Hey, Ash! Thanks so much for shooting me an ask! I had so much fun writing it! I hope I get some more of these :3
“The first week is always the hardest. Just give it time, Vitya. He will come around, just be patient.”
This was the advice that Yakov had given Viktor when he had announced Yuuri was moving in after the Grand Prix Final. After Yuuri’s small victory at the finals, they agreed it would be best to stay with Viktor in Russia, so that they could perfect Yuuri’s routine. Not only that, Viktor would also benefit from Yuuri’s support when he was relearning his old skating regiment. As soon as the decision was final, Viktor had insisted that Yuuri move in right away. He couldn’t bare being away from Yuuri for so long. However, Yuuri wanted to spend some time with his family and close friends before he made such a big step in both of their lives. So, Viktor had waited patiently for weeks until the day Yuuri would move into his home. It was during this time that Yakov gave him the strange advice. Little did Viktor know, he would actually need it in the very near future.
It was one A.M. and Yuuri was up. Normally, having Yuuri awake wouldn’t bother Viktor. However, this was the fourth night in a row that Yuuri had been up in strange hours of the night. It was a sort of pattern really. Viktor would wake up early in the morning trying to get the most out of the day, Yuuri, on the other hand, had a strange sleeping schedule. Yuuri would fall asleep around four or five in the afternoon and get back up around midnight. It didn’t make any sense to Viktor, but he tried his best to be understanding.
A bright light filled Viktor’s vision and he opened his eyes only slightly. Outside his bedroom door, the hall light was on and Viktor could make out the distinct shadows of Yuuri tiptoeing down the hall. Although Viktor appreciated the courtesy, he couldn’t sleep like this. Viktor had spent the past few weeks sleeping with Yuuri cuddled with him. Now that he was by himself, he felt utterly naked and unnatural. It bothered him to no end!
He groaned and pushed himself up wrapping his blue colored blanket around his body. He was quite the sight. His usual combed and styled hair was now into an upheaved mess. His bangs clung to his forehead, and he had black bags under his eyes. If Yuuri only came to bed, he would be able to sleep.
He opened his bedroom door and squinted at the bright light of the television as his eyes adjusted. He looked over at the couch and saw Yuuri watching a video he must have taken from home. It was all in Japanese. Viktor could only pull out a few keywords from what looked like a romantic comedy. His beloved Makkachin was cuddled under Yuuri’s feet, snoring softly. Viktor never wanted to be a dog more in his life.
He took a step forward and tripped on a dog bone causing him to fall forward. Yuuri jumped and quickly turned towards the sound that surprised him. All he saw was an exhausted Viktor wrapped in a blanket like a child who had a bad dream. He gave Viktor a sorry look.
“Viktor, what are you doing up so late? ” He asked.
“I could ask you the same thing.” There was a moment of silence before Viktor chewed his lip. It was a nervous tic that Viktor had since he was a child. "Why don’t you sleep in bed with me? I’m sorry if I made you upset or hogged the blankets. I can make Makka sleep in the hall or-“
Yuuri smiled at him and grabbed his hands, interrupting Viktor’s long train of thought as of why Yuuri wasn’t sleeping with him. "You didn’t make me upset, Viktor. I just can’t sleep. If I would have known it affected you this much, I would have gone on my phone and let you sleep.” He scooted over on the couch and patted one of the cushions next to him. "Come here. You need to sleep.“
Viktor smiled tiredly and sat down next to Yuuri. He leaned into Yuuri’s open arms and nuzzled into Yuuri’s chest. He could hear Yuuri’s heartbeat in one ear and the soft hum of movie in the other. Makkachin’s soft snores slowly joined into the beautiful melody filling Viktor’s ears and lulling him to sleep. Yuuri’s arm tightened against his shoulder and a kiss was planted on his forehead with the softness of a butterfly’s wing. Viktor wrapped his arms around Yuuri’s chest and smiled. There was just something so domestic about the scene that made Viktor yearn for more. Eventually, he wanted to start a family with Yuuri. He would give anything, all the skating, all his medals, all the fame, just to settle down with Yuuri and spend the rest of his life with him by Viktor’s side. But, for now, Viktor wouldn’t change a thing. He burrowed his face in Yuuri’s chest.
