She was so appalled… She stole it, not to keep, but to confront her roommate later about. She never got the chance to. She wasn’t seen for months, but eventually came back. She was different, when she did, though.. And never went near the pool again.

Okay but seriously, imagine this:

Viewers guide: 2017 Daytona Speedweeks and Daytona 500

The 2017 Daytona 500 has a lot to live up to after last year’s race produced the closest finish in the history of the Great American Race. Fans at Daytona International Speedway will also be treated to the return of Dale Earnhardt Jr. — back in action after missing the second half of last season recovering from concussions — and the 30th and final Daytona 500 of Michael Waltrip’s career.

But there is more to watch than just the 59th annual Daytona 500. A viewer’s guide to Daytona Speedweeks:

Unbelievable!

The Match Was Beyond Phenomenal. Even Though It Was A Draw, This Is A Tremendous Victory For The Lions!

Hear Them Roar, Baby!

Suzanne Lenglen (1899-1938) was a French tennis player, who dominated the world of women’s tennis from 1914 to 1926. During this time she won 31 Championship titles, and became the first female international sports star.

She won the World Hard Court Championship at the age of 15, making her the youngest winner of a major championship in tennis history, a record that still stands. She was No. 1 from 1921, when the rankings began, to 1926, and her record of 98% wins means that she is regarded as the best female player of all times.

I live in Kenya right now but I am Ethiopian/Canadian and have lived a lot of my life in Zimbabwe too. I saw all these cute penpal letter posts and fell in love with them and I would love to do something like that for someone and make a really cool friend from across the globe. I love hot chocolate, cats, literally every style of music, painting, theatre and sports.

I kinda fit into the whole artsy/liberal/grunge/hippy aesthetic (if that even exists lol) but hopefully you get what I mean.

I’m an art student so hopefully you’ll be getting some really pretty letters!

Soo I think it's only apt that I ask you now.... Do have any otabek/Yuri fic to recommend? The dirtier the better. No wait, who said that?! (๑• . •๑)

YOU BET YOUR SWEET BISCUITS I DO. (** indicates a personal favorite)

Half a Chance by ratherunnecessary (aka @justanxietyasks) ********

Yuri has never cared about anything as much as he cares about skating. Until, one day, that changes.

Or, Viktor falls in love with Yuuri, Yuuri falls in love with Viktor, Yuri falls in love Yuuri, Otabek falls in love with Yuri, and somehow everything turns out okay.

After recovering from an injury that cut his previous season short, Yuri makes a comeback with a new coach, a new country of residence, and a relationship upgrade. Still: perfection takes effort.

But I’m Not There Yet by sarahyyy

“Are you not going to read the article?” she asks, flopping onto his bed. “Look who ranked second, just after Phichit Chulanont.”

Otabek reluctantly scrolls down, and oh.

#2 - Yuri Plisetsky

In the embedded Instagram photo just under that subheading, a very grumpy Yuri is cuddling a very grumpy-looking cat. The caption reads: I found the cat version of me at the shelter today. #iknowisaidnomorecats #canyoublameme

(Or, the AU where Otabek and Yuri don’t becomes friends in Barcelona, and there are years of pining.)

His Grace the Archduke Yuri Plisetsky wins the Ballistic Grand Tournament in his debut year, at the age of fifteen.

Things go downhill from there.

a slow invasion of the heart by radialarch (aka @radialarch) **

  Yuri Plisetsky does not seduce so much as launch a full-on assault.

“Asia sucked without you,” Yuri admits eventually after a moment, as he falls backwards onto the bed, his t-shirt riding up. It must be still hot in Saint Petersburg, if the forecast is to be believed, but Yuri has the hood up, obscuring his face at this angle. “But we all went back to the hot spring run by Katsuki’s family after the Fukuoka show, so I guess it wasn’t that bad.”

A story of a relationship, told in photographs and Skype calls.

and all he has given me he takes back by verity (aka @ladyofthelog) **

That’s the point of the instructions: Yuri doesn’t have to obey any of them.

“I don’t mess with the fae,” Otabek says.

“I’m not asking you to mess with them,” JJ flat-out lies.

every time I try, every time I win by thissupposedcrime **

At least no one’s brought up couples costumes. Yuri isn’t sure how Otabek would react to a live recording of him leaping over a table to fight a reporter, a symbolic stand in for the death of Yuri’s sanity and Victor’s cutesy legacy. He guesses not well, and that is enough to hold his tongue.

Or, Otabek is naturally romantic, Yuri is naturally clueless, and somehow they work it out.

None of this has anything to do with Otabek, except that Yuri didn’t get Otabek’s number, and so he can’t bitch to him about the whole situation. He makes do with bitching to Mila, who at least agrees that Viktor is impossible to deal with right now.

Otabek keeps liking Yuri’s selfies, but that’s it, that’s the complete and total sum of his communication with Yuri for an entire two weeks. Yuri is not mad about it because there’s nothing to be mad about. They are friends and this, it turns out, is what friends do. Like each other’s selfies and make out at international sporting events. He’s pretty sure Mila’s got at least three friends that fit exactly those parameters.
