burn-bright

Yes but headcanon

That Otabek is such an incredible sap grossly in love with Yuri, that, without warning, Yuri receives a handwritten letter one day, on thick marbled paper, with slanted handwriting in the blackest ink, with Otabek expounding on Yuri’s beauty, grace, fierceness and fearlessness by quoting William Blake’s Tiger, Tiger poem. You know:

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire? 

Etc.

And Yuri is just sitting there reading that letter with an incredulous look on his face dying of embarrassment over his disgustingly romantic boyfriend all the while his heart is bursting. 

i look at you
and i see
the sun
burning bright, powerful, illuminatingly captivating
and i look at me
and i see
just a single star in your galaxy
bright, but not bright enough to make an impact
  you shine
and i am dim
you glow
and i am dull
you are colorful
and i am grey
you are magic
and i am mortal
everything you are
i am not
i can only hope
that you still love me
despite that

(cc, 2017)
Meant to be

Hold it in, they tell me
Not knowing that I can’t do that
can’t be that
I wasn’t made to just
push everything down inside
I am of the stars
Exploding in a blaze
of glory and destruction
See me burn, so bright
I light your day
and fill up your night
Put your light
under a bushel
My light is to be flung
across the universe
My song is meant
to be sung
Both a blessing
and a curse

Prayer of Devotion for Hekate

Hekate, my love for you is as endless as the cycle of life and death
It has been you who has been present and will always be present
From before my first breath to beyond my last
My love for you burns bright like the torches you ever carry
Lighting my way through the darkest times and leading me into the light
Showing me the right path to take on the crossroads of life
My love for you is as magical as the spells woven by candlelight in the dark
As beautiful as the songs and incantations chanted around the bronze cauldron of Medea
My love shines as bright as the moon whose light guides the lost in the dark of night
As comforting and ever present and the silver orb that forever lights my path
My love for you, oh Hekate, has no bounds, and I am devoted to you wholly and passionately.

kate x renee

10. Easily. Why? 

Those two piles of pain, snark, passion and confidence were made for each other. They know each other so well that they can get under the other’s skin at the drop of a hat. They burn bright, all the time. Their relationship literally explodes in their face over and over and over and over and over again and yet they just can’t seem to stay away. 

And you’d think this’d be some unhealthy thing, right? That they’re both doing the same self-destructive thing because its routine and they’re stuck in a rut and don’t want to be alone? Well, it’s not. They’ve had long-term relationships that weren’t the other. Renee had Dee for, what, almost four years? Kate had Mags for…about one? Timeline is weird on that. 

Point being, it’s impossible not to write those two in the same room without it being just…heat rising from the asphalt levels of sexual tension. And if said tension is resolved, holy shit are they just…in sync. Like, if they slowed down for maybe two seconds they’d be on Korrasami-levels of synchronization. 

But really, at the end of the day, when it’s all gone to shit and the world’s ending…Renee’s the one who deals with the hell instead of being consumed by it, same with Kate. They don’t know how to stop. 

For God’s sake, they don’t know how to die. They’re both too intersectionalist and too deeply entrenched in continuity to be killed off. Put on the shelf, like with Renee for a while? Yeah. But dead? Pbbbth. No.

What They Were Thinking

Yuuri: Viktor’s staring at me; his eyes are as cold as the ice we both skate on. I’m sure he is tearing me apart inside his head to find my weaknesses. To Viktor I am no more than a pathetic, arrogant, talentless skating reaching beyond my abilities who needs to be knocked back down into my place.

Viktor: OMG he’s so cute. His nose scrunches up when he laughs. How adorable <3 I hope he watches the routine I made about him. He’s so talented and beautiful and sweet~

Hii!!!! 
I needed to say goodbye to UMFB&MHA, so I made a fanvid of chapter 14.  I had a hard time realizing that we will not be inside Yuuri’s head anymore </3  I needed to let him go… and from that need was born this video <3. 

@kazliin  I love you so much for creating UMFB <3 I’ll never get over it <3 I’m sad about UMFB and excited about OBS!! :s That’s my life now.

Top 10 fanfic title and summaries?

Sacchariwrites -  top 10 most popular in universe viktuuri fanfics? lol


Ok so for these are the top 15 (I couldn’t stick to top 10, I had too many ideas!) most popular Viktuuri fanfics of the Rivals universe AO3. As a disclaimer they are not based on any existing Viktuuri fanfic irl and they are not all fics and tropes I would necessarily read or write (I don’t like RPF myself), they are just the kind of fic that I imagine would be most popular in the Rivals universe considering what is publicly known of Viktor and Yuuri’s story and how they are each viewed by the public in general and their fans, plus the kind of fics that tend to be popular in most fandoms. 

I also got way too into this and started mentally writing out the whole fic for some of them but I had to restrain myself and just stick to summaries!

At the height of his career and at the brink of winning gold for the first time, Yuuri Katsuki is instead injured and prevented from ever returning to competitive skating.

World renown for his work he is in constant high demand but willing to work with any skater who needs his help, from the youngest juniors to the most decorated seniors. All but one, his ex-rival Viktor Nikiforov, the world’s top skater and seemingly the only person who has never skated to a Katsuki routine.

Inspired by the emotive creations of Katsuki, Nikiforov sets out on a quest to convince the ex-skater to help him choreograph the routines for his final and definitive season.

Summary:

Sweat-slicked skin gleamed under the lights, two bodies moving as one as gasps of pleasure filled the quiet room. Katsuki had his head thrown back, eyes glazed as he rode out the sensation, thighs clamped tight around the warm body beneath him and hands fisted into silver hair…

“Cut.” Came the harsh voice of the director as the studio lights snapped back on, flooding the scene with a glaring brightness. “Take five everyone.”

