I know you can't answer this question right now since companion fic and all, but how in the WORLD hasn't Victor noticed that Yuuri is shy/anxious? They lived together for A WEEK!! And talked outside a competition setting! Like I understand why people who never talked to Yuuri can mistake him as aloof, but Victor??? I can't wait to see Yuuri from Victors pov. Maybe he is just as blind as Yuuri when it comes to important social interactions?
Viktor knows Yuuri a lot better than many other people and doesn’t have the same misconceptions but you wouldn’t necessarily assume Yuuri as medicated anxiety from how he acts, especially if, like Viktor, you don’t have much experience with anxiety or people with it
