Akaashi sat next to him in the little chair lift and watched the trails of small paw prints disappear between the clusters of fir trees.

  • no unread messages by warfare; kageyama & kenma; 5k; ‘Kageyama also remembers that he’d failed utterly at getting to talk to him. He’d been baffled about it at the time; what kind of setter doesn’t want to talk about setting? But maybe this is the answer. Maybe Nekoma’s setter - (“Kenma,” Hinata chides frustratedly the third or fourth time he says it, “his name is Kenma") - maybe Kenma-san is just bad face-to-face. Kageyama can understand that, to some extent, although he doesn’t quite understand why that would extend to talking to him about volleyball, but fine. He can accommodate this, if that’s what it takes. He asks for Kenma’s contact information immediately. Hinata copies it into his phone with a weird, sour face, muttering, “I mean it, Kageyama, you better not be a jerk to him.” Kageyama has no idea what Hinata is insinuating, and he forgets the comment almost immediately.’

Item #233 -  Report from officer Moore.

On 6-29-99, at about 15:45 hours, I removed item #233 from the evidence vault. Item #233 is a micro cassette player containing a micro cassette tape.
Item #233 was taken from the Harris residence during the execution of the search warrant on 4-20-99. The item was located on the kitchen table. I copied the micro cassette tape after having removed it from the tape player using glove hands. I then returned item #233 to the evidence vault. A copy of the tape was provided to Investigator Kate Battan.

The micro cassette player and tape was labeled “Nixon”. The voice on the beginning of the tape appears to be that of Eric Harris. The voice is familar to me from viewing video tapes in which Eric Harris and Dylan Klbold spend a great amount of time talking. On the micro cassette tape, the male voice indicates reason why these things are happening and states it will happen in “less than nine hours now”. He goes on to say, “People will die because of me,” and “It will be a day that will be remembered forever.” This portion of the tape only lasts a few moments. After that there appears to be a discussion between numerous individuals, including a male voice which appears to have an oriental accent.

Excerpts of an interview with Patrick Ireland from the 11k.
Many believe the “coughing” Ireland heard when he woke up was actually the aspiration of blood and/or death rattle of Klebold, given the direction he heard it coming from and his proximity to Harris and Klebold when they took their own lives.

Victuuri Long(-ish) Fic Recs

Here are some Victuuri fic recs for you before I go on vacation

All of the fics are complete. A few summaries were shortened. 
[Rating, Word Count, Canon Compliance]

a glide in your step by yuu_chi [T, 10k, Post Ep 2]
Ah, Yuuri thinks as his skates touch down on the ice, and even as Yuuko watches him it’s the weight of Viktor’s eyes he feels on his shoulder blades, I’m not ready to let this go.

and I feel life (for the very first time) by smudgesofink [T, 11k, Post Ep 3]
In which Victor helps Yuuri with his skating, but Yuuri helps Victor find himself again.

Just for You, a Symphony from My Soul by Caeseria [E, 13k]
Sometimes, it’s the smaller moments – those out of the public eye – that are the most important [Set between Ep 3 & 8]

from june to september by bigspoonnoya [T, 12k]
This is the summer they fell in love [Set between Ep 4 & 5]

Now When Arrows Don’t Penetrate, Cupid Grabs the Pistol by ken_ichijouj [T, 11k, Post Ep 7, Some Leo x Guang-Hong]
Phichit Chulanont doesn’t know how he ended up the skating world’s wingman, but he ain’t mad at it.

On Absence, Fondness, and Never Leaving his Side by BeautyButterBae [T, 12k, Post Ep 9]
“Would you do me the great honor and marry me, Katsuki Yuuri?” It’s all so unreal. And it’s really more than Yuuri can handle.

easy as pie by awkwardedgeworth [G, 14k, Post Ep 10]
wherein the universe laughs at Victor when he meets Yuuri again after the banquet

The Weight of Gold by barrelrider [NR (T?), 13k, Post Ep 10]
Yuri’s big win at the Grand Prix final poses questions about the future that he hadn’t thought to ask before. And Viktor doesn’t seem interested in answering them.

The measure of the year (the mind of men) by geckoplasm [T, 26k, Post Ep 10]
Victor is selfish and unobservant. Yuuri is petty and passive-aggressive. They’re still in love.

