Calliope

Forevermore, she is
never apart
flows through veins
liveth in the artists chamber
the fourth corner of the heart

Holds his gaze while she dances
breathes life into eyes
lays in his art
cradles the mind
journeys through the abyss of creation
in the depths of the genius
his well of inspiration
she giveth the spark
melodious whispers
caresses thy ears
ethereal hymns in its chime
soothing his musical sphere

Her tongue, speaketh in thy rhymes
he translates her
poetry into songs
verses metamorphosize
in musical notes

Her Apollo, his Calliope
King of sound
Muse of poetry

-Hanna Adams I.

The Completed Works

Unwritten (by kaizuka) Teen and Up Audiences

(34k words)

Soulmates AU where whatever you write on your own skin appears on your soulmate, but when there is a language barrier, meeting becomes just a little more difficult than it should be.

I just wanted to hit them and talk about it already BUT THEY SIMPLY DIDN’T so the suspense was real and the angst knocking on the door.


like your french girls  (by ebenroot) Teen and Up Audiences

(102k words)

in which Victor is an artist, Yuuri is his figure skating muse, and Yuri is so done hearing about their stupid love story through Instagram

It was funny and lovely and it had it’s angsty bits…I JUST LOVE ALL THE CHARACTERS IN THIS SO MUCH???!!! Yurio was just precious, Mila was super funny, Phichit was his usual glorious self, CHRISTOPHE WAS ON POINT just…READ IT


Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches (by Reiya) Explicit

(197k words)

A single event changes the course of Yuuri’s life, throwing him into a bitter rivalry with Viktor Nikiforov that spans across his entire skating career. But as the years go on, rivalry and hatred begin to develop into something very different and Yuuri doesn’t seem to be able to stay away, no matter how hard he tries.
Hatred and love are two sides of the same coin and even though everything changes, some things are still meant to be.

i’m pretty sure everyone and their mother has already read this fic by now and i’m wondering why it took me this long to finally read it??? it’s so good. exactly what the summary promises. SO GOOD. Also as you may know by now i’m absolutely weak for authors including social media in their fics and this fic has so much of that i feel #blessed. WHY HAVEN’T YOU READ THIS YET?! DO IT.


The WIPs

Expomise (by thankyouforexisting) Teen and Up Audiences

(6 chapters, 71k words so far)

Yuuri is at Hogwarts. So is everyone else.

THE HOGWARTS AU WE ALL NEEDED! (i definitely need more though) 
starts in Yuuri’s 1st year. Each chapter is either a new school year or about the summer in between. Yuuri does ballet, Viktor is really famous, Leo pays Phichit’s smart phone bill, Yurio is Yurio. THERE’S MAGICAL FIGURE SKATING. 


Switched (by GhostsOnSaturn) Teen and Up Audiences

(7 chapters, 23k words so far)

Soulmates AU where your consciousness occasionally swaps places with that of your soulmate for varying amounts of time.

REALLY CUTE SO FAR. Viktor is a hopeless romantic and Yuuri just wants to impress people.


solo and pair (by calciseptine) Teen and Up Audiences

(9 chapters, 22k so far)

Yuuri keeps his mark hidden.

Another Soulmate AU…there’s soulmate identifying marks and YUURI JUST ACCEPT THAT YOURS AND VIKTOR’S MATCH DAMN IT…also describes his childhood and how he got to where we met him in episode 1.


Pacing Ourselves (by vermillion_crown) Teen and Up Audiences

(6 chapters, 41k words so far)

Introspection on intimacy from the perspective of a demisexual, flavored with friends who are social media menaces and some dirty touching later on.
(Yuuri’s trying to figure out his life after Viktor Nikiforov smashes into it like a meteor, and Phichit can’t decide whether to help or laugh.)

NICE NICE NICE. Yuuri is very confused, Phichit is hilarious, Viktor doesn’t really know what’s going on. Yuuri getting to know and coming to terms with his sexuality AND a bit of him growing up, very nice. READ IT.


Excelsior (by powerandpathos) Explicit

(13/19 chapters, 77k words so far)

Yuuri has won the Grand Prix, which was everything he thought he wanted. But for Yuuri, an end to skating could mean an end with Viktor, and when two female skaters approach them with an offer that could make them or break them, they are put to the test more than ever. Can they rise higher than they already have?

READ 👏🏼 THIS 👏🏼 FIC
It’s VERY different from all the other fics…I guess it is cause it’s a bit darker? I just really love the plot so far. I’m SO EXCITED for the remaining chapters. Seriously, read it!!!


Constellations (Things You Left Unsaid) (by DasWarSchonKaputt) Teen and Up Audiences

(7 chapters, 28k words so far)

a role reversal au, wherein Yuuri is a figure skating legend in the making - mostly made, or so they say - who decides to take a season off at the peak of his career, and Victor is the runaway-cum-international student from Russia who joins his university and cons Yuuri into becoming his coach. Featuring Phichit Chulanont as the worst (best) friend ever, and Yuri Plisetsky as Yuuri’s self-proclaimed Arch Rival.

alright. so. this AU idea is amazing??? I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE BITS OF MEDIA ??!! like the articles and stuff…also the chat logs? it makes a fic seem so much more real, always have been a sucker for that. I’m really excited to see where the author’s gonna head with this!! this fic has a lot of potential so far so we’ll just have to wait and read I guess.


