    Summary

    They choose Yuuri in the early spring, just as the plum trees are beginning to bloom, just after another hard winter and three unbroken years of hunger. His sister’s jaw clenches, his father’s smile freezes, his mother’s calloused hands go limp. They do not protest.

    They say they chose him for his stature, for his bright eyes, for his quietness and kindness: more practically, for the fact that he has no family to support. They say they consulted the signs and portents, counted the days, checked the hour of his birth, and knew it must be him.

    The whispers go like this: they chose him for his standoffishness, his strangeness, because the Katsuki family have never been fishermen and do not understand the pain of losing a son to the sea.

    Summary

    It’s a miracle Viktor’s even agreed to taking this second chance. It’ll take an even bigger one for them to overcome what’s left ahead of them. Yuuri likes to think he’s brutally honest with himself, and what everything is telling him is that this is but the eye of a hurricane, a lull in the summer tempest. Viktor Nikiforov has been a force of nature in Yuuri’s life ever since their chance meeting at St Andrews, and Yuuri would be lying to himself if he said he isn’t jumping at the opportunity to reconquer him.

    A ship is safe when it lies at shore, but that is not what ships are for.

    Summary

    "He’s talented. He’s handsome. He’s sexy. He’s adorable.
    He’s a heartbreaker.
    It’s been only a few years since his transition from the Japanese film industry to Hollywood, but Yuuri Katsuki’s long list of “starbucks lovers” is starting to rival that of Miss Swift herself."

    A playboy comes to Tinseltown and bewitches men and women left and right. When he decides to pursue the most beautiful man in town, he is easily swayed.
    And Victor Nikiforov, Hollywood's Golden Boy, doesn't realize which part is his in the story.
