stop being creepy and obsessive over kids?? it’s bordering on predatory at this point. dedicating whole fuckin blogs and gifsets to child actors, shipping real children… yall are weird. stay the fuck away from kids.
Can we just talk about how much Toshiya and Hiroko probably love Viktor aka their new son in law
Aside from Toshiya bullshitting that he doesn’t know exactly who Viktor Nikiforov in this moment (like come on, unless he hasn’t been inside Yuuri’s bedroom or spoken to his son about his interests in eleven years), and just being a wing man here, I like to think that they had a full conversation. I mean, Makkachin had obviously been given free reign of the house at this point, so they must have talked about that.
What I like to think went down is Viktor walked in with a rehearsed (and slightly mispronounced) sentence of Japanese like “Konnichiwa! Watashi no namae wa Viktor-”
And Toshiya looks at him like “Here for Yuuri?”
“Yes! I’m looking for Yuuri!” All hearts and smiles. “I want to coach him in figure skating!” And then goes into a long explanation of how great Yuuri indeed is.
And of course he knows enough English to understand the meaning of that, so he politely directs Viktor to the onsen whilst he waits.
But aside from that.
Viktor has been there for… two hours at this point? Probably even less, but maybe not. Hiroko is already casually referring to him as Vicchan. He’s been adopted swiftly.
She sounds and looks so fond of him.
SHE LOOKS SO DAMN PLEASED WHEN VIKTOR COMPLIMENTS THE KATSUDON
And let’s just remember that Viktor is a walking advertisement at this rate. Given how much the Katsukis talk about promoting tourism, they probably adore him for it too
Also Yuuri is just as bad as he is lmao
Also the fact that the Katsukis are trusted with Makkachin says a lot. They ARE family at this point.
I hinestly think Hiroko and Toshiya would genuinely be over the moon when the engagement is announced. It’s one thing to mentally adopt Viktor, and another to ACTUALLY have him as their son in law.
TLDR, Viktor and the Katsuki’s have an adorable relationship I wish was explored more
WHEN THE WAR IS OVER AND YOU TAKE YOUR ALIEN GF TO YOUR HOME COUNTRY AND SHOW HER YOUR CULTURE AND TAKE HER TO A FESTIVAL AND WIN HER A GIANT PRIZE AND SHE LOVES IT AND LOVES YOU AND YOU LOVE HER AND EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL AND RIGHT AND GOOD
EDIT: THANK YOU @mikishami FOR THE BEAUTIFUL SUGGESTION TO GIVE THEM A TOTORO
oh hey so. saying a Black character is “a perfect sunshine boy!!” or “a Goddess!! she doesn’t need no man!!” can also be a form of dehumanization.
when Black characters become such “pure cinnamon rolls” you can’t ship them, when they “deserve so much better” you refuse to pair them with any white fave, when they’re “just so flawless” they become boring, when you insist they’re “perfect” but then utterly and completely stop there, you’re reducing them to one dimension.
they become props for white character development,
cos you’re not letting them have any character of their own.
when the only characters that are flawed, relatable, interesting, complex, shippable, deserving of pages of meta for a 0.02 second glance ~just so happen to be~ white you’re indicating that they’re the only characters you see as fully human.
