Lubricus Fannish COVID Survival Part 1
Like many fans around the world, the Lubricus Con Com is sheltering in place experiencing this weird new reality that COVID-19 has brought upon us. Self care is extremely important during times like this and in addition to taking long bubble baths and snuggling with our pets, we’re also reading fic! We thought it would be fun to share some of the fics that are helping us get through this trying time...
Con Com Reccer: saladbats
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe (Bucky/Steve)
Why You Love It: I love well-crafted AUs. And this is a lovely slow burn with mythical being and adventure and adventure and escaping captivity. With the added bonus of lovely illustrations to accompany the tale.
Your Name: treewishes
Fic: No run-of-the-mill talk jive
Fandom: Car Talk (NPR)/Good Omens (Neil Gaiman)
Why You Love It: This is an utterly crackfic crossover, but does both fandoms equal justice. And it’s so perfect! I mean, “what do you do when you’re driving your vintage Bentley and then suddenly it is, through no fault of your own, on fire?” Kind of a metaphor for these end times, isn’t it?
Con Com Reccer: DJ/Djin7
Fic: The Sun King Trilogy (2/3 published*)
Author(s): Jaywalker_Holmes, Treef
Fandom: Módào Zǔshī - Mòxiāng Tóngxiù (Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation) aka The Untamed (TV), Módào Zǔshī (Cartoon) Pairing: (Canon) Lán Zhàn | Lán Wàngjī/Wèi Yīng | Wèi Wúxiàn
Why You Love It: Once more, with feeling. A massive Fixit of epic proportions; anyone who is a fan of this xianxia novel/series/cartoon, etc series knows just how much suffering the main characters go through, the source material is deliciously angsty and equally hot. But what if? What if they didn't have to suffer *quite as much*... just only to the edge, but not *over* (if you get my meaning!). These writers take it to some pretty crazy edges, but it's a great Ctrl*Alt*Del. *It's a WiP, but quite meaty, and the authors last updated in February, 2020.
Update on the Con: As of today, we’re still planning to hold Lubricus 2020 so if you think you’d like a convention fix in October sign up via the Registration Page. Please note that you can cancel your reservation any time before September 29, 2020 per our Attendance and Cancellation Policy. We’ll of course be monitoring the global health situation and will be sending updates about the con as we get closer to the dates.
