Anya final stand, S7

hockey recs #28

Do these even deserve the tag "proper recs post" when there are only two fics? Well, that's the pace at which I'm reading hockey these days, so here we are. There was going to be an MCU post this week, but it's going to be long, and I already missed the "Thursday" part of Thursday recs, so the MCU post waiting for next week.

Hip Mobility by [ profile] pinetreelady
Sid/Geno, 7k. Sid invites Geno up to Cole Harbour to train--apparently only to train, despite their previous tentative steps towards a relationship. I loved the feelings in this, the fact that they're both feeling uncertain about the status of their relationship and unsure how to proceed. I can get frustrated with miscommunication plots sometimes, but this communication struggle feels so organic and human.

Blue Flowers Blooming by [ profile] AetherSeer
Parayko + Blues gen, 1.5k. NHL players have flowers where their dicks used to be, and sometimes they flower. Sometimes that means a player gets knocked up, if he's not careful. This was recced to me as "weird but cute," and tbh that is one of my favorite combos, so this fic worked GREAT for me. I am fascinated by Colton's floral genitalia, and I love his miserable declaration that he is "blooming."
