    Summary

    “You make axel combos look easy. The way you spin, the way you ground yourself, the way you use your petite figure and stereotypically feminine features to your advantage proves your strength. I can’t recall a single time that I’ve seen you on the ice and not been glued to the screen the whole time.”

    Yuri scoffs, folding his arms across his chest. The fire begins to burn brighter. “That sounds pretty stalker like to me.”

    There’s a muffled laugh, or maybe a chuckle would better describe it, and this one Yuri knows belongs to Otabek. It has a genuine rawness to it that can’t be faked.

    “Now that you mention it, it does, doesn’t it?”

    Summary

    AU. Before the Grand Prix Final starts in Sochi, Yuuri finds Victor's phone. He returns it--and hijinks and heavy flirtation ensue.

    (Just about everything that happens at the Sochi GPF happens here, so if something that happens there might bother you, check the tags?)

    ~~~

    Yuuri hated looking at pictures of himself. His hair had started sticking up again. And he had that horrible star-struck smile on his face. Plus, he was blushing, and blushing always made him look so young.

    “Aaaaaah.” Yuuri winced. “I look so…”

    Victor winked at him. “Cute!”

    Before Yuuri could protest, Victor dropped the photo into Instagram and started typing a caption.

    My champion! I thought I lost my phone this morning, but look who returned it? Our very own…

    Yuuri watched as Victor’s agile thumbs (so agile, and no, he was not going to think about what else Victor could do with them) stopped moving. That fan-struck part of him that had been screaming mentally in the back of his mind came to a slow halt.

    Victor didn’t know his name.

    Summary

    “What would you like today?” A gentle, smooth voice interrupted his reading. Viktor closed his phone and opened his mouth to order as he looked up.

    The words died in his throat and he felt like he was just punched in the gut when all the air in his lungs suddenly deserted him.

    There was a goddamn angel in front of him.

    Yuuri would have never thought that Victor Nikiforov would fail to medal at the Grand Prix Final.

    He really would have never thought they'd be running away together in a mutual retirement.

    He certainly would have never thought that they would then come out of said retirement only a year later to compete together.

    Something gold catches the light, drawing his attention. There’s a gold ring on Victor’s ring finger. “Ah,” Yuuri says, his heart giving a last squeeze, a futile reminder of the silly crush he once had. “Congratulations on your marriage,” he says, as cheerily as he can.

    In which Yuuri gets into an accident that wipes his memory of everything that happened after his first Grand Prix, Yurio and Victor help him retrace his journey, and Yuuri rediscovers himself along the way.

    Here’s a tragic sentence:
    Victor Nikiforov tore his ACL in his right knee during the 2015 Grand Prix Series in the middle of his free skate.
    Here’s what’s actually tragic about it:
    He did nothing wrong.

    After an injury at the GPS that prevents his 5th consecutive win, Victor vows to return to skating to reclaim his title. Katsuki Yuuri is a ballet danseur who suffered a similar injury years before and made a successful comeback. Yuuri choreographs and coaches Victor through his toughest competitive season yet, but as it will always be, they fall in love along the way.

    Summary

    “Victor has been inspired by his experiences in Japan, where he coached the supposedly washed-up Yuuri Katsuki to his astonishing silver medal in the Grand Prix,” says the English-speaking commentator in Yuuri’s headphones. “It’s clear that Japanese culture means a lot to him! We do not have a translation yet for the Japanese characters he has chosen to, er, include in his costume, but this acknowledgement shows the graciousness we have come to expect from Nikiforov -”
