With our emotionally (physically, mentally) draining Big Bang stories written and submitted last week, plus all the personal and professional changes coming in the near future for Team Collective, I figured a few, well timed kitten!fics full of fluff and sweet and NO ANGST might be necessary. I couldn’t pick a ship, so we are visiting 3 this week.

1) Johnlock

Title: Can’t Say No

Author: cold_feet

Characters: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson

Word Count: 1111


The author’s description: John comes out of the kitchen brandishing a package of HobNobs. “Sherlock, if you think I’m going to mind after her, you, whatever it is you’re growing in the fridge, plus one of those–” In which Sherlock and John have a daughter. And kittens, apparently.

My Thoughts:

Kittens, babies and domestic Johnlock? Yes, please sir, may I have another? Thanks to my dear Collectress, who shared with me this most adorable Johnlock kitten!fic when she knew I needed it.

Hello class and welcome back to Shipping 101!

Today, we are going to board a new slash ship of mine–Stucky. This pairing has impressed itself upon my heart and has been gaining momentum since I experienced the wonder that is Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Now, I’ve been taught by the dear Admiral herself, the first rule of shipping is DO NOT SINK SOMEONE ELSE’S SHIP (which is why she and I don’t discuss Doctor Who ships or, apparently, Captain America slash). Yes, you may have your opinions and your preferences, but they don’t have to be mine and vice versa. I promise not to write a manifesto about Stucky if you promise not to force your ships into my harbor, so to speak.

That means, if you don’t like it, don’t read it, simple as that.


“Stucky” is a slash ship pairing between Steve Rogers aka Captain America (Chris Evans) and his lifelong companion and friend, Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). While I do not claim to be a Marvel comic book aficionado, I am a Marvel movie fan. My appreciation for the films has caused me to explore the Marvel Universe through cosplay, film and even develop an interest in the comics–although I am wary of attempting to go through 70+ years of comics just to prove myself worthy to talk about Marvel. Still–and trust me I’ve heard it already–I DO recognize that this beautiful ship is NOT canon according to the comics (although, I beg to differ in terms of the films).

And you know what? I don’t care.
