Alex’s IronDad Fic Rec Masterlist

Look friends. I’ve put more work into this fic rec series than I have anything in a long time. And I also realized having a masterlist that links to all of my fic recs could be helpful, especially as we all practice social distancing and/or are under quarantine. So I hope you enjoy! Here are all the fics I’ve rec’d so far! Note that these link to my fic rec posts for that fic, which includes the authors summary and a short review of why I love it and think you should read it.

For those not “in the know” (Don’t blame you. I had to learn this fandom too and this is a FFN thing even if the fics get cross posted to AO3) Spyfest is a weekly fic prompt for a month with voting and all the shenanigans that come with such things there’s also a fic exchange portion but we’ll get to that some other time. So many great stories have come out of it as a whole and in particular the weekly prompts, one shots, of course, but high quality high quality is apparently an Alex Rider fanfic trope based on the fics I’ve read so get used to hearing it. I would love for this fandom to pick up a monthly prompt just because one Spyfest is clearly not enough. 

I digress, today’s fic is from Spyfest 2019 Week 1. The prompt was “A SAS soldier meets the animal he was named after". That week in particular had exceptional quality and I can earnestly rec them all but the winner was Justmcshane’s “Felt My Slow Blood Warm” which explores Alex and Snake’s relationship. It’s not over fluffy or idealized just quiet and simple in the best way. Snake’s fandom blessed trait (pre-TV show) was that he was quiet and a medic. This fic picks that up and runs with it to a degree. It’s a sweet little character study and perfect for a nice lazy Sunday afternoon read or maybe a Monday morning skim between class and meetings, your call.

Special shout out to Dalekchung and others who take their time to organize this and also the other fills from that week particularly “Strays” which is more Ben and Alex fluff that I was mildly afraid to directly rec because I would probably get labeled as having a preference (I don’t, I love all Alex Rider fanfic. All of it and will rec accordingly. The next rec is a throwback and will not involve K Unit or Ben, I swear)

Sigma

So I feel like my next rec is just one of those “everyone knows about them” authors because they have that fic. “Synergy” is one of the “classics” of the fandom for good cause but if you’re sleeping on their other works, you’re really missing out. Sigma has brought us something the fandom needed - Fem!Alex and she’s not just relegated to dealing with Bond. She’s been in the Devil!Verse and even in a fantastic Sentinel AU WIP (my personal fav) as well. Their writing is stunning - evocative and descriptive and very personality driven. That’s not to say there isn’t action and angst but it all stems from the interactions from the characters which makes it that much more meaningful.


I would like to highlight that Fem!Alex is more than just a trope for the stories - she has a very distinct personality in each setting that is lovingly thought out and considers the challenges that she would face as a female in those universes compared to our traditional boy!Alex. Her personality and actions adjust accordingly and it is a breath of fresh air because you can just tell that the author has put a lot of time, effort, thought and heart into considering the implications that just aren’t discussed when it’s a male character.


I should note that the Devil fic can get a hair risqué (nothing explicit, though and it is rated M) but in a very, very tasteful and believable way that is just a natural progression of the dynamic Sigma crafted between them so if that’s not your thing, obey the tags. Just know you’re missing out because the way Sigma weaves together the complex and complicated emotions in that fic is just to die for.
