WHY WOULD I TRY TO STOP YOU (re your tags). He probably sends the hair to the ISU after they give him too much shit for some him-ness he's committed. Yuuri is somewhere in Japan clutching a poster to his chest with one arm, a pair of scissors in his other hand. HIS HAIR IS ALREADY SHORT BECAUSE HE KEEPS GETTING INTO FIGHTS BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT BIG VIKTOR NIKIFOROV CRUSH. and then he goes to college and drnk yuuri keeps getting their hair cut bc he keeps getting into fights.
My dude I did mean it as a warlord AU but now I’m having so much fun imagining Viktor “Extra” Nikiforov being this perfect, angelic little pacifist his entire life until the Russian Skating Federation just goes Too Far One Day and he cuts off his hair and mails it
Yakov’s hair is long because he’s given the fuck up on all of this shit.
Mari’s hair was down to her back until last year when someone unaware that Yuuri was her brother said something nasty about him, three rows behind her in one of her bi-weekly business classes. She stood up, cut her ponytail at the elastic and calmly set it on the guy’s desk before punching him in the jaw.
Yuri P’s hair was very, very short all through his childhood until he realized how sad it kept making his grandfather to have to cut his hair whenever he got into a fight–him being too young to do it himself. Nowadays, Yuri just yells at people.
Phichit is one of those rare people who doesn’t get in fights; he just cuts his hair for the Aesthetic so people think he has a hidden mean streak but no.
(Or maybe he’s just being extra and considers all the fights he gets in on Twitter over Yuuri’s honor as valid enough altercations to cut his hair over.)
Yuuri becomes a calmer person after he meets Viktor. He looks in the mirror one day and realizes that his hair is starting to creep down his neck. Touches a wavy bit that’s just starting to flop over his eye. Smiles.
