    Summary

    Blades hissing against ice, beating a steady rhythm to the echoing Vivaldi track. The arena lights dancing off of pink sequinned fabric. The blur of Alexis skating past him. The rush of air in her wake. His thundering heart calmed by the composure on her face, and the twitch in his eyebrows, making sure his expression matched.

    This was David’s world. It was what he knew best.

    This was their final practice for the 2021 Canadian Championships, which, if they won, would mean their third national title: the final step to make their Olympic dreams come true. David wasn’t even thinking as he let his body fall into the grooves of the routine, practiced a thousand times. All they had left to go was one simultaneous double-axel, then a lift, and finally their signature move. Like clockwork, at this part David’s palms would start to sweat in anticipation. Not like, a disgusting amount, but a normal, totally reasonable amount for the amount of pressure they were under.

    --

    David and Alexis are Canada's golden figure skating duo. When their Olympic dreams are unexpectedly halted, they have to pick up the pieces, fall apart, and grow together, and maybe find love along the way.

    Summary

    Left at the hospital, injured and penniless, Clint tries to find his way to another circus, or some other means of supporting himself, but makes a few decisions that end up costing him. He's pretty much given up on ever making something of his life when he's in the wrong place at the wrong time, witness to an assassination. As it turns out, that's the best luck he's had in years. (Alternately, for those of you who know what this refers to: the obligatory hooker AU.)
