Friday Fics Fix - Death Can't Stop a Jedi... From Pranking




'"In the meantime, I'm going to annoy our son back into the Light," Han said with restored good cheer.

"That's not how it works," Leia said.

"Has anyone tried?"'

Sometimes, I just love the randomness of fanfiction.

Like, if you hype up Hollywood writers on a lot of coffee, deprive them of sleep, and then give them action figures to play with, you get fanfic authors.

And that, my dearest nerdlets, is just one of the many beautiful things about the internet.




So this fic is based on the modern Star Wars films, and has a butt-tonne of SPOILERS, ok? Ok.

Friday Fics Fix - 3-For-1 Boarding-School Special





I normally recommend one fic a week in these posts. This week, I'm gonna rec three.


Fics Fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape



Why? Because I can't choose between them.

And now I've given up trying - I'm just gonna give 'em to you, with a bit of info about each!

Friday Fics Fix - Fish Tanks and Music Boxes


'Usually when her parents send her out to play (she always has to be sent) she divides her time between flower-picking (or drawing) and observing the other kids, pretending to be Jane Goodall.'

I love Agents of SHIELD - in particular I love Fitz and Simmons (known as FitzSimmons).

This is partly because they're smart, partly because they're sweet, and partly because they're British but NOT the villains!

Friday Fics Fix - Murder House Party!



“You guys seem really chill about all this,” observed Ben. “By this point most people are running around screaming.”

“Occupational hazard,” said Klaus.

“I’ve lost a lot of blood,” said Diego. “I’m just accepting everything at face value right now.”

If there's one thing that Netflix has got me obsessed with as much as Umbrella Academy, it's American Horror Story.

(Only on season 2 #NoSpoilersPlease!)

Friday Fics Fix - Blasting Off Again!



'"Only I've been looking back towards where the front door is and it's not there," Brock said.

"What?!" Ash and Misty yelped.

"Why didn't you tell us?!" Misty cried.'


Fics Fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape


I was a 90s kid (and I do mean 'kid,' I was v. smol!) so inevitably I watched the hell out of the original Pokรฉmon TV series.

It was weird, random, probably a little bit clichรฉ... and pretty much every kid watched it!

Friday Fics Fix - How They Swing



'"Ryan and I are the best couple," he said.


Tommy held up a fist to bump. "Sell it, man. It would be hilarious if you won." Chad left him hanging with his hand in the air'


Fics Fix title image w/ purple background and white lightning bolt shape



High School Musical 2.

You all familiar? It's the one with the golf club and swimming pool and all that.

Friday Fics Fix - Dream Girl, Outta This World



'Which reminded her, Kara and Alex were still there, and they were both trying very hard to pretend they weren’t watching the way that Nia was very clearly staring at Brainy.'



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



I love the Supergirl TV series.

I also absolutely adore the Supergirl characters, Brainy and Nia Nal.

And I ship the thing, SO HARD. Lol.

(Fangirling notes: I ship the thing = I support this romantic and/or sexual relationship)

Friday Fics Fix - In 2009, There Was a Girl Named Jennifer Check



'Because there is blood. And there is black stuff all over the floor.

And Jennifer is eyeing her like a dog does a bone, paws twitching and lips being licked.'


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



A decade ago, there was a film about two high school girls. And one of them ate boys.

And because it was unapologetically about Queer girls (this film is so Gay,) and because it was at least ten years ahead of its time, it was hated by critics and went unnoticed by the public for too long.

I've seen reviewers (mainly dudes, might I add,) talk sh** about it recently, of course, but the fact remains: this film is a f**king Queer Classic!

Friday Fics Fix - What Is Dead May Never Die




'He does a lot of odd little things that Sansa suspects he isn’t even aware of anymore. Things that helped him get through another day, another hour, with Ramsay.'
fics fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape




Game of Thrones after many long, long years, is coming to an end.

We have one episode left - only one.

But if the Harry Potter fandom has taught us anything, it's that fanfiction will continue, long, long after the end of the series.

Friday Fics Fix - They Didn't Teach Us This At the Academy



"I swear, all the doors in this damn house are going to be destroyed by the end of tonight," Diego muttered.


Fics Fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt shape


Yes, we are Umbrella Academy-ing again dearest nerdlets!

