    Queenie is my everything. I love this look inside her head. Excellent adventure plot done in a musing, illustrative style that twines around you like the scent of home.

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    If you liked Astolat's houses have feelings too fic, you must read this. Its exploration on wizarding architecture is fascinating and heart warming. If you don't love architecture, read for realistic realtionships and Harry as exactly who he would be as an adult with bonus 'fuck you uncle vernon' chicken.

    Summary

    Victor learns Japanese while in Hasetsu. He doesn't tell Yuuri, and things get dicey when he overhears Yuuri and Mari talking about him in Japanese. Repeatedly.

    (The subtitle of this fic should be: Victor Nikiforov really needs a hug. Luckily, he gets one. Eventually.)

    ~~~

    “No,” Victor says, skating up to Yuuri on the ice, “you have to push all the way from here, or you’ll never get the height you need for that axel.” He sets his hand on Yuuri’s ass, tracing the muscle group he’s referring to. “Not here.” He taps Yuuri’s thigh. He doesn’t know the words for the muscles in English, only knows how to show him.

    Yes, technically he’s grabbing Yuuri’s ass, but how else is he to communicate?

    An absolute joy to read. Read when you're in the mood to laugh, but don't mind a little bit of deep melancholy. An emotional thrill ride.
