    Summary

    Haruhi said to the stranger, "The food's good, isn't it? Have you tried the small quiches?"

    She'd spoken English on the assumption that most people in the room would likely understand it, but when the man turned it became apparent that he was Japanese. Haruhi knew this because she recognised his face. It was the face of Japan's ace skater, Katsuki Yuuri.

    "K-K-Katsuki Yuuri-senshu!" Haruhi clapped her hand over her mouth, feeling the blood rise to her face.

    "Ah," said Katsuki. He was different off the ice. His spectacles reduced the impact of his eyes, and the shape of his face was somehow softer, less distinctive. "Do I know you?"

     

    Yuuri makes a friend. Viktor hates it.

    Summary

    "He's so beautiful, Chris," he says it almost like a prayer. "He's beautiful and I was a fool, and I wish I didn't have to feel so guilty about loving him."

    The understanding that dawns in Chistophe's eyes is at once a relief and a heartache.

    "Oh, Victor," he says, and the smile he gives him is the smallest and saddest Victor has ever seen him give.

    (Or, alternatively: Victor ties himself into a knot known as Katsuki Yuuri—in more ways than one—and they navigate their way to each other in a series of fits and starts, miscommunication, and Herculean pining.)

    Summary

    Yuuri thinks his life is progressing nicely. Good job. Nice apartment. Boyfriend? Nevermind: cheating ex boyfriend

    His blackout drunken antics attract the young Olympic-gold level skater, Victor Nikiforov, who's fled from skating in the middle of the season after fainting on the ice.

    It all sounds very serendipitous but Yuuri wants nothing to do with men. Victor, desperate and running from his problems, promises that instead of a man, he'll be Yuuri's "pet" if that means he can stay with Yuuri for a little, citing that he has nowhere else to turn. Yuuri's concerned that this shameless man who is willing to sacrifice his dignity so readily will get himself in trouble, so he accepts the offer with second-hand embarrassment.

    This gambit lasts for all of two days before Yuuri finds himself teaching an ice skater how to dance off his blades, and Victor starts finding new reasons to stay in Japan.

    Summary

    Now, the thing is that the pond on Route 102 isn’t much of a place for swimming. The entire area is rather uninhabited, save for the few young trainers fresh from home and the wild Pokémon that live there. People fish in the pond, but that’s about it. So when what is unmistakably a hand touches Yuuri’s foot, he’s not exactly at fault for screaming out loud and toppling into the water.
    “What the—” he sputters, scrambling to grab onto Milotic while gripping the Ultra Ball tightly. “Who the hell—”
    “Oh, sorry!” someone says from next to him. “I just wanted to tell you that you dropped a Pokéball.”
    Yuuri turns, and his brain short-circuits. All those years of learning how to communicate, of learning how to be a proper member of human society fly out of his head and somewhere into the soupy, blue depths of the pond, because Viktor Nikiforov—Pokémon Champion of the Hoenn Region for seven consecutive years and the love of ten-year-old Yuuri’s life—is leaning on Yuuri’s Milotic, treading water next to him, and most definitely not wearing a shirt.


    Yuuri's a tired but talented Pokémon researcher, and Viktor is the prodigal Champion who's a little in love.
