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
in season four keith is most definitely isolating himself from team voltron and joining the blade of marmora due to his abandonment issues…he thinks team voltron is going to leave him, so he’s beating them to the punch
Ahh, it’s time for my favorite pastime of combining AUs with other AUs. This time I played around with @mist-lightning-snap’s kwami power swap by combining it with my (slightly altered) genderbends. I also incorporated @princessofharte idea of the kwami’s retaining their personalities same as before, with Jabii being overly-confident and therefore lazy because she’s a tiny goddess of good fortune! What could go wrong! and Yuun trying to be super encouraging despite the misfortune he brings.
Some other details for this au..within an au…
Jabii’s name comes from the Korean word 자비 which means mercy/charity (just added another “i” to fit Kwami naming conventions)
Yuun’s name stems from 厄运 (Èyùn) which is Chinese for “bad luck/doom”
I decided to switch Adrienne’s name to Aurélie, which is something I’ve been thinking about doing for awhile…
I gave Marin a Chinese name, 海明 (HăiMing) which means “bright/clear sea” to go with Marin meaning “sailor/of the sea”
has blue/green eyes and Marin’s are now hazel
“Arlequin” is just French for harlequin and
Aurélie’s is just the feminine equivalent of “minou”.. I was not uh.. feeling too creative in the hero name department today (so it’s subject to change).
I haven’t figured out their powers yet but they will be slightly different from Tikki’s and Plagg’s…
Sometimes Marin wears his hair up out-of-suit but not often. Opposite goes for Aurélie wearing her hair down. She usually has it up somehow.
only know each other in this AU as heroes! Not as civilians (yet)
running a studyblr as an adult is so strange. i see kids as young as 13 having breakdowns about grades, isolating themselves from everyone because they don’t quite fit in, not knowing how to deal with very real mental health problems… it’s not my place as someone significantly older than you to try and intervene in your personal life, but i hope you all know that if you ever want advice - about studying, dealing with life, or just which colour to change your blog to - or need someone to listen to you when you’ve had an awful day, my inbox is always open. things will get better for you, and you will be okay, i promise.
