During particularly long weeks (like this one wtf) it helps to think about the fact that Victor dislikes JJ for being rude to Yuuri, and that NEITHER JJ NOR YUURI KNOW THIS. JJ had no idea he was being dismissive, and Yuuri thinks it’s only natural to be dismissed.
Obviously JJ assumes that Victor is intimidated by his superior athleticism (poor dude) but Yuuri is totally lost.
“He’s not that bad?” he whispers, once per competition.
“Hm?” Victor says, at normal volume. “James Joyce?”
“You know his name! I know you know his name!”
“Sweetheart,” Victor says. “Why wouldn’t I know LL Cool J.”
Eventually Victor’s dislike fades into mild-to-moderate irritation. That doesn’t stop him from leaning over, at the precise moment JJ is reciting his wedding vows, and murmuring “Who’s that.”
Yuuri snorts loud enough that he apologizes for half the reception.
