    Summary

    It’s childish to say that he wants it for himself—to be first, to be best—but he does. It’s selfish, but this is a competition. You don’t become the best by being nice. (When he says this to Hajime, he looks at him and says “You’re not a mean person, Tooru. You don’t have to change yourself to win.”)

    or: tooru grows up, and stars shine until they burn themselves out

    Summary

    Rebecca and Valencia have always had a... complicated relationship. But after the events of the season two finale, Valencia is surprised to realize that, regardless of their turbulent past, all she wants is to comfort her friend. After all, she's been through almost the same thing, and she knows the pain Rebecca is feeling — and besides, it hurts to see her friend hurting. Meanwhile, Rebecca's surprised to find out Valencia's actually pretty good at this comforting thing. As much as she's idealized Valencia, she's overlooked this side of her.

    As the two women grow closer and learn more about each other, their relationship develops in a way neither of them anticipated. But given her tendency towards self-sabotage, is Rebecca even capable of dating right now? Between their two intense personalities, it will be a challenge to make this relationship work. But that doesn't mean it won't be worth it.

    Summary

    It was on an otherwise perfectly ordinary Wednesday morning in St. Petersburg when Yuuri had apparently decided to shake Victor’s sense of calm to the very core. Again.

    “It’s strange that we’re already engaged and we never even went on a real date,” Yuuri said. His voice was casual, his eyes calm. There was no hint of rage in his body language, or even annoyance, only mild puzzlement. He was taking his skates off, his cheeks pink from the cold air. The ring gleams on his fingers as he yanks the skate off his left foot.

    Victor looked up from his phone and stared at Yuuri. He hadn’t been doing anything for the past year and a half other than deliberately seducing and courting Yuuri.

    Had he missed something?

    Summary

    He had trusted him.

    Yuri had trusted him. No matter what, no matter how many times he forgot about him, no matter how many promises he broke, Yuri had always trusted Victor. He had been like family.

    But Yuri should have learned long ago that family didn't mean much after all.

    Summary

    You can only go on so many dates without giving things a label. The moon base is small and kind of nosy. Taako isn't the most charismatic elf, no one wants to hear a sad backstory, and Kravitz? Well fuck, the guy's too good to be true right? Or in this case alive I guess.

    It starts with some gossip on a nosy moonbase, an interruption via Magnus, and things kind of spiral downward. For better or worse Taako and Kravitz need to sit down and have a few more non-business conversations.

     

    (Set after ep. 50 and before The Suffering Game.)

    Summary

    The first time is expected to lead to a second time. But Spock is trembling. Fortunately, Jim knows just what to do.

    While I've written a lot of fanfics, this is my first time ever writing slash, though a very mild variety - I'm hoping it's emotional, touching, a bit exhilarating and sweet. Let me know how I did!

    Summary

    Victor stared at him, keeping the spoon steady in his hand. It reminded him, unexpectedly, of his grandparents, who, although they almost always cooked together, still insisted on letting one taste what the other was making on some particular occasion. For the first time in several weeks, Victor thought again: Wow, I’m really going to get married.

    Or. The miraculous process of Victor learning how to cook, in short installments.

    Feat. comfortable clothes, Victor very much cooking, Yurio cooking, Yuuri cooking, Yuuri's mom helping with the cooking, Chris being a cooking muse and advisor, various people (but mostly Yuuri) trying out the results of the cooking, and suspiciously vague and artistic descriptions of ice skating.

    Summary

    Science is verifiable. It is understandable. Even when the answer you seek is disproved utterly, there are assurances in place, lines etched into the sand. There is procedure. There is order. None of these exist within the constructs of love.

    Summary

He thought that maybe these feelings would subside over time, he could get over his friend and move on.
