Sightseeings

I JUST FOUND THIS INCREDIBLY ADORABLE.

YOU SEE, YUURI SUGGESTED FOR SOME SIGHTSEEING BECAUSE HE WANTED TO FIND THE APPROPRIATE “CHARM”/GIFT TO REPAY VICTOR.

Look how like he’s always looking for something…

And the when Victor suggest for them to return home, he looks so reluctant to go back. WELL OF COURSE HE STILL HASN’T FOUND ANYTHING.

AND THEN THIS CONFIRMS IT FOR ME….

VICTOR KNOWS THAT FACE…

HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT THE OTHER BOY IS LOOKING FOR BUT HE KNOWS IT MIGHT BE IMPORTANT, SO HE JUST FOLLOWS ALONG.

OF COURSE, HE’S LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO GIVE TO THAT ONE SPECIAL PERSON.

AND THEN HE FINALLY FINDS IT.

TWO PAIR OF PERFECT GOLDEN ENGAGEMENT RINGS.

Earlier in the episode when Yuuri checking insta, he saw this…

Then he contemplated his speech about his theme, and the camera pans to this…

And when he went sightseeing with Victor, he looked like he’s looking for something from the start.

Then he found a jewelry store. So, from this shot, one ring costs about 400 EUR, I think… But the receipt is 768.94 EUR, so like… about 2 rings with discount? ?

Also, it’s said Passeig de Gracia, which is 10 mins walking to the Cathedral of Barcelona. They have to walk from the store to the cathedral. Victor’s face must be interesting.

So… Yuuri being highstrung and insisted to do sightseeing despite Victor’s recommendation to rest… is because this B O I is on a mission to get rings for Victor and himself (because Hasetsu doesn’t have fine jewelry maker I think). 

This makes me wonder if the continuation of this monologue (his “decision”) isn’t about him leaving Victor or Victor leaving him…

But about how he’s gonna stay by Victor’s side no matter what happens… it doesn’t have to be a coach-student relationship. He’s going to give Victor the skater back to the world, but he’s keeping Victor the man to himself. 

By marrying him, I guess…? ??

And so, I’m still crying.

Wonderful things in YOI ep 10

-Victor and Chris’s fabulous almost nude pool photoshoot
-The fact that Yuuri’s gotten so much more comfortable in his relationship with Victor that he’s just like “Victor take me sightseeing NOW” and looks at him extra cutely like he knows he’s gonna get what he wants
-Yuuri and Victor basically going on a little sightseeing date around Barcelona
-Otabek SWOOPING IN ON HIS MOTORBIKE to save Yurio from his fangirls
-Yurio and Otabek being weird grumpy buddies because they apparently hate everyone else
-Yuuri buying Victor couple rings and then coming up with the flimsiest fucking excuse ever like “It’s not a couple thing it’s just…a good luck charm!! I couldn’t think of anything else it just popped into my head no deeper meaning definitely not madly in love with you no sir!”
-The fact that Yuuri and Victor were both like trembling and tearing up when they exchanged their “good luck rings”
-Phichit seeing the rings and automatically assuming that Victuuri got married like everyone was expecting it already (but tbh half the skaters probably have been rooting for Victuuri since the banquet where Yuuri got smashed)
-Victor taking the couple rings thing up a notch by casually making them engagement rings ok then Victor
-YUURI’S DANCEOFF WITH YURIO AND POLE-DANCEOFF WITH CHRIS
-Guanghong and Leo are trying to watch the Grand Prix live stream together my heart
-Yeorgi has a date I’m so happy for him!!!!! Maybe he’ll stop doing interpretive skating about murdering his ex now!


Ok this is probably my very favorite part of the episode.
-Drunk Yuuri shamelessly begging his long time idol to move to Japan and become his coach and Victor looking at this sloppy drunk boy clinging to him and looking like he’s just had a fucking religious revelation.

They exchanged rings... and I died, but...

 I know every YOI blog and the next one are posting the ring exchange scene and I really love it, but what I love more is the scene at the jewelry shop and the scene before that.

Just before they enter the jewelry Yuuri was thinking what to give Viktor as a birthday gift, and I really think all the “Lets go sightseeing” is a way for Yuuri to lookfor a gift for Viktor.

He knows that Viktor’s b-day is around the corner and he wants to take the opportunity to get him something nice.

Even Viktor knows that Yuuri is acting OOC, and here we see Yuuri looking for something…

Then they run to do more shopping, a few hours later they come back looking for the missing bag of nuts and after they continue shopping. At this point Yuuri hasn’t found something appropriate to give to Viktor and is getting late, so he ask what he wants

But since Viktor has been neglecting his life up until this moment, he doesn’t care much for his birthday. So Yuuri is left alone to decide what to give Viktor, and he knows he wants something meaningful, something that express all he feels for him, and then he sees the jewelry and has an epiphany of what exactly he needs to express all his feelings, and he blushes because he understands the repercussions of this gift, but at this point he is ready to face them

and so we got the cute scene of Yuuri shopping his wedding ring

and Viktor is baffled, maybe because he cannot believe it, maybe he thought he would be the one to do something like this first, but his Yuuri has grown so much… maybe he remembers the bold Yuuri from one year ago…

and then, the exchange… and someone else pointed out that Yuuri only bought ONE RING, is a gift for Viktor, to show his feelings for him, but…

Viktor also bought one, because he feels the same.

