My last comic, but I’ve cut it into parts to make it easier for people to read!
Gnick eats his first Snack cake in 200 years - it’s quite an experience - for best viewing, listen to ‘Morning Dreams’ by Ladyhawke - the fancy lad hits him 11 seconds in!
(I also want to thank Mac for helping me with this! I struggled a bit with the anatomy and hat angles, and if she hadn’t have helped me with them I probably would have got frustrated with this and not finished it!)
I’ve been in a serious art funk. For about three weeks I haven’t been able to produce ANYTHING except for a painting for my friend of her dogs. I have barely touched my tablet, it was discouraging to even scribble anything out, and it felt like my will to art had vanished. My day job has also been bearing down on me and its just. been a drag.
So naturally ive been playing pokemon. And I found a new appreciation I had never had for Hawlucha. I kind of love everything about it? So I had to draw it. Here is my hawlucha currently in my pokemon X file i’m working through. She is a good girl named Shiner because she was found with a black eye and a chip on her shoulder. But yeah. I should be back to my commissions very soon (like tomorrow!) and streaming art and games again. Until then, enjoy some smol Brawlbirds.

Stargazer by Fahye, Teen, 22k “No, see, we’ve all been trained a certain way. The training system is traditional; it’s centuries old. Nobody taught you. You ballist like it’s got nothing to do with war at all.” A sleepy, extraordinary smile crawls over Victor’s face. “Nobody else does it like that. That’s why we’re going to win.” This is so, so, amazing and has beautiful illustrations in it!
Kingdoms of the Sun and Moon by OathKeeper, Explicit, 17k (WIP) Prince Yuuri, heir to the throne, is in an arranged marriage with Princess Mila. The only problem is that Yuuri’s attracted to men, and Mila’s attracted to women. Oh, and her brother, Prince Victor, is really attractive. I’m obsessed!

Even Princes Can Relate by Watermelonsmellinfellon, Mature, 6.8k Phichit got an invitation to Victor Nikiforov’s birthday celebration, and he was taking Yuuri as his plus one. The prince of Petersburg was probably the most amazing person in Yuuri’s opinion. Not once did he think that they could get along so well though. Sooooooooo good!

A/N:This is my submission for @bucky-plums-barnes 8,000 Follower Writing Challenge! Gen is amazing and deserves all the love in the world!
I enjoyed writing Strip It Down WAY too much… I want to continue this…
Prompt:#26. “Well, my normal fee is $500, but seeing that it’s for you, I’m going to need it in advance.”
The crowd loved Bucky.
Both the men and the women.
You didn’t blame them though. He owned that stage. His last set of the night was always his money maker.
Standing off to the side of the stage you peeked over the edge of the curtain at the screaming women that were vying for his attention. The sea of green bills that pooled around his feet was enough to pay your monthly rent… twice.
The low bass vibrated through the floors as Bucky shed the last piece clothing that was ethically possible. The screams, catcalls and hollers from the crowd drowned out the words to the song. You clutched your robe tighter to your body as you watched him move.
He moved like sex.
He crouched down on his hands and knees, prowling across the stage like a wolf. His hair was falling out of the bun at the back of his head, the loose tendrils framing his face. His back muscles bunched and stretched with each movement. He stopped and pumped his hips in time to the beat. God, to be underneath him and feel those powerful strokes.
Scanning the crowd again, you knew you weren’t the only one in the house tonight thinking that exact same thing.
McQueen’s crash was really fucking brutal like god damn they did such a good job with that scene like I know everyone is all “oh haha he dies” but sitting in the theater watching it happen you just feel paralyzed because holy shit. Anyways, major kudos to Pixar for making that probably my favorite scene in the whole movie because of the beautiful cinematography.
Jackson Storm!!! I thought I was gonna hate him, and I did he is a grade A jackass, but just oh man he’s just so fucking cool and sleek and the black and blue coloring is sooo good. Yes I hate him but also I love him.
The colors of all the new gen racers were so great!! They were all so sleek and shiny and cool looking and colorful!
At first I didn’t really like Cruz, she kinda bugged me in the overly happy kind of way, but that didn’t remain the case because OH MY GOD I’M SO PROUD OF MY DAUGHTER!!!
McQueen doing the warm up exercises to get Cruz to come with him was so great. McQueen is A+ dad material.
McQueen mentoring Cruz on the beach without even realizing he’s mentoring her gave me life.
The entire demolition derby.
I was honestly expecting the school bus to be a guy so I was absolutely ecstatic that it ended up being a girl!! Anyways, I love Miss Fritter she’s fantastic and amazing and so badass.
Fritter trying to straight up kill McQueen and then later while being interviewed being all exited and saying how she’s always liked McQueen was so cute.
“Racing wasn’t the best part of Doc’s life, you were.”
I can’t believe Doc Hudson is a gay icon.
I make a post about a week ago predicting that Cruz would race in McQueen’s place AND I WAS RIGHT, I WAS RIGHT, I WAS RIGHT!!!
McQueen up on the platform with the headset on coaching Cruz almost broke me I was flipping the fuck out oh my god he was the splitting image of Doc it was amazing.
Cruz doing the wall flip trick. I had a fucking conniption fit it was so good it was perfect it was, although a bit predicable, absolutely astounding.
Cruz took Doc’s number. So good. What a way to bring it full circle.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Here are some of my favourite Valentine’s day fics! Enjoy!
The Perfect Valentine’s Day by SakuraNeko, Explicit, 4.9k After suddenly realizing that Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, Yuuri wants to make sure that their first one together is perfect. When things don’t go as planned, will Victor be able to give Yuuri the perfect Valentine’s Day that he wanted? LOVE!
Just go with it, all right? by IdunAurora, Gen, 4.2k Viktor treats his husband to a romantic evening on Valentine’s Day, and as they enjoy their bath together, they reminisce their first meeting on that very day five years prior. The evening that turned from full-on miserable to fairy tale-level wonderful against all odds. THIS IS SO CUTE AND VICTOR IS A HERO
Be my Valentine by dancey94, Teen, 2.6k Yuuri attends an event for singles with little enthusiasm. He expects to eat some food, have a drink and leave. What follows exceeds any expectations. Cute!
Deck the Halls with Love and Folly by sushicorps (Inclinant), Gen, 4k “Well…” Viktor starts but doesn’t continue because where does one even go with “I am really a world champion figure skater but I got distracted because I think you’re really cute and now you’re offering to teach me how to ice skate and I’m actually about to say yes?” THIS IS SO GOOD PLEASE READ IT! The author just updated today and added a quick V-Day story!
So I’m going to premise this rec list by saying that I like fics on the long-side so if you’re looking for short one-shots, you might not find what you’re looking for in this list. I’m not a huge fan of angst (although that doesn’t mean there isn’t any in this list, just not a lot), I enjoy smut
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
, I like a fair few rarepairs and I like to think that I’m extremely picky when it comes to how something is written, pacing etc. I’ve read all the fics in this list multiple times, they are definitely my all-time favourites. I organized these as best as I could and included the rating, word count and summary from the author for each.
(Fics with a ♡ beside them are my 100% must-reads.)
