    Summary

    "Is this because I let you watch American movies as a child," says Yakov flatly. "The ones where the popular boy gives his coat to the pretty girl?"

    Victor puts up both eyebrows in a delicately mocking gesture that was unbearable when he was a fey creature of sixteen and makes Yakov yearn to clip him around the ears now, when he's twenty-eight. "'Let' me?" he says.

    Summary

    They walk back to the hotel once Yuuri has changed back into regular clothes and does his second round of interviews. He’s still quiet, but his eyes are burning instead of sparkling. He still holds Victor’s hand, but he walks half a step ahead of him, and Victor lets himself be led. There are a couple other skaters around - some stayed to shower, but most have been gone for half an hour or more - but Yuuri pays no attention to them. His gaze is on the building they’re staying at, and he barely says a word until they get there and then, when the elevator doors close, he hits the button for their floor and then shoves Victor against the wall.
    “Oh,” Victor says.

     

    The aftermath of Yuuri's Four Continents skate.

    Summary

    There is never any sneaking around in the dimly lit corridors of ship’s night, or discreet Vulcan kisses in the nooks of engineering.
    Unless Jim is incredibly tired, or stressed, there are no lingering looks on the bridge, either.
    The stakes are far too high.
     
    OR

    Admitting to each other that they are in love is not an issue. The problem is revealing it to everyone else.
    This is how Jim and Spock’s relationship would be if Starfleet actually enforced fraternization regulations.
