Top SFW Fics

All the Right Notes by @pastel-plisetsky  

26.4K words - WIP

Yuri Plisetsky is an incredibly gifted piano player, known for his passionate and somewhat violent playing/compositions. But in order to compete in the famous Eurasia United competition (completely fictional), he needs a violin accompanist. Although he’s dreamed about this competition for years, he’s always worked better alone. Until a little-known, solemn, lovely violinist walks into his life.

Inspired by Yuri’s Allegro Appassionato in B Minor, his free skate song.

(or; how long does a love last?)

They fell together as if they were never meant to be parted. It’s as easy as the first step on to the ice; crisp, sudden and more natural than breathing - as if man was never meant to walk on land and instead live on frozen water.

Falling away is not as effortless.

Ocean Eyes by @joelsweet  

7.8K words - 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.

Overload by @lowercasewrites

“Yura, are you okay?”

Am I crying? Shit I must be. Why the fuck am I crying? He pulls back from my neck to look me in the eyes and make sure everything is alright. He cards his fingers through my hair as I pull myself together. I say the only thing I can think to say.

“I love you so much, Beka.”

Would I Dance With You? Both Forever and Rather Die by SinsofYouth AO3

10.1K Words - WIP

Mischievous fey. Wind spirits, beautiful and playfully malevolent. They are both a curse and a good omen, appearing to guide a wayward soul or to entrap young men, calling them away to dance and will kill those who dare refuse them. Whether they mean harm or not, no one can say for certain.

But it is said that those who dance with the fey were forever changed.

We Just Need a Human Touch by @aphhun (one of our admins!)

14.2K Words - WIP

“Give me your phone,” was the next thing out of his mouth, and Yuri found himself near squinting at the other.

“What?”

“Your phone. I’m going to give you my number,” persisted the DJ, and if Yuri had been more devoted to getting drunk earlier on in the evening, he knew that he would have handed it over without a second thought or a question. Sober Yuri, however, was more rational and undoubtedly skeptical.

“You literally don’t even know my name.“

…Here’s the rest of the requests! Momiji and Okuu playing cards for @finetalpies, Blake sneaking frolicking in the grass for @askanoarfish, and Holo for @matiasalbertini (haha you get it like holo as in holographic aren’t I clever). There were also two requests for boys that I chickened out of, but wtv.

Times were at around 110 minutes (miraculously), 70 minutes, and 130 minutes (I got carried away) respectively.

Requests are still open, since I really want to get better at speed drawing! Marginally more detail here!

Part 1

The Battle of St. Vincent, 14th February 1797 by Geoff Hunt.

This scene hinges on the actions of Nelson, then a commodore (having no fewer than four admirals superior to him actually present on the day). In a characteristic combination of eagerness, daring and independence that bordered on insubordination, he ordered his ship, the Captain, 74 guns, to “cut the corner” on a rather slow fleet manoeuvre and so got into action with the Spanish flagship, the 130-gun Santisima Trinidad, and at least two other first-rate battle ships before the rest of the British fleet caught up with him. The British ship Culloden is about to reach the battered Captain before passing on to the Spanish flagship. In the confused fighting that followed, Nelson was to perform his well-known feat of capturing an 80-gun ship, the San Nicholas, and using her as a bridge to capture another even larger, the 112-gun San Josef. The ship entering at extreme left is the 98-gun Prince George, which was to play a major role in knocking out the San Josef.

anonymous asked:

We have a guy who comes in regularly, who - when asked - refused to give his 1p change to charity because "I can use that to feed my kids", but came in and got a £130(ish) Gears Of War Xbox One Elite controller. Like are you fucking messing, mate?! I'm not sure which bit of this is the most mind-boggling.

Writing Robyn

So Robyn has 6 lines in Torn.

(She had 2 more that were deleted prior to shooting - nothing to do with Robrina, it was just a little exchange between her & Jana before the pack left the Kafe. Things get cut for time - it happens.)

6 lines may not seem a lot, but believe me, they can consume you.


My initial story last year (which was really different from Torn - it still had Emilia doing civil disobedience and a big speech, but those are literally the only elements that survived from then to now) barely featured R + K. They had a short scene where Robyn was encountering hostility from humans (normal ones - the Humans group wasn’t really a thing yet) and …I think the police… hang on… *checks original story doc [which holy shit I was writing exactly literally a year ago tonight]*… yep the police, who are looking for Emilia. And Katrina steamed in to defend Robyn. That was it for them with me.


Then a couple of months later, we had to alter lots of events in Block 2 of the series (Eps 6 - 10) because of production issues that had come up, and most of our stories drastically changed. My ep was now going to be the one where the emergency laws came into force - where everything went to hell for the pack, basically. And so the Kafe Escape scene was born.

I had an image in my head straight away. Literally straight away, of Robyn, perched on the sill of the open flat window, about to jump and  - -

I spent a lot of time thinking about Robyn before I could write that scene properly. She barely had any lines in S4 - information and orders, really - but Natasha’s looks, and body language, were so good, and intense. She truly did hold your attention, even in the back of shots. I was not surprised when they said they wanted to bring her back.

