the banquet scene


Yuri!!! on Ice: Reverse!AU Banquet Scene

Some stuff I drew for sigh-haikyuu’s ambitious project to recreate the banquet scene for her reverse AU. It was an amazing experience to be working together with other artists to make something I would never have personally dreamed of. Congrats for creating this awesomeness!

So how do we know that the banquet scene that Victor actually fell for Yuri there at that point? Because yeah his eyes sparkled but I thought that was down to him having an epiphany like "omg yes that's a great idea! I can coach for a year!" What do you think??🤔

While I don’t think Victor could have possibly fallen in love with someone he didn’t know, I do think he was swept off his feet by Yuuri at the banquet.

Look how much fun Victor’s having in that picture!

And yeah … I’m still not over these two dorks doing the bull/matador thing with each other. 

Note that Yuuri is still dressed in these pictures, which means that he didn’t ask Victor to be his coach until after they danced together. (Later, he wasn’t wearing pants and his tie relocated to a much nerdier place.)

I think at the banquet, Victor sees something exciting and new in Yuuri.

It’s not love, but it’s a spark of attraction. I think it’s obvious from Victor’s behavior at the beginning of Season 1 that he developed quite a crush on Yuuri at the banquet.

Victor is easy to misinterpret as a touchy-feely person because of how he behaves with Yuuri. But go back and watch him in Season 1. Victor only touches and flirts with Yuuri. If Victor touches anyone else (like Yakov or Yurio), it’s more friendly. The way you would act with family. Mostly, he keeps his hands to himself.

But not with Yuuri. Victor’s behavior sets him apart as a romantic interest from the beginning.

So while the idea of becoming a coach might have contributed to the sparkle in Victor’s eyes at the banquet, I do think there was also some romantic attraction happening as well.

casual reminder that

at the banquet

Victor stalked followed Yuuri with his gaze

his very focused

curious gaze…

Following up on your language post: Laurent finding himself in many situations where he knows exactly what Akielons are saying, he just has no clue how to respond for a hot minute. Or maybe he's giving a speech and the crowd goes shocked/confused, Damen having to pull him aside like "nonono no n O use ____ not ____" "they don't mean the same thing?" "n o"


Honestly, Laurent’s linguistic difficulties are just My Thing. But also, remember, he’s most probably self-taught. I always headcanon he learnt enough to pass for fluency, or at least to be able to manouevre conversations away from topics he doesn’t have the vocabulary for. 

But also, it’s one thing learning a language in your own country usually with tutors who have the same accent as you and in a slower environment. It is a VERY different thing being immersed in it. Laurent will have learnt standard Akielon, and the grammar and pronounciation to go with it.

Damen will definitely have helped him become conversational, but remember, Damen himself is royalty. He will have a very different accent and use of grammar to the common people. Also, it is entirely possible Laurent became attuned purely to how Damen speaks because it’s a specific pitch/ tone/way of pronouncing. If he’s shoved into a situation with loads of Akielons all talking at once with their regional accents and improper use of grammar, it will take him a moment to adjust.

Remember as well when Laurent is using Akielon canonically, it’s one on one with Damen, or Nikandros or Makedon or Kastor. It’s one on one and there’s no other interference. I would imagine that in the banquet scenes, a lot of the general chatter is going over his head.

Similarly for his writing. We know he can write Akielon because he wrote to Nikandros, and Laurent would certainly have been thorough enough to consult with dictionaries and verb tables and so on to have the correct grammar, but again. Self-taught. It’ll be slightly stilted. It’s not as if he has someone to correct him. I headcanon that when he and Damen rule, Laurent’s written Akielon is fine, but if it’s a particularly important piece of legislation, he leaves it on the table in his and Damen’s chambers as an unspoken hint to Damen that he would just like him to check it over for any tiny mistakes/ flow. It’s never ackknowledged between them, and Damen will usually just correct it and leave it where he found it. Laurent will then look at the corrections and learn them.

hi, sorry if this is a dumb question but, it's revealed that viktor was in love yuuri the whole time in that one episode where it reveals yuuri doesnt remember that one night, and before that they got rings. did they actually get engaged is that what yuuri really meant when he bought those rings ??? and when did they actually start dating?? im a lil confused. especially abt when their relationship turned romantic

Hi anon!!! Not a dumb question at all! All of the things you asked about, I’m afraid, are pretty subjective, but here’s the timeline of Victor and Yuuri’s relationship as I see it. Also, I’d like to note that I’m not going to fill in the gaps (i.e. assume their first kiss was before The Kiss™), I’m just going with what’s canon.

