So last month we had the Yuri on Stage craze along with OVERCOME CHIHOKO, BUTT-NAKED VICTOR “IM EXTRA DONT FCKING TOUCH ME ILL BE AT THE TOP OF THE CASTLE” NIKIFOROV, AND YURI “I LOVE MY EXTRA HUSBAND SO ILL BE DOING THE SAME” KATSUKI.
And now they give us the freaking wttm pv and otayuri manga with UNBELIEVABLY HOT OTABEK “YOUR DADDY” ALTIN AND YURI “MY DISGUSTING DADS WERE SO FCKIN GAY, I HAVE TO OUTGAY THEM” PLISETSKY
whenever Viktor gets too annoying for Yurio to tolerate the blond kid yells “CHIHOKO IS BETTER THAN YOU” and Viktor will let out a hurt gasp and start crying bc it takes him a while to remember that n o, Chihoko is NOT an e-lover of Yuuri’s, but a fucking fish statue
Yuuri has to reassure Viktor and remind him that no one in the world is better than him, and by Yuuri’s request Beka will take Yurio out on a walk to cool down
I’ve seen people describe the “Overcome Chihoko” story in a number of ways–Victor being Extra, crackfic, something written purely for laughs, and so forth. And yes, I think all of those things are true, to a certain extent, but I’m not sure we appreciate exactly how lovely of an instance of crackfic this is.
