcomics With Central F/F Romance (That Are Also Available In Print!)







Ladies who love ladies are amazing.

So, as it's Pride Month, and I'm a Queer lady who loves the nerdy things in life, I think it's time we celebrate some central F/F relationships, don't you?

This short list of comics features romantic relationships ranging from the sexy to the innocent, and ladies who have their own unique personalities and situations.

Available to read online (for free!) or in printed form, let these ladies bring a little love to your lives!

Friday Fics Fix - Coming Out Aro








'This was the perfect opportunity to come out. These were the people who deserved to know, if anyone did... But what if? Part of him whispered. What if they don’t accept you? What if everything goes wrong?'

Friday Fics Fix - Lady Love







'Ava stops and stares. There is Sara Lance, trained assassin and former vigilante, face down on her desk drooling. When Sara snorts and a little drool bubble forms at the corner of her mouth, Ava has to slap her hand over her mouth to keep from laughing out loud.'

Sara Lance, former Black Canary, current White Canary, general bad-a**, assassin, and time-ship captain; an amazing hero.

She's awesome. She's also a Bisexual lady with an open preference for the ladies over the dudes. 

She leads the way for Queer rep. in the Arrowverse (that's all the CW's DC superhero shows.)

I would also very much like to marry her, or maybe the actress Caity Lotz who plays her. Either is fine by me.

Friday Fics Fix - Johnlock Blogging










'(Don’t worry, if you were, which you weren’t. He’s fine; some poor kid found him in a ditch, pretending to be a dead body in the name of science.)'







fics fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape








You can't be a blogger without being at least a little bit obsessed with blogging.

You can deny it if you like, but it's true.

We all have a serious fascination with the slightly weird processes which combine to make this thoroughly modern medium. (...and that was a weird sentence! *shrugs*)

Comics Wrap-Up - One More Off-Key Anthem







comics wrap-up title image with manga-style woman handing her shadow a flower








I don't know whether you've noticed lately, but these comics wrap-ups are less thorough than they used to be - but don't panic! That's on purpose.

It was getting to the point where I was trawling things formulaically and obsessing over not missing anything.

So I figured I'd take it back to basics - sharing comics-related stuff I found awesome or funny or whatever over the course of the week! 😎

Nerd Church - Reactive









My new favourite thing* is YouTube reaction videos.


Not of the clickbait-y type. (Y'know, where either the original video or the reaction is like 'you'll never guess what happened next!' or has some sort of cheap/misleading title? Those ain't my thing.)

*Well... one of my favourite things, I'm a complex person dammit!
