    Summary

    Before Yuuri realizes what’s happening, he’s been kissed by Viktor Nikiforov.

    It’s a small kiss, but Viktor’s lips are soft and dry, brushing over his slow enough that he can feel the tingle of it for minutes afterwards.

    It was a kiss, and-

    If Yuuri wins, he can ask for another.

    Maybe more than one, even.

    (Maybe he’ll ask for as many kisses as there are stars in the universe.)

    Summary

    The line is silent for a moment, as Yuuri stands there, fingers getting progressively colder as he hears Minako breathe in his ear, not really willing to hang up first.

    “The Grand Prix is just around the corner,” Minako says, her tone almost wistful.

    He breathes out slowly to steady himself. “It is.”

    “… Are you going to watch it?”

    Yuuri shouldn’t. He knows it’ll feel awful to watch everyone he knows trying their best at something he loves when he can’t anymore. But it’s Phichit’s first year in the Grand Prix, and Victor’s competing, so…

    “Of course,” he says, and is proud of how steady his voice comes out. He doesn’t know if it’s a lie or not.

    (Or: in which Yuuri's Stammi Vicino skate never gets posted and he retires, Victor keeps himself skating for better or for worse, Yuri struggles with his debut, and missed opportunities have a way of righting themselves.)

    Summary

    Katsuki Yuuri is a prince of Ouyashima, an island nation governed by a clan of nine-tailed foxes. Even though he's royal, soft-spoken Yuuri is either ordered around or coldly ignored by the true power-players of courtly life. He finds solace in the stories that arrive from overseas: tales of bravery, cleverness, and ambition--and especially the stories of Viktor Nikiforov, the marauding Crown Prince of Kiyev.

    But Yuuri is dissatisfied with his status, and the powers-that-be are impatient to see him married off. When Yuuri's solace abruptly becomes his reality, he's tossed into a political drama of peril, courtly struggle, and romance that will challenge his resolve and test his bravery.

    A tale of love and trust between two princes: one of smokeless fire; the other of ice and solitude.

    Summary

    “I have to tell you—tell you something. It’s important.”

    “Tell me, then.”

    Yuuri leans in so close that their noses are touching. Oh, god, Viktor thinks, oh, god, this is not a drill.

    “If Slytherin beats Ravenclaw,” he asks, voice soft, “will you be my boyfriend?”

    +

    In which Yuuri is a Quidditch prodigy and Viktor is a nerd who wears beet earrings.

    Summary

    As he rounds the corner to the front of Puji Shrine, he's taken aback to see Nan Feng standing outside the shrine's open door with his sword drawn. "Nan Feng?" he calls, and Nan Feng jumps.

    "Oh!" he says, recognizing Xie Lian. "There you are! Your highness, you shouldn't enter — there's a demon inside!"

    Xie Lian frowns at him. "I'm aware," he says. "He stayed the night."

    --

    Xie Lian and Hua Cheng talk things out a little.
