SO KUBO-SENSEI JUST CONFIRMED IN AN INTERVIEW THAT VIKTOR AND YUURI ARE SOULMATES
AND OBVIOUSLY, just like the rest of the fandom i was sCREAMING but then i had a flashback to my philosophy classes and i remembered this:
according to plato, the origin of soulmates is that humans used to have four arms and four legs and a head with two faces. but that annoyed zeus, who determined they should be split in half so they wouldn’t be as powerful and consequentially there would be more people to praise the gods and all that jazz, and it was said that when the two separated humans find each other there would be a deep understanding of one another and they would feel unified, and then they would be truly happy.
AND THEN I THOUGHT “BUT WAIT, THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR”
THE CONCLUSION OF STAMMI VICINO IS ABOUT FINDING YOUR SOULMATE
Hermione had taken his hand again and was gripping it tightly. He could not look at her, but returned the pressure, now taking deep, sharp gulps of the night air, trying to steady himself, trying regain control. He should have brought something to give them, and he had not thought of it, and every plant in the graveyard was leafless and frozen. But Hermione raised her wand, moved it in a circle through the air and a wreath of Christmas roses blossomed before them. Harry caught it and laid it on his parents’ grave.
