I'm curious to hear your thoughts on something I've been mulling over: Victor is, for the most part, friendly or ambivalent towards the other competitors in the GPF with one notable exception - J.J. He is uncharacteristically icy towards him, and other than J.J. being a bit obnoxious, I'm wondering what your thoughts are on why else that may be.

At the Rostelecom Cup Short Program, we do indeed see Victor being rather icy with JJ.

Just look at Victor’s face in that screencap. It’s very rare to see him react like that to anyone. 

But let’s put this into perspective of what just happened at Yuuri’s last competition in China.

Victor remembers Yuuri’s struggles at the Cup of China. He forced Yuuri not to listen to the cheering for the other competitors because of how much it got to him.

Now think about what JJ is saying to Yuuri at the Rostelecom Cup. “Hey, take those earplugs out. Did you HEAR that?? Your fellow competitor just landed a quad loop.”

Now, I don’t think JJ is doing this maliciously, but Victor isn’t going to care.

He’s going to care about how Yuuri will react to JJ drawing his attention to the success of other competitors.

JJ doesn’t catch on. He keeps going by drawing more and more attention to a jump that Yuuri can’t even do himself. (He can do a quad toe loop but not a quad loop.)

Victor shuts JJ down here. He downplays his own ability to do a jump that Yuuri can’t and discourages further conversation on the subject.

Victor’s reaction is basically: “I swear to god, if you send my boyfriend into a panic attack right now, you are going to regret the day you were born.”

anonymous asked:

friend, will you finish winter song/falling? I love it so much and I need closure

Yes, and yes! Falling will be updated soon. I’ll need another week or so to finish editing it because it is a monster.

(I don’t know why I felt like I couldn’t split this story up into smaller chapters, but it’s too late to stop now. So get ready for a small novella of an update.)

Hopefully the word count will make up for the delay.

We know Yuuri's favorite food is katsudon, but have they ever mentioned Victor's favorite food? If not, what do you think it is? Not really a deep question, I'm just desperate for more details.

I’ve always seen Victor as a bit of a foodie!

While his favorite food is never specified, I can’t think of anything else that brings out Victor’s heart-shaped mouth more!

We see Victor eating quite a bit in the show. Katsudon at the onsen, going for ramen by himself, pulling Yuuri away from interviews so they can go eat hot pot.

My head-canon is that he doesn’t have a favorite food. He just enjoys eating and trying new and exciting things.

I always thought this scene in Episode Two was funny.

We see him napping at the beginning of the episode, and there are used dishes already on the table. He’s obviously been eating.

And judging from the amount of dishes on the table, it was a decent amount of food.

Looks like multiple courses, too. Or at least a variety of dishes.

But when Victor wakes up, the first thing he does is mention how hungry he is and look around for more. Then he scarfs an extra-large katsudon like he’s never seen a meal in his life.

Pretty sure it’s canon that this boy likes to eat.

anonymous asked:

Was it ever said by the creator that yuuri and viktor are actually in love or is that just fan based?

Do the YOI creators need to directly state they’re in love?

I don’t think so. They’ve made it clear in the way they draw these two characters together. Just…look at how tender Victor and Yuuri are with one another.

I’m curious what other context these drawings could have? I certainly don’t look at my friends like that. Or buy them wedding rings. Or kiss their hand.

Victuuri is canon.

anonymous asked:

I get what you're saying but there are still a lot of people who think the kiss was only a hug.

Okay, while I’m all for letting people interpret things as they please, let’s consider a few things here. You know…for science.

Please measure the distance between Victor and Yuuri’s lips in the screencap above. Would you agree that they’re about the same distance apart as…say, maybe the width of one of their eyes? Maybe even a little less? The average human eyeball is about an inch across, or 2.5 centimeters.

Which means Victor and Yuuri’s lips are literally 2.5 cm away from each other.

That’s about the same length as one of the joints of your index finger.

Now please do me a favor and find a friend. Make sure it’s a platonic relationship so that you can really get a feel for what this would be like if Victor and Yuuri are indeed just friends.

