RACHEL RACHEL can you write a quick meta about that entire lip touching scene AND ALSO THE LEG/FOOT MOVEMENT THERE??? We were talking about it but I want it in words :')
This scene? This scene!!! I’m glad you asked!! Before we really get going, I’d like to try something. An experiment, if you will.
Let’s do a thought exercise, everyone. You’re watching something, a movie perhaps, and you see a man come up to a woman–close, less than six inches away. Too close for total strangers, too close for recent acquaintances, too close for friends who aren’t touchy. Too close to stand without closing the distance for something. He takes her by the chin, drags his thumb over her lower lip. His leg slides between hers, but they aren’t quite touching. She tilts her head up, lips parting at the press of his thumb. There’s a beat.
What happens next? They kiss, don’t they? Or maybe they get interrupted right before they close the little distance that remains between them? The girl blushes bright red, stutters out a reply. The boy is blissfully unconcerned. Sound familiar? (
I tried to find a gif of Yuri(o) yelling at them from the sidelines, but no dice. Suffice to say, they are interrupted.)
[I’ve added a readmore because this is really quite long. Sorry, everyone. There’s also a second gif, because I found one of Yuri(o) yelling at them.]
