hcs of grimmjow trying really hard to be romantic (and probs failling lmao) after screwing up? like, he forgot an important date, insulted s/o without noticing, etc.
Grimmjow and romantic do not belong in the same paragraph; unless there is a not in there somewhere lmao. I feel I need to justify? is that the word I want?? why these are going to be the way they are so the first few bullets are more about how I personally feel he would be in a relationship, if you could call it that. I feel like I need to explain my absence but like… I have so I won’t bore you with the same-but-different explanation here.
Grimmjow is shitty boyfriend–maybe a tad NSFW
It’s worth noting I don’t think Grimm would ever really put a label on a relationship. He likes to think he isn’t tied down and the more you push for a label the more he pulls away. You just kinda have to figure out where you stand by yourself–which is, undoubtedly, frustrating.
A relationship to you is different to him. He more or less expects you to know you can’t be with anyone else and will frequently call you his. But never his girlfriend. It’s always more a ‘back off she’s mine.’He only really acknowledges his attachment to you as possessive behaviour. But he expects his partner to do most of the work in a relationship.
He won’t talk about ‘problems’ and he doesn’t buy you flowers. He teases you and grabs you; or tells you that you’re his and no one else’s. So if you are expecting a romantic boyfriend who takes you on dates under the stars or sakura trees, you’re in for a lot of disappointment. He isn’t romantic, not one romantic bone in his body. Romance is a human thing and he just doesn’t understand it.
That said he can become deeply attached to someone and he will (internally) recognise that he doesn’t want to be without them. He won’t ever admit though. So he does feel genuinely guilty when he greatly upsets them because ‘oh shit she might leave me.’ He honestly thinks they could do better than him and that can scare him sometimes; so he will try to make it up. But it isn’t really romantic in the conventional sense. And he gets like really awkward.
Okay so we are going with he insulted his S/O because he isn’t a date kinda guy–especially not a planned date kinda guy. On a positive note, all ‘dates’ are spontaneous so he doesn’t stand you up.
He probably called you an idiot or fat or insulted something he knew–he fucking knew–you were insecure about. He wanted the upper hand in a argument and he went for it; now you’re angry and crying all at once and can only utter the broken word ‘leave’
That’s when he knew he fucked up
But he couldn’t stay, there’s no way you would let him after what he just said. For a moment he hated himself. Hated himself so much for his lack of self control and narcissistic nature. He’ll try to justify his actions for hours–and fail. Until he finally realises, walking in the rain along some dingy back alley of town, that he was wrong. And he might lose you.
So he calls, he texts. He tries to get a hold of you. You’re ignoring him or sleeping. He can’t be sure but he doesn’t have a key and doesn’t really want to break in because that would make it worse so he goes to Ichigo’s. The only person he thinks might be able to help him.
Ichigo is shocked obvs, but he tries to help. Grimm leaves in the morning hell bent on making things right.
He buys flowers. Nice flowers. And you’re favourite snack. He considers buying you a puppy–he disregards the thought. He doesn’t like dogs. And he has his speech all planned out in his head. He’s going to sweep you off your feet.
Except he doesn’t. He returns home, clothes wrinkled with his flowers and snacks and knocks, determinedly, on the door.
You answer, hair a mess, a giant over sized T-shirt on. Your eyes had been red and puffy from crying; and you are looking directly at him.
He chokes and forgets what he was going to say. He starts stuttering and mumbling. He can’t put his words together so he just shoves the offending flowers and food at you. You think you heard an ‘I’m sorry’ and ‘stupid flowers’ but you can’t be sure.
When you’re thoughts are finally collected you let him in to talk about it. Still shell-shocked over the flowers and attempted romanticism.
we need to take a moment to appreciate how viktor nikiforov, inventor of being extra, completely misread yuuri and was firmly believing he would get laid on night one
first, yuuri basically barges into the room where viktor is minding his business and relaxing after his long travel
so he just sees that like: oh great! so you’re just as eager for this as i am? better bless you with a display of my hot bod yuuri i can’t stop thinking about you since the banquet i’m desperate
then all we know is that yuuri screams (same tbh) and then we get this bit of information on the next episode:
so they barely spoke??? yuuri fainted and woke up when viktor was napping??? we’ll never know
but then viktor wakes up, exuding extra realness:
VIKTOR YOU LITERALLY JUST HAD DINNER YOU JUST SLEEP AND EAT HOW DO YOU EVEN MAINTAIN THAT PERFECT BODY
or maybe it’s just hungry for dick which all things considered is a possibility
sO WHILE HE GETS HIS HUNGER SATED HE JUST ROASTS OUR BEST BOY
ouch, vitya, that was harsh??? but it’s also important to remember we get a lot of examples that show viktor isn’t really savvy when it comes about reading people and that he’s capable of delivering harsh truths with a hear-shapped smile on his face
BUT NO!!! YA BOY VITYA IS NOT DONE, as soon as they get some alone time he tries to drop some questionable hints
oh yuuri i’m so sorry i had to be like that earlier, i’m just going for angry coach on the streets, passionate lover in the sheets
AND YET VIKTOR IS JUST LIKE “NAH IT’LL BE FINE HE’S JUST PLAYING SHY/HARD TO GET THERE’S NO WAY TO REFUSE THIS HOT SLAV BODY” AND HE FIRMLY BELIEVES YUURI WILL GO FULL HOMO WITH HIM THAT SAME NIGHT
HE EVEN BRINGS HIS PILLOW I LOVE THIS MAN SO MUCH??
if anything viktor nikiforov is a symbol of perseverance and has unshakeable confidence in what he does, bless him
