This person is an overthinker in the best way. They are always looking at the world with a critical eye and trying to analyze and make sense of everything. Other people fascinate them and they enjoy communicating with everyone. This is a person with a very bright mind and many ideas in their head, but they struggle more than others to get their thoughts into concrete expression. But by making just a bit more effort than the average person, they will be able to express themselves beautifully. A downside of thinking so much could be that they start to be too self-critical. They may feel that they are not doing enough or that they don’t have enough to offer to people.
The more I think about season 2 of Yuri on Ice, the more I realize that it would make most sense if it picked up right where season 1 finished - after the Grand Prix Finals and before the Japanese/Russian nationals.
Because think about it: the new season could start off with the Nationals, both of which take place more or less at the same time, meaning that Victor and Yuuri would have to be apart however that also means that episode 1 could have a skating sequence similar to the one in ep 1 of s1, where Victor and Yuuri were skating to the same piece. I know that they can’t skate the exact same thing if they’re both competing, but it could be something similar, the main point is to have that awesome cinematic effect that the first skating routine we saw in YOI had.
After that, we could see Victor coming to Japan to help Yuuri pack and then both of them going back to Russia (although Yuuri going alone would also work) and moving in together. Maybe that’s just me but I’d love to see Yuuri’s first days in St. Petersburg, sort of similar to how we’ve seen Victor in Hasetsu in s1. This is also where we could first see the domesticity between them in the new season. Of course, they were domestic already in s1, but not quite “moving into your fiance’s apartment and living with him” sort of domestic, if you know what I mean. I’d sell my soul for Yuuri causally kissing Victor’s cheek or Victor pressing a kiss to Yuuri’s hair as he’s doing the dishes or just lounging around the house but seeing them sleep in one bed and/or sofa cuddles would satisfy me.
Anyway, in terms of the competitions, the next one up (in January) is the European Championships - where we would see Victor skate his short and free programs for the first time, and the other European skaters would definitely make their appearances.
After that, we’d have the Four Continents Championships (February) where Yuuri would skate his short and free and where we’d see the other non-European skaters skate once more.
And then the climax of the season (or of the series) would be Yuuri and Victor skating in the same competition for the first time - the World Championships (March). This is where we would first truly witness their rivalry and how they can handle being fiances and competing skaters at the same time. Their ‘showdown’ and the resolution of conflicts (if there will be any) between them would be at the height of the finale.
Now, you may think that this would cover only about 6 episodes of the season and you’re right! But the creators could use the remaining time for more casual, daily life episodes, like episode 10 of s1, which help us learn more about the characters. Deeper character exploration, backstories, more conflicts, more resolutions, more development - that could be where the extra time goes. I’m assuming we’d also see Victor and Yuuri practice with the other Russian skaters which should be awesome because they’re all a hilarious bunch.
Of course, the anime could also fast-forward all of that and we could just get to watch the next year’s Grand Prix Series, but knowing the creators, they’ll want to show us something new (especially that we’d miss out on some part of those 9 months between the end of one GPF and the start of the next GP series, which would be a pity). At the same time, if they want to show us something new/different, they would have to start with a new skating season, aka next year’s Grand Prix Series, because otherwise, Yuuri (and all the others, for that matter) will still be skating the same programs we’ve seen in season 1, since figure skaters only create new programs for new seasons. The only new thing we’d really see, if s2 would start where s1 ended would be Victor’s programs.
So yeah, imo, it seems like it’d make most sense if season 2 of YOI picked up almost right where season 1 ended, but at the same time, I’m not quite sure about that because then we would get literally only two new skating routines (perhaps more if they added more characters).
people can say whatever they want about larries but in the end of the day it wont change how much they deeply adore louis and harry and you can see it from even the simplest things like the tags they put when they reblog from us and i creep and read them like yeah ive seen some cute ones for louis and harry separately (ive been running this blog for almost 3 years now ive read them all lol) but for some reason reading the tags people post for louis and harry are so damn cute and so so so pure i just i literally want to hug every single one of you lol its always in this like adoring almost motherly tone when i read the tags like very proud like, “yes these two grown men are my babies, they are in love hello yes look at them ima reblog them for you guys can see my beautiful babies” anyways this is really random but idk i was reading some tags and i just i love you guys, im so glad louis and harry have such a amazing, loving, support system nomatter what people may say or think or whatever may be going on around them currently it will never change the fact that you guys love them so damn much and all you want is for them to be happy and feel loved and since you cant tell them you have these blogs, tags, etc. showing everyone else how much you love them and thats beautiful.
He would want to sign up for any part that Bryan created for him.
He thinks that Will’s being ‘on the spectrum’ is misdirection - he’s so open, he presents himself as the opposite as self-protection.
