Stay Close to Me by Teabunny, Mature, 16k (WIP) Throughout the years, Viktor held that tiny hand like a lifeline, coaxing Yuri through infancy and adolescence, both on and off the ice. The sound of skates scraping that cold surface was likely Yuri’s first cognizant memory. Thumbs up!

Lessons in Love by fangirlandiknowit, Mature, 21k (WIP) All Viktor wants is for his son to be happy - and if that means spending countless hours at the ice rink, a million more in the ballet studio, and devotedly cheering for Katsuki Yuuri at every competition he enters, then that is precisely what he’ll do. He just didn’t expect to become a fan, too. Fabulous fic! Highly recommend!

Here’s the whole cast- didn’t do any of the other characters for this line-up and don’t plan to. I feel like it’s borderline spammish to post them altogether after I already posted them separately as I made them- but feh- it’s nice seeing them all together!!
kindergarten au where lil atem has such a huge crush on his teacher he can hardly function around yugi half the time, seto is jealous for both of their attention so he picks fights with atem cause he's his age, jou started out as a bully but got better with time and has been friends with honda since they were born, anzu is related to yugi so knows him the longest, ryou is the shy exchange student that everyone things is adorable but gets creeped out cause he likes gross stuff.

principal sugoroku coming in to check on things and laughing to himself about how popular yugi is with the kids.
seto coming to school one day really quiet bc he’s panicking inside - mama is pregnant with his new little sibling and he doesn’t know what to do. of course his teacher and “rivals” notice and try to cheer him up somehow (by challenging him to games/making sure he gets an extra cookie and a little sit down to talk with yugi before the end of the day)

