with these things i’ll never say by missmichellebelle, Gen, 1.8k
Yuuri has been Victor’s PA for well over a year now, but no matter how many times Victor has told him otherwise, he still leaves actual handwritten notes for Victor to find.

Never Look Away by gabapple, mamodewberry, Mature, 152k (WIP)
Everything Viktor knows and loves is tangled up in the world of competitive skating- a world that, for him, is quickly coming to an end. Standing at the precipice of the inevitable, he must decide how his tale unfolds: should he retire into quiet obscurity? Allow himself to be eaten alive by the younger, more vicious competition? …Or risk it all on a struggling, but passionate, skater halfway across the world, who may prove to be the inspiration, life, and love that Viktor’s been missing all this time?

against the dying of the light by the__magpie, Teen, 2.4k (WIP)
The facts were these: Yuuri Katsuki - twenty-four years, seventeen days, twenty-one hours, and three minutes old; pie maker by day and dead-waking private investigator also by day - has just brought Victor Nikiforov - Grand Prix Final winner; childhood best friend; first kiss - back to life, mostly on accident. Though they can never touch, or Victor will go back to being dead, they can team up to solve the mystery of Victor’s murder and, along the way, learn how to make this unexpected relationship work.

Open wounds, closed heart by nekoclair, Teen, 5.8k (WIP)
Sometimes it hurts. It’s not a physical pain, but the marks that they leave are real, too real, and it express itself in the most diverse forms. The heavy breathing, the sleepless nights, the bad habit of thinking too much about matters that should be trivial, and so many other symptoms chase after the young writer who, no longer enduring his own routine, decides to accept any help. Yuri Katsuki opens his arms and welcomes the opportunity to change, and to learn how to live with his worst and most insistent companion: his anxiety.

It is the year 1904. In an attempt of de-escalating matters with Imperial Russia, translator Yuuri Katsuki accompanies his father to St. Petersburg in a diplomatic mission. However, he certainly did not expect to meet a man as stunning and peculiar as tsarevich Yuri Georgieviech’s bodyguard, Polkovnik Viktor Ivanovich Nikiforov - and even less he expected to fall in love when war is threatening the country.

Not everybody knows this, but Romania does have a (small) coast which you can visit. It’s not the most beautiful coast of Europe, but the Romanian seaside sure has its charm. Constanta is a nice city, you can party in Mamaia and Vama Veche is still great. And there’s plenty to do in the hinterland. Just saying…

Pater’s Rose

AU, I hope you will like it!!! tell me what you think about it…. Looking forward to hear from you!!! 

Breathlessly, I open the compartment, all my belongings in my hands. I enter the warm cabin, smiling at the other traveling passengers. A wealthy man stands up, helping me with my battered suitcase. With a slight movement he stows my suitcase away over my head.

I thank him, falling exhausted in my seat. He takes the seat opposite me; tiredly I smile, watching outside. With a loud toot, the railway signals that we’re ready to leave.

My hands are still clad in my new lace gloves. Carefully I pull on the fingers of the right hand, sliding out of my right glove, doing the same with the left. Holding both gloves in one hand I place them gently on my lap; in the same movement I bend forward to remove the hairpins which are holding my hat in place. Putting the hat on my lap too, covering my gloves, I close my eyes,feeling how the heavy machine starts to move.

Operation Pirate Law

So, I answered the call to write a fic for the CSSV for someone who didn’t receive one. Imagine my delight when I discovered that it was for none other than @lenfaz! So, here you are Lena, I hope you enjoy. It may not take place during Valentine, but it does include two meddlesome boys trying to act like cupid! 

Thanks to @emmandhook for letting me be involved and a BIG thank you to @captndevil for being my amazing last minute beta!


All of Liam’s efforts to get his older brother together with the town Deputy are not having the desired effect. Maybe he needs to change tactics and find himself an accomplice? Fortunately, the Deputy’s son has the same idea, and together they put into action – Operation Pirate Law.

Killian Jones let out a deep sigh as he approached the Storybrooke Sheriff Station. He and his younger brother, Liam, had only been in town a few weeks, and although they’d had a rough few months leading up to this point, Killian thought Liam was past this sort of behavior. He supposes nothing should surprise him anymore.

It wasn’t until five months ago that Killian was even aware that he had a younger brother. His father, Brennan Jones, had passed back in England and the executor had been sent to America to both notify Killian of his father’s passing and to inquire whether or not he would accept guardianship over his half brother, per his father’s wishes. Killian hadn’t seen or heard from his father in nearly twenty-five years, and he wasn’t sure which had been the biggest shock, the news of Brennan’s death, the news that he had a half brother, or the fact that his younger brother shared the same name as his deceased older brother.