Go up to this friend and put your mouth 2.5 cm away from theirs and see what happens. Does that feel like the beginning of a hug, or do you literally feel the heat from their breath and skin? Is your friend looking at you like “Oh boy, a hug!” or “Oh hey, I didn’t know you were into me like this”? I’m guessing the latter.

But wait. Our experiment isn’t done.

Now try this same thing while running full speed toward your no-homo-buddy-pal. Try to get that same 2.5 cm of distance between your lips and theirs, and see if it’s physically possible to move your mouth out of the way at the last possible second before you crash-kiss right into their lips.

Go on. Try it.

It’s for science.

I’ll wait.

anonymous asked:

What pet names do you think Victor and Yuuri give each other?

My personal head-canon is that Victor calls Yuuri by nicknames often.

He mixes them up and never settles on just one. He calls Yuuri everything under the sun that’s sweet or romantic or just plain adorable. Traditional romantic nicknames like “sweetheart” or “my love” - or funny, cute ones like “my little katsudon.” It changes with the situation. If they’re cooking pancakes, then Yuuri is “my sweet little blinchik.” If they’re outside together on a pleasant day, then Yuuri’s nickname becomes “my sunshine.” Anything that makes Victor happy - that’s what he calls Yuuri.

“My Yuuri” is a particular favorite. My head-canon is that Yuuri likes it when Victor uses the word “my” before any nickname.

Yuuri, on the other hand, typically calls Victor by his first name.

I’ve always found it interesting that in the anime, he never calls him “Coach Victor” or “sensei” like we see him call Celestino and Minako. Yuuri has always made it clear to Victor that he wants him to always be himself. I also don’t think Yuuri would ever use the word “my” in front of a nickname, even though he likes it when Victor does it to him.

I think when Yuuri just calls him “Victor,” it’s his way of saying, “I don’t expect you to be anything other than who you are.” And to someone like Victor, who has always felt pressure to change himself for a difficult-to-please audience, having Yuuri love him for just being “Victor” is pretty damn amazing.

But I also think Victor really likes nicknames, so Yuuri does use them from time to time. Always in private. His nicknames for Victor are meant for his ears only. Yuuri will sometimes call him “Vitya” or “Vicchan,” but under the right circumstances, he’ll call Victor something really special.

Maybe something quiet whispered in his ear when they hug each other after a long day. Like “beautiful.”

And Victor just freaking melts. 

anonymous asked:

So my struggle is that I’ve kinda lost interest in YOI and I’m not sure how to get back into it. Most of the fanfics are just alternate universes that I can’t get into. I miss the old fanfics that were just canon based. I was always afraid that the YOI craze would end and I’m just sad.

Alas, this lull inevitably happens to every fandom. I’ve been feeling down myself about it recently because people just don’t seem to be as excited anymore. And well…I can understand why. It’s been more than a year since the movie was announced, and we don’t even have the slightest hint about a release date yet.

There was just something so special about this place when the anime was still airing. I’ve never seen a fandom so passionately in love with the source material. Those days were magical!

(Remember when Episode 7 first aired???)

But here’s the thing.

It’s up to us to nurture the YOI fandom.

All of us - whether you’re an author or reader, artist or reblogger - can do our part to keep the excitement alive.

Write the fanfic you want to read. Make the art you want to see. If you don’t write or draw, send prompts to the authors and artists who do. Ideas are incredibly appreciated!

Get active! Write meta. Organize fandom events. Plan a rewatch of the show with live-blogging. Make fic recommendation posts. Learn Japanese and start tearing apart the English translations we all think we know. Analyze screencaps. Redraw them. Dig into the #tags and see how far back you can go. Go back in time on your own blog and see how your thoughts about the anime have evolved.

Reblog art, fic, and meta. Don’t just “like” posts. SPREAD THEM. Tell people about YOI. Rewatch it with them and enjoy their surprise. Watch episode reaction videos on YouTube to help you remember what it felt like to be excited about the show. 

