Yuri/Victor (Yuri on Ice)
Praise Please
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.

This is so sweet and perfectly in character

Clark/Lex (Smallville)
Play Forgiveness
The call comes in when Clark is drunk on sleep and his face is buried deep in the pillow. "The President requires your assistance."
I don’t know why but I felt an urge to read Smallville fic this week and I found this wonderful one that I hadn’t read back when I was active in the fandom

Male Hawke/Fenris
In for the Kill
Hawke and Varric run a small yet accomplished criminal empire, specialising in theft, espionage, and assassinations. When a big new job comes in, Hawke goes to seek some outside help from Fenris, an infamous (and expensive) assassin who just happens to be in Kirkwall. (AU with canon setting but different career choices)
This is so much fun. A bit like a Leverage AU and I loved it

I'm in the middle of replaying Dragon Age 2 and it got me in the mood to read some fic :D

M!Hawke/Fenris (Dragon Age)
Ace in the Hole by etamiss
Hawke spends most of his time getting rich and getting drunk (not necessarily in that order) while playing cards in taverns. While away from Kirkwall, he ends up playing against an overly confident Danarius who bets his slave, Fenris, as the main prize. (AU with canon setting)
I loved this one, especially the way Hawke was written

Fenris/Anders (Dragon Age)
From These Emerald Waters Doth Life Begin Anew by andrastesknickerweasle
As the Chantry burns, Fenris makes a mistake that will lead he and Anders into the Inquisition’s path, and a promise that will change their lives forever.
This was absolutely amazing! Can’t believe I never read it before

MEMENTO MORI by spicyshimmy
On one of his earlier escape attempts from the Circle, Anders makes it as far as Tevinter, but it's not the liberation he'd hoped for. Many years later, as part of Danarius's retinue, he meets up with the gang in Kirkwall during Act 3--but as a very different man. Hawke often enjoyed exploration after a skirmish, to cool his blood by picking through a vanquished foe’s meaningless effects. There were times when Fenris permitted it as a personal indulgence, and times when, for whatever reason, he did not.
Really interesting canon-divergence story

Paper and Cotton by calligraphypenn
Over the centuries, there developed in the Circle of Magi a tradition of showing affection, regard and intent through the giving of small, practical trinkets. It became a way to dodge any suspicion from the Circle authorities--who could object to the gift of some paper, or a single coin?

In which Fenris is a practical elf, and accidentally tells Anders through tokens that he likes him VERY MUCH. But (at first) Fenris has no idea, and Anders is daily more baffled and suspicious.

OMG this is just adorable!

Dorian/Cullen (Dragon Age)
The Inescapable Risk of Intimacy by esstiel
Were Dorian back home, they would fuck a few times to get whatever it is building between them out of their systems then go back to their regularly scheduled lives. They would most likely never speak again unless required to by a formal setting, and both parties would be expected to keep their deviant activities a secret.

But they aren’t in Tevinter, and what’s building between them isn’t sexual desire, not really.

Oh, this is a lovely slow burn fic

Sid/Geno (Hockey RPF)
A Perpendicular Expression of a Horizontal Desire by coricomile
"It's so good to meet you," Sharna says, her voice tinged with a soft Australian accent. She hasn't taken her hand off Geno's arm.

"Nice to meet you, too," Geno says, laughing when Sharna slips on the ice. They do a few circuits around the rink, one of the Pens crew following them since apparently Dancing With the Stars doesn't have a person on the film crew that knows how to skate.

Sid heads to the locker room. As long as it doesn't screw with their game, he doesn't care.

This is just adorable!

Phil/Carl (Hockey RPF)
Something Good Can Work by utsu
And if he looks back to Carl a few times, he tells himself it’s because his hands are soft enough to draw the attention regardless of his own overwhelming confusion with the man.

And if he thinks about those soft hands in a different way, without ice or sticks or skates, and how they might feel in his hands, well.

Phil is still working on being honest with himself.

I can't believe I missed this when I was going through the Phil/Carl tag a while back. It's so sweet omg.

Lin-Manuel Miranda/Jonathan Groff (Hamilton RPF)
That Zig-Zag Hit Me Like A Dart by audenrain
"They sit like that all the time, now, Lin’s elbow twitching into his side when he jerks the controller and Jon pretending he’s not completely aware of every inch of their thighs pressed together. It’s fine. It's totally fine. Jon’s had crushes before."

