this is hilarious in all fandoms

thesoggybug  asked:

Hi there! As someone new to this fandom, I have to say your blog is the best thing ever! What would you recommend a good fic for someone who has never read any Victuuri fanfics before? I was hoping for something really sweet (maybe nsfw?), but still in character and not AU.

Hi! Thank you! Here are some of my favourite fics that I think would be perfect for someone who is new to the fandom!

Canon Universe 

The Fundamentals of Caring by braveten, Explicit, 20k
One of my favourite hurt/comfort fics! Yuuri comes down with a nasty cold and Victor tries to take care of him the best that he can. Full of hilariously delusional Yuuri, caring Victor, and ALL THE FLUFF! So cute, definitely recommend! 

Love Like You by LFMH021, Teen, 3.6k
Little insight to retired and domestic Victuuri! Many small scenes from deciding who is going to do the dishes to grocery shopping. SO CUTE AND FLUFFY I LOVE THIS FIC SO MUCH! It’s the domestic fic you’re looking for!

stammi vicino by sunshinehide, Gen, 1k
It’s moments like these where Yuuri realizes how lucky in love he is with Victor. SO fluffy and cute!

Just for You, a Symphony from My Soul by Caeseria, Explicit, 12k
Sometimes, it’s the smaller moments – those out of the public eye – that are the most important. Lovely first time fic!

Jealous by Flightless_Bird, Teen, 4.4k
The idea prickled in the back of Yuuri’s mind and he glanced sharply at Victor again. Was he…Could he be….? Well, there was only one way to find out. SO GOOD OMG

From The Moon by ButterBeerBitch, Mature, 4.8k
Victor Nikiforov, the living legend, winner of five consecutive World Championships and five straight Grand Prix Finals - was in Yuuri’s bed. Yuuri’s bumpy, squeaky bed, with the Pokémon stickers peeling off the frame and the unwashed sheets.

#KissOrHug by Aurum, Gen, 2.2k
Yuuri and Victor make #Victuri trend worldwide. Phichit accidentally makes it worse. This is is SO cute, it’s a must read!

Safety Hazards in St. Petersburg by lucycamui, Explicit, 3.7k
In which Yuuri moves in with Victor in St. Petersburg and Victor discovers just how distracting living with him can be. I LOVE THIS FIC SO MUCH OMG

A Safe Place To Fall by uchiuchi, Teen, 8k
Victor doesn’t understand what Yuuri said during the press conference, and Yuuri

hold me in your arms tonight by isonala, Gen, 702 words
After surgery, Victor wakes up with temporary amnesia and forgets he’s married to Yuuri. Quick read, and the fluffiest of fluff. Must read!

Praise Please by surveycorpsjean, Explicit, 5.2k
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. Fluff and smut. Cute!


Alternate Universe

of dusk and dawn and a love beyond by exile_wrath, Gen, 5.5k
The King of Day, Victor, drops flowers to the Ruler of Night, Yuuri, to express his love for him; yet, they are always returned, as Yuuri thinks that they’re dropped by mistake. Day and Night AU!

Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches by Reiya, Explicit, 147k (WIP)
Rivals AU where Yuuri’s main goal, ever since he was a child, is to beat Victor and win the GPF. SO MUCH ANGST (like, so much) and deliciously hot, hot, hot! You might die from reading this… it’s that good. Thumbs up!

Amateur or Expert by Watermelonsmellinfellon, Teen, 1.9k
AU where Yuuri is a ice skating instructor and Victor is thirsty for him and will do whatever it takes for Yuuri to get to know him. Even if that means pretending to not know how to skate at all, even though he’s a five-time world champion. VERY cute, lots of fluff, and Victor is hilarious in this. Love!

#baristalife by fan_nerd, Mature, 9.6k
Coffee shop AU! Victor, proud owner of Muse café and roastery, goes searching for a local bakery to buy sweets for his store. When he does, he finds Yutopia, a quaint little place tucked away in a small part of town. The good news is, he quickly becomes business partners with the lead patissier, Yuuri. This is an amazing fic, must read! 

Expomise by thankyouforexisting, Teen, 71k (WIP)
YOI/Hogwarts crossover that is too pure for words. First year muggle-born Yuuri get paired up with the Victor Nikiforov in potions class. Filled with after school study sessions, magic, pining, and skating! LOVE!

all the world’s a stage by braveten, Explicit, 112k
Actor AU where Victor is the the most famous actor in Hollywood and Yuuri is a silver medalist at this year’s GPF… and also has a huge crush on Victor. Yuuri auditions to become his skating coach for a movie with the help of Pitchit and cuteness ensues. Lots of fluff, some angst, and a little bit of smut. Amazing fic!