Take a chance on a fic you think might not be what you’re looking for. I’ve found some amazing gems by forcing myself to get past that initial “meh” reaction. I never thought I’d like reading a western, but The Other Side of Sunset is one of the best damn fics in this fandom. And not nearly enough people have read it. If people read the same kind of thing over and over again without exploring new authors or genres, it’s no wonder they get bored. Try something new! 

Take care of fandom creators. One chapter of fic can sometimes take a writer weeks of work, and they do it for free. Thank them. Leave kudos, write comments, make playlists, find them on tumblr, send asks, make fanart. Creators need positive feedback. I’ve lost track of the amount of times I’ve seen someone stop writing or making art because they think no one cares. When someone works that hard at something and receives only cold silence as a reward, why on earth would they want to waste more time on a fandom that doesn’t support them? It’s soul-crushing. 

Authors - respond to your comments. Thank your readers for giving you a chance and offering their support. They need to feel appreciated, too!

Stop listing out the things you hate seeing in fic and art. Keep your pet peeves to yourself. Writers and artists see those blog posts, and it discourages and shames them. Then they stop creating. Is it really that important to get a passive aggressive jab in?

STOP FIGHTING. Shipper wars split fandoms down the middle. The more that people leave, the quieter it gets. Don’t let anything diminish your joy for the things you love. Go find friends who share that love and don’t spread hate, even if hate comes knocking at your door. Block the offender and move on with your life. I promise you’ll be in a better mood if you choose to be the bigger person. 

I can’t stress this enough. The fandom needs ALL of you to keep it going.

No matter how many followers, notes, or kudos you have. No matter if you’ve been here since day 1 or joined the fandom today. WE NEED YOUR PASSION.

And you know what?

If you’ve done all those things to rekindle your love for YOI, and you’re still not feeling it…well, for the sake of your mental health, that’s okay, too. Try new fandoms! Read books, watch a new show, close the computer and go for a walk.

The important thing is to enjoy yourself! Because the YOI fandom is still going to be here when the movie comes out, and we’ll be excited to see you if and when you return!

I know I’m certainly not going anywhere! You guys are stuck with me.

trottingalongthelines  asked:

In YOI episode 3 when Yurio is about to start his program and Yuuko is freaking out over his costume, why is Victor shown as if he's in deep thought? Or just why was the clip shown in the first place? I feel like they wouldn't have put it there just because, but I cant figure out what it's significants is..Do you know why?

I love episode 3.

It’s one of my favorites. There are so many interesting character moments to analyze, and this is one of them. 

There are several potential interpretations you could apply to this scene.

Yuri is scowling as he’s warming up to perform “Agape” - which is not Agape-like behavior. Victor could be thinking “Well, I guess he hasn’t tapped into the concept of Agape after all…” 

If you notice earlier in the episode, we see Victor looking at Yuri much the same way - particularly right before he sends him off to the waterfall. Victor is not seeing what he wants in Yuri’s demeanor.

You could also speculate that Victor might see a younger version of himself in Yuri, who is standing there in Victor’s costume from his junior years.

But here’s another theory…

anonymous asked:

So how do we know that the banquet scene that Victor actually fell for Yuri there at that point? Because yeah his eyes sparkled but I thought that was down to him having an epiphany like "omg yes that's a great idea! I can coach for a year!" What do you think??🤔

While I don’t think Victor could have possibly fallen in love with someone he didn’t know, I do think he was swept off his feet by Yuuri at the banquet.

Look how much fun Victor’s having in that picture!

And yeah … I’m still not over these two dorks doing the bull/matador thing with each other. 

Note that Yuuri is still dressed in these pictures, which means that he didn’t ask Victor to be his coach until after they danced together. (Later, he wasn’t wearing pants and his tie relocated to a much nerdier place.)

I think at the banquet, Victor sees something exciting and new in Yuuri.

It’s not love, but it’s a spark of attraction. I think it’s obvious from Victor’s behavior at the beginning of Season 1 that he developed quite a crush on Yuuri at the banquet.

