seriously good on you guys

Yuri on Ice Fic Recs, #2

The first round was so much fun, I’m going to do it again. Here’s another 8 fics that I thoroughly recommend for reading.

Fic Rec List #1 (Fluff, Angst, and WIP worth reading)

All titles include links to the fic (in case your broswer doesn’t show that handy under-line).

Not Quite Fluff, Not Quite Angst:

leave-taking by winchilsea

Moving to St. Petersburg was Yuuri’s idea. Viktor wanted to stay in Hasetsu.

My comment: Victor’s POV of the conversation about moving to St. Petersburg. It’s vaguely more angst than not, since Victor doesn’t want to go, but it’s still a sweet look at the two of them, and the author packs so many atmospheric details in just over a thousand words that you completely understand Victor’s reluctance to leave. Beautiful.

falling through the ice by lagaudiere

Home. Home is Viktor’s sparse St. Petersburg apartment, which is now where Yuri keeps his clothes and his toothbrush and his silver medal, which Viktor hung above the fireplace, and his extensive collection of Viktor Nikiforov posters, because Minako had mailed every one of them from Hatsetsu. (Yuri had shoved them into a drawer, but Viktor put some of his favorites on the fridge, next to the photos he’d had printed of Yuri in his juniors costumes.)

Home, where every time Viktor sees Yuri chattering excitedly to the triplets over Skype or hears Mari complain over the phone about the time difference, he feels guilty for keeping Yuri to himself, as if he’s the one stealing Yuri from the world now.

“What will Viktor Nikiforov’s fans say if he falls like that in competition?” Viktor sighs, not moving. “What will his protégée and rival Yuri Katsuki say?”

My comment: Lovely, with a slight bit more angst than fluff, but the ending is so sweet it’s worth it. Victor’s worries about returning to competitive life (and his own personal life with Yuuri) are what I have to think he’d have on his mind in the second season.

i took no time with the fall by lazulisong

It’s really nice, knowing Victor like this, as a real living person who hates chocolate and sleeps with his dog in his arms like a teddy bear. That he’s obsessed with the perfect selfie and remembers that Yuri doesn’t like carrots. All of those things about Victor, that Yuri gets to find out every day, over and over again.

My comment: The angst stems from the UST in this short fic that is more about Victor falling for Yuuri from Yuuri’s POV – mostly it’s just the delight of meeting someone new and getting to know them, knowing that they’re going to be immensely important to your life. If you like the subtlety of the show, you’re gonna love this.

some things require leaving by idrilka

It still amazes Victor, how much one person can feel like home.

(Or: On leaving and returning.)

My comment: idrilka wrote one of my favorite Check Please fics, so I was thrilled to find out they’re writing YOI too – and this story does not disappoint. It even has two sequels, both of which are much hotter (read: smuttier) than the first, which has gorgeous inner dialogue. All three are beautifully written.

****************

Porn, plot optional (please assume at least a Mature rating on these fics):

Touch and Go by Ashida

Victor couldn’t figure out whether Yuuri Katsuki was utterly dense, truly not interested, or if he was in fact the biggest tease to ever skate the ice.

My comment: Victor’s POV, hot as blazes. Ashida may have just become my favorite porn writer; this hit the perfect notes of frustration and UST that ends in explosive and really, really well-written sex. (Honestly, just go read everything they’ve written, it’s all gonna show up on a rec list eventually.)

*

you’re like heaven to touch by lazulisong

“Is this because I let you watch American movies as a child,” says Yakov flatly. “The ones where the popular boy gives his coat to the pretty girl?”

Victor puts up both eyebrows in a delicately mocking gesture that was unbearable when he was a fey creature of sixteen and makes Yakov yearn to clip him around the ears now, when he’s twenty-eight. “‘Let’ me?” he says.

My comment: In which we discover that Yuuri is much quicker to figure out (and act upon) Victor’s kinks than Victor actually is. Also, horrified Yurio, which is always a pleasant bonus to any fic involving kissing. (That might be the mom in me talking, though. What’s the point of having kids if you can’t horrify them once in a while?)