Dancing Daffodils by grayclouds, Mature, 33k (WIP)
Greek God AU where Yuuri is the god of Eros who falls for Victor, a man secluded/banished from the rest of society. Very sweet, and the mix of Greek mythology and YOI works amazingly well. Definitely recommend!

Masquerade by Ashida, Explicit, 46k (WIP)
Yuuri is part of Japan’s most notorious mafias. Victor is the head of the Russian mafia. After brief meetings throughout the span of five years, they decide to go off together and leave everything behind. Mafia AU! I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS FIC!

On My Love by RikoJasmine, Teen, 48k (WIP)
Time travel AU where Yuuri and Victor are happy aged and married, but an accident occurs and suddenly Yuuri wakes up back in Detroit, in a time before he had even met Victor. Angst and pining ensues. Great fic!

ebony & ivory by wbtrashking (fan_nerd), Explicit, 20k
OH MY GOD THIS FIC IS AMAZING. Yuuri, a pianist, moves into a new apartment complex to play with the ASO. Not long after he starts practicing, he starts getting requests from his mysterious upstairs neighbour. Musician AU!

I just like that the Percy Jackson fandom is like the hufflepuff of fandoms:

  • People who don’t know about it think it’s silly 
  • We care a lot about diversity 
  • It’s lowkey gigantic, but feels small
  • Everyone from all the other fandoms is welcome 
  • Full of really nice and hilarious people 
  • We’re just happy to be included tbh

so if you haven’t been here for an age you may not know about the huge tag war of 2012 (i think?) between the sherlock fandom and the kpop fandom where this band called shinee brought out an album called sherlock and both fandoms were using the sherlock tag on tumblr and it was hilariously brutal but anyway fast forward five years and shinee are all over my dash now because of the amount of people who have moved over to the kpop fandom and it’s some sort of beautiful full circle we’ve come to

Jan. 4th, 2017 in the 100 fandom, a summary:
  • Early that morning: Discourse, discourse, discourse......
  • Later that day: shitty season 4 promo poster that isn't the real poster
  • After that: More discourse
  • Later: Surprise bitches new promo trailer heavy with Bellarke
  • After that: Bellarke stans everywhere losing their shit

I don’t want to rain on anybody’s fandom fun but I find it kind of hilarious everybody pegs Keith as resident conspiracy theorist when like

Keith, in episode 1: So I just felt weirdly compelled to go out in the desert and look for something, found carvings that led me to anticipate some kind of arrival and I knew I had to go meet whoever was coming and get them away from the Garrison. It turned out aliens were involved but that’s really not that important? Also I’ll just talk about it like all of this is normal and be mildly put-out when someone makes fun of me. Weird pseudo-clairvoyance is just a normal thing that happens to everyone, right?

Pidge, in episode 1: I infiltrated a government space exploration program by falsifying my identity and secretly built equipment to listen for alien radio chatter which I regularly sneak out of the dorms to do. I did this because said government space program is definitely lying to me about the disappearance of this space mission and the one time I told someone about it, I specifically told them that the world as they knew it was about to change.

I mean, in general, Pidge puts an incredibly high priority about finding information and getting answers- the whole green paladin ‘inquisitive’ thing- while Keith is much more that he has a vague, but strong-held feeling of something that’s right and he’ll pursue that single goal, details don’t matter to him nearly as much. People talk about his “conspiracy chart” but all he really had there was pictures of the carvings and a map where he seems to have narrowed down exactly where the energy was coming from. 

So I guess, proposed alternative measure: Pidge who is determined to chase weird stuff and Keith who is just. the incredibly ride-or-die friend about it. 

Pidge opens the door to Keith’s room at 3AM “KEITH C’MON I THINK THIS PLANET HAS A GHOST”

Keith is like. half awake and already putting on his jacket. “jeez, okay, let me find where we left the camera last time.”

That’s the perfect description of what happen to all of us after watching a marvel movie. 😂

Noragami is actually gold like honestly??? I don’t even consider it an anime/manga anymore. It’s just a story to me.
Everything about Noragami brightens my day and gives me a reason to live:

- Noragami, an underdog story
- powerful female lead
- the trio’s relationship is so strong and supportive
- shinki are people who have a desire to live
- all characters are well developed and easy to be emotionally attached to
- like honestly, I’d kill even for a spin off about Ebisu’s hilarious shinki
- story created by Adachitoka, two amazingly talented women
- the cast of Noragami is extremely heartwarming and have AMAZING chemistry. - the Noragami tumblr fandom is incredibly kind and welcoming; to me, the best fandom on tumblr
- the tumblr fam has some of the best fanfic writers and fanart-ists
- two hella amazing OPs and emotional EDs
- possible season 3
- the Noragami dub is one of the best dubs I’ve ever seen. rare.
- the manga is ongoing (as of now, ch 72), and the quality hasn’t dropped a single bit
- the anime has done an amazing job of adapting Adachitoka’s work
- I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. The artwork/animation and soundtrack. Is insane.

