    Summary

    “Viktor, do you know what cherry blossoms mean?”

    “What they mean?” Viktor tilts his head, surprised at the sudden question.

    “They can mean beauty. Or a good education. Cherry blossoms generally bloom around the time the new school year starts.” Yuuri’s eyes are unwavering on Viktor, and the colors shift in the dark irises again. “But they also mean impermanence.”

    Impermanence -- transient. Not lasting forever.

    The word sends a ripple of fear through Viktor.

    (Or, the story where Viktor accidentally brings home a cherry blossom spirit from Japan, and his life and heart are turned upside-down.)

    Summary

    Maybe Nishigori got ahold of a lock of Viktor's hair, and some Polyjuice potion. Maybe it's all an elaborate prank. With this as his only reasonable explanation, he steps forward, snags Viktor by his robes and tugs him in.
    "Nishigori," he says in Japanese, "this prank isn't funny. Your English is better than when I left, though."
    "Ah," says the fake Viktor Nikiforov in English, voice dipping, and is he blushing? "What was that?"
    "Maybe I got hit in the head by a Bludger," Yuuri muses. Viktor's smile grows ever wider, tightening at the edges. "Maybe I never came home from my international Quidditch competition. Maybe I'm lying in the hospital right now, hallucinating."
    There has to be an explanation, mystical and magical or medical, for the best Seeker in the Quidditch world showing up at his door; something besides his portrait, which won't stop talking to Yuuri anyway.

    Summary

    “Do you love me?” the King of Day says to Yuuri’s retreating back.

    Stop.

    Think.

    “I haven’t decided yet.” Yuuri confesses, “I might hate you.”

    There’s a smile in Viktor’s voice that’s sweeter than any lullaby Yuuri’s ever heard. “Then, if that’s the case, I’ll wait with you until you decide.”


    Based on beanpots's Day and Night AU, in which Day and Night fall in love through creases in time.

    Summary

    Victor learns language through mimicry, hears phrases and repeats them back until the inflection becomes second nature. Yuuri seems to communicate best through euphemism, through metaphor, through talking around the subject rather than approaching it head on, and so Victor tries his best to mimic him, to take his words and echo them back.

    (Vignettes in language learning and communication, spanning the whole series.)

    Summary

    The King of Day, Victor, drops flowers to the Ruler of Night, Yuuri, to express his love for him; yet, they are always returned, as Yuuri thinks that they’re dropped by mistake.

    Victor cries and plucks wishes off the petals every time, remembering the time when once, they had been together.
