Is there such thing as way to many posts about ep 10 victor’s engagement scene? The answer is NO, so here’s another one
prepare for a long post
I spot something round made of gold
cue in church scene… you know what happens in churches??? this
from what I’ve been told, marriage proposals in Japan are discreet. They are not the usual “will you marry me?” that we, westerners have. The “will you take care of me” from the last episode was a good example of that and this “I’ll try my best from tomorrow”, which refers to the figure skating routine is even more discreet. Yuuri learnt to show is love to victor through ice skating, so it only makes sense that his proposal is somehow related to that.
And Victor understood what Yuuri was implying. That face is a bit of shock and surprise, but it’s much more a face of understanding what’s going on, what Yuuri’s words imply
The fact that he pull off a ring and did the same kind of vow, shows that he was also thinking about it for some time
And even though Yuuri did the first move, even though he took the initiative, he was still insecure, because as you can see, the decision of buying the rings was kind of impulsing. He was shocked when Victor put a ring on his finger, because, although he was sure he loved him, he wasn’t sure that Victor loved him back. That was the confirmation he needed. That is the reason behind these smiles
And then, of course, we have the restaurant scene
(victor looks so happy!!!)
and this is the precise moment that the truth hits pichit
the yoi fandom in one picture:
(don’t even try to deny it, yuuri)
Christophe: oh my, my friend just got engaged, I’m so happy for him. when will I find my true love?
Otabek: marriage is good. I applaud this union between to people
yurio: UUUHHHHH? WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN? WH WAS I NOT INFORMED OF THEIR INTENTIONS PREVIOUSLY?
minado and mari: uh… I did not see that one coming. finally…
minado and mari: dammit victor, you ruined everything. you had to do that. did you not see yuuri last year? you will never get married
Christophe: cute, but I’ll win
yurio and otabek: GAME ON. there’s no way in hell that’ll happen. I’ll win and you’ll remain single forever
pichit: uhm… I want to win, but I also want them to get married…. What should I do in order to get both?
