One thing I’ll never stop loving about YOI is just how CHILL Hiroko, Yuuri’s mom, is about Victor.
Like here’s the normal reaction. Minako embodies the attitude of the media and basically anyone who gets the news that Victor is gonna coach Yuuri.
LIKE HOLY FUCKING BALLS THE VICTOR NIKIFOROV IS GOING TO COACH YOUR SON????
But this sweet, sweet woman, is not one bit shook. She already has a nickname for Victor.
The thing is, it’s not that surprising.
She’s seen all those posters up in her son’s room and the way her son looks at them when she helps him vacuum. She’s fished her credit card out of her purse when teenage Yuuri just HAD to get that limited edition poster of Victor and Makkachin. She’s overheard the thousands of fawning conversations between Yuuko and Yuuri about just how AMAZING Victor is.
Hiroko is probably so used to seeing Yuuri adore Victor that she probably thinks it’s normal for them to get together eventually.
