I’d to apologize again for not doing this last week! I was really sick and had a few exams, so I didn’t have a lot of time to make lists!
For the Record by DasWarSchonKaputt, Not Rated, 10k Viktor Nikiforov, sports journalist and retired figure skater, interviews Olympic Champion Yuuri Katsuki for an exclusive piece. So, so, so amazing. I am truly speechless after reading this, it’s incredible. In my top 10.
Sugar High by arekushia, ryoseirui, Explicit, 38k (WIP) Yuuri Katsuki is a college student struggling to pay rent, tuition, and just about everything else. When he sets up an account for a sugar daddy dating app, he doesn’t expect anything to come out of it. Instead, he meets Victor Nikiforov, and so begins their walk on the fine line between their physical relationship and something more. Just updated!! One of my favourite sugar daddy fics!
Welcome to Detroit Dental and Orthodontics by stanzas, Teen, 11k Victor stops the car, turns off the engine, and Yuri rolls out the car with the attitude of every slightly inconvenienced teenager. Yuri flips his shades up, stares in disbelief at the sign in front of the well-manicured lawn squished between two old barber shops: DETROIT DENTAL AND ORTHODONTICS. “You’ve got to be fucking kidding me,” he says. LOOOOOOOOVE this fic!
Where They Are by ingthing, Explicit, 11k (WIP) They find out things about themselves and step up to each other. 🔥🔥🔥
Masquerade by Ashida, Explicit, 87k (WIP) “Just say the word.” came the whisper as Victor stepped close, behind them Yuuri was aware of guns out and at the ready, of confused men and questioned loyalties, here Victor was offering, and Yuuri was too selfish to say no. “Ok.” Yuuri smiled as this game of masquerade came to an end, what would happen now, he didn’t know, he would probably die, his family would come after him and try to put a knife in his back or a bullet between his eyes, none of it mattered, because together they would fight, and the rest of the world would finally burn. Every update of this fic kills me in the best way possible! Sexy, intense, and always riveting. Must read!
dear true love by cityboys, Teen, 72k Victor is a writer pretending to be on a break; Yuuri is a pianist pretending to not be on a break. They meet, somehow, in the backwaters of Saga Prefecture, Japan. That ending was so lovely, I really enjoyed reading this fic! One of my fave music AUs!
#Katsudamn by lucycamui, Explicit, 5.9k Victor surprises Yuuri with a trip to an adult store and gets a little more than he bargained for. Or maybe that was the plan all along. Spicy!!!

Have you ever wanted to live the way a book makes you feel? Like, the book has such a strong aesthetic and writing style and story that it makes you want to just crawl inside that feeling it gives you and live your life around it for awhile.
I’ve taken the last two weeks off of my studyblr (at least when it comes to posting original content) because I’ve been sick. I have to admit, for the first couple of days, I felt super guilty about it!
Basically for anyone in the situation of being sick, or if you’re having issues with mental health or anything else that is stopping you from being active on your tumblr, firstly I want to say don’t stress about it and definitely don’t feel guilty about it!
I’ve also created a little list of tips for how to keep going if you are sick:
1. Take a break if you need to
Seriously, you will feel so much better if instead of pushing yourself to absolute exhaustion and burn out if you take a step back and don’t worry about it. Just be smart in how you do that.
If you’re super sick and literally can’t do anything, that’s totally fine!
On the other hand if you’re sick but you’re well enough to do things this is where you need to be smart about how you do it.
Classes for me are usually a priority, just because I’m worried that I’ll miss information. If there are classes that aren’t as important though (which sounds bad but for me that’s one of my Chinese classes because all the work is posted online) then do take that time for yourself!
If it comes to studying, I usually stick with light revision and I shorten the period of time that I study. In this, don’t be too harsh on yourself either! So like, if you’ve done 15 minutes but you’re struggling to stay focussed, listen to your body! Do something else, you can get back to it later if your head is a bit clearer.
Assignments are also something I tend to avoid when sick unless absolutely necessary. Usually I will have prepared in advance so I don’t have many issues with that, I just find that if I’m sick, it’s definitely not an assignment that I would want to hand in.
Now, is there anything extra curricular that you’re forcing yourself into? Consider how you’re feeling and use that to determine whether or not you’ll go. It’s probably not a good idea to do a really intense workout, for me that kind of kills my lungs and I tend to feel more sick afterwards. If it’s something like debating, or a music club, or some kind of social thing, again, you’ve got to listen to your body in this one and figure out if it’s worth it. Last time I went out to a social event when I was just slightly recovering from a flu, I ended up with a lung infection covering half of my right lung and was out for two entire weeks. Definitely not worth it, and not something that I have repeated.
Your studyblr definitely falls into the last category too. I’d say this is one is just an unnecessary pressure that we put on ourselves.
2. Try to eat
This is one of the things that I struggle most with when I’m sick. I have a temperamental appetite at the best of times and when I’m sick my appetite is the first thing that I lose.
All I can say is try to find foods that you enjoy eating and try to eat at least a bit of them. If you’re really struggling when it comes to consuming any solid foods I totally recommend just trying some kind of a chicken or vegetable broth. My father always cracks an egg into a broth and it’s got a bit of nutritional value and isn’t super hard to eat.
3. Stay hydrated
Seriously, drink whatever it is that you can. You’ll see a lot of health professionals that will say drink whatever you can, whether it’s coffee or tea, or a sports drink. Obviously, your doctor will recommend water because it’s typically healthier, but what you need is to just stay hydrated and any kind of liquids that you consume will help you with that.
Also, while some of the sports drinks, juices and other alternatives may be high in sugar, they can potentially be a source of certain vitamins that can be helpful to you.
4. Get up, get outside
Basically, this one is kind of just a thing that I’m putting in because it helps me. I should probably add that you should do this if the weather is decent and also make sure that you’re dressed properly so you don’t get worse!
Yes, it can be super hard to get up and try to go outside when you’re not feeling well. But for me, a little bit of movement and fresh air is something that can be surprisingly refreshing and helpful. If not, occasionally getting up and doing a small walk inside to stretch out your muscles can help out a bit.
Vines used titles to provide contextual information that couldn’t be provided within six seconds. Most vines didn’t need context, and in fact demonstrate how little set up a narrative needs to be humorous or relatable. However, many vines were shaped by their artist’s chosen titles, a quick phrase that establishes the necessary background information to understand, if you would like, why this person is dancing like that in their shower. In this regard, vines usage of titles has much in common with poetry’s–often abstract text given setting through a concrete title.
Consider this poem by Lucille Clifton:
I seemed to be drawn
to the center of myself
leaving the edges of me
in the hands of my wife
and I saw with the most amazing
so that I had not eyes but
and, rising and turning,
through my skin,
there was all around not the
shapes of things
but oh, at last, the things
The language is powerful, but the poem takes on far more poignancy when you know the title is “The Death of Fred Clifton.” Without the title, the meaning is different. The title is not separate from the art; the title is part of it.
So what I’m saying is please put the goddamn titles in your vine compilations, come on guys, I know the ship done sailed on that front but yall you’re killing me
