comics fic recs

calm me down, get it out by defcontwo - Marvel comics
Natasha/Yelena, 4.5k. Fake marrieds, except it's for SPY reasons and instead of being rom-commy it's all prickly and hot and great. Yelena here is all bite and teeth, as she should be.

Before You Command by originally
Prince Robot IV, 1k. This captures IV's fractured mind so, so well. Him wanting to get fucked by moonies is such a pitch-perfect character detail.

Your Mother [vid] by [profile] ghostlingering
Alana + Hazel, 1.5 mins. I'm always impressed to see what vidders can do with still media like comics panels. This was great.

Day by Day by [personal profile] sholio
Gwendolyn+Sophie+Lying Cat, 2k. In the aftermath of Book 3/issue #18, Gwendolyn and Sophie start putting the pieces back together. I love the quiet ups and downs of Sophie and Lying Cat's friendship, everyone's general inability to cook, Sophie whose housekeeping skills don't extend to laundry, Gwendolyn who forgets to feed Lying Cat, Lying Cat who says that cookies are fine for cats. Just delightful.

femslash recs

I continue to try and work through my backlog of recs. It turns out I have a bunch of femslash recs in fandoms I otherwise don't read much in or don't have any other recs for, so here's a bunch of them!

Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
The Part of Her Hair by scioscribe
Mary Bennett/OFC, 10.5k. This fic does such a good job painting the picture of a Mary who's still awkward, but cognizant of it now, which just makes her more aware of how lacking most of her family is in terms of companionship. But she's also trying so hard to be good and not-awkward! And succeeding sometimes!

Game of Thrones
How Sweet, Too Sweet, Too Bitter Sweet by celestialskiff
Brienne/Margaery, 4k. Captures all the contrasts between them - Brienne's roughness and Margaery's courtly manners, Brienne who can take her armor off and is exactly who she seems through and through versus Margaery, who is layers upon layers.

Keep the Bouquets, Throw Away the Grooms by Netgirl_y2k
Sansa/Margaery, 3k. The Lannisters meant it as an insult when they arranged the marriage of Sansa Stark to Margaery Tyrell. But is it truly an insult if nobody is insulted? AKA the f/f arranged marriage fic that made me crave f/f arranged marriages fics. Brief but delightful.

Saga (Comic)
Runs in the Family by originally
Gwendolyn/The Brand, 200 words. A brief snippet of a potential ship, including some headcanon that so closely aligns with my own that it took me a while after reading to remember that it wasn't made explicit in the text.

Gilmore Girls
Boston Marriage by Jae
Rory/Paris, 5k. Paris proposes marriage, of a sort. Rory takes a while to coming around to accepting. A fandom classic and deservedly so. Very fun character voices.

Strange Empire
Four Gifts by sanguinity
Rebecca Blithely/Kat Loving, 7k. Kat Loving gave Rebecca four gifts. They are the most precious things in Rebecca's life. A lovely slow-burn.

Original Fic
The Haunts of Daily Life by tristesses
Lesbian Superhero/Lesbian Supervillain, 19k. Tropey femslashy goodness, fairly light-hearted and good fun.

Like the Knight Loves the Queen by scioscribe
Female Mob Moss/Female Advisor, 3k. But what 3000 words they are. This noirish 1950s piece doesn't have a ton of explicit sex in it, and is somehow all the more sexual for it. Great narrative voice and STEAMY AS HELL.

Come to Me by Moonlight by RecessiveJean
Regency Lady/Crossdressing Regency Lady. Veronica always had an inkling she might one day be waylaid by a dashing highwayman, so she rehearsed herself accordingly. She had not anticipated, however, that any girl could look quite so fine in a hat. Silly and delightful.

Art
Inappropriate Use of Inquisition Assets by serenitfalls
Dragon Age, Dalish/Skinner, NSFW. Delicious.

Inspiration by lostphysics
Original work, Female Ukiyo-e Artist/Female Kitsune, NSFW. BDSM+bondage. *fire emoji*

pinned, unravelled by lostphysics
Crimson Peak, Edith/Lucille, NSFW. Love the colors in this.

YT reveals! - Stranger Things, Saga

As of December 23, I was sure that I wasn't going to manage to submit anything to the collection this year, but then on Christmas Eve I saw a signup on the pinch hitter prompts post that somehow got the gears moving, and so I wrote some Steve/Nancy/Jonathan for Stranger Things, a ship I'd been wanting to write ever sine I first saw the show.

objects in the mirror - Stranger Things, Steve/Nancy/Jonathan, 2.5k
Jonathan has no fucking idea why Nancy and Steve gave him the Nikon. He doesn't know why they're so insistent on seeing the pictures he takes, either.

And then an hour before Madness opened I got an idea for a Saga drabble. So, at final count, I managed TWO fics in the YT collection! \o/

if you want to tell the news, you have to fucking live - Saga, Upsher/Doff, drabble
Love on the battlefield. (A meet-cute.)

Rare Pair Fest rec - SAGA NOIR AU

Guys, I finally got a chance to read my rarepairfest, fic, and it is AMAAAAAZING. It is The Honey Trap, and it is 1800 words of Stalk/Brand via Raymond Chandler, where The Brand is our gumshoe and The Stalk is that bad idea that keeps coming back. The voices are FANTASTIC, and the xeno sex is hot, and I am so happy.

If you're into Saga at all, you have to read.

Thanks to Rachel and Miles (it's a great podcast, you should try it), I am now reading comics again after a mostly-hiatus of six months or so. So, current state of affairs:

FIC: the legs on that dame

Fic written for the Everywoman exchange. I finally managed to write a little Brand/Stalk noir! More or less! I feel like the ending is really weak, but :PPP

On the plus side, my recip liked it and pointed out what an excellent piano player The Stalk would surely be in a jazz bar of some kind, and just, EEEEE YES PLEASE.

Dear Rarepair Fest Creator

General things I like: psychological horror, existential horror, weird plants, creepy ruins, creepy weird landscapes, body horror, amnesia. Kink negotiation, body appreciation, touching and teasing, xeno kink, women in charge, watersports, enemas, stuffing/belly kink (those last three are my kink trifecta; feel free to consider any of them as prompts for any of these fandoms!). A/B/O, tentacles, wingfic, steampunk vibes, mpreg. (I really love mpreg.)

General things I don’t like / DNW: sexual violence or threats thereof; gore for the sake of gore; death of the POV character; trauma to eyes, hands, or teeth. Larger person physically dominating smaller one, comeplay, non-con, D/s-type punishment. Infidelity, first-person POV, crossovers (exceptions noted).

comics short thoughts

Ms Marvel through #12 - I feel like I missed an issue in there? #10 maybe? This is as cute as ever, although the Loki issue was the definition of filler.

The Wicked + the Divine through #8 - I feel like I missed an issue here, too. Also, am I supposed to be doing outside research? Because I am getting more and more lost among the pantheon. I have no idea what happened in this issues, basically, and I'm not sure how much longer McKelvie's pencils and Wilson's colors are going to tide me over.

Black Widow through #14 - this is fine? This is fine. We're gearing up to a confrontation with Chaos, finally, thank goodness.

Ody-C through #2 - I have broken up with this comic. Yes, at issue 2. I was so excited for "genderswapped Odyssey" and Fraction killed that enthusiasm dead in one. fell. swoop.

Saga through #25 - EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE. /o\ Except the dragon hunt; that's going pretty okay so far. (I'm side-eyeing that "swelled head" comment something fierce, though.)
