To celebrate the birthday of Voltron fandom’s most prolific fanfiction writer to date, (with forty-two KeithandAllura canon pair couple stories under her belt at the time of this blogpost), we will choose one story, tweet and add to the list below, throughout the month of July.
Mertz‘s fanfics are varied: from epic-length fic “Origins: a Legend Unfolds” where you read a very strong Allura
to one-off ficlets (perfect for when you’re craving for a quick KA snack).
Her stories can draw out different emotions from the readers: from her hilarious fics such as the “God Help Me” series, to the multi-chaptered hot and spicy KA stories (my favourite’s “The Siren’s Song”) .
And yes, there are those stories that you’d really want to kick Kogane’s arse for hitching his crankypants too high. There are also the ones that you’d cry with Allura (*grabs tissues*) and beat the crap out of Keith for breaking Allura’s heart sooo many times.
(Yes, that different Keith with a deceased fiancee named Beverly *argh* (pulls hair) *eye roll*)
-- sorry folks, I belong to the majority of KA fans who love KA from Voltron 80s cartoons (you know, the original version of Keith and Allura that started our love for KA?) oh, I love the Voltron Force Nicktoons KA version too. *wink*
So, whatever fic you pick, Mertzfics are totally amazing.
To our upcoming author (and hopefully one of the first from the Voltron fandom)
Happy 40th Birthday Mertz!
