    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.

    Summary

    Yuuri undoubtedly has a praise kink. He lives for Victor's compliments on the ice, and Victor knows that when he calls him “good boy” in bed he'll lose his breath, clutching at whatever's nearest to ride out the ice-hot rush of blood that travels up his core.

    But this... is not a button he knew he had.

    ***
    The revelation that sometimes, a bit of pain can be a useful outlet in a relationship that is not—and never has been—professional.

    Summary

    Victor's thumb pressed a little harder against Yuuri's lower lip, and then he slipped the plush leather delicately into his mouth to swipe it over the tip of his tongue.

    PWP with lots of glove kink and lingerie.
