    Summary

    Yuuri wakes up in Victor’s room the night after the Sochi Grand Prix Final banquet. Did they sleep together? No. Instead, last night, Drunk Yuuri taunted Victor that he hadn’t earned the right to get in his pants…and spelled out exactly what Victor would have to do to get there.

    Now, Victor intends to do everything on that list…

    ~

    “The conversation,” Victor says, “went something like this. You said I wasn’t getting in your pants that easily.”

    Victor says this in a normal tone of voice. Anyone could hear him. Yuuri looks around, but if anyone is paying attention, they’re pretending not to.

    “Naturally, I asked what I would have to do to get in your pants.”

    “Ah.” Yuuri blushes. “How embarrassing. What do you mean, naturally? Why would you ask that?”

    Victor tilts his head. “Because I want to get in your pants. I thought that much was obvious by now.”

    ~

    Note: Yuuri is not in a great headspace post Sochi Grand Final, and this fic necesssarily touches on mental health issues so please check the tags.

    Undiscovered Country // shysweetthing

    Amazing canon-divergent AU that develops Yuuri and Victor's relationship from the premise that they stayed in contact after Yuuri's disastrous drunken coaching proposal. The author does such a tender and well-balanced job of presenting both characters as distinctly human, each with their own flaws and doubts!

    World of Our Making // fmo

    How convenient that Bucky should turn up in the 21st century right after Steve does. How mind-bogglingly, astonishingly convenient... one might even say it's impossible. What if, instead of insane odds and one-in-a-billion chances aligning, the explanation were something simpler? Like Steve seeing what he wants to see, and Natasha repaying favours in both directions.

    Summary

    Steve stares at his back, the terrible architecture of Bucky’s suffering written on the left shoulder and side. Reaches over and with fingertips brushes each rung along the ladder of his spine.

    Holding On to You Holding On to Me | gwenyth rhys

    Excellent short fic with a realistically broken Bucky and Steve, trying to make their jagged edges match up again - and finding that, against hope, they do. Lots of gorgeous unspoken emotion and caution, and a fraught but beautiful reunion.

    Poison series by Ginnybag
    [Poison One -Beginnings + Poison Two - L2 + Poison 3 - Season of Goodwill + Poison 4 - Age of Consent + Poison 5 - Shell Games]

    Gorgeous close-to-canon Treize/Zechs fic, the way I have always dreamt of seeing it done! Not complete, but impressive already and hopefully with much more to come!
