Yuri On Ice: The Ship that keeps on giving...
I live for this moment. The noise he makes. The way his eyes dilate and he starts to blush a little bit. THE MOMENT YOU KNOW THAT HE IS CRAZY FOR THIS DRUNK JAPANESE BOY. I can’t. Kubo, you insane genius. I will never ship anything like I ship these two. That is just masterful story-telling. MASTERFUL. This is all I’ve ever wanted.
I’ve decided to stop speculating on what route these two will go down ..because it’s just so damn fun to see what Kubo brings us each week. It is genuine affection, mutual respect, small moments, physical closeness and just real love. It isn’t Hallmark and cliched. It is character development and trust. Two people are unraveling their old personalities to become better, more dynamic, the best versions of themselves. This is the shit that I came for and will stay for. Here we have a healthy
portrayal of a relationship that I have ever witnessed. And that just makes my heart sing. For couples everywhere of any gender, ethnicity, age, this is a love story for the ages. This is what I would show my non-existent kids when I want them to understand what a relationship can and should be. That physical affection is good and sex can be great, but as this quote says “Your naked body should only belong to those who fall in love with your naked soul.” Too often sex is portrayed as the “end all be all” of a relationship. If kissing is the first step, then sex is the last. The Final Stage, if you will. Why do we break our intimate relationships down into landmarks of the physical instead of the emotional? I want to have a relationship rooted in emotional intimacy, not physical intimacy. And shit if I don’t get my fill of it here.
Yuri and Victor hear music in each other’s souls and their bodies are the instruments they use to play that music.
