2008 olympics babes
Based off of @indiansummersunset and @iverindes preppy trust fund college kid Viktor. Yuuri is going to be a lot more skilled than when we first saw him in the series so basically. Super good skater + Trust fund Kid Viktor
(I sincerely apologize)
Yuuri stared down at the campus map on his phone, despite his glasses he still squinted to try to make sense of the many paths that overlapped each other. He looked up from his phone to see if there were any actual street signs then ruffled his hair and pushed his glasses further up his nose. “What’s the rink called anyways?” His muttered question was answered by a small group of girls all focused on someone out in the field. “It’s Nikiforov Rink.” They answered without even looking in Yuuri’s direction.
He stared down at the phone in his hands again, trying to find Nikiforov Rink, only to let out a frustrated sigh and adjust his glasses. “Nikiforov Rink? Where’s that? I’m going to be late to practice!” None of the girls answered his question but the figure they were focused on turned to look at him. Yuuri swore he could see literal sparkles surrounding the VIneyard Vines clothed man. Everything about him screamed preppy as he jogged across the large field, a frisbee in one hand and a smirk on his face. “Hey you!”
Yuuri looked both ways to see who the guy was shouting at then pointed to himself. “Who, me?”
“Yeah you!” The man jogged over with a bright smile while Yuuri could only think ‘Oh shit’ in his head. “Hey I heard you were lost, Nikiforov Rink right? I can find it on the campus app for you.” He smiled brightly as he held his hand out.
Yuuri looked down at his phone with an uncertain expression then smiled back and handed it to him. “Alright, thank you!”
After the silver-haired man typed for a few seconds he handed the phone back. “Here you go, good luck!” He winked at Yuuri then jogged back over to his friend to resume playing ultimate frisbee.
Yuuri smiled slightly and followed the map to the rink, he did however get sidetracked by a new message on his phone with a new contact.
From: Vik Nikiforov:
My parents build Nikiforov rink
But they built me better
The texts were followed with an obscene number of emojis. Yuuri blushed a bright red then slid his phone into his pocket.
Once Yuuri had made it to the rink he stashed his phone away in his bag and pulled his skates out. He laced them up then pulled his sweatshirt off and walked to the rink side. “Um, Mr. Cialdini?” A tall dark-haired man with a pony tail turned then flashed a bright smile. “Ah Yuuri!”
Yuuri smiled nervously then nodded and bowed. “Thank you for coaching me Mr. Cialdini!”
Celestino smiled as he waved his hands. “No need for that, you can call me Celestino or Ciao Ciao.” Yuuri smiled at that then nodded and gestured to the ice. “Ah, um. May I?”
Ciao Ciao nodded then gestured to the ice excitedly. Yuuri smiled as he took his skate guards off and set them on the barrier next to his glasses. After pushing his hair back he glided out and looked at the other skaters who were there. Since it wasn’t a “Scheduled” practice everyone was free to use the rink however they wanted. As he watched the groups fumble on the ice he practically winced at the way they were digging into the ice and creating holes.
Yuuri took a deep breath then put his wireless headphones in his ears, his phone already playing music that connected to them. Once he found out that the groups basically stayed at the edges of the rink to grip onto the barrier he glided to the center and closed his eyes. He took a deep breath then began to do warm-ups, a few simple laps around the rink and then basic jumps.
After he had warmed up he began to skate, testing out the choreography he had in his head. He sighed as he tried to figure out how to fit everything together into his new program. He spent almost an hour trying to work on choreography before huffing and pushing his hair away from his face.
Ciao Ciao spent the first hour observing and giving comments from the boards before having to leave to go to a meeting on the other side of the campus. Yuuri watched him leave with a sigh then went back to skating, the music changed to his most recent skate that he performed, making him smile and begin to skate as if he was at a competition again.
Yuuri didn’t get the chance to notice that the ice was completely empty, most of the students in the stands watching him. Thanks to another student who began to live record it to the rest of the campus, most of the students who weren’t in classes began to file in.
He had his eyes closed as he glided across the ice with a bright smile going from his step sequence into a quad flip, triple toe loop combination. By the time he finished that combination jump Viktor Nikiforov and his entourage had entered to see the newest skating scholarship winner.
It had almost become a show at the point with how many people came to see him skate, when he transitioned into his biellmann spin more than half of the students gasped as Yuuri did it then began dizzying spins.
Yuuri finished in a few minutes then slid his earbuds out for the first time in about two hours, he almost fell over when he heard cheers coming from the stands. Once he noticed that he was the only one on the ice he had never been so happy for his near blindness after he had his glasses off.
He was a blushing mess as he quickly skated off the ice and put his skate guards on, only to then shove everything in his duffel and quickly rush out of the building.
Chris hummed at Viktor’s side once the newest scholarship kid rushed out of the rink, he turned to talk to Viktor when he noticed that he was still staring at the ice. “Hey Viktor, what do you think of our newest student?”