Victor is easy to misinterpret as a touchy-feely person because of how he behaves with Yuuri. But go back and watch him in Season 1. Victor only touches and flirts with Yuuri. If Victor touches anyone else (like Yakov or Yurio), it’s more friendly. The way you would act with family. Mostly, he keeps his hands to himself.

But not with Yuuri. Victor’s behavior sets him apart as a romantic interest from the beginning.

So while the idea of becoming a coach might have contributed to the sparkle in Victor’s eyes at the banquet, I do think there was also some romantic attraction happening as well.

anonymous asked:

For a nsfw writing prompt.. what if Viktor and Yuuri were ahem netflix and chilling but then Viktor suddenly got invested into the movie 😂

(omg anon, this is the cutest prompt ever, thank you)


The Netflix and Chill session was Victor’s idea, of course. Though he’d claimed he just wanted to unwind for the evening and enjoy catching up on a few anime episodes with Yuuri, they both knew what he was really after. So it didn’t come as a surprise when Victor went in for a kiss before the opening theme-song of the show even got underway.

Yuuri ended up straddled on Victor’s lap, his fingers tangled up in impossibly gorgeous silver hair and mouth opening eagerly to his fiancé’s every demand. It wasn’t often that Yuuri felt quite as daring as he did that night, but the bottle of wine they’d shared during dinner had done a fine job of getting him in the mood. As Victor’s hands slid up the back of his shirt, Yuuri let out a quiet gasp that soon turned into a moan. Victor’s own shirt was completely unbuttoned, and his hard, flat stomach moved between them with every breath.

But little by little, Yuuri noticed his partner wasn’t responding as quickly to his advances as he would have liked. “Victor…” Yuuri pouted between kisses. “Touch me.”

“Hmm?” Victor murmured, clearly distracted.

Suspicious, Yuuri drew back and glared when he saw Victor’s eyes glued to the TV screen. Geez. Had he been watching it the whole time they were making out? Yuuri placed both hands on Victor’s face and forced him to look at him instead. “Are you even paying attention to me?”

Victor smiled sweetly up at him and clutched Yuuri’s body tighter against his own. “Of course, I am. How could I not, looking the way you do?”

This appeased Yuuri somewhat, and he let his eyes drift shut as Victor moved to kiss his neck. It wasn’t long before Yuuri was melting in his arms. Finally, they were getting somewhere. But all too soon, he sensed Victor getting distracted again. Yuuri’s eyes flew open, and he pulled away to look at Victor, who was once again zoned out and staring at the anime on the TV.

“Hey,” Yuuri said, snapping his fingers in front of Victor’s eyes. “Weeb. You’ve got the real thing right in front of you, you know. Pay attention to me!”

Victor blinked several times before focusing on Yuuri. “I am! But it’s just…” Biting down on his lower lip, Victor moved his head to the side so he could see the TV past Yuuri’s shoulder. “That character there kind of reminds me of you.”

Yuuri turned to look at the anime on the screen, which he hadn’t paid the least bit of attention to before now. The character Victor was referring to was actually an animated talking piglet, who wore glasses and blushed every time someone talked to him. Yuuri’s mouth fell open in horror as he watched the piglet trip and fall to the ground before bursting into tears. “Victor,” he gasped.

“Oh, my God,” Victor gushed, squeezing Yuuri tight against him. “He’s just so precious. Yuuri, I want one.

anonymous asked:

I really can't buy that Yuuri had NO idea how he acted at the banquet! Sure it makes sense that he got too wasted to remember, but how could he not find out later from social media or the internet?! His phone would have been full of messages the morning after! Dudes suddenly stripping on a pole (am I also the only one wondering how the pole got there, too?) would definitely have ended up in several gossip blogs. Especially if skating megastar Victor Nikiforov got involved in the fun! Idk

At the beginning of YOI, we see Yuuri looking up news articles about his performance, even with Celestino actively encouraging him not to.

Not long after this, Yuuri goes off to the restroom and breaks down into tears. 

