    Summary

    The streetcars weren’t particularly crowded this time of day. There was even a seat available as Yuri got on and he debated taking it. Most days, he would have been right on it, but sitting down seemed like a losing proposition today.

    Betting against gravity is always bad money. Yuri snorted under his breath as the words he’d heard his grandfather say so many times ran through his head. He used to repeat the phrase through giggles when he was younger like it was the best joke he’d ever heard. The idea seemed so obvious as to be absurd. Of course gravity always won.

    The absurdity of it had worn off some with age, since Yuri had discovered too many ways that gravity could pull at him for it to be quite so funny anymore.

    Summary

    It's January of 2018, our crew is in New York for publicity, and the Olympic team list for Russia just came out. Victor's name isn't on it, despite a decisive win at Russian Nationals.

    If there's anything that pisses Yuri Plisetsky off more than losing, it's not having a chance to beat his rivals on the ice. And if there's anything worse than his mentor retiring, it's his mentor being snubbed by the Russian Figure Skating Federation.

    He's spent too much time fighting to get back on his feet to take this lying down.

    (Three vigniettes: One centered on Yuri, one centered on Victor and Yuuri, and the answer to a question.)

    Summary

    Mila has been struggling with the move to Hasetsu. Sara has been struggling with her brother. Things come to a head after 2018 Worlds.

    Sara grinned. “What, no, ‘Sorry, I’m straight’?”
    “I’ve never thought about it,” Mila said, leaning over one of her legs.
    “Never?” Sara asked.
    “Have you, really?” Mila asked.
    Sara shrugged. “My brother has done a fair job of convincing me that most men are terrible, partly by example, and I’m really, really done with him running interference on my social life. I don’t think it will occur to him if I’m getting friendly with girls that there’s anything more to it.”
    “Yeah, but are you actually attracted to girls?” Mila asked.
    Sara blushed, looked around, and then gave a very small nod when it became clear that Michele had been distracted by Emil.
    Mila blinked, and then smiled. “Good for you.”

    Summary

    Of all the blows puberty had dealt him, Yuri thought, this was definitely the cruelest. His debut year was supposed to be glorious, not some flash in the pan and then too tall to even function.

    I can’t believe they’re not going to let me compete.

    The ice felt fine under his skates. The nagging pain that had been so wearing and terrifying was almost completely gone. The adrenaline of the argument fueled him around the rink, the cut of the blade strong, decisive. He turned, feeling the ice, then went into a spin, feeling his balance.

    Fuck them all.

    They were all watching him, so he slowed a little as he approached the rail. “See, I’m fucking fine. I can skate. You just watch me.”

    Our crew goes to Ostrava for the European Championships. Nothing quite goes as planned.
    (This work is part of a series which strongly relies on what has gone before.)

    Summary

    Due to Yuri’s spontaneous and ill advised jaunt to Japan last time, he’s forced to take a chaperone if he wants to perform in Vitya's ice show, something he would have complained about incessantly if it had been anyone other than Lilia. But Hasetsu is where the 1998 Benois de la Danse recipient lives and Lilia has no issues volunteering to take charge of Yuri if she gets to meet the Minako Okukawa.

    Summary

    Yuri Plisetsky hits puberty. Puberty hits back.

    Post season one, this story is a companion to the other stories in the series, and fleshes out details that the Yuuri and Victor POV misses.

    The wedding was every bit the romantic shitshow Yuri had expected it to be. The audience was small, but the magazine people had managed to pull out every bit of dramatic whimsy possible for something done on such short notice.
    There was a fucking ice swan.
    “There’s a fucking ice swan,” Yuri muttered to Otabek, as they waited in the rink for the ceremony to start.

     
    Complete! This should be read alongside parts 4 and 5 of the series.

    Summary

    Moving is always a little strange. Moving to a possibly hostile country while training hard and preparing for a wedding in less than three weeks? Might not be the best idea they've ever had, but it's better than the alternatives.

    Victor looked around and said, “I think I want to go home now.”
    “I thought we were going to spend some time in the ballet studio?” Yuuri asked.
    “Only if I can kiss you somewhere,” Victor said.
    “God, gross,” Yuri said, coming up behind them. “Get a broom closet.”
    Victor turned to Yuri, seized his shoulders, gave him a peck on each cheek and said, “You’re brilliant, Yurochka.”
    “Gah, fuck off. Ugh, no, on second thought… Just… GO. Minako is expecting you though. And Lilia. Both of them.” Yuri sighed. “You all deserve each other."

    Finished! Chapter 1 is story/series notes because I'm Wordy McWorderson.
    Please read the whole series, these stories are deeply connected to each other.

    Summary

    Lilia’s relationship with her fellow ballerinas wasn’t usually complicated. Usually, she knew exactly where she stood. Not so with Minako Okukawa who had disappeared from the ballet world some years ago to hide in the dance studio of a backwater town in Japan.

    Lilia didn’t care about that, of course. Not at all. She just deserved a vacation, to Japan, incidentally.

    Summary

    Hers was not a voice that she had expected to hear along the crowded streets of Barcelona, but when it reached her ears she recognized the dulcet tones instantly.

    (“Come with me,” Minako had whispered in the darkness of the night, in a time long past.)

    Summary

    Podfic of even as the echo by cordialcount

    Summary: Given what Minako had once built with Lilia—and what they'd given up, out of a fear Victor was clearly too high on Yuuri to give a damn about—it seemed cruel to voice this, even if Lilia would have said it herself without hesitation.
