    Praise for On Ice: Violin

    “Poignant and touching—an exhilarating journey in just a few hundred pages. Yuuri Katsuki proves to us once again that he is a veritable genius of words.”
    —Kirkus Reviews

    “Katsuki’s sequel to the critically acclaimed On Ice: Piano is everything we ever wanted and more.”
    —Booklist

    “On Ice: Violin is an absolute wonder. If you’re going to read one book by Yuuri Katsuki this month, this better be it.”
    —Sara Crispino, author of Letters to the Venetian

    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?

    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

    Crushes (and subsequently, love) don't just blindside you on a lazy Saturday afternoon. For Akira, it all began in May with a heist to steal an artist's heart.

    And no, the irony isn't lost on him.

    Or: all the little moments that made the leader of the phantom thieves fall for his foxy, if a little oblivious, teammate.
