I want to say something, because I haven’t ever properly done it before… so uh. Jack, if you see this. I want you to know that you honestly saved my life. Probably several times. I can’t remember when I started watching your videos, and I don’t know if that’s just because I feel like I always have been or if my sense of time is really that bad. But in any case… I can say with confidence that you have been a beacon of light at my darkest moments. I don’t watch your videos as much as I’d like to, because I’m sorta convinced that I’ll ruin it for myself somehow, but every time that I do watch I can’t help but feel happy at least for a little while. Thank you doesn’t seem good enough, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
And thank you to everyone in the community that has ever given me support as well. I appreciate it more than you could ever know.
So I’ve been on the fence about Chris for a while now, and I decided after watched episode 10 to sit down and think about why I didn’t quite hate him or love him. I’ve decided I love Chris.
First let me start with why people dislike him. He popped in and grabbed Yuuris butt. He was seen as an active threat to Victor for Yuuri. As well as givin snide comments to Yuuri about taking Victor away from skating. Plus, he did touch Yuuri without consenting, aaaaand he’s a bit of a perv….
If you put aside that weird Ice kink he has, Chris isn’t actually that bad of a person. Wild? sure. But a bad guy? No.
Think about this for a second, Victor was also his idol. His ideal. He wanted to skate with Victor and eventually win. That was his goal. To also stand as an equal to Victor. Now, during last year (when he placed behind Victor who got gold) that was half his dream. He got to stand with Victor. Except! He had been planning on this year beating Victor. Not for the “I’m better mwahaha!” Shit. But to say “I can stand next to the person who inspired me to work hard.”
Yuuri at that banquet, at the time wasn’t a threat or anything bad for Chris. He was just a drunk guy who wanted to have fun so Chris said “fuck it I’m down for this! This guy is awesome!” And let loose just as Yurio and Victor both did. TBH, the fact that he joined it was awesome. You can see that no one else did. Only Chris, Victor and Yurio. Where was everyone else?
So, in other words Chris saw Yuuri as someone of some value to have a fun time with. He genuinely liked Yuuri.
Move along to meeting Yuuri again for the first time now as a competitor. He’s probably a little salty that Victor has been gone. Let’s be honest, again his goal was to stand next to his probably only close ‘friend’ during competition.
Honestly, Yuuri put himself out there as being okay with close contact (pole dancing and skin on skin with Chris hello~), and if you noticed Yuuri didn’t react to badly to it when Chris grabbed his butt. Yuuri is like me, awkward to initiate contact but if someone else does it, it’s a shock but I relax as long as it’s not threatening. Chris honestly wasn’t being a threat. Maybe a flirt sure.
Anyway, his thoughts as of now are like anyone else. Yuuri isn’t worthy of taking Victor off the ice, Yuuri hasnt PROVEN worthy I should say. SO of course Chris wants to prove his own worth. Prove to Victor that he chose the wrong side and should come back to skating where the real company is, where he belongs.
TBH, both Chris and Victor seem to be the closest (besides Yuuri and Phichit, or Yuuri and Victor). So I’d say yeah he was jealous. But he hasn’t really done a whole lot other than be over the top with his actions. He even went and acted like a human Popsicle with Victor and attacked Yuuri. I think, he’s actually very fond of Yuuri. Enough to say he would be delighted to hang out with Yuuri and Victor any time. He seems like a lonely soul as well TBH……..N I think he’s over his jealousy. Now is just focusing on winning like any normal skater. Granted……he has an ice kink…but to each their own I guess……
He really reminds me of a co worker I have. Overly flirtatious with everyone, but has a good heart and is kind. Would be there in an instant to have fun and goof off. But is smart and can be serious when they need.
Chris just feels very….lonely. His ‘boo’ is a cat…..he’s awkward in social situations. He’s touchy feely like Victor is. He’s very obviously gay and a queen or maybe he’s nothing or maybe straight, or ace or whatever he wants because I don’t care what his sexuality is he’s Chris. But he’s alone. I think Victor and Yuuri are his closest people friends. Anyway. I’m probably wrong.
Mind you some of this or all of it is head canon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With bases on what I observed from the show.
EDIT: I’m making a small edit here because it seems I’m being mistaken. Some may think I’m saying it was okay for Chris to grab Yuuri. No. I’m not saying that. You shouldn’t grab people. This was literally a post about a character interpretation. Not about if he did right or wrong. Obviously it’s not okay to grab people. I hate the fact that I have to explain that. As far as I’m concerned, if Yuuri isn’t bothered by Chris then neither am I. As a character, Chris is not a bad person. All I’m saying.
