    Summary

    Victor Nikiforov is the Capitol's darling, the Living Legend who's survived the Games twice. He plays the role well, but mentoring District Ten's tributes year after year is beginning to wear on him in ways he could never have imagined as the terrified sixteen-year-old winner of the 66th Hunger Games.

    When Yuri Plisetsky volunteers as tribute, full of fire and fury and determined to win, Victor finds himself wanting to make sure Yuri doesn't die trying. Playing the Capitol's games win him no friends or favor, though, and Victor has to step carefully through a maze of political maneuvering to keep Yuri alive, which isn't easy when Yuri seems to loathe everything about him.

    A story of survival and finding companionship in even the darkest hours, Victor will have to overcome the terrible specter of his past if he wants to help Yuri survive his future.

    With art by Gen (mild spoilers)

    Summary

    "What was it like?" Yuuri asks. The scrape of his skates is slow and gentle on the ice, and Viktor looks up to watch him come near. He stops inches away, eyes fixed on the stands. "To be in front of thousands of people? To hear them shouting your name?"
    Viktor looks at him, this beautiful man he's somehow found on the other side of the world in a town that doesn't exist, and says, "It was marvelous."

    Viktor Nikiforov has neglected life and love for over seventy years. Fighting a losing battle with illness, he takes up residence in what is known as a twilight town. In a city on the sea built of dreams and memories, he meets another dying man.

    Summary

    Chris washes his hands, presses his palms into his eyes briefly, then presses out a couple of imaginary wrinkles in his track jacket. He turns away from the sink and makes to leave the bathroom, but he stops right beside Phichit. Their jackets aren’t brushing, but only just. “You have to advance to the Grand Prix,” he says, and he sounds mostly like himself, mostly like everything is completely okay. “It’ll be my last one.”

    “Who else knows?” Phichit asks quietly. He can’t look Chris in the face.

    “Nobody.”

    And then Chris is gone, and the bathroom door is slowly swinging closed, and Phichit is alone. He walks up to the sink Chris had stood over, and looks down. There’s one lone, vivid yellow petal still in the basin. Phichit hates it.
