Friday Fics Fix - Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist... Father







'“Alright kiddie, time for you to open your eyes… you’re really starting to freak me out.” he tapped Peters cheek lightly. “C’mon lets see those brown eyes, I know you got them.”

After another minute of face tapping and Tony hyperventilating, Peter opened his bloodshot, unfocused eyes, and gazed blearily up at his mentor.'





Let's indulge in the cuteness of Tony Stark being a parent-figure to Peter Parker this week, shall we?

Because I really wanted him to be more fatherly and less of a hypocritical douche in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

And because Tom Holland as Peter Parker is the right mix of cute, awkward, and awesome.

Friday Fics Fix - Your Pal. Your Bucky.







'Bucky went town to town, dance hall to dance hall, picking up women despite his dull dancing shoes. His smile made up for it. He took Steve to the local ones, but he always danced away into the crowd. Bucky loved to dance.

Loved.
 
Back then Bucky loved a lot of things.'

What, did you really think that we'd reach the end of Pride Month (aka June,) without me rec'ing you some Stucky?! No way!

(Fangirling notes:

Rec'ing is recommending.

Stucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers (Captain America) - aka the relationship that Marvel needs to give us immediately.)

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! 😉

Friday Fics Fix - Lady Love







'Ava stops and stares. There is Sara Lance, trained assassin and former vigilante, face down on her desk drooling. When Sara snorts and a little drool bubble forms at the corner of her mouth, Ava has to slap her hand over her mouth to keep from laughing out loud.'

Sara Lance, former Black Canary, current White Canary, general bad-a**, assassin, and time-ship captain; an amazing hero.

She's awesome. She's also a Bisexual lady with an open preference for the ladies over the dudes. 

She leads the way for Queer rep. in the Arrowverse (that's all the CW's DC superhero shows.)

I would also very much like to marry her, or maybe the actress Caity Lotz who plays her. Either is fine by me.

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! 😎

Friday Fics Fix - An Unlikely Friendship










"Nah." Peter is holding Ned's ankles, and every time Coach Jones walks by Ned does a half hearted push-up. "He gave me peanuts and told me he wasn't dead? I think he's lonely."

Every so often, a fic drops into your lap that you weren't expecting.

And I love that feeling. I love it. Not least because it becomes less common as you become more familiar with fanfiction.

I value that reminder that fanfiction can still surprise me! 😊

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 - Just Your Resident Mildly Evil Demigod... and His Lover







'Tony wasn’t sure who’d be unhappier: the team when they found out he was sleeping with their resident mildly evil demigod, or Loki when he found out that Tony would be late for their dinner date on account of being buried alive.'







Yes, that is a quote from this week's fic. Yes, it is awesome.

In my defence, I haven't rec'd FrostIron in ages! I've held myself back for a remarkably long time 😉

Comics Wrap-Up - We Really Are Ants Now

I saw Avengers: Infinity War! I'm hoping to post a discussion-type-thing/random fangirlish thoughts next week - assuming I can keep a schedule for once! 😉



'Til then, let's see what I've got for ya this week:
