I have a thought. So Kubo mentioned that she found out some Russian parents will count on their kids becoming athletes, right? And Yuri seems to be cool with it. But what if it was the same for Vitya, but instead of being proud of his success, he feels used by his parents and them counting on him for money. Like, in this thought Vitya's parents aren't poor, they just want him to be an even bigger source of income. Idk, but it could explain why he doesn't seek to have a family.
So in my thought, Victor was pushed through those dreadful sports schools, but found amazing pride over his own accomplishments on the ice, and was absolutely not thrilled about his parents, who are again, not in need of his hard earned money, wanting to be known as the parents of Victor Nikiforov™ so they sent their kid off to sports school at 6 instead of loving him for being their god damn kid, that they’re perfectly capable of raising with their own salaries. Idk, just thoughts.
ohhhh this hurts me so much you wouldn’t even believe…… it’s def a possibility! i really want him to have a loving and supportive family and my heart will break if his backstory turns out to be something like this D:
