    Summary


    In another world, their story might have started with ‘Hi there’, or ‘Lovely sky tonight’, or ‘Hello, stranger’. Or perhaps something less cliché, something like: ‘A commemorative photo? Sure thing!’

    But in this one, it starts with an electric blue cocktail, the taste of smoke in the air. And: “You have really talented, um. Fingers.”


    Yuuri makes music with his body. Victor makes music because that's all he knows.

    (Or: After his poor performance at the Grand Prix Final, Yuuri is weary but not broken, and decides to give it one last shot. Victor plays piano three nights a week at a small jazz bar near the Detroit Skating Club, and does his best to get by.)

    Summary

    Katsuki sits cross-legged, clearly in no hurry to go anywhere. “What’s your name? I’m –”

    “I know who you are,” he cuts him off, then blushes, then hates himself for both those things. Katsuki looks surprised, and Yuri can’t think as to why. He’s a nationally ranked figure skater. He’s Yuri’s favorite figure skater.

    ~

    Yuuri and Yuri become friends and Viktor develops a crush.

    Summary

    After the Grand Prix Finals, Victor takes Yuuri on a vacation to Greece. They need quiet, and privacy, to figure out what happens next.

    Yuuri’s eyes widen and his breathing picks up. He smells like sleep and warm cotton and old champagne, and Victor just breathes in for a moment. “I’m offering you the opportunity to go to Greece, with me, for a week. To walk on the beach, swim in the ocean, drink wine and sleep in every day, if you wish. We’ll do everything and nothing. We’ll see the Acropolis. We’ll rent a boat. We’ll do anything you want,”— and here Victor dropped his voice to a purr —“but I’m tired of sharing you, Yuuri Katsuki. I want you to myself for a while.”

    Summary

    Tears pooled in Yuuri’s eyes as he rested his forehead on his tightly clasped hands. It was the dead of night, and he was bone tired from rehearsals and performances, but still he couldn’t sleep. His body began to shake and his fingers tightened their grip as he tried to control the sobs that came in quiet gasps. He bit his lower lip to stem the flow of tears, silently praying that no one else could hear him in that tiny apartment.

    Yuuri is desperate to finish his final year in Juilliard, and is offered an unconventional solution to all his problems.

    Summary

    “To my dear friend Victor Ivanovich Nikiforov, I leave the care and keeping of my beloved son Yuri, knowing that he will love him the way I do."

    Victor freezes, his mind racing ahead.

    “Vitya– this is a lot. Lilia and I, we would be willing, if this is too much for you–”

    “Of course I’ll take care of Yuri,” Victor interrupts, almost laughing, his heart bubbling with happiness, “Where is he? Can I see him?”
