    Summary

    "When I get away from skating, two L words come to mind, Life and Love. I've been neglecting both for over twenty years." - Victor Nikiforov

    Victor makes friends with depression before he knows its name, grows up with the ghost of it in his bones, gets acclimated to the chill. He's a changeling's child, a chameleon; he makes himself into all the things people want. He's acclimated to his winter life, cold and stark and glittering success.

    He has everything a person could possibly want. There's no reason for discontent.

    That is, there's no reason for disconent until Katsuki Yuuri tumbles into his arms in Sochi. Suddenly the lies Victor has told himself about his own happiness for years are pouring through his fingers like sand and the things he doesn't have at all are thrown in stark relief: he has a career and no life; he has a passion and no love.

    Or: a retelling of those twenty years of neglect, that one night in Sochi, and why the season that gave both of those things back to Victor Nikiforov was the one he spent being Katsuki Yuuri's coach.

    Summary

    “The first person in the world to land the first quintuple jump is already alive.”

     

    It’s Yuuri’s turn to surprise the world. (No, he doesn’t do that.)

    Summary

    In the weird, dizzy clarity of sleep deprivation, Yuuri gets it. Of course he warned Victor it was coming. But he’s not sure he ever told him what to do.

    (Or: some days, it's all Yuuri can do to manage his own anxiety. He certainly doesn't expect Victor to do it for him.)

    Summary

    Victor stares at Yuuri. He wonders if he looks as confused as he feels; and he already looks at least a bit of a mess with his hair mussed from how he’d carefully styled it, his costume twisted and his jacket unzipped. Yuuri stares back. They’re both trying to find something in each other’s faces, searching and asking without words until one of them provides the answer.

    “What,” Victor finally demands, “does winning have to do with our getting married?”

     

    Post-season one. Victor's past and the things he lacked, and his present with the things he's gained.

    Summary

    Victor Nikiforov is poised to win gold in his fifth consecutive Grand Prix Final. He has the world at his feet, is unparalleled in the sport--right up until a snowstorm blows into Sochi, and he finds himself repeating the same day over and over and over. He stumbles over Yuuri Katsuki, and everything changes.

    (Or, the time loop au. Loosely based on Groundhog Day.)

    Summary

    For something all in his head, it can be brutally physical when it wants to be. But he’s an athlete - he knows how to listen to his body, categorize and interpret its signals. It doesn’t really follow that the smallest twinge in his knee could mean a very bad season at the same time full-blown palpitations mean it’s a day that ends in Y. But bodies are weird.

    Victor, though. Victor is a stress test brought to life.

    Summary

    Sounds of the city beneath them fill the room, the faint cry of an ambulance, a low bass echoing from a distant club. The silver medal lies on the bedside table, innocently.

    “I’m serious.” Yuuri’s voice is barely audible against his neck. “Thank you, for everything.”

    Viktor's fingers trace the gold ring. “Ah,” He teases, “I believe you’ve already thanked me for that.”

    (They have all the time in the world.)

    Summary

    “Is that okay? I just feel tired; I can leave first.”

    “Don’t be silly.” Viktor pauses, searching his pockets for his wallet. “I kind of want to leave now, too.” He adds the last part in fragmented Japanese, and Yuuri’s heart swells to an impossible size, pushes away the bad thoughts, and lifts into the clouds.

    (Sometimes new things can be overwhelming. Yuuri learns to cope with them.)

    Summary

    These are the moments that were lost in the rush for the Gold, and the things that were built within them. A re-evaluation of everything, from day one, the real day one. From, "Be my coach, Victor!!" And how trust, friendship, and love were built from there. Through Victor's eyes, the story unfolds—the journey and experience of knowing Yuuri.

    Summary

    Death by poster. Yuuri had already avoided that humiliating fate once in his life, moving faster than a bullet train to rip all his Viktor posters down before the living legend himself had bounded into his room in Hasetsu. But it seemed like Yuuri would not be able to avoid that fate twice, not with the heartfelt way that Nikolai Plisetsky stared at him now.

    “For Yuratchka,” he said in halting English. “For birthday. Please.”

    *

    Or the story of how Death comes for Yuuri on little leopard feet after he signs a poster of himself for Yuri for his birthday.

    It had been a long time since Viktor had danced with someone. A really, really long time.

    And Yuuri knew how to flamenco. Drunk.

    Unbelievable.

    (i.e. that one time that Yuuri got black-out drunk in front of a bunch of fancy people and accidentally seduced Russia's Treasure)

    Yuuri knew Victor would kiss him at some point in time. He just didn't really think about it.

    Now that they've had their first kiss, though - he can't stop thinking about the second.

    Hiroko doesn’t need to see to coat pork cutlets in egg and panko. She has made this dish for her family for over thirty years; she’ll make it another thirty, if she’s lucky.

    Now she makes it for Yuuri and Victor as they fly home from Barcelona, with silver around their necks and gold around their fingers.

    Summary

    One of Yuuri’s hands is sliding around his waist, guiding him effortlessly until they’re dancing together. Really dancing together, and Viktor forgets to think, to breathe. Yuuri’s so close that Viktor can feel the heat of his breath against the back of his neck, the warmth of his skin through his clothes.

    Then he closes his eyes, leans into the touch, and gives in completely as he lets Yuuri lead.

    Summary

    Victor learns Japanese while in Hasetsu. He doesn't tell Yuuri, and things get dicey when he overhears Yuuri and Mari talking about him in Japanese. Repeatedly.

    (The subtitle of this fic should be: Victor Nikiforov really needs a hug. Luckily, he gets one. Eventually.)

    ~~~

    “No,” Victor says, skating up to Yuuri on the ice, “you have to push all the way from here, or you’ll never get the height you need for that axel.” He sets his hand on Yuuri’s ass, tracing the muscle group he’s referring to. “Not here.” He taps Yuuri’s thigh. He doesn’t know the words for the muscles in English, only knows how to show him.

    Yes, technically he’s grabbing Yuuri’s ass, but how else is he to communicate?
