psa for the yoi fandom: russian names & how to use them

I’m going to start by swearing this isn’t me just complaining but a general resource for the Yuri on Ice fandom because I’ve noticed some mistakes in the naming conventions used among the fandom and want to help correct them. Especially in how the fandom treats diminutives. I absolutely love seeing the huge amount of interest in Russian diminutives, etc. in fanart and fics and hopefully this breakdown will help continue that trend and interest and even spur some more ideas in fandom content.

So let’s go through some important details below the cut!

Elate Fic Rec Masterlist

I keep seeing requests for Nate/Elena recommendations, so here’s a huge ass list of amazing authors!

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of every elate fanfic out there, but rather an extensive collection of ones I have personally read and loved. I have a page on my blog specifically for recs here, but I figured a post would get around easier–and people can add to it if I’ve missed any goodies!

Directly below is a key for what I’m specifically recommending authors’ fics for, since many authors on this list have written dozens of fics and I would have to write a whole novel to describe how great each fic is individually. They’ve been divided up into a few different categories:

  • Angst: 💔
  • Fluff: ♥
  • Smut: 🔥
  • Family Life (aka with Cassie!): ♫

And although I read a lot of fanfic, I’m only including stories on here that I have actually read and are about Nate/Elena, so some authors on here have extra stories on their AO3/FF/tumblr/etc that are not listed here, either because I haven’t gotten around to reading them yet or they’re not about Nate/Elena as a central theme. However, anyone on this list is awesome, and I make broad recs for all their uncharted fics! I’m also including author’s tumblrs (that I know of; sorry if I missed any!) if you wanted to check out their blog!

Honourable mention to @elateweek and its fanfic tag, where you can find various gems archived there.

Fair warning: the angst can range from mild interpersonal drama to soul destroying, so read with caution when following this label.

Another note: because I am sell-out, I’m including my own fics on here (partly for inclusion’s sake, and partly because I’ve been told I write good things on occasion).

Well, without further ado… here it is!

“On location in Mississippi, Elizabeth Taylor threw off her sombre mood and left the rest of a marooned cast speechless when she bounced out on the balcony of the film-set house and into the pouring rain. In checked cotton pyjamas, she played and danced like a twelve-year-old, shaking her head free of drops and calling to the others to join her. Ever since she was quite small, she has hated to wear shoes, and her unconventional–or at least decidedly informal–outfit suited her mood exactly.“

Look who it is!!

Long story short we have had a pretty tough year. We got evicted in early feb (by my own dad no less) and I have been struggling with the fallout from that and my health.

Keiko, however, is fine! He is loving the new area we live in. Lots more wooded paths and parks to play in here, and he is happy and healthy!

Hopefully I will be able to be a bit more active from now on!

Lmao so I was rereading some SiH again and I know this is gonna sound ridiculous but-

Act 10 was the first time Ritsu attempted to confess, but his voice got drowned out by the rain.

Act 17 was the second time, but then he got interrupted by Takano.

With Act 24 coming in less than a month now, I have to wonder if something along these lines is gonna happen again, because:

a. We haven’t seen Haitani outside of flashbacks or short mentions since Act 20. (The last time we actually got the normal countdown- which was only 75 days back then! We’re under two months in the countdown by this point considering how their cycles work!)

b. Haitani was shown to be in contact with Ritsu by email in the most recent Act, 23

c. With the introduction of Nao in Act 23, someone who is definitely coming back later, I would say the Haitani arc will be closing within the next few chapters so we’ll get to focus more on Nao. (Or maybe Nao will even step in, considering how protective he was of Ritsu in Act 23. I would say he’d want to talk to Ritsu about the current situation because he knew just how much Ritsu was hurt by the breakup ten years prior.)

d. The last time Haitani was around, Ritsu had planned on rejecting him on the spot before Takano showed up. He was ready to tell him that he was in love with someone, which would’ve most likely turned into Haitani asking if it were Takano considering what he had observed of their interactions thus far.

e. Whenever Haitani shows up, something ends up happening once they get away from him. Be it finding out more about just what went down at Shuudansha Earth, having conversations of just what a relationship between Takano and Ritsu would be like, or scenes like in Act 20 where Ritsu finds ways to say he doesn’t want to give up on getting back together with time. (Though most scenes like that are in reaction to Takano baiting for them, consciously or not, but that’s a topic for a different day.)

f. Additionally, I would say that with how things have been lately, things are progressing more than normal? The act leading up to and including the onsen trip had plenty of little things; things like the conversation on the train in Act 21, the conversation in the car in Act 22, and the lack of (direct) “just admit you’re in love with me already”s from 22 and 23. I don’t want to be too hopeful knowing how Takano is with his physical advances, but just maybe their moving towards better things???

tldr: I think that things are pointing towards Ritsu having another attempt at confessing to Takano pretty soon with the appearance of Nao and the probable return of Haitani being soon.