But who was Robyn?

In a group, as writers, we knew what she would be doing in the series. Her role would be somewhat humorous, at least initially, as you put a precise, highly-trained security operative into a more sedate service role, where she has to interact with - fuck - PEOPLE. Like normal people. Imagine James Bond suddenly working in McDonalds*. It’s not going to go well, and it’s going to be funny.

*Other fast food providers are available

At the same time, she’s also the keeper of some Segolia secrets that even Imara is not privy to, and she’s a combat expert that Jana can - if need be - utilise. And she’s seeing an increase of hostility towards her kind, which she probably can’t deal with in the manner she’d like to. And oh yeah, at some point, somewhere along the way, she’s going to develop a big ol’ crush on her new boss. Her new *human* boss.

That’s all good, with loads of story potential. That still doesn’t get me into her head.

I knew Jana. I knew TJ. I knew Selina, I knew Matei, I knew Emilia, I knew Imara, I knew Katrina. If you asked me to write a scene with them, I knew how they’d react, and how they’d sound. I didn’t have that with Robyn. Yet.


Who was she during S4? What did she do on her days off, or on the nights when she wasn’t sneaking around with a camera for Victoria Sweeney? I figured she had a modest apartment, paid for by Segolia. It had a view of the river. The bridge that lights up in all colours. Not a huge amount of personal belongings - she’s come over to Segolia UK to advance with the company, so all that stuff is back home. But she likes that flat. It’s hers. A symbol. She’s on her way in a big city. It’s got a tiny balcony, and sometimes - when she needs to, when she can’t sleep - she can just stand out there and listen, and look at those lights. A symbol - to her.

Meals for one, *usually* microwaved, because work takes up a lot of time. But you can still have pride in preparing a microwave meal. You can follow those instructions just right. You can add a side to it, or select a drink you know will compliment it. You can be a microwave gourmet, and take pride in serving yourself exquisitely.

And she goes out walking. She walks that city, learning every street and turn - you never know when it will come in handy on the job. She’ll go out during the day, on weekends, or when the food market is set up and there’s eight different kinds of meat in one inhalation. But it’s at night she likes walking best. Sure, it’s full of humans, and she’d rather socialise with other Wolfbloods …but in truth she’d rather not socialise that much at all with anyone. But there are the lights again. And more than lights - now there’s music. There’s a beat. And she’ll stand across from those bars and those clubs and let that pulse flood into her. Nothing less than 110 BPM, 130 and up if you’ve got it. It makes her heart pound and she doesn’t need to move, she just feels it.

Occasionally… not often… she’ll go into one of those clubs. Even rarer, when she needs it, she’ll dance herself. Untouchable, in an extra-sensory-powered world of her own - wolfgirl’s got some moves. But most times she’ll order a drink, and stand at the bar, and feel that beat through every surface she touches. And her eyes will slide over the room, taking everything in, every detail - and sometimes she can’t tell you if it’s Robyn or Robyn the Segolia Security Operative who’s looking. And sometimes she’ll see a woman - moving, dancing, part of the beat - and find herself gazing for just a moment longer. And that’s it, because a busy Segolia Security Operative is content with her meals for one, and her modest apartment, and her beat, and that’s the way it is for now.

And now that’s all gone.

There’s no Segolia. There’s no apartment. Her world’s blown up, and now all her skills - her combat skills, her covert skills - are being put to work in a Kafe. It’s not even spelt right! And she has to be polite when brusque gets shit done much faster. And the customers are so slow to order - have they even read the menu before they come to the counter, damn it! And use. the fucking. tongs. And the owner is …she means well. She’s cheery - sometimes infuriatingly so. Forget the sometimes. Always. And her taste in television is beyond terrible - you barely used to turn yours on. And why can’t she stop talking and just let you go into your (admittedly nice) room and sleep? It’s not the same now - you can just about see the river from the windows. But not the lights, not now.

But you’ll endure. It’s better than nothing. And now all this shit with these Humans idiots is going down, and if Jana and Imara would let you, you’d just go out there and break their faces in a moment but apparently that’s frowned upon now, and Katrina definitely wouldn’t like it, and Katrina is …she’s kind of your Alpha now? That’s what she said just the other day, the Alpha of the flat. Which makes sense and is… okay, I guess? And later that day, in the evening, when I was at the counter, just after Selina & Hannah came in and wanted a late milkshake and GOD THE MACHINE WAS ALREADY OFF AND CLEANED but okay I’ll make it, and as I was doing it I looked at Katrina and she smiled at me and why is my heart pounding when there’s no beat?

And all through that pathetic Humans siege - those stupid texts they sent - I couldn’t shut that pounding off. I just wanted to be near her. And she’s my Alpha now, so that’s how it should be. …but I can’t protect her how I want to. I’m her security now. Never mind the police, never mind what her grandad says, I’m listening to the pounding and the pounding says shield her - put myself between her and danger. And she’s doing the same for me now, arguing with her grandad, and before we turned in she looked at me and smiled again - a sadder smile, but it only made the pounding MORE.

