Predictions for Of Bright Stars and Burning Hearts
Now since I’ve posted about what I am excited to see in the Rivals AU companion fic I’m going to post about my predictions.
Yurio idolized Yuuri as a child, like how Yuuri idolized Viktor.
Now Yurio has a bit of a broken idol thing going on because how Yuuri appears to treat Viktor. However, he can’t bring himself to completely believe that Yuuri is a bad person
Viktor talks to Yurio about Yuuri because Yurio is the only person receptive to “Yuuri is so amazing”
A few of Viktor’s prior relationships are mentioned but mostly glossed over.
Viktor gets a crush on Yuuri early on (maybe even by the JWC that Yuuri wins), however he doesn’t realize the depth of the feelings until later. (Falling Slowly is kind of a giveaway)
After Viktor realized he was in love he could not bring himself to sleep with anyone else, even though he thought that his love may be forever unrequited.
Their first time, before Yuuri said “I hate you, now fuck me,” Viktor was hopeful that Yuuri returned his feelings.
The first thing that kicked off the “Yuuri is a playboy” rep. is simply the gossip that follows most celebrities. However it got a big boost by Yuuri basically sneaking off all the time, that pole dancing incident, and an incident that Yuuri didn’t think was significant but everyone took the wrong way.
After the second time they had sex (when Yuuri was used Viktor in a horrible way to forget his loss) Viktor was the one looking at fanfiction… not a porn but at the fluffy “they’re so in love.” It didn’t help.
The Katsuki Yuuri hate really pisses Viktor off.
Viktor purposefully takes that picture with Yuuri’s jacket as a way to remember that night.
Viktor didn’t try to seduce Yuuri in chapter 11 because he was worried that either Yuuri would feel pressured or that Yuuri would leave.
After the blowjob in chap 11 he calls Chris and is all like “but the blowjob WHAT DID IT MEAN?!” and Chris is like “this is too much information even for me and that is saying a lot.”
The first time Viktor returns to his apartment after Yuuri leaves he can still smell the borscht and is sad, but happy that he has those memories. Or maybe there is leftover borscht and he eats it, remembering.
Viktor doesn’t bring up when Yuuri goes to the european championships because he is a mixture of hopeful (that Yuuri loves him back) and scared (that Yuuri doesn’t love him back)
Near the end Chris is like “…Yeah, Yuuri might actually have feelings for you.”
In chapter 14 before the happy ending Viktor looks at the pictures he took of Yuuri in Moscow to remember that fleeting happiness.
Yuuri goes to live with Viktor in St. Petersburg, (not sure what would happen with the coaching situation) but they get married in Hasetsu.
Okay that last one was pure wishful thinking; I just want to see Viktor in Hasetsu.
I can’t wait to read and find out. :)