Could Will be a Christian Grey type? No! Will would be the world’s worst billionaire - he’d just get another dog or two but basically continue living in the same way.
To describe Will and Hannibal’s relationship, he used the chess player metaphor again. ‘For both of them, it’s a relief from loneliness. And I guess that’s love, right? …Suddenly the world makes more sense.’ (He also insisted again that theirs is ‘platonic’ love - BUT he sort of took it back once Bryan appeared. Maybe by 'platonic’ he just means that they haven’t been banging away pre-S4?!)
Will is 'plenty dark’ even without Hannibal.
'His mental makeup is something he was born with.’
Will’s dogs were 'adorable’ but not trained - they were rescue dogs, so they kept running away!
Is Will a good man?
He’s 'trying to be a good man’. 'He’s desperately trying to be better than he is’.
Will is 'trying to justify his relationship with Hannibal’ by attempting to put him away - he feels guilty about the relationship.
Hugh knew that Bryan wanted to use Nik Kershaw’s 'Wouldn’t It Be Good?’ cover by Shy Boy at the end of S1 Ep1, when Will visits Abigail in the hospital and finds Hannibal there. 'I had it in my mind’ during filming of the scene.
He once joked with Mads about how Will would have reacted when he read what Hannibal had written about him - he thinks there was probably a 'don’t let Will see this’ book that Hannibal burned before they burn the books together at the end of S2.
Will’s rejection of Hannibal in Digestivo…
He had to explain to Mads what 'drop the mic’ means!
Will is using Hannibal’s 'soft spot’ for him to defeat him, rather than getting physical like at the end of S2. He also 'genuinely wants to break up with him’.
Hugh thinks that Will and Molly would have got married in a registry office - he never imagined them having a proper wedding.
When Will asks Bedelia 'Is Hannibal in love with me?’…
'Will has probably, in some way, never conceived the possibility that Hannibal could feel love’ because of Hannibal’s 'black heart’. Will has 'had love put off on a kind of pedestal’ and considered it an ideal. Then he sits with Bedelia thinking 'Oh crap, maybe this thing I’m feeling is, like, love’. And it horrifies him because it’s ‘dirty and awful’, which he didn’t think love could be.
In the clifftop house, when Will draws his gun…
'Will is playing both sides’ and 'had some ambivalence in what was going on’. He was probably about '50/50’ about watching Dolarhyde 'change’ Hannibal and was still feeling that ambivalence when he drew his gun.
Will would be 'very happy at the table’ in the post-credits scene of S3’.
His 'bitchiness’ with Bedelia wasn’t dictated by rivalry over Hannibal’s 'friendship or love’. He just thought she 'had it coming’ because of the choices she had made.
After the fall, there would have to be a lot of recuperation! After that, a character reset for Will is likely. However, Will would not have completely 'sloughed off’ his empathy because it’s the basis of the show.
They definitely went off the cliff. It was what Will had to do - kill Hannibal and end himself.
Hannibal’s 'secret magical toolbox’ is probably what helped them survive!
'For a minute, he has become Hannibal… For Will, that might as well be an eternity… He’s seen how far he can go and pretty much that’s hand-in-hand with Hannibal.’
'That stain is now indelible’ so he feels he has to end himself because there’s no way back for him to who he was.
'I don’t think this show exists without Will’s empathy’ - he thinks that for a while Will could be 'bleached’ or 'cleansed’ of that quality by Hannibal, but it wouldn’t last for long.
'Hannibal’s always going to have to fight for him’.
SELECTED COMMENTS BY BRYAN
Bryan wanted to use Nik Kershaw’s 'Wouldn’t it be good?’ cover by Shy Boy at the end of S1 episode 1, when Will visits Abigail and finds Hannibal there.
'The compassion between Will and Hannibal is all based on the fact that they understand each other.’
The Achilles and Patroclus exchange was intended to suggest romance between Hannibal and Will.
How Hannibal would react on seeing the firefly man…
'There was a version of the scene where he did see it… Hannibal was watching Jack watch it and he was very proud.’
'Bedelia was navigating to be the last wife standing and then in came Will and said, 'No!’
In S4, 'I don’t think we would ever lose Will’.
They wouldn’t 'Abigail’ Will.
He and Hugh 'wrote the last scene of Season 3 together’ and Hugh is his 'crutch’.
'Who’s the top and who’s the bottom? The answer is they flip’.
Bryan’s favourite line from the show is 'It’s beautiful’ - partly because Hugh wrote it!
The original plan for the arc after Season 3 was for a season of Will and Hannibal, a season dealing with The Silence of the Lambs story, and then a season in which Will and Clarice hunt Hannibal!!
