nerakrose: drawing of balfour from havemercy (balfour)
[personal profile] nerakrose
i set up a sideblog on tumblr for yuri on ice things - i normally don't care when my usual tumblr starts slanting towards a new fandom - the stuff i reblog on there is an eclectic mix of memes, various book, movie and tv fandoms and the occasional personal post, so it's all par for the course.

but then i made the mistake of checking whether the url victorextranikiforov was free, and well. here i am! *throws up hands*

anyway, RECS. (these will also go up on the sideblog eventually. i'll stick them in the queue or something.)

Series: Part 1 of Yuri!!! in Space
Summary: "No, see, we've all been trained a certain way. The training system is traditional; it's centuries old. Nobody taught you. You ballist like it's got nothing to do with war at all." A sleepy, extraordinary smile crawls over Victor's face. "Nobody else does it like that. That's why we're going to win."

Summary: His Grace the Archduke Yuri Plisetsky wins the Ballistic Grand Tournament in his debut year, at the age of fifteen.

Things go downhill from there.

Why you should read these: OKAY, LISTEN. SCI-FI-ROYALTY-SPORTS-AU. the sequel is also ARRANGED MARRIAGE AU. i'm. literally a puddle on the floor. i broke my "do not read victor/yuri fics" rule because it just wasn't Right to only read the second fic in a series, and boy am i glad i did. these fics are so good i can't cope with the sheer perfection i mean, i'm just. .___. flailing. ANYWAY, if you're into slow burn and hilarity (yurio is gr8 and if you're not wheezing with laughter at christophe's emails i don't know what's wrong with you) and loveliness and also just, awesomeness all around - this is the Thing to read. i took my sweet time with these to really savour them and then instantly subscribed to the series because it's not marked complete SO THERE MIGHT BE MORE. so many moments of laughter and screaming into a pillow because of these goddamn dorks. be still my heart, lest you explode in my chest. ALSO, SPACE! god, i love sci-fi. i should really write more of it myself. it's awesome. ♥

Summary: The only thing keeping Yuri on his feet is pure spite and the promise of the 4AM Tsukiji Market trip that the first morning in Tokyo definitely necessitates.

Why you should read this: I will probably forever adore anything mousapelli writes in any of my fandoms, because this is just the perfect amount of cute and domestic and sweet anyone could wish for. no plot, just slice of life and yurio and otabek being in love. ♥

Summary: As it turns out, Yuri doesn't mind Yuuri moving to St. Petersburg nearly as much as he thought that he would, but that doesn't mean it's not an adjustment for both of them.

Why you should read this: yuri and yurio friendship fic! love it. yurio teaching yuri how to cook russian dishes! ♥ ok this isn't just cute, i really like the insight in both yurio and yuri here, and how they respond to getting to know each other better. it's really great, and put me in a really good mood when i'd finished reading it.
