garage scene

I want a complete tour of the Cullen home, specifically this cabinet in the garage. Carlisle just strolls in there and starts taking out fistfuls of cash, like… wait, what else is in there?? Is this The Stash of various types of currency, fake IDs, license plates for various states, etc? All ready to go in case of emergency, i.e. Somebody Accidentally Ate a Classmate?

Just imagine for a second: some giggling couple of teenagers sneaks out here to make out during the graduation party in Eclipse and discovers The Stash 😄

“OMG The Cullens are gangsters!”

Hi! Doing a re watch (again lmao) and of course the infamous garage scene where Victor is fast running out of options in his newbie coach tool kit & decides to 'shatter Yuri's glass heart' As Victor is a beginner coach & they do tend when they start off to use the experiences that shaped them, do you think that someone tried to shatter Victors? Or was it an act of desperation?

Again is right! Watching YOI is like

That’s very insightful of you Anon-san. I do wonder. Has someone shattered or tried to shatter Viktor’s heart? To use this on Yuuri, it would’ve had to have been successful or why would he do it if he’s experienced it before? Let's think.

I feel like we know so little of Viktor’s backstory, his family appears non-existent. He did say he spent his whole life without life and love, and that makes me think his parents are out of the picture, whether they passed away or are just absent I don’t know. 

Since he speaks of never having loved before, I imagine any romantic relationships would not have reached the point of affecting him so thoroughly emotionally as to shatter his heart, let alone in a productive manner.

So that leaves Yakov. As you said Anon-san, “Victor is a beginner coach & they do tend when they start off to use the experiences that shaped them”, so Yakov ‘the only coach for him’, would have been the most likely one to do this.

And yet, I don’t think so. Yakov shouts a lot, but he still keeps offering Viktor a chance to return. He complains but he looks after Yuuri for the day when he has his own skater to worry about. He reminds me of Yurio actually, a bit of a tsundere. And in the GPF, when Yurio skates, Yakov has this very sweet flashback to a young Viktor skating.

So yeah, I don’t think Yakov would have tried to shatter Viktor’s heart either.

Having said all that, I do think the reason Viktor chose to do that with Yuuri does tie in with Yakov’s coaching. 

Viktor was really struggling in that episode, so he adopted his own coach’s mentality (he’d been doing that in episode 5 too when he’d ask himself ‘what would Yakov do?’). And Yakov is all about the tough love because, let’s be honest, with disobedient skaters like Yurio and Viktor he probably has no choice but to yell! 

I actually did a whole (long eheh) meta thing about what went on in the garage scene. That’s what I believe happened, a calculated act of desperation somewhat!

Yuuri, Victor, and the Importance of Good Communication

Victuuri Week 2017 – Day 4 – Free for All

So for today’s free for all I’d like to talk about something I haven’t heard too much about in the context I’m hoping to present it. My topic is specifically about how Victor and Yuuri are both very independent individuals and how that, combined with both of them having zero experience with serious emotional relationships, works to create miscommunications between the two of them.

To start off, I’d like to clarify what I mean when I say they’re independent. Obviously they’re both able to take care of themselves when it comes to stuff such as physical needs (like feeding themselves, etc). I’m talking more about how they’re emotionally independent. They’re both the kind of people who keep their problems to themselves and try to solve them all without relying on the help of others. They both actually tell us this directly.

We see this come up a bunch during the series even though both are aware that they do this. You can see it happen as early as episode 2 when Victor is hurt that Yuuri is rejecting him after the connection he felt they had at the banquet but never brings it up with him. Instead he sits on and stews in it. And likewise for Yuuri, he’s very confused as to why Victor is there at all and is being so forward with him but never asks him why. He just comes to his own conclusions and treats them as the truth until proven otherwise.

On top of them both being used to handling their problems on their own and internalizing their worries, they both also have no experience with deep emotional love relationships. I use the adjectives deep, emotional, and love to describe the relationship because you can have any other combination of those and have it not really touch the depth and type of relationship these two have with each other. They may have had other relationships but none that came close to this level.

Victor Nikiforov Appreciation Post!!!

I just want to take a moment and talk about how much I love Victor Nikiforov and how he’s just such a refreshing character. I know everyone and their dog has done a post like this already but I’ve been crying over this lovable goof for months and this had been sitting in my drafts for too long now anyway and also I’m avoiding my textbooks AND THIS SORTA TURNED INTO A CHARACTER ANALYSIS I’M SORRY.

So as far back as the PV, there were assumptions flying around that Victor would end up being an antagonist of some sort. That either he was using Yuuri for his own gain, or was just straight up evil. Laughable now, of course, but the reason those rumors were prevalent was because we see it so often. How easy was it to think that Victor was “helping” Yuuri only to further his own goals in the end? We’ve seen this common mentor-betrays-student trope before and it’s no wonder that early on fans were afraid of this even as the show progressed. And honestly? This would have made for some great drama—for Victor to turn out to not be such a nice guy and for him to eventually become someone Yuuri had to defeat in competition. However the show did not go down that route at all. It turns out that yeah, Victor is actually just a really nice guy who cares a great deal about Yuuri and the people around him. He doesn’t show up in Hasetsu with any evil ulterior motives—he just wants to get to know Yuuri and help him take his skating to the next level, and maybe find inspiration (and love) along the way.

Also how could a man with a heart-shaped smile be evil???

Victor and Yuuri’s Career Choices in Episode 12

Alternatively titled “WTF was episode 12!?” 

As the 3rd and final post in the Victor/Yuuri and Grief series (found here and here), we’ll be taking a look at how their individual journeys that we explored in the previous 2 posts leading up to the hotel scene in eps 11/12 affect their career choices in the final episode.

As we’ve seen already, both of them have gone through the entire grieving process by the time the hotel scene rolls around. Just as a reminder about what their grief focused on, I’ll do a super quick recap.

For Victor, his grief was centered around the developmental loss of his career and accepting that he can still have a fulfilling life coaching Yuuri. He hits his acceptance of this during the GPF short programs, the moment we see him overlooking the stadium as Yurio breaks his short program world record. Victor has finally reached a place where he feels he can be happy with things as they are – with him off the ice.

For Yuuri, his grief was centered around the anticipated loss of losing Victor (in all capacities) after the GPF ended and accepting that the time he has with him is limited. He convinced himself that the time he has with Victor in every capacity wasn’t forever and that he would eventually have to give him up. Over the course of the series, he comes to terms with this on his own.

Buckle up because it’s going to be a long ride. I promise you, however, that the read will be worth it. (I’ll even add in some music recommendations to listen to during certain parts to add to your reading experience!)
