    Bookmarker's Notes

    Look, I ship pretty much every romantic/platonic/other combination of Robins, /especially/ when it's the Dead Robins Club. This is my jam, this is wonderfully written and the characters are on point. Great stuff all around.

    Summary

    ‘…Of all the rivalries in the world of sports over the years, perhaps none has become so legendary as that of Russian figure skater Viktor Nikiforov and his rival, Japanese Yuuri Katsuki…’

     
    A single event changes the course of Yuuri’s life, throwing him into a bitter rivalry with Viktor Nikiforov that spans across his entire skating career. But as the years go on, rivalry and hatred begin to develop into something very different and Yuuri doesn’t seem to be able to stay away, no matter how hard he tries.

    Hatred and love are two sides of the same coin and even though everything changes, some things are still meant to be.

    Summary

    "I know you will never want to speak to me again. I know you will never see me again. And I'm sorry.

    I'm sorry because I very much think I love you. And now I've ruined everything."

    Five moments in the love story—a phrase which here means "a tumultuous affair including quite a lot of hate, self-doubt, tragedy, and mistakes"—of a firestarter and the phoenix who rose from the ashes that he left behind.

    There's just something about the atmosphere of this fic, a mix of nostalgia, resentment and intimacy that /gets/ me.