As a sensitive person myself, I can say I’ve experienced painful moments like this in my own life. You eventually hit a point where your brain rejects any additional input because it’s protecting itself. If you see something else that makes the pain hurt even worse, it’s very normal to have a “NOPE” reaction and do everything in your power to avoid that additional pain.

We see Yuuri having another “NOPE” moment after his viral video gets posted.

He doesn’t read the comments on the video or look himself up on social media. Yuuri literally drops his phone and shuts himself off mentally from the world. 

He’s not emotionally equipped to handle anything else. His brain rejected that information in order to protect him.

I do think it’s possible Yuuri never found out through others what happened at the banquet, though it would require work on his part to avoid it.

Maybe people did try to point out posts about it, and he just chose not to look. Maybe he shut his phone off and stopped logging into social media for a while until the news quieted down. Maybe Phichit or Celestino tried to mention it once, and because Yuuri got so upset and sensitive about the topic, they never brought it up again.

That “NOPE” feeling is awful when you get there. It’s an overwhelming sense of “I cannot handle anymore” and you just shut yourself off.

So yes - I do think it’s possible.

anonymous asked:

your meta's helped me understand everything on another level. can you do one and explain why yuuri slaps minami-kun on the back before his free skate? i've never understood why he does that because it seems out of character for him. thank you

(The creators of the anime actually explained this, I believe. This is what I remember from their answer, incorporated into my own perception of how the scene plays into Yuuri’s overall storyline in Episode 5.)

It’s important to note that Yuuri isn’t focused at all on Minami for most of Episode 5. Yuuri is focused on himself.

In fact, it’s not until after the Short Program that Yuuri seems to remember who Minami even is. “Oh, right. You’re the guy who beat me at All Japan.”

Yuuri resists thinking about his fellow competitors because he’s trying to protect himself from insecurity.

It’s actually Victor that breaks Yuuri out of this self-centered self-doubt.

What he says to Yuuri here causes him to stop, get outside of his own head for once, and cheer Minami on during his Free Skate.

Notice Yuuri says “the skater I USED to be.”

There are two things going on here. 1) Yuuri realizing he’s the older, more experienced, better skater. 2) Yuuri realizing he has something to teach Minami because he’s been in his shoes before.

So what does Yuuri do right after that? He goes off by himself to warm up/center himself. We aren’t told what he’s thinking here, but though we see him taking deep breaths, he doesn’t seem like he’s feeling that intimidated by the guy who beat him at All Japan.

On the contrary. Yuuri looks kind of … different than the jittery skater we’ve seen in prior episodes.

And then suddenly, this badass enters the rink

So what happened there? Why did Minami’s performance cause this sudden change in Yuuri? 

Well … because he listened to Victor. Yuuri has shifted the focus off himself and instead, focused on being the kind of skater that would inspire others. Namely Minami, who looks up to him.

Because remember … Minami asked for this.

So this scene can be interpreted as…

“That was a cute performance, kid. Good job. But guess what? Japan’s Ace is here now, so take a seat.”

In an indirect way, Yuuri is stepping up to the plate and saying, “You asked for this, so pay attention. I’m going to show you how far you can take this if you keep practicing.”

Yuuri is trying to motivate Minami.

nowisnotimeforcaution  asked:

Not sure if you've answered this one before, but what's your favorite Victuuri headcanon.

In the screencap above, you can see Yuuri has a keyboard in his room.

My headcanon is that he took piano lessons, maybe into his teenage years, but stopped playing as much when he started focusing intently on his skating. 

But Yuuri can follow along with pretty much any chord chart and his sight-reading skills aren’t so bad either. Maybe he used to play for Minako’s dance recitals. Or maybe he used to earn a little extra money in college by helping music majors out with his piano accompaniment skills around recital time. Maybe he even composed the melody of Yuri on Ice himself but didn’t have the confidence to fully orchestrate or record it, so he commissioned that girl to flesh it out.

And for the longest time, Victor has no idea Yuuri can play. When asked about the keyboard, Yuuri just shrugs it off like it’s just a random piece of junk that’s been stored in his room at Yu-topia.

But one night, after Yuuri’s had too much to drink, he sits down at a random piano and starts messing around.

