Okay but does anyone realize that Otabek is probably the first person to acknowledge Yurio’s effort? Everyone else sees the genius with skating skills so far from his peers, but Otabek is the first one who see the Yurio who fights and most importantly HE’S THE FIRST ONE WITH WHOM YURIO SHARE HIS STRUGGLE DURING HIS MOVE TO ST. PETERSBURG (the boy was 10 years old for goodness sake). So yeah, I ship it because these two is another type of (ahem) friends who connect without many words needed. PLEASE DON’T F*CK THIS UP I HAD ENOUGH WITH JJ x YURIO BEFORE!!!
P/S: DID ANYONE NOTICE YURIO’S SMILE WHEN TALKING TO OTABEK? IT TOOK YUURI 9 EPISODES TO GET THAT AND OTABEK TOOK LIKE 90 SECONDS MY GOSH MY HEART I’M OUT *DROP MIC LIKE IT’S A F*CKING POTATO*
