I’ve seen a few viktuuri soulmate aus where the soulmate’s initial is on the other’s wrist, and yet I haven’t seen a single fic that deals with how much this would SUCK for poor Katsuki Yuuri. Because the letter V in the Cyrillic alphabet and the letter B in the Roman alphabet look exactly the same.
So poor Yuuri goes through his whole life thinking his soulmate is a westerner whose name starts with B, which is fine right up until Viktor shows up and he realizes these feelings might be a little stronger than just a fanboy crush. So then Yuuri’s feeling terrible and guilty because he’s falling for the wrong person, and Viktor certainly isn’t helping with his flirtiness. And he finally confronts Viktor about it, telling him “I really like you but there’s no way this could work because I want to be with my soulmate and there’s no way you could possibly be them” and showing Viktor his mark.
And Viktor’s so confused. He saw Yuuri’s mark at the banquet, and he’s known ever since he managed to translate his own mark that it’s the first character in Yuuri’s name, so why is Yuuri saying he can’t be Viktor’s soulmate? Viktor says as much, and now Yuuri’s confused because that’s a B, Viktor. And it finally clicks in Viktor’s head that Yuuri doesn’t know Russian, and there’s no reason why he would assume the letter was a Russian V when it looks like a Roman B. So misunderstandings are resolved, laughs and smooches are had, and Yuuri decides to learn Russian because he’d rather not have some nonsense like this happen again.
Anyway if someone would like to write this I would be eternally grateful.
