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.'

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. 😅

2018 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Final Update + 2019 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Sign-Up




Shocked people: 'Guess What? I am participating in the 2019 fanfiction challenge! The challenge is being hosted by Carrie @ CatOnTheBookshelf'


Fanfiction time! XD


In no way has this post been thrown together in the odd moments that my hectic life grants me *shifty glances.*

OK, so maybe it has... just don't tell anyone! 😎

I was originally trying to get this post all done and dusted in December, but my December was... not good. So here we are!

Nerd Church - Media Overload: Quality, Quantity, and Diversity



There is more media and entertainment in our world today than ever before.

Even putting to one side the numerous web-pages and status updates that are published every single second, the rate at which new books, films, TV shows, songs, etc. are being created and published is immense.

Friday Fics Fix - Digging For Victory

Hello 2019! We got fanfiction, we got Bucky Bear, let's get down to it!




'Theoretically, she knew he must go other places sometimes, but it didn't seem to happen often, and from his overall air of nervousness, he seemed to be uncomfortable with it too.'



One of my favourite things on this planet is fanfiction which uses self-care and general mental-health recovery as its focus.

When the character involved just so happens to be my Bucky-bear, aka Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, it's like icing on the cake.

(In related news, I'm hungry and would very much like some cake, with or without icing.)

Friday Fics Fix - Iron Can Be Cold, But Spiders Need Warmth





'Peter grunts. His eyes open only slightly, but it doesn't look like he understands where he is. The kid is like dead weight slung over Tony's metal-clad shoulders. He's also freezing cold.'

Let's have some Tony-Peter Father-Son-type-cuteness with a side of self-care, shall we?

I love that fics like this exist!

I also love that fics can take a random thought, like, for example 'what if Peter Parker has the same lack of thermoregulation as a spider?' and f**king runs with it!

Friday Fics Fix - Am I More Than You Bargained For, Yeah?




'She comes back with a hiker’s backpack, out of which she pulls a pair of jersey shorts, black leggings, a red bandana and a bunch of colorful string bracelets.

"Jesus," Sam says, looking it over. "Is there some naked hippie grad student knocked out somewhere in the hotel right now?"

"None of these items will be traced back to us," Natasha says soothingly, which doesn't answer his question.'

Oh man, this fic! This fic is EVERYTHING.

Honestly, the dedication it takes to write over 500 pages of the Winter Soldier, aka Bucky Barnes, prioritising self-care and dealing with seventy years worth of trauma is freaking amazing!

Friday Fics Fix - Love Vs War. Freedom Vs Silence.






'He’d read all of Bucky’s letters over and over till he almost knew them by heart, and none of the phrases in the transcript were in any of those letters. There must be another letter, one that never got sent.'

Stop the presses, Cee's back on the Stucky!

Shocking, I know.


(Fangirling notes: Stucky is a Steve Rogers (Captain America) and Bucky Barnes romantic and/or sexual relationship. You can't tell me it doesn't make sense.)

Comics Wrap-Up - Everyone Here Is A Trophy

Like, what did I do to you Loki?! Why am I the outlet for your mischief?!* 😉

As you may've guessed, everything in this comics wrap-up is in the 'Other Stuff' category again.

And as always I blame Loki.




Loki's wtf face

*Not that I'd overly object to that 😉

Friday Fics Fix - Snapshot in the Stars




'Nebula sits on the small piece of ship beside him. “That’s exactly what we were - mercenaries to do his bidding. He trained us, ‘loved’ us, sent us to do whatever he felt was necessary to do.”'
