when our stars collide - tattooedsiren
Mike has lived in New York all his life, so he's not unaccustomed to seeing famous people in real life. He once stood in line at a coffee shop behind Hugh Jackman. He saw Matt Damon at a restaurant once. One time he got into a cab that Anne Hathaway was exiting. He doesn't really get star struck. Except now apparently. Harvey Specter just walked into his shop and Mike's body is reacting, heart beating hard in his chest, breathing becoming more difficult.

Thankfully Mike is distracted from his minor freak out by someone attempting to rob him.

// or: Harvey is a famous actor who walks into the bookshop that Mike owns. [52,279 words]

Words Cannot Espresso How Much You Bean to Me - isthatbloodonhisshirt (wasterella)
“You’re late,” Derek informed him coldly, jaw clenched. He barely even moved his mouth to speak. This guy was seriously scary.

And because Stiles was suicidal, he said, “No, I’m Stiles.”

The look he got could’ve curdled milk. Stiles even noticed that Derek’s muscles were tensing, arms bulging even more and wow this guy was scary and hot but mostly scary holy shit.

“You’re not funny,” Derek informed him coldly.

Stiles shrugged. “I think that’s a matter of opinion.” [68,366 words]

To Have and to Hold - KouriArashi
"Yes, well, you see . . .” Deucalion cleared his throat again. “In an effort for authenticity, the writer used an actual binding ceremony in the script. The casting director, wanting to make sure it was pronounced correctly, found an actual shaman to perform it. He did so.”

“You – you mean – are you saying that Derek and I are actually married?” Stiles managed to squeeze out of his rapidly closing throat. [44,203 words]

Catfishing for Dummies - andquitefrankly
Eric Bittle hadn't planned on signing up for online dating. It was just something that had happened after a drunken night with his friends.

// Or, Jack is not a catfish, just a lonely hockey player looking for love, and Bitty is just the right guy to warm his cold, Canadian heart. [12,001 words]

Whatever Is, Is Good - Deepdarkwaters, Paxdracona
Harry Hart should not be allowed within fifty feet of tiny runty puppies because he loses all reason. When he finds an abandoned teacup schnauzer searching for food in the bins, he immediately decides he’s going to be its mother and brings it home to love forever. Obviously he doesn’t stop to consider the fact that he’s out of the country more often than not so all the actual looking after is going to fall on Merlin, who has a deep disdain for people who make their dogs wear clothes and thinks anything smaller than a wolfhound is basically a pointless rodent.

Meanwhile, Eggsy is floundering on probation after grassing up Dean and his thugs in return for escaping jail time for his part in all their previous criminal activity. Life is looking pretty bleak, no money and no prospects - until he meets a ridiculous eccentric couple and their amazing little dog, and is hired as its nanny.

// Contains deeply inappropriate use of the phrases "good boy", "bad boy", and "where’s your squeaky balls?"[22,123 words]

Stay - so_shhy
If Victor had listed important facts about himself, he’d have started with things like, ‘bestselling fantasy author,’ ‘great hair,’ ‘extrovert,’ ‘dog lover,’ and (if nobody else was listening) ‘lonely’.

Honestly, ‘a little bit psychic’ would have come pretty low down the list, even if he’d dreamed of actually telling anyone.

// Or: the one where Victor meets the ghost of a poodle. [12,579 words]

The one where Viktor Nikiforov is Gordon Ramsay - Eriskay

In the end, Viktor does end up coming along for dinner. There, he meets Yuuri Katsuki, a man with a special talent for finding just the right balance between different flavours, and a smile as sweet as meringue. [5,448 words]

you think my bruised knees are sort of pretty - fireblazie
He’s not entirely sure how long they stay there, staring awkwardly at each other, but it’s long enough that Yuuri feels compelled to break the silence, which never ends well.

“You’re shorter than I thought,” he blurts out.

At the same time, Viktor suddenly says, “I like your knees.”

“…thanks,” Yuuri says after an awkward pause.

// In which Yuuri gets drunk at a con, earns the nickname Cake Boy, and promptly forgets all about it. [4,775 words]

cute charm - crypsis
Now, the thing is that the pond on Route 102 isn’t much of a place for swimming. The entire area is rather uninhabited, save for the few young trainers fresh from home and the wild Pokémon that live there. People fish in the pond, but that’s about it. So when what is unmistakably a hand touches Yuuri’s foot, he’s not exactly at fault for screaming out loud and toppling into the water.
“What the—” he sputters, scrambling to grab onto Milotic while gripping the Ultra Ball tightly. “Who the hell—”
“Oh, sorry!” someone says from next to him. “I just wanted to tell you that you dropped a Pokéball.”
Yuuri turns, and his brain short-circuits.

// Yuuri's a tired but talented Pokémon researcher, and Viktor is the prodigal Champion who's a little in love. [41,871 words]

Dog People - stillmadaboutpetra
Yuuri thinks his life is progressing nicely. Good job. Nice apartment. Boyfriend? Nevermind: cheating ex boyfriend.

His blackout drunken antics attract the young Olympic-gold level skater, Victor Nikiforov, who's fled from skating in the middle of the season after fainting on the ice.

It all sounds very serendipitous but Yuuri wants nothing to do with men. Victor, desperate and running from his problems, promises that instead of a man, he'll be Yuuri's "pet" if that means he can stay with Yuuri for a little, down on his luck. Yuuri's concerned that this shameless man who is willing to sacrifice his dignity so readily will get himself in trouble, so he accepts the offer with second-hand embarrassment.

This gambit lasts for all of two days before Yuuri finds himself teaching an ice skater how to dance off his blades, and Victor starts finding new reasons to stay in Japan. [94,342 words]

Your Breath, My Skin - LavenderProse
"What did you do?" Yuuri mutters as Viktor takes off his coat and scarf.
Viktor's mouth moves soundlessly for a moment, then gestures for a pencil and pad. Yuuri yanks his way through several drawers and finally finds a grocery list pad and an old charcoal. He throws them in Viktor's direction and shuffles into the kitchen to turn the kettle on. Viktor tugs on his sleeve eventually, like a timid child, and Yuuri turns to see what he's written.
"A succubus?" Yuuri demands, teeth going on edge. "Viktor, oh my God. What did you do?"

// Or: Viktor needs to stop finding new and creative ways to get himself hexed. Yuuri is Suffering. [5,462 words]
