i just saw ppl use the hug moment of a sign that victor is cold and using yuri asflklfk and also that when he followed yuri in episode 2 it was just to get dirt on him to sabotage him lmao why do people want to turn into a wangsty crappy anime so bad
Yuuri was so panicked, so scared, finally skating for his idol, for his future, for so much. He wants Victor to stay with him. He knows Victor is important to him.
Do you know how much courage it must have taken Yuuri to, basically, confess all of that to Victor? How hard that would be?
And instead of laughing it off or just being his normal heart-mouth self Victor TAKES IT SERIOUSLY. He knows that this means something to Yuuri and to just smile it off in these do-or-die moments where he still hasn’t chosen a winner, still doesn’t know what the outcome will be, would be RUDE TO YUURI.
And as soon the skate is over, as soon as he’s seen Yuuri’s Eros and been able to make a choice, when he knows he will stay here for Yuuri and that any indication of returned affection won’t just be causing more pain if he were to leave, Victor is there to greet him with open arms.
Because this is a serious moment and confession for Yuuri and a serious and thoughtful moment for Victor too.
As for following Yuuri to dig up info on him to use against him, I just… *rolls eyes* Okay.
