VIKTOR IS SO SOFT HE JUST MELTS AS SOON AS YUURI SMILES AT HIM AND I’LL NEVER GET OVER IT
ALSO YUURI GAINING SO MUCH CONFIDENCE IN HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH VIKTOR and being comfortable asking for favors and speaking his own mind, compared to the first episodes where he was withdrawn and unable to trust his own decisions
it’s just the small things like this that makes their relationship so believable and endearing I love them so much they were meant to be ???? what did we do to deserve this utter display of love and goodness
VIKTOR IS SO HAPPY TO GO OUT WITH YUURI im crying
these two own my heart and these moments will never let me rest it’s too good to be true
Okay so I know that we were all swept away by the hand holding and the forehead touching (and I loved it too) but let me take a moment to show you all the things I loved about Victor and Yuuri’s relationship in episode 6 of YOI.
So let me start with what Victor says here because this is huge:
Because Yuuri always hid behind these metaphors (or personas or however you wish to call them) when skating Eros. He was always either pretending to be a katsudon (I lol, but I do find it cute) or a woman seducing the playboy - Victor. But he never skated Eros as himself. But Victor believes that now he can, now that he’s on the big stage, it’s time to let his theme of love bloom and shine and he can only do that as himself.
Ok but consider: the black lion doesn’t let Keith in. Not
because she (She? He? They?) doesn’t think Keith is worthy or anything, but
because she can tell Keith doesn’t want
to. Keith, of course, wants to honor Shiro’s request that he lead Voltron (even
though he really doesn’t want to). But
Black won’t let him in. Because two of the most important things you need to be
a leader? The willingness to lead, and a team willing to follow. And Keith isn’t
really willing to lead.
But, there is someone on Voltron who really wants to prove
himself a worthy part of the team. Lance. And the black lion senses this, and
so opens up to Lance. Lance, who is doubtful, but who also keeps a cool head
under pressure when it really counts. Lance, who is willing to do anything to
prove his worth, unless it jeopardizes the team, the mission. Lance, who was
the head of the Garrison team, who can be a leader, who is willing to lead.
And so Black choses Lance. Keith stays in Red, and Allura
And when they rescue Shiro, at first he’s all ‘great job
Keith’ and Keith just says ‘no. That was Lance.’ And Shiro is shocked because
this near flawless rescue/decimating a good chunk of the Galra forces came from
Lance. So he goes up to Lance and tells him ‘great job leading, that was an amazing
plan. I’m proud of you, Lance.’ And Lance, precious thing, smiles that soft,
