    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.

    Summary

    When Petunia Dursley refused to take Harry in she forfeited his birthright protection, so Dumbledore took the baby to the safest place he knew: Hogwarts.

    The applicable staff (mostly just… not Snape) took Harry in on a rotating schedule as he grew from baby to toddler to child. They traded extra credit for babysitting among the older students, and Harry grew up knowing a few dozen different laps that were safe and warm to nap in.

    This was a Harry who grew up among books, among old transient walls and learned professors. They gave Binns night duty sometimes, and let him talk young Harry to sleep. This was a Harry whose world changed, on principle, daily. The stairs moved. The walls became doors. You had to keep your eyes open–you had to pay attention. So he did.

    He grew up in a school. Knowledge was power, but knowledge was also joy. This was his sanctuary. There was magic in his world from birth.

    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)

    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?
