AO3 talk + one pic

I'm wondering whether I should post my cross-country fics to AO3. Well, two of them, at least. Not so sure about the third, for obvious reasons. In one way, it would be interesting to put them up there, as I might reach new readers and such. But in the other, "Skiing RPF" is a mini-fandom on there, with something like 3 fics up (two of those in Russian!) - and that's all ski sports included, even alpine skiing. So, I'm not sure it makes sense to add my stuff and have it available that openly.

What do you think? Good or bad idea? Or simply a meaningless one?

Also, let's change topic from fics to facts. First of all, I can mention that Johannes was 2nd on the 100m supersprint yesterday. Ludvig Søgnen Jensen won, of course - which was expected, as he's a bit of a specialist on these super-short races. Johannes posted a pic of them both on IG last night, saying that "I tried to beat Ludvig this time as well, but no. Here we're discussing what went wrong." So, it's nice to see that they seem to be good friends, and that there is such a nice tone between them.

I'm still not done talking about the regular sprint from Thursday, though. Or rather, let's talk about this photo from the podium after that race:

That's Johannes on top of the podium, with Even Northug in 2nd and Karl-Johan Dyvik (from Sweden) in 3rd place. Perhaps it doesn't seem like such a special pic to you, apart from the fact that it's always special to see him on top of the podium.

But... there is another interesting detail here. Have a look at Johannes' hat. In fact, I recommend that you zoom into it if you can't see it properly on the pic. I know I had to do that when I saw the pic from my phone.

He’s wearing a Superman hat! Complete with the logo as well as the text!

I mean it - can he even be this (perfectly) cheeky?!

You have to love this guy. Seriously!
