ok I’m not sure if I’ve said this enough but can y’all imagine this for a while.
Victor, having pretty bad jetlag, awakes in the middle of the night during his first night in Hasetsu. Thirsty, he stumbles down the stairs for a glass of water only to find that the light in the sitting area of the inn is still on. Quietly, the figures of Yuuri’s parents huddled around a heap of receipts and income statements come into view. Groggy from sleep (or a lack thereof), Victor isn’t too sure what they’re saying but he catches snippets of their conversation.
“not doing so well” “lower than expected”
Victor immediately knows what is up. His throat feels even more uncomfortable now, but not from a lack of water. The Katsuki’s had given him their biggest room, welcomed him into the inn with open arms, and tried their very best to accommodate him. Even though Victor had insisted and forced them to accept his payments, they had vigorously refused in the beginning.
So Victor posts a picture of Hasetsu, knowing the amount of attention it would get from the media and his fans.
So Victor tries his very best to hype up the Onsen on Ice event.
So Victor becomes the tourist ambassador.
Victor does everything he can to support the lovely town and family he has grown to love.
