“Can I kiss you?”

Yuuri is a little taken back by the sudden request but then finds it a little funny that Viktor would ask him such a question. It’s just turned evening and the sun has turned the sky into orange-pinkish hues as it sets below the horizon. They’ve just eaten dinner which sat wonderfully heavy in their stomachs and the room is silent except for soft breathing. 

“I’m sorry?” Yuuri asks because he heard it the first time but wants to hear it again. 

A delicate flush settles upon the apples of Viktor’s cheeks and he sighs before turning to face Yuuri. His hand is still curled loosely around Yuuri’s own and the pad of his thumb slowly brushes against his palm. The action creates tiny shivers that races up Yuuri’s arm and they’re pleasant to feel that Yuuri fully embraces it. He finds himself turning onto his side to greet Viktor’s blush-stained cheeks and holds back a wide grin. 

“What did you say?” Yuuri requests once again and Viktor rolls his eyes with a brief laugh. 

“I’m asking if I can kiss you,” Viktor finally repeats. “Again?”

The familiar flood of warmth threats to grace Yuuri’s cheeks but he wills it down to maintain a level of cool. “And why are you asking?” he responds, his head tilting against his plush pillow. “When you easily kissed me on the ice in front of the entire world.”

“I admit that was a bit much-” Viktor starts but Yuuri stops him with a slight shake of his head, his mouth curved into a soft smile. 

“I liked it.” Yuuri confesses, the warmth now exploding beneath the skin of his cheeks and Viktor smiles, soft and sweet. 

“I liked it too,” Viktor replies and his hand tightens around Yuuri’s as he entwines their fingers together. “But…I wanted to do it the right way?” It comes out as a question like Viktor isn’t even sure about what he’s asking for. “It was kind of a surprise and really out of nowhere but I didn’t-”

Yuuri stops him once more and this time, it’s by pressing his free hand against Viktor’s cheek. It’s silky smooth against his touch and warm and Yuuri can feel the high arch of the cheekbone that rises up whenever Viktor smiles. Whenever he smiles so beautifully that it takes Yuuri’s breath away. 

“Kiss me.” Yuuri says, finds himself commanding it as he wants for Viktor to kiss him again and again until Viktor’s all he can taste. 

And Viktor does.

He leans forward with an eagerness that Yuuri only thought he possessed and it’s a kiss that imprints itself on his very soul, aiming to stay there for a lifetime.


u know i’ve expressed my love for fake married/fake dating many, many times but like. is anything better. is anything better on this earth. does any trope or genre truly care for us quite like this one. let us reflect on a few of the gifts that fake married/dating consistently gives us:

  • character a asks “hey, will you pretend to be my date for a week for [convoluted excuse that could easily be solved without a fake relationship]?” character b, fully convinced of the futility of their DEEP AND UNREQUITED LOVE, figures this’ll be a chance to spend time with them and possibly put their feelings to rest. character b is always wrong & it is always amazing.
  • having to SHARE A LIVING SPACE FOR ARBITRARY FIC REASONS. having to see eachother in their pajamas first thing in the morning, messy haired, drowsy eyed and soft faced. going from “you can have the bathroom first” to brushing their teeth beside eachother and feeling like this closeness has always existed (at the same time, painfully aware that it won’t always). 
  • related to the last one – “"practicing”“ their casual touching so that it’s easier when they’re in public. feeling SWOOPS OF ARDOR AND AGONY when they feel the brush of a hand on their neck, or an arm loop around their waist. don’t you love how fake marrieds/dates are always method actors who must FULLY INHABIT their roles. i love it. i live for it. 
  • bed sharing. :^) we all pretend we’re bigger than this but we are not. 
  • “kiss me while everyone’s looking.”
  • the character who wasn’t aware they were in love (maybe always had been) until the fake relationship is in full swing, realizing they have to sort their feelings out before their time together is up. sometimes they succeed and angst is minimal. most of the time they don’t, really.
  • telling eachother “i love you” in public and meaning it, heart aching over it, but bELIEVING THE OTHER 2 BE ACTING. my soul is still 15, this garbage still gets me. u don’t get pining better than this.
  • the days leading up to the end of the arrangement where one of them, still confused and muddy about their Feelings and unsure how to break things off, stiffens to the casual, reflexive touching and puts their walls back up. the other one accepts and respects this as the end of their agreement and squashes back down all the hope they ever had, stuffs it next to the heartbreak they’re ignoring deep in their chest. 
  • when they realize they’re actually fully and enthusiastically mutual about the way they feel and it’s, like, two parts euphoria and one part agony because they just cannOT BELIEVE, the happiness tears them in two. maybe there are weepy or laughing kisses. i don’t know but i’m usually invested like 2000%. i love fake dating/marrieds. 
  • I LOVE EM.



Nerve Endings” by Phyona

When Yuuri moves in with Victor in St. Petersburg, they have to work through Yuuri’s anxiety and Victor’s secrets to find their balance.

“I have no defense against you.”

“I’m not the one pinning you to the couch right now.”

“You might as well be.”


Fic Rec September 20, 2017


On Ice



“Hey,” he said softly, and Viktor’s heart melted for him like it had so many times during their practice session today already. Every hour, at least ten times, Viktor Nikiforov fell in love with Yuuri Katsuki all over again. “Will you come with me? There’s something I wanna do.” (Porn with some semblance of a plot; Viktor attempts to understand Yuuri’s anxiety, and Yuuri thanks him in the only way he knows how.)


col3bri: It’s been a while since we’ve rec’ed a smut fic… leave it to me to find the one that spends the first half of the story dealing with emotions. 😉

AO3: “We’re updating our search engines so anyone searching can filter out/exclude certain works.”

Everyone: Oh, thank god.

(In all seriousness, I hope a lot of people [antis]use this feature. That way they won’t bitch about how many “enemies to lovers” fanfics are harmful or bitch about ships and other troupes they hate.)
