There are two -main- ways this can go:
1. Everything is the same, but Yuuri is a yuki-onna bullied in the past because of his gender (is he trans or not? can go either way), and loses his powers because of it. Still in love with the ice (and one Viktor Nikiforov), he becomes a figure skater, and we all know what happens from there… Bonus points if:
- There is a fan dance in there somewhere
- Phichit knows and is also some sort of supernatural creature (boy would look adorable with bat ears, just sayin’)
- Yuuri’s body temp is naturally low because hello, snow youkai? But Viktor doesn’t know so he tries to warm up Yuuri as much as he can. Phichit loses his shit the first time he FaceTimes with Yuuri and sees him under a pile of blankets because Viktor Nikiforov is trying to take care of him and Yuuri doesn’t have the heart to tell him no.
2. Complete AU where Viktor takes a vacation to Japan (rip Yakov’s blood pressure) and has an encounter with Yuuri…. Bonus points if:
- Yuri gets worried and runs off to Japan to look for him, only to find a head-over-heels Viktor mooning after a confused but equally smitten Yuuri (raging ensues), or
- Viktor goes back to Russia (there are many reasons this can be) with new inspiration and skates a program that details his encounter with Yuuri, hoping to see him again, or
- The Katsuki family’s Yu-topia is actually a bathhouse inn for youkai, and everyone mistakenly thinks Viktor is not a human. Viktor just rolls with it. Yuuri eventually finds out and sends him away because it’s too dangerous for him, and Viktor pines like no tomorrow.
If something like this exists, please rec me I’m so thirsty for this au
