Friday Fics Fix - Bittersweet Loki


'It was impossible.


Don’t let that stop you, O. B. had said.'

I kind of love this fic.

I mean... obviously, because I'm rec'ing, and, also obviously, I tend to say that a lot. But... yeah.

Month In Review(s) - February 2024


February for yours truly wasn't too bad.

...It wasn't great either, tbh. But it's still one of the better months I've had lately, so I'll take it!

Nerd Church - Short Story: Everyone Is Born With A Void

This story was originally published on the Promptly Written publication on Medium, in response to the following prompt from Ravyne Hawke:

Write a story around the following:

— a bottomless pit
— a moment of despair
— a hopeful or hopeless outcome

Warning: this story contains injury imagery, including acid burns, and also centres on mental health issues (depression,) and hopelessness.

Everyone Is Born With A Void

This is Emmeline's.

Friday Fics Fix - Hargreeves(eses) In Their Feelings


'Diego throws the knife with a grunt of frustration. It lands perfectly positioned in the wall.

“Good job,” Luther says dryly. “You killed the wallpaper.”'

Title: F3. Background: kaleidoscopic patterns

One of the extremely few issues I have with The Umbrella Academy (TUA) is that the Hargreeves siblings are so emotionally constipated that we never get to bathe in the angst with them.

Like - I'm talking 'Gerard Way in the video for Ghost of You' style angst-bathing. We don't get much of that, and my emo goblin spaghetti brain would very much like that. *nods sagely*

Nerd Church - Practice Runs and Prototypes

We're so used to seeing our media as the finished product that we rarely think about the component parts...

...the drafts. The demos. The practice runs and prototypes.
