    Summary

    “We live in a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don’t believe in miracles?”

    After an academic career at MIT and Oxford, Yuuri Katsuki eschews job offers at places like NASA and CERN to go work at the Very Large Array in what Phichit Chulanont lovingly calls The Actual Middle of Nowhere, New Mexico, monitoring radio frequencies from light-years away. He's loved the stars for as long as he can remember, and the universe feels so big sometimes that Yuuri is sure it would be a cruel mistake for humans to be all alone.

    Enter the latest scientist to join the staff of the VLA, enigmatic Russian genius Victor Nikiforov, around whom Yuuri’s entire universe seems to bend to make room, and the strange, recurring dreams Yuuri keeps having, where something like love carries him across the stars.

    Does love travel faster than light? Do souls?

    “The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”

    Summary

    If you ask Yuuri, he'll say that he's never been on a date, or even been asked on one.

    If you ask anyone else, they'll burst into tears.

    Alternatively titled "Five times someone tried and failed to ask Yuuri out on a date, and one time they didn't have to."

    Summary

    There are certain moments in Yuri Plisetsky’s life that he likes to forget happened at all. The time they were chased from the apartment, the landlord angrily spitting and waving threateningly at them when his mother couldn’t produce enough money for rent. Babushka’s funeral. The first time he fell in competition.

    He cannot forget that, under the black band he wears around his wrist like a shield, his soulmark may as well be nonexistent.

    Summary

    Beyond the color of their uniforms, Spock and McCoy have one thing in common: they’re both in love with the other’s best friend. Spock has “fallen in love” with Jim and doesn’t know how to get back up. Asking the captain’s confidant for romantic advice seems like the only logical solution, but becoming used to McCoy’s shocking methods will take some fortitude. Leonard, on the other hand, finds himself playing wingman to a Vulcan—a roll he gets more and more caught up in as Spock’s will-he-won’t-he romance sends the doctor into a nail-biting fury.
