End of the Line
They keep asking
if she wants to move home,
sleep in her childhood bed again.
Even bring all her pets
to stay by her side.
From the dark corners
of her mind
she doesn't like thinking from
this sounds like an admission
that she can't win this time.
And it didn't seem real
until then.
Until someone else
that possibility.
Maybe she should be afraid.
But here she is,
just tired,
measuring potential time
based on projects
she may not get to complete.
Would she recognise
the end of the line
when she finally reached it?

First Olympics
South Korea… 2018… Yuuri couldn’t believe he was actually here. He stood to one side, trying to stay out of everyone’s way while still remaining in sight so could find him when he got here.
It was a few minutes later when Victor arrived, and he wasn’t alone… He was carrying Aina, their 7-month-old daughter. Aina looked as if she was perfectly at home surrounded by this many people, staring around the registration room with round, curious eyes.
Yuuri’s mouth dropped open.
“What is she doing here?” he hissed, hurrying over to them both. He gave Aina a quick forehead kiss, then glared at Victor. “She’s barely old enough to travel… She only just had her first set of immunisations last month!”
Victor was visibly unconcerned. “I’m your coach and she’s our daughter - of course she had to come! I couldn’t leave her behind with someone else looking after her when I promised her she would see he

Lost in Translation
Mila and Georgi had joined Yuuri and Victor for a rare joint lunchtime during practice when Yuuri finally felt brave enough to try out the newly learned Russian phrases he had been working on learning in his spare time. The last he had seen Yuri was still rink-side, no doubt being berated by Yakov for Face-Timing Otabek while he was meant to be warming up for practice with the rest of them. But the brusque teen not being there actually made him feel a little less pressure for this.
Gesturing to the leftover borscht he and Victor had both brought to eat, Yuuri cleared his throat carefully said “Knut i tsepi vozbuzhdayut menya”. And waited.
Everyone present choked. Which was definitely not the reaction he had hoped for, let alone anticipated.
Mila and Georgi refused to meet his eyes. Thankfully Victor was able to meet his gaze, though the look he returned was decidedly closed. “What do you think ‘Knut i tsepi vozbuzhdayut menya’ means, Yuuri?” he asked

Growing Pains
"Yuri... What happened out there?"
The teenager visibly stiffened, but otherwise ignored the Japanese skater. Yuuri was used to this, so decided to proceed anyway. But not without caution. He paused where he stood on the other side of the room from Yuri, trying to carefully choose words that would be least likely to trigger throwing of objects. But it was the younger skater who spoke first.
"Congrats on your marriage."
Yuuri could only blink stupidly. "What?"
"You finally won gold. You can get married now."
"I... yes", Yuuri conceded, not sure where the Yuri was going with this. "But probably not just yet. We haven't talked about it much yet, but we were thinking about waiting until we've both retired. When things aren't so chaotic, you know?"
Yuri scoffed.
"What, you think our lives aren't chaotic now?" Yuuri asked, grinning and leaning back against the wall of lockers.
"Your's aren't." Yuri's words were barely audible, but still made Yuuri freeze.
"Your lives. Your's and Vict

"So, now that it's all official, when do we get to meet your family, Victor?", Yuuri's sister Mari asked. This was probably as close to excited as Victor had ever seen her, her voice certainly lacking her usual bored overtones. "Please tell me there's a chance I could still get a sister-in-law? I'd just about lost hope of that ever happening when it became clear Yuuri wasn't bringing anyone home with him, let alone a girl!"
"Mari-chan!", Yuuri hissed, blushing red. But to Yuuris surprise- and everyone else's - Victor's cheeks also flushed with colour.
"Ah, well... In Russia, it's not unusual for athletes to be identified at a young age and, er, taken away to be trained. When I was found I was placed with Yakov as my full-time coach. But i guess he sort of ended up being like father to me, too. I was quite young when I was, uh, spotted by Figure Skating Federation of Russia, you see."
He took another bite of his meal before glancing up at a now silent Mari, who appeared to have frozen i

So I got my dream job, and in my home city, and straight out of university. It turns out the graduate programme I got into is actually ranked number one in the country – I actually had no idea, I just went for this one as my first choice because it is in my home city and is one of only two places in the country that offer the specialty I’ve wanted to get into for the longest time. I’ve been there for a few months now, and I love it. Don’t get me wrong, it is HARD, some days more than others. But working with children with cancer feels like the life work I have been steered towards from a young age. And I am going to get there, step by step. Because it’s all about the little steps in paediatric oncology – it’s such a complicated specialty, and to get into it straight out of university without having had a placement there in person previously is almost unheard of. I only know of one other who did this. 

First day being introduced: “Eep, she’s so little and cute!”. I was so confused, as I am no longer underweight and am not really THAT short (am I?). “How old are you?” “23.” Awww, cute! You’re just a baby!”. Well okay then. :D

I’ve sort of taken to seeing my first year here as a first year at Hogwarts. I feel like a cross between Neville Longbottom and Harry Potter – Neville because there’s so much I don’t know and I feel so clumsy trying to navigate this professional world with undeveloped skills, and Harry because I’m returning to a world I was once part of a long time ago but now hardly remember and am somewhat of a stranger to again. I feel really clumsy and blind with a lot of my knowledge and practice, but the other day a consultant I was working with said that he saw me as the most promising one and with the largest potential he’d seen in a longtime. Time will tell, but I am determined to keep going and prove wrong anyone who doubts me.

Lots of things are shocking in pediatric oncology, but sometimes it is what staff say to cope that catch me off guard the most. I hadn't heard that side of things in this world until now. I was talking about how cute a patient had been to me at the end of the day, getting me to come over so he could pet me cheeks and give me a goodbye kiss on my forehead. “Yeah… He’s probably going to die.” My fellow programme new entrant and I looked at each other with wide eyes. “The nice kids always die.” Oh. A senior nurse behind her looked at me and mimed ripping a central line out. “Yeah, that’s when we knew you were going to live” she said really quietly. I had to excuse myself and go have one of those weird over-emotionally laughing moments in the drug room while trying not to cry.

There's also a student here with us who says things like "I can't talk on the phone, everyone's listening and I'll sound funny" and "It's all so hard, all the things we are expected to do, how am I going to get through it all?". And while I talk it through with her ways to get through all the hard things and just keep going despite what others must be thinking, inside I'm just thinking "Yeah, just try me, you don't know half the stuff I've overcome to get here and all the things I can now do that people said I wouldn't be able to no matter how much I tried". 

But I think the strongest thing I have heard said here is a parent saying “I’m not worried about having to stay here for at least another 12 months. We’re just happy they think she will still be here [alive] time next year.”

My boyfriend and I have been talking about when we are going to officially move in together next year. We have lived together before, but I have always had my own room to go back to, so it didn’t seem official. As with all post-natural-disaster cities, both renting and owning housing is expensive here. But every now and then we joke and dream about our ideal place to live. The bunnies could be free range inside but with room to roam outside on their harness long leads. And there could be a small room for my “functional study/work mess” that for now is located on my room floor so I am reminded of it and have to deal with it when I get up each day. And I would be able to set up my fish tank again. It turns out it is ideal in volume and shape for a dwarf puffer (solitary as they are) and some apple snails. Little dreams like this seem so domestic, but they do feel bliss and remind me that the future is bright and promising in lots of ways despite other things happening.

Even when you're gone
Somehow you come along
Just like a flower poking the sidewalk crack and just like that
You steal away the rain and just like that

You make me smile like the sun
