Michael Christian Martinez , the lone Philippine athlete at Sochi Winter Olympics for figure skating and the first for South East Asia. This kid is considered an underdog who came from a tropical country that has only 2 skating rinks and no permanent coach. I wish him luck.
Can’t tell if there is an actual minor league hockey team that could train at the same rink as Phichit and Yuri and also cannot decide if I care enough to work it out. Congrats Detroit u have a minor league team now. Less congrats they’re terrified worshippers of two short Asian figure skaters.
Can you do an in depth character arc and story analysis for Phichit the way you did for Chris??
Awww anon of course I can! Although I have to say, what I wrote about Chris was not really as in depth as it could have been, it was more me ranting about the aspects of his character that I wish we saw more of. I can go deeper. So I’m going to go deep with Phichit. Because hey if Chris is more than his ass, then Phichit is more than just a Victuuri shipper (and borderline stalker for some reason why fandom why) and more than just a social media maniac. Much more. In fact, narrative wise, Phichit would be the best choice for bronze at the GPF because he, like the Yu(u)ris, made history.
Now, Phichit is intrinsically connected to Yuuri as a character, considering his role as his best friend. Possibly because of that, he is one of the secondary characters that gets the most screen time and attention, if not the one we learn the most about. That said one of the best things about Phichit is that, while he is very closely connected to Yuuri in the narrative, he has his own goals and story. Truly, I think the basis of Phichit’s entire character is how passionate he is about both his friends and his country.
“Phichit Chulanont from Thailand. He won the Cup of China, becoming the first Southeast Asian figure skater to qualify for the Grand Prix Final, but I feel he’s also peerless when it comes to skillful selfies.”
