I’m Proud of You
This is my first Yuri!!! On Ice fanfic, so please be nice to me! It’s difficult to write fanfiction when the anime hasn’t been released yet. I’m mostly imagining how the characters would react and what personality they have.
I was inspired by an idea @sephora-on-ice had while we were making theories. Basically, what would happen if Viktor gets injured in the final? And then this happened. I also want to thank her for her invaluable help while editing.
Also: I suck at summaries. I’m sorry. And I used a couple of specific figure-skating-related words. Here’s hoping people know them.
Pair: Yuuri Katsuki x Viktor Nikiforov
1785 words, 1 chapter
Summary: Yuuri Katsuki wins the Grand Prix Final after Viktor got injured during the Short Program. Now that he has the gold medal in his hands, he remembers the way he dealt with the news of Viktor’s injury.
Warnings: no warnings, there is nothing explicit.
The gold medal was heavy against his hands as he held it, reminding him of the arduous path he had walked to achieve it. Every doubt, every tear, every fall, every injury, but also every smile. Winning that medal had been so painful that it took Yuuri a couple of minutes to process the fact that it was his medal now. He had won it with hard work and he should be proud of it.
And yet, he could only remember the one person he felt was the true winner of that medal. His idol, his guide, his friend, his… there was no words to describe the relationship they had built in the last months.
