honestly i laughed so hard while writing this even though cat shit makes me so angry like all the time

wither me down

Summary: It’s strange, how Otabek doesn’t mind that his lungs are filled with flowers and each day is more agonizing than the last. After all, loving Yuri Plisetsky is a privilege in and of itself. (belated happy valentine’s day! warning for character death, otayuri, hanahaki au, word count: 6166)



He first meets Yuri when he is twelve, almost thirteen. He is hunched over, heaving from the strenuous exercise that Yakov made them do, and he looks up to try again when he sees him. He must be ten at the oldest, and is without a doubt the best student in that room. Otabek never pays much attention to the other students, but this time he looks at this boy, who manages to complete the exercise he’s been struggling with effortlessly.

And then the boy’s head turned to look at his direction, and he is captivated.

Older!Yuri Headcanons #2

I was so surprised to have that many people like my hc that I decided to write a part 2. Enjoy, I guess?

PS: reading the tags people reblog my hc with gives me life and has become my favourite pastime ever 

Part 1Older!Yuri Headcanons #1


- Yuri moves to his own apartment when he’s 18, and he finds that having his own space means he’s calmer, not nearly as angry with the world
- Aleksei helps him move and demands payment in cheap vodka and cuddles
- (The next morning, Beka almost crushes his phone in his grip when he checks Yuri’s Instagram)
- Yuri struggles to define his sexuality for a long time. He *knows* he’s attracted to men (… Hello, unfairly sexy dark haired Kazakh skaters) but he finds himself kissing a girl at a party once and he definitely doesn’t hate it. He ultimately decides that labels make his head hurt and settles for bisexual, but he still wonders sometimes.
- Puberty sucks and having to relearn his body after his growth spurt sucks even more
- (He still somehow manages to medal at both the GPF and Worlds that year, and Viktor hugs him tight and cries with him because he remembers how freaking hard it was and he’s honestly so proud)
- (Yuri hugs him back as hard as he can and lets go of months of stress, anxiety and pain… And for all he cares JJ and his nasty remarks can go fuck themselves because HE DID IT and he will not be embarassed by assholes being assholes)
- (It’s the first and last time winning bronze feels like a victory to Yuri)
- Aleksei strains his quad at one point and he’s such a grumpy cat ‘cause the doctors won’t allow him to train for a while. Yuri shows up at his place with vodka and a bottle of black nail polish and it actually becomes a *thing*
- They even talk about feelings
- (Yuri has a lot of feelings, especially towards a certain Kazakh skater)
- (Not that he’d admit as much if he were sober)
- (… he’s not sober though, and Aleksei has to listen to him rant angrily about how fucking good Beka looks and dear god his ass is a gift from heaven and why does he not use his IG more and does Aleksei know he’s a fucking good DJ too?)
- (Yes, he does. Yuri’s made him listen to each and every remix his Beka has ever sent to him. Repeatedly.)
- Some people don’t understand their friendship and give them shit, but it’s okay. Yuri’s no wallflower and he’s not afraid to put someone in his place, even if said guy plays hockey professionally and has something like 30kg on him
- Said guy also has the unfortunate idea of trash talking Yuri in front of Aleksei
- (that does not end well for the poor bastard)
- Not everyone’s an asshole though and Yuri realizes somewhere along the way that the hockey team has kind of adopted him? They cheer for him during competitions FFS
- How he managed to make friends still is a mystery to Yuri years later. However, he can pinpoint with the utmost precision the moment things began to change for him
- (He was 15 and an infuriating boy asked him if he wanted to be friends or not)
- His fans are as rabid as ever but they’re *his* and he will defend them to the death (even if they scare him shitless sometimes)
- He discovers RPF fanfictions when he’s 19 and honestly he’s scarred for life
- (He can understand this shipping thing with Otabek and even Aleksei, but fucking JJ?! Oh hell no.)
- (Like, seriously, what the fuck)
- Still, his friends are assholes and they won’t stop sending him links
- They eventually make a drinking game out of it where they read the raunchiest stories they can find outloud and have a shot every time their fictional selves do something outrageous
- (That usually happens every line or so, and a couple of hours into the game they’re all pretty much wasted)
- Yuri wishes he could go back to a time when he had no idea what a/b/o or mpreg meant
- (Aleksei finds it fucking hilarious)
- (Beka manages not to laugh outright most of the times)
- (*Most* being key here)
