Bit of a long one because I kept forgetting to post over the Christmas holidaysYuri/Victor (Yuri on Ice)Unworthy
by heartsdesire4565 Times Victor Overheard People Saying Yuuri Wasn't Good Enough For Him and 1 Time Someone Told Him Yuuri Was Too Good For Him
This is just adorableFive Times Viktor and Yuuri Were Jealous of Makkachin (and the one time they weren't)
by braveten"Viktor will do whatever is necessary in order to never see Yuuri cry again. He’d walk miles across broken glass. He’d relinquish all of his gold medals to JJ Leroy. He’d let Phichit hack his Instagram account."
Viktor and Yuuri are jealous of Makkachin on multiple occasions, but the adorable brown poodle might be the only way to get them to realize their love for one another.
These silly boys and their adorablenessBreathe Easy
by tolstoyevskiYuuri breaks down the night before his Free Skate at the Grand Prix Final, and Viktor is there to comfort him. What Yuuri doesn't realize is that Viktor also understands him.
So many feelingsPractice is Cancelled
by arispriteVictor gets a cold, and the Katsuki family is there for him.
Utterly unrepentant sickfic and I love itQuestion and Answer
by chellethewriterViktor is growing old, and his competitors seem to be growing younger and younger. Thus, with every passing year, Viktor finds fewer familiar faces at his Grand Prix banquets, and he wonders whether his attendance has become pointless. What he doesn’t realize, however, is that one unfamiliar, alcohol-reddened face can make the whole night more than worthwhile.
(A canon-compliant retelling of the banquet in which Viktor falls head-over-heels for a certain drunk, Japanese figure skater, and Yuri Plisetsky is both displeased and incredulous).
Oh, god, this is so beautifulGlass Heart
by ProcrastinatingPalindromeFive times Victor Nikiforov cried (and one time he cried in Yuuri's arms.)
Gah, this is so sweet!Stay By My Side
by paranoid_fridge“Finally!” somebody shouts and Yuuri jumps. Russian Yuri stomps toward him, expression dark. “He's on his third round of that.” Yuri jerks a thumb to the rink behind his back. “Make him stop before he hurts himself.”
Aka Yuuri says "let's end this", Viktor turns to melodramatic skating, they get to cry and kiss (in that order) and all is well in the end.
Gosh I love these idiot boys so muchKent/Tater (Check Please)Careful the Tale You Tell
by tiptoe39Kent has been telling himself a story, ever since the Q. It's the epic story of Parse and Zimms, and he's in love with it.
But sometimes life gets in the way of the stories we tell ourselves.
OH GOD THIS GAVE ME SO MANY FEELINGSKick on the Starter
by fabricantIn which Kent Parson plays hockey, learns that grieving isn't a cut and dried process and comes out on Twitter, not necessarily in that order.
This ALSO gave me so many feelings!New Things
by alianne82Kent has no idea how he even ended up at this stupid Christmas party. It’s not like he’s a big fan of the holidays in the first place, and seriously, this is all just a little much.
Lovely bit of Christmas fluffWhen The Moon Hits Your Eye
by freefallWhen Kent adopts a stray dog the worst thing that he was expecting was fleas or difficulties house-training. He never thought he would have to deal with pack disputes between Russian werewolves.
Kent would like it to be known that he is a cat person and he never signed up for any of this shit.
I haven’t read a lot of Check Please AUs but this one was wonderful!Sid/Geno (Hockey RPF)Say My Name
by cloudcoverThe guy’s face was ruddy with cold and his black hair, when he pulled the knit hat from his head, was damp and curling at the ends. He stood blinking in confusion at the Cyrillic menu above the counter, twisting his hands together to warm them.
The picture he made was so completely pathetic (and familiar, if Zhenya was honest about it), that Zhenya decided to step in. How many times had he himself stared up at the incomprehensible jumble of an English menu, hoping someone would take pity on him?
Gah, this is so adorable!Phil/Carl (Hockey RPF)A Charmed Life
by cloudtraderThere was something... not quite right, though. He knew the bitter tang of the Leafs magic was slowly fading from his aura, like trails of oily residue being washed away as more Toronto fans put him out of their thoughts and more Pittsburgh fans learned about him, but there was something... something left over. He still had bits of Boston seasoned into him, of course, but the remnants of Toronto felt like a permanent frog in the back of his throat, like saliva burning under his tongue. It was kinda weird, but he figured it was just a Canadian hockey magic thing.
“It's not a Canadian hockey magic thing, Phil!” Sid said exasperatedly.
I love the worldbuilding in this one. Such a fascinating idea.
