No offence but it's hard to take your bottom/top discourse seriously when you clearly have a bias. I mean you agree with an ask saying Victor bottoms 80% but you want to talk about progressiveness? If you go through both of their bottom tags on ao3 there's clearly a mixture of oocness and in character stuff. You think Yuuri gets treated like a woman but I've seen more than enough fics where Victor is treated like a stereotypical uke because he's pretty.
none taken, i do not ask to be taken seriously and see your point and absolutely admit that i have a bias, which is my preference for vitya+service kink as i mentioned in the ask i just answered. there are a LOT more fics with vitya as service sub than service top and that definitely can and probably does affect my point of view. the best thing about preferences is that they can be different than what i consider to be canon, like in this case!
and yes i definitely agree about vitya being treated like that in too many fics as well, and just like with yuuri, those are the kind i’d rather just skip altogether. there def is an issue within fandoms in general with turning one party of mlm couples into a ~super uke~ and no one is safe from it really. my general feeling about yoi is that although it does happen to vitya as well, people tend to do that to yuuri a lot more while vitya gets painted as a bad guy more often. this could be my general protectiveness and advocacy for Soft vitya speaking tho!
