this is the last one

Okay but this is the first time someone has called Yurio something “masculine”/”strong” and it clearly means a lot to him. People usually use terms like fairy or princess when describing him (JJ even goes as far as calling him a girl and Lilia uses prima ballerina which is a female only term). Throughout the show, Yurio struggles a lot with people calling him “feminine” terms and is constantly trying to push his bad boy image in an attempt to make himself seem more tough/manly. To have Otabek read him “correctly” so to speak obviously makes him visibly happy and I think this is one of the reasons he’s so quick to accept the friendship invitation.

Conclusions:
- Ai was the baby of the group until Momo showed up.
- You know Nagisa has played the age card on Rei.
- Haru is the oldest in general.
- Sosuke and Makoto are absolutely the mom and dad duo of the group, despite not being the oldest.
- In real time, they’re probably all in college by now (except maybe Momo).
- I still love these boys.
