snickfic: Spaceman Spiff about to crash his spaceship (mood sf)
[personal profile] snickfic
Ah, summer: that time of year when a young woman's fancy turns to superheroes and space operas. Apparently. This happens to me every year, but not usually quite this emphatically!

I've rewatched GotG a couple of times and have a ton of stuff liked on Tumblr that needs to be queued, and also I'm working my way through almost two years of AO3 fic. This hasn't taken as long as you might think, because there are STILL only 1500 works on AO3, and only 800 that are complete, over 1k, and in English.

So I'm having a delightful time, and now I have some recs!

Drax/Gamora, 1.1k. A quiet, gradually developing relationship between two people who have lost a lot.

4.5k, Drax/Peter. “Are you propositioning me?” / Drax looked relieved. “Yes.” Theoretically a PWP, but with a lot of humor and character stuff in it.

1.1k, Gamora+Nebula, human AU. The fraught sisterly relationship through a different lens. I would read so many more words of this.

1.5k, Gamora/Peter. This is kind of a hard ship to sell me in because of how awkwardly canon tries to set it up, but I am totally sold on this casual, respectful, try-this-and-see version of it. Also has this fantastic moment voyeurism in it, which I didn't think I was even into but which this fic ties into feeling safe and connected. I really, really loved this fic.

1.6k, team gen. A night with the team after a job. Not a lot happens in this vignette, but this author has such a great voice and such a great handle on the character voices that I didn't mind at all.

8.9k, Peter/OCs and team gen. Peter barters his body to a crew of pirates to keep them away from his team; after it's all over and they get away, his team is not ready to just let him pretend like nothing's wrong. The crew of the Milano is maybe not your first choice for post-trauma care, but what they lack in finesse they make up for with bucketloads of sincerity (despite themselves). I really enjoyed how despite what happened to him, Peter gets to spend most of the fic being active and making choices. Very satisfying.