[or: in which Jon is too oblivious to realize that they're already dating.]

Yes, I think we’ve already established I’m going to the special hell but this is so sweet!

Phil Kessel/Carl Hagelin (Hockey RPF)
Where I Want To Go by jamesbonds

The rest of his shield comes crashing down and Carl feels like a wave is breaking over him, slamming him into the rocks. He feels breathless and overwhelmed, like some other force out of his control is propelling him, like he’s not sure which direction is which.

“OH.” says a voice in the back of his head in response. Carl can’t stop staring at Phil, eyes wide and jaw hanging open a bit."

Carl gets traded once, twice, waits for a third time that doesn’t come. Instead he finds something else entirely.


Sidney Crosby/Alexander Ovechkin (Hockey RPF)

Sid/Geno (Hockey RPF)
But my soul is still full of desires by thecollectivediva
No one blinks twice when Sidney mentions he’s going to see two hockey games while he’s in Russia. It’s Sid, and everyone knows that there’s only one thing he loves more than owning a Tim Hortons in his hometown and that’s Russian ice hockey.

Or, the one where Sid owns a Timmies, Evgeni is a metal worker, and they meet at a hockey game in Moscow.

Aww! This is so sweet and sad and lovely!

Worse Than A Boy Who Hates You by omelet
The first time Sidney Crosby meets Evgeni Malkin, the crowd is on their feet and roaring and he’s flat on his ass on the ice, staring up at Malkin’s face haloed by the glaring stadium lights.
GAH! This is so wonderful!

I Carrot About You by eiirene, sethjonesy (mymnemosyne), withoutpants

Kenny's 2 Months of Cooking Dangerously by coffeestars
Kent has a mid-life crisis at 27 and starts cooking his way to enlightenment with his teammate, like that woman from the food movie about Julia Child. Or something like that.

Mashkov also keeps tweeting at him, and he doesn't know why.

Argh this is the cutest omg

In the story of Kent’s life, Jack is the one who got away.

(Or: Kent collects little pieces of Jack, over the years.)

(Or: Kent’s always had a bad habit of pushing hard on his bruises the next day, just to feel how something can leave a ache long after it’s done hurting you. Maybe that’s why he’s at this wedding.)

“You tell me what you did when you get here.”
“What? I didn’t—”
“3 AM here and you almost lose your point streak in game last night, Parse. You leave Vegas, go to not-Boston, call me at 3 AM. So you come to Providence, you tell me what happened.”
Kent took several deep breaths, but said nothing.

I never expected to have so many Kent Parson feels

Dot Your T's and Cross Your I's by coffeestars
Zimmermann's mark, the first thought his soulmate will have about him, is on his stomach. It is not the first thing Kent thinks when he meets Zimms.

Kent's own markings are illegible. His soulmate must not think much of him, but it's okay, because Kent doesn't think much of himself, either, as he bandages up his forearm and hides.

EEEE! Soundbond fics are so great :D

He could turn around and leave right now, and it would be like he’d never come at all. Turn around, walk across the dappled yard and back down the driveway, get back in his rental car and drive away.

Living Like We're Renegades by merryofsoul
Sid's crew is in the business of shipping — mainly. Sometimes, when the shipments from Bettman Corps are slow, they pick up extra shipments, or find things that are misplaced and return them to their rightful owners.

Sid doesn't like it when he hears the word bounty hunter or vigilante thrown around, because as far as the authorities know, Sid's crew has done nothing wrong. But it's common knowledge that if something needs taking care of, the crew of the Pittsburgh can get the job done.

Really fun space AU

Zhenya had two.

“You look like me, too, if you don’t have all that makeup,” Zhenya told her crankily.

"Hey," Jamie says, pounding on the door. "Hey, open up!"

The dogs shut up.

"Hi, shit, sorry," says the stupidly fucking gorgeous man who opens the door in a tank top and boxers. "Shit, were the dogs loud? They get really excited when I come home."

"It’s three in the morning," Jamie says. On cue, a dog pokes its head around the corner to the entryway and bounces over to the — to this guy. It’s followed by another, browner dog, and Jamie has a moment of surrealist sleep-deprived horror where he imagines an infinite string of dogs forever bounding gleefully towards —

"I work two jobs. I’m Tyler," Tyler says, extending his hand. "Do you want to come in?"