The Victuuri Timeline


  • Victor is on top of the skating world and has lost inspiration. Yuuri has lost the GPF because of his anxiety and is ashamed of himself.
  • The Sochi Banquet Scene (Episode 10) - Yuuri dances with Victor and asks him to be his coach. Victor is enamored at first sight because Yuuri is bright and blazing and beautiful. He hears Yuuri’s request and the idea starts as a spark in his mind.


  • Yuuri skates to Victor’s routine, Stammi Vicino (Stay Close to Me) and the triplets record it.
  • Victor sees the video and decides to be Yuuri’s coach. He does this because he remembers how he’d felt during the banquet and because “he skates like his body is creating music.”
  • Victor shows up at the onsen, Yuuri essentially rejects him because he’s Shook™.

At this point in the show, we’re working with two types of love that are not the final product. Victor is infatuated with Yuuri, but he knows next to nothing about him. Yuuri, on the other hand, knows everything about Victor’s public persona, but knows nothing about his private persona. They’re in love with the idea of each other.

My thoughts are all over the place...

Idk guys but i think viktor actually falls in love with yuuri in chapter 4 back when they ran into each other in the bathroom:

“Viktor Nikiforov was standing in front of him, looking faintly shocked at the sudden appearance of a small Japanese boy who had just walked straight into him and proceeded to make a fool out of himself with his stuttering apologies. The Russian’s cheeks were a little flushed and there was a slight hitch to his breath as though he had been running just moments previously. If Yuuri had to guess he would assume Viktor had been running from the paparazzi that were still swarming the halls of the stadium. Since his senior debut, Viktor’s popularity had only grown and press and fans alike were clamouring to get a glimpse of the teenager at every event he attended.”

Now, idk if the blushing and the little hitch in his breathing was actually because of the paps or yuuri but its pretty similar to the banquet scene at the end of ep 10. And if i remember correctly, after that Viktor paid a little more attention to him like in chapter 6 when yuuri caught him staring… and two chapters later he asked yuuri to dance, all nervous like 🤔 ((why would he do that if he didnt have some sort of interest in him?)) ((maybe he did it because yuuri won and he wanted to make some sort of a peace offering?? Shit idk))

Or maybe he could’ve fell in love with yuuri after he first saw him skate which we now know was back in chapter 3. And we know how Vik felt after watching him skate so that could’ve stirred up something within him but idk–

Or maybe he could’ve fell for him much later–

I may be wrong 😂 bc we wont know until we get Vik’s POV but, its just my thoughts.

Your Theories?

I'm kind of surprised that victor didn't immediately try to grow his hair out after what yuuri told him at the olympics. Was it because he was too heartbroken (like the rest of us rip) or did he have other reasons? Does he eventually grow it out again for yuuri? (Sorry I love the idea of Victor growing it out after the series, there's an artwork of him with shoulder length hair by hachidraws that is my absolute favorite)

Viktor likes his hair the way it is at the moment and so he’s not going to grow it out just for drunk Yuuri, although he did consider it for a bit. Although I do like the idea that eventually he decides to experiment with long hair again. 

Also Yuuri actually likes Viktor’s hair short as well as long so he doesn’t mind either way. In the banquet scene he says:  “I liked…” Yuuri frowned a little at the words, seeming to struggle with what he was trying to say. “You used to have…long hair. I liked…” he trailed off again, seeming to lose his train of thought and going back to playing with the lock of hair still caught between his fingers.

The continuation of that sentence that he never finished wasn’t ‘I liked your long hair.’ It was ‘I liked you when you had long hair’. He was thinking back to when he still liked Viktor when they were both still kids. So he doesn’t actually mind if Viktor never has long hair again, the context of his sentence just got lost because he was drunk
