Friday Fics Fix - The Trick of the Detail

 
'...it was possible that they hadn’t thought through all of the consequences of Loki joining the team. They certainly hadn’t anticipated this one.'

You know (or maybe you don't, in which case, lemme inform you,) I have a love of random-a** Avengers fics - add Loki to the mix?

Hell yeah, I am there!

Friday Fics Fix - A Shot of Venom

 
'Venom crashed through the window and leapt out of the building, leaving Dan to wonder how the hell he was going to explain this to maintenance, or to Anne.'


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





I love Venom - let's get some Venom!

...I mean the film and/or comic-book character. 

Not, like, poison. Because that would be bad. 

Not, like, hatred, either.

In summary: the Marvel alien symbiote, rather than any other usage of the word venom. 😅

Comics Wrap-Up - You Can't Spell 'Awesome' Without 'Me'



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


It's Thursday, the world is still pretty bizarre, let's get some comics-y and superhero-y goodness!

Once again, everything is under the 'Other Stuff' category (seems to be happening a lot!) for which we will once again blame Loki.

Friday Fics Fix - Pride Fics Fest: The Love They Never Allowed On Screen (Steve x Bucky)



It's the last week of Pride Fics Fest!

I hope you've enjoyed the posts that I've done this month - I've really enjoyed writing them! 

It's nice, now and then, to mix-up and refresh a series of posts (Friday Fics Fix) which I've been writing for over 4 years now - I hope you liked it too, dearest nerdlets!

I'm sure a lot of my fanfiction posts will still be based around LGBTQ+ characters and contents going forward - partly because it's me, and partly because it's fanfiction 😉

This week's post is celebrating my OTP, Stucky - the greatest love story Marvel and Disney ever thwarted.

(Fangirling notes:

OTP = 'One True Pairing' - the couple you believe were destined to be together, and you will fight for 'til your (hopefully metaphorical) dying breath!

Stucky - a relationship between Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, and Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier)

Comics Wrap-Up - Just Keep Staring At the Sun, Pray For Summer's End



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


It's Thursday, the UK is way too hot, let's cool off with some superhero-y comics-y goodness!

Everything this week is once again in the 'Other Stuff' category, and therefore, as per tradition, we shall blame Loki.

Friday Fics Fix - Pride Fics Fest: Fics With Trans+ Characters



It's another Friday in June my dearest nerdlets, which means that it's another instalment in my Pride Fics Fest - and this time we're gonna look at fics with Trans+ main characters.




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




Fanfiction is here to support our Trans and Non-Binary siblings!

Fanfiction can be a place where Trans+/NB+ people can find the kind of representation that is largely not present in mainstream media.

Friday Fics Fix - Pride Fics Fest: Queer Canon!


Welcome back to Pride Fics Fest dearest nerdlets!


This week we're gonna look at those oh-so-amazing canonically Queer characters and relationships, and fanfiction that celebrates that.

For those who don't know, canon is the official stuff that's actually in the book or TV series or film or whatever, explicitly...

...as opposed to stuff where you have to scramble around in the sub-text, or stuff which fandom picks up and Queers all on its lonesome ;)



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




Let's start with the horror masterpiece I will never shut up about: 2009's unapologetically Queer Megan Fox film, Jennifer's Body.

In 2009, there was a girl named Jennifer Check, and in 2019 I rec'd Big Red by spheeris1 - a fic that is essentially a love letter to this under-appreciated film.

(Seriously, I'm never gonna shut up about this film! I love it so much!)

Friday Fics Fix - Pride Fics Fest: Bringing Subtext Into The Spotlight



June is Pride Month dearest nerdlets! 

So, since a lot of events have been cancelled this year (*whispers* I've never actually been to an event and that's OK! There's no checklist for Queer validation!) and fanfiction is, generally, Queer af, I figured I'd have my own li'l Pride Fics Fest!




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




This week, I'm looking at fics which take that Queer subtext (which ranges from slipping under the radar to just plain Queerbaiting,) and bring it to the forefront!

Because fanfiction, as mentioned, is hella Gay!

So, I've been mining my extensive fanfiction-related blogpost archive, to bring attention to the fics which bring attention to the subtext! :)

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.
