Summary: His second visit to an ophthalmologist occurs five months later.

Just like during his first consultation, he doesn’t understand any of the medical jargon coming from the doctor’s mouth. Only now, after he’s done explaining everything in complicated, convulsed words, the man turns to Yuri with a smile on his face and explains everything once more, this time using terms Yuri can understand.

Yuri listens. He bites down on his bottom lip and he does not cry.

Why you should read this: This was thoroughly lovely. There's no other word for it. ♥ it's less about the romance (which was also lovely ♥) and more about Yuri and his skating career, his illness, his relationships with other people, otabek in his life, etc. I'm reminded of a post I saw on tumblr a while ago, a screencap of a smiling Yuri with a tumblr text post pasted on top: "contrary to popular belief I am soft and have feelings" or something along those lines. I feel like it'd sum up this fic perfectly. Very warmly recommended. ♥

Summary: Otabek's hoodie is made of magic, smells like the moon, and Yuri is not giving it back. AU where everything's the same except for Otabek's surprise supernatural tendencies.

Why you should read this: look at that, another mousapelli fic :D listen, once upon a time a very long time ago mousapelli wrote Remus/Sirius fics, of which one is an all time favourite (band!AU! I mean come on), so when I saw this name in my yurio/otabek searches, I may have shrieked. A little. A lot. And then I promptly read everything and subscribed, and then this little gem dropped into my mailbox yesterday. IT IS VERY CUTE AND YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY READ IT. Magic hoodie! Otabek is a fairy prince! Well, knight of winter, but what the hell is the difference :D short and uplifting and adorable. Bonus points for shapeshifting magics :D