“And you two.” he turned to the two actors who were both blinking in the sudden light and wiping the fake sweat from where it was lying stickily across their skin. “You need to get it together soon or this whole movie is going to be a disaster. You’re supposed to be in love for Christ’s sake! Katsuki, you look like you’re counting down the minutes until you can finish this scene and go and get lunch and Nikiforov, you’re just looking bored. You’re supposed to be actors! I don’t care how much you hate each other, you better act like you don’t or you’re both getting fired.”

Katsuki glared down at Nikiforov who was still lying beneath him, looking annoyed.

“You better step up your game.” Nikiforov drawled, looking disparagingly up at the man still straddling him. “I have a reputation to uphold and I’m not going to lose it to a bad movie because of one amateur, one-hit-wonder actor who can’t do his job properly.”

“Maybe it would be easier to do my job if you weren’t such an arrogant ass who can’t admit to his own mistakes.” Katsuki shot back, glare intensifying. “And stop acting like you’re such a big deal. You might be famous but you’re not that impressive.”

“I don’t know, I’ve been reliably informed by a lot of people that I’m very impressive.”

Nikiforov flicked his eyes to where their bodies were joined, only the smallest pieces of fabric separating them, eyebrow raised suggestively. Katsuki snorted in disgust, then rolled his hips in an unexpected movement that made a certain part of Nikiforov perk up in unintentional interest.

“I’ve seen better.”

Summary:

“You know, I like my men like I like my coffee.” Nikiforov said, leaning closer across the counter and trying out his best, award winning smile. The cute barista - whose nametag was always suspiciously absent whenever Nikiforov was in the shop and whose name he still couldn’t charm out of him, although not from lack of trying - merely glared in response and continued to make his order without replying.

“Dark, strong and a little bitter.” Nikiforov added with a flirtatious wink, making a point of looking at the man’s feathery dark hair and the lean muscles that stood out in his arms, accentuated by short sleeves of the uniform he was wearing.

“That’s funny. I like you just like I like my coffee too.” The barista’s glare changed in an instant to a coy smirk and Nikiforov’s heart leapt a little in his chest at the sight. It had been weeks since he had first spotted the man at his favourite coffee shop and he had been trying to charm him from the moment their eyes first met. Unsuccessfully so far but he knew it couldn’t be long now.

“And how is that?” Nikiforov replied, layering his tone with as much suggestiveness as he could muster.

“I don’t like coffee.”

The barista turned away to serve the next customer with a look of triumph and Nikiforov could feel his face fall. Oh well, there was always next time. After all, he didn’t give up easily and he always loved a challenge.

For centuries their silent war raged on, until one day the power of the God of Spring grew too great and he taunted the God of Death, creating an eternal Spring on earth where nothing could ever die.

Angered by the arrogance of the other God, the God of Death kidnaped the God of Spring for his mockery, locking him away in the underworld and plunging the world above into an eternal winter. But hatred slowly began to change into something new and the two Gods came to realise they might not be as different as they once seemed. But both were needed to keep the balance in the world, one above and one below, and as the long winter raged on even love was called into question. Because can anyone truly be in love if they are also not free?

After finding a website for anonymous people just wanting someone to talk to, he quickly discovers that it is a good way to deal with his feelings without the pressure or expectation of his fame. Another user, KYKatsudon, quickly catches his attention and the two of them click instantly. Viktor finds he can talk to the other man about just about anything and the other man has similar feelings and fears. Slowly he begins to fall for the mysterious man at the other end of the conversations and he wonders if maybe it might be worth trying out love one more time. The only problem is he has no idea who KYKatsudon really is, and he has never revealed his own identity either.

They might both be in for a surprise…

Charged with keeping the peace for the sake of his people, Yuuri is forced to leave his homeland forever and marry the only son and heir of the opposing kingdom, forging an alliance with marriage to protect the empire built on the backs and blood of his family and now ruled by his beloved sister. But Yuuri knows what the marriage truly is beneath the pretty words. A life-sentence, imprisoned forever under the rule of a man he hates and has faced on the battlefield countless time.

But the political machinations of the foreign court might prove to be an even deadlier battlefield than the one he just left and he must keep the peace between the two kingdoms to save the lives of millions, whatever the cost. And what’s more, his long-time enemy and new husband is not the man he believed him to be and his position as Prince Consort holds more power than he ever expected. For the one who holds the heart of the future king is the one who can control the kingdom.

Yuuri...will you go out with me?

AKA ‘When Viktor asks Yuuri out and it’s so cute and bittersweet’

So I’m only up to chapter 10 in my UMFB re-read.  Urgh.  I keep getting distracted.  Anyway.  I had been having a lot of thoughts about when Viktor asks Yuuri to dance in chapter 8 and then I read this great meta by @the-heart-of-my-mystery and she had a few points about when Viktor asks Yuuri out after their accident, like this one: ‘the date in ch9 is funny but also not funny because viktor doesn’t have an opportunity to ask yuuri out on a date until yuuri HAS A CONCUSSION. so much of this fic is just. so sad ugh.’

And all this really got me thinking about poor little Viktor trying to pluck up the courage to ask Yuuri out.  And obviously, Yuuri doesn’t even know that’s what’s going on so… 

Now I’m old and boring and have been married for 10 years so I’m not exactly up to speed with the dating scene.  So correct me if I’m wrong, but a ‘normal’ way for Viktor to approach Yuuri, given the context in which they see each other, would be to chat to him at competitions and social events and get to know him a bit more and sort of take things from there.  But that option isn’t open to poor Viktor, because Yuuri openly dislikes and avoids him.  So what’s a guy to do?
