-This place is pretty local. We see Yuuri and Victor carrying fresh groceries (which literally imply once again, they probably live together lol). If this place was not local, I doubt Viktuuri would be shopping for gorceries there.
-Yuri is definitely DRESSED UP from his usual street fashion of tacky leopard print or tiger stripes. Similarly, Otabek, my boy, my light, is wearing such an elegant and cute sweater. Both of these boys EVIDENTLY made an effort in looking more formal than they usually do. And in the context of this situation, they definitely cared a lot about this date in order to change their usual style.
-THEY WERE SHARING MUSIC??? MY SKIN IS CLEAR??? MY LIFE IS COMPLETE??? They were probably super into it because they both look super interrupted and surprised at Viktuuri’s intrusion.
-OK LEMME POINT out how fUCKING PROUD BOTH YURI’S PARENTS LOOK? Yuuri looks so happy and looks as if is wishing Yuri a happy time while Viktor is just “man, my son is growing up and finally not that much of an angsty edgelord.”
-THEIR OUTFITS MATCH. THEIR OUTFITS MATCH. THEY LOOK SO GOOD TOGETHER I’M CRYING. ARE WE CANON. WE’RE CANON RIGHT. AHHHH. WHAT IS THIS BLESSING IM CRYING IM LAUGHING I REALLY CANT GET OVER THIS.
Ok but here’s the thing about when Clarke says Octavia “will see how special you are”: she’s not really looking intensely at Bellamy, she’s not in “convincing” mode, or calming mode. She just breathes it out as fact, like one of the fundamental laws of existence: Bellamy Blake is special.
Because to her, there’s never been a question. That Bellamy Blake is special is something that just /is/, to Clarke - it’s why she’s so confused when others can’t see it, when /Bellamy/ can’t see it.
And to an extent, it’s because Clarke knows Bellamy better than anybody, and appreciates everything he brings to the table more than anyone else. But that’s not all of it. No, Clarke doesn’t realize that the reason saying “she’ll realize how special you are” is as right and simple as saying “the sky is blue” isn’t just because Bellamy /is/ special, it’s because Bellamy is special TO HER. Her love for him has become so much a part of her that she assumes other people can see what she sees. Bellamy Blake is special and Clarke Griffin loves him. It just /is/.