(Not least because it's a safe place to hide from Endgame spoilers! Lol.)

Friday Fics Fix - Friends Don't Let Friends Execute Other Friends


'...it started with a bandit, sword falling downwards towards Arthur’s exposed side. 

It started with Merlin, leaping from behind a tree, hand outstretched, eyes gold, a wordless cry of fear on his tongue. 

It started with a bandit flying through the air, and Arthur turning to Merlin with fear in his eyes.'

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



I love BBC's Merlin.

First, cos it's just generally awesome. Second, cos anything that continues to re-tell Celtic/Welsh mythology makes me happy! ๐Ÿ˜

Friday Fics Fix - Easter in Haven



'Audrey and Nathan dashed into the Grey Gull, each imagining terrible scenarios. None of their fears involved Duke with a spatula in hand, staring at the bar.'


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



One of my favouritest TV shows of all time is Haven.

If you haven't heard of it, then I'm not angry, just disappointed (not in you - in Society in general! ๐Ÿ˜…)

Friday Fics Fix - Is This A Family Or A War-Zone?



'Maybe, if he ran for long enough, he would get so hopelessly lost that he couldn’t go back to his siblings if he tried. After all, every time Klaus returned home, thought that they might become a family, he only set himself up for rejection.'





Fanfiction is brave, it's bold, and it's not scared to tackle the tough subjects.

This Umbrella Academy fic is about Klaus (big surprise, lol) - who you may or may not realise is my total fave character, and a Queer Queen with mental health issues. (Basically: he rocks.)

This fic also really refuses to back down when it comes to the tough stuff!

Friday Fics Fix - A Future?



'"Fine, fine," Granger said, starting to pace. "Only my boyfriend is a Neanderthal who won't look past the end of his nose."

"Ah, perfectly understandable then," Narcissa said kindly.'



fics fix title image with purple background and white lightning bolt




It's time for some more from the king of all fandoms - Harry Potter.

Seriously, there would be soooo much less fan content in the world without Harry Potter! Lol.

We thank you, Potterheads, we thank you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Friday Fics Fix - Mischief-Making


'Peter turned around and left the lab area in a calm and orderly fashion*.

*in this situation, calm and orderly means that Peter sprinted the f**k away from there, trying not to scream.

And he continued this way, all the way to the quarters where Loki was staying, slamming the door open to reveal Shuri painting Loki’s nails.'



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





I LOVE THIS FIC!

Argh, the realism of the surrealism of it all is just awesome! ๐Ÿ˜…

Friday Fics Fix - Indulgent and Cute Spidey Sickfic, Because Why TF Not?



'Peter sat stiffly on the couch, unsure of what he was supposed to do. He was too hot (but he was shivering?) and his head ached so miserably he could barely think.'


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



Look, sometimes you just need something fluffy, k?

I don't have a lot of time to write this post this week on account of life, the universe, and everything, so this week's Friday Fics Fix is kind of thrown together on a wing and a prayer!

Sorry if it sounds a little rushed. It's cos it is. ๐Ÿ˜…

Friday Fics Fix - Shelter From the Rain and Snow



'Diego can hear his own voice, somewhere between tired and terse, and he scrubs a hand over his eyes, feels the dryness of his palm catch on his stubble.'


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


I love this fic. It's excellent.

Like, dudes, this is good. Y'know?

I love it when fanfiction is well-written! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Friday Fics Fix - Girls' World



'"Maybe it’s not—," Ava started. A cone of flame whirled through the air. "Okay, maybe it is Mick."'


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



On International Women's Day, I think it's only appropriate to feature a fic about two of my favourite Queer female characters!

(I realise the link is maybe a little tenuous. But I don't actually care. I'm going with it ๐Ÿ˜Ž)

Friday Fics Fix - Magical Matilda



'Her lips pursed into a nearly invisible line. “And I feel obligated to let you know that Wormwood is a Wizarding name, while Honey most certainly is not.”'

Dydd Gลตyl Dewi Sant Hapus/Happy St. David's Day!

St. David is the patron saint of Wales - he doesn't have as interesting a story as Santes Dwynwen, he basically faffed around founding churches and doing the odd miracle here and there - but it gives me an excuse for a Welsh connection to this post!

(And you probably know that any excuse to include Wales in a post is good enough for me!)
