    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

    It’s rainy season in D.C. and as the end of his summer internship at Cialdini Co approaches, Yuuri’s life is thrown off balance when his lifelong idol, Senator Victor Nikiforov tracks him down and offers him a job as his Personal Assistant.

    Senator Nikiforov, the powerhouse of congress who hates the media, loves his constituents, takes a seemingly random interest in Yuuri, and carries his heart on his sleeve… How can Yuuri possibly deny him?

    It’s not like it could break into a scandal, right?

    Summary

    "What was it like?" Yuuri asks. The scrape of his skates is slow and gentle on the ice, and Viktor looks up to watch him come near. He stops inches away, eyes fixed on the stands. "To be in front of thousands of people? To hear them shouting your name?"
    Viktor looks at him, this beautiful man he's somehow found on the other side of the world in a town that doesn't exist, and says, "It was marvelous."

    Viktor Nikiforov has neglected life and love for over seventy years. Fighting a losing battle with illness, he takes up residence in what is known as a twilight town. In a city on the sea built of dreams and memories, he meets another dying man.

    Summary

    As chief communications officer on board the Interstellar Alliance Fleet’s Star Ship Victory, Yuuri doesn’t have to think about who he actually is on his home planet. He just has to listen to his captain, do his job, and…not fall in love with his best friend, the ship’s science officer, Victor Nikiforov.

    Well. Two out of three’s not bad.

    Then his mother calls with the worst possible news: She, the Empress of New Nihon, has arranged Yuuri’s marriage.
    There’s only one thing Yuuri can do: Fake a boyfriend, and fake one fast. Who better/worse to play that role than the friend he wishes was more? What can go wrong? It’s not like Yuuri can fall more in love...
