The first time Yuuri sees him, he’s Link Larkin in Hairspray. He sings in a beautiful tenor, lips almost caressing each word, and he looks perfectly at home on the stage as he sings his heart out and seduces every single member of the audience. Yuuri goes back to see the show three times; that’s Victor Nikiforov for you.
Or: In which Victor is the talented actor, and Yuuri is the theater critic with a perpetual crush.
Yuri Plisetsky was recovering from a bad fall and had been drafted into playing announcer.
It was guaranteed to be the greatest ice show ever.
Phichit seems unaware of Yuuri’s distress, “You know, if you just pushed your hair back—“ He leans in to push Yuuri’s hair back from his forehead, and Yuuri swears he’s back in chemistry watching his desk burst into flame, wondering if Victor Nikiforov’s infamous cascade of silver hair now has singe marks at the end of it.
“—you’d look just like him.”
“Don’t! ” Yuuri screeches.
“What? Why?” Phichit leans back from the sheer volume of Yuuri’s distress.
“I….was born without a forehead!” This is why Minako has him practice standard press answers—his brain’s a wildcard when he goes off-script.
“Really, Yuuri? That’s what you’re going with?”
Yuuri Katsuki lives a double life: by day he's a normal high school student, by night he's Eros,one of the world's most in demand pop stars.
Everything's just fine until pop sensation Victor Nikiforov decides he want to have "normal teenage experience" and enrolls at Yuuri's school.
(A very loose Hannah Montana au where the only thing you need to know about the show is that Yuuri has a secret pop-star identity.)
