Anyway @ all these posts about Yakov going bald bc his students are so Extra™️
Like??? Where??? Do you think???? They learned it from???
I’m sorry but like it’s way too much of a coincidence that Victor “I Flew Halfway Around the World to Coach a Boy Who Once Grinded On Me At a Party” Nikiforov, Yuri “I Performed an Erotic Strip Tease on Ice for a Boy I Met Two Days Go” Plisetsky, Mila “I Deadlift People Who Annoy Me” Babicheva and Georigi “I Dedicated an Entire Skating Season to the Memory of My Shitty Ex” Popovich all just HAPPENED to have the same skating coach who incidentally spends more time with them than anyone else
Like idk but? Hiring your ex wife to coach your new protege in a thinly veiled attempt to win her back? Moving in with said ex-wife and new protege at the slightest suggestion? Agreeing to coach a rival skater on a moment’s notice for the sake of True Love?
These do not seem like things that someone not well-versed in the ways of melodrama and histrionics would do.
Also I’m 100% sure that Yakov proposed to Lilia after seeing her dance literally once ok like that definitely happened.
Anyways Yakov teaches more than figure skating, being extra is a lifestyle and he’s the true world champ, ty ty
