I’m just saying but y'all have turned nina zenick into the character that you criticize other media for having. The number of posts that I have seen that are centered around nina’s love of waffles and her beauty is ridiculous (basically every post about her), which is basically what every other form of media reduces fat girls down to and what they value them for. Y'all are putting her into the same box that society puts fat girls in when her character is handled so beautifully in the books. You’re taking the representation that I have never seen before and twisting it into something else. Nina is strong and courageous and fierce and powerful but she’s also kind and loving and caring. Why are the only traits you choose to represent in your posts are her affinity for waffles and her beauty?
what she means: taki tooru spent a year never speaking because she was terrified she might say someones name after using a certain circle that let her see youkai and was told the next 13 people whos name she said would be cursed along with her. Then later on she used herself as bait to protect natsume/ And then after that she was so terrified of using the circle again but as soon as she thought natsume was in trouble she broke it out again with only a moment of hesitance because she wanted to protect her friend. End me i love her so much????
i think love you goodbye is like an ALMOST break up song so it could be about harry
lmao can you imagine - they had one little small argument, Harry left to cool down and Louis was already like angst I just lost my soul mate and Harry was back 20 minutes later with Louis favorite ice cream in hand and a apology on the tip of his tongue
this is just a tiny little detail but I really love how they made Viktor tell Yuuri his wants and desires during the course of the show because it shows a lot of character (and really displays the utmost care his VA put into Viktor’s voice)
it’s SO CASUAL
He says this as if it’s the easiest thing in the world, no big deal, almost a throwaway comment, but knowing how Viktor feels about Yuuri it’s OBVIOUS that this carries a lot more meaning than he lets on
it’s a very natural thing to do because you want to guard the depth of your emotions and fear rejection so you present what you actually want in a way that makes it seem not that important to you, to shield yourself from the eventual rejection and embarrassment that might follow in its wake
he does this again in episode 7
he says this WAY TOO CASUALLY, as if it’s just a random solution that popped into his head (and this is also a sign of how Viktor deals with issues through actions as opposed to words), but once again he just reveals his emotions in a way that puts him out of harm’s way if he’s rejected. VIKTOR’S LIKE “Yuuri you’re crying??? Ah okay I can kiss it better if you want no big deal just doing my job as coach hahaah right Yuuri”
your gay is showing
and the fact that he actually kisses Yuuri in the end of the episode just shows that he was entirely serious the whole time on a much deeper level than he lets on (it makes me both laugh and cry that he probably waited for this moment for MONTHS……the poor man, he’s so patient)
episode 9, same thing again
presented in a very lighthearted tone this time. During the first times he talks as if it’s of little importance to him, but now his words are more sincere but with this tone instead. Once again, no grand words, no outpouring emotions, just Viktor casually expressing the depth of what he feels for Yuuri and how he desires for their relationship to progress. At this point he has his boyfriend and he has his kisses, so now he just moves on to the next stage because well, Viktor Nikiforov is madly in love with Yuuri and wants the whole world to know
HE DOES THIS SO MANY TIMES
I’m just……so in love with the thought of Viktor, while brave enough to express his wishes, still not being able to do this in a way that would perhaps put him in an awkward spot. He’s obviously very pushy right at the beginning and as we know he cries himself to sleep in episode 2 after Yuuri rejects him
He always appears very confident and overall sure of himself so these things are so interesting to me because, while subtle, it reveals his insecurities and how much he longs for Yuuri but fears being turned down at the same time. Viktor is, until Yuuri comes into his life, ultimately a very lonely character and it makes sense that he would grasp for Yuuri and at the same time feel uncomfortable revealing just HOW MUCH he wants these things.
These subtle choices in dialogue and expressions and voice acting reveals so much to us and I love this kind of storytelling.
VIKTOR IS SUCH A FASCINATING CHARACTER!! I love him I’m so glad he found love and happiness and a future for himself with Yuuri by his side
