    Summary

    The photographer in Otabek was moved first, seeing the lines of the profile, the pushed-back golden hair and the slender form, all cast against the dingy white stone of the buildings behind him. Then the expression — the watchful eyes, the downturned mouth that disdained its own hopes, the jut of the small chin. Part of the night scene, yet somehow cast in relief against it, like a figure stepping from a painting to address the viewer.

    Appraising green eyes slid to the side, narrowing. “What do you want?” the young man growled, in heavily-accented French.

    The man in Otabek bloomed to life, curling flames moving through his body at the familiar tones. He swallowed hard, setting his jaw and tightening his grip on the rail behind him. “You speak Russian?” he asked, the language a sweet ache on his tongue. Not the solid, earthy Kazakh of his childhood, but not French either, as effervescent and bad for the head as too much champagne.

    Summary

    “Is it morning?”

    “No,” Yuuri whispers. “Did you know we’re married?”

    Viktor blinks at him. “Yes,” he says. “We are.” Then he rolls over into Yuuri, face buried against his neck. His breathing slows; he’s fast asleep within seconds. Yuuri toys with the soft hair at the nape of Viktor’s neck, Viktor exhaling against his skin. If he could, he would dissolve himself in an instant, be drawn like the air into Viktor’s lungs and live nestled there in his blood, in his heart, always.

    Between one sweet thought about Viktor and the next, Yuuri’s eyes fall closed; he sleeps, too.

    Love letters in Spain are a Nikiforov family tradition.

    Summary

    Victor, Lost Among Roses. It’s the title that caps it all off, scrawled in ink along the inner edge of the canvas. The subject of the painting is entirely aware of the artist’s eye; he isn’t being stumbled upon in a clearing, but has instead chosen to expose himself—in a very literal sense—to the viewer. He’s pulled out of time and space, ageless and timeless and untethered from anything that could attach a real human being to his stunning image. It’s weirdly dizzying; the title has echoed around in Yuuri’s head for weeks and weeks. He knows it might just be a quirk of his own mind—that this particular collection of hues and brush strokes are composed to precisely appeal to the neurons in Yuuri’s brain that define and recognize beauty. He’s never had this kind of a reaction to any other piece of art, nude or otherwise. The painting is so beautiful, so intimate, that Yuuri has come to see it at least a dozen times in the past month alone.
    Phichit’s eyes narrow. “Is this an objectophilia thing? Like that woman who married a bridge?”
    “No,” Yuuri replies. “It’s just…I don’t know. It’s a beauty thing.”
    “Could we steal it instead?” Phichit offers. “It’d look great above the toilet in your bathroom.”
