Thank you all so much for sticking with my fickle being and supporting my art, I feel very accomplished because of all of you and wish to improve and do more in 2017! To show my gratitude I’ll do some raffles in approx 10days when my prints arrive, so stay tuned!
The thing about Yuuri’s Free Skate is that, from my understanding of how scoring in ice skating works (which isn’t saying much lmao), it has a higher base(?) score than Yuri’s. So, if Yuuri hypothetically managed to skate a perfect Yuri On Ice, he could definitely close that 20 point gap, and then the gold medal would be up in the air.
It was a kiss, it was not just a hug but a kiss. We’ve seen hugs in all sports anime..and in real life sports too. no one is that surprised when teammates hug one another and or even when coaches and their students hug. It’s a common occurrence. But this…this was a kiss. You do not put that much effort into editing and making that scene. Not to mention with someone like Victor doing it. He for sure probably hugged a bunch of people in his career. So do not come to me telling me it was “just a hug” because it wasn’t. You’re denying something in your face!!! No to mention what was in said right after too! They’ve hugged and Victor had tried hugging Yuri many times already too, they’ve touched one another, so a hug wouldn’t have been that surprising. He kissed him.
The pretend dating au where Viktor tired of all the fans throwing themselves at him starts making vague comments about his significant other who he is in a very serious relationship with.
(In my head this all happens when Viktor is like 23-24…)
Thing is the lie is so effective he keeps it up for about a year, and people are starting to doubt his fake relationship and Viktor is outrage they are doubting his love for his fake boyfriend.
And can’t stand for that, so of course he escalate things by showing up to the next competition with a ring on his finger saying he’s engaged now.
Only he miscalculated and now he’s in too deep. So when asked why all the secrecy, he just sort of says something about how they need to keep their heads in the competition.
Which of course means everybody assumes he’s dating a fellow ice skater and rumours start going wild about who could it be.
Then a video of Yuuri skating Viktor latest winning routine shows up online, and Viktor sees an opportunity.
He makes a deal with Yuuri to pretend to be engaged to him for 6 months and in exchange Viktor will get Yakov to coach him, and he will personally choreograph his routines.
Yuuri accepts and then you get your usual shenanigans of misunderstandings, jealousy, falling in love and getting together.
Also picture: 11-12 year Yurio who is still a little shit but imprints on Yuuri because he fed him once and now Yuuri is stuck with a stray moody kid who follows him everywhere and demands skating lessons.