*

Praise Please by surveycorpsjean

Viktor is a good coach. Strict, talented.

But Viktor is kind. He gives praise like a waterfall, overflowing and loud and it makes Yuuri drown.

My comment: Okay, so I’m pretty sure Yuuri isn’t the only one drowning here; I kept drowning in the prose in this fic and forgetting to breathe. Just… lush. And then there’s the sex. Even more lush. Can one say “yum” about sex? If so, yum.

**************

The WIP I’m watching (and you should too)

Winter Song by proantagonist

The set of Yuuri’s mouth softened into a private smile as Victor squeezed his knee beneath the table. His hands were bare, free from the gloves he so often wore when they were together on the rink, and the heat of his palm burned straight through the denim of Yuuri’s jeans. He slipped his own hand beneath the table and found Victor’s. Hidden from sight, their fingers began to flirt and play. A secret conversation all their own that needed no words.

Yuuri was aware that at some point—a moment in time he couldn’t quite place—Victor had become his boyfriend.

There wasn’t a single instant when it happened. It was a slow awareness, as if Victor had silently been asking the question for months now, and Yuuri had been giving him the answer a little more with each passing day.

My comment: Everything that happens off screen during the show. I swear this is so on point, I’m nearly convinced that proantagonist is one of the show creators. SO FLIPPIN GOOD, OMG. The writing is utterly captivating, the characterizations are perfect, and the sex is fantastic, too, guh.

Parents should not make their child feel scared

Parents should not make their child feel trapped

Parents should not make their child feel threatened

Parents should not make their child feel worthless

Parents should not make their child feel stressed

Parents should not make their child feel abandoned

Parents should not make their child feel unwanted. 

Parents should not make their child feel depressed

Parents should not make their child feel suicidal

Look, guys, I know this is generally a happy music blog, but this is a serious issue. So many people close to me are affected by emotional abuse from their parents. I am affected by how my parents treat me. I’m a mess because of it. If you know someone with parents who treat them like they don’t matter, please give them a hug. They need it. 

If you are a parent, or future parent, please treat your child with respect. Make them feel loved and wanted. Be gentle. Let kids be kids. Let them know you’re there, but give them room to grow and explore. Be the parent you wish you had.  You don’t want your child to end up depressed and suicidal. No parent in their right mind would want that. Please, take your child’s emotions into account. They matter. 

And for my fellow pals dealing with bad parents, stay strong. I believe in you. Keep dreaming big. You will reach your goal, and shove it in their face and say “I made it”. Don’t let them drag you down. You are all kings and queens, and can do anything you want to. Keep fighting. 

I had a dream last night that I was Megamind

and it was E X C E L L E N T.

It was pre-movie; I was in the middle of an evil plot that was outside the Evil Lair and Roxanne was there (!!!) and tied up, only it was really windy out and she said she hadn’t gotten her hair cut in a while, so it was a little long. 

And it kept blowing in her face, so she finally got annoyed enough with it that she told me to get a pair of bobby pins out of her purse and pin it back for her.

(!!!!!)

aaaaaaahhhhhhh and I brushed her hair back from her face and I ALMOST DIED OF HAPPINESS, LET ME TELL YOU.

Also, it is INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT to pin someone’s hair for them when you have never had hair of your own, so I was S T R U G G L I N G, but Roxanne thought it was funny and she laughed (!!!)

And I finally got her hair pinned out of her face, and she jokingly asked if she looked funny and I was already pretty flustered so I was like “no no; you look really pretty!”

and she raised her eyebrows at me and said I must rate my skills as a hairdresser pretty high and I started babbling about how she always looked pretty and it was EXCRUCIATINGLY EMBARRASSING OH MY EVIL GODS.

But Roxanne seemed to think that was funny, too, which (!!!! ??? !!!!)

