    Summary

    Victor had never worked this hard before, and especially he had never done so knowing that despite it all, it wasn’t possible to win. He tried to imagine going through this struggle as a child, and couldn’t quite convince himself that he could have kept skating through it before he’d ever tasted the peace of a clean program.

    He tried to tell Yuuri all this, asked him how he had kept on for so long without feeling what it was like to win.

    Yuuri laughed. “Maybe I couldn’t feel it,” he said. “But I saw it, when I watched you.”

    Victor stood, dumbstruck. He knew then and there that his skating, his loneliness at the top, his whole life had been worthwhile, if it had kept this beautiful creature on the ice.

    ***

    After the Grand Prix Final, Victor struggles back into skating and settles into his life with Yuuri.

    Summary

    “Wizard Howl,” Ben says dryly, coming to shake his hand, “I must apologize for my earlier behavior. Normally I wouldn't dream of sinking my teeth into a fellow countryman.”

    Howl can see it in Ben’s eyes; the image of Ben’s teethmarks, perfect and circled, on Howl’s neck, which he tenderly covered with concealer the next morning before Howl had to give a lecture on T. S. Eliot to a room of first-years. Another lifetime.
