victor and yuuri are NOT on the same page
a few more thoughts before i pass the fuck out
in victor’s mind, they’re engaged. they’re going to get married. there is literally nothing more he can do to show his love to yuuri. nothing more he feels he has to do. he is secure in their relationship. he assumes the same for yuuri. when he says “we’ll get married after you win the gold” he (obviously) doesn’t literally mean that yuuri winning the gold is a condition to their marriage, he means it as a lighthearted, motivational joke of sorts.
look at his face when he says it.
“ne, yuuri?? ;D”
he doesn’t realize he’s just unintentionally reinforced the conditionality of his love for yuuri’s anxiety.
he’s kind of an oblivious ditz where the impact of his words and deeper emotional shit come in, as has been very well established at this point.
so of course now, at the grand prix final, after having essentially told yuuri the night before that the ring on his finger symbolizes their eternal bond, he is perfectly content with paying more attention to the event than to yuuri.
he’s off in his own lil world (again). he literally cannot fathom that yuuri would feel insecure in their relationship at this point, and for the most part, reasonably so– he pretty much just proposed the night before. so he’s thinking about his future and his friends and shit now that he has found the missing part of his life he was looking for: life & love with yuuri. and now he’s symbolically eternalized that bond.
so of course, the future and friends and competing are good and healthy things to be thinking about, yknow, not fixating on one person and one person only– when it is not at the expense of your boyfriends BLATANT ANXIETY THAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT IN FRONT OF U.
STOP BEING A BAD BOYFRIEND VICTOR. LOOK AT THE MAN IN FRONT OF U. LOOK AT HIM. HAVE U EVEN TOLD THIS BEAN ABOUT THE LOVE AND LIFE HE INTRODUCED U TO? HM? HAVE U?
AND YUURI, STOP ASSUMING YOU KNOW WHAT VICTOR WANTS AND WHAT’S BEST FOR HIM. TRY ASKING HIM, YOU LIL BISCUIT.
these precious tadpoles honestly need to get their shit together and i have every inch of faith that they will
