srsly tho

So, I know that a lot of people in this fandom are angst-eating-beasts so there are a lot of theories around what happened to Victor’s family. “They died” and “they left him” are the ones I hear the most.

But I came here today to tell you about my theory. It’s odd. Don’t judge, I’m pretty odd myself.

So, I like to think that Victor’s parents are Russian spies on the USA and that they are about to take Trump down. As they are spies, they can’t contact Victor a lot but they love him. And Victor loves them, but to protect them he doesn’t speak about his parents or their jobs. They are very proud parents tho. They even went see him skate on all of the GPF Victor has been to (even as a coach).

They ship Victuuri, too.

  • What She Says: I'm fine
  • What She Means: Have you noticed that Mr. Strickler is actually trying to be a really good teacher to Jim at the very beginning of the series!? Like, you can tell he really does enjoy teaching history to his students, he takes note of Jim's struggles to pay attention in class and takes the time to figure out why that is, AND he goes out of his way to try to get Jim and his mother to talk with him about these difficulties and asks Jim to visit him to talk anytime he needs to; and ALL BEFORE HE KNEW THAT JIM WAS THE NEXT TROLLHUNTER! Like...what would be his motives to do all those things except for just genuinely loving his job as a teacher!? Sure, there's the huge difficulty then with him spearheading the effort to rebuild Killahead Bridge which could potentially lead to the doom of all mankind - of course including his said students - so yeah, not sure about his reasoning on that one. Though from his other dialogue - and the doubts about him expressed by Bular - there is a large part of him that's become fond of the humanity he's lived with and taught for the last who-knows-how-many years, and that he shows signs of wanting to negotiate some sort of peace with Gunmar to ensure that at least some people are protected from the Gumm-Gumm's onslaught. So feels were genuinely a wreck over him being revealed as a villain at the end of episode 01. Like...WHY!!??
