So I came across this post from @queenofthecrackpit and decided to run with it. Hope you don’t mind me whipping up a short little thing for it, and I hope you enjoy ^-^
Soukoku | SFW | Mafia-era Dazai | Pure fluffy prosey bullshit because that’s all I know how to write.
There’s things about Chuuya that leave Dazai speechless, in the way he’ll just hang back, watch him, smile to himself and think, How does a person like that feel anything for someone like me.
It’ll happen after missions where they’re both going to come home dripping in more than sweat, but his boy still has a golden swagger because there’s no enemy of the Mafia’s that can contend with the power behind Chuuya’s skill - ability is one thing, but Chuuya knows what to do with it. That’s the important part; Chuuya can have his cake, eat it, and Dazai will think fondly back on the hours past and how nothing and no one and not a damn thing else could possibly get in Chuuya’s way and he can’t help but grin because only a force of nature could have made a man like that.
But then, sometimes, the moment is softer, and it’s a wonder to himself how he hasn’t just forfeited his loyalty to the Mafia just to give it all up for Chuuya.
It’ll happen after those missions, and after the blood, and once the wine’s all gone and Chuuya’s face is flushed pink in celebration. Chuuya will tell him how he carried the team but he supposes that he’s glad for the help, which easily translates into a thank-you the both of them know is there -
But then Chuuya will tuck himself into Dazai’s open side, and any snark Dazai would have thrown at him fades into one of those smiles, because how is the same man who was hours ago raining decimation onto their enemies the same man that’s warming him at his side, murmuring about waking him up in time the next morning so they can give their mission reports? The same man who will slowly, deliberately, turn after a few moments of his back pressed against Dazai’s side so it’s his front flush to his as his head rests on his chest?
Dazai only lets himself think about it long enough to just watch him, snuggled to his side like an over grown cat, before that smile on his face his pressed to Chuuya’s forehead and sleep takes him, too.
It occurs to me that Yuuri and Viktor have a very busy season ahead of them.
To put things into perspective:
Dec 8-11 - The GPF
Dec 22-25 - The Japan Figure Skating Championships
Dec 20-26 - The Russian Nationals
Jan 25-29 - The European Championships (which only Viktor can compete in).
Feb 14-19 - The Four Continents Championships (which only Yuuri can compete in)
Mar 29-Apr 2 - The World Championships
And a really interesting thing to note is that The Russian and Japanese nationals are both happening at the same time, so our babes are probably going to have to split up, and I’m actually really really hoping that’s addressed in season 2, because it’s such an interesting idea.
Viktor has Yakov with him, but who’s going to stand in as Yuuri’s coach? How are they going to deal with being separated for so long? I mean, at the most, it’s only about 5 or 6 days, but that’s going to be the longest they’ve been away from each other in nearly a year, and we saw how they were after being separated for like 2 days during the Rostelecom cup.
It’s a great chance to see how far they’ve come, both as skaters and as a couple. It’ll be interesting to see if Yuuri can learn from his experience at the Rostelecom cup, if he’s learned to be confident enough of himself as a skater, even without Viktor there to support him.
Maybe Celestino will step up to the plate to help out his former student? From what I can tell, Thailand’s nationals are usually held at the beginning of April, so I don’t think Phichit would have any other big competitions soon, so Celestino would probably be free.
And of course another interesting point to consider is that the Russian nationals are happening over Christmas (ie Viktor’s birthday). So you know Viktor’s probably going to be especially bummed, because this is his first birthday with Yuuri as his s/o and he’d probably been really looking forward to spending it together.
It would be really cool to see s2 focus on them both preparing for the Japanese and Russian Nationals respectively, since that would mean getting to see more of Viktor + Yura interactions, and more Yuuri + Minami interactions! Maybe we’ll get to see even more Japanese skaters? I mean, so far we’ve really only seen Yuuri and Minami (as opposed to the Russians, who have Viktor, Yuri, Georgi, and Mila).
And while I know it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but I have seen some rumours that we might be getting s2 this year, so that means it’ll probably air Oct-Dec again. So what if??? Hear me out for a second okay. What if, for the the finale, we get a Christmas special or something, and we get to see a tearful Victuuri reunion, where Yuuri books it out of Japan as soon as the awards ceremony is over, on the first flight he can get to Russia. And like he arrives the day after Christmas and surprises Viktor by showing up rinkside and have another dramatic kiss on live television, while Yura stands in the background puking and yelling about how gross they are.
i. I am happy, I think. Some days I wonder if I know who I am without you, but what does it matter if I will never be without you? We are happy, I think.
ii. I cover myself in the pity of missing you. In the realisation I might be nothing without you. In the urge to tell you about my day. In knowing you don’t want to hear it. In rejection.
iii. I wasn’t ready. I rushed into something new too soon just to feel wanted and I regret it now. I can’t take it back, but I can take a breath and refocus.
iv. I am something now, without you.
