I read a lot, really… but there’s a difference between what I’m willing to read and what I’m willing to rec lmao. Sorry for the shortness.
Yuuri never meant to become a supervillain. These things just happen to him.
- ??? It’s so crack and it’s so good??? I died multiple times while reading it, all due to laughter. I think this is hands-down the funniest superhero au I’ve read so far. The interactions are a joy, the interrogation scene after Yuuri is arrested nearly gave me heart arrest and just *prayer hands emoji* it’s so crack that if you stepped on this fic, you’d break your parent’s back.
- Honestly, 11/10 would read again.
Bright blue smoke poured out of the spout, leaking through the top that still somehow remained shut. Yuri, awash in what he recognized as fear as much as panic, covered his mouth and nose with his sleeve. Amazingly, the stuff seemed to move of its own accord, pooling into one area like the kind of fog generated by dry ice and water. It didn’t creep over every available surface, and Yuri didn’t want to displace anything into his lungs, so he merely watched – bravely behind his sofa – as it continued to gather.
After what seemed like ages, the mountainous cloud dissipated, poofing into the ether abruptly. It left behind a disheveled looking young man, who seemed as surprised by this turn of events as Yuri was.
The two of them stared at each other, tension building like an acrid aftertaste.
Yuri broke first.
Lesson of the day: don’t let strange samovars into your apartment or doe-eyed Japanese boys might pop out and grant you wishes.

- the opening narration and Yuri’s POV in general is such a fucking delight. He’s a perfect ball of rage and hard work in this, and Yuuri’s character as a djinn interests me. one of the tags is ‘crack treated seriously’, and while the premise is indeed amusing, the execution is really hecking good. There’s a plot, guys, and I’m here for it.
- And also for the development at the end of the first chapter lolol
