    Summary

    It’s quiet here. Even if the car alarm on the neighbor’s goddamn BMW has been going off for the past twenty minutes. Quiet, even though the alarm’s got the neighbor’s dog howling like crazy, and the neighbor works second shift and isn’t there to comfort the dumb dog.

    It’s quiet…They haven’t spoken to each other since that morning, when Yuri went off to go see his tutor, and Otabek went off to do whatever the hell it was he did in the mornings before he hit the rink.

    “You’re used to the noise?”

    “Yeah, but…I think I like the quiet too.”

    Or: Yuri spends the summer with Otabek in Almaty.

    Summary

    Find something to live for.

    Viktor Nikiforov loved too much. What begins as a cough morphs into something that takes the shape of an unseen monster hiding in his very blood. With the Russian government scrambling to sweep under the rug the worst of a crisis that's been thirty-five years in the making and a society that sees his disease as a death sentence, Viktor is left with figuring out his own way to survive.

    It starts as a way to escape— a youtube video of music and color and light, but quickly becomes something he never expected when Yuri Katsuki teaches him that surviving is not living. Yuri teaches him that living is taking the jump into unknown and accepting all that comes with it.

    This is not a story of anger. This is not a story of fear. This is not even a story of pain.

    This is a 21st Century love overcoming the obstacles of the 20th Century's politics of fear.

    This is a story of life.

    Summary

    Yuuri Katsuki has been betrothed to the High King's son, Victor, since he was just a child; furthermore, as an omega, he's forbidden from practicing magic in combat. For years, he's been able to put off the former because the Prince was traveling abroad, and gotten around the latter by practicing with his mentor in secret.

    Now Victor Nikiforov has finally returned home, and Yuuri is being summoned to the capital for their wedding. He needs a plan to put off marriage long enough to find a way to break the betrothal, while keeping his practicing from being discovered.

    If only the Prince didn't have other ideas.

    Summary

    “Sit pretty for me, Vitya.”

    That had been ages ago.

    Or it felt like ages to Viktor, anyway.

    He’d gone down instantly, a puppet with his strings cut, dropping to his knees in perfect seiza. The response was automatic, ingrained in him. Etched in his memories, burned there, outlined with lust and submission. Yuuri spoke the words, and Viktor obeyed before the request even registered fully in his mind.

    Sit pretty.

    Yuuri made it look easy back in Hasetsu when they had semi formal dinners at Yu-topia, sitting on his heels just so, the tops of his feet flat against the floor. Flawless posture, and Viktor wouldn’t have thought there was anything demanding about it had he not assumed that same position so many times since then. Now he knew intimately how awkward it really was, how it made his feet tingle, limbs throbbing with pins and needles. Practice made perfect, though. Viktor was impatient by nature, fidgety and mouthy and constantly in motion.

    Which was why Yuuri so often made him kneel, and hush, and wait.

    Summary

    Their one night of passion in Sochi left Victor Nikiforov with a bit more of a souvenir than either he or Yuuri Katsuki bargained for. Oops?