After the death of Viktor’s sister, he decides to take in her five year old, Yuri who’s headstrong and dislikes him for no particular reason. Through the journey of learning how to become a father, Viktor is captured by the adorable beauty of Yuri’s kindergarten teacher, Yuuri Katsuki who seems to have a knack for children, skating and smiles- everything Viktor was searching for.
“Hold my son for a moment,” says the Viktor Nikiforov, live in the flesh, sweaty and panting. “Wha—” Yuuri can’t even begin to comprehend what’s going on before Viktor is gone, and there’s a child in his arms. (in which yuuri is a simple barista, viktor is a famous movie star, and yuri is an 8 year old kid stuck in the middle of it.)
Victor Nikiforov 5 times world champion stared impassively at his ceiling, Makkachin spread across his stomach. He absently patted the dog’s head as pondered about what he should do next after his recent win. He wanted something new, something people have yet to see about him. Surprise is something he is known for.However he had already won every competition there is, the grand prix, the Olympics, the Four Continents and the world championships…
A smile broke out of his face. Looks like there is still a stage he could surprise the world with. WORLD SYNCHRONIZED FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIP
Yuuri injures himself while trying to execute a move he was yet ready for, leading to recovery by means of resting. Yuuri panics, and ignores all advice by secretly practicing while Viktor returns to Russia for the holidays. Unable to train like before, he starves himself to not gain weight. Matters only get worse from there, and now his coach must become his saviour, before Viktor loses Yuuri to himself. Gen/Angst. Trigger Warning.
It has been more than two decades since winter has started. According to legends, only the most beautiful person in the village must be sacrificed to the God of Ice as his bride to appease his anger and end this eternal winter.
Victor Nikiforov, a highly esteemed operative of a criminal investigations agency, is assigned to the case of the mercenary by the name ‘Eros’. They’re notoriously elusive, hardly ever leaving a trace, only enough to identify it was them who was there. To pursue Eros’ real identity and actually apprehending them seems impossible. Viktor is already busy as it is, and now he has to chase a ghost story to an end he doesn’t see. He doesn’t expect this to be easy at all.
At least the ice skating instructor who works in the rink across the street is cute.
Yuuri stopped his wondering when the man reappeared at the rink-board, stepping onto the ice, his blades running smoothly over the cool surface. Then he took off at a leisurely pace, his movements fluid and surprisingly beautiful. He skated some rounds at that pace, changing now and then from skating forwards to skating backwards, and it looked so natural, so easy, like he’d never done anything else in his life, like he’d learned skating before walking.
At this point, Yuuri was already enraptured by this man even though he didn’t realize it right away.
– AU where Yuuri never started a career as a professional ice and figure skater and thus has absolutely no idea who Viktor is.
For the second time, the Sochi Grand Prix Finals arrive, and with it a reborn Yuuri Katsuki. “Viktor,” Yuuri thinks over the pounding of his heart, the crowd going silent as the music begins. “I’ll show the world what you meant to me.”
Yuuri often thinks of his life as Before and After Viktor Nikiforov, the marking point being the day Viktor swept into his life and turned his world upside-down. After many years together, an accident leads to Yuuri suddenly waking up in the Before—back in Detroit, before the GPF, before he ever knew Viktor as anything other than his childhood idol.
“The music swells around him, and he sees more than he hears as colors bloom to life around him, droplets of blue splashing across golden backgrounds as a lush green valley spreads beneath his feet, flakes of red sparking to life with every clean cut his blades make across the ice, and he lives in the color.”
In which Yuuri hears in color and ice skating becomes a whole new world to him.
Yuuri has some problems: he’s the new student in a big city school, he misses classes frequently because of his health, and, worst of all, he’s failing his history class. Viktor has some problems as well: he’s bored with his life, he has no idea what to do as a first-time educator, and, worst of all, no matter what he does, a certain student continues to fail his class. Falling in love is the unspoken rule that mustn’t be broken no matter what, but when the teacher and the student come together, it’s almost impossible not to.
‘…Of all the rivalries in the world of sports over the years, perhaps none has become so legendary as that of Russian figure skater Viktor Nikiforov and his rival, Japanese Yuuri Katsuki…’
A single event changes the course of Yuuri’s life, throwing him into a bitter rivalry with Viktor Nikiforov that spans across his entire skating career. But as the years go on, rivalry and hatred begin to develop into something very different and Yuuri doesn’t seem to be able to stay away, no matter how hard he tries.
Hatred and love are two sides of the same coin and even though everything changes, some things are still meant to be.
Some figure skaters found their inspiration from music. Some found it from joy, from sadness, from laughter, their deepest desires, from the elegant sound of their blades scraping the ice. Viktor Nikiforov had never dreamed he’d find the inspiration to enjoy his life-long passion again, until he met deaf figure skater Katsuki Yuuri.
Katsuki Yuuri is a brilliant thief, and unfortunately, gets caught stealing from a very important man. Malnourished, he spends his time in prison until one day…he’s saved. He’s free. As free as he can get. Under the wing of Victor Nikiforov, Yuuri learns the ways of a high-class thief, one who knows how to manipulate their target, how to seduce them, how to steal from them without getting caught. It’s thrilling to know Victor’s eyes are on him, the praise turning into gentle touch as Yuuri gets better. And sometimes, only touch isn’t enough.
Yuuri was going to go out on top, just like Viktor had. He was going to win gold in his third World’s appearance and then retire to spend the rest of his life with his husband. But when a freak accident during his finale free skate leaves him blind, Yuuri finds himself spiraling into a world darker than the one in front of his eyes.
Katsuki Yuuri, a world famous photographer who hides away in a little studio in Tokyo, finds that maybe fashion photography isn’t so bad. Not when you have the brightest smile in the whole of Japan (and Russia) shining at you through the lens.
Yuuri wanted to make history as the first deaf man to win the Grand Prix Final. Of course he’s a little skeptical of Victor Nikiforov’s presence, especially considering the reactions from others who have learned about his lack of hearing.
But Victor proves to be different, and Yuuri appreciates that. Now all that’s left is to tell the figure skating world about it.
Yuuri is a somewhat known designer who dropped everything after a disastrous show. Almost a year later, he starts casting models for his new collection and world famous model Victor Nikiforov shows up, wanting to be a part of the show regardless of how much he gets paid.
You’re right, this IS the most painfully beautiful kindergarten you’ll probably ever see. Kindergarten Susi-Weigel by Bernardo Bader Architects. The Austrian architecture studio is known for their amazing use of timber and glass in dreamy, natural designs. This two-story building located in Bludenz, Austria, is their newest project.
Honestly, seeing dark skin as not ugly but also beautiful is just kindergarten. Like this is just the basics. We need to get to the point where it’s also not hyper-sexualized and said action being seen as “support”