Well, he’s not doing anything illegal, Jamie thinks, shaking it, because no criminal in the history of crime has ever willingly invited a cop into their house, and there is no one in the city of Dallas who hasn’t pegged Jamie as a cop within six seconds of meeting him.

Elastic Heart by cathedralhearts
“It’s so early, G,” Sidney mumbles as he pulls himself upright as takes the coffee and the bagel. Geno laughs and goes back into the kitchen, bringing the rest into the bedroom and settling on the covers, sipping his tea and unwrapping his own food.

“Is 8.30, Sid, time for wake. Lots to do today, Mr. Prime Minister.”

I do love domestic fluff

Stars Apart by java_genie
It’s easy for Geno to imagine how things could better, out in the black. He’s read all the comic books and seen all the movies about the people who leave the core behind and find a second life, a better life, as pioneers and outlaws on the frontier of space. It means opportunity—the chance to scrub yourself clean of all the bad names and mean labels the core gives people born to parents not rich enough, smart enough or brave enough.

But Sid, he was born with all the right labels—and Geno can’t think of a single thing Sid could find out among the stars that he couldn’t have here at home.

I wasn't sure a hockey Firefly AU would work but it does and this is all kinds of fun

March into the Sun by o_contrary
In the flurry and frenzy of packing and checking with his team once more before he leaves, he sort of-

He’s just hoping they’ll have some sort of chance to catch up in Prague, when Geno will have less of a limp, will be able to walk like someone younger than 90, and it won’t turn into a fight that Sidney isn’t quite prepared to have.

Membership to the Triple Gold Club isn't all Sidney leaves Prague with.

Little Steps (Getting There; Being There) by onceuponamoon
“Flower?” Geno asks, inclining his head in the snoring goalie’s direction.

“Yeah, Flower’s okay,” Sid confirms. He wants to tell Geno that he’s okay, too, but that’s – another limb to carefully navigate. “Most of the time. Goalies need lots of attention.”

“Yes, give Flower lots of love. Not like Talbo.” Geno grins. “He not need any, okay? Gets plenty from mirror.”

Sid laughs, loud in the quiet of the airport lobby. “Yeah,” he says, “Okay.”

The Say Love Heals All Wounds by deastar
“Geno? Are you okay? Physically,” Sid asks, which is good, because Zhenya doesn’t think he can put into words how he’s feeling emotionally. He imagines saying, The person I’ve loved for ten years finally took me to bed last night, but it turns out he didn’t want to, and now I can read his mind. No, thank you.

“Feel fine,” Zhenya answers. “Even head feel fine.” And suddenly he realizes how fucking odd that is: he was concussed, and the room is brightly lit – he should be hiding under a blanket right now. He narrows his eyes and asks, “Sid, why head feel fine? What happen to concussion?”

Sid takes a halting step closer to the bed and says, “Our bond, it’s—it’s a healing bond.”

“Holy mother of God,” Zhenya breathes. So. They’re definitely not breaking the bond, then.

Sidney grows up hearing about the types of soulbonds, and every time someone gets gushy about them Sid just rolls his eyes and goes back to whatever it was that he was doing.
Does he want a bond? Yeah, of course, but - after hockey; only after hockey. Some of the guys are already bonded, and that’s awesome for them. Sid likes all of their bondmates, they’re all awesome. But for Sid, it’d just be something else to distract him from the game.

Life in a sleepy small town is a welcome change of pace for Sidney. Eager to leave his old city life behind, he's ready to settle into a quiet routine where the stress of his job peaks at planning a tour of the fire station for the local elementary school. He isn't looking for romantic entanglements, or anything else that might pull his focus away from his work. When he finds an abandoned, injured puppy by the side of a country road, though, Sidney can't do less than anything in his power to make sure it gets the care it needs.

He hadn't been counting on Dr. Evgeni Malkin. With his careful hands and warm smile, it's not long before Geno has the puppy patched up and happy again. And while Sidney never intends to foster the puppy himself, if it means occasional house calls from the local veterinarian, he can't quite bring himself to regret it.

Will Sidney be able to work past the memory of a previous loss and find a way to open his life to someone else again? Or will Geno have to work like a dog to bring this beauty's stubborn heart to heel?