“Kruto! Did you see how he moved on the ice Chris, we need to bring him on the yacht. Yuri make sure he get’s invited to the next yacht party!” Viktor was interrupted by Yuri Plisetsky yanking his shirt and glaring. “I’m not your secretary old man.”
Viktor simply smiled as he took his sweater off then swung it over his shoulder, keeping it in place with his pointer finger acting as a hook. “So everyone, should we make him part of the group?”
Yuri muttered a dark ‘no’, Chris smirked and said ‘yes’, Georgie was still crying from ‘the beauty of the way he glided across the ice’, and Mila grinned with a ‘yes’. “Okay so we have two for yes one for no and I think a yes from Georgie but I’m not sure. Let’s invite him to frisbee tomorrow too, Yuri, make sure he gets invited to frisbee!”
“I told you I’m not your secretary old man!” Yuri was fuming as he stomped off to his dorm, leaving the four to walk back to their own dorms together.
“So you like Yuuri huh?” Chris saddled up to Viktor side then smirked. “Oh mon ami you should see the way he dances too~!”
Viktor nearly pounced on Chris as he grinned, “He dances too?! Chris he’s so perfect we have to go to his next performance or his next skate. Maybe Mama will let me hold an emergency skating event! We can have some roses there for him and then we can give him other flowers too not just roses right? He might not like roses though so we can give him maybe some lilies? Oh! Wait maybe he’d want a more expensive thing for that! Let’s get him a faberge then right? Any questions? No? Okay we’re going shopping soon then!”
Mila put her finger to her lips as she thought then looked around the campus ground. “Why don’t you just ask him Viktor?”
“But how can I ask him Mila?” Viktor whined while leaning on the redhead then pouted. “Viktor…Viktor he’s right there getting his dorm keys okay?” Viktor perked up at that, his eyes scanning the quad before they landed on the Japanese man walking out of the administrative building.
Viktor rushed over to the Japanese man then flipped his bangs and grinned. “Hey there Yuuri, wanna go on a trip on my daddy’s yacht?” He finished with a hand on his hip and a wink.
Yuuri stammered a few words in Japanese, too flustered to changed to English before shaking his head, his cheeks varying colors of red that spread from his ears. Viktor’s grin faded slightly as he observed Yuuri before a loud bark could be heard, followed by Yuri’s angry yelling. “Oi! Old man get your dog! Why was he in my room anyways!?”
Viktor turned just in time for his dog, Makkachin, to fly past him and knock Yuuri down. Yuuri let out a loud ‘oof’ then began to giggle as Makkachin licked his face. “V-Vicchan what are you doing- Wait. You’re not Vicchan?” Makkachin let out a bark then went back to licking Yuuri.
“Makka get off of him!” Viktor quickly grabbed Makkachin and dragged him off of Yuuri before holding his hand out. “Sorry about Makkachin, she doesn’t normally do that.”
Yuuri laughed as he sat up then scratched Makkachin behind her ears. “It’s okay, she’s cute.” He played with the poodles large ears before standing up fully and looked down at the packet in his hands. “Well, uh. I going to go find my dorm? Did I say that right?” Yuuri mumbled to himself before shaking his head and quickly rushing off. Shouting a ‘Bye Viktor’ over his shoulder.
“Chris?” Viktor asked his friend without looking at him, his eyes glued on Yuuri as he made his way through the quad.
“Yes, Viktor?” Chris saddled up to his side then smiled.
“I’m gonna date that boy.”
When Yuuri made his way into his dorm he was immediately blinded by balloons flying at his face and then a flash disorienting his vision. “Welcome new roomie!” Yuuri blinked before his vision cleared to see a thai man with hamsters on his shoulders and a phone in his hand.
“A-Ah, I’m Yuuri!” Yuuri smiled then held his hand out. Phichit grinned as he finished typing then pulled Yuuri into a hug. “I know,I’m Phichit. You know you really should update your insta more often. I need to see pics of my new roomie’s adventures!”
Yuuri laughed slightly then ruffled his hair and maneuvered around the balloons to set his duffel down. “Um, I have all of my stuff in the car if you can help me?”
Phichit grinned as he nodded then practically skipped down the hallway with Yuuri in tow. “We’re going to have so much fun this year Yuuri, sorry I could be at the rink to welcome you but I had a class then.”
“Oh it’s okay I got here late so I left all of my things sitting in the car and just ran down to the rink.” Yuuri laughed slightly then skidded to a stop next to the car with Phicht. “You get to meet Vicchan!”
As soon as the door opened Vicchan bounded out and into Yuuri’s arms, Phichit took a picture of that with a grin then slid his phone into his pocket and went to pet Vicchan before the two turned when they heard a squeal.
“Yuuri that was so cute!” Yuuri turned to see Viktor with a frisbee in his hand and a bright smile on his face. “I didn’t know you had a poodle!”
“I-Uh, yeah?” Yuuri blushed to the tips of his ears as he slightly hid his face behind Vicchan. Viktor jogged over then grinned at Phichit before turning his attention to Yuuri. “He’s cute, what’s his name?”
