    Summary

    The year is 1942, and Europe is at war. Captain Victor Nikiforov, an intelligence operative for the NKVD, has been trapped in Berlin by the German invasion of the USSR. Posing as a Nazi industrialist, his days are spent charming information out of Axis diplomats to try and keep the Red Army fighting another day.

    Yuuri Katsuki, a foreign-educated bureaucrat in the Japanese Embassy, has secrets of his own concealed beneath his unremarkable demeanour. When he uncovers Victor’s real identity, it will alter the course of both of their lives forever.

    Blackbird is a fandom classic for a reason. it's tightly plotted, incredibly vivid in its setting, and the characterization is incredible. It really feels like our beloved characters, if they had grown up and blooded during World War 2. Also chock full with: falling head-over-heels in love, spies!, action and domesticity, spy dancers!, hurt and comfort, just the right amount of angst, reunions, and a massively satisfying ending.

    Summary

    For a thousand years, bound beneath these waves, I have watched you…” the voice continued, the presence suddenly shifting behind Viktor and making the hairs at the base of his skull shiver and rise. He spun again, the water resisting and making his movements sluggish. He thought he caught the glimpse of something dark and slippery slither back into the shadows, but it was gone before he could make sense of it.

    I have tasted your essence…” the voice crooned, distinctly human as it seemed to take on some sort of shape. It was a masculine voice, tinged with self-confidence and allure, layered over itself like a thousand whispers. Viktor narrowed his eyes as he tried to peer into the darkness...

    A sudden, animalistic urge to run seized him as the figure floated closer, as fear snaked into his heart. But pride demanded he remain still. And something else burned low in his abdomen, tempting him to stay…

    A pair of familiar red eyes rolled open in the darkness.

    “You?” Viktor whispered.

    What is the upper limit of a fic's ability for being in-character and hot and adorable? It's this story. A+ on all fronts.

    Summary

    "He forgot about me," Yuuri stutters, mouth fumbling with strange words. Yuri looks at him with wide eyes, and Yuuri repeats himself, even though the second time doesn't make Yuuri understand the words more. "He forgot me."
