- yuuri: please be my coach until i retire!
- victor: i wish you’d never retire
- me: THEY DID THAT!! THEY DID THAT!!! YUURI 'ANXIOUS' KATSUKI FOUND IT IN HIMSELF TO VOICE HIS FEARS OF THE FUTURE. THE FEAR OF VICTOR LEAVING HIM AFTER THE GRAND PRIX FINAL. ASKING ONLY FOR WHAT HE THOUGHT HE DESERVED. LEAVING HIMSELF OPEN AND VULNERABLE FOR SOMEONE, SOMETHING TOTALLY NEW TO HIM. AND WHAT DOES HE GET IN RETURN?????? A SOFT SPOKEN 'I WISH YOU'D NEVER RETIRE'????????? SOFT SPOKEN IT MAY BE, BUT IT SPOKE VOLUMES TO YUURI TO THE POINT OF TEARS. ADDRESSING HIS FEARS WITH JUST THESE SIMPLE WORDS. SO EASILY DONE AND OF COURSE ONLY VICTOR CAN DO THAT. NO MATTER WHAT MENTAL STATE YUURI FINDS HIMSELF IN, ONLY VICTOR MEETS HIM WHERE HE IS. ONLY VICTOR
I remember one time I took deacon's sunglasses by accident (he was turned away from me) so I went back into the trade to give them back. He already had another pair on. Decoy glasses.