And then Metro Man showed up, only I’d been so busy with Roxanne that I hadn’t actually even set up the evil plot, so I decided to pretend that there…wasn’t an evil plot. And we were still technically on the Evil Lair grounds, and Metro Man isn’t supposed to attack there unless there’s an evil plot happening.

But Metro Man was all suspicious, so I was like “no, really, nothing happening here” only he insisted that Roxanne was there, and barged past me to look for her and I was like ‘shit’, but when we got to where she had been tied up, she wasn’t there.

(she must have escaped while I was gone)

So Metro Man left and I was like “well, this day is a bust, might as well take a nap,” so I went to my bedroom and took off my shirt and lay down on the bed and okay, maybe I wasn’t exactly intending on napping, per se, but luckily I didn’t do much more than think about…that…because 

THE CLOSET DOOR OPENED AND

ROXANNE POPPED OUT

And I screamed and launched myself off the bed.

When Roxanne finally stopped laughing at that, she told me she’d gotten lost looking for the exit after she escaped, and had hidden in the closet. 

She also added “now you know how it feels when people break into your house and jump out at you, Megamind.”

I was like “I HAVE NEVER JUMPED OUT OF YOUR BEDROOM CLOSET AT YOU, MISS RITCHI; THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR.”

And she was leaning up against the doorframe of the closet and I was on the floor in front of her, trying to find my shirt so I could put it on, only it was all inside out and I was flustered because Roxanne (!!!) was in my bedroom (!!!) and she was looking at me with this–expression of amused fondness and it was really difficult to try to function with that happening–

She was teasing me about screaming, which she never does, when I woke up.

…and I just realized, typing this out, that she could have easily waited for me to fall asleep before sneaking out to find the exit, but she deliberately came out of the closet while I was still awake, so she must have wanted to–see me–talk to me–interact with me more–

DAMN IT, WHY DID THE DREAM HAVE TO END THERE?!?

FanArt

Can I just say that I’ve seen so much amazing fan art on here. And some of y'all don’t even think your art is that good, that’s the crazy part. You are all SO extremely fucking talented, and I really enjoy looking through the tags and seeing all the different styles and designs. Like damn. And I know this doesn’t mean anything coming from me, but I just wanted to say this, because these communities are damn talented and just plain awesome, and you should be so proud of the things you make, fucking hell.

warning: incredibly sappy. )

“You guys are so sweet, You’re making me blush! (๑´ლ`๑)フフ♡”

When life gets you down, just remind your terrific selves:

Cassie’s face, though.

And continuing my trend of Disney characters with vending machines, here’s a proper Zootopia piece!! I love the story, characters, and world so much and I hope I captured a bit of all that in the piece. Shout out to friends @wingza and Steph for the many critiques and pushing to get me to finish in time for Fanime. It seriously wouldn’t look this good (or be done) without you guys~ ^^

just a tip: for young artists, it’s probably best to steer clear of the internet before you reach an older age like later teens.

take your time to ENJOY your art and love it. find some personal friends to share your art with.

the internet is VICIOUS. nobody will give a damn if you don’t draw something along the lines of fanart or memes. it will only make you feel worse and pressured to please the tough crowd.

the internet will likely kill your art drive. i’m not even kidding. if before, you’d draw because you love it… the internet will make you draw what it wants you to. eventually you draw not because you love to, but because the internet tells you to. and most likely you don’t really have the passion for it anymore and you feel dead inside.

the internet is a popularity contest. it does NOT look for skill 90% of the time. no matter what you post, if you’re popular, everyone will love it. no matter your skill level, if you’re NOT popular, you’re nothing. and the internet WILL make sure you get the message.

followers are just numbers. do you even know who your followers are? why get obsessed with how much you have, then?

fans are just fans. some of them will end up your friends, most will leave you when they are no longer interested in you. just as some people treat them like mere numbers, most of them will treat you like an object.

popularity isn’t forever. someday you’ll be in that one corner of the internet when nearly nobody will remember you. you may be lucky if you actually hold out long enough, but most figures are entirely forgotten.

do yourself a favour and love your art in the purest way possible and stay out of the net til you think you’re ready. LOVE YOUR ART. love yourself. take care out there, darlings.

