Part 1 of the Yuri Plisetsky vs. Adulting series
“Fuck you. Fuck you for being kind, for seeing me for who I really am, and for looking good in a leather jacket. You ruined everything. I like you.”
Puberty sucks. Feelings suck more. In the wake of a post-Worlds meltdown, Yuri accidentally discovers his artistic identity in a jazz dance class with Otabek and Mila. Along the way, Otabek unleashes his inner Channing Tatum, Yuri gets in touch with his inner Georgi, and Yakov probably loses more hair. Welcome to the madness.

Part 2 of the Yuri Plisetsky vs. Adulting series
“Thinking Out Loud did not lend itself well to a club mix, so corny speech it is.”
Proposing was intimidating enough on its own, but how the fuck was one supposed to propose to Yuri “Married People Suck” Plisetsky? While coming up with 15 reasons to convince him, Otabek looks back on the last five years.

Like A Sun, It Burns by CalamityK, teen, 1.8k, warning: angst
Mila points out that maybe Yuri looks at Otabek a little differently, a bit too long, and a bit too starry-eyed.
“When he’s in the room, Yura, you barely have eyes for anything else.”
“He’s my best friend.”
“He’s your sunlight. You’re brighter when you’re with him.”
In a way, Yuri thinks, Otabek does kind of burn like the sun.

Liquor Stash by Severe_Minx, explicit, 39k, WIP
I want him.
When the full realisation hit him, Yuri felt as though he couldn’t breathe. Detached and fleeting thoughts that had passed through his mind finally took shape in these three words at that exact moment. The I being himself, Yuri Plisetsky, age 17, a Russian figure skater with a list of impressive accomplishments to his name that seemed pretty pointless right now given the context. The want being desire, the need to bury himself, the thought to consume, but never actually act out except behind locked doors in empty beds or shower stalls. The him being the person standing across from Yuri sipping coffee from a take-away cup with creased brows, the low sunlight hitting his face just so to light up his otherwise dark eyes. Someone he considered to be his best friend, who came all the way from Almaty just to spend a week with him and who was blissfully unaware of the fucking turmoil Yuri was feeling in the pit of his stomach. Or at least, Yuri hoped he was unaware.
In which Yuri Plisetsky invites Otabek Altin over to stay with him in Saint Petersburg, freaks out over his feelings and delves into Lilia’s liquor stash.
In the Land of the Wanderers by alpha_hydra, teen, 26k
“You have to use your Instagram more if we’re going to be friends, Altin,” Yuri warns when Otabek assumes Yuri is only waiting for Nikiforov and Katsuki to finish groping each other. “It’s no fun otherwise.”
Later, Otabek thinks of Yuri every time he pulls his phone out, and that’s really where it starts.
Hey, Jealousy by RC_McLachlan, general audiences, 4k
There are few things that give Yuri pleasure—the taste of accomplishment like cinnamon sugar on the back of his tongue after landing a quad; having a comeback so cutting that he practically draws blood; that soft murrf a cat makes when it decides it trusts him; the little green screenshot arrow appearing next to Otabek’s name in Snapchat—but they all pale in comparison to whenever the Russian hockey team visits the rink.
Every Time I Try, Every Time I Win by thissupposedcrime, teen, 4.7k
At least no one’s brought up couples costumes. Yuri isn’t sure how Otabek would react to a live recording of him leaping over a table to fight a reporter, a symbolic stand in for the death of Yuri’s sanity and Victor’s cutesy legacy. He guesses not well, and that is enough to hold his tongue.
Or, Otabek is naturally romantic, Yuri is naturally clueless, and somehow they work it out.
Wondering by lovelyisthenight (IrishFaerie01), teen, 964
He’d already come to terms with the fact that he doesn’t want it. And now, having to deal with the fact that he does, maybe, is… well, it’s a little terrifying.
