    Summary

    “It is a truth universally acknowledged that an ice skater in possession of a Grand Prix medal— of whatever metal—must be in want of another.”

    Jamie and Lizzy Bennet, a brother-sister ice dancing duo from Ann Arbor, Michigan, are no exception, and are determined to win gold at the Pyeongchang Olympics. Newfoundlander Charles Bingley, the Canadian champion for men’s singles skating, believes they can make it. His coach, Québécois two-time Olympic gold medalist, Fitzwilliam Darcy... does not.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "hey Eccentric Hat, do you want to read something that combines Pride and Prejudice, figure skating, feminism and Kierkegaardian ethics?"

    "I mean I would, but surely no one has produced something that combines that many of my interests"

    "haha SURPRISE"

    ...that is to say, I love this fic. Top notch character work all around, and the figure skating setting makes the transition to modern times work WAY better than most updates.

    Summary

    It starts, as most things do, with an extravagant banquet.

    "Dance with me?"

    He’s holding out his hand. It’s an offering, an invitation, and a dare all in one.

    The onlookers part and a blinding smile graces the dancer’s lips.

    “Of course, Your Highness.”

    Gorgeously thoughtful and emotional; one of those stories where you know off the bat that it's going to be executed well.

    Summary

    There must have been a moment. When everything changed, whether or not he knew it. There must have been, but it’s impossible to find now. The full-color truth of it is already saturating a slideshow of black and white mental images and he can’t remember what they looked like before.

    or: it takes yuri plisetsky three years to realize he’s in love with his best friend.

    Summary

    This whole thing feels so weird, like they're betraying some clause of the homosocial bro code that says it's only for fun, you can't actually be gay, like they're letting someone down. But on the other hand, being with each other is the most natural thing they've ever done. Like a chemical reaction, or two halves of something whole, or one of those hand puzzles where the two pieces of metal are all twisted around each other, or the logical and satisfying conclusion of a really good book.

    Summary

    Yuri Plisetsky will never step out of Victor's shadow. Not if Victor has anything to do with it.

    Or, the epic Nikiforov-Plisetsky rivalry in the run-up to the 2018 Olympic Games.
