    Summary

    When a magic user's craft fully matures it manifests in the form of a spirit guardian taking the shape of a magical creature. Mages and elves who bear these familiars spend a year traveling through four kingdoms, where they present them to each of the high courts of the aes sidhe throughout the year's festivals. Both Viktor and Yuuri have their reasons for hiding the full extent of their gifts -- Viktor's been hurt before, when his own powers were used against him; Yuuri's been warned that everyone will abuse his gift. The world they live in is one burdened with legacy and expectation; wars fought long ago that linger and divide.

    So what will happen when Viktor's younger brother, Yuri, comes of age and must travel the wheel, and in doing so, makes two bright stars finally cross?

    "the edge of the receding glacier

    where painfully and with wonder
    at having survived even
    this far

    we are learning to make fire"

    - Margaret Atwood, Habitation

    Summary

    AU where everyone is a shifter, set post-canon. Yuri, Yuuri and Viktor go out mushroom picking in the forests near St Petersburg when Yuri and Yuuri are surprised by a wild boar. More surprising to Yuri, though, is what Yuuri shifts into in order to protect him. Viktor is desperately relieved that they both survived, even though Yuuri is hurt; in the end, this might be the first step along the road to convincing his Yuuri that his shifted form is beautiful, not scary.

    Summary

    Everyone gets a timer eventually. The shortest one Yuuri had ever seen was Yuuko’s which was only counting down from five until she met Nishigori. Yuuri’s, however, started at seven hundred only to freeze at fifty.

    Yuuri had never seen a frozen timer on anyone’s wrist but he never needed anyone to tell him that his soulmate was long dead.

    Or; Victor and Yuuri aren’t soulmates but they still try.

    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.)

    Beta'd for me, as always, by circ_bamboo, who as usual isn't even in this fandom but still loves me enough to read my writing anyway.

    Summary

    Not the stars in the sky, but the stars on the stage – or: in a high school production of Romeo & Juliet, Yuuri Katsuki is cast as Juliet. His long-time crush and the golden boy of the theatre department Viktor Nikiforov is cast as Romeo. The problem is, Yuuri can’t tell if Viktor’s flirtatiousness is just method acting, or if it might be something more.
