    Summary

    Despite the fact they've been competing in the same competitions for years, Victor Nikiforov doesn't meet Katsuki Yuuri until the Sochi Grand Prix Final. On the other hand, there's a boy who's been watching him for years and Victor's desperate to know his name.

    In which Victor pines, everybody drinks too much, and Yakov deserves a sainthood for putting up with these idiots. Basically, it's a decade's worth of near misses, misunderstandings, and pure obliviousness.

    Summary

    It's not always easy being in the public eye as the face of your sport when you're an introvert that would rather read. Five times Russia's Living Legend of Figure Skating had to navigate raucous socialization when he really wanted to just sit in quiet to recharge and the one time he had a fabulous time and didn't care.

    AKA the Intovert Victor fic.

    Summary

    It is one thing to represent his country in the international arena, to skate with a flag on the side of his skating boots and the ever present tag at the end of his name, Victor Nikiforov of Russia. It's another thing entirely to know that there's a face and a person to the nation, with his own thoughts and wants and neuroses.

    Victor has known the living manifestation of his country, in all its frigid and violent glory, for most of his competitive career.

    Yuuri will meet his after making history upon the ice.

     

    (No knowledge of Hetalia is needed to enjoy this fic, but hopefully fans of APH!Russia and Japan will like how I've written them).

    Summary

    The bite of pancake is delightfully buttery, with a tang from the cheese curds. Yuuri isn't sure what his expression is like, but Victor's smile brightens, and his phone goes up.

    "Say syrniki!"

    That photo's going to end up on Instagram in less than a minute. Yuuri ducks, and when Victor whips his phone to follow, Yuuri grabs Victor's elbow and drags him over so they're both caught in the shot. Victor laughs, a long line of warmth mashed up against Yuuri's side. He tucks his arm around Yuuri's waist and raises his phone again.

    Victor uses variations of the same caption every time: Reexploring St. Petersburg with #katsukiyuuri #oneplateatatime

    "You're ridiculous," Yuuri whispers, after the camera goes off.

    Victor smiles. "Ridiculous, but yours."

     

    (Yuuri has done the transcontinental uprooting of his life twice before and it's never easy, but this time there are photos plastered all over Victor's social media, explorations into Russian cuisine, shenanigans with the Russian figure skating national team, calls and messages from friends and family, and Victor, always.

    Victor, on the other hand, mostly copes by watching Yuuri adapt to life in St. Petersburg).
