We need to talk about Phichit for a second.
He’s so happy and memeingful and he cares about Yuuri so much! First off, Phichit is only 20 and probably, like Yuuri, moved to America when he was around 18. But he left and went back to Bangkok because his buddy was gone. He could’ve stayed in America since Celestino is there but maybe not having his best friend made him lonely and homesick.
Yuuri needs to contact that songwriter girl and is nervous she hates him?
Phichit: I’m sure that’s not the case. I’ll find her for you.
He understands that Yuuri tends to be anxious and has low self-confidence so he needs to reassure there are absolutely no hard feelings. The girl is probably neutral but Yuuri is too down on himself to see it in a positive way. Meanwhile, wing man Phichit sees all!
First time in Barcelona for the GPF and bestie made it too?
Phichit: I gotta call him so we can sightsee together!
So precious! He wants to share this experience with his friend! Last year, he probably called/texted Yuuri constantly. How’s Sochi? Did you talk to Viktor? Did you go sightseeing? You’ll do great!
Phichit has this great dream and he’s gonna tell the world someday. First thing on his mind though?
Phichit: I have this great plan that not even my best friend Yuuri knows about!
Yuuri thinks of Phichit as his closest friend and I have no doubt that Phichit thinks the same of him. I think Yuuri is Phichit’s first true skating friend. There might not be another prominent Thai male figure skater in this universe. Yuuri is probably the first friend Phichit could connect with and he was able to tell him his dream of The King and the Skater. He wants to tell Yuuri about all of his dreams! He wants Yuuri to be the first person to know about his life plans!
He’s just so wholesome and sweet and supportive and just…can we just hug him and love him? Please???
