Under ghostyouknow27's influence, I have recently made a series of terrible decisions involving staying up until midnight on school nights reading hockey RPF. HOCKEY RPF. Which is full of TROPES, which we all know are like candy.

I have two choices of pairings: the two fratboy dudebros who can't feelings, or the huge adorable sweetheart Russian with broken English and the super driven team captain who REALLY can't feelings. Possibly from these descriptions you can guess which is my favorite. Fortunately and completely inexplicably, this is the less popular pairing, so hopefully I will run out of decent fic within a week or so.

It is all Ghost's fault.

Heeeeeeeeee. I don't read or write hockey RPF, but I have written Angel and Spike watching hockey and possibly observing parallels between themselves and the two players hotdogging it on the ice who can't feelings.

And Ghost provides! Personally, I especially liked the bondmates one and the green card marriage one.

Divided by a common language, my instant picture is basically a rugby player (big, rippling, hairy) in a tennis skirt (short, flippy). Hereabouts, hockey is on grass, and mostly for girls...

Nonetheless, I'm willing to read RPF about people I don't know, which I wouldn't do with FPF. To AO3!

HAH. Well, the burly part is right, but there is much less crossdressing than your image suggests. Ghost linked to a bunch of stuff below with my preferred pairing, if you want recs. I especially liked the bondmates one and the green card marriage one.

Started the green card one after 10pm last night. Despite your experience.

Oh god, so tired. But it's marvellous.

I really don't know whether to sympathize or laugh at you.

You can laugh. It's not like I wasn't warned, or like I couldn't see the word count when I started.

Although, yesterday before this, I went to work in non-matching boots (different colours tho same style, which I think is some mitigation), and took 90 minutes to notice. Today, something even more idiotic, which I'm not even going to share. So I'm not in a perfect place for making good decisions. And decreasingly so.

Might read that bondmates fic now. Ahahahah

Oh no. It sounds like you needs hugs as well as fanfic. *hugs* Also sleep and tea.

(The bondmates fic made me cry a lot.)

The Russian isn't Ovechkin, is it? That would amuse me, as he's a pretty big deal where I am.

Hah, no, but Ovechkin does show up as a supporting character sometimes!

I have decided that Ovechkin is the Chad Michael Murray in stories where Kaner isn't the Chad Michael Murray.

Kind of, except Ovechkin seems to be a little more, mm, antagonistic?

Sometimes? It seems like they hate him, but then he's not actually a terrible person/is Geno's friend? At least in some stories. The Flyers are the real enemy.

(Side note: I crack up when stories wax poetic about Pittsburgh, PA. Just... no.)

Hahaha! Watching you fall into fandoms you never meant to get into is adorable!

/o\

I don't plan to, like, DO anything in this fandom. That would probably mean learning about hockey, and also I suspect in my heart of hearts that the way my pet Russian and his broken English is written is a bit not-good. But! Fic to read!

I have a few fandoms like that, where I know I'll never write things but still love to read. They're the most relaxing kind!

Hey! It's not like I meant to fall into Hockey RPF any more than you did! It was that bondmates fic that caught us both.

Also, for other people here:

The soulmates fic that got me and snick to fall in love with Geno Malkin and Geno Malkin/Sidney Crosby: http://archiveofourown.org/works/730574

Geno teaches Sidney how to be good at sex, without telling him the part where he's been in love with Sidney forever: http://archiveofourown.org/works/200089
Sidney figures out that he's gay and has all the gay sex because he can't have the person he really wants, not realizing that Geno's pining right back at him: http://archiveofourown.org/works/532384
Sidney hires Geno as a sex surrogate: http://archiveofourown.org/works/995805

HAH, you save me from having to make any recs lists. :D And now I have read at least half of those. (The mail order bride one is silly. It is very, very silly. I'm not sure it knows it.)
