Friday Fics Fix - Awkward Flirting In An Alternate Universe







'Harry wasn’t entirely sure where he was, or why, but walking into a condemned building just for it to transform into one of the raunchiest-looking clubs Harry had had the misfortune of entering wasn’t a good sign.'

Friday Fics Fix - Perspectives






'She knew she should leave but she couldn’t move. Was completely unable to tear her eyes from the man she thought she knew, who had suddenly become someone completely different.'

Friday Fics Fix - Whose Shield Are You?







'“Ruby was dangerous and it got complicated and that is just the way it was.” Exploded Fitz, trying so desperately to keep calm but feeling his control slipping away. “So I’m sorry if it doesn’t fit with-” Fitz took a breath as his voice thickened and broke, begging for tears not to fall out of frustration, “whatever narrative that you’ve built for yourself.”'

One of the biggest plusses of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, for me at least, is Leopold Fitz.

Played to a point nearing perfection by Iain De Caestecker,  Agent Fitz has gone through pretty much any sh** that this series has to throw at him.

And this series has had a large supply of sh** to throw at him.

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! 😉

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! 😎

I Liked Avengers: Infinity War, But I Didn't LOVE It. Here's Why. (SPOILER FILLED)





Leaving the cinema after watching Avengers: Infinity War, The Bestie turned to me and said:

'Do you get why I said that once you've seen it, you really wanna watch it again, like, straight away?!'





And me, a diehard Marvel fan, who loves the Marvel films 'til the end of the line, said:

'No... not really. It was ok, though.'

Friday Fics Fix - A Long Time Ago, In A Galaxy Far, Far, Away...

I, personally, love the current Star Wars set-up.

There's angst, lightsabers, spaceships and sh**, and a dude with his shirt off - honestly, I don't expect anything beyond that.

(Sorry die-hard Star Wars fans, but let's face it, the stories and dialogue were never what your nostalgia-happy brains purport them to be... Please don't hurt me.)

Friday Fics Fix - Combined Forces

Here we are then, in 2018! And it's time for the first Friday Fics Fix of the year!




Friday Fics Fix title image



In case you don't know (because the internet has a short memory, and also you might be new to Dora Reads - in which case, welcome! Please stay! Lol,) Friday Fics Fix is a weekly post where I recommend (or 'rec') a piece of fanfiction.

Basically, I started this post series because fanfiction totally counts as reading! And it should be completely counted as such! #EffTheSnobs





So with that established, let's take a look at this week's rec!

OK, I have some Star Wars for you this week - which I haven't done before, because while I like Star Wars, it's not like my be-all-and-end-all. And I know people take Star Wars pretty seriously!
