    Summary

    Rash of Shibuya Graffiti Spurs City Action
    by Nakazawa Juichi
    The appearance of yet another new Eros work on a Shibuya corner has sparked further cries for administrative action from the public. The growing number of graffiti pieces signed by the faceless artist--most of which are viewed by conservative Tokyo citizens as crude and politically-charged public disturbances--have prompted demands for acknowledgement in Shinjuku, where the assembly of Tokyo’s metropolitan government may have power to limit the graffiti works.

    -
    Katsuki Yuuri is twenty-four, and the assistant art curator of Hasetsu Art Center in Tokyo (among other things). Viktor Nikiforov is losing his artistic touch as well as his hometown favor, and Tokyo is a wonderful place to seek out new inspiration.

    Summary

    "Arriving at each new city, the traveller finds again a past of his that he did not know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places.”

     

     

    Victor Nikiforov has traveled far and wide in the company of trader Christophe Giacometti on the silk roads to arrive at Hasetsu, capital of the Great Nihon Empire. He expects to stay a winter, until the seasons change again, and fairer weather and the changing of seasons can return him to his wanderlust.

    He does not expect to fall in love with the Crown Prince.

    Summary

    The candles flicker in the darkness of the cathedral, and Yuuri whispers: “You know it’s not right. That we can’t –”

    The medal of St. John the Beloved around Viktor’s neck has never felt more like a shackle. Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.

    OR

    Viktor is on his way to ordination. Yuuri is a novice Jesuit, devoted to music and to his order. They love God with all their heart, all their strength, and with all their mind.

    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

    "He's so beautiful, Chris," he says it almost like a prayer. "He's beautiful and I was a fool, and I wish I didn't have to feel so guilty about loving him."

    The understanding that dawns in Chistophe's eyes is at once a relief and a heartache.

    "Oh, Victor," he says, and the smile he gives him is the smallest and saddest Victor has ever seen him give.

    (Or, alternatively: Victor ties himself into a knot known as Katsuki Yuuri—in more ways than one—and they navigate their way to each other in a series of fits and starts, miscommunication, and Herculean pining.)
