Collab With Me? (4k words) (WIP)
After Phichit posts a video of Yuuri watching Viktor Nikiforov’s latest video, one thing leads to another and suddenly Viktor’s flying to Detroit to do a collaboration with Yuuri.
Viktor, of course, is excited to get to know and befriend the beautiful vlogger he saw online and quickly became infatuated with. Yuuri’s freaking out because THE Viktor Nikiforov - one of the most successful YouTubers in the world - is talking to him and he has no idea what he’s doing (of course, he’s secretly just as excited as Viktor himself)
aka the YouTube AU where Yuuri’s a cinnamon roll and Viktor loves him for it
When I’m Sixty Four (2k words)
AU. These days, Victor and Yuuri are content living together in the peaceful home they made in St. Petersburg. But even after thirty four years, Victor still manages to surprise Yuuri. And who knew Yuuri still had moves left in him?
(Victuuri Week 2017 Day 8: Valentine’s Day)
I Like You (2k words)
Yuuri’s friends pressure him to confess to his long time crush, Victor. But, Victor beats him to it!
Basically a lot of fluff about them being third years in high school.
When The Tides Turn (3k words)
Victor, despite being a legendary skater and the world’s most eligible bachelor, has had horrible luck in the romance department. Yuuri’s never even been on a date. Chris and Phichit decide to set them up on a blind date in the hopes that luck may finally be in their favor.
Cursed Love (3k words)
“This blood of ours is cursed, Vitya,” Mama rasped, her blue eyes, identical to Victor’s own, pleading for him to understand. “The moment we fall romantically in love with someone, we curse them with death. The moment we realise what joy we have attained with another person, our curse will take them away from us, forever.”
Victor lives with the burden of a family curse over his head, running away from any opportunity to love, fearing that any affection will lead him to the heartbreak that consumed his entire family. But Yuuri Katsuki had captured his attention, his every thought, and Victor has no idea what this warm feeling attached to the mere thought of Yuuri was.
Victuuri Week Day 4: Free for all
Remembrance (3k words)
Victor remembers the confusion, hurt and rejection when he finds the empty hotel room that had once been occupied by an individual bearing the name of Katsuki Yuri hours ago, and said individual was now en route to Japan. He remembers sinking to the carpeted floor in his pajamas before returning to his own room to curl up in his comforter. He remembers Yakov coming over to help him pack with pity evident in his eyes when the check out time had long past and Victor was nowhere to be found. And all Victor could do was lie immobile on the bed with tears he thought would never end. He remembered lecturing his own self mentally, that it was ridiculous to act this way for someone you had only met once, but yet, he could not deny the fact that last night was the first time Victor had felt honestly living, relieved from the burdens and expectations as a renowned and international ice skater. Being with Yuri had felt absolutely right.
or a fic of how a heartbroken Victor had fared since that banquet and how he finally won Yuri’s heart
Ends and Beginnings (3k words)
When Yuuri told Victor he wanted to “end this”, Victor’s heart was broken.
Somewhere I Have Never Travelled (4k words) (WIP)
Victor is a specter, a killer, a myth, a machine trying to be a man.
(Victor falls in love with Yuuri—beautiful and out-of-nowhere, like the impractical black of his Aston Martin amidst the sea of tourists and locals in the streets of Barcelona. Yuuri falls in love with Victor like the slow bloom of a flower in spring in the middle of bustling Tokyo, tended and taken care of.)
Words and Worth (1k words)
Viktor overhears some fans saying not-nice things about Yuuri. It makes him angry.
Breathe In, Breathe Out (3k words)
Yuuri was never one to talk to people about his feelings- or his anxiety for that matter. He always hid away in his bathroom when the attacks came, but this time he has a panic attack on the ice and Viktor must step up to take care of him.
Moonrise (Royalty AU) (5k words)
couple o’ fics about yuuri + victor as princes.
Fall a Little Faster (3k words) (WIP)
If asked the question, “What are you most afraid of?”, Victor always has the same answer: “Falling in love.”
Most people take that answer as confirmation of his playboy nature or his phobia for commitment. Which is not true at all.
Then again, it isn’t like he can casually say, “A curse will kill me and my lover if I do” like it’s no big deal.
Victor has a curse so he sets an impossible set of expectations for his true love to make sure he never falls in love.
Then, he meets Yuuri Katsuki and somehow, the impossible doesn’t seem too impossible anymore.
You Can’t Order a Latte on the Rocks (2k words) (WIP)
Yuuri Katsuki is a twenty year-old dance major, working part-time at a coffee shop. Victor Nikiforov is a world-famous figure skater, who happens to enjoy coffee. Yuri Plisetsky happens to think they’re both gross, and is just there for the caffeine and to watch as the two of them quickly become one another’s inspiration. [coffee shop!au]
Old but Gold (5k words) (WIP)
“Do you know why ancient Spartans used to wear red in battle?”
A history quiz by your long-time lover you haven’t seen in a month? Totally fitting the mood.
“Uhh.. They wanted to conceal any possible injuries from the enemies while in combat, right? So the blood wouldn’t show and give the enemy any hope.”
Victor hummed suddenly looking all smug and proud.
“Yeah that’s what they wanted you to believe, but the truth is my favorite color used to be red at the time and their general was my friend.”
Was this man really trying to show off. By bragging about minor historical facts he had participated in?
Wait was that flirting?!
Aka the AU where both Victor and Yuuri are like really old vampires and while their first meeting was hundreds of years ago Victor remains the same dork Yuuri first met.
What Brings Me to You (4k words)
Viktor Nikiforov’s new apartment is haunted—he’s less bothered by this than you’d expect.
Painting a Portrait of Love (3k words) (WIP)
Foreign Politics where never King Viktor’s strong suit. Sure, he was nice and everyone loved him, but say one bad thing and it was all over. Looks like King Phichit of Thailand can experience this first hand. King Viktor is supposed to visit Thailand to follow with war proceedings, but it seems Phichit’s butler is a little bit of a distraction. Or a big one. Funny, wasn’t he here to start war? Oh well, might as well have fun while he’s here. (Monarch AU! King!Viktor, Butler!Yuuri!, and Heir to the Throne!Yuri!)
Soon a Happy Ending (2k words) (WIP)
Once upon a time, oh so very long ago…
Would you like to hear a story, little one? The sun’s almost set, but I think we still have time.
Life After You (1k words)
Viktor wakes up and realizes his year with Yuuri has been all a dream.
