Fic recs, 6/29 (Moon Knight, sometimes with other Marvel crossovers)

  • Moon Knight | Marc/Steven/Layla | M | devil’s advocate
    “I just think,” Layla continues, even as Marc dramatically rolls his eyes (at both of them), “it’s sort of rude to leave poor Stevie out.”

  • Moon Knight | Marc/Steven/Layla | M | we breathe together
    Taweret cleared her throat. “And will you be able to…complete your…transaction in five minutes?”

    Steven reddened. “I believe so, yes.” It made Layla’s heart beat a little faster as she watched his anticipatory flush.

  • Moon Knight | Layla/Marc/Steven, Khonshu | T | The Glimpses of the Moon
    Layla El-Faouly is just a girl, standing in front of a boy, and another boy, who is, for certain purposes, the same boy, and a shouty moon god, asking most of them to love her. Sometimes, they all do it at once.
    series:moon knight,pairing:marc_steven_layla,trope:polyamory,fic:one-shot
  • Moon Knight | Steven/Harrow, Ammit | T | To Set an Example
    In the aftermath of Ammit’s victory, her avatar deserves reward for his loyalty and labor. It is Harrow’s desire to bring new life into their peaceful world— with Ammit’s approval.

  • Moon Knight | Marc/Steven | M | Dream Run
    They escape the psychiatric ward on a Thursday afternoon. The sky is downcast, and there’s a cool breeze in the air.
    series:moon knight,pairing:marc_steven,fic:one-shot,trope:hurt-comfort
  • Moon Knight | Marc/Steven | M | So it’s sex, then?
    “Nothing’s changed, Steven,” Marc said. The bastard almost sounded amused. “Don’t torture yourself. I’ve always been here.”

    Steven comes to terms with his lack of privacy.
    series:moon knight,pairing:marc_steven,fic:one-shot,kink:weird.sex

  • Moon Knight | Marc/Steven, Marc/Khonshu | M | Can’t escape your desire.
    Khonshu silently watches over his avatar, this one in particular, the last of the three that he has not defiled, sleeping restless with a guilty lust, his mind yearning for Marc and only Marc, a need so potent that he can’t even fantasize about anyone else. Steven Grant has a hidden desire that no one can fulfill.

  • Moon Knight | Jake, Khonshu, fish | G | One Condition.
    Jake had to front in that final battle, since everyone else were getting their asses kicked. Khonshu was impressed by him and so asked to take up the Moon Knight mantle. That worked for him, so Jake agreed.

    That was, once Khonshu fulfilled one condition for Steven.

  • Moon Knight | Gus & MK team | G | Life Has Differents
    Gus 2.0 is a goldfish. Goldfish are not smart, but he likes to think he can think. He gets adopted by a man with differents and has some philosophical thoughts about life.

Fic recs, 6/22 (yep, it’s all Moon Knight again)

  • Moon Knight | Marc, Steven, Khonshu | T | with roses red come lilies white
    Marc originally sets up the phone line to help keep tabs on Steven whenever he was too tired to crawl his way into consciousness and pay attention–but he can only listen to Steven beg for his Mum to talk back for so long until he has to do something about it.

    OR: Marc Spector takes “reparenting yourself” literally.
    series:moon knight,genfic,pairing:marc_steven,trope:hurt-comfort

  • Moon Knight | Layla(/Marc), Frenchie | G | moments from a voicemail box
    Hey Marc, uh—I’m starting to worry? You said you would be out of contact for 2 weeks, and that you’d be back on the 16th. It’s been two days—it’s not like you to not check-in. If you’ve gotten yourself killed so help me I will murder you.

    Please call me when you get this.
    series:moon knight,pairing:layla_marc,fic:one-shot,amazing,trope:hurt-comfort

  • Moon Knight | Steven, Layla, Jake | G | Better Than I Know Myself
    Steven and Layla have a conversation about where he’s been for all that time, but digging into Steven’s own distorted view of his life brings out a whole new side of his personality…[Written between episodes 3 and 4]
    series:moon knight,fic:one-shot,genfic,trope:amnesia
  • Moon Knight | Layla/Marc, Layla/Steven, kid | T | with you (both)
    She hasn’t been home in ten years, and she misses Cairo’s summers, as hot and humid as they are. It’s a welcome change from gloomy London, and, in any case, she’s needed here.

