Just some fic recs...

I’ve read a lot of really good fic this year and I just thought the best of the best deserved some recognition.  I tried to weed out the super popular fics, but some still show up because I love them that much.  Also, the ships are numerous and varied.

Running on Air–eleventy7; Drarry
Draco Malfoy has been missing for three years. Harry is assigned the cold case and finds himself slowly falling in love with the memories he collects.
*I would murder people to protect this fic.  It’s beautifully written, well-plotted, original, and it reuses certain sentences, making them more poignant the later in the story they’re used.  Like, fuck me up*

the ghost of you–kissmesexybatman; Klance
When Keith goes missing without a trace, all his family and friends are able to do is move on with their lives. When he shows back up after a year, they have to convince him they still want him back.
*I may be slightly biased because the coolest person in the world wrote this, but let me tell you, it’s emotionally heartwrenching, wonderfully written, and gives you a happy ending without sacrificing the needs of the characters*

My soul is an empty carousel at sunset.–dawnstruck; Otayuri
Yuri grows up and grows older and grows into himself. Otabek helps. It just takes a while to get there.
*I’m demi and this fic described exactly what that experience has been like for me, as it features a demi!Yuri.  Beyond that, it was sweet and genuine and I adored it*

6/100 days of practice //
A video today! I didn’t actually take any photos but I record portions of my practice and while this is far from perfect it’s all part of the process, so I’m happy (somewhat) to share! I slept in a lot this morning, but spent majority of my afternoon playing music (sorry homework)

Japanese Music Vocabulary ・音楽についての単語

I re-watched my favorite anime, Nodame Cantabile. The feels and obsession are real, like the heaps of music-themed vocabulary I learned from it! Here you are! EVERYONE, WATCH NODAME CANTABILE, I AM SERIOUS!  (のだめカンタービレ)

「楽しい音楽の時間だ」

The nice thing about music vocabulary is that there are some Kanji that keep appearing again and again, making the words easier to remember (the readings)
