emotions so many

I have a feeling this scene will cause the big fight in 2x13 because maggie hates Valentine’s Day and it looks like alex is surprising her at her apartment. Maybe they’ll argue and maggie will walk out, only to realise the mistake she made which leads her to surprising alex at the end of the episode with the dress scene.

“Working” does not necessarily mean “well”

This post by @thegaypumpingthroughyourveins​ made me want to doodle more returned and semi-recovering Graves, because I got so many emotions haha.
By the way, if anyone’s ever inspired to draw/write/headcanon by anything I draw, please tell me - I’m ever curious!

Season 12 feels

Me watching season 11:

Oh my Chuck. The pain. The feels. What are they doing to me.

I know, I’ll make myself feel better and imagine an AU, maybe where…

Mary is alive.

Sam and Dean aren’t mad at each other but supportive and working as a team.

Sam gets to be the one to kill the bad guy.

Cas is told and really believes he is part of the family.

Dean calls Cas devastatingly handsome and Cas tells him he loves him, cries a little and shows real human emotion.

Cas also tells Sam he loves him and is his family.

Crowley is kind of a good guy and part of the team while still being, heck, Crowley.

Ditto Rowena.

The colt is back.

Oh don’t be daft this is way too far fetched!

Me now: a flailing pile of human emotion.

I have so many emotions about this

I’m starting to think that Victor is not planning on returning to the ice. Yes, it’s still not conclusive at this point, but with the release of Episode 9? It’s getting to the point where I believe that maybe Victor is thinking about retiring.

Remember this scene from Episode 8:

When Victor was interviewed regarding his return to skating, this was his answer. He wanted to wait for the GPF to be over before making any announcement regarding his own career.

Being a coach, Victor turned the subject towards praising Yuuri’s skills and promoting the skate during the interview, which prompted one reporter to ask:

Victor doesn’t actually answer the reporter-he just smiles and even uses Yurio to evade doing so, which is successful. And while the reporters were thrown off the scent, it has left us fans to wonder:

What does Victor plan for the future-for that time when the competition for the Grand Prix Final is finally over?

It reminded me of one scene from Episode 2. It was during Yakov’s, Victor’s former coach, interview.

Now, Yakov may just be saying this out of disappointment from Victor leaving, but it also got me thinking if this was some kind of foreshadowing of the end of Victor’s career as a skater.

We do know he was in a slump by the time the anime rolls around from this commentary by Yurio in Episode 2.

Victor himself is aware that his achievements are nothing new anymore. He’s won competitions so many times that I guess people aren’t expecting any surprises from the Russian skater. He had slowly been losing his inspiration with regards to skating, about what he could do to thrill the audience.

But then, Yuuri came into his life. 

Recall what Minako had said in Episode 1:

And I think Victor realized it when he watched Yuuri’s rendition of the program.

Something about Yuuri caught Victor’s attention, and it gave him a new idea, an inspiration, if you will. It was something that made him try a different path than that of a skater: being a coach.

In the onsen, Victor had offered to coach Yuuri to help him win the Grand Prix Final. Looking back now, I guess Episode 1 gave us a deadline from the very beginning. That the story of Victor being a coach ends once the GPF is over. Maybe, Victor thought that by being Yuuri’s coach for a while would help him get some motivation to get him back into skating.

But, something changed along the way. As Victor and Yuuri went through their journey as student and coach, a different aspect of their relationship also bloomed. We were there to watch as they both fell in love with each other.

Victor never saw Yuuri as merely a skater. Please bear in mind that from the beginning, Victor tried to get to know everything Yuuri by asking all sorts of questions. That enabled both of them to support each other, even if they had fumbled at some attempts.
And yes, I’m talking about Victor making Yuuri cry on Episode 7.

Whatever they went through though, their relationship came out stronger together. And I believe Victor realized this as well. They were not merely student and coach, what he and Yuuri share had now become something more. Which, in turn, affects whatever he had been planning for himself when the GPF finally comes to an end.

