    Summary

    When pair skater Yuuri Katsuki’s career comes to a scandalous end, he does not expect the retired pair skating legend Viktor Nikiforov to suggest that they compete together. But taking on a new skating partner is full of trial and error, and the skating world doesn’t know how to react when the Katsuki-Nikiforov duo, against all odds, starts doing well. The last thing either of them should do, as they strive for their last chance at greatness, is to fall in love. Yuuri knows he is damaged goods, and Viktor knows his body is starting to fail him. They have competitions to survive and medals to win. No, falling in love is out of the question; they’re just very good friends. And even if Viktor felt something, he’d never act on it, and even if Yuuri happened to be hopelessly in love, he’d be mortified if Viktor ever found out.

    “Well,” Viktor said, “let’s summarise: I’m pushing thirty, have a bad ankle, and haven’t skated competitively in three years. You’re barely out of a doping scandal, coachless, and on the JSF’s blacklist. Hell, Yuuri – we might as well go for it, then. What on earth do we have to lose?”

    When Viktor put it like that, it seemed to make an awful lot of sense.

    So when your hope's on fire,
    But you know your desire
    Don't hold the glass over the flame
    Don't let your heart grow cold

    Summary

    Was Viktor Nikiforov sleeping in the armchair in Yuuri’s room?

    This was still no reason to panic. There had to be an explanation. Yuuri looked at the man again. Maybe, the man was a mirage – no, that wouldn’t make any sense. Maybe, he was a hallucination. Yes, a hallucination, that would make sense. Yuuri had never hallucinated before, he didn’t think, but that was the only possible explanation for anyone who looked remotely like Viktor Nikiforov to be in his room.

    -or- The morning after the Grand Prix Final banquet in Sochi, panic ensues.
