My friend and I have come to the conclusion that Viktor and Yuri, the dorks they are, are both determined to surprise the other on their wedding day. And they both decide that the best way to do this is to give their vows in the other’s native language.
They both stay up late studying without the other knowing. Yuri frantically asks Yurio to check his grammar (Yurio is of course DISGUSTED by how sappy he is but helps anyway), Viktor calls Mari at 3 am because he can’t figure out how the fuck this word works and he’s so worried it won’t be right… she looks at what he has and just laughs thinking of the time Yuri tried to write Viktor a fan letter in garbled Russian, taking pity on him.
Wedding day comes, Yuri comes down the isle, both are almost crying already. Viktor takes a shuddering breath and starts his vows. His accent is terrible, he stumbles on pronunciation, but Yuri? He is sobbing already. Viktor finishes, grinning widely. Yuri is crying and laughing, slowly takes a breath. Smirks up at Viktor, starts his own vows… and Viktor is in instant tears.
It takes all their willpower not to kiss before they’re told to.
I was looking for Russian names and found out that Georgi and Yuri are both variation of the name George and come from the same root, so technically there are three (3) Yuris in Yuri on ice and I’m so done with this show

Pronunciation of the Chicago family is butchered in the series. So
Zorya Vechernyaya is pronounced like
[zuh -‘ria (first vowel is a short a-sound, like in uh-huh, reduced; r is soft like a purring cat, stress on the 2nd syllable) vee-‘tcher-nia-ia (stress on the 2nd again, nya is like Japanese anime nya! ,soft)]
Utrennyaya [‘oot (like foot, stress on the 1st syllable) - ren - again with the Japanese nya
Polunochnaya - [puh-'loo-nuh-tch-naya]
The way they say it in the show is zoraya ootren’jaja, extra syllables,wrong word stress, ending sounds like a German yes :/ don’t do that
Czernobog is [tcherrrr-nuh-'bokh] 1st consonant is closer to German tsch, middle syllable is reduced, last is stressed and the last consonant is Scottish like Loch Ness,glottal and rough
“Love is the highest form of prayer. If prayer is the Empress of virtue,
then the Christian loves God, because God is Love … Watch the world
only through the prism of love so that all your problems disappear. Then
you will see that the Kingdom of God is within you, that man is an
icon, and earthly beauty is only a shadow of heavenly life. You might
think that it is impossible to love your enemies, but remember that
Christ said, ‘Whatever you did to the people you did it to Me’. Keep
these words written in gold letters in your heart, keep it next to an
icon and read it every day.”
I’m sure a lot of people following me are a fan of the Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, etc series, and just a fan of mythological gods in general, but how many of you can name a Slavic god or goddess?
I bet not a lot of you! I am here to change that!