“I thought you hated me. ” he murmured softly.
Yuuri chuckled. Viktor swore his voice was made of honey itself. It was so thick and sweet. "I don’t think I could hate you if I tried. “
“Then, why didn’t you sleep with me? ”
Yuuri gave him a surprised look and adjusted his glasses like he was embarrassed. “Viktor, you do know that there is a six hour time difference between Saint Petersburg and Kyushu, right? ”
Viktor could only smile like an idiot. He really had no idea.
Had an early morning dance practise (which isn’t as fun as it sounds) and then studied for 4 hours straight.
I just baked a snack to eat when I get home from school ( I’ll write about it later) and now I’m gonna get dressed for school.
This was from a well deserved Sunday Brunch a few weeks ago. Sometimes you just gotta post up next to the Marina, eat some bacon and split a bottle of champagne with your Best friend. This obviously was a very enjoyable morning but unfortunately by body isn’t down with it every day so we have to find ways to enjoy the morning, EVERY MORNING!
We all know we can tell our body feels a certain way as soon
as we gain enough consciousness in the am. If I ate pizza at 2:00am compared to
having a lean dinner at 8:00 pm, I can feel the difference in my stomach as
soon as I roll over. If I wash my face before I go to bed I can wake up and
enjoy the 30 second eye rub compared to not washing my face and waking up to a
heavy oily setting while I lay there and wonder how much mascara I got all over
my pillows. Not Fun. Then your eyes are all swollen and shitty looking and you
can bet that you’ve got about T-minus 2 days until that acne kicks in.
Literally like a meteor, and there’s no way to avoid it now.
Have you ever
heard the phrase, “When you drink tonight, you are borrowing happiness from
tomorrow?” Little corny but true. I think some of us are at a point that we’re
borrowing happiness from next month.But your mood for tomorrow is generally
set by how you feel in the morning and it’s determined not only by if you drank
the night before or not but if you overall took care of yourself.
Did you eat well? Did you brush your teeth and wash your
face? Did you take a second to think about what you have going on the following
day so you are prepared? Did you get at least 6 hours of sleep? Did you drink
enough water the day before or are you waking up with your fingers swollen on
to your rings?
Do you have a morning routine or do you wake up and watch 73
videos on your phone then go back to bed because you can’t think of anything to
Personally, I get up, make my bed, clean up my house, throw
some clothes on and go to a café to wake up and see what I have going on that
So if you want to get moving a little bit and actually not
want to kill yourself by 9:00 am, then try a few (or all) of these tips and
notice the difference in your energy and mood every day !
- Drink water through out the day ( at least 4 16 oz
- Wash your face/ brush your teeth – it catches up to you
not only tomorrow but in the long run if you don’t.
- Make sure your room is as dark as it can be when you go to
sleep so you don’t interrupt any of that glorious shut eye.
- Don’t eat after 8:00 pm
- Make your last meal of the day some veggies and protein
because there is hardly any sodium. (No late night Chinese meals. That salt is
gunna stick to you like white on rice)
- Work out for at least 30 minutes at some point during the
day. You’ll sleep better.
- Have a general idea of some things that you want to get
done the following day so you have motivation and a sense of urgency to get up.
- Whatever your alcohol intake is right now, cut it in half.
Do it for yourself!! You’re the only one that can :)
Early Bird and Night Owl and El Lover Boy!!! with some of their fanboys ;0
I drew Evan first before I thought ahead and that’s kinda why he looks out of place, but I’m just going to say that he maintains a level of professionalism while he takes photos like this and that is all