Gone Like Smoke (by InkHallucination) General Audiences 

(6/30 chapters, 23k words so far)

About three things everyone knew about Yuuri Katsuki.
One, at the age of fourteen he had broke the Junior’s world record with one of the most beautiful performances to ever grace the ice.
Two, he had vanished under the eyes of thousands of people right after the end of his free  skate, never to be seen again.
Tree, today in the tenth anniversary of his disappearance, he was found in the same ice he was last seen into, bloody, shaken and with only two words to pronounce, Viktor Nikiforov.
Viktor is conscious that he may be a little bit obsessed with the infamous Katsuki case, even trough that same obsession was the reason behind the success of his now best selling book Yuri on Ice, which was said to be the best investigation to the date about it. That’s why, when he’s called to become a consultant in the reopening of the case, he’s more than eager to participate. But why does the world seem to bend at Yuuri’s whim? And how is that he seems to know him when he’s been gone for a decade?

that’s one long summary but LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS FIC. I just started reading it two days ago and as soon as I read the new chapter today I thought: this has to be in my rec list. THIS FIC. IS SO FULL OF SUSPENSE. WITH ONLY 13k WORDS SO FAR??!!! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE???!! no but seriously this fic is sO suspenseful and thrilling and I just want more chapters already. this is NOT a fluffy relationship-focused fic, so if that’s what you’re looking for ignore my shouting. If you liked stranger things you’re gonna like this. Trust me on that.

Fall in love with a poet.

Because they will give
Their hearts to you.

Because they will compose
Sonnets in your name.

Because they will love
Your soul and spirit.

Fall in love with a poet.

Because there is nothing greater,
Than an artist falling in love with his muse.

Because there is nothing greater,
Than thinking in colors.

Because there is nothing greater,
Than growing old with another soul.

But most of all,
Fall in love with a poet.

Because when you die,
You will live forever.

—  E.M.P // “Reasons Why You Should Fall In Love With a Poet”
Portrait Of You

Alfred is an aspiring artist in his last year of high school. Arthur is his muse, even if he doesn’t know it yet. Usuk. //

Alfred stared dreamily at the figure a few seats away from him, his pencil moving fast and precise. He had an open sketchbook on the table, and was drawing the person’s likeness during their school’s lunch period.

Said person went by the name of Arthur Kirkland, and he’d come from Bristol at the beginning of the school year. His mother had to move for work, or at least, that’s what everyone seemed to think. Though, he wasn’t sure, as he and Arthur didn’t get a chance to speak often.

But, Alfred was a little embarrassed to admit that he’d developed a crush on the other boy. He wasn’t the only one, either. Arthur’s accent and wit made him popular among the American students. So Alfred had some competition. Not that he’d ever hint to Arthur that he liked him, anyways.

Arthur laughed at something one of his friends said, and Alfred hurried to copy the smile down onto his paper. He looked at his work, and changed a few details before he was satisfied with the outcome. Alfred closed his book, and tucked it under his arm.

Muse (P1) // Isaac Lahey x Reader

Pairing: Isaac Lahey x POC Reader
Word Count: 1.1k+
Warning:Fluff, maybe one bad word.

Summary: You’ve always been a sucker for blue eyes and  broad shoulders. Isaac could never say no to a pretty smile and a gorgeous laughter, especially not from his artist and artistic muse. Is that enough to say yes to a date?


A/N: I’m sorry I’ve neglected you guys for so long. It’s a lot harder writing for two blogs than I thought it would be. I hope you guys like this fluff series, I missed writing Isaac a lot and man do I need to stop writing angst lol. Feedback is always appreciated!

When Artists Fall in Love: A Tragedy

I met a guy.


Nevermind.



No, wait. I met a guy.

He…intrigues me. He speaks in future-tense and hyperbole – a fused language I thought was dead. He is clear in his intentions and direct about wanting me.

He is an artist.

With his words. The way he speaks. With his voice. The way he sings. With his mind. The way he thinks.

I told him that I don’t really date artists. No one values their creations until they’ve carved memories into a casket. He may not value his own creations until they are carved memories –  Everyone throws money at a tombstone. It isn’t fair that the world is like this; but that doesn’t change that I try to stay away from artists…

I had fallen amused with a man who called me his muse and I was afraid to hurt him. I hated tip-toeing around the glass of broken bottles all over the kitchen floor. He was mass destruction confined in closed quarters, in a box labeled fragile, I thought I would break him. How does one waltz around thumb tacks and mouse traps? But, he’d pull me to dance like no one was watching, and whisper sweet nothings because no one was listening. We were two artists trying to paint on one canvas, with little regard for all the damage we could cause, and no apology in sight.

I thought I had fallen in love with this artist. He made me feel when I had gone numb. I never felt like I would be the woman he needed me to be. He called me his inspiration…and I didn’t like having that kind of pressure thrust upon me.

I had convinced myself that I had fallen in love with this artist. It was like Pablo Picasso had dropped a mixtape, he made songs in hues of blue. They were abstract but they made sense to me. I could hear his thoughts in the melodies of trumpets and piano, though he wasn’t speaking. I could understand him…. And I think he understood me because I ad-lib and sing along. I never asked. I like it better this way.

I knew I fell in love with this artist…and that it would be nothing more than a beautiful disaster. We would never learn how to close doors, paint with regard to our floorboards, or say goodbye…because we were artists.
