    Summary

    WILL BE BACK IN JUNE

    Katsuki Yuuri is an okay skater with a few fans, none of which he’s made a significant impact on. Or so he thought. When he finds out he has fan mail, he is skeptical but it ends up changing his season. He has people who look up to him and are rooting for him. He can’t let them down.

    And when he receives a nice passive aggressive letter from a teenager in Russia, he never imagined he would gain a friend out of it.

    Yuri Plisetsky was not expected a response when he wrote a letter to his favorite skater. He just had to tell him that his skating was good and he better up the difficulty before Yuri kicked his ass in seniors.

    But Yuuri responded and wanted him to write back, in fact they kept writing letters back and forth. He was becoming friends with his idol.

    And somehow Yuuri had gotten him to sympathize with the silver haired idiot. Maybe Viktor was more sad then he let on...

    This season was going to be different, skating, friends, relationships, and family.

    ‘Dear Yuuri Katsuki,

    Your skating is not terrible.

    Well that was one way to start a letter...’

    Summary

    He was starting to feel like he was out of surprises. That he had nothing left to give. He was tired, but it wasn’t the kind that made his muscles sore, or his joints ache. Not the kind that made his eyelids droop, or his limbs heavy. He was tired of living up to the expectations placed upon him, and even more tired from attempting to live up to his own.

    s1 from Viktor's POV, essentially.

    Summary

    Victor Nikiforov has a well-paying job, a charming wife, and two over-achieving kids who love him with all their hearts. He has never felt more empty in his life.

    Yuri Plisetsky is done with his school's shit, wants to bone his hot, new Maths teacher, and kill his parents. Oh, and take his sister to Disneyland, some day. That's not unreasonable, is it?

     

    (AKA the one where the father and son meet the loves of their life and collectively make everything harder for everyone involved.)

    Summary

    Miserable and alone, Viktor is unable to forget about Yuuri after a magical night spent together at the Royal Banquet. So he takes the only logical step a pining mer prince can make: strike a deal with the royal Sea Witch in order to find his beloved. But unfortunately for Viktor, love and magic are not a game, especially when the object of one's affection is determined not to play. And what he could end up finding out about Yuuri may become a deal breaker.

    -

    Yuuri, a lonely Sea Witch who works his magic in secret, is determined to never see Viktor again. But late one night he is awoken by a friend, who is terrified that the young mer prince has gotten himself lost in his attempts to find Yuuri again. Although scared of what another meeting might bring, Yuuri sets out to find Viktor before anything can happen to him.

    The two find each other again - but not in ways either of them expected, and with consequences neither of them could have ever anticipated.

    [Or: the story of a Sea Witch who helps a prince learn how to save himself, all while hopelessly falling in love along the way]

    [Sequel to "I Want Something Just Like This"]

    [Fanfic with accompanying art]

    Summary

    “I think it would be better if we broke up.”

    Yuuri’s world did not fall to pieces hearing those words from Victor’s mouth, but only because his world had been shattering bit by painful bit for weeks now. Weeks of dodged calls, cancelled dates and vague excuses. This was just the culmination, an inevitability.

    --

    When Victor and Yuuri's relationship ends, Yuuri is left behind in the wreckage, trying to make sense of the pieces.

    Summary

    “You’re having a lot of trouble taking off the mask this time.” It wasn’t really a question, but Victor nodded anyway.

    “It’s this place, these people. The familiarity. None of them ever wanted to see the real me. And you… you’re so far away.” The Victor Nikiforov persona had been a comfort, once, before it had become a prison. Without Yuuri to keep him grounded, Victor had wrapped himself back up in it without even realizing. It had felt safe, soothing, until he’d realized he was trapped by it.

    Yuuri cleared his throat. “I could…” he paused, a delicate flush ghosting across his cheeks, “talk you through it?”

    Summary

    “You’re only given one little spark of madness. You musn’t lose it.” ~ Robin Williams

    Viktor feels the numbness set into him when he lays eyes on one of his fellow skaters and feels that little spark. Call it inspiration, call it madness, he has to chase after it.

    Update: As this hangs in my head, there is a strong big brother/father-son dynamic forming with Yura. in fact, I may do a little prequel to show that connection. I've also removed the canon compliant sorta tags. Because in this AU, you will see Yura becoming a permanent fixture in this little makeshift family. I haven't excited how I'm bringing him in. It's played out several ways.

    Summary

    While he ran a sleeve over his wet face, Yuuri stepped back to take a look at his newest work. The colors and the dynamic of the brushstrokes resembled the strong breeze over the sea. The fading beauty of the setting sun, putting the sky on fire right before the night would come and put everything into darkness. It was so bittersweet. Just like the music it was inspired by. The dampened tones of a violin that was played by one of Yuuri’s neighbors. It was pure magic. The emotions that came with the stroked strings filling his heart. Even the sad melody quieting the loud voices of his anxiety for once. And it never failed to strike his inspiration.
    ***
    Victor stared at the floor in front of him. Bow still in his hand, the violin leaning on his shoulder. When has he become so lonely? When did everything start to feel numb? His inner turmoil had begun to influence his music. He couldn’t bring the notes to life anymore. He just played them, never felt them. The only times he felt his music were his impro sessions at home. The little gallery down the street had become his source of inspiration. The usual vibrant colors brim with emotions, Victor had almost forgotten he had.

    Summary

    "Don't feel bad for the suicidal cats. Gotta kill themselves nine times before they get it right" - Fall Out Boy.

    Had it always been like this? There’d always been a fatalistic streak to Viktor.
    He’d been running so desperately from the rising tide, jumping up and up the stairs so he would finally, finally get somewhere away from the water… And he’d found the top of the ladder. And there was nothing up there.

    Of course, a ladder is just a ladder. And what’s on top of it depends on what’s inside of us, everyone knows that.
    Viktor? He was drowning on air.
