Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

OK, this I can do. One of the things I always liked to do before I became a creator was to shove things I liked into people's faces, and somehow people liked it as opposed to telling me to go away.

This will be mostly fic and vids, for various fandoms I'm currently into.

Yuri On Ice
(Victor/Yuri unless indicated, spoilers for entire series)

Morning Breaks in Saint Petersburg by neomeruru (nsfw)
Yuuri moves in with Victor in Russia and makes himself at home, with some help. 
This is sweet and lovely, and then lovely and hot.

taking over this town
by kevystel
Yuuri lets himself believe. 
This is beautifully, achingly perfect.

Death of a bachelor (vid) by vityanikiforova

This song is absolutely perfect for both of them.

back for more, back for more
by chii (nsfw)
The one where Victor helps Yuuri into his skates and is stepped on, just a little bit. 

That should probably be enough for you to figure out if you want to read it or not. 

flung out of space
 by rhapsodies (Mila Babacheva/Sara Crispino)
Sara Crispino has purple eyes and a heart-shaped smile, and Mila is screwed right from the start. 
I know we don't know much about these ladies, but I'm still delighted by the relationship that's been built in this fic. I also love this Victor.


to balance the weight we've swallowed by thissugarcane (f!Exile/Atton)
Atton recovers beautifully, even throws her a wicked grin. "The pinnacle of our working relationship, Surik," he counters. Just for a moment, he sways into a fighting stance, before casually slouching against the turret pedestal. Meetra watches his hands, his feet, as he flows from fighting form to slouch, and despite herself, is drawn in. 
I like the way this unfurls, the way they circle around each other until they meet.

here we are safe, here in this quiet by persiflet (Bao-Dur & f!Exile)
He knows people assume this problem of his started after Malachor, but to be honest it was always there. Malachor just made everything more difficult. 
This is perfect and melancholy, and the Bao-Dur voice is great.

Selfish by Kian (f!Exile/Atton, Carth)
The Exile says goodbye to the wrong man. 
The Exile has a conversation. Oh, this aches.

Star Wars (various)

I seem to have a difficult time finding good Star Wars vids, so I'm going to just huck a bunch of these in here.

I Ran by HoneyMonsterNoNo (Kylo Ren, Rey)
Moody, nicely opposes the two characters.

Sum of our Parts by janicerands (Finn/Rey)
rey & finn figure out the hero business. and also fall in space love.

Flares by skywalkcrs (Luke)
Beautiful and made me very emoshe.

Wait For It by pixiedanes (Leia)
Leia keeps losing, keeps going.

There are a great many force4ham mashups, but this one was deeply, deeply affecting. 

There Is a Light That Never Goes Out by ohvienna (Han/Leia)
“I really wanted something different for us.” She thought of her daydreams of the two of them flying across the galaxy together, carefree at last. - Star Wars: Bloodline

This is so sad and it fucked me up so much, especially after Carrie Fisher died.

Can't Hold Us by R1GHTEOUS (Clone Wars, clone soldiers)
Maybe one day I will stop having feelings about the clones. Today is not that day.

Dragon Age

Some of the most unusual and beautiful fanworks I've ever seen are made by [tumblr.com profile] unklarity, who makes character-themed boxes. I run a Merrill themed blog on Tumblr, and she made a full-sized and a mini one for her. They're filled with all sorts of wonderfully witchy things like candles, stones, and other things representative of the characters. Please check her tag for more of these lovely things.
