Comics Wrap-Up - I Said There's So Much More That You Won't See



'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols


It's Thursday, we're still here, let's get some superhero-y and comics-y goodness!

(And once again everything's in the 'Other Stuff' category, for which we will blame Loki.)

Friday Fics Fix - A Star Wars Trio




I know Star Wars day was technically Monday (for those who are less fluent in nerd - 'May the Fourth be with you' is a pun that's taken on a life of its own,) but I figured now was a good time to take another look at some Star Wars fics!


Fics Fix!




Oh, and just assume that everything in this post has SPOILERS up to and including The Last Jedi.

(No, I haven't seen The Rise of Skywalker yet, so there won't be spoilers for that - but everything else is fair game.)

(Side-note: I'm still getting used to the new Blogger (the platform I use,) interface, so apologies if things look a bit strange!)

Comics Wrap-Up - The Stories I Hear Are The Stories I Tell



Comics Wrap-Up


It's Thursday, we could all do with that superhero-y comics-y goodness, let's do this dearest nerdlets!

Everything, once again is in the 'Other Stuff' category, for which we shall blame Loki! (As is traditional.)

(Side-note: after years of changing literally nothing, Blogger (the blogging platform I use,) suddenly decided to change everything to do with its design interface - so if anything looks wonky, please forgive me, I'm still getting the hang of this new set-up!)

Friday Fics Fix - The Self-Care Fanfic Rec-List



Fanfiction is a fab form of self-care (which I know I've said more than once, but that's because it's true!)

And seeing as how:

a) we could all do with all the self-care we can get atm...

and b) I have written a lot of fanfiction posts over the years...




I figured I'd take a look over my blog archives, and select some of the most useful fics for self-care.

(Side-note: looking through my archive is super-weird!)

'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols


Hello dearest nerdlets! I have all the superhero-y comics-y goodness that we all need, it's Thursday, let's do this!

(Everything's under the 'Other Stuff' category today, for which we will of course blame Loki - as is tradition.)

Friday Fics Fix - Three Hearts


'“Hey, He-Who-Lurks-Creepily-in-Corners,” Tony said. “You want a smoothie? You need to replace all the stuff you lost earlier.”'


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



Amongst the shippers of the MCU, there are many ships on which to sail.

(Yes, I'm talking Avengers again - I know, I've kind of been alternating between Avengers and Umbrella Academy lately, but they're the fics I've found that are worth recc'ing *shrugs* what's a nerdgirl to do?)

Friday Fics Fix - It Made Me Laugh, So I Had To



'Tony walks in, sees the two of them facing one another, Steve’s arms folded, hears about half a second of their conversation, and about-faces with military precision before walking back out.'  




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




This fic made me laugh - so of course, I had to rec. it.

Like, I was planning on going for another fandom this week - or at least not another Stucky fic but... *shrugs* this fic is what I found.

And I really liked it.

Friday Fics Fix - In Times of Trouble, Turn To Stucky



'“You mean after spending half the day thinking my ex-boyfriend was dead and then finding out that he’s alive but also a wanted criminal? I’m not doing great honestly!”'



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



I mean... in times of trouble, we should always turn to Stucky.

The world is somehow a little better when Captain America has a boyfriend. Obviously.

...And the most likely boyfriend (hell, the most likely romantic partner full stop #FightMe) for our dear Steve Rogers is Bucky Barnes.

Sorry,  alternative shippers. Your ships have value, but I can't be convinced. 😉

Nerd Church - St. David's Day Special! Let's Talk Robert Downey Jr as Dolittle!



Robert Downey Jr's performance as Dolittle is amazing. And he does it with a Welsh accent.

...I think it's fair to say, though, that the accent has had a mixed response.

And since today is St. David's day - and I never lose a chance to talk about Wales and being Welsh - what better time to discuss it?!

I Watched The Film First! *Gasps* - 5 Books That I Read Because I'd Seen The Adaptations

You know the voice that's just like: 'you've read the book, now see the movie!'

...that voice doesn't know me at all.


'I Watched The Film First!' projected on a screen at the front of a cinema


I read a butt-tonne of books. 

Like, I read at the 200-per-year kind of speed.

But I watch loads of film and TV adaps. before I read the book.
