    Summary

    First, Victor looks.

    He's a photographer after all, look is what he does. Besides, beautiful things are meant to be looked at, and what could be more beautiful than Yuuri Katsuki?

    But when Victor listens, touches, and opens his eyes not to look but to see, he realizes that just looking at Yuuri is missing the point.

    Summary

    Yuuri never goes to Detroit. He gets an offer to train with Yakov Feltsman in St. Petersburg and takes that, instead. He's about to enter the Senior division and his idol, Victor Nikiforov, is in his prime, at the apex of his spectacular winning streak.

    It's the opportunity of a lifetime. More good fortune than Yuuri thinks he deserves... until he actually arrives in Russia. He's cold and lonely, fighting for scraps of attention from his coach, and he felt closer to Victor when they were continents apart.

    Summary

    Victor can’t remember the last time he talked to Yuuri. It seems crazy that someone that’s been so monumentally important to Victor just slid out of his life and he barely noticed. They grew up together in this courtyard, played in the sand and rode the slide. They went to school together, walking each day side by side the five blocks to elementary school, rode their bikes together when they started junior high. They spent countless hours in each others rooms, playing video games or just talking. They shared secrets, dreams and fears while sitting on those swings, and whenever Yuuri was sad or overthinking, Victor could always find him on top of the slide, face tipped to the sky. No matter the weather, this is where he always sat.

    It’s where Victor finds him now.

    or. Victor and Yuuri grows up as neighbours, pining for each other until they separate for college. A decade passes until they meet again.

    Summary

    It’s about two in the morning when Victor comes to terms with the fact that he is a jackass. A jackass with a credit card in one hand, his cell phone in the other, and the front page of a phone sex line open on his laptop.
