The world is poorly designed. But copying nature helps. - YouTube
"Japan’s Shinkansen doesn’t look like your typical train. With its long and pointed nose, it can reach top speeds up to 150–200 miles per hour.

It didn’t always look like this. Earlier models were rounder and louder, often suffering from the phenomenon of "tunnel boom," where deafening compressed air would rush out of a tunnel after a train rushed in. But a moment of inspiration from engineer and birdwatcher Eiji Nakatsu led the system to be redesigned based on the aerodynamics of three species of birds.

Nakatsu’s case is a fascinating example of biomimicry, the design movement pioneered by biologist and writer Janine Benyus. She's a co-founder of the Biomimicry Institute, a non-profit encouraging creators to discover how big challenges in design, engineering, and sustainability have often already been solved through 3.8 billion years of evolution on earth. We just have to go out and find them."

what's a mob to a king, what's a king to an emo teenager? by crossroadswrite, Yuri!!! on Ice, Otabek/Yuri, Yuuri/Victor, 12,034 words, Teen+.
2017-09 | Author's summary:
Yuri has very clear and specific instructions about how he should act around Prince Otabek Altin of Khazhakhstahnia, and none of them include giving him the up and down and going “What the fuck are you wearing?”

Prince Otabek Altin of Khazhakhstahnia glances down at his expensive-looking Disney Prince tunic and matching pants that look like they costed more than Yuri’s iPhone.

To be completely fair, he looks very good in it, and Yuri’s surprise was more about how good he looks than the actual clothes. Also the amount of green and gold assaulting his eyes. No one should be allowed to wear that much green and look good.

“Clothes,” Prince Otabek Altin of Khazhakhstahnia says. Then looks over at Yuri, eyeing his leopard print Vans with a raised eyebrow.

Yuri is going to fight him.

(or: the princess protection program au that was supposed to be quick and messy and short, but instead its over 10k and people have emotions.)

From author's notes: "a family can be an abdicated prince, a lost prince, a good prince, and a clingy king"

Dot, Dash, Star* by shorelines, Yuri!!! on Ice AU, Yuuri/Victor+Yuri, 29,358 words, Teen+.
2017-01 | Author's summary:
People with soulmates were blessed with lights like stars. Viktor Nikiforov was born without one, Katsuki Yuuri would have two, and Yuri Plisetsky pretended he had none.

They find each other anyway.

Interesting exploration of romantic & platonic soulmates.

on growing; by crossroadswrite, Yuri!!! on Ice AU, Yuuri/Victor, 139,204 words, Teen+.
2017-04 | Author's summary:
Yuri Plisetsky glares at him with all the righteousness five year olds possess, and says in heavily accented and clumsy English. “Be more gooder, stupid!”

And then he storms out in a sweep of blond hair and blue and red lights from his Sketchers.

(Or: in which Yuri Plisetsky is Victor Nikiforov's bratty five-year-old and nothing is the same.)

say you'll remember by anyadisee, Yuri!!! on Ice AU, Yuuri/Victor, 17,841 words, Teen+.
2017-05 | Author'summary:
It’s not that Yuuri blames Celestino, though. That’s really not it. He knows what Celestino’s feelings and intentions were – he’s not just a coach to Yuuri, after all, but also a friend. He worries, looks out for Yuuri, and tries to bring him out of the shell he always retreats to when things don’t go his way. If anything, it was Yuuri’s mistake. He knows how he is with alcohol. He should’ve known better.

But. What’s done is done. The only thing he can do now is damage control.

If only he can find the damage, that is.

[or, in which yuuri remembers the banquet happenings]

...And worries, but somehow finds himself trading texts with Victor anyway.

something so wholesome about you by crossroadswrite, Yuri!!! on Ice AU, Yuuri/Victor, 3,489 words, G.
2017-05 | Author's summary:
It was supposed to be his year. He was supposed to-

Celestino stops talking and squeezes his shoulder. Yuuri looks up at him, opens his mouth to say something when someone says his name.

He freezes, holds his breath for a full second against the painfully familiar voice, not daring to hope. Then, very slowly, he turns towards the source, eyes going wide with disbelieve.


(Or: in which Vicchan lives, Yuuri doesn't quite fail and doesn't quite get drunk, but manages to accidentally woo Victor Nikiforov anyway.)

"I'm not asking you to mess with them," JJ flat-out lies.

keyboard.io latest update/prototype : MechanicalKeyboards
“There are a few things QMK is better at: stability, community knowledge, available keymaps. On the other hand, Kaleidoscope brings a few things too, which QMK does not have:
• Instead of a monolithic codebase, Kaleidoscope is a very small core, with lots of plugins. This is easier to extend, and easier to puzzle the pieces YOU need together.
• Some of the features shared by both are more flexible in Kaleidoscope:
-- One-shots can be chained, so you can do Alt, Ctrl, X, instead of Alt+Ctrl+X.
-- Tap-dance is a lot easier to work with.
--You can have more than one Leader key.
-- Macros can have parts that work while the keyboard is idle.
-- MouseKeys are easier to tweak (including at runtime).
• There are features that QMK does not have:
-- Bi-directional communication with the host, which allows all kinds of reconfiguration, without compiling or flashing new firmware.
-- Magic combos.
-- A lot of LED effects.”

Friendship!!! Is Magic by afrai, Yuri!!! on Ice/Ouran High School Host Club, Haruhi + Yuuri, 10,483 words, Teen+.
2017-04 | Author's summary:
Haruhi said to the stranger, "The food's good, isn't it? Have you tried the small quiches?"

She'd spoken English on the assumption that most people in the room would likely understand it, but when the man turned it became apparent that he was Japanese. Haruhi knew this because she recognised his face. It was the face of Japan's ace skater, Katsuki Yuuri.

"K-K-Katsuki Yuuri-senshu!" Haruhi clapped her hand over her mouth, feeling the blood rise to her face.

"Ah," said Katsuki. He was different off the ice. His spectacles reduced the impact of his eyes, and the shape of his face was somehow softer, less distinctive. "Do I know you?"

Yuuri makes a friend. Viktor hates it.

Jingyan's greatest secret, that no one will ever know, is that Foya still hasn’t settled.

Wherein Jingyan's daemon recognizes Xiao Shu and events of Nirvana in Fire goes a bit differently.
