-SO I took these pictures for @blesstale initially because she ordered all this stuff for me from our shop as a celebration for our first design together–! THEN I THOUGHT “HEY THESE LOOK P COOL, I’LL SHARE THEM WITH MY BEAUTIFUL TUMBLR FRIENDS!” so enjoy these!!!
There are so many great Otayuri fics on ao3 and I’ve… pretty much read them all haha. I wish I could include every single one I’ve read on this rec list, but then this list would probably go on forever so here are just some of my absolute favorites! Please go check them out if you have time! I promise you will love them. <3
I kid you not: as the Otayuri fanbase keeps growing, this fic will become known as THE LEGENDARY MULT-CHAPTERED SLOW BURN OTAYURI FANFIC. Because that’s exactly what it is. The characterization in this fic is unbelievably on point and Otabek and Yuri’s interactions are just so very… them. I greatly enjoy watching both of them suffer from the UST (although they are suffering no longer… heh).
Absolutely exquisite writing. Some sentences will make you laugh, some will make you cry and all of them will make you feel like you’ve had the breath knocked out of you. I literally just stared up at my ceiling for ten minutes after reading this just contemplating the beauty of Otabek and Yuri’s relationship.
This was the first Otayuri fanfic I ever read and it just… blew me away? Otabek’s voice is so beautiful, clear and distinct, and you get the pleasure of watching both him and his relationship with Yuri grow over the years. There is underage sexual contact when Yuri is 17 (which, I would like to point out for the antis, is older than 16, Russia and Kazakhstan’s age of consent).
This fic is so gentle, romantic and enchanting that my heart just swelled with overwhelming love and affection for these two. Otabek is absolutely precious, and Yuri is smitten (the feeling is mutual!).
This fic cut me so deeply and made my heart bleed… But the ending plastered a nice band aid over the wound so it’s all good! All jokes aside, please go and read this fic; it’s so hauntingly beautiful that you’ll be aching from the feels for days.
Oh god, this fic highlights how utterly healthy, loving and caring Otabek and Yuri’s relationship is. Otabek is literally the bestest, BESTEST (I know that’s not a word but it gets my point across) friend in the world, and Yuri clearly agrees.
i’m not gonna sit here and tell y'all you have to stan monsta x, or support their comeback. i’m not gonna force anything on you.
instead, i’m going to ask of you, to please help us out to get them their first win. i’m going to ask you to try giving them a listen, to check out their variety shows and guest appearances. to watch a performance or two of theirs and see if you like them.
i want to be a positive influence and to bring in fans in a #beautiful way, versus acting like you absolutely have to love them.
they might not be your style, maybe you like something else. that’s understandable, we all have our own tastes. but i and a lot of other monbebes would really appreciate any and all help we could get to get our boys to win and be proud of themselves because they’re really hard on themselves about a lot, especially about their lack of wins.
check out their old stuff if you’d like and their new album along with their title track Beautiful is set to drop on the 21st, so you’re welcome to see that when it airs and get a feel for their new comeback. it’s apparently a lot different than before which i can totally tell and you might like it, but if not then i at least appreciate you giving them a chance.
These people are all amazing, wonderful people who have great senses of humous and I love their content. It always cheers me up to watch their videos, and… yeah. I recommend you go check them out if you don’t already know them. PLEASE DO. And subscribe to them if you like their stuff.

Here we are, week 16! There are so many wonderful fics and writers out there that deserve some love, and this is what that is for. Go check them out, leave a like or reblog, but show ‘em some appreciation. They’ve earned it.
If you have any fics of your own or know of one you want to share, please tag me in them! I’ll love to read them. You’ll know that I’ve read it or gotten your tag if I like it. (:
PSA: I will not be adding fics onto the list that are pure smut. If it is hinted at, then that it is okay, and if it is in a series works I will just skip that chapter.
This drawing was a gift for the Instagram account @nicosaysnope for been one of the earliest supporters of my work who always properly credited me when they reposted my art. You should go check them out they post a lot of fun stuff.
