I'm curious, do you think Viktor and Chris had had a special relationship in canon? :3
If by ‘special’ you mean ‘sexual’, Anon, no, I’m very firmly on Team Victor Never Slept With Chris. I just don’t get that vibe off their relationship at all. Yeah they’re jokey and a little flirty, but the way Victor introduces him in ep 10 is just so 'I still think of Chris as a cute little bb no matter how sexy his image’.
I feel like Chris maybe would have gone there when they were younger, but he strikes me as too sensible to get himself involved with someone as ridiculous as Victor, lol. My headcanon is also that Chris/Victor is the RPF juggernaut of the YOI world, but on the occasion someone brings it up to Chris he acts super offended that anyone thinks he’d sleep with someone as HIDEOUSLY UGLY as Victor (Victor thinks this is the funniest thing ever).
Past Chris/Victor also just feels to me like one of those lazy headcanons that’s become ubiquitous because people copy one another’s tropes rather than because they’ve actually thought about it that much. If someone genuinely likes the ship and either feels canon supports it or just wants to write it anyway I certainly have no problem with that, people can write what they want, but so often when I come across it I feel like it’s just there as one of fandom’s 'accepted truths’, just like ignorant virgin Yuuri or creepily over-involved Phichit.