And he’s good. He’s really good.

And maybe he even sings along a bit and Victor is like…

I know your crazy busy with life and use your writing time for drive and winter song but... Could you write a smol sick fic? Nothing long or extravagant! It would be a blessing.

Summary: Yuuri falls ill during a practice at the Ice Castle. Pre-Episode 5.

***

When Victor excused himself from practice to take a quick phone call, Yuuri was fine. Perhaps a little quieter than normal while he rehearsed a combination spin out on the Ice Castle rink, one gloved hand extended gracefully overhead, but there was no indication that anything was wrong.

He was fine.

How that changed so quickly was anyone’s guess.

Victor was gone for less than five minutes, and when he returned, Yuuri was on his knees in the center of the rink with his head in his hands. Victor took one look and started running, even before he fully registered what he was seeing. He wasn’t wearing his skates for practice today, but that didn’t stop him from running out onto the ice and slipping and sliding for the first few steps before he regained his balance.

“Yuuri.” Victor came to a clumsy stop in front of him, and when he dropped to his knees, the ice soaked through the fabric of his pants. He grasped Yuuri’s shoulder and said, “What happened. Did you fall?”

Yuuri was shaking. His face was so pale that even his lips had lost their color, and he kept squeezing his eyes shut and reopening them as if to clear his vision. “Dizzy,” he said.

anonymous asked:

do you have any victuuri as parents headcanons? 😊

Victor and Yuuri wait to become parents until after they’re both retired from competitive skating so that they can give their child their full attention. At first, they want to hire a surrogate, but after reading up on adoption, they decide they want to give a kid without parents a better life.

Gender, age, and race don’t matter at all when they’re searching for a child to adopt. Victor and Yuuri only have a single requirement: the child must be okay with having poodles around because they’re already the doggie-parents of 10 of them.

They finally make it through the adoption process and are tentatively matched with a shy, two-year-old girl of Asian descent. When they meet her, she can’t talk to them in English, but she takes to Victor immediately. As he holds her, Victor feels like a father for the first time. He knows this little girl is the one, and he’s supposed to be her Papa. She seems to know it too and doesn’t want to let go of Victor’s neck long enough to do anything else.

But there’s a problem. Victor and Yuuri bring one of their many poodles to meet the little girl, and she’s completely terrified of the dog to the point where she’s inconsolable. Victor and Yuuri don’t know what to do because they already love this little girl, but they also don’t want to get rid of their other “children”, whom they love. Victor frets over the problem and even looks into getting a second apartment so that his dogs can stay nearby after the adoption goes through. He’s heartbroken and can’t imagine giving anything or anyone that he loves up.

At the next scheduled meeting with the adoption agency, Victor is running late and arrives after Yuuri. When Victor goes to the room to meet with the little girl, he finds Yuuri is already there. He’s brought their oldest and most beloved poodle, Makkachin, with him.

And this time, the little girl isn’t crying. Yuuri is down on the ground with her, already being the best Otousan in the world as he shows her that their dogs aren’t anything to be afraid of. Makkachin is very sweet and patient with the little girl, and Victor just melts as he watches Yuuri guide her little hand to pet Makkachin’s fur. Her phobia soon vanishes, and before long, she’s squealing for joy and hugging Makkachin like a new stuffed animal.

Victor promptly falls even more in love with his husband. There’s nothing quite like seeing Yuuri play the role of a gentle, patient father.

After they adopt the little girl, they nickname her Mako, in honor of Makkachin

(Mako picked out the nickname herself and refuses to answer to anything else.)

What are your takes on: best character design, best character introduction, best minor character, best personality, and best costume!

Best Character Design

Gonna have to go with Yuuri on this one because I’ve never seen a character go from sweet, shy, and innocent to stud in 0.00001 seconds flat.

Best Character Introduction

I know this isn’t the first time we see Yurio on screen, but I think the scene with him and the tiger sweatshirt was one of the most immediately endearing things I’ve ever seen.

