    Summary

    Yuuri's husband is possibly not as oblivious as he seems, because he grins and asks, "Have you never looked up Yuuri?"

    "There's a porn actress with the same name who went into politics," says Nate, "so she's most of the results, and some stuff about figure skating."

    "Some stuff about figure skating," Victor says ruefully to Yuuri.

    (((A post-skating-retirement college scenario based on skygemspeaks' idea about Yuuri's college classmates learning about his figure skating career. I wrote a variation mostly because I just really wanted to include Victor in the mix. This also heavily draws on kevystel's ideas about Yuuri unknowingly breaking hearts everywhere he goes.)))

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Sardonic and hilarious look at what the rise of Voldemort might have been like. Quite Brideshead Revisited-ish in ways. Really interesting alternative characterisations for a lot of the characters, particularly Snape, Lily and James.
