if you have to stay home because of the world coronavirus situation, and are looking for fics to read, these are some of my favorite fics.
NEXT LEVEL: Nights After Dreams https://archiveofourown.org/works/10974756/chapters/24436476
The silver medal was hard fought and won, but now the stakes are higher than ever. Five gold medals loom on the horizon, but more importantly, the “life and love” within the gold rings. Yuri and Viktor’s relationship grows as they get back on the competition road, and new complications rise with them. (Proper follow-up to the TV series; not AU, no crack ships, no weird shit.)
The Next Level https://archiveofourown.org/works/10599636/chapters/23434005
The skating season continues (as skating seasons are wont to do), while Victor and Yuuri negotiate the shifts in their relationship, their careers, and their home rink. Sometimes, things even go as planned.
‘Cause I’m a Taker, 'Cause I’m a Giver, It’s Only Nature https://archiveofourown.org/works/9173269/chapters/20825470
This is a story that runs during the main canon of Yuri!!! On Ice, from episode four and beyond until a month after Worlds. Primarily though, this is a story about sex, dating, love, and marriage—yes, in that order.
The Real Podium Family https://archiveofourown.org/works/13589265/chapters/42656192
Follow Yuuri and Viktor as they go through competitions, starting from Viktor’s comeback to the end of the Olympic season.
Gains and Losses https://archiveofourown.org/chapters/31243875?show_comments=true
From the Cup of China to the Worlds the following season and the unexpected departure from Russia; two young men discover their feelings. Eighteen months of love and laughter, fear and worry… gains and losses.
The set of Yuuri’s mouth softened into a private smile as Victor squeezed his knee beneath the table. His hands were bare, free from the gloves he so often wore when they were together on the rink, and the heat of his palm burned straight through the denim of Yuuri’s jeans. He slipped his own hand beneath the table and found Victor’s. Hidden from sight, their fingers began to flirt and play. A secret conversation all their own that needed no words.
Yuuri was aware that at some point—a moment in time he couldn’t quite place—Victor had become his boyfriend.
There wasn’t a single instant when it happened. It was a slow awareness, as if Victor had silently been asking the question for months now, and Yuuri had been giving him the answer a little more with each passing day.
Hello~! Thank you so much for requesting. I have actually never heard of painting restoration before and so I looked it up (please forgive me for any mistakes)! It’s super satisfying! For anyone interested, I found a video about it. I actually really love this request, so if you’re interested in a continuation (as in I make this a whole AU with credits to @doki-dolly), don’t be afraid to leave a comment or enter my ask box! I did do a little continuation of it that I hope you can enjoy! (I actually completed this piece while listening to a couple of painting conservation videos! I definitely have a new addiction now^^;.) As always, feel free to request another piece! I hope you enjoy~!
“You know you can leave, right Mr. Nikiforov?” Yuuri said, gently gliding a cotton swab across the painting, “This is going to take a while. As I said before, the estimated time it will take to restore this painting is about two to three weeks, and today I will be working on it for nine hours. If you want to see my progress from today, you can just come back after the nine hours is finished and I’ll gladly bring it out and show you.” Victor took a sip from his cup and set it on the guest table. “I suppose I just enjoy watching you work,” he admitted, shrugging his shoulders a bit, “You’re the only person I go to for painting restoration and by far my favorite.” Yuuri paused and looked at Victor from his working table. He let out a small laugh seeing the fascination in Victor’s eyes. “I just don’t see how something as slow and boring could be so interesting to someone,” Yuuri continued to clean up grime off of the painting, “Don’t get me wrong, I love my job, but I can’t see how someone else could find it so interesting.” Yuuri lifted the swab from the painting, scanning for any spot he may have missed. “I suppose paintings really are your passion then,” he said, “You’re the first person to have stayed and watched the process.” Victor was a regular customer, coming to Yuuri whenever he had a new painting that had come to his possession. Whenever a painting was brought in, Victor never left the shop for a couple of hours. He would just sit at the guest table, watching the process. Yuuri just couldn’t understand how someone could sit and watch such a process in complete silence without going insane.
