Thursday recs: fic for spooky canons

Another Thursday, another recs post! This time I was delighted to have picked up enough recs for spooky canons to make a post.

Sunless Skies
A Visitation: Your Aunt by [ profile] CandlesInTheWell
The Inconvenient Aunt, gen, 2k. Do you even have an aunt? This was written for the prompt "Eldritch abomination aunts," and it is indeed an utterly delightful mix of cosmic horror, inability to trust one's senses, and familial relations. I think you can probably read this one without any canon knowledge.

The Ritual (2017)
If at First by [ profile] Rivine
Hutch/Luke, Luke/Moder, 500 words. Speaking of not being able to trust your senses, this is a very efficient little ficlet of canon-divergent mindfuckery.

Black Spot | Zone Blanche
And the Horned God Makes Four by [ profile] Rivine
Laurene/Teddy Bear/Siriani, 3k. This is threesome sex pollen the Villenfranche way, which means with a pervading sense of unknowable foreboding as experienced by characters with an extremely pragmatic approach to the whole thing. Great voices, great moody atmosphere, and the sex is hot. A++ all around. (NB I haven't finished the series yet, so no spoilers in comments here, please.)

We Die Like Fen 2 - fic I wrote

We Die Like Fen had a second and final round, and I signed up this time! As opposed to last time, when I gave and received fic without signing up. Totally different. My one regret in this exchange is that I had the opportunity to write about Gemma Chan for three of my four assignments, and only managed to write her for one. And that one wasn't even Minn-Erva! Oh, well.

Crazy Rich Asians (2018): sail away, sail away, sail away - Rachel/Astrid, 1.5k. After Nick breaks up with her, Rachel goes on their honeymooon anyway, and Astrid is a surprise visitor. I shipped the hell out of this ship from about the midway point in the movie, and it was fun to finally get a chance to write it. Reading this, you might well come away with the impression that my entire conception of a luxury vacation is an infinity pool, and you wouldn't be wrong.

MCU: red and white (all over) - Bucky/Shuri, 700 words. Femdom. Bucky can't quite trust himself with his new arm; Shuri has an idea for how to help. I absolutely fucking love the conceit for this, and this fic really needed to be like 15k, but it was a flash exchange, so instead it's just this ficlet.

MCU: Is This Cost or Is It Reward - Gamora/Nebula, 2.6k. Several years after Gamora ran away, Nebula stumbles across her hooking on a random planet. I've been wanting to write Gamora/Nebula hookerfic for years; I am not really sure this is the hookerfic I wanted to write. IDK. I have very mixed feelings about this one. It has lots of bits I like, but I'm not sure I like what they add up to? My recip was really happy with it, though.
