    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

    "That's-- You get that I don't want this, right? It doesn't matter that it's you. It could be anyone, and I wouldn't want it." Kazuya drives down the exit ramp, emerging out into the center of Tokyo, not far from the Diet Building. The streets are already aglow in the falling dusk. "It doesn't help that you play, though. It makes it a bigger issue."

    "Bonds are a gift," Sawamura replies, like an after school special, and he's turned to look directly at Kazuya again for the first time in a while. "How can you not want it?"

    Summary

    Yamaguchi was far less nervous in practice than any games, and he’d gotten far more skilled at serving in a few short months, so Tsukishima was utterly unprepared for the feeling of a volleyball slamming into the back of his head.

    There was a beat of silence.

    The ball had enough of an angle to bounce off his head and over to the other side of the net, landing neatly in front of a stunned Sugawara.

     

    (( or: Ennoshita plots for the future, Suga wants to mess around and is intent on dragging everyone down to his level, Noya tries to become a spiker, Kiyoko is a good senpai, Yamaguchi cries, and Tsukishima wonders if he's been dropped off in the Twilight Zone without his notice ))

    Summary

    “Do you think that’s progress?” Akaashi asks. He can’t help the dubious note in his voice.

    “They get so caught up in each other that they forget everyone else,” Kenma points out, without bothering to look up. Just continues tap tap tapping on his PSP. “Not that they realise.”

    “I suppose not,” Akaashi says, after a moment. He glances over at Kenma. “This is turning out harder than we thought.”

    There's an odd tension between Bokuto and Kuroo, one that everyone seems to be able to pick up on. Everyone of course, except for themselves.
