The bedroom scene for so many reasons. Firstly there’s no way to ‘no homo’ this, not after the kiss scene. Some shows would leave it at that, but we got the chance to glimpse into an intimate moment between the two of them, one that also reveals what I like to think of as the birth of James’s craving for domesticity: He’s far away from the harsh realities of the sea and the navy and instead curled up with Thomas and a book. The book is also (obviously) important; it symbolizes that even though these two men come from vastly different social climes they share an intelligence and a need to look beyond everyday matters into the deeper meanings of things. This is no doubt one of the ways Thomas wooed James into believing in his idealism.
What really amuses me - as a rare-shipper with a lot of too rare ships - is that official arts at least gives me life (and prompts) when it comes to Georgij and Mila. I mean, they’re close, and they can either
strike MATCHING POSES (oh, HELLO, CHRIS)
or wear MATCHING OUTFITS
And I know these are only shipper rants but I love these little details so much, I can imagine plenty of stories about how they’ve artistically grown together, how they’ve become really close friends and reciprocally influenced every aspect of their daily life… How much they’ve bonded, it doesn’t matter if I ship them romantically or only as best friends.
Also, talking about the Russian Family, I wanna thank the official art again, because even if nothing of this is deliberate, I have fully adopted the headcanon of Georgij being a sort of mom!friend for Yurij, by now. And the idea is both cute and sad, because Yurij is younger - very younger - than him but has already overcome his records
(LOOK, HE’S OVERSHADOWING HIM EVEN IN AN INNOCENT OFFICIAL ART, I CAN’T)
But Georgij doesn’t seem to hold a grudge against him. He was there, cheering for him during the ROSTELECOM competitions, and he’s now here, helping him reaching for a cup he can’t probably hope to win anymore
I just… I wanna write a lot of headcanons about the daily life of Team Russia, there’s so much to say and they’ve got so much potential.
what if Robbie accidentally finds out who one of the kids has a crush on, and they are FLIPPING THEIR ENTIRE SHIT BECAUSE ROBBIE FOUND OUT AND IS PROBABLY GOING TO USE IT AGAINST THEM BECAUSE HE IS THE VILLAIN, and Robbie is promising and promising to no avail, and then he blurts out “WELLIHAVEACRUSHONSPORTACUS” and it ABSOLUTELY calms the child due to the pure shock
and then they have this weird mutual agreement to keep the other’s secret, to cover for the other if necessary, and everybody else is suddenly wondering why they are suddenly getting along way better than before
“Going through different phases is one of my favorite things about fashion. I love how it can mark the passage of time. It’s similar to my songs in that way—it all helps identify where I was at in different points of my life.”
