The average NFL QB stands 6’3” and weighs about 225. The average quarterback career runs about 6 years, depending on who you believe, and allowing for the variance generated by guys like Blanda and Favre, and all the cup-of-coffee players littering the other side of the bell curve. All that makes it seem Alex is sitting pretty square in the middle of things, average in all senses of the word.

But Alex has always been exceptional.

Utterly gorgeous story of how Alex Smith found a home in Kansas City in 2013.

The Goth Detectives have opened their doors again (as well as their capes, some zippers that should not be open, doors that are not theirs, and a fateful box of hair dye) in order to solve a rather ghastly case but one that also involves bakeries and other people, places, and things they don't care much about.
Will it be too much for them to handle?! Are the Goth Detectives in over their heads so soon after returning to the gothlight?!
Most assuredly, but that's not going to stop them.

Wonderfully daft. Made me cackle like a loon throughout.

"Call Me Maybe" (Carly Rae Jepsen) by mresundance

This song is totally evil, so in that sense it's very appropriate. *g*

As Far As I Could Throw Him by anonymous
Written for the prompt "So, in an imaginary world where the ISU have decided to openly back equality in regards to sexuality, they decide to have a one-time-only competition with same sex pairs to raise money for charity." Basically, Evgeni Plushenko and Alexei Yagudin have to skate pairs. Because of reasons.

Okay, I have to warn you up front that this is another unfinished kink meme fill. Specifically, it is 25,000 words of UST, misunderstandings and pining, cruelly cut off just as they finally admit to feelings but before anything else, which is supremely frustrating. Also, it made me like Alexei Yagudin, which is not okay. (There's a Yagudin fan in the comments similarly complaining about being made to like Plushenko, hee. Actual Alexei Yagudin keeps being a dick though so it's easy to keep disliking him.) But I just love this fic so much.

Maybe Just Tonight by anonymous
Written for the prompt "Evgeni Plushenko/Alexei Yagudin/Aleksandr Abt" and set after the 1998 Europeans where they swept the podium.

Poor Sasha Abt, plagued by injuries and overshadowed by the rivalry between these two young whippersnappers. At least here he benefits sexually from their competitiveness.

Super Stans by [ profile] toward_the_left
Written for the prompt "I want fic where Johnny is the biggest Plushenko stan on the internet. Under a clever username, he constantly posts Plushy picspams on _skating, defends him against haters at fsu/ goldenskate/AJ/every other site that's not _skating, runs his own Plushy comm, fills all the Yagsplush prompts on the kinkmeme, so on and so forth. One day, Stephane finds out Johnny's secret and mercilessly teases him. Then Johnny finds out Stephane has a secret of his own... he's the biggest Lambiel stan on the internet. Cue them trolling each other online and irl. Lulzy, ridiculous trolling." Continued here

This is probably funnier if you've spent hours combing through all the troll prompts and drama on skatingkink in hopes of finding an elusive end to an unfinished fill, which is what I did, but still. Johnny fills Stéphane's prompt with furry smut!

Written for the prompt "So Plushenko, Joubert, Weir and Lambiel are on a tour together." (i.e., Kings on Ice) Featuring tender!Stéphane Lambiel seducing virginal!Brian Joubert, with a heavy side of toppy!Evgeni/bratty!Johnny.
This story is technically unfinished (or if the promised continuation was ever posted, I haven't found it yet), but it's so ridiculously hot anyway. Like, it's pure porn, so I'm sure everyone involved keeps fucking until they all have amazing orgasms, the end. And I will never know who this amazing writer is or be able to plead with them to write more.

I don't really do Evan Lysacek fic, even though that basically eliminates at least half of all figure skating RPF, because he holds approximately negative amounts of interest for me as a person and also I'm forever bitter about Vancouver, buuuuuuut I made an exception for this fic based on the draw of the summary and it was so worth it.

I don't know how it is that there is a relatively active French-speaking Norse mythology fandom on AO3 while the only thing getting posted in English is over- or mis-tagged Marvel comics or movie fic. I'm just glad that this fandom is occurring in a language that I can read, albeit with recourse to a dictionary (my porny vocabulary is coming on by leaps and bounds!), because if it was any other non-English language I'd be stuck with Google Translate. This is another story where actual Norse gods discover the Thor movie and smoking-hot sex ensues, although this one is Thor/Loki and not Odin/Loki, which is my Norse mythology OTP. But, like Loki, I can be…flexible.

It's the Firefly pilot, only with Iskryne-style psychic wolves.