“Oh. Uh Vicchan!” Yuuri continued to blush in different colors before setting the small poodle on the ground.
Viktor smiled and went to say something before Chris shouted from the field. “Hey Vik throw the frisbee!” He pouted slightly before winking at Yuuri and jogging back across the field. “You’re no fun Chris!”
“Yuuri?” Phichit continued to stare at Viktor as he ran, his pink Vineyard Vines shirt drawing attention to himself.
“Yeah?” Yuuri turned his head to look at Phichit while petting Vicchan who had his head tilted to the side.
“Why did Viktor Nikiforov come talk to you? Why didn’t you tell me?!” Phichit let out a series of incoherent screeching noises while Yuuri blushed and attempted to get his new roommate to stop.
• 10 Iconic Moments of Yuzuru Hanyu’s 2016/2017 Season •
1st clean quad loop ⛸ “Mou chotto” pose 👌 Crazy swan🔥 #cricket bros save 😅 1st 4-time consecutive GPF champion 🏆 #yolo emergency layout 🆘 1st free skate over 220 points 🎉 2-time World champion 🏅 1st program with 3 quads in the 2nd half ✨ #pink bow 🎀
Things were not easy for Yuzu going into this season, from the heartbreak of Boston, to being off-ice for 2 months because of his lis franc ligament injury, to struggling to get used to his jumps again when he could finally step back into the rink, to nearly skipping the entire season…
Against all odds, Yuzuru gave us a season full of miracles and firsts. He fought like a true champion throughout.
despite the weird sexual stuff that started to emerge from it, skate 2 is a very calming influence upon my life because whenever I played it I would imagine that Reda was Meowth. for that reason alone skate 2 makes me very happy to think about
more on this ransom/holster au where holster is an nhl player and ransom is a doctor. sorry this got long, i got really inspired
ransom is a young doctor in upstate new york who’s working a fuckton of hours for no money at his third choice placement hospital
he’s looking to supplement his income when he sees the local nhl team, the buffalo sabres, is looking for a part time assistant team doctor
holster plays for the sabres, obviously (it’s nice to play for his home team)
about a month into justin’s stint as assistant team doc, holster gets boxed around the ears and ends up with a mild concussion
he hits on ransom because ransom is gorgeous and holster is pretty openly bisexual
ransom doesn’t catch on because the guy has a concussion, of course he’s a little loopy
(holster is completely in his right mind, please)
now holster makes excuses to see ransom. at first ransom is far too busy to try to be anyone’s friend but he warms when holster quotes liz lemon. after that they become thick as thieves
they text when adam’s at away games or when ransom is too busy to make plans; after one particularly rough shift ransom comes home to find holster making a homecooked meal and mean girls queued up on netflix
holster knows ransom is straight so he lays off the flirtation. that doesn’t mean he doesn’t still pine, though. he knows the look on his face is pathetic when ransom isn’t looking
ransom loves having a best friend, especially one who understands being busier than god (the last few girls he’s seen has only ended in disaster, i.e. accusations of not being present enough, which he gets, honestly)
speaking of… ransom’s been feeling a little… weird lately? about holster? like when they hang out he has hella fun, but along with that happiness is a bumbling sort of warm feeling in between his ribs? he’s not sure what to make of the fact that he caught himself licking his lips while holster was plugging his laptop in…
one night when they both have a day off they get a little schwasted. they’re watching golden girls (one of holster’ favorites; ransom will never admit that it’s not as bad as he tells holster it is), ransom catches holster looking at the side of his face. when he turns their faces are… well they’re much closer than they would usually allow
holster holds ransom’s gaze and leans in. all justin can do is watch as holster closes in and let his eyes flutter closed while adam’s warm lips move softly against his
it’s too hot, ransom can’t take it, can’t take the prickly flush spreading across his chest and the thick, syrupy feeling at the base of his skull that whispers how good it feels. he runs
they don’t speak for a week after that. holster, for his part, feels like an idiot because he knew ransom was straight, what the fuck did he expect? he’s probably ruined the best friendship he’s ever had
ransom feels bad because whatever his feelings his best bro deserves better than his calls being ignored, but ransom just needs some space to figure things out. he takes some time off from the team doctor job and takes extra shifts at the hospital
he doesn’t get much time, however, before he see holster again: this time he’s pale and cold on a gurney whipping in to the emergency room
he’s taken a skate to the neck, has lost a lot of blood. justin watches helplessly as they rush him into surgery. he’s the one to call holster’s parents, the one sitting sightlessly in the waiting room until they arrive, earning sympathetic looks from his colleagues
holster pulls through, though it had been touch and go. ransom keeps vigil by his bedside while his parents are out. he doesn’t even feel embarrassed about the desperate way he’s clutching adam’s hand
he knows the soaring feeling in his chest when holster’s eyes finally flicker open is something like love, but he’s had some time to do some soul-searching and had made his peace with it. the weak, half-smile holster gives him when he can’t help but press the still-too-pale hand to his lips is answer enough
