can we talk about the character development tho??
they’ve come so far from their car park days bless
it’s beautiful how his growth as a coach is directly parallel to the growth of their relationship and now Viktor’s so attuned to Yuuri’s moods and quirks and he’s gotten so good at looking out for his boyfriend’s wellbeing im cry
Viktor: I want to see you in your birthday suit!!
anyway LOOK AT THIS
Viktor’s learned to slow down and be attentive and careful instead of blindly using blunt tactics and he’s watching Yuuri with so much love!! and so much worry!! he knows him so well now, and yeah it was the pole dancing playboy character who drew him in in the first place but this is who Viktor stayed for, this is the person he wants to marry and i just AAAAA
THIS RIGHT HERE. five time grand prix gold medallist Viktor Nikiforov who has never left the spotlight in his entire career is just content to be there and dedicate himself to the love of this one wonderful man and they’re!! so!! wholesome!! [screeching]
