I ADORE THE COMPLEXITY OF THESE CHARACTERS SO MUCH I LIVE FOR THESE THINGS !!! I could write another 10 page meta about this but let’s not

and Beka’s just like “oh my goddddd did u really just tell him i think he’s pretty thanks aloT” and he’s embarrassed and it’s cute and yurio is blushing and im dying
