    Summary

    Yuuri's love life has never been the most fortunate, since his first relationship ended in a break-up (sort of...) and his boyfriend of almost a year cheated on him. He takes it all as a sign to solely concentrate on work and parenthood, trying to ignore his heartbreak.

    -

    Newly-dumped Victor jumps at the chance to get away from things by taking his friend Mila's advice and taking a spur-of-the-moment trip. It almost works, but he can't quite dodge his loneliness or an encroaching identity crisis. Then he meets Yuuri on a day when an autumn wind blows strong.

    Summary

    The whole cabin shakes as the plane lifts off, and Ash feels fluttery and buoyant like the kites he and Griff used to fly in Cape Cod. He presses his forehead against the glass of his small oval window, watching New York shrink until Ash could cup Central Park in his palm and let the Hudson cascade between his fingers, Lady Liberty sitting on his thumb.

    He cranes his neck to keep looking even as the plane pulls him further and further away from his city. He lets it go, places a hand over his chest pocket, over Eiji's letter, over his heart.

    It's lonely leaving home, but staying without Eiji would be even lonelier.

    Ash can't wait to see him again.

     

    Hemingway's leopard finally comes back down.

    Summary

    “Do you still paint your nails at all?” Yuuri asks.
    “Yeah,” Victor says—and it’s a moment before he realizes this is a lie. He still intends to paint his nails. He still thinks of himself as the sort of person who paints his nails. But he hasn’t actually done it in years.

    Summary

    “He hasn’t worn one of these in years,” Yuuko sighed, tapping her finger against the image. “A shame, really, he looked so great in them too. I’m sure he’d look just as amazing as he did then.”

    After a minor mishap mid-Russian Nationals, Yuuri takes it upon himself to show Victor just how much he means to him.
