Author’s Summary

Yuuri forgets that he has a scheduled heat coming up until it’s just a couple weeks away. He scrambles to get everything ready in time, including deciding whether he’ll spend it alone or with someone. Victor only wants to help.

My Thoughts

So, being fairly new to the YoI fandom, I asked my tweeps for some Viktuuri fic recs, and a kind soul (I am so sorry I don’t remember who!) directed to me to this lovely 100K+ word fic. Since the fandom is so new, it’s a treasure to find such a long fic that is also so carefully thought out, and also has so much smut. I really appreciate the author’s carefully crafted explanation of this ABO society: those that omegas share a heat with are required to sign a contract, and everything must be negotiated beforehand. So, the things that get a little squicky to me in ABO fics, namely issues of consent, are pretty much avoided because of this thoughtful exposition.

Lastly, without revealing too many spoilers, this is a WIP that has 19 chapters, smutty smut smut, and Yuri’s heat hasn’t even begun yet. That’s right: the best is yet to come (pun intended). 

Read if you’re into ABO & ship Victuuri.
