Kiaronna: The Fandom’s Darling

AO3 Profile


If I were to name one writer who can take my emotions extremely high or extremely low, I would name kiaronna. Her ideas for stories may not be that intricate, but the way she writes them out effectively evokes emotions in readers.

Kiaronna (@kiaronna) has written ten works for the Yuri on Ice fandom. The most popular one, Just Hold On (We’re Going Home), has garnered over 2,500 kudos as of date. It’s an AU where Yuuri is the one who remembers what happened in the banquet in Sochi while Viktor forgets about it. It’s a simple switch on who remembers and who forgets, but the way kiaronna executes the story–showing the things that happened because of the banquet and how it affected the characters’ mindset and emotions–was all flawlessly done.

And since the story is written in Yuuri’s POV, angst definitely comes with it. Imagine: Yuuri, anxious as he is and remembering doing what he thinks are embarrassing things in front of his long-time idol. It’s one hell of “feels ride,” so you gotta be ready.

But aside from writing heart-wrenching stories, kiaronna, unexpectedly, is also good in writing humor/comedy. She has a fic entitled The Katsudon Diaries, and it’s about Yuuri trying to seduce Viktor off the ice by following everyone’s [terrible] advices.  It’s a WIP with currently four chapters in out of twenty, and has garnered over 400 kudos as of date.

The humor is really really well-written. There was never a chapter where I couldn’t stop laughing at Yuuri’s failed attempts and at Viktor’s text messages with Chris, talking about the things he did with Yuuri but not actually realizing that Yuuri had been trying to seduce him. The Katsudon Diaries is fun and light, but it makes you want to hide your face in your hands whenever Yuuri does something embarrassing. It’s a very enjoyable read, especially after reading kiaronna’s angsty fics–a quick remedy to the ache brought by such fics.

(This chapter in a nutshell: 

I thought that love was just a word
They sang about in songs I heard
It took your kisses to reveal
That I was wrong, and love is real


Chapters: 8 / 14
Fandom: Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime)
Relationship: Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov
Ao3 Taggage: Alternate Universe, Music, Angst with a Happy Ending, Jazz - Freeform, Victor plays piano, Depression, Implied/Referenced Alcohol Abuse/Alcoholism, Guys I swear this has a happy ending, VictUuri, Alternate Universe - Classical Music, yuuri is still a figure skater, Victor might also be running from something, Age Difference (past), Emotional/Psychological Abuse (past)

In another world, their story might have started with ‘Hi there’, or ‘Lovely sky tonight’, or ‘Hello, stranger’. Or perhaps something less cliché, something like: ‘A commemorative photo? Sure thing!’

But in this one, it starts with an electric blue cocktail, the taste of smoke in the air. And: “You have really talented, um. Fingers.”

Yuuri makes music with his body. Victor makes music because that’s all he knows.

(Or: After his poor performance at the Grand Prix Final, Yuuri is weary but not broken, and decides to give it one last shot. Victor plays piano three nights a week at a small jazz bar near the Detroit Skating Club, and does his best to get by.)


Blossom Dearie & The Blue Stars of France - Lullaby of Birdland (French)

anonymous asked:

tsukkiyama au where office worker kei gets caught up in an unexpected rain shower on his way home and seeks shelter in the nearest building. judging by the vibrant trill of a piano and the brilliant flare of a trumpet, he deduces that he's stumbled into a jazz bar of all places. he orders a drink and is just in time to catch the start of the next number, which is a riveting rendition of "lullaby of birdland" by a young gentleman with a voice like velvet that leaves kei spellbound. (musique anon)

The Old Days ((LISTEN))

A mix of amazing, heart-warming, old jazz. Best listened to before sleep.
