  2. Summary

    A series of Oneshots about the MCU Maximoffs varying from canon to canon-twisty to outright AU. All focus on the Maximoff twins, and on their relationship, interactions, complexities etc.

    As this is a collection of oneshots this doesn't contain any of my multi-chapter fics: The Cradle of Life, Like Home, And when the stars threw down their spears, the whole Memento Mori series, a blank slate or For Fear and For Vengeance. I do have multiple ideas for fics for the Maximoff twins, so this will probably be updated intermittently forever. Keep an eye out!

    Summary

    He’s had a number of firsts. Virginia Reed, his first crush. Wanda Maximoff, his first kiss. Eve Simon, his first heartbreak. Mandy Fournier, the first girl who said yes when he asked her to dance. And he’s becoming increasingly certain that Sam Wilson is his first love.

    Vision writes a letter each time he has a crush so consuming he can’t forget it. They are tiny pieces of his heart, written out for his eyes only, a way to say goodbye.

    Until the day they’re sent out.

    Summary

    Hermione and Millicent set out on what would optimistically be called a 'wild goose chase' into a dense forest to find some ancient manuscripts that probably decomposed centuries ago. Merlin help them.

    Shockingly good? I never even thought of this ship and its not one which really springs out at me, but the writing is solid and the worldbuilding a delight and I genuinely had a lot of fun with this fic.

    Summary

    This is the first of a series of essays I wish to write on the Gender Politics of Sherlock fandom. There are many things I wanted to say at the official panel but was unable to, since it was derailed by a group of individuals who showed up with the intention of intimidating and harassing the panel moderator. In future essays, I’d like to share my thoughts on femslash, Mary Sues and the fridging of female characters, on heteronormativity in slash, and on queer representation beyond slash (bisexual, pansexual, asexual and trans people in fanworks and fan spaces). I’d like to touch on race and being a queer Woman of Color in a fandom mostly interested in White male characters.

    Before I get to those subjects, however, I feel a need to return to the original intended topic: the essay I began writing on my phone on the plane.

    And that essay is on the subject of noncon fanworks.

    Summary

    “We’re Healers, not Aurors,” Monterys Velaryon says, fear and fright balancing in his cut-glass voice and setting Sansa’s teeth on edge. “We can’t be expected to defend the bloody hospital from Dragonborn.”

    An assault on Saint Mungo's throws the whole world right open, and Sansa finds herself on the fracture lines.

    A beautiful, if painful, tale of trauma with surprising accuracy.