Noragami is something that will live with me forever. Even IF (not when ;-;) it ends, I will forever respect and give thanks to this beautiful story and these characters that have helped me through hard times.

I’m going to be gradually adding more to this list. Adachitoka, I can’t thank you enough.

I found an author on Ao3 who strictly writes hilarious (mostly hilarious, some serious) DC fanfic. I need to be clear; I’m not in the DC fandom. I’ve never been in the DC fandom. I’ve read one (1) DC comic. It was by Frank Miller. 

I never looked back. 

But damn if their writing isn’t so good that I’m reading through all their stuff despite having a massive backlog of both reading and work to do, sprinkling bookmarks, kudos, and comments wherever I go. 

I don’t even really like Batman. 

“My fellow Americans, I think we all know where this is going so let’s just skip it to the end. ”
*Mushroom cloud in the distance *
IDK why but the first thumb this reminded me of was Attack on Titan and the US elections this year.

My reaction to the Not Today MV Teaser

I WAS NOT EXPECTING A SECOND MV TEASER AT ALL, WE GOT 2 MV FAMMM we’re a really spoiled fandom guys… we must be thankful to bts for their hardwork and caring for Army.

The funny thing is that I was actually watching that “BTS Baepsae hip thrust 10 min. loop” vid when the vlive notif. popped up lol 

Also, that Puma ad thing is from this post that i found hilarious so i had to add it here, so creds to that acc

btw, ARE YOU READY FOR THE COMEBACK TOMORROW? bc I’M NOT :’-D

Spring Day / Not Today

“And when we say fanart, we mean, that includes (…) we have wonderful writers, that write a lot of really awesome fanfiction, side-stories within the world they create on their own.”

“It’s all so good?! It’s like, all so good!”

(x)

don’t mind me, i’m just very emotional over matt and marisha acknowledging fanfic as an art form and speaking positively about an aspect of fandom that’s so often overlooked and mocked… bless these wonderful people tbh.

Do you all realize?

The author of My Immortal is out there somewhere. What do think she does?

Is she continuing to write? Is she writing right now? What fandoms does she wrote about these days? Where does she buy eggs? Are her and Raven still friends? Did Raven ever return her sweater? Did she ever return Ravens poster? Is she still goth? Does she still hate preps? Does she still hate Hilary Duff? What fan fictions does she read? Is she proud of how popular her story is? Is she ashamed? Does she still watch Harry Potter movies? Does she still like MCR, Good Charlotte, and all those other bands? What’s her biology grade? Her GPA? Her attendance record? Does she have friends who don’t know about the story? How can she live knowing she’s made something so big and yet no one knows? What’s her favorite bell pepper? What position in bed does she sleep in every night? How did she react to MCR breaking up? Coke or Pepsi? Red or blue? What flavor of pudding would she eat for the rest of life is she had no choice? What if she’s reading this right now? Will she answer any of these? Will she hide her face? Will I lose a follower because I accidentally blew her cover? What is her zodiac sign?

All of these are real questions people!

I feel like I really need to stress that just from like a storytelling perspective the plot twist of episode 10 was so pure and hilarious and well done. Like, it revealed so much about the characters and was super entertaining and totally unexpected but wasn’t obnoxious in the slightest?? Honestly I hope this makes as many waves outside of the YOI fandom as it has within because really this, this should be a plot twist we cite in the future as a truly innovative and impressive narrative element, like please let this be the end of all this grimdark violence for shock value bullshit and let writers everywhere wake up and realize that you can be creative and uplifting but still throw your audience for the plot twist of the decade

SARCASTIC HUNK IS SARCASTIC

Listen y'all. The Voltron fandom needs to get something straight ( just this once- please. )
Hunk is indeed a very sweet, anxiety-ridden, foodie.
But have y'all seen the show? Hunk is incredibly sarcastic. It’s dry so maybe that’s why you guys didn’t notice. But I just think its time the fandom acknowledged this important character trait.

Hunk is hilarious and I will personally hunt down any nay sayer who disagrees.
