Friday Fics Fix - This Is Legends


'An alarm was blaring, and once Nate came to his senses he realized he was standing outside a bank, holding a sack full of money.'

I'm still mourning for my beloved Legends of Tomorrow (LoT) after it's beautiful batsh**tery was cancelled a mere few weeks ago 

*Swoons on ye olde timey fainting couch*

(...I have no idea where that came from - let's just keep moving... 😅)

Friday Fics Fix - For Stucky Purposes


'He promised more details when they weren’t running for their lives, and Bucky was damn well going to hold him to that. Because this kind of stuff didn’t just happen to people.'

One of the many, many, things I love about fanfiction is the breadth of the writing.

Fanfic writers are as varied and diverse a group as you're likely to find - which means the range of the stuff they write is incredible.

...which, while all 100% true, is something I'm bringing up here because I'm rationalising bringing you a fic from the same fandom two weeks in a row 😅

But - BUT! - this fic is so different to last week's that it feels like they're from different fandoms entirely!

(...and if that still didn't convince you, then I'll remind you that it's my blog, so I get pick the fanfiction 😅)

Month in Review(s) - April 2022


April was rough, mental health-wise.

I'm OK - just having to adapt and take care.

...It's kind of worse when there's no real reason or trigger because there's nothing you can blame, y'know?

'April - Ebrill' with a fancy woman with an umbrella, it's all very artsy. Also sorry for the mess your screen-reader's probably made of the Welsh

...and it really doesn't help that the pollen this year is exceptionally, brutally, high, so my hayfever is extra-present this year.

Kind of hard to focus on your mental health when the pollen is making you feel like a zombie, lol.

(Oh, and hayfever is linked to climate change. #TrueStory.)

Friday Fics Fix - 100% A Thing That John Constantine Would Do

'B-Eazy: do we tell her

is it like an invasion of privacy

Ava Sharpe: This entire team is an invasion of privacy.'

I had a lot of Legends of Tomorrow (LoT) feelings this week...

...because it was CANCELLED! Argh!

I love this show. I'ma miss it so much - it's one of my faves dammit!!!! 😭

Friday Fics Fix - FrostIron Schmoop (Don't Judge Me!)

'“You mortals are truly horrendous at naming constellations.”'

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

This week's fanfiction is short and sweet.

I fully admit it - this be schmoopy af.

No angst as far as the eye can see. (...Which is highly unusual with me involved, obviously 😅)

Friday Fics Fix - Another SamBucky Rec List!


It's been a little while since my first SamBucky rec list - so I thought I'd bring you some more of the shippy goodness!

(Fandom notes:

SamBucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes from the MCU (Marvel) movies etc., especially the Captain America movies, and the The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) TV series.

Shippy = related to ships.

Ships are relationships between two or more characters.)

As always with this kind of list, the Content Warnings will be in the original rec'ing post, which I'll link to.

Also pay attention to the fic author's tags on the fics themselves, and generally take care, dearest nerdlets!

(You can also check the rec'ing posts for whether the fics have SPOILERS or not.)

Friday Fics Fix - Loki Gets His A** Kidnapped


'“So that’s why I’m here?” Loki asked. “You think that I’ve become soft?”'

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

I love this MCU fic - it's so much fun.

So this is FrostIron - kinda - and verging on crack - but not all the way there. 

It's really comic-booky - the action is something I could imagine in a graphic novel, and the whole *waves hands* ...vibe feels like it belongs in the panels of a comic book.

Not least because we're dealing with Dr Doom and MODOK - stock comics villains, after all, and pretty common go-tos for fic authors who need villains that aren't embroiled in the main MCU continuity.

Friday Fics Fix - Magical-Shenanigans-Related Food Poisoning


'John’s gotten sick in plenty of bars, but he’s almost sure that this is the first time alcohol hasn’t been involved.'


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

Ah, John Constantine.

A moody, broody, British Bisexual warlock and master of the occult, who's a character in my beloved Arrowverse show Legends of Tomorrow? And is played by a Welsh actor (Matt Ryan)?

Yeah, if you know me at all, you know that I had zero chance to resist.

Friday Fics Fix - Surprisingly Wholesome SamBucky


'“Nothing happened.”

“You only had one hotel bill,” Rhodey pressed.'


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

Want some SamBucky where Sam doesn't realise they're even a couple?

Want it to come in the form of a fic which, despite the sexting (or near enough to,) is surprisingly wholesome?

Of course ya do! 😉😅
