Yakov is also allowed to use Yuuri as a reward scheme for Victor. Wants Victor to turn up to practice on time? Says he can have an hour lunch break with Yuuri. Wants Victor to stick with the training programme instead of jumping too far ahead? Says Yuuri will be upset if he hurts himself. Wants Victor to stop trying to take over Yurio’s coaching? Says that Yuuri will be much more grateful if Victor focuses on only his.
When Yuuri started training in Russia, he got into a habit of making lunch for himself and Victor every day… Then he made lunch for Yurio whenever his Grandpa was too busy… Then Mila wanted some… Then Georgi got lunch so he didn’t feel left out… And now he makes it for Yakov too. Days Yuuri doesn’t turn up unexpectedly? The Russian skaters starve.