Victor stood up and walked towards the table that Yuuri was at. “Do you mind if I stand here?” Victor asked, studying Yuuri. “Yes, of course. All I ask is that you don’t touch anything,” Yuuri continued working before he sprung up, “Oh my gosh! I totally forgot to ask if you would like a chair! I’ll go get you one right now!” Victor quickly waved his hand in dismissal while laughing. “No need to worry! I prefer to stand,” he stated through his laughter. Yuuri relaxed and continued to work. “I can’t apologize enough, Mr. Nikiforov. I was just focused and it totally slipped my mind,” Yuuri said, the sincerity clear in his voice. Victor’s gaze never left Yuuri. The longer he stared, the more detail he saw. The small crease in Yuuri’s eyebrow when he was cleaning the corners, the way he bit his lip when gently wiping the signature, the glow in his eyes whenever he finished a large piece of the painting… “To address your curiosities earlier,” Victor said, his eyes never leaving Yuuri, “Of course, I am an avid art collector. I love art, everything about it is absolutely stunning to me. I wasn’t really interested in the restoration process, but I adore the way you do it. You might even argue I stay here just to watch you work, not the process.” Yuuri’s face flushed red.
“Oh, thank you, Mr. Nikiforov,” Yuuri’s voice trembled from embarrassment. “We’ve known each other for quite a while now, just call me Victor.” A smile was beaming across Victor’s face as he spoke. Yuuri turned to look at him but quickly turned away. Playful from Yuuri’s shyness, Victor began to question him. “So, how long have you been a painting conservator?” Victor asked, slowly getting closer to Yuuri. “Actually, only one year. I started when I was 22 and I’m 23 right now,” Yuuri responded, returning his focus on the painting. “Oh, so we are only four years apart!” The excitement was evident in his voice. At first, Victor admired Yuuri’s skill and work. Now, it was forming into an infatuation with Yuuri himself. Victor was glad to learn anything about Yuuri and was more pleased to know that they were not too far apart in age. “So, I’m interested in the process you take to conserve paintings,” Victor said, trying to stay as calm as he could, “So how about, say maybe two days from now, you tell me over coffee?” Yuuri’s face turned bright red. He had admired Victor’s art collection for so long, and now he had the chance to finally speak with him about it! Seconds of silence passed before Yuuri gave his answer. “Sure, I’d like that.”
I usually try to keep my asks about 300-600 words, but this prompt was so fun and engaging to write! I hope you can enjoy my continuation of your prompt and the writing itself, @doki-dolly! If anyone is interested in me turning this into a full-blown AU, please leave an ask or a comment asking for a continuation. If I do continue this AU, I will probably add more to this section as well as a piece before it, emphasizing how Victor and Yuuri meet in this AU. Thank you so much for requesting, and feel free to do so again! As always, my main account is @queenwinterofluna. If you enjoyed this piece like and leave a comment below! Constructive criticism is always welcome and appreciated. Reblogs are also very treasured! If you are interested in requesting a piece, the guidelines are here!
Redraw of this skating competition outfit I drew for the Keeping Up With The Katsuki-Nikiforovs blog in December of 2016 (ft. Mother Hen Yuuri lol). The blog no longer exists but it was my favorite Victuuri kids imagines blog!! This drawing is the short program outfit of the middle child, Mirai. It is supposed to be a mix between Yuuri’s Eros costume and Chris’ short program (because he choreographed the short program for her). I just wanted to make a few small changes and show off the improvements in my art style. At the time, I’d never drawn clothes before!! Now I’m hoping to go into designing!
Day 5 of lamenting the flippant nature of Studio Mappa’s claims and begging for YOI to return:
As I missed the opportunity to have Yuri on Ice viewing parties back when the show was running, I have decided that I will be theming my birthday party around YoI and hunkering down with friends for 4 hours of pure, blissful sCREECHING. Admittedly, I’m too old for this business, bUT I DONT CARE.
So all are invited, in solidarity with my pining, to rewatch YoI on March 21st. May we lose our minds again together, in spirit.
Happy new year!! 😊 🎉
First fanart of the year :D
Finally ready to post my picture as a declaration of love for the amazing @d-toska. This piece of work is inspired by her amazing fic on AO3, “Between Sixes”. In addition to being an amazing writer, Toska is a lovely person and good friend. If you are into great Vikturi content, please read this story, it’s my personal recommendation and one of my all time favorites.

Another dumb idea (probably worse than before) but I want to see Yuri and Viktor at banquet night and Yuri’s all nervous again so Viktor (being Viktor) is like *yo do you want something to drink* and Yuri just forgets everything that happened last year due to his nerves so he’s like *yeah sure* and then they both get drunk
and fuck and it’s even better than last year.
