    Summary

    There’s a point in his life when Yuuri wants – his eyes wide on the television screen as Viktor Nikiforov sweeps across the ice with his silvery hair and blue eyes that threatened to swallow the world.

    He swallows Yuuri’s world, becomes it, and his obsession leads him stumbling onto the ice with determination set in his chubby face.

    -

    Yuuri wonders when it is that he stopped caring.

    -

    Or: sometimes all that's needed to change the fate of the skating world is a hand reaching out and Yuuri finds his redemption first in dark blue eyes and then icy blue after losing everything.

    Summary

    Victor smiles and opens his mouth to give a kind comment, but “A commemorative photo?” is what falls out, the English phrase well-worn on his tongue.

    Katsuki’s face goes blank, and Victor should stop, but he started down this path and he follows the ritual through automatically – he turns, one hand coming up in invitation. “Sure!”

    This time, Katsuki’s reaction is strong enough to break through his impassive mask – his eyes widen and hurt washes over his face. Then a spark of resolve flashes through his eyes, Katsuki’s chin coming up sharply, determinedly, and Victor feels the bottom fall out of his stomach because he recognizes that expression.

    It’s the same look Victor has seen in his soulmate’s eyes, during a soulmate flash; a look that strikes Victor deep in the heart with its intensity.

     
    (Canon-based soulmate AU, in which soulmates experience signs, visions or sensory flashes about their partner. Victor and Yuuri are soulmates but neither of them realizes it until their paths cross at the Sochi Grand Prix Final.

    Victor gets a clue. Yuuri, not so much. But fate has a way of bringing its destined pairs together, even if the road getting there is a convoluted one).

    Summary

    Viktor knocks, and everything suddenly stops, as if holding its breath. At his second knock, the door opens into golden warmth. The ceiling seems to vault into the heavens above, while an intricate tile floor sweeps out before him into an elegant marble staircase. And at the top of the staircase stands a young man, resplendent in crimson, his dark hair slicked back and topaz eyes sparkling enigmatically.

    “You must be so tired, traveller,” he purrs, his voice like honey and wine. Viktor steps forward, entranced.

    Written for Eros: A Yuuri Zine in collaboration with Aria.

    Summary

    Yuuri has it all. A great job that he loves, an amazing wife, and they're even contemplating having children. Until the day he finds out that it's all a lie.

    He doesn't confront his cheating spouse -- he needs to understand first. And while he could hire someone (probably should hire someone) he can't bear the idea of some stranger learning about his failings as a husband. So he does his own digging, and finds out that the Other Man has a partner of his own. A sweet, romantic, super hot partner. Who doesn't know what his fiance has been up to. Contacting this "Victor" person is probably a terrible idea.

    Agreeing to meet with Victor and form a friendship? Even worse.

    But falling in love? For real this time? Maybe it all will be worth it.