Best Minor Character

This is a hard one! I love all of them, but I have to go with Christophe. He and Victor together crack me up. I can’t wait to see more of their adventures in the YOI movie.

Best Personality

Victor is simultaneously the sweetest yet most savage, generous yet clueless, adorable yet sexiest character, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the universe for his existence.

And for all the suits he wears. Because good grief, he wears those suits well.

Best Costume

Yuuri’s Eros costume. Hands down. He’s just beautiful in it.

In fact, I think I need to go lie down. That screencap just did me in, send help.

anonymous asked:

I would agree with you about Michele, if it wasn't for the fact that he's the meme king of the italian YOI fandom XD We bonded over a trashy boxed wine called San Crispino and over Sala being a living room (the correct spelling is Sara). Still, it would be nice to see some character development on his part, less creepy stuff and more friendship with Emil (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

(I wish Crunchyroll would correct Sara’s name in their subtitles. So many people think her name is Sala.)

I will say this about Michele. He won me over a little in Episode 12.

After Yuuri’s FS performance at the GPF, Michele claps for him. And if you look closely, notice the guy is actually crying a little. Yep, those are tears in his eyes.

Yuuri is the reason Michele didn’t make it to the GPF. Michele beat him in Moscow but still didn’t get to compete in Barcelona. Michele also came in 5th at the Sochi GPF and beat Yuuri in the process. There’s some competitive history between these two.

And I don’t know. I just think it’s sweet that he got emotional over Yuuri’s performance. I think Michele was secretly rooting for him to win.

And I find it Extra Funny that Michele is the only one who doesn’t clap for Yuri Plisetsky’s performance.

He actually looks MAD. He’s got his arms crossed over his chest while the others are clapping for Yuri.

Either he’s intimidated by a talented fifteen-year-old, or Michele really wanted Yuuri to be the winner of the GPF.

anonymous asked:

Oh my, I realize you have many asks so feel free to answer simply or not at all, I don't mind! What are your thoughts on Victor's treatment of Yuuri in the beginning (ep 2) to now? I'm thinking of "savage" Victor with his 4 piggy/weight/mediocre comments. He softens toward Yuuri after of course but do you think he'd still have a natural tendency to bluntly tease Yuuri? I know some people call Victor's "don't feel like kissing if it isn't gold" a lil mean but it just isn't at the same level? :)

Victor’s initial roasting of Yuuri (and Yurio) has always struck me as simply what Victor is used to receiving himself. He considers Yakov the “only coach for him.” And what does Yakov do every chance he gets? He roasts Victor.

It’s “tough love,” if you will.

Yuuri doesn’t need to lose weight for cosmetic reasons. He needs to get in shape because he’s an athlete. However, I don’t think Victor understands how harsh he comes across at times.

To him, being hard on someone is a way of guiding them in the direction he feels will benefit them. It’s what Yakov does to him.

As for the “I’m not kissing anything but gold” scene, I think Victor was just being humorous. That entire scene was dripping with sarcasm.

“Aww, you didn’t win gold? Wow, I’m such a terrible coach. I’m so disappointed. Whatever could I kiss instead of a gold medal? Yuuri, do you have any ideas?” *puckers up*

I also think Victor was prodding Yuuri not to retire in that scene. It was a “keep trying” message.

Petition for you to write 100k of domestic Victuuri because I love how you write them!!!!

Happy to! Here are a few hundred words of Domesticity to get started on that 100k goal.

Yuuri opened the refrigerator door for the sole purpose of letting the chilly air wash over his sweat-drenched skin.

It was all he could do to stop himself from climbing inside. Stepping as close as possible, he craned his neck back and rested a forearm against the still-closed freezer door. “Oh, that feels good,” he said, panting with every breath. Beneath his tank top, a bead of sweat slid down his spine.

“Incoming,” Victor said and slammed into Yuuri from behind. “Hang on…can I just…?”

There was a moment of awkward repositioning while Victor opened the freezer door, and then they both collapsed against the appliance, basking in the freezing cold air that poured over them. They were both sweaty and overheated, having just returned to their apartment after a long practice. Summer temperatures in St. Petersburg were normally quite pleasant, but every now and then…

It’s so hot,” Victor whined, as if that wasn’t already obvious. “Did you turn on the AC?”