And now it’s a Dark Moon day and I feel like shit, and I’m banned from the Kafe by Katrina’s stupid grandad and I know she has to work down there but I wish she’d just come up and say hello and something’s happening down there I can hear it even without my Wolfblood abilities which means trouble and I AM GOING DOWN -

- and now there’s no Jana and no Imara, and I don’t even care if Katrina doesn’t want me to do it because he’s trying to hurt her and this fucking idiot Human is tasting tray rigHT NOW and she’s howling my Alpha is howling -

- and even now her grandad wants me gone but I won’t leave her I don’t even care what he’s saying I will not leave Katrina and …she’s… taking my hand. She has my hand and she’s saying she’s my Alpha and it’s not just the pounding the lights are back now too - -


And now Robyn’s back at the window, on that sill and ready to jump, and finally I know her, and I know why she stops and turns to Katrina, and can’t leave her. And with the most loaded use of the words “ - and more” in history will tell Katrina exactly what she means to her.

And that’s Robyn. And I’m so, so proud and so fucking lucky I got to be part of her life - even for 6 lines.

17.04.17 Kizoku Tantei Promotion - 春の新ドラマ 絶対!見たくな~るTV - Aiba Masaki [English highlights]

Aiba-san: It is a deduction drama, there are elements of fantasy, while the servants solve the mysteries, I just [a gesture of sitting behind].
Namase-san: Don’t explain the role by gesture~ But his character has no name, isn’t it great? Getsuku’s main character has no name! (all laugh)
Aiba-san: It’s novel isn’t it?

Namase-san: I act as police.
Aiba-san: Dame police… (all laugh)
Namase-san: Whether the character is dame or not is left to audience’s judgment. It’s not Aiba-kun to decide it~ My character sort of flatters Kizoku.

Aiba-san: The setting and furniture is great.
Namase-san: Several ten million dollars! The setting was close to hundred million dollars! So we really are reminded to “use them with great care!” (laugh) Why we actors have to take great care of the setting and will be angry of not to? (giggle)

MC: What is the atmosphere of the filming site?
Aiba-san: Such atmosphere~
Namase-san: What atmosphere?! Now we don’t understand at all! (giggle)
Aiba-san: Namase-san talks alone all the time. Namase-san really hates to lose! We talked about bowling, and I said that I usually got 130 or 140 scores, then he said “I got 160 scores!” (all laugh) He really hates to lose.
Namase-san: Why do you talk about this now?!! (giggle)

Aiba-san: Namase-san has acted with other ARASHI members right?
Namase-san: Right! Aiba-san is the last member I work with. (giggle)

During the quiz, Aiba-san thought about the answer seriously, the MC said Aiba-san thought about it seriously, and Namase-san tsukkomi that can’t we think about it seriously?! Why are you shocked about us thinking about it seriously?! (all laugh) And Aiba-san further said that he didn’t do deduction in drama~ and Aiba-san got the correct answer.

I think one of the most emotionally hard things to come to grips with, in terms of chronic illness, is wondering who I would have been without it. I was walking a specific path that got 130% re-routed when I got sick. And it feels like I’m in this bizarre, alternate, half baked version of my real life. And as much as I desperately want to get back on the track I was on before, even more, I want to know where that path would have led. Who would I have been? What could I have been? We always wonder what we’ll be when we grow up, and I feel like I was robbed of ever finding out.

Also I had planned to go lifting this morning before my boyfriend got home but turns out, the heating pad under my bearded dragons cage malfunctioned and got up to 130°F and now she has severe heatstroke and I’m trying to keep her alive instead.

I googled the heating pad I had (and other) and even though they are marketed for bearded dragons and other reptiles they can cause severe burns and heatstroke as they malfunction easily.

Go out and lift all the things from big name pet stores for me because they actively sell products with no regard for the animals safety!

The JC Penney in the mall here is closing, so I got 130 bucks worth of clothes for less than half that. I would have looked at jewelry, bed, bath, kitchenware, so on and so on, but I already dropped way more money than I planned on.

Summer wardrobe is banging though

Long time no post- So this year I got into Monster Hunter, and after something like 145 hours in MH4U and 130 in MHX, I beat Deviljho solo. I’d be the last person to say if I have any kind of skill at the game, but when you finally drop that pickle on legs, it feels so good. So I made this stupid comic about suplexing big lizards.

… also Rainbow pigment is the best and I will never not use it.

We bought our first house!!

Sorry for being MIA, It’s being about a month since we moved in, but it has been not stop trips to Home Depot, target and Never ending calls with our home insurance. But I have definitely enjoyed shopping for new furniture 😅 Also I’m not used to having to clean a house twice the size as my old place.

But in all honesty, I haven’t been this happy in a long time. For once I’m not focusing in just TTC. Of course it’s in the back of my mind, but it’s not my number one priority right now. My mental state and health are far more important to me right now. Buying this house has really made me feel accomplish. Which is a feeling I haven’t really had since I started my TTC journey. Right now I’m back on keto, trying to get back down to around 130. So I got about 30 pounds to lose, hopefully I can hit my goal before summer so I can start TTC again. I really want to be at a healthy weight again, I’m so tired of hiding behind layers of clothes in the summer time 😞
