RE: discussions: Since Victor is basically alone with no one but his dog, he is soooooo vulnerable to being attacked or mistreated in any way. Like, even minor arguments between him and Yuuri. Who is he going to talk to about his problems? Yuri is too young, Yakov is too strict, Makkachin is a dog... I mean, Chris is the only real option, but Chris doesn't get his feelings; he wanted to get Victor back on the ice and stop being Yuuri's coach. *part 1
Part 2: I could really see Victor ending up mistreating himself in trying to please Yuuri, and Yuuri not even finding out at first because he’s too fucking good of an actor. He already does a lot of things for Yuuri that he could do himself. Tying shoes, buying him stuff, trying to be anything Yuuri wants, literally giving up on everything in his life and then get back to the ice + coaching because Yuuri wants him to skate.
Part 3. So, how’s anyone seriously considering that Victor wouldn’t do the dishes for Yuuri. It’s like they completely forget that he’s loaded as fuck, so dishwasher + maid. But even if he wasn’t, he ties Yuuri’s shoes. You bet he would do the dishes ffs. But I digress. The point is that I wish everyone would show Vitya more support, pls protect my son. I’m very passionate. Tl;dr think Vitya considers himself lower than Yuuri as Yuuri does to Victor…
… then of course they figure it out, Vic finds a support system and maybe some therapy, they accept each other for who they are, flaws and all, they get married, adopt kids and more dogs, then they skated happily ever after, after Yuuri won 5 consecutive world championships. AND ALL WAS GOOD AND THEY GOT THROUGH EVERY OBSTACLE IN LIFE TOGETHER AND DIED PEACEFULLY THE SAME NIGHT, IN THEIR BED AT AGE 150 AND 154, K BYE ILY AND YOUR METAS, BLESS.
(Sorry for ramblings, I have a lot of thoughts and feels and you write metas, so I thought maybe the thoughts and feels would interest you. Sorry if it was too much, but I can’t un-send the asks. Anyway. I love ur metas they’re neat. I hope you get good grades for your homework!!)
YES. I think that Yuuri and Victor, really at the beginning of the series, have trouble seeing each other outside their own fantasies. Victor’s idea of Yuuri was the sexually active, confident, entrancing individual he encountered at the banquet. He knew Yuuri would be different sober, but he didn’t realize to what extent. Victor kept trying to get that Yuuri back (all the flirting/propositions, kind of assigning him Eros, etc), until he realized that Yuuri, like any other person, is multi-faceted. Same goes to Victor. Yuuri saw him as this untouchable god for so long that it was hard to see Victor as a flawed human being. They have their slips, but they’re getting there.
“I could really see Victor ending up mistreating himself in trying to please Yuuri” AWESOME way of putting it! Victor totally dotes on Yuuri in such a way that suggests he’s trying to be everything Yuuri could ever want. I mean, we’ve talked about the beach scene, but I think it’s worth mentioning again.
By offering all these options as to what Yuuri wants him to be, Victor isn’t being honest with his feelings. He’s protecting himself while also gauging how Yuuri feels about him. Victor is willing to take up any act to just be by Yuuri’s side. This poor bby is so lovesick and has no sense of self-worth.
Although, I think that when Victor returns to skating, he’s at a point in his life where he’s ready to come back. Yeah, I think he partially does it because Yuuri wants him to, but Victor seems already have an interest in taking back his title. Yuuri and Yuri are challengers, and Victor wants to step up to that challenge. This year with Yuuri has given Victor the time he needed to start healing. It’s been beneficial to his mental–and subsequently, physical–health. But I do think that Victor is staying on as Yuuri’s coach half because he really wants to, but also half because it was Yuuri’s request. Victor’s got his work cut out for him next season, honestly.
About the Dishcourse™, I think that’s a running joke that people starting blowing out of proportion. But yeah, Victor dotes on Yuuri hand and foot (lol) so dishcourse jokes may be a bit ooc, but it just got outta hand. That’s what jokes are, you know? Exaggerations. Everybody chill pls.
(final note: never apologize for rambling to me, I love discussion. And thank you, I’m working hard! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و )
