Phayte’s Reads for the Week
June 10th Updates
So apparently people were LOVING making me cry this week! Dang it! Some really good stuff this week! Angst, Tears and HAPPINESS all week long!!!!!!
PLEASE READ TAGS TO THESE STORIES BEFORE PROCEEDING! The authors are AMAZING at tagging their works - Mixed rating through all of these as I read ALL diff ratings through out the week!
If I Can’t Find You There, I Don’t Care - @the-stoned-ranger - I am so in love with this story and when came to me about when she went to start it, I wasn’t sure, though I know to NEVER doubt what my saltwife writes, it is too perfect, too good. She is fucking amazing! UPDATED THIS WEEK - Four years after Barcelona, Yuri Plisetsky still hasn’t gotten over his awkward teenage crush on Yuuri Katsuki, his married rival-cum-coach. Though he has always longed for something more, Yuri has too much to lose if he acts on his feelings.But all that changes one night in Salt Lake City, when Yuuri accompanies his two young protégés to Skate America without his husband. Salsa dancing and a stolen bottle of scotch lead to the kind of bad decision that changes everything. How will Viktor, Yuuri, and Yuri begin to put themselves back together after it all falls apart?
Bizarre Love Triangle - @blownwish-blog - OtaPliRoy - SO FUCKING GOOD!!!! Just finished this this morning! Yuri Plisetsky met them both on his knees in the boys’ room. One would stay, the other could not. America was one fucked up country.(The 80s high school au you didn’t ask for.)
Suit Up! - @francowitch - My love can write her ass off and impress me at every moment! - More OtaPliRoy - When Otabek and JJ are tired of Yuri just playing video games, they Suit Up and have a little fun with their kitten…
Mischievous Friends - @definitelynotadulting - OMG THIS SHOOK ME! - The skaters play Never Have I Ever at Leo’s birthday party and learn what a bad boy quiet Otabek is. Or in which Bad Boy DJ Otabek is Yuri Plisetsky’s aesthetic.
Yakov Feltsman Defends All of his Ridiculous Children - preciousbunnynoiz - (Sorry I dont have their Tumblr name) Yakov holds a press conference and the press is stupidly rude about his skaters. He will not let it stand
Not a random one - @aftgonice - THIS WAS SO GOOD! He found that those fluffy and sweet fan fictions were starting not to
be enough anymore. His feelings for Otabek weren’t of the innocent type,
and while he was already used to fantasize about them, he’d gotten so
used to actually reading that one day he just slipped. He found a pretty vanilla one, and promised himself that it would be enough. It was a one time thing, it had to be.
Unsteady - @victuri-oh-nice - COMPLETE - I am so going to miss this story and reading it every week! You did so good honey! Loved it! -
Otabek was going to kill JJ. He was going to take the next flight to Canada, hunt him down and kick his ass.
Leo: I tried to stop him but he went and did it anyway, I’m sorry! (link)
To Have the Tiger by the Tail - @caeseria - TENTACLES! TENTACLES! OMG TENTACLES! (dont kink shame me dammit, lol) It’s not often that Yuri is caught by surprise, but when he discovers Katsudon doing something he shouldn’t, Yuri’s curiosity gets the better of him.
to be young and in love - @yours-julie - DAMMIT I LOVE THIS STORY! This made me snot ugly cry and OMG I love this story! Yuri is stuck in a small town where time stands still, spending his days working in a crappy Diner and dancing his nights away at dodgy clubs, dreaming of the day he can get out & wishing for something interesting to happen.
Just a Little Prick - @accidental-mormon - Yuri Plisetsky is a tattoo artist at the locally-famous eros + agape body arts. When Otabek Altin accompanies a coworker for his first tattoo, he finds that it’s not the artwork that draws his eye. [tattoo artist!yuri] [dj!otabek]
A Thorn in the Tiger’s Paw - @theinsanefox - OMG SOOOOOO GOOD! When Yuri falls during practice one day and hurts his knee, he is devastated to find out that he’ll need to take the rest of the season off while he heals. He quickly finds himself falling into a deep depression so Otabek offers to come stay with him for a few weeks. Yuri is grateful but still feels like something is off, probably because he misses the ice so badly.
Overload - @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.”
Smooth Criminal - @victuri-oh-nice - When Officers Plisetsky and Nikiforov are called to a bar fight, Yuri is not even surprised to find the instigator of the entire thing being none other than Otabek Altin, a known gang member with an outstanding track record. Waiting until the station clears out feels like a waste of time until he can take Otabek for a one-on-one ‘conversation’, if you ask Yuri.
Still - Halrloprillalar (prillalar) - At competitions, Christophe has an arrangement where he doesn’t know who will show up in his room at night. After the GPF Free Skate, he waits to find out who it will be this time.
a place on Earth, with you - @melonbugg - I swear everyone wants me to cry… they wanna rip my heart and stomp it this week! - Yuuri didn’t want to die, he didn’t want to die. And he didn’t want to die alone.The world was ending, and they were just two souls, desperate for someone to share their final days with.A Seeking a Friend for the End of the World AU
Born to Lose - @boxwineconfession - Anything HBB I will gagg over and ask for more! The Heart Break Beat Prequel fic nobody asked for.
Who’s the Biggest Dick? - @rodiniaorzetalthepenquin - This is TOO CUTE for words! She always amazes me with her stuff! Leo finds an article that causes many giggles, some speculation, a fight, and Yuri to start questioning his life choices.
High Noon - (shit, there are so many of you… I hope I get this right) @lovelytitania - @cleardye - @evermoredeath - @father-nikiforov - @linnorm - @proserpineceres - @sebuckwheat - Yall are fucking crazy and I love you all! - Mysterious thing, an unstable plot. Powerful, and when meddled with, dangerous.
