    Summary

    “It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it. Millions are condemned to a stiller doom than mine, and millions are in silent revolt against their lot. Nobody knows how many rebellions ... ferment in the masses of life which people earth.”

    This is my first exhibit when people say that ABO is inherently problematic. Brilliant use of the genre for political commentary, but also an amazing story.

    Summary

    “Are you eating Biscoff with a spoon right out of the jar?...” Yurio asked in disgust.
    “Yurio, you get to judge my eating habits when you are eight months pregnant, and not a day before,” Victor said in a dangerously sweet voice.
    “You know I'm an alpha,” Yurio spat back, “I can't get pregnant, thank fuck.”
    “Well I guess that means you'll never get to judge me then, doesn't it?” Victor smiled, licking his spoon again.
    Otabek put his hand on Yurio's shoulder before he could reply, shaking his head.
    “Remember what happened the last time you made him cry.”
    “That wasn't my fault!” Yurio scowled, crossing his arms, “He's hormonal!”
    “It matters less whose fault it really is, and more whose fault Yuuri thinks it is...” Otabek countered.
    The quick glance Yurio gave toward the kitchen belied exactly who the real head alpha of their loosely forming pack was.
    Victor smiled and went back to his snack.

    Summary

    The entire hockey team falters, faced by Katsuki's dark eyes shaded by his inky eyelashes. It's very effective. Mila's going to find out what mascara he uses.

    "Did - did someone pull a prank on you?" says Katsuki. His Russian isn't terrible, but between his soft voice and his frankly adorable accent, half-American and half-Japanese, he sounds like a little lost lamb.

    Summary

    It’s almost funny. All he ever wanted was to play hockey, to play in the NHL, to win the Cup. This—Samwell, the team, the Haus—was supposed to be just a detour, but now it feels more like a destination he failed to realize he’s already reached.

    (Or: Jack signs with the Falconers, graduates, and leaves. It's the hardest thing he's ever done. What comes after is even harder.)

    Summary

    For many long years Merlin waited.

    For the other part of his soul, for the other half of his life. He was born to serve Arthur. So that meant he was also born to wait. Even if it took a thousand years. Even if the wait seemed never to end.

    Until one day, suddenly, it did.

    --------------

    Set after the Merlin Series 5 Finale "Diamond of the Day".
    Canon Compliant. In Character. Arthur Pendragon Returns

    When Arthur stumbles from the Lake of Avalon 1,500 years after his death, he finds a world unlike the one he knew. Faced with the loss of everyone he loved, and the threat of impending prophecy, Arthur must quickly learn what it means to be not just a king, but the Once and Future King. Merlin does all he can to guide him in this journey, even as he struggles to hide his love for his king, and to conquer his fear of losing him again.

    Story includes sass, banter, horseplay, and True Love.

    After spending some days of in Hasetsu, dealing with the antics only Victuuri can deliver, the skaters wake up one morning with dozens of anonymous hate messages on their feeds.

    Apparently somebody had posted a list of people that were bad for the Sport and every single one of them made it on there.

    Expecting Yuuri to have a complete meltdown once he reads his messages they are all surprised when he doesn't.

    Crack song fic done to Taylor Swift's Love Story.

    Where Viktor plays the role of Juliet's, Yuuri's his Romeo, and Yakov is Juliet's dad.

    Song rewrite, not my usual style, but it works. xD

     

    And I said
    “Yuuri, take me somewhere we can be alone
    I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run
    You'll win the gold and I'll be your husband
    It's a love story, baby, just say yes”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    So this is fucking amazing, intensely good, does not pull punches. It has a lot of characters making questionable choices in entirely plausible ways and incredible use of language, some of the best writing I've seen in this fandom.

    It does contain teenagers doing the kinds of things teenagers do, including having sex, drinking alcohol, in ways that feel pretty fucking realistic to my own experiences of being a teenager way back when, but which do not feel exploitative. IOW, this isn't necessarily the positive example you want your own kids to read, but it feels pretty damn cathartic if you were a teenager once who made questionable choices and lived with the consequences.

    Characterization is utterly, completely spot on. Well researched and gut-punchingly introspective. There aren't many chapters (chapter 1 is novella-length, so is chapter 2) so pace yourself or set aside a block of time.

    Immersive and excellent, it takes us from Yuuri's Junior days to the end of season 1. Chapter 2 is a retelling of the entire series which fills in and elaborates. It follows canon very closely.