The Choi twins 

I just really wanted to draw these little nuggets???

Idk what it is about really cute family? But I really love when there’s a lot of familial bonding, particularly when they argue a lot but still love each other like a ton? It really does warm my tiny cold heart ;w; <3 


Yes I made Saeran shorter on purpose lol. 

1. He’s hunched over slightly while seven stands straight up. 

2. it actually says on the VIP bio’s that not only is Sae bae shorter than seven but also much thinner??? Like omg he’s literally only a few pounds heavier than me (i’m actually pretty thin) and hes taller?????? Not healthy at all, boy go get a sandwhich omg plz don’t die;;; 

Tumblr is sometimes so problematic. People always try to find negative things about everything. Racism when it is not there, discrimination when it is not there and so on. Not everything is done because of negativity. Sometimes it is just done for the story without the thought to shut someone or something in a corner and to cover it up. Just stop looking for negative shit

MODERN DRAGON AGE | SOLAS 
[requested by anonymous]

Cat Person — Sirius Black Imagine.

This may not be good, but I seriously enjoy writing it xD hope you guys enjoy it as well.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Y/N was definitely a cat person, she had been since forever, she had four cats at home and her favorite one with her at Hogwarts.

She found herself in the Gryffindor common room with her Siamese cat in her lap, petting it gently was she talked to Mary MacDonald and Lily Evans.

Soon the marauders entered to the common room between laughs, apparently discussing about a recent prank they pulled off. They say in a couch near the girl and as soon as Sirius Black saw the ball of fur in the girl’s lap he groaned.

“Ugh, a cat? Really? Don’t tell me you’re a cat person” he said with repulsion against the little animal. Y/N frowned.

“What’s wrong with me being a cat person? Cats are clean, independent and cute” she defended and the black haired guy looked at her in disbelief.

“They’re evil! They’re traitors and they only use you for food!” He refuted “Dogs are waaay better, they’re loyal and nice and they always love you” Y/N rolled her eyes.

“Sirius, I’ve been having this cat since I was five years old, I guess she’s pretty loyal, isn’t she? And no, the dogs are just clingy, my cat loves me, just that’s she’s not always looking for my attention” she said and Sirius looked at her offended.

“Oh, it’s so on” he said in a challenging way.

For the next week they kept fighting about which animal was better, their friends couldn’t handle it, why were they so obsessed with that?

Finally, Remus stopped their fight “SHUT UP GUYS, JUST SHUT UP” everyone was surprised to see the usually calmed Remus explode, he sighed “Seriously guys, stop and Sirius for god’s sake, just tell her the reason why have you been so insistent and let us rest of this ridiculous fight” he finished and went upstairs as so did everyone.

“There’s a reason?” She asked him and Sirius blushed very slightly, nodding, guess that was the moment.

“You know about Remus’ furry little problem, right?” Y/N nodded “Well… for the last couple of years, the guys and I had been helping him with that and my animagus form… is a dog… I guess I was afraid that if you didn’t like dogs you wouldn’t… like me” he said and she looked at him for a minute, was that a declaration? The she burst out laughing, Sirius frowned “Hey, this is serious.”

“I know, I know, I’m sorry, it’s just that… your animagus form being a dog won’t make me like you any less” she chuckled “I like you, I don’t care about that” she smiled and Sirius grinned.

“You said you like me…” he said and Y/N blushed, being self conscious of her words.

“Well…I…”

“Shut up” and with that words he kissed her, she smiled, but their kiss was suddenly interrupted by a Siamese cat “I’m gonna kill it” he said and she punched him in the arm, laughing.

“Leave my cat alone” she warned him and she kissed him again.

Whistle

Hunter: Oh how AMAZING you found something that has been around for over millions of years!~

Warlock: You smart ass its not just a whistle, its a DOG whistle.
