Welcome to Fanfic Friday, everyone! This week we have Runaway fic recs; I am finishing up watching Runaways on Hulu. So, I thought what a perfect time to fic rec some fics for the fandom. Let’s get started!


1. she really knows how to make you cry (when she gives you these ocean eyes)

By: 
Summary: Nico realizes she actually likes Karolina and becomes aware of how much she means to her. In-depth exploration of Nico’s feelings on 1×09 and 1×10 Deanoru scenes and little off-screen moments.
Rating: General, F/F

2. Defiance

By: 
Summary: Can you outrun your parents? Starts when they are kids. Similar premise to the show, key differences being 1) Tina showed Nico the staff and taught her how to use it when she was a kid and 2) Jonah doesn’t exist because I hate that guy. Nico/Karolina centric.

3. of campfires and marshmallow kisses

By: 
Summary: Karolina’s ready for whatever her summer job will throw at her. Homesick kids, lice infestations, dining hall food, whatever. But it turns out she’s not ready for her beautiful co-counselor, with her long black hair and dark makeup and teasing smiles. She’s got her new friend, Gert, to confide in, but Gert’s pretty busy dealing with a crush of her own. It’s going to be a long summer.

4. Skeletons

Words: 5295

5. Sleepover

By: 
Summary: Nico and Karolina had been best friends for what felt like forever. It seemed like nothing could change that when Karolina stumbled upon Nico with another guy at a party. The feelings that crashed over her had made her realize some pretty big things about herself – and now she’d stupidly invited the object of her affections over for a sleepover. How was she supposed to get through this night with her sanity intact?

Words: 4297

6. calling me up, so late at night (are we just friends?)

By: 
Summary: Based on Hayley Kiyoko’s “Curious” MV. Nico keeps on coming onto Karolina even though she is with Alex.

Words: 2914

7. Through It All

By: 
Summary: AU, no powers or pride; Chase’s family moves to Los Angeles when he’s just in kindergarten, where he meets Alex, Nico, Karolina, and maybe most importantly, Gert. As the group grows up, feelings can be hard to avoid and secrets can be even more difficult to keep. But maybe if they stick together they can get through it all.

10. if you say it with your hands

By: 
Summary: They need Gert’s anxiety medication. They need that, and sunscreen for Nico, and shaving cream and razors for the guys, and tampons and pads for the girls, and probably some form of therapy for every single one of them to deal with the aching emptiness that’s slowly wrapping around them as they get lonelier and lonelier.