This couple is going to kill me, I’m sure of it…

Just look how they walk hugging each other….

LOVE WINS!!

things that happened in episode ten of yuri on ice:
  • viktor implies that yuri is his first real love and that his life has been improved so much with yuri in it
  • to the point now that the ocean doesn’t remind him of russia anymore, but hasetsu, his home w/yuri
  • viktor and yuri have a super cute sightseeing date trip together around barcelona, which is lovely
  • yuri literally buys a pair of gold engagement rings (can you believe???) that he can’t even afford outright for him and viktor as a ‘lucky charm’
  • (i’m just thinking, when yuri was asking viktor about his birthday and christmas, he was just looking for a good excuse to give him this gift he’s clearly been thinking abt for a while. i’m gonna-)
  • they go to a church together and lovingly slip the rings onto each other’s fingers, looking sappy and so happy
  • they walk off with their arms around each other’s shoulders for dinner
  • yuri doesn’t deny that the rings represent his ‘engagement’ to viktor and lowkey rolls with the idea that they’d get married after the gp final (again, can you believe????)
  • and then we get the ending credits (can i just say - what a concept! love the way they did it with all of the photos like the regular credits)…… drunk yuri is quite the mover and shaker. expert, sexy pole dancer. mad hip hop dancer.
  • and Most. Importantly. Of. All. he is the one who approaches viktor and dances with him, taking the lead and puttin on a whole load of charm
  • he literally GRINDS on viktor and throws his arm round his neck, begging him to be his coach
  • and viktor blushes and gasps bc, by god, the boy is smitten with this japanese twenty-something who completely flunked in competition
  • viktor!! the guy who’s meant to be the charming, suave, worldly, experienced one, the guy whom yuri has idolised his entire skating career, is the one who fell for yuri!
  • to reiterate: yuri seduced viktor a whole freaking year before the main narrative begins
  • and this just.. changes everything. viktor being so forward with yuri and wanting to be so physical was just him trying to subtly eek out the yuri he fell for at last year’s banquet. viktor choosing eros for yuri? literally just wanted to see him be sexy again. this whole damn time has been viktor falling more and more for yuri and trying to see his feelings reciprocated (which is happening lil by lil, like a slow-cooked roast)
  • throw me in the bin tbh because my sons are so good together and in love
OTP Idea #684

Person A and B have been planning a fancy, romantic vacation at a nice hotel with sightseeing, but their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, so they spend their allotted vacation time at a dingy motel in a small town, and having a blast just being together. Afterwards, they both agree it was the best vacation they ever took.

I usually don’t write my thoughts but I’m too overwhelmed with feels after YOI episode 10 so I just wanted to get them out my system: 

Keep reading

i know everyone thinks that phichit was just being a supportive bro but when he blurted out that his good friend yuri just got married, but

like i think my dude has been harboring a crush on yuri for a very long time and suddenly realized he was far too late all in one moment and panicked

remember that phichit was trying to get yuri to go sightseeing with him and disappointed that he wasn’t responding to his phone calls

remember that phichit was very good friends with yuri and the only one from the competitive figure skating world that yuri got close to before viktor

i know it’s easy to just act like everyone else is fodder for the main couple but wow it would be nice if people acknowledged the possibility that phichit likes yuri and isn’t just the 100% supportive bro meme that everyone wants

i’m not saying it’s completely confirmed that phichit has/had a crush on yuri, but it would be nice if the SE Asian darker skinned character’s very possibility of even having liked him wasn’t erased

things i love about this episode:

- viktor offering to take nudes for the second time this season

- an excessive but absolutely necessary amount of selfies of phichit

- viktor trying to be a good coach and yuuri saying “fuck that let’s go sightseeing” and viktor agreeing

- yuri being chased by fans and otabek just fuckin swoops in on a motorcycle?? and carries him away??? it’s like a bad spy movie except it’s perfect

- yuri and otabek; aka the brotp i didn’t know i needed until now

- the writers slipped in the bit about russians not really celebrating christmas and idk that’s pretty cool that they added a tiny factoid like that

- yuuri running to what is OBVIOUSLY A JEWELRY STORE AND GIVING ME A GODDAMN HEART ATTACK whoever storyboarded and wrote that knew exactly what they were doing 

- “good luck charm”

- “”””good luck charm””””

- promise rings

- which they took extra care to animate throughout the entire rest of the episode

- which they fucking made an entire scene about where the other characters pointed them out

- awkward family dinner starring drunk yuuri

- PHICHIT BEING A HAPPY BEST FRIEND AND CONGRATULATING THEM ON THEIR MARRIAGE

- AND THEN TELLING THE ENTIRE GODDAMN RESTAURANT ABOUT IT I LOVE HIM

- “you’ve all got the wrong idea! it’s an engagement ring”

- also viktor being a socially inept idiot and bringing up a gold medal in front of a table full of ice skaters 

- viktor narrating the entire episode like some cheesy guy from a dreamworks movie

- that tiny montage of skaters who didn’t make it at the end broke my fucking heart

- the end credits
