what if he never did? what if yuuri grew up to be a pro ballet dancer, best in japan, known for the way he dances like he’s floating on the stage
he catches the eye of pro figure skater victor nikiforov, who travels to japan and asks yuuri to teach him how to move like that.
so yuuri and victor train everyday, and yuuri makes him stay on barre and has to adjust victor’s poses and victor goes to all of yuuri’s performances and brings him flowers and yuuri goes to all of victor’s competitions and victor brags to everyone about his prima ballerina boyfriend
bonus: victor in pointe shoes, wobbling like the first time he ever skated
Mamoru really took Yuri’s words by heart. He was so close winning ten medals but then Milo had his senior debut and snatched away all the golds since. It’s been two years and the poor kid hasn’t won the last three golds that separates him from dating the love of his dreams
(ps. otayuri has had another children in the meantime: a lil flower called lilia, just like yuri’s ballet teacher)
Hey :) I was wondering if you had any ballet fics or parent teacher fics? I love your recommendations :D
Thank you for these requests! I love this AU!
Adagio by Envys_Majesty_999, Mature, 13k (WIP) As promised, Viktor choreographs a short program for Yuri’s senior debut. However, when Yuri just doesn’t seem to get the meaning of Agape, Yakov enlists the help of Lilia, who brings with her, her prodigy student, who Viktor can’t take his eyes off. Thumbs up!
premier dans mon coeur by aphhun, Teen, 16k (WIP) That ballet AU where Yuuri never started skating, but kept dancing instead and becomes Lilia’s premier danseur and assistant when she comes to train Yuri for his senior debut, and Viktor falls in love. OMG SO GOOD
premier by bixgchan, Teen, 1.4k Viktor meets Yuuri, the adorable premier danseur who would teach Yurio ballet. LOVE!
From A Random Playing Card by Noitratoxin, Gen, 12k (WIP) In training premier danseur, Katsuki Yuuri, under the guidance of Lilia Baranovskaya was asked to train the new generation of Russian figure skaters in ballet. Yuuri wasn’t sure if this was healthy for his sanity. Great fic!
wannabe rockstars and prima ballerinas by thehearsesong, Teen, 6.2k (WIP) AU in which yuuri and viktor both attend Columbia College in Chicago. Viktor is a music major and in a band and Yuuri is a ballerina studying at the Joffrey Ballet Academy as well as majoring in dance at Columbia. Dancer and college AU!
Saudade by AdvisedPanic, Teen, 6.6k After an injury at the GPS that prevents his 5th consecutive win, Victor vows to return to skating to reclaim his title. Katsuki Yuuri is a ballet danseur who suffered a similar injury years before and made a successful comeback. Highly recommend!
Yuuri in “La Sylphide” by WeirdoPsychoFangirl, Teen, 5.3k (WIP) Katsuki Yuuri is 24 years old and works as a ballet teacher and dancer at a ballet studio, which belongs to his friend Minako. One day as he walks nonchalantly through a park he meets a young man with a dog. They meet a few days in a row, but they always miss to ask for each others names. Definitely recommend!
in your eyes alone i found grace by lightwoodlover, Not Rated, 6.9k (WIP) The one in which Victor Nikiforov, five time world champion, is still more than a little lost on the ice and finds love and life in one Katsuki Yuuri, principal dancer with the Boston Ballet. Can’t wait to read more!
pick lilacs for the passing time by astralelegies, Teen, 48k (WIP) In which the outlandish prodigy Victor Nikiforov hits Yuuri’s life like a whirlwind after he transfers to a prestigious ballet conservatory in Moscow, two grumpy teenagers learn to be friends, and Mila’s Straight Girl CrushTM might not be so straight after all. I love how Mila/Sara is included in this!! That ship gives me life
Hilarion’s Last Wish by Methoxyethane, Gen, 3.2k Victor finally recognized that Yuuri hadn’t just started to dance without waiting for him. Yuuri had started to dance a pas de deux, performing half a dance with the expectation that Victor would catch up and join him, filling in the empty space Yuuri was leaving for him. OMG SO GOOD I’M SCREAMING
Pirouettes and Personal Bests by sintrovert, toosigoosi, Teen, 6.4k (WIP) Feeling old and uninspired, pro-skater Victor Nikiforov is on the brink of giving up skating for good, until he witnesses a young principal danseur for the Tokyo Ballet who moves like he’s floating on the stage. Love this!
Yuuri!!! En Pointe! by JanharaMeepWatson, Teen, 19k (WIP) At 26, Viktor Nikiforov is a 4 time world champion figure skater. At 22, Yuuri Katsuki is the rising star of the Boys Ballet Academy in Russia. In between competitions, Viktor takes a month off to visit his sister, and takes his nephew Peter to ballet class. There he meets Katsuki-Sensei, Peter’s ballet instructor. WOWOWOWOW!
Pas de Deux by OlderEcho, Teen, 6.1k (WIP) Katsuki Yuuri has managed to secure a spot in one the best Performing Arts Institutions in the entire world; The Castle Academy. He is finally going to have the chance to dance in the same ballet company as infamous principal dancer, Viktor Nikiforov (who is rumored to be in the last year of his own training). HOLY SMOKES THIS IS GREAT!
Fondue by BastetCG, elenathea, Teen, 29k (WIP) Male dancers are not supposed to dance en pointe. Yuuri knows that. Everyone knows that. But he can’t help but want to. He wants to be graceful and beautiful and float across the stage. And if he can find the confidence to explain that to Viktor, Viktor might just be able to help. Rec’d by a follower!
More AU ideas: Yuri had always been good at Ballet and classic dance thanks to his years of training but one day he meets Otabek, a lover of swing dance, who completely has him mesmerized by his quick and free movements. It looked easy enough that Yuri takes to the dance floor and ends up embarrassing himself thoroughly. He becomes so frustrated that he was unable to keep up with the fast pace rhythms of swing that he demands Otabek teach him this new way of dancing.
