Friday Fics Fix - Bucky Angst (I Regret Nothing)

 

'Sam’s hand hovers near his arm again, just in the corner of his eye. Just in case he collapses without warning or something. Bucky hates that he has to bite his tongue and accept that as a legitimate probability'

This week's fic appealed to my emo goblin spaghetti-brain. 

I regret nothing.

Comics Wrap-Up - Keep Making Trouble 'Til You Find What You Love

 

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


It's Thursday, I'm still writing 2021 instead of 2022 on a regular basis, this is Dora Reads, so let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

Everything I have you this week comes under the 'Other Stuff' category. Again. #BlameLoki

Month In Review(s) - December 2021

 

December had Christmas - and therefore was de facto awesome.

I don't make the rules (well, not all of them.)

(I love Christmas. So. Much.)

As I usually do in December, I scaled back on blogging a bit

 - although I decided to keep going with my Comics Wrap-Up posts this year so that I could ramble on about Hawkeye, because I am Marvel trash.

So that's the reason there's so few posts this month.

I usually try to use the time when I'm posting less to schedule and organise and all that jazz. Key word is 'try' - but there's points for trying, right? 😉

Friday Fics Fix - Magical Shenanigans With Tony and Loki

 

'“My guess is it’s got something to do with serotonin,” he says.

“Or magic,” Loki points out.

“Don’t spoil my fun, dear.”'

Let's start 2022 as we mean to go on: 

...with Gay superhero fanfiction. 😅😘

Friday Fics Fix - Loki Angst Time! (Woo!)

 

'Thor was… strangely prone to crying lately, which Loki didn’t appreciate but had to endure nonetheless.'

Angst time! Angst time! Time to have an angst fest! 😅

...I'm random, but ya love it 😜

Friday Fics Fix - Knit Together

 

'Slowly, Klaus’ scarf begins to take shape. It’s a little wonky in places, the occasional stitch has been dropped, the loops are not very neat - but he’s improving with time.'

The Umbrella Academy (TUA) fic time again!!! Woo!

And yes, as you've probably guessed, this fic is firmly front-and-centred on m'boy Klaus Hargreeves.

Friday Fics Fix - Any Port (Cabin) In A Storm


'“So let me see if I’ve got this straight. You think a witch has lured us here to her cabin so she can fatten us up with fast food, then kill us and eat us for Sunday brunch?”

Sam blinks. “Yes?”'

Not entirely sure what I just read...

But then, reading the author's note... they're not entirely sure what they just wrote either - so at least we're all on the same page!

This is a The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) SamBucky fic. Because this is my blog, and I choose the fics. 😎😅


(Fandom notes: SamBucky is the name of a sexual and/or romantic relationship between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes from the MCU (Marvel movies etc.))

Friday Fics Fix - Frosted Fears

 

'The flicker catches, spreads, a surge of certainty that this, all of this, is wrong, that there’s something missing, as though he’s been looking at everything through a blur, like the heat-haze above an open fire, ever shifting and obscuring the truth.

Tony grabs Loki by the collar, shoves him, not nearly as hard as he’s capable of, but hard enough.'

It's been a surprisingly long time since I rec'd FrostIron.

It's time to rectify that 😉


(Fandom notes: FrostIron is a sexual and/or romantic relationship between Tony Stark and Loki from the Marvel movies. After the initial 'WTF?' you will realise that it actually makes a lot of sense.)

Friday Fics Fix - What If Zemo Was In the Zombie Apocalypse (With Bucky)?

 

'...he smiled, apparently amused. “The apocalypse seems to make for strange bedfellows. A Sokovian Baron and a Winter Soldier walk into a bar.”'


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


Due to the current vastness of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU - the Marvel movies) sometimes it can be difficult to explain where, within the sprawling fandom and its sub-fandoms, fan-created content fits in.

This week's fic is mostly based on the Marvel's What If..? zombies episode, but also reaches into the main continuity, and hoiks out Zemo, dropping him into the zombie-ness so that he can play too.

While Zemo was present in Captain America: Civil War, he really came into his own in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS.) Civil War has happened in this universe (or at least, the fic author presumes,) but TFATWS hasn't.