Hands, Head, Heart by vlieger
Geno is a vet. Sid is a little bit magic.
I don’t know why but I have a real weakness for magic fics in this fandom

The Hockey Gods (Must Be Crazy) by solarcat
In which Sidney Crosby goes for a walk one day, and somehow most of the NHL ends up worshipping a defaced Winnipegian brick. It's all Jonny Toews' fault.
HAHA! OMG this is ridiculous and hilarious

Careful Cooking by java_genie
Their supply guy has totally fucked them. Sid doesn’t know if it was just an off day at the warehouse, or if Ovie insulted the guy’s mother again, but whatever the cause, there’s a metric fuckton of peas in the walk in.

“I’m never taking a night off ever again,” Sid says ominously.

OR: Sid raises his sister, manages the kitchen in Mario's restaurant and tries not to fall in love with Geno. AU of the German film Mostly Martha

Argh this is so sweet!

Stranger in This Lonely Town by iBear
He slowly pulls the Metallurg jersey over his head, the one that reads Кросби 87, and the more things change, the more things stay the same.
Another utterly adorable one!

Sam/Bucky (MCU)
Reasons Sam Won't Move His Seat For Bucky by neversaydie
The time he stole his steering wheel (right out of his fucking hands while he was very much driving and trying to avoid being killed Steve it's not funny in hindsight).

The time he ripped off Sam's wing and kicked him off a helicarrier.

The time he picked Sam up by his face and threw him across the room.

Sam has a long list of reasons Bucky isn't getting any favours from him any time soon.

[in which I don't know how this turned into a Ten Things I Hate About You thing but here we are.]

This is the first post-Civil War fic I’ve read and it’s not the pairing I expected to read. It’s so wonderful though

Sid/Geno (Hockey RPF)
Never Hard to Find by missmollyetc
Wherein Sidney Crosby gets laid, and Russian diplomacy saves the day.
God, everyone is so ridiculous and I love it!

Welcome Home by oflights
On his seventh birthday, Sidney meets 23-year-old time traveler Geno, who tells him that they will play hockey together. And then they do. Loosely based on The Time Traveler's Wife.
This is so wonderful! I loved it!

Thou and You by pentapus & twentysomething
There's no way to tell just by looking at someone whether or not they are a magician. Some are more obvious than others, but Evgeni has been introduced to thousands of people since coming to London and he has never been absolutely certain before.

But when Lady Everly says, "Oh, Your Highness, this is Mr. Crosby," Evgeni knows the man in front of him is a magician.

It took me a while to get into this one but once I did I loved it!

Rest My Secrets by ladyjaneally
Geno’s been running away for years, from the scandal in Magnitogorsk, from any chance of getting his heart broken again. He’s working as a bouncer in Pittsburgh when he meets Sidney Crosby—hockey phenom, single dad, looking for someone to handle personal security for his little girl.
I’m kind of getting into the AUs now even though this is only semi-AU

Birds of a Feather by uraneia
Sid refuses to be jealous of something that's two and a half feet high and can't play hockey.

OR: The Pittsburgh Zoo named some penguins after the Penguins, and no one will let Sid forget the one named after him has its shit together, because all his friends are assholes. Also there's pining.

OMG so adorable!

Let's Stay Together by uraneia
Sid goes to bed in LA on June 12 and wakes up June 13 in Pittsburgh. That would be weird enough in itself, but the thing is, he doesn't wake up alone.

(Due to accidental Cup wish reasons, Sid and Geno wake up married... with no knowledge that they ever even dated.)

Before I ever started reading hockey I was told about magical Stanley Cup fics. I finally got to one. YAY!

Canadian Coping Mechanisms (or It Takes a Village) by ibear
Sid gets de-aged. The Russian clique helps? interferes in? Geno's attempts to care for him.
Aww! This is so cute!

Love on the Rink by agirlnamedfia
Honestly, the first one is an accident.

Or, how Sidney Crosby finds love through message boards, heaving bosoms, boat rides and a lot of grand gestures.


Knit One Purl Two by bropunzeling
Of all the things Sid expects to see Geno doing when he walks into his house, it certainly isn’t sitting on his couch knitting.

(Or; the one where Geno is a secret stress knitter.)


Stop, Drop, and Roll by lexie
“Most of the runs we go out on are false alarms or medical calls,” Sidney says. It's his standard response to anyone asking about the danger, and it's true — they get a lot of broken fire alarms, heart attacks, and overdoses. In the last five years, Sidney has delivered two babies and been part of the crew that, legendarily within the Toronto Fire Services, freed a guy's dick from a jacuzzi tube. “People call 911 for a lot of weird stuff.”