And that ending, it’s right around the corner. Yuuri was thinking of it too.

Like I said in this post:

“and…” what? Was Yuuri thinking about them separating, going different ways?

after watching this again, Yuuri didn’t sound sad or depressed about his thoughts at the time. It was more like, “I have something I want after the GPF; I’ve made up my mind”. Which somehow made it more positive for me.

Yuuri has decided to make Victor stop being his coach. But the tone of his voice didn’t give me the impression of negativity, the opposite actually.

Was Yuuri thinking that once Victor was not his coach anymore, once he had retired from skating, could he and Victor start something new, together albeit in a different aspect? I would like to believe so.

Episode 9 also told us that Victor was thinking about what happens next too from their reunion at the airport.

And Yuuri…

Yuuri’s unintentional proposal,

which Victor points out and accepts,

that Yuuri does not negate.

We were all very happy at this point, weren’t we? So were the both of them. Until YOI hit us with more feels.

Victor: I wish you’d never retire.

From my earlier post:

Since Yuuri wanted Victor to stay with him until he retired, Victor expresses the sentiment of not wanting Yuuri to do so.

Victor wants to stay with Yuuri forever, to never leave the skater’s side.

He was not expecting that, not at all. He was thinking that Victor agreed to stay until he stops skating. But Victor, the goner, doesn’t want it that way

Yuuri is finally realizing and getting it into his head that Victor doesn’t want to leave his side. I think he was so overcome with emotion that he gets tears in his eyes.

Yuuri is finally starting to believe that Victor will stay with him. That Victor wants to stay with him and never leave.

This is made all the more poignant by the reminder that their time as student and coach is coming to a close. Some may think of it negatively, but I don’t believe we should view it as so.

Just before that line, they were hinting at a marriage proposal. Victor himself expresses his wish of not ending their time together, that he wants to stay as Yuuri’s coach.

Which brings us full circle to why I am posting this in the first place.

Victor, a legendary skater, who everyone is waiting for to come back on the ice, is willing to stay as a coach for Yuuri so that they can stay together.

It hits me now that maybe the time they had apart, that one or two days that separated them, made Victor realize how much he wants to remain beside Yuuri. So much so that he was willing to leave his skating career behind.

He left the ice to find inspiration, but he found someone he now wants to protect. He found someone he loved so much he was willing to give up skating professionally.

This doesn’t mean that Yuuri didn’t love Victor with the same intensity, with the same capacity for sacrifice. No.

Yuuri was thinking of making Victor step down as his coach and return to skating, return to Russia, after the GPF, whether he won gold or not. He was willing to be separated from Victor if that was what Victor wanted, what would make the other man happy.

So, what happens when the Grand Prix Final ends?

Yuuri may yet change his mind about retiring, or Victor may choose to retire with Yuuri. whatever their future holds, I want to believe that they will do it together as a unit and not as separate entities.

That marriage proposal was put there for a reason. Let’s believe in the power of love that Victor and Yuuri has taught and shown us.

What else could you call this kind of ability to sacrifice, to think of the other person more than yourself? They have set the standards high for any kind of love story, in my opinion. I can never look at any sort of romance the same without comparing them to these two. And this is from a sports anime.

Thank you for reading this. And remember:

LOVE WINS!

I still can’t get over how Alex is at a loss for words about describing Maggie. “She’s so-” like there aren’t words big enough or perfect enough to describe how she feels about Maggie and how important she is to her. You can see her light up thinking about her. You can see the warmth and comfort wash over her as she pictures Maggie and describes her. “She’s smart, tough, beautiful,” then Alex repeats “beautiful” for emphasis. It is Maggie’s inner and outer beauty that makes her “so beautiful”. Maggie is a beauty that she has never seen before. She is a beautiful light that helps Alex see her inner beauty, like Kara said “so are you”, as well as making the world a brighter more hopeful beautiful place.
