    Summary

    He was always going to leave, Yuuri reminds himself. Victor just stayed longer than Yuuri thought he would, and he'd - stupidly - gotten his hopes up and is just getting the reality check he needs.

    He brushes his thumbs over the back of Victor's hands, unable to face that look burning in his blue eyes, and smiles.

    "I think a break would be good," he murmurs, quiet.

     

    Or; There's a bit of a misunderstanding.

    Summary

    For some inexplicable reason, Yuuri speaks Russian.

    Now, as everyone knows, there are only two viable reasons why anyone ever learns a foreign language:

    1. For school.

    2. To impress a foreign love interest.

    And Victor can’t quite bring himself to believe that Yuuri would be at all studious enough to hunt down Russian classes in Detroit of all places.

    (Or: Victor gets jealous of a boyfriend that doesn’t exist.)

    Summary

    Victor learns language through mimicry, hears phrases and repeats them back until the inflection becomes second nature. Yuuri seems to communicate best through euphemism, through metaphor, through talking around the subject rather than approaching it head on, and so Victor tries his best to mimic him, to take his words and echo them back.

    (Vignettes in language learning and communication, spanning the whole series.)
