    Summary

    It’s not that Yuuri blames Celestino, though. That’s really not it. He knows what Celestino’s feelings and intentions were – he’s not just a coach to Yuuri, after all, but also a friend. He worries, looks out for Yuuri, and tries to bring him out of the shell he always retreats to when things don’t go his way. If anything, it was Yuuri’s mistake. He knows how he is with alcohol. He should’ve known better.

    But. What’s done is done. The only thing he can do now is damage control.

    If only he can find the damage, that is.

     

    [or, in which yuuri remembers the banquet happenings]

    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    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

    “So, what are you working on?” he hears Katsuki ask conversationally, once he’s pulled up a chair to Yuri’s table. “Trig?”

    Yuri leans back in his chair, roughly brushing his bangs out of his face.

    “Yeah,” he mutters reluctantly, when it becomes apparent he’s going to have to talk to him. Still, he pulls the packet closer, curling around it almost protectively. He doesn’t know how else he’s supposed to tell Katsuki to butt out. A year ago, when he’d first met the guy, a simple glare had been more than enough to send him cowering, but now…? Now, Katsuki is used to him. He doesn’t coo over him like Mila, or mercilessly tease him like Victor; but at some point, Katsuki has grown comfortable around Yuri.

    The thought that he can no longer intimidate his biggest competition makes him twitch.

    --

    Or, five times Yuuri helped Yuri, and one time Yuri returned the favor. (Yuuri+Yuri friendship, background Victuuri)