Fic recs, 6/15 (I’d say multifandom but it’s all Moon Knight)

  • Moon Knight | Marc, Steven, Jake, Khonshu | T | a moment of peace
    In which Steven tries to make good on his promise to never give Marc a moment of peace for what he did; in which Marc attempts to explain their DID to Steven; in which Khonshu ominously perches on airplane wings; in which Jake Lockley makes a brief cameo as head of the Steven Grant Protection Squad; and in which Marc reflects on his history at least a little bit.
    series:moon knight,genfic,fic:one-shot,trope:amnesia
  • Moon Knight | Steven, Jake, Marc, Ammit | M | The White Room
    Jake glances over at the passenger seat to make sure Steven’s buckled up before hitting the accelerator. He keeps one hand on the wheel, one hand on the emergency brake to keep from drifting too much in the sand. His trusty cab had seen a lot in Marc’s headspace, but filling Chicago to the brim with sand was asking almost too much.
    series:moon knight,genfic,trope:hurt-comfort,fic:one-shot
  • Moon Knight | Steven, Marc, Khonshu | T | How To Care For An Egyptian Moon God
    He watched as Marc roughed the criminal up, stomping his face repeatedly but not killing them. Not carving a crescent moon onto their flesh so their body would be sacrificed to him. So he could feed on it.

    “Feed me” he whispered, watching as Marc continued to ignore him.

    “Ill give you a sandwich when we get home” Marc replied sarcastically, dodging a bullet.
    series:moon knight,genfic,fic:one-shot

  • Moon Knight | Khonshu, Marc | T | The killing moon
    When it comes right down to it, Marc believes in Khonshu. He might not like him, might not always agree with him, but there is faith there, between the two of them, on both sides. It’s not the worst thing he’s ever tried to believe in.
    series:moon knight,fic:one-shot,genfic
  • Moon Knight | Marc/Steve/Layla | G | Some Assembly Required
    “So . . . why does Steven have all these postcards from his- well, your mom?”

    In which Marc finally opens up, even the littlest bit, and finds it’s not as hard as he’d thought it would be.

Insert your own “SELLcius” joke here

Welp, we’re having another banner week in the crypto world, huh?

These are links I’ve been picking up over the past month or two. They go up to the Luna “we have a token that will always be worth US$1 because of Algorithms(TM), what could go wrong?” crash, but nothing yet from the Celsius “we are not a bank, because banks are Bad and we are Good, so we don’t need all those silly regulations that banks have to follow, and oops now we’re freezing everyone’s ability to withdraw your tokens” crash.

The first Patreon Creator Census has a lot of broad strokes you probably could’ve guessed, but it’s nice to see the specifics broken down. Especially when they break stuff out by “what field is the creator in?”

Creators overwhelmingly hate crypto, btw. Patreon tries to downplay it by breaking out the fields that hate it least…but that also reveals that visual artists hate it the most. You know, the field where crypto has made the biggest and hardest pitch for how useful it is? Second-most hate comes from the writers (the fields where the journalists are), and third-most comes from the game developers (the field where crypto has made the second-biggest push).

“As talk of “the metaverse” grows, and people float [NFT] theories about owning items and cosmetic skins and being able to take between games, interest in what that means practically for gamers has lead to a wild array of theories, but they’re largely pushed by people who know nothing about game development. So, as a developer, it falls to people like me who live and work in these spaces to share our knowledge.” (Link is just one article, but the whole blog is worth a read.)

[US] Political donations from the sector surged to more than $26 million during 2021 and the first three months of this year. That influx of cash is outpacing spending by internet giants, drug makers and the defense industry — providing a fresh pool of financing for candidates heading into November’s congressional elections.”

Ms. Blackburn consolidated many Bitcoin addresses, which might have seemed to represent many miners, into few. She pieced together a catalog of agents and concluded that, in those first two years, 64 key players — some of whom were the community’s “founders,” as the researchers called them — mined most of the Bitcoin that existed at the time.”

“All [interviewees] had similar testimonials about putting their faith in an asset they thought was stable and losing everything. Muhammad, a 30-year-old from Egypt, said that he learned about Luna from YouTubers who said that it would reach $1,000. He bought 1,000 tokens at $88. One token is now currently worth less than $0.0002.

“[The article] uncritically repeated many questionable or entirely fallacious arguments from cryptocurrency advocates, and it appears that no experts on the topic were consulted, or even anyone with a less-than-rosy view on crypto. This is grossly irresponsible. Here, a group of around fifteen cryptocurrency researchers and critics have done what the New York Times apparently won’t.”
