Yuri on Ice fic recs
Since I’m constantly refreshing the Ao3 feed, I thought it might be time to post some fic recommendations! There are no WIPs on this list, but I’ve been following some and will add them to this list once they are finished. If there’s something great you think I’m missing, let me know!
Baby, Come Light Me Up by astroturfwars- “‘Let’s go,’ Yuuri tells him, and leans down to press his lips to the corner of Victor’s mouth. He lingers there for a moment, deliberate, before he straightens up again. ‘I think it’ll be fun.’
He traces the line of Victor’s jaw. Victor tips his head back easily, obligingly, and gives Yuuri a pout that should not be nearly as endearing as it is. ‘Your idea of fun does not seem fun,’ he says. ‘I think I’d rather stay in. Wouldn’t you?’ E
The Banquet by Nomanono- Interactive fic with ten different endings! E
By a String by IWroteAFic- “Katsuki looks like he might break at any moment, so Yuri keeps his mouth shut.
(Yuri Plisetsky gets a taste of Yuuri Katsuki’s anxiety and he’s not sure how to handle it.)” G
Come Close and Hold Me Tight by dinosar- “yuuri and viktor talk about what happened after yuuri’s free skate in china, and things progress from there” E
Fall by Clockwork_Mockingbird- “A skater always knows how to fall on the ice. Falling for a person, now that’s a totally different story.” T
Fascination by smudgesofink- “Victor didn’t understand it at first but Yuuri has such a deep fascination with every part of his body.” T
Fresh off the Presses by fan_nerd- “Based on his book selections, Yuuri’s not sure if this regular is a horny pervert, a cop, or a nerd. Victor is weird and eccentric, and the bookkeeper is pretty sure that the man has never come in with his hair combed.” T
The History Books are Made for Us by d10smessi- “Victor thinks, I’ll never love someone this way again.” NR
I Have My Body (And You Have Yours) by astoryaboutwar- “Yuuri overflows with the weight of things that have been said, trembles with what remains. Their shared zeroes flicker in time, the early morning light muting the red glow to faint numbers. In the amber dawn, an idol is only just a man.” M
Kibitzing by euphemisms- “Some people think that Viktor Nikiforov could have done a lot better than Yuuri Katsuki. Some people should learn to keep their opinions to themselves.” T
Koi by Ash_Lumos- “Viktor is always curious to know more about Yuuri’s culture, so the boy takes his coach to a traditional Japanese Summer Festival. Their special night together turns out to be even more magical than they had predicted.” E
Light-Bringer by kevystel- “‘I can do it,’ Viktor says. He’s seventeen. ‘I’ll choreograph it myself.’
It doesn’t all go smoothly. He messes up a triple toe loop and is so angry at himself that he changes his next two jumps to a quadruple salchow and a quadruple flip, to the roars of the crowd.” Series is G-M
Like Your French Girls by ebenroot- “in which Victor is an artist, Yuuri is his figure skating muse, and Yuri is so done hearing about their stupid love story through Instagram” T
A Match Worth Waiting For by fan_nerd- “a collection of fics centered around a/b/o dynamics. victor is an omega; yuuri is an alpha.” E
Morning Breaks in Saint Petersburg by neomeruru- “Yuuri moves in with Victor in Russia and makes himself at home, with some help.” E
Nights So Slow by jibrailis- “‘Well,’ Viktor says helplessly, because it’s all ruined now, ‘I was going to try and seduce you.’” E
On Our Love by LiaoftheDawn- “Everything was so easy and real with Yuuri. Even with the lingering tension and the unspoken inevitability of separation, they somehow managed to fall back into something close to a routine, effortless conversation, easy jabs and quiet smiles and something he wanted to hold on to for the rest of his life. Home.” M
Question and Answer by chellthewriter- “Viktor is growing old, and his competitors seem to be growing younger and younger. Thus, with every passing year, Viktor finds fewer familiar faces at his Grand Prix banquets, and he wonders whether his attendance has become pointless. What he doesn’t realize, however, is that one unfamiliar, alcohol-reddened face can make the whole night more than worthwhile.” T
Some Things Require Leaving by idrilka- “It still amazes Victor, how much one person can feel like home.
(Or: On leaving and returning.)” T
Stay Awake with Me Awhile by kevystel- “The problem, should Viktor care to take the time to think about it, is that he’s no longer competing to win. He’s defending his title. It is a very different experience. It burns a hole in his palm, sometimes, on the mornings he lets himself sleep in.” T
True by animehead- “Viktor is spoiled, and Yuuri is his enabler.” E
Unimaginable by emilyenrose- “Sixteen year old Victor spontaneously travels to the future, where he’s… retired? And married?” T
Unwritten by kaizuka- “Soulmates AU where whatever you write on your own skin appears on your soulmate, but when there is a language barrier, meeting becomes just a little more difficult than it should be.” T
Victor Effing Nikiforov by shysweetthing- “AU in which Yuuri still doesn’t remember the banquet, somehow doesn’t blow Japanese Nationals, runs into Victor at the World Championships, and has absolutely no idea why his idol is suddenly friendly and incredibly handsy.
Does Yuuri care about his reasons? No. It’s Victor Effing Nikiforov.” E
