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 ( Read more... )

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.

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?

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!