At first, Killian’s anger towards the man who had abandoned him, his older brother, and his mother had caused him to refuse taking responsibility of the younger Liam. For a brief few days Killian justified his refusal to uphold his father’s last wish as a way to somehow get back at the man who’d walked out on them and then, apparently, replaced them with another family, but then that voice of reason (which always sounded like his brother, Liam - his older brother, Liam) had prevailed. Within a week, the younger Liam had arrived and Killian found himself in the role of part brother, part parent to a thirteen-year-old boy whose entire world had been turned upside down.

okay but like a headcanon where they look at their favourite photos of each other??

ok so.

aaron’s favourite photo of robert is one he took when they went on a weekend away. robert is a bit of a poser, at times, so he always looks a+ in photos (the wanker) but he was sitting at a pub bench, sunglasses and one of aarons hoodies on, laughing at something aaron had said and paying zero attention, and aaron had snapped a photo. its one of those rare moments when robert had his guard down and he’s just open, and happy, and aaron loves that photo. it was his screensaver for nearly six months, and it gave him the same rush of ‘god i love him’ every single time he checked the time on his phone. it still does, if he’s honest - it’s the photo he tends to look at when he’s contemplating killing robert in his sleeping for doing his head in, because it’s the best reminder of how much he loves his robert, the robert no one else really gets to see. 

robert’s favourite photo of aaron is from a night out. they’d gone for dinner, and drinks, wanting to get out of the village for a while, and ended up in a ridiculous cocktail bar in leeds. aaron’s pulling a face, a violently orange cocktail held to his mouth, and he just looks happy. it’s not like it’s a particularly significant moment, or anything, just a random friday date night, but aaron looks happy, carefree and just in love, and robert just treasures it. a close second is one robert took on christmas day, the first christmas they properly spent together, aaron sitting under the christmas tree, tea in hand, a look of complete adoration on his face as he watched chas and liv unwrap their presents.

they have a few favourite photos of them together, too. they weren’t very good for taking photos together, in the beginning. the first proper one they really had was one liv had taken of them in wales, liv forcing them to scoot closer together one day while they were visiting a little seaside village, aaron’s arm around robert’s waist, robert holding aaron close. robert was kind of floored, by how well they fit together, how normal it was to see themselves to affectionate and open, and honest - so floored, he made it his profile picture on facebook, the first time he’d sort of gone ‘yeah, i have a boyfriend now.’ it wasn’t the slightest bit momentous, in the end, and that was kind of the best bit.

they have one drunken selfie from their first wedding that they both cherish. they’re sitting in one of the booths of the woolpack, pints in hand, jackets long since discarded. robert had decided they needed a selfie, to commemorate the occasion and all, and so they’d done the whole cheesy taking a photo of themselves kissing thing. only, aaron had started to laugh, snorting into robert’s mouth, robert returning the grin (as always.) it’s probably the happiest either of them have ever looked, drunk and in love and having just promised to spend forever together.

A pirate!Victor and dressmaker!Yuuri AU.

  • Comment: A fic that’s proven really promising just from the first chapter! The author’s done well in characterizing Yuuri’s personality as shaped by this AU already, and it looks to be shaping up to be cute with some drama. Something to keep an eye on, definitely. 

2. Driving Mr. Katsuki by CullinanKatsudon || Rated M, 13k (WIP)

Yuuri Katsuki gets into Victor Nikiforov’s car, mistaking it for his Uber ride…and Victor doesn’t correct him.

  • Comment: Oh my god this au and this fic are ridiculous but holy hell, the author has me fuckin invested as yell. I’ve laughed and pitied Yuuri and facepalmed at Victor and this fic is just a ride. Super duper fucking recommend, it’s hilarious and brilliant and I just. I laughed so hard.

3. Ocean Eyes by Jellyfish_Tacos || Rated T, 15.7k (WIP)

Prince Yuri had a curse placed on him when he was a baby. When he grows up, a wish intended to fix the curse goes awry, making the problem even worse. Eligible princesses come from far and wide to try and offer a solution in hopes of winning the prince’s hand, but nothing works. Besides, Yuri only has eyes for the mysterious stranger that visits the royal gardens every night.

  • Comment: Normally I don’t read Otayuri but this one snagged me. Very fairytale-esque, complete with a conniving mother and fairies and curses. Also cute, with a dash of sads due to Yuri’s situation. I’m rooting for their happy ending.

After a mistake with a Wanted advert, Yuuri ends up auditioning for a style of dance that is most certainly not ballet and as it turns out…he’s kinda good at it! However, trying to keep his night-work separate from the rest of his life becomes a damn near impossible task when the Mr. Perfect who comes to his store regularly starts showing up at the club and seems to take a shine to his stage persona!

HEARTS(country of Hearts) 

-Through the years, they have done theyre best to develop truces and alliances with the other neighboring territories(some more successful than others). Militaristic Power, but only uses it when necessary. Although there hasnt been a real war in years, they continue to design in warfare weaponry. They sort of play the role of the ‘peackeepers’.

Country of Spades

-The Industrial Power House of the World! Ever since the new monarchy(Alfred Jones) came into power, there has been a mega boost of innovation. Inventors of the Locomotives and introduced the train as a luxury travel. 

Diamond Country

- Land mark of the Arts, entertainment, and beauty. Nick-named the ‘City of Diamonds’; its said that, at sunset, the stained-glass windows of the La Maison Royale, shine like diamonds. Located at the peninsula(geographically), its the sunny seaside vacation spot everybody wishes to visit at least once in there life(which means its a tourist trap for rich people)

Country of Clovers

-Surrounded by the snow Misted Mountains of the north, the Country of Clovers stands in(geographical) isolation to the other countries. Has tried at multiple attempts to invade neighboring territories, but since the other 2 nations have rounded alliances with HEARTS, they soon join the fray and push the invading army back north. 

this is sorta the abridged version of what i originally had. if yall have any more question about any the formalities or what ya fancy, go on ahead.

I hate mondays… not.

This place  exists, real and with all this palett of color and beauty.