Question and Answer by chellethewriter [T, 11k]
Viktor is growing old, and his competitors seem to be growing younger and younger. Thus, with every passing year, Viktor finds fewer familiar faces at his Grand Prix banquets, and he wonders whether his attendance has become pointless. What he doesn’t realize, however, is that one unfamiliar, alcohol-reddened face can make the whole night more than worthwhile. Part of the series Even Ice Gods Can Melt [M, 44k] <

The Comeback by heartsdesire456 [T, 10k, Post Canon]
Victor’s debut for his return to competitive skating, the European Championships, arrives, and Yuuri tags along to support his husband as he fights his nerves to overcome his fears and share his love of skating with the world.


i know my madness by astoryaboutwar [E, 14k, Canon Divergence]
It’s hardly a secret that Victor Nikiforov is a massive player. (In which Yuuri doesn’t blow the Grand Prix Finals the first time round, does blow Victor, and everything changes but ends up the same.)

Stay Close to Me by dasedandconfuzed [T, 11k, Canon Divergence]
At the Grand Prix Final, Yuuri misses the podium by fractions of a point. Embroiled in a skating controversy, he tells himself he’ll prove his worth in the World Championships, but there’s a long time in between.

the distance between our fingers by awkwardedgeworth [G, 24k, Canon Divergence] [Otabek-centric, Otabek x Yuri(o)]
But Otabek is not a bystander, and he sees the glint of a golden ring from Victor’s right hand, slipped around his ring finger like a reminder. A reminder that Victor, estranged with nowhere else to go, was picked up by Yuri and Yakov to go back to Russia so he can have a semblance of a life back. A life without Yuuri Katsuki.

Victor Effing Nikiforov by shysweetthing [E, 13k, Canon Divergence]
AU in which Yuuri still doesn’t remember the banquet, somehow doesn’t blow Japanese Nationals, runs into Victor at the World Championships, and has absolutely no idea why his idol is suddenly friendly and incredibly handsy. 


Saving Us by vyriand [T, 39k, AU]
After failing the Grand Prix with terrible result, Katsuki Yuuri planned to retire. Miracles threw him into Victor’s life.

Souls bond, hearts follow by dianamoth [T, 13k, Soulmate AU]
In a world where soulmates are individuals connected on a spiritual level, able to communicate with variable degrees of empathy or telepathy, there is an appropriate time and rhythm for everything, even for a soulbond.

Unwritten by kaizuka [T, 34k, Soulmate AU]
Soulmates AU where whatever you write on your own skin appears on your soulmate, but when there is a language barrier, meeting becomes just a little more difficult than it should be.

born to make history by norgbelulah [T, 11k, Royalty AU]
Victor Nikiforov, Heir Tsesarevich and Grand Duke of Russia, needs a husband and only a Japanese Prince will do.

Make It Everlasting So Nothing’s Incomplete by (9k)

Trying to be conspicuous so he doesn’t startle him, Harry sidles up to Louis and asks, “How’s it going?”

“Alright,” Louis muses, turning his head so he can smile at Harry. “I wish there were explanations about what each of the flowers mean on labels or something, though.”

A thrill runs up Harry’s spine, and he can’t quite temper the grin that spreads across his face as he asks, “Well, I could tell you, if you’d like?”

“Oh, only if you have time, I don’t want to keep you away from your work -”

“Louis,” Harry laughs, gesturing around the empty shop. “There is nobody here and, as luck would have it, there is literally nothing I would like more than to talk to you about flowers.”

your heart is glowing (and i’m crashing into you) by anyadisee (11k)

If this were a fairytale, maybe even a Young Adult novel or a chick flick, this would be the moment where Louis would stare right into his soul and whisper, “You. It’s you, Harry,” before pulling him in for a kiss right there and then in the middle of the sidewalk. They’d confess their never-ending love for each other then hold hands for the rest of the walk home, and then they’d go to uni together and become the ultimate power couple of their campus. They’d start a family together a few years after they graduate, find a large house somewhere nice and preferably warm, get two pet dogs and five cats, and then adopt enough children to start a football team. If only men could get pregnant as well, Harry thinks wistfully. He’d love to carry Louis’ babies given the chance.

But. This isn’t a fairytale, nor is it a movie based off the latest YA bestseller. This is real life.

(harry is in love with love, volunteers to hand out valentine gifts for a week, and somehow becomes the football captain’s secret admirer.)