Yuuri reached into the freezer and grabbed a piece of ice out of the bin. Before popping it into his mouth, he said, “We don’t have an AC.”

Why don’t we have an AC?

Victor pushed himself away from Yuuri’s back, stripped off every stitch of clothing he was wearing, and tossed it all behind him without any consideration for where it might land. Then he was pressing himself up against Yuuri’s backside again and letting out a slow, satisfied moan that bordered on obscene.

“Mmm, that’s better,” Victor said, his mouth an inch from Yuuri’s ear.

Yuuri might have blushed if his entire body didn’t already feel like it was on fire. Still, he was suddenly keenly aware of Victor’s hard, muscled stomach moving in and out against his back with every breath—and of Victor pushing something else against Yuuri’s bottom.

Wetting his lips, he turned his face, eyelashes flickering upward to look at Victor over his right shoulder. Guided by Yuuri’s fingertips, Victor turned as well.

They kissed—slow and flirtatious at first, with Victor’s fingers worrying circles into the fabric of Yuuri’s tank top at his belly. But by the time they parted, the ice had been licked out of Yuuri’s mouth, and Victor was taking it out of his own with a smirk.

He brought it down in front of them. Easing up the bottom of Yuuri’s tank, Victor touched the wet ice to the faint trail of dark hair that disappeared beneath the waistband of Yuuri’s pants. Yuuri gasped and went up on his toes as the chill shot through him. The contents of the refrigerator rattled once and settled again.

“Why are you still wearing clothes?” Victor licked a stripe up Yuuri’s neck, his tongue still cold from sucking on the ice.

Yuuri’s nipples had hardened into stiff peaks that rubbed against the cotton of his tank top. He let out a breathless laugh, pressed his body back against Victor’s, and rotated his hips in a leisurely circle. “Because you haven’t taken the hint and torn them off me yet.”

“Kitchen sex?” Victor suggested.

Yuuri shook his head once. “Shower sex. It’s my turn to clean the kitchen, and we’re all sweaty and gross.”

“But that’s cheating. It’s my turn to clean the bathroom.”

“Exactly.” Spinning around in his husband’s arms, Yuuri reached between them and brought Victor’s hand to his mouth. As Yuuri licked suggestively at the melting ice still captured in Victor’s fingers, he looked coyly upward to meet his eyes. “I promise I’ll make it worth your while,” he said, lips wet.

Yuuri led the way to the bathroom, hips swaying and ice clinking between his teeth, while his husband followed obediently behind wearing nothing but a dazed smile.

Hey sorry for bothering you; do you have a "previously answered" page on your blog? I can't see one if you do so sorry :/ My meta question is what do you think about ep. 4 when Yuuri tells Victor he doesn't want to be his boyfriend, but they're obviously getting much comfier with each other and he's now fine with being close to Viktor and small affections (Victor leaning am arm on him)? Sorry if you covered this already!

Keep in mind that a lot of time passes in Episode 4.

Like. A LOT.

When Yuuri tells Victor he doesn’t want him to be his boyfriend, that was at the very beginning of their friendship. Their wardrobe implies this happened in the springtime.

Also, the clouds in the background are moving in opposite directions. A changing of seasons, if you will. I think that’s symbolic of their relationship.

We then see time go by with Victor and Yuuri slowly growing closer. They put together the entire Free Skate performance in this episode - music, theme, choreography. That doesn’t happen in a day.

Little by little, you see Yuuri getting more comfortable with Victor. I believe the screencap above in particular shows Yuuri falling in love.

By the time we get to the Grand Prix assignment announcement scene, their clothing implies the weather outside is warmer. Last year’s GP assignment announcement took place at the end of June (source). Summertime.

So months have gone by between “I don’t want you to be my boyfriend” and the scene above.

Episode 4 is a slow burn. But it’s a blink-and-you-miss-it slow burn.