"You not fire captain too?" says Geno. "What, too young?" He looks enormously smug, which means he's chirping.

Sidney enjoys it more than he probably should.

Or: the one where (almost) everyone is a hockey-playing firefighter.

Aww! I loved this!

Sid/Geno (Hockey RPF)
The Limits of the World by turningterrific
“So, umm,” Sid says into his phone, suddenly nervous.

“Sid?” Geno’s voice registers surprise.

“Yeah, umm.” Why is this difficult? “I’m here?”

Geno laughs. “Back in Pittsburgh?”

“No.” Sid clears his throat. “I’m-- I’m in the Moscow airport.”


Sid decides to spend his summer in Russia.

I love how many adorable domestic fics with cuddling this fandom has.

Pass It On by thefourthvine
Ninety percent of everyone's problems could be solved by a robot that just texted NO to hockey players on a regular basis. Unfortunately, Sidney didn't have a robot.
This is cute and hilarious. Sidney Crosby hockey!dad

The Work of Wings by thefourthvine
Sidney Crosby gets hit on the head and wakes up with extra memories.
Really interesting idea and really well done. I loved it.

Sing Each Song Twice by uraneia
After he retires, Sid retreats to the Canadian wilderness and no one in the public hears from him for two years. But it's not like anyone forgets about him. Especially not Geno, who still keeps in touch by phone and e-mail, though he longs for more.

Geno is facing the prospect of life without the NHL when Sid's autobiography comes out. Suddenly everyone wants a comment. Geno didn't even know Sid was writing an autobiography.

But he knows now, and he knows--there’s no way to read Sid’s book except as a love letter to Geno, and even if he only meant it as a hockey love letter, it still is. Only Sid won't answer his calls.

Geno resolves to ask him about it in person. One problem: he has to find him first.


The World Was Built For Two by chibirhm
The first time Sid meets Geno, he isn’t Geno, he’s Evgeni Malkin, and he’s the enemy. Sid is so pumped up for the game he barely notices him. He doesn’t notice anything except hockey, and Malkin’s good, but that’s all he is.

He feels a tinge of sadness when Canada wins, but he guesses he just feels bad. Ovechkin’s not the only one crying, and Sid isn’t so unfeeling he doesn’t have some sympathy for how it must suck to lose. He also gets a headache when he flies back home, but he’s just really overtired is all.

He doesn’t think anything of it.

Another lovely soulbond fic

See This Through by impertinence
Sidney's drunk when he orders a Russian bride. He doesn't expect anyone to show up - and he definitely doesn't expect that person to be an awkward-looking guy who barely speaks English.
Wasn’t sure about this at first but it was actually adorable. I shouldn’t be surprised really. Most of the fics in this fandom are adorable.

Highway Unicorn by pentapus and thefourthvine
He saw the horn poking out from the pony's head, golden and straight and somehow delicate-looking despite the empty tuna can hanging off of it. The unicorn horn. "The fuck," Sidney said out loud, his eye skipping from the horn over the greyish-white body to the graceful gold-toned hooves.
I should be surprised there is a hockey fic where Sid knows a unicorn and yet I am not

My Siberia: A Russian Knitting Circle Story by impertinence
The last thing you want to do with the guy you've been hung up on for ages is teach him how to be decent at sex. So of course, that's exactly what Geno does. Featuring interfering Russians, thorough devirginization, and equal parts alcohol imbibing and hockey playing.
Who wouldn’t love a fic about a bunch of matchmaking, protective, Russians :D

All Great and Precious Things by hapakitsune
He opens the door, expecting to see Taylor or Matty or even his mom. Instead, he finds Geno.

"Hi," Geno says. "Can I come in?"

This is about as close to an angsty fic as I’ve read and it’s still adorable. I love this fandom

Magic in the Midnight Sun by hapakitsune
There's a curse mark on the back of Sidney's neck.
I love that there are magical hockey fics

Semantic Shift by neros_violin
“He asked what some of the words meant, on the signs, what they yell. I told him. He’s a fan of Princess Sidney, especially.”
Well we all know Sid is a princess :D

This Cold Harbor Now Home by hapakitsune
The one person Geno wants to build a family with already has one.
Argh why are there so many adorable fics with babies in this fandom?
