Summary: Everyone has a guilty pleasure. For Yuuri, it just happens to be romance movies starring famous heartthrob Victor Nikiforov. (And, honestly, on the spectrum of guilty pleasures, he figures that his is on the far, far more innocent side.)

Victor is a famous romance actor whom Yuuri, still a figure skater in this universe, has a crush on. Phichit Chulanont signs Yuuri up to audition to be Victor's trainer for a new movie about figure skating. Yuri Plisetsky is also an actor working on the film.

The fic was translated into Spanish

AU where Victor is the the most famous actor in Hollywood and Yuuri is a silver medalist at this year’s GPF… and also has a huge crush on Victor. Yuuri auditions to become his skating coach for a movie with the help of Pitchit and cuteness ensues. Fun, great writing, good plot. Lots of fluff, some angst, and a little bit of smut. Amazing fic![2]
Hollywood AU in which Victor is an actor who has to learn how to skate for a movie and Yuuri, his fan and a GPF silver medal, is his coach - so fluffy and funny and a little angsty as well. (I love everything by braveten fyi)[3]
